Russia Is Dominating Ukraine - Don't Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise
Ukraine & The West Doing Their Best To Control The Narrative
The sheer volume of propaganda during war times is awesome. This Russia-Ukraine war is no different. There is however a distinction this time. Usually both sides of a conflict are engaged in this deceitful media bombardment. What we are now seeing is Ukraine, with the help of nearly every country west of them, drowning the public with one sided lies on the war effort.
News headlines everywhere are making the case that Ukraine is not only holding their own, but actually in some cases pushing Russian forces back. False body counts, imaginary heroes, and fabled martyrs cluttering the West’s MSM news feed in an attempt to make Russia seem weak, and psyoped Ukrainians the heroes.
The “Ghost of Kyiv”, a Ukrainian fighter pilot that had allegedly shot down 6 Russian planes, was completely fabricated nonsense that made its way around the internet. His true identity was never revealed, which is odd considering he would be a perfect poster child for inspiring the Ukrainian army. What actually was revealed, in a video claimed by the Ukrainian government to be the “Ghost of Kyiv” in action, was footage of a combat simulation video game.
Then comes the 13 Ukrainian “martyrs” of Snake Island who were shelled to death after responding, “Russian Warship, Go F*** Yourself”, when Russian naval forces asked them to surrender the island. The supposed audio file of the exchange was eagerly put out by western media outlets, and Zelenskyy titled the 13 border guards “Hero of Ukraine posthumously”. We now know that there were at least 82 Ukrainian border guards, who volentarily surrendered the island to Russian troops and are alive and well. A far cry from the “evil” Russian army killing helplessly stranded Ukrainian soldiers.
The term “Full Scale Invasion” is another piece of propaganda being used by the West to describe the war. Do people really think Russia, host to one of the most powerful militaries in the world, is having a tough time conquering Ukraine? If Russia wanted to, they could swiftly crush Ukraine with inconsequential Russian casualties. From the accounts of people stationed in Ukraine, the only planes flying in that airspace are Russian planes. Kyiv would already be reduced to rubble if Russia was so inclined.
Russia does not want to destroy Ukraine's infrastructure. They can’t afford to rebuild Ukraine especially after all the sanctions that have been placed on them, nor do they want to kill its people. Ukrainians are Russians. They share much of the same blood, and history. Ukraine used to belong to Russia. Putin doesn’t want to obliterate them, which is why he is using soft war tactics to surgically invade the country and uninstall its regime. Using feints, the Russian army has been luring the Ukrainian defense into its attack. Russian troops then fall back and encircle them, forcing the Ukrainians to lay down their arms. That is the reason you’ve been hearing of Russia’s army continuously falling back. Russia has also reserved their more experienced and valued soldiers, instead sending mostly inexperienced young enlistees to the front lines. Most of the Russian bombings have been Ukrainian military installations (as well as US Bio-labs but that’s another topic), and even those are to simply neutralize, not vaporize.
Finally, we see president Zelenskyy handing out fully automatic weapons to civilians and newly freed criminals, in an attempt to defend Kyiv through guerrilla warfare tactics. Does that sound like a country that is successfully defending its land? The Russians are dominating, and they aren’t even trying. Ukraine should fall soon, so let’s just hope outside intervention doesn’t escalate the situation.
