Is there anything in the world worse than war? It may be only the sort of war where the truth is sacrificed to fit propagandistic agenda of the opposing sides. This is exactly the case with the present conflict in Ukraine Amid lack of information the words of the direct eyewitnesses to the events, right from the spot, are only welcomed, just like those revelations of the Swedish participants of fighting in Donbass.
Sadly enough, substantial part of the forum reports has been subject to censorship as the stuff mostly contradicting the official version of the events in Ukraine. The general line of this censorship may be easily defined from the numerous pro-Ukrainian comments (with the wide use of Cyrillic symbols in them), actually giving a lead in discussions. Some exempted stuff was preserved in the Google cache, something failed to come through indexation and was lost. Still, the level of western countries’ involvement in the civil war in Ukraine is being visibly restored now.
The key moment in the discussion is the factual acknowledgement of the fact that some commissioned officers and secret services’ staffers from European countries are available now in the Ukrainian volunteer units.
One of the initiators of the discussion is a veteran of the Azov battalion having the nickname Sinkomies. He is a member of the Hemvarnet (national militia reserve corps subordinate to Defense ministry of Sweden).
At least three Polish commissioned officers are now present in Donbass: mjr Jan Dombrovskiy, por. Lukas Voycehoskiy and ppor. Thomas Novak from JWK (Jednostka Wojskowa Komandosow). They participated in fighting near Vuhlehirsk, Logvinove, Debaltseve, and Shyrokyne. The Counterintelligence Department of Security Service of Ukraine is in charge of the foreign officers’ activities in Ukraine.
When facing this sort of attitude western officers try to give Kyiv tit for tat. Swedish veterans of Donbass fighting often mention low morale of the Ukrainian nation, lack of military skills with the Ukrainian soldiers, and evident inability of Kyiv to effectively control volunteer units.
It actually doesn’t matter much who explodes you, shoots you or attacks you with a knife: a follower of Breivik or ISIS! Their slogans are also of no interest to you. Those Europeans and Americans, who have Donbass experience, especially if they are commissioned officers, possess all the necessary skills and technical tools to continue war at home ‘to defend western civilization’.
