What’s happening in Ukraine part 6

Ukraine begins to blackmail the global world with hunger

This follows from the threats of the head of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine A. Danilov who said: “If the issue is not resolved that our country is safe, no grain will go anywhere to anyone.”

Now it is clear who prevents the export of grain already purchased by other countries from the country. It shows the complete inadequacy of the Ukrainian side and that it is much more reliable to negotiate with Putin.

As of June 9, 2022, on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, a group of troops of the DPR and LPR, with fire support from the Russian Armed Forces, liberated and established full control over 231 settlements, including Svyatogorsk and Tatyanovka.

Battles are being waged for Slavyansk.

Western experts have repeatedly warned that the weapons transferred to the Kiev regime fall into the hands of terrorists from other regions of the world.

This opinion has received new confirmation. Foreign mercenaries from the illegal armed formation “Sheikh Mansour Battalion” are fighting on the side of Ukraine. They boasted about the new weapons that they managed to take out of Ukraine. They do this under the patronage of representatives of the military-political leadership in Kiev.

A stable channel has been created for the transfer of weapons to the territory of Syria for military operations against the Armed Forces (of the legitimate government in Damascus) and units of the Russian Armed Forces in this country. The “route” of arms traffic runs through Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.

The terrorists even announce new supplies from their agents to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Thus, Western governments turned out to be arms suppliers for radical Islamists in the Middle East.

First Deputy Minister of Information of the DPR Daniil Bezsonov

Zelensky acknowledged that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not capable of conducting a counteroffensive in any direction in the current situation. He told the Financial Times about that. He also transparently hinted that Ukraine needs even more equipment from Europe, because the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot launch a counteroffensive just because of the lack of equipment, and Zelensky allegedly worries about the lives of soldiers.

Meanwhile, the Western community continues to provide military assistance to Ukraine, although not in the amount that Zelensky would like. So, let me remind you that 🇺🇸 the United States agreed to send HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems, Mi-17 helicopters, artillery ammunition, anti-tank weapons, vehicles and other means to Ukraine for $700 million.🇸🇪 Sweden also transferred weapons to Ukraine – 22 M109 self-propelled howitzers of 155-mm ammunition. Sweden would have written off these howitzers over time anyway: in their arsenal, the Swedes replaced them with new Korean weapons.

🇩🇪 The Germans are not in a hurry to send all the promised weapons to Ukraine, but Scholz declares that Germany is one of the leaders in military assistance to Ukraine, which amuses the Ukrainian “patriots” a lot: Berlin has promised a lot, yes. But in reality, the situation is exactly the opposite. And it’s not only Germany, who doesn’t hurry to send military aid to Ukraine – the transfer of weapons from Europe is stalled in general. But Scholz doesn’t forget to remind Zelensky that “everything possible must be done to export grain from Ukraine.”

In terms of armament, the blame for everything, most likely, is that the Europeans are not sure that their armored vehicles and artillery will be able to exist on the territory of Ukraine for any long time and generally reach the front. 🇪🇸 Spain, which promised Leopard 2 tanks, has not delivered them yet. 🇬🇷 Greece did not transfer weapons to Ukraine either: it promised a batch of Soviet BMP-1s, but there are no deliveries. No, because Germany promised the Greeks in return (instead of the BMP-1 sent to Ukraine) to send Marder. The Greeks did not receive anything from the Germans, so they decided not to send anything to the Ukrainians either.

Probably the situation with the destroyed T-72 tanks near Kyiv, delivered to Ukraine from Eastern Europe, poured cold water on the Europeans. They figured it out that such multimillion-dollar assistance would backfire by undermining their own combat capability, and in Ukraine their equipment was being scrapped at the speed of Kalibr rockets flying at targets.

Well, in parallel, I would like to note that within Ukraine itself, the tectonic fault continues to worsen: Transcarpathia is increasingly moving away from Ukraine, is not subject to the central government. Thus, the head of the Transcarpathian region, Viktor Mikita, said that Transcarpathia would not share with the rest of Ukraine the European fuel supplied to the region until it covered all its internal needs. The “patriots” of the Ukraine extremely resent this statement.

In such circumstances, it would be foolish for Zelensky to talk about a counteroffensive, but we don’t expect anything smart from him. Yes, and Arestovich often spoke about the counteroffensive in his time. Well, what’s the matter, does it ebbed? Soon, even in Transcarpathia, you will send people to the ATO, and Americans already have missed 200 thousand soldiers. What the embarrassing situation. And also there’s still no military equipment…

Editors note

The bit they forget when talking like this is to be good liars you need good memories.

Now I don’t seem to have heard anything or seen anything that remotely mentions what they are spending the $40 billion on? I mean that’s more than the US spent in 12 months at war in Afghanistan. Surely the West would be saying something about how this taxpayer’s money is being spent?

Well, don’t hold your breath, because I can tell you that it’s a money-laundering system. Biden, Boris and a few of Biden’s team are all getting pretty rich out of this.

This is the biggest shift in wealth in history. They are emptying everything for themselves.

Assad: Syria supports Russia as it returns the lost international balance of power

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in an interview with RT Arabic:

Russia is an ally of Syria who, if he wins the battle or if his political position in the international arena becomes stronger, then this is to our advantage.

Or, from another point of view, we can say that the strength of Russia today contributes to the return of the lost international balance, even if this return is partial. And this balance, which we want so much, is reflected primarily in small states, and Syria is one of them.”

The first footage of the battles for Slavyansk. Artillery works.

The Supreme Court of the DPR found a Moroccan citizen and two Britons guilty of mercenaries and other crimes, they were sentenced to death.

I spoke to British Mercenary – Aiden Aslin

He reported from the Donetsk’s custody building. Before he was sentenced. I was going to plead his case but it has fallen on deaf ears. Here’s his report. This report was not taken by me.

The head of the British Foreign Office condemned the death sentence for British mercenaries in the DPR, considering them prisoners of war.

BREAKING, What happened to this small village? The small community are up in arms.

Those who were accepting the migrants into our country had a little bit of a shock when they were told that their village with a population of around 700, was having 1500 migrants, all young middle-aged men within 7 days.

Now they are not happy with the situation and are fighting the council.

It’s these people who know that their towns cannot take in migrants that say “yes we should accept these poor people into our country and we should welcome them”

But now they are landing on these people’s doorsteps they have changed their tune. Interviewed, one lady says “ yes if they come we will welcome them and speak to them, but there’s nothing here for them, no infrastructure, they’ll be so bored.”

Above is a video with some astonishing facts that are kept from the British public by the media and the government.

‼️ BREAKING NEWS – 5G LEGAL ACTION UPDATE‼️

‼️ I AM ECSTATIC WITH THE COURT OF APPEALS SUBSTANTIAL AND MONUMENTAL DECISION TO GRANT PERMISSION FOR THE 5G LEGAL ACTION CASE, TO BE HEARD IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE.

We are delighted to announce that the Court of Appeal has today granted permission for our case to proceed on two grounds:

1. The failure to provide adequate or effective information to the public about the risks and how, if it is possible, it might be possible for individuals to avoid or minimise the risks;

2. (a) The failure to provide adequate and sufficient reasons for not estabolishing a process to investigate and establish the adverse health effects and risks of adverse health effects from 5G technology and/or discounting the risks presented by the evidence available; and/or (b) failure to meet the requirements of transparency and openness required of a public body.

These grounds advance a breach of the Human Rights Act 1998 by omissions and failings in violation of the positive obligations to protect human life, health and dignity, required to be met by Articles 2, 3 and/or 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The case will now be sent back to the Administrative Court and we await the directions as to the full hearing in due course.

‼️My Summary, this effectively means that the Kingdom’s most noble and honourable Lords and Lady Justices presiding at the Court of Appeal, have granted permission for a full Judicial Review hearing to be adjudicated upon in the High Court of Justice, forming the basis of the two grounds, adds significant weight to the action, and not only shows there is a case to be answered too but that 5G poses a risk and danger to Human Life, Health and Dignity, is a substantial and monumental decision by our Honourable Lords and Lady Justices, by the granting of permission on those two grounds.

Finally, with the upmost appreciation and gratitude to the 5G Legal Action Team for all its hard work and persistence over these past two years but equally, I am tremendously grateful to every person, that not only shared and/or campaigned and/or donated to this crowd funder and supported this action but to those who proactively spoke out about the risks and dangers of 5G.

I cannot thank every one of you enough, from the bottom of my heart, for standing up and speaking the real truth without fear.

With eternal gratitude,

Action Against 5G

With “Scamdemic 2” looking set to roll out any time it’s more important than ever that we recognize the shape of the forces lined up against humanity.

There are many oversimplified and/or plain wrong ideas about what the agenda might be & who the players are

💢THE SCAMDEMIC/GREAT RESET IS NOT ABOUT EAST VERSUS WEST

Russia is 100% behind the bogus Monkeypox narrative, just as it was 100% behind the bogus COVID narrative & is already “vaccinating” people.

💢 Russia’s “special operation” in Ukraine is NOT about defeating the WHO or WEF and is NOT ‘anti-globalism’

Russia is 100% behind Agenda 2030, the Great Reset & globalism.

💢Globalism is NOT just another name for US unipolar imperialism.

In fact in many ways the two ‘ideologies’ are antithetical. Globalism as promoted by the WEF advocates for a multi-focal global network and foresees Russia as the new major economic force.

💢 You can be anti-US, anti-West, even ‘anti-imperialist’ & BE A GLOBALIST.

In fact many of the most powerful proponents of globalism are all the above, or claim to be. Globalism is a restructuring of the power dynamic at a Supra-National level.

They may call it different names in different parts of the world. They may even frame it as liberation or egalitarianism to appeal to those seeking justice.

But don’t be fooled. Globalism, by whatever name it’s known, is about the final destruction of human individuality, choice & freedom in the name of a fake & controlled “collectivism”.

And it’s coming to you right now wrapped in a lot of different flags & banners & hiding behind a lot of different Hegelian Dialectics.

So we all need to be vigilant & discriminating & watch & listen carefully to the cacophony of ‘information’ being pumped out at us.

We need to avoid retreating into old paradigms that might feel reassuring but can make us miss the fast-developing new reality.

We can’t afford to get this wrong.

RUSSIA’S MAIN PATRIOT

A short video about the most effective agent of the Kremlin, who caused irreparable damage to the economy of Ukraine and the EU countries. Who stimulated the creation and development of new corruption schemes in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. With his active assistance, terrorists from Azov are serving their sentences near Azovstal. He has disarmed Germany and does not intend to stop there. All this is the merit of just one person and this is his story.

Britons warned of winter blackouts Electricity across the UK could be rationed as the energy crisis deepens, London says

As many as six million British households could be subjected to power cuts this winter if Russian gas supplies to Europe stop, The Times reported Sunday, citing a Whitehall document.

It said that imports of natural gas from Norway could halve next winter amid surging EU demand. Britain buys around half of its total supplies from the Nordic country.

Shipments of liquified natural gas from major producers such as the United States and Qatar could also halve this winter, the UK government warned, pointing to fierce global competition for supplies of the fuel.

Meanwhile, interconnectors from the Netherlands and Belgium could also be cut off in winter, as the two countries struggle meeting their own demand.

The UK, which has vowed to end the importation of Russian oil by the end of the year, is now seeking to bolster electricity supply by extending the life of its coal and aging nuclear power stations

What is happening in Ukraine? Here’s the reality.

For clarity:

The enemy ( Ukrainian forces ) are actively using large-calibre artillery with a calibre of 152 mm. Here is such a shell weighing about 40 kg and flying at a speed of about 1000 meters per second.

In the Leninsky district,

A civilian born in 1959 died as a result of a direct hit on a residential building.

The British media go through the floor. Again

They massively write about the fact that Putin may be dead, and his place is taken by a ringer. MI6 intelligence supplied them with information of this level!

Senior MI6 bosses say the Russian president has been seriously ill and that if he had died, his cronies would hush it up to keep power for as long as possible.”

So, the media write that Putin’s recent speeches were recorded in advance, and the body double could be used for the first time at the Victory Day Parade. Conspiracy theorists rejoice, we sympathize with all other readers.

Hit in the Voroshilovsky district of Donetsk.

The area of the embankment of the river Kalmius. Artillery shelling.

Air defense is actively working over the center of Donetsk. Three air targets were shot down in 15 minutes.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine increased the intensity of shelling of Donetsk

The Armed Forces of Ukraine increased the intensity of shelling of Donetsk and Gorlovka, firing more than 100 shells from 122-mm MLRS BM-21 Grad, 155- and 122-mm field artillery.

As a result of Ukrainian aggression, there are casualties among the civilian population. Facts of damage to residential buildings and civilian infrastructure are recorded.

From the positions of Ukrainian militants in Avdeevka, 16 152-mm caliber shells were fired in the Kalininsky and Budyonnovsky districts of Donetsk.

As a result of the shelling of the Budyonnovsky district of Donetsk, Ukrainian war criminals wounded 3 civilians. For 8 years of the war, this place has never come under fire. Rear area of Donetsk.

Also in the Leninsky district a woman was killed.

Sea of calm: Russian military boats escort ships

The first ships blocked by Ukrainian nationalists left Mariupol. The commercial port has already received, loaded and sent the first dry cargo ship from Russia.

The water area and coast of the Sea of Azov are completely cleared of mines. The sappers worked for several weeks and neutralized more than 13 thousand explosive objects. A sapper robot was also involved in the work.

Now the Mariupol water area is a safe water area. All ships entering and leaving the port are accompanied by Russian military boats.

Nazi from the 36th brigade confessed to the murder of a prisoner

A former soldier of the 36th brigade spoke about how he and his fellow soldiers killed a prisoner after drinking alcohol.

I lost my arm, got into a hospital, it was full, I returned to the bunker. I was laying there for 3 days, they brought a prisoner, he was with us, in the bunker. Painkillers did not help me, I drank alcohol, my friend persuaded me to kill the prisoner. I could not , he killed him and gave me the knife.”

It seems that Ukrainians have finally begun to suspect something is wrong ….

Several petitions have already appeared on various platforms with a request to stop the export of grain from Ukraine. Residents of the country remembered the Holodomor and asked to prevent its repetition.

The compilers of one of them referred to UN data, where the organization calls the current situation the largest food crisis in history.

Due to the sanctions and the Ukrainian crisis,the world’s wheat reserves will last for 10 weeks,” the authors noted.

In Europe, however, they only plan to accelerate the pace of export of grain from the territory of Ukraine, and the country’s authorities contribute to this.

The Kyiv authorities are also exporting grain along the Danube in order to pay for the supply of weapons,” the text of the petition also says.

The food boom in Ukrainian stores has already begun – salt and cereals, including buckwheat, have disappeared.

But the authorities of Ukraine continue to sell our grain to Europe, not thinking about the Ukrainians and the coming famine,” the petitioners concluded.

They made us kneel.

A resident of the Primorsky district talked about humiliation at the hands of Ukrainian fighters.

Kiev has offered Berlin to abandon the Nord Stream – 1 gas.

You may support Ukraine, however, the reality is that Kyiv is tightening the supply of gas by order of the United States of America.

Germany should stop or reduce the transit of gas through this pipeline, the head of the Ukrainian GTS said.

Transit of Russian gas to Europe before the imposition of a full embargo by the EU should be directed through the Ukrainian gas transportation system, and not through Nord Stream 1. Germany can unilaterally restrict gas transportation through Nord Stream 1 without coordination with Hungary or other countries, he declared.

At the same time, Ukraine itself has significantly reduced the transit of “blue fuel” to Europe through its territory since May 10 and refuses to replenish pumping volumes.

Severodonetsk is under our full control. The Nazis have been defeated. All their positions have been destroyed. The city has been liberated.

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️ VERY GRAPHIC.

As a result of Ukraine hitting school № 22 in the centre of Donetsk, two people were killed and more than ten were injured.

Whatever food you grow, grow a lot more now!

58 food processing plants, farms, fisheries cattle farms and more have been destroyed.

From London to Yemen, there have been fires, poisoning avian bird flu, explosions and euthanasia that destroy the world’s food supply.

Over 5.1 million chickens have been killed, deer, pigs and cows. Of course, this is all a conspiracy theory and for us conspiracy theorists we’re told it’s a coincidence. Last month it was 24 fires, this month it’s 58. The billionaires are stocked up for years ready to watch us all starve.

If you grow food I suggest you plant a lot more NOW. Don’t take my warning with a pinch of salt, this is more likely to kill you than the vaccine.

Interesting to see the media call the food processing fires a “conspiracy theory”

There is growing concern farmers worldwide are reducing chemical fertilizer, which may threaten yields come harvest time, according to Bloomberg. The repercussions could be huge: Lower yields may exacerbate the food crisis. 

There are alarming signs commercial farmers in top growing areas in the world are decreasing the use of essential nutrients — nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. 

Revealed last week, SLC Agricola SA, one of Brazil’s largest farming operations, managing fields of soybeans, corn, and cotton fields in an area larger than the state of Delaware, will reduce the use of fertilizer by 20% and 25%.

Ukraine cuts Russian gas to Europe, threatening energy supply

So without any provocation, Zelensky cuts off European Gas from Russia. This only harms us. But these are orders from the West. Fuel, oil and food are gone in 6 months. I beg you to listen and stop believing the media when they say everything is a conspiracy theory.

Kyiv cites “force majeure” to halt a third of Russian transited gas flow to Europe, while Gazprom says there have been no issues that would justify the move.

Gas from this connection will not be accepted into the transit system of Ukraine starting at 7 am on Wednesday, OGTSU said. Sokhrankovka accounts for almost a third of the Russian gas that transits through Ukraine to Europe – up to 32.6 million cubic meters per day – according to the operators.

[IAF: German energy ministers confirm their supply is as low as 2-3 weeks. Keep an eye on Europe.]

Russian gas conglomerate Gazprom has received no confirmation of force majeure or any obstacles to continued transit of gas through a junction in Lugansk Region, the company said on Tuesday, after Ukraine’s operator OGTSU announced it would halt further deliveries starting May 11, due to the presence of “Russian occupiers.”

Gas Transit Services of Ukraine (OGTSU) declared force majeure on Tuesday, saying that it was impossible to continue the transit of gas through a connection point and compressor station located in the Lugansk area.

India Bans Wheat Exports in Growing Wave of Food Protectionism

India prohibited wheat exports that the world was counting on to alleviate supply constraints sparked by the war in Ukraine, saying that the nation’s food security is under threat. 

Exports will still be allowed to countries that require wheat for food security needs and based on the requests of their governments. All other new shipments will be banned with immediate effect

EVACUATE THE GRAIN

Nearly 25 million tonnes of grain stuck in Ukraine, says UN food agency

Nearly 25 million tonnes of grains are stuck in Ukraine and unable to leave the country due to infrastructure challenges and blocked Black Sea ports including Mariupol, a U.N. food agency official said on Friday.

“It’s an almost grotesque situation we see at the moment in Ukraine with nearly 25 mln tonnes of grain that could be exported but that cannot leave the country simply because of lack of infrastructure, the blockade of the ports,” Josef Schmidhuber, FAO Deputy Director, Markets and Trade Division told a Geneva press briefing via Zoom.

Schmidhuber said the full silos could result in storage shortages during the next harvest in July and August.

The Head of the WTO announced, “It would help the world if we could evacuate this grain (from Ukraine),” — Earlier this week, the head of the World Trade Organization told Reuters she was “seriously worried” about spiralling food prices and seeking solutions alongside other partners.

If Money Is Speech, CBDCs Should Be Tools for Freedom

There is no constitutional right guaranteeing that you can spend your money as you please. Although there should be, and there’s precedent for thinking that money is akin to speech and spending it (within the bounds of established law) a form of expression.

This particular problem has come to light as the U.S. government studies a potential central bank digital currency (CBDC). A digital dollar, as it is sometimes called, is essentially a way to make an internet-native version of cash and coins.

This article is excerpted from The Node, CoinDesk’s daily roundup of the most pivotal stories in blockchain and crypto news. You can subscribe to get the full newsletter here.

Central bankers, if they support CBDCs, often point to the greater control a state-run monetary ledger affords over microeconomic and macroeconomic policy. A digital dollar could help automate tax collection, streamline welfare payments and inform decisions around setting interest rates.

Like everything else in the internet age, CBDCs are about big data: State-run ledgers would give near-complete insight into how money is being spent in a country. In fact, Agustin Carstens, general manager of the “central bank of central banks,” the Bank for International Settlements, said:

“We don’t know who’s using a $100 bill today and we don’t know who’s using a 1,000 peso bill today.” With CBDCs, that would be possible, he noted.

That’s quite dystopian for anyone who thinks there ought to be a measure of financial privacy – the same privacy afforded today by physical cash. Further, because CBDCs are mostly just research projects at this stage, they invite a high degree of skepticism and conspiracy theories.

Namely, people are worried “Govcoins” could become tools for coercion or censorship.

“Should people be encouraged to eat the foods decided best for them, such as a plant or insect-based diet? CBDCs could do the trick. Should people be limited in how much they can spend per week on carbon-intensive purchases? CBDCs could help with that too,” N.S. Lyons, author of The Upheaval Substack, wrote last week in conservative-leaning digital mag City Journal.

It shouldn’t be controversial to say that governments want insight and oversight over monetary flows. They enact policies that degrade privacy and set limits around how money can be spent; often in service of the noble aim of combating terrorist financing and money laundering.

Foot-and-mouth disease detected in Indonesia; Australian livestock sector on alert

So the cattle next, because cattle are dirty! Soon there will be no protein and the UN will co. e in and save the day with their already prepared protein alternative, crushed grasshopper, mealworm and cockroaches.

Australian biosecurity officials are on high alert after reports of more than 1,000 cases of foot-and-mouth disease in Indonesia, with fears that a large multi-state outbreak here could cost the industry billions of dollars.

The Cattle Council of Australia on Friday said it had received advice that 1,247 cases of the contagious disease had been detected in four East Java provinces — Gresik, Lamongan, Sidoarjo and Mojokerto.

In a statement to members, the council said it understood Indonesia was in the process of preparing an emergency declaration and collecting samples to determine an appropriate vaccine.

“We are engaged with Indonesia and also working across our networks to establish the support that Australia and other global and regional organisations can offer to support a swift and effective response,” the council’s statement said.

“Indonesia is our closest neighbour with whom we share an incredibly important bilateral trading partnership. The proximity of Indonesia has major implications for our biosecurity system and disease-free status.”

Maine lobster industry fighting shutdown for ‘endangered whale’

Like the Canadian fishers and all the other food producers that have been regulated or shutdown since 2020 – in many cases there are fights going on in the courts. But what’s more significant is that all these legal battles flow from a calculated wave of shutdowns in disparate areas and industries, happening in concert, in a year while everyone was confused.

They shook up the nest and then threw a web over producers around the world.

Food Supply Shutdown : Deer, fish, pigs euthanized; crops not planted

An observing alien species would ask itself, “Why is humanity destroying ALL of their food sources?”

In this special Ice Age Farmer broadcast, Christian has a candid conversation about the overwhelming number of attacks on our food supply and animals. With crops unplanted and with more food facilities burning down, the media runs stories about “food fire conspiracy theories.” And it’s not just chickens — the state is also killing deer and fish in the name of stopping diseases. Start growing food now.
