Oliver Stone’s “Ukraine On Fire” Documentary Released In The West

Oliver Stone’s “Ukraine On Fire” Documentary Released In The West thumbnail

Oliver Stone’s seminal documentary Ukraine on Fire has finally been made available to watch in the West.

Investigative journalist Robert Parry reveals how US-funded political NGOs and media companies have emerged since the 1980s, replacing the CIA in promoting America’s geopolitical agenda abroad.

As Russia-Insider details, Ukraine on Fire provides a historical perspective for the deep divisions in the region which led to the 2004 Orange Revolution, the 2014 uprisings, and the violent overthrow of democratically-elected Yanukovych. Covered by Western media as a ‘popular revolution’, it was in fact a coup d’état scripted and staged by ultra-nationalist groups and the US State Department.

Executive producer Oliver Stone gained unprecedented access to the inside story through his on-camera interviews with former President Viktor Yanukovych and Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko, who explain how the US Ambassador and factions in Washington actively plotted for regime change.

And, in his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Stone solicits Putin’s take on the significance of Crimea, NATO and the US’s history of interference in elections and regime change in the region.

The film was originally released in 2016, but unsurprisingly, Stone came up against problems distributing the film in the US and western countries.

A Russian-dubbed version was available almost immediately and was aired on TV in Russia, but people in the ‘free world’ were left without access to the full film.

    Oh really Oliver Stone? I’m gonna watch it but did you ask Putin about support for NK, support for fake news propaganda on America, jamming of Radio Free Europe in the past, preventing opposition candidate from running in upcoming presidential election?

    Of course I’m missing out a lot but what about being a one trick pony vis a vis the Songun policy of putting military first in order to keep up with the free world? And doing it through massive spying and recruiting of our supertards such as Cambridge Five? Who ended up drinking to death because supertards are only supertards in their natural habitat in America. Placing them in Moscow and they become meretards.

    I mean if you focus on one thing only, who would even aspire to beat you. No we can’t. We aren’t competing on level playing field because I need running water and safe electricity that supertards provide me.

    Oliver Stone has a way of holding American foreign policy in front of a mirror. I am not at all surprised he ran into problems distributing his film in the free world. The last thing the Robber barons want is a society that encourages critical thinking.

    For 1000 years the Ukraine was part of the Russian sphere of influence. Heck, Russia began with “Kievan-Rus”:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kievan_Rus%27

    But Washington, always on the lookout for new territory to add to its empire, had set it sights on the Ukraine that accidentally had become an independent country after the demise of the USSR. The deep state, in cooperation with its German vassal Merkel and the “Adenauer Stiftung” in particular had prepared the subversion of the Ukraine years in advance.

    Here the deep stater (((Victory Nuland))) triumphantly announcing the conquest of the Ukraine:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2fYcHLouXY

    …and the violent coup that succeeded, that brought Washington-friendly oligarch (((Pereshenko))) to power.

    Unfortunately for Washington, Putin acted promptly and captured the Crimea in an act of damage limitation so it could at least keep the Sevastopol naval facilities and keep the “Russian Riviera” as cash cow.

    In an effort by Ukrainian right-wing forces to eliminate Russian identity from the Ukraine, a civil war erupted in the Russian majority East. The Russians there felt like Ukrainians, as long as their minority rights (read: political dominance) were guaranteed. But the Ukrainian West, that during long periods had belonged to Europe and Austrian Empire in particular always had hated Russia and saw its chance to escape.

    Normally Washington hates nationalists (“Natzis”), but out of opportunism an exception was made for Ukrainian nationalists, as long as they could be sicked into a war with Russia, in an attempt to try to provoke Vlad into an all-out invasion. Putin wisely didn’t bite.

    But Washington did very well succeed in driving a wedge between Europe and Russia, although Europe didn’t really like it.

    But it was mainly thanks to Merkel that sanctions are being upheld until today, although much pressure to get them lifted exists:

    https://www.rt.com/news/372510-austria-kurz-russia-sanctions/

    The situation seems to have eased now. Trade with Russia is quietly growing and in no way lets Europe itself being pushed in a major conflict with Russia. Putin understands that and has a lot of patience with the Europeans. Not that he has much choice anyway. He thinks too European to burn all the bridges behind him and put all his cards with an alliance with China. Europe is his strategic goal: an alliance/confederation with Germany and France.

    Patience, mr Putin, patience. In geopolitics, as with chess and ballroom dancing, timing is everything.

    I basically agree with Cloggie on this one. I would just add that the USA has been fucking with Ukraine uninterruptedly since the collapse of the Soviet Union and that I don’t expect them to stop any time soon. I wouldn’t be surprised if the USA sold more weapons to Ukraine again in an attempt to restart the war in Donbass. Sending money there is a waste of resources because Ukrainian politicians are unbelievably corrupt and billions are nothing to them. The USA seems to be happy with the status quo for now, though. Probably because they may be afraid to push the Europeans too far. The Ukraine war was the event that made me lose all hope in the US government and made me realize what a bunch of sociopathic, compulsive liars they are. I believe the USA lost more than Russia in Ukraine. The USA lost the support of most of humanity there and the sympathy it had won after the false flag 911 attack. But they needed 911 to have an excuse for the never ending global war on terrorism. It is like I always say, the USA’s enemies don’t need to do anything other than sit back and watch because nobody could do better at destroying the “land of the free and the home of the brave” than Americans, they excel at it. Destroying countries is the ONE thing Americans are really good at after all and now it seems to be the USA’s time.

    Here is a good one year old article about the anti-Atlanticist option Europe has:

    https://www.newsbud.com/2016/12/20/the-paris-berlin-moscow-axis-shattering-the-power-of-the-atlanticist-narrative-in-eu/

    Nevertheless, the stupidest thing Europe could do is to embrace Russia too early, because that would drive China and America into each others arms and that would be a winning coalition, just like the US-USSR coalition was winning one in 1945.

    The status quo is good for everybody, but the least for the US leadership. With every passing year, Europe gets more integrated, China’s power is rising and the US gets more divided with changing demographics, tempting the European-Americans to leave the union.

    America will never succeed in conquering the entire world and they know it. But that is no guarantee that war will not break out. War is always the means of last resort in keeping your country together and quell inner unrest.

    America remains THE #1 destabilizing factor, even with Trump more or less at the helm. America is a war machine designed to conquer the world. But what if that goal is no longer realistic?

    Trump is a buffoon, but I believe he was sincere in his campaign promises: building the wall, buddying up with Russia, introducing protectionist policies, demanding that Europeans do more for their defense (against who?). Essentially giving up on empire. But the deep state won’t let America give up on empire. The war between Trump and the media (extension deep state) is fascinating to watch and the longer Trump holds out, the greater the damage to the MSM will be. This charade will only end when the country falls apart, like the USSR.

    Europe from Atlantic to Ural mountains is just as big as the US and consists of 30 countries. It would be beneficial for the world and the US population if the US would consist of a few countries as well.

    “democratically-elected Yanukovych” it is the same as democratically-elected Putin.
    Ha-ha-ha.
    “For 1000 years the Ukraine was part of the Russian sphere of influence. Heck, Russia began with “Kievan-Rus” – 1000 years ago Russia was not even exicting state.Heck Ukraine,not a Russia began with Kievan Rus.

    Anglo /Euro / Americans have never forgiven or forgotten that the peasants of Russia rose up and murdered the cousin of the English king and his family and also defeated the post ww1 invasion of Russia by the anglo-Americans and their ‘white’Russian army of mainly Ukrainians. Read history folks, it’s all there. Allot happened in 1914-1946 to make you sick of the rich and why they persue Russia and China and three will never be peace.

    It is more than confrontation with China because China was used by the global rich to enrich themselves. It was seen as a huge opportunity to grow profits. Look at the size of the Chinese market! Thus began the end of modern civilization. When we decided to lift China up to western levels we effectively ended modern civilization by fast forwarding our rendezvous with limits to growth by decades. If we had a chance it was over when China modernized.

    In fact it is the China of pre-Deng that should have been an inspiration. They actually road bikes around large cities. Agriculture was primitive but adapted to the nutrient cycle in many cases. They had industrial agriculture but nothing like today. The rich of the world help finance this explosive earth ending growth. I am not blaming the Chinese here. They deserve to be rich too but it is Chinese enrichment that has in effect sealed our fate of ending the earth and modern civilization.

    We are all to blame for this because we knew back in the 80’s an ecological day of reckoning was ahead. I have a finance degree which really didn’t amount to much. Real finance I learned with 20 years in business. Yet, it was many of my electives in college related to peak oil, ecology, and social injustice that was an example of a budding awakening society was going through in the early 80’s that influenced me. This experience was probably what was the match that lit my flame of doom. I went on to be sold on globalization and sustainable development for a few years because it seemed our only hope.

    We instead as a society in collusion with the greed of the rich lied to ourselves that we could globalize and practice sustainable development. This was a total lie. We lied to ourselves collectively that we could achieve both affluence and a cleaner world. It is not that the principals of sustainable development are wrong. It is the application to a competitive cooperative world of market based capitalism and liberal democracy in population overshoot that is a lie.

    You cannot drive affluence by comparative advantage and increasing techno development and deal with limits to growth. This is cake and eat it behavior. You must have demand management and behavioral management. In the case of demand it is laws and behavior it is education. Instead we have promoted greed and consumerism as the principal of affluence and told ourselves we could be clean too. It is that application that allowed the moral hazards we have today instead of being unable to say no and control destructive urges.

    What we now have is a world where we are far worse with likely no hope of change without collapse. Maybe we never could change. Maybe the sooner we hit limits the better. In this case then China was the poison pill for a necessary and good civilizational euthanasia for the betterment of the planet. Pick your poison because man cannot continue to be linear in a circular planetary system.
