Ukraine, the ‘borderlands’ between Russia and ‘civilized’ Europe has been on fire for centuries

by Han Barkmeyer

This 2016 ‘UKRAINE ON FIRE’ is an interesting documentary by Oliver Stone and Igor Lopatonok:
https://fos-sa.org/2022/03/04/oliver-stone-ukraine-on-fire/

The documentary begins with ‘Operation Barbarossa’, Germany’s invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June, 1941.
What Oliver Stone is not aware of or deliberately omits to inform the viewer is that Stalin was to invade Germany in July 1941.

Oliver Stone

In his speech of May 5, 1941, to graduate officers of the academies, Stalin said that war with Germany was inevitable, and characterized it as a war not only of a defensive nature but rather of an offensive nature. Stalin intended to attack in July 1941, although Russian historians disagree about the precise date.

Hitler’s attack on the Soviet Union was a pre-emptive strike. Had he not done so the Soviets would have overrun not only Germany, but all of Europe.

Don’t be fooled by Comrade Putin, he is a WEF Stooge and is just as eager as Comrade Stalin was to “export” Communism worldwide. The Communists today use their World Economic Forum’s ‘Great Reset’ to impose their Dictatorship on our world.

Here WEF’s Klaus Schwab bragging about “Angela Merkel, Tony Blair, President Putin, Kurz (Austrian Chancellor), Jacinda Ardern the New Zealand Prime Minister… the 3 youngest leaders of governments are here”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vq6YaQNG05c

Here the summary of ‘Ukraine On Fire’:

Ukraine, the ‘borderlands’ between Russia and ‘civilized’ Europe is on fire. For centuries, it has been at the centre of a tug-of-war between powers seeking to control its rich lands and Russia’s access to the Mediterranean.
The Maidan Massacre in early 2014 triggered a bloody uprising that ousted president Viktor Yanukovych, spurred Crimeans to secede and join Russia, and sparked a civil war in Eastern Ukraine.

Russia was portrayed by Western media as the perpetrator, and has been sanctioned and widely condemned as such. But was Russia responsible for what happened?
Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which led to the 2004 Orange Revolution, the 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically-elected Yanukovych.

Covered by Western media as a ‘popular revolution’, it was in fact a coup d’état scripted and staged by ultra-nationalist groups and the US State Department.

Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how US-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 1980s, replacing the CIA in promoting America’s geopolitical agenda abroad.

Executive producer Oliver Stone gained unprecedented access to the inside story through his on-camera interviews with former President Viktor Yanukovych and Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko, who explain how the US Ambassador and factions in Washington actively plotted for regime change.

And, in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Stone solicits Putin’s take on the significance of Crimea, NATO and the US’s history of interference in elections and regime change in the region. Now, at last, the full exposé is available in the West.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    Hi DavidB,

    “Han Barkmeyer – you are full of bullshit.” Your argumentum ad hominem has been noted.

    David, B must be the initial of your surname and I guess your full name is David Bullshit. No wonder you are too embarrassed to display your full name. What a fitting name for a coward telling others he doesn’t agree with: “you are full of bullshit”, but then doesn’t even dare to display his full name when posting his comment on Cairns News.

    “PS – if you fail to display this posting I will demand to know why!!!!!”

    Typical bullying language from a coward hiding behind anonymity.

    Calm down, David Bullshit, no need for theatrics. Cairns News always display comments and has also displayed your comment and I am more than willing to reply to it and expose it for what it is: Utter BS.

    “This theory of the USSR attacking Germany in 1941 and thereby prompting a German spoiler attack is and old favorite with the Nazi sympathizers.”

    Of course, Jews, Court Historians, Shabbos Goy and Ignoramuses, take your pick to what group you belong to, are always using this argument to hide the truth and ridicule those exposing it.

    “This theory of the USSR attacking Germany in 1941…”, is NOT a theory and clearly shows your (willful?) ignorance or your rudimentary brain just not capable of comprehending complex subjects like Modern History.

    Wolfgang Strauss, a respected German Slavicist and political analyst, in his 1998 book “Operation Barbarossa and the Russian Historians’ Dispute” examines the research of revisionist scholars in RUSSIA and GERMANY on Stalin’s role in igniting the German-Russian conflict and his efforts to expand the Soviet empire across Europe.
    Now, more than 50 years after the end of the “clash of the titans,” free RUSSIAN and GERMAN historians are collaborating to ascertain the historical decisions and actions that led to that bloodiest of all conflicts.

    A radical revision of World War II history, Strauss contends, became possible only after the collapse of the multinational Soviet Union (1991), when some 14 million previously classified documents dealing with all aspects of Soviet rule were finally open to free examination.

    From: Examining Stalin’s 1941 Plan to Attack Germany
    https://codoh.com/library/document/examining-stalins-1941-plan-to-attack-germany/en/

    One of the earliest Russian revisionists of World War II history was Pyotr Grigorenko, a Soviet Army Major General and highly decorated war veteran who taught at the Frunze Military Academy. Already in the early 1960s, during the Khrushchev era, he was a “dissident,” publicly supporting civil rights for oppressed ethnic minorities. (Authorities committed him to a mental asylum.) In 1967, Strauss relates, he was the first leading Soviet figure to advance the revisionist arguments, which became well known during the 1980s and 1990s, on Stalin’s preparations for aggressive war against Germany.

    In an article submitted to a major Soviet journal (but rejected, and later published abroad), Grigorenko pointed out that SOVIET MILITARY FORCES VASTLY OUTNUMBERED GERMAN FORCES IN 1941. Just prior to the German attack on June 22, 1941, more than half of the SOVIET FORCES WERE in the area near and west of Bialystok, that is, in an area DEEP IN POLISH TERRITORY.

    “This deployment could only be justified” wrote Grigorenko, “if these troops were deploying for a surprise offensive. In the event of an enemy attack these troops would soon be encircled.”
    Grigorenko originally submitted his article to the Soviet journal Voprosy istorii KPSS, which (of course) rejected it. It was published in 1969 by Possev, a Russian emigré publishing house in Frankfurt am Main.

    Strauss lists (pages 102-105) the major findings and conclusions of Russian revisionists, derived mostly from the two major works cited above:

    Stalin wanted a general European war of exhaustion in which the USSR would intervene at the politically and militarily most expedient moment. Stalin’s main intention is seen in his speech to the Politburo of August 19, 1939.

    To ignite this, Stalin used the [August 1939] Soviet-German Non-Aggression Pact, which: a) provoked Hitler’s attack against Poland, and b) evoked the declarations of war [against Germany] by Britain and France.

    In the event Germany was defeated quickly [by Britain and France], Stalin planned to “Sovietize” Germany and establish a “Communist government” there, but with the danger that the victorious capitalist powers would never permit a Communist Germany.

    In the event France was defeated quickly [by Germany], Stalin planned the “Sovietization” of France. “A Communist revolution would seem inevitable, and we could take advantage of this for our own purposes by rushing to aid France and making her our ally. As a result of this, all the nations under the ‘protection’ of a victorious Germany would become our allies.”

    From the outset Stalin reckoned on a war with Germany, and the [Soviet] conquest of Germany. To this end, Stalin concentrated on the western border of the USSR operational offensive forces, which were five- to six-times stronger than the Wehrmacht with respect to tanks, aircraft and artillery.

    With respect to a war of aggression, on May 15, 1941, the Red Army’s Main Political Directorate instructed troop commanders that every war the USSR engaged in, whether defensive or offensive, would have the character of a “just war.”

    DavidBullshit:
    “Further – how does Mr Barkmeyer explain the position of all Russian forces when Germany attacked in June 1941??? They were not concentrated on the borders which would have been the case if they were preparing for an attack in just one months time. The Russian forces were spread over the hinterland areas of the Borders – which was one of the reasons the Germans had a tough time penetrating in depth in the first 3-4 months of the war.”

    David Bullshit, you seem to be the military expert. Please, show me your sources of where the Russian forces were located. I am very curious.

    Pyotr Grigorenko, a Soviet Army Major General and highly decorated war veteran who taught at the Frunze Military Academy:

    SOVIET MILITARY FORCES VASTLY OUTNUMBERED GERMAN FORCES IN 1941. Just prior to the German attack on June 22, 1941, more than half of the SOVIET FORCES WERE in the area near and west of Bialystok, that is, in an area DEEP IN POLISH TERRITORY.

    What do you have to say to that? I wouldn’t be surprised if you would say: “Soviet Army Major General Pyotr Grigorenko is full of Bullshit!!!!!!!!”

    And, please, your reply to the 4 paragraphs below.

    Troop contingents were to be brought up to full strength in all the western military districts; airfields and supply bases to support a forward-strategy were to be built directly behind the border; an attack force of 60 divisions was to be set up in the Ukraine and mountain divisions and a parachute corps were to be established for attack operations.

    The 16th, 19th, 21st, 22nd and 25th Soviet Armies were transferred from the interior to the western border, and deployed at take-off points for the planned offensive.

    In his speech of May 5, 1941, to graduate officers of the academies, Stalin said that war with Germany was inevitable, and characterized it as a war not only of a defensive nature but rather of an offensive nature.

    Stalin intended to attack in July 1941, although Russian historians disagree about the precise date. Suvorov cites July 6, [Valeri] Danilov [a retired Soviet Colonel] gives July 2, while Melitiukhov writes: “The Red Army could not have carried out an attack before July 15.”

    David Bullshit: “Hitler made no secret of his contempt for and plans to subjugate the Russians – it is laid out for all to see in Mein Kampf.”

    David Bullshit, did you actually read ‘Mein Kampf’?

    Watch this short 2 minute video: Hitler by Rabbi Reuven: https://article.wn.com/view-bitchute/2022/04/04/Hitler_by_Rabbi_Reuven/

    Reuven: “Jews destroyed Russia (1:40 mark) with their Communism over there. Jews destroyed Russia, not Goyim. Don’t let anybody confuse you. Look at history, Karl Marx and all the others, all Jews. They destroyed Russia and he (Hitler) wrote in Chapter Two of ‘Mein Kampf’:
    “THEY DESTROYED RUSSIA AND NOW WANT TO DESTROY GERMANY, THAT IS WHY I HAVE TO DESTROY THEM.”

    David Bullshit, I am looking forward to your reply to Rabbi Reuven’s video.

    “I am not a Stalin supporter, however I am shocked that you give this Nazi bastard oxygen !!!!!”

    David Bullshit, I guess you are referring to me. You are shocked and I am laughing at you, actually feel pity for you at the same time.
    I see that you are driven by strong emotions and language and not by logic and facts. Sure signs of an unstable character and all in favour of censorship. Typical of those who are losing control of their narrative.

    History shows that Hitler saved Europe from Jewish Communism, but the Jews have planned the demise of the White European Nations, Amalek to them, for a very long time.
    What we are witnessing today with COVID-19 and the “War” in Ukraine is a full-blown worldwide Jewish Communist Revolution taking place. Jewish Communist Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum is Jewish and Communist to the core.

    “You will own nothing and you will be happy.” – Klaus Schwab
    Schwab himself is a disciple of Jewish War Criminal and Globalist Henry Kissinger.

    “You must understand. The leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. The October Revolution was not what you call in America the ‘Russian Revolution.’

    “It was an invasion and conquest over the Russian people. More of my countrymen suffered horrific crimes at their bloodstained hands than any people or nation ever suffered in the entirety of human history. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of this reality is proof that the global media itself is in the hands of the perpetrators.”

    “We cannot state that all Jews were Bolsheviks. But: Without Jews there would never have been Bolshevism. For a Jew nothing is more insulting than the truth. The blood maddened Jewish terrorists had murdered sixty-six million in Russia from 1918 to 1957.” – Alexander Solzhenitsyn

    From an Israeli website:
    Stalin’s Jews – We mustn’t forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish: https://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3342999,00.html

    Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.

    We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.

    That is what Pax Judaica = The New World Order has in store for the Goyim. Genocide on a massive scale worldwide. Already millions of people worldwide have died or have been injured by the Jewish Big Pharma “vaccines” which are nothing less but Killshots to depopulate the world.

    All Hitler did was to fight Jewish Communism and he was joined by 800,000 Russians fighting on the German side during WW2:

    And Cossacks: https://thegreateststorynevertold.tv/portfolio/part-9-betrayal-of-the-cossacks/

    Not to mention the anti-Communist volunteers from many European countries joining the SS.

    “Some may call it Communism, but I call it what it is: Judaism!” – Rabbi Stephen Wise
    https://justice4poland.com/2019/06/23/communism-is-judaism/

    David Bullshit, I guess you must by now be frothing at the mouth. Good. I am looking forward to your reply. But, please, do come up with some solid counter arguments as I do like a challenge. Don’t bore me with your emotional puerile Bovine Excrement as I won’t reply to that.

    In conclusion: Never start personal attacks as some, like me, won’t take kindly to them.

    Hitler made no secret of his contempt for and plans to subjugate the Russians – it is laid out for all to see in Mein Kampf. There is plenty of evidence that the attack on Russia was planned back in 1940.

    Of course Stalin knew a war was coming with Germany – you’d have to have been a fool not to see it. It is clear however that he did not expect it in 1941 – he refused to believe it initially and was actually in shock for weeks after the attack.

  7. THANKS to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s Fidesz party which won a two-thirds majority – and secured a result which has rattled the ruling liberal power base in Brussels – it looks like EU Banning Russian Gas is Not Possible Due to Hungary’s Veto.

    April 6, 2022 By NEWS WIRE

    INCREDIBLY, top EU officials are now admitting that a total ban on importing Russian gas will not be possible.

    The reason is an uncomfortable one for Brussels: Hungary has broken ranks with the EU ‘consensus’ on Russia and Ukraine, as the Orban government confirms it is now ready to pay for Russian natural gas in rubles.

    Hungary has also opposed any EU sanctions on Russian oil and gas, and has forbid any NATO arms shipments passing through Hungarian territory on its way to the war zone in Ukraine.

    The EU has now painted itself in a corner, as Russia supplies the EU with approximately one-third of its total gas supplies. However, Brussels has yet to apply any sanctions on oil or gas from Russia, as unelected bureaucrats from the European Council continue to struggle implementing any ban Russian gas and oil.

    RT International reports…

    EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell has announced that introducing a total ban on Russian gas imports has been ruled out because the bloc would not be able to pass a unanimous vote due to Hungary’s position.

    “A unanimous decision cannot be taken because there is one country, Hungary, which has said it will veto it,” the politician said in an interview with the Spanish outlet COPE.

    At the same time, Borrell seemed to acknowledge Budapest’s position, saying, “Giving up what you don’t have is easy,” adding that countries that are much more reliant on Russian gas imports are in a difficult position right now.

    Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban, who recently won re-election, said last week that Russian gas is his country’s only option, as the country is landlocked and wouldn’t be able to directly receive liquified gas from the US.

    “It’s not about putting on a sweater at night, or turning down the heating a little or paying a bit more for gas, it’s about the fact that if there is no energy coming from Russia, Hungary will be left with no energy at all,” said Orban.

    Nevertheless, Borell stressed the importance of EU countries becoming less reliant on Russian energy, arguing that buying gas from Russia is “financing the war.” He did, however, admit that it’s impossible to cut a 55% dependence on Russian gas overnight, referring to the situation in Germany, where the Federation of German Industries President Siegfried Russwurm said on Thursday that the German industry would “collapse” if it were cut off from Russian gas.

    But Borrell insists that his bloc must reduce its reliance on energy from Russia as fast as possible, and proposes to start with oil, as it is easier and there is more of it. Moscow currently supplies around 40% of all the gas used by EU nations and around a third of their oil…

    Hi aapkoning,

    I think you can forget about “strong action worldwide in LOCKSTEP with all the 194 countries”.

    There is no one to rely on to save us, but ourselves. If only the 8 billion people all over the world were united and would fight back by massive non-compliance and civil disobedience this World War Against Humanity would be over in no time.

    Unfortunately, the people are not united and the majority still gripped by fear of COVID-19 and intimidated by Government, media, so-called medical “experts” bullying and utter Police brutality.

    I often wonder why the Military in so many countries are not intervening to protect the peoples against their genocidal Governments?

    The Brave Warriors had/have no hesitations at all to fight for our Freedom and go to War against “Communism” in Korea, Vietnam. Again, in the “War On Terror” to fight for our Freedom in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, etc., to protect us and the peoples in those countries.

    But where are those Brave Warriors now that we need them to protect us from our own genocidal Communist Governments? Have they lost their Balls in Afghanistan? Looks like it.

    I guess the War Criminal par excellence, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, American diplomat and political scientist Dr. Henry Kissinger was right when he said:

    “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

    No wonder HK was/is the trusted advisor of many American Presidents and even Comrade Putin.

  10. Ukraine means “border region”. A “ukrainian nation” would otherwise translate as “border region nation”.

    There is no such thing as a Ukrainian “nation” except in the annals of Soviet Communism which the West is today attempting to validate and enforce! That is the FIRST mistruth and myth peddled by the West. The rest of the lies follow on from the first one.

    And we won’t mention the people who are terribly keen to ensure control of the Chinese Eurasian economic land route to Europe via Kiev.

    It seems that the people who live in the “border region” are being used as pawns not only for Western and Russian interests but to curtail Chinese interests too! Shutting China down from Europe might be an even greater priority for “Western” interests

    That is a good question.
    And this might surprise you, but the floods in Australia, like the huge fires a few years ago, are all engineered and part of the Great Reset.

    Watch Max Igan’s video ‘The Last World War’

    Watch from the 9 minute mark onwards Max Igan explaining in detail that they can and do control the weather and have been doing it for at least 20 years.

    “This is how we broke the drought in Australia in 2005. This is how we put out the fires in Victoria from Black Saturday in 2009.”

    Weather Modification Incorporated. – When most people look up, they see clouds. We see potential.
    http://www.weathermodification.com/index.php

    The floods are engineered to destroy the food supply, people’s properties, jobs, etc., so they become dependent on Government handouts.
    Governments wouldn’t do that, would they? They are doing it. They will destroy anything and anyone to push The Great Reset on us.

    Forced “vaccinations” all over the world already killing and injuring people by the millions and the numbers will only increase over time.

    Time for Australians to wake up to what State and Federal Governments are doing to them and fight back. Start with massive non-compliance and civil disobedience.

    Unfortunately, the majority of Australians, like anywhere else, still believe that COVID-19 exists and are still lining up for their booster shots and that the floods are caused by “climate change”.
