SHOCKING: ‘Hero of Ukraine’ Nadia Savchenko now accuses Kiev for Maidan Snipers

Convicted for killing Russians, but after her revelation, now branded enemy of state

Published

Nadia Savchenko, a former Ukrainian military pilot now a member of Ukrainian parliament has accused the highest echelons of the current Kiev regime of deploying snipers during those fateful days on the Maidan, to target both protestors and police.

I saw the current speaker of parliment bring snipers to the hotel, those people are in parliment now. The prosecuter general needed to become prosecuter so that his crimes against the Ukrainian people wouldn’t be investigated.

Said Savchenko in a video below – she is now accused by that same prosecutor general of attempting a terrorist attack. How very convenient for him, if his accuser is branded a terrorist.

Savchenko was previously sentenced to 23 years in jail in Russia for complicity in the murder of two Russian journalists, and later released as part of a prisoner exchange. She currently holds the highest national title Ukraine can bestow: Hero of Ukraine.

Once hailed as a Maidan Idol, a symbol of the so-called “Free Ukraine” against Russia, and given titles and platitudes in the western media as illustrious as being called “Ukraine’s Joan of Arc”, now she is branded an enemy of the state after her shocking revelations. She has been accused by the Ukrainian prosecutor general of planning a terrorist attack in parliament.

Since her release, she has become a thorn in the side of Kiev and President Poroshenko [even the Washington post admitted it], because her Ukrainian nationalism distracts from his true goal: robbing Ukraine blind while the real nationalists are busy slaughtering innocent people, and fleeing to a western country of his choice.

While it was an open secret that since her release, and becoming a Ukrainian member of parliament, she has been problematic for the westernizing elite, her “War Hero”, and “Female Prisoner of War” status, made her politically untouchable.

That was until now, when the Maidan Maiden crossed the forbidden line: questioning what really went down on Maidan. Now her very life could be in danger.

It’s a strange world when Nadia Savchenko is speaking more truth than a Ukrainian president, but if you really understand what is happening in the country, it isn’t surprising. This is not the first time a former Ukrainian military member has accused the Kiev regime of crimes which corroborate the Russian position.

The fact that these increasingly scandalous revelations constantly pour out of the collapsing failed state in Kiev, where all factions battle each other, while the Russian account and position remain largely united and static is very telling.

We already covered how former soldier Alexander Medinsky came out and said rich westerners were hunting people in Donbass.

Medinsky, however, was not nearly as high profile a Ukrainian as Savchenko, who gained international fame and praise even in the west. Savchenko is by far the most high profile Ukrainian nationalist and Maidan fighter to make these types of accusations, whereas name turned against nationalism and war, and became a pacifist, she is to this moment a member of parliament. This puts her amongst the highest-profile detractors from the Kiev regime. This makes her claims, that there were snipers provoking both sides on Maidan possibly even more credible than those of Medinsky.

She is now attacked NOT because she is Pro-Russian – far from it – she has Russian blood on her hands – but rather, she is, in fact, a true Ukrainian ultra-nationalist. The western powers which control the Kiev regime do not desire a strong Ukraine – certainly not a Pro-Russian one but not even a strong anti-Russian one – they don’t want a strong Ukrainian nation, but rather a Ukraine destroyed by nationalism.

That makes seem perplexing, as those following truth-based media are aware of the fact that Kiev is occupied by neo-Nazis and nationalists, and one may assume most of the government are nationalists. That is not quite true – the reality is there are two types of Anti-Russian personalities in Ukrainian politics:

  1. Real Ukrainian nationalists – like Savchenko and the lunatics of Azov battalion, Pravy Sektor, etc. These are the useful idiots who do the real fighting, but they serve other masters:
  2. Treasonous westernizing oligarchs – like President Poroshenko, Yatsenyuk, etc. They pretend to be nationalists for public support, but they don’t have a selfless bone in their body. They conly care for their piggy banks.

President Poroshenko and his ilk are not true nationalist Ukrainians, unlike Savchenko who would probably believe that dying and killing innocents for Ukraine will get her rewarded in paradise, (not unlike radical Islamic terrorists). Poroshenko and friends, on the other hand, would find death for Ukraine terrible. They can’t exactly rob Ukraine blind, and retire to private islands while the country burns, if they’re dead.

Savchenko and her kind may be deranged, but they are fanatically devoted to their vision of a nationalists Ukraine, but Poroshenko and his kind have NO intention of dying for Ukraine. They only support the war because it provides them with a good distraction for them to…you guessed it…rob the country blind.

It is these oligarchs who are most threatened by people like Savchenko. They love the nationalists – their useful idiots – when they’re fighting and gaining PR points for them, as Savchenko did, but they get nervous when they return and begin asking questions domestically. That is what Savchenko did, she grew a brain (if not a conscious) and essentially asked: “Hey, wait a minute…what were YOU people doing for Ukraine, while I was fighting, getting captured, and sitting in in a Russian jail.”

She also came to the revolutionary conclusion that killing Ukrainian citizens and turning Ukrainian cities to ruin doesn’t do much for the “glory of Ukraine”, and even less to fight Russia – who could capture Kiev in weeks if need be – but this war provides a perfect excuse for continuing the 1990’s-style national robbery and prostitution.

The Marketplace of Our Democracy – Glazunov

It remains to be seen what Savchenko actually believes, but it is possible even if she likely retains her Neo-Nazi beliefs, she may at least have enough sense to realize that those who rob the country are not their allies, and that the Western powers backing the Maidan regime care nothing for Ukraine, but are actually trying to divide and conquer the country she would claim to be willing to die for.

In conclusion, Savchenko’s shocking revelations are so much shocking because of the content themselves, as we already knew about the snipers, but the fact that it is coming from one of the highest profiles Ukrainian nationalists may signal the failed state in Kiev is on its last legs, and slowly but surely, the truth is revealed in the lands of old Kievan Rus’.

De-Dollarization Tops Agenda at Russia’s Eastern Economic Forum

The Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) was held in Vladivostok on Sept.11-13. Founded in 2015, the event has become a platform for planning and launching projects to strengthen business ties in the Asia-Pacific region.

This year, the EEF brought together delegations from over 60 countries to discuss the topic “The Far East: Expanding the Range of Possibilities”. A total of 100 business events involving over 6,000 participants were held during the three days.

1,357 media personnel worked to cover the forum. Last year, the number of participants was 5,000 with 1,000 media persons involved in reporting and broadcasting. The EEF-18 gathered 340 foreign and 383 Russian CEOs. Nearly 80 start-ups from across South-East Asia joined the meeting.

This year, a total of 175 agreements worth of 2.9 trillion rubles (some $4.3 billion) were signed. For comparison, the sum was 2.5 trillion rubles (roughly $3.7 billion) in 2017.

They included the development of the Baimsky ore deposits in Chukotka, the construction of a terminal for Novatek LNG at Bechevinskaya Bay in Kamchatka and the investment of Asian countries in Russia’s agricultural projects in the Far East.

Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF), Mail.Ru Group, Megafon and Chinese Alibaba inked an agreement on establishing AliExpress trade joint venture. Rosneft and Chinese CNPC signed an oil exploration agreement.

The Chinese delegation was the largest (1,096 people), followed by the Japanese (570 members). The list of guests included the president of Mongolia and prime ministers of Japan and South Korea.

It was also the first time Chinese President Xi Jinping attended the event to meet his Russian counterpart. The issue of de-dollarization topped the agenda. Russia and China reaffirmed their interest in expanding the use of national currencies in bilateral deals.

During the forum, Kirill Dmitriev, the head of RDIF, said the fund intends to use only national currencies in its transactions with China starting from 2019. It will cooperate with the China Development Bank.

This “yuanification” is making visible progress with Shanghai crude futures increasing their share of oil markets up to 14 percent or even more. China has signed agreements with Canada and Qatar on national currencies exchange.

De-dollarization is a trend that is picking up momentum across the world. A growing number of countries are interested in replacing the dollar. Russia is leading the race to protect itself from fluctuations, storms and US-waged trade wars and sanctions.

Moscow backs non-dollar trade with Ankara amid the ongoing lira crisis. Turkey is switching from the dollar to settlements in national currencies, including its trade with China and other countries. Ditching the US dollar is the issue topping the BRICS agenda. In April, Iran transferred all international payments to the euro.

The voices calling for de-dollarization are getting louder among America’s closest European allies. In August, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US.

According to him, Europe should not allow the United States to act “over our heads and at our expense.” The official wants to strengthen European autonomy by establishing independent payment channels, creating a European Monetary Fund and building up an independent SWIFT system.

Presenting his annual program, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker called on Sept. 12 for the European Union to promote the euro as a global currency to challenge the dollar.

According to him, “We must do more to allow our single currency to play its full role on the international scene.” Mr. Juncker believes “it is absurd that Europe pays for 80 percent of its energy import bill – worth 300 billion euros a year – in US dollars when only roughly 2 percent of our energy imports come from the United States.” He wants the raft of proposals made in his state of the union address to start being implemented before the European Parliament elections in May.

70% of all world trade transactions account for the dollar, while 20% are  settled in the euro, and the rest falls on the yuan and other Asian currencies. The dollar value is high to make the prices of consumer goods in the US artificially low. The demand for dollars allows refinancing the huge debt at low interest rates. The US policy of trade wars and sanctions has triggered the global process of de-dollarization.

Using punitive measures as a foreign policy tool is like shooting oneself in the foot. It prompts a backlash to undermine the dollar’s status as the world reserve currency – the basis of the US economic might. The aggressive policy undermines the US world standing to make it weaker, not stronger.

Putin and Erdogan Plan Syria-Idlib DMZ

What the Putin-Erdogan DMZ decision means is that the 50,000 Turkish troops occupying Idlib will take control over that land, and have responsibility over the largest concentration of jihadists anywhere on the planet.

As I recommended in a post on September 10th, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan jointly announced on September 17th, “We’ve agreed to create a demilitarized zone between the government troops and militants before October 15. The zone will be 15-20km wide,” which compares to the Korean DMZ’s 4-km width. I had had in mind the Korean experience, but obviously Putin and Erdogan are much better-informed about the situation than I am, and they have chosen a DMZ that’s four to five times wider. In any case, the consequences of such a decision will be momentous, unless U.S. President Donald Trump is so determined for there to be World War III as to stop at nothing in order to force it to happen no matter what Russia does or doesn’t do.

What the Putin-Erdogan DMZ decision means is that the 50,000 Turkish troops who now are occupying Idlib province of Syria will take control over that land, and will thus have the responsibility over the largest concentration of jihadists anywhere on the planet: Idlib. It contains the surviving Syrian Al Qaeda and ISIS fighters, including all of the ones throughout Syria who surrendered to the Syrian Army rather than be shot dead on the spot by Government forces.

For its part, the U.S. Government, backed by its allies and supported in this by high officials of the United Nations, had repeatedly threatened that if there occurs any chemical-weapons attack, or even any claimed chemical-weapons attack, inside Idlib, the U.S. and its allies will instantaneously blame the Syrian Government and bomb Syria, and will shoot down the planes of Syria and of Russia that oppose this bombing-campaign to conquer or ‘liberate’ Syria from its Government. The U.S. has announced its determination to protect what one high U.S. official — who is endorsing what Trump is doing there — “the largest Al Qaeda safe haven since 9/11.” He admits it, but he wants to protect them from being bombed by Syria and by Russia.

During recent weeks, the U.S. military has increasingly said that even if the jihadists they’ve been assisting to assemble the materials for a chemical-weapons attack fail to carry it out or to stage one, any attempt by Syrian and Russian forces to destroy the jihadists (which the U.S. side calls ‘rebels’) in Idlib will be met with overwhelming U.S.-and-allied firepower. That would spark WW III, because whichever side — Russia or U.S. — loses in the Syrian battlefield will nuclear-blitz-attack the other side so as to have the lesser damage from the nuclear war and thus (in military terms) ‘win’ WW III, because the blitz-attack will destroy many of the opposite side’s retaliatory weapons. In a nuclear war, the first side to attack will have a considerable advantage — reducing the number of weapons the other side can launch.

If, on the other hand, the DMZ-plan works, then Turkey’s forces will be responsible for vetting any of Idlib’s residents who try to leave, in order to prohibit jihadists and their supporters from leaving. Once that task (filtering out the non-dangerous inhabitants and retaining in Idlib only the jihadists and their supporters) is done, the entire world might be consulted on whether to exterminate the remaining residents or to set them free to return to the countries from which they came or to other countries. Presumably, no country would want those ‘refugees’. That would answer the question.

America’s Arab allies, the oil monarchies such as the Sauds who own Saudi Arabia and the Thanis who own Qatar, and which have funded Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, would then be put on a spot, because if they say “Exterminate them!” then their clergy who have provided the moral imprimatur upon those families’ ownership of those nations, will either be in rebellion or else will themselves become overthrown either by their own followers or else by their monarch — overthrown from below or from above.

Alternatively, after Turkey’s forces in Idlib will have allowed release from Idlib of all who will be allowed out, Syria’s and Russia’s bombers will simply go in and slaughter the then-surrounded jihadists and take upon themselves the responsibility for that, regardless of what the leaders of the U.S. and its allied governments might say.

On the night of September 17th in Syria, there were missile-attacks “from the sea” against several Syrian cities; and those attacks could have come from either Israel’s or America’s ships, or from other U.S.-allied ships. Russian Television bannered, “Russian plane disappears from radars during Israeli attack on Syria’s Latakia – MoD” and reported:

A Russian military Il-20 aircraft with 14 service members on board went off the radars during an attack by four Israeli jets on Syria’s Latakia province, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
Air traffic controllers at the Khmeimim Air Base “lost contact” with the aircraft on Wednesday evening, during the attack of Israeli F-16 fighters on Latakia, said the MOD.Russian radars also registered the launch of missiles from a French frigate in the Mediterranean on the evening of September 17. …
The attack on Latakia came just hours after Russia and Turkey negotiated a partial demilitarization of the Idlib province

If the missiles were authorized by President Trump, then WW III has already begun in its pre-nuclear stage. However, if the attacks were launched by Israel’s Netanyahu, and/or by France’s Macron, without U.S. authorization, then the U.S. President might respond to them by siding against that aggressor(s) (and also against what he used to call “Radical Islamic Terrorists”), so as to prevent a nuclear war.

Late on September 17th, Al Masdar News bannered “NATO warships move towards Syrian coast” and reported “The NATO flotilla cruising off the Syrian coast reportedly consists of a Dutch frigate, the De Ruyter, a Canadian frigate, the Ville de Quebec, and a Greek cruiser, the Elli.” Al Qaeda and ISIS have influential protectors.

Ultimately, the decision will be U.S. President Trump’s as to whether he is willing to subject the planet to WW III and to its following nuclear winter and consequent die-off of agriculture and of everyone, in order to ‘win’ a nuclear war, such as America’s aristocracy has especially championed since the year 2006. The nuclear-victory concept is called “Nuclear Primacy” — the use of nuclear weapons so as to win a nuclear war against Russia, instead of to prevent a nuclear war. That concept’s predecessor, the “Mutually Assured Destruction” or “M.A.D.” meta-strategy, predominated even in the U.S. until 2006. Trump will have to decide whether the purpose of America’s nuclear-weapons stockpiles is to prevent WW III, or is to win WW III.

In Russia, the purpose has always been to have nuclear weapons in order to prevent WW III. But America’s President will be the person who will make the ultimate decision on this. And Idlib might be the spark. Netanyahu or Macron might be wanting to drag the U.S. into war even against Russia, but the final decision will be Trump’s.

The ultimate question is: How far will the U.S. go in order to continue the U.S. dollar as being the overwhelmingly dominant global currency?

Russian MoD: Il-20 downed by Syrian missile after attacking Israel’s F-16s used it as cover

Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces.

Russia has stated that it “reserves right to response” after claiming that Israel’s actions led to downing of Il-20 by Syrian S-200 missiles.

The Russian military accused their Israeli counterparts for causing the downing of a Russian Il-20 plane by the Syrian air defense forces, which were responding to an Israeli air raid on Latakia.

Via RT


The Russian military say the Israeli raid on Syria triggered a chain of events, which led to the shooting down of a Russian Il-20 plane by a Syrian S-200 surface-to-air missile. Moscow reserves the right to respond accordingly.

On Monday evening four Israeli F-16 fighter jets attacked targets in Syria’s Latakia after approaching from the Mediterranean, a statement by the Russian defense ministry said on Tuesday. The Israeli warplanes came at a small altitude and “created a dangerous situation for other aircraft and vessels in the region”, it said.

The military said the French Navy’s frigate “Auvergne” as well as a Russian Il-20 plane were in the area of the Israeli operation.

“The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile,” the statement said.

The Russian ministry stressed that the Israelis must have known that the Russian plane was present in the area, which didn’t stop them from “the provocation”. Israel also failed to warn Russia about the planned operation in advance. The warning came a minute before the attack started, which “did not leave time to move the Russian plane to a safe area,” the statement said.
