Ukrainian Disinformation Agency Re-issues its Black List of 35 High Profile Americans including Tucker Carlson Accused of Disseminating Russian Propaganda Narratives
The Ukrainian government again included me on their list for publishing a new peace proposal in The National Interest entitled, "A Cease Fire Could Ensure Continued Ukrainian Independence"
Following Russia’s formal annexation of four Russian-occupied Ukrainian regions constituting fifteen percent of Ukraine’s territory and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decree of full Russian military mobilization which will cause Ukrainian forces to be outnumbered and overwhelmed once they are deployed to Ukraine in December, the Ukrainian government appears to be growing increasingly desperate resorting to ever more extreme forms of information warfare to advance their objectives. Ukrainian forces have been attempting to retake as much lost territory in their current counteroffensive as possible before major Russian reinforcements arrive knowing this will be their last chance to do so before the momentum permanently shifts to the Russian Federation. While they have succeeded in recapturing 6-8% of Russian occupied territory during the past month, they have reportedly suffered heavy casualties, greatly reducing their ability to engage in future counteroffensives.

In the latest sign of their desperation, the U.S. State Department funded Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation, which is part of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense, published an updated black list of 35 “high profile” Americans whom they have publicly denounced as “information terrorists subject to being tried as war criminals”. The list consisting of individuals who have been critical of the prevailing Biden regime media Ukraine war narrative and have refused to follow its lead in regurgitating Ukrainian government propaganda and disinformation which has brainwashed most U.S. policymakers to support an undeclared proxy war on Russia in Ukraine in polar opposition to U.S. national security interests. This undeclared proxy war could provoke an unnecessary Third World War between NATO and Russia, which would quickly escalate to the nuclear level and would could result in hundreds of millions of European and American deaths. They listed me as the 19th American on the list, down two places from their original black list, just before former America First patriot and U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
To provide you with further background to the story, here is a link to my press release issued in response to the Ukrainian Center for Countering Disinformation placing me on their original black list back in July. After I emailed them back in July, I am pleased to see that they have corrected their mispelling of my last name on their original list. New U.S. additions to their international blacklist of pro-peace nationalist political leaders and opinion makers include Fox News host Tucker Carlson, actor Steven Seagal, U.S. military strategist Edward Luttwak, Antiwar.com columnist Doug Bandow, Paul Pillar who serves with me as a fellow columnist for The National Interest and Jeremy Kuzmarov, a writer at Covert Action Magazine.
Surprisingly, they omitted billionaire, and soon to be Twitter owner, Elon Musk from the list despite the fact that he recently issued a peace proposal calling for new referendums in four Russian annexed Ukrainian regions. Despite his peace proposal being more favorable to Ukraine than Russia, Musk was vehemently attacked by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy who remains adamantly opposed to a peace agreement ending the war. By contrast, Musk’s peace proposal was praised by the Kremlin which has been attempting to negotiate a peace agreement from the first week the war began with Putin re-iterating his interest in peace talks just this past weekend.
Without a doubt, the Ukrainian government continues to be annoyed that they failed to silence me with their last blacklist given that I published a new peace proposal in The National Interest this past weekend calling for an immediate and permanent cease-fire along with an armistice agreement ending the war in Ukraine. My peace proposal, entitled “A Ceasefire Can Ensure Ukrainian Independence” has been one of the most popular articles on The National Interest website over the past few days generating increased interest in my previous article “Will American Aid to Ukraine Provoke a Russian Nuclear Strike.”
Here are some key excerpts from my peace proposal:
“There is only one way the West can prevent Ukraine from being defeated on the battlefield over the next several months and avoid a nuclear conflict with Russia: a return to diplomacy. President Joe Biden needs to call for an immediate cease-fire and armistice agreement to save Ukraine, ensure its security, and preserve its political and economic independence with control of at least 81 percent of its territory. It is in the U.S. national security interest to have Russia and Ukraine negotiate a permanent cease-fire as soon as possible and avoid potential nuclear escalation. The Biden administration should offer to not implement new economic sanctions against Russia, stop sending more U.S. troops to Eastern Europe, and suspend lethal military assistance to Ukraine in exchange for an immediate and sustained Russian ceasefire. A relaxation of sanctions following a peace deal would provide economic relief to millions of Americans suffering from a recession triggered by Western sanctions against Russia.”
The terms of the armistice agreement would be as follows:
1. All hostilities between the Russian Federation and Ukraine will cease immediately.
2. All Western lethal military assistance to Ukraine will be suspended so long as Russia honors the terms of the armistice agreement.
3. Russia will immediately suspend its Black Sea blockade of Ukraine.
4. The United States, Canada, European Union (EU), Japan, Australia, and New Zealand will lift their bans on Russian food and fuel exports.
5. All prisoners of war (POWs) will be returned to their home country.
6. United Nations (UN) peacekeepers from neutral countries will be deployed along the line of control where fighting has occurred in recent weeks. (Optionally, a four-kilometer wide demilitarized zone could be created along the borders of the four Russian annexed Ukrainian regions.)
7. Delegations from the Russian and Ukrainian governments will convene a conference immediately in Istanbul, Turkey to resume negotiations for a peace agreement where both parties left off when Ukraine withdrew from the negotiations in April.
While Ukraine stands the most to gain from an armistice agreement, every nation involved in the conflict could legitimately claim victory. Western leaders and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy could assert that they expelled Russian forces from four Ukrainian oblasts. Putin could claim “mission accomplished” for Russia’s special military operation. Ending the war as quickly as possible will save the lives of tens of thousands of Ukrainians and prevent the country from being overrun by Russian forces.”
Were it not for the refusal of Ukrainian government leaders to accept a much more favorable tentative peace agreement they negotiated with Russia in Istanbul in late March, the war would have ended five to six months ago and Kherson and Zaporizhzhia oblasts would still be part of Ukraine today. As editor of “The Real War” newsletter, you can count on me to remain a courageous voice for peace and to continue standing up for the best interests of the Ukrainian people to save Ukraine from much greater death, destruction and territorial losses than they have tragically suffered thus far.

yes - you should be honoured to be on this list of peace prize winners - keep at it - jeff
Sadly common sense is not that common. Please continue to be that voice in the wilderness. I'll never understand why so many seek war and refuse to open their hearts and minds to compromise. Time to set pride aside.
