Western Europe and North America are now in dire economic straits. Four EU leaders, from Germany, France, Italy and Romania, have just been to Kiev to plead with Zelensky to start negotiating again and make territorial concessions. The Western media did not much report on the fourth Romanian/German leader, Klaus Iohannis, and showed few photograph of him; possibly because the racists who work in the Western media despise Romania (https://www.bing.com/news/search?q=Romanian+Leader+In+Kiev&qpvt=romanian+leader+in+kiev&FORM=EWRE). What they all forgot to mention is that Russia has no need to negotiate and, given the way that it has been treated since 2014 (indeed, since 1991), it is not going to make concessions.
The EU leaders once more made the illusory promise that the Ukraine might soon become a candidate for EU membership (despite the Dutch veto), if it restarts negotiations. This old carrot dangled before the Ukrainian donkey is irrelevant. The EU has more than four countries and four leaders, whatever promise that the Ukraine may become an EU member in 20 years time. Long before that, there will be no Ukraine and probably no EU. The day after their visit, the Johnson clown went to Kiev too, though we do not know what he spoke of. Presumably, he just wanted to show that the UK is a ‘Great Power’ – like the EU?
It is all too late. Negotiations on the Donbass failed for eight years because the West forbade them. They failed again last March in Belarus and Istanbul, for the same reason. The West in its arrogance believed that it could crush Russia using its Ukrainian cannonfodder. This has been displayed for nearly four months now by the reports of State propaganda mouthpieces like CNN, the BBC etc. with their nonsense that President Putin is dying and that Russia is running out of fuel and ammunition! Wishful thinking all the time. Originally Russia just wanted to liberate the Donbass. However, pig-headedness in Kiev means that they will now be forced to take control of the whole country – and perhaps more, if aggression from outside the Ukraine continues. It was all so unnecessary…
The West cannot go on with its suicidal and illegal sanctions against Russia – or rather against itself. The lack of oil, gas, fertilisers and essential raw materials is biting. Inflation is taking off all over the West. In the UK a wave of strikes is threatened. The incredibly unpopular Johnson’s days are numbered. The only problem for Russia is that the rouble keeps rising. Despite interest rate cuts from 15% to 8.5%, the rouble is again at 56 to the dollar. Clearly, further Russian interest rate cuts are, forgive the pun, in the pipeline. Meanwhile, African and Asian leaders have told Zelensky to stop fighting. They want grain (https://news.mail.ru/politics/ 51814770/ ?frommail=1).
Of course, it is true that many of the West’s woes began well before this year, not least with the absurd and totalitarian ‘covid’ restrictions from 2020 on, which bankrupted many companies and led to it printing ever more money and to ever higher and unpayable debts. The West is desperate for the conflict in the Ukraine to end before the autumn cold sets in. Otherwise there are going to be popular revolts in Western countries, with scenes of looting on the streets.
Western arms, usually third-rate from stocks anyway, are making hardly any difference in the Ukraine. Most, together with munitions, get destroyed before they can be used. Much that has been promised cannot be used because it will take months to instruct Ukrainians on how to use them. The rate of attrition of the Kiev Army, up to 1,000 a day according to Kuleba, the Kiev Interior Minister, is simply unsustainable. Once the fortifications in the Donbass, built by Kiev and NATO over the last eight years, have been overwhelmed, there will be a clear run to Odessa, Transdnestria, Kharkov and Kiev or indeed anywhere that Russia wants. This could happen soon.
Yesterday, the Russian Ministry of Defence released figures on mercenaries (https://news.mail.ru/incident/51803470/?frommail=1). The picture is dismal for the Ukraine. Of some 6,000 mercenaries in the Ukraine from 64 different countries, some 2,000 have been killed and some 2,000 have fled. Perhaps they thought that they were going to fight in a Third World country, where the enemy just had Kalashnikovs and not world-beating hypersonic missiles? How long the remaining 2,000 or so will remain alive remains to be seen.
Poland supplied the greatest number of mercenaries, with 1,831. Presumably as with other countries like Canada (601 mercenaries), USA (530), Romania (504), Germany and France, the majority of these were actually Ukrainians who have lived outside the Ukraine for some years, rather than native people. In third place for mercenaries from Europe comes the UK with 422, of whom 102 have been killed and 98 have fled. According to General Konashenkov who released the figures, the number of mercenaries coming has stopped and indeed been reversed. It is too dangerous to stay and get killed in the Ukraine.
This leaves the two foolish British mercenaries, not killed in action with the 102 others, but taken prisoner. And also it leaves two captured US mercenaries. There is speculation that the British might plea for their release in exchange for Julian Assange. That would upset the Americans. On the other hand, the British mercenaries, Eslin and Pinner, have already been sentenced to death. If that sentenced is carried out, it is going to make Johnson even more unpopular than he already is. Perhaps that is why Johnson went to Kiev to plead.
Thus, the first or military stage is coming to an end and should be over later this summer. However, this is only the start. The New Ukraine has to be formed. Then there is the demilitarisation and denazification of the rest of Eastern Europe. And there is the economic war, declared by the West, to be finished. On 17June at the International Economic Forum in his native Saint Petersburg, President Putin said:
‘After the Cold War the USA declared itself to be the emissaries of God on Earth, without any responsibility, only with interests….Today’s changes in economics and in international politics are tectonic and revolutionary. The Western elites are in a state of delusion, clinging on to the shadow of the past and denying changing reality…Nothing will be as before…The EU has definitively lost its political sovereignty. The current situation in Europe will lead to an outburst of radicalism and in the probable future a change of elites’.
Here is the future.
Kuleba is not Ukraine’s Interior Minister, though. He’s the Foreign Affairs Minister.
I have a feeling that the problem of Lithuanian transit “blockade” will be solved one way or another within few days, maybe even tomorrow. Oh, it’s a speculation on my side, derived from what Peskov said today.
Which parts of what Peskov said today, lead you to speculate?
They don’t need to keep “people of Walmart” happy or well fed. Just controlled. Biden has already threatened to turn the military on Americans who complain. F15s & all. And it would hardly be the 1st time in history.
Usamericans have guns. Why don’t they fight back? They would be very dumb if they don’t …
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

Nah…the Amerikanski only do random mass shootings
Because uncoordinated, untrained, disorganised civilians with guns going up against against any military are going to far exactly as well as might be expected if uncoordinated, untrained, disorganised civilians go up against any military.

i would like to see how well an army fared in “da hood” in Chiraq and other usaian cities, bomb them and flatten them or infantry in the streets?
How exactly do you think infantry will be received in “da hood” if they came to oppress and kill random subjects in the streets?
How would the usaians react to a rubble heap formerly known as Chicago?
How many months before “semi trained citizens “+deserters from army to raise a proper defense?
The amount of legal guns in the u.s is gigantic + illegal weapons the amount is Ginormous.
I think you need to rethink and really study tyranny and oppression of subjects.
I agree in part. First of all because the US is in the sorry state it’s in because its military is optimized towards ‘tar on terror’, exactly of the insurrection kind.
On the flipside, they were 100% invaders in every action. They didn’t have to live in a squalid dysfunctional mess and were able to keep loved ones at arms length while huddling in FOB’s designed for frontal assaults. On short bases are not designed like that, and cannot operate with their needs being met by some safe unconflicted far away place. Supply chains would be ruined, every blade of grass would harbor another potential sniper. The military would be under siege without supply.
There are roughly 1400 guns in America per soldier. Getting anywhere or doing anything would be hazardous and I would 100% imagine that China\Russia would be feeding manpads and anti tank in wherever it can to weaken the military from afar.
Within this chaos new countries would be formed… and they would have to be diametrically opposed to ‘the old guard’ to not just become the new targets. Then it’ll be a land grab, and more civil war until the billions of rounds of ammo run low.
The transit right was a part of the pact where Lithuanian boundary with RF was officially recognized. Lithuania unilaterally reneged on its part there rendering the pact null and void. Now, it is up to RF to decide where does that boundary lie, maybe RF has a clear run to Kaliningrad in the newly drawn maps, who is to say. : )
Agreed, this seems key to me as well. It’s not Kaliningrad that’s vulnerable. It’s the Baltic States that are vulnerable. It’s almost like Lithuania was told to make it easy for NATO & EU countries to scream publicly for the propaganda while doing nothing to stop whatever the RF feels needs to be done in the area.
No western politician can of course directly break the silence, as it were, since that was so, uh, limiting to one’s future life span opportunities for prior generations of leaders that offered various public critiques.
Western/USA/WEF know they screwed up with this Ukraine fiasco. Their only hope is to employ NATO air
power and those dumbass Lithuanians are cooperating by poking the bear. Western interests are hoping
that Russia takes the bait and then NATO will have its excuse to employ full air power against Russia. Russia
has to either supply Kaliningrad by air and sea or risk introducing NATO air power into the conflict.
NATO does not have great air power at all. The F-16 and F-22 are flying garbage for Russian missiles.
NATO stands out only for its bluster and lies. Pretty pathetic.
Actually the F-22 is a fine aircraft, but they have discontinued it a few years ago.
Must be because…it was a fine aircraft.
Not only would those planes be taken out by S400s but the airbase where they took off from would receive a visit by Mr. Kinzhal.
I don’t know what buzz above is talking about. Keep the illusion going for as long as they can maybe?
The Russian aircraft and pilots are way better than top gun. Even the Chinese responding to one of USA never ending threats said” meet us in the sky”.
Either would beat the living daylights out of Israel/ USA and NATO. It was a sanctions war and propaganda to back it up from the very beginning.
Yes, they counted on Ukraine to mount a fierce resistance, bombing and hiding behind civilians.
In Afghanistan, they armed and bribed their bullshit army and thought they would withdraw in an orderly way. Their Afghanistan army collapsed overnight and USA war hegemony supporters know the rest.
That great Western logic applied again to maintain an obvious fantasy empire. Hate , ignorance and stupidity reign supreme. But the real pain is coming, and the excuses hard to find.
I was reasoning along the same lines (not saying your/my reasoning is correct, it was just one of my trains of thought). As I continued along that line of thought, the issue of timing seemed key: so I might intentionally take the bait – but later, at a time of my own choosing, and after I have completely obliterated the Ukranians forces on the ground in the east through artillery.
So then NATO air power gets authorized – but to do what?
Now yes, there is all this talk of a “million man army” that will be trained/raised – but does anyone believe that is real?
NATO “to employ full air power against Russia”? You serious?
Iirc, Russia supplies Lithuania with 65% of it’s electricity. All Russia has to do is flip a switch & let them grope around in the dark for a while.
The Kaliningrad problem is an economical one. Russia is all about balance and escalation only in proportion, so the answer against Lithuania will also be economical. Both sides are hurt. The leaders speak, the elites profit, and the people suffer. Nothing new. It’s human nature. A pre-historic nature…
But let’s imagine there would be a military answer:
– 1 year of Russia+Belarus military exercises on the border
– also NATO buildup and also exercises on Lithuania and neighbors, plus Sweden and Finland entering even faster (Turkey would be squished under diplomatic/economic pressure)
– Russia starts bombing Lithuania
– NATO starts bombing Russian troops in Lithuania
– Russia’s S400 destroy NATO airplanes
– NATO starts bombing Russia with long range
– Russia starts bombing other NATO countries with hypersonic
– NATO uses MOABs in Moscow
– Russia uses thermobaric in London and Washington
– NATO uses “tactical nuclear”
– Russia uses full nuclear
– USA uses full nuclear
– in a few minutes the entire North America, Europe, and Russia are mutually destroyed
– the rest of the world dies under nuclear winter in the following weeks/months
– the virus, bacteria, and extremophiles are the winners…
Lithuania imports from Rusha, oil, electricity, coal, metals.. well, Vilnius, we just cut all that off with no warníng, sorry, like. NO need to weaponize the trains..
” Today’s changes in economics and in international politics are tectonic and revolutionary. The Western elites are in a state of delusion, clinging on to the shadow of the past and denying changing reality…”
I wonder how the well-connected in e.g. the US are going to accept this “New Normal”?
Consider that once the US loses the ability to financially bully “everyone else” then who is going to want to trade with them? Who will be willing to buy their Bonds (unless the interest rates truly “reflect the risk”)?
It’s going to be interesting finding a non – WW3 solution to keeping the “People of Wal-Mart” happy, entertained and most importantly fed. Their much-vaunted “military might” no longer seems that great, and should they decide to “save face” by opening a second front against China (generally perceived as an “easier touch” than Russia), then it’ll be useful to remember China and Russia’s mutual defence agreements.
Unfortunately the combination of Imperial hubris, upcoming elections, and Russia’s slow yet inexorable advances make a return to “conditions as they used to be” impossible. We are all entering fairly uncharted territory, and Western behaviour so far does not instil confidence in a happy outcome (I’m looking at you, Boris Johnston).
With the potential for nuclear war taking the spotlight, what is not being clearly brought out, but what you are certainly hedging at with your comment, is that the U.S. and the E.U. for all practical purposes are being relegated to “third world status” in the new world economy that is rather quickly unfolding. The realization has yet to hit the U.S. and E.U. populations.
They are rather sleepy critters, its being said that just like slavery ending in one country at a time, so will the new monetary policy of world electronic money backed by gold, to combat the hyperinflated dollar and euro (too much money chasing to few goods), seems like a challenging feat but hey, who am I to get in the way.
I really wish for the “People of WallMart” get into a war/conflict with China RIGHT NOW!
It would really speed up the complete and utter destruction of the “Empire of LIES”
The sun would come out and you would hear birds singing
Julian Assange would be the highest profile trophy, slap down gift that keeps on giving the USA and vassals, worthy of consideration.
Just my two cents worth.
There are two British mercenaries. In exchange for these two lowlife killers the DNR should ask for the release of two political prisoners held in Britain: Julian Assange and Yulia Skripal.
Russia already took in a US leaker named Snowdon. So precedent is set.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Snowdon announced he doesn’t want to return to the US because Russia is more stable and freer.
He would be foolish for him to come back to US…what for? to be convicted as a traitor?
I’m not suggesting he would be traded
Only that precedent has been set for Putin accepting “leakers” as refugees.
Someone (forget who) upthread said Putin wouldn’t take Assange because he leaked gov secrets.
I’m saying prior events suggest otherwise.
Agree. Remembering also the West’s accepting “moderate rebels” and “ngo’s” as refugees from Sovjet, Iran, China, pretending to be do-gooders to double agents, headchoppers and trojan horses who were in jeopardy because they had been fighting for democracy.
It would in direct line with the acceptance of Snowden to take Assange.
I think that this would be a brilliant move for the DNR. It would free an innocent man an maybe Ms. Skripal for a very low cost. While the two Brits are mercenaries it is does not appear that they personally committed war crimes against civilians.
There is not much time to pursue this because once Assange is in DC’s grasp he is done for.
Bill Osborne Jr,
we don’t know the exact details of what these two British thugs did in Donbass, but they did spent a few years in Syria fighting against the legitimate Syrian government of Bashar Assad. Therefore they are professional soldiers and make living by killing people in countries that are not officially at war with the UK. Which means they have been hired by some secret British government agency. They are not so innocent as one might think.
Yulia Skripal will never be released as the UK denies her existence. To release her they would then be in the sticky situation of having to explain where she has been and why.
And of course Yulia herself would spill the beans on the entire fake Novichok narrative.
Great point but i am not sure the Skripals are alive.
As Mr Lavrov stated, the British & Morocco have to negotiate with the DPR, who have jurisdiction over the 3 mercenaries.. So far, they have not done so..
et pour cause, cela sous-entendrait la reconnaissance officielle de la RPD!
and for good reason, this would imply the official recognition of the DPR!
The future is made up of the same things as today.
“There is speculation that the British might plea for their release in exchange for Julian Assange”.
Sounds like a non-starter. The Russians have no particular interest in Mr Assange; and indeed Mr Putin has expressed his lack of sympathy for people who leak government secrets of any kind.
Moreover, the British mercenaries have been sentenced and Mr Pushilin has said that he doesn’t see any grounds for a reprieve.
Assange safe and sound in Russia – writing his memoirs and releasing his files over the next ten years, would be a cascading opportunity for disclosure of Western corruption with little further effort by China & Russia
Think…..we are at the beginning of a Multi-polar World. The US dollar will no longer be this new trading blocks reserve currency. The only concern for the Multi-polar countries is to prevent sabotage by the “usual suspects”. The “rest of the World” does not need any proof of US and Western vassals crimes via leaks. Wikileaks is a service for the Western population. The proof of Western corruption and crime is for it’s population to act….which they have not. The Western population deserves what the future holds since they chose to ignore the crimes and injustices of their leaders.
Assange did not leak, he failed to conceal evidence of crime…and published said evidence….a publisher, not a spy. Skirpal too, kidnapped to keep her silent…however…did’nt Helmer say he thinks she’s dead?
Beg to differ. Putin took in Snowden to protect him from American Justice.
Actions vs words
What do you mean – American Justice ? also – – and indeed Mr Putin has expressed his lack of sympathy for people who leak government secrets of any kind.
There is NO American justice & Putin took in Snowden with NO hesitation.
@mary exactly. What motive did Russia have to give asylum to Snowden? This was when Russia was not ready to go head to head with the US, so the only logical reason would be to give an innocent man protection.
I hope that Russia refuses to enter into further negotiations. The west never honors any agreements. Biden has stated that the western goal was to weaken destroy Russia. (What an idiot move). Russia needs to crack on.
A major defeat and corresponding economic hardships are the smelling salts needed to wake up the zombiefied western public.
“The west never honours any agreements “
It really seems to me as if the west is treating with Russia as their ancestors made agreements with the American Indians; the purpose of a treaty is to pacify and control the other party but the dominant power in no way considers itself bound by it.
Quite precise description. But the roots are British. The British system of suppression of colonies has exactly this attitude, seeking after independent natives and subdue them like you do with horses and cattle. The racistic approach.
The Brits found out the ground-school is the best way to destroy a culture. We remember the salafist quran schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan with teaching books about knives and machine guns to defend democracy ( kill Russian occupiers).
Always this talk about the need to denazify Europe… Sorry, Batiushka, you are wrong. Our problem here in Europe is not that we are governed (and informed and educated) by nazis but by degenerate, foolish liberals.
It is up to Europeans to reform their own governments. With these escalations Russia will probably extend the SMO to the Polish border but not further. Let winter and economic hardships do their job.
Sorry Herman, the degenerate foolish liberals ARE the nazis.
Sorry Bill, the Europeans are all degenerate foolish liberals. Nothing will be reformed, but green nazified.
They are just using another label today. NationalSozialismus, clean race, clean energy, exceptional (Obama), green environment (Hitler).
You call them liberals, I call them WEF Nazi’s, and they are not an EU monopoly. They are an international infestation requiring major pest control. Someone asked how do we get rid of them……over to you.
Are you European? NATO expanding to South Asia, seriously? Major international pest control aka Kinzal and Kalibar required.
It really makes no difference if they are liberal fascist or conservative fascist. They are fascists.
US conservatism is among other things
– tradtional family rather than LGBT
And the Mexican voters are fleeing the Democrats, They are conservative by culture.
And those degenerate foolish liberals tricked you into thinkIng you werent governed by Nazis. The left are ALWAYS the useful idiots.
america used to change every few months the name of their owned and operated head-choppers in Syria. Changing the name never changed the behaviours of either america or the head-choppers.
Denazification of Eastern Europe prerequisite is denazification of Imperial US ruling junta, which in turn is inescapably a revolutionary change, but it’s impolitic to say this. The rest of AZE would also undergo a “change of elites”. VVP has telegraphed the grand strategy…denazification of west.
(Mother told me they were nazis, she was right…in 1955.)
Nazis, Neocons, Neolibs. Three legs of the same platform for eugenics, genocide, and technocracy.
Nazis, neoliberals, democrats …etc. in today’s Europe they’re all stooges of the big bankers. Very surprising, countries of southern Europe still can tolerate those degenerate NATO characters like Jens Stoltenberg or Ursula to make important decisions and choose how their old countries must run. By the way, hope it’s possible to exchange Julian Assange with one of the American thugs captured in the Donbass. Also, excellent article by Batiushka. Thanks.
“Liberal” is just a misnomer. Modern “liberals” have no connection to classical liberalism (a right wing ideology) and absolutely zero connection to the political and economic left.
Modern “liberalism” is just a new cultural religion that operates as a veneer for anglo atlanticist financial capitalist (arch-right wing) hegemony so that said hegemony can export its white supremacy (via resource wars waged against poor brown people) while simultaneously mollifying domestic consciences.
It is in someways analogous to Naziism, but not identitcal. Still, it works to explain why Nazis and western liberals make good bedfellows.
Conservatives believe hope lies in holding on to the past.
Liberals believe hope lies in pursuing the future.
Neither is fundamentally evil.
But modern liberalism has veered from progress to anti-conservativism, a knee jerk rejection of tradition without any demonstrable benefit of progress.
The liberals have become nazis
They should be called “libertines” rather than “liberals”.
Even though death sentences have been handed down to the British mercenaries , the DNR and Russia have on intention of carrying it through. They will be used as bargaining ships for future prisoner exchanges. I don’t buy the Idea from Lira that Lithuania is stupid enough to blockade Kaliningrad and the US and NATO want to get into the fight or use the nuclear option. The US and NATO will try to use Poles, Romanians and others to provoke Russia. The Ukraine army is essentially a NATO trained army and is being annihilated.
I also like to add that NATO used the precedent of Operation storm during the war in Yugoslavia thinking it would work against Russia. First of all, the Yugoslav army was held back by Milosevic and most of the Serb rebels pulled back. The Croatian army would have been decimated along with its NATO proxies if the JNA entered Croatia from Serbia. Holbrook convinced Milosevic to hold the line in exchange for the Dayton agreement.
The point of the matter was that the Maiden Coup was led by OTPOR , the same group that overthrew Milosevic in Belgrade. Much of what is happening in Ukraine was taken from intelligence of the break up of Yugoslavia by NATO.
The West is run by psychopaths and they know that their neoliberal model is bankrupt (Actually utterly bankrupt).
They need war and preferably a protracted war to divert from their own appaling economic and political management.
Now they are trying a blockade of Kaliningrad..and the Russian reaction will be devastating.
If we are spared WWIII meanwhile, by October, in France people may have to buy heating oil for Euros 2000 or 3000 or more p/1000 l or even unable to get any. Only few can afford this.
Best is, if you reside in West Europe, sell your house and move to Asia or South America.
Cheers from France
The blockade of Kaliningrad is fixed by the immediate cessation of Russian oil and gas to NATOland. It was be over in a few days.
Thousand a day. If we put 1 mio more into the war, it will take Russia 1 000 000 : 1000 / 365 days = 3 years.
Then we put 1 mio more into the war, saying we can easily make Ukraine into an Afghanistan quagmire for Russia over 6 years for only 2 mio. dead Ukrainians, and the Ukrainians have still 38 mio inhabitants left.
Two mio Ukrainians dead which nobody will remember because there is still 38 mio and 6 years later, we should have “outspent Russia” ref Nato’s Stoltenberg and Wall Street. If Russia speed up the killing rate it is the same.
My prediction is we end up with the usual 6 million and a new world order. It is THAT easy!
Where do you find that 1st million warriors? The women aged 18-60 that Ukr is now drafting?
And arm them with what?
How do you make replacement weapons without raw materials (from Russia, China)?
Which outsourced manufacturer makes them?
And how do you stop conscripted cannon fodder from selling the weapons on the dark web? Or surrendering with them?
Strength by quantity.
“Denys Sharapov, Ukraine’s deputy minister of the defense in charge of procurement, support for weapons and equipment, and Brig. Gen. Volodymyr Karpenko, land forces command logistics commander, spoke with National Defense Editor in Chief Stew Magnuson and other reporters through an interpreter in the Ukraine Ministry of Defense’s booth at the Eurosatory conference in Paris on June 15. …
“Sharapov: The [Ministry of Defense] You asked a question about needs. First, you have to understand that the frontline is 2,500 kilometers long.
As of today, all the people in all of our armed forces and within the defense and security sector is up to one million people. 1-2 million more can be mobilised.
And we have to support them all. We have to supply them with small arms, with personal protection gear and with the means of communication. …
Quite unfortunately for us, we have become the biggest consumer of weapons and ammunition in the world. And we’re hoping to receive support from the entire Europe and the entire world.”
As I said, it is that easy man. If you want to earn money :-D. (sarc) https://southfront.org/the-profits-side-of-the-war-in-ukraine/
“And arm them with what?”
Shovels … according to latest military plans.
While what is happening to Julian Assange is criminal. Not while one Russian Private remains in Ukrainian captivity, should Assange be accepted for exchange.
Family before friends.
Blood is thicker than water! Hearing you.
Why not a package deal, all released or the EU freezes to death and America melts and or starves to death.
(How long does it take to starve a Walmartie?)
Over a year, it looks like:
The western nations including the USA , Canada and Australia are criminal enterprise, killed people ,destroyed nations ,occupied and humiliated millions of humans like them , they claimed Christianity as their religion, but this claim is so far the from truth .
They should be punished for the bad dead they did to the human race including their own people .
Think even right now the US forces occupying illegally Syrian and Iraqi territories, stealing oil and wheat from the Syrian children , talk about civilized American.
It all come to the Anglo/Zionist controlling the world .
Many people fail to understand the USA. Bottom line is, it’s an evil beyond the scope of normal humans to understand. Behold, Z Plan IV, the American Golem.
Pressuring Zelensky to make territorial concessions for peace is a non-starter.
Not because Zelensky won’t do it, but because Russia set clear objectives that have not yet been met: demilitarization and denazification. That will be done with or without Zelensky’s approval or assistance.
When that is complete the SMO will enter the next phase. It will be very interesting to see what that is. Wait patiently while the US and EU implode? Remove US missile bases in Romania and Poland? More active defense of Syria aginst the illegal US occuaption?
“Rheinischer Kapitalismus it is dead now”A term Dima on Crosstalk used today…and new to me. I had to look it up. RT / CT @ about 23:00
There’s a wiki (in German). Well worth reading in context of Batiushka’s “Nothing Will …”
One result will be the very rapid impoverishment and attendant radicalization of the people who were formerly quiescent…
Rheinischer K cannot coexist with “sanctions” or with war… Indeed, the foundations of economic/social “contract” are “dynamited”. And like “911”, an inside job with a dramatic collapse…how thrilling.
I assume few of you will belive this, but we are all entering a new era. The age of the sleeping phoenix takes over after 412 years in the age of planning. The old will have to die for the new to emerge. All states and corporations will become increasingly desperate in their attempt to hook people into their schemes. Unfortunately for them the peoples urge to say yes to everything from their masters will diminish and disappear. Our modern societies are very vulnerable. Lack of one substance may be enough to put an end to huge logistical chains, be it oil, electricity or a mineral. What could be repaired some years ago is now ready for the scrap heap when some chip stops working. Everything gradually becomes more and more complicated, but less and less people want to study and understand what is complicated. So somewhere down the road there will not be qualified people available who can maintain all the systems. I don’t know how fast this will happen, but in 2127 it will be over. Then our civilisation as we know it be just something people have heard about. More advanced societies will probably be the first to experience that “something is wrong”. We will see more and more desperate attempts to keep the system floating. UNs Agenda 2030, WEFs The Great Reset etc are just the start.
We cannot discount that as the collapse of the west nears, Putin will be offered all sorts of sweetheart deals and hand-outs by them, even a status of a half-hegemon, if only he does things to keep west from collapsing so western elites can retain their wealth and status. Remember that these people are eternal leeches and parasites, and need a host to live off of.
And Putin should trust them because they have never gone back on their words, right? Why should Putin save them to become a half-hegemon when he can become the complete hegemon of whole Europe once the Western elite go down?
While Putin is always clear and dignified in his expressions and Lavrov is diplomatic but sometimes ascerbic, Medvedev is refreshingly blunt. Regarding the possibility of negotiating an extended New START nuclear agreement, he said this:
“We don’t have any relationship with the US at the moment. They are at zero degrees Kelvin. And we should not unfreeze them for now. Let them come crawling and beg for it.” (The zero point of the Kelvin scale is absolute zero, which is when particles have minimum kinetic energy and cannot get colder.)
Unfortunately, many innocent people will suffer, but it will become widely understood that the US is the perpetrator of their deprivation and Western violence has precipitated it.
Well I welcome this Russian attitude, we cant live on with these degenerates, waterboarding, abu ghraib, 9/11, sanctions stupidity, dumbing down schools, lgbt bs, depravation, dissolution of simple criminals laws, open violence and blackmails against other nations affairs. Something gotto happen.
@ Edward: And Putin would be very dumb if he believes them …
I note, Friend, that you did not say whether or not VVP would take the offer… Of course he won’t take the deal….
But you are 100% right, these nazi pirates will, probably already have, offered him 1/2, and then 2/3, and then 3/4, and then… but they lie as easily as they breathe…
His parents did not raise a traitor. Or a fool. The monks @ Athos seated him in throne of Byzantine Emperor..
The deal he offers is denazification and surrender, US nukes out of Europe, or maybe destroyed. US Army retreat to CONUS…and Trials….
The nazi pirates will fight to the last fodder unit…they can’t take his deal either.
They may offer but a total certainty is Putin will do what is best for Russia. So, they are not going to get.
wesley clark, bojo and jens stoltenberg are now making noises that sound like “time for nato to go to war.” maybe hoping lithuania will goad russia into escalating?
i hope Russia stays cool and finds other ways to get material to kalingrad.
if nato is the one to jump in first, will china and india come to help?
edit: i hope that china and india will help, if necessary. instead of a question.
Also Iran could help by closing off the Strait of Hormuz to western shipping.
I’m sure Russia will stay cool, contingencies for this outcome was probably planned before the SMO.
Lithuania is breaking the agreement regarding their generous divorce from the Soviet. If one looks at the pre 1938 borders, it was substantially smaller … and has gotten former Russian territory as part of the settlement.
Although it is a sovereign decision, it is formally ordered by the EU. This is something to take into account when the full Russian reaction to the sanctions package from Empire is made in the future.
It is also noticable that Poland has held military exercises in its North-Eastern region, bordering Kalingrad, Lituania and Belarus. As if that was not enough, there have been talk about annexing Kalingrad to Poland.
I looks like the Empire is trying to throw the Poles and the Balitics under the bus. As a matter of fact it looks like Empire is trying to throw continental Europe under the bus.
“The West in its arrogance believed that it could crush Russia using its Ukrainian cannonfodder.”
I’ve seen variations of this assumption (of claiming to know the objectives of the power structure) throughout the SMO but no one is producing any actual insider evidence or theoretical/logical support for this kind of claim.
“The West”, to the extent it’s a single coherent entity (as opposed to a bunch of loosely affiliated thieves across intel agencies/banking/media/official military/pharma/etc.) does not believe a few thousand or even hundreds of thousands of Ukronazis can crush Russia. Are people really confusing the propaganda for what the transnational globalist oligarchs actually believe? Do people really think the fascists are sad to see looting and unrest and so forth in the West? Degrading social cohesion and national unity is good for them, not bad. It’s why they implement policies to destabilize countries all over the world to create large, uncontrolled mass migration into the US, France, Germany, Italy, and elsewhere while pushing internal fractures around identity politics to pit citizens against each other and promote group/collective guilt rather than individual/human rights.
To the extent we can infer and guess at the objectives of the ruling class over the past six months, they likely fall into roughly these five domains:
1. Needing to reinvigorate the perception of Russia (or RF+PRC) as a strong enough adversary to warrant continued existence of militaristic organizations and trampling of human rights that otherwise really have no reason to exist like NATO, EU, IMF, CIA, MI6, GWOT, PATRIOT Act, State Secrets, etc.
2. Needing to reset the narrative around COVID-19 (and biological/pharmaceutical research/laboratories more broadly) because the propaganda was collapsing too quickly on too many fronts simultaneously. And I mean specifically the coordinated public policy actions and conflicted actors like WHO, FDA, NIH, CDC, etc. (the actual medical/health aspects of the underlying SARS-CoV-2 virus is a separate conversation worthy of its own examination but distinct from the politicization of that science).
3. Testing RF limits – there seems to be a pretty solid strategic understanding now between DC and Moscow that the RF will indeed do whatever is necessary to protect Tartus (Syria) and Sevastopol (Crimea). If anybody was going to go to nuclear over this behind-the-scenes non-agreement agreement, it would have already happened.
4. Now that the plunder in North America is pretty much complete, the Eurolemmings are the next target who still posses some amount of broadly shared prosperity for the oligarchs to grab. Eurolemmings, not Russians, are who bear the brunt of the consequences of the past six months. That is by design not accident.
5. And of course, always an excuse to give more fiat currency units to connected insiders. This isn’t a bug or defect or weakness. It’s not ignorance or stupidity. It is intentional and strategic and enormously successful. Concentration of wealth and power is the point of the system. It’s why MMT proponents are so sensitive when critiquing it as a solution to anything because emission of currency units without commensurate taxation of the oligarchs is how global power has worked for over half a century.
Then to the extent we want to get really conspiratorial, the above shorter term objectives might also be in service to a larger global plan, too, to blame the inevitable collapse of the whole post-Bretton Woods order on Americans so that whatever form of more overt fascism the globalists attempt to offer as a solution doesn’t have a strong, unified Constitutional Republic in the US to offer an alternative. It’s possible that destroying the US might actually be the high level vision of which antagonizing Russia is just one piece. All part of why stopping the empire’s war on Russia is so important.
Thank you for the analysis.
I don’t really buy this “transnational globalist oligarchs” stuff, sorry. Sure, the West is ruled by oligarchies and, sure, they used globalism to plunder the world, but my point is they still are the american oligarchies, the british oligarchies and so on. To call them “transnational” is to try to avoid responsibilities. Each of the western countries is indeed responsible for their oligarchies’ evil actions, sorry. The US has been a major player in this plundering, and as such all Americans are indeed responsible for it. When the US government talks of “delivering” freedom to other countries, Americans stand proud and give their support for that. What is happening nowadays is that the farce is coming down, and the hidden consequences are starting to show off. Americans (and other westerners) should accept the consequences of their exceptionalism and take responsibilities, joining the rest of the world to rid of this so “rules-based international order”, and, by extension, of many of the oligarchies.
Please, then, do not call them transnational. It’s the governments who are acting. If their citizens didn’t agree, they should take their government down.
– Each of the western countries is indeed responsible for their oligarchies’ evil actions, sorry
As we understand here, an US base is located in Ghana will be part of French neo-colonialism …
CIA Franfurt is a center for European neo-colonialism in Africa, disguised as “American”
What is there to buy? Transnational is simply a descriptive statement in the English language of how economic power works from supply chains to philanthropy to media to intellectual property to nongovernmental organizations to CIA black sites to biological research to whatever bugs you about the way the world works. This has been true for decades now. There are very few nationalists, either individuals or organizations, left in the West. To put it bluntly, the US dollar only powers an empire because “the rest of the world” accepts the US dollar and everything that is built upon it. (Seriously, let that sink in if you haven’t thought about it this way before – the only thing that gives western currencies value is that governments in Zone B are happy to give away their own citizens’ labor in exchange for it)
You seem to be very invested in blaming ordinary citizens. This is part of the power of the propaganda. A key point is to pit ordinary people against each other (both within and among nations) to distract from the looting and creeping authoritarianism happening at a level above national borders.
When the citizenry of an individual Zone A country has managed to overcome the odds in a particular area and resisted or offered some kind of alternative or opposition, then international pressure in various forms is brought to bear to override domestic politics.
And at any rate, if you are going to apply that standard to the citizens in Zone A, then the same holds true of citizens in Zone B. They, too, “should take their government down” if they don’t like their government cooperating with all the transnational stuff. Stop doing business in EUR, JPY, GBP, USD, etc. Sell your dollar-based assets, from currency units to debt to shares of stock to real estate. Arrest the banksters and war criminals when they leave their western national borders. Stop allowing violations of various international agreements and human rights standards within your national territories. Stop abstaining in international bodies and actually vote against the war mongers and fascists. Stop recognizing corporate friendly IP law. Stop participating in frauds like the drug war. Stop participating in international organizations that don’t respect national sovereignty, local control, and self-determination. And so on.
This is the problem with blaming the people. Of course, in some basic fundamental sense, each national citizenry is responsible for their governments. But that misses the key factor which is that transnational fascists acting over and through national governments (and non-governmental organizations*) are exceedingly difficult to dislodge from pressure solely within a particular nation.
*This, after all, is a defining element of fascism. It’s the merger of corporate power and state power that is so insidious, or as it’s been rebranded for kinder and gentler propaganda: public-private partnerships.
“Nothing will be as before” is an understatement.
Economist Dr. Peter Warburton wrote the book
“Debt and Delusion: Central Bank Follies that Threaten Economic Disaster” first published in 1999. (Review)
“There is an unexploded bomb in the global financial system, threatening to bring the greatest disruption to the lives of people since the Depression on the 1930s. This potential explosion has been created by dereliction of duty by the world’s largest central banks, which have helped to create an unsustainable illusion of personal wealth and national prosperity, exposing the public to uninsurable risks in the process. This volume looks at how this economic timebomb has been created by unchecked credit expansion and the potential havoc it could wreak.”
Now, twenty three years later, this “economic time bomb” is bigger than anyone could possibly imagine. And it’s one second to midnight.
Dr. Peter Warburton recently posted this on his website, 4 June 2022: (quote)
“There is a clear danger that global credit will transition rapidly from feast to famine, dragging down money supply growth in the process. If the Fed – and other central banks – implement quantitative tightening at the same time, then they will exacerbate the credit and monetary contraction in real terms. In that case, economic recession, asset price corrections and mounting defaults will arrive as a matter of course.”
Here’s my translation of the extremely optimistic forecast in the paragraph quoted above. I say optimistic because in my view it’s much, much worse. This is why.
The Black Hole of Fiat Destruction
1. Liquidity (credit) is being withdrawn globally by all banks.
2. Rising interest rates kill demand for credit which is the intention. The corollary of that is the risk of defaults on existing debt, thereby destroying economic growth, creating more bankruptcies and unemployment in a vicious cycle of rapid decline.
3. The tightening of monetary policy by raising interest rates and reducing bank’s balance sheets (assets as loans) will slow demand but because the global debt is so huge this is only buying a few months at best to avoid the inevitable reversing of policy and begin easing (lowering) rates again, increasing money supply exponentially, (again) and further debasing the currency to the point of being unacceptable to the public as the purchasing power is reduced to zero in an environment of hyperinflation.
4. There is no way out to avoid a catastrophic event in the globally interconnected monetary and financial system because by more creation of credit or more “money printing” will not buy any more time. The values of all stocks, bonds and property priced in dollars or Yen or Euros will be destroyed. This is an absolute certainty. Why? Because these currencies are based on nothing but faith and credit of the issuer who are central banks which are already insolvent. All except those in Russia and China. They have real goods and real commodities backing their respective economies and their currencies.
5. And the other course of action, raising interest rates to slow price inflation will be too little too late as the quadrillions in leveraged debt in all financial asset classes; stocks, bonds, and property, and derivatives in futures, swaps, options, exchange traded funds, margin calls, puts, calls, and OTC shadow banking, all denominated in a fiat currency dissappear into a black hole.
6. Remember, these “prices” were never real anyway but created by central banks over decades to keep inflating a balloon of debt to keep the ponzi scheme going while governments and central banks became one and the same. See Rafi Farber and his excellent interpretation of Exeter’s Pyramid where value of all derivatives is not lost but transferred to gold. This will happen as sure as death.
7. Growth without end is not the law of nature. Now the debt has become due and we must all sit down to the banquet of consequences.
A final point.
Unprecedented in history now there is complex technology, lighting fast communications, and an interconnected global financial system, with the internet and computers playing the indispensable role in the creation, maintenance, and saving of all data related to banking, currencies, debt and derivatives. This pinnacle of a supreme technology-reliant financial system guarantees the slightest catalyst will set off a chain reaction of the same speed, magnitude, and destructive power as a nuclear holocaust.
Since 1999 Russia and China have been planning and preparing for the predictable fallout from the exploding USD based global financial system.
An excellent summary with a useful link to Peter Warburton whose work I did not know.
The inevitable conclusion (precise timing of course is uncertain) is that the days are numbered for the financialized west which has become parasitic on humanity.
The only unclear outcome is what happens to the asset stripping jackals themselves. Let us hope a Mme Defarge and her tumbrils await these demons.
Many thanks for your comment J Huizinga.
While analysts like myself can only come up with timing predictions based on current and past events and data, the effects — or rather symptoms — of systemic decay are everywhere.
I’m looking at the debt market that has the greatest potential to bring down the system.
Meaning catastrophic rising bond yields in the US, ECB, BofE, and BoJ. And destruction, respectively, of the US $, the €, The £, and the ¥ .
By my reckoning this will occur before the year is out.
Russia and China are the best placed to weather the coming storm. Those countries that cooperate, trade, and align themselves through agreements and partnerships with these leaders in a monetary and financial reset of the global economy will also be the beneficiaries.
Leaders who value their populations and defend their sovereignty against plunder and their culture against malignancy, while not interferring with other nation’s foreign policies, but promote nothing but peace, goodwill, friendly relations, and pursuit of the truth in all things, are the antidote for the Empire of Lies.
I support everything I read of Peter Warburton on link. Increadible good.
This I think can be used as a leading indicator of GDP growth.
The latest price FED hike is too fresh to be reflected in graph . But It implies the graph will go through the floor.
I do not support Russia / China we be excepted from recession 2022. On the contrary.
What does Peter Warburton say about those two?
Peter Warburton is a Brit residing in Britain and as this post clearly demonstrates, he is not objective is his writing of the end of cheap food. This is as much as I could find of his reflections on Russia in the context of the current crisis. He does not mention China at all. I do not agree with his portrayal of events in Ukraine vis-à-vis food shortages, and laying the blame on Russia’s doorstep, when in fact the global energy, consumption, debt and inflationary environment is the primary cause of all shortages, which in turn began by the U.S exporting dollars, and inflation since the 1970s and running a permanent deficit, which supported the Empire of Lies’ hegemony until now.
This essay by Peter Warburton speaks more to his analysis of the debt based monetary system and why it is destined to fail with catastrophic consequences.
Peter Warburton: The debasement of world currency: It’s inflation but not as we know it
As you read, bear in mind this was written by him 20 years ago, but it’s more relevant than ever today.
I don’t know why nobody wants to see it, albeit it’s not only quiet but at a max obvious:
It’s _not_ about what in between some 100 years has been erroneously called Ukraine (for the most part in written history it’s been Kievan Rus and later on Malo Russia), it’s _not_ about Donbas or DNR or LNR, it’s _not_ the last eight, ten, fourteen years and the war against russian people in Nova Russia.
What we are seeing right before our very eyes is the Great Reset, the destruction of the – up until now – last empire (the empire of lies, the angle-saxon empire …)
All symptoms given in this article start to make sense when one doesn’t close his eyes for what is already reality. The reason why the so-called west is self-destructing is the next metamorphosis (like what again erroneously is called the french revolution, 1789) of the (maybe) eternal empire; this time at the expense of russian reputation.
The rising hyperinflation (up to what happened 1923 in Germany) in the western world at the same time is the annihilation of national debts in the US, the E/USSR and other countries (in Africa, Asia and Latin America) at the expense of … China.
Due to the planed reduction of at least the population of the collective West (think of Georgia Guidestones or the Club of Rome 1969/72), of course there will be civil wars in Northamerica and the western half of Europe.
After the metamorphosis (Great Reset) there will be almost no more trade between China and the no longer collective West and thus only a small amount of trade between other countries and regions of the world will remain.
It’s even possible the russian government already knows about this (Putin has often enough participated in WEF/Davos, CH) and therefor long time ago started to prepare for the Great Reset. Maybe that’s the reason for the smooth transition of russian trade routes, more so for the preparation for a smooth transitioning.
There is no holy world, it’s all men made.
So you are saying the Han Chinese is the exceptional and only race who will survive and inhabit the earth, and the white man plus some stinky minorities will be asked to dig their final graves in the desert, because someone have had it and enough is enough.
Is that what you are saying?
No, I’m just saying what is evolving right before our very eyes.
The US (of Northamerica, USN) as a ruling empire for more than 100 years is already collapsing (digging itself in the swamp it belongs to), because of debts, educational alienation, “Get woke, go broke”, Deep State, overload (800 billion $ a year) of the military-industrial complex … Before dying the USN will (for heaven’s sake!) use the E(USSR as a last resort, which therefor already has been drown (in it’s own swamp).
After the Thirty Years’ War it took round about 200 years before Europe got back to the level before the war started (meanwhile the maybe only 2nd epoch of relevance in human history, enlightenment, 18th century, flashed up, the 1st one has been Christianity since birth of Christ and the year 380, Edict of Thessalonica, death of Christianity)
My apprehensions are, this time there will be no more european comeback, and thus (Praise the Lord!) no one of the USN, too.
Of course there will be survivors on both side of the Atlantic, but of no more relevance.
Yeah, this is also what I have loosely concluded, US in handcuffs and Europe as third world with Royals and peasants.
“the annihilation of national debts […] at the expense of … China”
Well, China certainly has a lot of US treasury notes, but it amounts to less than 4% of the overall US debt. Japan actually is a bigger debtor than China. Even then, they together own less than 8% of the overall US debt.
If the US defaults on its debt, the biggest losers are actually the american people. US banks own almost 6% of the debt, and the pension funds and social security owns more than 20% of it.
So, there will be a lot of losers in case the US defaults, but the biggest losers will not be China, but the american people.
These figures were taken from https://wolfstreet.com/2022/05/19/who-bought-the-incredibly-spiking-us-government-debt-now-30-4-trillion-in-treasury-securities, which got from the Fed.
US public debt = $30 trillion
Total mortgage debt (private debt) = $27 trillion (from memory)
Then China debt = $1 trillion out of $57 trillion
China has no say here
What matters is stock market / bond market / interest rate-inflation and people being able to handle their debt.
When Google falls 30% it hurts for the elite. They lose
2.0 trillion -> $1.4 trillion -> -$600 billion
Just for the laughs… in case you’ve never seen it before:
“Are we the baddies?”
François-René de Chateaubriand says “There are two consequences in history; an immediate one, which is instantly recognized, and one in the distance, which is not at first perceived. These consequences often contradict each other; … look to the end of an accomplished fact, and you will see that it has always produced the contrary of what was expected from it.”
Christopher Story interviewed for the show “The Mcllhany Report” in 2003 about Anatoliy Golitsyn’s books, “New Lies for Old” and “The Perestroika Deception”.
Christopher points out how governments have been infiltrated, taken over and that Western countries are headed towards a condition of international and globalist controlled police States. However, he points the finger at “The Soviet” or calls it a “Leninist Strategy” as though “communism” is the engine behind these events. We live in a time of “information wars” where selected information is leaked to the common people for political reasons. Selected information, some truths and some subversive ideas are offered together, creating layers of deception. Statements should be matched up to real world observable events and facts to arrive at truth.
Here are some quotes from these interviews:
“… control over the foreign policy of this new globalist regional government that controls Russia, that controls Europe and controls Britain…”
“At the European level, no political party can participate in the European parliament if it’s not one hundred percent signed up to the idea of the European project.”
“…which will eventually provide for the same kind of internal passports or identification papers that were used in the Soviet Union.”
The Cold War was not won by the West. Instead it was a multi-decade long deception strategy from Russian KGB to deceive the West and to defeat U.S. and their allies and to implement a totalitarian-like world government. https://archive.elkie.online/forums/topic/christopher-story-interviews-the-perestroika-deception/
Yuri Bezmenov ex-KGB talk about the same, then we have two.
So the conclusion is Putin and Lavrov are actors, deceivers, role players, or are Putin and Lavrov innocent goody-goody-exploited and manipulated by the Joos in the most sneaky way doing the globalist’s work? Or what?
One way to view the scenario is Klaus Schwab admires Lenin enough to have his bust in his office. WEF is an ardent admirer of China. Maybe as much as Putin. Agamben writes: The form of capitalism that is being consolidated on a planetary scale is not that which it had assumed in the West: it is, rather, capitalism in its communist variation, which unites an extremely rapid development of production with a totalitarian political regime. This is the historical significance of the leading role that China is taking on, not only in the realm of the economy in a narrow sense, but also – as the political use of the pandemic has so eloquently demonstrated – as a paradigm for the government of men. https://enoughisenough14.org/2020/12/20/giorgio-agamben-communist-capitalism/
Thanks. I measure everything with facts on the ground.
Whatever the theoretical development will be, the Kremlin and Beijing team are more sound to listen too than those of the West.
Language compared to facts on the ground always reveal who we are, no matter how we try to disguise it.
Who was he?
He belongs to one faction of British freemasonry, loyal to the Queen, and very anti-Obama.
He termed his website “intelligence”.
Ian Greenhalgh was telling me about him. Could’ve sworn something was fishy, but didn’t know about the Freemasonry part until now
I read somewhere that it would be a great idea if Russia exchanged the captured Brits for Julian Assange. I think that’s a brilliant idea.
What if the Russians offered to exchange the captured Brits and the captured Americans for Assange?
That would be one of the most powerful PR moves the Russians could make. Truly. It would be earth shattering.
How could we suggest this to President Putin?
You still have not figured out that the Russians do not do anything for PR. All its moves Russia has done throughout the history have been for the guard and safety of the Motherland and its citizens. Assange has no value to Russia. He is a product of the CIA and will end up at the same place where he started. He has chosen his own destiny, by signing a deal with the devil, and he knew what would be potential consequences.
How would the relatives of the 14’000+ victims of these killers feel about it ?
Why would Russia interfere in the internal intrigues of Empire ?
The attacks have already started Mary, Uvalde TX being one of them. Start @ 3-4 minute mark.
I watched it until the guys said there were 25,000 Russian soldiers in Nicaragua ready to attach the USA. Please spare us experts like that guy!
Well,a search on Brave and what does it show? Ukraine is the start, the USA, the finish. Military jargon, prepositioning your assets.
This fits the amount of delusion in the whole affair is, however.
Just “after the Cold War”, really?
So the next move of the U.S is to put pressure on Lithuania to block Russian access.
I wonder what NATO would think if Russia countered with nuclear tipped hypersonic missles in Kaliningrad?
So the moron Europeans are the dopes on the front line of the new cold war that the U.S wanted so badly…and have now got.
Russia must fight on the front-line that the U.S doesn’t want, economically.
Shri Lanka is failing, I think the Russians would find it easy to buy a friend with Ukrainian grain.
Why not use Ukrainian grain…the Americans have been fighting the war with Russian assets they stole.
Sri Lanka is failing for a number of reasons but are not allowed to buy cheap oil from Russia, because USA is buying it up from middle dealers who are mixing it with other crude to defy, their very own sanctions.
It is the same with the wheat supplies, as the west claims that Russia is starving the world, and yet they are taking Ukraine wheat for themselves.
That is the nature of the Western oppressive world. A parasitical evil.
This is something I advocated in the past. I’m glad it has come to pass. Keeping doing this in all the liberated territories will be a great confidence building action. A lot of people will benefit from it, and be grateful to Russia for it:
Residents of Berdyansk, the new authorities wrote off all debts on utility bills for water in the amount of 27,000,000 hryvnia.
It is also expected to write off debts and loans in Ukrainian banks, as previously stated by representatives of the CAA of Zaporozhye region.
Similar events are expected in the Kherson region, which will certainly increase the involvement of the population in building a new life in the liberated territories.
The CAA of the Zaporozhye region officially forgives the residents of Free Zaporozhye:
1. All debts to Ukrainian banks.
2. All debts to Ukrainian microcredit organizations.
3. Any interest on these debts.
Haha a Russian friend asked a good question:
“Ukraine introduces VISA regime for Russians. And what are they implying: V i Z a !?”
True the V and Z are already being used by Russians in Ukraine,lol.
“…pig-headedness in Kiev means that they will now be forced to take control of the whole country…”
And this was not predictable? Even I, repeatedly, predicted it.
Putin: ”Nothing will be as before.”
W.B.Yeats poem on the uprising against British rule in Ireland.
”All has changed, changed utterly.”
” There is speculation that the British might plea for their release in exchange for Julian Assange.”
That would be great. Julian needs to be freed.
If Assange was a Russian citizen I would understand it. Yes, he is a victim of Western crimes but surely Russian soldiers are a priority ?
The moment Russia sits at a negotiating table, it loses by default, as it was the case for centuries.
One never engages anglosaxons, but through fire and death.
You don’t make agreements with Satan, you dismember the demon for eternity.
Tighten the economic noose around the wicked, strike final death blow, for there can be only One.
Russians, you make that mistake again, it will haunt you for eternity.
Time is Now.
Thank you Pater Batiushka
Europe for the Western [ie anglo-american] media consists only of 3-4 northwestern former Great Powers, all Protestant, though France is tolerated (Rothschild & Cie). The rest are occasionally mentioned locations, all ripe for abuse from these once “Great Powers” and their bosses.
The EU, far from united, is a prison containing 12 Orthodox countries in the ESE. This is a civilisational division of the most secret and serious kind – they hate and despise us because despite all logic (we are weak) they are somehow afraid of us. It has always been so since even before the Schism. For proof consider that the “Byzantine” empire is not even mentioned in Protestant and RC schoolbooks: 1000 years – poof! – cancelled.
The people of these Orthodox countries [sometimes even the puppet ‘leaders’] understand that Russia MUST win, because without the true great power of Russia to protect us, we shall be destroyed by our ancient enemy.
