The most effective propaganda is found not in the Sun or on Fox News - but beneath a liberal halo. When the New York Times published claims that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, its fake evidence was believed, because it wasn’t Fox News; it was the New York Times. The same is true of the Washington Post and the Guardian, both of which have played a critical role in conditioning their readers to accept a new and dangerous cold war. All three liberal newspapers have misrepresented events in Ukraine as a malign act by Russia - when, in fact, the fascist led coup in Ukraine was the work of the United States, aided by Germany and NATO.

Ukrainian, Polish, U.S Army and Marines taking part in exercise Rapid Trident being held at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center (IPSC) in Yavoriv, Ukraine. The exercise was conducted July 20-31, 2015.
Those contacts included two phone calls between April and November last year, two of the sources said. By early this year, Kushner had become a focus of the FBI investigation into whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, said two other sources - one current and one former law enforcement official.
Kushner initially had come to the attention of FBI investigators last year as they began scrutinizing former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s connections with Russian officials, the two sources said.
While the FBI is investigating Kushner’s contacts with Russia, he is not currently a target of that investigation, the current law enforcement official said.
The new information about the two calls as well as other details uncovered by Reuters shed light on when and why Kushner first attracted FBI attention and show that his contacts with Russian envoy Sergei Kislyak were more extensive than the White House has acknowledged.
NBC News reported on Thursday that Kushner was under scrutiny by the FBI, in the first sign that the investigation, which began last July, has reached the president’s inner circle.
The FBI declined to comment, while the Russian embassy said it was policy not to comment on individual diplomatic contacts. The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
Kushner’s attorney, Jamie Gorelick, said Kushner did not remember any calls with Kislyak between April and November.
“Mr Kushner participated in thousands of calls in this time period. He has no recollection of the calls as described. We have asked (Reuters) for the dates of such alleged calls so we may look into it and respond, but we have not received such information,” she said.
In March, the White House said that Kushner and Flynn had met Kislyak at Trump Tower in December to establish “a line of communication.” Kislyak also attended a Trump campaign speech in Washington in April 2016 that Kushner attended. The White House did not acknowledge any other contacts between Kushner and Russian officials.
Before the election, Kislyak’s undisclosed discussions with Kushner and Flynn focused on fighting terrorism and improving U.S.-Russian economic relations, six of the sources said. Former President Barack Obama imposed sanctions on Russia after it seized Crimea and started supporting separatists in eastern Ukraine in 2014.
After the Nov. 8 election, Kushner and Flynn also discussed with Kislyak the idea of creating a back channel between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could have bypassed diplomats and intelligence agencies, two of the sources said. Reuters was unable to determine how those discussions were conducted or exactly when they took place.
Hi. I’m from Ukraine and I want to tell you something. this shit with election happened to us once. We had a strong and clever woman by the name Yulia Timoshenko running against Victor Yanukovich, the worst person ever. The Jerk actually won and EVERYONE regretted it. And he got Yulia Timoshenko in jail on false charges. Than we had the worse presidency which led to Maidan revolution. The only reason we got rid of Yanukovich it because we united and made him run to Russia with tail between his legs. Timoshenko was released from prison. Yanukovich is wanted for high treason.
“Trump can’t do all of this awful stuff, he will be checked”
Yeah, sure. i hope it won’t take hundreds of people dead before you see, that limitations only work when people want them to.
Yanukovich’s actions’ aftermath is Russians invading Ukraine.
I escaped from that shit, I came to America and hoped to be safe.
I guess people are not so different in different countries as everyone thinks.
Swastika in modern military forces (photos from Finland, Lithuania, and Latvia)
One of the “scariest” things about AZOV for brainwashed western journalists is its “intolerant” symbol, which includes the Black Sun and the Idea of the Nation (aka “the flipped wolfsangel”):
However, these liberal watchdogs would be surprised to know that several European countries, including Finland, Lithuania, and Latvia (all three are members of the EU) are officially using the swastika in their military forces and nobody makes a big deal out of it. Now imagine the shitstorm that would come if AZOV (or any other military unit in Ukraine) was to publicly use the swastika symbol…
Meanwhile, the following photos from Finland, Lithuania, and Latvia have never raised any questions:
