Falklands government and community fundraising in support of Ukraine

The war in Ukraine is at the forefront of our minds in the Falkland Islands community, not least as it brings back strong memories of 40 years ago, when our peaceful home was also invaded by a hostile neighbor, intent on seizing land and assuming sovereignty, without concern for the safety, security or rights of the people living here.

    Nice initiative...

    - I dare assume that..., at the forefront of your minds in the Falkland Islands community is also the plight of the about 4,000,000 souls of the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts whose homes have been bombed the last eight years by a hostile neighbor, without concern for the lives or rights of the people living there...

    - Let's hope that your hard earned charity monies end into the pockets on the now ruling third generation of filty rich, corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs and not into buying arms to kill minorities...

    Wot, like Kharkiv, a mainly Russian speaking city with a 25.6% ethnic Russian population, or Mariupol with 44.4% ethnic Russian population, both currently under siege and heavy bombardment by the Russian army, where both groups, Ukrainian and Russian, are fiercely resisting all attempts by the Russian army to ‘liberate’ them.

    No doubt film of the destroyed cities and scattered body parts will be show in Russia as evidence of ‘ethnic violence’ against the Russian minority.

    Like the shelling along the line of control in the Donbas, which was overwhelmingly coming from the Russian side, not least because the Ukrainians simply didn’t have the ammunition available even to reply.

    Had the Russians confined themselves to just ‘liberating’ the Donbas region, they wouldn’t be in the sh*t they are now, both in the Ukraine and with the rest of the world.

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story, eh.

    To them generous Kelpers for whom “the war in Ukraine is at the forefront of their minds”

    - Continuing my above thread about you Kelpers hard earned charity monies possibly ending into the pockets of the ruling third generation of filty rich, corrupt Ukrainian oligarchs..., It has been just confirmed on Italian National TV..., that our New Young World Class Hero, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy..., is the happy owner of a 4,000,000€ villa at Forte dei Marmi..., some 100km from my humble Italian abode....

    - Unconfirmed yet is the result of the Italian “Guardia di Finanza” ongoing investigation of an alleged 48,000,000€ loan given to his missus..., Olena Zelenska...

    Keep you informed...Chays...

    Continues from above...:

    -”A former comedian, Zelenskyy was elected president in 2019 on promises to fight corruption and reduce the influence of oligarchs in the ex-Soviet country...
    - But the files obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and published on Sunday claimed that Zelenskyy and his partners established a network of offshore companies back in 2012...
    - The Pandora Papers are based on documents leaked to the ICIJ and exposed the offshore dealings of kings, presidents and prime ministers, including Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis and Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
    According to its findings, two of the offshore companies belonging to Zelenskyy’s partners were used to buy three lavish properties in central London...
    - The report also found that Zelenskyy, just before he was elected, transferred his stake in one of the offshore companies to his top aide Serhiy Shefir – the target of a shooting attack last month...”

    There is tons more of auld, verified info o the Internet about this Zelenskyy crook..., chays...
    -My advice to you...?
    Google it before transfering him any monies...

    -My second advice to you...?
    -Donate all what you can to the International Red Cross/Ukraine...
    -I know that many of you Kelpers dislike them because they did their job in them Windblown Islands without letting your biased whinging affect their decisions...

    Exactly therefore...

    By the way..., “Falklands government and community fundraising in support of Ukraine...”

    When this sad Slavic-Rus story recedes..., you better have saved some of your Pirate Fishing Licenses on the Argentinean Sea Monies to donate to the victims of the next..., long planned compasionate, humanitarian, democratic expedition of the haughty Five Blind Eyes Anglosphere...

    Gauchito Drink does in fact support theft, torture and murder. Especially when he can watch the pain of his victims on television. ;)
