In an extensive report on the Ukrainian sphere, the caller noted significant manipulation and lies about Russian forces in a report published by Covert Action magazine.
The witness noted in her experience that the Russians were received as liberators in the city of Hnichesk in southern Ukraine, next to the Sea of Azov, and therefore in several places visited.
The caller’s report corroborates the report of Patrick Lancaster, a Russian-speaking US Navy veteran whose reporting on the eight-year war in Donbass is respected by investigative journalists.
Last week I joined the Russian army and visited two cities in southeastern Ukraine. He said that the first city was called Henichesk, a port city along the Sea of Azov, in the Kherson Territory (province) in southern Ukraine, on the border with Crimea.
The Russian army, which was patrolling the city, accompanied us – journalists – to protect us. But in reality the protection was not necessary. He said that the people of Hnichesk, at least most of whom I spoke to, were very happy to have the Russian army there.
Everyone I spoke to said the same thing: They felt protected from criminal gangs, with their Nazi ideology, that destroyed cities. He explained that they, in turn, expect Ukraine to prosper again.
Since the 2014 coup, the Ukrainian economy has turned into very bad shape, according to several Henichesk citizens. In the market, food was scarce. And the Russian army provides humanitarian aid, which it does in all towns and cities liberated from these criminal gangs. He noted that this is what many Ukrainians call it.
Many residents of Henichesk told me that when the Russians entered their village, they left everything as is. I heard this said many times. No damage, no deaths, no injuries. They said that most people are happy to have the Russians there.
Reality vs Fiction
Western propaganda claims that the Russian army is besieging the cities and that the population is starving. From what I have noticed, van den Ende said, the latter is not true either in Henichesk or in the next city, Melitopol, which I also visited.
Western countries do not care about the economy and population (Ukrainians), because Ukrainians have many similarities with “sister” countries – Russia and Belarus – and it is natural to get along with them. They share the same culture, the same language, and the history of being invaded by the Nazis in World War II.
The reporter noted that the West is only interested in the benefits to its economies, and stressed that the Ukrainian people are a pawn in a larger geopolitical game that will cause a potential disaster for all of humanity.
