The report out of Germany which Professor Michael Hudson of the University of Kansas City – Missouri referred to in a previous post, during an interview on The Real News Network, was produced by German news group ARD Monitor. A video of the stunning report has been uploaded to YouTube with English subtitles (Thanks to a fellow blogger, Lo who gave directions to a version with English subtitles). As Professor Hudson stated in his interview, the report has gone viral in Europe and around the world, but United States media companies have blacked out any information.
In an effort to disseminate this urgent report which has the potential to avert war, the video is post here in German with English subtitles. As one who doe not speak German, some of the comments following the film were translated and transcribed giving some insights, before the video gets uploaded with English translation.
The ARD Monitor investigative journalists have concluded that ousted Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych was not responsible for the over 100 deaths on Maidan in Kiev one month ago, that those opposed to Yanukovych were behind the sniper killings, and that because of new information everything has dramatically changed in Ukraine.
“Monitor reports as one should expect from every news actually: neutral.”
“I just hope to finally wake up the other media and report the truth… But unfortunately (so far I do not see anything except this here) that was just a one time thing.”
“The media don’t have to wake up, the long known largely know. Those who sit on the other side of the ground glass are the ones who should wake up.”
“One such subjective contribution to the subject, I would not have expected more after the experience of the last few months from the mainstream media. But it is, unfortunately, probably only a prominent exception to the rule, and sheds a harsh light on how one-sided, biased, and ultimately manipulated and a lie the other coverage is mostly. These are the death throes of an independent and critical journalism. The transatlantic media “elite” will soon have brought the last dissenter on line. They want to drive us into a conflict with Russia, due to interests that are not ours, and the truth is always the first casualty of war.”
“What! That came on ARD? Why not kip so many here?”
“Monitor is known for critical reporting! This makes sense, too. But once we see a percentage of how these reporting goes down! What happened there, but it is clear! So it is allowed to specify also reports! However, it is quite obvious that it will not correspond to what will officially announce the ‘current investigation’.”
“What is going on in Ukraine is just not as black / white as some would like. Very good post by ARD!”
“The way I see it, pulling as the U.S. (NATO), the threads and then demand even by President Putin, to ease the situation, they want war because it again just as so often in other countries before, going around the resources (oil, natural gas). After each right idea the United States is a highly aggressive rogue state, which brings us to genetically modified foods, now also a war to Europe. Do not forget, there are only a few psychopaths who inflict this madness and not the whole American people. I am very glad that President Putin as a prudent man acting is at the top. In our political puppets I have now given up hope that they take their oath of office to act for the benefit of the German people, seriously. So we must try to stop this war-mongering of the West on peaceful demonstrations.”
“Looks you times this contribution times and then FINALLY begin the truth to spread.”
“And something in the mass media? I’m almost impressed!”
“Why has this video only 3,600 clicks? This must all friends, relatives, acquaintances are distributed by each of. We need more neutral coverage, because then there is no military threats and economic sanctions. The situation here can now not just in black and white or we divide the good and the evil.”
“People finally wake up, it’s the same script, as in Venezuela 2002! Exactly the same story. Which were neither rebellious nor government people who have shot there! It needs a catalyst, which then justifies gewlt and the coup. So they wanted to wegputschen (100% matching screenplay), and so one has weggeputscht Yanukovich. It always needs a legitimation to apply non-violent, either there are skyscrapers that are attacked or it is from 5:45 shot back. Even Schicklgruber Adolf, a justification story has come up. Wakes up, the USA is a terror state and its vassal European rich he is now in every way.”
“ARD Monitor suddenly sees the fault of the Ukrainian opposition, having organized in Kiev on the Maidan on 20 February 2014 massacre by snipers.”
“ARD journalists conducted an investigation into who actually shot demonstrators and Berkut on Independence Maidan February 20, 2014 and come to the conclusion Ukrainian opposition is guilty for this bloodbath.”
Please help stop the violence and threat of war in Ukraine and beyond. Please share this video as far and wide as humanly possible. As you will witness, this is a real matter of life and death – war and peace.
