Russia hits NATO training base near Polish border
Eight missiles hit NATO's “International Peacekeeping and Security Centre” in the Lviv oblast of Ukraine. This was a military training range with a permanent deployment of NATO instructors in Starychi, which had hosted frequent joint NATO-Ukrainian exercises. The largest number of foreign instructors were sent by Canada.

Moscow had warned against increasing Western arms supplies to Ukraine. According to Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, convoys with military armaments and arms deliveries would be regarded as military targets. The UK, Germany and the United States, have been dispatching thousands of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles to Kiev in a bid to foment a war.
Ryabkov said his country had “warned the US that pumping weapons from a number of countries it orchestrates isn’t just a dangerous move, it’s an action that makes those convoys legitimate targets”.
TOGETHER WE IMPROVE

The NATO military base near the Polish border was fired upon by Russian rockets, according to the Lviv regional military administration. According to initial estimates, eight rockets were fired. “The occupiers launched an airstrike on the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security,” the Ukrainian side confirmed. They announced 35 dead and 134 wounded as a result of the shelling.
The western Ukrainian city of Lemberg (Lviv) was also shaken by several explosions on Sunday morning. Several rockets are said to have hit the city. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, near Kiev, an air force base in Vasylkiv and the intelligence center of the Ukrainian armed forces in Brovary have also been razed to the ground.
On Saturday, Russia warned against increasing NATO’s presence in the Baltic States. “The build-up of NATO troops and infrastructure right on our borders, as well as plans for their continued deployment, are frankly a provocation and are leading to a significant increase in the confrontation in the Baltics,” Russian Foreign Ministry Director for European Affairs Sergey Belyayev told the press the agency Interfax.
Belyayev also warned against Sweden or Finland joining NATO. This would have “serious military and political consequences that would force us to reconsider the whole range of relations with these states and take retaliatory measures,” the diplomat said.
Russia turns up the heat
The fiercest fighting on Saturday raged in southern Ukraine in particular, but also in the east and on the outskirts of Kiev. In terms of military tactics, the Russian offensive is largely going according to plan, even if the Western media likes to portray it differently.
As fierce fighting continued, the deputy of the Ukrainian Azov battalion encircled in the Mariupol cauldron called for reinforcements from Kiev. His desperate message was relayed on Telegram.

Soros is clearly at a loss to counter Russia’s resolve
The pressure that Russia has brought to bear on Ukraine, has prompted Western Deep State figures to multiply calls for augmenting the conflict. Unless Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are “removed from power” they will “destroy our civilization”, lamented billionaire philanthropist George Soros in an op-ed published by Project Syndicate on Friday.
“The United States and the European Union are both sending defensive weapons to Ukraine, and there are efforts to buy Russian-made MIG fighters that Ukrainian pilots know how to fly. These could make all the difference,” he wrote. “We can only hope that Putin and Xi will be removed from power before they can destroy our civilization.” Poland however has already declined the offer.
According to Soros, Putin has “gone literally mad”. The Open Society Foundation chairman repeated farcical claims by British sources.
While no one has been puzzled by Putin’s reasons for trying to avert a human catastrophe for Russians in Donbass, the Mail Online portal cited British pharmacists worried about the Russian leader’s “Long Covid” affecting his reasoning. The non-existent affliction has been debunked as a hoax even by the mainstream.
Ignoring American voters
The Pentagon has deployed at least 12 000 troops to NATO member nations to aid in the Ukraine-Russia conflict, despite Americans overwhelmingly opposing US involvement.
US President Joe Biden is also reportedly gearing up to deploy US Border Patrol agents “to assist” those fleeing from Ukraine.
In addition to deploying troops, the Biden administration has showered Ukraine with aid, bringing “the total security assistance the United States has committed to Ukraine over the past year to more than $1 billion,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on February 26. And more aid has been allocated.
According to an Associated Press-NORC poll, only 26 percent of Americans believe their country should play a “major role” in the Russia-Ukraine conflict, while 72 percent said the US should have a “minor role” or “no role” at all. But Biden has simply ignored his voters.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
