Hello, from me Alex King.
First off, despite what the Kremlin’s little trolls would have you believe, I’ve absolutely zero connection with Ukraine, just simply an English chap who doesn’t like puffed up, bullying dictators.
In Aug 2014, I found myself taking up the good fight for Ukraine. This out of the blue decision came about after seeing Russian state trolls posting comments on a Ukraine story, via the BBC website. It’s not widely known, but everyday, Kremlin trolls post comments on all the worlds major news, websites. So feeling somewhat miffed by those pesky Russians invading the BBC, Glasnost Gone was duly born.
After a few smaller Twitter campaigns, such as #RussiaTodaySpinning, I founded Nadiya Savchenko’s, #FreeSavchenko campaign. With the help of many good people around the world, 1.6 million tweets, World leaders and politicians around the world calling 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 addition, as you’ll see on this blog, I’m trying to show something of the on-going suffering of civilians living on the frontline.
I am 100% independent of any country, or organisation. I simply post what I feel is important and what I hope the world might want to read.
So that’s me. You have my sincere thanks for stopping by and should you want to support my work (PLEASE DO), you can donate using PayPal, via my Contact page.
