Foreign Volunteers Blamed For Missile Strike That Killed 35 at Ukrainian Training Facility

British volunteers have been blamed for a missile strike that killed 35 people at a Ukrainian training facility because their phone signals gave away the base’s location.

Whoops.

“Between 12 to 14 British phone numbers starting with the +44 national dialling code were visible to surveillance equipment a short time before the Russian missile strike on the Yavoriv training facility in western Ukraine on the 13th of March,” reports Breitbart.

“Mercenaries who were contracted by the Wagner Group, a military company linked to Moscow, may have been operating nearby at the time of the strike, according to reports, and specialists fear they would have been able to pick up, locate, and target a concentrated group of British mobile phone signals and pass the information to Russian forces.”

The story once again highlights the danger of badly trained foreign volunteers traveling to the front lines of a hot war.

Following President Zelensky’s call for foreign fighters to join the cause, the legacy media in the west breathlessly amplified the moral crusade of Brits and Americans making perilous journeys in the name of ‘supporting Ukraine’.

The Biden White House also held a meeting with TikTok influencers, telling them to bolster NATO propaganda narratives and encourage their young audience to do their bit to ‘support Ukraine’.

Members of the predominantly leftist Reddit community also egged each other on to volunteer to fight in Ukraine despite their military experience extending to obsessively playing Call of Duty.

Their desire to virtue signal about supporting Ukraine by posting information that gave away the location of bases and training facilities also led to such sites being targeted and bombed by Russian forces.

Numerous reports have now emerged of volunteers being treated like “cannon fodder,” having their passports ripped up and sent to the front lines while being told they won’t be able to go home until the war is over.

36-year-old British man Ben Spann, who had no military experience, left his wife and children and traveled to Ukraine without their knowledge to fight but told Sky News he soon left after realizing he was facing a “suicide mission.”

Spann said he was kept in a safe house with no beds or running water for 5 days and had a gun pointed at his head by a Ukrainian SWAT team.

Upon returning to the UK, Spann said those without military experience “can be more of a burden” to actual fighters and that in hindsight he had traveled there to boost his own “ego.”

There are also reports that such individuals are being slaughtered by the Russian bombardment of towns and cities.

Was it really worth it for the Instagram dopamine war selfie?

Video: Belarusian Tennis Star Calls Out Sports Reporters For “Dragging Players Into” Ukraine Conflict Talk

“I don’t know what’s the goal here that it’s continuously brought up.”

Belarusian tennis star Victoria Azarenka has called out sports reporters for continually asking players questions about the Russia/Ukraine conflict, noting “I don’t know what you guys want us to do about it.”

Azarenka was speaking during a press conference after a recent match at the Australian open, when she lost patience with journalists asking question after question about pro-Russia protests by some at the event, and accused the reporters of continuously “dragging players into” political issues.

“I don’t know what you guys want us to do about it,” Azarenka asserted, adding “Like talk about it? I don’t know what’s the goal here that it’s continuously brought up.”

The former world number one continued, “These incidents that, in my opinion, have nothing to do with players, but somehow you keep dragging players into it. So what’s the goal here?”

“I think you should ask yourself that question, not me,” she sternly added.

Azarenka also stated that whatever she says will be twisted by the reporters to suit their own narrative anyway, so why should she bother.

“Whatever the answer I’m going to give it to you right now, it’s going to be turned whichever way you want to turn it to,” the tennis star urged, adding “So does it bother me? What bothers me is there’s real things that’s going on in the world. And I don’t know. Are you a politician? Are you? Are you covering politics?” she rhetorically asked the sports reporter.

“I’m an athlete,” Azarenka further proclaimed, adding “and you’re asking me about things that maybe somebody says are in my control, but I don’t believe that. So I don’t know what you want me to answer. And if it’s a provocative question, then, you know, you can spin the story however you want.”

“Obviously it’s a topic you want to continue to bring up and up and up again,” Azarenka charged, telling the reporters “I don’t know what you want me to say.”

Watch:

Azarenka is correct, there is a sustained effort by reporters, even non-politics reporters to involve sports personalities in narratives centred around the ‘current thing’ they obsessively use to sell newspapers and garner clicks.

Novak Djokovic has been repeatedly subject to such treatment, with tennis officials also guilty of dragging politics into the sport.

    Former UK Defense Minister Says NATO May Need To Send Ground Forces To Ukraine

    Published

    The “domino theory” was once used to great effect in order to manipulate the American public into supporting the Vietnam War, but will the same narrative work to get the west to support World War III with Russia? 

    Former UK Defense Minister Sir Gerald Howarth seems to think so as he uses this exact claim to justify NATO boots on the ground in Ukraine. 

    It should be noted that a large percentage of the American populace and most of Europe have no interest whatsoever in engaging with Russia and possibly its allies in all out war, but the establishment appears intent on forcing the issue anyway.  The delivery of NATO tanks and the possibility of longer range missiles will no doubt trigger a wider response from Russia, which will then be used by NATO as a reason to escalate further. 

    At the very least, Howarth does admit what many in the alternative media have been saying for some time – That Ukraine’s efforts have ground to a halt without further support from NATO troops.  The deliveries of money and weapons are nothing more than a stop-gap; wars are won by men. 

    The former minister suggests that Ukraine is essentially too big to fail and that NATO cannot allow Russia to prevail in the region, otherwise they will be emboldened to strike other nearby nations.  There is zero evidence to support this argument, but it is clear that NATO talking heads are desperate to drum up some kind of public fervor. 

    Are western citizens willing to fight and die for Ukraine?  It’s highly unlikely.
