To bury its dead, Ukraine is having to dig up victims of past wars
In exhuming the bodies, the country also brings its past to the surface

The numbers of war dead are a secret in Ukraine, but it is possible to get an impression of the scale by visiting the rapidly expanding military cemeteries that feature in every town and city. At the Lychakiv cemetery, says Oleksandr Dmytriv, its director, Mr Chekovksy was the 507th to be buried since the invasion began on February 24th, 2022. At first the dead were buried in another part of the cemetery, but space quickly ran out, so the cemetery turned instead to a grassy slope where a war memorial had been built in the 1970s, while Ukraine was still part of the Soviet Union. As the rows of graves marched up the hill, the gravediggers unexpectedly found skeletons.
History marches ever on and, sighs Inna Zolotar, a tour guide in Lviv, “it is also a weapon.” As for Lychakiv, she says it “reflects our complicated memory” including the things “we don’t know how to talk about.”

Not sure how many are subscribed to this young lady's channel but it is so very interesting. I have been watching for about a year and I always learn something new in her videos.

She travels China on her moped/motorbike deep into the rural areas. The scenery is breathtaking but it also dispels a lot of the silly propaganda in the west about what life is like in China. But too many in the west refuse to break free from their programming. It's very educational especially for those of us who have never been to China. Only makes me want to go even more.


On telling a lie you must repeat it, telling further lies as questions are asked. For politicians there is no way out but to keep lying... until finally exposed and removed from office in humiliation.

The question is no longer whether the Ukrainian regime will win against Russia. The question now is how long the western powers can sustain it until it loses. And the secondary question related to the latter is how will these powers react when their narratives about this conflict totally collapse.

Two of the big political beasts of the western world have decided to communicate a factual analysis concerning the origin of the Ukraine war. Donald Trump in the USA and nigel Farage in the UK are both relating that the West was responsible for goading Russia into this conflict by insisting Ukraine will join NATO.

The pressure on Russia was unrelenting by the West, driving Russia into the only viable course of action left to it if it wished to ...

Putin lays wreath at Tomb of Unknown Soldier on Day of Remembrance and Sorrow

The traditional ceremony to pay homage to the Soviet military who perished during the Great Patriotic War that Russia fought against Nazi Germany in 1941-1945 took place in the Alexander Garden

MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier on the Day of Remembrance and Sorrow, the anniversary of the start of the Great Patriotic War.

The traditional ceremony to pay homage to the Soviet military who perished during the Great Patriotic War that Russia fought against Nazi Germany in 1941-1945 took place in the Alexander Garden.

Nazi Germany attacked the Soviet Union in the small hours of June 22, 1941, without a declaration of war. Thousands of Red Army military and civilians were killed on the very first day of the war, and a total of 1,200 planes, tanks, and artillery weapons were destroyed.
