More useful idiot disinformation portraying Russia as helpless victim of America, the Big Bad Business Empire and Ukraine as passive geopolitical pawn.

Fact: Russia's genocidal Ukraine erasure project precedes American independence and NATO's formation by 200 years. Its correlation to ALL western behavior is a very simple number: zero.

Fact: Ukraine wants NO foreign troops on its soil except for foreign volunteers of the kind that went to Spain in 1936 to fight fascism.

Fact: Mr. Dunn called the war a mfd distraction last February 26, recommended Ukrainian surrender last April, forecast Russian victory last July and August, just before Ukraine's Kharkiv counteroffensive and did the same in October just before Ukraine retook Kherson. But, like a crypto promoter who never publishes past performance, he never mentions nor is held accountable for previously inaccurate, evidence-free speculations.

He is also perpetually silent about Russia's manufacturer of mass graves at scale in Bucha, Irpin, Izyum, Mariupol, peddling the odious idiocy of moral equivalence where there is none. To legitimize appeasement he needs to find Ukrainian military failure, corruption, Ukrainian Nazis and Russian victimhood of the big, bad NATO American empire where there aren't any, quoting useful idiots like Jacques Baud, who denies Bucha and Navalny's poisoning and Aaron Mate, a defender of chemical mass murderer Assad. Dunn is a de fact to defender and ally of these guys quoted below:

Russian economist and pundit Mikhail Khazin remarks – “They need to be partially eliminated” – YouTube video (December 27, 2016)

Ukraine has “several million people [not loyal to Russia]” who “need to be partially eliminated and partially squeezed out.”

“New Russia,” or the territories from Kharkov, Odessa, Zaporozhye, and Dnepropetrovsk, “should be joined to the Russian regions, with full denazification, deukrainization.”

Russia should institute a “complete ban on Ukrainian fonts, Ukrainian texts, programs on [the] Ukrainian language, on teaching Ukrainian – ie completely.”

These implementations will cause a “surplus population – let the surplus population go to the [Russian] Far East.”

Former Putin aide Vladislav Surkov in Q&A – Surkov: “I’m Interested in Acting Against Reality” – Actual Comments website (February 26, 2020)

Surkov’s “vanity is forever satisfied by the fact that [he] put [his] hand and head into the building of a new Russian state.”

There is “no Ukraine,” although there is “Ukrainianism” – a “specific mental disorder. Surprisingly brought to the extreme degree passion for ethnography. Such bloody lore. Muddle instead of the state. There is borscht, Bandera, bandura. But there is no nation.”

Donbass “does not deserve such humiliation” of returning to Ukraine. Ukraine “does not deserve such honor.”

Putin – “On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians” – Kremlin (July 12, 2021)

The incorporation of “western Russian lands into the single state” was the product of “common faith, shared cultural traditions, and – I would like to emphasize it once again – language similarity.”

There is “no historical basis” for the “idea of Ukrainian people as a nation separate from the Russians.”

Ukrainization was “often imposed on those who did not see themselves as Ukrainians.”

Modern Ukraine is “entirely the product of the Soviet era” shaped on the “lands of historical Russia.” Hence, Russia “was robbed.”

Ukraine’s leaders “began to mythologize and rewrite history, edit out everything that united [Russia and Ukraine], and refer to the period when Ukraine was part of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union as an occupation.”

The “slogans, ideology, and blatant aggressive Russophobia” of “radical nationalist groups” have become “defining elements of state policy in Ukraine.”

Ukraine “peddle[s] Russophobia” and prefers to “exploit the image of the ‘victim of external aggression.’”

Russia and Ukraine together have “always been and will be many times stronger and more successful. For [they] are one people.“

Medvedev op-ed – “Why Contacts with the Current Ukrainian Leadership are Meaningless” – Kommersant (October 11, 2021)

Ukrainian leaders are “people who do not have any stable self-identification. Who are they, what country are they citizens of, what is their historical identity, ethnic component, what gods do they pray to?”

There are “no fools to fight for Ukraine. And it is pointless for [Russia] to deal with vassals. Business must be done with the suzerain.”

Putin in press conference (February 8, 2022) and in official remarks (February 21, 2022) – An Independent Legal Analysis of the Russian Federation’s Breaches of the Genocide Convention in Ukraine and the Duty to Prevent – Newlines Institute for Strategy and Policy

“‘Like it or not, take it, my beauty’” references a “vulgar Russian rhyme about necrophiliac rape, implying an intention to inflict similar destruction on Ukraine and a view of Ukraine as a corpse.”

Modern Ukraine is considered to be “entirely created by Russia or, to be more precise, by Bolshevik, Communist Russia.”

Russia is “ready to show what real decommunization would mean for Ukraine.”

NEW Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov – Telegram posts by Kadyrov – Telegram (Feb. 21 – Aug. 3, 2022)

“All of today’s Ukraine at one time did not even dream of those territories that were given to it with one stroke of the pen by the Bolsheviks. Without those broad reckless gestures, she, as a country, would not have represented anything from the beginning… Sooner or later everything returns to its native freedom. So it was with the Crimea. Donetsk and Luhansk did not take root either. I think this is not the limit.” (February 21)

“Chechen fighters take an active part in a special operation to cleanse Ukraine from Bandera, nationalists and terrorists.” (March 8)

“Very soon, these brave [Russian] warriors will erase this vile, vile phenomenon called “nationalism” from the pages of Ukrainian history.” (March 19)

“I do not envy the fate of the Bandera dogs, because their sad fate is already a foregone conclusion by our valiant warriors. My dear brothers… intend to excise this hated Nazi tumor. Very soon, the hands of Chechen fighters will bring final peace and order throughout Ukraine. They intend to personally behead all the shaitans hiding behind thick walls, or, what is even more vile for civilians.” (using the Islamic term “shaitans for devils, or Satan. March 24)

“The Kyiv authorities have chosen a path doomed to death. Having once chosen the side of outright Western criminals, the entire Ukronazi trash forever crossed out the possibility of peaceful coexistence in a religious and civilized society.” (March 24)

“The Nazis once again demonstrate their true essence, the essence of rodent pests.” (April 2)

Russian forces “are conducting cleansing operations from the surviving Bandera rabble, Nazis and shaitans.” (April 13)

“With such motivation and fighting spirit, we simply do not have the right to leave a single nationalist and Banderist on Ukraine soil.” (April 26)

For eight years, Donbass “was oppressed by non-humans from gangs of Ukraine.” (May 19)

“I am convinced that Russian President Vladimir Putin made the only right decision, ordering to destroy the American chimera in its very embryo in Ukraine.” (June 26)

“This is exactly how the purge of the entire Luhansk People’s Republic took place – competently, quickly and accurately.” (July 10)

“Europeans, Ukrainians, wake up! Save your gene pool, not Zelensky’s status.” (July 24)

“It cost us a lot of effort to squeeze out of our lands this abomination that has bred at the suggestion of the same West.” (August 3)

Putin declaring Russia’s full-scale assault on Ukraine – “Putin Orders ‘Special Military Operation’ for Ukraine” – Bloomberg News (February 24, 2022)

The special military operation’s goal is “the protection of people who during eight years, suffer from abuse and genocide from the Kyiv regime.”

Whoever tries to stop Russia and “further create threats to [Russia’s] country, to [the Russian] people, should know that Russia’s response will be immediate and lead [them] to such consequences that [they] have never faced in [their] history.“

NEW Head of the Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky – Telegram posts by Slutsky – Telegram (Feb. 24 – Sept. 30, 2022)

“Considering that Washington and Brussels have rejected Russian proposals on global security issues, and Kiev has been refusing to implement the Minsk agreements for 8 years, the demilitarization of Ukraine is the only way left… [Russia and Ukraine] is one people. Think about [their] shared history. [They] have common victories. One culture, one faith.” (Feb. 24)

“Today in Ukraine there is not only a special operation of the RF Armed Forces for liberation from neo-Nazism. In fact, this is the culmination of a fierce civilizational battle unleashed not by us. But the price of victory in it now is salvation from the destruction of the entire Russian world.” (May 7)

“All of this once again demonstrates that Russia’s special operation in Ukraine must be brought to an end. This is a question of the survival of the Russian world and Russian civilization.” (July 17)

“The decision to conduct the SVO was the only correct one. Russia is saving the Donbass from the genocide and terror of the Nazi regime, which is far from being controlled in Kyiv… Holding referendums on joining Russia in the LPR and DPR, as well as in the liberated territories of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, all subsequent steps (we have no doubt what they will be), the decree on partial mobilization is the way to preserve our common fatherland.” (Sept. 21)

“This is the harsh truth. Until the last Ukrainian, so until the last Ukrainian.” (Sept. 30
