Ukrainian Disinformation Center Forced to Suppress Its Infamous “Hit List”
As a result of the vigorous international mobilization, catalyzed by the Schiller Institute and taken up by other individuals from different political orientations, Kiev’s “Center for Countering Disinformation” (CCD) has removed from its website its blacklist of over 70 international figures accused of spreading “Russian propaganda” and being “information terrorists” (cf. SAS 31, 32/22). The CCD, which is funded by the U.S. State Department and the British government among others, was likely advised by increasingly nervous NATO interests to suppress the list. Intelligence sources have pointed to the impact of exposés published in India, Germany and Denmark on such blatant and serious threats directed against anyone who questions the official narrative of Kiev and NATO.
From the United States, former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter has targeted in particular the role of New York State Senator Charles Schumer in ensuring the funding for the CCD, which, in turn, placed on its blacklist the one candidate who is running against him in the November election, namely Diane Sare of the Schiller Institute. Two other political opponents of Schumer are also on the list, Ritter has noted in various publications: himself and Senator Rand Paul.
Helga Zepp-LaRouche for her part, who is number two on the Disinformation Center list, had called on Chancellor Scholz to urge the Ukrainian government to denounce this attempt to silence free speech, even abroad, through intimidation and implicit death threats. She pointed out in an Aug. 11 webcast, that what she is accused of is of saying “that if we continue with the present policy of confrontation with Russia and China, there is the danger of a Third World War…. And I have demanded an international security architecture to remedy that… Now, if you are called a ‘war criminal’ because you are saying that, this really unmasks those who are doing it.”
