Abby Martin from Russia Today explains her own personal views on the Ukraine situation

Abby Martin is an anchor on the Kremlin funded television network Russia Today who decided to provide her own opinion after the end of the 'Breaking the Set' segment.

“Before we wrap up the show, I wanted to say something from my heart about the ongoing political crisis in Ukraine and Russia’s military occupation of Crimea. Just because I work here for RT doesn’t mean I don’t have editorial independence, and I can’t stress enough how strongly I am against any state intervention in a sovereign nation’s affairs. 
What Russia did is wrong. I admittedly don’t know as much as I should about Ukraine’s history or the cultural dynamics of the region, but what I do know is that military intervention is never the answer. I will not sit here and apologize or defend military aggression. Furthermore, the coverage I’ve seen of Ukraine has been truly disappointing from all sides of the media spectrum and rife with disinformation. 
Above all, my heart goes out to the Ukrainian people, who are now wedged as pawns in the middle of a global power chess game — they’re the real losers here. All we can do now is hope for a peaceful outcome to a terrible situation, and prevent another full-blown cold war between multiple super powers. Until then, I’ll keep telling the truth as I see it.”



In response to Abby Martin's announcement, RT issued a statement to several media outlets that stated: "Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn't beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air. This is the case with Abby's commentary on the Ukraine. We respect her views, and the views of all our journalists, presenters and program hosts, and there will be absolutely no reprimands made against Ms. Martin."

RT is carried by 22 satellites and over 230 operators, which allows some 644 million people to watch the channel in more than 100 countries world wide. In 2013 RT became the first TV news channel in history to reach 1 billion views on YouTube.

From what I have seen in relation to this situation in the Ukraine, I would have to agree with what Abby Martin said in relation to the coverage. That it has been disappointing from all sides of the media spectrum and rife with disinformation. It's the perfect situation that shows us that finding the real truth is not always that easy. When certain information is reported, how can we believe it no matter who the source is that is reporting that information?

Below is some additional info I have come across lately.

This was a very recent situation that developed. UN Secretary General Robert Serry just reported that armed men approached him in Simferopol, Crimea, and asked him to come with them to the airport. He refused. For a period of time Robert Serry and the UN envoy were blockaded inside a coffee shop but eventually Robert Serry decided to leave and head to the airport by car. 

These two sources, including RT, claim that Kiev Snipers were hired by Maidan leaders which shot at the protesters in and police in Keiv.

“Martin’s denunciation of Russia for “invading” Ukraine is based on Western propaganda that Russia sent 16,000 troops to occupy Crimea. The fact of the matter is that those 16,000 Russian troops have been in Crimea since the 1990s. Under the Russian-Ukrainian agreement, Russia has the right to base 25,000 troops in Crimea.”  - http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article37856.htm

The US state department has released a list of ten false claims ('President Putin's Fiction') that Putin has made. This is highly unusual for the State Department, which typically does not issue statements in public that a foreign leader is being untruthful.

"MSNBC host Rachel Maddow charged Monday that the George W. Bush administration's Middle East policy has steered America's current security policy and response to global crises — including the one in Ukraine.

Feasible or factual? A strange article for Veterans Today to post, which involves a whole lot of ET/UFO based info around Russia's situation with the Ukraine and the relation to space wars.

Edyar Cayce predicted something very interesting. “Through Russia,“ Cayce said, "comes the hope of the world. Not in respect to what is sometimes termed Communism or Bolshevism - no! But freedom - freedom! That each man will live for his fellow man. The principle has been born there. It will take years for it to be crystallized; yet out of Russia comes again the hope of the world."

Thank you Laron for this video.

That goes to show whose media is more open and allowing of discussion. You would never see that on Fox or MSNBC or any of the controlled media by GUS.

Edward Cayce it appears is going to be correct.

The problem is she is reporting that Russia invaded Ukraine -- which they did not. It's difficult to say who is telling the truth anymore. I believe Abby Martin has high integrity, but may have fallen victim to US media disinformation. See: http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/03/05/propaganda-rules-news-paul-craig-roberts/

Kat, Steve left this comment over on this article I posted in relation to the invasion question,
http://www.transients.info/2014/03/as-tensions-build-us-facing-zero.html?showComment=1394133326503

"Reason why it called invasion:
1) Russian increase troops on the ground without any previous agreement.
2) Russian troops blocking Ukrainian troops, ships, military airport. Ukrainian avoiding direct conflict using weapons.
3) Russian commander deliver an ultimatum to surrender their weapons and blocks deliver of supplies (water, food etc.).
4) Russian troops without any identification to which army they belong to.
5) Russian troops should be only on the territory, which is signed in agreement (naval base) not all over the Crimea."

Steve said...

Thank you Laron for understanding. I believe anyone has right for to spread information in any conflict, if any side(Russia) suppressing infomation something wrong . See link below which showing Ukrainian troops without any weapon protecting their bases in Crimea to avoid any provocation.

“Since World War II – and extending well into the Twenty-first Century – the United States has invaded or otherwise intervened in so many countries that it would be challenging to compile a complete list. (…) So, what is one to make of Secretary of State John Kerry’s pronouncement that Russia’s military intervention in the Crimea section of Ukraine – at the behest of the country’s deposed president – is a violation of international law that the United States would never countenance?”

Laron, thanks for the clarification, but now I cannot seem to get a handle on what the real story is - even when I hear both sides. And I think that's the point of disinformation. Thanks for covering this.

Laron said...

Kat, if someone asked me my opinion on this, I could not give them a helpful answer as I feel the same. (This is also not my area of expertise) So what I would base my answer on would be what has gone on during the past and the actions these countries have taken in similar situations, plus their motivations for doing so.

What will these world powers gain from the intentions they have now?

Does the 'cabal' or whatever name is given to those that control the powers that be, have a part in this?

In the end, if this turns bad, people are going to be fighting themselves from a spiritual perspective.Someone once said to me that they are a citizen of the universe, not the country they were from.

I think that part of my intention of placing all this info on the blog here around the situation was to show that there are two sides to this story and it's very unclear who is wrong and who is right.

(The primary reason I'm covering this is because it relates strongly to prophecy/prediction from many sources within a series of predicted events, if it turns into a war.The timing of it now is uncanny in relation to many other events occurring now.)

A friend of mine posted a YouTube video on her facebook page the other day. It has a Ukrainian female talking about the situation there and asking for help, this was based weeks ago. It has over seven million views and the 'top' comments are those from people saying it's US propaganda.

Over time we may find some more truths as it all develops.

Kat Bayer said...

Oh man, it's tiring to think about this nonsense. I propose we tap into the collective conscious and inject some love juice!

Linda said...

That's the way Kat.

Laron said...

Love juice, yeah, something like that! Sounds good.

The truth is we ( the people)have nothing to do with any of this.. TPTB are trying to get in their last war. We need to prepare for the aftermath and prepare to rebuild. We need to think outside of this. What can we do personally and locally to help others and create a community. What can we produce that is a betterment for fellow humans. The war will come but that is not the greater concern as it is just a mask covering the greater shocks to the populace that are to come.TPTB have already lost and this is their death throes. We just have to watch out and not be collateral from the falling corpse hitting us.

Laron said...

I would say that line of thinking would have a strong influence from all the data coming out of the webbot which is likely quite accurate.
