The many precise top-attack hits on #Ukraine’s armor in #Donbas show that #Russia must have used advanced guided artillery ammunition.

#Ukraine’s parliament has passed a law on special status for some districts in eastern Ukraine for 3 years. Amnesty law passed, too.

Russia just replays hitlers strategy. Media make opinion. Any justification.

If Russia is right then Hitler was right and Mexicans invading america are right.

For my part, I am not sure I disagree with tribalism. I agree with it. However, in the choice between corruption, or against corruption, in favor of pervasive lying and against pervasive lying, in favor of prosperity or in favor of poverty, in favor of high trust or in favor of low trust, I choose to be against corruption and against pervasive lying, in favor of prosperity, in favor of high trust, and against everything that Russia stands for and does.

This is just how it is. Bring your invading conquering, corrupt, low-trust, lie-believing, pseudoscientific Russian speakers home to the poverty of your militarism.

Starting with the Kremlin’s promise to respect Ukraine’s border in exchange for Ukraine giving up its nuclear weapons, the words of Russia’s leaders are almost meaningless. They should be judged only by their actions.

You probably understand how the US is largely run by banking interests, and how some S. American and Arab countries are military dictatorships. Russia is a dictatorship of the intelligence service. I realized this only recently. The KGB-turned-FSB. Deception, demoralization, intimidation, bribery, assassination, infiltration of bureaucracies / media. This is Russia.

There is no organization in Russia — political, cultural, business over which they don’t have leverage. According to wikipedia statistics, there is an FSB employee for every 500 Russians. I’ve read elsewhere that there’s one for every 300 Russians.

Most of what they do is no fancy James Bond stuff. They just control the message.

See the famous Yuri Bezmenov interview below.

You can look back earlier in history too — the Treaty of Pereyaslav’s promise to respect sovereignty, Catherine the Great’s promise to Ukraine’s Kozaks that feudalism wouldn’t be imposed.

Yuri was a propaganda agent with Novosti (journalism branch of KGB).

20:00 – Importance of not being scared of KGB Agents.

32:30 – disdain for the useful idiots who supported the Soviet Union.

42:00 – reluctance of journalists to believe the truth, deviate from party line.

46:00 – Staged wedding full of agents.

49:30 – More on useful idiots.

50:00 – On Maharishi’s movement.

53:00 – demoralization.

54:30 – Long lists of opinion makers . . . . how Viet Cong so quickly knew who to kill.

57:40 – Focus on conservatives and crooks. Leftists will become betrayed enemies.

1:01:00 – India was not a grass roots Muslim revolution, but a KGB orchestration.

1:07:30 – Changing Reality so that even when confronted with evidence they maintain their beliefs. Four stages:
1. Demoralization (one generation)
2. Destabilization (2-5 years)
3. Crisis (6 weeks or less)
4. Normalization (indefinite)

1:17:30 – Ideological subversion & active measures.

1:18:20 – US must stop supporting communists. Grain deals.

Young/old/civilian/military/woman/man. Amazed how #Russia keeps propagandists on message. Exact same words: “Why did kyiv attack us?”

I’ve watched a lot of raw footage — a lot of it from VICE. Whenever there’s a camera, the DNR/LNR/Russians control it very tightly, and everybody says almost the exact same thing. It’s pretty damn impressive actually.

It breaks down, of course, as soon as you get to the towns liberated by Ukraine. There you get a variety of opinions, most of which seem to be pro-Ukrainian.

Another video shows Russian hordes firing #Grad missiles out of central #Donetsk’s Kuibyshev district tonight.

As a conclusion of the Ilovays‘k battle I’ll say that: I have fought with real heroes and thank to everyone, who showed courage and valor. Under Ilovays‘k I haven’t seen a single coward. I watched how we fired at Russian troops and them running away. We can defend our nation from Russian aggression. But this requires professionalism – at all levels, at the command level, at the level of mobilization, at the level of equipment, intelligence, interaction, technical equipment and logistics. We must fight in the blessed memory of our heroes, for those who survived Ilovays‘k and for those who stayed there forever…

What Russian lawmakers want is to allow people to use their cryptocurrencies as they please, but they can’t use these “surrogate currencies as tender,” as stated by Aleksey Moiseev, the Deputy Finance Minister.

“We will discuss this law in the current session of parliament, and possibly even pass it then, or at the very latest by spring next year. We are currently dealing with comments from the law enforcement agencies, about the specifics of legal measures, and we will take their remarks into account. But the overall concept of the law is set in stone,” Moiseev added.

Officials say that they will open criminal proceedings against those who mint digital currency, but also against those who use them for transaction, while asking regulators to ban access to exchanges and online stores that accept Bitcoin.
