On May 22, 2018 US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nuaert stated at the 42 second mark in the following video –
“As our special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker pointed out, there is nowhere in the world more dangerous for Russian speakers right now than in eastern Ukraine.”
This statement is quite revealing and paradoxical in its nature due to the fact that the majority ethnic Russian Ukrainian population of over 4 million people in the breakaway regions have voted in 2 plebiscite’s to become independent from the new Ukraine after the 2014 coup led by the Right Sector, and the subsequent war led by the murderous Azov Nazi fascist battalions.
The ethnic Russian breakaway regions have also requested and received over 100 humanitarian aid convoys from Russia over the past 5 years. During this time they have been consistently bombed via indirect fire on a daily basis in their own homes by the Ukrainian fascist forces that drove 350 miles east to Donbass, specifically the Donetsk and Lugansk city regions. A large portion of this Ukrainian bombing campaign and the OSCE’s reaction, or lack thereof, to such murderous activity has been chronologically documented, recorded and archived by American independent reporter Patrick Lancaster who now resides in Donetsk. Patrick undertook this task because the US media failed to visit the breakaway regions and report the real truth about the war, and specifically, the actions of the Ukrainian armed forces which are receiving US financial support and weapons while they carry out this ethnic cleansing of ethnic Russian speakers in the resource rich breakaway regions.
Now here’s where it gets quite paradoxically interesting and relates to the current impeachment drama playing out in the United States.
On November 14, 2019 Nancy Pelosi stated in an on-camera briefing, specifically at the 2:05 mark in the following video, that regarding US military assistance, “Ukraine has lost 11,000, 12,000, 13,000 people fighting the Russian’s, thats why I say all roads lead to Putin”.
