Hello, from me Alex King.
First off, it’s worth saying I have absolutely zero connection with Ukraine; I’m simply an British chap from London who doesn’t like tiny, topless, tin-pot dictators who invade Ukraine.

In Aug 2014, I found myself joining Twitter and taking up the good fight for Ukraine. This out of the blue decision came about after having seen Russian trolls on the BBC website posting comments on a story about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. It’s not widely known, but every day Kremlin trolls are paid to post pro-Russian comments on all the worlds major news websites. So feeling somewhat miffed by Putin’s pesky Russians having invaded the BBC, @GlasnostGone was born.
After a few smaller Twitter campaigns, such as #RussiaTodaySpinning, which successfully exposed Russian state media misinformation, I founded Nadiya Savchenko’s #FreeSavchenko campaign. With the help of a huge number of people around the world, 1.6 million tweets, world leaders and politicians calling for her release, Nadiya’s remarkable Russian lawyers and the incredible Ukrainian bravery of Nadiya herself, in May 2016, Russia was forced to free her. Now, using satellite imagery & open-source material, I’m doing what I can to highlight Russia’s on-going military involvement in eastern Ukraine.
I’m 100% independent of any country or organisation.
Seven years on, I simply post what I feel is important and what I hope people might want to read. So that’s me. It only remains to say you have my sincere thanks for stopping by.

In case you’re wondering about the header picture. My mug of coffee and poster were inspired by the below now famous 2014, Canada at NATO tweet.
