Putin's 'anti-Nazi' rhetoric an 'attack on history' as Zelensky's Jewish family laid bare




Putin has his ‘back against the wall’ says Lord Robathan

When Putin launched his ruthless invasion on Ukraine he justified the unnecessary aggression with the baseless claim that Russia need to “denazify” Ukraine and stop an ongoing “genocide” of Russian-sympathising Ukranians. The Kremlin’s messaging has been consistent since Russia’s onslaught, with Putin having labelled Ukraine’s democratically elected government as a “gang of drug addicts and neo-Nazi’s”. He also urged Ukraine’ population to not “let neo-Nazis use your children, wives and elders as human shields.”

Last Friday, Putin continued to peddle the lie when he held a pro-war rally in Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium, by addressing the Russian people while standing behind a banner that said: “For a world without Nazism. For Russia.”

Putin claim is particularly bizarre considering Ukraine’s President Mr Zelensky is Jewish, and has family who died in the holocaust.

Washington Post contributing columnist James McAuley wrote earlier this month: “These are the facts: Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky is not a Nazi. He’s a Jew, and one whose family suffered immensely at the hands of the Nazi death machine.”

He continued: “In the site of the attempted liquidation of the Jewish people, a Jew was chosen as president with a groundswell of public support.

“Putin’s claims that his government’s sudden invasion of Ukraine is somehow about ‘denazification’ is an insult not only to Zelensky, but also to the course of history.

“Are we to simply forget the long and terrible history of Soviet and Russian antisemitism. The czar’s pogroms in the Pale of Settlement, the Doctor’s Plot or the crackdown on Soviet refuseniks?

“An invasion that could very well end with the toppling or, God forbid, the killing of the first Jewish head of state Ukraine has ever known is not an ‘anti-nazi’ operation.

“If anything, it has clear echoes of the Nazi campaign Putin claims to loathe. It is a baseless invasion based on an imagined threat and it targets a Jewish leader at the same time it triggers the evacuation of a vibrant Jewish community.”

Three of Mr Zelensky’s great uncles were murdered in the Holocaust, while his grandfather survived.

Nevertheless, in 2019, the Jewish leader made history by being elected with 73 percent of the vote in the run-off.

Months later, in 2020, during the commemoration in Israel of the 75th anniversary of Auschwitz’s liberation, Mr Zelensky spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netayahu about some of Ukraine’s bravest actors during World War 2.

He told the story of a Crimean Muslim woman and a Catholic priest who saved huge amounts of Jewish children, and the recounted another story about “a family of four brothers.”

According to the Washington Post, Mr Zelensky said: “Three of them, their parents and their families became victims of the Holocaust.

“All of them were shot by German occupiers who invaded Ukraine.

“The fourth brother survived. Two years after the war, he had a son, and in 31 years, he had a grandson.

“In 40 more years, that grandson became president, and he is standing before you today, Mr Prime Minister.”

That same month, Mr Zelensky explained to the Times of Israel that his grandfather and his three great uncles fought in the Soviet army, but only the former returned home.

Meanwhile, his Jewish grandmother escaped persecution by evacuating to Kazakhstan, before returning to Ukraine after the war and becoming a teacher.

However, Mr Zelensky said he didn’t grow up in a religious household as “religion didn’t exist in the Soviet state as such”.

In 1941, the Holocaust entered a new phase after the Nazi invasion of eastern Europe.

Rather than ship jews to concentration camps, mobile squads of Nazi’s began killing Jewish men, women and children in places like Babi Yar, Ukraine, where over 33,000 people were shot to death.

In response to Putin’s invasion, the US’ Memorial and Museum condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and said that Putin had “misrepresented and misappropriated Holocaust history.



Pay Attention To Childhood Cancer



Childhood Cancer

Childhood cancer is not very common, since it is estimated that for every 100 adults affected by cancer, there is one child who suffers from it. It comprises numerous types of tumors that develop in children and adolescents from 0 to 18 years of age. The most common types are leukemia, brain tumor, lymphomas, and solid tumors such as neuroblastoma and Willms tumor (kidney tumor).

Don’t Ignore Signs

Sometimes the symptoms of childhood cancer can be confused with those of other diseases, so it can take time to obtain a timely diagnosis that allows the disease to be treated in time. In this sense. Most doctors recommend that parents not ignore the signs, among which are persistent bone and abdominal pain, fever without apparent causes for more than a week, bruising or bleeding from the nose or gums, tumor or node growth, weight loss, among others.

Genetic Factors

Genetic factors and malformations play an important role in the onset of the disease, unlike in adults, where environmental factors such as infectious agents, radiation, smoking, minerals, and chemical compounds have a high incidence. In children, the main cause is still unknown.

The Diagnosis 

There are numerous diagnostic tests used to detect childhood cancer; these allow to determine the type of tumor, where it is located and if it has invaded neighboring organs, (if it has metastasized) for which laboratory tests, imaging studies, and biopsies are used. From which the type of treatment to be used to combat the disease will be established.

Medical Treatment

Many doctors give the reassurance that childhood cancer should be treated in institutions where there is a multidisciplinary health team, such as the Cancer Institute. This team consists of pediatric surgeons, radiation oncologists, orthopedists, hematologists, clinical oncologists, psycho-oncologists, among others.

Seek Local Help

The treatment is multidisciplinary, where excellence, professionalism, dedication, avant-garde in medical knowledge are combined, whose main objective is the fight against cancer. You should also consider local centers that offer cancer care Orange County-based.

'This is huge' Swedish Air Force jet deployed over Belarus border in threat to Putin




The Scandinavian country is not a member of NATO, but could be ready to trade in its neutral status in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

News of Stockholm’s decision to send a jet was revealed by twitter user Jamming.

They wrote: “Swedish Air Force Korpen active over Poland border area with Belarus.

“Sweden part of surveillance of Belarus and Ukraine!!!

“This is a huge political statement! Update on SwAF Korpen.”


The Gulfstream IV aircraft was tracked taking off from Linking airport and then flying towards the city of Grodno in western Belarus.

It was flying at an altitude of just under 12,000 metres at a speed of 836 kilometres per hour.

Although Sweden is not a NATO member, it is an “enhanced opportunity partner” of the military alliance.

The government also signed a statement in 2018 pledging to strengthen its defence cooperation.

Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson rejected calls by opposition parties earlier this month for the country to join NATO.

She argued that such a move would further destabilise Europe.

Her statement came in the wake of threats from Moscow that NATO membership would bring “serious military-political consequences” for Sweden.

However, there is growing public support among Swedes for their country to join the transatlantic military alliance.

A poll conducted in late February by broadcaster SVT found that 41 percent of the public supported NATO membership, while thirty-five percent were against.

It was the first time an opinion study in Sweden had found more people in favour of the country joining NATO than were against it.

Putin humiliated: Russia tries and fails to capture defiant Ukraine village for tenth time




Russia has tried and failed to capture the village of the Chornobaevka ten times, according to Ukrainian presidential adviser Aleksey Arestovich. Videos shared by Ukrainian officials online showed the “tenth defeat of the Russian invaders in Chornobaevka”. The continued failures to capture the village comes as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said last night that his country’s forces had “dealt powerful blows” to the Russian military.

Mr Arestovich told a press conference that Russian troops had tried to take Chornobaevka for the tenth time, but the assault again ended in failure.

Following this, the head of the nearby Mykolaiv Regional State Administration Vitaly Kim published a video showing “the defeat” as explosions erupt on the outskirts of the village.

The resolute village has become famous in Ukraine for its defence, as President Zelensky commended Chornobaivka last weekend for fending off six invasions at the time.

He said: “Ukrainian Chornobaivka will go down in war history. This is a place where the Russian military and their commanders have shown themselves for who they truly are – incompetent, capable of simply handing over their people for slaughter.

“Our military has annihilated the invaders near Chornobaivka six times.

“Six times, yet they keep coming back.”

JUST IN: Putin on brink of major RETREAT in Kyiv

Online users ridiculed the latest Russian failures and hailed the Ukrainian defiance, with one Reddit user remarking: “At some point, I think every military intelligence outfit looking at this must be wondering how bad the rot is in the Russian military.”

One user visavillem added: “So this is the 10th time. Are Russians trying to bait Ukrainians to waste ammo with some obsolete/broken equipment, or are they really so stupid, that they keep stepping on the same rake again and again?”

Another user on Reddit adfgqert posted: “The Ukrainian people have resolve and determination that is beyond what I think is normal.

“Beyond inspirational and they bring fighting for what they believe in to a new level for me.” 

This comes amid ongoing setbacks for Russian military forces in the south of the country.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Russia had withdrawn most of its helicopters from a strategic airport in Kherson, in southern Ukraine, according to satellite images.

Kherson has also been the site of several local protests against the occupying Russian soldiers.

The official said: “We can’t corroborate exactly who is in control of Kherson but the point is, it doesn’t appear to be as solidly in Russian control as it was before.

“That would make it very, very difficult for them to make any kind of ground movement on Odesa.

“That would be a significant development, no question about that, in terms of the southern part of the war.”
