war in Ukraine one month later

war in Ukraine one month later

It’s now almost a month since Russia invaded Ukraine and the news is coming in and the propaganda is coming out. This prevents us from making a balanced opinion.

In every war there is a reason. The reason must be legitimate. For example in the 2nd world war it was to liberate and drive out the Nazis. A villain is presented and this justifies a military intervention.

For Ukraine it is a bit like that. Russia justifies its special operation by liberating Ukraine from Nazis. (Only that). The Russian power continues to justify the attack of Ukraine by the presence of Nazi groups. The other argument is to protect the Russian inhabitants of Dombas who were ‘attacked by Ukrainians’. What is strange is that the other justification is not often heard. That of blocking the advance of NATO.

On the other side (USA and Europe) this war is presented as a will to integrate Ukraine to Russia. It is true that Ukrainian and Russian people are linked and that this thought could have been done. But is a war the right way to bring back the hearts?

So, on the one hand, there is a people who want to be independent and sovereign and who choose to turn to the West (Europe and NATO) and on the other hand, there is Russia which simply does not accept this choice. It must be said that the Ukrainian people are divided on the subject before 2014 it was pro Russian and after 2014 and became pro European. Since that day Ukraine is presented as having to make a choice. Either one or the other. Russia could have waited for the alternative to be made. The Ukrainians, tired of the corruption of president Zelensky, could have chosen a pro-Russian government…

Here is now the Russian answer on this war by the Russian ambassador.

If Ukraine wants to free Ukraine from Nazis, the journalist asks a very good question by saying that there are also Nazis in Switzerland and wonders if we should expect the Russian army to arrive in Switzerland.

Another interesting question: In January the Russians said that they would never invade Ukraine. Now how should we believe you.

Conclusion

If my opinion is only my opinion and I it is based only on my feeling, here it is. Putin has lost Ukraine. He thought that Russians and Ukrainians were the same people. But Ukrainians have also links with Poles. They are a people who for 30 years started to build themselves. Since 1990 Ukraine exists. To come out of communism is not easy. There was everything to build. But during this period an identity was built. On the one hand I understand Putin who does not want the Americans to settle on their border but I really have the impression that Putin does not accept the will of the Ukrainian people to freely dispose of their destiny. Invading Ukraine will only strengthen the patriotic feeling against the enemy which is Russia. In a conflict normally both sides are listened to and each one makes a step towards the other. We try to understand each other. With this war, each one reinforces its feelings and it becomes more and more difficult to reconcile the two sides. Traumatized by the bombs and this war, the Ukrainians will have hatred against Putin. Even if he succeeds in conquering the whole country, overthrowing the government and organizing a referendum for Ukraine to join the Russian Federation, I can’t imagine that the results will be credible. Even if he wins the war, Putin has lost Ukraine.

Facebook allows war posts urging violence against Russia

Facebook allows war posts urging violence against Russia

Censoship is not neutral. What is good what is bad  is subjective but Meta change radicaly its rules because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine we have temporarily made allowances for forms of political expression that would normally violate our rules like violent speech such as ‘death to the Russian invaders.’ We still won’t allow credible calls for violence against Russian civilians,” a Meta spokesperson said in a statement.

Such information is not believable  but it comes from the serious reuter agency.

Read Reuter message

It is really time to stop using facebook and close account there. It is time to start using alternative for neutral plateform like Fediverse alternative. We can disagree the russian invasion we can support Ukraine but pushing people for violence against specific people and civilians is not acceptable.

Many russian people do not agree with the ‘special operation’ in Ukraine.

Martinique control of the obligatory sanitary pass to the hospital

Martinique control of the obligatory sanitary pass to the hospital

Tension was high on the main site of the main hospital of Martinique this Friday afternoon 16th of october. At midday, two men were first questioned by the police. They are two stretcher bearers of the hospital of Mangot Vulcin. According to our information, one of them tried to enter the establishment without presenting his health pass to the agents in charge of the control.

The gendarmes who asked him to obey were taken to task. An incident justifying the double arrestation.

The hours that followed consisted of a face-to-face confrontation between police officers on one side and trade unionists and other demonstrators on the other. During long hours, the latter demanded the release of the two arrested, preventing two police vans from leaving the site. Nevertheless, according to police sources, the two defendants had already been discreetly exfiltrated from the hospital.

At the same time, the management of the hospital briefly received a delegation of the inter-union to discuss these arrests.
The gendarmes, for their part, were able to get out of this tense confrontation by moving the barricades set up by the demonstrators and by using tear gas.

A third man was arrested following these incidents, this time by the police. The three defendants are now in custody at the Fort-de-France police station.

The arrival of mobile guards as reinforcements just before 4pm added further tension. Finally, it was around 4:20 pm that the police and gendarmes left the hospital. On the side of the police force, four gendarmes were injured and some equipment destroyed. Complaints will be filed for the violence and damage, warns the General Command of the Gendarmerie of Martinique.
