Amazing news over the week-end: President Lukashenko has declared that Biden gave the order to kill him in a coup organized by the CIA. Now, we all know that Lukashenko says all sorts of things, many of them false or plain silly. Except that the Russian FSB has confirmed it all! According to the Russians, a joint operation of the (Bielorussian) KGB and the Russian FSB has uncovered the plot early on and the Russians monitored the full operation until they had enough evidence to arrest all the plotters. Not only do the Russians have videos of their meetings, they also intercepted their Zoom video conferences (Zoom users, use Jitsi instead!).
So far so good. But it gets better!
Unlike the US/UK and others, the Russian FSB did not say that they were “confident” that it was “highly likely” that this operation took place. They released all the footage of a meeting of the plotters in Moscow which confirms it all (I don’t have the time to translate that footage, but I am confident that somebody will – if you come across an English language translation, please post it in the comments section below!).
One not familiar with such operations might be baffled over why this meeting took place in Moscow and not in Warsaw or Riga. There are several reasons for that:
- There is a practically open border between Belarus and Russia, which form “а unified state”, and there is nothing easier for the (supposed) Bielorussian traitors (from the military) to jump in a car and get to Moscow.
- Using Warsaw or Riga would dramatically reduce what the CIA calls “plausible deniability” for the US and NATO.
- Yes, meeting in Moscow was still stupid, but no more stupid than the failed US coup to do to Maduro when the US did exactly what they tried to do to Lukashenko. The fact that both operations failed is par for the course for the (mostly clueless) CIA.
- The main plotter, a very well-known anti-Lukashenko activist, is a double national Bielorussian and US American and for him to move to Minsk for that meeting would be very dangerous.
- Last, but not least, the Bielorussian KGB operates in a very tightly controlled Bielorussian society whereas Russian is an open and liberal society, so one could have (mistakenly) thought that a meeting in Moscow would have been a better idea.
Interesting story, no?
Also, if you wonder whether it is credible that the FSB saved Lukashenko – I will remind you that it was the Russians who saved Erdogan from a US-backed coup which was also supposed to include Erdogan’s murder (the Turks practically admitted it publicly several times).
But it gets even better!
As soon as the accusation of a CIA plan to murder Lukashenko in a coup came out, they did what they always do: denied it against all evidence and created a huge distraction: the US colony known as the “Czech Republic” declared that the explosion of a weapons depot in the Czech Republic in 2014 was a Russian sabotage involving… … wait for it… … drum roll…. the very same Petrov and Boshirov whom the UK accused of poisoning the Skripals!
Friends, the Czechs released this story withing ONE HOUR of the Bielorussian news! One hour, seriously!
The Czechs immediately expelled 18 Russian diplomats and the Russian reciprocated by expelling 20 Czech diplomats leaving only 5 in Moscow. So if we use the English expression about the “shit hitting the fan”, then it would also be fair to refer to the Czechs as “shit shields” for the Empire :-)
By the way, the official Czech investigation in 2014 concluded that the explosion was caused by negligence, not sabotage but, really, who cares? After all, look at these accusations, all as unproven and as silly as this one: (partial list in no special order)
- Russian invaded the Donbass
- Russia shot down MH-17
- Russia tried to poison the Skripals
- Russia murdered Berezovskii
- Russia tried to poison Litvenenko
- Russia tried to poison Navalnyi
- Russia murdered Boris Nemtsov
- Russia murdered Politkovskaia
- Russia tried to poison Yushchenko
- Russia interfered in two (!) US Presidential elections
- Russia hacked the DNC computers
- Russia paid Afghans to kill US soldiers
- The Russians shot down the aircraft of the Polish president over Smolensk
- The Russians tried to organize a coup in Montenegro
- The Russians organized the movement for an independent Catalonia
To repeat, none, NONE of these accusations were ever proven or even substantiated. ALL of these accusations are solely based on the putatively undeniable credibility of the western special services.
And, of course, the western “Russia experts” all fully endorsed this nonsense (hey, that is what these so-called “experts” are paid to do; as somebody who once was a member of the IISS, I know these “experts” and their “expertise” well enough – I even resigned from the IISS in protest over its total subservience to US anti-Russian narratives).
And people who call themselves “democrats” and people capable of critical thought buy all this shit with no doubts whatsoever, none. They don’t even see how pathetic and clueless they really are…
So the Czechs (and their US masters) are running a well rehearsed and “safe” track because they all know that the western audience is fully accustomed to hear the following:
“We accuse Russia of X, we say that our special services have evidence, but we won’t present any; as for the western media, they will, of course, trust the western special services, because they are “democratic” and, therefore, “trustworthy” (Iraq anybody?!).
Another trick, which the Czechs used in this case, is this: on the first day announce urbi et orbi that “we will soon release all the incontrovertible evidence we have” and then simply declare it classified because it is important not to show the Russians the evidence of their own, putatively Russian, operation. As for the western press, they, of course, simply forget about that and go onto the the next Russia bashing story.
It is simple, but with the kind of sheep the western regimes deal with, it is also effective.
Finally, when truly desperate, you can count on the MI6 run Bellingcat to get their “evidence”, I kid you not, from the social media on the Internet.
And, again, the western sheep “eat it all up”, with appetite and gusto! Sic transit gloria mundi indeed!
Still, accusing the self same two putative GRU agents Petrov and Boshirov shows how desperate the Czechs were to cook up some story literally overnight. Now they look stupid beyond any conceivable explanations for such a massive and, frankly, hilarious faceplant.
Will the people of the Czech Republic now revolt in outrage against the sheer idiocy of their leaders? Nah, of course not. After all, we are living in a post-truth (and, I would argue, post-logical) world where the only thing which matters is to follow the SS motto of “my honor is fidelity” and blind obedience to the masters of the day.
What about the US in all this? Would “Biden” really be crazy enough to try to murder a foreign leader?
Well, as I like to say, past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, right? How many foreign leaders has the CIA actually murdered and how many did she only try, and fail, to murder? (Note: somebody ought to compare the number of foreign leaders murdered by the US and the USSR. I am sure that the comparison would be both shocking and very telling). How about the official (White House admitted) murder of General Soleimani? Was that operation not far more dangerous than to use locals to try to assassinate a weakened and embattled leader like Lukashenko?
So, you tell me: true story or “Russian disinformation”?
PS: in case you wonder, the Russians are laughing hysterically and scratching their heads wondering what in the world happened to a once civilized western society.
PPS: by the way, the Russian FSB also arrested the Ukie consul in Saint Petersburg at the moment when he was receiving classified information from what he thought was an agent. He will be expelled. It was a great weekend for the FSB – there will be lots of medals handed out for this good work.
UPDATE 1: Maria Zakharova, the Foreign Ministry’s chief spokeswoman has now officially confirmed it all on Russian TV.
UPDATE 2: The Kremlin just confirmed the Putin and Biden discussed this topic during their telephone conference.
UPDATE 3: Got to love the western media, not a word about the coup, all about the Czech fairy tale.
Caught In (the) Act (yet again)
Yes. Assassinating Lukashenko (and others) makes sense. In fact similar tactics were used as in 2019, when the West provoked anti-Lukashenko protests in Minsk, hoping they would spill over into Russia after the Navalny false flag attack. Since the 2019 demonstrations in Belarus did not work out as expected, an assassination plot is orchestrated, where the aim was to destabilize the country and see pro-Western liberals take over, eventually seeing Belarus in NATO and NATO forces on the Belarus-Russian border. Since in September we have Parliamentary elections in Russia (something I constantly keep repeating), the intent, of course, was to use Belarus as an influencing factor in Russia, giving a psychological and political boost to liberals. What the West got was a hilarious failure, which no doubt made Putin and Lukashenko more stronger at home.
on a lighter side, french media recently reported that Russia also hacked the servers of the french education ministry: https://amp.lefigaro.fr/secteur/high-tech/ecole-a-la-maison-des-cyberattaques-en-provenance-de-chine-et-de-russie-confirmees-20210411
is there anything bad in this world they are not responsible for?
Well, before that they have hacked the Spanish unemployment office…and due that hack payements of the already almost half the young population unemployed by the pandemic measures were delayed…the Spanish “intelligence service” dixit
Of course, the fact that the alleged “recovery funds” will not arrive till the end of the year, in the best case, and not without harsh EU troika conditions, has nothing to do….
I can’t think of anything the Russians didn’t do. Back in the 70’s whenever it rained in Germany, the bad weather was blamed on the russians, i.e. “the Russians are messing with the weather again” was the saying on the street.
This has back-fired on the kusa ,Now i think there is a very good chance of Belarus becoming part of Russia ,
it may be anounced by Putin on April 21 2021 .I hope now Putin would take over the Ukraine and get it over with. As long as Ukraine is controled by the West Russia will have problems. I known that their will be Cost $$$
Rubles but it will be worth it. and it will be a message to the West ,the Gloves are off !!!
Yes, probably you are right
Margarita Simonian said three days ago that every time when America, West and their East European VASSALS or idiots in Kiev do something stupid aiming to harm Russia, then Russia gain something as a gift from them.
Every time Russia gets some profit, like Ossetia, Abhazia, Donbass, Crimea, sucessful import substitution program …
West and its vassals are stupid beyond imagination.
IMHO, the West no longer has coherent and apparent leadership … has the US been overtaken, slowly and quietly from within over a long period time? Clearly, Biden is not capable of making any strategic plans when he openly admits on video that he doesn’t know what documents he is signing. Perhaps a very prudent exercise would be for those “with the means” to try and figure out who is actually running the US. Many US citizens are confused by what is happening. The US mainstream media is a puppet show all broadcasting the same exact scripts – same exact words. All of this nonsense is going to continue on endlessly or until a world war makes it a moot point. No one wants a war. Have you ever seen a beehive in collapse? I have … the bees lose their communications and directional abilities and can’t even fly … I watched a colony collapse in the wild and the bees were on the ground running in random patterns like rudderless planes. It was a terrifying microcosm that is beginning to look familiar.
Dear ChC, would it be rude for me to ask where and when you observed the collapse? I’ve heard talk recently (last May or so) from Australia of bees simply falling dead to the ground. Something seems to affect their metabolism and they become too weak to fly.
“the West no longer has coherent and apparent leadership” …
This is totally correct. And, you know, it is all according to a dark Plan.
The Plan is to move incompetent political figures on positions for PM or President. As long as they are not competent, it is all right for the Banksters (Cabal or Illuminati) take your pick.
Dangerous story to run. What international arms dealer? In Czech! Selling arms to whom? Nazis?
Were they being backed by US/Nato in this?
Aren’t the guys who blow up arms dumps the good guys? And those that night watch them, the bad guys?
I think this story gets killed quickly before it produces too many pro-Russian themes.
thats the part of the story i havent heard. where were these “arms” being sold? who paid for them?what poor kids and families would be blown up in what nation ? what conflict were they destined? what head chopping democratic freedom lover were to benefit by using them?. operation timber sycamore comes to mind
The Five-Eyes used their middle-men in Bulgaria, Croatia & Serbia to funnel these weapons to their proxy-mercenaries in Syria and Iraq.. The Balkan link to Ukrainian nazis suggest that UA were also recipients..
The story was published well over a year ago by a Bulgarian journalist..
is he dead. now. can we get a translated version of that?
If the Kremlin’s PR department is working, it should take the real Boshirov and Petrov and make them movie stars. They could star in a Forrest Gump-like movie where they travel around the world causing various incidents, ultimately traveling back in time to burn down the Reichstag.
Great idea! They could go on to the Lusitania, and on and on…, you have good imagination.
Obviously these are the bastards who killed the Kennedys, Martin Luther King, and, yes, Bambi’s mother.
Russian time travellers – that explains it all!
Who are Boshirov and Petrov ?
From what I remember from the Skripal farce, these two were not even intelligence…just private citizens?
There was even a story they were just two gays who were discreetly trying to attend a gay rave party in Salisbury before all hell broke loose.
They are heroes to be of Czechia in waiting , probably to be awarded the White Lion Order, the highest order of my Vaterland. They erased Kaufland and Macro selling guns for terorirost and warlrords. Czech PM Mr. Babiš confirmed that the two depots were rented to certain Emilian Gebrev a Bulgarian citizen involved in weapons deals. The arms were supposed to be sold ISIS in Syria and Ukronacis under auspices of local CIA servants.
Is this true or some kind of ironi?
If not, is there a source to read?
“Czech PM Mr. Babiš confirmed that the two depots were rented to certain Emilian Gebrev a Bulgarian citizen involved in weapons deals.”
Oh yes, Emilian Gebrev.
Developed a bad skin itch around 2015 according to the UK Guardian.
He claimed it was the Russians trying to kill him ( as you might if you’re renting weapons depots from a NATO member country ).
It is unclear as to which parts of his body were affected but luckily Mr Emilian Gebrev survived the ordeal and continues to bring joy to the world.
So we have Gebrev, Skripals, Navalny all poisoned by the Russians and yet all still alive.
The Russians obviously are not particularly good at this kind of thing.
Perhaps they should give up on military grade Novichok for a bit and shout their victims McDonalds instead?
Ha Ha Ha Ha. Cant wait for that movie.
How has the USA achieved so fascinating and absolute obedience of its vassal states?
Where are the famous Czech intellectuals right now?
😁😁😁most of Czech intellectuals are in big love with USA and the rest is silenced or accused to be Russian trolls
They’ve been Czech mated.
For Washington it’s been a regime of many carrots and many sticks–enough for any and everyone. I’m serious and it works.
Paying back loans, leasings and things like that. Hoping for Seréš checks to make things better.
“How has the USA achieved so fascinating and absolute obedience of its vassal states?”
It’s called money. Reserve currency can be printed at will, and it infects almost all countries. Meanwhile, the core decays.
According to Paul Craig Roberts this is done through bribes
Extortion is one tool used to insure obedience. It was well known that FBI Director Hoover had files on *everybody* important in Washington.
There’s no reason to think the extortion ended with Hoover’s death (see: Jeffrey Epstein). The US is a criminal conspiracy that runs a classic protection racket.
“You sure have a nice nation/business/family/life. Be a shame should something happen to it…”
The expression “No plan survives contact with the enemy” is widely known.
(originally, it was von Moltke, field marshal of the Prussian army, who once said: “No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy’s main strength”; anyway, “No plan survives contact with the enemy” sounds much better).
It seems that “the plan” was to spread chaos into Belarus just prior to launching the offensive against the Donbass. Miserably, such a plan didn’t survive contact with the FSB (which stands for “the enemy”).
What else may we surmise from such a plan?
That the invasion date was set for just after May 9th.
Incidentally, next New Moon (darkness) will be on May 11th.
Will they now redraw “the plan” for June?
Napoleon would like to have invaded Russia in May, however having to deal with the Spanish guerrillas led him to postpone it to June (24th). Likewise, Hitler has set Barbarossa to be launched in May, however his further decision to occupy Yugoslavia and Greece delayed the invasion until June (22th). Collective “Biden” cannot learn from History once they don’t even know what History is meant for — so they also probably don’t know Marx’s quote, “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce”.
Let’s wait and see what ensues.
Or, as Field Marshall Tyson famously put it: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
The level of absurdity from the West is truly mind boggling.
My guess is that we will witness yet more on the 21st April: Breaking news, Aleksei Navalny dies in Russian prison…followed by a 24-hour torrent of hysterics, melodrama, manufactured outrage, more sanctions, fake tears etc all in an attempt to drown out VVP’s speech and provide a smokescreen for yet more provocations from the Ukies.
Just remembered that it will be the 80th anniversary of Barbarossa on the 22nd June 2021.
I wouldn’t put it past the UkroNazis and their masters to attempt Barbarossa II on that date.
I don’t know anyone in the USA paying attention to any of this?
If I asked people on the street if they knew who Navalny was, they wouldn’t be able to answer.
It’s only the useless media and even more useless politicians.
I’d estimate that perhaps 1% of the people in the U.S. are paying attention to these events. With no coverage in the mainstream media, people have to 1) be political junkies and 2) dig around on alternative media sites like this one to be able to even start to connect the dots and see the big picture. Sadly, political awareness is not a quality that most American people possess.
Sad enough, but I have to tell you that here in Europe the Navalny-Creature has posessed the front pages, even of the yellow press. And here, some people are really ready to accept this b*s* for reality…
“boohooh, they tried to kill Navalny, tomorrow they will try to kill my kitten”…
Propaganda is primitive, but never underestimate it’s influence…
I guess they were told to stay with the Navalny stupidity (Le Drian was again going on about it yesterday) because, as Ischenko surmises, his group was planning stunts to go along with the Belarus coup…
People in the US are focused much closer to home. I know people here are not much interested in the internal politics in America, but our real problems are not maintaining the empire, but …
1) Totalitarian Lockdowns, the suspension of civil liberties that American have had for 250 years and the rise of tyrannies both local and national.
2) The related attempt by radial leftists (critical theory) to destroy every institution in America, where the main vehicle appears to be an attempt to start a race war.
I think the Wehrmacht was just a bit more capable than the Ukrainian Military or NATO itself. So, no Barbarossa II.
Whatever Putin says will be digested to a small phrase and spun as something horrible in the US. Actually listening to what Putin says … the hours and hours of it, is the reason I came to regard him as the greatest Statesman in the World today, but I am an incredibly tiny minority in the US.
There are a few of us who admire Putin from afar.
Careful! Barbarossa pre-empted Stalin’s invasion and roll-up of Europe by less than a fortnight. You have read Suslov, no doubt.
“Suslov”. Ya wanna try again?
Very good work again by FSB and the Belarusian KGB. I suppose Western ”intelligence” — an oxymoron par excellence — will be focussing on the Navalny punk who will soon be gone forever due to his substance abuse (masquerading as ’Novichok’ in Western parlance). In vivid contrast to Navalny, ”Europe’s last dictator” is perfectly safe and sound and, needless to say, a successful attempt on Lukashenko’s life would also have been explained as ”Russian aggression”.
As for that long list of really infinite Russian evil, one item stands out as particularly entertaining:
<blockquoteRussia paid Afghans to kill US soliders
As if people around the world would have to be paid to kill Pindo mercenaries. Might apply to Gównopolska and a few other places, but elsewhere — absolutely nothing of the sort.
Rather than concentrate attention on details, once in a while, one needs to stand back and take in the whole picture.
Their plans, such as plan to de-populate via vaccines and to mongrelise remaining humanity is not really working out for them that well..
Plan to wage another war on Russia is now also untenable; as Russian President had clearly stated – that war will be brought to the enemy’s doorstep. They are imbecilic psychopaths, being helped and assisted by less than competent “helpers”, such as CIA, MI6 and others, but they are not suicidal by any stretch.
Their banking “empire” is crumbling all around them.
The only thing where they still have some success is with their MSM – that combined with the totally corrupted and influenced “education” of the past thirty years produced generations of dumb-downed and brainwashed. Add controlled social media to that, and as a result, we are now seeing the growing division between these who are aware and awake and these who cannot see the reality even if it hits them in the face. Or even care. And this is where lays the main problem for the humanity – how to reverse that, how to help these people to recover their God given brainpower and be able to clearly understand when they are being lied to. That would be the watershed moment.
Just a side note. I know Lukashenko has a bad reputation because of MSM (last dictator etc) first of all, but also because of controversies with Russia over a variation of issues. These two sides leaves not much room for recognizing Lukashenko for the leadership he has factual done.
To my knowledge fact is Belarus is a quite peaceful country without all the dirt of prostitutes, arms and drug trade and gangster domination like Ukraine and Bulgaria. The population is generally satisfied with Lukashenko’s governance, as there is widespread freedom of religion and government support to social activities.
But Lukashenko has balanced against the same evils. He declared once that if Russian oligarchs only did the same exploitation as western oligarchs, he could as well chose the one who offered the cheapest price.
Gazprom squeezed him for conditions and higher price than they offered Europa.
Lukashenko took a stand against IMF and WHO and thus in many ways defended his country.
He saw the future will be Russia and China, and he made the choice of path in the for Belarus right moment. He is his own.
I just wish to give Lukashenko the respect he deserves, as we in our one sided favourite can miss the nuances in the overall story.
I discovered even Poland has their reasons to be where they are today, not saying its the best of all choices, just saying they have their reasons and my impression is Kremlin knows and respect these backgrounds in their overall evaluations. More than we do :-).
Not only that, but he largely ignored Covid Mania. I’ve read accounts by more than one person, that visiting Belarus is shocking now, … because it is ‘normal’. There was a strong sense of jealousy in those reports. Kind of like New Yorkers who have visited Florida.
Last dictator is Milo Djukanovic. He is in power 3-4 years longer than AL
Ishchenko builds a broader context of a war readied against Russia using the murder of Lukashenko and the top military, as well as, his family.
You’ll need Yandex Browser to translate.
Now, we have Russian reports that Putin confronted Biden with this mass murder coup plot in their phone call the other day. Always, Putin holds “the goods” when he makes his moves.
These are the same US operatives who tried to knock off Erdogan and Maduro. Maduro the same way, at a Sadat-style military function. Instead of Muslim Brotherhood soldiers with AK-47s, they tried to use a UAV firing a small rocket at the Venezuelan.
With Erdogan, it was going to be an Turkish air force shoot down of Erdogan’s plane.
These clowns in State and CIA are obsessed with the power to kill opponents. Very dangerous.
Great work by the Russian FSB.
Lukashenko owes his life and his children’s lives to Putin. He’s an ungrateful lout so don’t expect much from him, though the Union State awaits Belarus to wise up and move into the union with Russia.
As for the Ukies and Poles and Baltic midgets, they will have to reload their wet dream machines.
And just the other day Biden was calling Putin a “killer”.
And Putin, once again, proved himself to be exactly that: A killer of Zionazi hopes and dreams. Even a vegetable speaks the truth occasionally.
‘And just the other day Biden was calling Putin a “killer”.’
Doublethinking brain of Anglozionists works that way. To maintain their own moral superiority (in their own eyes), they are COMPELLED to acuse somebody else of crime they are just planing to commit.
Now , Bidens ridiculous “killer” interview makes more sense.
Yes, it was clearly projection. What hypocrites the US chickenhawks are.
Chickenhawks: ultra-hawks who have never seen action in war themselves. Includes Clintons, Bush junior, Obama, Trump, Biden.
Biden was excused service in Vietnam on medical grounds (‘asthma’!). Trump had bone ‘bone spurs’ in his foot. Bush junior got a safe domestic posting in the Air National Guard.
Some of the Hollywood ‘tough guy’ actors like John Wayne and Clint Eastwood are in the same category. Wayne did not serve in WW2 and the younger Eastwood did not serve in Korea or Vietnam. That is, phonies
“Now, we have Russian reports that Putin confronted Biden with this mass murder coup plot in their phone call the other day. Always, Putin holds “the goods” when he makes his moves.”
That would explain tha apparent contradictory move by Biden on calling for an in person summit with Putin in a third country and the next hour launching a whole bat of harshest sanctions against Russia to take the front position and sending warships into the Black Sea…..
Wondering how much more dirty the Russians could throw towards the fan….
Indeed, yes, they seem to try the same tricks everywhere, apparently unwilling to accept that they no longer work – which signals a form of mental burnout.
Ischenko’s context is broad indeed:
He includes Navalny’s useful idiots’ planned demonstration as mirroring the now discovered Belarus conspiracy. Then he adds other countries:
Taking advantage of the presence of Russian forces who’d have gone to Minsk to help restore order, the Poles & co. would send their armies into Belarus. The Americans would then use their propaganda media to secure a political advantage & use it to pressure their European partners into joining the fray and help the brave people of Belarus who’d just have overthrown the bloody tyrant. Poland, the Baltic crazies & others would move in, while the Ukies attack the Donbas – at which time, according to Ischenko, the Georgians would also attack Abkhazia and S. Ossetia.
(Don’t know why he omits Moldova attacking Pridnestrovie…)
Russian forces would not be deterred, but they’d be operating on the entire space from the Baltic to the Caspian Seas, fighting a coalition of six or seven countries – all claiming Russia attacked them.
But now that the cat is out of the bag, the US may get cold feet – or not. It may think it is still possible to move against Russia, in which case it would bring forward some of the planned actions, not waiting for May 9th…
Well, you never know what a desperate hegemon might do, but one would think this busting of the Minsk conspiracy would have put paid to their evil plans.
Thanks, Saker, for an amazing article. I have the following little comment. I am a Czech national and while you are totally right the Czechs won`t `revolt in outrage against the sheer idiocy of their leaders`, it seems to me (judging by the comments on various social platforms) that a good half of them is totally disgusted by the rabid Russophobia of their leaders and the MMS. It also seems to me that those (here in the Czech Republic) who don`t find the official story of a Russian sabotage totally ridiculous are in a substantial minority.
Anyway, thanks again for your analysis, Saker.
I agree with your assessment of the mood in the Czech Republic. I am also Czech and read comments under many recent articles in the Czech press, and most readers are disgusted with the actions of their idiotic government.
pleasure to learn there are other Czech readers of this unique blog. Spread the word, bro :)
I really have laughed after reading this.
Killing Lukasenko …nothing new and unusual for CIA.
But what is really amazing to me is Czech stupidity
What they intended to achieve and gain with this BS…it is really beyond me.
Now they are complaining that their embassy in Moscow is paralized.
Hahaha they are complaining
I do not know, but stupidity of the Western politicians and their media propagandists is hilarious.
And especially their East European colonies are clowns
All of this their idiotism …to me personally has became amusing and entertaining
Americans and Brits maybe believe that Russians are afraid of them.
Haha haha, what a joke.
Just a week or so ago I’ve seen video or read an article (can’t remember which) about the catastrophic state of the tourism industry in Czech as much as that one desperate region started negotiation with Russia (not sure what counterpart) about opening direct flights to the airport in the region plus smooth visa process where they would arrange logistics etc.
And now this. Stupidity beyond imagination.
They can kiss goodbye to the majority of the Russian tourists for a foreseeable future.
The story was breaking on Saturday all over Russian mainstream media.
Not a peep on rt.com till Monday. Just a side node down the page. Despite all the a** kissing by f.e. Vlad Solovyov to Magarita Simonyan, RT has been in a steep decline for years now. It has also become a irrelevant rag on the internet sporting 3rd rate models bottoms and naughty little b **s stories in the headlines.
Soft Power looks different to me. Russia has some very good citizen journalists, which they could sponsor, but no. Gazprom media f.e. is sponsoring “ekho muskvy”. Russian elites are in cahoots with Western media to demoralize, deconstruct, destabilize and atomize Russians from within. Another thing is, that so called opposition politicians like Navalny can operate freely in Russia for years, while receiving deferred sentences in a sequence and freely traveling, while also prohibited to do so. It’s all a charade and a game.
I think Bidon (as known in Russia), the US Congress and almost all US presidents deserve monuments in Russia, for their great efforts to re-sovereignize the fatherland. A feat impossible to understate. These achievements practically write the script for sovereignization – Russian patriots be damned (being ineffectual and irrelevant…).
There is the ‘silent majority’… the media spin which westerners are so used to, and the richer Russians emulate, is not the real Russian way… RT is mainly for foreign audiences, aimed to capture as wide an audience as possible.
Navalny serves well as an ‘immunisation programme’ the more his various antics are reported, the less credibility and traction he has within Russia.. IMHO….
Russia is a far freer society today than it used to be…and that is a positive thing…so many opinions are allowed…otherwise there would be some who would squeal about all the censorship??
I am exposed daily to the British media spin and know well who the owners of these media outlets are…that does not make me respect or accept their views just because they are voicing their opinions..
If i were the Russians i would paralyze that Embassy by closing it and giving those clowns masquerading as Diplomats 24 hours to leave the Country,enough of this nonsense.
The bumbling Biden handlers continue to be the “gang that couldn’t shoot straight”. However, even though we can delight in glee at this “gift” to the forces for Truth, the fact is that these same incompetents still have control of a vast array of nuclear weapons. Which they can through equal ineptitude launch and stumble us and humanity into WWIII.
Questions; How will this now affect Belorussia and Russia? Will they form a new Federation of Nations? Where an attack on one is an attack on the other? What will be the big coming announcement of Putin scheduled for April 21? And the other big announcement that Lukashenko is scheduled to make? Did the Americans finally push Lukashenko and Belorussia back completely into Russia’s orbit and how will this really be implemented in the real world?
ACTIVITIES OF CITIZENS OF THE REPUBLIC OF BELARUS ZYANKOVICH YURI LEONIDOVICH AND FEDUTA ALEXANDER IOSIFOVICH, WHO WERE PLANNING A MILITARY COUP IN BELARUS
The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, together with the State Security Committee of the Republic of Belarus, as a result of a special operation, suppressed the illegal activities of Yuri Leonidovich Zyankovich, who has dual citizenship of the United States and the Republic of Belarus, and Alexander Iosifovich Feduta, a citizen of the Republic of Belarus, who were planning to carry out a military coup in Belarus according to a worked-out scenario of “color revolutions” with the involvement of local and Ukrainian nationalists, as well as the physical elimination of President A. Lukashenko.
According to the preemptive information received from the Belarusian partners, in the private chats of one of the Internet messengers, the ideologues of the Belarusian radical opposition Zyankovich Y. and Feduta A. organized a discussion of the plan for an armed insurrection in Belarus and decided to hold a personal meeting in Moscow using the measures of secrecy available to them with opposition-minded generals of the Armed Forces of the Republic.
Upon Ziankovich’s arrival in Moscow, after consultations in the United States and Poland, the scheduled meeting took place in a separate office of one of the capital’s restaurants. During the meeting, the conspirators told the “Belarusian generals” that for the successful implementation of their plan, it was necessary to physically eliminate practically the entire top leadership of the republic. They detailed the plan for a military coup, in particular, including the seizure of radio and television centers to broadcast their appeal to the people, blocking the internal troops and riot police units loyal to the current government in the capital of the republic. A complete shutdown of the power system of Belarus was being prepared to hinder the actions of power and law enforcement agencies. It was assumed that some armed formations (“partisans”) located on the so-called “Hidden bases”.
The ultimate goal was to change the constitutional order with the abolition of the presidency and the imposition of the country’s leadership on the “Committee of National Reconciliation”. At the same time, Zyankovich planned to become the “curator” of the country’s parliament and the legal system, while Feduta wanted to engage in political reform and ideological work.
It is noteworthy that the oppositionists have chosen the day of the Victory Parade in Minsk on May 9th this year as the date of the military coup.
After documenting the meeting, the conspirators were detained by the Russian security forces and handed over to their Belarusian partners.
In relation to Zyankovich and Feduta, the investigative bodies of Belarus are investigating a criminal case on the grounds of a crime under Article 357 (conspiracy or other actions committed with the aim of seizing state power) of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Belarus.
Thank you for posting this!!
”It is noteworthy that the oppositionists have chosen the day of the Victory Parade in Minsk on May 9th this year as the date of the military coup.”
Not particularly smart. Now these scum will be put to very good use as part of the parade. Fascist vermin defeated by the State of Belarus and its loyal citizens. Well, Zyankovich and Feduta could always be awarded the Nobel peace prize as due consolation. Better luck next time.
Does this sound highly delusional to anyone else? Who are these military leaders that would have supported a coup? I somehow doubt you can take over a country with 2 people. Who was going to disable the electrical grid? I guess this could be serious, in which case I would think they would be rounding up dozens if not hundreds of co-conspirators. Is that happening? If not, this seems like a joke.
Don’t have to take over the whole country — you’re trying to cause confusion, create a “government” for the West to “recognise”, cause lots of excitement in Western media, frighten the Europeans, maybe get a Maidan style camp set up. Start another running sore on Russia’s borders.
At the same time things happen in Moldova, Ukraine and maybe Georgia.
PS is this true? Strong evidence that it is and that Moscow and Minsk are telling 90%+ of the truth is the silence in the Western “free” “news” media.
Hope FSB got all their contacts details and can investigate further.
Many of us are aware by now that President Putin will address the National Parliament of the Russian Federation on Wednesday April 21, 2021.
What will he say about the US threat of hostilities in its design of using the Black Sea coastal states under the auspices of NATO membership as a launch platform against the sovereignty of Russia?
Russian leadership is comprised of men and women who work together to implement beneficial domestic and international polices and to offer emergency medical assistance such as responding to the COVID-19 pandemic to help other nations. Russia recently sent the Sputnik V vaccine to the country of San Marino, a nation of 33,000 people because they desperately needed it and could not get timely help from the European Union. Russia works diligently and with patience to avoid military conflict with their border neighbors for the sake of peace.
The word “war” along with its associated vernacular is used across the spectrum of US society (e.g., war on poverty, war between political ideology, sports athletes’ weapons, etc.). Russians do not treat this word carelessly because they know what real war means; use of destructive military force against the citizens and property of another country. Russia is a nation of multi-cultural peoples and has seen the horror of war first-hand many times in its thousand-year history and most notably against the Nazi fascists in World War II. Even today across the western border of the country, Russian citizens of men, women and children who live in the Donbass region of the Ukraine experience death by cannon and small arms fire with impunity by the armed forces of the Ukrainian government.
The Russian Federation government has always tried to use the United Nations formal process in its legal framework of international law to raise important global and regional issues to the forefront for serious discussion. Russia worked together with other members of the Trilateral Contact Group to bring the Ukrainian belligerents together at the negotiation table and they signed by their hand the Minsk agreements. The OSCE was tasked to monitor the ceasefire but their efforts have fared poorly other than to provide daily reports of numerous violations.
The situation has not only worsened in Ukraine but now Russia’s own sovereignty is in peril. Witness the chronology of events in the last two months:
March 24 Ukrainian President Zelensky made an official statement describing his intention to retake the Donbass region by force of arms and invade the Crimean Federal District of the Russian Federation. Since then, Ukraine Armed Forces have brought heavy weapons to the lines of contact including the northern border of Crimea. Zelensky has been speaking to members of NATO to solicit their military expertise and weapons to aid his agenda and they have responded enthusiastically.
April 10 President Erdogan of Turkey, which is a member of NATO, formally said he supports Ukraine’s position on Donbass and Crimea.
April 13 NATO announced it will also support Ukraine’s attempt to make war even though the Ukraine is not a member.
April 15 US President Biden formally declared the Russian Federation a national threat to the United States in his executive order. U.S. military advisors are now embedded with the Ukraine army to offer strategies on different scenarios of battle. One of the US Pentagon’s Attaché to Kiev by the name of Colonel Brittany Stewart wore a Ukrainian uniform with the Nazi SS death head insignia on it.
April 17 A plot to assassinate President Lukashenko by the US was intercepted by our Federal Security Service.
The United Kingdom recently announced two British warships will sail into the Black Sea in support of President Zelensky’s March 24th proclamation and will arrive in May.
It is clear the United States and its NATO alliance will aid Ukraine’s plan to make war against Russia citizens in Donbass and the Crimean peninsula that has been lawfully incorporated into Russia as a federal district. As the days unfold, it cannot be ignored that innocent people will be subjugated to violent, military force. Sadly it appears the inevitability of this current event cannot be stopped by reasonable men through the foundation of statesmanship established by the dialog of goodwill and commonsense.
Russia cannot allow US-NATO to occupy the Ukraine as it currently does in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan for they will put death on its doorstep if they fail to take action now. Therefore Putin should ask for a declaration of defensive war against Ukraine as is their right to defend themselves under the Russian Constitution and under Chapter VII, Article 51 of the United Nations Charter.
What has happened in Crimea and possibly Donbass is not without historical precedent. The Americans should be reminded of their own history such as what happened on April 19, 1775 when British colonists chose to exercise their right of self-determination and revolted against England. Mexican Texas did the same and separated from Mexico to become the Republic of Texas in 1836. It existed for nearly 10 years as a sovereign State before they peacefully chose to join in union with the United States in 1845. In 1991, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics broke apart nonviolently into 15 separate countries and the Ukraine is one of them today. Czechoslovakia dissolved by government decree into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1992.
The UNSC must understand Crimea has a 200-year history with Russia. Due to a variety of internal disputes with the government of Kiev the people chose to separate from Ukraine by an internationally observed electoral referendum.
These are all examples where people across the world decide for themselves how they shall be governed and is a touchstone declared in item 2 of Article I of the UN Charter that states, ” To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;”
If a vote in favor of a declaration of defensive war is made, Minister Lavrov needs to address the UNSC and call for mediation under Chapter VI of the UN Charter, “Pacific Settlement of Disputes.” Hopefully it will direct the attention of the Security Council or the General Assembly to realize the Russian Federation and permanent member of the UNSC, sees no other path to peace if the representatives of the UN fail to make a just and fair decision on this particular matter that has gone on for far too long.
The declaration of defensive war in itself does not necessarily mean the armies of Russia will pour over Ukraine’s western border and over their northern border from Belarus. But it will put US-NATO in a Hobson’s choice predicament and that is to choose peace. If they choose to cross the Rubicon then the necessity of defensive war will happen to preserve the sovereignty of Mother Russia.
Poke the Truth’s summation of events and recommendation of a Declaration of Defensive War is well reasoned.
Such a declaration justifies the defensive actions already taken by the RF, puts Ukraine on the political back foot, removes NATO actions from legal consideration, and may well avoid WWIII.
@ PokeTheTruth – “One of the US Pentagon’s Attaché to Kiev by the name of Colonel Brittany Stewart wore a Ukrainian uniform with the Nazi SS death head insignia on it.”
Do you have a link please? I’d love to read an article about the ‘U.$. ’embedding’ their ‘operatives’ in other peoples military’s in order to try and ‘ad weight’ to military campaigns. There must be something somewhere and it wouldn’t be the first time the U.$. had done so.
Here is an instance: Ukraine, bombe US en Europe, par Manlio Dinucci
Death Or Ukraine: US Delegation Came On Donbass Frontlines Under Nazi Flags (Apr 9 – Yonews)
Mr. Vasco Da Gama posted a link for you.below your reply.
Here is a picture of Colonel Stewart that shows the death head insignia patch on her left arm.
You would think the U.S. Army would teach their commissioned officers about the history of insignias and flags that represented the Nazi Schutzstaffel (SS) that were chiefly responsible for the genocide killings of millions of non-combatants during World War II..
Great post PTT…the best I have seen to date on the Ukraine crisis.
I read several articles about this coup plan. It seems the US is now working full time to create multiple new conflicts all over the world. Is this the terminal thrashing about that empires do in their death throes?
Saker, I’ve read that there is ongoing UAF military action in the Donbass but have not been able to find details. I assume that it is below the threshold of Russian response. Is there anyone following the action along the contact line?
Please pay attention to Semyon Pegov’s YouTube channel WarGonzo
and the Anna News agency, whose front-line correspondents follow the situation in Syria and the Donbas. They are Russian, but on their website and YouTube (video subtitles) try to choose English, Spanish and other languages.
Oh it gets better. The Czechs are running backward very fast. The PM says:
“It was not an act of state terrorism, which means that Russia did not attack the Czech Republic,” Babis said on Monday. “Once again – it was not an act of state terrorism, it was an attack on goods belonging to a Bulgarian arms dealer.”
An attack on goods … oh wow … Hahaaaahaaaaaaa …..
LOL….so it was a well deserved and well placed explosion. Off course Biden and US deep state are pessed.
As long as people in the USA can go to Taco Bell and watch 3rd grade stupid stuff on television, nothing will ever change. The people in the US are so helplessly brainwashed and without courage to change anything even when they know it is bad for them. If its on tv, its got to be true…especially when its for your “safety”.
Try to discuss anything of substance and all you get is empty looks of uncomfortableness. I have mentioned to many people about war potential in the Ukraine, and not one person knew anything about it.
There is a race against time for the empire to create a false pretense before the economic collapse. Be careful as part of this it would be very convenient for a false flag in the USA and blame it on Russia, China or Iran. I keep thinking that a fake EMP or electrical grid outage may be it. One other thought to consider is the US occupying Russia with Ukraine and China with Taiwan, but he real target may be Iran. Tying up its allies may be the plan???
To sum it up…People in the USA care more about what Kim Kardashian puts into her mouth than what comes out of any politician or bureaucrat’s mouth.
Yes, I’ve long thought a grid outage – likely conveniently excluding the major coastal neo-lib havens – might be the next big one here in the US. Stir up the outrage in “flyover country,” since that’s all those people are good for anyway, while sparing the sacred great financial and media centers. Hey, how are all those people going to know they’re being gaslighted if the lapdog media’s not there to tell them so? Blame it all on Russian and/or Chinese infiltrators and away-y-y-y-y-y we go!
”Also, if you wonder whether it is credible that the FSB saved Lukashenko – I will remind you that it was the Russians who saved Erdogan from a US-backed coup which was also supposed to include Erdogan’s murder”
That is correct. Now, both Lukashenko and the wily rat Sultan Erdogan are able leaders with a rock-solid popular mass base which they are quite entitled to. The contrast to the ”leaderships” emanating from Pindos and Euro-trash is just overwhelming. One almost gets the impression that for the FSB to take action to protect foreign leaders, the latter must have proven themselves as being more than despicable lackeys of Oligarchy.
The 12 most dangerous words in the English language…I’m from the United States of America, I’m here to help you.
How did that work out for Vietnam, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan etc.
Did you ever hear of historian William Blum, one of my personal heroes, who died in late 2018? https://williamblum.org/about
After reading his “Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II”, I hoped I would one day meet Mr. Blum, but that’ll never happen. He always spoke the cold, hard, ugly truth about what we now call the US’s Deep State that remains in power regardless of what actors are reading their scripts in the three branches of the US government. Of course, he paid a price for doing that. In the last days of his life he or someone he knew on his behalf, set up a go-fund-me (or something similar) page on which people could make contributions to defray at least some of the cost of his medical treatment. So Bill died far from being a rich man.
Anyway, in April of 2015, significantly for today’s discussion, not long after the US-engineered coup in Ukraine and not very long before the end of his life, Blum was interviewed by Sophie Shevardnadze on “Sophie & Co”, where he described in detail the never-changing “mindset” of those who control US foreign policy. In it, he mentions the then-recent events in “Ukraine”, including the then-unexplained post-coup US military build-up there; describes the actions of the US in Syria, where Mr. Kerry made the huge mistake of saying that if Assad were to give up his chemical weapons, “which he will never do” (or something to that effect), that the US wouldn’t attack Syria……..at which point Mr Lavrov stepped in and said that Assad would indeed give up all of his chemical weapons; then goes on to mention the ridiculous notion of the US supporting women’s rights in Afghanistan and a variety of other relevant topics to today’s situation of the world. What Blum asserts is precisely why Mr. Potato Head issued “his” executive order recently. NONE of this should be a surprise to anyone who has even one functioning brain cell (which eliminates MPH right off the bat). I believe that RT and Sputnik News are living on borrowed time in “the West”, so see what follows while it’s still available.
Thanks for the link. Blum is calling a spade for a spade. The vietcong way is the only way. m2 per m2.
“The vietcong way is the only way.”
Outcomes of circa 58,000 for circa 3,000,000 is not a way to drown a drowning man with the minimum of blowback.
Even if Mr. Giap had not extended the Tet offensive through the idiocy of his “superior”, it would still not constitute a way to drown a drowning man with the minimum of blowback.
Zionazi never fail to entertain. What do you think, having “international law” framework in mind, be appropriate course of action? Should Belorussian leadership, now in the light of attempted pouch, expel all of the US and Polish diplomats?
The British hand in the Ukraine crisis.
I’m Canadian. Man do we have our problems here with this crew of Globalist Politicians and Controlled media. But when I look at America I see a captured citizenry. Americans don’t want War. The Neo-Con Anglo Zionists in Warshington want War. When I look at the British. I see the same thing. And the same goes for Canada. But they all answer to The City of London and Wallstreet ( and Brussels and Switzerland ) Banksters. I believe that the conflict with Russia in Ukraine, Syria, Armenia, Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Venezuela is about the Global Financial control. If you look into the derivative complex that has kept this unbacked floating exchange rate going since the 2008-2009 Financial crisis you’ll see that it’s the only thing holding the Banking system together. Putin and Xi as well as Trump rejected ” The Great Reset “. This is all about bringing Russia and China and the rest of the World to heel before the AngloZionist Empire of greed.
I don’t want War but these things ( I can’t call them human as they seem to have no heart nor soul ) will never ever ever stop. They’re a malignant boil on the backside of the planet. They need to be lanced and the boil needs to be purged.
You summed it up perfectly.
Will it ever stop?
I only see them getting much more desperate and evil.
They would rather blow up the world than lose control.
Who will stop them?
This political theater becomes more and more convoluted and crazed both in the USA and abroad. At some point, will these “bad actors” deprived of applause sufficient to feed their overweening hubris just burn the building down
with everyone in it? This latest criminal run of these criminals began with snipers on Kiev roof tops and the burning people alive in Odessa.
Evidently the Czech’s feet are being held to the fire because they are now issuing statements to the effect that they are not accusing Russia of state sponsored terrorism. Well, what are they doing then? It is Just bizarre to expel diplomates over a seven year old crime of dubious, unproven provenance with the” circle back” excuse that all proof has to remain a state secret.
As for assassinations: Has anyone discovered who paid for and executed the Russian ambassador to Turkey some years back? Ahhh yes, the lone crazy person theory…
One dot I can’t quite connect is that the director of prisons, Carvajal, was put on the no-travel list. Why? is this
for how the Maria Butina affaire was handled? Obviously, some very cynical folks were involved and at one point, for no reason, she was thrown into solitary confinement which could not have been done without Carvajal’s agreement. These people are sick beyond comprehension. I wish someone would translate her book into English and circulate it.
You can bet that the Russians know the entire plot that killed the ambassador and you can count on vengeance and justice will be taken in due time.
Russia keeps an open book on all these ‘transactions’. You kill them, they will kill you. It takes time, but they do it.
The Russian SVR and GRU as well as FSB have deep sources in Turkey. Nothing is secret to them. After all, they uncovered the CIA-Gulen plot against Erdogan and save his ass.
Killing an ambassador so brazenly was thought beyond the pale. Using a shooter in a museum setting certainly was unimaginable until that tragic day.
But it shows how crazed and psycho the CIA has become.
Russia has its tradecraft and protects all aspects of state policy. So, we will have the resolution told to us when it is the right time know it.
Planning to kill lukashenko means that escalation with Russia and thus war is more a “when” than a “if”.
The United States has a long history of assassinating foreign leaders. I think Putin stated in the Oliver Stone interview that he had survived 23 assassination attempts. Maybe Washington will be held accountable for this for once.
The Czechs were also involved in another deception; after 9/11 they claimed there was a meeting in Prague between Atta and some Iraqis, as I recall.
The United States has a long history of assassinating its own leaders.
Some say the Zapruder film is a wake up call for those who said they would rock the boat.
I think the assassination of JFK was the beginning of the end for the U.S. He wasn’t perfect, but after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, he vowed to end the CIA and also intended to leave Vietnam. This was the showdown between the forces for a somewhat decent/less indecent foreign policy and the sociopaths. The sociopaths won thanks to the assassination and it has been a disaster since then with U.S. sponsored coups and atrocities all over the world. The U.S. government is full of war criminals.
We are laughing with the Russians too.
The insanity here in the USA is off the charts.
It’s quiet in most places in the USA, but of course, media focuses on the most psychopathic paid provocateurs.
Many Americans, including myself,
jokingly ask for China or Russia to drop a bomb and level this place.
I remember hearing such jokes from Russians in Russian Movies.
In all seriousness, the sociopathic overlords are clearly desperate and quite frankly,
that’s what makes this all so dangerous for all of us.
Not enough resources for the billionaires and it seems they are even killing each other off
like they did Petr Kellner last month and then Richard Lexington Sutton.
When they start killing each other off, prepare for the worst.
With everything to lose, the evil ones only seem to understand blood and war to settle their stomachs.
Hoping that Russian and American troops can come together and give the NWO the proverbial middle finger.
p.s. Yes, the general public in the USA is retarded, but nobody I know sees Russia as an enemy.
The only enemy Americans have is our own government.
Well, the shit in indeed hitting the fan…
Czech prime minister denies Russia relationship with the explosions in Vrbetice
Prague authorities demand that Russian Embassy vacate area of 5,000 square meters
The Czech PM confirmed that the two depots were rented to certain Emilian Gebrev a Bulgarian citizen involved in weapons deals. In this dirt from 2014 had to be involved Czech regime puppets as the Bulgarian scummer needed export warrants for exports. Probably he was stripping arms their markers, too. The arms were supposed to be sold ISIS in Syria and Ukronacis.
Well, that would place the unbiquitous Petrov and Boshirov as People´s Heros….
“Did the US just try to murder Lukashenko?”
Following the script outlined by Perkins in his Confessions of an Economic Hitman, the three stage process against ‘uncooperative regimes’ is ‘popular protest with democratic replacement’, bribery of the leader, and assassination of the leader. With Russian help, Lukashenko foiled the stereotypical color-coded regime change operation. Then Lukashenko rejected a $1 billion bribe via World Bank funding to go along with the Covid Scam. That leaves stage three – permanent physical removal. The CIA has a game plan and they always stick to it.
So the answer is – yes.
Here is my translation of the full video of the conversation released by the FSB. I mostly used the original captions on the video, with some small edits here and there. https://www.mk.ru/politics/2021/04/18/fsb-opublikovala-polnoe-video-peregovorov-zenkovicha-i-feduty.html
Zyankovich: Task #1 is to eliminate the main one in charge. Task #2 — block the internal troops, block OMON [Special Purpose Police Unit]. Task #3 — occupy several symbolic objects in the city center, including the radio station and the television, so that we can deliver a message. It would be preferable, too, to cordon off Minsk to prevent external troops from entering.
X: So, roughly speaking, the main goal of this entire enterprise, the main one, is physical elimination?
Zyankovich. Yes! The guys reported to me, the day before yesterday literally, that, if necessary, there is a way to block the entyre Belorussian power grid.
Feduta: At least 30 people also… must be interned literally within the first hour. Which means that, well, part of them are just Ministry of Internal Affairs people, state security [“ГБ”= KGB], and part civilians.
Feduta: The prime minister becomes an acting president automatically, which means he must be interned, as well as the leadership of the KGB, of Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the Investigative Committee.
Zyankovich: House of Representatives.
Zyankovich: All the personal information about them… our guys hacked the servers of MIA, KGB, Investigative Committee. Downloaded all the databases. We’ll provide all the personal data.
Zyankovich: I will be responsible for the legal reform. So, accordingly, for the oversight of the Ministry of Justice, courts, and the development of the new constitution.
Feduta: And the parliament.
Zyankovich: And the parliament, yes.
Feduta: We’ll be supervising the political reform, ideological departments, press, ministry of culture, ministry of education, party system and the Central Election Comission.
Zyankovich: We come [to power] for 5 years, roughly speaking. Our task is to transform the society and the government. Because if we held the elections now, instead of Lukashenko people would elect another Lukashenko. And we’ll get more of the same for another 25 years.
Feduta: A state council will be created, comprising of the leaders of all registered parties. This is the task for the ministry of justice.
Zyankovich: I believe that the cultivation of democracy, as the example of Poland showed, should begin with the local government. That is the first reform that has to be enacted: change in the constitution, so that we can have local governance.
Zyankovich: We are spreading the information around all these satellite [literally “orbital,” which can also mean “peripheral”] channels that we have a group of guerillas, with weapons and bases, in order to maximally distract the attention of the regime [“сведущие”]. Because what [she] blabbed about regarding the 9th of may, that, like, tanks will come… [Note: here it is actually hard to hear what Zyankovich is saying and the official captioning omits part of a sentence]
Zyankovich: Out suggestion, in general, is to forbid anyone who acted as ministers under Lukashenko to serve in such capacities for about twenty five years.
Zyankovich: I had a call in Warsaw yesterday from one of our friends. “Listen, Yuras, what kind of contacts have we got left in Ukraine? I am planning on going there, and it would be good to go through those contacts.”
Zyankovich: I am practically certain that out Sasha [Lukashenko] has a stash somewhere [“кошелек с запасом”], which should be simply taken, quietly, if an opportunity presents itself.
X: If the opportunity presents itself, sure, but where is it?
Zyankovich: At home, most likely, in Ostroshitsky. And it won’t be accounted for.
Thank you very much!
This brings a lot of additional information. This together with the official statement from RF’s government mean that we are now officially in a state of war. Up to now it was unofficial and on the surface it was presented as though we are in peace. Now, since the RF points out officially from high level that this is what happened and that that it is something provably ordered from high in the US leadership, this amounts to recognizing a state of war.
From here, no coming back is possible except after a major transformation in the western leadership. Simply negotiations would not resolve this. Russia officially has no hope for things to improve and no motivation to sustain relations with the west. The upgraded version of the Cold War has started.
Well, the Czech story is true. The Czech intelligence services found Putin’s personal instructions to Petrov and Boshirov on how to carry out the attack.
Just for peace of mind, being no spammer
The Czech PM confirmed that the two depots were rented to certain Emilian Gebrev, a Bulgarian citizen involved in weapons deals. In this dirt from 2014 had to be involved Czech government members and regime puppets as the Bulgarian scummer needed export warrants for his dubious exports. Probably he was stripping arms of their markers, too. The arms were supposed to be sold ISIS in Syria and Ukronacis. All covered by CIA, becasuse for the Czech CIA puppets it had to be bridge too far
Czech PM Babiš, in fact he is a Slovak and oligarch, is a Emil Hácha 2.0 of protektorart 1.0 Very noncoopertive as ti Fuehrer whenever possible, like rabbit trying to find proper hole for hidding her ass..
Well, what would you expect? After all Tom Clancy believes that “Russians don’t even take a dump without a plan” [The Hunt for Red October]. Or what about the Margarita Simonyan video satirically depicting Putin as a control freak who interferes in everything: a kind of Dr. Evil with a hundred hands & feet.
And fifty cats that he can pet while twiddling his other fifty pinkies next to his lips in the international gesture of evil. Look it up. It’s in the UN Charter.
I, and some analysts out there, wonder whether in the end, this is all about saving face with regard the vaccines disaster and what the West understand as a goldd opportunity for Russia to improve its image before the Western population…
The Czech Republic was one of the first in talking about producing the Russian vaccine in its soil some weeks ago, even before the Austrians did it…
All of a sudden, when it received the first batch of vaccines, some at official level claimed the vaccines were not of expected quality, with the Russians claiming then for the vaccines to be sent back to be offered to other interested people…
In spite of the vaccination effort. with the Western population going to vaccinate themselves more or less in mass like cattle to get the shot, some over full panic broadcasted 24/7 through the news, others for fear of losing their jobs, way of life, rights, and freedom of movement, as they have been menaced by some officials at several Western countries will happen soon to them, the Western countries are experiencing their higuest wave of the pandemic, with numbers superior even to those of the first one, what points clearly to the ineffectiveness of these experimental medical products which, in addition, are causing unacceptably ( for a vaccine being used in healthy people ) serious and numerous side effects…
On the other hand, you have the the Sputnik V vaccine is performing even better than expected, with data published today, over some millions vaccinated around the world of a 97,6 % effectivity…
Of course, they can not afford the population being aware of this or trust the Russians in anything, not when there is a multibillion perpetual business ( in the case of the Western vaccines that the producers say the people will have to take every 6 months, or every year…) at play, and when this vaccine is being willingly, and in comparison with the others for way too long time, denied the approval by the EMA….
Will not the West go to war at risk of losing the confidence of their populations and seeing the Russians gaining some quite abundant diplomatic points?
In this scenario, a whole breaking out of diplomatic relations by the US/UK ( just the main producers of the other expensive vaccines…just Pfizer and Moderna plan to increase the cost of next doses in a 900%…) and some little puppets newbies in the East is worth the intent…
Another thing they can not afrord is that the West population knows that the Russian vaccine is one of the cheapest, that the Russians do not plan to profit from it raising the price stratosferically next year, and thus that the multibillion funds to be spent in the Western products in a post-pandemic ruinous scenario could be employed on more needed accute problems.., like paying subsides to the army of new poor….
Everybody needs money now…
Merkel and Macron held talks on achieving the Russian vaccine some weeks ago…Today Macron is saying, i nany case, the Russian vaccine will arrive too late as they can not use it until approved by the EMA…
willingly ignoring he can, if needed approve it at national level, as they can do all EU members, like Spain, Italy, Germany and so on…
The Russians, as a countermove, should hold a poll through the whole EU to show which is the number of people who would take their vaccine instead the Western ones
In the Eastern European countries at least there is a majority who would take it, and in the Western ones, if they are not, it is becuase they have not done their homework and have informed themsleves through TV and media…
I for one will take the Russian vaccine, or will take none, with all its consequences. I am seriously considering travelling to wherever to take it in case my government will make my life impossible here if I do not take “their” jab. In fact, I am fed enough with all this shenanigans even to the extent of considering not returning from wherever in case of necessity…as things are taking here ( EU ) the ugly and oppresive color of the first times of the Nazi Reich.. even worst already…I a, definitely late…
If it is war, I would not like being placed in the wrong side, as always antifascist.
I WILL NOT BE in the side of nazi Ukraine….and its palmeros…ever…
It was only last year that Belarus and Russia were having a spat over the discount rate for Russian oil and petroleum products. It got to the point where Lukashenko was actively courting the West for purchases of oil. When Russia and Belarus came to terms is when the election protests startwd. Then it was the alleged coup plot where 33 Russian mercenaries were attested. Now it’s an assassination attempt.
Some of these events may have happened anyway in an attempt to drive a wedge between Russia and Belarus, particularly the election protests. However, it was plain to see that the timeline begins when Lukashenko momentarily turned to the West, much as Yanukovich did in Ukraine with European association. This time, however, the result couldnt be more different and now Lukashenko will be meeting with Putin this Thursday. Look for an even deeper alliance between the two as a result.
In any context, but especially in the context of the current situation in Ukraine, this is a big win for Putin.
For those here who insist this means war is inevitable or likely or soon, you don’t understand that this breaks the plot to fore Russia to make an invasion, to fight a regional war against six nations, not just spanking Ukies in Donbass or north of Crimea.
Read Ishchenko link I posted above.
Putin has prevented war. The US backed off and will stay backed off until the summit happens or is officially rejected by Putin.
Biden is confused that Putin had the goods on him for the attempted murderous coup in Belarus. He will understand that the SVR has the goods on the other nations that would join Ukraine and attack the Russians in a wider war.
Why have we been hearing so many quotes lately from Nicolai Patrushev, head of the Security Council? Because these were signals to the smart few in the West that the Russians knew what was coming and the “decision makers”, those smart few along with the psychotic many, would be struck with missiles for their perfidy when the shooting started.
This plot against Belarus is shocking news. Imagine a mass slaughter of Lukashenko and military leaders in public and then the subsequent murder of Luka’s family, and probably many hundreds more officials in the military, special services, and government. All this unleashing in coordination with a “Russian aggression” in Ukraine and then Belarus, too, and fighting in Georgia, the Baltics, Kaliningrad, Abkhazia, South Ossetia. With NATO forces already forward placed on the move toward Russia. A struggle for air dominance.
Swarms of drones and missiles in all directions over the Black Sea and Ukraine and Russian.
It would be but a few hours before tactical nukes would be used. And then what?
The insanity of this American plot is unprecedented.
But its exposure means Russia will not be at war over Ukraine.
Putin has Biden and NATO where he wants them. The only other “player” he needs to pin down is the UK.
This is also an object lesson for the Chinese. They see how Russian Intel penetrated the coup and rolled it up with perfect timing to debilitate the US war plot to go with the coup plot.
It also exposes to many other leaders of countries the US is courting like they did with Luka last year that if you don’t accept their hegemony, they’ll murder you and your family and take your country as booty.
Shocking? The Ukrops installed by CIA intended to permanently eliminate Yukashenko. That too was fortunately foiled by Russia’s rescue plan. It is what the CIA do – Iraq, Libya, Iran, countless leaders in South America and Africa. They even had a man present at Gadaffi’s murder filming the incident for Hillary ‘We came, we saw, he died’ Clinton’s personal enjoyment.
Rostislav Ischenko wrote,“Since Moscow made it clear that in the event of a Ukrainian attack, it would not show restraint, it made no sense to throw Ukraine into battle – it would have been wiped out before the Americans had time to start implementing their plan.”
So Russia will only engage the UAF across the Ukrainian western border and northern border of Crimea if the UAF advances across the lines of contact of Donbass and/or Crimea with battle tanks and ground forces. The area becomes a temporary cease-fire zone like the 38th parallel that separates the two Koreas. The question is, how long will the UAF wait as good weather approaches the region?
The rest of Ischenko’s article spoke of the several plots planned by the US to draw Russia into a confrontation due to Navalny supporters in the country and in Georgia with Saakashvili, the troublemaker that have been thwarted with the FSB interception of the plot in Belarus.
However he wrote in his last paragraph, “Nevertheless, the danger has not yet passed. The last days of April will be critical not only for Belarus and Russia, but also for Europe and the world as a whole. The US may still try to slam the door loudly.”
I see another way the US can provoke Russia to act is through NATO’s presence in Ukraine. NATO currently has ground forces including U.S. military advisors embedded with the UAF along the lines of contact in Donbass and north of Crimea. If NATO installs ground-to-ground missile launchers pointed at Russia, I think she has no choice but to remove them as they are a clear threat.
This only reaffirms what is for a long time a very logical conclusion: since western public is on sheep-level and incapable of logical thinking, the only right thing for Russia to do, when ukronazis attack DLNR, is to simply overrun whole of the Ukraine, eliminate complete fascist leadership with precision strikes, leave aside small reservation around Lvov to expel all russophobes there, and instill fear in sheeple all over the ‘western civilization’.
This will immediately result in following:
1. Sheeple in the ‘west’ will realize that they are not living in protected bubble, but in a world with real and immediate consequences. No more FB warriors.
2. Sheeple in the ‘west’ will therefore be REALLY scared and will protest every time their governments try to do some provocative action toward Russia federation.
3. ‘Leaders’ of the western prison states will also realize that there is a price to pay for conducting agressive and belligerent acts against RF.
4. Mass waves of peace movements will suddenly appear all over the west, asking for immediate improvement of relations with RF. Already seen during Vietnam era, when body bags were coming back in tens of thousands.
When one finally realize that he deals with sheeple, than one must act accordingly. Means use big stick and sharp orders.
Hopefully Russian leadership realizes that and will act accordingly.
This story in Czechia was supposed to be activated perhaps later (reason: stop Sputnik V and stop the nuclear power plant), but an order from the US Embassy hastened this story. Weapons from Vrbětice were supposed to be sent to terrorists in Syria allegedly. The arms route led through Bulgaria.
The prime minister of the state said it was not an attack on the state, but on goods. Did Russian agents prevent the supply of weapons for terrorists?
There was also an explosion at another ammo dump in the same city (Vrbětice) a few weeks later, on December 3. The first explosion was on October 16, 2014. Both sites were rented by IMEX Group.
The 2 men accused of being involved were reported to have left the country the day of the first explosion, as reported by the BBC. No mention of them returning in December and so far no accusations regarding the December explosion.
Indeed, as the Ukrainian offensive was launshed to stop NS II an condition next Garman elections.
A story released in a hurry…perhaps to counter the news of the failed assassination plot on Lukashenko ..
The Vrbětice ammo depots were rented by certain Emilian Gebrev the holder of Bulgarian passport. The guns were bound to ISIS and Ukronacis, all tis scum covered by Czech corrupted regime and local CIA servants. Current Czech PM confirmed that the ammo depots had been rented by that said Bulgarian. Or rather the holder of the Bulgarian passport.
Bellingcat reports: Two Russian agents have wiped out dinosaurs
With RF forces now on the west border of Ukraine and the Black Sea coast and also in Crimea, it’s looking like Russia is positioned to annex the whole of Ukraine. I wonder if Putin will announce this, and his reasoning for it, on the 21st. I hope so. The Nazis and NATO need to be blocked/removed from this land, because it’s obvious they want to use it to threaten Russia existentially.
Maybe it’s too much to hope for but I would really like it if they published the transcript of the conversation between “Biden” and Putin. Total bombshell.
Note something interesting: the projection that comes out of the empire. “Biden” calls Putin a “killer” while they were planning to assassinate Lukashenko. They give away a lot out of their plans and thinking because of this toxic projection and slander. So stupid and immature, and malevolent.
It’s actually quite informative to watch the mode of attack they project out in the anti-Russian media (it doesn’t need to be extreme, moderately anti-Russian is already good enough).
I remember, while reading an article during the UA maidan , and article which was not pro-Russian but not extremely anti-Russian, how it become clear that Crimea will be back to Russia even before it happened.
I heard “Biden” with his weird “killer” qualification and also watched on some pro-“Biden” talk shows how they explain Putin getting rid of uncomfortable people. Then, I started thinking: “Do these people plan to kill someone and who?” From another development I was under impression that they plan to re-attack Belarus since it is seen as a somewhat sensitive location for Russia. Yet, I lacked the capacity to connect those two things, while FSB doesn’t seem to lack such capacity at all.
They often plan to do what they blame you. Now they blame RF about those explosions. Maybe we need to prepare for such activities. They blame hacking, prepare for that. They will be putting effort to interfere in Russian elections. They blamed Trump for interference in relation with Ukraine, that’s exactly what they did with “Biden” and will do. They blamed Russia for the INF treaty violation, that’s what they did themselves actually. They blamed conservatives for insurrection and election theft, that’s what Democrats did and plan to do. The lie about bounties for US soldiers is admitting that they paid bounties for Russian soldiers.
They just go and think what would be a terrible thing to say about our adversary to paint them in black as evil, and they find the inspiration by looking at what they did themselves. Comes to tell you that deep inside they know they are acting evil and they are doing it deliberately.
They also project out their fears: threatening to exclude RF from the SWIFT (fear), “Biden” threatening that Putin would pay a price (fear), threatening with nukes (fear), claiming total military superiority (fear and knowledge that they are inferior), they claim that Russia is about to go bankrupt and has bad economy (fear and their own knowledge of their situation), etc.
Oooh, can’t wait for Rachel Maddow to roll her eyes and wiggle her head as she tells us all about it.
She’s a horrible human being, by the way. Liars suck, but paid liars suck hardest of all.
With her sanctimonious smile, her lies and people on all sides die. She got people killed.
Not a word in the German media
All known details about the foiled coup in Belarus
In Belarus, an armed and bloody coup was planned with the support of Western intelligence services, which was blown on Saturday. Western media are completely silent on the subject and they have good reasons for doing so.
But it is also too embarrassing what became known on Saturday, the Anti-Spiegel reported about it briefly that day . The details of the plan for the foiled coup were released on Sunday.
US and Polish secret services have financed Belarusian exiles in planning an armed uprising in Belarus. The coup plans have been exposed by the secret services of Russia and Belarus. The main coup plotters were arrested at a conspiratorial meeting in Moscow. The Russian secret service filmed the meeting with hidden cameras, and parts of the footage have since been made public. They show the ruthlessness with which the putschists supported by the West wanted to proceed.
An armed uprising with many dead, the murder of President Lukashenko and his family and even the shutdown of the Belarusian electricity grid were planned. It is hard to imagine what consequences such a blackout in the closely interwoven European power grid would have had on neighboring countries.
The putschists discussed all of this and the recordings were published. The West cannot deny any of this, so the Western media have (so far) consistently kept silent about the topic. Even on Sunday evening, hours after all of this was shown again in detail on the Russian program “Nachrichten der Woche”, there was not a single report about it in Germany.
Apparently the editorial offices of the “quality media” are still thinking about how to convey this story in such a way that in the end Belarus and Russia are the bad guys. We can look forward to the results of the creative work of the “quality journalists”,
I have translated the report of the Russian broadcast and I recommend that you take a look at the report, because together with my translation you can easily understand it even without knowledge of Russian. In the translation I have marked all the conversations of the putschists published by the Russian secret service in italics for better understanding .
Start of translation:
Two representatives of the radical Belarusian opposition who were preparing an armed uprising in Minsk to eliminate Alexander Lukashenko, occupy radio and television centers, and block the security forces and police, were arrested in Moscow.
That would sound like a fantasy if this plan had not been worked out by very well-known and easily recognizable people: Alexander Feduta and Juras Sjankovich. Alexander Feduta is Belarusian. Juras Sjankovich has dual citizenship of Belarus and the United States. ( Note from the translator: These are actually well-known people, Feduta is a former companion of Lukashenko and was once his press spokesman and Sjankovich is a well-known opposition politician )
It is clear that the plan should be carried out with the support of Western intelligence agencies. But the sheer simplicity with which the armed uprising in Minsk and the assassination of the head of state were planned is surprising. In the past, people were at least brought onto the streets to camouflage, so that it somehow looked like a revolution that could be given any color. The people allegedly rebelled. But this time, after the revolution in Belarus didn’t work out, it was decided to take the shortcut and organize an armed uprising and an assassination attempt. And the revolution? The revolution will come later.
What was planned and how did those who planned it talk about it? And how did it turn out?
A report by Vitali Karmasin.
These pictures show the imprisonment of the American-Belarusian lawyer with dual citizenship of Jura or Yuri Sjankovich. FSB officers lead him away. He was arrested in Moscow with Alexander Feduta, political scientist and former press spokesman for the Belarusian president. One lived in Moscow. The second only came for a few days to discuss the coup in Minsk at a secret meeting with an alleged Belarusian officer. ( Editor’s note: FSB is the Russian secret service . The Belarusian officer was a decoy .)
“According to information we received from the Belarusian partners, the ideologues of the radical Belarusian opposition, Sjankovich and Feduta, organized the plan of an armed uprising in Belarus in private chats of a messenger service and decided to hold a face-to-face meeting in Moscow availed themselves of the measures of secrecy “, it says in a statement of the FSB.
The meeting took place in the Korchma restaurant on the Moscow Garden Ring. You have rented a separate VIP room. The conversation started at an empty table. But Fedut and Sjankovich immediately showed their appetite to murder Lukashenko.
Sjankovich : “Task number one is to remove the most important thing. Task number two is to block the OMON security forces. Task number three is to occupy several important objects in the city center, including the radio station and the television station, so that we can read out statements. And it would be desirable to seal off Minsk so that no external troops can be called in. ” (Translator’s note: OMON is the anti-terrorist police force in Russia and Belarus)
The armed insurrection seems to have been carefully prepared. Among the goals were to occupy the information infrastructure, disorient the troops, but first and foremost was the elimination of the Commander-in-Chief and his family.
“You planned to kidnap my children, one or both, depending on the situation,” said Lukashenko.
Feduta and Sjankovich even brought a list of people who hold the highest positions in the authorities of Belarus to the meeting in the restaurant. It was planned to turn them off or take them to a concentration camp.
Feduta: “At least another 30 people have to be interned in the first hour. That means some of them are from the security forces, some are officials. The incumbent Prime Minister automatically takes over the duties of the President, which is why the heads of the KGB, the Interior Ministry and the investigative authority must be interned. ”
Sjankovich : “And the assembly of deputies.”
They had obtained the necessary information about the officers from hackers.
Sjankovich : “Our boys pulled all of their personal data from the servers of the Ministry of the Interior, the KGB and the investigative authorities. We sucked off all the data. We provide the personal data. ”
Feduta and Sjankovich expected military support from the generals. The plan should be implemented by force of arms. According to the FSB, this meeting took place after appropriate consultations with Sjankovich in the United States and Poland.
“What surprises me: Why do Americans behave this way? Eventually the order was given to eliminate a president. Nobody except the top political leadership can approve that. Only they can do it, secret services cannot do it alone. Only they can do it, ”says Belarusian President Lukashenko with certainty.
According to investigators, the organizers planned to win nationalists from Kiev to prepare for the coup.
During dinner, Sjankovich explained that there were plans to involve foreigners from Warsaw and Kiev in the preparation of the coup.
Sjankovich : “I had a phone call with one of our friends in Warsaw yesterday. Listen to Juras, what other contacts do we have in Ukraine? I want to go there and talk to them all. ”
A month ago, the head of the Belarusian KGB, Ivan Tertel, said that terrorist groups that were hiding in Poland and Ukraine had just been tracked down. These gangs regularly cross the Belarusian border and have set up secret weapons hiding places and prepared terrorist attacks. ( Note from the translator: I saw the reports, but due to lack of time I did not report on them at the time . Sometimes I cannot report on everything, which is unfortunately inevitable in a one-man operation. )
“We see large quantities of weapons from Ukraine being brought onto our territory to further destabilize the situation. Several so-called political migrant centers are currently active abroad; these are subversive centers in which the so-called refugees work. They are maintained by foreign secret services through various NGOs that are financed by the secret services, ”said Tertel.
The head of the KGB named Grigori Kostusev, the leader of the BPF, one of the oldest Belarusian parties, as one of the recipients of the funds. Kostusev has repeatedly taken part in insurgent meetings. As a rule, they took place online, because almost all of the defendants have long since fled Belarus.
Sjankovich : “Grigori, the question is the following, Grigori, you make sure that Luka (Lukashenko) is flattened, and who will then rule Belarus, we will decide later.”
Kostusev: “If we can decide who will, yes.”
All three prisoners – Kostusev, Sjankovich and Feduta – have long been in the opposition. It started with the well-known rhetoric: the country is falling into disrepair, the government is stealing, the elections are unfair. Kostusev did not recognize the election result. He later stated in an interview that partisan war was imminent.
Kostusev: “If it takes too long, there is only this option. I don’t see any other options. ”
Journalist: “We already know that you will be brigadier general on this front.”
Kostusev: “Thank you for the trust.”
Lawyer Yuri Sjankovich lived in Poland for 10 years, in the United States for 9 years, and in 2016 he suddenly decided to be elected to the Belarusian parliament by Kostusev’s party. In the past few months he has openly called for a military mutiny.
Sjankovich: ” You need violence to win!”
The third is Alexander Feduta. Together with Lukashenko, he led Lukashenko’s election campaign in 1994. Then he worked as the press secretary of the Belarusian president. He was responsible for contacts with journalists, sometimes very expressive.
Feduta later became a critic of Lukashenko. And 27 years later he prophesied the fate of Anwar Sadat, who was shot by terrorists in a parade, or that of the executed Saddam Hussein. And in the Moscow restaurant he discussed the best way to kill his former boss, the Belarusian president.
“Roughly speaking, is the first goal of the whole event, the very first, its physical destruction?”
Sjankovich : “Yes. The guys just reported to me yesterday that – if necessary – the power supply for the whole of Belarus can be switched off. ”
The promised support shows that powerful forces and a lot of money were involved in the project. And it wasn’t just planned since yesterday. All three arrested have actively supported the illegal rallies in Belarus last year. Yuri Sjankovich even spent 10 days in custody for participating in these actions.
The conspirators have obviously been waiting for spring. They hoped for a continuation of last year’s events. After all, such illegal actions are just one of the elements of “color revolutions”. And of course such secret meetings.
In 2012, Georgian politician Givi Targamadze discussed funding from London with Sergei Udalzov in an equally secluded atmosphere in order to destabilize the situation in Moscow. And the Ukrainian Maidan picked up pace as Western funds poured in and promises of further financial aid to the opposition were made.
But the “color revolution” did not work out in Belarus. Everyone has already forgotten Tichanovskaya and almost no one came to the first protests at the end of March. Then the opposition decided to proceed according to a different plan called “Tischina” (silence) and to arrange a bloody coup. They planned to act either on Belarusian independence or on Victory Day, when tank units pass by in the square in front of Lukashenko and the guests of the parade.
Sjankovich : “We are now rattling all the canals around the area. We have partisan groups with weapons stores. To do this, we have to ensure maximum distraction. Because with what is planned for May 9th, there are tanks. ”
They said it would take them at least five years to transform society and the state. After the armed uprisings and murders, Belarus should become an incubator for the cultivation of democracy. In cultivation, they wanted to focus on the experiences from Poland.
Sjankovich : “If elections take place now, then a Lukashenko will be elected again instead of Lukashenko. And then it goes on for another 25 years. ”
Feduta: “A State Council will be set up in which all the leaders of the registered parties will sit. That is the job of the Ministry of Justice. ”
Sjankovich : “I think democracy should be cultivated according to the Polish example, with local self-government.”
The ultimate goal was to reform the constitution, disempower the president and set up a national reconciliation committee.
Sjankovich and Feduta have already shared the roles in the beautiful Belarus of the future.
Sjankovich : “I will be responsible for the legal reform. Accordingly, I will lead the Ministry of Justice, the courts, the drafting of a new constitution and the parliament ”
Feduta: “We will dominate the political reforms, the ideological ministries, the press, the ministry of culture, the ministry of education, the party system and the election commission.”
And at the end of the meeting, the fathers of Belarusian democracy offered the generals a classic robbery. ( Note from the translator: As a reminder: the putschists thought the Belarusian general present was on their side and wanted to motivate the generals with the prospect of dividing Lukashenko’s presumed private assets among the generals. )
Sjankovitsch : “I’m almost certain that our Alex (Lukashenko) has a wallet with reserves somewhere. You can take this opportunity. ”
“On occasion, yes. But where does he have it? ”
Sjankovich: “Probably at home. That is not noticed. ”
After a busy lunch, both Feduta and Sjankovich were arrested. As soon as they stopped answering calls, the opposition Belarusian media reacted immediately. Some even went so far as to claim that the Belarusian secret services had kidnapped Feduta and Sjankovich directly from Moscow.
“I believe this is a blow to the bilateral legal framework, because with no trial, no normal extradition procedures, no evidence, the Belarusian intelligence services illegally kidnapped people on the territory of Russia and brought them to Belarus,” said political analyst Dmitri Bolkunin.
In fact, the suspects were arrested by Russian FSB officers. So Yuri Sjankovich was placed near an apartment building in the north of the capital. The American lawyer rented a small room here. The quiet place in a dormitory was apparently chosen for the purpose of the conspiracy. It didn’t help.
The FSB handed the detainees over to their colleagues from Belarus as part of the bilateral agreement. By the way, Yuri Sjankovich immediately started threatening the investigator with complaints from the US State Department. Now the suspect is in the KGB prison in Minsk. There are also Alexander Feduta and Grigori Kostusev. According to the Belarusian Criminal Code, they face up to 12 years in prison. Each of them.
End of translation
Sjankovich : “Our boys pulled all of their personal data from the servers of the Ministry of the Interior, the KGB and the investigative authorities. We sucked off all the data. We provide the personal data.
As this Sjankovich is clearly the US guy, a fully reocgnition of whom hacks government servers around the world…
That of the internment camps, plus the fact that they were planning the magnicide for Victory Day, points out at the clear nazi inclinatioon of these operatives and that of their masters…
Any antifascist in Europe still not full yaware after the Ukraine coup, or in Babia during that nazi coup, should realize now with this reaffirming disclosure….
Thanks for posting. One wonders if or how Russia can follow up against the Polish and Ukraine supporters now identified….hopefully publicly to be named and shamed and their governments to be held accountable as participants .
The US is not what it used to be..staging coups, these are not the macho 1960s or 1980s anymore, this is the social media lgbt generation.
Bellingcat were the ones who “solved” the Czech ammunition depot explosion.
Bellingcat was also leading the JIT team investigating the downing of MH17. You can find on youtube a statement by the JIT team where they refer to (and use) social media EVIDENCE COLLECTED BY BELLINGCAT and giving Bellingcat a tap on their shoulder for the good investigative work!!
Lukashenko says Putin-Biden talked about alleged US-led assassination plot.
“I’ll tell you more. I am grateful to Putin. When he was talking with Biden, he asked him this question. Gurgling and no answer. Vladimir Vladimirovich [Putin] called me and told me about this when I arrived from Azerbaijan,” he added.
“Gurgling and no answer”
Well played! This whole failed regime change is beyond embarrassing for Biden and co.
I wonder how they will get their revenge? The Czech story is only the beginning… Rosatom was eliminated from the tender on building a nuclear plant, rollout for Sputnik V in Czech Republic has been scuttled.
What’s next ? A new smear campaign? More sanctions ?
Normandy talks have broken down..https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/normandy-format-talks-ukraine-end-without-results-source-2021-04-19/
So there doesn’t seem to be a path for escalation in Ukraine..
Caught with their hands in the cookie jar.
Saker is wise.
Well thank God for Russia…
The empire is driven by fixed ideas which seem unchangeable: The winner-loser logic, the with-or-against-me logic, the manifest-destiny logic, the exceptionnalism logic, the delenda-est-Carthago logic and so on. The empire is based on unleashed global resources exploitation, a world financial monopoly, world maritime trade control, an hegemonic cultural ideology as well as a military threatening presence in the five continents. They just cannot stand the idea of being excluded from the exploitation of Siberia and the huge Chinese market. “They’re not” someone will claim. But that is not the point. They want absolute control, total submission, no challengers at sight. Again, the “there can be only one” motto.What we’re seeing is a revival of the XIX Century’s Big Game scheme, which resulted in the collapse of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union empire. Putting pressure on the adversary by means of neverending wars finally paid off. TWICE !!! Why shouldn´t it work now ??? After all, the USSR was defeated, wasn´t it?
The Russian strategists, persitently refraining from a dog-eat-dog encounter, seem to have finally got it. They don’t want an expansionist policy but a developping one instead. Moreover, the Russian containment policy is proving to be very effective. Actually, the fact that Russia still exists as a state after the Yeltsin years, is kind of a miracle. Soon after Yeltsin’s death, they were able to deactivate the islamist empire-led threat in the Caucasus and the Middle East. The Far East front is a lake of peace.The Caspian and Central Asian fronts are secured now by means of a promising and rapidly developping network of trade agreements and communication land and maritime routes, which is contributing to an imperial ever-growing exasperation. Thus, the empire is pushing where it can push, through its European vassals and its financial monopoly, trying to erode its enemy’s strengh, confidence in itself, inner stability, development projects, and will to fight.
This scheme was maybe good for a XIX and XX century contexts. But in the nuclear, spacial age, this can be extremely dangerous. Now, the empire’s inland territory can be fully and devastatingly reached by their enemy, and it literally makes them lose their composure. They need to urgently get rid of Russia, or at least make it suffer, bleed it dry, and the Eastern European front is today’s Russia’s softbelly.
We are to expect a hybrid multiple-front operation, including Belarus, the Donbass, Armenia and possibly Syria, together with a North Stream 2 closure and other major financial, biological, and psyop developments pertaining to the Big Reset money laundering racket. Russia will be of course blamed for everything as a way to justify skyrocketing arm budgets, civil rights suppression, wealth confiscation, medical dictatorship and all-out mayhem on the Western population. Russia should avoid taking the bait and be forced into a third war of attrition. Containing and postponing a direct confrontation in the West while progressing in the East could be a good synthesis for Russia in the coming years. But what about a nuclear provocation. Will Russia be able to hold its horses?
The Saker and Larchmonter445,
What do you both think of this? Pretty alarming as it comes from the empire side:
FAA Issues New “Flight Risk” Alert Over The Russia-Ukraine Border
I think it is prudent to keep airlines and aircraft away from potential war zones.
If it was urgent, the Russians would have notified the world aviation about it.
When time comes, a no fly zone will be set.
Thanks for your reply.
I was worried for a while that the empire have gone into terminal rage mode after getting caught pants down in their assassination plot & commanded their pet orcs to start a murdering spree using “partner” Erdogan’s Bayraktars, or with what’s still functioning of their Sukhois, or heaven forbid, with overpriced RAF F35B cannon fodder flying coffins.
So they were quite serious about launching a war against Crimu and the Donbassit it seems given the horrors they had planned for Beloruss.
Given the horrors they have planned and launched against their own populations through this pandemic, which I hope will be set for trial on genocide one day if a part of humanity worth the name survives, they are capable of anything…
Sorry, Andrej, here I have to talk a bit about Corona…
The whole Czech drama might have been prepared because of Sputnik V and just activated early due to the Moscow arrests. A tiny favour for Merkel.
Why? Because the Czech borderland is a big shopping zone for Germans, and if the Czech were to import Sputnik V, they would soon discover that they can turn it into a nice business to vaccine Germans. If the Russian vaccine were available in Czechia, Merkel’s whole policy of promoting the ‘German’ vaccine would tumble down. Do you believe there are vaccination flights to Russia with Lufthansa, and they are completely booked out? A lot of people don’t trust the available types. The Pfizer one (the ‘German’) uses an untested technology, and AstraZeneca is even completely banned in several European countries now (though not yet in Germany). If Merkel is talking about allowing Sputnik, that’s just fake. If she wanted it to be available, it would be just a phone call away; nothing happens in Brussels against Berlin.
People are really tired of the lockdown that takes place since November. Czechia would be overrun, if it had Sputnik. It’s tourism industry, which lived from medical tourism from Germany for a good part, would be revived instantaneously. And the queues at the Czech border would make a pubic opinion visible that has been kept invisible by MSM and the lockdown.
A catastrophe for Merkel, as this would force her to end her false game about Sputnik; well, it might even bring down the government.
So it comes in handy, if a stirring of antirussian sentiments prevents the use of Sputnik in Czechia and this hole stays plugged. At least until the Austrians…
A few days ago I watched the Jimmy Dore Show about ‘The funniest Russia-Gate Headlines of all time’, about Russia weaponizing squids and puppies… and today I read an article about Russia ‘using Sputnik V to sow discord in Europe’.
Hilarious. Merkel installed a regime of permanent emergency, her popularity suffers, and guilty are – the Russians.
So, yes, anything will be done to prevent a breakthrough of Sputnik into Europe.
VK has video of Hundreds of Russian Helicopters moving west….
Russia is moving Helos into place…
Great piece (theater?). During his circa 50 years in ‘public service’ Joe Biden never met a corporate interest, bank, insurance company, military contractor or war he did not support. Biden now presides over an Empire in terminal economic decline confronted with exploding deficits, endemic police violence and astronomically expensive, looming strategic debacles in Afghanistan (longest war in US history), Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. Joe Biden and the elite he represents view the China-Russia-Iran axis as an intolerable obstacle to US global hegemony and are preparing for [nuclear] war.
Thank you for clarifying a baffling event, specifically why go to Moscow to plan a coup in Bielorussia. On the same or similar issues, I think that your audience would much appreciate your assessment on the influence of the best among the chosen people on current Russian affairs. In particular their current presence in the Russian government, key agencies, banking etc.
Also considering that in Ukraine, the president, the prime minister and the oligarch who is behind the rise of the current president belong to the same ethnicity.
After reading “The History of the Marranos” I am led to believe the (best among the) chosen people to be capable of everything.
Why did they go to Moscow? Perhaps the plan was to create the impression that the coup was concocted by Moscow!
The Czech Ambassador to Moscow asks the government to consider triggering Art. 5 (Nato).
Machine translation of relevant parts:
You say you would be in favor of requesting activation of Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty. What would such a step lead to?
Article activation means “one for all, all for one”. If one member state of the North Atlantic Alliance is attacked, all other member states consider it to be attacked as well. So it is a demonstration that the Allies are in solidarity with you. It is probably difficult for us to imagine that we would succeed, because we have countries within the European Union and the North Atlantic Alliance that will not want to activate this article. We can name countries like Hungary or Turkey, which are members of NATO, then there is the southern wing. However, I would try it anyway.
But before the public call for the activation of Article 5, of course, I would first discuss this at the diplomatic level, say at the level of ambassadors within the Alliance. Jakub Landovský (Ambassador of the Czech Republic to NATO – editor’s note) should discuss this with colleagues and evaluate the extent to which we can count on support, and then consider whether to announce it publicly so that it does not seem like a embarrassment. Of course, it has to be prepared, but let’s just say there could be pressure – if the Alliance countries were willing to stand up for us, that would really say something.
I have no idea what Petr Kolář is implying. A joint NATO psyops campaign or a hot war? How shiny do they intend to lick their emperor’s boots?
The cited article, in machine translation, is well worth reading in its entirety. It contains what seems to be a set piece of opinion and claims by Petr Kolář, former ambassador to Russia and the USA (I guess he’s lost his job and found a gig with see eye eh?) “Set piece” sounds better than “propaganda”.
The claim that they have been attacked (in 2014!) by Ru…and that this “attack” is the basis for asking NATO “members” to consider art 5. Everyone ought to read both the treaty and the UN Charter. Art 5 is not “automatic”… Acheson did his best, but this article only requires members to consider the matter.
It seems that, even if art 5 is relevant, the NATO members would need UNSC permission to wage war. Surely the NATO treaty is in legalistic sense, irrelevant. NATO has no more authority than I do to make war.
Moreover, if NATO makes war without UNSC, it becomes (gasp!) a terrorist criminal group.
If Czeck have been attacked their remedy is to use the Security Council of the UN, as the Charter is the law that dominates.
But Czech Prime Minister says this is not a state terror attack…..just wants compensation. Seems like a whole load of different factions with many agendas under various “influences ” are in Czech government.
Regime change in Czech being generated and manipulated to be more confontational to Russia?
I would suggest that the US should focus on its internal domestic affairs. I am afraid the US is leading toward civil war. The hate, and discrimination is spreading rapidly.
Live and let others live a peaceful life.
With regards to Biden personally being capable of murdering foreign leaders, look no further than the leaders of the Donbass who were assassinated. Granted, Zakarchenko was murdered during Trump years. But the militia leaders “Mozgovoy” and “Motorola” were murdered under the Obama regime while Biden was in charge of Ukraine. Though some of them may have been murdered in internecine rivalry, Zakarchenko and Motorola definitely seem to have been killed by Ukrainian SBU or maybe MI6/CIA.
I was actually thinking the same thing and then much later there was that last guy – forgot his name – that was so Ukrainian – to kill a guy years after assassinating all his friends in cowardly ways -and then take him out too.
You mean Givi?
yes – I remembered his name right after I posted – that was so sick. As if they had anything to fear from that guy anymore.
It was a revenge killing and a cowardly act.
FSB did a remarkable job and keep them medals coming for their professionalism but letting this happen was criminal negligence at the time. There’s no other way to describe it.
but is it Russia’s job to protect men that don’t want to live in Russia ?
good to see you Mikhas !!
Good to see you to Ann!
Would everybody please calm down. Yes… the orders went out late at night from the White House. But the back story is they woke Joe Biden up from his third daily nap in the late afternoon and said they wanted to “take out” Lukashenko. Prez Biden thought take out was a great idea and said let’s do it. Then he asked for the Peking Duck and that wonton thing he used to get in Scranton, PA. A simple mistake. It’s all good, bros.
According to Bellingcat: Putin gave Borisov and Petrov (Skripal suspects) a medal for their successful Czech job (ammunition depot explosion in which 2 civillians died).
“the Russians who saved Erdogan from a US-backed coup which was also supposed to include Erdogan’s murder (the Turks practically admitted it publicly several times).”
Apologies if this has been discussed. This is clearly a notice of intent to escalate by false flag. In other words, it is a declaration that they intend to have a MI6 or CIA mole in the Russian prison service murder their failed colour revolution puppet, who is now geopolitically more useful dead than alive. From RT’s Telegram channel:
The WH warns should Navalny DIE in custody, Moscow “will be held accountable!”
The jailed Russian activist has been moved to a specialist hospital facility for convicts after a three-week hunger strike.
He has been protesting being refused permission to see a doctor of his choice for leg pains.
Supporters paint his condition as dire, however the Federal Penitentiary Service says Navalny is being examined daily and is in a “satisfactory” state of health.
The White House press sec Jen Psaki issued stark warning Monday – “What happens to Mr. Navalny in the custody of the Russian government is the responsibility of the Russian government,” Psaki said. “They will be held accountable by the international community.”
One might assume, same applies to Julian Assange then?
“What happens to Mr. Navalny in the custody of the Russian government is the responsibility of the Russian government,” This sentence trigger a question (I admit it is a far fetch assumption…): what if Navalny, during his stay in Germany, was “treated” with a deadly toxin, bug (whatever) with a slow progression but nevertheless deadly. Once in custody of the Russian government (everybody knew that he will be arrested and jailed) the government will be held accountable for his health/death…consequently the calls for his liberation (and a possible antidot administration) and in case of his death the media triggered hysteria would justify any sanctions against Russia ( a kind of Trojan horse…sort of..Navalny was not suppose to know anything about that plot). Stay safe!
What’s their game this time? Maybe Sullivan was ordered to stay put while they try to kill Navalny, for Sullivan to do a Maidan cookie rehash in Moscow? For a “USA the saviour of democracy” optics?
From the Sputnik Telegram channel:
“US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan is refusing to leave the country after the Kremlin “advised” him to return to Washington following new sanctions imposed by the Biden administration on Russia, Axios reports.”
I couldn’t find the original at Axios.
No game, I think. The Russians are watching Sullivan so closely they can probably tell what he usually has for breakfast.
It’s more of signalling. Sullivan, or rather his bosses, showing obstinacy — and betraying impotency — like a child sticking his tongue out at his adversary who’s got the better of him. Russia is signalling that it won’t deal any more with a diplomatic establishment that is headed by Blinken, whose grandparents came from the Ukraine and who was the prime mover of Maidan — Nuland’s boss at the time, in fact.
On substantive matters, I think we have reached a point where RF is resorting to military-to-military channels — where professionals on both sides understand the dangers of war infinitely more than those magnificently educated fools in the US political establishment who can’t differentiate Austria from Australia — in its dealings with the US; not long ago, even the aptly nicknamed general, Mad Dog Mattis, for all his belligerence towards the country, understood the consequences of a war with Iran and resisted Trump. Similar arrangements have worked before in Nagorno-Karabakh and are working still in Syria.
Nonetheless, RF has not slammed the diplomatic door shut tight — it could have declared Sullivan persona-non-grata and kicked him out. The fact that it didn’t shows RF is still willing to talk provided Sullivan brings something sensible from his bosses to the table.
Looks like the US had to cave in and Sullivan is now going back for consultations. Look at the wording “visiting family” and “meet members of the new administration”:
“…..US Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan will go to Washington this week for consultations with the Biden administration and will return to Moscow “in the coming weeks,” the Axios portal reported citing a US State Department spokesperson.
“Ambassador Sullivan will be returning to the U.S. this week to visit his family and meet with members of the new administration with whom he has not had a chance to consult since he agreed to continue serving in his post indefinitely,” a State Department spokesperson told Axios.
“He will return to Moscow in the coming weeks,” the spokesperson noted……”
Seems the message finally sunk in – wonder if he will be replaced and not return?
It is accurate to say “the governed masses have trouble understanding how clueless they (the governed masses are) are but the true-ly clueless are the reporters who report clueless-ness but who leave the uninformed clueless bunches to their blank minds. Yes, i know you don’t have access to the MSM so you can’t control what others have not taken the time to learn..<= its not your fault, <= but really it is. <= anyone who screams as you did "They (the governed masses) don’t even see how pathetic and clueless they really are" and leaves it at that.. is the true clueless, why bother to complain if there is no hope to fix the problem. why bother to complain if there is no solution to fix the problem?
Why state the obvious without a suggested fix.. ? For far too long I have listened to so called journalist tell us what is wrong, but none tell us how to fix the wrong. I suggest the narrative that includes the mere suggestion of how to fix the problem will educated the clueless.
I appreciate people like the Saker and Jimmy Dore continuing to beat the drums for truth but I must say I am very much jaded at this point. As Saker mentioned, large swathes of the “Zone A” populations are neither willing or able to handle truth. In the last few years we have witnessed foreign adventurism, a figure as president even more polarizing than Beelzebub, pandemic induced lock-downs, the idiotic woke movement, murderous police running wild, mass murdering rampages by private citizens on a weekly, and sometimes even daily basis, topped off by an abortive coup or whatever you want to call January 6th. Whichever way you want to slice it, it all adds up to a profoundly sick and diseased social order that is incorrigible and headed towards its Gotterdamerung. If the Russians are laughing, they should do so with nervous glances to their left and right. Empires gone mad are no laughing matter. No need to wonder what happened to “once civilized western society.” There is a perfect model in Russia’s own history: Nazi Germany. It too was the most sophisticated and civilized society of its day until . . . it wasn’t and turned into perhaps the most evil and heinous society ever seen in history (the US trying really hard to get that mantle). That the surrendering Germans at the end of the war chose the Western allies over the Soviets says more about the West than it does about whatever fears they had of the Soviets. They understood they were surrendering to friends. A shame that Russia is faced with this monstrosity yet again. As Yogi Berra once said “deja vu . . . all over gain.”
“Whichever way you want to slice it, it all adds up to a profoundly sick and diseased social order that is incorrigible….”
What bothers me is how many people who are sensitive and seemingly empathetic to the plight of the less fortunate are completely oblivious to our country’s needlessly aggressive foreign policy. There are lots of innocent Iraqis, Libyan’s, Yemenis, Syrians and former US veterans who have paid a huge price for no good reason at all.
Former US veterans are not innocent at all; they knew what they would be doing when they signed up. By definition under international law they are all war criminals.
Without those brain dead wannabe Rambos the Zionist controlled US military would have a hard time waging war.
They deserve all that they get for evermore.
I was told at least once that after WWII ended Stalin wanted a reunited Germany that remained neutral like Austria, but the US refused to allow it, and the Allied occupation zones became West Germany while the Soviet occupation zone became East Germany. Geography aside, I’m not sure how that goes with your notion that the surrendering Germans had a choice between the Western Allies and the Soviet forces.
Is this another sign that Russia ain’t puttin’ up with shit no more?
Could this actually be a provocation?
My 2 cents: a statement that RF can turn the CIA’s regime change assets into crispy bacon, and a warning of what awaits Erdogan’s Syrian Wahhabi mercenaries in Ukraine.
It’s actually more of a warning of what can happen to all Turkish Jihadi proxies and the various isolated Turkish OPs in Idlib, Syria if Erdogan is foolish enough to order Turkish troops to involve themselves in military ops within the territory of the Ukraine. I’m also pretty sure that for the RF “involve” includes Turkish military assistance in any kind of UKR drone ops/attacks against the breakaway republics.
This is much more than Ukraine. Or Belarus. This is about the new world order. You will own nothing and be happy. This is about Davos and Bill Gates and such. You will be fed grass to look like meat. You will be controlled and locked up periodically. This is the fight of my and your life. This is a fight against evil. This is a fight against a mask, a fight against a vaccine, a fight against the false alarm of climate change, a fight against stupidity. Maybe we won’t make it, but I for one will go down standing. Good luck world. And I will be watching Putin on Wednesday to see his response. Putin’s russia must rescue the world from the insanity that grips the west. Once again.
Thank you for those words. I agree with your assessment and take the same position.
I guess I’m not so all alone. Thank you for your comment!
To the Saker.
First of all I read your “Important announcement by the Saker!” and agree with your position.
In regard to the reference to the Skripals, the person to whom I attribute any reliability at all is Seymour Hersh!
Hersh said a short time ( a week or so) after the Skripals being found on a park bench and treated at the Salisbury Hospital for an Opioid overdose from the Sunday late afternoon until 10.00am on the following Tuesday, in what was later emphatically declared by the UK contingent as a “Novichok” attack… (Which if it had been Novichok the symptoms would have been different and they would have died within minutes) ………
From his contacts within US Security, he was told Russians were involved and that the two concerned probably had something to do with it …… Except it had nothing to do with the Russian Government or the Russian Security Services!
According to Hersh, Skripal and possibly also Yulia Skripal were working for MI5 in some operation relating to the Russian Mafia in London?
And if anyone was paying any attention Skripal never had a job of any kind but drove an up-market BMW and his previous MI6 controller lived down the road?
But of interest in this matter is the Czechs said the same pair Petrov and Boshirov were in the vicinity at the time?
Now I’m guessing here but it is anomalous the Weapons Dealer was storing weapons already sold in a rented Czech Government Store which the Czech’s said of the explosions was due to those renting the Store?
Furthermore it appears an attempt to kill the Weapons Dealer failed!
Once again yes? It may have been the Russians but was it the Russian Mafia mixed up in these dealings and the Weapons Dealer upset someone?
I don’t know what the truth of the mater is! But what makes me skeptical in all of this Russia Rant is …..how has Putin survived if the FSB is so incompetent to employ Petrov and Boshirov a pair of idiots who make a display of exposing themselves wherever they go?
All of this convoluted rubbish is just another Hollywood Movie seen time and again? Maybe Clint Eastward could Direct one of them?
So as far as I’m concerned the only Prime Minister showing any authoritative sane decision making is Jacinda Ardern who told the “Five Eyes” they weren’t the ones to determine Kiwi Foreign Policy!
And that’s something for which to be thankful.
@William, the problem is the timing and the source! It was Bellingcat that solved the Czech 2014 ammunition depot explosion in 2021 within a day Putin revealed a coup and murder attempt on Lukashenko!
Bellingcat even said on twitter that Putin gave the two Skripal suspects a medal for their Czech job!
As for Skripal driving an expensive car. Of course he would, he gets paid by the UK government, like all them spies.
Yes, Skripals were showing signs of hallucination and being on hallucinogens, and they were put for a week in an (artificial induced by doctors?) coma, but i do not think they overdosed on lsd which gives symptoms for a day.
Nato had a chemical weapons exercise in Salisbury, just before the poisoning:
Yes, but try to remember that the intrepid Bell$ngcat and the smooth-talking Higgins are not only brilliant but psychic too…they regularly know of an event, and who the culprits are, even before they happen…sort of a bit like the BBC and building #7 report.
And the fact that the organization was seeded by Soros has absolutely nothing to do with any of these skills!
I didn’t say it was LSD! The Russians indicated it was possibly an agent which had opioid characteristics and which was found in the samples sent to the Swiss Laboratory while at the same time weeks and weeks after the event it was declared the Novichok was “Pristine”, something which would be impossible due to the characteristics of such a volatile compound?
And to be noted was the ridiculous reply that the Agent was used as a
Whatever Bellingcat has to do with things is irrelevant, the important issue is how anyone with half a brain believes the Russians (Being the Government Organisations and Institutions) are so incompetent is a mystery to me.
As Putin said….. If we wanted to Kill Navalny, he would be dead!
So here is what the Swiss Laboratory found and I extract it from an Article of mine………..
The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, has claimed that one of the laboratories which analysed environmental and blood samples on behalf of the OPCW – the Spiez laboratory in Switzerland – has stated that it found:
…traces of the toxic chemical BZ [3-Quinuclidinyl Benzilate] and its precursor which are second category chemical weapons.
The Spiez laboratory has refused to confirm or deny his statement, instead issuing “a non-denial, denial”:
…the only institution that could confirm what Mr. Lavrov was saying is the OPCW. We cannot confirm or deny anything.
Since the UK Government has seen the analysis of the original samples, and has seen a copy of the OPCW’s classified report, can a spokesperson – perhaps the Foreign Secretary – go on record to categorically state that Mr Lavrov’s claim is false?
I apologise for not pointing out and giving credit to some of the details of what I referred to as ….. from an Article of mine……….. were sourced from an Article from “The Blogmire”. whom and which did an excellent job covering the Lie of the British Government including Scotland Yard.
And speaking of the Skripals…has anyone seen them around and about lately…no?…hmmm, funny that.
Official warning from US Strategic Command:
#USSTRATCOM Posture Statement Preview: The spectrum of conflict today is neither linear nor predictable. We must account for the possibility of conflict leading to conditions which could very rapidly drive an adversary to consider nuclear use as their least bad option.
“The spectrum of conflict today is neither linear nor predictable.”
…absolutely, and simply because of one factor alone…the astonishing lineup of retards in Warshington.
A numbers guessing game…
Pentagon Now Says Russian Troop Build-Up Near Ukraine “Bigger” Than In 2014
They will never admit that RF is only responding to NATO troop build-up in the Baltic satrapies in anticipation of a Belarus coup that got nipped in the bud.
But empire psyops & disinfo aside (the British Brainwashing Cretins’ piece is some shiny bit of propaganda), I get the sense that the talking heads are panicking.
I look forward to Putin’s upcoming speech and further action.
America would not try to assassinate a leader of another country because we are a democracy and uphold human rights, the rule of law, as well as free and fair elections.
In other related news, the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus are all Real!!!
Leaders of “Zone B” are drawing conclusions for themselves and that’s more important than the beliefs of the Western brainwashed audience. Leaders of Zone A must be scared about what would happen to them if they turn against their masters.
Bye and bye the MSM are losing control of the narratives. I know so many people who don’t believe them any more.
Yes, the good sheep. The American imbecile. Too busy with paht, porn and sports.
My surprise is the “other” silence.
This article doesn’t contain any link.
None of the big Russian outlets, like Tass, RT and Sputnik News, mention it.
Please provide an explanation for that!
MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 19th April, 2021) Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed on Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart, Joe Biden, had discussed the attempt to stage a coup in Belarus during their recent phone conversation.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko said earlier that Putin had raised the issue of US special services’ alleged preparations for an assassination of the US leader, during the talks with Biden. Reporters asked Peskov if this was really discussed.
“Yes, I can confirm this,” Peskov said.
I did some further research:
– as far as I can see the rumor started with a report on Belarussian television station ONT
– Sputnik has an article that starts with “Lukashenko says”. Later it came with an article that the FSB said that it had detained two members of the Belarusian opposition for plotting to stage an armed coup against President Alexander Lukashenko. But mysteriously the title of the article was about the State Department denying involvement
– RT has one article on the issue. In it it mentions the FSB arrests. But it also quotes some opposition member saying that this was just (in my words) a kind of locker room talk, more a symptom of powerlessness and not something serious.
– only three of the seven participants of the discussion were arrested.
Given the lack of follow up my impression that it was indeed that. Probably the FSB was routinely watching this Belarussian opposition meeting and they saw a far reaching complot in what was just hot air.
“Please provide an explanation for that!”
Have three of many.
1. Not everyone is “American”.
2. Not everyone assigns the same significance to “Americans” that they seek to assign to themselves.
3. Some understand that in context implementation is a more useful mode of communication, and silence a catalyst of self-delusion through “interpretation”.
Enjoy your further research re-enforcing your impressions, interpretations, and surprises facilitating subsequent iterations.
” the Russians are laughing hysterically and scratching their heads wondering what in the world happened to a once civilized western society.”
Some “Russians” are wondering what happened whilst others did not, and do not, harbour illusions about the opponents, but in context encouraged the opponents’ illusions of them.
From at least 1922 some “Russians” have understood that “The United States of America” was at “war not restricted to things that go bang” with “The Soviet Union” and subsequently the Russian Federation and all strategies were informed by this knowledge.
Some also understood that “The United States of America” had been at “war not restricted to things that go bang” with itself before its formal inception given that “The United States of America” are social relations not limited to being south of “Canada” and north of “Mexico”.
The Soviet Union emulated “The United States of America” in its default use of coercive tactics including “decapitation” thereby limiting opportunities of transcendence of “The United States of America”, given that “The United States of America” are social relations not limited to being south of “Canada” and north of “Mexico”.
Consequently the “Soviet Union” was engaged in an “un-winnable war not restricted to things that go bang with “The United States of America” and hence facilitated its own transcendence with the co-operation/complicity of “its own population” and the co-operation of “The United States of America”.
The ongoing lateral process of the transcendence of the “Soviet Union” by the “Russian Federation” was simultaneously a component of the ongoing lateral process of the transcendence of “The United States of America” by the “Russian Federation” which are co-operative social relations not limited to, or synonymous with, the geographical boundaries designated as “Russian Federation” since some “Russians” have never perceived “The United States of America” as being “a once civilized western society.”
The opponents are in some measure aware of this, including their limitations in transcendence of this, including the self-created limitations in respect of “their populations”, and hence they attempt to widen and accelerate/amplify resort to coercion in various forms, since they perceive the cooperative Russian Federation as an existential threat to “The United States of America”.
Some “Russians” are also aware of the environment and hence do not restrict themselves to laughing and/or scratching their heads, but include continuing resolve to facilitate the transcendence of the opponents with the complicity of the opponents in answer to the question
“How to drown a drowning man with the minimum of blowback”?
even if the blowback may be the “Samson option”.
Hmm, I’m starting to wonder if all this apparent incompetence by US agencies (and US political structures in general) doesn’t have a plausible explanation other than incompetence. If a third power wished to dominate geopolitics in the next century, both alienating Russia from the possibility of a future alliance with the US and destabilization of the United State(s) internally would be high on the list of goals. I can think of exactly one such power, with a cultural history of using such tactics against (internally perceived) enemies, or even potential enemies. They even wrote the book on such tactics, that I read as a US Marine; “The Art of War”. Granted, many other nation’s intelligence services have fancied themselves masters of that art, including the US’s own three letter agencies; but that doesn’t make it true.
“….wished to dominate geopolitics in the next century”
A caution in strategic analysis, design and implementation is “Do you think your opponents are as stupid as you are”?
The opponents tend to the view that simultaneously their opponents are, and are more, stupid than they are – a function and residue of “exceptionalism”.
Tsun Tsu lived a long time ago and others who lived after had experiences that Tsun Tsu did not have.
For more than 5,000 years some have pondered what is “to win” and some have realised that “to win” is an illusion, since immersion in the linear process of winning/losing facilitates its iterations.
Hence “domination” branded as full spectrum dominance or hegemony is also an illusion, which the wise understand.
Consequently the strategies of the wise are based on mutual co-operation, which limits co-operation with those incapable of mutual co-operation, including the coercive social relation presently self-designated as “The United States of America”.
During an FTX I met another officer who was expounding the Art of War. I asked him if he’d read the Dao De Ching which he had not. I then mentioned he had not yet read the Art of War as the Dao is the philosophical basis and not often read by westerners.
You speak of tactics but the Art of War is a book primarily on logistics, from material and men to information.
Magda Tam has it right, and even phrased in Daoist philosophy.
‘Hmm, I’m starting to wonder if all this apparent incompetence by US agencies (and US political structures in general) doesn’t have a plausible explanation other than incompetence.’
Yes, very elaborate, even brilliant, in the minds of the planners, plans and catastrophic execution.
To me this is typical of authoritarian, top down organizations, the leaders of which excel only at a$$ kissing, which is how they got their jobs, don’t have sufficient competence to know the limits of their own competence and are completely isolated from the facts on the ground.
Anglo-American organization culture at its finest.
A little more information about those hysterical Czechs … from the Russian Ambassador to the UN.

“Russia has limited the flight zone over the Black Sea
Some air routes in the Simferopol region were completely blocked. At the same time, the flight zone over the Crimean peninsula does not overlap”…..
MOSCOW, April 20. / TASS /. Russia announced the introduction of a dangerous zone for civil aviation in the area over the Black Sea and Crimea, follows from the operational information on changes in the rules for conducting and ensuring flights (NOTAM).
In total, the Russian Federation has issued three NOTAMs. They are valid until April 24, with minor differences. A number of air routes in the Simferopol flight information area over the Black Sea were completely blocked. At the same time, the flight zone over the Crimean peninsula does not overlap.
As follows from the NOTAM, in some areas there is an overlap only above 11,900 m (that is, above the level of civil aviation flights), in others – above 6,100 m, and somewhere the overlap of zones is from sea level.
Earlier on Tuesday, the press service of the Black Sea Fleet (FM) reported that, as part of a control check of the fleet forces during the winter training period, exercises were held in which more than 20 ships and boats of the World Championship and three squadrons of attack aircraft of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Southern Military District (YuVO ).Earlier, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued a NOTAM, in which it recommended that US airlines operate with extreme caution over certain regions of Russia and Ukraine. It is recommended to take special care when flying “to, from, within or above” the flight information regions (FIR) of Kiev, Dnieper (formerly Dnepropetrovsk) and Simferopol, as well as in the FIR regions of Moscow and Rostov-on located within 100 nautical miles from them. -Don. Both documents were issued in connection with “possible risks to flight safety associated with the escalation of regional tensions between the Russian Federation and Ukraine, which could potentially lead to cross-border clashes without prior notice, increased military activity and / or conflict.”…https://tass.ru/politika/11196391?following_ch=7205&utm_source=tass&utm_medium=push&utm_campaign=push_all
This is a question posed by spectators ensuring they remain spectators.
The questions posed by practitioners tend to be derivates of “How can this facilitate our purpose ?”
This “question of evaluation” is an indicator of subsumption in “accountancy”, including inherent notions of comparatability and projections derived there from.
This is an illustration of the continuance of “body count” methods of return on investment, comparative rates of accumulation/profit, and input/output modelling limiting perception of that which is outside the frame thereby re-enforcing the frame, and limiting perception of the consequences of making bodies to count.
The body counters also have a vested interest in the counting of bodies, and hence bodies of “ours” tend to be limited, whilst the bodies of the others tend to be exagerated, – those so involved in this practice being complicit in facilitating their own myopia, and encouragement of increased perception by their opponents.
This process was “followed” by many who harboured illusions that they had created/implemented this process, including but not limited to Mr. McNamarra, Mr. Westmoreland, Mr. Gorbachov, and Gosplan, all of whom were rendered spectators.
