… like everything from the West, reliance on YouTube should be, over some time, abandoned too, and Eastern-made alternatives be set up.
The footage of the radio tower wasn’t very convincing. Ditto for Kharkov. Why can’t we see more than 31 sec.? Hollywood pyrotechnics.
Pepe is a genius, it’s always good to hear him with his laughs and intelligent and logical arguments. Yes, youtube should be abandoned, because it has become a propaganda weapon for the people. But there is something more serious that happened in Ukraine, and it must be meticulously studied and analyzed. The US is blind to its own lie, so it is the Empire of Lies.
Do you want to know what made Ukrainians stupid and stubborn like a mule? watch the videos below, they have answers, signs and demonstrations of what made the Ukrainians enter a satanic bubble, and become more alienated than the martians on Mars. You need to watch it to understand the powerful alienating phenomenon used across the planet today. Don’t miss this opportunity and watch. In the game AGE OF EMPIRES, the monks are used in the game as a weapon, to convert enemies, to conquer the territory. That’s exactly what the CIA does.
yes, it was an explosive mixture of fanatical religious faith, involved with hypocritical and empty western Christian values, and a lot of thirst, thirst for vanity, for superficiality and western consumerism. The statistics do not show the real numbers of fans, because they are hidden, but they are large numbers, which involved the whole Ukrainian society. This same weapon was used to dominate Latin America and Eastern Europe.
I had in the past a pastor friend who went on “Christian mission” in Ukraine. I know the whole project and procedure. I know the strength and potency of this counterculture and dissimulation activity. They used all American technology in the services. Very seductive and powerful songs, composed by American composers. They are churches and services that look like a show, spectacle. This has made young Ukrainians so alienated and dominated by neo-Nazi dissimulation. These churches were all over Ukraine. I hope Russia learns its lesson.
Yes, this American theology did all that, or at the very least was the main tool for this extraordinary feat of stupidity, stubbornness, alienation, and the most Russophobic bubble ever.
Now behind the new Iron Curtain, Russia will have all the time in the world to end these American religions, and Western NGOs in Russia. Russian liberals will have to leave Russia, because the environment will become unbearable for them.
This explains the repulsion of Ukrainians for Russian values and civilization. They were Americanized, by a very calculated project with a very deep emotional reach. Putin is acting wisely in this war, and the war is at the right pace. Russian military is experienced and professional, every step is being calculated:
It’s a pale imitation of the “Boy Band” phenomenon, imported for propaganda purposes. Media has always been used for propaganda. If you want to read an excellent old classic on this, I recommend the 1978 book, “Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television” by Gerry Mander. Yes, they are entraining the youth. This is worldwide.
It’s not television or youtube. They are temples, physical, in person. These videos show the liturgy of these American churches in temples made of concrete. In these religious services all the modern techniques of Multi-level marketing (MLM), also called network marketing, are applied. They practice this weekly and at homes midweek. They take away the habit of people going to the theater to see art, and take them to the temples to watch these religious rock concerts. They are temples/churches transformed into faith companies. It’s very powerful!
I remember when they started this in the USA in the 70s. My sister used to go down to Huntington Beach, which is a public beach, but they had these giant religious concerts there which appealed to the youth. I don’t know how they got around the church/state issue, but they did.
Then they started pushing James Dobson and other nasty Christians big time.
Now the US is full of those giant churches which provide entertainment, human connection, child care, employment help, etc. And also massive brainwashing.
In the late 80s my dad said ”This is getting to be a mean, mean country”. Many other people felt the same way.
George H W Bush even ran on a Kinder, Gentler platform.
But they have now transformed the entire country into a mean, mean country and no politician even mentions it any more, they just use it to get elected.
I know these Christian evangelicals,having once once did sound for a short tour of Ireland,working for a contractor Who supplied the audio visual equipment.
I found these people to be a sort of zombie, especially the musicians who were tattooed and street trendy dressed.
One of the band tried to “convert” my then 15 year old daughter who had called in to say hello during the set up before the gig.
His bullshit was tolerated and after having leaflets pressed on her and attempting to get an emai lor phone number my daughter politely told him that she was not interested .All of this in front of her dad.
Arrogant zombie too.
The following November 2001 I was staying in a hotel in Miami and noticed that these same creepy Christian types were cheerleading the calls for war on Iraq and Afghanistan.needless to say when I was offered another gig with them I refused to do it.
I got the impression that a lot of these American travelling evangelists were ex junkies and people with serious mental problems who clung on to the Judeo Christian notion of “salvation”
yes, it turns entire civilizations into pettiness. It is a complex and grandiose phenomenon. Boy Band is just part of this CIA superstructure, which is another offshoot. This, too, is a mode of the postmodern world.
Baptist churches, Assemblies of God started in the beginning of the 20th century. At first they were Christians, then they turned away and started working for the CIA indirectly. With rock, computer and technology, they transformed the liturgy, and became a weapon to fill the cultural vacuum of countries divided by the Empire. It’s powerful because it uses Jewish philosophy as a foundation, and popular musical excellence, and then creates a cultural bubble. It has also contributed to alienating the American people, and making them believe that they are exceptional, special. That’s what this phenomenon does. This culture became the majority of people in the USA, and most of Angola, some countries in Latin America, and in Eastern Europe Ukraine, and Belarus was also thriving and involving the whole country. Lukashenko woke up out of necessity, and I think that he’s dealing with it now. The Empire wants to take people out of connection with reality. The third world war begins with the trade war and the culture war.
Much of this new Christianity can be summarized in two words:
Forming a mass of uncritical supporters/adorers.
And needless to say, anything like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, YouTube, Western-controlled engine searches… should, carefully gradually but assuredly, be banned from this united Asian space, of course with worthy alternatives being provided.
I have not watched to the part where a miscalculation is discussed: that said, I don’t think so.
The US is not awake to the dangers of insulting Russia.
Nor any jackals who run with the ‘good ole USA’.
This is life or death – NOT to Russia but to US-West-Babel.
The US is blind and deaf to its own perfidy. American destroyers are within the country, and their mutated cancerous clones have already metastazed, producing a deadly cancer with the help of the treasonous MIC:
“the Straussians is a small group of people within the US power that has transformed Ukraine without its knowledge. The group formed half a century ago and has already committed an incredible amount of crimes in Latin America and the Middle East without the knowledge of the United States.
… The PNAC raised funds for the candidacy of George W. Bush (the son) and published before his election its famous report “Rebuilding America’s Defenses”. It called for a Pearl Harbor-like catastrophe that would throw the American people into a war for global hegemony. These are exactly the words that PNAC Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld used on September 11, 2001. …Thanks to the 9/11 attacks, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz installed Admiral Arthur Cebrowski in Donald Rumsfeld’s shadow. … Cebrowski imposed the strategy of “endless war”: the US armed forces should not win any more wars, but start many of them and keep them going as long as possible. The aim would be to destroy all the political structures of the targeted states in order to ruin these populations and deprive them of any means of defending themselves against the US; a strategy that has been implemented for twenty years in n Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen…”
Ziocons wants to keep Russia in a state of “endless war.” This plan lads to the inevitable hot phase of the ongoing WWIII. As it is well known, metastatic cancer kills the host. Either the US makes a surgical procedure and removes the tumour (the Kagans clan, Blinken, Sullivan, the whole cancerous mass of Israe-firsters in the US Congress, and the MIC mega-profiteers), or there is no hope for the survive of the country.
I fully agree with this brilliant essay by Thierry Meyssan, and with your final point of view. Although I know that the Zionist corporate media is working tirelessly to keep the American people in a state of collective ignorance. Will the wiser sectors of American society dare to pierce the veil of misinformation that the controlled media imposes on them?
No. There are no wiser sectors, at least in positions of power. Anyone whom challenges the official narrative is an enemy of the state.
I read in Zerohedge that there are around 1400 banks registered in CIPS, compared to 11000 in SWIFT. Roughly 12%, not a negligible ratio but clearly not dominating.
I wonder what would happen if by the end of the year that number rises to 5000 or 6000. Sanctions from third countries would become inapplicable.
Considering the shipping lines embargo, what alternatives does Russia have? Are there Chinese or other companies able to take the load?
But banks in the US and Europe do not count as they are now forbidden from trading with Russia, so could be near dominance in the rest of the planet.
Putin has Miscalculated ,He has one of the same problems Hitler had ( allowing 300,000 brit’s evacuate
Dunkirk instead of killing them ,the 300,000 came back to fight him and he loss the war. ,Putin wants the west to like him and he is to close to the Jewish tribe , also
he is a lawyer and he like’s to do things accord to the law ,when your dealing with gangsters you can only
Deal the way they do and they only understand brut force. The Ukraine war is taking to long and may drag out
longer he has his own Russia ( 5 and 6th column )against him and the entire west and Jewish tribe .If he get’s
box in he may have to go Nuclear. his main culprit’s are USA, UK and Israel ,the Akshad Jew’s want their home land back ,also Crimea which has large gas deposits.
Thanks tom.We just need your help to depress us further even if we avoid the MSM. Keep your mixed up opinions quietly to yourself and let us move forward positively as Pepe does, with laughs!!!
Tom, exactly what Rosemerry said, and furthermore I think it’s rather silly for ANY of us to assume we know better what needs to be done than Putin and his team does. Additionally, please spare us your pseudo-psychology take on what Putin wants emotionally, PULEAZE!
To quote an opinion from another analyst, it may be the plan was for Putin to park the Russia army outside Kiev, encircle some Ukrainian forces in order to actually force the government to negotiate a settlement. This is a slow process, but Russia will increase the pressure on Zelensky each day that goes by. I think there is probably the case. One of the other achievements of the action has been to disabuse Kiev of any notions they may have had that the West will do anything to help them.
The regime change in Kiev was a Jewish plot and another step towards world domination. To achieve the goal of domination, Jews would sell their parent and desecrate the graves of their ancestors. No decent person can imagine this; hence the “miscalculation.”
In Ukraine, Ziocons have used successfully the stupid Nazi leaders making them into obedient tools for Ziocons. Nuland-Kagan boasted about $5 billion the US has spent in Ukraine. Were the Ukrainian “white führers” bought by the “chosen?”
After the 2014 regime change in Kiev, “Undersecretary of State Nuland resurrected Dmitro Yarosh [leader of the openly Nazi Pravyj Sector party] and imposed him on President Zelinsky [Jewish], a television actor protected by Ihor Kolomoysky [leader of the Jewish community of Ukraine and founder of the self-proclaimed Nazi Azov battalion]. … Yarosh gave his full support to the “white führer” Colonel Andrey Biletsky and his Azov Battalion.
Andriy Biletsky, the commander of the Azov Battalion who is known to his comrades-in-arms as the “White Führer,” makes no secret of his views – in his 2014 program declaration “Ukrainian racial social nationalism is the core of ideology of ‘Patriot of Ukraine’ organization” he expressed himself quite bluntly:
“Our nation’s historical mission at this critical juncture is to lead the global White Race in its final crusade for its survival. A crusade against the Semite-led Untermenschen.”
The Semite-led Untermenschen are you – Yarosh, Parubiy, Biletsky, and your stupid followers. You have been working in cahoots with Ziocons AGAINST the global White Race. Live with that.. You have sold Ukraine and Ukrainians to your Ziocon Masters.
They are not ‘ Semites ‘, please. They are Khazarian Ashkenazis.
Global Talmudic Judaism Internationale has declared an asymmetrical war on Russia. A war on multiple fronts. Every single Jew is involved in one way or another. They know who they are, and we do too. One just has to learn to notice them, it’s like having what I call ‘ the third eye ‘.
Russia still has reserves, and the second echelon of Siberian forces that can be brought up, so before you all get too excited, laugh, and cheer, it is not over by a long shot.
Russian MoD has looked and thought of every eventuality. Things haven’t turned nasty yet.
You seem to express quite a lot of opinions that are not backed up with much in the way of facts. Hitler did not ‘allow’ the forces at Dunkirk to escape. The commaander of Army Group A, which were forced the withdraw, Generaloberst Gerd von Rundstedt, ordered the halt to allow maintenance on his tanks, half of which were out of service, and to protect his flanks which were exposed and, he thought, vulnerable. In the fog of war caution tends to be advised when significant assets are at risk.
The fact the demilitirization of Ukraine is taking so long is due to the fact we are watching Russian war doctrines being implemented here rather than the Western doctrines, which relies gaining control of the skies and then bombing the shit out of anything and everything. As has been stated here numerous times in analysis from individuals who have far greater knowledge and understanding of events of this nature Putin does not want to destroy the infrastructure of Ukraine if it can be helped. They do not want to kill civilians as this is not discounted purely as ‘collateral damage’ but rather considered to be a war crime. Same as targetting civilian infrastructure.
Yes, Russia attempts to adhere to international law. Even if those laws have been bastardized and largely disregarded by the actions of the West since the UN was formed. The current sanctions, illegal, ie a violation of International Law.
If the Russian government had decided to just deal with this as quickly as possible a few well placed missiles in population centres as well as valid military targets would have seen Ukraine turned into a virtual wasteland in no time at all.
Yes, the nuclear option is on the table. However prior to that Russia has some very significant and highly destructive ‘Conventional weapons’ (non-nuclear) in the form of a new breed of missile that would have a kinetic effect at the target zone as a small nuclear weapon just without all the issues that come with nuclear weapons.
The West thought he was bluffing once. The fact the US is under no circumstances prepared to go to war with Russia says everything about this conflict and the state of it in military-technical terms that needs to be said. Sure the West is trying to turn Russia into a pariah state however even that is having impacts on the West and US in particular, that has some of their elites coming out and saying things are going to far.
Perhaps it would be best to spend some time reading some old articles here. Looking over defence reports available on the current status of Western military hardware that can be found with some simple searching. Critically reflect on what you learn and are asked to believe and then come back with an informed opinion about what it is that is, or is not occuring.
>… “the nuclear option is on the table.

In my 20 / 20 hindsight, it really does look to have been a major strategic blunder for Mr. Putin to have attacked a helpless underdog rather than going right for a blitzkrieg elimination of the war-making capabilities of the REAL enemy. If, indeed, the Russian Federation has achieved an unassailable first-strike capability, it sure seems like a a great waste of resources and manpower to have used it against a virtually defenseless "cardboard adversary".
If Mr. Putin had humbled and de-fanged the "snake", crushing its head, he would undoubtedly have enjoyed the enthusiastic support of the vast majority of the people and nations of the world. As has been true since before the dawn of recorded history, everybody STILL roots for the underdog.
Not being the intiating party of WWIII should not be considered a, “major strategic blunder’. You need to remember the damage done by a hypersonic weapon is staggering. With the West having no equitable response they would be forced to respond with their own ‘big guns’. I don’t think that is something anyone wants to do unless it really is the final option.
Remember, none of these types of weapons have been used against Ukraine. Weapons used in Ukraine are all equitable to the West’s arsenal. We are watching a war doctrine that is not familiar to the world after watching the West’s fucked up strategies over the last 60 years. As has been highlighted by others, Bomb the shit out of a country with airpower and then send in troops to try and mop up in an asymetric environment.
Thank you Admiral, may I suggest you actually watch the video before commenting ?
They came back when the Russians were knocking on the Brandenburg Gate.
“the 300,000 came back to fight him and he loss the war.”
So it’s the Brits (no doubt aided by those superhuman warriors the French and the Belgians) who are mostly responsible for winning World War II? Not the Russians? Not even Patton?
“The Ukraine war is taking too long….”
Have some patience, old fruit.
The Exceptional People bombed Serbia for 78 days before they put one boot on the ground.
They bombed Iraq for 40 days before they dared set foot in the country.
It should have being a three prong attack at the same time Russia , Ukraine -China ,Tiawna and Iran ,Israel
The West would not known which way to turn.
That, I believe, is what they are doing Tom.
Well that’s a number of us holding the same opinions then. I expect them to attack Iran as early as this summer. Don’t worry though, I’m rarely wrong but ALWAYS at least a decade off target …
Indeed, I also have the impression that at the moment something similar is simmering under the carpet.
North Korea, South Korea. There are about 200000 US citizens including 28000 US troops in south korea. They are all within the North Korea missiles and MLRSs ranges. MLRSs alone can cover the entire south korea. Not sure how US can evacuate those 200000 US citizens.
Yes, Boeing, Nike, BP, Ford, Total, Shell, Apple, Volkswagen, etc. have all proclaimed they have cut all production and sales in Russia. I contend this is simply an amateurish attempt at reverse phycology.
Russian markets are now closed to European and American products and services.
The CEOs of these companies know they are being cut out of the Russian market and are virtue signaling that they are doing so voluntarily. They are not doing this voluntarily.
The primary obligation of a CEO is to maximize the profits for the company shareholders. Abandoning a lucrative market such as Russian is not in the best interest of shareholders. So the logical conclusion is that these companies are being forced out of the Russian market.
“”” the logical conclusion is that these companies are being forced out of the Russian market.”
I guess by direct order of zionist blackrock and vanguard….
I apologize for not making my hypothesis clear Hamid. I contend that the Russians had and have a set of retaliatory sanctions prepared for the “West,” including barring western companies from selling product and services to the Russian market.
Western intelligence realized this and advised western companies to “pull out” of the Russian market before Russia placed sanctions on them. For example, if I, as the CEO of Nike knew that Russia was going to ban Nike from selling anymore product in Russia then I would preempt that ban by stating Nike is no longer willing to sell our product in Russian. If I know that Russia is going to ban my company then I should make the first move, virtue signalling that Nike supports Ukraine and will no longer sell product to Russia.
I other words, I know that I’m going to lose the market anyway so I may as well make the best PR out of it.
I hope I have made my hypothesis more clear Hamid.
I (too?) initially believed, and (mis?)interpreted your original comment as saying, that the companies were being forced out of the Russian market by the governments of the (Western) countries they are based in, and not so much by the Russian govt.. Until now I could never imagine Russia kicking out those foreign companies by itself, let alone in the name of counter-sanctions.
I much prefer a transcript and also NOT a depressing title please!!! Will listen later.
I could not finish it either, but it seems to be a repeat of what Pepe has written more succinctly elsewhere.
This is not about your feelings.
Yes, a very western decadent attitude, old chap. lol
The Overlords of the West cannot help themselves, impulsive to the last. A hurried phone-call to various civil service departments, followed by ill coordinated meetings resulting in flash shock half-baked actions, all in 6 days, throwing 95% of their toys out of the pram, left only with blanks to see them through to next winter’s blackouts.
Meanwhile Russia & China who’ve been preparing for this moment for 2 decades for this have an artillery of measures that will see them replace brick-by-brick the necessary security and economic measures that will see real wealth transfer east.
Never bring a Tomahawk to a Kinzhal fight.
rosemerry, was that really necessary? I mean, do I have to care a fig for your preference and your misunderstanding of the title?
The comments so far give the distinct impression these posters are reacting to the video title without first watching the actual content.
Spoiler to those too lazy to review they are opining on:
The video title is a sarcastic jibe at the MSM narrative.
Ok, than the article FAILED.
Because most will read a title, before even deciding on watching a video.
A readable article/transcript… a person can read parts of to get a clue about the content.
While a video…. we only have the tigle.
And yes i did NOT watch the video.
1.because of the title.
2. I do not like watching videos that much (prefer transcripts, so i can read at own phase and skip babling parts;)
“Putin on Verge of Defeating Neo-Nazi War Criminals in Ukraine; Peace Talks to Follow in Days”
There, that’s a better headline…
What a beautiful conversation. I have never see something so refreshing as this discussion with Pepe. A conversation where every word count. I copied it for long term storage and will listen to the whole thing again.
Pepe has this combination of dep and vast cultural background, extremely fine and intuitive knowledge of the geopolitical situation around the world, and rock solid judgement.
A must watch for anyone who is the least interested in an understanding of the evolving situation and what future it could bring.
Yes Robert, he’d be one of the first names on your dinner party guest list for sure. Could listen to him and Mr Martyanov all day.
Wow. All the comments about the title. Please note it has a question mark at the end. It is a question put to Pepe. And this is what is widely discussed from the western sources.
Because the Russian forces are not blundering in and bombing everything in sight, but waging a careful campaign, directed at *only* the neonazis and their infrastructure, protecting civilians, of course few people understand the methodology. I maintain, as best we can, we are seeing a miracle of modern warfare that has never been seen before.
Pepe has carefully outlined the possible outcomes – and really, this is what we see happening. It is a complete decoupling with the west, which will speed up their demise.
Which Euro vassals will be the first to jump ship? Will Hungary’s recent long term gas contract remain intact even if Gazprom pull the plug on NS1?
I don’t think for a moment he has miscalculated. This has to be done in a way to win hearts and minds. I think a lot of Ukrainians are grateful for his intervention, certainly localized based on ethnicity.
I do believe that there can be no doubt about the outcome, and parts of Ukraine will be voted into Russia.
What Putin is doing is paying the price for his beliefs, that is not something everyone would do. But I doubt that anyone any longer thinks he is bluffing. And that in itself is an important message to get through too.
Somebody had to stand up and say enough. And put the power behind it.
It should have been done already with Covid. And it will have to be done with climate. There is a lot of work ahead. We are battling stupidity, ignorance and pig pigheadedness.
That will never be done with kind words and smiles.
The state of affairs in Ukraine as of this morning according to Igor Strelkov…
“Strelkov Igor Ivanovich
The situation at the front as of the morning of March 2
Southern Front (Nikolaev – Zaporozhye).
On the left flank, as expected (see yesterday’s report), the purge of Kherson, begun yesterday, continues. The city was taken under control without serious fighting, although fragmentary materials from the site indicate that the armed resistance of the so-called. “terodefense” took place, but was quickly and effectively suppressed with heavy losses for its composition. With regard to the situation near Nikolayev, no information was received. In all likelihood, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation did not take any active actions against the city itself, continuing, nevertheless, to expand the zone of control to the north and northeast of the city. including – in the direction of Krivoy Rog. I have no data on the advance Russian units reaching the outskirts of the city of Voznesensk. But the direction of such an advance – along the course of the Southern Bug River – is quite logical. Maybe, we are talking about active reconnaissance by mobile groups. Moreover, the “respectable Kiev partners” not only do not have an organized front in this direction – they do not even have disparate units capable of at least a “dotted line” depicting its presence.
Unfortunately, the number of Russian troops also does not allow advancing here at the pace that could be afforded with their sufficient numbers.
Also (expectedly) there is no information about any hostilities along the lower reaches of the Dnieper.
The situation on the right flank – near Zaporozhye – remains unclear. I do not yet have any information about the advance of Russian troops in this direction. I assume that the main forces were previously sent to break through to Mariupol, which ended yesterday with a complete encirclement within the almost city limits and the occupation of Volnovakha itself without a serious battle (contrary to my forecast that the Ukrainians would stubbornly defend this most important railway junction for some time).
From the point of view of the expediency of choosing this particular direction for the development of the offensive, I will allow myself to express doubts about the correctness of the decision. Since Mariupol and Volnovakha, remaining in the “operational shadow” of the advance of Russian troops in Zaporozhye and in the rear of the main grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass, did not represent significant strategic value compared to the possibilities of encircling the entire Donetsk grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, control over Volnovakha will certainly make it possible to significantly improve the supply and replenishment of the Southern Group of the RF Armed Forces through direct communication with the Rostov Region. However, the rapid withdrawal of the enemy from Volnovakha should be assessed precisely as the fact that the enemy saves his regular units for future battles.
Suggestions (if anyone is interested):
DO NOT STORM Mariupol. Do not lose people and equipment there in heavy street battles, and most importantly – time. Leave him “alone” for a while, tightly blocking and directing all the forces not involved in the blockade to try to envelop the enemy behind his now open right flank – in his near rear in a general direction (very roughly – depending on the tactical situation) to Pologi- Walk-Pole.
Donetsk front. With the exception of the southern and northern flanks, it maintained a static position. The main forces of the Armed Forces of the DPR and LPR were attacking on the flanks, the military of Novorossia did not have the forces to attack the heavily fortified positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Donetsk, Gorlovka and Debaltseve. The enemy actively used this, “watering” the positions and cities with all the calibers at his disposal (since the shells will still have to be thrown at the inevitable retreat, and it’s not a fact that the artillery and military equipment itself will be able to be withdrawn). At the same time, Russian aviation began to punish the enemy in this direction, striking at his columns and artillery positions. In retaliation, the enemy unsuccessfully fired at the forward military airfield near Taganrog with Tochka-U.
On the northern flank, fighting continued near Severodonetsk and the withdrawal of enemy troops to the west and northwest.
Apparently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine intend to keep the Severodonetsk-Lysichansk junction as long as possible.
Strelkov Igor Ivanovich
Central Front (Chuguev – Chernihiv).
On the left flank, Russian troops continued to fight stubborn street battles in Kharkov and strike enemy military facilities and infrastructure from the air. In this regard, it should be especially noted that military facilities near the town of Chuguev, which had not previously (contrary to my assumptions) been subjected to serious attacks, were subjected to missile strikes. On this basis, we can make a cautious assumption that the Russian command initially hoped to get these military facilities (the main of which is the largest air base) “for free” and without serious damage after the Armed Forces of Ukraine “scatter or come over to our side.” Now, when it has become clear that the enemy will not surrender until he is physically defeated and destroyed – such hopes are discarded and blows are not delivered with the aim of “scaring and saving as much as possible”,
Strelkov Igor Ivanovich
Situation as of the morning of March 2, part 2.
There is no evidence of a deep advance of Russian troops west and southwest of Kharkov – towards the troops of the Southern group advancing near Zaporozhye – to envelop the enemy’s Donetsk group from the north. Apparently, the task of the speedy complete mastery of Kharkov was set as a priority.
To the north of Kharkov, Russian troops occupied the city of Trostyanets. thus creating a single continuous front line from Kharkov to Chernigov and further to Kiev.
Sumy and Chernihiv are “left alone” for the time being – there are no reports of battles in them.
On the right flank of the Central Front – pulling up forces to Kiev from the east. Information about the offensive of Russian troops on Boryspil has not yet been received.
Right Bank Front. (northwest and west of Kyiv).
Fighting continued along the entire perimeter without major advances. It is obvious that yesterday the Russian troops did not try to achieve deep breakthroughs, consolidating the previously achieved results and conducting active reconnaissance (including reconnaissance in force). For today, I predict more active actions here, since there is no time to lose – the enemy hastily pulls up the remaining reserves to Kiev and urgently creates new irregular formations.
All operational tasks remain the same – to cut off Kyiv from communications in the southwestern and southern directions.
General points of the operation.
I am glad that an understanding has matured in the Russian military-political leadership about the need to “fight not in a mockery” – that is, to use the entire arsenal of forces, means and military methods laid down in a big serious war. Finally, the objects of television broadcasting, which supported the “fighting spirit” (or rather, “zombie”) of the population and propagandized Russian people, who stood up to fight in order to “stop being Russian”, were struck. The result will not be instantaneous, but “the path begins with the first step.” Also, all observers and sources from the field note a sharp increase in the actions of Russian aviation, now striking not only at purely military targets, but also at the main nodes of the administrative control of the so-called. “Ukraine”. Which will certainly give a positive effect in the near future.
The quality of Russian military propaganda has also noticeably improved over the past two days.
I would especially like to note the fact that “a terrible thing happened” (not for us) – the subversive “Echo” and “Rain” were blocked from broadcasting – traditionally serving the external enemies of the Russian people and the Fatherland. We did not expect this either during the First or the Second “Chechen” campaigns…
The operations of the Russian troops continue, acquiring a more planned and organized character. There are important operational successes (still not yet developed into a strategic success). The enemy’s resistance over the past day also did not weaken, but he suffered a number of sensitive defeats (I believe two were the main ones over the past day: 1) the capture of Volnovakha and the establishment of a direct land connection between the Southern grouping and “mainland Russia”; 2) the destruction of centralized television broadcasting (although this work must be continued tirelessly, not stopping at half measures, and not forgetting also about the Internet)).
Obvious “pluses” – clearly demonstrated by the authorities and confirmed by the actions of the military, the intention to complete the operation under any circumstances. As well as less “captive” planning of hostilities, which should significantly reduce losses in manpower and equipment.
“Cons” – the revision of approaches to the conduct of the operation inevitably extends the terms of its probable completion. Which will have an extremely negative impact on the economic and socio-political situation in the Russian Federation in the near future. But this is an order of magnitude better than getting local defeats “out of the blue” without any positive results (which will even worse affect the general situation).

Recommendations: do not “pull the cat by the tail in the hope of a chance” and begin urgent measures to increase the ground forces – by (for starters) a large-scale recruitment of contract soldiers for short (6-12 months) service periods and the call-up of the most demanded categories of military servicemen from the reserve. ”

George, you’ve just posted this in the “Day 6” thread. Please do not double post. Post once, and that is sufficient. Also, do not give us these walls of text. Summarize the material and give a summary and a link. (I do believe you could benefit by reading the moderation policy. http://thesaker.is/moderation-policy/
In this thread, your posting is out of tune.
Just a heads up, if George is getting his information from Telegram, that means the rest of us would need to access Telegram in order to obtain Strelkov’s updates. But Telegram is not accessible to those of us who are not using android phones. I am on those unfortunate people.
Therefore, I am wondering: maybe it’s okay for George to continue to cut-and-paste Strelkov’s reports on this forum? That’s the only way people like me could access this very valuable information.
I work with a very busy Telegram with a bunch of channels on the desktop. It is not on my phone whatsoever – not even synchronized. Try it on the desktop – works well. And you can walk away – it would probably drive me absolutely nuts on the phone.
The issue here is double posting, posting without references, posting a bunch of stuff in the wrong thread.
Just while I am here and off-topic yes, and I should probably write about it, but we’re going to have to change our ways of information gathering. With the many many bans and blocks and slow-downs and so on .. Telegram is not a bad option. But, check whatever you find with a fine toothcomb. The internet is probably not going to come back in its old form, that we all know.
When all of this started in earnest, I had to seriously change my own ways as well .
You can access Telegram in a browser without signing up, ie
You will will have to refresh to get new posts
I clicked on your link, and got a webpage showing Colonel Cassad’s latest update. I also got a message (to the right of my screen) telling me to “download Telegram.”
Are you saying I can ignore downloading Telegram, yet still get Colonel Cassad’s updates simply by clicking the “reload page” Windows symbol at the top left-side of my browser?
I’m having a lot of problems setting up Telegram. Everytime I try that, Telegram fails to send the code to my Textnow app phone number.
Thanks for the info.
Never mind my last question. I can now see that Colonel Cassad’s updates are viewable each time I click the “refresh” button.
Thanks again for linking me to this source.
Actually this particular report by Strelkov was a rather interesting read. I say this knowing very well about the reservations that the Saker has about Strelkov, and I agree on that. But still, I have just read Strelkov’s report and couldn’t stop till I was through with it. Thanks a lot for your work, Amarynth, God bless you.
I am not interested. Stay with the moderation guidelines of this site. That is all.
I would love to track the sources of your information. Apparently it’s coming directly from Strelkov and other Russian experts. Please include links, that way I directly access these reports.
The Russians are clearly reporting a side of the war which Western media (and think tank experts) are not willing, or not allowed, to tell the US and European public. I am one of those English speaking people, living in the US and dependent on MSM, which means I’m starving for the truth.
Thanks in advance.
That’s his telegram channel
If you need translation, just copy the post on telegtam paste it in deepl.com which is a very good translator (much better than google)
Funny how this guy was looking for sanity in die-hard neo-communists…
Nazism and communism are basically the same thing.
Bom dia Pepe aqui de Franco da Rocha ,Brasil.
Enjoyable video as always with Pepe. A good interview by the host. Gives a fresh grand overview of current events at a higher level of abstraction than the nitti gritty of battle details.
the pulling out has also one more angle..the economy in west after covid is going sh*t..it comes as part of cost cutting too
It’s always a pleasure to follow your analytical mind, though as a European, it’s actually extremely depressing. In a larger context, any thoughts about the stunning initiative of Lithuania, of Denmark and of the UK to allow and even to push the creation of a legion of ‘volunteers’ to fight in Ukraine? Has it yet occurred to you this might be a Machiavellian and somehow clever, cheap and easy way to rid themselves of their own brand of Nazi scum and generally from young and/or stupid people tending toward extremism?. “Let’s get rid of them by showing ‘solidarity’ with Ukraine and let the Russkis do the job, hoping we’ll never see them again”?
Keep up the good work!
I don’t see it as a police operation (22 minutes). That was more or less what the Americans said about the Korean War but it was a war.
Absolutmente extraordinaria entrevista de Pepe. Altamente recomendada para todo el mundo interesado en entender las conexiones historicas y geopoliticas del conflicto actual. Bravo Pepe!
The comments section should be treated what it is meant for – comments. Not essays. Or worst, cut & pasted entire articles. Getting too busy and over inflated.
For a moment, I thought he said “Montify them”. … everything they say is an instant Monty Python sketch!
fun to listen to pepe’ le escobar but the US just managed to force the EU to give them a hundreds of billions dollars in the next few decades to pay for US gas PLUS the US just forced the EU to send them several additional hundreds of billions of dollars to pay for junk US weapons… Similar for JP/SKR. So the US will be taxing 60%++ of the world’s GDP in the next decade. Not a bad return for an investment of $5+55 billions (many from the EU) in pre-/post-maidan UKR and assorted NGOs and neonazi bands there.
Thx Pepe for this interview. Well done to you and Richard.
I was happy to see this piece of news about One Web and the position taken by Roscosmos in this issue. They are asking for legal guarantees that the satellite will not be used for military purposes, and that the UK is no longer shareholder of this company by the time of the launch.
It also means that Russia is equipped to destroy the satellite if they find out to be the case. Major development,imho.
I put more faih in Pepe Escobar than all of the legacy globalcabal media combined. Easy to see the truth when you don’t have to perform mental acrobatics to connetc the dots plainly visible to anyone who looks.
Holland will be screwed as well. Germany is our #1 trading partner by far… and I think we’re the #3 investor in the USA (we have a large fossil fuels import and export sector so I guess thats why we have petrodollars?) If the petrodollar falls, the US economy will shrink and I bet the wallstreet boys sold worthless investments to our smurf pension funds like they did before 2008.
In 2016 we voted on a referendum about Ukraine, we voted against the association agreement, one of the reasons being that “Ukraine would become a victim of the imperialist EU politics” (rather than the USA – it’s a quote from the Forum for Democracy, a party whose leader Thierry Baudet has been demonised for years; just yesterday a guy on national public tv said that during ww2 ppl were hung for opinions like his / Thierry merely explained the Russian point of view)

Pepe knows his stuff! A top shelf journalist and analyst.
Very few out there with his depth of knowledge and understanding.
How long do I have to wait for Part 2?
Putin continues to sabotage the machinations of the West by pacifying and denazifying 404. And it’s going to be very interesting to hear the revelations about MH-17, the Odessa massacre, the planning of the Maidan Nazi putsch, etc.
Just for the fun of it: The fierce anti-corruption spirit which permeates the upper echelons in US society has resulted in a US lawsuit against the Swedish telecom company Ericsson for paying bribes to ISIS in Iraq as a lubricant for its corporate profit-making. Really, I certainly don’t mind the greedy scum at Ericsson being fleeced by a country such as the US; the problem here is that, alongside Saudi Arabia, the US has been the chief sponsor of the headchoppers. I wouldn’t put it past the US spending Ericsson’s money on reviving the circus whose destruction it was, once again, Vladimir Putin and the Russian State that made it happen.
From New Zealand! Great Program and honest analysis! Good to know that there are people who see through all of this mess.
In my view I go further, the lack of popularity is not Biden’s fault or Trump’s growth is a dissatisfaction with all this and it makes me think that the Kremlin is one of the few to see this mainly because we can see that they try to push or the speech patriot or identity. Neither of them will work and the people may be seeing in Putin a guy who goes above and beyond and doesn’t bow to anyone but his people. What the media is actually doing is propaganda for Putin for free.
