Patrick Lancaster: Artillery Strike Hits Center Donetsk

This guy is trying his hardest to get the word out.

As Sohrab Ahmari said at TAC, the “journalists” who know nothing anout Ukraine would prefer to frame the war as a battle between light and dark, good and evil, Autobots and Decepticons. There is zero coverage of the Ukrainians on the other side of the civil war who oppose the Zelensky regime.

The point that I am making here is to illustrate how many different stories you can tell based on where you are pointing the camera or whether it is even on at all. Some victims are worthy like George Floyd or Ukrainian civilians in Kyiv/Kiev and get hyped up to emotionally manipulate the public. Some victims are unworthy of coverage like Cannon Hinnant or Ukrainians in Donbas – where the war has gone for eight years with zero interest from the media – and that is true both at home and abroad.


  1. >Artillery Strike Hits Center Donetsk


    Donetsk is an industrial city in eastern Ukraine located on the Kalmius River in the disputed area of Donetsk Oblast. While internationally recognized as in Ukraine, the city is under the de facto administration of the Donetsk People’s Republic, which claims it as its capital city.

    At this point, meaning more than a month after the ‘special military operation’ began, I’m a little surprised that Donetsk is still in range of Ukrainian artillery — ?

    Note the excited tone of Lancaster because of some shelling — to compare with how war was waged in the past:

  2. “surprised that Donetsk is still in range of Ukrainian artillery”:

    All of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics were completely in range of Khazarkrainian artillery all these years, and they were so narrow that it was possible to fire all the way over them into Russia.

    If Khazarkraine launches any more cluster munitions or phosphorus into Russian civilian centers now, it is a clear indication that it has no intention of signing a peace agreement. The U.S. wants the war to go on as long as possible.

  3. Putin should make a Michael Corleone call on the hot line,

    C: Mr. President, do know what a SS-18 is? If not, I suggest you consult your advisors. If you don’t stop supplying my enemies within 24 hours you will find out in any case. I look forward to the resumption of cordial relations between our nations.

  4. A referendum will be conducted after the end of hostilities for residents of Donbas to decide whether they want to join the Russian Federation. This will increase the population of Russia by almost 3% and nearly all of them are ethnic Russians who identify as Russians. The population also grew when Crimea re-joined Russia and a million “Ukrainians” (ethnic Russians) emigrated to Russia earlier. This is a healthy, natural, ethno-centric growth, unlike the U.S.’s artificial, money-centered (financial) “vacuuming in” of every race and creed from around the entire planet. The U.S. knows that “numbers equal power” and is becoming the third most populous state after China and India. The U.S. population is still growing faster and about twice the size of Russia’s.
