95% of legacy media reporting on the Ukraine crisis has been complete fabrication.
And the lies continue. Just as they lied to New Zealanders about COVID, they are continuing their deceptive practises through the Ukraine crisis.
This morning’s headlines in state-subsidized legacy media outlets NZHerald and Stuff would have you believe the Russian withdrawal from the small settlement of Lyman (or Liman) was somehow another ‘major’ victory for Ukraine.
It is not.
DTNZ reported yesterday that 500 Russian soldiers had held out against a force of at least 6,000 Ukrainians for between 2 and 3 weeks in the strategically unimportant town of Liman.
Despite the extraordinary feat, geopolitical and military experts agree the town had no strategic importance and prudent military doctrine dictated that Russia would be wiser to withdraw.
It appears Ukraine military doctrine is motivated more by making daily news headlines, at whatever cost, to fool western audiences into believing they have momentum, rather than based on any strategic or military need, experts say:
‘Liman is a small place of little strategic importance. It as become for Ukraine a kind of obsession to capture this place in order for it to appear to maintain its offensive in the remaining few days before the autumn rains close in and before the big Russian reinforcements arrive.
The result is that Ukraine has apparently stripped other parts of its front line…in order to try and capture Liman which apparently has been ordered ‘at any cost’.
The cost of all of this [the capture of Liman] is disproportionate to the objective, a small largely deserted town in Northern Donetsk, one that I am sure is of little strategic significance.’
