During June, Ukraine experienced the fourth month of the war, which has been marked by a sharp increase in the losses of Ukrainian military personnel. Estimates of the losses vary, but at the beginning of the month, President Zelensky said that 100 soldiers were being killed every day; while Mikhail Podolyak, the head of his Office, spoke of 200 being killed daily, and the head of the Zelensky ‘Servant of the people’ party faction, David Arakhamia, announced that about a thousand were killed and wounded daily.[1]

Ukraine, trapped in a spiral of war: Pierre de Gaulle

Napoleon silver Specimen Essai “Friendship” Medallic 2 Francs L’An IX (1801), by Tiolier.

The speech that follows was given by Pierre de Gaulle, the grandson of Charles de Gaulle, at the French Embassy in Paris, on June 14, 2022, to mark Russia Day. It is a speech that has been heavily censored in France, and we are happy to provide this English translation.

Mr. de Gaulle addresses the current Ukraine-Russia conflict by way of a blunt and brave denouncement of the French political elite who have succeeded in undermining the ideals of his grandfather who always sought the inclusion of Russia within Europe. The opening words of greetings Mr. de Gaulle made in Russian.

‘European Commonwealth’: Self-serving British proposal for another military bloc in Europe

NATO Madrid Summit and War Exercises in Asia Pacific | Hilary LeBlanc

May 21 demonstration at RAF Lakenheath, a US air force base, to protest against US nuclear weapons and nuclear bombers once again being brought to Britain.*

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, to alleviate the post Brexit problems in which Britain is mired, is going all out to use the crisis in Ukraine to shore up British fortunes. Johnson proposed forming yet another military bloc which will reportedly include Ukraine, the UK, Poland, the Baltic States and possibly Turkey. The proposal, referred to as a “European Commonwealth,” was made during Johnson’s visit to Kiev in April, as “a new system of political, economic and military alliances — alternative to the European Union,” according to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera.

NATO defence ministers make final preparations for Madrid Summit, June 29-30

NATO Madrid Summit and War Exercises in Asia Pacific | Steve Rutchinski

NATO defence ministers wrapped up two days of discussions on June 16, just a fortnight ahead of the NATO Strategic Concept Summit scheduled for June 29 and 30 in Madrid. Not a word was heard about finding a negotiated settlement to end hostilities in Ukraine or ways to lower the level of hostilities directed against Russia and China. Responsibility for elaborating that direction and for averting a wider war thus falls to the peoples of the world, especially those of NATO member countries. NATO must be stopped and disbanded for there to be peace and security.

Children’s checkpoints. Young Ukrainians are brought up with chauvinism and craving for robbery

We must cleanse from the hearts of children the blood-stained rust of this horrible and senseless war; we must restore to those hearts a faith in mankind and respect for it. – Maxim Gorky in a letter to H.G. Wells, December 1916

Children rehearse | Reuters photo used by The Globe and Mail to advocate sending more lethal weapons to Ukraine

The manipulation of the image of innocent children is pronounced in atrocity propaganda and disinformation to justify the NATO-provoked war in Ukraine. Journalist DMITRY KOVALEVICH* reports from the other side, about the proliferation of children’s checkpoints and their modus operandi.

Checkpoints in Ukraine are not uncommon. During Maidans or various troubles, patriotic citizens block roads and check everyone who enters or leaves the settlement. However, a special military operation of the Russian Federation gave rise to a new phenomenon in Ukraine – children’s checkpoints.

Kissinger addresses how the US should proceed to order and divide the world (I)

What Kissinger is saying is that Ukraine, Taiwan and other issues should be used to pit China and Russia against each other in a manner that favours the U.S. and prevents them from establishing a “permanent alliance.”

A plethora of former U.S. presidents and vice-presidents, secretaries of state, national security advisors, newspapers and pundits of various kinds have been giving opinions about the Ukraine crisis and discussing U.S. foreign policy and the direction it should take. On May 23, Henry Kissinger, four days before he turned 99 years old, spoke virtually at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland. In the lead up to the WEF he also gave an interview to the Financial Times on May 9. He addressed the issues of Ukraine, China, Russia and nuclear weapons.

The striving of the peoples for a new world order: Today, thinking things through is more necessary than ever

As the world descends into an abyss of anarchy and violence as a result of the neo-liberal world order, every aspect of people’s lives seems to be spinning out of their control

By PAULINE EASTON, Editorial introduction to TML Monthly*

As the world descends into an abyss of anarchy and violence as a result of the neo-liberal world order, every aspect of people’s lives seems to be spinning out of their control. The U.S. and the big powers of Old Europe, with Canada in tow, imposed this neo-liberal world order after the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991.

By the end of May, Ukraine had already experienced three months of hostilities, and had lost a total of 21% of its territory[i] since the beginning of the Russian operation. In the Russian-controlled territories of the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, the Russian authorities appointed a temporary local administration, introduced a dual-currency zone (Ukrainian and Russian currencies), and began to pay pensions and salaries.[ii] At the end of May, the Russian authorities also decided to issue Russian passports to the residents of these regions, in addition to the people of Donbass.[iii] According to their estimates, about 70% of the inhabitants of the regions want to adopt Russian citizenship.[iv]

Calls to place US missiles and other military installations in Canada

War preparations in the name of national interest. The situation in Ukraine shows how important it is to elaborate why Canada should get out of NATO and NORAD and how Canada’s membership in NATO and NORAD are factors that contribute to war | Enver Villamizar

CTV News reports that retired Canadian General Tom Lawson, a former NORAD Deputy Commander serving under U.S. command before serving as Canada’s Chief of Defence Staff from 2012-2015, said the opportunity the conflict in Ukraine presents is “a perfect moment to announce that we’re coming on board with all forms of [U.S.] ballistic missile defence and we are going to discuss the positioning of new [U.S.] radar systems and new [U.S.] missile interceptors on Canadian soil.” He added: “And, by the way, we are now announcing that we’re buying F-35s, the first of which will be delivered four years from now. Now, all of a sudden, you’re looking pretty beefy.”

Earth Day 22. All Out to Humanize the Natural and Social Environment!

– Statement of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) –

March at COP26 in Glasgow, November 6, 2021

On Earth Day April 22, the peoples of the world come together to demand proper attention be paid to Mother Earth and denounce the reality that their concerns are not being met. The United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26) held this past year in Glasgow, Scotland was a complete disaster. More disinformation than ever poured from the mouths of officials from the United States, Britain, Canada and the European countries representing the global elite in control of those economies. They attempted to give the impression of taking measures to bring climate change under control while in fact increasing the number of damaging pay-the-rich schemes and other self-serving practices, all the while spouting the high ideal of “greening the economy.”

Disinformation about war crimes in Ukraine: The more it goes, the more hysterical, irrational and dangerous it becomes

The U.S./NATO disinformation, warmongering and lies over what is taking place in Ukraine is more hysterical, irrational and dangerous than ever. Without even stopping to raise the obvious need for an independent inquiry into what is called evidence of war crimes committed by Russia, let alone permitting such an inquiry to function and draw warranted conclusions, the President of the U.S., Canadian official circles from the Prime Minister on down to Canada’s U.N. Ambassador, the head of the European Union and others, along with their media and rabid promoters of wiping out Russia, are hurling epithets at Vladimir PutinThey are raising calls to kill him and for regime change, denying that they raised such calls, and then condemning Russia and conniving to get a resolution passed by the UN General Assembly to throw Russia off the UN Human Rights Council.

Videos showing Africans being pushed back from trains and border crossings have gone viral on social media (for example, here), causing an uproar and sparking statements of concern by African politicians and officials.

Russian athletes banned and expelled from competition

Developments of Concern Related to U.S./NATO War Hysteria

Russian athletes are being targeted by various sports federations, including the paralympics, soccer, tennis, car racing, figure skating, curling and other sports who are banning them from competitions. The bans were instigated in large part when the International Olympic Committee (IOC), dominated by the U.S. and NATO countries, took an unprecedented step and demanded that global federations and event organizers put in place a global ban on athletes from Russia and Belarus from all sporting events.

Persecution of Russian artists is unacceptable

Developments of concern related to U.S./NATO war hysteria | Pierre Chénier

A matter of great concern is the persecution of Russian artists as a result of the U.S./NATO war hysteria which has become official ideology within the NATO member countries including Canada. The definition of persecution is the systematic mistreatment of an individual or group by another individual or group. In this regard, there is currently a concerted offensive by cultural institutions in NATO member countries to fire or boycott prominent Russian artists. In some cases it is because they refuse to take a political position of their liking on events in Ukraine or simply because hysteria has been fomented against anything Russian.

Latest TML Monthly published

The reason for the pre-emptive strike launched by Russia is the U.S. and NATO refusal to recognize the conditions Russia requires to secure its borders since the end of the bi-polar division of the world. Talk about “Russian aggression” diverts from the fact that there would be no conflict today, or certainly not this conflict, had the U.S. not expanded NATO at all, had it agreed to keep Ukraine out of NATO and not used it to permit neo-Nazi gangs to attack the population of eastern Ukraine and threaten Russia’s borders. It should have dismantled NATO after the Warsaw Pact was officially disbanded in March and July of 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Instead, the U.S. expanded NATO and is engaging in brinkmanship, pushing pushing pushing to see how far it can go in the hopes it can prevail to crush Russia and then deal with China from a position of strength.

This is by no means a road to peace.
