A young German journalist is denounced, deplatformed, demonetized, robbed, and sentenced to prison in absentia, all for the crime of violating the Satanic Narrative on Ukraine.
The controversy around Lipp began in March when one of her videos explaining the history and the context of the war went viral.
In Lipp’s viral video, she said, “you need to understand that Russia has been asking for eight years that the Minsk agreement be upheld. Ukraine did not adhere to it, nor did they approach the Donbas region in an attempt to come to agreement. Instead, they have been bombing the outskirts of the Donbas region for eight years. They are shooting at civilians, who now also have to live in completely shot-up houses. Very many people have died here,” Lipp continued.
In the video, Lipp alleged that the Donbas citizens who overwhelmingly voted to secede from Ukraine in 2014 had been, “thankful that Russia finally did something”.
Lip added, “Finally, the people here have been liberated from the terror that they’ve been experiencing for the last eight years,” under continuous shelling by the Ukrainian military.
Soon after the video went viral, Lipp’s YouTube channel was closed, her PayPal account was blocked, and the Ukrainian government labeled her a “terrorist”.
Last month, the journalist received a letter from Germany’s prosecutor’s office which states that she now faces three years in prison for supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
This comes after German authorities closed down her bank account and her father’s bank account without warning.
In a recent interview, Lipp explained, “The letter says that, for example, I say in my Telegram channel that the population of Donbas supports the fact that Russia has launched a special operation.”
“I also said that for several years Ukrainians have been killing civilians in the Donbas, and that this is genocide and it turns out to be a crime for Germany, so they took 1,600 euro from my bank account and didn’t even tell me about it.” Lipp said.
According to Lipp, the German government has declared her guilty and she will not be able to defend herself in court.
It’s now time for Americans, Germans, and all the other denizens of the post-West to ask themselves the obvious question: “Are we the baddies?”
When people don’t go to jail for burning down entire city blocks, but are sentenced in absentia for merely reporting what they observe on the scene, something is deeply and disturbingly wrong. And how fragile, how obviously false, is a Narrative that dares not permit the simple reporting of observable facts?
