US-NATO Project: Chaos Along Russia's Border



This video is a moving and heartbreaking inside view of the US-NATO backed assault on the Russian speaking people of eastern Ukraine.

You get a glimpse of the self-defense forces - former miners, farmers, electricians, tele-communications engineers, musicians, former soldiers, husbands, wives and some volunteers from Russia who have come to eastern Ukraine to help defend the people from the endless attacks on their communities.

The people often refer to the 'Grads' that Kiev's forces use to shell them.  Each time I heard Grads I flash back to my Little League baseball team at Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota in the early 1960's.  The name of my team was the 'Grads'.  At the time I had no clue what a Grad actually was.

There is a lull in the fighting now after Kiev's forces got routed out of Debalcevo just days ago.  For the moment Kiev's forces have retreated enough to resupply themselves and wait for the new 'trainers' from the US, Poland, Canada, and Britain coming to prop up their war machine.  It is expected they will renew their offensive in the spring.

Since Kiev's huge loss in Debalcevo the self-defense forces have been left with legions of military vehicles, weapons, and other such equipment.  The real question is what are they going to do with all the refugees and how will they survive?  Russia has been sending in many convoys of humanitarian aid but even that is just a drop in the bucket.

For us in the west we must make a more determined effort to force our corporate dominated governments to end this insane provoking of war with Russia.  We have to start with educating our own fellow citizens who have largely fallen victim to the brainwashing by corporate run media.

Heads Up: The blue and yellow flag patch is Kiev forces. The self-defense forces are red and blue.
