On March 21, 2014 BBC aired the show "World Have Your Say", a talk on Crimea and other situations which featured, among others, a man named Dr. Vladimir Yuryevich Grubnik from Odessa. Today he is a political prisoner of the Kiev regime the United States put in place in Ukraine. This is where Obama's Ukraine gambit has led, to the tracking down of opposition thought, what locals fear is a reprisals phase of a supposed democratic takeover.
Dr. Grubnik is a surgeon and a teacher of medicine at the Odessa National Medical University. He is a member of the European Association of Endoscopic Surgeons, as well as a peaceful opponent to the violent takeover of his country. In October of last year, the Poroshenko government has brutally arrested him, and according to other inmate reports, beaten him on more than one occasion. The same kind and calm man you see watching the BBC report, is reportedly denied even medical attention for his existing tuberculosis condition. I received information on Dr. Grubnik's arrest and his condition from another guest on the BBC show, Russian photo-journalist and colleague, Vladimir Samarin, who expressed concerns Grubnik may not live out the month. I have contacted Human Rights Watch and other organizations on Dr. Grubnik's behalf, but this report is an appeal to you readers, to raise the bar on awareness of this man's condition there in Odessa.
Vladimir Grubnik has been arrested by order of one of the most notorious NATO sympathizers and disruptors of all, Odessa Governor, former President of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, on the charge of planting explosives at the Security Service building in Odesa on September 27 of last year. While I have no way of knowing whether or not Dr. Grubnik had any involvement in the explosion at the SBU headquarters there, I do find it hard to believe such a busy doctor had the time to orchestrate such an attack. As you can easily see at the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health, Dr. Grubnik has been busy contributing to the realm of medicine, and particularly in the last two years.
The head of the Kiev regime's SBU, Vasily Gritsak declared the crime "solved" when Grubnik was arrested. But Dr. Grubnik was always on a real "hit list" this author's team ferreted out months ago with the so-called "Peacemaker" revelations. At this point it's essential to point out Ukraine's Poroshenko has put in office the most "loyal" (and bloodthirsty) officials in his regime. Gritsak, who replaced the ousted former SBU chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, has not only be complicit in media cover-ups and itenerate skullduggery, but has known of the civilian carnage Poreshenko's regime has exacted in East Ukraine all along. This leaked report from 2014, revealed by Professor Michel Chossudovsky on Global Research, bears Gritsak's signature. It shows clearly the men in charge of Ukraine have quelled western fears of massive civilian casualties in Donetsk, Luhansk, and elsewhere in the region.
Turning back to the Peacemaker hit list, here is Grubnik's profile on the same site essentially funded and influenced by not only NATO, but the British Embassy and other outside control. This report on Russia Insider shows us that these aptly termed "Nazi hit lists" still exist. For those unaware, the people behind this "Peacemaker" website work with something called the Ukrainian Peacekeeping school in Karkov, an effort funded and supported by the British Embassy in Ukraine.
I'm making calls all day today, and have my research team back on the trail of the Saakashvili's and Poroshenko's "hit men" in the town where the infamous "Odessa Massacre" occurred. Until we've more evidence on behalf of Dr. Grubnik I implore you to contact Human Rights Watch via Facebook or Twitter, and the offices of the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein (click to tweet), and Doctors Without Borders. A simple request to #protectDrGrubnik should do.
Innocent of all charges, or found guilty of some wrongdoing, Dr Grubnik is supposedly held by a supposedly democratic government all the western democracies have supported. If he is beaten, tortured, denied medical attention, or treated inhumanely at all, those democracies bear the full responsibility for these crimes against true freedom. I should not have to chastise any government of free human beings. I hope this is enough said.
Turkish President Recep Erdogan should have thought twice before saying that Turkey was not recognising Crimea as Russian territory. He should not have said that
