  1. This guy gives a more honest and thorough appraisal of the situation and methods in Ukraine than any “professional” western journalist on the ground there has since the beginning of hostilities.

  2. Conscription and weapons are pretty standard in war for either side. If people are going to stay, it is situational as to whether they feel the need to have weapons. In war, the advancing enemy may not be all there is to worry about. Cities in the US loot and riot after winning a football championship, so imagine not arming the people under siege. In my opinion it is ok to hand out arms, and it is ok or even advisable for those people to not use them, but to just have them in case. You also must understand, not every unit in every army follows the same code of conduct. If I was in Ukraine, and received a weapon and ammo right now, I would be very happy to have one. Situational awareness is the #1 premium thing to have in Ukraine, and a weapon comes in at #2.

  3. To clear this up a bit:

    The man is Goncales Lira. He is a native Chilenean, living with his wife and two their two young kids in Kharkow (2. largest city of Ukraine). He is in tight telephone contact to his loved ones. He wenr to Kiew just before the outbrake of the battles. Now he is stuck in his hotel in the centre of Kiew. He is regularly now on the Duran website (also at Rumble) for updates and more informations he gets fromhis many friends inside Ukraine.

    His simple and clear explanations of the basic happenings will provoke a positve thinking process for all who stumble across his videos and comments on the situation. He must have lived in the US in the past for some time, because his American English speaking is very good.

  4. Good guy, good job! I’ve seen his videos on FB. Russian TV also have mentioned this guy 👍🔥
