You, like so many others here, are not psychologically capable of handling the truth in respect of the Ukrainian conflict. You are in permanent self-denial and will need psychiatric help once you realize everything you believed was a lie.
As usual, you couldn't have inadvertently described yourself better.

Top Western media outlet deletes video critical of Ukraine
Germany's Der Spiegel removes clip in which Azovstal evacuee criticized Ukraine
https://www.rt.com/russia/555093-spiege ... -mariupol/

Citing “discrepancies in content,” the German magazine Der Spiegel has removed a video showing the testimony of an evacuee from Mariupol’s ‘Azovstal’ factory, a stronghold of the neo-Nazi Azov militants and other Ukrainian fighters.

The woman in the video had revealed that her family were basically being lied to, held hostage, and used as human shields by the Ukrainian militants.

Another German outlet, Junge Welt, noticed the deletion on Thursday evening. According to JW, Der Spiegel published the three-minute video on Monday. It featured Natalia Usmanova, who had worked at Azovstal before the conflict and sheltered there with her husband and children.

In the recording, Usmanova tells reporters that Azov militants “kept us in the bunker” for two months and did not allow her family to leave using the humanitarian corridors established by Russian troops.

“They hid behind the fact that they are supposedly concerned about our safety,” Usmanova said, according to a German translation, adding that her family was repeatedly yelled at to “Go back to the bunker!”

“Ukraine has died for me as a state,” Usmanova said at the end of her testimony.

Der Spiegel said it had obtained the video from Reuters, and that it was temporarily taken down “because of discrepancies in content that were subsequently discovered.” Asked to specify the alleged discrepancies by RIA Novosti, Der Spiegel said they were “still in the process of clarifying this issue.”
So Steve, we will soon see who is in state of denial on what concerns lying propaganda. Once there is testimony to the inhuman way the Ukrainian army treats civilians, that testimony disappears so that western propaganda can continue spreading its lies...But you will never recognize that because to you, propaganda is more important than truth...

Kiev was never meant to be taken. The objective was pinning down Ukrainian forces which might otherwise be moved east. Once the Russian troops had consolidated their hold on the south and east, units could be moved from the Kiev area. Meanwhile enough Russian troops were kept north of the border so that if the Ukraine decided to move troops eastwards a new attack could be made on Kiev. That threat is enough to make sure that troops will not go to reinforce the besieged troops in the Donbass. Meanwhile bridges and railroads are being destroyed, to make sure no reinforcements can be sent to the Donbass. Underestimating the Russian high command is a mistake you and the Pentagon seem to be making, but that doesn't mean the Russians do not know what they are doing.
Balderdash.

The truth is the opposite. Russia thought that Kiev could fall within a short time. So they attacked Kyiv. But the brave Ukrainians put up a staunch defence. After suffering heavy losses, the Russians changed strategy and decided to focus on the Donbas.
Yes, the Russian army knew from past experience that taking a large, congested population centre like Kyiv is costly in terms of the huge number of casualties suffered in addition to the formidable defenses that I believe the Ukrainians has ringed their capital city with. Someone persuasive within Putin's inner circle must have convinced the psychopath that the cost would be too high and the consolation prize of the two Russophile pseudo-republics in the east were "softer targets".
Anyone using this expression in respect of Putin is definitely more of a psychopath than Putin could ever be. It also makes it impossible to even beginning to understand what is going on in the Ukraine. Congratulations on excluding yourself from any intelligent discussion on such matter.
But Neverfail is right. Putin is a psychopath.
