Russia Ukraine 2014: Ukrainian Military Clash with Russian Troops
Published on Mar 5, 2014
NOTE: This is a rather tendentious report on the clash between a Russian unit and Ukrainian garrison troops in Crimea. It is clearly pro Kiev, but the importance here is in the truth contained in the images themselves. As such it is a good document of a tragedy, engineered by the West, that pits essentially brother against brother. The lie implicit in the coverage (and repeated by the YouTube poster) is that “Russia invaded Ukraine,” which never happened.
Russia can’t invade herself
Furthermore, as far as Crimea is concerned, Russian forces have been there all along as per a longstanding treaty, and the whole Ukraine was a member of the Soviet Union until 1991. The tags also imply that it is Putin and Russia that created the current conflict and subsequent bloodshed. This is false. The ugly but still denied reality is that it was Washington and its NATO allies that engineered the coup that toppled the duly elected president of Ukraine (however corrupt, but when have we bothered to overthrow anyone because he was merely corrupt?), substituting in his place a putschist cabal with numerous rightwing and Neonazi figures. The reaction to the brutality of the Kiev regime in suppressing a legitimate rebellion in the East (advised by the Americans) soon transformed itself into an armed struggle that recently ended with the military victory of the self-proclaimed Novorussian nation, comprising the Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk and other territories. Their fate remains undecided at this point, but the new nation has plenty of friends and supporters in Russia itself and around the world.
