    I tried finding some articles about the castrated POW’s but all I found was articles that report that this was a fake story. Does anyone have proof one way or the other, whether this actually happened? That seems like the worst action that I’ve heard of the terrorists in DPR having done, so it seems even more important than normal, for that story to be confirmed or denied definitively.

      Good question. I don’t know. It’d be a great job for some journalist.

      I did hear about the castrations (without a specified # of casualties) from a Ukrainian military officer. He told me that Ukrainian President Poroshenko deliberately suppressed the story because Ukrainians were holding a large number of Russian prisoners, and he didn’t want revenge mutilations against them.

    My concern is simply that if its true, that’s an ENORMOUSLY big deal and people everywhere should know about it, but if its not then that’ll really hurt the credibility of anyone mentioning it, even if everything else they say is accurate. I really don’t want us fighting disinformation with disinformation, and needlessly hurting our credibility. If anyone can confirm or deny definitively, that would be a big deal.

        FYI: Dr. Karber answered me, and apologized for not doing so sooner. He thanked me for alerting him and said he’d double check his sources, though reaffirmed what I also know – that it was common knowledge.

        He also told me another rumor that I’d heard — Ukrainian forces managed to kill both the Russian commander who ordered the castrations and the doctor who performed them.

          I don’t know what to make of that, his credentials seem to check out, so I’m inclined to believe him.

          I can’t find anything that would serve as solid evidence, so I’ll avoid bringing it up for the time being.

          That sort of barbarism can’t be forgiven, I can’t even think of anything else to say that isn’t a vicious rant.

    I wonder how hard he would be to get a hold of. I won’t lie when I heard that in the video, it was the first I heard of it, and I was overcome by such a strong involuntary unyielding vengeful rage, that I had to pause the video for a bit. I don’t know if I have the cool head needed to investigate something like this.
