    Zelensky admitted that it's the Ukraines shelling power plant. The Russians have been in there since March!

    Zelensky literally admitted they are shelling the power plant because there are Russian troops locate in it.
    Even Ukraine propaganda couldn't agree on what to say, I think Zelensky was confusing himself too.
    How could Russian target the plant when at the same time using it as cover. His statement didn't make any sense.

    What do you call it when the country doing the false flag accuses its enemy of false flag? And I'm not talking about Ukraine. NATO readying the troops I see. And we're all supposed to nod and agree? When America agrees to sit at the negotiation table, then talk to us about false flags. Did the state department force you guys to produce this because of your previous video exposing the Ukrainian corruption in weapons delivery?

    I suppose it's not possible to take a russian nuclear power plant? If Ukraine is not on a level playing field how can they win?

    Wow how do you feel knowing you lying to the whole world just for Ukraine to look good 😂😂😂 that’s karma from the 8 years of shelling

    This just in: "The Japanese dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a false flag operation to end WWII." We're still looking in to 9/11.
  • Question - Really where is America and so called Nato ?
    Ans - 1. Europe find the truth of American politics so they are mumb now
    2. American politicians selling ammunition to Taiwan.
    Simple it is to understand

    Ukraine is shelling the unclear plant, because Russia cut off the power supply line to Ukraine and rerouted the power to Crimea and Russia occupied areas.

    So now if we decide there's no end in sight and it's time to extract ourselves from the situation.... They'll say were abandoning them.
