Amnesty International: Ukraine Uses Children as Human Shields

Amnesty International Admits Ukraine is Using Children as Human Shields

The Ukrainians are committing war crimes against their own people, Amnesty International has revealed.

 
 
 

Amnesty International has admitted that Ukraine is using children and other civilians as human shields in its war against Russia, launching attacks from populated areas and turning schools, hospitals, and homes into military outposts; all things that Amnesty International says constitute a violation of humanitarian law.

Amnesty International is frequently cited by the globalist class as the foremost organization on human rights and has been openly in favor of taking down Russia and its President, Vladimir Putin. However, a recent admission by the globally-operating NGO sheds light on the human shield tactics that Ukraine is using as the war with Russia drags on.

 

 “Ukrainian forces have put civilians in harm’s way by establishing bases and operating weapons systems in populated residential areas, including in schools and hospitals, as they repelled the Russian invasion that began in February,” Amnesty International said in a statement that was released in August 2022 but received little media coverage.

“Such tactics violate international humanitarian law and endanger civilians, as they turn civilian objects into military targets,” Amnesty International’s statement went on, before admitting that many of the civilian casualties reported in the Russo-Ukrainian War come as a direct result of Ukraine’s human shield tactics.

“We have documented a pattern of Ukrainian forces putting civilians at risk and violating the laws of war when they operate in populated areas.”

Furthermore, Amnesty International says that it investigated numerous Russian strikes in Ukraine, that have been labeled as attacks on civilians, but found that wasn’t the case and that Ukrainian forces had made deliberate military use of residential areas.

 

“Throughout these investigations, researchers found evidence of Ukrainian forces launching strikes from within populated residential areas as well as basing themselves in civilian buildings in 19 towns and villages,” in the Donbas, Kharkiv, and Mykolaiv regions, all of which have experienced intense combat since Russia’s Special Military Operation began.

Most of these civilian sites, Amnesty International said, were located several kilometers away from the front lines and were used to launch artillery strikes and stage troops.

“Survivors and witnesses of Russian strikes…told Amnesty International researchers that the Ukrainian military had been operating near their homes around the time of the strikes, exposing the areas to retaliatory fire from Russian forces,” the statement reads.

Disturbingly, Amnesty International described the Ukrainian military’s use of schools as military outposts as “routine,” reporting that when Amnesty International researchers visited 29 different Ukrainian schools, they found Ukrainian military personnel and their armaments at 22 of them.

Amnesty International’s Secretary General, Agnès Callamard, concluded that “the Ukrainian government should immediately ensure that it locates its forces away from populated areas, or should evacuate civilians from areas where the military is operating.”

According to the Amnesty International statement, Ukraine’s government did not respond to an inquiry related to their use of schools, hospitals, and homes as combat outposts.

    Not sure where else to put this, but the West using children as shields at war applies the culture wars, too. One of the most infuriating aspects of radical leftism is their immature obsession with sex.

    In effect, which is all that matters in the end, they have made sex the only aim in life. Its undeniable, look at all of their marquee political “issues”, abortion – sex, homosexuality – sex, “trans”/drag – sex.

    It paints a very disturbing and sobering picture of the kind of people we’re up against. From a practical perspective, I’m wondering – am I the only one that has loved and lost?

    There’s something deeply flawed and demonic about this sexual obsession and when I trace it to its roots the face that stares back is ugly and evil. As tongue-tied as this following explanation seems to be I see no other way to describe our situation. Sex is an appetite that knows no bounds. Therefore, people can become easily ensnared by it. But that’s only one aspect of it.

    When its combined with pride, narcissism, and ego, the face becomes ever more contorted and twisted – it is the most grotesque aspect of mankind.

    Sex today is gloating. The aggregated societal ethos reduces to – look at me, I’m having sex, and, guess what, you can’t have it with me – because I’m better than you. This is the sort of mentality we find among self-conscious middle school girls. But, its now our highest aim.

    The feminine persona that has usurped our society is the source, which makes it all the more detestable. For we once looked to the feminine to temper our desires and it did. Maternal consideration overtook fleeting impulse. But, today, that noble feminine spirit has given way to depravity.

    As a former fornicator, I don’t yearn for my days as a single man. I recall the pain that accompanied the mating rituals of the day. When you have a loved and lost, sex becomes even more painful. No matter how pornographic society becomes or how “open” it is to sexuality, you can’t separate the intimacy, indeed extreme intimacy, that occurs between a man and a woman in coitus. Yes, you can momentarily cover it up in the same way you can cover up any other disturbing event in life, but, the bill comes due eventually.

    I look at things like temperance, prudence, purity, and chastity, as truly progressive developments. Gratititious and ubiquitous sex, in contrast, damages people in profound ways. It does not only stimulate but, reminds people of their inadequacy but it’s like a twisting knife. Its agony. Pain that under ordinary conditions, would have been dealt with had it not been for the constant imposed reminders by our culture.

    Above all, I feel most sympathetic to people who are not sexually successful – for they are the ones that suffer the most.

    A common refrain I hear from places like public schools is “well half the kids are sexually active…”. My response is, what about the other half? By institutionalizing sex you legitimized those that are active and discard those that are not. And when you appreciate the profound personal indictment that occurs when you’re left out of the sexual excess – you can’t help, so long as you’re human, to feel remorse.

    All of this comes from the political side that passionately claims it is empathetic and compassionate. This gross hypocrisy is very hard to deal with.

    And so I’m left wondering, am I the only one that has loved and lost? Because, it cuts deep. And deep cuts lead to suffering and suffering leads to wisdom. And the wisdom from this sort of experience leads inextricably to a mature relationship to sex. This is what our society desperately needs right now.

    • “There’s something deeply flawed and demonic about this sexual obsession
      and when I trace it to its roots the face that stares back is ugly and evil.”

      What is particularly unappetising about it is that it is
      (and is intended to be) unfruitful; and where it is not so,
      murder of the fruit thereof is the routinely offered remedy.

  2. ICC’s Putin arrest warrant based on State
    Dept-funded report that debunked itself

    ‘ The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin, accusing him of the “unlawful deportation” of Ukrainian children to a network of camps inside Russia. The warrant was based on a report by the Yale HRL center, which is funded by the US State Department.
    US journalist Jeremy Loffredo visited one of Russian government-sponsored camps in question. At The Donbas Express, located just outside of Moscow, Loffredo met youth from war-torn regions who were flourishing thanks to free music instruction, and grateful to be in a secure environment. This article features his exclusive video report.
    A Grayzone review of the Yale HRL report found the paper’s content contradicted many claims contained in the ICC warrant. It also undercut incendiary statements its director, Nathaniel Raymond, issued during media appearances.
    In an interview with Loffredo, Yale HRL’s Raymond further contradicted allegations he made in a CNN interview about a massive “hostage situation” underway in Russia, acknowledging that most of the camps he researched were “teddy bear”-like cultural programs. He also disclosed his collaboration with US intelligence.

    A Guide to Understanding the Hoax of the Century

    https://www.tabletmag.com/sections/news/articles/guide-understanding-hoax-century-thirteen-ways-looking-disinformation

    Outstanding article and a must read if anyone really wants to get a cohesive understanding of what has transpired. It dovetails precisely into the article someone posted a while back – maybe on another forum – of how Obama ratcheted up the Patriot Act to weaponize the entire intelligence apparatus against Americans.

    The fascists never polled more than 3% in Ukranian elections.

    • So? Zelensky was elected on a program of peace with Russia.
      The fascists told him there would be no peace with Russia.
      Did Zelensky enact the mandate or follow the fascists?

    • And yet they spearheaded the coup d’etat and were completely infiltrated into the Ukrainian armed forces. Moreover, it matters whom you consider “fascists”. Pravy Sektor certainly qualifies. Svoboda would also in many eyes.

      https://freedomhouse.org/report/analytical-brief/2018/far-right-extremism-threat-ukrainian-democracy

      Svoboda got close to 5% in parliamentary elections after the coup and has polled at over 7 percent. That’s just one fascist group. Bear in mind, these are Western sources which have an interest in playing down the fascist aspect. After the coup, the criminals who governed actually began to implement fascist policies which weaned support from the more overt groups.

      It’s all a nasty cesspool after the coup.
