Ukrainian member of Parliament Kira Rudik stated in an interview over the weekend with Fox News that she and her fellow Ukrainian citizens are not only fighting Russia to save their own country but to save the “new world order that includes all the other democratic countries.”
Of course “democratic” is in the eye of the beholder. Canadian PM Justin Trudeau says he’s for “preserving our Democracy” too, even while he was locking truck drivers out of their bank accounts and towing their trucks away to be expropriated by the state. The truckers’ crime? They did not agree with Trudeau’s Covid vaccine mandates and mask mandates.
This is the “democracy” heralded by the proponents of the Great Reset, aka new world order. And that’s what Ms. Rudik says her people in Ukraine are fighting to preserve. The entire interview is interesting but pay particular attention in the segment that runs from the 1:43 mark to 2:05 mark.
Ukraine is a complicated nation with a complicated history.
All we are getting in America is the slanted coverage from the corporate-owned, state-run mainstream media along with, hate to say it, often just as slanted views from the American conservative media. And from what I have been watching over the last four days, these media outlets seem to be pushing the narrative toward all-out war with Russia. This could lead to a nuclear exchange but they don’t care.
They are gearing all their coverage right now around “poor Ukraine,” having to defend their borders with housewives and old men carrying AK-47s.
The mainstream corporate media’s main method of slanting the story is not always in what they are telling you but what they are not telling you. Rather than give you both sides and let you make up your mind which seems right to believe, they want to force-feed you only the narrative that supports an agenda.
And right now that agenda is war.
Ukraine is one of the most corrupt nations in the world and is a large purchaser of U.S. military arms. So don’t think they have nothing but rusty old AKs with which to fend off the Russians.
Ukraine is home to a slew of U.S.-funded biolabs. What are those labs doing and what is their current status? We’d like to know but we hear crickets from the media.
Historically, the land known as Ukraine has always been a fault line between East and West, one that is always simmering and periodically boils over into violence.
Ukraine has only been an independent nation since 1991 but the history of this land around Kiev holds all the characteristics of a killing field. Part of the problem is a familiar one: You have three people groups who are all related but do not like or trust each other, yet found themselves forced to live together in a single nation after the fall of the Soviet Empire. No house divided against itself can stand. Not for long.
Stalin starved to death an estimated 14.5 million Ukrainian peasants between 1932 and 1933 through his forced collectivization program, stealing their land and giving it to his communist comrades who didn’t know how to farm it.
