Most people who have followed the conflict in Ukraine, will be aware of the illegal and deeply unpleasant actions of Graham Phillips, not least of which being his looting of dead Ukrainian soldiers wallets. As with US national Patrick Lancaster, Phillips from the UK, is obviously paid by Russia, to sow division and hatred in Ukraine.
Like Lancaster, he embarrassingly claims to be “independent and 100% crowdfunded,” yet has shown no evidence of independence and virtually none proving he’s funded by public donations. Having launched only a handful of Indiegogo crowd-funders, and yet despite at times few donations, Phillips still sees through all projects he desperately needed funding to complete. Again, as with Lancaster, these crowdfunding campaigns appear to be nothing but sham cover stories, with Russia paying for everything and both Lancaster & Phillips keeping any donated money.
A good example on this, is the last year spent living and travelling/working in Russia. This eastern trip has seen Phillips promoting Russia’s forthcoming World Cup and telling everyone how wonderful Crimea is, now Russia’s occupying it. Not having raised any money via crowdfunding to fund this long and expensive eastern odyssey, how can he afford it? Well, Phillips shallow defence, is additional donations made via PayPal. However, with the large sums of money needed to pay for everything he does, he’d need to be raising at least £15, 000 – £20,000 per year through PayPal. So does the UK Tax office know about this? Does he declare all his income? Can PayPal confirm this?
Below are the first and second of my videos from a series highlighting Phillips potential terrorist crimes in Ukraine. Designed to focus on individual acts, I’ll cover all aspects from his involvement in military actions against the Ukrainian army, his dubious crowdfunding claims and his assistance from Russian embassies to illegal enter Ukraine. All support to bring these videos to the attention of UK authorities is most welcome.
Reason why Phillips and Lancaster are used for propaganda, is due to them being western, English speaking. Russia can promote the idea that not all westerners believe the bad press about Russia. It also plays well for the Kremlin, to have English speaking people pushing their propaganda and is a real bonus for them on social media, such on YouTube.
BBC article on arrest of Benjamin Stimson, for terrorist crimes whilst fighting with Russian led forces in Ukraine. July 2017, Stimson jailed here in the UK for 5 years and 4 months. A read through of the UK 2006 Terrorist Act, suggests Phillips, should also be arrested. BBC article on Phillips dodgy crowd funding.
