I haven’t posted to this blog for a while but posting here because I’m not sure it would be allowed on Facebook. There are things that those who censor our media do now wich us to see or comment on but I think it’s important to see this.
This sort of thing doesn’t just happen as a response to a particular situation, it is symptomatic of an abusive culture. Do we really want to arm and empower that culture?
People may conclude that I am pro-Russian and anti-Ukrainian. I don’t see it like that I consider myself to be pro-peace and anti-abuse and see the Russians as being less anti-peace and pro-abuse than NATO and the Ukrainians. I know that the Ukrainians have historical reasons for hating Russians but the degree of hatred seems psychopathic.
We are often told about Russian war crimes, Russian abuses, but anyone who have been around Twitter and Telegram has seen many instances of Ukrainian war crimes. I’m not going to dismiss the possibility that some of what I see is Russian propaganda .. I find it incredible that the Ukrainian military should weld their own soldiers into suicide tanks.
But so much of the abuse inflicted on dissident citizens is extensively and well documented by Ukrainians themselves. Videos of the apparent national pastime of tying dissenters to lamposts have been posted repeatedly.
