False Narrative, Fake Hero - Vox Popoli

 The mainstream media’s attempts to elevate the Jewish comedian nominally at the head of the globalist puppet state in Ukraine are both weird and obvious.

Ukraine’s president has become an unlikely sex symbol across the world after standing up to Vladimir Putin against the odds. Volodymyr Zelensky has won a legion of fans for his good looks as the public swooned over his video addresses to foreign powers. The ex-comedian turned politician turned war leader was also backed for his bravery in staying in Kyiv to help his forces bash back waves of Russian attacks.

So brave! So sexy! Much wow!

And yet, the nationalist press tells a very different story of the little rat-faced comedian.

Russian State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said Saturday that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had left Kiev for Lvov; he added that Zelensky had already departed the Ukrainian capital as of yesterday. Volodin also noted that all the videos that Zelensky publishes on social networks were recorded in advance. According to him, information about Zelensky’s departure to Lvov came from deputies of the Rada, Ukraine’s legislature.

Now, it’s obvious that someone isn’t telling the truth here. Which raises the question, if Zelensky is involved in any way in the Ukrainian resistance, let alone actively commanding it, what are the odds that the Russians don’t know exactly where he is? Russian ELINT is very good, and as far back as the Battle of Midway in 1942, it was crucial to maintain radio silence in order to avoid giving up one’s position.

Time will tell. But I know which way I would bet.

UPDATE: the pre-attack photos of two weeks ago being passed off as recent suffice to confirm that the Hero narrative is, indeed, fake.

Remember, the mainstream media’s narrative is always the one thing that we can be certain isn’t true. Note that the Global Times has already exploded one social media pro-Ukraine narrative.

The broken father saying goodbye to his daughter in a video clip that went viral on social media on Friday after being misinterpreted by some Western media, was actually not fighting the Russia troops, instead he chose to stay in East Ukraine where he is based to fight the Ukrainian army “invading” his homeland…

The video was quickly reposted by a group of Westerners who are supporting Ukraine because it was in line with the taste of Western “geopolitical correctness.” And eventually, numerous Western news media including the New York Post, the Daily Mail, the Newsweek and the Sun posted the video on their websites without even checking the basic facts. Some Indian media such as the Times of India also disseminated the twisted interpretation.

None of the news outlets have apologized for their mistake as of press time.

Now there is a useful term we’re certain to see – and probably use – in the future: geopolitical correctness.

Meanwhile, an eyewitness report from a neutral party resident in Ukraine.

The following is a status report of what appears to be happening at this time (2022. 02. 27 at 12:00 noon Kiev time) in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

I am trying to be as realistic as possible. I mean no disrespect or animus to either the Ukrainian side or the Russian side. I am not in any sense questioning the bravery of the soldiers of any nation, nor do I mean to give any offense. I live permanently in Ukraine, I love the Ukrainian people, and my children are Ukrainian citizens. In what I am about to say, I am trying to give a realistic, sober assessment of the current state of play.

The Russians have entered the center of Kharkiv, I know this from eyewitness accounts of people that I know there. There is small arms fighting, but generally light resistance. In the south, Kherson has fallen and the Russian army seems to have captured Zaporozhia. It seems clear that Dnipro will be reached within 3 to 5 days. At this time, Kiev is being surrounded by Russian tanks. There is sporadic small arms fire outside the city, but no big battles.

The Russian strategy seems to be to encircle the cities, while destroying military installations. The vast majority of civilian infrastructure in the areas under attack have been untouched and are functioning normally. It also seems very clear that the Russians have used their older equipment and less experienced soldiers in this initial assault. Very few of the high-tech modern weaponry that the Russians possess are being used in this first push. This would lead one to believe that the Russians want to probe and exhaust Ukrainian defenses before bringing out top-tier men and materiel.

The Russians are being incredibly disciplined insofar as their information management is concerned. The only information coming out of the Russians comes directly from the Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Their information so far has been 100% accurate, which I think is a deliberate strategy. There has been a great deal of Ukrainian propaganda that turned out to be complete fantasy, but even after these stories have been proven to be false, people cling to them.

At the current pace of operations, the Russians will completely capture Ukraine within 7 to 14 days. They are winning, and winning decisively. Maps comparing the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 to this current mechanized invasion show that the Russians are outpacing the Americans by a substantial margin. And as I said, they are using their second-tier men and weapons, and they did not use air power to soften Ukraine for several weeks, as the Americans did in 2003. Any claims that the Ukrainians are winning or holding back the Russians is complete fantasy.
