Just over one month ago, Russian forces officially entered Ukraine after amassing troops at the country’s border for months. Predictably, Ukraine’s media launched a propaganda campaign to aid its government in defending the country. This is fully expected and has occurred in most civilizations when facing an invasion.
But since then, Western media has joined the chorus, constantly parading the war-time propaganda of Ukraine, demonizing any dissenters for having different viewpoints on the invasion and its causes.
Some websites and publications have even been banned for posting differing opinions, with regulators citing “Russian propaganda” as the reasoning.
Tucker Carlson, America’s #1 primetime television host, has even been called a Putin puppet. But in a brand new CNN interview, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has confirmed exactly what many right-wing pundits were banned for reporting.
In the shocking interview with Fareed Zakaria, Zelenskyy says that NATO membership was never on the table for Ukraine, but Joe Biden and NATO wanted to leave the door open publicly anyway in order to anger Putin.
This has undoubtedly played a part in the provocation of Russia’s invasion.
The invasion of Ukraine is a massive tragedy of Russia’s fault and their own making, but as an independent publication, we are striving to tell the real story, not just the propaganda spewed by either side.
This story, which should be a massive headline across outlets, will not be covered by any of the major networks, including CNN, which conducted the interview.
It is naive to think that a former KGB chief would bite on a trap!
