The following articles from The Remnant, provide further insight into the current crisis in Ukraine.
FOLLOW THE SCIENCE:
An Honest Look at the Crisis in Ukraine
by Christopher A. Ferrara
War is no laughing matter. But what is laughable, as well as criminal, is the manner in which the perpetually lying media and the bipartisan War Party have managed to hide the historical facts which demonstrate that what is happening in Ukraine at this very moment is yet another debacle orchestrated by the arrogant buffoons who administer an American foreign policy that could not have been better designed to destabilize existing regimes, throw vast regions of the world into turmoil, and generate endless war and suffering that never touches the instigating elites…
Think what you will of Putin and his move against Ukraine, but who among us can deny, given our bitter experience, the truth of his observation on February 24 that even “US politicians, political scientists and journalists write and say that a veritable ‘empire of lies’ has been created inside the United States in recent years.
ON THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE CRISIS:
A Message from Abp. Viganò, Former Apostolic Nuncio to the U.S.
by Carlo Maria Viganò
In the Russian-Ukrainian crisis…we must clearly recognize and denounce the coup d’état of the deep state worldwide, which has worked to install the New World Order, involving the WEF, NATO, UN, the European Union, the IMF…
If we look at what is happening in Ukraine, without being misled by the gross falsifications of the mainstream media, we realize that respect for each other’s rights has been completely ignored; indeed, we have the impression that the Biden Administration, NATO and the European Union deliberately want to maintain a situation of obvious imbalance, precisely to make impossible any attempt at a peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, provoking the Russian Federation to trigger a conflict. Herein lies the seriousness of the problem. This is the trap set for both Russia and Ukraine, using both of them to enable the globalist elite to carry out its criminal plan.
You skipped the first line:
It was in the first draft. I decided to delete the light-hearted intro, as it did not fit in with the article excerpt.
There are several Covid-Putin memes and toons exposing the hypocrisy of the West.
One thing is emerging – India isn’t buying the West’s narrative:
Gravitas Plus: Did NATO push Ukraine into war?
The Ukraine conflict has been ‘westsplained’ enough. On Gravitas Plus, Palki Sharma tells you how Western arrogance & NATO’s expansionism are also to blame, how their actions precipitated the crisis in Ukraine.
India is pro-Russia.
But this is real, objective reporting. This is what journalism is supposed to be. High quality, unbiased reporting and an excellent summary of the NATO expansionism, in under 10 minutes.
No reasonable person can support a war and the destruction of life and property. But the unnecessary provocation by the West and a disregard for the consequences, has led to this point.
I am deeply uncomfortable with the concept that Putin was credibly threatened by NATO (NATO!) and that even if Ukraine wanted to join NATO, that is a justification for invasion. Just becuase the WEF loving arseholes running The west are our enemies, does not mean we should be interested in giving Putin any slack. He is not our friend.
In my response to the previous article, I outlined a number of principles under which the Russian invasion is prima-face wrong and unjustified.
No matter what you think of the Biden administration – or any other US actions – yet another principle needs to be upheld.
“Two wrongs do not make a Right”.
If Putin and the Russian Federation were moral, rational actors, then they would not react by taking a path which inevitably leads to innocent deaths.
One is reminded of nothing so much as watching a 120kg man beating on a 50kg woman, while the bystanders claim that “she asked for it”.
Maybe it is more correct to ask why – after long experience under the Soviet jackboot, and increasing awareness that Putin has ambitions to resurrect the Russian Empire in some form – any former Soviet satellite state would NOT want more effective guarantees of their independence than doubtful Russian benevolence.
But yeah, “She provoked him”…. pardon my scepticism.
If any of you are still of a mind to question the historical relationship between the Ukraine and Russia, look up the Holodmor..
That is the Great Famine, for which the Russian Government was directly responsible, and in which some 3.5 MILLION ethnic Ukrainians starved to death.
Maybe there is a reason why the Ukranians are not welcoming the Russians as liberators.
Add this to the mix:
Just highlighting this from MSNBC to point out the MSM narrative is beginning to crack:
Russia’s Ukraine invasion may have been preventable
It’s not about “the narrative”.
It’s about objective reality.
NATO is not an existential threat to Russia. Not even a security threat. It has only ever been a threat to a Russian plans for future expansionism.
In other words, Russia objects to NATO membership for Ukraine, because it would stop Russia doing what Russia is doing now – undertaking an illegal, unjustified invasion.
Lying or “gaslighting” is a normal tactic under documented Russian military doctrine. Their own manuals and reports discuss it openly.
The NATO treaty is quite clear, and has been for the whole of its existence …. any nation can apply to join. This was accepted by the Russians when Yeltsin signed the treaty guaranteeing Ukrainian independence, INCLUDING the right to enter into treaties and alliances. It only became a “problem” for Russia after Putin revived dreams of Russian expansion.
Former Russia ambassador William Burns – now Joe Biden’s CIA director – admitted in a 2008 security cable leaked by WikiLeaks that NATO expansion to Ukraine would result in a war with Russia and a civil war in Ukraine:
That’s not an admission. That’s a diagnosis.
They are paranoid….
They are paranoid because a state-controlled media has been repeating the same fear-mongering for generations.
All the more reason that the Ukraine should have been given proper protection, because you can never satisfy a paranoid. You treat irrational fears , by exposing them to repeated doses of the reality that they fear, not by cocooning them inside their fantasy.
There was another occasion when we were promised “Peace in our time” in return for giving a paranoid dictator with delusions of grandeur, more of what he wanted. How did that work out?
Only one viewpoint allowed
Victoria Nuland: Ukraine Has “Biological Research Facilities,” Worried Russia May Seize Them
The neocon’s confession sheds critical light on the U.S. role in Ukraine, and raises vital questions about these labs that deserve answers.
6 hr ago
1. Every nation with a large agricultural sector has “biological” research facilities. Disease control in crops and livestock is a massive issue. Without it, the world would be in famine right now. You think that doesn’t get researched?
2. Research laboratories are not weapon delivery systems. You might put weapons on your enemy’s border, but you don’t put research facilities and factories where your enemy can observe, destroy or capture them. That is against common-sense.
3. Bioweapon research facilities present a very significant security and containment challenge (Look what happened in Wuhan, we think…) It is equally contrary to common-sense to expect that such facilities would be dotted around the landscape with each one presenting additional threats of information and material leaks.
That is before we consider the increased probability of leaks when information, material and personnel are transferred between seperate facilities.
The more secret it is, the more concentrated and secure it will be.
4. Russians lie.
Not just in the general sense that “truth is the first casualty of war”, but as their own published documents reveal, information control and shaping is a normal part of their military doctrine.
I tend to be highly sceptical of conspiracy theories because 99.99% of them fall over when all the relevant information and considerations are made clear. All we have so-far to confirm the Russian claims are spin and guesswork.

The last two years do not, in any way, support that hypothesis.
Conspiracy theories have come of age!
