Paris, February 24, 2023: Socrates George Kazolias– The Collective West are dead wrong to be jubilating over the UN vote calling on Russia to withdraw behind the “internationally recognized borders” of Ukraine.
But before the jingoists in the West celebrate too loudly that the imperialist powers of the US and Europe got a majority of countries to vote in favor of Germany’s proposed resolution, let me remind you that these are the same countries the ‘Collective West’ bullied, threatened, and bribed into backing the invasion of Iraq, the occupation of Afghanistan, the brutal aggressions of Yemen, Serbia, Libya, Syria, just to mention a few.

This is an abstract from a long and on-going discussion I am having with an American friend on the ‘misconceptions’ of what is happening in Ukraine and on Putin and Russia. I am convinced Russia is on the right side of history here.
This is a response to a correspondence I am having with a good friend who seems to believe we are the good guys in the Ukraine mess. As I try to explain, we have never been the good guys. It doesn’t mean the others are but I am more concerned with what we are doing wrong. Please leave a comment at the end.
I must protest at the dishonestly and openly propagandistic nature of an October 30, 2022, Associated Press article on Bucha and alleged Russian massacres (click here). I am not denying war crimes have been committed, on both sides. I am denying there is proof of them being ordered by the Russian high command and that there were crimes to the extent alleged, especially in Bucha. This article by AP lies through omission and implying things that may not be so. Hear-say is not fact?
by Socrates George Kazolias: It is hard to find the truth about what is happening in Ukraine. Neither side can be trusted and the censorship, especially in Europe, and online, is a major handicap. But if you look hard enough, and study past experience, you can fit pieces together.
