THEATRE OF WAR



While Putin has been portrayed as Hitler, Stalin and Satan and blamed for everything from Bucha to Kramatorsk (despite compelling evidence to the contrary), the fawn-fest surrounding Zelenskyy-hero is off the scale.

Zelensky has been invited into the ‘family’ of the EU - a toxic, unbalanced and tyrannic family which the UK took 43 years to escape – nonetheless, Ursula von der Leyen was more than happy to welcome ‘Dear Volodymyr’ into the bosom of the fiscally and morally bankrupt EU with the rather troubling historic echo: 'Ve are vith you az you dream of Europe’.

She then assured ‘Dear Volodymyr’ that the services of the EU would be made available 24 hours a day, seven days a week should he need help filling in the paperwork. Which is just as well - he has a war to fight don’t you know.


It would be hard to miss.

There are the multiple Telegram videos pumped out daily, one-to-one interviews to any mainstream outlet happy to embrace his faux victimhood, his chats with Elon Musk about future space projects, filming a documentary with Sean Penn who threatened to smelt both his Oscars if Zelenskyy was not invited to speak at the Oscar Ceremony, which Penn considered would be 'the most obscene moment in all of Hollywood history’ (he hasn’t been paying attention). And of course, there are the multiple addresses to parliaments throughout the western world.

The script department is having a field day, plagiarising everyone from Churchill to King in an impressive whistle-stop tour which surely deserves its own t-shirt. Khaki of course. It’s a busman’s holiday for the costume department.

‘I might not be the strongest warrior’ says Zelenskyy in a rash moment of honesty during a particularly excruciating 60 Minutes fan-boy tribute, 'but I’m not willing to betray anyone’. Did he not understand the Minsk accords? Perhaps Ursula could help Dear Volodymyr with that paperwork. ‘My right was given to me by God’ says Zelenskyy channelling Blair. Actually, it’s been loaned to you by the CIA, MI6, the Federal Reserve, The Council on Foreign Relations, Blackrock, the Rockefellers, The Committee of the 300 or whoever else stands to gain from the colossal money-laundering merry-go-round of warmongering aimed at hiding the mother of all fiscal black holes. War is not personal you understand, just business.

‘There’s a photograph Mr. President of you in Bucha', mourns Scott Pelley 'with an expression on your face that you have not allowed your people to see’. Eh? How did Scott miss the ever-present film crews and press units? Zelenskyy knows exactly where the lens is. This is his moment, and he couldn’t be more ready for his close-up Mr. DeMille.

When Pelley, who refers to Zeleskyy as ’the man who stands between the Russian army and the free world’ (God help us) asks if Vladimir Putin should be prosecuted for war crimes, Zelenskyy who is quite happy to drag as many countries as possible into WWIII (bigger stage) responds: ‘I think everyone who made a decision, who issued an order, who fulfilled an order…I believe they are all guilty’. That’s the cuddly US TV version. Zelenskyy Official Telegram version: The killers, extremists, rapists, marauders who call themselves an army….deserve only death for what they have done’.


That one might come back to haunt him. A 2015 report by the Foundation for the Study of Democracy listed the following techniques as widely used by the Ukrainian armed forces: Electrocution, waterboarding, strangling with a ‘Banderist garrotte’, prisoners sent to minefields and run over with military vehicles, bone-crushing, stabbing, branding with red-hot objects, shooting different body parts with small arms, kept for days at freezing temperatures with no access to food or medical assistance and forced to take psychotropic substances causing agony. ‘An absolute majority of prisoners are put through mock firing squads and suffer death and rape threats to their families’.


It’s not as if Zelenskyy, the SBU, the Aidar and Azov Battalions and the rest of the Ukrainian Armed Forces try to hide their crimes. Mayor of Kreminna, Vlodymyr Strok was murdered for attempting to negotiate peace with Russia, ditto the Mayor of Gostomel, Yuri Prylipko and MP Denis Kireev a member of the Ukranian negotiating team - shot in the head by SBU and dumped in a Kiev street. Arrests include human rights activists, separatists, journalists, opposition leaders and even spouses. Elena Berehnaya (who spoke at the UN about Ukraine’s Nazi uprising), Oleg Novikov (jailed for supporting ‘separatism’), journalists Yuri Dudkin, Dimitry Djangivou and Anna German (whose husband was also taken), activists Mikhail & Aleksander Kononovich and ex opposition MP Viktor Medvedchuk, whose handcuffed image was posted on Zelensky’s official channels.


Zelensky recently extended martial law, banned eleven opposition parties, nationalised all TV channels (predominantly Ukrainian-only) and set up a social credit App Diia – only for the vaccinated - which combines Universal Basic Income, a digital identity and a vaccine passport. Hence ‘cash for vaccines’ which offered a whopping 30 euros for all those willing to play Ukrainian roulette with their health. ‘If people want to go somewhere, vacation or business trip, they must be vaccinated’, announced Zelenskyy.


No wonder he was awarded the John F. Kennedy and Ronald Regan Freedom Awards for defending democracy (apart from the Donbass) and the Media Freedom Award from the Weimer Media Group, even though he really didn’t want to share it.

Zelenskyy’s elbow ‘is deep in blood’ says ex Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, ‘because the military utilizes civilians as hostages on his command’. For the limelight loving Zelenskyy, The Telegram age that has served his PR war campaign so well, might also be the undoing of him.

Ukrainian militia make it easy for human rights organisations by posting their war crimes online. Anyone with a stomach for it can watch the shooting of Russian POWs, the torturing of ‘collaborators’ such MMA fighter Maxim Ryndovsky and Alexander Matjuschenko or videos showing Ukrainian militias using the phones of Russian POWs to taunt the families back home, before executing their relatives.

Azov even admitted to shooting civilians in Mariupol. Who did they blame? Russian soldiers of course, for apparently suggesting the residents of Mariupol wear white ‘Russia-friendly’ armbands so the Azov would mistake them for Russian soldiers. In civilian clothes? So Azov has admitted to shooting civilians. The same Azov Battalion which aims to ‘…lead the white races of the world in a final crusade…against Semite-led Untermenschen’ have been found guilty of carrying out rapes and torture and are currently preventing citizens from leaving Mariupol, according to eye-witness testimony. One thing Azov does draw the line at though, is saluting Zelensky.

Such is the Azov Battalion’s hold over Zelensky, he’s awarded their fighters with multiple medals of honour, invited Azov Battalion members to address the Israeli parliament and named three Kiev streets after Nazi heroes including assassin, ethnic cleanser and Azov icon Stepan Bandera.

Zelensky will give a weapon to anyone prepared to fight for him - including released prisoners, children and the elderly who receive training from the Azov Battalion.

What does Zelenskyy think will happen when the Ukrainian Military and militias hand over his shopping list of; artillery pieces (caliber 155 mm) and ammo; artillery shells (152 mm caliber); multiple Rocket Launch Systems - Grad, Uragan or American M142 HIMARS; APCs, infantry fighting vehicles, etc; tanks (T-72, either American or German analogs); air defense systems (S-300, BUK, or similar modern western air defense systems) and combat drones, to a bunch of killers, addicts, rapists, robbers, drug dealers and Bandera worshippers? Does he think it will save Ukrainian lives?

That’s assuming the hardware even gets that far. Oligarchs aside, Ukraine is not a rich country. Many will be sold on. An armoured reconnaissance patrol vehicle (BRDM-2) already made its way to Kazakhstan where a 35-year-old resident of Atyrau was arrested for trying to sell it, while footage on pro-Russia Telegram channel Intel Slava Z shows a tank being handed over by Ukrainian soldiers to the DPR - and that’s one of the safer final destinations.


None of which appears to bother NATO. Why would it? The US already left $82.9BN of America’s most advanced military technology with the Taliban. America’s involvement in the Russia-Ukraine conflict has nothing to do with helping Ukrainian civilians. Quite the opposite. The aims, as US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken laid out in his April 26th address to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, include the seizing of ‘strategic opportunities’ while ‘undercutting’ the ‘Kremlin’s claims of military might’.


What he failed to mention, is the fortuitous money-laundering opportunity such a conflict presents. Or in Zelenskyy-world, points mean prizes.


Ilya Kiva, ex-deputy of the Verkhovna Rada and Opposition Platform - Party For Life, has accused Zelenskyy of accumulating $1.2BN since he became President. According to Kiva - who is now being charged with treason for among other things accusing Ukraine’s territorial defense of the killings of dozens of civilians in Kiev, exposing Zelenskyy’s oligarch credentials and claiming Zelesnkyy is hiding out in the US embassy in Warsaw – the money was paid in tranches of $12 to $35 million by oligarchs Rinat Akhmetov, Viktor Pinchuk and Igor Kolomoisky wend their way through First Union Bank, Deutsche Bank and Banque Nationale de Paris before landing at the Dresdner Bank Lateinamerika in Costa Rica.


To be fair to Zelenskyy, there is the outside possibility that his producer Kolomoisky has yet to break it to him that this is an actual war. Zelenskyy could well have mistaken the RADA for the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and it's not as though much has changed. He gets his script delivered before heading to make-up and costume where he learns/snorts his lines, before being taken to the set. He could well believe he is the star of the world’s biggest reality TV show ‘Vassal-State-Sweep’ where the Commander-in-Chief with the most vassal states in his trolly at checkout is the winner, automatically qualifying for a place in the forthcoming larger-than-life reality TV extravaganza (set in a jail) ‘I’m a Totalitarian Get Me Out of Here’.

But no. As Zelenskyy told 60 Minutes: ‘This is not a movie’.


No excuses then.

One can only hope some adults arrive to de-escalate NATO and provide Russia with a no-loss-of-face exit. Honouring the Minsk Accords and the promises made by NATO in 1990 would be a good place for the West to start. Again.

As for de-Nazification, you’d think the West would be grateful to Russia, a country that lost 27 million soldiers and civilians (more than the rest of Europe combined) fighting the Nazis in WWII. Surely anyone concerned about a rise in Naziism would be hugging Putin?


Or perhaps not.


In a Draft UN Resolution of 18 Nov 2020 entitled "Combating glorification of Nazism, neo-Nazism and other practices that contribute to fuelling contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance", only two countries voted against the motion: The US and Ukraine. The countries of Europe abstained.


It doesn’t bode well.


As the barium salt clouds gather over New York City, a group of youngsters carrying blue and yellow flags chant “Azov, Azov, Azov” while marches to honour the SS division ‘Galicia’ (recognised at Nuremberg as a criminal organization) are now permitted in Kiev, a city which recently renamed streets in honour of Nazis collaborators responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Jews and Poles during WWII.


Inflation is at a 40-year high, the cost of energy has skyrocketed, there is talk of an imminent stock market crash, supply chains are collapsing, threatening food shortages, banks and venture capitalists are buying up assets, Bill Gates is buying America and governments are printing money like it’s going out of fashion while dipping into our pension pots.


What could possibly go wrong?


As for Zelenskyy, he knows full well the Azov Battalion are not merely people in different costumes, but rather Ayran nationalists who want him dead because he’s Jewish, while The Right Sector and others want him gone because he’s an oligarch.

There is some good news at least. Sean Penn didn't smelt either of his Oscars. He kept one for himself and gave the other to Zelensky for his performance Eternal War Games: The Ukraine Chapter.


God knows he earned it.
