Entire Ukrainian battalion surrenders in Mariupol
The below video shows the surrender in Mariupol of what’s claimed to be 264 men, reportedly what remains of the 501st Separate Marine Infantry Battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Full-unit surrenders such as this have enormous propaganda value—this is certainly being plastered all over Russian TV. This alone is probably good for another two or three points on Putin’s approval rating. It means that much—it looks like World War 2, and smells like Victory—and it’s only getting started.
I haven’t seen anything like this since the 1991 Iraq War. We should be seeing A LOT more of this in the Donbass, this month.
These men will be treated better than the Donetsk or Lugansk prisoner below, who was blindfolded and had his head bashed in by (I assume) some kind of blunt object. Then his captors (or someone they know) posted the photo online, and Ukrainian ghouls have been passing it around like, “awww this is awesome.”
To be fair to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, all or almost all killing and serious physical abuse of Russian or Donetsk/Lugansk prisoners or suspected Russian collaborators or sympathizers has been at the hands of the Interior Ministry’s National Guard component (e.g., the Azov among other units), the Territorial Defense militia, the Ukraine Security Service, or the National Police. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are, in their great majority, relatively speaking, honorable warriors, same as most Russians.
Of course, both sides have killed many civilians—this is simply unavoidable with such intense fighting in urban areas.
How we know the “Bucha Butchery” narrative is a FRAUD
On Thursday, March 31st, Bucha mayor Anatolii Fedoruk posted a video message in which he said that all Russian forces had already left Bucha. He did not mention any atrocities.
In the nearly eight-minute video below (no relation to the mayor’s address), a Special Forces unit of the National Police enters and patrols Bucha shortly after the Russians are confirmed to have left. This is literally the first Ukrainian forces unit documented in Bucha after the Russian evacuation.
(This video is certainly of Bucha. The town’s name in case-conjugated form is on the large sign at around 2:16 of the video, and the Novus supermarket at around 5:12 is clearly the Bucha branch.)
The patrol becomes more relaxed the further it goes, and a number of civilians come out to speak with the policemen. One couple points out to them where Russian soldiers had been stationed. Others say things like “good, good” or “thank God” etc.
One guy talks about the Russians rudely searching his basement and giving him grief for his patriotic decorations or whatever; he says he had to explain it to them like hey I live in Ukraine, this is normal.
There is no talk of massacres, and there are no bodies visible anywhere in the town, with the exception of one blurred-out deceased person (or so I assume, it’s hard to tell) lying inside a badly damaged car. None of the civilians speak of any outrages, or where bodies may be found.
Of course, it’s “only” eight minutes long, but, they brought a cameraman (who may have taken hours of footage, then edited it down), and this is the best they could do.
(Near the start of the video, there is one body on a road leading into the town, which appears to be in some remnants of clothes, presumably blasted by some artillery or other heavy munition, in the wrong place at the wrong time.)
But, that was before the PR people decided this town was going to be The Next Big Thing. So, a few days later, on April 3rd and 4th, we got this:
What’s the ratio here of photographers to corpses? Ten to one?
It’s disgusting, a f***ing circus.
Brandon’s going to prosecute Putin for war crimes for this?
This must be the “mass grave with 300 bodies” that CNN told my wife about. No other “candidate” for that position has been shown, so this must be it. It looks like they inflated the body count 100 times.
How do we know who killed these people, how they died? Perhaps it’s an organized crime score-settling in the chaos of the war, while the local police were in hiding (perhaps as Russia was leaving) and there was no law? Maybe it’s some unclaimed bums who were dumped here for effect? I mean, it’s just three bodies. It’s not hard to find three bodies in this war. Not for a production like this, with stakes so high.
Is there a story as to how they were killed? Of course not, or not yet anyway (the PR team might be thinking of one now.)
After all the other fakes that have come out of the Ukraine (among them, that there are 300 bodies here), we’re just supposed to accept this fact vacuum and say, yeah, this is the handiwork of Putin the Butcher of Bucha, this is a war crime.
Let’s all turn off our brains, and double-mask and get tripled-boosted for the Ukraine!
(After all, the Ukraine is BLM and Russia is White Privilege.)
