Ukrainian Phoenix Program?

The cleans­ing pro­gram being imple­ment­ed by the Zelen­sky gov­ern­ment and the SBU intel­li­gence ser­vice of Ukraine appears to be a Euro­pean man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Phoenix Pro­gram: ” . . . . Dou­glas Valen­tine, author of the sem­i­nal book The Phoenix Pro­gram (1990), in a recent inter­view told me that Phoenix went pub­lic in 1968 under the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion that it was ‘pro­tect­ing the peo­ple from terrorism’—like with the SBU pro­grams today. The deten­tions were large­ly designed to encour­age defec­tions while strik­ing fear in the pub­lic. . . .” ” . . . . Valen­tine . . . sees eerie par­al­lels between the orig­i­nal Phoenix pro­gram and Zelensky’s oper­a­tions today. In both cas­es, Valen­tine told CAM in an exclu­sive inter­view, ‘neu­tral­ism wasn’t tol­er­at­ed.’ . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Bringin’ It All Back Home? Again?

West­ern intel­li­gence agencies–American in particular–appear to be reca­pit­u­lat­ing “Oper­a­tion Cyclone” in Ukraine. That oper­a­tion involved the train­ing and oper­a­tional inser­tion of Islamists into Afghanistan in that coun­try’s war against the Sovi­et Union. “Cyclone 2” entails the use of Nazi/White Suprema­cist com­bat­ants in a clan­des­tine effort against Rus­sia in Ukraine. An impor­tant arti­cle from “The Gray Zone” reit­er­ates the warn­ing sound­ed here for years agout the “blow­back” this will be hav­ing in the U.S. Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

French Medical Technician Breaks the Media Narrative on War Crimes in Ukraine

For­mer com­man­do in the French mil­i­tary, Adrien Boc­quet details his expe­ri­ence in Ukraine as a med­ical tech­ni­cian. In that capac­i­ty, he wit­nessed war crimes per­pe­trat­ed by the Ukraini­ans. Boc­quet: Saw Ukrain­ian mil­i­tary sum­mar­i­ly exe­cut­ing POWs; wit­nessed civil­ian facil­i­ties being used for weapons stor­age, result­ing in casu­al­ties when Russ­ian mis­siles struck those stor­age areas; Saw Azov Nazis all over Ukraine, not just in Mar­i­upol; Said that the Azov Nazis are active­ly sup­ple­ment­ed and armed by the West; Expressed the view that most of the weapon­ry being con­tributed by the West is going to the Azov units.

Update on the Patreon Site

Updat­ing the sta­tus of Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site: The tran­scrip­tion soft­ware has proved too impre­cise to per­mit easy edit­ing. Instead of the tran­scrip­tions we will be offer­ing: bi-week­ly Zoom Q & A ses­sions and access to writ­ten arti­cles that Mr. Emory will cre­ate. Record­ed seg­ments con­tin­ue to be uploaded and should be com­plete present­ly.

Latest Patreon Talk: Ukrainian Police Bear “Azov Imprint”; Are Source for Russian “Atrocity” Allegations

Pro­lif­er­at­ing Russ­ian “atroc­i­ty” alle­ga­tions are fil­tered through the Azov-influ­enced Ukrain­ian police estab­lish­ment. Zelen­sky’s secu­ri­ty forces engage in sys­tem­at­ic hor­rors.

On the Patreon Site: History of Azov Evolution, From WWII to Present

In the most recent pre­sen­ta­tion on Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site, we chron­i­cle the evo­lu­tion of the Azov man­i­fes­ta­tion from the clos­ing stages of World War II and merg­ing of the Gehlen Org—a front for the Nazi SS—into the CIA. ” . . . . His [Gehlen’s] FHO was con­nect­ed in this role with a num­ber of secret fas­cist orga­ni­za­tions in the coun­tries to Ger­many’s east. These includ­ed Stepan Ban­der­a’s ‘B Fac­tion’ of the Orga­ni­za­tion of Ukrain­ian Nation­al­ists (OUN/B) . . . . The mil­i­tary intel­li­gence his­to­ri­an Colonel William Cor­son put it most suc­cinct­ly, ‘Gehlen’s orga­ni­za­tion was designed to pro­tect the Odessa Nazis. It amounts to an excep­tion­al­ly well-orches­trat­ed diver­sion.’. . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

On the Patreon Site: Suspicious History of Satellite Firm; Zelensky, Azov Soldier Address Greek Parliament

In the lat­est talk on Mr. Emory’s Patre­on site, he dis­cuss­es the video appear­ance Zelen­sky gave before the Greek Par­lia­ment, gen­er­at­ing out­rage. Increas­ing­ly Zelen­sky’s pub­lic man­i­fes­ta­tions reflect the fact that his pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, the TV net­work on which he gained his pub­lic per­sona and the Azov Bat­tal­ion are financed by oli­garch Ihor Kolo­moisky. That appear­ance and atten­dant out­rage was over­shad­owed by the lat­est alle­ga­tions of Russ­ian atroc­i­ties. A pri­vate recon­nais­sance satel­lite firm that gave dubi­ous infor­ma­tion about an alleged Russ­ian inva­sion of Ukraine in August of 2014 is now the source of pho­to­graph­ic evi­dence “prov­ing” Russ­ian “atroc­i­ties” in the Azov-defend­ed Bucha.

On Mr. Emory’s Patreon Site: Analysis of Media War Crimes Reports

The lat­est talk on Mr. Emory’s new­ly launched Patre­on site pars­es the con­flict­ing media reports about the after­math of the com­bat in areas around Kiev that have been aban­doned by Russ­ian troops. The pres­ence of Nazi/Azov units in Bucha and dis­con­ti­nu­ities in reportage are ana­lyzed at length and in detail.

Pentagon Analysts: MSM Ukraine War Coverage False: Russian Air War Limited in Scope

Pre­vi­ous­ly, we have not­ed the Azov Reg­i­men­t’s pro­cliv­i­ty for provo­ca­tions, includ­ing (in all prob­a­bil­i­ty) the the­ater in Mar­i­upol, a city defend­ed by the Azov Reg­i­ment. Pen­ta­gon analysts–speaking on con­di­tion of anonymity–have debunked the MSM echo cham­ber fab­ri­cat­ing sto­ries of indis­crim­i­nate tar­get­ing of civil­ians by Rus­sia. So far, the Russ­ian assault appears to have been inten­tion­al­ly restrained for the vast major­i­ty of Ukraine. ” . . . . ‘We need to under­stand Russia’s actu­al con­duct,’ says a retired Air Force offi­cer, a lawyer by train­ing who has been involved in approv­ing tar­gets for U.S. fights in Iraq and Afghanistan. The offi­cer cur­rent­ly works as an ana­lyst with a large mil­i­tary con­trac­tor advis­ing the Pen­ta­gon and was grant­ed anonymi­ty in order to speak can­did­ly. In the analyst’s view . . . the Russ­ian mil­i­tary has actu­al­ly been show­ing restraint in its long-range attacks. . . . As of the past week­end, in 24 days of con­flict, Rus­sia has flown some 1,400 strike sor­ties and deliv­ered almost 1,000 mis­siles (by con­trast, the Unit­ed States flew more sor­ties and deliv­ered more weapons in the first day of the 2003 Iraq war). . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.
