Ukraine’s Propaganda War: International PR Firms, DC Lobbyists and CIA Cutouts

Dan Cohen reveals the network of foreign strategists, Washington DC lobbyists, and intelligence-linked media outlets behind Ukraine’s public relations blitz.

The campaign includes language guides, key messages, and hundreds of propaganda posters, some of which contain fascist imagery and even praise Neo-Nazi leaders.

Behind Ukraine’s public relations effort is an army of foreign political strategists, Washington DC lobbyists, and a network of intelligence-linked media outlets.

In other words. NGO's, think tanks, and public relation firms. In which are the very same type of entities that funded and supported the fascist elements of the Maidan revolution. There were many of them. In which are supported by governments and owned by the international ruling class. Our tax dollars included. The violence that was created by their actions took away the voices of many Ukrainians who opposed the coup and US intervention. To listen to our MSCM you'd believe Ukraine is a totally united front under attack from an aggressor simply for geopolitical reasons.

Listening to our media you'd think the Russian army was holding people from leaving Mariupol. Claiming they are even shooting at innocent civilians in some cases. This begs the question, who's actually doing the shooting at civilians. There's no one in this long line of people attempting to get out in fear here. Quite the opposite actually. As one man agrees with why they are searching the vehicles and tells us why. Which you won't hear from our MSCM.

{Ukraine’s propaganda strategy earned it praise from a NATO commander who told the Washington Post, “They are really excellent in stratcom — media, info ops, and also psy-ops.” The Post ultimately conceded that “Western officials say that while they cannot independently verify much of the information that Kyiv puts out about the evolving battlefield situation, including casualty figures for both sides, it nonetheless represents highly effective stratcom.”

Key to the propaganda effort is an international legion of public relations firms working directly with Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to wage information warfare.

According to the industry news site PRWeek, the initiative was launched by an anonymous figure who allegedly founded a Ukraine-based public relations firm.

“From the first hour of war, we decided to join the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to help them distribute the official sources to show the truth,” the nameless figure told PR Week. “This is a hybrid war: the mix of bloodily struggling fight with a huge disinformation and fake campaign lead by Russia [sic].”

According to the anonymous figure, more than 150 public relations firms have joined the propaganda blitz.}

I've been covering this atrocity for several years. With it I've provided key substantial information with photos and videos. Those that snubbed their nose at it went on to support fascist based on a managed perception. With a nation informed of the facts we might have been able to stop this. We had 8 years available to us to call out our government on the lies they were spewing. Biden should not be our president! He's every bit the god dam criminal Bush is! How much more blood are we willing to wash our hands in?

{Among the propaganda constructs distributed in the dossier, is a video of the Snake Island incident, which was quickly proven false, in which Ukrainian border guards stationed on a small island were reported to have been killed after they told an approaching Russian warship that had urged them to surrender to “Go fuck yourself.” President Zelensky held a press conference announcing he would award the men the Hero of Ukraine medal as mainstream media spread the story widely. However, the supposedly-dead soldiers quickly turned up alive and well, proving their heroic stand to be a farce.}

{“The Ghost of Kiev” – a heroic Ukrainian pilot who turns out to be non-existent (https://www.military.com/daily-news/2022/03/02/ukraines-fighter-ace-ghost-of-kyiv-may-be-myth-its-lethal-war-morale.html) – and the phony “Snake Island 13” incident.}

That article from Military.com reveals what I mentioned about disinformation recently using re-purposed footage from a popular video game flight simulator. Go on to view all the nice fascist art they make.

Foreign extremists flock to Ukraine

The dossier also contains a link to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs page called “Fight for Ukraine,” which provides instructions for foreigners who wish to join Ukraine’s Neo-Nazi-infested armed forces – termed the “International Defense Legion of Ukraine.”

Following Zelensky’s call for foreign fighters to form a brigade, fighters from all over the world, including the U.S., UK, Canada, Australia, Spain, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, and more have traveled to face Russian forces. Others with no combat training or experience have arrived for “war tourism” – what one British soldier called “bullet-catchers.” 😟

A new name for cannon fodder? In a thought I say let them face their fate, good riddance. In another I know most have been manipulated by the same ilk that have the rest of those supporting them from ignorance. No longer apparent that war brings just both establishment parties so quickly, apparently the supporters of those parties also. I've always stated that we have basically the same views in regards of the political spectrum, but it's disheartening to see it in this regards.

{However, the foreigners who have traveled to Ukraine have encountered a much more severe reality than they anticipated.

Russia’s air force bombed military installations adjacent to where the foreign fighters were sleeping. Having fled to neighboring Poland, a Spanish fighter described the bombing as a “message” that could have killed thousands.

Similarly, an American fighter who hid in an ambulance to escape the frontlines warned that Ukrainian authorities were killing foreigners who decided not to fight, calling it a “trap.”}

If any of you could managed to stomach watching the RT 8 year long documentary being showed in parts, you'd learned that many of Ukrainians men refused to kill unarmed citizens. Leaving their equipment, some joining the separatist, some captured fascist telling how it wasn't like they were told, also some of them joining. The separatist commanders are largely made up of the Ukrainian army who went back home to defend their people.

I'll argue that the majority of Ukrainians opposed what happened in 2014. As the RT documentary and Ukraine on Fire exposed, Maidan was largely successful due to fascist being bused in from the most fascistic areas of the country. This only benefits the oligarchs and politicians. The voices of the citizenry has been vastly uncovered. On 2 occasions now presidents who were voted in have gone badly for their voices. 1 was illegally overthrown in 2014, and the next 1 betrayed the citizens and his claim of peace and began the attacks in Donbas.

Cohen goes on to show a litany of deceptive misinformation. Then compares it to Russian information. Then point out an article by Max Blumenthal on the bombing of the theater.

Was bombing of Mariupol theater staged by Ukrainian Azov extremists to trigger NATO intervention?
Testimony by evacuated Mariupol residents and warnings of a false flag attack undermine the Ukrainian government’s claims about a Russian bombing of a local theater sheltering civilians.

A closer look reveals that local residents in Mariupol had warned three days before the March 16 incident that the theater would be the site of a false flag attack launched by the openly neo-Nazi Azov Battalion, which controlled the building and the territory around it.

Civilians that escaped the city through humanitarian corridors have testified that they were held by Azov as human shields in area, and that Azov fighters detonated parts of the theater as they retreated.

I posted on that the next morning as I was watching it on RT. As our MSCM was then reporting of troop fighting I called bullshit on and a statement from the mayor. I was watching Russian troops handing out humanitarian supplies to the citizens as a man was describing how his wife was killed the day before, and how the Ukrainian army shot a tank round into a school where people were in the basement the day before they evacuated. You can't have troop fighting when they have already fled the area! What was happening, and been happening since, is periodic shelling from the Ukraine army from afar. That won't last much longer. They'll either run out of ammunition or Russia will add more destruction to our tax dollars.

Not to confuse the articles anymore. Cohen basically goes back into a long list of various groups who manufactured the dis/misinformation campaign. Learn the names of the groups and their ties. A ton of good information there.
