Ukie doubleplusgooddoublethink

Oh this is too good, I have to show this to you!  Remember how I predicted that the Ukies would claim that in attack on Novoazovsk came from Russia?  I wrote: 
"After having completely denied that an successful Novorussian operation was taking place, the Ukies had to finally admit that the Novorussian Armed Forces (NAF) had reached Novoazovsk. But remember that the successful operation which got them there in the first place never happened. So they end up publishing a map with an almost completely surrounded Novorussia and a tiny isolated speck around Novoazovsk.  This begs the question: how did the NAF even get there? By air? Unlikely. By flying carpet or teleporters? Maybe not. And then the answer is obvious: through Russia of course! That is the politically correct interpretation"
One of the slimiest creeps in the Ukraine is a guy called "Savik Shuster" (real name: Ševelis Šusteris) who has a show called "Shuster Live" on Ukie TV.  If you understand Russian/Ukrainian I HIGHLY recommend that show (no, I did not say that I *like* it!) as it will give you a fantastic insight into the kind of delusional insanity the junta and the nationalist freaks live in.  Anyway, I was just watching the latest edition of Shuster Live (I was curious as to how these guys would present the events of the week to their public) and, sure enough, Shuster put up this map:

Ain't this *perfect*?!  Exactly as predicted: the entire week-long NAF counter-attack simply never happened.  It just a short trek from across the border and that is were the *Russian attack* (to use Shuster's words) came from.

But then, at the same time, the junta in Kiev is also simultaneously denying that Russia attacked, as they cannot get IMF money if they are at war (they will, of course).

So, the the Ukrainian people - Russia has attacked
To the Western politicians - Russia has attacked
but to the IMF - Russia has not attacked

Talk about doubleplusgooddoublethink!  Orwell would be proud.

In closing, please go over to Club Orlov and read his excellent piece "How can you tell whether Russia has invaded Ukraine?".  Great stuff from a great guy.

Cheers everybody,
