[ Note: This is an item that we missed, a September 7th piece which I am posting tonight as an example of how when people get on the scene of the crime and experience it themselves, they can have the courage to go back home and say they were lied to.
The atrocity stories are beginning to come out now, mostly attributed to the Right Sector and Oligarch funded battalions. Western media of course might mention them on page 42, but that will be it. But it will be our job to not let the victims remain buried, as many of us knew the thugs were going to do this if not tightly controlled, and of course they weren’t.
And the reason for that was they were put into the field and let loose to do this stuff as part of the collective punishment that the oligarchs have seen done in Israel…that you control by inflicting pain and terror. So we will be looking for and posting more of these as they come in…Jim W. Dean ]
Renowned singer and unofficial symbol of Maidan Ruslana said a visit to Donbass opened her eyes. The singer returned from Donetsk and immediately held a press conference where she declared she was wrong, supporting the policy of the Government of Ukraine.
“I came to Donetsk and saw something that I never expected to see. It literally blew my mind There are shells falling on our people! — the outraged Ruslana said. — It is necessary and simple -initiate a cease-fire, end the war and bloodshed. And if the politicians think otherwise it means there’s something fishy, there are some dirty games being played.”
According to Ruslana, Ukrainian journalists must go to the front to find out what is true and what is false.
If you’re so brave, then come with me next time, — the singer invited of one of Kiev reporters. — Then you’ll be able to see everything and understand me.
Artiste told that her car, in which she was traveling with DNR Prime Minister Alexander Zaharchenko, came under fire.
“Who was shooting and whom, whose bullets were those — it’s impossible to make out. But it is quite clear that we shoot our own people. I was the first one to beat my chest and scream that there is no civil war in Ukraine. I was so wrong,” — admitted Ruslana.
The singer said that she was greatly disappointed by the Ukrainian leader Petr Poroshenko. Ruslana told how she went to participate in a demonstration in front of the presidential administration in Kiev on August 28. The rally was arranged by relatives and friends of the Ukrainian military, surrounded in Ilovaisk. Singer was shocked and angered that nobody from the Poroshenko’s people came out to talk to activists.
“You have to work with people, to talk, to convey your position. And let me tell you the shocking phrase, but, nevertheless, I was not heard by Poroshenko, when I stood at the presidential administration. When I arrived at the Donbass,it was Zaharchenko who listened to me and heard me,” — summed up the singer.
Ruslana, known as the winner of Eurovision — 2004, actively participated in the Maidan protests. In early December, the singer even threatened to burn herself on the main square of Kiev, if things in the country «do not change» . Her active civil position won her unofficial title «symbol of the Maidan,” among its activists, and in February, Ukrainian politicians promised her a place in the new parliament.
