On September 25th, during his first speech at the United Nations General Assembly, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky blatantly lied regarding a bullet that killed a Ukrainian soldier in 2016.
This death is used by the Ukrainian propaganda because before joining the frontlines in the Donbass, Vasily Slipak was a famous opera singer. He was also a member of the Nazi-infested “volunteer” battalion fighting on the side of the Kiev government.
Zelensky showed a 12.7 mm bullet, which allegedly was used by a sniper to kill Slipak. Allegedly, the exact bullet.
This is in complete contrast to a testimony given in an interview to media by a Donetsk People’s Republic soldier, known by the handle of “Sailor” (Moryachok). In 2016, Sailor admitted that during the fighting he was the one that shot at the APU machine-gun crew, in which the opera singer served, in order to protect his fellow soldiers’ lives.
He did say something else interesting – Sailor never let go of his weapon throughout the entire time – a 7.62 mm caliber Dragunov Sniper rifle.
The Dragunov Sniper Rifle is on the photograph below.
Furthermore, to provide a little bit of context, following is a list of the most common sniper bullets. The Dragunov’s 7.62 mm one is the very first one on the left of the photograph. The one Zelensky showed, the 12.7 mm one is the one on the far right.
It seemingly makes it impossible to make an “honest mistake” with saying that he just accidentally showed the “wrong bullet.”
But there are two things to consider:
- The bullet, Zelensky claims, is the exact bullet that shot Slipak. However, the bullet he is holding in his hand is almost brand new, it has no abrasions, no burn marks, no deformations.
- The Ukrainian side did claim from the very start that a 12.7 mm sniper rifle bullet killed Slipak. So, either the DPR sniper is lying about taking the shot, or the Ukrainian side is lying from the very start regarding which weapon killed the opera singer.
These are both rather insignificant, what is noteworthy is that Zelensky continues former President Petro Poroshenko’s actions, almost to the note.
In earlier UNGAs, Poroshenko brought part of the body of the bus, which was blown up by a mine. The bus was blown up in a zone controlled by Kiev, but the Donbass militia was accused of it.
Poroshenko also brought to the UN several Russian passports, which were allegedly taken from prisoners in the Donbass. Taking into account that multilpe Russian citizens came to the conflict zone as volunteers to help protect the local population from the Kiev regime, it hardly can be some important revelation. However, the Poroshenko government failed to provide military IDs that real servicemembers should have.
In addition, Zelensky’s speeches are also largely the same as Poroshenko’s. Notably, he presents as a victim the Nazi, who left the opera, to go and fight on the side of the battalions in the Donbass.
