In an interview with Gromadske.TV, Markian Lubkivsky, the adviser to the head of the SBU (the Ukrainian version of the CIA) stated there are NO RUSSIAN TROOPS ON UKRANIAN SOIL! This unexpected announcement came as he fumbled with reporters' questions on the subject. According to his statement, he said the SBU counted about 5000 Russian nationals, but not Russian soldiers in Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics.

He further clarified that there were no organized Russian units in Donbass. The SBU thinks there are representatives of the Russian FSB (Russian CIA) and mentors who provide training and organization that grew the Novorussia army quickly in its fight with Ukraine.

He went on further to state that the SBU estimates the armies of Donetsk and Lugansk Peoples Republics are about 20-25 thousand strong.

This confession will sting the Kiev government, that has repeatedly told its allies that Russia is attacking. Daily on Ukrainian news, official stories declare that Ukrainian security forces are fighting Russian armed forces. As part of the propaganda, Ukrainians are told that the Ukrainian army is defeating companies of Russian paratroopers, Spetz Natz Group Alpha (the Russian version of Navy SEALS), and all sorts of special forces. If you were an average Ukrainian what would you think?

The reporter doing the interview, ultra-nationalist Natasha Stanko may not survive the line of questioning she started. Earlier I reported on her tweet celebrating the punisher battalion Aydar murdering Ukrainian troops that refused to kill civilians. She thought that was funny.

Yesterday Kiev ramped the war back up with non-stop shelling across the entire front in Donbass. In Donetsk where the shelling has never stopped, two children were killed and 4 wounded at school #63. in Donetsk. Graham Phillips broke the news from on the scene.

Among others killed in other shelling at Donetsk was a ten year old girl and her grandmother. They were shredded by an artillery shell direct hit .

Trying to stay ahead in the propaganda war Kiev is waging, National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said an investigation was opened. The Kiev Post once again shows itself as another propaganda organ by combining their statement with Amnesty International. It reads: "'The death of two children and the injury of four others from shelling while they were playing football on a school playing field in eastern Ukraine are evidence that both sides in the Donbass conflict ignore their legal obligations and fail to protect civilians,' Amnesty International's Deputy Director for Europe and Central Asia Denis Krivosheev said"

Before being cut off, Ukrainian channel 112, news reporter Roman Hnatiuk reported from the scene that unfortunately it looked like Ukrainian artillery killed the children. He based this on the reported trajectory and eye witnesses. He also noted that locals can't understand why Putin has not come to protect them. That honest reporter was called a Russian sympathizer and will probably faces jail time or execution.

The Kiev Post and Western news outlets give the impression that the Novorussia army fired rockets on its own positions and city, the very people they are protecting. It doesn't help the Ukrainian case when their own men post the video of themselves committing the crime and laughing as they fire. Self-dated November 5th, they are firing at Donetsk in the video. This was recorded by Radio 24, a Ukrainian news source showing Kiev's soldiers laughing as they fire and kill the child pictured at the beginning of the article.

This type of obfuscation has been a favorite with Ukrainian nationalists since WW2 when they murdered over 500,000 people including over 150,000 Jews. The denial of mass murder at this level has included saying there were Jewish SS Battalions and that they killed the Jews at Babi Yar. The other response is that the murdered Jewish and Ukrainian population committed atrocities, " We committed atrocities, everybody committed atrocities! "

These arguments are still put forward today by Kiev, using the same argument against Donbass. The text responds to arguments that Ukrainian nationalists did not commit atrocities. The person, Professor John Paul Himka, is arguing with -Askold Lozynskyj, who wasn't just the president of the Ukrainian World Congress (Representative Congress for Ukrainians in the Diaspora worldwide) prior to 2010, he also became their main representative at the United Nations. Worldwide Ukrainians are represented by an ultra nationalist governing body and have representation at the UN. The importance of this is that their working argument -- they committed attrocitie s, we committed atrocities, everybody committed atrocities! -- has never changed. The atrocities listed below shows why they want the world to think Donbass is complicit in Kiev's own handy work.
