Photos From The Ukraine Civil War: Casualties Reported In City Of Lugansk After Fighter Jet Attack

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Considering that even German publication Spiegel is now reporting that that "Vladimir Putin has won the propaganda war over Ukraine and the West is divided", it is hardly surprising that western coverage of the Ukraine civil war has ground to a halt: without a coherent agenda, the western propaganda machine is unsure of just what the right angle is in its coverage of Ukraine events, which is why as in the case of last summer's Syrian conflict coverage, the "free media" has simply decided to push back events in east Ukraine to the page 8, if cover it at all.

Unfortunately, for the locals in the separatist regions, while the west may now chose to simply close its eyes to the consequences of its intervention the civil war is all too real and deadly: as RIA reports, there were multiple casualties after a fighter jet attack struck the eastern city of Luhansk. "The assault was followed by heavy gunfire on the ground, causing panic among civilians." RT has more:

At least five people have been killed in the attack, according to RIA Novosti. Many wounded are still trapped inside the administration headquarters, which caught on fire. The death toll may rise.

 

The building façade has been seriously damaged. The wounded are being evacuated from the administration HQ. About six ambulance vehicles have arrived at the site.

 

Large blood stains inside the HQ could be seen on live-streaming video from the area, with pieces of glass and stones also visible on the floor. The camera operator was choking with smoke. On the outside, many windows are shattered, shell fragments covering the nearby area and dark plumes of smoke are coming from the fourth floor.

 

“The fire has engulfed the third and fourth floors of the building, and the windows have been blown out. There are shards of glass everywhere. I saw paramedics carrying people out of the entrance,” a witness told RT.

 

Minutes earlier, heavy machine-gun shooting was reported in the center of Lugansk, as fierce fighting between the local self-defense squads and Kiev forces renewed after a brief truce.

Kiev officials were quick to deny that Ukraine had launched a fighter jet attack against its own people: something which caused a quick and violent condemnation of the former Ukraine president and his even more prompt ouster.

  • UKRAINE FORCES HAD ONLY WARNING FLIGHTS OVER LUHANSK: OFFICIAL

So what is really going on in Lugansk? The following just released pictures should provide some perspective.

This might be perceived as bad taste, but the economic results of this conflict could be very positive for both Ukraine and Russia. Government spending has sharply increased in both countries since the beginning of this conflict, which is already reflecting in GDP. I'll be very interested to see the growth figures for these countries as the battle progresses.

And the aircraft has to be that one SU-27 Ukraine still has flying.. for now.

Or FBI, CIA, and a host of mercenaries from the west and perhaps a certain apartheid state?

 

They may be russian by ethnicity, but they aren't part of the regular russian forces and no doubt have lived where they are fighting for longer than the folks shooting at them have.

The guy with the shotgun ended up dead.  There is a reason the AR-15 and M-4 are popular.  Lead on target, sniper capability.  Get a AR-15 or at least a Mosin, 308, or 30-06.

I think those guys got what they got. IF he worked for someone like, oh I don't know, academi, he may have access to the cutting edge but those guys fighting for their people don't have access to the same printing presses and arms that the imf / nato side does ( officially and otherwise ).

Silky:  Looks like a single barrel 10 gauge to me that I'm trying to identify by its barrel sling attachment.

I would be incredibly surprised to see a single shot 10 gauge...  Looks like a standard, run of the mill 12 to me.  10 gauges are for assholes like me who hunt in fields and don't want to bother trying to judge distance.  I've seen a 24" barrel, but most are 26-28" and are noticeably thicker than a 12 gauge...  I also sincerely doubt that a 10 gauge would be a combat effective gun simply because they tend to have heavier barrels and parts due to recoil (even the best gas operated 10s that weigh 11+ lbs still give a noticeable kick)...  I would also think 10 gauge ammo would be exceedingly rare on a battlefield.

I wouldn't be man enough to pull the trigger on it if it was a 10...  which is not something you want to bring into combat.

Yes, a 10 guage would not be a very efficient weapon in open warfare for lack of range. If it is the only gun available, it is better than throwing stones or weilding a knife.

I'd say "phuk u" to whoever thinks this was some bogus inside job. That blast to me was way too big to be from a RPG, and as far as it nt matching what "rockets" firing from a sukhoi look like, can we please have a list of all available munitions said plane can be equipped with?

 

ALso they say a MAN-PAD wasn't fired, but my guess is that at least one was, which is why the plane released flares. We've seen that these freedom fighters have the ability to down aircraft.

 

Either way that blog strikes me to be like the brown moses blog on syria - a bullshit propaganda hack who is funded by NGOs to peddle a consistent lie.

You can tell they are Russian military by that great equipment they carry right, like say that shotgun.

Remember the pics from the forces in Crimea and compare to these guys. Not much in common.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone.It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.

Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.

Actually, Qaddaffi didn't.  Jen Psaki was clear when she said the problem was that Qaddaffi had the "potential" to use his air force (by this time Qaddaffi's forces were blowing the living snot out of the "rebels" and on the verge of retaking Benghazi).  Ms. Psaki's defense I likened to setting a bar so low for the use of force, a cripple in a wheelchair could roll right over it.

When they fire the same bullets a little dressing doesn't count for much.

Just like in automobile racing, the driver, or in this case the shooter, is 99% of the equation.  Whatever you have practice, practice, and practice.  I guarantee you when the SHTF no one will be looking at brand names on guns.

 

9 mm, AR-15, 308, shotgun, and Mosin Nagant 7.62x54 are all good weapons that can be had for under $1,000.  Some for less than $500.

The DSA FAL receiver is machined from 4140 steel, not stamped like the SKS.  The FAL's .308 round is much more powerful than SKS' 7.62x39.  You can choose from a large selection of barrel length and magazine capacity. DSA FAL is made in America.

The SKS is certainly a good choice for folks on a budget, or those in Eastern Europe and the Middle East, where there is much ammo to be had.

Really? An SKS is a perfectly decent choice. It's a reliable, durable, and accurate semi-auto battle rifle in a hard-hitting caliber and at less than $300 the price is hard to beat. Plenty of aftermarket accessories out there too.

Of course I'd rather have the FAL if given a choice but an SKS does just fine.

"...a barrel that's too short."

I have a .308 semi-auto with a 16.5" barrel (w/ pinned brake).  Muzzle velocity (which I've measured) is sufficient to make it effective out to ~800 yards around sea level; far past the effective range of your average punter.  A new suppressor for it adds another ~6 inches to the length, though I haven't had a chance yet to measure the impact on MV.  Makes for a fine 800 yard semi-auto sniper rifle (shoots 1/4" groups with the right ammo).

Seems to be a decided lack of interest in axe murders and setting bodies on fire with gasoline in Odessa. That sort of thing ruins the narrative of the loyal Nazi Ukrainians trying to save their country from the evil pro-Russian terrorists.

Expect a chemical gas attack from separatists against the loyalist forces. Maybe the second time using a false flag gas attack will be the charm to get boots on the ground.

Kiev Post: "Time for US to supply direct military aid to Ukraine"

Barely a day after winning the May 25 presidential election in Ukraine, billionaire Petro Poroshenko called on the U.S. to provide his beleaguered country with “direct military aid” and help “build up [its] armed forces.”

U.S. President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with Poroshenko in Warsaw on June 4. He must know that Poroshenko will put a request for lethal military aid to him.

[...] In short, as Poroshenko understands, only if the West helps it acquire a strong, well equipped, well-trained army will Ukraine be capable of defending itself against Russian military aggression, whatever form it takes, and thus defeat Putin’s imperial designs, to the advantage of the cause of liberty the world over.

Hopefully Obama grasps the foregoing elementary political truth and this time grants the Ukrainian government’s request for lethal military assistance. If not, in his eagerness to minimize the use of military means to deal with the problem, he will unwittingly contribute to the perpetuation and perhaps escalation of military conflict in the region – with potentially dire consequences not only for Ukraine but also for Europe and the world as a whole.

The Strategic Culture Foundation warned in May that if Petro Poroshenko, “the US favorite rote son,” won the Ukraine presidential race, that the result would further split the country:

“Many regions refuse to recognize as President this chocolate king who is notorious for pocketing government money. Poroshenko has no chance to stop the bloody conflict even scrupulously carrying out all the orders given by Joe Biden, Victoria Nuland and Geoffrey Pyatt. Besides, the mission of putting an end to bloodshed has never been set by his US bosses…” 

SCF says of Poroshenko, whom “Forbes lists as the 130th richest Jew in the world with 1, 6 billion dollars,” that he is “one of the most odious figures in Ukrainian politics and heads the list of the country’s corrupted persons:

Billionaire Poroshenko started his business by laundering the money of Soviet times’ administrators. He has never been an entrepreneur to start a business of his own. The story is invented. He made a head start thanks to the criminal connections of his father sentenced for large-scale theft in 1986. Having served the sentence, Poroshenko Sr. launched his own business making his son involved in the activities. The business was dirty, it all started with plundering state property by armed gangs. The Poroshenko family had plans to expand the activities beyond Ukraine. Tatyana Mikoyan, a well-known Kiev-based lawyer, remembers what the family did in Transnistria, ‘It was horrible back in the 1990s: illegal arms, prostitutes, drugs – all bringing profits to father and son.’ Poroshenko Sr. was awarded for his merits – in 2009 he received the Hero of Ukraine decoration bought for him by his son who paid to then President Yushenko, the Godfather to Petro Poroshenko’s children. The would-be President-elect is well known for misappropriating budget funds. He has the reputation of someone who knows how to make money out of thin air. Many times he has been accused of being involved in large scale corruption schemes, open lobbying, embezzlement of budget allocations, tax evasion, illegal operations to acquire shares and physically threatening political opponents and competitors. Certainly he is not just another swindler but a tycoon, an owner of huge and diversified business empire.”

Paul Craig Roberts today reviews “What Obama Told Us at Westpoint.” Hint: It’s all about his and America's “exceptionalism.”

“At West Point Obama told us, to the applause of West Point cadets, that “American exceptionalism” is a doctrine that justifies whatever Washington does.  If Washington violates domestic and international law by torturing ‘detainees’ or violates the Nuremberg standard by invading countries that have undertaken no hostile action against the US or its allies,  ‘exceptionalism’ is the priest’s blessing that absolves Washington’s sins against law and international norms. Washington’s crimes are transformed into Washington’s affirmation of the rule of law.  

“Here is Obama in his own words:  ‘I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being. But what makes us exceptional is not our ability to flout international norms and the rule of law; it is our willingness to affirm them through our actions.’ 

“Actions indeed. In the 21st century ‘American exceptionalism’ has destroyed seven countries in whole or in part. Millions of people are dead, maimed, and displaced, and all of this criminal destruction is evidence of Washington’s reaffirmation of international norms and the rule of law. Destruction and murder are merely collateral damage from Washington’s affirmation of international norms.

«American exceptionalism» also  means that US presidents can lie through their teeth and misrepresent those they choose to demonize.  Listen to Obama’s misrepresentations of the Putin and Assad governments:  ‘Russia’s aggression towards former Soviet states unnerves capitals in Europe . . . In Ukraine, Russia’s recent actions recall the days when Soviet tanks rolled into Eastern Europe .’  Obama misrepresents Assad as ‘a dictator who bombs and starves his own people.’

“Did any of the cadets in Obama’s West Point audience wonder why, if Assad is a brutal dictator who bombs and starves his own people, the Syrian people are supporting Assad instead of the American-backed ‘liberation forces…’”

Perhaps there’s no better illustration on how you’ve missed the truth than when Americans were forced to choose their president between Barack Obama and John McCain.

For this illustrates how extensive the corruption of the political system and the government leadership circle has become. In fact, the loss of representative government took a major turn downward when the US currency, once a proud medium of exchange, was turned over to a private business. That action in 1913 began the systematic servitude of Americans and provided the fuel for the wars of aggression throughout the world.

The point is: Today’s America is not Thomas Jefferson’s America. This City on a Hill envisioned by Winthrop no longer exists thanks to the tyrants spawned by the Federal Reserve.

'Americans' say: Winter is coming, grow the beard, chop the logs. It takes an ax for that.

Reducing the achievement of 'americans' to the 21 th century is framing. Gross framing.

Even though 'americans' are in demand for a fabled past (removing artificially 223 years out of the 237 years of exercize of 'americanism' provides that much needed fabled past), thinking that people who notice the not that subtle subterfuge must be on a mission or have an ax to grind show once again how much 'americanism' is all about submission.

Because complying with this type of extremelly gross manipulation demands total consent of the compliant side.

The consent of the governed as 'americans' say.
