Amazing that the NZ government, so anti-gun and anti Far-Right, particularly after the Christchurch mosque shootings which led to a ban on AR weapons in NZ, are now intending to provide weapons funding to Ukraine. Watch these videos and you’ll understand the hypocrisy in this decision.
Note that these presentations date from before Putin’s military incursion and so are “pre-narrative” Western Mainstream Media. Both from early 2021 so still very much current and relevant. I’m surprised YT hasn’t taken them down. Martin
So, surely, if this information is freely available online, our government must know about it, right? They can’t be THAT uninformed, can they? So they MUST know that Putin is right about Neo-Nazism being rife in Ukraine? So how can they justify this?…
The Government will send a C130 Hercules aircraft to Europe to help move donated military provisions to Ukraine and will provide millions of dollars for weapons to arm Ukrainian soldiers.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, at a press conference on Monday, announced a contingent of 50 New Zealand Defence Force staff would be sent on the Hercules to Europe to assist with supplying Ukraine as it fights Russian troops for a seventh week. The New Zealand soldiers will not enter Ukraine.
“New Zealand will contribute an extra $13 million towards military, legal and human rights support including $7.5 million to contribute to weapons and ammunition procurement, via the United Kingdom,” Ardern said. Of the new funds, $4.1m will be provided so that Ukraine’s military can have access to commercial satellites, which will “help them understand and respond to Russia’s actions on the battlefield”.New Zealand to send Air Force Hercules to Europe to assist Ukraine military aid effort | Stuff.co.nz
I’m sure you’ll all sleep easy at night, knowing Ardern has given Neo Nazi militia access to the commercial satellites whizzing overhead. Great work Jacinda.
