An Ukrainian General Speaks His Mind

  Scott Ritter, interviewing Commander Khodakovsky, September 2022 …..

On episode 3 of the show we are joined by Alexander Khodakovsky, commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic’s «Vostok» Battalion. Former commander of Ukraine’s Alpha special unit of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU).

A COMMENT from Fair Dinkum …. who sent me this reference, 8 September 2022 

Interview with Alexander Khodakovsky, Commander of the Donetsk People’s Republic Battalion giving an update on what is currently occurring on the battlefield. It is not a voice found anywhere in the Western world. In the West, we only get Sir Winston Zelensky and the Ukrainian cheerleaders.  Khodakovsky comes across as rationale, honest, straightforward, professional, and with a curious mixture of humility and a fighting spirit.

A FURTHER NOTE from “Fair Dinkum,” 9 Septmber 2022
“Interesting to see three Indian nationals have now been placed on the Ukrainian “kill list” accused of being Russian propagandists and “information terrorists” including the former head of India’s National Security Advisory Board P.S. Raghavan — a retired foreign service officer who also served as India’s ambassador to Russia; journalist Saeed Naqvi and Sam Pitroda, a former adviser to Prime Ministers Rajiv Gandhi and Manmohan Singh.”

    I wonder what does ‘Fair Dinkum”s ‘Further Note’ of Sept 9 mean, when he indicates that 3 Indian nationals are in the Ukrainian ‘kill list’ accused of Russian propagandists. ‘Fair Dinkum’, being a Chinese apologist, should also be reminded that China’s leader Xi Jinping is siding with Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.
