“One less traitor”: Zelensky oversees campaign of assassination, kidnapping and torture of political opposition, by Max Blumenthal and Esha Krishnaswamy

Ukrainians commit atrocities? That’s crazy talk. Except it looks like they do indeed, instigated by Zelensky. From Max Blumenthal and Esha Kirshnaswamy at thegrayzone.com:

While claiming to defend democracy, Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky has outlawed his opposition, ordered his rivals’ arrest, and presided over the disappearance and assassination of dissidents across the country.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has framed his country’s war against Russia as a battle for democracy itself. In a carefully choreographed address to US Congress on March 16, Zelensky stated, “Right now, the destiny of our country is being decided. The destiny of our people, whether Ukrainians will be free, whether they will be able to preserve their democracy.”

US corporate media has responded by showering Zelensky with fawning press, driving a campaign for his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize and inspiring a flamboyant musical tribute to himself and the Ukrainian military during the 2022 Grammy awards ceremony on April 3.
