von der Leyen uncensored
On November 30, 2022, European Commission president Ursula von der leyen states
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has brought death, devastation and unspeakable suffering. We all remember the horrors of Bucha. It is estimated that 20,000 civilians and more than 100,000 Ukrainian military officers have been killed so far. Russia must pay for its horrific crimes, including for its crime of aggression against a sovereign State. And this is why, while continuing to support the International Criminal Court, we are proposing to set up a specialized court, backed by the United Nations, to investigate and prosecute Russia’s crime of aggression […] Russia must also pay financially for the devastation that it caused. The damage suffered by Ukraine is estimated at 600 billion euros […] And we have the means to make Russia pay. We have blocked 300 billion euros of the Russian Central Bank reserve and we have frozen 19 billion euros of Russian oligarch’s money. In the short term, we could create, with our partners, a structure to manage these funds and invest them. We would then use the proceeds for Ukraine. And once the sanctions are lifted, these funds should be used so that Russia pay full compensation for the damages caused to Ukraine […] And together, we can legal way to get to it
Legal is the main key word for a fraudulent project. Voldoymyr Zelenskyy and von der Leyen are sharing the same passion for money. The president of the European Commission is widely recognized as incompetent and corrupted. I guess she would find way to rob the shop. She is also the embodiment of a European Union reduced to a free market area within NATO, of Germany’s historical and strategic fanaticism for the Ostgebiete, eastern territories. Her vocabulary would be another subject
Crime of aggression means
the planning, preparation, initiation or execution, by a person in a position effectively to exercise control over or to direct the political or military action of a State, of an act of aggression which, by its character, gravity and scale, constitutes a manifest violation of the Charter of the United Nations
But the International Criminal Court (ICC) may only prosecute States which are parties of 1998 Rome Statute, or following a resolution of the United Nations Security Council. China, Russia and the US are not signatories of Rome Statute, may also veto a draft resolution at the United Nations. Case closed. That is why von der Leyen floats the foolish idea of another way.
Anyway, fair debates would be interesting. The Russian special military operation for liberation of Donbass, demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, is the solution to the war crimes in Donbass of a Ukrainian State which did not implement 2014 and 2015 Minsk peace agreements, was cracking down, with its army and Nazi paramilitaries, on citizens whom it was wrongly calling terrorists. The case would be easier to defend than for example, the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, under the fraudulent pretext of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the country. Moreover, after the beginning of that Russian operation on February 24, 2022, a ceasefire may have been implemented through negotiation, but NATO, especially the US and UK, have prevented it. The result is a carnage for the Ukrainian cannon fodder of a proxy war.
As for the horrors, I appreciate that von der Leyen has raised Bucha, where early April, the Ukrainian authorities and their Western accomplices have staged the victims of previous Ukrainian shelling of civilian areas, where Ukrainian death squads have also slaughtered alleged pro-Russia collaborators. I am sharing that conclusion with Scott Ritter, the famous former US intelligence officer and UN inspector in Iraq.
Now the main issue, von der Leyen has confirmed today, from European intelligence sources, I guess, that the fighting are a bloodbath for Ukraine, which has lost more than 100,000 service members killed in action (KIA). Ukrainian artillery is firing around 6,000 shells a day all over the front line, the Russian consumption may raise to 50,000, has reminded a senior anonymous NATO official. In view of the Russian air supremacy, tactical, operational and strategic strikes on military targets, despite the massive involvement of Western intelligence, the Ukrainian casualties are obviously far higher than the enemy ones. According to a Russian mathematical model, the Ukrainian military fatalities since February 24 are indeed above 100,000, about 120,000
The issue is cruel for the Ukrainian propaganda and presidential spokesman Serhii Nykyforov comments that only the Commander-in-Chief (Valerii Zaluzhnyi), the minister of defense (Oleksiy Reznikov) or the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of Ukraine (Zelenskyy) should provide reliable information about losses, that the president will make public the official data when the right moment will come, because the information is sensitive. Indeed, families are already demanding news about the missing ones. That is why von der Leyen’s speech is later truncated. Despite the Western censorship, here is the original one, where the president of European Union raises the severe Ukrainian casualties
