Eye-Witness Report from Donbass: How the War Looks From the Russian Side

By Sonja Van den Ende

Only when you have lived through a generation being called “conspiracy theorists” because they proclaimed that western governments and their uber-wealthy were keeping track of all their citizens, and then later, that claim turned out to be more than true as we now live in a horrendous state of Pentagon derived surveillance capitalism, and governments tracking citizens from Fusion Centers; or that wild conspiracy theories once proclaimed that the Nazi’s were financed by Jews, as they are today in Ukraine, can you realize the horror of war: the 1% is waging war at all times, on everyone, everywhere, and the 1% is composed of Jewish-christians, aka Zionists who want you dead.

A world where timid violin players like Elijah McClain are stomped and brutalized until they die–only then can we see that there is indeed conspiracy at every corner to deny such facts. To paint those who eradicate bio-weapons at their borders as Nazi’s is a ridiculous inversion of “truth,” made only more strange by the fact that in the age of internet, such inconvenient facts cannot be contained–that your own silence of actual attrocities guarantees you a place at such a table is a starving fact.

The Maidan “color revolution” was undertaken for the benefit of Western countries. My home country, the Netherlands, closed several poultry companies immediately after the coup and sponsored a large poultry company in the Ukraine.

So, it is then when we look at war from a different angle–and even from a different country, or perspective. Follow along as one western reporter documents the war from the Russian perspective, and open your eyes to the lies that are being told by those who will do ANYTHING to keep the world in a perpetual state of war.

Eye-Witness Report from Donbass: How the War Looks From the Russian Side

[Following in the tradition of the late Wilfred Burchett (1911-1983), an Australian who reported on the Korean and Vietnam Wars from the communist side, this article continues CAM’s reporting on the “other side” of the war in Ukraine, the side that is not presented in western media. Readers can balance this article with the pro-Ukrainian government stories we are fed every day and try to discern the truth for themselves.—Editors]

As the war in Ukraine rages on, I visited the republics of Donetsk and Luhansk as an embedded reporter with the Russian army.

Both of the republics are the trigger of the current conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin declared their independence on February 24, 2022, something a lot of people were waiting for since the CIA backed coup in Ukraine of February 2014. That coup had resulted in the ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and new laws forcing the Ukrainian language on Russian-speaking residents. Luhansk and Donetsk consequently voted on their independence and Ukraine attacked them, precipitating the war.

European support for the so-called Maidan coup was considerable: the Dutch MP Hans van Baalen from the ruling Dutch VVD party (Mark Rutte), for example, was at the protests that helped trigger the coup, as was the former Prime Minister of Belgium Guy Verhofstadt. Both were seen cheering on the crowds, surrounded by right-extremists on the stage, shouting “democracy.”

War is Hell

William Tecumseh Sherman


War isn’t Hell. War is war, and Hell is Hell. And of the two, war is a lot worse.
