Question 1– Can you explain to me why you think Russia is winning the war in Ukraine?

Larry C. Johnson– Within the first 24 hours of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, all Ukrainian Ground Radar Intercept capabilities were wiped out. Without those radars, the Ukrainian Air Force lost its ability to do air to air intercept. In the intervening three weeks, Russia has established a de facto No Fly Zone over Ukraine. While still vulnerable to shoulder fired Surface to Air Missiles supplied by the U.S. and NATO to the Ukrainians, there is no evidence that Russia has had to curtail Combat Air Operations.

Russia’s arrival in Kiev within three days of the invasion also caught my attention. I recalled that the Nazi’s in Operation Barbarossa took seven weeks to reach Kiev and the required 7 more weeks to subdue the city. The Nazis had the advantage of not pulling punches to avoid civilian casualties and were eager to destroy critical infrastructure. Yet many so-called American military experts claimed that Russia was bogged down. When a 24 mile (or 40 mile, depends on the news source) was positioned north of Kiev for more than a week, it was clear that Ukraine’s ability to launch significant military operations had been eliminated. If their artillery was intact, then that column was easy pickings for massive destruction. That did not happen. Alternatively, if the Ukrainian’s had a viable fixed wing or rotary wing capability they should have destroyed that column from the air. That did not happen. Or, if they had a viable cruise missile capability they should have rained down hell on the supposedly stalled Russian column. That did not happen. The Ukrainians did not even mount a significant infantry ambush of the column with their newly supplied U.S. Javelins.

The scale and scope of the Russian attack is remarkable. They captured territory in three weeks that is larger than the land mass of the United Kingdom. They then proceeded to carry out targeted attacks on key cities and military installations. We have not seen a single instance of a Ukrainian regiment or brigade size unit attacking and defeating a comparable Russian unit. Instead, the Russians have split the Ukrainian Army into fragments and cut their lines of communication. The Russians are consolidating their control of Mariupol and have secured all approaches on the Black Sea. Ukraine is now cut off in the South and the North.

I would note that the U.S. had a tougher time capturing this much territory in Iraq in 2003 while fighting against a far inferior, less capable military force. If anything, this Russian operation should scare the hell out of U.S. military and political leaders.

The really big news came this week with the Russian missile strikes on what are de facto NATO bases in Yavoriv and Zhytomyr. NATO conducted cyber security training at Zhytomyr in September 2018 and described Ukraine as a “NATO partner.” Zhytomyr was destroyed with hypersonic missiles on Saturday. Yavoriv suffered a similar fate last Sunday. It was the primary training and logistics center that NATO and EUCOM used to supply fighters and weapons to Ukraine. A large number of the military and civilian personnel at that base became casualties.

Not only is Russia striking and destroying bases used by NATO regularly since 2015, but there was no air raid warning and there was no shutdown of the attacking missiles.

Question 2– Why is the media trying to convince the Ukrainian people that they can prevail in their war against Russia? If what you say is correct, then all the civilians that are being sent to fight the Russian army, are dying in a war they can’t win. I don’t understand why the media would want to mislead people on something so serious. What are your thoughts on the matter?

Larry C. Johnson– This is a combination of ignorance and laziness. Rather than do real reporting, the vast majority of the media (print and electronic) as well as Big Tech are supporting a massive propaganda campaign. I remember when George W. Bush was Hitler. I remember when Donald Trump was Hitler. And now we have a new Hitler, Vladimir Putin. This is a tired, failed playbook. Anyone who dares to raise legitimate questions about is immediately tarred as a Putin puppet or a Russia stooge. When you cannot argue facts the only recourse is name calling.

Question 3– Last week, Colonel Douglas MacGregor was a guest on the Tucker Carlson Show. His views on the war are strikingly similar to your own. Here’s what he said in the interview:

“The war is really over for the Ukrainians. They have been ground into bits, there is no question about that despite what we hear from our mainstream media. So, the real question for us at this stage is, Tucker, are we going to live with the Russian people and their government or we going to continue to pursue this sort of regime change dressed up as a Ukrainian war? Are we going to stop using Ukraine as a battering ram against Moscow, which is effectively what we’ve done.” (Tucker Carlson– MacGregor Interview)

Do you agree with MacGregor that the real purpose of goading Russia into a war in Ukraine was “regime change”?

Second, do you agree that Ukraine is being used as a staging ground for the US to carry out a proxy-war on Russia?

Larry C. Johnson– Doug is great analyst but I disagree with him—I don’t think there is anyone in the Biden Administration that is smart enough to think and plan in those strategic terms. In my view the last 7 years have been the inertia of the NATO status quo. What I mean by that is that NATO and Washington, believed they could continue to creep east on Russia’s borders without provoking a reaction. NATO and EUCOM regularly carried out exercises—including providing “offensive” training—and supplied equipment. I believe reports in the United States that the CIA was providing paramilitary training to Ukrainian units operating in the Donbass are credible. But I have trouble believing that after our debacles in Iraq and Afghanistan, we suddenly have Sun Tzu level strategists pulling the strings in Washington.

There is an air of desperation in Washington. Besides trying ban all things Russian, the Biden Administration is trying to bully China, India and Saudi Arabia. I do not see any of those countries falling into line. I believe the Biden crew made a fatal mistake by trying to demonize all things and all people Russian. If anything, this is uniting the Russian people behind Putin and they are ready to dig in for a long struggle.

I am shocked at the miscalculation in thinking economic sanctions on Russia would bring them to their knees. The opposite is true. Russia is self-sufficient and is not dependent on imports. Its exports are critical to the economic well-being of the West. If they withhold wheat, potash, gas, oil, palladium, finished nickel and other key minerals from the West, the European and U.S. economies will be savaged. And this attempt to coerce Russia with sanctions has now made it very likely that the U.S. dollar’s role as the international reserve currency will show up in the dustbin of history.

Question 4– Ever since he delivered his famous speech in Munich in 2007, Putin has been complaining about the “architecture of global security”. In Ukraine we can see how these nagging security issues can evolve into a full-blown war. As you know, in December Putin made a number of demands related to Russian security, but the Biden administration shrugged them off and never responded. Putin wanted written assurances that NATO expansion would not include Ukraine (membership) and that nuclear missile systems would not be deployed to Romania or Poland. Do you think Putin’s demands are unreasonable?

Larry C. Johnson– I think Putin’s demands are quite reasonable. The problem is that 99% of Americans have no idea of the kind of military provocation that NATO and the U.S. have carried out over the last 7 years. The public was always told the military exercises were “defensive.” That simply is not true. Now we have news that DTRA was funding biolabs in Ukraine. I guess Putin could agree to allow U.S. nuclear missile systems in Poland and Romania if Biden agrees to allow comparable Russian systems to be deployed in Cuba, Venezuela and Mexico. When we look at it in those terms we can begin to understand that Putin’s demands are not crazy nor unreasonable.

Question 5– Russian media reports that Russian “high precision, air-launched” missiles struck a facility in west Ukraine “killing more than 100 local troops and foreign mercenaries.” Apparently, the Special Operations training center was located near the town of Ovruch which is just 15 miles from the Polish border. What can you tell us about this incident? Was Russia trying to send a message to NATO?

Larry C. Johnson– Short answer—YES! Russian military strikes in Western Ukraine during the past week have shocked and alarmed NATO officials. The first blow came on Sunday, March 13 at Yavoriv, Ukraine. Russia hit the base with several missiles, some reportedly hypersonic. Over 200 personnel were killed, which included American and British military and intelligence personnel, and hundreds more wounded. Many suffered catastrophic wounds, such as amputations, and are in hospital. Yet, NATO and the western media have shown little interest in reporting on this disaster.

Yavoriv was an important forward base for NATO (see here). Until February (prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine), the U.S. 7th Army Training Command was operating from Yavoriv as late as mid-February. Russia has not stopped there. ASB Military news reports Russia hit another site, Delyatyn, which is 60 miles southeast of Yavoriv (on Thursday I believe). Yesterday, Russia hit Zytomyr, another site where NATO previously had a presence. Putin has sent a very clear message—NATO forces in Ukraine will be viewed and treated as combatants. Period.

Question 6– Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has been lionized in the western media as a “wartime leader” and a modern-day “Winston Churchill”. What the media fails to tell its readers is that Zelensky has taken a number of steps to strengthen his grip on power while damaging fragile democratic institutions in Ukraine. For example, Zelensky has “banned eleven opposition-owned news organizations” and tried to bar the head of Ukraine’s largest opposition party, Viktor Medvedchuk, from running for office on a bogus “terrorist financing” charge. This is not the behavior of a leader that is seriously committed to democracy.

What’s your take on Zelensky? Is he really the “patriotic leader” the media makes him out to be?

Larry C. Johnson– Zelensky is a comedian and an actor. Not a very good one at that in my view. The West is cynically using the fact he is Jewish as a diversion from the size-able contingent of Neo-Nazis (and I mean genuine Nazis who still celebrate the Ukrainian Waffen SS unit’s accomplishments while fighting with the Nazis in WW II). The facts are clear—he is banning opposition political parties and shutting down opposition media. I guess that is the new definition of “democracy.”

Question 7– How does this end? There’s an excellent post at the Moon of Alabama site titled “What Will Be The Geographic End State Of The War In Ukraine. The author of the post, Bernard, seems to think that Ukraine will eventually be partitioned along the Dnieper River “and south along the coast that holds a majority ethnic Russian population.” He also says this:

“This would eliminate Ukrainian access to the Black Sea and create a land bridge towards the Moldavian breakaway Transnistria which is under Russian protection. The rest of the Ukraine would be a land confined, mostly agricultural state, disarmed and too poor to be build up to a new threat to Russia anytime soon. Politically it would be dominated by fascists from Galicia which would then become a major problem for the European Union.”

What do you think? Will Putin impose his own territorial settlement on Ukraine in order to reinforce Russian security and bring the hostilities to an end or is a different scenario more likely?

Larry C. Johnson– I agree with Moon. Putin’s primary objective is to secure Russia from foreign threats and effect a divorce with the West. Russia has the physical resources to be an independent sovereign and is in the process of making that vision come true.

    The Neocons/Lib-cons have cynically used the more-than-willing ((Jewish)) establishment as cover for their own velvet glove, Anglo-imperialist Judeofascism for decades. This is what Neoconservatism amounts to.

    And I’m sorry to inform Johnson that George W. Bush and Donald Trump are neck deep in Neoconservatism and Zionism, no less than Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton.

    Israel and the ((Jews)) are the last refuge of scoundrels, literally and figuratively. ((Zelensky)) epitomizes every ((Jew)) and every ((Neocon/Lib-con)) made-man and womyn — a gutless, degenerate, Satanic reptile.

    Interesting thoughts.

    “Why is the media trying to convince the Ukrainian people that they can prevail in their war against Russia?” – Because the western elites don’t want Putin to take over Ukraine the way he did Crimea – essentially bloodless, and without destroying the place. They want Ukraine to bleed, they want Russia to bleed, and they want the Russian victory to be pyrrhic – to be responsible for a devastated land that increasingly will hate Russians. And ideally, to have a long-festering guerrilla war.

    In a sense, both Putin and the Western elites played “You bet your empire.” Putin (apparently) gambled that he could take the whole of the Ukraine as easily as he took Crimea – that didn’t work out, so now he is going to plan B. Perhaps Mr. Putin will make that work, we shall see. But a Russian failure in Ukraine could – potentially – lead to the end of the current regime, and an opening up of Russia to western de-facto domination as under Yeltsin. High stakes.

    But the Western elites have also gambled. They have thrown all of their prestige at the idea that their sanctions, their total control of international finance, makes their power supreme. If that works, if Russia really can’t stand a sudden cutting off from western trade (things like advanced parts for commercial jetliners require a vast and intricate supply line that can’t be replicated in a short time), then they stand as de-facto the rulers of the world. But if Putin can withstand the sanctions, if Russia does well and even prospers, well, the prestige and power of the western elites will be greatly diminished if not shattered. That’s why the western elites are reacting so strongly, and throwing every tool they have at Putin: they know the stakes.

    So yes, Putin gambled big. But the western elites may have gambled even more.

    Interesting times.

  4. Follow the money.

    The US and NATO can scrap all the billions of dollars in weapons deals that were signed or on the table with Ukraine.

    The MIC gets the consolation prize of depletion of existing missile stocks shipped to Kiev, and some hearty spending in the near future by Poland and Germany.

    Admitting it’s a lost cause means someone may question why pallets of expensive arms are still being dumped into the Ukraine cauldron.

    Every time Zelensky gives a speech he should be getting paid by Lockheed and Raytheon, and probably is.

    Every day the EU exchanges around \$1 billion for natural gas with Russia. Putin can keep his New Russia easily enough. Make nervous people run, bring in settlers. Vanish known threats.

    If the Germans push back too much, shut off their energy.

    The attack on mostly Jewish oligarchs hiding their grifter loot in London NYC etc means the oligarchs can’t sweat the Russians quite so much now. It means Putin can privately shed crocodile tears for them and point out how unfaithful western banks really are.

    He will take everything East of the Dneiper.

  6. Malla says:

    I wonder if the Russian armed forces used the good old Cauldron technique, surround the enemy and heat them up with constant bombardment until they kind of give up. But the question is, will most Ukrainians accept a Russian supported Government? Will the Russians have to occupy the country for long? Or will some settlement be reached with Ukraine, a settlement amiable to Russia? The last option will be the best. Occupying Ukraine, could be much more difficult.

    The Russians will have more problems in Western Ukraine where they are likely to face a serious insurgency if they plan to occupy it even though most of the Ukrainian Army is in Eastern Ukraine. Remember, the Banderists/ Ukrainian Nationalists fought Stalin (no joke that) for Ukrainian Independence for 11 years after WW2 ended, leading to the deaths of 100000 odd people. With no German or American support.
    Their best bet is to commit regime change in Ukraine, liberate Donetsk and Luhansk as independent republics, open the water supply to Crimea and then leave ASAP. Any long term occupation of Western Ukraine, may make it an Afghanistan like situation.

    Why? It’s Slavs and Christians “occupying” Slavs and Christians. The ((Jews)) have all run off to Israel or into the West with their stolen loot. Even ((Zelensky)) is doing greenscreens, probably from somewhere in the West.

    Putin needs to subdue the neo-Nazis, the Slavs and Christians will be grateful, and Ukraine and Russia will be in the catbird seat as the breadbasket of Europe. The ((Jews)) will have to come begging for bread scraps, and will be kicked out on their ear. Let them eat Federal Reserve Notes.

    Within that quote is the “genuine Nazis” stuff. Given Galicia had been part of the Austrian Empire lost at Versailles, and overrun by communists who then starved millions to death, I am always at a loss to understand why people are surprised that “Ukrainians” in the area volunteered to fight against the communists, including the local partisan communists.
    The problem has always been that the Ukrainians saw the Jews in charge, as Russians.

    How could anyone NOT know that the ((Jews)) were and are of the Golden Calf? Are there no Bibles in Europe? ALL of the Bolshevik Slavs knew it. All of the Nazis knew it. All of the elite Anglos knew it. They all just wanted the franchise for themselves, and still do. Israel wants the franchise today.

    They JUST… DON’T… FUCKING… CARE. They equate the Golden Calf with luxury and national aggrandizement and easy living. They spit on the entire Christian legacy and heritage to pamper themselves and make themselves feel like bigshots and Important People. They sold the farm to rent suites at the best ((Jew)) hotels, and gamble in Vegas.

    Putin has a chance to restore the natural order and end the ((Jew)) Ponzi scheme, which is eventually going to crash on everyone anyway. And he damn well better take it, because if he doesn’t, the crash is going to be exponentially BIGGER, and it’s going to take out the entirety of the Anglosphere and Western Civilization, which probably means the end of world civilization.

    Does anyone wonder why kikes are so obsessed with End Times? You just read why. They know where their Ponzi scheme ends, and they kept inflating it anyway.

    Why do people keep asserting that the Russians are having a hard time of it in Ukraine?

    They have taken territory at a faster pace than either US invasion of Iraq – with a smaller deployment and facing a better-equipped enemy.

    They’ve done this feat of combined arms, while deliberately using prior-generation weaponry and second-tier manpower – and refusing to use US tactics like destroying civilian infrastructure (especially water and sewage treatment plants).

    The US – and their NATO lapdog – does this in the first 150 sorties of any campaign. It has the primary aim of increasing water-borne disease… i.e., deliberately targeting infants and the elderly. A rather (((Old Testament))) approach, if we’re being honest.

    The Russian campaign thus far has been scrupulous in observing their obligations to minimise civilian casualties – quite the opposite of the Ukrainian actions in the Donbass since 2004 .

    Take a look at a map: Kiev is surrounded; Mariupol likewise. The Russians can hit Lviv without needing to be concerned that their missiles get intercepted. They own the skies, and they have ~60k Ukrainian troops in a gigantic killbox (the blue circle): it’s only a matter of time before the guys in the killbox surrender. They can’t resupply.

    Of course I’m assuming that the surrounded Ukie troops don’t do a heroic ‘Masada Moment‘ like their temporarily-famous “Snake Island” counterparts – viz., all dying a blaze of glory while yelling ‘Fuck You!!‘ and giving the baddies the middle finger.

    Oh wait… that didn’t happen. It was entirely confected for Western mouth-breathers who think that everything should happen in 42 minutes plus ad-breaks.

    Siege warfare never fails. Ask the [German] 6th Army, starting in November 1942.

  12. @Cookie

    I feel sorry for the Ukrainians who were groomed by Western propaganda into thinking they had a big friend that had their back only to be dropped into the soup.

    It doesn’t make sense to feel sorry for people who refuse to look at the historical timeline and form their expectations accordingly.

    The Western political class has an unbroken history of reneging on promises, stretching back to before the Treaty of Westphalia. They break promises to each other – and to their respective polities – the moment the calculus changes: anyone who relies on any undertaking from the Western political class is beyond retarded.

    I have as much sympathy for people who rely on political promises, as I have for people who permitted themselves (and their children) to be injected with Pfizer’s Magic Jizz.

    It warms my heart every time I look at the data – which shows that Pfizer’s Magic Jizz makes a positive contribution to All-Cause Mortality, particularly among jabbed teenage children.

    Humanity has enough sludge in the gene pool: excess deaths of stupid and gullible humans is just them failing a little tiny real-life IQ test – whether it’s a professional athlete clutching his chest on the field, or a Ukrainian villager believing that the West would ride to the rescue and win.

  13. pure Putinista nonsense.

    Putin’s fake and gay “war” is now nearing the one month mark.

    not one major city has been cleared by Feldmarschal Putin’s de-nazification corps,

    and 90% of the countryside remains under Uke control. Even Kharkov, right on the border, is still unoccupied.

    the fact that Putin chose to negotiate with, and thus legitimize, the globohomo (((Zelensky))) regime, says volumes about this monumental clusterf*ck.

    why? because the Kremlin is still encrusted with Jewish oligarchs and Putin himself is an Israel-stooge. No doubt he’d like to be a Russian Nationalist. But, thus conflicted, he just…cannot…do it.

    One thing you have to understand about America is this : America will not go to war or even risk going to war with another nuclear armed country with the means to attack the American mainland and kill millions of Americans. That thought apparently never entered the minds of the Maidan Ukrainians.

    When this war with Ukraine ends with a Ukrainian defeat, there is going to be alot of resentment and hatred on the part of the Maidan Ukrainians toward America.

    Agree. Most likely, Zelensky has been in Warsaw, Poland as photographs seem to indicate. I thought it was absurd that Zelensky allegedly met with the prime ministers of Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic in Kiev last week. Kiev was defacto covered by the Russian Air Force overhead and the Russian Army on three sides at the time of the alleged meeting. Western ‘news’ agencies did not explain how a Polish train carrying prime ministers from NATO countries crossed an international border into an active war zone and traveled halfway across Ukraine without clearance from the Russian gov’t. Laughable. The reality is that the train never left Poland. NATO staged a hoax.

    A late-breaking newsflash spells doom for the Russians–Volodymyr Zelensky is transitioning to womanhood and has the new first name of Tetyana (meaning: fairy princess).

    International leaders are overwhelmed:

    German Chancellor Olaf Scholz gushed, “Oh, ya, Das ist some yummy booty.”

    Emmanuel Macron of France muttered, “My wee-wee cries oui, oui!”

    Canada’s Justin Trudeau exclaimed, “Tetyana–it’s Bouncy Castle and maple syrup time, baby!”

    Boris Johnson of the UK promised, “My kingdom for a night, just one night….oh, please!”

    The U.S.’s Joe Biden slobbered, convulsed, sniffed wildly at the air, shouting, “We’ll nuke ya Putin, we’re nukin’ Putin!”

    With the U.N., NATO, the EU, NCAA sports, PETA, and Greta Thunberg uniting in full force and fury, Tetyana Zelensky’s tranny master-stroke, in the unlikely event that it doesn’t finish Putin, will at least assure her a rewarding future reading library books to U.S. schoolchildren.

    Your comment implies that these people are smart enough to know who really screwed them. I beg to differ. Almost nobody on this planet is smart enough to know who’s really screwing them. Also note that the western “Hero of Freedom,” Zelensky, just banned independent media and banned his political opposition. If the outcome of the war is as this article predicts, West Ukraine will remain a poor, backwards, and fully Nazi-indoctrinated country. I actually don’t see how Russia and Putin can accomplish their stated goals without taking over the entire Ukraine to prevent that outcome, and will likely have to cut their losses and establish a new ‘frozen conflict line’ with Ukraine, because unless they have planned for this conflict to last months and years, they are simply moving too slowly for anything else. I think this article overstates the Russian advances. They are going slowly and carefully and trying to preserve lives, for better or worse.

  19. Following up on my theory that the US will be nuked by Vladdy , after Russia is false flagged nuked or nuked by a rebel outfit or similar, I recalled Gates bought all the middle of the US in the last three years, we have to know that the dumb areas and tunnels connecting the Continuity Government will suffice for the US 1%, eliminates all of us useless eaters, and all that is nuked are cities the US 1% do not give a shit about.

    [MORE]

    The ptb will probably lex Luther the San Andreas fault, rip the line up the Mississippi from New Madrid to Chicago, over to Buffalo, and just let those slip under the ocean, they will be all nuked anyways. Even the Waltons of Walmart have their own 1 billion \$ museum just for themselves , so no telling what the Ptb can come up with when brainstorming their next psyop.

    We all know JFK was a great plan, even adding conspiracy theorist label to researchers makes it impossible to solve with all the other cull de sacs to confuse and conflate, see 9/11 Arch’s and Engs for truth for ex. And then the other assassinations, watergate, Iran contra BIS scams, Iraq 1 and 2, with 9/11 in between, wmd, 2008, theft of trillions and trillions, tax payers footing the black ops 50 billion \$ plus per budget, times 75 years since ww2.

    They even tried a coup in 33 with Colonel Smedley Butler and the Bush family even then.

    The Russians have moved many of their most important production facilities and people far inland in Central Asia, well hidden under some indestructible mountains, and have developed over 12,000 massive civilian bunkers, where as the US has done nothing for their citizens.
    By the way, the Georgia Guidestones are a warning, not a joke, and they mean it. Russia know that the US have never faced war on their own soil unless fighting each other 180 years ago counts.

    Just reading the change in comments on Unz, as I have read them for ten years now, the US has no stomach what so ever for a real war with Russians, who lost 30 million people in WW2. Talk is cheap, the Russians know your leaders tried to eff them over in the 90’s, and pay back is a batch.

    My country is done, but I have been working on my family escape plan for 21 years , since sept 11.
    What have you guys been doing to prepare? And after falling for convid, how stupid are you guys to go back to russiarussia bad people again! Wasn’t the lies about orange man enough to wake you up?

  20. I agree Vlad should have annexed all of Noworossija in 2014; it would have been easy, and the Jews would have eaten the toad (except for Odessa, but a modus vivendi would have been found). But their actual ambitions were not as visible then; at least now Vlad has seized the opportunity to purge the rootless internationalists from the media (the benefits of which are incalculable).

    So what is going on in Ze´s little mind? – In the runup to the police action he at times gave the impression of losing his grip on goings-on – of getting blindsided by his own side´s provocations. – The late great Ukrainian philosopher Nikita Sergeiewich Chrushchew (then a lowly kommissar tasked with directing the defense of Stalingrad*) taught us “Time is Blood!” (true in more than one sense). It makes sense to resist to win time for conscriptions, adducing reserves or completing field fortifications. Ze has none of these, so what´s the point in futile resistance? Adm. Niebogatow did the “right” thing and was universally excoriated for it (as he knew he would but undertook nonetheless in the spirit of the martyrs) so it can be a morale thingy. It was already a success to deny the Russians an easy victory – but for whom? Ze´s insistence on “territorial integrity” is self-evidently idiotic, his bargaining position is getting worse by the day and mounting losses will put the Russians in a decidedly nonlenient way (this kind of provocation is Jewish SOP, cf. the assassination of Heydrich). If the Russians refuse to allow themselves to be provoked it is over – and they strike me as the least stupid adults in the room.

    Insofar as Ze has agency (which I doubt) he is so addicted to jewing that he fails to realize when it no longer works.

  21. The problem is that 99% of Americans have no idea of the kind of military provocation that NATO and the U.S. have carried out over the last 7 years.

    This was certainly true for me. Because of my ignorance of the extent of NATO involvement in Ukraine, I’d been thinking strictly in terms of tactics rather than strategy.

    Disagree. Somewhat. The logical solution would be to dismember the Frankenstein creation of an enlarged and engrossed Ukraine SSR by Lenin, Stalin and Khrushchev “donations”, first of ethnic Russian dominated provinces; secondly of Red Army conquests during WWII and latterly by Nikita plunking Crimea which is heavily Russian, on a purely, administrative “Slavic Brothers” basis within that aforesaid monster.

    So how do the Russians go about this dismemberment of the monster? Firstly, all of the eastern and southern provinces which have more Russian than Ukraine dialects, would gain a Texas, ca 1836 style status as independent, with the referendum proviso of joining Mama Bear.

    The Khazarian Mafiya revanchists would be replaced by genuine Ukrainians, who would be the new government of that ever fought-over “borderland”.

    In the third instance, referendums would be held in those Ruthenian, Hungarian, Romanian and Moldovan lands would have the options of deciding on their preferred homelands. Most probably those Carpathian peoples would break into their ethno-preferable entities.

    Finally, all these various entities would conjointly divorce the Uniate and fascistic Galicians, who became westernized under the rule of the Poles and the Austrians. They would either become an independent Uniatistan or would team up with Lithuania—NOT with Poland, with whom they have intense mutual hatred.

    In fact, the Galicians tend to hate all their neighbors. They would be required to disarm and observe strict, monitored neutrality. They can damn well stew in their own juices.

    Your assessment is well-structured and logical, although I believe you’re mistaken that Russia’s intervention in Ukraine hasn’t gone according to Russian expectations.

    Ukraine is a very big place, and their military was kitted out with a whole bunch of American weaponry and American training. And yet they’ve basically folded and been overrun and cornered.

    Stepping back to take the wider view, this particular military adventure may indeed be the tipping point for the world’s future – but I suspect the game is larger than just Russia (and China and India & etc) versus the West, an issue of which civilisational model dominates the Earth.

    This is an existential matter for human civilisation itself, because the Globalist agenda subordinates all nations, all humanity, to their drive for a New World Order in which they rule a One World Government and the rest of us (still living) “will all own nothing, and we will be happy”.

    FWIW, I’m rooting for Russia (and China and India & etc).

    Good question, what to do with those Galicians? Russians can’t really allow a hostile evil Nazi state on its border which could revert to opening biowarfare labs and hosting NATO forces, even covertly, as Ukraine has done. But the same will hold for the other East Europeans when Russia starts pushing NATO back to its old pre-1990 borders. The East Europeans hate the Russians so much that they will do anything to spite Russia such as they have already done by joining NATO. If they had stayed out of NATO and instead had only joined EU they could now sleep soundly at night without having to worry if they’ll wake up in ruins. Although there are a few NATO countries that are not in the EU and a few EU countries not in NATO it seems that the two are linked and especially when it comes to allowing membership for East Europeans. They’re not smart enough to realise that being in NATO threatens their security rather than providing it. De-militarising, or rather de-NATOfying Eastern Europe shouldn’t present too much of a problem for Russia, as missile salvoes targeting NATO bases in those countries could do the job, but changing the mindset of these people is something else.

    The Nazis had the advantage of not pulling punches to avoid civilian casualties and were eager to destroy critical infrastructure.

    This typical Boobus Americanus warmonger drivel is quite galling when one considers the history of the US and their warfare tactics like the Cherokee trail of tears, Sherman’s march to the Sea, the burning of Atlanta, the burning of the Shenandoa, the flattening of Caen and all of Normandy and Brittany, the firebombing of Dresden, Pforzheim and Hamburg, the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the napalming of Hanoi, the depleted uranium used against Belgrade, Shock and Awe in Baghdad, and much, much more.

    One critical piece of information missing here is that the residents of those cities that the Russian army is not flattening are ethnic Russians. The Wehrmacht certainly did not go into ethnic German cities like Danzig and flatten them during the war of German liberation in Pomerania and West Prussian in September 1939. When, and if, the Russian army actually invades Western Ukraine, then we will be able to see how much Putin cares about the lives of those western Ukrainian Holodomor survivors. The Russians in Eastern Ukraine whose lives Putin is busy sparing are in reality the ethnic Russians that Stalin sent in to occupy Ukraine after the he genocided all the Ukrainians during the Holodomor.

    Although I am generally pro-Russian in this civil war, we should not forget that Putin’s actions are proof that existing anywhere along the Russian border while having an large ethnic Russian minority can be very hazardous to a countries health and well being. Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania are in a very precarious position and really should stop provoking Russia. Not because Russia is “good”, but because their current behavior is bordering on suicidal.

Of course if Britain and the US hadn’t been providing Stalin with Hurricanes, Aerocobras, anti-aircraft cannons and most importantly, high octane aviation fuel, more than likely the 6th Army would have held out until spring when relief would have arrived.

    Similarly if it was the Ukrainian Airforce who were enforcing a no-fly zone for Russian helicopters, jets and drones simultaneous to Ukrainian SU-25’s and bayraktars plucking off Russian armored columns the situation would look much different in Ukraine.

    The ease with which Russia achieved air supremacy is proof of the ineffectiveness and inferiority of Nato anti-aircraft technology as much as it is proof of a Nato double-cross.

    Even without the USA being involved, many nations in the Asia Pacific region were forming their own alliances with each other for mutual security. The Chinese belief that the USA is behind everything in the QUAD is not true at all. Even without American involvement, many nations in the region are slowly building military alliances with each other.
    There is a Japan-Australia defence industrial agreement, where Tokyo and Canberra came together on their own without any influence whatever from Washington. There is also a Japan-Vietnam defence industrial agreement, where Tokyo and Hanoi came together mutually on their own, without any influence whatever from Washington. There is a very strong intelligence exchange mechanism built up in between Japan and India, in between the Indian intelligence agency RAW (Research & Analysis Wing) and the Japanese Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office (Naicho ), all without any involvement of the USA or CIA. Japan has via the Overseas Development assistance funded highway and military infrastructure development (highways mostly) for the Indian Armed forces on the Indo-China border in Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh/South Tibet as well as Sikkim borders. The USA has had zero influence on this. The Communist Vietnamese & Australians have developed a very strong intelligence exchange mechanism, which is very helpful for the Communist Vietnamese because Australia is part of the 5 nation alliance, having access to electronic intelligence. Japan is funding Vietnamese purchase of military hardware from Russia and Indians are offering the Vietnamese training in one of their premier Submarine training facilities. Both the Indian Navy and the Vietnamese People’s Navy are now operating the same Russian class submarines. All happening spontaneously and organically in the region without any American initiative or direction.
    BTW, the QUAD started as naval exercises and alliances. First in between the Indian Navy and United States Navy, later the Royal Australian Navy joined in followed by the the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force/ Japanese Navy joining in. And all this started at the initiative and the invitation of the Indians, not the Americans. It was the Government of India which first proposed the Malabar Naval exercises.

    According to Ukrainian counterintelligence, a possible assassination attempt on President Zelenskyj has been stopped. A group of Russian saboteurs, led by a secret service agent, was arrested in the city of Uzhgorod in the border triangle between Ukraine, Slovakia and Hungary, the Unian agency reported on Tuesday night. In addition to the attack on Zelenskyy in Kyiv, the order of the approximately 25 men also included the execution of a series of acts of sabotage in the government district and in other parts of the Ukraine……

    1) the fast, shock & awe American way, raze them to the ground and walk in;
    2) the arduous, suicidal way, send in infantry and tanks to take them street by street, building by building, and suffer horrible casualties with no guarantee of eventual success;
    3) the slow, tedious, classical way, to minimise both casualties and destruction, lay siege.

    Regarding Russian unpreparedness to face strong resistance, when you design a military operation, your plan A is always the worst-case scenario imaginable while the best-case scenario isn’t plan B nor C; at best, it’s plan D.

    I am shocked at the miscalculation in thinking economic sanctions on Russia would bring them to their knees. The opposite is true. Russia is self-sufficient and is not dependent on imports.

    Exactly. I think Putin bungled up with Ukraine being “run by unpopular Nazis” and that “Ukraine as a distinct nation does not exist” but Putin is extremely smart. He knows Russia’s strengths. Sure Russia will be hit for a while but it has cards up its sleeves. Cards more powerful than VISAs and Mastercard.

    50% of Europe’s food come from Russia+Belarus+Ukraine, 40% of Europe’s energy needs is in Kremlin’s hands, 30% of global wheat comes from Russia+Belarus+Ukraine, 25 % of global exports of barley comes from Russia+Belarus+Ukraine.
    35% of the Potash of the World comes from Russia+Belarus+Ukraine and 15% of Urea of the World comes from Russia+Belarus+Ukraine. Urea and Potash go into fertilizers and thus global food supply is highly dependent on that region. Especially when the World is seeing rising inflation including in Western countries and right now in spring time, we have planting time. If energy and agriculture prices go up, it can easily have an effect on the dollar, euro and the yen and cause pain to people around the World including the West. Russia also produces 40% of artificial blue sapphires which is essential for semi-conductor manufacturing, Russia provides global Neon gas, Titanium, Palladium…you name it, they are central to all kind of supply chains. Now if Russia tells the West that since the West has placed sanctions on Russia, Russia can demand that the West settle it’s payment in Roubles. Russia can demand that in retaliation. Imagine what will happen then? The West will have to buy roubles and that will prop up the value of the rouble (which has been falling lately for some time). LOL So the Western nations will have to end up reversing the fall of the rouble and make Russia rich LOL. However this could be problematic for Russia, as there are not that many roubles in circulation.
    Now even idiotic Biden’s joke USA is running to the Iranians and Venezuelans for help. LMFAO. How the mighty have to bend!!! However Venezuela’s oil industry has been all screwed up by mismanagement by Chavez and Maduro idiotic misrule. Will take a couple of years to undo damage and get it running on full. So even if fat incompetent Maduro wants to help President Slow Joe, they cannot do much right now.
    One more point is if the Russian Armed forces are really on their way to destroy the Ukrainian Army, I think this could be used by Putin to bring Kyiv to the negotiating table. If you do not have Army, there is not much you can do, until you go rebel mode and make Ukraine into an Afghanistan like place and make Russian forces bleed. But that would destroy Ukraine. Very likely the Ukrainians will be forced to make concessions as Russia wants it.
    The Russians may be following Field Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov’s very practical point of view during the Napoleonic invasion of Russia, that Moscow is just a city full of buildings, as long as the Russian Army exists somewhere, the French can ever be sure of victory. So that is why the Russians may have gone towards destroying the Ukrainian Army first leaving the cities alone. And later the Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz’s theories come in place. Remember that Clausewitz was in the Tsarist Russian Army for a while and Lenin was a big fan of his and Chairman Mao Zedong was too, and thus affected the Communist Soviet and Communist Chinese strategic traditions. Especially Clausewitz’s aphorism “War is the continuation of policy with other means.”

  48. I think Putin’s demands are quite reasonable.

    I guess Putin could agree to allow U.S. nuclear missile systems in Poland and Romania if Biden agrees to allow comparable Russian systems to be deployed in Cuba, Venezuela and Mexico.

    Numerous times already I have made the case that Putin’s “demands“, “red lines“, or “ultimatums” were not only highly unreasonable but violated Russia’s own treaty obligations, and coupling these “demands” with military threats were clear violations of the United Nations Charter. Putin was clearly engaging in bullying, which is why the almost universal appraisal, even by RT commentators on its Crosstalk show, was that he was making demands that he “knew” would be rejected, as of course they would have to have been, because NATO was not going to publicly appease a power-hungry dictator. In other words, Putin’s package of demands was merely a fig leaf (though not transparent to everybody), intended to provide a pretext for the invasion that had already been planned, due to more ambitious motivations.

    It is noteworthy that in his response, quoted above, Johnson additionally resorted to conjectural reasoning, based on a false premise as well as a flawed analogy, to explain his opinion. First, he conflated Aegis missile defense systems in western Romania and western Poland (the latter of which is expected to become operational at the end of the year) with an imaginary offensive nuclear missile system, without having mentioned that Russia had already installed nuclear-capable missiles threatening much of northeastern European cities four years ago. Having addressed this specific topic less than three days ago, I do not want to repeat myself and refer to that message #145 in a different thread:

    https://www.unz.com/article/why-nazis-in-ukraine/#comment-5241469
    (March 19, 2022 at 8:15 pm GMT)

    Second, the analogy Johnson invoked by citing Mexico not only confirms that he has taken Europe out of the equation and regards the conflict as one being almost exclusively between Russia and the US. Yet even under those false premises the comparison is completely asymmetric. The United States has ten cities with a municipal population over one million. Exactly half of these cities, and their surrounding regions, would be within the 500 km range of the Russian Iskander missiles, referred to in my recent message linked to above, if their launchers were placed in Mexico: Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, and San Diego. Other major cities, such as Tucson and El Paso, could be hit with shorter range missiles. In contrast, Moscow is located too far east for these kinds of offensive ballistic missiles to reach it from any NATO base, and Saint Petersburg could only be reached if such missiles were launched from rather vulnerable countries of Estonia or Latvia.

    Not only does Russia not need to fear a land invasion, its most populated cities are relatively safe from missile attacks, while much of Europe has been under threat. The “security” claim that Russia has cited is exposed as phony. In summary, to justify his claim of reasonableness, Johnson had to ignore the facts, disregard the context, confuse a defensive missile system with an offensive one, and concoct a false analogy that left the core issue unmentioned. The entire rationale he has presented occurs in an imaginary realm. Either he presumes the readers as extremely credulous, or he is himself factually and geographically challenged.

    The Neocons/Lib-cons have cynically used the more-than-willing ((Jewish)) establishment as cover for their own velvet glove, Anglo-imperialist Judeofascism for decades. This is what Neoconservatism amounts to.

    That is the problem with anti-Jewish criticism. The “culture of critique” would be as influential as vegetarianism were it not for support from the establishment in Western countries, most importantly in the UK and US. This is never discussed.

    Take a look at state of the law schools, https://bariweiss.substack.com/p/the-takeover-of-americas-legal-system?s=w . This change (rather like the displacement of Jewish dominance in Hollywood by the BIPOC lobby) appeared without any indication in any of the publications I’ve monitored. This should have been impossible — the change is large and highly significant. It would also be impossible without strong support from some kind of non-Jewish organization. Off hand, I’d say that the strong support comes from the urban political establishment, of which Jewish organizations are large part, but which is not predominantly Jewish — it’s more predominantly BIPOC, what they used to call “chocolate cities”.

    The Jews I’ve spent time around aren’t very bright — yes, even the college professors. You get the occasional exception, but these exceptions are social isolates. What Jews are is bimodal thinkers, legalists, hairsplitters. Easily manipulated. Give them an cause of indeterminate and undeterminable merit, phrase it in absolute and good for the Jews, and they’re out to enforce it before you finish talking. Not only that, but they don’t like changing their minds — consider continued Jewish support for the Biden Administration.

    The suppression of Trump supporters vs. treatment of Antifa (or for that matter, the treatment of Ukraine vs. treatment of the Russian Federation) show this clearly.

    Advice: stop assaulting holograms, smoke, and mirrors. Try to figure out is really behind the attempted genocide of US / Western society.

    And face facts. The cities are gone, they won’t back, the rest of the world’s population has been carrying them since the Big MAC era, about 1970, 5 mortal decades ago. The urban political establishment is waging a no-quarters insurgency because it has known for the past 5 decades that it is a zombie, dead but too dumb to lie down, and its only hope of continued existence is to mercilessly deceive and squeeze non-urban areas (which includes US suzerainty of various other countries). You’re going to have to take down the entire zombie urban political establishment to win, not just “Jewish masterminds”.

    So — if you want to do more than spend your energy attacking a diversion, consider the enablers as well as the near puppet.

    This is not the end, but the beginning of a “new world order” which pits one set of globalist technocrats against another set of globalist technocrats fighting, at OUR expence, for a prime seat at the “global governace”, agenda 2030, transhumanist, totalitarian “green new deal” table.

    Should Russia, China, et al, reverse their declared commitment to the implimentation of agenda 2030, CBDC’s, “sustainable developement”, bio-security, etc, then maybe we peasants can, post nuclear holocaust, rest on our laurels and let the winning side ptb take care of the world order for us. – Oh the fucking irony!

    The fact is that unless “we the peasants” turn our collective backs on existing political and economic power structures, thereby disempowering them, whilst creating for ourselves alternative systems of mutual cooperation and the means to care for and support ourselves, withoutout recourse to centralised power structures, nothing is going to change!

    It wasn’t the “siege” that defeated the 6th army. It was general Winter, and more importantly, the loss of Luftwaffe air supremacy. Of course if Britain and the US hadn’t been providing Stalin with Hurricanes, Aerocobras, anti-aircraft cannons and most importantly, high octane aviation fuel, more than likely the 6th Army would have held out until spring when relief would have arrived.

    So it was the Ukocans who destroyed the 6th army. An interesting and original thought. I have never thought of that. Are you also an analyst, by any chance?

    @Been_there_done_that

    Numerous times already I have made the case that Putin’s “demands“, “red lines“, or “ultimatums” were not only highly unreasonable …

    But he did announce them and both Nato and Ukriane knew all about them

    Putin was clearly engaging in bullying, which is why the almost universal appraisal, even by RT commentators on its Crosstalk show, was that he was making demands that he “knew”

    Putin is not the first Russian leader to articulate that those things were against Russian interests and demand they stop and be reversed; maybe Russia is just a bully?

    NATO was not going to publicly appease a power-hungry dictator

    Russia is the judge of its own interests insofar as they motivate it to action.

    In other words, Putin’s package of demands was merely a fig leaf (though not transparent to everybody), intended to provide a pretext for the invasion that had already been planned, due to more ambitious motivations.

    He has been in power for over 20 years.

    Second, the analogy Johnson invoked by citing Mexico not only confirms that he has taken Europe out of the equation and regards the conflict as one being almost exclusively between Russia and the US. Yet even under those false premises the comparison is completely asymmetric. The United States has ten cities with a municipal population over one million. Exactly half of these cities, and their surrounding regions, would be within the 500 km range of the Russian Iskander missiles, referred to in my recent message linked to above, if their launchers were placed in Mexico: Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, San Antonio, and San Diego. Other major cities, such as Tucson and El Paso, could be hit with shorter range missiles. In contrast, Moscow is located too far east for these kinds of offensive ballistic missiles to reach it from any NATO base, and Saint Petersburg could only be reached if such missiles were launched from rather vulnerable countries of Estonia or Latvia.

    “The Sandinistas are just two days’ drive from Harlingen, Texas” President Reagan said that.

    Reagan Has a Texas-Sized Sales Job
    By David Maraniss and
    Washington Post Staff Writer; staff researcher T. James Munoz contributed to this reportMarch 16, 1986
    The citizens of Harlingen would like to know what kind of car President Reagan drives. They are also curious as to whether he ever stops to stretch his legs during long trips. And they wonder if perhaps he exceeds the speed limit when he hits the open spaces. Answers to those questions would help them figure out what Reagan meant recently when he declared that Nicaragua was “a privileged sanctuary for terrorists and subversives just two days’ drive from Harlingen, Tex.”
    The driving distance between Harlingen, distribution hub of the Lower Rio Grande Valley, and Managua, capital of Nicaragua, is 2,028 miles

    And he mounted a nasty proxy war against Nicaragua, and would have invaded the country with US troops in due course if they continued to defy the US.

    Not only does Russia not need to fear a land invasion

    Maybe it doesn’t but does anyway..

    The “security” claim that Russia has cited is exposed as phony.

    To say it is phony means you know (how?) it is not sincerely held. While what Russia has done is not self defence it is at least ostensibly a preventative attack, just as the US invasion of Iraq was.

    While yes, the final Russian victory is pretty much ensured, blowhard articles like this one do more harm than good. While the task in question was and is immensely complicated, it is obvious, that the Russian army did not demonstrate much in the way of tactical or operational excellence, achieving success through superior firepower and technical capabilities (though not numbers, Ukrainian forces had more manpower than Russians in every combat area, and except for Mariupol this still may remain true), rather than skill of commanders and soldiers (except in the LDNR sector, where troops have a wealth combat experience), at a substantial cost, and probably much slower than was initially expected. In most places the Russian advance had stalled upon encountering major enemy troop formations (except for the quick defeat of Ukrainians at Kherson, from which the rest of the southern advances had followed), and though Ukrainians had not achieved any successes beyond company level and failed to make any substantial pusback, neither they have collapsed quickly.

    This article reads as severe propaganda which it purports to be fighting.

    A few minutes of web searching reveals nothing regarding claims of Defense Threat Reduction Agency funding of Ukrainian biolabs outside of a cadre of echo-chamber exposé sites, like Unz Review.

    I personally have no problem with believing that the DoD funds bioweapon work all over the world — just as they fund nuclear weapons (the so-called “deterrent”). But this is just my belief. I also have no trouble with believing that the world is more complex than I believe it is.

    Below is a link that purports a survey of the “evidence” for DTRA biolabs, proffered to buttress beliefs such as those exposed here by Mike Whitney. You have to read absurdly into these exhibits to come up with the thought-grenades that Whitney is casually lobbing into discourse:

    Dr Chee Ming Wong’s substack discusses DTRA Biolabs:
    https://drwong.substack.com/p/biolabs-in-ukraine?s=r

    I suggest you may want to skip perusal of this actual substack when I crib Dr. Chee Ming Wong’s substack bio:

    //…Bioenergetics, with a background in video games visual works, anesthetics & intensive care medicine.//

    Yes, the above is for real: Dr. Long Wang specializes in
    energy sculpting and benign pharmacology possibly having studied at the Mercurio Arboria institute.

    “Bring home the mother lode Barry.”

    Note, the prolific Dr. Wang has supplied one article for his substack.

    Meanwhile Whitney has a flourishing career echoing crap like Dr. Long Wang’s bullshit and weaving it into cryptic theories via countless diatribes. Yet no matter how fantastic his tapestries, Whitney never exceeds conflating a menagerie of beliefs into a wildlife refuge zoology, and proffering its manure as nuggets of wisdom in keeping with Unz’ continuous cycle of questions-begging and ((ju-ju)).

    Pls consider that when the factoids supplied by an author don’t check out, the image the author presents is just organized noise, not an insightful view. Whitney writes to tell people what to think, not inform them, which makes him a worse ideological hazard than he it purports to warn you about. You don’t need Whitney to tell you that all the news for USA audiences is massive propaganda. It’s obvious. Whitney makes it even worse!

    Russia may well be succeeding in its campaign in Ukraine, but what Whitney and Unz are sourcing as analysis is astounding ideological clap-trap.

    I’m at a total loss to comprehend how wealthy free men can intellectually stagger around the commons like drunken idiots pretending they’re the smartest guys in the room as they openly totter into the furniture causing themselves and their guests huge bruises which they numbly parade as merit badges, but Unz is a hub for such genius.

Western supporters of Putin simplynsi not want to seriously consider those reports. Of course, Russia has been making headway. But it’s been overall a tough slog. The Russian propaganda machine is trying to spin it in such a way for the Ukrainian people to simply give up. Well, when you’re fighting for your life, when you’re convictions about sovereignty and self rule govern your actions, that’s why they are fiercely defending their land to the death. The Western supporters of Putin desperately want the Ukraine to lay down and become enslaved. But there is increasing Russian citizen opposition to Putin’s War.

    Briefly about Ukraine. 21.03.2022

    1. “Kinzhaly”.
    The use of hypersonic weapons in Ukraine has become a very significant event. Russia has demonstrated a weapon that can be launched from long distances, which easily overcomes the existing focal air defence system of Ukraine and destroys complex targets. The Russian Defence Ministry hinted at “other warheads”. The hint, of course, is not aimed at Ukraine. The Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation showed a “cartoon” to the general public, and the Ukrainian public did not like this “cartoon” at all.

    2. Kiev.
    Against the background of fighting to the west and east of Kiev, the main topic was the strike on the shopping centre in the north-western part of Kiev. The cries about the “attack on a peaceful object” were easily interrupted by the invoice when it turned out that the shopping centre was used as a parking lot for Katyushas and self-propelled guns, as well as as an ammunition depot. With the help of technical intelligence data, the position of the Ukrainian artillery was calculated and its valuables destroyed. After that, Ukraine began to prepare a law prohibiting photographing positions of Ukrainian equipment on pain of prison. However, the Russian means of objective control of the prison will not be scared off, well, and citizens reporting on the location and positions of the Ukrainian occupation troops will just do it a little more anonymously and cautiously. Near Chernihiv, no changes.

    [MORE]

    3. Sumy
    There was an attempt to carry out a provocation with chemicals in the area of the city, which the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation had warned about a few days before. It turned out somehow completely rotten and a few hours after the leak, it was announced that it had been eliminated. But, of course, new provocations with the “use of chemical weapons in Ukraine” are inevitable. It is necessary to somehow take minds off the topic of biological laboratories. Moreover, the owners of the “White Helmets” and the Ukrainian Nazis are just about the same people. So the movie about “Russia poisons Ukraine with chemicals” is still in prospect.

    4. Kharkiv.
    There are fights to the north of the city. Chuguev – under the AFU. Balakleya and most of Izyum are under the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The AFU is still sitting in the southern part of the city (Izyum). There are battles at the Izyum-Slavyansk highway, as well as at Kamenka.

    5. LPR.
    Fighting in the area of Lisichansk, Severodonetsk and Popasnaya. No significant advances were reported.

    6. Maryinka/Avdiivka.
    A small advance at Maryinka. Avdiivka without major changes. Fighting also continues at Verkhnetoretsky. The AFU continues to try to cling to this village.

    7. Ugledar.
    Ugledar itself has not yet been taken. Fighting continues in the direction of the Marinka-Kurakhovo highway. Their results will most likely become clear tomorrow. Velikaya Novoselka is under the control of the AFU. Stepnoye, Sladkoye and Taramchuk are under control of the army of the DPR.

    8. Mariupol.
    The clearing of the city continues, there are small advances developing. Cases of attempts by the defenders to mingle with the civilian population and escape from the city are becoming more frequent. The less determined ones are beginning to gradually peel off from the main core of the defenders and trying to save their own lives. According to Pushilin, the capture of the city will take another week or even more.

    9. Nikolaev.
    There are no major changes. Severe airstrikes on the identified targets and positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue around the city. Kim’s “counteroffensive” is no longer remembered. In Kherson, they began to disperse the Maidauns (pro-Ukraine demonstrators) by force. A step in the right direction. Filtration and counter-terrorism measures are gradually being activated throughout the territory liberated from the Nazis.

    10. Zaporozhye.
    Without major changes, only local battles were noted. There is also no significant progress near Nikopol.

    I think the best comparison is with Paris 1871. Having captured most of the French forces, the Germans laid siege to Paris and maintained it for months without attempting to go in, knowing that the warren of narrow streets and alleys would greatly favour the defenders – in fact, the remaining French politicians screamed at the top of their voices how eager they were for fighting street to street. The main difference is that Napoleon III had surrendered honourably.

    Name the Jew, or it ain’t true.

    LoL, so true. Jews are the point of the spear for Finance Capital. The West has long been run by the donor class, who in turn want to own the world. They could give a damn about blood, soil, or nationality. Jews are rootless cosmopolitans. Zionism was supposed to fix the Jewish character by anchoring them to blood and soil and nation. Finance capital is international capital, as if flows around the world looking for gains.

    The NSDAP Germans and others referred to the finance class as the “international.” Stalin during his purges referred to them as the “Rootless Cosmopolitan Elite.”

    The only word we have for that which opposes the international is Nationalism. But Putin and Russia are building something else … a civilizational space. NSDAP wanted their civilizational space, to return all the Germans back to the Reich. Russia wants a safe civilizational space for its people to live in and not be attacked. The Reich was attacked by Globo-Homo of the day (directed by London and Wall Street), and Russia was attacked in the 90’s.

    The post soviet union space is now being re-cast. Russians are looking backward to the Kievan Rus, Tsar Nicholas, Byzantium, the Orthodox church and other elements to recapitulate this living space.

    The litmus test for whether or not you belong to the Russian space is Gay Parades. Putin draws lines for where there are Russian speaking peoples. So, I guess it is no gay parades and Russian speakers define the space.

    For example, today’s Ukraine is a-historical. It does not fit into Russian history (the new space), as the western part was at times part of Poland or Austro-Hungarian empire. The now Russian speaking regions are considered part of the Russian space due to language, despite Stalin putting Russian people there in recent history.

    The desire for the Anglo Saxon ruled west to make war has not changed since the Atlantacist construct was created in London with the BOE in 1694. That would be debt spreading private banks, stock owned companies that become perpetual, stocks on-sold into markets, and governments selling public bonds into those markets. It also included the invention of parliamentary democracy, so that the public sanctioned their debtor position, in something like a Stockholm Syndrome. The string pullers still want to own the world, nothing new is under the sun.

    “Today there is such a test for the loyalty of this government, a kind of pass to that “happy” world — the world of excess consumption — the world of visible ‘freedom.’ Do you know what this test is?

    That very powerful world, is the international, the WEF Davos types, who operate sometimes without instructions as their motives are “rootless and international” to make money, and to then live in gated communities anywhere in the world, or even underground in bunkers. They are pro-immigration and destruction of blood and soil, because their god is money and themselves. They string pull their parliamentary governments to get their way.

    Larry thinks the Biden administration is bumbling, and he is right. It is bumbling because the puppeteers are becoming discombobulated, especially with China’s industrial capitalism constantly winning. The WEF finance capitalists and hidden privateers are moving their puppet strings as they have since 1694 (really before that while in Amsterdam), and trying to move the world, but it isn’t moving like it used to.

    Russia was defeated in the 90’s and had been turned into so many dollarized debt instruments. Yet, somehow, especially after Putin came into power, Russia has carved out its own civilizational space. Putin is now living rent free in the “internationals” head space.

    The string pullers offensive war machine, which includes deep water navies and air power projection is being defeated by land power and close in defense A2AD.

    The WEF finance capitalist crowd has even turned inward on its own populations to then carve them up.

    The fifth columnist Atlantacist are still swarming around the Russian Central Bank, but many of the Oligarchs are fleeing, especially after Putin’s “Rootless Cosmopolitan” speech. OH NO! We’ve been found out! Says the Jew as he flees, while clutching his international capital won at usury.

    It might take somebody other than Putin to deal with remnants of the Atlantacist fifth column, especially since Putin is economically illiterate.

    It was the siege to a large extent although General Winter helped. Also the sheer number of troops to be supplied defeated German efforts – previous encirclements in Demyansk and Kholm were kept supplied by air at heavy cost to the Luftwaffe, but there were far fewer soldiers needing supplied in these cases.

    According to John Erikson’s “The Road to Berlin” (carefully based or primary sources), the Russians themselves were surprised by the number of enemy troops caught in the Operation Saturn encirclement. German assaults to break the ring failed and Goering’s commitments to resupply by air were never realistic ( lack of JU52’s, inadequate airfields, bad weather, poor or non-existent fighter cover, hopelessly large supply requirements for ammunition, fuel, food etc.). When the Russians captured the 6th Army rear supply bases it was effectively all over,

    A terrific interview.

    Accept that outcomes are uncertain. Unfortunately, Probability and Logic have given way to magical, or at least wishful, thinking in the US and the West.

    Many of you probably chose the same course of action as I did throughout the Covid madness of declining to even try to persuade the rather obviously unpersuadable. The same mindset reigns with Ukraine.

    Okay, enough broad strokes, my point is that what is presented to the public by regime media isn’t simply a modern version of classic war propaganda. Per your mother’s admonition about crossing your eyes, the ruling and governing classes either believe what they’ve been shoveling out, or are no longer able to resist it publicly or behind the curtain.

    Sometimes, and this is one of them, the devil isn’t in the details. Interviewer and interviewee herein among the exceptions, as a rule what we hear from what passes for the national security establishment is exactly ass-backwards.

    They focus on juvenile discussions of Russia’s weaknesses. Worse, that it’s all the fault of that terrible, awful Putin . . .

    Meanwhile, any reasonably intelligent and honestly informed middle schooler would struggle to identify our (US/NATO) strengths vis-à-vis Russia.

    And, no, having the Fake News on your team is an unexpurgated weakness and increasingly so. They fixed that little red wagon in service to Hillary and four years in pursuit of “Trump Must Go!”

    So let’s apply some common sense regardless of how bad it makes those responsible for the Sad Story that was our Unipolar Moment feel about themselves.

    Russia has resurged. The Russian sovereign has consolidated and is coherently pursuing Russia’s national interest and that of Russians outside the federation.

    No amount of foot-stomping will change that it spent the last 20 years methodically planning for a do-over of the post-Cold War settlement.

    The USG is weak like it has never before been with an illegitimate “Yeltsin” installed in the White House and foreign infiltration throughout the government the rule rather than the exception. Western elites have been hellbent to destroy their economies and enslave their citizens through Climate Change/Green New Deal/Build Back Better . . .

    Oh, and say what you will about Putin, he’s got the beginnings of a commodities super-cycle going for him too, which for him and Russia is nice.

    The ruling and governing classes in the US are tired, decadent and utterly desperate for CCP China to take over leadership. They get to relax a bit as local overlords of China’s most valuable tributary.

    As my early comments attest, I referenced The Second Chechen War NOT as it has mindlessly become, Russia’s purported template. That is its Syria operations. But for the 15K in losses it suffered evidencing its reconstituted national will to achieve its vital objectives.

    Ukrainians ain’t Chechens. Even the worst of the worst Galicians aren’t. If they were they wouldn’t have a cross-dressing former comedian puppet headlining. Russia didn’t pull the trigger only to buy itself a continuation in one form or another of the last eight years. It will take the North, East and across the South to Odessa, creating a land bridge to Transnistria and cutting a rump Ukraine off from the sea.

    In the end the French authorities gave in and at least a token force of German troops entered, although the streets were symbolically cleaned after they left. The internal contradictions among the French gave rise to the Paris Commune, which though left-wing also contained nationalist die-hards who objected to the pragmatic acceptance of doing a deal with the Germans. The fighting street by street did take place as the pragmatists based at Versailles suppressed the Commune, although at the cost of about 800 dead in their own ranks. The Germans who remained nearby gazed on contemptuously as the French killed each other.

When we gambled in WWII that we could defeat the Japanese Empire on its own turf in the Eastern Pacific at the same time that we were supporting the UK in Europe, we had to pull atomic weapons out of the sleeve.

    In a rational world with rational actors, you might have a point, but this is Washington DC. The US regime is willing to kill “others” as well as their morons in costume for any cause that benefits the US’s goal of taking over the entire world. Why else have a nuclear first strike option as stated policy?

    With a first strike, they may be willing to gamble away many US cities and millions of dead if they think they can hold on to power AND gain territory, territory next to their other target, China.

    What’s happening right now is the US losing its grip on the world as the Dollar fades in relevance, as NATO, the US proxy, is shown up to be a bullshit organization that won’t attack the very State it purports to protect against and the US economy headed for a depression. The controllers are going to lose everything unless they take some bold gamble.

    It’s war crimes tribunals from here to as far as the eye can see if the US loses its strangle hold on what other nations do. The Bush clan, the Clinton mob, Obama, all the generals, all the living congress critters, the still living black robed supreme slime, many of the military grunts, etc all face their own existential threat. If it looks like TPTsB are going to lose control, they have nothing to lose by rolling the dice and I believe that’s where we are now with Russia and China willing to call the US’s bluff.

    The bulk of the morons in the US will cheer should the US launch a first strike at least for the few minutes they have to draw breath.

    The atlantic, or the atlantic council are “international finance elites,” so listening to them is always good to find out what the enemy us up to.

    ________________
    MacGregor Quote:

    “We have a huge problem with a class of so-called elites, the people who are wealthy, very wealthy in many cases and they are, as the Russians used to call certain individuals many, many years ago, rootless cosmopolitans,” he told the Serbian American Voters Alliance in an October 2021 speech uncovered by Matt Gertz at MediaMatters.

    ___________________

    For those understandably unfamiliar with this terminology, “rootless cosmopolitans” is an anti-Semitic euphemism for Jews that was popularized under Stalin in the Soviet Union. Adolf Hitler also repeatedly referred to Jews as disloyal cosmopolitans, lamenting in his manifesto Mein Kampf that “it is no longer princes or their courtesans who contend and bargain about state frontiers, but the inexorable cosmopolitan Jew who is fighting for his own dominion over the nations.” In other words, there is exactly one type of person who uses this sort of language in everyday conversation.

    In case his audience missed the point, though, Macgregor added: “They live above all of this, they have no connection to the country. There is nothing there that holds them in place, and they are largely responsible, in my judgment, for the condition that we are in today.”

    The context that Macgregor used was in relation to a conversation he had with Indian Immigrants.

    To paraphrase his conversation with the immigrants, “Are you worried about the economy, because we are?”

    Indian reply, “No not really. We can always go home if things get bad.”

    “They live above all of this, they have no connection to the country. There is nothing there that holds them in place, and they are largely responsible, in my judgment, for the condition that we are in today.”

    Macgregor is exactly right, and the Indian immigrants can be lumped into a group together with our (((Friends))). They have no connection to the country, and could give a damn about their fellows, and are in it for themselves.

    If found out, they flee clutching their ill-gotten gains.

    At the very root of it all, is this notion that finance capital must flow around the world seeking out gains. That is a lie. SOVEREIGN money can develop other economies and does not need the International to Finance anything. Or, nations can do for themselves using their own labor, and not immigrants.

    Everything the rootless cosmopolitan says is a lie, and is his/her way of making the world safe for their predations. The emit propaganda something like a skunk emits a fog of stink, as both an offensive and defensive mechanism.

    The Strategic Value Of India

    From 40:30 minutes, ex Ambassador Mulford says
    The lesson to be learnt from that, you CANNOT have a policy of DICTATION to India. It is a SOVEREIGN STATE and regards itself very very STRONGLY as a Sovereign State.….and they developed a sound doubt (due to US sanctions during India’s nuclear tests) as the United States as a dependable partner. And this interfered across the board for all kind of things and damaged our relationship with India………. The intensity of US management of weapons operations with India or anybody else maybe justified and desirable but it is not EASY TO MANAGE WITH INDIA. BECAUSE, THEY DON’T WANT PEOPLE WANDERING AROUND THEIR COUNTRY FROM OUR DEFENCE DEPARTMENT. Checking up to see how they are dealing with the weapons. How they took care of them. If they are honouring every aspect of the agreements. So on… This has been an instructive lesson and it took us some years to build back. And the key thing that helped us was the decision by president George W. Bush to introduce a Civil Nuclear negotiations which ended with a major treaty on India’s access to Civil Nuclear Technology (Malla: This is despite, India dishonouring it’s agreement with Canada earlier and using a nuclear reactor built with Canadian help for it’s nuclear weapons program). And that restored our relations. And I hope we keep those lessons in mind because it is very easy to overdo things. AND WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO GIVE INDIA, TOP OF THE LINE TECHNOLOGY IN RADAR, WEAPONRY & OTHER THINGS.”

    So let me get this straight. Americans say “We cannot dictate to India, India strongly considers itself an Sovereign State”. It looks like the Americans are walking w.r.t India. LOL. Trying to please arrogant, haughty India with technology transfers even when India breaks agreements at whims. Does not seem like slaves of slaves. It seems the West is acting slavish to India.

Note the similarities between today’s Russia and NSDAP Germany. History may rhyme, but it does not repeat. Russia in the 90’s was Weimar, and today is rhyming with WW2.

    Novorossiya (new Russia) will likely include the red and yellow areas in below map. It also includes the valuable Soviet developed iron ore mines and factories of Kryvyi Rih west of the Dnieper river.

    Looking at this map I believe that the most advantageous end state for Russia would be the creation of a new independent country, call it Novorossiya, on the land east of the Dnieper and south along the coast that holds a majority ethnic Russian population and that, in 1922, had been attached to the Ukraine by Lenin. That state would be politically, culturally and militarily aligned with Russia.

    This would eliminate Ukrainian access to the Black Sea and create a land bridge towards the Moldavian breakaway Transnistria which is under Russian protection.

    The rest of the Ukraine would be a land confined, mostly agricultural state, disarmed and too poor to be build up to a new threat to Russia anytime soon. Politically it would be dominated by fascists from Galicia which would then become a major problem for the European Union.

    The Western Ukraine wasn’t even a part of the Soviet Union at the time of that hunger that the Ukrainians like to call Holodomor. So, they couldn’t’ve possibly been “the survivors”.

    The Russians in Eastern Ukraine … are in reality the ethnic Russians that Stalin sent in to occupy Ukraine after the he genocided all the Ukrainians during the Holodomor.

    Your brain is full of garbage. The territories of the South-Eastern Ukraine have always been ethnically Russian (at least, long before any “holodomor”). Have you even heard of the Donetsk-Krivorozhskaya Republic? I don’t suppose you have. This territory in the east of Ukraine was formed as an independent republic after the 1917 revolution, then as a part of Russia, but was included in 1918 into Ukraine by the order of Lenin. Anyway, the hunger of 1930s involved not just Ukraine but also large regions of Russia and Kazakhstan. Nobody “genocided” the Ukrainians, and, either way, there would be no Russians available to take their place.

    The Ukrainian army is being overtaken by a psychological turning point
    Not only equipment is being defeated, but also the morale of the Ukrainian army
    on March 22, 2022, 08:20

    Text: Evgeny Krutikov

    [MORE]

    The number of prisoners of the Ukrainian military is already in the thousands, and in recent days, cases of surrender, desertion and refusal to carry out orders have become especially frequent. The morale of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in some sectors of the front is rapidly falling. Kiev is trying to compensate for this with the terror of the national security forces, unrestrained propaganda and the work of “svidomo” commissars in military units.

    Now the level of desertion and surrender is very high among those Ukrainian brigades that were the first to fall under the offensive of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the DPR and the LPR. Ahead of everyone is the 53rd Separate Motorised Rifle Brigade (ombr), whose denazification was officially announced in Donetsk. Having lost contact with the command after the retreat from Volnovakha, the brigade began to roll back to the steppe to the north, suffering heavy losses. As a result, the soldiers of the 53rd Brigade began to surrender in groups of 10 people, especially after the “svidomo commissars” and commanders died or escaped.

    The fact is that over the past year, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been ideologically reformatted, almost every platoon has been introduced on the basis of rotation, “ideological”, they are also “svidomo” officers or sergeants from among former National soldiers, natives of Western Ukraine, or just very ideologically motivated individuals. If earlier the composition of some brigades or battalions could be homogeneous in origin (from one region of Ukraine), now there are practically no such units left, and ideological training was especially monitored at the level of special orders of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    One of the soldiers of the 53rd brigade who surrendered, Aleksandr, explained his act as follows: “First came the summons for service (urgent service – Vzglyad note). I went to the urgent service, then they offered to transfer me to the 53rd brigade for a contract. They promised that I would sit at the PPD (permanent deployment point – Vzglyad note) in Severodonetsk, that is, at home, come just like to work… I took a course for young fighters, then they loaded me into the echelon and brought me here (to Novognatovka, where he surrendered along with the others – Vzglyad note)”. The natives of Severodonetsk had no desire to defend the ideals of Kiev and Svidomosti.

    The moral and psychological state is also at zero for those units that lose contact with the command and are cut off from supplies. One of the prisoners from the 58th ombr (Sumy) said that they had two tanks, one of which did not start, and the other did not shoot, but they were immediately hit and put out of action. Then they decided to give up.

    There were cases when soldiers from seemingly well-trained and ideologically prepared units surrendered after their imported weapons failed. In particular, NLAW grenade launchers massively misfired. After two such consecutive failures, for example, a platoon of marines on the outskirts of Mariupol surrendered.

    A separate category is professionals who surrender, realising that resistance is useless and it’s not worth it. Some officers who bring their platoons to Russian checkpoints explain their actions by unwillingness to harm civilians after receiving orders to take up positions in densely populated neighbourhoods.

    Such cases have become especially frequent in the suburbs of Kiev among the servicemen of the 14th ombr, which is, in fact, the garrison of the capital. In the Kiev region, in the settlement of Nikolaevka, the so-called buried, that is, the underground command post of the AFU, surrendered in full force. Of the 61 Ukrainian servicemen who surrendered, half were senior officers. This case is also indicative of the fact that senior officers who have repeatedly been re-certified for loyalty to Ukraine and the ideals of svidomosti surrendered. Earlier, a company of the 14th separate mechanised brigade led by a major surrendered in about the same area, having reached a Russian checkpoint.

    And the major of the 14th brigade Ivan Sobolev, who brought his platoon to the Russian checkpoint, motivated his behaviour, among other things, by unwillingness to sacrifice the lives of mobilised soldiers for the “fascist regime in Kiev.” The story of Snake Island, which has already been included in the anthology of President Zelensky’s failures, is also indicative.

    The number of surrendering prisoners increases as the Russian troops advance, but at the same time the “quality” of prisoners and deserters also changes. Among them, the number of those who refuse armed resistance is growing not for forced reasons (encirclement, losses, lack of communication, slovenliness, etc.), but for ideological reasons. More and more prisoners explain their behaviour by unwillingness to fight for Zelensky, hatred of the National Battalions and fascists.
    The fact is that a clash in everyday life with representatives of Western Ukrainian and neo-Nazi ideologies (sometimes it’s the same thing) sobers many. Many Ukrainians from the central regions and even the city of Kiev could face a familiar ideology only in the form of propaganda or in its light form, at a distance. Close contact with its bearers from among the National Battalions and Svidomo commissars leads to a rapid reassessment of values.

    The same, by the way, applies to civil officials in the liberated territories of both the DPR and the LPR, as well as in the Kherson, Zaporozhye, Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv and Kiev regions. Everyone quickly remembered the Russian language, cursing Bandera and Zelensky. The problem there is only the SBU agents.

    There are only isolated cases when local governors or mayors remained loyal to Kiev. In particular, the mayor of Melitopol Ivan Fedorov (born in 1988) shouted very loudly “glory to the heroes” and urged the residents of the city not to accept Russian humanitarian aid. For which he was exchanged for nine captured Russian servicemen, out of sight. Now the temporary administration of the Zaporozhye region is located in his office in Melitopol.

    And the victorious rhetoric of the governor of the Mykolaiv region, Alexander Kim, subsided greatly after the barracks and positions of the 79th separate airborne assault brigade were destroyed (the number of dead Ukrainian servicemen in the 79th is estimated in tens, if not hundreds). And then he almost took Moscow by himself.

    And an amazing phenomenon: it is only necessary to turn off Ukrainian television, as people massively come to their senses. And in the last few days, the flow of Ukrainian “peremozhnaya” propaganda has sharply increased, as if on command, which is especially evident in the example of Mariupol. Literally every hour, statements are pouring in that the city will never surrender, that it will be relieved any minute, reinforcements are coming from somewhere, “we are winning,” “the Russians have run out of “Kalibr,” and all the like. The quality of propaganda is appropriate, especially if you turn off the senses.

    There is evidence that in Kiev, at the level of Zelensky’s entourage, the task has been set for the remnants of the Mariupol garrison and, in general, the entire, as they say, “eastern”, and we say, the Donbass group, to hold out by any means until July.

    In Kiev, it is assumed that some kind of geopolitical shift should take place in the middle of summer. Either an atomic war will begin, or NATO will introduce troops, or aliens will arrive. But until that moment it is necessary to stand for a day and hold out for a night. The lack of technical ability to assist the encircled groups is compensated by the flow of propaganda stamps and patriotic slogans. On the ground, this is reinforced by the physical and ideological terror of the National Battalions and Svidomo.

    The trouble is that many parts of the AFU, especially in Mariupol, Severodonetsk and west of Donetsk, are deprived of communication with the normal outside world. It is not even known how far all these calls and slogans of Kiev reach them. The National Battalion forces, in turn, broadcast this propaganda to the civilian population, preventing people from leaving the city, which leads to additional destruction and losses. Even the very fact of the evacuation of children from Mariupol, organised by the DPR authorities, is presented as “Russians kidnap Ukrainian children and take them out of Ukraine to make them Muscovites.” And sitting in the basement, you won’t hear a lot of fresh news.

    At the same time, the locals who left Mariupol are very hostile not only against the National Battalions, but also against the Armed Forces of Ukraine. There is practically no differentiation between these two armed structures on the ground. Dislike is also caused by the mass death among those who signed up for the terbats (“Volkssturm”). Sometimes they have only “Molotov cocktails” for weapons, and there is smoke in their head.

    As the encirclement of large groups of the National Battalions and the AFU continues, the number of prisoners and deserters from the Ukrainian army will only grow. The order of the Minister of Defence of the Russian Federation Sergei Shoigu on respect for all captured Ukrainian servicemen is known and widely distributed. In the DPR and LPR, those Ukrainian captured servicemen who were mobilised or originally from the liberated regions have already begun to be released to their homes. In Kharkov and Sumy, they are paroled in return for non-participation in further hostilities.

    But the situation in those regions that are still exposed to the radiation of Kiev propaganda in its modern, perverted form is alarming. As experience shows, the moral and psychological state in such an environment does not change by itself, but under the influence of external factors.

    For example, the displacement or physical destruction of the National Battalions forces in itself will lead to sobering up. Otherwise, it is the neo-fascists and the Svidomo who quickly seize power in individual military groups (as in Mariupol) or intercept the propaganda initiative with the help of Western and surviving “Russian” liberal media, as in Kiev and Odessa.

    Zelinskyy is a perfect case in point. Playing piano with his penis and drag queen dancing in heels were only the public shows of humiliation required before he was put into power. My mind cringes at the thought of thinking about the kinds of perverse acts he has had to perform in order to collect his “reward” of becoming the savior of Ukraine.

    Sometimes people can become “proud” and try to break out of the spider web they are trapped in.

    For example, Obama the proud NEGRO became passive aggressive toward Netanyahoo. The proud negro did one thing right, and returned Iran’s money (similar to how Russian central bank reserves were stolen and will have to be returned in future.)

    Globo Homo finance capital is using/funding the Azov brigade as a battering ram. Buy up a country when blood is running in the streets! Of course there are finance oligarchs string pulling for their own selfish desires.

    Zelinsky may actually be channeling his grandfather, who fought in the “great patriotic war.”

    The Azov batallion has noticed Zelinsky’s Russian breeding.

    Note: This obsession with race was Hilter’s mistake too, as he thought the British were his blood brothers. The British, especially the finance class, were working in lockstep with our (((friends))) who were behind the scenes fomenting war.

    “People who communicate with the president do not belong to any of these categories, and therefore are in Zolote with weapons illegally , which is given a proper legal assessment.”

    Andrei Biletsky, the leader of Azov, gave his assessment of the dispute in Zolote (about returning AK-47’s).

    “What you gained with breeding is beneficial exclusively to Russia,” he said, referring to Mr. Zelensky.

    Zelensky is Russian in Biletsky’s worldview, a racial untermenschen.

    According to him, by his decision, the president is preparing to “surrender” a large section of the front with strategic positions and is not ready to answer the question of how to build defense in the event of “Russian aggression”.

    Mr. Biletsky threatened that if President Zelensky decides to “put the threats into practice,” then “instead of a few dozen people next week, there will be a thousand.”

    Here is a quote from the Guardian, an arm of globo-homo Atlantacism.

    Once the Nazi Azov Battalion forces called out President Zelensky’s “breeding” as being Russian, this report continues, even the British “newspaper of record” Guardian took fearful notice in their article “Azov Fighters Are Ukraine’s Greatest Weapon And May Be Its Greatest Threat”, wherein it warned: “There is an increasing worry that while the Azov and other volunteer battalions might be Ukraine’s most potent and reliable force on the battlefield against the separatists, they also pose the most serious threat to the Ukrainian government, and perhaps even the state”.

    Zelensky is being held in check by threats to his life, even though he has already submitted by degrading himself. The string pullers want properly compliant puppets.

    Atlantacists are right to be worried that their puppet may become proud and free, and give targeting information to the Russians, to then kill the Azov’s before they kill him (Zelensky).

    They’re reassuring the peasants as a way of self-soothing their own catastrophic anxiety.

    Why is the media trying to convince the Ukrainian people that they can prevail in their war against Russia?

    Are they trying to? The lies are so blatant it’s easy to argue they’re not intended to be taken seriously. Rather it’s about “not giving up” or not “demoralizing” their own side.

    Personally I find when my leaders have to lie so blatantly it’s even more demoralizing than a realistic adult take on the situation. “This is the best they can do? F&\$% me.” But hey, “you do you” as they say.

    Though it’s certainly possible that, like BLM, the point of the exercise is to get as many people killed as they can. No enemy is as dangerous as a stupid ally, but Progressives are so treacherous they manage to be worse than stupid.

Have you all forgotten that towards the end of last year Russia gave UN and NATO an ultimatum the response to which was kept kind of semi-secret but was unsatisfactory? So instead of complying with Russia’s ultimatum, US and NATO started preparing with Ukraine an attack on LDNR. Russia responded by attacking the Ukraine and NATO mercenaries, consultants and instructors involved in this aggression on Donbass. That’s what happened so far and Ukraine just got caught in the middle, and in what form it will continue to exist remains to be seen.

    I will have to disagree with you on many things. I am a big fan of Putin and Russia but he bungled up. Very intelligent person, but he made a mistake. The mistake was that he ended up believing in his own propaganda. There is nothing called a Nazi state in Ukraine, the history is more complicated. And second fake belief was that, Ukrainians as an ethnic group does not exist and that they are “Little Russia”. Sure Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians are very closely related people, but Ukraine as a distinct nation exists. A nation ready to fight for itself. The so called Nazis are just Ukrainian nationalists.
    It were these false beliefs is why the Russians expected a very easy walkover into Ukraine, that the Russian armed forces would drive into Kyiv, the Ukrainian “Nazi state” would collapse like pansies, the Ukrainian people would throw flowers at the Russian liberators like they did to the German Wehrmacht decades ago. The Russian soldiers would get out of their vehicles and buy cigarettes in some shop in Kyiv. That is why he sent a comparatively small force with old vehicles and the logistics was planned in that way. In Donetsk and Luhansk, sure it was a walkover, they really were liberators but in the rest of Ukraine, they faced a different reality. They faced a people ready to defend their nation against foreign aggressors.
    Sure, Russia may eventually win as they are a major military power of the World but they had planned for something else. That is why we had Russian paratroopers in the first hours of the invasion in the woods outside the Kyiv. The Kremlin was really expecting a walkover. Even a bunch of Chechens sent to Kiev later was neutralised.
    However I do not blame Russia and Putin for all this, I blame the USA for all this fiasco. It is the USA which has been taking an adversarial posturing against Russia for no reason. Constantly poking and getting at Russia from all directions.


    Brexit leader Farage blames NATO for ‘poking’ Russia

    There is no Great Game of Shadows in Afghanistan today, no Cold War, so why this Russophobia being pushed on the West by the Western elites? It does not make any sense. Or maybe it does. A “evul Russian” bogeyman is needed by the USA to stay and squat in Europe. Indeed it would have been best if NATO would have been disbanded and an European NATO be reconstructed in its place INCLUDING Russia. That would solve all geopolitical problems in Europe including East Europe, including Russia. This would allow Europe to truly rise as an alternative pole in the World independent of the USA, as the humongous ex-USSR military assets would become part of the European NATO.
    However Russia has the right to carve out a Donetsk Republic as well as a Luhansk republic from Ukraine. The West cannot say shit because they had themselves carved out Montenegro from Serbia. If the West can carve out or “liberate” Montenegro from Serbia, why can’t Russia liberate Luhansk and Donetsk from Ukraine as well as Abkhazia and South Ossetia from Georgia? Of course it can and it must. Because of the brutality committed by Ukrainians on the people in those two places (Donetsk and Luhansk) for the last 8 years, Putin’s anger is justified.
    The Russians have many disadvantages in Ukraine, even if they defeat the Ukrainian army. They can face a serious insurgency, Ukrainians fighting a foreign occupier. On the other hand, Russians will not be able to stomach massive bombardment of Ukrainian cities. Bombing the Chechens of Grozny is one thing, Russians will not be happy to bomb cities full of fellow Eastern Slavs. This will put a lot of strain on the Russians. Kiev/Kyiv is a big city having a population bigger than what is official. Maybe 5 million people. Can become very difficult for the Russian armed forces especially as the Russians are not gonna like bombarding the city they consider so important to their civilization.

    The Polish prime minister drove them. Crossing the Poland-Ukraine border the road splits with a road sign saying “Bear left” so the Polish PM thought they wouldn’t be in danger.

Guderian faked them out by driving east through the more rugged country of Belarus, like Napoleon had. This operational move wrong-footed the Red Army. Putin seems to be similarly keeping the NATO brain trust off balance. They anticipated an attempt as total conquest and annexation, when Russia’s goals seem to be exactly what they stated: destruction of Ukraine’s strategic weapons and emasculation of its hyper fascist praetorian guard. This was the only thing keeping the US puppet government in place. Without a pistol to the back of his head, Zelensky will probably be amenable to negotiation. He’s a TV actor, not a fanatic.

    Exactly what was prevented that would have otherwise occurred for sure? What you try to circumscribe is simply a “war of aggression“

    Be that as it may, Russia had at least as realistic a concern about a security threat from Ukraine than America had about Central America or Iraq. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. There is no substantive difference between what the US has repeatedly done and what Ukraine is doing. Deaths and the proportion and absolute numbers of non combatants dying are far less in the case of Ukraine so far that in either of the cases where America exercised its prerogative similarly. And it was America that Ukraine was de facto allying with. The Ukrainian President may have acted within international law at all times, but he has also been a bit of a bloody fool in not seeing the threat to his country was real until the last moment, but why would anyone have expected the leader of Russia to be remotely that silly?

    The original Russian word was hard to translate and I have never encountered it before – after a bit of research “slovenliness” was as close as I could get. Possibly disappointment with organisational failings is intended. And it is likely that ammunition resupply and food is not getting through, even in units not surrounded, and if this is what is meant by slovenliness then I could see it as leading to surrender.
    What POWs or deserters say needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. There was an earlier Vzglyad article about POWs being questioned that I did not translate but its overall tone was authentic-sounding, like one POW resisting appearing before a camera and saying in Ukrainian, “they’ll kill us” although it was unclear whether he meant the Russians, the Ukrainian security service or even both.

    This personality type is the original red-pill thrower. They think for themselves.

    From what I can tell it is Jews, Neo-Nazis and Russians who have been dominating the “Ukrainian” political space. The Jews and Neo-Nazis squeezed out the Russians by banning their political parties, media, language and now completely dominate the country. There could be some, or many, real Ukrainians out there, but I don’t see them as being of much relevance as things now stand, and they could well go the way of the Yugoslavs. Where are all those Yugoslavs now?

    Many keep saying that the Russians miscalculated the response of the Ukrainian people but I doubt it; they should be better informed than anyone else about the state of that nation.

    The Russians lose nothing by their action in the Ukraine but have everything to gain, especially seeing the hysterical response of the West. Even if they take only a small part of the Ukraine and no more that’s good enough as they’re making their pivot to the East so worsening of relations with the West is the best thing that could happen to them. They tried so hard for so long but now they know not to bother any more. The West has a lot more to lose by this distancing and Russia’s reorientation towards the East, and judging from the talk about Eurasia that has been going on there this has been long in the making. If the West doesn’t like Russia and doesn’t want fair relations with it good; let them build a new Iron Curtain and look after their own business however best they can while Russia does whatever elsewhere. And Russia is better prepared to wage a long economic war against them, as the West, especially the EU, slips into irrelevance on the global stage. Can’t say they didn’t have it coming to them.

    In their minds, we are righteous in our intervention/invasion of other countries – because our motivations are ‘true’. We must defend democracy, fight for the rights of women, and remove tyrants. Whether these countries pose any kind of security threat, does not factor into it. We are conditioned to believe our actions are noble and essential, despite history showing us the catastrophic consequences of our ‘meddling’, time and time again.

    I note that you could not even answer my basic question, exactly “what was prevented”

    An invasion of Ukraine certainly was not prevented, which might lead one to wonder whether the electorate of Ukraine have perhaps made serious mistakes in their choice of leadership.

    You mentioned some unspecified “security threat“, a very nebulous concept in itself, at best an artifact of imaginary and paranoid delusions, certainly not anything “realistic“, contrary to your claim.

    If that is true then ever single Russian that Western diplomats came into contact with for 30 years has been mentally ill. But let us assume this is so, if someone is both paranoid and very well armed, then it ill behooves the prudent to fuel his suspicions.

    Pretending that a fantasy is real remains a key function of propaganda, and those who repeat such nonsense are just “useful idiots“.

    The proven reality is that after behaving as it did behave, Ukraine got invaded. And it was hardly an unprecedented or surprise attack.

    I note that you could not even answer my basic question, exactly “what was prevented” by the aggressive Russian attack,

    Likely nothing, but if so that ought to have made Ukraine allaying Russian concerns by diplomacy and implementing the Misk agreements a simple matter. Instead they refused to enact the Minsk accords, got Partner Interoperability (integrated into Nato military structures without formal membership) droned up in Donbass, took delivery of a billion in advanced weapons and got a British ship to sail right up to Crimea. I will turn it around and ask, what did the Zelisnsky regieme do to prevent this massive invasion? They clearly counted on an all out attack with Kiev as an objective being too difficult for someone of Putin’s force of will to push through. They counted wrong.

    From what I can tell it is Jews, Neo-Nazis and Russians who have been dominating

    There are no Neo Nazis as such. For many Eastern Europeans, the Germans were seen as liberators from the more cruel Soviet rule. Even in Russia proper, ethnic Russians governed the semi-autonomous Lokot Autonomy in Nazi-occupied Russia. On 22 June 1943, a parade of the Wehrmacht and Russian forces was welcomed and positively received in Pskov. The entry of Germans into Pskov was labelled “Liberation day” and the Russian tricolor flag was included in the parade inspiring scenes of moving patriotism. Stephan Bandera joined the Germans in the beginning but later had a fall out with them. After WW2, the Ukrainian Nationalists fought the Soviet Union, it was a war of liberation, for their motherland. Some of them collaborated with the German National Socialists, not all, just some. But the Soviets branded everybody as Nazis, even those Ukrainian Nationalists who had nothing to do with the Germans. This false history played a part in President Putin’s miscalculation.
    BTW, the National Socialists were always far more popular among grass roots than Communists. If I am not mistaken, Lenin held an election and got some 17%, so he dumped the elections. The first time a Communist Party ever got elected by popular vote was in India, in Kerala state. The CPIM or the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and this was after WW2, after the PRC was formed.
    https://www.news9live.com/knowledge/which-was-the-first-elected-communist-government-in-the-world-all-you-need-to-know-125990
    Which was the first elected Communist government in the world? All you need to know
    “Kerala is also the state where the world’s first democratically elected communist government came to power. After the formation of the Kerala state in 1956, elections were announced in the state next year. The Communist Party of India emerged as the single largest party in the 1957 Kerala Assembly elections. The election was fought under the leadership of EMS Namboodiripad.”

    As far as the West and Russia, that is a different matter. The USA (and their idiotic supporters in the EU) is responsible for this whole fiasco, if they had not cornered Russia for such a long time, all this would not have been needed. And the mutton head leaders of Europe, if Russia could be integrated into an European defence system, Europe could have truly freed itself of the USA and truly become an independent pole in the World. The military of Western Europe combined with vast Soviet military assets. What an opportunity lost. Maybe the USA wants to prevent that at all costs, but they have help from stupid leaders in Western Europe. Will this cold war hurt Russia? Yes. Will it hurt the West? Yes. Could even lead to the destruction of the petro dollar, who knows. Putin might have bungled up, but he is extremely smart. He has ways to screw the West.

Russians should ask themselves why, if Hitler was such a monster, and Stalin and Putin are such saints, did Austrians, who are roughly the equivalent to Germans as Ukrainians are to Russians, do Ukrainians hate Russians so much? Perhaps it may have something to do with the defamation of Ukrainian Nationalists wanting to preserve their heritage by Russians smearing them with their never ending tirades about “Nazis” and the “glorious Red Army”. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Germany never attempted to commit genocide on Austria.

    But the point here is about Ukraine, outside Luhansk, Donetsk and Crimea, what percentage of Ukrainians support the Russians? That is the main question. Many Ukrainians are Russian speakers but they identify as Ukrainians. Just like many Irishmen speak English, but identify as Irish. If the UK were to invade the Republic of Ireland tomorrow, English speaking Irishmen would resist.

    Relations Between Russians & Ukrainians in the USSR During the 80’s #ussr #soviet
    The narrator’s name is Sergei Sputnikoff who was born in the USSR in 1971 and he is a Russian speaking Ukrainian who identifies as Ukrainian. He says there was a huge amount of Russification in Soviet Ukraine, Ukrainian language was seen as more rural and backward. But he had a lot of Russian friends and got along well with the Russians. However the Russians were not interested in learning Ukrainian and normally left the class during Ukrainian lessons. He himself is more comfortable speaking Russian then Ukrainian even though he is Ukrainian but in the USSR, he looked at himself as a Soviet person first.
    But this is the interesting, check out 13:38 minutes. His mom started talking about marriage and her Ukrainian nationalism came out. She said “Serioja (Sergei), you should look for Ukrainian girl. The Ukrainian girls they work harder, they cook better. They have the same mentality as you as you do. Russian girls, they tend to be lazy. they may be pretty but don’t like to cook and they are lazy. So if you are thinking about dating someone for marriage, you probably should consider Ukrainian girls”
    Which shows that a distinct ethnic group called Ukrainian exists and existed.
    West vs Russia, I am with Russia and Putin. But to deny the distinct ethnicity of an entire people, calling them “Little Russians” or something like that, sorry I cannot support that.

In my view, the American media is trying to give the impression that a valiantly combative Ukrainian force could win if only they received a nudge of western support. They’re trying to drum up reasons for NATO to give direct military support to Ukraine. The argument would be much less persuasive if the truth were presented that the Ukraine is vastly overwhelmed by Russian forces.

    Even in 2014, the Ukrainians pushed the Russian insurgents out of Slavyansk and Mariupol. Only the Russian army proper (NorthWind) and the ability to shelter in civilian areas as a fire base saved them.

  186. I think Putin’s “special military operation” is going swimmingly well. On day 1 the Ukraine Navy and Air Force was destroyed or neutralized. Weapon depots and training bases are being systematically eliminated including one base with \$400,000,000 million in US made weapons. Putin also drew red lines that NATO won’t cross, any weapon deliveries will be targeted and eliminated upon arrival to Ukraine border.

    I am sure the Russian high command is very pleased with the results so far, and DO NOT WANT and end to the war yet. They are in a mop up operation, and before Russia packs up and leaves Ukraine they want the western funded Nazis eliminated and weapon caches cleared so that Ukraine poses no threat to the motherland. Russia is methodically using missiles and air power to turn any threat into rubble and mincemeat.

    The intense western blitzkrieg against the Russian success is not just retarded propaganda for the masses to lap up, it is probably a set up for a false flag chemical attack. They are pushing this false narrative that Putin and Russia are losing so Putin/Russia will get desperate and use a weapon of mass destruction as a last ditch effort to success.

    It amazes me that so many people think Russia could lose this war, that is not even possible, and Russia is holding back on scorched earth as they want Ukraine intact when it is restore with a non-Washington puppet government. Zelensky is being green screened as the hero (he may not even be making the videos since any face can be electronically swapped over a pre-recorded video.

    I don’t think Russia should have anything to do with the West given the cultural and societal developments there which are detrimental to Russia, and now because of the sanctions it looks like they won’t be doing any, or much, business. The West is now seizing Russian assets and stealing properties of Russians just showing what thieves and pirates they are, and in turn Russia doesn’t have to pay for licences, patents or copyright so let’s see who ends up being better off.

    In fact if Zelensky hadn’t been invented by the West and their Zionist oligarch puppets then maybe Russia should have invented him as he’s doing a good job wrecking the country and giving an excuse to Russia to come in and garb as much as it can thus depriving the West of Ukraine’s agricultural and other resources which will only help in its economic war.

    Of course the best thing would be for China to get Taiwan back as soon as possible thus denying the West of the microchip industry and extending China’s power in the region but it’s not of much consequence as far as Russia is concerned. Russia has got a bright future shifting it’s dealings and trade to the East. The West has always meddled in the politics of other nations and this is becoming obvious to the rest of the world which should welcome doing business with China and Russia instead.

    This is not an invasion in their worldview, a view I happen to agree with. I can no more put a howitzer facing your house than you can mine. It is called indivisibility of security, and the WEST has agreed to this principle, yet is in abeyance of it.

    Here it is again, TROLL who cannot learn, and instead wants to divert people from reality:

    Did it occur to your low-empathy sociopathic brain, that others may have different worldviews than you. The takeoff point isn’t invasion vs no-invasion, there was plenty of lead-up to said invasion, and Russia broadcast their position LOUDLY and often over many YEARS.

    You couldn’t listen then, and you cannot listen now, which means there is something wrong with your brain function, or you are a troll.

    Orthodoxy’s distinctive stance on peace, war and violence does not view war as unambiguously good or holy. Orthodoxy has neither a crusade ethic nor an explicit just war theory. Instead, the church tolerates war as an inevitable, tragic necessity for the protection of the innocent and the vindication of justice. The canons of the church suggest a period of repentance for those who have killed in war, which indicates both that taking life is spiritually damaging and that bloodshed falls short of Christ’s normative way of non-resistant, non-violent love. Peacemaking is the common vocation of all Christians, but the pursuit of peace in a corrupt world at times inevitably requires the use of force. In such circumstances, the church provides spiritual therapy for healing from the damaging effects of taking life. In every Divine Liturgy, the church prays for the peace of the world and all its inhabitants, and participates in the heavenly banquet of the kingdom to which all – soldier and pacifist alike – are invited.

    The Orthodox perceptive on sin and repentance is important.

    Orthodox Christianity is not concerned fundamentally with morality as an end in itself. The vocation of humanity is for deification, participation in the eternal life of the Holy Trinity. . . . In this light, it is not hard to see why warfare, and any taking of human life, is fraught with spiritual peril.

    Get it. They don’t give two shits about YOUR MORAL position.

    This is the cathedral for the military, where they can absolve themselves of sin, as they fall short of Christ’s teachings, because they were forced to engage in Just War (or the Orthodox understanding of it). The invasion of Syria was along the same lines of logic, as it is proper to view Russia as having elements of a theocracy.

    Russians want it both ways. They want all the glory for “liberating” Europe, but they don’t want any scorn for all the decades of war crimes they committed for their Khazarian overlords. Of course Americans are no better, nor are Brits, and nor are Ukrainians, nor are Canadians, nor are….

    “Contemporary” Russians need to realize that there are many, many very good reasons (holodomor) why Eastern Europeans despise them and their beloved Red Russian Rapist Army. Just look what the Russians did to Poland at Katyn Forest in 1941 for Christ’s sake.

    That being said, I do believe that Putin and Russia are the last vanguards standing against the the Khazarian Mafia. Unfortunately Russians have been so genetically degraded that the cannot realize that it was the Third Reich who played the precise same role in 1940-45. Russians are so morally degraded that they cannot accept that they committed massive crimes against humanity on behalf of the Khazarian name stealers.

    So while I do hope that Russians overcome the Khazarians in this last battle that Albert Pike foretold in his letter to Guiseppe Mazzini in 1872, I have great apprehension that as long as they deny the crimes of their forefathers that their misguided rule will in the end be little better than that of the Khazarians.

    What China could do now to kick CIA when they’re down is a quarantine of foreign offensive weapons around Taiwan.

The justification is WMD proliferation in Ukraine and the rebuttable presumption that CIA is doing the same thing to their primary enemy, China, in Taiwan.

    Taiwan’s threat to blow up the fabs would not come into play without an incursion. China could squeeze the fabs by scaling up cargo ship inspection. The US would not dare challenge interdiction of their ships, knowing they would be instant reefs at a time of heightened Russian strategic alert.

    Those were/are ethnic Russians in Crimea and Donbas. Austria has a different dialect and a completely different history from Germany. Austria was/is also Catholic whereas Northern Germany is Protestant. Through the 19th century up to WWI, there was a struggle between Austria and Prussia as to which country would lead “greater Germany”.

    The main reason why those “Nazi” nationalists in Galicia despise Russians is because of what Russians did to Ukraine. There is no comparison with how Germany treated Austria, Silesia, Alsace, Sudetenland or West Prussia.

    Russians proudly murdered and oppressed their “brother” slavs for decades on behalf of their Khazarian overlords. Now those Russian chickens are coming home to roost. About the only Slavs that are willing to stand with Russia at this point are the Serbs. There is no comparison between Russia and greater Germany, just as Stalin was a barbaric mass murdering cretin compared to Hitler. Russia and Stalin projected all their own sins onto Germany after the war. Until Russians can reestablish contact with historical reality all of Eastern Europe is totally justified in scorning Russia and Russians.

    The big problem here is that Russia has the natural resources and food production that small, overpopulated Germany could only dream about. Whereas Germany could only starve under the allied embargo, Russia has the natural resources to survive, and therefore is European civilizations last hope, especially after Russia destroyed Germany and turned it into a judaic cesspool.

    “The intensity of the impression of the Culture on individuals is proportional to their receptivity to spiritual impressions. The individual of small soul and limited horizon lives for himself because he understands nothing else. To such a man Western music is merely an alternate up and down, loud and soft, philosophy is mere words, history is a collection of fairy-tales, even the reality of which is not inwardly felt, politics is the selfishness of the great, military conscription a burden which his lack of moral courage forces him to accept. Thus even his individualism is a mere denial of anything higher, and not an affirming of his own soul.

    The extraordinary man is the one who puts something else before his own life and security. The common man is unjust, but not on principle; he is selfish, but is incapable of the imperative of Ibsen’s exalted selfishness; he is the slave of his passions. He lacks any sort of honor, and will submit to any humiliation rather than revolt — it is always leader-natures who revolt. He gambles in the hope of winning, and if he loses, he whimpers. He would rather live on his knees than die on his feet. He accepts the loudest voice as the true one. He follows the leader of the moment — but only so far, and when the leader is eclipsed by a new one, he points out his record of opposition.

    In victory he is a bully, in defeat he is a lackey. His talk is big, his deeds small. He likes to play, but has no sportsmanship. Great thoughts and plans he castigates as “megalomania.” Anyone who tries to pull him up and along the road of higher accomplishment he hates, and when the chance offers, he crucifies him, like Christ, burns him, like Savonarola, kicks his dead body in the square in Milan. He is always laughing at the discomfiture of another, but he has no sense of humor, and is equally incapable of true seriousness. He denounces the crime of passion, but eagerly reads the literature of such crimes. He herds in the street to see an accident, and enjoys seeing another sustain the blows of fate. He does not care if his countrymen are spilling their blood as long as he is secure. He is everything mean and unheroic, but he lacks the mentality to be Iago or Richard III. He has no access to Culture, and, when he dares, he persecutes anyone who has. Nothing delights him more than to see a great leader fall. He hated Metternich and Wellington, the symbols of Tradition, he refused, as Reichstag, to send ex-Chancellor Bismarck a birthday greeting. He makes up the constituency of all parliaments everywhere, and he invades all councils-of-war to advise prudence and caution. If beliefs to which he was committed become dangerous, he recants — they were never his anyway. He is the inner weakness of every organism, the enemy of all greatness, the material of treason. “

    Russia is in a JUST WAR SCENARIO.
    …others may have different worldviews than you.

    You have unfairly conflated the issue. The quotes you cited even confirms that “Orthodoxy has neither a crusade ethic nor an explicit just war theory. ” According to the quotes, “the church tolerates war as an inevitable, tragic necessity for the protection of the innocent and the vindication of justice.” It was never explained which innocent needed protection and how killing civilians in the large cities of Ukraine is supposed to achieve this. Achieving justice was also very unclear; it is just a catch-all phrase.

    Your “just war scenario” is in your head and not even shared by the other Orthodox denominations, nor has anyone else on this forum persistently made this assertion. As I have pointed out, there is no unanimity within the Orthodox movement, and you have not been able to show that the current conflict meets the theocratic “just war” stipulations, which have no bearing on civilized international relations anyway.

    Citing your objections to gay parades is not sufficient, especially because these parades occur in many countries, but not even in the port city of Mariupol, which is enduring constant bombardment. Your world view is not even shared by many Russians, or else there would be no reason for Putin’s harsh crackdown recently, to impose a totalitarian perspective that strictly forbids any public expressions of dissent.

    Moreover, since so many other commentators who have expressed enthusiasm for this Russian war here have not adopted your peculiar interpretation, the point I had raised in my comments more than two weeks ago, pertaining to conspicuous contradictions, remain valid.

    Take Mr. Ze. He is a Nazi collaborator, who has been using the Nazi Azov Battalion for his own protection. Mr. Ze, by refusing to sign the Minsk agreements, made Ukrainians into cannon fodder for Ukrainian Nazis and foreign mercenaries. Mr. Ze was elected on his promise to implement the Minsk agreements and to improve relationships with Russia; once elected, the obscenities-loving comedian broke all his promises.

    As for Mrs. Nuland-Kagan, she ran a regime-change that led to the Nazification of Ukraine – she has opened Ukraine for the spread of Nazism on Ukranian territory, where, by the way, the Babyi Yar’s mass graves are located. The American Jewish community is dead silent about the Kagans’ clan perfidy, yet the Jews on MSM can not stop slandering Russia and Russians — all while Russians have been doing the dangerous job of de-Nazification of Ukraine.

    Ukrainians en masse want peace, whcih means that as soon as the US/NATO-supported neo-Nazi murderers are rooted out, the civilian populations of Ukraine will be happy to find a normal life – without the enterprising ziocons, voracious Bidens, stupid mercenaries, and the rabid Semite-led Banderites who sold Ukraine and Ukrainians to zionists.

    After nearly a month Vladimir Putin’s assault is inexplicable.

    It is not inexplicable. Anybody who has eyes that are open knows the explanation.

    THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF WARS. THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF WARS. THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF WARS.

    I said it three times, because you are a knuckle head intent on spreading disinfo, and most of the commentariat are onto you.

    1) Invasion
    2) Defensive
    3) Just

    Invasions are usually wars of aggression, with the intent to take the other countries resources.
    Defensive wars are those who are defending themselves against aggressors.

    JUST WARS CAN BE BOTH OFFENSIVE OR DEFENSIVE.

    When a just war is OFFENSIVE it looks like an invasion to nuckle-head disinformation agents like you or the Jew York Times.

    I defined how the Orthodox view Just war, and you behaved as expected, by waving your pilpul hands and dismissing it. Your fallback position is that Russia = Invasion = War of Aggression to take Ukraine’s land, resources or whatever.

    This is an OFFENSIVE JUST WAR. Countries like people have the right to defend themselves. The Howitzer analogy is apt. If I put a Howitzer in my driveway and point it at your house, you would rightly be concerned.

    If I threatened you with it, you would be justified to take action to defend yourself.

    You will be dishonest and not look into the wars of aggression and invasion that the West waged against all the countries shown in the cartoon.

    Instead you will build up all kinds of weird pretexts about how Russia is not operating using Just War Doctrine, because such a thing does not exist.

    The Russians are careful to call it “Special Operations” rather than Just War, because low IQ normies cannot understand the distinction.

    The Special Operations are something like a police action, to then remove the Howitzer pointed at Russia’s head.

    Security is INDIVISIBLE.

    This concept is at the heart of Russia’s security demands, which of course you will not be able to understand, because you don’t want to.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/feb/03/why-does-russia-focus-on-indivisible-security-in-ukraine-standoff

    Has the west bought into this concept?
    Russia says yes. It relies mostly on two Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) documents to promote its version of indivisible security: the European Security Charter, signed in Istanbul in November 1999, and the Astana Declaration of December 2010. The US is a signatory to both documents. The Istanbul charter says countries should be free to choose their own security arrangements and alliances, but adds the rider that they “will not strengthen their security at the expense of the security of other states”.

    You won’t pull on the thread of OSCE and Istanbul Charter, instead you will act like the Jew York Times, and feign ignorance.

    But, what is great about disinfo agents, especially those who are low IQ, is that they don’t flee when found out.

    They then make great grist for the mill. Others get to see you floundering and being a fool. Others will understand that there are three kinds of war, and then things will begin to make sense to them.

    This is an OFFENSIVE JUST WAR. Countries like people have the right to defend themselves.

    You are incapable of defending this position because, by your own attempted elucidation, it essentially reduces to a mirage, touted under the fancy euphemism “indivisible security“. I have yet to hear or read an objective explanation of how Russia’s security is threatened, just a bunch of paranoid fantasies. Falsely invoking this principle, when the facts show that Russia poses a threat to its neighbors, is deceptive. This deception is transparent to most, though not to deluded cultists.

    Since Russia, which has been upgrading its military, threatens much of Europe with its nuclear missiles, NATO is entitled to have a presence in eastern European countries. Four years ago Putin publicly announced that he wanted to re-establish the USSR if he could; last year he expressed imperial ambitions, so Ukraine had a right to seek closer relations with NATO. These countries have been following the basic principle of their own perceived security needs.

    It is funny that amid your obnoxious tantrum you have also been conspicuously unable to explain what threats, coming from Ukraine, Russia purportedly needed to defend itself against. You conveniently declared it so, ex nihilo, and came up with a corny analogy of a howitzer in the driveway pointed at a house. It is actually all just a figment of your imagination. You also did not quote the final sentence in the Guardian article you referred to, which puts the concept they wrote about into context:

    Moreover, perceptions of security and threat are highly subjective, with one person’s security being another’s insecurity.

    True. It feels almost surreal to watch Zelensky try to trick the goyim with every single utterance, gesture, and even that stupid beard.. As an actor, politician and a jew, he’s probably physically incapable of forming sentences that can be true – even theoretically. He also seems to be missing parts of the human brain that evaluate possible consequences for excessive lying or what’s excessive to begin with.

    So I’m not talking about the usual boasting about battlefield successes – I’m talking about his repeated attempts to stampede other countries into starting WW3 with beyond-transparent psychological manipulation or easily disprovable lies. One of those was when Russians had supposedly cracked open a nuclear reactor and a radiation cloud was forming to swallow Europe – unless everyone attacks Russia without hesitation (or verification, of course).

    Zelensky is probably low IQ. That particular attempt to play the goyim managed to insult everyone’s intelligence. Actually worse – people get annoyed when someone tries to trick them with stupid lies but they get outraged if the trick is to get them to die for the stupid liar.

    Ritters’ presentation suggests an outcome that Ritter did not consider: what happens to Europea after Ukraine affair won by Russia? I propose that the Russian Federation ends up dominating Europe. The US is ejected from Europe, and concentrates on Oceanic power, the non-Asian continents, and continues its work in extraterrestrial engineering, expanding into the only area available that it not already claimed and settled.

    Why Russian Federation over Europe?

    * European society depends on raw materials, hitherto Russian raw materials.
    * European society has, for better or worse, been broken to such an extent that it requires domination by some external country. Russia would do a better job than the US, judging from the relative condition of Eastern and Western Europe.
    * Russia has some experience with the ethnic groups recently imported into Europe.
    * Russian security requires a stable Western Europe.

    Scenario: Western Europe, esp. German industry, needs Russian resources. It offers Russia better prices than can China, due to the expense of overland transport. Russia accepts, on condition that it be the superior political power. Europe, Stockholm syndrome basket case that it is, accepts. We get Eurasia, the UKUS becomes Oceania, and China becomes EastAsia. India perhaps becomes SouthCentralAsia, or perhaps sinks into obscurity as EastAsia diverts the waters of its major rivers (which sounds insane, but the construction of the necessary dams and waterways is underway).

    US withdraws to novel uses of resources in places that are not both claimed and heavily defended, which is what the US has done historically.

    My father was a survivor of Cholm. I have his Cholm Shield (1942) on display at home. He was not a German. He told me that the major problem they had with the aerial supply was that they missed the target quite a lot. The target area was small and the supplies were dropped in elongated canisters by parachute and as such could be blown off target by wind. He commented that they ended up feeding a lot of Russians.

    Yes, the propaganda value was high when the town was relieved and may have contributed to Hitler’s fantastical take on the burdens that the German serviceman could endure, but according to my understanding it was that degenerate ‘fat boy’ Goering, who was in need of an opportunity to re-enhance his standing with the Fuhrer that made a comment along the lines of guaranteeing on his word that supplying Stalingrad was not a problem that led to the disaster.

    A historian could make the case that Hitler was ultimately undone by two fat boys. Mussolini and Goering.

    Indivisible security is the cornerstone principle that Russia is placing into the public consciousness.

    No amount of your PilPul will be able to reduce it to a mirage, as if it doesn’t exist. That is you as a propagandist trying to redefine something. There are dozens, maybe hundreds of examples of aggression by the West that Russia has loudly complained about.

    Here it is again, and the West is a signatory to this concept. The West is has abrogated their own history of jurisprudence. There is no fair dealing, only an empire of lies.

    It relies mostly on two Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) documents to promote its version of indivisible security: the European Security Charter, signed in Istanbul in November 1999, and the Astana Declaration of December 2010. The US is a signatory to both documents. The Istanbul charter says countries should be free to choose their own security arrangements and alliances, but adds the rider that they “will not strengthen their security at the expense of the security of other states”.

    Will NOT STRENGTHEN THEIR SECURITY AT THE EXPENSE OF SECURITY OF OTHER STATES.

    Approximately \$225 million per day (or \$13.7 billion over a span of 61 days) had been waged in bets that Russia might default on its sovereign debt. These bets are known as Credit Default Swaps and can be used to hedge exposure or simply speculate on a debt default in hopes of making a profit.

    This information resides in a publicly-available swap repository maintained by the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC).

    The trading activity for the period of September 20 to December 19, 2021 was 4.5 times the daily notional volume of \$50 million in Credit Default Swaps executed on the Russian Federation’s sovereign debt for the equivalent period in 2020 according to the DTCC database.

    https://failedevolution.blogspot.com/2022/03/confirmed-nazis-are-proxy-army-of-us.html

    In March 2015, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov announced that the Azov Regiment would be among the first units to be trained by United States Army troops in their Operation Fearless Guardian training mission. US training however was withdrawn on 12 June 2015, as the US House of Representatives passed an amendment blocking any aid (including arms and training) to the battalion due to its neo-Nazi background. However, the amendment was later removed in November 2015, with The Nation reporting that the “House Defense Appropriations Committee came under pressure from the Pentagon to remove the Conyers-Yoho amendment from the text of the bill.”

    Azov published a media release on its website on 20 November 2017 stating that it had met with a foreign delegation of officers from the United States Armed Forces and Canadian Armed Forces on 16 November. … members of Azov have been pictured meeting with U.S. military and NATO officials.

    The ‘flexible-spine’ American brass seems to be accustomed to desecrating the memory of the fallen in WWII. Time to decorate the Pentagon with swastikas.

    Neither the ADL nor the Simon Wiesenthal Center supported the Conyers-Yoho amendment against arming Nazis in Ukraine. These two Jewish organizations have become the staunchest supporters of the self-proclaimed Nazi Azov Battalion. These Jewish organizations have never condemned Nuland-Kagan for her leading role in the Nazification of Ukraine.

    The Simon Wiesenthal Center is one of the largest international Jewish human rights organizations with over 400,000 member families in the United States. It is an NGO at international agencies including the United Nations, UNESCO, the OSCE, the OAS, the Council of Europe and the Latin American Parliament (Parlatino).

    So much for the Babyj Yar and 30.000 buried Jews there.

Russia has its own immigration problem from Central Asia, however the Russians do not let foreign immigrants become dominant to the extent Western Governments do, the Russians know how to show that the natives are always gonna be boss. This actually makes the immigrants respect native Whites more unlike in the West. And the relations in between Central Asians and Russians tend to be better than say Algerians, Pakistanis, Jamaicans etc…in Western Europe, because of shared Soviet history. However we have seen Poland, Hungary etc… object successfully to EU Kalergi Plan diktats. After WW2, Warsaw Pact countries became more nationalistic and conservative (while being Communist party led) while the West went in the opposite direction. We are seeing the effects of that even now. The Communists in Russia today are more conservative than the Conservative party in the UK, Christian Democrats in Germany or the Republicans in the USA!!!

    No doubt, Russian actions are because of grand Strategic insecurities of Russia and this was the result of actions of the West, especially USA. The USA has caused a lot of problems in the World, at times forced nations to behave in a particular way for their own security and then blamed the same nations of being aggressive. Putin wants Ukraine for strategic reasons, but the Russians were driven towards this, because of the irrational hostility shown towards them by the West.

    The argument can be made that American military culture tends towards this sort of stone age “kill ’em all/unconditional surrender” mentality precisely because of the extended period of time that the Americans spent fighting stone age peoples across the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.

    Guess who uses that kind of language in India? Hindutvas. If you do not support them and speak in defence of Muslims, they charge you being “whores of the foreign Muslim invaders, your mother was a whore to these Muslims.” So I guess we can keep quite and let Muslim genocide continue in India, in the future. many Hindus oppose the fundamentalists, but using similar tactics like what you are using, they could be shut down.
    Or if you support China in India, Indian Nationalists will charge you for being a “dirty traitor to your motherland, you want to be a Chinese man’s used condom. ”

    Be mindful that Aas he rose in the ranks of the KGB, aka Russian Deep State, it had forged ties with numerous Marxist-leaning terror groups, most notably with the PFLP. Top-secret documents retrieved by a researcher in the early 1990’s from the archives of the Soviet Politburo illustrate the depth of some of these connections. In Dresden, Putin offered refuge and false identities to the Red Army Faction members, as well as procured weapons for them.

(And the Sabbatean Jews believe that when the entire globe is totally immoral and degenerate, their Moshiac will arrive…. hence their constant degradation of European/Christian culture, and even China sees it coming now. ) It’s mindblowing that our hope appears to rest with the Russian Orthodox Christians and the Traditional Chinese Culture.

    Most people don’t have a clue how insane the ((Jews)) truly are. They think it’s all an act or a bluff. They couldn’t be more wrong.

    I think the Russians and Chinese had committed to the Great Reset scam back when they believed the ((Jews)) were bluffing, and the global elites were all engaged in collective theatre.

    The Anglosphere elites in particular have gone along with the ((Jews)) with a wink and nod for the entire 20th Century, and now into the 21st. The Russians and Chinese followed the lead. I think they all believed it was a game that benefitted their class. They didn’t realize how seriously the ((Jews)) take their dark religion. So they ceded more and more power to the them, until they ended up with the totally ((Jewish)) Biden admin pulling the strings of the Globe.

    Now, finally, they’ve realized how insane the ((Jews)) truly are, and are starting to take the necessary steps to detach themselves. It may be too late.

    Russians should ask themselves why, if Hitler was such a monster, and Stalin and Putin are such saints, did Austrians, who are roughly the equivalent to Germans as Ukrainians are to Russians, do Ukrainians hate Russians so much?

    What makes you think that Ukrainians hate the Russians that much? Contrary to the assumption in your question, the last time the whole of Ukraine voted, they elected a pro-Russian president.

    What I have seen though is that Russians kind of despise Ukrainians, in general. My Russian friends make fun of the Ukrainian language and when they speak of them is like whey they speak of Jews, with much care and civility but making evident that they think not so good of the whole lot.

    Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Russian “soldiers” gang raped every woman between 8 and 80 years of age all across Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Czechia and also Eastern Germany.

    My readings of the fall of Nazi Germany at the hands of the Soviets indicate that the Soviets started to rape in full force once they were in Germany. Sure they raped in Eastern Europe as well but I have the impression that the raping became industrial scale in Germany.

    I’ve offered a different, simpler explanation: immediate gratification.

    The thought that Russia is losing or having problems with the invasion and that Ukrainian forces have a chance provides immediate gratification to normie readers of the western media and the media is in the business of providing immediate gratification to prop up ad sells.

    Imagine the NYT starts to report the hard truth about the war while the WP provides immediate gratification with tendentious or straighforward fabricated lies that make the propagandized public happier. Where do you think normie readers would go?

    As part of the general downward trend in culture in the West, the public prefers to feel good right now, this instant, rather than recognize the truth and then plan accordingly after some hard work. The media helped create this downward trend and now it reacts accordingly further re-inforcing the downward trend.

    Which leads one to wonder why there is not more dissent in Ukraine itself. It could be that every Ukrainian there agrees with the Ukrainian regime. Or could it be that everyone there who voices opposition to it is brutally stamped out by fascist thugs in the employ of the government?

    The answer is Yes to the latter question, in my opinion.

    The Zelensky govt was very similar to those Latin American military dictatorship of the past century. A good comparison can be made with Chile.

    The military dictatorship had a lot of help from the USA to promote its policies and thus it was absolutely convinced that a majority of Chileans supported the dictatorship. In fact their policies were widely rejected but the regime remained in place thanks to fascists thugs keeping the population scared. But since the govt mistakenly thought that they had a majoritarian support they called for a referendum to prolong the dictatorship. Contrary to their expectations, they lost. Then Chileans became formally democratic again electing politicians that betted against the dictatorship.

    I think the current situation in the Ukraine with the mood of the general public is similar to the situation with the general public in Chile at the fall of their military dictatorship: in general they oppose the regime but they are primarily scared of fascist thugs and secondarily heavily propagandized.

    Here is Lavrov on why Russia feels threatened.

    Lavrov has little credibility nowadays after having reassured the public that Russia had no plans to invade Ukraine – only a few days before it then initiated its big war of aggression. If Russia had been serious about its stated “security” concerns then it would have attended the Munich Security Conference last month, to which its representatives had been invited. Lavrov did not attend the event because at that time Russia had already committed to carrying out its invasion, and the “indivisible security” was merely a ruse. Your blanket appeal to Lavrov amounts to trusting what the professional liar says, so it was with critical skepticism that I read through his speech and most of his answers to specific questions.

    Essentially, Lavrov is now blaming Zbigniew Brzezinski rather than Boris Yeltsin for having provoked NATO expansion around the turn of the millennium. During that time NATO had expressed conciliatory tones toward Russia, but Yeltsin abused this by having failed to withdraw from the Königsberg / Kaliningrad region, thereby projecting a threat to the newly independent Baltic countries, which they felt compelled to defend against. Of course Lavrov is unwilling to acknowledge any of this publicly, which I did not expect anyway. He failed to mention Baker or Gorbachev during the 1990 talks about Germany, so maybe propagandists will finally drop the ridiculous “not-one-inch-east” canard. In the entire presentation I noticed only one passage explicitly pertaining to an alleged threat toward Russia by Ukraine:

    …growing threats to the Russian Federation from the militarisation and Nazification of Ukraine.

    So there we have it; everything reduces down to that – superficial hyperbole and paranoia at its best. He comes across like a Jew playing the inflated Nazi-card; it is hard not to chuckle. No mention of a theological “just war” construct, or gay parades, your pet theme, previously expressed by the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church. There was only one reference to the topic of missile deployment, which he acknowledged the US said they were willing to negotiate. When one understands Russia’s long-term imperial power ambitions, it becomes clear that any corresponding territorial conquests in the future would be greatly facilitated by denying its neighboring countries a strong military defense. Russia enjoys little trust for countries to fall for this coercive trick.


    Others will click on the Lavrov Link and come to understandings that you do not want promulgated…

    Actually, I was pleased that Lavrov soundly dispelled the silly “Nuland-staged-a-coup” myth that still gets repeated often here, even though I had thoroughly deconstructed it. Here is the relevant passage, which I am promulgating:

    They say this happened because Yanukovich left Kiev. Yes he did, but he left for Kharkov to take part in his party’s congress. Yes, he faced a number of issues and did not enjoy broad support, but he never fled. Still, this is not about Yanukovich.

    If Yanukovich did not enjoy broad support, as was obviously the case, it is difficult to imagine that it would have required a US coup to oust him, purportedly against the will of the people, when an overwhelming majority vote in the parliament was sufficient to formally remove him from office, as occurred. Of course even this basic admission did not come unadulterated. If he “never fled“, as Lavrov claimed, then why did he appear in Russia shortly after having briefly been seen in Kharkov? This is because “he faced a number of issues“, including his involvement in a massacre of street demonstrators just a few days before, leading to criminal charges against him.

    In my opinion the strongest complaint that Lavrov has against Ukraine is its having downgraded the role of the Russian language in its territory, to the benefit of the Ukrainian language, yet this linguistic issue is an internal matter and barely unique in the world. It is certainly not a conceivable security threat to Russia and cannot possibly justify a war of aggression, which is likely the reason why this issue has never figured prominently in Russia’s war propaganda.

    One can objectively conclude, that after numerous failed attempts, you have been unable to support your extremist claims. Upon examination, the evidence you cited has actually only weakened your position.

    …Russia has established a de facto No Fly Zone over Ukraine.

    Then why do I hear jets flying here in Galicia every single day? All I wanted to say is that Nikolajew is still Ukrainian after a month of fighting. That’s clearly the most vulnerable part of the front, and yet the Russians failed to puncture a breakthrough and “enter strategic space”, as it is said. How anyone can still take the Russians seriously is beyond me.

    The Russians are consolidating their control of Mariupol and have secured all approaches on the Black Sea. Ukraine is now cut off in the South and the North.

    Odessa, Akkerman and Nikolajew are still under Ukrainian control, so that is a clear lie. (Unless you meant the supremacy of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, but then, the entrance to the Sea itself is controlled by Turkey.)

    Overall, this article has garnered 311 comments so far, and Mariupol has been mentioned 11 times (a useless town deep behind Russian lines), whereas Nikolaev has not been mentioned at all. Now that’s a zombie-like behaviour, indistinguishable from the Ukrainian NPC raguls.

    Crimea was a completely different situation. Putin doesn’t even want Donbass. They asked him to take them over when Russia took Crimea but he said no. That’s where the fighting was for the last 8 years. He said the goal is to dismantle all of Ukraine’s military force. You couldn’t dismantle it without a fight. NATO had been arming and training them. The goal is to make Ukraine a complete buffer zone. Crimea to be recognized as Russia and Donbass to be given independence. Donbass people don’t seem to hate Russia at all. This is but one of several westerners who are on the ground at their own risk seeking the truth. Those who hated Russia already hated Russia (which is part of the fight) but many in the East – while not like war – understand – and dislike the Ukraine nationalists even more. Prior to say 2014 I knew nothing and only got interested because of the coup . I thing about any of these issues. But I know 2 Russians and asked them questions.

Ukrainian drones are still operating with near impunity.

    Russian forces to the NW of Kyiv are being pushed back and the entire western flank is under pressure. They still haven’t taken Mariupol, and a Marine Brigade Commander has now been killed. The Ukrainians are getting quite good at finding and killing senior officers along with destroying supply trains.

    Be sure to tell the conscripts getting killed how all that is left is mopping up. I’m sure it will comfort it their mothers as well.

    In order to redefine, then it is important that the propagandist appear as if impartial and objective. The objectivity requires propagandist to appear as if reasonable, ergo a reasonable tone must be maintained at all times. Real people do not have a flat inflection tone, they react to provocation.

    Below is a good example of propaganda technique:

    One can objectively conclude, that after numerous failed attempts, you have been unable to support your extremist claims. Upon examination, the evidence you cited has actually only weakened your position.

    Only you are objective, and everything is reduced to failed attempts, and the claims are the ravings of an extremist. Your examination is the only one that is important… because, oh – because of your reasonableness, and superior ability (I guess). The evidence I sited (FREEZE THE PERSON, PERSONALIZE IT), has only weakened my position.

    My position is identical to Russia, China, India, Brazil, and most of the non-aligned countries.

    If your boss reads this comment to you, he may want to fire you, because now you are being “examined.” YOU have become grist for the mill.

    THE EMPIRE OF LIES, requires that liars are sent out into the wilds to then maintain the lies.

    It is not enough that the MSM is owned by about six (((oligarchs))), to then control narrative, the few websites allowing open debate are under propaganda attack.

    I have redefined (((creditor class))) as it is no longer specifically Jewish. Your owners and paymasters are calling the shots, as they are string pulling the entire western world.

    Only the string pulling and narrative control is no longer working. There are too many countries now willing to break away from the empire of lies.

    Russian Colonel General On Ukraine: Without Hysterics And Insults

    Vladimir Valentinovich Chirkin is a Russian military commander and Colonel General. Former Commander-in-Chief of the Ground Forces

    Translated by AlexD exclusively for SouthFront

    Vladimir Chirkin, March 08, 2022

    Let’s try to understand the situation without hysterics and insults.

    It’s hard for everyone. Our guys and dying. Citizens of the Ukraine are dying. But the hardest thing is for the military, both active and reserve, Russian and Ukrainian, who have been through “hot” conflicts”. I grit my teeth with helplessness, I’m not personally sure if I could have carried out the Commander-in-Chief’s order if I had been in the ranks today. To keep civilian casualties to a minimum is understandable, we are one people. I have little idea how to try to not cause critical damage to the Ukrainian army within the tactics of my own unit.

    I categorically object to the release of the number of combat casualties before the operation has ended its final phase. This is a gift for someone else’s information war, a trump card in the hands of the enemy, dispelling false information among outspoken alarmists inside the country: “they are lying, hiding, under-reporting everything”, “no war”, “mother, don’t let your sons so”, “how I want peace”, “how much blood can be shed”…

    You can and should. Soldiers die, heroes. They didn’t come to the army to polish paving stones with their boots. They came to defend their country. Even at the cost of their own lives. It was a mistake of the General Staff, the people should clearly understand the purpose of the operation, its necessity, the inevitability of victims. But not the current price.

    It sounds harsh, but this is the harsh reality of war. Let us wipe away our own and women’s tears after the Victory, let us worship every widow, mother, bride, sister for the feat of their men.
    The first stage of the operation…

    We underestimated the enemy in its strength of informational, ideological, psychological repulsion, they were waiting for us. Literally on the very first day, with a snap of American bloody fingers – we deprived the support of civilians and the units of the Ukrainian armed forces ready to become neutral. Millions of dollars, thousands of IT specialists, global media corporations cut off Ukraine from any objective information, stinking up our country.

    Our main losses were in the first three days. Now they are rapidly diminishing, the Russian Army is no longer conducting a peacekeeping and humanitarian operation similar to the Crimean operation. The fighters received other orders, got involved, became angry, gathered, and their hopes for active support of civilians and the conscious units of the Ukrainian army were dashed.

    There are few flowers and loaves, people are crushed by propaganda and lies, and terrified into insanity by the Nazis. The calculations miss another important point – almost 600 thousand Ukrainians have gone through the ATO (Anti-Terrorism Operation) zone in Donbass since 2014, today they have joined the territorial defence all over the place, many have something to fear. Especially on the wave of fake executions without trial by the ATO personnel.

    Imagine that during the year of service there, what the Nazis stuffed into their heads, gave them the opportunity to shoot at the settlements of “quilted jackets and colorads” with impunity, to mock the civilian population there. So, the calculation for local help and the Ukrainian army did not work, the cancer in Ukrainian society is simply monstrous. But… we will cure it.

    If we explain our tactics of the first twenty-four hours…it is a creatively reworked “reconnaissance battle” of the Great Patriotic War. Only with deep and rapid penetration into Nazi-occupied territory. We provoked the enemy’s activity by tactical groups, deliberately pulling Ukrainian army units and National Security Forces from their locations. Withstanding with small numbers the terrible counterattacks by tanks and armoured vehicles, outnumbered by the motorised infantry.

    Sometimes it was impossible to suppress Grads, artillery and mortars hidden in residential areas that were raining on you. Urban areas could not be cleared methodically by combat formations, by calling supporting fire, attack helicopters, sappers, flamethrowers, tanks to blow-up machine-gun points in houses and civilian infrastructure facilities.

    This is a war unfamiliar to us veterans. Especially when the skies are under your full control, airfields are jammed with attack planes and bombers, operational-tactical missile systems are in service and there is a mass of heavy artillery. It is now clear even to civilians: the correct name for what is happening is really a “special military operation on denazification”. The demilitarisation of the Independent was completed at the end of the third day.

    The Ukrainian army, as a unified, manageable and effective structure, has ceased to exist. Today, there are dozens of groups of different sizes, isolated from one another, hiding in towns and villages. There is no centralised supply, no air support and no reinforcements. They are unable to act within the framework of any plans of the Ukrainian General Staff. Just crowds of armed men with orders to stand to the death.

    The main groups North and East, that’s the 22 brigades charged with the honourable duty of drowning Donbass in blood in early March, have been decapitated and deprived of command. We beat them to it by a week or two by launching our own special operation. Now 150,000 people (together with the National Security Forces) are marinating in “cauldrons”, cut off from each other. As a matter of fact, this was done by a smaller Russian force…and in five days.

    Russian Colonel General On Ukraine: Without Hysterics And Insults

    There is no organised resistance in other operational areas. Separate Ukrainian army units, National Security Forces, sabotage groups. Each operates at its own discretion, with varying degrees of activity. There is no way to move in columns, regroup, replenish ammunition, fuel and lubricants or equipment even in local warehouses, everything is systematically destroyed by high-precision weapons and aircraft.

    In a week, 80% of the Ukrainian armed forces will be completely deprived of ammunition, fuel, medicine and food. Mentally and physically exhausted, without a unified command, goals and objectives. This is a terrible thing for an army, dejection and decay. Especially for the Ukrainian army, which is sustained by fear, propped up by the Bandera detachments. Soldiers fear for the fate of their families on the home front.
    Second stage of the operation…

    Recognisably, the Syrian scenario. A neutral or terrorist-fearing population, among which it is almost impossible to identify militants. The Russian Army does not take such settlements, it surrounds cities with Bandera National Security Forces. Soon we will be observing buses and “export tours” in the direction of the Western region. How they will get burned without any support and assistance from outside.

    Elsewhere in the city they take on a semi-enclave, thereby inviting the defenders to leave the area on their own. No organised military columns, no heavy equipment, this stuff is destroyed. Privately, expensive. Yes, there is the danger of large numbers of sabotage groups, but strategically the three main tasks of the special operation are being resolved: minimising losses among civilians and infrastructure, our units and the Ukrainian army.

    It is too luxurious a gift for Washington and the EuroReich to have Russians and Ukrainians slaughtering each other with gusto. The Bandera “partisan units” will have a nerve-racking experience, but the commanders’ idea is not bad. They will become lawful prey to the counter-terrorist units, the military police and Ramzan Kadyrov’s men from the National Guard. Who do not take terrorists as prisoners, who kill them where they find them. Denazification in the truest sense of the word.

    An even sadder fate awaits the numerous mercenaries of the EuroReich, from which they form not military units (sometimes), but sabotage and tactical groups. Our General Staff has already stated that it does not consider them combatants with all the ensuring consequences, no conventions on prisoners of war work here. I am sure that a special, cruel and purposeful hunt will be conducted for these “soldiers of fortune”. Poor devils…
    Third stage of the operation

    I will not tell you in detail how and where the fighting unfolds, there is enough information from professional experts in the public domain. But everything is happening strictly according to plans, we have not even started transferring reserves, and they are standing in columns in the border areas. Losses are not just tolerable (from a military statistical point of view) – insignificant. Not a single unit has been allocated for re-formation or rest, which means it is fully combat-ready.

    Look at the map, calculate the distances, marching, constant fighting, regrouping, manoeuvring for dozens of kilometres, and remember – our guys are up against the third largest army in Europe and prohibitively motivated Nazi formations. We have to bring up the rear, take basic rest, maintain equipment, and perform a lot of previously unintended actions.

    There is no need to hound anyone, to demand more decisive action, Victory flags over Mariupol, Sumy, Chernigov, Kharkov, Odessa and even less so over useless Kiev with three million panic-stricken, propaganda-pumped citizens. The objectives of the operation, strategy and tactics are a whole new page in the art of war; haste is unacceptable.

    A classmate of mine from the academy asked in a “private” thread yesterday:

    Why isn’t the military aid to Ukraine being destroyed right at the airport upon arrival?
    Why is it even possible for NATO transporters to enter Ukrainian airspace?
    Do you get the feeling that our diplomats are beginning to discharge the army of its efforts? I have all sorts of bad thoughts running through my head.

    On point number three. There will be no discharging, all the goals of the special operation will be fulfilled. This has been categorically repeated every day by the hardened Lavrov, announced yesterday by V.V. Putin. French “peacemaker” Macron wiped out with his mediation. And Medinsky in Belovezhskaya Pushcha is subtly mocking the metrosexuals from the Ukrainian delegation. There is not one there to talk to.

    Look at brave Commander-in-Chief Ze, the way he looks. A complete personality breakdown on drugs. He will not be allowed to negotiate by the Americans and his own Nazis will kill him. The task is different – to completely ruin the country, to drown it in chaos, but no one will get it.

    The special operation does not stop, there will be no more delays. Every day of delay hurts us categorically, unplanned diplomatic, political, economic, and military problems appear. Only swiftness and onslaught, before the situation in the West starts to be assessed with a cool head.

    About flying transports with NATO insignia to deliver weapons. This is impossible, the skies over the Independent and southern Russia are closed to flights. They will be ground transported from Poland. And we will not destroy such “humanitarian aid” convoys. Why, you may ask? Ask another question: who exactly is in power in the Ukraine?

    Blatant Nazis. Taking millions of civilian hostages in cities without humanitarian corridors, driving terrified people into basements and underground stations. By poisoning them with lies about “Russian atrocities”, mass shootings, executions, violence, carpet bombings. Placing civilians with machine guns near strategic control and command facilities. Like in Kiev outside the SBU building adjacent to Sofia Kyevskaya [Translator’s note: St-Sophia of Kiev Cathedral].

    Zelensky’s handlers and the Bandera battalions are setting up a humanitarian disaster, leaving towns and villages in Donbass to blow up everything: bridges, substations, pumping stations. Remember the liberation of Ukraine and 1945, the agony of the Third Reich. A quote from a demoniac, framed orders to destroy the entire infrastructure of Germany: “if the war is lost, it makes absolutely no difference that the people die”.

    It is useful to know history in order to predict Nazi behaviour. It is such an ideology, a social norm of life, a world view.

    Now, military convoys will not be destroyed for three reasons. First, they are trophies. Second, the weapons will not reach the combat-ready units of the Ukrainian army and the national battalions of the south-east: the addressees are in “cauldrons”. Third, everything will be transported by regular civilian trucks, the rear transport of the Ukrainian army units being with their units or destroyed in parking lots.

    Track down and hit container trucks? Yes, we can. Just keep in mind – all roads to border checkpoints with “kind-hearted Europe” are jammed with convoys of vehicles of fleeing Ukrainians for a good hundred kilometres, the traffic there is terrible. There are women and children in the cars. And Poland and Hungary have not moved the checkpoints deep into their territories, nor have they increased the capacity of the checkpoints with additional staff.

    In other words, Ukrainian border guards and their “colleagues” are keeping people waiting 24 hours to cross the border. Shall I go on describing the scenario that Kiev and Washington are counting on? Or can you think for yourself what kind of television picture the whole “civilized world” is expecting? Dreaming that the bloodthirsty Russians will start bombing civilian cars… Or the railways.

    But there is little faith in such scenarios, it is clear to everyone – Ukraine is completely lost, any amount of weapons will not help it any more. But some part is sure to be delivered to Lvov, getting mercenaries with Bandera ideologues. And then groups will go out to commit sabotage, to intimidate local administrations across the country, to try to disrupt our communications and supply lines.

    But this is another special operation, a police operation. Which the Ukrainians themselves are capable of carrying out with minimal Russian help once they get over the shock. This is their land; they have to live there. If they proclaim a reward of five thousand dollars for an anonymous denunciation, all the saboteurs and partisans will be gone in a day. It’s a country like that.
    But we’ll succeed before …

    I want to reassure you, it’s the twelfth day our guys are operating in a different operational and tactical reality, casualties will be rapidly decreasing. If before there was a strict order not to cause even hypothetical harm to civilians and civilian objects…today it has been changed. In a single phrase: “not to the detriment of unit personnel”. As a military man I am completely satisfied: now the humanitarian facetious remarks are over, the real work will begin.

    You fire on a convoy – you get hit back across the military technical menu. Orders like this only work that way. Civilian casualties? Yes, some casualties are inevitable, but it’s not our fault. We don’t storm cities according to the Charters, we bypass them or operate surgically with special forces, as in Kharkov. Using a previously unknown tactic of urban combat by night manoeuvre groups. We will talk about this separately.

    Let the Ukrainians marinate in the cities themselves, digesting the Banderites and the “territorial battalions” duped by Nazi propaganda. They can no longer cope with the looters, what kind of “reflection of aggression” is it? This is not our problem now, however harsh the words may sound.

    The final breakthrough will come after Kharkov is cleared, Odessa is blockaded or taken. All the heroic self-defence forces of the other settlements will dissipate on their own, and there are already clear signs of humanitarian disaster in the encircled cities. The morass, when it is scrupulously false, subsides most quickly in darkness, refreshing coolness and on an empty stomach.

    The population is not mentally prepared to stand their ground to the last, Ukrainian social media is already full of messages from places where local administrations have been left behind by the Russian army, food supplies are uninterrupted, street lights are on and local police are controlling the streets. With each passing day, the fake hysteria will subside and the drugged-out minds will wonder: what’s next?

    Will the encircled Banderites begin to brutalise in their powerless rage? Well, the Ukrainians also have to bear this cross on their own. Of course, we will try to do everything we can to rescue the children and the elderly. But Putin will not allow us to take sensitive losses, this is not that kind of war.

    We are not the ones who raised, nurtured and allowed to seize power and hostage an entire nation. We did not arm them and send them to kill Donbass and teach them to hate Russians. Criminal indifference and complicity are also a punishable act. Not by us, by life itself.

  326. Question 2– Why is the media trying to convince the Ukrainian people that they can prevail in their war against Russia? If what you say is correct, then all the civilians that are being sent to fight the Russian army, are dying in a war they can’t win. I don’t understand why the media would want to mislead people on something so serious. What are your thoughts on the matter?

    because the West needs real life bodies and genuine casualties to continue to drum up hysteria about “evil” Russians.

    too many of us saw through the fake attacks of the past, ie Syria chemical weapons.

    “our” hope (the U.S.) is to create a real life situation of war crimes to permanently tar Putin and refortify fortress Eurolandia+Anglosphere against the “slanty eyed” east.

    blocs are being formed. this will be used to “otherise” the other side as being inhumane and therefore not worthy of basic human rights.

    Ukraine’s dead bodies are a plus for “US”.

    I predict the propagandist will not answer your question.

    To do so, would require him to be empathetic toward the object he wishes to destroy.

    I already used the “howitzer pointed at your house argument” and it was conveniently ignored.

    Ron Unz’s lightly edited comment section, does allow looney-tunes and crazies to enter. It allows people who live in an alternate universe to make claims. It allows propagandists who have mal-intent, who intend to derail truth-seekers.

    1 – Cartoon intended to mock my position on wars was based on false presumptions.
    2 – Article about Orthodox faith confirmed they have no “explicit just war theory“.
    3 – Guardian article on the concept of “indivisible security” concluded it is relative.
    4 – Lavrov speech and comments (transcript) failed to state any serious threats to Russia.

    Cartoon does mock your position, and is not based on false assumptions. The west wars were WARS OF AGRESSION, not just wars.

    Wars of aggression also required mal-intent, and lies. The West lied their way into wars, including using false flags and various techniques now widely known.

    The article about Orthodox just war theory explains how they differ from the Catholic version. Because they don’t have a name for it, doesn’t mean it does not exist. This is PILPUL on your part.

    Guardian article explicitly defines the exact time and place, when indivisible security concept was signed into law.

    Lavrov speech even included how the West is threatening China. There are also numerous UNZ articles posted, where you appear and try to put up a smoke screen. Lavrov didn’t even include many hundreds of examples of Western threats built up since the Ukraine false flag coup.

    In other words, you are a bad faith actor.

    You have no grasp of Russian strategy re Nicolaev. It simply is a siege, involving comparatively small forces but total air supremacy. Russia has not even engaged their first team forces yet. With the cleansing of the murderous fascists in Mariupol—once a major industrial centered, but degraded under Azov Brigade occupation; then will see major Russian advances.

    Essentially, the Ukie army is already destroyed, with no re-equipment or re-supply and devoid of centralized command and control. It has become the ghost of a 300,000 man army. Meanwhile, Russian units remain intact militarily and that 150,000 commitment maintains unit integrity.

    Another propaganda technique is to take a subject at hand, and then redefine it to a triviality.

    It seems you are outing yourself as a propagandist, in which case you are performing rather poorly. It was up to you to show evidence of a security threat to Russia, coming from Ukraine, and so severe that it would made its war against that country necessary. You could not do this and eventually linked to a long transcript of a speech by Lavrov, which I examined.

    From what I determined, all he had to say on that specific issue was “militarisation and Nazification“, which are just vague catch-phrases that are supposed to sound threatening. Since the war is still continuing, after four weeks, this purported threat to Russia is apparently always everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I did not redefine anything.

    By now, most people have figured out that this excuse is indeed trivial, namely mere propaganda intended to trigger people’s emotions. Many could easily figure this out at the outset because “militarisation and Nazification” had not been publicly invoked as matters of concern until just a few days before the war, probably deriving from focus group sessions.

    Hey dipstick, almost every major city is still under Ukrainian control. We have yet to see a Russian soldier in Zaporozhye but they are just out there on the perimeter of the city……by design. It feels so peaceful that I am almost tempted to drive out to my dacha. Damn, I really need to get out there at this time of the year.

    There is an edict from the Russian leadership not to attack civilians or infrastructure. The only place they have fully engaged is Mariupol and that was after weeks of trying to empty the city of civilians.

    The clean up of the Donbass cities will follow and then I suspect they will begin to close the greater cauldron of central Ukraine. That will include Kiev and Odessa and every where east of there. After that is anyone’s guess but I would think that that is the time to restructure the Ukrainian borders and government.

    In order to redefine, then it is important that the propagandist appear as if impartial and objective. The objectivity requires propagandist to appear as if reasonable, ergo a reasonable tone must be maintained at all times. Real people do not have a flat inflection tone, they react to provocation.

    This goes back to the Talmudist rabbis, who “remove” emotion by molestation and other cult-indoctrination techniques. Their “broken” victims eventually then assume a detached tone of superiority and objectivity when they are rebuilt in the image that the rabbis want.

    Have you noticed how a lot of these upper level ((Jews)) like ((Chuck Schumer)) take a patronizing tone with dissidents or opposition, as if they patiently explaining the way the world works to a child? ((Schumer)) is a broken man and a tool who is continuing on the sick, perverted, self-serving rabbinical Golden Calf agenda. Top ((Jews)) are its primary beneficiaries and guardians.

    The ((Cousinhood)) transmuted this warped and perverted control technique to the elite Brits, who are attempting to infect the world via the remnant British Empire and Anglosphere.

    Only now that the Internet has allowed the masses to put it all together and connect the dots are the ((Jews)) and their sadomasochistic stooges finally facing final judgement.

    Another Russian shill. The fact is that Putin’s army is on the ropes. It is running out of food, munitions and morale. Many Russian units have lost over 50% of their troops or more and are combat ineffective.

    Mariuopol still stands in Ukrainian hands, as does Kyiv, Kharkiv, Odesa, Mykolaev, and other major Ukrainian cities. Without Mariuopol Russia cannot complete its land bridge it failed to get in 2014. Morale wise the Ukrainians are determined, the Russians demoralized and surrendering in ever growing numbers, or simply leaving their tanks and equipment and fading into the woods to try to get back to Russia.

    Ukraine has killed over 12 Russian generals, and a number of other high ranking officers. Troops (and officers) are self-inflicting wounds. Can anyone remember the dire prophecies of these shills that Kyiv would fall within 24-48 hours? And they have kept revising their fake news and prophecies to this day (day 28) of Putin’s invasion – or year 8 of Putin’s War – and still have not taken Kyiv. And we are supposed to believe the Russians are winning? Really? In what alternative universe?

    Mark Levin has spoken of these people: https://www.thefreedomtimes.com/2022/03/15/levin-slams-so-called-america-firsters-the-putin-wing-of-both-parties-over-ukraine-biolabs-story/ 

    And Russia is winning so well that they have reinstituted blocking or barrier troops to kill Russian troops with not enough enthusiasm in the battle who try to retreat or run. Does this sound like an army that is winning? Hardly.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10641565/Russian-execution-squads-orders-kill-defectors-writes-IAN-BIRRELL.html

    According to Ukrainian sources they have killed 15,600 Russian troops, wounded another 30,000 and according to various reports destroyed over 20% of the Russian army to date. To me this doesn’t sound like a victorious army. Quite the opposite.

    No question that you can break a persons soul early on, and then mold it to become deformed.

    As I have argued, after Hillel, the Jewish religion went off the rails.

    The mammonites are always with us, they are born into our society. If you have a society that is incapable of sniffing them out, and then guiding them into professions where they can do no harm, then your society is doomed.

    They are especially drawn to positions of power and authority.

    Western democracies are doomed because they cannot sniff these people out.

    I’m one of the first people to use the term Jew and put brackets around our (((friends))). I would prefer to use the term Jerusalemite, following Atzmon’s framework.

    But, really, all people groups (civilizations) create these types of damaged people, but some civilizations are better than others at suppressing them, and not allowing them to gain power in sensitive positions of the social organization.

    They way to go after the cults is to use take the gold, or the bullet techniques. Once you get one person within the cult to spill the beans, he is allowed to take the gold and run. Others will get the bullet, especially if they resist spilling more beans.

    You cannot reform these types of people. They have been damaged, and if we still had a circular theory of life, they would be allowed to re-incarnate, and come back to try again.

    (Hillel destroyed the circular theory of time and life, and now the entire western world brain has been skull fu*ked with a false worldview, where you have to pay perpetual debts to a creditor class. We pay for our own dispossession.)

    The author of this post completely misses the mark. I suppose the left, when they blamed Bush all those years, think it is fair game to go after the Clintons. Ah, the juvenile blame game among partisans!

    After the Cold War ended, Russian efforts to mimic the West in terms of its political and financial systems were gradual. Citizens here became restless with the “gold rush” mentality of the new corporate class, led by Putin!, to cash in on opportunities to strike it rich. Throwing them the proverbial bone, Putin smartly began the chant of “Russia, Russia, Russia”, striking a chord among the people who want to remember when they were a superpower challenging American power in the world, keeping the “peasants” occupied with nationalistic fervor while Putin and his henchmen plunder the “mother country”.

    So, in a 2014 comment, against Israel’s slaughter of 2,000+ Palestinians trapped in Gaza like sardines, you are silent, but put in the effort to complain about Putin instilling pride and unity among Russian citizens, while simultaneously defending Hillary Clinton from an author providing a left anti-war critique of her history of warmongering, suggesting your indifference to that history. “Absolutely”, indeed.

    “Whatever the truth about Putin (focusing “analysis” on one man is infantile)”

    You should take your own advice.

    Good come back.

    “your own “leaders” in the West are at least as bad”

    LOL, that’s a second grade argument. The fact of the matter is that Putin is ex-KGB…

    The point, bruh, is that one should look at the board in his eye, clean his house, settle his own domestic affairs, before lashing out at his neighbor. My neighbor’s grass might be long, his hedges untrimmed, but who am I to chastise him when I live in a corrupt collapsing crack house of nation, where if I complain too much to Justin, my land lord, he freezes my bank account. Sure makes me feel powerless. But shaking my fist at Putin makes me feel better.

    Shouldn’t the Russian people have a voice in their own society

    Did they have a voice under Yeltsin? Did it sound like the voice of Weimar era Germans?

    Do YOU stand with me? Yes or no?

    No, I don’t stand with Soreweenus, sorry. But what would it mean if I did? What practical impact can come from jumping on the condemn Putin bandwaggon? The only way to be on that bandwaggon is to completely ignore Russia’s security concerns, to completely ignore its attempts to obtain written understanding from the West of those concerns, to completely ignore 8 years of Kiev shelling Donbass, and to embrace the narrative of hypocritical US warmongers, who over the last 20 years have established that national sovereignty can be brutally violated on the whim of a gaggle of neocons. On the level of narrative, standing against Putin means embracing the hypocritical bleating of western mass murderers.

    And what about the practical aspect of all this? How does dismissing Russia’s security objectives accomplish anything constructive? Does it end the war sooner? Does it fix the massive fuel and food price crises that have resulted from the insane sanctions regime imposed by the West (now on China for not “condemning Putin”)?

    From your commenting past I recall you are one of those compassionate wokesters who cares about all the brown people who have to suffer the existence of straight white males like me. Am I in the ball park? Good. Well, if Americans are paying \$7.00/gallon for gas and record food prices, what do you think is about to befall people in Africa, SE Asia, Latin America? If this war keeps going, we are looking at a strong chance of major famine throughout much of the world. You okay with that? Worth it to stick it to Putin? You related to Madeleine Albright?

    “Condemning Putin ™” , as opposed to trying to strike a balance and get westerners to see Russia’s perspective, accomplishes only one thing: it encourages pro-war sentiment and thus helps to escalate a regional conflict into a wider one.

    It seems you are outing yourself as a propagandist, in which case you are performing rather poorly. It was up to you to show evidence of a security threat to Russia, coming from Ukraine, and so severe that it would made its war against that country necessary. You could not do this and eventually linked to a long transcript of a speech by Lavrov, which I examined.

    You are doing it again, and are EXPOSING YOURSELF AS FOOLISH.

    What a propagandist does is try to reverse attribute. Something like a child, it bounce off of me and hits you. Reverse projection/Reverse attribution.

    Then you demean your opponent as performing poorly, etc.

    By demeaning you place yourself above, in a superior position, as the avatar of all that is good and logical and god-like. It is quite something to behold, the practitioner of the art of propaganda.

    YOU EXAMINED LAVROV, let us all bow down to your magnificence. Do you glow and blind us with your radiance too?

    I even told you, your opinion doesn’t matter. You cannot fathom that, as there seems to be something wrong with your personality.

    Do you really think that major countries like China, who have sided with Russia care about your position. How about India?

    They have examined the facts and are coming to Russia’s defense. Clearly Russia was provoked and poked – the bear was poked.

    Aside from that, missile deployment is not even an issue in Russia’s conflict with Ukraine. Instead, ballistic missiles are a bilateral matter, for negotiations between the US and Russia

    Good job propagandist.

    No mention in your diatribe about the security letters that Russia sent to the U.S. , which broached that very topic. Russians knew full well that the U.S. had to be engaged bilaterally in one document, and the other document was aimed at NATO.

    The U.S. effectively said, “Talk to the hand.” Then the 60,000 Urkainian troops amassed on the border with the Donbass, increased shelling to a great extent.

    In other words, the U.S. said F…U.. to the Russians in the most blatant way possible, killing civilians in the Donbass.

    The OSCE has documented the increased shelling and anybody who is not a propagandist can connect the dots, and overlay the timelines.

    The Oligarchy which owns the MSM (about six owners) suppressed information about the security letters, so in this way people like you can get traction to then spin your BS.

    OK, nokangaroos in Austria. If you watch the video posted by Ron Unz and care to check what
    military equipment Ukraine had and listen the first minute of the video you know it is total bullshit.
    The guy, claimed to be a known Marine analysist, says that Ukraine is NATO compatible. Simply check the equipment (if you have no other source, use the Wikipedia, Ukrainian Ground Force Equipment, it is not badly off). Their equipment is mainly the old Soviet stuff and none of it is NATO compatible, which is confirmed by NATO not being able to even consider taking Ukraine now. Then you have in the video all junk how foreign fighters would be treated as mercendaries, while they get an Ukrainian citizenship if they got there and should be treated as soldiers. If you have worked in the military (I have) you see how false the whole video is. But here comes the important thing: all countries that have lived next to Russia (what these Unz pro-Putin commenters have not0 all want to get as far from Russia as possible. This is not the case with the States of the USA. Something is wrong with Russians, other people do not want them to rule over you. There is no need to invent a Jewish conspiracy (which there are many) to explain why some country does not want to be in the Russian sphere of influence. It is simply not good for them. And there is no justification why Russia should have power over them. Ukraine may actually get out, though it may lose the war, and that would be good, not bad. Just try to think like an Eastern European, not as an Austrian where there are no kangoroos, and not like there Putin funs here. Russians are Russians even when fried in butter.

Had you understood my comment, you would realize that I mean that Congo is the main supporter of cobalt and USA does not have radars that would have tracked a plane that dropped bombs to Mariupol theater or hospital because even Awacs sees only 30 km. Please listen the video posted by Ron Unz starting by explaining how Ukraine is NATO compatible and could any time be plugged to the NATO systems just like Germany (really!), then check what Ukraine equipment actually is (mainly old Soviet era stuff that they inherited and have to some extend updated, like 2500 tanks but mostly T-64 versions, 3700 artillery pieces, but old, some 15,000 vehicles for infantry, some MBPs, most not, and so on and so on). You realize this is not NATO compatible stuff and whoever made this video was totally bullshitting you from the beginning of the two hour talk to the end.

    Just to continue to confirm the evaluation: the guy in the video ways that Russia will shoot down S-300 air-defence systems if Westerners send them. That’s funny, the guy is unaware that Ukraine has quite many S-300 around Kyiv and also quite many BUKs (which by the way is the reason why Russia is not flying so many sorties, they do not have complete air supremacy), though many were destroyed in 24. Feb strategic strike, but Ukraine air defence is still working and shooting Iskanders and Russian planes, which is why they fly so low as to be hit by a Stinger.

    The guy in the video is so unaware of military issues (like by the way is the author of the article and the majority of commenters) that I doubt he is the famous analysists he claims to be, or if he is, this analysist is Russian paid propagandists. You should read what real military analysists write about this war. It is not what the Russian trolls write here. It is an interesting war in many ways, and we do not yet know the outcome.

    So. You admit to being ex-military. Nothing wrong with that, per se…unless your background is in intelligence or special forces. As a military analyst, you should be advised that the Khazarian Mafia group which controls Ukraine (along with Galician Neo-nazi fascists as their unbelievable bed-partners) happen to be Talmudist Jews with no ancestry from the ancient Hebrews. Their Kagan converted Khazaria to Babylonian Talmudism in ca. 740 A.D.

    The above story is not the whole of the tale. Those Ukies were bombarding and bombing the Donetsk and Luhansk provinces since the U\$\$A fomented coup on 2-22-14. The 14 is an interesting figure, as that is how many mostly civilians died under those barrages, some 14, ooo dead. That is why Mama Bear intervened. The Ukies had lined up more than half their 300,000-man army (including most of those fascist and mercenary units such as Blackwater/Academi) to massacre the people of those primarily ethnically Russian provinces.

    Unless you are directly connected with the U\$\$A military or intel agencies, you appear to be the victim of a totally one-sided mass-media of misinformation and general mindfuckery.

    Expert: Fakes of Kiev propaganda are exposed even by foreign journalists

    [MORE]

    March 23, 2022, 20:28
    Photo: Mikhail Voskresensky/RIA Novosti
    Text: Daria Volkova
    “TV footage shows how our soldiers distribute food to civilians who have been sitting in basements without food for several days. If our military were hungry, would they distribute food so generously to the locals?” – Sergey Goncharov, a veteran of Alpha, told the newspaper Vzglyad. So he commented on the reports of the Ukrainian blogosphere that the Russian military in Ukraine allegedly lacks foodstuffs.

    “Not only we in Russia, but the whole world has already seen television footage of caravans of our trucks bringing tons of cargo to Mariupol and other liberated cities, primarily food,” recalls Sergey Goncharov, honorary president of the International Association of Veterans of the Alpha Antiterrorism Unit.

    “The fact that such fakes of Kiev propaganda are unfounded is already confirmed by foreign journalists, although they do not like us. Western TV channels also show how civilians of Ukraine, including children, carry in their hands this already famous army ration pack with a green star,” the expert explained.

    By the way, Ukrainian officials themselves, especially local ones, Goncharov notes, often leave ordinary residents to their fate. “It is clear to them that the situation in military terms will be completely lost. Their only task is to stay in semi-surrounded cities as long as possible and keep peaceful citizens in them without any supply of food and medicines,” the expert notes.

    “I also came across other fakes: for example, that the Russian military is allegedly frostbitten en masse in Ukraine. You can only laugh at this. After all, spring has begun in Ukraine – soon the first leaves will appear on the trees there. I don’t know who froze what there, but our military definitely doesn’t have such a problem,” Goncharov summed up.

    Russian forces were unprepared, poorly led and supplied, and have been viciously mauled by heroic white men, women, and even civilian volunteers, fighting to protect their land from invaders.

    Russian special forces are looting gas-stations at gunpoint to get food and fuel! Yeah they’re
    really winning big time Larry! LOL.

    9000-10,000 dead (more by now for sure), and 16 thousand plus other casualties. Vast loss of armor, trucks, and other materials.

    Russian attack helicopters have been seen lobbing their unguided missiles skyward instead of pressing to attack! The only reason to do that (which is an ipso facto war crime in that they will certainly fall indiscriminately), is because their pilots are too damn scared of the Ukrainian air defense to actually do a real attack!

    (But you cool-aid drinkers want to pretend Russian rules the skies over Ukraine? What a joke.)

    Yes, Putin is a corrupt jew-pet but the Ukrainians aren’t fighting for the literally “bad actor” jewZelensky either — they are fighting for their folk, and doing so with bold brilliance.

    As far as those Azov “Nazis” — wow they slaughter Russian cannon-fodder at a rate we haven’t seen since Heroic “Nazi” Germany saved half of Europe from (((Russian))) tyranny by pre-empting the treacherous stab in the back of the “Operation Thunderbolt” meant to conquer Europe while the British and Ami dupes kept Germany busy to the West.

    In other words — The “Not-sees” were the good guys — why do you perseverate on all that debunked Jewish and “Allied” lying about Germany in World War Jew point 2?

    Russians are turning to mass murder, razing cities, starving people (they seem to especially like starving those Ukrainians, no?).

    Maybe they will “win” by doing that?

    Or maybe they won’t (as long as the Ukrainian heroes get enough weapons and support to keep fighting so fiercely.

    But one thing for sure — those who morally support this Russian aggression will be losers — of moral standing before the decency of man.

    If Puty the Jewpet didnt’ like what the Western branch of the Globalist Jewish hegemony was doing to him he could have attack them directly instead of taking it out on the Ukrainians.

    He could have put the Holy-Hoax in its grave for one, Confirmed the Holodomor (and who was responsible), admitted that Barbarossa was a justified and Heroic pre-emption of Treacherous USSR evil designs, oh and apologized for murdering all those millions of Germans after the war and for raping all the women, grandmas and little girls.

But if right is might, then you have to have a military that is better than what we see as the Russian military today. It does not have the might that gives the right. It has only the power to destroy cities with missiles, or to go nuclear. But for might there has to be more. Especially if every nation wants to leave the sphere of influence of some mighty country, then maybe it it does not have the might and will not prevail in the long term.

    1. Mariupol.
    Street fighting. The DPR authorities claim to control about 70% of the city’s residential development and certain parts of the industrial development. The enemy continues to offer stubborn resistance. According to a number of reports, no prisoners will be taken after March 23. They are still offering to hand over their weapons and surrender.

    2. The Ugledar direction.
    After Stepnoye and Slavnoye, the fighting shifted to Novomikhailovka, which covers the Marinka-Kurakhovo highway from the south. Fighting continued there during the day.
    There are no big changes near Velikaya Novoselka yet.

    3. Maryinka.
    Slow squeezing of the enemy from the village. The troops are gradually advancing, but at such a pace it may take from 5 to 7 days to occupy Maryinka, which is not surprising, since we are talking about hacking the most powerful fortified area, which is second only to Avdeevsky.

    4. Avdiivka.
    There are no big advances under Avdiivka itself. But to the north, the fighting has already shifted to Novobakhmutovka and Novoselka-2, where the DPR army is pushing back the battered units of the 25th odshbr of the AFU, which are moving away from Verkhnetoretsky.

    5. LPR.
    Lisichansk-Severodonetsk-Popasnaya.
    No significant progress was observed.
    Rubezhnoye was shelled by artillery and Grads.

    6. Izyum
    Heavy fighting continued in the area of Izyum and, above all, for Kamenka, where the AFU is trying to prevent the full control of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation over the village and the advance to the Slavyansk-Kramatorsk agglomeration and Barvenkovo.
    There is also no serious progress in the direction of Lozova yet.

    7. Kharkov.
    Without significant changes. Fighting of varying intensity to the north and west. In Kharkov itself , it turns out that corpses are still being dug up in the building of the OGA (expansion unclear) – by 23 March
    they have already dug up 24 bodies from among the local Volkssturm. Excavations are continuing.

    8. Zaporozhye.
    On the Gulyai-Pole-Orekhov-Vasilevka line without significant changes. To the north, the enemy is strengthening Pavlograd and is trying to quickly restore the operation of the Pavlograd-2 station after a missile strike.
    The part of the Nikolaev grouping of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation that has gone to Nikopol is also not moving towards the city yet.
    In the direction of Krivoy Rog, no progress towards the regional centre was also reported. Locals say that the troops are strengthening 10-20 km from the city.

    9. Kiev.
    Fighting continued to the west and southwest of Kiev. The Russian Armed Forces are trying to move south, in the direction of Vasilkov. The enemy defends stubbornly.
    Fighting also continued in the city of Irpen, part of which is controlled by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Note Bucha, Vorzel, Gostomel also for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. In the afternoon, a fake flashed about the “encirclement” of all Russian troops and disappeared on the Internet.
    To the east of Kiev, fighting took place in the area of several villages to the northeast and east of the Brovary district.

    10. Nikolayev- Odessa.
    Near Nikolayev without major changes, rocket attacks on targets in and around the city, plus exchanges of artillery strikes.
    Odessa is also unchanged — attacks on military facilities around the city continue. There are no landings.

    With a nuclear first strike option now as US policy, we may yet see a US reaction if for no other reason but to get at those resources.

    How is it possible to make a nuclear first strike without immediately receiving as a reply the launching of ALL the opponent’s nuclear arsenal ?
    The politicians and the rabid MSM pushing for this may be idiots, but not the military people behind the buttons. They will know when those missiles are being launched and coming, and they know they have just a few minutes window to launch theirs before being destroyed.

    And then it will be game over for everybody…

    I am aware of the things you mention, but let us not be moralists in this issue. Russia has now made too much bad optics and that has consequences. If Russia was tricked into this by some other powers that be, then that is politics. But I only mentioned that the video Ron Unz posted is an especially bad analysis of the military situation and even poor propaganda. Instead of South Front and Veterans Today you can follow Polish TVN24 in the satellite Hotbird (assuming that nokangoroos means Austria, not Australia), and you can there follow also Ukraine24, France24, Turkish TRT and even RLE/RL, (radio free europe, quite white propaganda in Russian, much listened in the Soviet times). You have there many interviews of people who escaped the war. Where did they escape? To Russia? No, only 190,000 there and those who went were mostly Russians. 2M went to Poland and the rest to EU. Why so? Because it really is so that Russia is the offender and it is not trying to avoid civilian causalities and people do not see it as a liberator and a place where they want to be. So, drop those articles written by trolls and listen and see what the real people say. There are so many of them, in Poland over 2 million. If they felt that the Azov brigade is keeping them as hostage, they would say so, but they say that Russians are bombing their cities without them having done anything. Many of these people have Russian as their mother tongue. They wish that Putin burns in Hell, they do not want him to save them from the terrible UkriNazis. I have followed those channels and this is the fact.

    Kaliningrad has been there since the end of WWII. NATO has been west of Berlin when it was created, and has been expanding eastward for no other reason except to eventually attack Russia as what other possible reason could there be for this considering that the Warsaw pact is no more? NATO has demonstrated that it is an evil warmongering organisation that has destroyed countries that never threatened any of its member states. Now it has met its match and deserves all it has coming its way. It is ridiculous to now cast Russia as an aggressor for stopping the further expansion of NATO to its borders. East European countries are insane if they continue to insist on their “right” to remain in NATO. Maybe Russia will bring in their former victims from Iraq, Syria and Libya to take their revenge on NATO forces if they set one foot into Ukraine and on their soldiers already there who are disguised as mercenaries, instructors, consultants and volunteers. NATO has been the one playing the might is right game against nations that were no match for this alliance of countless countries where even crappy useless newcomers from eastern Europe were willing to gang up on nations in the Middle East who had no disputes with them. But whether NATO would remain united and all the member states participate against Russia, especially when missiles start hitting bases all across Europe, remains to be seen. And even without the need to go nuclear.

    Imagine if Putin had admitted and started making amends for the the Holodomor, pointed out that Jews lead it (even though Russians followed their lead), pointed out the Jews had taken over their country once again, then held out the hand of Slavic solidarity…

    Ridiculous in practical terms? But what the heck good is this stupid war gonna do for the white race?

    Instead he denies the Holodomor, Tells them they don’t exist, Won’t name the Jew, Calls them “Nazis” (which is actually a compliment though actually a trample-tag telling the herd to kill you), makes ludicrously arrogant demands of this nonexistent “fake-nation”, then invades their lands!

    No wonder the Ukrainians are fighting so hard!

    (and laying out dead Russian soldiers in “Z” formations in fields to mock the “Victory Zeds” on the invaders vehicles saying “Russians didn’t want them back so we put them here!”.

    History doesn’t unfold so dramatically that a Putin victory will immediately change Europe. Things are going to change. The US-created pandemic was enough warning to all corners of the globe that our empire is a dangerous entity . . .

    1. You are right. I’m trying to get a direction for the reaction. Getting the rate of reaction is an entirely different task. Is the equilibrium a EurAsian, EastAsia, or perhaps a NorthAsia (Russia, China), SouthAsia (India and allies)? In any event, the US ends up at best as an element or dominant power of Oceania.

    2. Things might change rapidly. That happens also, sometimes, as in Afghanistan or the final phase of Mao’s victory in China. Consider the effect of a severe food/fuel shortage in the US, as enforced by inflation. Consider the effect on rate constant if the US establishment visibly subverted the next two US national elections and continued to try instigating a race pogrom in the US through grade school Critical Race Theory indoctrination, or if there should be a nuclear exchange that is visibly caused by US ineptness. Or if the German population reacts to their government’s slogan “Freeze for Freedom” as it would like to.

    3. Things might remain stable for some time, if the Russian Federation is simply given a new Iron Curtain (this time imposed from the West) and enough time to stabilize itself.

    Elvira Nabiullina heads the Russian Central Bank. She was primarily trained in Russia but in 2007 she was selected in the Yale (Skull & Bones) “World Fellows Program.” See Paul Craig Roberts’ critique and his damning accusation that she is a “Atlanticist” aka Jewtard. 

    Yi Gang heads the People’s Bank of China and studied at Beijing University, Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota and obtained his Ph.D in Economics from the University of Illinois.

    When Russia (then USSR) put missiles in Cuba, the US seriously threatened WWIII if the missiles weren’t removed — and (unlike Ukraine’s & Russia’s common border) Cuba doesn’t even share a border with the US.

    This analysis is really bad, objectively factually inaccurate, and has far too much certainty about facts we don’t know and might never about the Ukraine conflict.
    He exaggerates Russian military capability with hyperbole to fearmonger about their military might, without actually engaging with the on-the-ground evidence pointing to them facing serious logistical and capability issues and high losses.

    Here are a number of the most egregious errors in Johnson’s analysis:

    1: We don’t know if all Ukrainian ground intercept capabilities have been destroyed. That hasn’t been determined. Moreover, there’s evidence suggesting otherwise from Ukrainian pilots interviewed who talk about flying low-level air-to-air intercept missions.

    2: Russia has NOT established a no-fly-zone. There is ample footage of Ukrainian Bayraktar TB-2 drones (which theoretically shouldn’t be able to operate in hostile airspace) striking Russian convoys and footage of Ukrainian fighter jets.

    [MORE]

    3: Russian combat air operations have been oddly limited. A lot of experts from a variety of sources (RUSI, WarOnTheRocks, etc) have commented on Russia’s seeming inability to conduct complex air operations and establish air dominance. There is continuous documentation of mounting Russian combat air losses. There is video footage of their helicopters having to fire unguided missiles at a vertical angle so that they can stay outside the range of remaining Ukrainian air defenses. Russian air force has issues to say the least.

    4: Russia has NOT arrived in Kyiv. The city is far from taken. There is a Ukrainian counteroffensive ongoing that is pushing Russian forces out of towns to the west of the capital.
    The Nazis took 7 weeks to get to Kyiv because their troops were in fact several hundred miles farther away from the capital than Russian forces had to travel from Belarus. Sloppy, sloppy history to fearmonger about Russia’s armed forces.

    5: It is unclear whether Ukraine’s ability to launch significant military operations has been “eliminated.” Johnson is exaggerating beyond what the evidence shows. This is very much still up in the air with the counteroffensive going on near Kyiv. In fact, Ukrainian troops also just captured an advanced Russian command and control module for their Krasukha-4 mobile electronic warfare system.

    6: Russian military columns HAVE been facing losses and destruction, and HAVE been bogged down. There are many, many videos showing Russian vehicles abandoned in the mud, or being struck by drones or rocket attacks. No, it’s not a coordinated all-at-once massive offensive; it’s more like an asymmetric insurgency that capitalizes on the advantages of the defenders while inflicting significant costs on Russia. There are other analysts suggesting that Russian vehicle tires aren’t properly maintained or rely on subpar Chinese tires, explaining the slowdown.

    7: Yavoriv and Zhytomyr are NOT anything close to de-facto NATO bases. That would be a major escalation that Putin (so far) has not been willing to cross. Conducting NATO training at a foreign military base does not make that base a “de-facto” NATO base at all.
    Johnson’s ignorance of NATO structure is evident here. Ukraine is not just “described as a NATO partner,” but a member of NATO’s enhanced opportunity partner, NATO’s highest level of partnership available. Doesn’t get them access to NATO’s Article V, but it is of significance. That information is a google search away.

    8: Neither air base was completely destroyed – this is inaccurate hyperbole.
    Neither air base was known or confirmed to be struck with Russia’s Khinzal hypersonic air-launched cruise missile. The bases were struck with 30+ supersonic cruise missiles, likely the Iskander-M or Khalibr varieties.
    THere is moreover no evidence suggesting American or British intelligence personnel were killed either.

    9: The media is not running a propaganda campaign to make Ukrainians think they can win. Most of the evidence putting some serious doubt in Russia’s military and logistical capabilities are open-source videos from on the ground posted on Twitter, Reddit, etc etc.
    There’s a legitimate question to be asked on whether Russia can actually come out of the war having achieved any of its strategic objectives.

    10: “Sanctions ineffective” – Important to note that there are reports that Russia’s domestic armored vehicle/tank factories have had to shut down production due to lack of essential parts. Johnson underestimates the interdependency of the global economy, even for a country like Russia.

    11: Johnson gives far too much credit and sloppily handles claims about US-funded “biolabs” and Neo-Nazis in Ukraine. Both of these claims are being used by Russian state propaganda which makes Johnson’s extremely poor handling of these ideas remarkably irresponsible.
    “Biolabs” is a scary sounding term that Johnson throws out that just means biological research. We don’t know what is actually being researched there. It could be a flu vaccine.
    Neo-Nazis is a nuanced issue that Russia, and Johnson both seem to exaggerate. The Azov Brigades are fighting against Russia and in some cases providing social services for damaged areas.

    12: Johnson’s explanation of this conflict as a reasonable response to NATO provocation is very off. NATO has been on Russia’s borders since 2004 (Baltic states). This isn’t a war of defense on Russia’s part. This is a war of opportunity and aggression driven by a revisionist desire for a new Soviet empire and Iron Curtain. There are a couple of excellent analyses from CSIS to that effect.

    Referring to NATO:

    This ridiculous cliché, straight from the Russian propaganda mill, is densely packed with four misrepresentations. You need to do some research on historical developments during the past few decades, and their associated causalities, instead of repeating such misleading nonsense.

    NATO did not “advance“, in an offensive sense; there are no “fronts” in terms of military lines of contact with Russian forces; nor, if they existed, could they be “multiple“, because they would be confined to Estonia and Latvia, along a relatively short stretch of land that is essentially demilitarized; and that organization never made any “promises” not to welcome countries that wanted to join their alliance in the future.

    TRT is not, their commenter posed very direct questions of the USA and NATO role in starting this conflict (which is not denied either). The US guy responded to it that they did not bomb Cuba or Venezuela though they are deeply in the opposite camp, and they did not bomb them as Russia does to Ukraine. If you have been lately in Cuba, you have seen what the country is like and can decide whether you want to live there.

    Though these news agencies are Western and their journalists can be expected to follow the scripts, the refugees and interviewed people are simply Ukrainians and you could listen what they have to say about their house having been bombed by Russia. They did not escape to Russia, most went to Poland. Try to figure out why. When there are over 2 million refugees, many from Charkov and other Russian speaking districts, would you not expect that they denounce the UkriNazis instead of blaming Putin, but they blame Putin. There was one man from Odessa, who preferred Russians and said he would not fight, but at that time an attack to Odessa was still a remote possibility and now they would fight. By the Ukrainian spirit being high what is meant is that the country is basically all united against Russia. So, who is saving whom?

    If you speak Polish and buy a card to the payable channel TVN24 in Hotbird, you can follow daily the military analysis of the war by Gen. Waldemar Skrypczak, the former commander of the Polish Ground Forces. He does not reveal Ukrainian army positions as that is a secret, but his analysis is quite good and it is not any “follow the script” story but an analysis of a professional soldier. Russia troops advance only 2-3 km per day in Donesk, Kyiv Russians cannot reach anymore. Ukrainian resistance is good. The outcome of the war is yet to be seen. But apart of the outcome of this war, it is quite clear that Russia has lost on other arenas and this attack on Ukraine was a mistake by Mr. Putin.

    It is the implied threat of what happens when a military alliance “expands”. Also wars are not fought like they were in 1950. Both offensive and defensive missiles can and have been put closer and closer to Russia. That means they can both hit Russia and monitor Russia. Which speak of that – tell us why Trump pulled out of the Open Skies…. Is that not a provocation in itself?

    It’s the same issue why Russia and China were upset at South Korea for allowing THAAD. Of course the claim was it was against North Korea. But both countries correctly pointed out that was foolishness because the close proximity and characteristics of THAAD would make it ineffective defending against any attack of North on South Korea. It is about being able to monitor not just North Korean but Chinese and Russian missile systems to really defend against launches on US bases further afield. So it decreases Russian and Chinese strategic deterrence since neither have similar systems close to the US Mainland (though both prob still have electronic monitoring in Cuba).

    So for adults to wonder why neighbors will feel aggrieved by their actions – it makes me wonder if they don’t live within 50 miles of anyone. But even geopolitically – you can ask even a bricklayer or cab driver in Venezuela- and they could understand that if Venezuela hosted Russian weapons and monitoring systems why it would upset the US – even if they don’t know the ranges of missiles and radar systems

    This is what Neoconservatism amounts to.

    And it doesn’t amount to much. Not anymore it doesn’t.

    But, it has to be said, that with or without Jewish Supremacy Inc. the West has been in a period of Explanatory Collapse for the last 200+ years. JSI merely exploited what is a essentially a large-scale culture crisis.

    That’s why many here in the comment section of TUR (the best anywhere in the history of the Internet, website and comment section) who attribute virtually all of the West’s problems in general and whites in particular to JSI grasp the situation while totally missing the point. In any event, speaking of JSI and whites, there’s this from the article.

    If anything, this is uniting the Russian people behind Putin and they are ready to dig in for a long struggle.

    Since JSI is doing to whites with their domestic policy what they are doing to Russians with their foreign policy, this is what should be happening with whites. They should be united and ready to dig in for a long struggle.

    But, of course, that’s not happening. And it’s exactly because it’s not happening that whites don’t have much of a future until they do unite and dig in for as long as it takes. But they can’t do that if even some of the best of them continue to brag about grasping the situation while totally missing the point.

    “Professor John Mearsheimer Explains Who Is Responsible for the Ukraine-Russia Crisis
    By Vasko Kohlmayer

    March 24, 2022

    Professor John Mearsheimer is one of the most accomplished and distinguished political scientists in the world. A leading authority in the field of international relations, he has authored several seminal books and lectured extensively around the globe (see his website here).

    [MORE]

    Prof. Mearsheimer came to wider public consciousness through his 2015 lecture in which he discussed the origin and causes of the brewing Russo-Ukrainian conflict. The presentation is a true tour de force and has posted more than 22 million views to date. In that lecture Prof. Mearsheimer not only offered a superb analysis of the situation, but he also made a prediction that is being fulfilled right before our eyes. This is what he said more than six years ago:

    “The West is leading Ukraine down the primrose path, and the end result is that Ukraine is going to be wrecked.”

    You can watch this now famous 2015 lecture here.

    On February 15, 2022 – just nine days before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine – Professor Mearsheimer gave a Zoom talk about the intensifying crisis to students at King’s College in Cambridge. In less than 25 minutes, he provided a superb assessment of the fragile situation that barely a week later erupted into open war. If you wish to truly understand why this conflict arose and who is responsible, this is the best short explanation you can find. The clarity of Prof. Mearsheimer’s presentation is second to none.

    For those who prefer reading, below is a slightly edited transcript of Professor Mearsheimer’s talk.

    ***

    Prof. Mearsheimer: Let me do two things. First let me talk about the origins and the history of this crisis. Then I will talk about why it is on the front burner today. Finally, I will say a few words in conclusion about where we are headed.

    The conventional wisdom in the West is that Putin is responsible for this crisis. Most people think it is the Russians that are the guilty party here. There are good guys and bad guys in this, and, of course, we are the good guys, while the Russians are the bad guys.

    This thinking is simply wrong.

    It is the United States – and to some degree its allies – that are responsible for this crisis.

    Why do I say that?

    It’s very important to grasp what the West has been trying to do since 2008. It was to turn Ukraine into a western bulwark on Russia’s border. That policy had three dimensions to it: first and most important is NATO expansion. The idea was that we were going to expand NATO eastward to include Ukraine.

    The second element of the strategy was EU [European Union] expansion. In other words, it was not just NATO expansion that was going to go forward and include Ukraine; it was also EU.

    The third element of this strategy was the colour revolution, and in the case of Ukraine that was the Orange Revolution. The idea behind it was to turn Ukraine into a liberal democracy like Britain or the United States. Furthermore, it was supposed to be a liberal democracy that was aligned with the United States, because this is all part and parcel of that strategy that is designed to make Ukraine a western bulwark on Russia’s border.

    As I already said, the most important element of the strategy was NATO expansion, which is why the April 2008 Bucharest NATO summit is of immense importance. At the end of that summit, NATO announced that Georgia and Ukraine would become part of the alliance.

    The Russians, however, made it unequivocally clear that that was not going to happen. In other words, they drew a line in the sand. As you may know, there were two big tranches of NATO expansion before that 2008 meeting. The first tranche was processed in 1999 and included Poland Hungary and the Czech Republic. The second tranche came in 2004 and included countries like Romania, the Baltic States and so on.

    The Russians swallowed those two NATO expansions. They intensely disliked both, but they swallowed them. But when NATO said in 2008 that further expansion would now include Georgia and Ukraine, the Russians said “no.” The Russians said this was not going to happen.

    It is no accident that in August of 2008, a few months after the April 2008 Bucharest summit, a war broke out between Russia and Georgia. Remember that Georgia was the other country besides Ukraine that was going to be brought into NATO. The Russians, however, said “that ain’t happening,” and we had a war in August 2008 because of that.

    Then on the 22nd February of 2014, a crisis broke out over Ukraine. This was mainly precipitated by a coup in Ukraine that overthrew a pro-Russian leader and installed a pro-American leader. The United States was involved in that coup. Seeing this, the Russians unsurprisingly went ballistic, and they did two things in response: first is they took Crimea from Ukraine. If you want to know why, you need to understand that there is a very important naval base called Sevastopol in Crimea. There was simply no way the Russians were going to let Sevastopol become a NATO naval base, which was the principal reason why they took Crimea.

    The second thing the Russians did was to take advantage of a civil war that broke out in eastern Ukraine almost immediately after the February 2014 crisis. The Russians fuelled that civil war, and they have made sure that their allies, who were mainly Russian speakers in eastern Ukraine, were not defeated by the Ukrainian government. What the Russians were basically saying is this: “We will wreck Ukraine before we allow Ukraine to become a member of NATO.”

    It is very important for our understanding of the situation to realize that the 2014 crisis was Russia’s response to what had happened at the Bucharest NATO summit in 2008.

    The Russian response, then, was twofold: number one, they took Crimea. You should understand that Crimea is gone; it is never going back to Ukraine. And number two, they implicitly said that they would destroy Ukraine before they would let it enter NATO.

    Now the question you want to ask yourself is this: Why do people in the West, especially in places like Britain and the United States, not understand that what the Russians are doing is simply real politic 101. This just boggles my mind.

    After all, the notion that you could take a military alliance run by the United States – the most powerful country in the world – and bring it up to Russia’s borders and think that the Russians wouldn’t be bothered by it is simply naive.

    We in the United States have the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine says that no distant great power is allowed to form a military alliance with a country in the Western Hemisphere.

    I remember the Cuban missile crisis very well. What happened there was that the Soviets put nuclear tipped missiles in Cuba. The United States said that this was categorically unacceptable, because military forces from afar are not allowed in the Western Hemisphere. And because of that we got the Cuban missile crisis with the end result that those missiles were removed.

    When the Soviets were later talking about building a naval base at Cienfuegos, the United States told them in no uncertain terms that they were not going to build a naval base there. This was just not going to happen, because the United States views the Western Hemisphere as its backyard, and it prohibits distant great powers from coming into its backyard.

    Don’t you think, then, that the Russians would be deeply disturbed when the United States tried to turn Ukraine into a NATO bulwark right on its borders? Of course, they are going to be upset. The Russians told us that immediately after the Bucharest summit. They made it categorically clear that Ukraine is not going to become part of NATO.

    But the Americans and their allies did not listen, because we believe that we are the good guys. Here in the United States, we think we are a benign hegemon, and that and we can do pretty much anything we want in the world. For a while, it looked like we could get away with that. As I said, the Russians accepted the first NATO expansion in 1999 then another expansion in 2004.

    After the Bucharest summit in 2008, however, the Russians said Ukraine and Georgia were not going to go into NATO. As a result, we had a major crisis breaking out in February 2014. The crisis tamped down quite a bit after 2014, but in the fall of last year it began to ramp up. And now, in early 2022, it became a full-blown crisis and we want to understand why and how it happened.

    So, the question is this: Why has this crisis moved from the back burner to the front burner?

    It happened because the United States and its allies were turning Ukraine into a de facto member of NATO. Today you hear lot of rhetoric that the Russians really had nothing to worry about, because nobody is talking about making Ukraine a member of NATO. That’s technically true, but if you look carefully at what we were actually doing, it is a different story. First of all, going back to the Trump administration and continuing into the Biden administration, we were arming Ukraine.

    We were not arming Ukrainians during the Obama administration in February 2014 when the crisis broke out. We were not arming them in the first few years after that crisis when the Obama administration was in power. We refused to arm the Ukrainians because we knew it would enrage the Russians.

    It would have scared the Russians, because you must understand that the Russians view Ukraine becoming a part of NATO as an existential threat. This is what’s going on here: the Russians are sending a very clear message to the West. They are telling us that they take this threat seriously and are willing to use military force if necessary to eliminate it. The Russians are not fooling around here.

    What you had happening in 2021 – and, of course, it started before under the Trump administration – is we were arming the Ukrainians. And when you arm Ukrainians, you also arm those Ukrainian forces that fight against Russia’s allies in eastern Ukraine.

    One thing that really spooked the Russians was that the Turks gave the Ukrainians drones and drones have become a very effective weapon on the battlefield, as the Azerbaijanis proved against the Armenians last year. The Azerbaijanis were using Turkish drones. The Turks were giving the Ukrainians drones, and the Americans and the British were giving them all sorts of other weapons.

    We define those weapons as defensive weapons, but there is, of course, no meaningful distinction between defensive weapons and offensive weapons. What looks defensive to us looks offensive to them. If you are training the Ukrainian forces the way the British and the Americans have done, don’t you think the Russians are going to see that as a threat? I can guarantee you they will, and they are right.

    What has been happening is that we have been arming and training the Ukrainians. And if you look at how we have been dealing with Ukraine diplomatically, you will see that we were basically treating it as if it were an ally or a partner. It looked, then, as – diplomatically and militarily – the bonds between the West, especially the United States and Ukraine were tightening.

    At the same time, we were doing a number of provocative things outside of Ukraine that bothered the Russians enormously. The British foolishly ran a destroyer through Russian territorial waters in the Black Sea this past summer. The Americans took a bomber and drove it right up against the Russian coastline in the Black Sea. It is no surprise that the Russians were really disturbed by this.

    From all this, the Russians had a very powerful sense that NATO was moving eastward. They felt that NATO was moving right up to the Russian border, mainly by turning Ukraine into a de facto member of the alliance. Add to this the provocative measures with the British destroyer and the American bomber, and for the Russians things reached what their foreign minister Sergei Lavrov described as “the boiling point.” They had it, and they were no longer interested in negotiating anymore. They wanted to alter the status quo, and the end result is that we have this massive military build-up, which is doing enormous damage to the Ukrainian economy that was already a basket case before. The Ukraine situation is getting worse and worse; the Russians have sent a very clear signal to us that if the West upped the ante, they will also up the ante and Ukraine is not going to become part of NATO.

    So, this is where we are today. We have this major crisis on our hands which really goes back to April 2008. That was when the decision to make Ukraine part of NATO was taken. Then we had a crisis breakout in February 2014 [the American led Orange Revolution], which was overtime ameliorated somewhat and pushed to the backburner. Now it has suddenly broken out again.

    It there any hope we can settle this crisis?

    I’ll tell you what I think the best solution is. I think it is an obvious solution, but one that is politically unacceptable at this point in time. The obvious solution is to turn Ukraine into a neutral state, more or less a buffer between Russia on one side and NATO on the other. This is effectively what we had up until February 2014.

    Ukraine got its independence when the Soviet Union broke apart in December 1991, and from December 1991 until roughly early 2014 there was no real problem with Ukraine. The United States and its allies were not fighting with the Russians over Ukraine. There was a verbal dispute going back to the April 2008 Bucharest summit, but there was no crisis because from 1991 until 2013 Ukraine was effectively a neutral state. It was a buffer.

    It was NATO that changed this situation. We now have this rhetoric to make the Russians look like the bad guys. You hear all this talk that Russia is bent on creating the second coming of the Soviet Union and that it is bent on creating a greater Russia. That the Russians are the bad guys is a story that was invented after February 22nd, 2014. Nobody was making this argument before that. And neither was anybody arguing that we had to expand NATO to contain Russia before that time.

    In February 2014 this cockamamie strategy that we had invented to make Ukraine a part of NATO blew up in our face. When it blew up because of our flawed policies, we were not going to admit that we had screwed up. No, we had to blame the Russians, so we said they were bent all along on dominating Eastern Europe.

    You hear this same argument made today. They say, it is the Russians who are the bad guys; Putin is really dangerous and we can’t negotiate with him. This implies that this situation is the equivalent of Munich, which is another way of saying that Putin is the second coming of Adolf Hitler, and making a deal on Ukraine would be like making the deal on Czechoslovakia in October 1938.

    This is all pure unadulterated nonsense. There was no threat from Russia before February 2014. We just invented that story. Anyway, the ideal situation would be to create a neutral Ukraine. We could have a Ukraine that looks a lot like the Ukraine that existed between 1991 and 2014.

    We, however, cannot do that because, in large part, the Americans are unwilling to make any sorts of concessions regarding NATO expansion. Furthermore, to make neutrality work, to create a stable neutral Ukraine, it is very important that the Ukrainian government in Kiev reach some sort of modus vivendi with the Russian speaking population in Donbass. This is the famous Minsk agreement. It is imperative that the Kiev government implement the Minsk accords so that the civil war – and it is effectively a civil war – between the people in Donbass and the people in western Ukraine be settled. But the politics inside of Ukraine make this impossible at this time.

    It is also impossible to envision President Biden saying that he is going to give up on NATO expansion. The end result is that this crisis will be going to go on and on. That is the sad truth, in my humble opinion.

    Question: Does the UK play any role of importance in this crisis? What about the European Union and the United Nations?

    Prof. Mearsheimer: Let’s talk about the UK. This would also apply to any major European country including Germany and France. The Russians don’t want to negotiate with the Germans, they don’t want to negotiate with the French, and they don’t want to negotiate with the British.

    They understand full well that it is the United States that runs the show and that the British will do what the United States asks them to do. You can have perfunctory conversations with the British, but it really doesn’t matter. The Russians really want to talk to the United States. They don’t even want to talk to NATO. The Russians want talk to the United States, because they know that the Europeans basically do what the Americans tell them to. That the British will do Americans’ bidding is almost axiomatic. The Germans and the French sometimes resist, as we know from the Iraq war in 2003, but Tony Blair was a mere cheerleader for the United States in that war. Britain does not have much of a role to play here. The United States is the key player. I don’t say that because I’m an American and, indeed, I think American policy is usually so foolish these days that it would be better if the United States had less influence.

    It would be better if Europeans, especially the Germans and the French, stood up to the Americans. With regard to the EU, it is very important to understand that it is not just NATO expansion that is designed to make Ukraine a western bulwark on Russia’s borders. It is NATO expansion, EU expansion and the colour revolution. The Orange Revolution was the movement to “democratise” Ukraine. On the point of democratisation, the Russians fear that what we try to have is a colour revolution in Russia itself. If you go to Beijing or Moscow, you learn that in both places the leadership lives in fear that the United States will try to foster a colour revolution inside China or Russia.

    Democratisation, EU expansion and NATO expansion are the three elements of the strategy although NATO expansion is the key. The EU and NATO are not much of a player here. It is the United States that is driving this train. Let me make one more point before I talk about the UN. It is very important to understand that at the April 2008 Bucharest summit, Germany and France were adamantly opposed to any movement to make Ukraine a member of NATO. Germany – and here were talking about Angela Merkel, much to her credit – understood that this was asking for serious trouble. But it was the Americans who as always prevailed and at the end of the Bucharest summit a statement was issued at American insistence that said that Ukraine and Georgia would become members of NATO. The Europeans – the Germans and the French – understood that this was a foolish thing to do, but they failed to stand up to the Americans, as is so often the case.

    As far as the UN goes, it is effectively useless for one very simple reason: the Russians have a veto right in any dispute between countries that have a vote on the Security Council. This obviously includes both Russia and the United States. The UN is not going to be very meaningful simply because the Russians can veto anything that they do not like and so can Americans. The bottom line is that this problem has to be solved by the United States and the Russians.”

    Probably a kit of pathogens in a partnership program. What is developed are ways to respond to bioattacks, like detectors, protection etc. As Ukraine is a partner in these programs, they should have this kit. It has nothing to do with developing bioweapons, which is forbidden by international agreements, but there are the pathogens and they should be destroyed if the site is in danger of being occupied by the enemy.

    Ucrainean army retook some areas in Kyiv and other places.

    After invading USSR in June 1941 Germany offered through Swiss intermediaries many peace overtures to the UK – all rejected. More people died in the last 6 months of WW2 than in the previous 66 months of war………

    The West/NATO/USA is totally untrustworthy and has revoked every agreement and treaty – the USA is intent on the destruction of Russia and control over its resources and economy as under Yeltsin. Russia would get the same deal as Serbia at Rambouillet
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rambouillet_Agreement
    The accords called for 30,000 NATO peacekeeping troops in Kosovo; an unhindered right of passage for NATO troops on Yugoslav territory; and immunity for NATO and its agents to Yugoslav law. Yugoslavia’s refusal to sign the accords was used by NATO to justify the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia.

    This is WAR waged by the USA and its vassals who are all afraid to fight so use Ukraine as a cat’s paw. They do not intend anything other than a ceasefire followed by more war.

    As long as the USA exists it is an existential threat to Russia, China, Iran inter alia. The world cannot co-exist with US-UK as Imperialist Powers creating chaos on every continent and instability as policy.

    “their freedom seized”

    — Yes, in 2014, the freedom was seized by the thuggish Nuland-Kagan in concert with the self-proclaimed Nazi (Banderite) thugs and a few Mossad snipers.

    Ukraine has been under the ZUSA boot for eight years. People were voting with their feet by escaping the most corrupt and most impoverished state in Europe, courtesy of Jewish oligarchs in Ukraine and Bidens et al in the US.

    Judea Declared War on Russia and the Semite-led Banderites volunteered to become cannon fodder for Judea. The ordinary Ukrainians were used to being squeezed of their resources and experimented on. The US has founded dozens of bio-labs searching for ethnicity-specific pathogens. Ukrainians were not allowed to discuss these labs. People were infected (some died) by the American pathogens in Ukraine and Georgia, and, perhaps, in Kazakhstan. https://dilyana.bg/the-pentagon-bio-weapons/

    Besides the military experiments at the Lugar Center in Georgia, Battelle has already produced bioterrorism agents at the Biosafety Level 4 NBACC Top Secret Laboratory at Fort Detrick in the US. …

    Ukraine has no control over the military bio-laboratories on its own territory. According to the 2005 Agreement between the US DoD and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine the Ukrainian government is prohibited from public disclosure of sensitive information about the US program and Ukraine is obliged to transfer to the US Department of Defense (DoD) dangerous pathogens for biological research.

    The Pentagon has been granted access to certain state secrets of Ukraine in connection with the projects under their agreement. One of the Pentagon laboratories is located in Kharkiv, where in January 2016 at least 20 Ukrainian soldiers died from Flu-like virus in just two days with 200 more being hospitalized. The Ukrainian government did not report on the dead Ukrainian soldiers in Kharkiv. As of March 2016, 364 deaths have been reported across Ukraine (81.3 % caused by Swine Flu A (H1N1) pdm09 – the same strain which caused the world pandemic in 2009).

    29 cases of Hepatitis A were reported in Kharkiv in November 2017. The virus was isolated in contaminated drinking water. One of the Pentagon bio-labs is located in Kharkiv which was blamed for the deadly Flu outbreak a year ago which claimed the lives of 364 Ukrainians.

    In 2011 Ukraine was hit by a cholera outbreak. 33 patients were reportedly hospitalized for severe diarrhea. A second outbreak struck the country in 2014 when more than 800 people all across Ukraine were reported to have contracted the disease. In 2015 at least 100 new cases were registered in the city of Mykolaiv alone.

    What freedom had Nuland-Kagan brought to Ukraine? Y0 to become a slave to a Jewish Banking cartel? Cannon fodder for the war profiteers, the MIC? A place to rob blind by Hunter Biden and the likes?

Now we have the opportunity to advance towards Slavyansk,” military expert Alexey Leonkov told the newspaper Vzglyad, commenting on the statement of the Russian Defence Ministry about the capture of the city of Izyum in the Kharkov region.

    “Izyum played an extremely important role. Ammunition supply, replenishment of personnel, evacuation of the wounded passed through it. It was a key city in all respects in this direction. Well, of course, the AFU fought for it as best they could, tried to hold it with all their might, but failed,” Leonkov explained.

    The interlocutor also suggested that following the capture of Izyum and the defeat of the troops in Kamenka, which is located south of Izyum, the troops of the Russian Armed Forces will move towards Slavyansk – with the aim of further encircling enemy groups.
    “In addition, our military work individually for each locality, since there are civilians in cities and towns. Therefore, when we liberate a particular locality, we try to save their lives as much as possible. And therefore, the operation is proceeding at the appropriate pace,” he stressed.

    As for tactics in this combat area, Leonkov notes the following: “Now the Allied forces are advancing both from the southern side – from Ugledar, and from the northern side from Izyum. This is what will allow us to surround large enemy groups in the areas of the Donbass.”

    Earlier the Defence Ministry said that Russian troops had taken control of Izyum in the Kharkov region. During the operation in Izyum, the Russian military also captured several leaders of the Ukrainian nationalists.

    Recall that Russia launched a military special operation in Ukraine on February 24. Russian Leader Vladimir Putin noted that Moscow’s plans do not include the occupation of the territories of Ukraine, the goal is the denazification and demilitarisation of the country.

    Also, a number of political conditions will be put forward to the Kiev authorities – the legislative consolidation of the non-aligned status of Ukraine with a complete ban on the deployment of NATO military bases and strike weapons systems on its territory, the trial of Nazi criminals who have committed crimes against citizens of Ukraine and Donbass in recent years, the recognition of Crimea as Russian, and the DPR and LPR as indmependent states.

    We know the Jew lobby runs Washington & Ukraine — AND the (((“mainstream” media))), cynically fomenting anti-Russian belligerence while banning the Russian side of the story entirely.

    Meanwhile Israel welcomes the “Russian” (((oligarchs))) fleeing with their ill-gotten \$\$\$ billions \$\$\$ & their fuck-you-goyim-mega-yachts.

    Mearsheimer’s views are well known. He supports the “law of the jungle” and is an apologist for Russian bullying or coercion, so as to create some grand sphere of influence that he believes it is entitled to – of course at the cost of its neighbors. He repeats the cliché of a “coup” in Kiev, in February 2014, and claims US involvement, of course without any specific evidence. This explains why he had appeared on RT shows prior to Russia’s war of aggression, to manifest a warped framework of public perception. Not surprisingly, he has come under strong criticism at his university. He might as well be on the Russian payroll to supplement his income. For Vlad-cultists who like to appeal to academic authority, without thinking critically, this is the man that gets recommended most.

They know that not only will it block the energy that Germany and Italy and other countries in Europe need through their oil and gas, but also it’ll block the use of gas for fertiliser, upping their fertiliser production and decreasing their food production. They look at this and they say, How can America gain from all of this? There’s always a way of gaining what something looks to be bad.

    It is not necessary for him to endorse it. Practical acquiescence or submission effectively amounts to tacit support. His attitude is a kind of predictive programming that signals a green light and serves as a reinforcement. If that sentiment prevails and becomes universally accepted, the result would be a degeneration to the eventual “law of the jungle” everywhere. He helps precipitate such a situations by essentially saying “that’s the way it is“, which I think is an irresponsible position to spread. Most of his other colleagues do not agree, which is why he – not they – got invited to appear on RT.

    Kadyrov announced the liberation of the Left-bank district of Mariupol

    Text: Anton Nikitin

    [MORE]

    The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, announced the liberation of the Left-Bank district of Mariupol, located in the eastern part of the city, where more than 100,000 people live.

    “Our fighters have cleared the entire Left-Bank district of Mariupol from gangs, located in the eastern part of the city and separated from the rest by the Azovstal industrial zone. Fighters hoisted a flag over the last building of the district prosecutor’s office of the Left Bank district vacated here, my dear brother Sultan Rashayev informed me. Thus, the guards completely cleaned up residential areas in the eastern part of the city, where more than 100,000 people live. The last remaining remnants of the bandit group, previously operating in the Left-Bank area, suffered losses and disappeared in the direction of the west. Now the Guards are throwing their forces at cleaning Azov nationalists out of the other residential areas of Mariupol,” Kadyrov said in his Telegram channel.

    Earlier, Kadyrov announced the liberation of the Mariupol administration building.

    On Thursday, the head of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Denis Pushilin visited the humanitarian aid centre in Mariupol, organised by the United Russia party, and promised to restore the city together with Russia after liberation from the Ukrainian army. In turn, the secretary of the General Council of United Russia and the first vice-speaker of the Federation Council Andrei Turchak said that Russia will fully restore Mariupol after the end of the special operation.

    Last Sunday, the Defence Ministry accused Ukrainian nationalists of mass terror in Mariupol. War correspondent Semyon Pegov compared the outskirts of Mariupol with Aleppo in Syria. The Russian Defence Ministry called on Ukrainian nationalists and foreign mercenaries to lay down their arms and leave Mariupol for Kiev-controlled areas. However, the proposal was rejected in Kiev. The Russian Defence Ministry reported that neo-Nazis in Ukraine are holding more than 4.5 million people as human shields, including citizens of 18 countries.

    On Sunday, the governor of Sevastopol Mikhail Razvozzhaev reported that in the battles for Mariupol during a special operation in Ukraine, the deputy commander of the Black Sea Fleet (Black Sea Fleet), captain of the 1st rank Andrei Paly, was killed. According to media reports, Paliy ensured the functioning of a humanitarian corridor for the exit of civilians.

    A day earlier, a resident of Mariupol told about how nationalists gather those ready to evacuate and shoot them, and turned the city and its residents into a landfill. On March 18, Kiev confirmed the inability of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to unblock Mariupol. The head of the National Defence Control Centre of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, said that Kiev officials understand the impossibility of providing assistance to nationalists blocked in Mariupol and call on them to sacrifice themselves. The Defence Ministry expressed readiness to guarantee the lives of Ukrainian nationalists who have laid down their weapons, as well as to open humanitarian corridors and release them from Mariupol.

    Perhaps, though during Covid I also noticed an inability to tolerate contrasting messages. With regard to Ukraine a certain shrillness may mask an inability to do very much. Erdoğan commenting on the NATO summit said they had nothing effective except sanctions (which Turkey has not joined). It is debatable how effective even the sanctions are and they have not stopped the Russians. Banning or restricting RT etc. might also belong to the category of trying to look impressive without much substance.

    No.

    If you say, “China has the 2nd largest economy in the world”, that doesn’t mean you think it’s a good thing or that you’re a supporter of China for saying it. It’s just a fact.

    Mearsheimer looks at it for what it is, even when “what-it-is” is ugly. The truth is sometimes very ugly indeed.

    Great powers, including the United States, do what is in their strategic interest. If it’s also the right thing to do, then that’s a good thing. If it’s not the right thing to do, then we should condemn it. Do you really think the foreign policy actions of the US are always moral?

    It doesn’t matter whether or not he appears on RT. What matters is whether or not he’s speaking the truth. You’re falling into the trap of believing that the good guys always tell the truth, and the bad guys always lie.

  469. @Noble47

    What matters is whether or not he’s speaking the truth.

    In the long piece quoted above, Mearsheimer was not speaking the truth about the transition of power in February 2014 in Kiev, which served as a premise in his presentation. I did not claim his acquiescent support for the “law of the jungle” was a lie. There is a difference, between characterizing certain illegal actions as that (“might makes right“) in a historical analysis, and what I referred to as “a kind of predictive programming” when referring to hypothetical events that have not occurred.

    If the default or prevailing position pertaining to assessing future scenarios becomes one in which leaders will shamelessly act illegally through the use of force because it serves their interest, instead of resolving differences diplomatically, then this amounts to tacit support. It seems that his attitude on the Ukrainian issue has not been one of condemning illegal actions. He is thus essentially giving illegality, such as bullying through threats and aggression, a “green light” under the euphemism of “realism“.

    The hypocrisy among commentators here arises when such aggressive conduct is condemned if the United States has engaged in it, but is welcomed when Russia indulges in it.

    Well, it certainly isn’t the business of Russia to interfere.

    “And NATO are purely hypocrites because they recognize Kosovo. You can’t get more hypocritical than that.”

    Red herring.

    “it was Boris Yeltsin who allowed Russia to get looted… Part of why Putin was so popular was because he stopped the hollowing out of the nation.”

    Putin aligning himself to oligarchs for mammon. Pay close attention.

    https://theconversation.com/meet-russias-oligarchs-a-group-of-men-who-wont-be-toppling-putin-anytime-soon-178474

    Private suppliers in many sectors such as infrastructure, defense, and health care would overcharge the government at prices many times the market rate, offering kickbacks to the state officials involved. Thus, Putin enriched a new legion of oligarchs who owed their enormous fortunes to him…

    Today, three types of oligarchs stand out in terms of their proximity to power. First come Putin’s friends, who are personally connected to the president. Many of Putin’s close friends – particularly those from his St. Petersburg and KGB days – have experienced a meteoric rise to extreme wealth. A few of Putin’s closest oligarch friends from St. Petersburg are Yuri Kovalchuk, often referred to as Putin’s “personal banker”; Gennady Timchenko, whose key asset is the energy trading firm Gunvor; and the brothers Arkady and Boris Rotenberg, who own assets in construction, electricity and pipelines. All of these individuals have been sanctioned.

    The second group includes leaders of Russia’s security services, the police and the military – known as “siloviki” – who have also leveraged their networks to amass extreme personal wealth. Some of these so-called “silovarchs” are former KGB, and now FSB, intelligence officers who had eyed the Yeltsin-era oligarchs’ power and wealth jealously and obtained both under Putin. The man reputed to be the informal leader of the siloviki is Igor Sechin, chairman of oil giant Rosneft, widely seen as the second-most powerful person in Russia.

    Finally, the largest number of Russian oligarchs are outsiders without personal connections to Putin, the military or the FSB. Indeed, some current outsiders are the 1990s-era oligarchs. While Putin selectively crushed politically inconvenient or obstreperous oligarchs after coming to power, he did not seek to systematically “eliminate oligarchs as a class,” as he had promised during his initial election campaign. For example, oligarchs such as Vladimir Potanin and Oleg Deripaska, who accumulated their wealth in the 1990s, regularly feature in the lists of richest Russians today.

    “And for the record I don’t “support” Putin… ”

    You’re not fooling anyone here.

    “Putin isn’t the one doing it.”

    No, he’s just destabilizing a nation and putting his own country in harm’s way economically.

    “Neither is Putin telling me and the rest of the world I need to accept sinful and immoral behavior as normal.”

    Is bombing civilian targets NOT sinful and immoral? Is the disruption of the lives of Ukrainian boys and girls NOT sinful and immoral?

    Saddam did not have WMD. It was the US that has placed real WMD on the territory of Ukraine (and Georgia and Kazakhstan). Take your “righteous” pitch down. The reminder about Kosovo – and about the bombing of Belgrade for more than two months by the “defensive” NATO – is highly pertinent. By the way, the US presence was very effective at making Kosovo the center of organ trafficking and child prostitution. Mossad operative Jeff Epstein was certainly thankful to Bill Clinton (who ordered the bombings of Belgrade) for the availability of young Yugoslavian girls for his pedophile enterprise.

    Jeffrey Epstein ‘purchased Nadia Marcinkova as a girl from her family, shot child porn of her with underage teen and forced her into threesomes’
    Nada Marcinkova, who now goes by Nadia, was one of Epstein’s victims as well as an enabler according to interviews with victims back in 2005
    ‘Epstein had purchased her from her family in Yugoslavia. Epstein bragged he brought her into the United States to be his Yugoslavian sex slave,’ Detective Recarey said after speaking to that same victim.
    She was granted immunity as part of Epstein’s 2008 plea deal, despite never being identified as a person to criminally charge in the case.

    So are your much admired Russians really going to nuke all the toys of civilization just because they were not competent to steal them?

    And are all you kool-aid drinkers gonna make excuses for that (if you are still alive),
    or to your gods if you are not?

    This is becoming existential for the European race (and perhaps all the rest as well).
    If somebody doesn’t put Putin and his government down soon, then
    if the world wants to survive it is going to have to consider putting
    Russia itself down in a massive global pre-emptive nuclear strike.

    Sane people in Russia! Stop this madness now — before it kills the world!

    If Russia was holding military exercises with China 12 miles from the U.S. naval/sub bases on Coronado Island with Mexican connivance, or trying to put nukes in North Carolina pointed at D.C., would America be justified in taking military action after Russia refused for eight years to discuss these issues?

    Now do some dishonest spergery about how “North Carolina is a U.S. state” rather than addressing the question. It’s what you did with Pat’s question.

    Hardy-Har-Har: NotGod is obviously a Ukrainian sorehead, being led around by the ring in his nose by his Khazarian Mafiya controllers.

    Such a pity, sitting there in mama’s basement sipping down energy-drinks in order to post his barf and garbage (along with his Kool-Aide for a chaser) and sitting on his dung heap crowing away at a couple minor set-backs which even happen to militaries who sometimes lose tiny battles in the process of winning the war.

    Advice to the lovelorn: Let the Ha\$barfa and \$ayanim scum do all the trolling here. Some of them even display a modicum of professional Bernaysian propaganda. They are fun to find out and dutifully chastise.

    What part of Mearsheimer’s presentation of what happened in Ukraine on Feb 22, 2014 is false? I’m assuming you’re going to claim that what happened wasn’t a coup, correct? You’re on very shaky ground if that’s the case.

    Have you heard the phone call between Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland and US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt, posted on Youtube on Feb 4, 2014? It’s easy to find if you are not already familiar with it. After listening to it one would have to turn oneself inside out to conclude that they were talking about anything other than a coup. Of course they weren’t silly enough to use the word “coup” in their discussion, but it’s pretty clear to an objective observer that that was the topic of the conversation. What else could they possibly be discussing, given ALL the statements made during the discussion?

    Predictive programming? Please. Preparing policy alternatives that include those for “might-makes-right” actions by a foreign government is simply part of the job – but it’s not the only part of the job. Good diplomacy results in a win-win scenario, but this is also a best-case scenario – and certainly not a guaranteed outcome.

    Mearsheimer’s essential point is that great powers will make “might-makes-right” decisions when they believe their vital national interests are threatened. Feel free to present an example where this is demonstrably false.

    It seems that his attitude on the Ukrainian issue has not been one of condemning illegal actions.

    Mearsheimer makes clear that difficulties arise when rights or morali
