    Interesting backstory to the American funded biolabs:



    What's more interesting is the backstory to Ukraine in the leadup to the Russian invasion.

    First off the "invaded a sovereign country" narrative sounds more and more like horse sh*t when you consider the fact that the Zelensky government went out of their way to ban "pro-Russian" political parties (aka - any political party that does NOT agree to WEF style globalism), democratically dis-enfranchising almost 1/3 of the country, particularly (but not limited to) ethnic Russians in Southern and Eastern Ukraine.

    Viktor Medvedchuk is an important figure, who while was definitely pro-Russian (and a good friend of Putin) - still had more popular support and potentially could have unseated Zelensky.

    A year BEFORE the Russian invasion, Medvedchuk's political party was polling higher than Zelensky's... so Zelensky sanctioned his party.

    A comparable example would be the Trudeau government banning the Bloc Quebecois from fundraising (say by ordering all bank accounts linked to the BQ being frozen).

    The bigger problem is that since 2014, Ukraine had failed to secure peace in the Donbass region which, by the sounds of it are a consequence of corruption and incompetence of the Zelenksy government (especially by integrating psychotic radical neo-Nazi movements into their military).

    A consequence of the conflict is very large numbers of civilian casualties, primarily among the Russian speaking population.

    Putin's position seems to be that the civilian casualties among the Russian speaking population of the region, combined with corruption and outright anti-democratic measures taken by Zelensky, along with both Ukraine's aspirations to join NATO and NATO's not so subtle nudging of Ukraine.

    All of this presented a very real security threat to Russia which the Russians (not just Putin) seem well aware as a reasonable justification for the invasion.

    TLDR: There are no good guys in Ukraine, not from a Western perspective.

    Zelensky and Putin are both thugs and no good will come from Western involvement in the conflict.

    What's worse is it seems as if important people in the West (such as the Biden family) have a LOT of hidden dirt in Ukraine...

    So the whole the "invaded a sovereign country" propaganda narrative might actually be a codeword for: "the Zelensky government is hiding something very important for the globalists."

    Zelensky is basically butt buddies with Trudeau. They're cut from the same cloth.

    Zelenski was about to launch a massive attack against the autonomous regions (backed by the west) in an attempt to gain final control. Apparently azov were promised land that they “liberated” from the people living there. That’s why russia invaded.

    Crimea was part of Russia since the 1700's. It was taken from the Turks.

    Don't know why Ukraine is so butthurt about that.

    Actually, was only a Turkish (Ottoman) vassal, not their land for real.

    "The Crimean Khanate was one of the successor states of the Golden Horde. In 1475, it entered into an alliance with the Ottoman Empire which gradually evolved into a vassalage. The Ottoman tutelage (or protectorate) over the Crimean Khanate lasted for exactly 300 years (1475-1774)." ttps://shc.stanford.edu/events/ottoman-empire-and-crimean-khanate-symbiotic-alliance-or-veiled-rivalry
    Eventually, the Russian Empire got tired of their raids and when they had sufficient power, they canceled those buggers. Good riddance, because the Tatars trade was a constant large supply of young female Christian sex slaves for the Constantinople slave markets.

    Ten Dead After Gunman Livestreams Mass Shooting At Buffalo Supermarket

    Update (1849ET): Two law enforcement officials told AP the gunman had been identified as 18yo Payton Gendron. One of the officials said the FBI is questioning the suspect.

    Update (1832ET): During a press conference, Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia said 13 people were shot, and ten people died in a "racially motivated" mass shooting.

    Gramaglia said that an 18yo white shooter drove from "hours away," equipped with military gear, and opened fire in a Tops Friendly Markets on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo.

    The U.S. attorney for the Western District of New York said the mass shooting is being investigated as a hate crime. The FBI is also investigating the incident as an act of racially-motivated violent extremism.

    AP reports at least ten people died after a gunman opened fire at Buffalo, New York, supermarket.

    A gunman dressed in a military uniform reportedly opened fire in the parking lot and inside the Tops Friendly Supermarket at 1275 Jefferson Avenue.

    Police told NBC New York the gunman had military-style body armor and two rifles.

    The Daily Mail notes the gunman live-streamed the shooting. This is an unconfirmed screenshot of the video.

    NBC points out the supermarket is situated in a "predominately Black neighborhood, about 3 miles north of downtown Buffalo. The surrounding area is primarily residential, with a Family Dollar store and fire station near the store."

    Local news WIVB's Kelsey Anderson says "15 Peacemakers" have arrived on the scene, "along with other organizations to keep the peace."

    New York State Governor Kathy Hochul tweeted that she's "monitoring the shooting at a grocery store in Buffalo."
