RT: Ukrainian military pilot defects to Russia – media 

The pilot is already on Russian territory and is being interviewed by the security services, the TASS news agency says  

A military pilot from the Armed Forces of Ukraine has defected to Russia, TASS reported on Saturday, citing a person who allegedly organized the pilot’s flight over the frontlines. The Ukrainian in question is an active-duty serviceman who held the rank of “senior officer” with Kiev’s forces, a Russian Telegram channel following the situation has claimed. 

“The Ukrainian armed forces pilot is currently in Russia and is being interviewed by the Federal Security Service,” a Russian military strike helicopter pilot identified by TASS as Aleksey Voevoda told the agency. Russians were reportedly behind the operation.

Update: Ukrainian military pilot defects to Russia — organizer (TASS)  

WNU editor: If this report is true, and many military bloggers on both sides of this war are saying it is true, will mean only one thing. Until a thorough investigation has been done, there is going to be a delay on when Ukraine is going to get its F-16s.  

Update #2: Ukraine is denying reports of a defection .... Military intelligence denies Russia's claim that Ukrainian pilot defected (Kyiv Independent).

I wonder if it was one of the F-16s already brought into the country. Article doesn’t say what type of plane he was in. Or did I miss it?

Pilots who get F16 will have already been thoroughly screened, and have strong family links etc to Ukraine

A Russian pilot defects here, an Ukrainian pilot defects there. This we know. WNU ignores the former and bellows about the latter.

I will assume it is true. The question is why. One answer is that Joe Biden has dragged his feet on the F-16s. He dragged his feet on tanks, ATACMS, cruise missiles and Patriot AD.

Biden and others. Scratch the fucker Biden, he does not think for more than 3 to 5 hours a day before the sundowner effect kicks in. Others might reason that they have to gradually ratchet up support so they can gradually show they are serious and mean business or because they are afraid of WW3. How did ratcheting up pressure on North Vietnam work with Rolling Thunder?

Rolling Thunder by LBJ was a failure. Linebacker by Nixon was a success. Rolling thunder and Linebacker stand in stark contrast to each other. There is a very easy lesson to learn. However folks at State and politicians eschew learning about military history or science.

Linebacker was like Blitzkieg. Rolling Thunder was like sending reinforcements in penny packets. It was like sending in reinforcements in such small quantities and so delayed that they do not affect battle in your favor.

this dragging feet by Biden give substance to the charge that The Swamp will fight to the last Ukrainian. So if you use heavenly justice and not the justice of man, who actually defected here? I would submit that The Swamp defected not the pilot. The pilot making his choice is merely denouement of the actions taken by The Swamp. In other words, people in The Swamp need to hang.

In other news a whole Russian platoon defected. This is related the refuseniks who are punished in the frontlines by exposure to the weather in open pits and their families having to pay a fortune to free them only for them to get sent on a banzai charge anyway.

Russian servicemen are stripped naked and put into pits for refusing to go into meat assault without proper equipment. To get out, they need to pay up 400k rubles. These particular men spent 4 nights in the pit half naked.

This was revealed by the wife of one of the mobilised Russian men who ended up in the pit after refusing orders. The woman said they can be put there for no reason as well if the leadership doesn't like them.

Likewise, she said that to go on leave, one needs to pay the officers 200k rubles in cash. Otherwise, they'll never leave the zero line.

This Russian Pantsir was destroyed near Chaplynka, around 50km from the Dnipro river and deep inside Russian-occupied territory.

Considering the fact that this so-called “drone killer” was spotted by a drone so far from the current frontline and while being operational, just adds up to the long list of air defense failures of this Russian piece of hardware.

Russia is dying.

pay no attention to the ukie rah rah posting all that anti-russian propaganda nonsense. He is going thru a "life crisis" due to coming to terms that what he believed to be the truth is a bunch of fairy tales from the MSM blob narrative about the Ukrainians winning the war.

Here is a bit of reality as of today......


The Ukrainian actions strategically repeats the Artyomovsk meat grinder, in which the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost about 70 thousand people killed. Events in Avdeevka are developing according to an almost similar scenario: first, artillery around the most critical fortified areas is suppressed, and then logistics begin to be blocked. At the same time, the depth at which Ukrainian equipment is affected increases, but the pattern does not change: the Ukrainian Armed Forces, just like in Artyomovsk, are losing military equipment and people in attempts to maintain supplies for the Avdeevka garrison. However, despite the experience of the battles for Mariupol and Artyomovsk, as well as many months of fighting in the Orekhov region, the command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces stubbornly clings to problematic positions. It does not give orders for regrouping or retreat.

In essence, the Ukrainians are in a bad habit of reenforcing failure.

👍 thank-you. What is rarely mentioned is that much of the Ukrainian strategy revolves around western timelines and goals, which are based around election cycles. The Ukrainian slaughter will set a precedence in history as to how not to fight a modern war.

Irks Orking around

In today’s world what we should not be hearing is a story about another American being held hostage by the Russian government… AGAIN.

But that’s exactly what is going on. This is the story of how an American is being held against his will, in a foreign country, by the Russian government on made up charges. Eric Thomas Creamer from Millfield Ohio graduated from Athens High school in 2005, and went on to Ohio University and graduated in 2010. In school he studied English and Russian. After this he moved to Russia and was employed by MITP as an English teacher…

simple enough, but also he took on work as a translator, and at some point he translated some documents that appear to have been from the Russian ministry of defense (unknown to him) as part of his job at the time. Soon after translating some documents in 2017 Mr. Creamer was headed home one night. Just prior to getting home he was abducted by the FSB (security police or modern KGB). For hours he was held in custody, was tortured psychologically for hours, had a gun put up to his head demanding answers on why he was…. A spy.

The FSB was convinced that Mr. Creamer was a spy working for the CIA…. Yes we have seen this in the past with many Americans. Finding NO proof of anything, after many hours the FSB informed Mr. Creamer that they had “FOUND” .94 grams of methedrone at 3rd Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street, Moscow… The problem is that that the methedrone was not his, and he did not live at 3rd Tverskaya-Yamskaya Street. Creamer was held til he signed a back page of a form (he was not allowed to see the rest of the form) that stated he was being released. He was told there were no charges pending but he was told to “leave the country, NOW”.

Creamer did what he was told and got out of the country the next week. Moving ahead, in 2021 after being all over Europe, he went to Georgia for a vacation (he speaks Russian). His girlfriend and himself decided to take a trip to Armenia for the day. As soon as they crossed the border, Mr. Creamer found out that he was barred from leaving Armenia. Armenia is a member of Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). The CSTO is run by Russia and he found out that Russia had put out a warrant for Creamer on the trumped-up fake charges.

Anonymous said...

Creamer has been trying to leave Armenia for the last 2 years without any luck. The Armenians don’t want him, the Russians don’t want him, and the US embassy will not help him… He has been begging for help from the US embassy for over 2 years without any response other than a member of the staff “Chris” telling him to get a lawyer. In fact he has found out that no lawyer would touch this case as due to the fact that its now political. Mr Creamer has been to the local police, everyone knows him and no one cares, not Armenia, not Russia.. not even the Americans.

This is a sad situation where the Russians AGAIN are stating that an American is a spy without any proof, and to cover this up they say “ok not a spy, here is some drugs”. Just like Paul Whelan, Sarah Krivanek, and formally Brittney Griner Russia continues to target Americans without proof for political reasons.

Mr Creamer is asking the Armenian government VIA ambassador Makunts to release him (seek his release) so he can go home to Ohio to be with his 11 year old son and elderly mother that he has not seen in years. Although Armenia is a great country with a lot to offer it is not home. He has committed no crime there and Armenia wants to be seen as moving to the west having a new relationship with the USA, NATO, and EU. Having this public would probably hinder some of that movement west. He is simply asking the government of Armenia to allow him to leave the country just like every other American they hope to have visiting in the coming years without a issue.

The USA has made it a point to help the Armenian people, I can imagine that this is only a oversight by your country that can easily be fixed.

Mr Creamer is asking his senate members Sherrod Brown (subcommittee on international trade to Armenia) , and JD Vance for help, along with his house rep. Troy Balderson (12thdistrict) (Government Oversight & Reform aid to Armenia) for help with this issue. He is formally in writing requesting an official congressional inquiry on how Armenia is receiving NATO and US funding and still holding an American against his will on the orders of the Russian government.

On September 26, 2023 the US gave Armenia 11.5 million for humanitarian aid… it’s strange that a country getting aid from the USA would continue to hold a citizen hostage on behalf of the Russian government As with Ms. Griner, and Mr. Whelan, you can expect a social media, legal, and media campaign to start to have Mr. Creamer freed to leave Armenia soon. He has exhausted all options and wishes not to be forced to do that, but as stated it’s been over 2 years. And although the people and country of Armenia are lovely its time for him to come home..

Please help release Mr. Creamer, this is an unneeded, political issue that can be fixed just by simply allowing him to get on an aircraft back to the USA to people that love and miss him.

Sucks to be Russian

China’s claims to Russia’s Far East are fact-based and indisputable. The thoughts of some Chinese nationalists are focused on a particular Russian city—one famous for its sea cucumbers, a popular Chinese delicacy.

In China, the far-eastern #Russian city of #Vladivostok has been known traditionally as #Haishenwai, meaning “sea-cucumber bay”. More to the point, as these patriots point out, it was once ruled by #China.

Amid the flourishing of Russia-China ties—said in a joint statement on March 22nd to have reached their “highest level in history”—a few Chinese have dared to recall how their country ceded vast swathes of territory, including Vladivostok, to the tsarist empire back in the 19th century. In the past month they have fumed on social media over the “unequal treaties” that wrested away this land.

Chinese maps from the 13th century show the area around Vladivostok as Yongmingcheng, and to this day the port itself is still called Hǎishēnwǎi alongside the Russian imperial name of Vladivostok. It is notable that public discourse on decolonization regularly avoids any mention of Russia’s continuing colonial occupation.

Chinese (and Korean) claims over the Russian Far East are significant. There was a substantial Chinese population in the Russian Far East until Soviet mass deportation to China; ethnic cleansing of the Far East peaked in the 1930s.

Before the Russian revolution, the Chinese made up 41% of the registered labor force in the then Amur and Primorsk oblasts. The actual number was likely higher as many Chinese did seasonal cross-border work as day laborers. Ethnic Russians were likely the minority, which is what drove Stalin, as always, to select the inhumane policy of mass expulsion to guarantee Russian supremacy.

Russia is rotting, giving China a huge range of options with its declining neighbor. If current trends persist, China can reasonably expect its old territories to one day fall into its lap. Chinese leaders may well have a better understanding of Russian decline than their Western counterparts.

Russia is not a superpower but is treated as a superpower, as a reminder - Russian GDP is only nine times greater than the revenues of the American retailer Costco. While he Chinese population is 10 times that of Russia. Chinese adjusted national wealth is more than 5.5 times that of Russia), the Communist party (CCP) is getting cheap oil and gas from Putin’s regime while helping to prop up a large, if failing, autocracy.

There is a reason why Russia constantly threatens the use of nuclear arms; the country is an economic dwarf compared to its geographical size.

For now, Vladivostok can continue under the Russian flag with the certain knowledge that one day it’s more than likely to become Hǎishēnwǎi, a city in China once again.

Here’s to seeing the reclaiming of Hǎishēnwǎi, the soon-to-be ex Naval fleet base of the Russian regime.

In 1858 the #Qing dynasty had a civil war, and Russia seized on the turmoil and seized a massive territory called Outer #Manchuria, agreed by treaty with Russia in 1860 - it surrender the territory which includes a vast coastline containing modern day #Vladivostok with it’s Russian #naval base HQ of the Pacific Fleet and nuclear submarines which depend on this port to operate anywhere in the #Pacific. When this territory reverts to China, the consequences include a catastrophic impact to resource revenues, and Russia will lose it’s only Naval HQ access point to the Pacific Ocean

The territory also includes important cities such as #Khabarovsk. This territory locks China out from access to the #SeaOfJapan and is equivalent to the size of #Ukraine. China views the 1860 treaty as a humiliation and an example of territories lost to foreign powers, and wants them back to end the humiliation.

I was in Vladivostok in February’22 - just prior to the RuZZian invasion - hadn’t previously appreciated its adjacency to N.Korea too! A weaker Russia would loose all that to China ( easier than Taiwan 🇹🇼)… & they would be completely screwed (Baltic/Black Sea compromised )

I think the fear of this territory reverting to China is what is keeping the US from fully supporting Ukraine
