Editor’s Note: This is a March 30th Lancaster report, where he got into the center of the city to interview some of the families still there. We are seeing a pattern now of the grandparents having died off from lack of care, out of medicine, etc., inside the city.
The screengrab image from the video is his real reaction during his exit from the city with an armed guard, locked and loaded to return fire from an ambush. There is no protection really on these transit buses that are a step up from a Kleenex box for stopping a bullet.
Notice how there is no UN commission on the scene interviewing any of these people for potential war crime trials as witnesses. Thank God for cell phone videos, as we get to see it all, and corporate media does not get to completely edit what we see.
Even the Washington Post has apparently been sucked down into the disinfo swamp. I saw a morning story that led with the routine claim that the Russians were ‘again’ shelling civilian areas in Donetsk. But they never tell why, with Mariupol being virtually an all Russian-speaking city, filled with pensioners in its highrise buildings, why would the Russians want to be killing Russians?
The WaPo editors are even letting this stuff get posted as part of the who can bash Russia the most media contest. I wonder what the prize is. Are they doing this just for the bump in readership?
Our readership is way up, 400% since December, but we don’t have to lie to do it. We have a reputation that we don’t want to lose. I wish some of our competition had similar concerns… Jim W. Dean
I went to the Mariupol City Center and found it to be like Hell on Earth, Here is my Special Report

It takes some patience to watch these as Lancaster’s questions are in Russian, also. I stop the video every time a new text frame comes up and read it, and move on to the next one and it goes faster.
If anyone sees an MSM doing any interviews like this please send them to me. I have not seen one yet, which means they have a lockdown on not wanting Western people to hear these stories. So that now is in our hands to defeat the censoring by omission… JD.
