Ukraine: What We Don’t Hear Matters More Than What We Hear
Since the events at the Ukrainian border started precipitating, I have been asked almost daily what my opinion is about the events that hit so close to my birth country. As a Romanian who immigrated to the USA about six years ago, I weigh very carefully the recent events.
I come from a nation that recently shed about 3 million had to work Romanians across the globe. Many of my friends – just like me – have left home behind and are now living in other countries. I have close family and dear friends living in Spain, Hungary, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, in England and in France, to mention just a few countries. I have family and friends still living back in Romania.
When it comes to information that is broadcasted through television, radio, and social media, what people might not realize fully is that some websites are available for America only (IPs are blocked) and the information cannot make it to Europe. At the same time, some European websites are blocked and cannot be accessed from the States. The illusion that we have free access to all the information that’s out there tonight is merely this: an illusion.
Back in Romania, during Ceausescu’s tyranny, we saw daily TV news shows that were not broadcasting the truth. “Fake media” is not an American invention. In the Western world, we are shocked that North Korea punishes with cruelty any photographers, news anchors, and citizens who publish photographs that are presenting the truth. As a Romanian, I can’t help but think – “Wow, socialists in North Korea actually allow people to own cameras? That’s a few cuts above Ceausescu’s regime!”
What the Western world cannot imagine can be done in a totalitarian regime, has been done and is being done for years. Some of us survived propaganda before, and have learned to recognize them.
What I know from my local friends and family in Romania is that the news outlets don’t speak in Romania too much about what happens in Ukraine. It’s actually quite a concealed piece of information. So it was actually from me that a number of Romanian friends have learned about it. My connections in Austria don’t know a whole lot about it. My friends in Spain don’t know too much about it either. On the other hand, American troops have already started arriving in Romania. I have little doubt that Romania would in the blink of an eye join the US; Romania had a very bitter almost 1/2 century experience with the Soviets in the past, as you may know.
What is not clear to me at all is that there is a real intensification of the military activity in the Ukrainian border area. Just because the Russians are there, it is not obvious that they are doing anything different than what they have been doing since 2014. – And I am not saying in any way that they are carrying on as usual with their war with Ukraine over Crimea and the access to the Black Sea. What I’m saying interviews and pictures presented by media in the States are not really proof of any intensification in their activity. It’s just the texts that are surrounding the video clips and the images that are suggesting this. I wonder if the Russians really are preparing something, or if the American media outlets are presenting the same state of affairs in a different light for one reason or another?
Another thing that is not clear to me is the Russian-Chinese relationship. It is quite secluded and secretive. It is a massive piece of the puzzle that is missing and without it, an accurate analysis is at least improbable, if not impossible.
What is clear to me is that the situation is getting very tense – it has been, for years, but now it only needs a spark to get the fire going. I also know that the first two World Wars started somewhat similarly. What I know about Russians, as people, is that their armies are absolutely cruel. A dear and older friend of mine was a child when the Soviets invaded Romania. She and her 5 sisters have been hidden for days in grain barrels, barely breathing under the grains, to avoid being raped and tortured by the Russian troops as they settled a transitory post in their parent’s home.
Japanese and Russian troops are to be feared more than other troops, on the ground, nevertheless their leaders. These two armies are the most heartless military groups, based both on historical accounts and first-hand experience. Other nations fear the American people because there is a rifle behind every blade of grass, but Americans don’t torture and rape and kill for fun. Americans kill clean, in general. But Russians destroy and enjoy the destruction before killing. So if it does come down to a war, it will be particularly bad for the civilians. (Isn’t it always?…)
As for the Russian military leaders, across the time I have listened to a number of interviews with their leaders. The magnitude of a paradigm shift from a world of clearly defined rules (including in war) to a fluid, undefined world (including in war) cannot be overstated. Russians have definitely played a key role in this paradigm shift.
The outcomes would be that there are no rules in war, friends and enemies have no identity and are easily interchangeable, multiple people know parts of the truth but nobody knows all the truth. The entire Russian international politics has been changed into a layered shadow game, intentionally, by the Russian leaders.
Whilst socialists, infiltrated as activists in America for dodgy movements (like modern feminists, BLM, Moms Demand Action, Food Justice warriors, etc.) were teaching America’s sons to “get in touch with their feelings”, back at home the Russians were working hard at reshaping the political strategy landscape. I shall be very interested to see exactly just how many modern American feminists “don’t need a man to protect them” when the Russian military-style rape feasts begin – if God forbid we’ll have to go through such horrific experiences. Many will regret the massive feminization propaganda our American men have been subjected to in the last half-century…
So I don’t know what Russia is doing. I don’t think anyone knows what Russia is doing. I don’t think Russia knows what Russia is doing. I think a very very limited handful of people know what Russia is doing. Whoever else knows something, knows exactly and only what Russia wants them to know. Everything else is speculation at this point and will only be known post factum. I think we’ll just have to wait and see, be prepared for the worst, and hope for the best.
We know that the first two World Wars started under false pretenses, and the real reason for both wars has come to light after many years. When the waters are muddy, no one can see and everyone is panicking. Panicked people are easy to be led, be it to war or to socialism. Another thing that we know about the two World Wars is that Russia has been at the center of them. It just so happened.
Or, this whole thing might just be yet another distraction.
In any case, what I would teach my kids in these times are the following:
1. Don’t allow yourself to be led.
What you see on TV, and read in newspapers (both left and right-leaning!) might not be true. It might be made up at least partially. Also, just because one news outlet is telling the truth once, it doesn’t mean that they always will. Question everything.
2. Be slow to anger.
Be slow to anger because you can’t see and hear with your own eyes what is happening with the Russians and with the American troops; be slow to anger. But when it is time to get angry, be very angry – on the right people, not at the people other people tell you to be angry at.
3. Your power and freedom can simply not be taken away.
Regardless of how much power someone else ends up having over you, you still have more power over yourself than they do. You only stop being free when you accept the chains. You can live free or you can die. Living in chains is not an option.
4. Memorize the Bible. You will need it.
There’s nothing that makes people run to whatever God they believe in like pain. Excruciating pain gives birth to a painful search for God. Keep the powder dry, the Bible in mind, and in the pocket, a rifle on the shoulder.
5. You are not safe.
As the great classic Rick Grimes says in “The Walking Dead”: “You are not safe. Not many how many people are around, no matter how clear the area looks, no matter what anyone says, no matter what you think, you are not safe. It only takes one second, one second, and it’s over. Never let your guard down, ever.”
Maybe if Constitutional Americans wouldn’t let their guard down, we wouldn’t be here. Or maybe we would have been here earlier, and with a different attitude. Who knows?…

As I have mentioned a few days ago in this article, I was REALLY skeptical regarding what the media is saying in the States about what is going on at the border between Ukraine and Russia. So I contacted a good friend of mine who works in the Romanian military (this year his rank will change from under-officer to officer within the Secret Operations in the Romanian Military).
Turns out, as you will read later in this article and as you will see in the video compilation, that some of the footage that is shown as proof of something happening at the Ukraine / Russian border, are actually videos that have been recorded by the Romanian Ministry of National Defense during the Romanian training.
Someone fished them and leaked them with the fake news that Romania is getting ready to go to war and that the footage is from the Ukrainian border with Russia. Keep reading, this is getting better by the minute. My friend never shares more than he can; if I ask him something that he can’t share, he simply says that that information is classified and he can’t share it, and that’s totally fine. But whenever he shares something, I know it’s true. Like always, he mentioned that I need to go read the official page of the Romanian Department of Defense. The infamous border where this Third World War between Ukraine and Russia is supposed to be happening soon is about 185 from Bucharest, the capital of Romania.
My friend – who obviously wished to stay anonymous – is active military, stationed in the heart of Bucharest. When I called him, he was on holiday, building sandcastles with his kid on a lake’s shore, while his pregnant gorgeous wife was cooking a barbecue with her parents a few feet away. That’s just how worried the Romanian military is about the war about to start happening in their back yard… The gist of what he said is this (and I am relating what I am able to remember, provided he doesn’t write but prefers phone conversations).
Here’s what he had to say: Yes, there is more military activity in the area, because the Russians are exercising ON THEIR OWN LAND, in the vicinity of the border. There’s no denying that the war that started in 2014 with the annexation of Crimea is bothering the Russians, but then again, this is not new news. The Russians have always exercised in random parts of Russia. As soon as Crimea was annexed to Russia, the Ukrainians, who still had the key to the City Water tap decided Russians don’t need water, so they shut off the entire water system. Yes, Russians were bothered, and still are, but that doesn’t mean that anyone in Russia is looking for a hot war. Russia is just flexing the muscles, trying to impress.
Apparently, even if Putin would get this idea of a new hot war in his head, no one from his cabinet, retired or active, is supporting it. The only thing that changed in Romania from a military point of view is that the alertness level on the Defense Ministry Website went from “LOW” to “AWARE”. And that is not going to change, because the Russians IN COLLABORATION WITH OTHER NATIONS that have access to the Black Sea and along the border with Ukraine are planning on being there for a while.
Americans have also sent a few troops there – and I am not sure about the numbers, however, their role is exclusively to flex muscles back to the Russians. If the big meathead in the gym starts flexing muscles at the hot gal you both like, you will flex back at him, of course, but just because two dudes are flexing muscles it doesn’t mean that the gal (Ukraine) will finally decide on one, and it also doesn’t mean that after the training is over the two dudes are going to fight. (And btw, Ukraine is a naughty gal flirting both with NATO and Russia forever. This is also not new.)
Below, a few recent articles published on the Romanian Ministry of National Defense page, regarding how fake news is generated. I have translated them, but you can read them in Romanian. This is the link with all the military news in Romanian –
(Click on the INFORADAR tab on the Romanian Ministry of National Defense to go to the military news page that I linked a few rows above.) ………………………………………………………………………….
On 4th December 2021, the Romanian Ministry of National Defense published: “Huge military traffic on Otopeni!” FAKE NEWS(* note: “Otopeni” is the largest military airport/ transit area in Bucharest) We report fake news distributed on social networks. The information in this post has nothing to do with reality. Find practical tips on how to avoid misinformation on this platform. We reiterate our urge that you get your information from official sources.
On 12th December 2021, the Romanian Ministry of National Defense published: Romanian-Ukrainian Military Cooperation in an article published in the Romanian press, there are references made to a so-called deployment of Romanian soldiers and combat equipment on Ukrainian territory.
The information has nothing to do with reality. The Ministry of National Defense has not carried out and does not carry out such suggested missions or actions in Ukraine. In the field of defense, the Romanian-Ukrainian cooperation relations are conducted in a transparent manner, bilaterally, in regional formats, as well as within international organizations, especially under the auspices of the North Atlantic Alliance, based on the NATO-Ukraine Partnership.
Bilaterally, the cooperation between the two armies is materialized through joint training actions, which take place on the territory of Romania or the territory of Ukraine, within bilateral or international exercises planned and communicated in a transparent manner. Details about these exercises can be found on the website of the Ministry of National Defense, by consulting the archive of press releases issued by the institution.
The bilateral framework for cooperation in this field was deepened during the last meeting between the Romanian and Ukrainian defense ministers, held in Bucharest on September 5, 2020, during which a governmental agreement was signed in the field of technical-military cooperation. The agreement will help strengthen bilateral cooperation by creating the necessary legal framework for institutions and businesses in the two countries to develop joint projects in areas such as the acquisition, repair, and modernization of weapons and military equipment, research and development in the technical-military field, and the exchange of information and experience in the standardization, coding and quality control of military equipment.
On the 26th of January 2022, the Romanian Ministry of National Defense published: Watch out for viral clips with military columns
In recent days, on various social media platforms, video recordings have been circulating with so-called recent trips through our country of columns of Romanian or foreign military vehicles. These records are presented as “evidence” of troop movements in connection with the situation in Ukraine. None of these records are recent. They were filmed in the past, at least three or four months, either by us or by other users.
In fact, many of those who watched these videos (intentionally made viral through software – not organic growth – in order to induce panic), noticed the discrepancies: some clips were filmed in the summer, or they are showing something else than what they are declared to show, or they are old recordings presented as recent.
We made, in the video below, a recapitulation of these attempts to distort reality, with the date at which they were really captured. Note that the only recent images in this collage (January 22, 2022) are a demilitarized World War II tank company imported from Bulgaria by a Czech company. They obviously had to pass through Romania. You will see them at the end of the video collage. This transit of demilitarized vehicles was also shared on social media with the intent to get the population confused and panicked, under the pretense of unannounced movements of the troops.
We remind you that the most accurate information is from official sources. If you notice other such video recordings, please mail them to us via this page. We will conduct efficient checks to get back with the truth about the origin of the clips.
Then, on the 27th of January 2022, the Romanian Ministry of National Defense published: False news generated by the distribution in the online environment of a fake military order calling for the mobilization of the Romanian military reserve to war. We are reporting a series of false, alarmist news, generated by the distribution in the online environment of an order calling for mobilization or war.
The document, in fact real, was issued to one citizen from Brăila, and then it was presented as so-called proof of “the preparations that the Romanian Army is making to mobilize the reservists”. The document was issued as a result of a routine procedure carried out by the Brăila military center, in accordance with the legal attributions of this structure (Law no. 446 of November 30, 2006, on preparing the population for defense, art. 51).
The release of this document was carried out following the simple procedures of updating the records of the military reserve and has nothing to do with the security situation on the borders of Ukraine. Annually, the county or district military centers issue several thousand such documents to the military reserves, depending on the need of updating the database.
Military notice sent to a reserve military person asked them to confirm their info in the Military database.
The Routine procedure was misinterpreted intentionally by panicking trolls as a call to enrollment for war.
If you notice similar information, please send it to us for verification and clarification. We remind you that the most effective information is from official sources.
Last but not least, whoever has the desire to panic Americans, Romanians, and people in general regarding the Ukrainian border went so far as they created a fake account for General Daniel Petrescu, the head of the Romanian Ministry of National Defense. On the 2nd of February 2022, the Romanian Ministry of National Defense published: Fake Facebook account, a copy of General Daniel Petrescu’s Real Account.
Please be aware of the existence of a fake Facebook account under the name of General Daniel Petrescu, which the Chief of Defense has nothing to do with. The fake id was fabricated based on information and photos taken from the official Facebook page of the Chief of Defense that can be accessed here, or from other sources.
Today, the person hiding behind this fake is distributing posts claiming to be on behalf of the Ministry of Defense Chief and of the National Guard. Please disregard them and if you see this information in your feed, please do report it. Unfortunately, although fake news is not a novelty in interpersonal communication, have found limitless ways to become viral and multiply in the online environment. The Romanian Army is one of the many public institutions actively involved in fighting against this phenomenon. We remind you to look for news in official sources, whether regarding the Romanian Army or anything else that interests you. It takes a common effort to not allow ourselves to be manipulated by fake news.
Just so that you know, America is not the only country in which information went hay-wire.
On Sunday, January 16, 2022, 11:54:54 PM PST, my brother who lives in Romania, wrote: “Hey, I heard some rumors that all unvaccinated people in the States are meeting somewhere in WA state? Sounds quite sci-fi, I am skeptical about it, but I heard something similar about Australia. I thought that I should reach out, even if it’s fake news, and see if you know anything about it?” I replied that I didn’t hear any of that, but I will look up info and see if it’s true that WA is on the way to becoming an un-vaxxed safe zone, as the news back in Europe made it all sound.
On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, 09:45:44 AM PST, he wrote again: “Found any info? Everything okay there? Streets burning, people fighting at all?”
Apparently, they’re showing riot news back in Romania, supposedly from WA state. Just so you know, no one is out in the streets, burning buildings (as spurring as that is!), and WA state is not turning into the USA capital of the unvaccinated folk. On the other hand, here in the States, we are now bombarded with news about the Russians at the border with Ukraine. Fake news, that is. We really need to stop trusting anything that we hear in mainstream media or social media. About anything. We need to start watching the news like we watch sci-fi movies because that’s what they are. One last note – my Romanian friend, the one who works in the Military, mentioned in passing that the only reason why the American media is creating a buzz around the Ukrainian border is that they need to taper out the overused COVID news.
They can’t replace it with anything, they need to have something that they hook people on, otherwise, how are people going to live in fear and why would they tune in to the news next time? Remember, SCARED PEOPLE ARE EASY TO LED. So you actually need to be scared, in order to be led. STOP. TRUSTING. THE. NEWS. And know what? I actually want to go back and talk about how the government wants to make us think that it’s A-ok to exclude a group from society. Let’s talk about that. What’s the deal with the mandatory vaccination rumors?
What’s with the large-capacity magazine ban that’s happening in secret in WA state as we peel our eyes to footage that is not even recent??? Let’s not worry about the Ukraine border and the water tap and the gas tap in East Europe. Let’s hold accountable those who force choices on other people here in our own dear land, shall we?
As a Norwegian having lived through a 5-year occupation by Germans and Nazis, I do not want this to happen again ANYWHERE. As I write, it is exactly 82 years since I woke up early morning to explosions and military aircraft flying overhead.
The most sickening was the appearance of Hitler supporters, titled Nazis, in Norway led by Vidkun Quisling, but we also had real HEROS based up in the Norwegian mountains communicating with England by air, parachute, and sea by clandestine fishing boats. Also "The Heroes of Telemark", prevented the Germans from acquiring ´heavy water´ (to produce the first atom bomb) from one of our largest hydropower stations. Our motto was then "God save the King"!
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
