Ukraine’s foreign minister called for an investigation into the documentary, which found that most military aid wasn’t making it to the frontlines
Originally published on AntiWar
CBS News retracted a documentary it briefly released on Sunday after pressure from the Ukrainian government. The original documentary (watch it here) CBS put out examined the flow of military aid to Ukraine and quoted someone familiar with the process who said in April that only 30% of the arms were making it to the frontline.
‘All of this stuff goes across the border, and then something happens, kind of like 30% of it reaches its final destination,’ said Jonas Ohman, the founder of Blue-Yellow, a Lithuania-based organization that CBS said has been meeting with and supplying frontline units with aid in Ukraine since the start of the war in the Donbas in 2014. ’30-40%, that’s my estimation,’ Ohman said.
After the documentary sparked outrage from the Ukrainian government, it was removed from the internet by CBS. In an editor’s note, CBS said it changed the article that was published with the documentary and that the documentary itself was being ‘updated.’
The editor’s note also insisted that Ohman has said the delivery of weapons in Ukraine has ‘significantly improved’ since he filmed with CBS back in April, although he didn’t offer a new estimate on the percentage of arms being delivered.
The editor’s note also said that the Ukrainian government noted US defense attaché Brig. Gen. Garrick M. Harmon arrived in Kyiv in August for ‘arms control and monitoring.’ Defense attachés are military officers stationed at US embassies that represent the Pentagon’s interests in the country. Previously, it was unclear if there was any sort of military presence at the US embassy in Kyiv after it reopened in May.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said the retraction by CBS was not enough and called for an investigation into the documentary. ‘Welcome first step, but it is not enough … There should be an internal investigation into who enabled this and why,’ he wrote on Twitter.
In the documentary, Ohman described the corruption and bureaucracy that he has to work around to deliver aid to Ukraine. ‘There are like power lords, oligarchs, political players,’ he said. ‘The system itself, it’s like,’ We are the armed forces of Ukraine. If security forces want it, well, the Americans gave it to us. ‘It’s kind of like power games all day long, and so eventually people need the stuff, and they go to us.’
Other reporting has shown that there is virtually no oversight for the billions of dollars in weapons that the US and its allies are pouring into Ukraine. CNN reported in April that the US has ‘almost zero’ ability to track the weapons it is sending once they enter Ukraine. One source briefed on US intelligence described it as dropping the arms into a “big black hole.’

Gravitas TV just showed US colonel Mcgregor openly admitting that US officers are directly targeting Russia now.
The New York Times notes, “Ukraine now possesses long range weapons that can reach the Crimean peninsula”. It also noted that Russian air defences are very weak and the long range himars operated by US contract officers easily evaded sleeping Russian defences and completely destroyed the base. Over a dozen SU-24 were destroyed along with all aviation fuel for the region. Meanwhile, due to Russian inability to target Kiev, life goes on as normal in all of western Ukraine as Zelensky is boasting that he will attack Moscow soon.

US has been planning to destroys Russia Ukraine EU and China even EU because EU is competitor of US trade 😆
EU is already occupied by US and Zionist warmongers. Russia also has a very heavy Jew penetration in every orifice. The biggest internal evil both the Muslims and Orthodox face is Jew evil in their midst. Ukraine is no different than Zionist occupation of Palestine engineered by the devious Brits in 1948 to sow eternal conflict among the Arabs. Anglo-global Zionism is using Jew scum like Zelensky, who is not even Ukrainian, to sow conflict amongst the Slavs who are killing each other as Jews profit from these wars. Do you see any Jew parasite dying in either Ukraine or Gaza? NO, only Slavic and Palestinian women and children.
(J)EU is already a JUSA fake jew pedophile reseters construction from the beggining. Start with Marshall plan.
Blue – Yellow – Poof!!!!!!! AKA Influencer Marketing, AKA Sock Puppets. Another EU funded NGO that is used for self-propaganda and to transfer taxpayers money to personal accounts. That Jonas is just another Lithuanian swindler pretending to be Swedish while he is not, and pretending ex-military while he is not. From a country of thieves. Less than 1% reaches Ukraine.
In the meantime, how much of Ukraine has shrunk, including what he has sold to Poland, for personal gain?
Will he attack Moscow? Ahahahaha! What nonsense! He can’t even win his Ukrainian Kherson from the Russians!

They are so desperate to kick off a World War, whether with Russia or China. Fortunately both Russia and China are full aware of the fact. Plenty more ways to kill a cat, than what the cat wishes for.
US is continuously probing the Russian fury threshold by deploying escalatory schemes that one day RF forces would be left with no other option but to directly target the hostile structures of NATO.
Military Academy gives you a virtual medal for that analysis. It’s exactly that thing. They even instruct Ze fag puppet to bomb Zaporodjie nuclear plant in specific locations, not to damage the nuclear core itself but to damage the silos with the nuclear ‘coke’, to provoke some ambiental catastrophe and to provoke global fury against Russia.
Yes , it’s obvious , they keep upping the ante, I am afraid the crazy bastards in Washington will take us all the way , to world war. They will not, they cannot, accept defeat .
A very good insight given by Col Doug McGregor who stated that RF forces were chilling and taking a short break as part of its planned juggernaut blitz against AFU soon to take place after realising that none of its adversaries are interested to settle the crisis on diplomatic terms..
Yesterday attack of Krimeea Novofedorovka was an attack of JUSA pilots using romanian modified MIG and secrets stolen by the polish garbage. Same was the use the AGM 88 antiradar missile. It’s no problem for the Russia to change the config code of transponders (and they already done that), but the NATO sorosist brigands will continue to use this method only from Romania over Black Sea flight path, very close to hohol seashore, to aim Kherson area targets.
colonel Mcgregor . Rare breed , knows what he’s talking about and not afraid to say it . The man has integrity .
CBS – bunch of paid pussies, sold their soul to the devil. History will remember it cowards.
Most of US and western MSM is Jew owned propaganda machine and that is why they can’t stand the truth and ban all independent media, they even tried to ban SF, but failed. All Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah and even Chinese media is banned in the US and its Euro trash vassals.
Entire JEU is a JUSA big colony from beginning, means Marshall project. The fake jews owns at least 50% of the entire.
Russia is pussy as NATO attacks Crimea airbase and Russia sulks as people in Kiev enjoy McDonald big mac.
nato attack Cuba also—you are cia moron….every attack on Russian base in Syria repelled by Russian defenses…Crimea defenses more advanced….stop swallowing CIA saperm
My son needs a new dildo as the pale , stale Anglo boyfriend left with anal rupture by using third rate British LGBT dildos. What is a woman to do with such a useless queer?
US has been killing 7million of innocent peoples in the Middle East and Donbas lol 😜
Zelensky will win and take over Russia.
VERY PERCEPTIVE OF THIS JENS character regarding Ziolensky triomphans. Can we expect the ‘ Sned ‘with equal chutzpah to announce that pigs will be next to fly to and jump over the moon
well, lets not forget what they did in Vietnam and Hiroshima.
The Anglo-Zionists and Euro trash have killed at least 50 million women and children in Africa and enslaved them, 6 million Koreans, 8 million Vietnamese and over 4 million Arabs from Iraq to Syria and a million Afghans and the list of NATO war crimes is unending.
Plus 56 million american indigenous peoples from own sorosist cabal media: https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/01/world/european-colonization-climate-change-trnd/index.html
“enjoy McDonald big mac” lol, so you mean they are eating genetically modified food with addition of sugar , fucking their own cholesterol levels and consuming carcinogen toxins. Well then Russia does NOT need to bomb Kiev – they are killing themselves already.
Nobody should eat the Mc Donald ratpoison and DNA altering shit.
“the problem with amerikans is not Orwellian it is huxleyan:: amerikans love their oppression”. Neil Postman
Why did you decide that NATO is attacking Crimea? Maybe you have a video of missiles falling on Crimea? So show them to us! Or do you just have a weakened brain and you are talking nonsense? Russia does not envy Kiev, because McDonald’s sold all its establishments to a Russian businessman with a promise to return and buy them back when everything calms down, but for now they will continue to work in Russia but under a different brand.
Is anyone seriously surprised? Because of US and nato interference, Ukraine is now a hell hole. Soon Ukraine will cease to exist and Ukrainians can put the blame for that onto western politicians, their arms industry, their media industry, and the UN.
Banning this documentary will ensure it is seen by everyone.
Western media is told incessant lies by the Jew controlled MSM and once in a while they slip up and a veneer of truth get through, but then it is immediately banned. The hypocrites in the west even went total retard by even banning the Alpabet Z or V as it is used as a Russian tactical group identification insignia. In US occupied Germany even journalists are jailed for reporting the truth about Don Bas Nazi atrocities and crimes against ethnic Russians and minorities. The BBC and most US MSM like ABC, NBC and CBS just push deliberate lies and Russophobia. The rat faced Zelenksy hiding in a basement is now being turned into a children’s “hero” figure. Russia should have killed the bastard the first day.
A 6-inch (15-cm) tall clay prototype of the Zelensky action figure, molded by Seattle artist Mike Leavitt, a self promoting Zionist will be mass produced in plastic and marketed to US and EU schools by a joint CIA and MOSSAD psy-op plan to brainwash the next western populations into racist Russophobia.
Graham Phillips the British reporter who has lived in Donbass has had his bank account frozen and his assets seized,for reporting the truth from Donbass,he would probably be arrested if he returned to the UK,but he may return to take legal action against the British Regime,and while all this is going on not a bloody word from the MSM whores or any Politician, same with Assange,its fascism pure and simple.
The MSM whores will one day take note, when the people spontaneously explode. Some won’t be able to get out of the way fast enough. Our ‘national treasures’ will run for their very substantial hidy holes after telling decades of lies to the public.
Karma is calling.
AMEN ! May GOD hear that !
but Britian could not even be bothered to make a phone call to support their nationals in Russia.
If agitational propaganda is so bad, why do you still follow it and keep perpetually expecting it to do a right thing?
You will never find a righteous one between parasytes. Yapping holes are paid to lie. Nobody hires a yapping hole to tell the Truth.
Stop being a follower and start taking responsibilty for yourself. Start reading Aristotle, First Principles.
Would that be the mincer version, or the full blown cocaine addict narcissist?
Maybe this ‘action’ figure will actually be used as a buttplug.
Absolutely. It’s the “Streisand Effect”. By banning it, they are actually promoting it.
The way those bastards are acting Ukraine doesn’t deserve to exist,Russia should up the anti mobilize and just take Eastern Ukraine up to the Dnieper,then the Nazis can fester in the West of Ukraine,and if they don’t behave Russia should destroy them and take it up to the Polish border.
After the strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, up to 70% of the personnel (of the 56th Brigade AFU) were destroyed, the Russian Defense Ministry reported. The Russian army destroyed the German ZRPC “Cheetah”. ▪️3 Ukrainian Air Force planes were shot down in the Mykolaiv region. A Ukrainian ammunition depot was destroyed in the DPR. ▪️Russian air defenses shot down 9 drones and intercepted 7 HIMARS MLRS shells.
The even bigger story is the story of Jonas Ohman, either Swedish or Lithuanian, ex-military, who back in 2014 was in bed with Aidar in the Donbass. He is also referred to in connection with Southfront’s reporting on the tale of the two captured Americans in Kharkov region back in June. His pop-up “Blue/Yellow” seems to be, or is no different from, any of the other numerous NGOs, which are cut-outs, or fronts, for spooks and foreign govt’s getting in on the action, better stoking the fires and starting them. FFS, Jonas Ohman is prominently listed as an OTAN “Partner of Peace”.
While they want to liken Ohman to a selfless humanitarian, like Clara Barton of the Amerikan red crosse, he’s, in my mind, just another Ollie North.
Ex-military? More like I take dicks in my ass for any amount of money.
On how cuckold-libtard governments work, read this paper: “SOCK PUPPETS: How the government lobbies itself and why” by Christopher Snowdon.
Are this hiwis scum masters of the World?Kuleba is ordering CBS to investigate their own employee!
Ukraine’s richest mineral deposits worth at least $12.4 trillion are now in the hands of Russia, writes The Washington Post.
We are talking about 63% of all coal deposits, 11% of its oil, 20% of gas, 42% of metals and 33% of rare earth elements. Since February, the Russians have seized deposits of titanium, zirconium, lithium, strontium, uranium.
Can Ukraine stop losing with so much humiliation?
And they lost the entire Sea of Azov. That area will NEVER ever will be back to Ukraine. I had sympathy for Ukraine in the past. But from the moment they started to kill innocent civilians and use swastikas… I changed my mind. I hate Nazis. Now I am not pro Russia, I am just anti Ukraine.
To be Anti Ukraine necessitates some degree of being pro Russia, a fair bit of being pro Russia.
Fresh from Tass: “Kiev forces keep trying to hit detention sites for Ukrainian POWs, Donetsk leader says”. So if you are a Ukrainian soldiers, I have a urgent advice to you: desert as fast as you can. because your own “Leaders” dont give a shit a bout your life. In fact they are trying to KILL YOU in case you get caught by the Russians.
after bankrupt usa govt send $$$ to zelenskyy—he buy mansions in Hamptons…
Cbs likes Pressure in his anus because with pressure they can make an abortion and save the climate change and F everybody !!!
yesterday i died because of climate change today the sun is gonna take a bath in your anus and you can die so….listen to the oraguntagus octogon nazi abortions !!!
The Us can keep sending their useless junk weapons to Ukraine but what manages to escape the black market and into the hands of the military, it’s all futile, their effectiveness is as much use as a used condom. The Russian military keeps chipping away at their own pace, no need to rush, nice and SLOW.
Nah. Most of the shit never gets sent to Ukropizdan. It is only on paper. While money transfers to private accounts are real.
US and NATO countries commit all sorts of aggressions around the world. When countries like Russia, Iran, Syria, North Korea etc are attacked by western countries, all that they could do is conduct some big military drills. Very funny.
It is not JUST corruption and selling the weapons that reduces the amount arriving at thefront lines but it is RUSSIAN STRIKES that are depleting the weapons. Please can you make the missiles more colorful and add more sound effects too. Love it Russia, thank you for being the decent folks in our world.
we specialize in training nazi hillbillies in Nebraska how to sweep floors and clean toilets in banks owned by superior Jews and if you graduate top 20% of class you may be able to be employed by superior black entrepreneur ….our advanced bootlicking theory course has received 3 brooms from Midwest Retired janitors recovery addicts consortium
Internet never forget. Streisand effect incoming !
Where does Lithuania find the area for exercising war games , when they are 1x1km
They film from close up-bottom up and in 100 angles. So midgets look bigger and it appears many more of them.
CNN paid for my electroshock and CBS employed as a janitor for 35 years—I good clean toilet
Al Capone would have made out like a bandit in Kiev and been elected BOSS. But here’s the thing, the Mafia didn’t kill women and children, and the UKS, and by extension the US does
Killing, torture, spite, hate is zoomer-hipster-libtard mentality.
corruption different in ukraine than USA where actual violence is usually avoided since different “mafias” specialize and or divide up turf to avoid direct confrontation….US gangsters would not survive in ukraine—too ostentatious, aggressive….Capone would be put in a grave by 3 mountain Chechens
CBS = Controlled By Semites
So the truth can not be told… 🤔
Fuck off libtard. You would not know what truth is even if your life depended on it.
We have become what we once ( professed ) to hate . Worse than , actually . much worse. One way or another, the US must be soundly defeated , but there’s a problem, the crazy bastards will destroy the whole world before giving up US hegemony and their dreams of world rule. This is crazy , they’re trying to do to the Russians what Hitler and the Nazis tried to do to the Jews !
Nah. This is what happens to all zombies. 5 states of degeneracy after you have choose a golden apple (aka crotch gazing, but the term is not very romantic and is usually not used). Or Plato’s Five States/Politics/Polis/Controls πέντε πολιτεῖαι. In the order of increasing degeneracy: wisdom, honor, wealth, liberty and power/chaos. There is a 6th state everybody likes to talk about though – peace 🤣🤣🤣 When there is nothing left, or the Extinction event.
Moral of the story: do not sell your soul/idea/form, because you become an empty shell obsessed with status/control/greed.
Such is the Military Industry in the U.S. – War is the excuse to open their taxpayer funded flea market. Clinton, bush, Obama, Trump, Biden Admins – ALL GUILTY
did not pass CIA censorship…our bewildered peasants prefer racist TV Star Trek or childish stupidity like Cheers…reality produces mental health crisis in USA
The journailst from the CBS said: Between the making of the vid and airing it on CBS, a significant amount of time passed and the percentages aren’t the same, but they’ve significally improved. Also, the USA sent its people on the ground in Ukraine at the start of August to make sure everything is delivered.
