Fronting for hegemon USA-dominated NATO, Amnesty International (AI) cares more about serving the interests of its funders than championing human rights.
In a propaganda report released on Monday, AI turned truth on its head — again — by falsely accusing Russia of launching “indiscriminate attacks in Kharkov, Ukraine (sic).”
A litany of bald-faced Big Lies followed, falsely saying:
Since February, Russian forces “shelled (Kharkov) residential neighborhoods almost daily (sic), killing and injuring hundreds of civilians (sic), and causing wholesale destruction (sic), often using widely banned cluster munitions (sic).”
AI failed to provide corroborating evidence of its above claims because there is none.
The organization willfully and maliciously lied in service to its US/Western paymasters.
Unlike US-dominated NATO and Nazi-infested Ukraine, Russia complies with the rule of law.
No Russian forces “have been pushed back” by Ukraine’s military from Kiev, Kharkov or anywhere else.
AI’s fake news report is based on infowar propaganda rubbish supplied by US/Western and Nazified Ukraine’s sources — made up stuff with no credibility.
Defying reality, the organization falsely accused Russia of killing and injuring over 1,800 Kharkov civilians during the first two months of its SMO (sic).
It lied claiming that Russia destroyed over 600 Kharkov area residential buildings (sic).
Its alleged “documented (evidence of) cluster munitions strikes (by Russia in Kharkov area) neighborhoods” doesn’t exist.
The same goes for falsely claiming that Russia “continue(s) use of inaccurate explosive weapons in populated civilian areas…causing large numbers of civilian casualties (sic).”
From day-one of its SMO, Russian forces never “met stiff Ukrainian resistance,” as AI falsely claimed.
Nor did they launch “barrage after barrage (of attacks against) men, women and children…kill(ing)
and injur(ing) (them) in their homes and streets, in playgrounds and cemeteries, while queueing for humanitarian aid or shopping for food (sic).”
Throughout its propaganda report, AI falsely accused Russia of
crimes of war, against humanity and related atrocities committed by Ukrainian Nazi thugs, likeminded mercenaries and regime conscript troops, including their use of cluster and other banned weapons — as orchestrated and directed by the Pentagon and CIA.
Kiev troops “str(uck) places where people were queuing for humanitarian aid,” not Russia.
“Older people were killed and injured outside their homes” by Nazified thugs and mercenaries, not Russian forces.
“Cluster bomb attack(s) on residential neighborhoods,” a cemetery and elsewhere in Ukraine and Donbass were carried out by Nazified regime.
The same reality applies to use of “land mines” — laid by Kiev to kill Russians and civilians, the latter casualties to be falsely blamed on Moscow.
No Russian “indiscriminate attacks” occurred anywhere in Ukraine or Donbass, no targeting of civilians to “kill and maim” them.
Near the end of its report, AI admitted what should have been top-featured, saying:
“Ukrainian forces often operated from residential neighborhoods, launching strikes from them and attracting Russian fire” — only at military targets, no others, AI failed to explain, adding:
“Such practices endangered civilians in the areas and violated international humanitarian law, in particular the obligation to avoid, to the extent feasible, locating military objectives within or near densely populated areas.”
“Yet it is important to emphasize that these Ukrainian violations in no way justified the indiscriminate strikes repeatedly launched against these neighborhoods by Russian forces (sic).”
Like US/Western MSM state-approved propaganda, AI failed to explain that Russian forces struck military targets alone with precision weapons and munitions.
At no time were attacks launched on civilians or nonmilitary related infrastructure.
That’s why Russia’s SMO is in its fourth month.
If its forces used US/NATO terror-bombing tactics, its SMO most likely would have been successfully concluded in a few weeks.
Russia launched its SMO in self-defense — according to Article 51 of the UN Charter — after spending years of good faith diplomacy in vain to halt Kiev’s aggression on Donbass since April 2014, as directed by its US master.
It was at a time when over 100,000 US-controlled Ukrainian troops were mobilized in preparation to invade Donetsk, Lugansk, and the Russian Republic of Crimea.
Moscow acted to prevent what could have been disastrous — what likely would have caused mass-slaughter of civilians and vast destruction had invasion occurred.
AI ignored all of the above.
Noting that Russia and Ukraine are parties to the Geneva Conventions and their Additional Protocol 1, AI failed to explain that Russia complies with its international law obligations.
In stark contrast, the empire of lies, its NATO vassals and Nazi-infested Ukraine operate exclusively by their own rules — in defiance of the rule of law.
Calling for “justice and accountability,” AI failed to point fingers where they belong.
It falsely blamed Moscow for hegemon USA’s orchestrated and directed criminality by Ukraine internally, as well as cross border against Donbass and Russian residential areas.
