You Have The Blood Of The Ukrainian People On Your Hands
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — At first, it seemed like a small story, but we are sure there is more to it and a detailed investigation would ultimately expose a world of crime, cover-up, fear and favour – reaching all the way to the top of the Kremlin. Someone from the Kremlin insiders is sabotaging the Putin regime. Someone did this because they were linked to the war crimes in Ukraine by their own guilty secrets in their own newsrooms. Too many journalists in Russia had simply ceased to function as independent truth-tellers. The news executive in Russia turned into a preening power-monger, puffed with wealth and self-importance, happy to join the Kremlin elite and not to expose it. Russian television settings may need a little re-configuration by the FSB very soon. This is what happened: Russian satellite television menus were hacked today to show viewers in Moscow messages about the war in Ukraine. The slogans appeared just before the Victory Day parade on Red Square at which Vladimir V. Putin of Russia gave his speech. “You have blood on your hands”, according to screenshots. The photographs showed Moscow satellite television menus on Victory Day, when Russia celebrated the 77th anniversary of Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany, with every channel showing anti-war slogans: “You have the blood of thousands of Ukrainians and hundreds of dead children on your hands,” said one slogan. “The TV and the authorities are lying. No to war,” said another slogan. The story of the TV-hacking scandal happens to have unfolded in Russia, but it could have happened anywhere in the world.
The Russo-Ukrainian War[e] is an ongoing war which began in February 2014 between Russia (together with pro-Russian separatist forces) and Ukraine.[f] Both nations are former members of the now dissolved communist Soviet Union prior to its dissolution in 1991. Various agreements were made when they separated in 1991 and each started transitioning towards market-oriented economies. By 2013, much of Ukraine and it’s national parliament wanted closer ties with Western Europe. On the other hand, others including the then-President Viktor Yanukovych and his cabinet, wanted closer ties with Russia. Before the conflict was resolved though, a series of large-scale, mostly peaceful protests began. Soon, violence broke out, especially in January and February 2014, resulting in the overthrow of the pro-Russian Yanukovych. As a result of this, the parliament appointed an interim government seeking greater ties with Western Europe. Soon Russia initiated military action, initially focused on the status of Crimea and the Donbas, internationally recognised as part of Ukraine. The first eight years of the conflict included the Russian annexation of Crimea (2014) and the war in Donbas (2014–present) between Ukraine and Russian-backed separatists, as well as naval incidents, cyberwarfare, and political tensions. Following a Russian military build-up on the Russia–Ukraine border from late 2021, the conflict expanded significantly when Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022. Following the Euromaidan protests and a revolution resulting in the removal of pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014, pro-Russian unrest erupted in parts of Ukraine. Russian soldiers without insignia took control of strategic positions and infrastructure in the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, and seized the Crimean Parliament. Russia organized a widely criticised referendum, whose outcome was for Crimea to join Russia. This led to the annexation of Crimea. In April 2014, demonstrations by pro-Russian groups in the Donbas region of Ukraine escalated into a war between the Ukrainian military and Russian-backed separatists of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk republics. In August 2014, unmarked Russian military vehicles crossed the border into the Donetsk republic. An undeclared war began between Ukrainian forces on one side, and separatists intermingled with Russian troops on the other, although Russia attempted to hide its involvement. The war settled into a static conflict, with repeated failed attempts at a ceasefire. In 2015, the Minsk II agreements were signed by Russia and Ukraine, but a number of disputes prevented them being fully implemented. By 2019, 7% of Ukraine was classified by the Ukrainian government as temporarily occupied territories. In 2021 and early 2022, there was a major Russian military build-up around Ukraine’s borders. NATO accused Russia of planning an invasion, which it denied. Russian President Vladimir Putin criticized the enlargement of NATO as a threat to his country and demanded Ukraine be barred from ever joining the military alliance. He also expressed Russian irredentist views, questioned Ukraine’s right to exist, and stated wrongfully that Ukraine was created by Soviet Russia. On 21 February 2022, Russia officially recognised the two self-proclaimed separatist states in the Donbas, and openly sent troops into the territories. Three days later, Russia invaded Ukraine. Much of the international community has condemned Russia for its actions in post-revolutionary Ukraine, accusing it of breaking international law and violating Ukrainian sovereignty. Many countries implemented economic sanctions against Russia, Russian individuals, or companies, especially after the 2022 invasion.
