  1. On May 01, 2022, 40 foreign and 20 Russian journalists visited Berdyansk. Foreign TV presenters represented France, China, India, Vietnam and a number of other countries.
    Representatives of the mass media talked with Acting Mayor Alexander Saulenko. They asked him questions about the situation in the city and the prospects of Berdyansk. The press conference was held in the open air in front of the Registry Office.
    Namely, in this place, because immediately after the briefing, the journalists attended the wedding ceremony. As we have already reported, today in Berdyansk 6 couples tied the knot at once. And hardly anyone else can boast that he had so many journalists at his wedding. So, today's wedding at the Berdyansk registry Office was doubly special

  2. They allow only people who express the opinion of the Zelensky government to the microphone. Publishing the point of view of only one of the parties to the conflict is unworthy of serious journalists.

  3. DW is funny. You don't mention the several other risking their lives on the groud to report the actual incident…. Patrick Lancaster and Co. They are those that deserve to be mentioned. You keep laying bare your hypocrisy and bias journalism.

  4. Eine sehr vitale Illustration über die Ursachen der Ereignisse in der Ukraine:
    Stellen Sie sich vor, Sie leben in Ihrem Haus und sehen am Montag einen Nachbarn aus einem anderen Haus, der Sie laut schimpft, springt und Beleidigungen schreit, obwohl Sie ihm nichts getan haben und sogar das Gas billiger verkauft haben. Er schreit, dass Sie getötet werden müssen. Am Dienstag geht dieser Nachbar und ruft dich laut auf, dich zu töten und schreit, dass die Sprache, die alle Nachbarn vor diesem Dienstag kommuniziert haben, schlecht ist und es notwendig ist, sie auszurotten, und er hat bereits eine Maschine in seinen Händen. Am Mittwoch wiederholt sich alles wie am Dienstag, aber Sie sehen bereits verbrannte Leichen von denen, die ihren Nachbarn nicht unterstützten (eine Analogie zu Odessa im Mai 2014) und Sie normalerweise behandelten. Hinter dem Nachbarn stehen bereits Leute, die ihm Kekse mitgebracht haben (eine Analogie zu Victoria Nulland). Am Donnerstag ziehen einige Nachbarn, nachdem sie verstanden haben, worauf es ankommt, in Ihr Haus (die Krim) um, und einige haben keine Zeit (Donbass). Der Nachbar droht Ihnen bereits direkt wegen der Umsiedlung anderer, und diejenigen, die den Nachbarn mit Keksen gefüttert haben, müssen die Nachbarn zurückgeben, trotz der Tatsache, dass sie selbst eine solche Entscheidung getroffen haben und nicht zurück wollen. Am Freitag ist der ganze Hof mit Leichen von denen übersät, die es nicht geschafft haben, zu Ihnen zu ziehen, und Ihr Nachbar ist nicht mehr allein mit einem Maschinengewehr in der Hand, hinter den Maschinengewehren sind diejenigen, die ihm diese Maschinengewehre gegeben haben. Der Nachbar schreit bereits, dass jeder, der ihn nicht unterstützt und dich normalerweise behandelt, den Rest seines Lebens in Kellern leben wird oder getötet wird (es ist Poroschenkos Rede über die Bewohner von Donjass). Diejenigen, die Ihren Nachbarn mit kostenlosen Automaten versorgen, unterstützen ihn sehr und schreien und beleidigen Sie auch. Am Samstag sagt ein Nachbar bereits laut, dass er eine Waffe in seinem Haus platzieren will, aus der man Ihr Haus direkt zerstören kann, und bittet diejenigen, die ihm eine Maschine gegeben haben, ihm eine Atomwaffe zu geben und seinen nuklearen Status zu überdenken. Diejenigen, die Ihren Nachbarn nicht verurteilen und wahrscheinlich im Prinzip schon darüber nachdenken, wie viele Atomwaffen und Langstreckenwaffen sie im Nachbarhaus platzieren können.
    Frage: Werden Sie bis Montag leben und was werden Sie tun?
    P / S Heute genau 8 Jahre Tragödie in Odessa.
    Am 2. Mai 2014 wurden während der Proteste in Odessa die ukrainischen Nationalisten im Gewerkschaftshaus der Gegner des neuen ukrainischen Regimes lebendig verbrannt, 42 Menschen wurden lebendig verbrannt, da sie nicht veröffentlicht wurden, und diejenigen, die aus dem Fenster sprangen, wurden mit Bits zu Tode geschlagen…

  5. Putin's intention of starting war with Ukraine is to conquer the whole of Europe.If the world does not stand up to the crazy leader of Russia, another world war will be the only option for the world.

  6. On May 9 , Putin will announce the restoration of the USSR. On the basis of the fact that the collapse of the USSR occurred in an illegal, unconstitutional way.

  7. Putin is scared of journalists because they report the truth about their inhuman brutality against the Ukrainian people.

  8. The Russian army target independent journalists who don't tow the Russian line, check coverage of sky journalists being targeted by Russian army snipers, Brent Reno, documentary filmmaker killed at a checkpoint in Irpen, Swiss journalist's press marked vehicle shot at by the Russian army.

  9. World War III Has Begun; How It Unfolds Depends on Us

    We think of the Russia-Ukraine war as a local conflict, but it is much more than that; it is a global war on multiple fronts. The war is not only a military conflict; it is also an economic war of attrition. With skyrocketing gas prices and shortage of staples, people all over the world are feeling the consequences of the war.

    This war is transforming the entire modus operandi of humanity. Since the dawn of time, we have been accustomed to living by the motto, “survival of the fittest.” By and large, the rule was that the strong determined the rules, and the rules were often abusive toward the weak. Now, it seems like a new mindset has set in: Wanting something and being strong enough to take it does not mean that the world will accept it.

    The war, therefore, is being fought on the inside no less, and perhaps more than on the outside. Our very makeup is changing from abusive to cooperative, from narcissistic to altruistic.

    It hurts, and it will not happen without a struggle, but it is irreversible. This is the path of our evolution toward the purpose of our creation—to encompass within us all of creation. To do that, we must come to care for it, just as a mother encompasses her child through her maternal love.

    The struggle to transition from our current uncaring and mean approach to all creations but ourselves, into wise and compassionate beings is called “the war of Gog and Magog” or Armageddon.

    Since the war is about our inner makeup, we can fight it within us. If we object to struggling with ourselves over who will rule—the ego or love—the physical reality will force us to choose love nonetheless. However, it will do so by hurting us in a very physical way.

    The war in Eastern Europe is nothing compared to what we might have to endure if we resist the process. The horrific descriptions of our sages and prophets hint at it, and we would not want to live through it.

    Alternatively, we can fight this war within us without firing a single bullet. The choice is in our hands. All we need is to continue in the same direction that nature is already leading us: toward connection. If we make an effort to care for one another, even though initially we don’t, then we are moving in the right direction. If we try to resolve conflicts not with guns or even legal battles, but by strengthening the care and friendship between us, then we are saving lives and sparing torments from countless people.

    In conclusion, let us try to rise above the hatred and see the human on the other side, who suffers too. Let us think that this war was given to us so we would think about each other more than we have so far. After all, were it not for this war, we would not notice one another. Now that it is here, we are no longer indifferent. Although our feelings our currently negative, now that we are aware of them, we can work on them together and turn them around. These are the wars of the Messiah who moshech [Hebrew: pulls] us out of the ego, and into mutual love..

  10. Ukraine is an excellent example for the whole of Europe how not to do it.
    Any country that allows the United States into its administration will sooner or later go to waste.
