The entire western media is in a full hysterical pitch about an imminent Russian attack. Embassies and non-critical personnel are being evacuated by most embassies of US colonies in the EU (and beyond, the Japanese are, apparently, also evacuating). Even though that self same media has promised us a Russian invasion for months and even years, this time around they seem to be even more hysterical than usual.
Foreign Minister Lavrov has declared that the Anglo-Saxons are up to something.
The head of Russian intelligence, Sergei Naryshkin said the same thing.
The Russian military is clearly on high alert. And not just in the eastern Ukraine.
I would say that the chances of a Anglo provocation over next few days, maybe weeks, are sky high.
My problem is that the parish which I attend is about a 3-4 hour drive one way, so I attend it once a month and I have to stay overnight. Which, in turn, means that I will be on the road most of Saturday, then at the church services on Sunday, then back on the road all day on Sunday. I always take a small laptop with me, but if the proverbial crapola hits the fan while I am on the road, there is nothing I can do. And neither do I want to cancel/report my trip, the hotel room is prepaid and, besides, with the Ukies and the Anglos, there has been so many false alarms that this one might be just one more.
Except that I have a really bad feeling this time. I hope and pray that I am wrong but, honestly, I think that the Donbass is about to explode, very soon, anytime starting now.
God willing, I will be back home (very) late Sunday and back at the blog on Monday.
One effect of my absence will be that it might take me more time to clear the comments flagged by the mods. I can mostly do that on my phone, so it should be okay, but please be patient if your comment takes a just a little longer than usual to be cleared (this only applies to comments intercepted by moderators, all the other will be posted at a normal speed, thank God we now have moderators covering all time-shifts again.
However, please also remember that the very first thing which ALWAYS happens with the Anglos attack is that they declare a crushing victory and shape the entire narrative around that. Remember that they have no staying power so a quick and dirty outcome is all they need.
So if the provocation/attack happens this week end, do NOT, repeat, NOT pay ANY attention to ANYTHING the western media has to say: even if you hear them tell you that 2+2=4 simply assume that this is false.
The western media is worse than worthless, it is toxic and highly misleading. It creates its own reality which has no overlap with the real world at all.
At the very least, we know that the western media will NEVER admit that the Ukronazis or the Anglos attacked first. As for news from the LDNR, the western IT giants will suppress it.
If/when the attack/provocation happens, it will take at least several days before what actually happened will start to become gradually more understandable. So the best habit is to wait 24 or even 48 hours before accepting any narrative or come to any conclusions, even temporary ones.
Still, if it all explodes, here are my recommendations on what to read/listen/watch:
You can get your official Russian info from here:
For the basic facts, go to these websites:
For commentary and analysis, I recommend these two:
Should there be a confirmed provocation/attack, I will open an open thread to collect and centralize the info and to discuss it. I will not, however, be able to participate until Monday morning.
That’s it on my end. It sure looks to me like all the pieces are on the board and that something will happen soon, possibly very soon. God willing, this will be just another case of “the boy who cried wolf”, but that is NOT something we can simply assume.
Hugs and cheers to all, see you on Monday,
Grateful for your recommendations. May Allah bless your trip, please pray for all of us, and for whatever is coming, inshallah Taala, it will not come to be.
I have the same nagging feeling the pawns are ready to jump, Western hysteria is ramped up to the max. Could not sleep last night, checking the news.
Enjoy your travels.
Russian intel services will be all over this. And 404 doesn’t want to be false flagged into oblivion. This is a great opportunity to catch CIA/MI6 red-handed.
The Russians are ALREADY all over this, hence the warning by Sergei Naryshkin, head of the SVR.
As for the GRU, it is involved by definition and is probably fully mobilized and ready for war.
I also fully expect the FSB and FSO to be no high alert.
Right now, the Russian bear is poised for a big, big fight.
I think that the goal here is, of course, to be fully ready
But it is also to send a message to the West: no pasaran!
Saker, know that Paul Craig Roberts agrees with your assessment (he just sent out an urgent column message to his readers).
I think Russian Intelligence has known about US/NATO’s plans for a false flag for some time now, hence the massive military exercises in Belarus, with the troops of the Eastern Military District being moved across the continent by rail and air, and the entire Russian navy being put out to sea. Russian forces are positioned in exactly the places they will need to be, in order to respond to a false flag and then clean house in Kiev and Ukraine.
But I have to think that those in charge of this evil Western operation will be made to pay, too. The insane neocon fools and NATO generals seem to think they can control this conflict and come out “winners”. They may be quite surprised to find a hypersonic missile headed in their direction.
ВС РФ есть тысячи единиц ТЯО (в15+ больше чем у США/НАТО) , клторое тут же применим. Надежные носители их гарантированно доставят по всем целям.
В ВС РФ 164-и БТГ и ПТЕ НП (немедленного применения) на ЗСН и ЮЗСН куда больше БТГ, чем там написано. И в мобразвертывании ВС мы НАТО/США намного их упредим, причем с большим запасом.
Высокоточных БР, КР наземного, воздушного, морского базирования у нас как грязи – нас универсальные ПУ под Ониксы/Калибры на всех комплексах. К тому же три ракетных крейсера из Средиземки в Черное идут – а если эти флагманы трех флотов из всех ПУ запустят …
И на закуску порекомендую идиотам ЕвроНАТО танки с ББМ внимательно считать, которые на расстоянии ночного марша – даже 200-250 км, которым по ж/д часа четыре ходу. Если конечно разглядят.
Про то что сразу будут слепоглухи – РЭБ все отключит: связь, управление, разведку … и то что войны и конфлиуты начинают имея превосходство в небе/воздухе, на море … тут и писать не стоит, чай не дети. Сегодня у России превосходство еще и на земле, в киберпространстве, и если вынудят – продемонстриуем и превосходство в космическом пространстве (оно есть, которое на “новых принципах” ))).
The RF Armed Forces have thousands of tactical nuclear weapons (15+ more than the US / NATO), which is immediately applicable. Reliable carriers are guaranteed to deliver them to all targets.
In the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, 164 BTG and PTE NP (immediate use) on ZSN and YuZSN are much more BTG than it is written there. And in the deployment of the Armed Forces, we will lead NATO / the USA by a lot ahead of them, and with a large margin.
We have high-precision ballistic missiles, land-based, air-based, sea-based launchers like dirt – we have universal launchers for Onyx / Caliber on all complexes. In addition, three missile cruisers from Mediterranean to Chernoye are going – and if these flagships of three fleets from all launchers launch …
And for a snack, I will recommend to the EuroNATO idiots to carefully consider tanks with AFVs, which are at a distance of a night march – even 200-250 km, which take four hours by rail. If they see it of course.
About the fact that they will immediately be deaf-blind – electronic warfare will turn off everything: communications, control, intelligence … and the fact that wars and conflicts begin with superiority in the sky / air, at sea … it’s not worth writing here, tea is not children. Today, Russia also has superiority on earth, in cyberspace, and if forced, we will demonstrate superiority in outer space (it exists, which is based on “new principles”))).
This may already have happened. Oddly enough, 40 out of 49 SpaceX Starlink “Internet satellites” were somehow affected by a “solar magnetic storm” and made non-functional. Hmmm, OK. Except the timing.
My inner conspiracy theory neurons say the hidden idea behind Starlink is a quick, wartime way to reestablish GPS after the main GPS satellites get zapped.
Why bother with ukronazis when everyone knows who’s pulling the strings? What is the point in doing so? Why pretend? I think the Iranian recipe is the only way to deal with these fascists. Period.
Putin-Biden phone talk scheduled for Saturday, February 12 – Kremlin spokesman”
“Biden” can definitely stop this insanity.
But, alas, he is the one pushing it the hardest.
So Putin must convince him that a Kabul 2.0 in Kiev or an abject military defeat in Europe will not help him in the upcoming elections. That is all they care about: stay in power at all and any cost.
“So Putin must convince him that……defeat in Europe will not help him in the upcoming elections”
I must disagree on this one. The stakes went high above Bidens career or even life. Not obeying orders of those who gave him his job is the only danger for him. His role is ceremonial.
UK/US best opportunity is to go for a break before end of Olympics, as China SHOULD be reluctant to join the party. All they need is a reason to destroy NS2, and then quickly go all diplomatic before Russia retaliates.
Putin should tell Biden that all LNG tankers in the world will share fate of pipeline, along with LNG terminals everywhere. Only then owners of Big Oil will allow their mindless puppet to back off.
“Only then owners of Big Oil will allow their mindless puppet to back off.” ==> Only then owners of Big Oil will ORDER their mindless puppet to back off.
How does Vladimir Putin talk to a literal shitstain wearing a blue suit?
“Biden” can stop stop this insanity only if you assume they are in charge. They are not. A very powerful force owns and controls “Biden”. This force doesn’t give one shit about Biden or “Biden”. This force is what I call the Global Bankster Cult.
4(четыре) группы влияния Госдепа:
– Аспенская стратегическая группа, “ястребиное” крыло Демпартии (Антон БлинкИн, Том Донилон – координатор азиатской политики при Совете по нацбезопасности, т. н.“азиатский царь” Байдена, нынешняя холодная полувойна с Китаем носит имя Курта Кэмпбелла…);
– Big Tech / GAFAM (Роберт Кляйн и более 20 постов: Эмили Хорн, Марк Шварц, Деон Скотт,Заида Заида, Джеффри Зиентс, …);
– клан Клинтона (Джейк Салливан, Уильям Бёрнс, …);
– клан Обамы (Джон Керри, Денис Макдоноу, Сьюзен Райс, …).
4 (four) groups of influence of the State Department:
– Aspen Strategic Group, the “hawkish” wing of the Democratic Party (Anton BlinkIn, Tom Donilon – Asian policy coordinator at the National Security Council, Biden’s so-called “Asian Czar”, the current cold semi-war with China bears the name of Kurt Campbell …);
– Big Tech / GAFAM (Robert Klein and over 20 posts: Emily Horn, Mark Schwartz, Deon Scott, Zaida Zaida, Jeffrey Zients, …);
– the Clinton clan (Jake Sullivan, William Burns, …);
– the Obama clan (John Kerry, Denis McDonough, Susan Rice, …).
Every wing of the Democratic Party is hawkish. Every wing of the Republican Party is hawkish. For example, Bernie Sanders voted for war many , many times including the bombing of Serbia.
In the USA, corporations and banks have completely taken over the government. This by definition is Fascism.
Probably a good time to mention the book, The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power by Joel Bakan. This gives clear insight into the why’s and how’s of corporate power in America and across the globe. Extremely insightful and interesting history of The Corporation.
The problem is Biden can be cut out of the loop by the CIA and the neocons. They have enough people in Ukraine to pull off a provocation. Then Biden has no choice but to go along with whatever happens. If he doesn’t, he’s a “weak President” and the Repugs and even the Democrats will crucify him.
And of course there’s always the probability that he’s in on the war and has decided it’s a good idea. The probability that he’s against the war in my opinion is lower than the probability that he will go along with the idea. Besides, as Martyanov keeps saying, these people don’t understand war, so Biden probably simply doesn’t understand what he has to lose here, no matter what Putin tells him.
Biden has no opinion about the war whatsoever and even if he did, it would have zero weight. He is a 100% puppet.
….yes…they steal presidential election 2020…there will be no peace with russians untill neocons/neolibs depart from DC……
Last minute harangue? I certainly hope Russians start conditioning their interfacing with the Western dimwits. Hopefully Putin would tell Biden Russians don’t want anymore threats and intimidation from the West, Russia is not scared.
“Putin and Biden plan to hold a telephone conversation on February 12
MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. The presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, at the initiative of the American side, plan to hold a telephone conversation on Saturday, February 12. This was reported to journalists by the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov.
“Indeed, the American side asked for a conversation with President Putin, and tomorrow evening Moscow time a conversation between the two presidents is planned,” the Kremlin spokesman said.
Peskov stressed that “the request was preceded by a written appeal from the American side.”
Earlier on Friday, a possible telephone conversation between Biden and Putin was announced at a briefing at the White House by ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT FOR NATIONAL SECURITY Jake Sullivan…”
at the initiative of the American side
This is very good news.
the request was preceded by a written appeal from the American side.”
And this is even better.
I would not be optimistic Saker.
Possibly, likely? “Biden” will warn Putin to not intervene or there will be “consequences”. Putin, of course, will tell him politely to take a hike.
Rab, can I call you Rab, Robert? Nom de Plume from North of the Border of England, Rab(bie) Burns, The Bruce etc. You may or may not know.
Anyway I’m more confident now all’s well after Liz Truss and Macaroon Boy didn’t come home from Moscow last week waving a Signed Treaty as they disembarked that Russia wouldn’t attack Ukraine.
American media is saying that the request came from the Russian side. So, even on something so mundane there is no agreement.
Were I Putin and the Russian General Staff and the wire was tripped, I would roll the dice, remove the heads of the snake and let the chips fall where they may. Somehow I think they are beyond falling for the silly trap of engaging Ukraine in a war. I believe the “orcs” (such an apropos term) would cease the fight once their generals became aware of their masters’ demise.
Only then will they ‘FEEL’ the consequences of war.
It is obvious something will happen, otherwise they wouldn’t evacuate. Expect a false flag operation carried out by the ukies, blamed on the russians. Just like old times
May God bring peace to the planet, and may we all learn valuable lessons from this moment, and may all this serve as a reflection for all humanity, and may we have faith to deal with all things. May everyone understand the role of humanity on this beautiful blue planet!
Your comment is very touching, but frankly quite useless. The people pulling the strings of this world need people exactly like you to keep their game going. Wishing for “God” to bring “peace” ain’t gonna cut it – we need to hunt down the criminals who understand your weak psychology and use it against you, and lock them up and/or eradicate them from the gene pool.
Sorry, but the solution to this problem needs to be very different from the passive, dreamtime way of existence we have been trained in. Those people are sick and pure evil, they must be dealt with strongly and confidently.
I sure hope that if/when things flare up over there, Russia deals with it with a very tough hand and goes DIRECTLY after the psychopaths co-ordinating this whole thing. It’s time all of decent humanity grows some balls and takes these people out once and for all.
The problem Rob, is, who is ‘we’?
I have all but given up on the american people doing something, anything, to stop this shit show. And I am not just referring to the Ukraine. I understand the destruction was started before, but Clintons, then Obama and cronies really bollocks’d things up but good here. They create mayhem at home, then do their dirty work abroad, killing and plundering in the name of America. Now they have fearlessly rigged the voting system. You KNOW they don’t care anymore. Many Americans are despondent, and fearful of government going after them for raising their voice. That is why I ask, who is ‘we’?
A wing of B52s arrived at RAF Fairfield today, 11/02/2022. The build up of hardware is stepping up. Hopefully this is just a “show of force” and nothing more. The last thing this world needs is for someone to do something remarkably stupid and step completely into Thucydides Trap.
I don’t trust the fools in Washington DC not to be stupid.
It is crap.
The B-52 cannot penetrate Russian A2/AA areas.
They can only fire pretty slow cruise missiles which are not hard to shoot down.
The Russian might well fire one of their very long range missiles, be it from the ground or air.
Ditto for US AWACS
The least bad bomber of the USAF is, I would submit, the B-1B.
The problem is that the USA has zero air defenses and close to zero modern cruise missiles.
Russia has both :-)
I agree. The B52s can only use out dated stand off munitions. They’d be useless for full scale bombing of, say, Kaliningrad until Russia’s A2/AD has been sufficiently degraded. I doubt they have enough cruise missiles in stock in the UK to manage that unless UK and Poland decide to put ground forces into Kaliningrad.
I’m pretty sure it’s just a show of force because of their iconic status.
Problem is, I just don’t trust the idiots in Washington DC not to do something remarkably stupid. Which the, possibly even bigger, idiots in Westminster will copy.
I’m fully expecting some kind of false flag along the contact line. Especially as the USA is pulling it’s nationals out of the OSCE monitoring team.
The fools in Washington are seeing their approval ratings approach single digits, with the midterm elections not too far away. They may just see war – any kind of war – as their only change of hanging on to power.
I agree, with the added longer-term issue related to the impossibile double-bind the whole western casino capiutalism has gotten itself into since (well. Nixon, … Clinton,…) Obama bailed out the bankrupt institutions/banks in 2007-9 rather than nationalise them etc.
The economic theory is “F” for fail and they know it. And without fundamental change they cannot compete with China or Russia (and especially not combined). They know only one way to smash the game board and hide/reset all the $Trillion “free lunch” debt etc — war.
And it will help solve the domestic woke-political problem of real men with big trucks forcing the Canadian government (and possible others as it snowballs) to face reality and back off with their new-world-order faux ’emergency’ mandates etc. We’ll soon be back to that lazy-crazy boy-Bush doctrine of “if you are not with us you are with the enemy” BS etc. Two birds, one stone.
Those B52s are just big fat sitting ducks. Its PR for the masses. There wouldn’t be photos of landings at Fairfield in the MSM otherwise. Smae with aircraft carriers.
It was 4 B-52s, not a whole wing. I believe there is only 1 wing.
RAF Fairford (not “Fairfield”).
I hope Russia has tasked a geostationary reconnaissance satellite over the Donbass region to capture imagery on the ground in real-time, 24-7.
There is no better evidence than full motion video zoomed in to record the UAF and their NATO cohorts in action for all the world to see including the membership of the United Nations General Assembly.
If I remember correctly, for that you need low earth satellites, not geostationary (which are very high).
Side Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR) also work well.
in reality, in the modern Russian military, all the data from all the sensors is fused. Including EW units and even over the horizon radars.
I think that we can take it to the bank that Russia has some kind of sensor on every twig in the LDNR and the adjacent Nazi occupied territories.
I think it might have been Scott Manley that I learned about this from:
The “keyhole” orbit. Innovated by Soviet space scientists back in the cold war — an elliptical, looping orbit that hangs high over the area being surveilled, and then does a quick loop around the other side of earth. It maximizes the time the satellite spends over the desired area, at the expense of a somewhat longer telescope. Also, the orbit of something launched from Russia necessarily has a high inclination — a geostationary satellite must be launched from close to the equator.
Geostationary satellites are ~34000km up by geophysical requirements, photo reconnaissance ~500km up. Lower orbit gets more drag and lowers lifetime as satellites need to carry some kind of rocket fuel to maintain position (often He).
Such orbits can be engineered so that they precess (still be at an inclination of 60 degrees, but the apogee would revolve, with respect to the cosmos) and follow earth’s rotation, to keep coming up over the same spot on the ground. I do not understand orbital mechanics well enough to explain, but it has to do with the fact that the earth is not a perfect sphere, and orbits are affected by the uneven distribution of mass, as well as being elliptical orbits.
The bottom line is that 2 or 3 good satellites can cooperate in such synchronized orbits, keeping a desired area under continuous 24/7 observation.
And as you have said, Saker, they are low earth orbits and not those far-away geostationary ones. They can get excellent photographs in clear air. (perhaps seeing through clouds in other wavelengths)..
February 12, 2022
I’m replying to my first post to clarify what I meant by “tasking a geostationary reconnaissance satellite.”
Firstly, Russia successfully launched a recon satellite dubbed Kosmos-2553 into LEO (Low Earth Orbit) on February 5, 2022. The altitude of the imaging spacecraft is around 1,200 miles and orbits the Earth about once every two hours.
See: http://www.russianspaceweb.com/neitron.html .
I read from an article published back in 2011 that,
“Earth observation uses a large number of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites (ca. 400). The increasing resolution of their instruments has inflated the data volumes that need to be transmitted. The low altitudes limit the contact times, which is challenging both with respect to the data volumes and delay until data can be transmitted. Geostationary satellite (GEO) relaying is thus a promising alternative.“
See: https://www.semanticscholar.org/paper/Precise-positioning-of-a-geostationary-data-relay-Knogl-Henkel/5313c2a45b2a5699c3e7974ba0d760508872d074 .
Okay, so what? I’m getting to that . . .
The Russian civilian purposed, GEO (Geostationary Satellite) Luch-5A is part of the space relay system that facilitates broadband transmission between the Russian segment of the ISS Space Station and the ground. it also is used to ” . . . ensuring uninterrupted television broadcasting throughout Russia.”
See: https://old.vdnh.ru/en/news/v-pavilone-kosmos-na-vdnkh-ustanovili-maket-sputnika-retranslyatora-luch-5a/ .
So the Russian military has a way to capture LEO (Kosmos-2553) imagery real-time and relay it via GEO (Luch-5A, 5B, 5V) to other military assets such as: ancillary ground command centers, naval surface ships, submarines, mobile hand-held display devices, etc.
So that’s where I was coming from; at least it sounds plausible, doesn’t it?
That sounds more than plausible, it sounds likely.
The Russian military can probably get secure, real-time, continuous satellite video of any point on the planet – in a variety of bands/wavelengths.
It probably also serves as input to the sensor fusion mentioned by Andrei Martyanov. Any object or person can be tracked in real-time, and cannot hide.
But of course with that said, we know from the past 7 or 8 years (and longer), the globohomo media, along with the OSCE, will simply tell a story which has no relationship with reality. And, as in that passage from Eric Blair’s essay on the Spanish Civil War, they will retail these lies in the salons and newspapers, where ‘experts’ will rend their bodices and clutch their pearls, and demand that something must be done…
Sadly, in that (not so) unthinkable event, there will be “radio silence” between readers and this webpage (and others of this kind). They see and listen to everything. Even if I wouldn’t go silent, they will cut off all means of communications and enemy propaganda. I hope this terrible event never occurs, but if it does then maybe some VPN providers could make possible some secure tunnel to read and write.
May God be with us.
The biggest clue some provocation is upcoming? One word: projection. When Uncle Scam accuses someone of doing a bad deed or scolds someone for misbehaving, it is they who are guilty. The Biden regime’s warning about upcoming false flag incident during the Olympics is actually a CIA/MI6 planned action.
That said, have a good trip Saker!
That warning was so lame. So obvious.
And I expect those who dreamed this up thought it was extremely clever.
Like fourth-dimensional game theory, or some such.
Good luck and stay safe. until next time.
God bless you.
Thank you Mr. Saker.
These are dark, difficult and dangerous times. The next 3 years are going to be utterly miserable.
There is hope and light at the end of the tunnel, though. I don’t think the Democrats can ever hope to win another election again, even if they resort to cheating.
God speed brother.
Thanks for the list Andrei.
The western media is worse than worthless, it is toxic and highly misleading.
You bet! They’re the propaganda arm of the AZEmpire, complicit in every war crime committed by the Empire for the last three decades.
Have a safe and pleasant drive to your church and back. Cheers.
One way Russia could help the LDNR is to allow (encourage) Russian volunteers like we saw in 2014-15 flood into the territory.And let Wagner,or similar groups go there as well.Those things would help make up for the numbers deficit that the LDNR faces with the Ukies.And also be an answer to the Western mercs that the Ukies have brought in.As well as giving Russia the same kind of deniability that the West uses countlessly.
Good news. Wonder what military hardware would take priority in the direction of Donbass.
Russian deputies supported the supply of weapons to the LDNR
During the consultations, Russian parliamentarians supported the initiative to supply military and humanitarian aid to the Donbass republics. This was announced in his Telegram by the Speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin, the correspondent of “Donbass Today” reports.
At the same time, according to him, the LDPR expressed an even more radical position. At the same time, the New People party has not yet outlined a clear attitude to this issue.
The head of the parliament noted that the lives of Russian citizens on the territory of the people’s republics are at stake, since despite the expiration of seven years since the signing of the Minsk agreements, the Ukrainian leadership continues to sabotage their implementation, which entails the death of civilians. According to Volodin, the search for a solution to this situation is necessary.
The Chairman of the State Duma also said that the issue of official recognition of the Donbass republics by Russia will be considered on February 14. Meanwhile, militaristic panic is growing in Ukraine – the Prosecutor General’s Office, the DIU and the SBU are urgently evacuating documents, and officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing to evacuate their families.
This is all very VERY good news.
I might be in the minority, but my gut feeling tells me that the LDNR defenses will hold against the Ukies.
If that happens, Russia does not have to intervene overtly (semi-covertly she could use her standoff weapons, EW and special forces) and that is the best outcome we can hope for. I think that is is possible. Not certain. Dunno how likely. But possible.
I will go with that.
ВС ЛДНР никогда не воевали ни как Вс, ни группами-отрядами , это гражданские ряженные казачки, которые охраняли/оъраняют активы местных олигархов.
На них и не было в ГШ МО РФ надежды, никакой и никогда. А остальное верно. Спецов там видно и не будет, а если будут – не увидишь. Наверное пойдет алгоритму – увольнение в запас, а следом в ЧВК “туристом” (но на время))).
“Бабахнем”, может снова Кремль остановит, но уж у границы Луганской и Донецкой, если опять нам не запретят приказом брать беззащитный Мариуполь с Харьковом, то я уже не знаю что и думать.
The Armed Forces of the LDNR never fought either as a Sun or in groups of detachments, these are civilian mummers Cossacks who guarded / guarded the assets of local oligarchs.
There was no hope for them in the General Staff of the RF Ministry of Defense, no and never. And the rest is correct. Specialists are visible and will not be there, and if they are, you will not see them. Probably the algorithm will go – dismissal to the reserve, and then to the PMC as a “tourist” (but for a while))).
“Babahnym”, maybe the Kremlin will stop again, but already at the border of Lugansk and Donetsk, if again we are not forbidden by order to take the defenseless Mariupol with Kharkov, then I don’t know what to think.
Correction…The Black Lives Matter=Democratic Party is up to something…..and we all know what that is:
Encouraging the Nazi Azov Brigade to fire artillery shells into Donbass…slaughtering young pregnant Orthodox Christian Russian Women…..which happened in 2014 when the Black Lives Matter Obama Administration ruled America…
I think our facts should be very accurate as to who is behind the War Crimes in Eastern Ukraine.
You sir, frankly need to gather more facts. No one seems to be challenging your borderline racist views – a la BLM are the war mongering ones while the pristine non-Black ones aka Republicans are peace loving.
There were no more hawkish people than the Repubs, e.g. McCain, Lindsay et al.
If you just let be said that the US as a whole benefits greatly from war, and hence wages it incessantly around the globe, you would have no argument from me!
Hi Andre, despite all the evil that the Anglo-Zionists are cooking up I think that you should take Sunday off and drive back on Monday. Watch the Superbowl and drink some beers!
All the best,
Gute fahrt as they say in Germany.
I’m tipping a false flag on an anglo country.
Comic AZ Empire relief:
Your suspicions are warranted. NPR was on full psycho mode this morning, and the NYT has been hyping an imminent invasion all afternoon, against all evidence. Something is going to happen, and it can only be a false flag by the West or a Western orchestrated attack on Donbass, the only purpose of which is to sacrifice Ukraine in order to fortify US empire in Western Europe.
This could be a situation where USA is saying to Russia “Do X,Y and Z or we will do a false flag . As Paul Craig Roberts said today “Russia should seize the initiative”. Don’t put yourself in a situation where you are forced to react. To maximize the element of surprise, Russia should engage in a very power military technical act 1 hour before Biden is scheduled to call Putin tomorrow. Stop F*cking negotiating with terroists!
I sincerely hope that I am wrong but I have a terrible feeling right now re that US/UK/UA false flag
Sth much bigger and more sinister than some attack in Donbass might be cooked up.
Think an attack on Kiev (missiles, bombs) which then to blame Russia for. US and Russia both KNOW that Russia has zero plans to attack Kiev, yet BOTH evacuate their staff!
You can be certain that the US is in possession of Russian missiles and airplanes that they could use for that. Super easy to fire US missiles from Uki air space near Russian border at Kiev and then place wreckage of USSR-made or Russia-made missiles at the spots of impact. There will never be an independent investigation, so a few photographs will just do the trick.
There’s unfortunately pretty little Russia can do to spoil such an attack.
I sincerely hope that I am wrong but you must always expect the worst from the US and UK
Off topic…a little bit..
Have you been to the Russian Orthodox Cathedral in the bucolic Mohawk Valley Upstate New York?..It’s over a hundred years old. It’s around 7 hours from where I live on the East End….
US media has set the stage for an ‘imminent Russia invasion’ and false flag attack. European ‘diplomats’ (an oxymoronic phrase at best) continue to posture. Warnings to US citizens to withdraw from Ukraine (except special forces, advisors, and mercs), massive weapons drops in Ukraine, US reinforcements in route … all indications are that preparations for a US false flag are complete and that it will be dropped in the next few days.
On one hand this is terrifying as the US psychopaths control a nuclear arsenal capable of obliterating humanity.
On the other hand it is hopeful – not that war will somehow be avoided but that a new world order of peace and prosperity will emerge from not-too-much rubble. doG knows we have more than enough critical problems without wars waged for economic gain.
Contrary to my name, I am trying to be optimistic.
I hear South Korea has also asked its citizens to leave Ukraine.
It looks almost as if USA is about to stage a false Russian invasion of Ukraine with Russian tanks driving all the way to Kiev. They will then establish a pro-Russian administration in Ukraine and claim Russia did it.
Thank you very mucho.
Well, today NPR said “Putin has decided to invade”, apparently based on something Jake Sullivan said, then five minutes later Sullivan says, “no, we don’t know that”. This reminds me of Bloomberg “accidentally” publishing a “Russia invades Ukraine” headline on their Web site.
It appears to me that there is an active media campaign going on to confuse the US electorate. Not just the usual propaganda, mind you, but an effort to confuse the public as to whether the war has already started or will start within the next few days.
This is a degree of hysteria rising that beggars anything done during the run up to the Iraq war. One wonders how this could be kept up if Russia resolutely does not invade for the next month, six months, forever. It implies that the US has decided there will be a war and it intends to start it within a very short time frame.
I think it is more the inability to effectively control the media campaign. The messages get mixed with the same level of incompetence that is evident in governance, law, finance, military affairs, etc.
Either that or there are a couple of factions trying to manipulate slightly different outcomes.
Reminds me of 9-11 when news organizations reported the collapse of WTC7 before it happened.
Could just be blaming the Russians for the market collapse, or maybe “Biden to save the day.” I think you go after ranger guerrillas with drones. Does Russia have drones? Modern warfare is drones versus Electric Warfare, and Russia seems to have an advantage there.
Russia has drones, lots of them.
Do you think that what is happening (bloomberg is talking about a false flag and a invasion next week) is related to the fact that on monday the Duma will vote to recognize the PRL and PRD?
I would like to focus on the false flag.
They can not be sure a false flag will force Russia to do something. In one of his last articles Andrei Martyanov talked about the risk of a really big false flag. If the false flag is really big it could be used as a pretext for 404 to declare war against Russia with western support like for Georgia in 2008. At this point Russia will have no other choice than to fight and in the western narrative Russia will be the bad guy as usual. This will be used to push forward the sanctions. The US wants to cut Europe from Russia. In the minds of current maniacs in the US it s a flawless plan.
Finally I would like to know how you assess the risks that a false flag would trigger something bigger than a war in 404. I mean the Russian government warned many times that in case of war they would retaliate against those who took the decisions and it s clear that the decisions are not being taken in kiev but in western capitals.
Georgia in 2008 had no “western support”. It had Nato lip service before they decided to attack. I guess Ukraine would be the same.
Too many things are coming to a head in the next week:
Fed interest rate increase (7% inflation and 0% interest rates?)
Canadian truckers have to be forcibly removed or negotiated with ($1 billion/day at least in losses)
Biden’s approval is too low to continue governing (you can’t run a country on 30% approval and 50% disapproval)
Ukraine narrative is at fever pitch (put up or shut up time)
and COVID is over but won’t go there.
Multiple other trends have reached their end game (liberals are turning on each other in the West, population growth is now negative in all Western nations, debt levels are unsustainable, trust in institutions is rock-bottom, Western pop culture is unwatchable garbage etc.).
What does it all mean? Paradigm shifts ahead…
Whatever happens, thank you for enlightening me with your commentary. Finding your site has been a lifesaver. Seriously, I would have gone insane if all I had was US media to guide me through the last few years.
So Russia will be on high alert with all the EW & all the Wise Men

OODA loop – Observe, Orient, Decide, Act
After Donbass is attacked, Russia wipe out everything of potential threat inside Ukraine, Romania and Poland, half a dozen US bases in the UK (as promised, not just the fodder, but the Puppeteers) plus anything else inside the EU it feels made or will Highly Likely make a contribution to NATOZ HUBRIS. Remember Russia now has 1st Strike Option should 5000 Troops-Infrastructure is hit in Donbass.
Doesn’t sound like much of a PLAN from UNCLE SAM, suicide has never been shown to improve anyone’s future prospects; only on occasion a few Next of Kin, and you can be certain that the Natural Survival Instinct of these Cowards, far and above supporting USS Satan, 1st and Foremost, is SELF PRESERVATION.
I give it 2-3 weeks for the above to pan out, about the same time it took to nullify the Kazakhstan Vagina Monologue Chronicles.
Russia & China order All US Forces to leave/close Foreign Military Bases within 72 Hours, in EU, Saudi, Qatar, Syria, Iraq Japan, S. Korea, South America, Turkey . . . . . .

Interesting comment I saw on RT:
About a week ago there was a Youtube poll (in Russian) by a Ukrainian TV channel , asking its viewers what they think about the possible Russian invasion. Lots of comments were from Russians, some from Ukrainians. The three most hilarious were: 1. (from a Ukrainian woman) “Please, invade as soon as possible, we can’t wait to welcome you!”; 2. (from a Russian) “Putin said you have to spend you own money” (i.e . don’t wait for Russia to invade and fix your problems); and 3) (from a Russian) “the right to be occupied has to be earned!”.
I also read that and almost spilt my can of Stella Artois, the only thing/product of value (well that and several other beers to be fair ) to come out of Belgium.
Hopefully Russian forces completely liberate the Ukraine in the next few days/hours. God be with them.
Thanks for the additional sources!
США проиграли РУ(Республику Украина/РУину), а скоро проиграют и ЕС
Свое массовое бегство США скрывают дымовой завесой – «войной» на О/Украине, которая является техническим банкротом с 2014 года.
США в РУ повторяют свой «блестящий» Афганский сценарий военно-технической операции по снабжению террористов вооружением, военной и специальной техникой (ВВСТ).
В мае США одобрили последнюю поставку военной техники талибам (ИГИЛ, Аль-Каида, …), направив в свои войска и регулярную афганскую армию сотни тонн оружия и снаряжения.
В июне-июле продолжали активно накачивать новейшие виды вооружений. Надеясь поджечь нефтегазовую Среднюю Азию, перекрыв артерию КНР-РФ-ЕС.
И в августе 2021 года военный контингент США вместе с дипломатическим корпусом в панике покинули Афганистан.
Как видите, в отношении У_р_ины Вашингтон последовательно применяет тактику Третьего Рейха, оставляя после себя лишь выжженную землю и террористов-диверсантов.
Небольшая разница между Афганом и Хрюкаиной заключается в том, что сегодня в США прекрасно понимают, как закончится их операция – очередным профессионально-трусливым бегством из Восточной Европы. И не только из Восточной…
Поэтому эвакуируют свои спецслужбы, административную поддержку нацистского режима РУ и доллары.
К сведению, США поставляют оружие и военную технику как официально, так и тайно. При этом объемы «серых» и «черных»/тайных поставок (контрабанда) на порядки превышают официальные.
Вашингтон планирует вооружить радикалов, боевиков нацистского батальона и прочих террористов, которых США уже готовы перебросить с Ближнего Востока, Африки и Средней Азии.
ПС Скорей бы уж, а то нам ТЯО некуда девать. Которого у нас в 15+ раз больше чем у США/НАТО, Росатом днем и ночью их “штампует”. А ГСХ (госсрокхранения) проходит, надо поддерживать процесс – продлевать… дешевле их, – ЯЗ, – утилизировать на … ! ))) К сведению, как увидите в расположении какого-нибудь артдивизиона оборудованную вертолетную площадку, то знайте – это для доставки ЯБП (ядерных боеприпасов))).
Про ЗРК и пр. комплексы всех сред/доменов я уж молчу – высокоточно всех откалибруем, отцирконим, отониксуем, откинжалим, отгранитим … и отфабим, а лакернём все Тосочкой, точнее написать отогнемётим!
И похороним всех “гадаринских свиней” в одной могиле, там все равно уже не разберешь.
The USA lost to RU (Republic of Ukraine / RUin), and soon the EU will also lose
The United States is hiding its exodus with a smoke screen – the “war” in O/Ukraine, which has been technically bankrupt since 2014.
The United States in Uzbekistan is repeating its “brilliant” Afghan scenario of a military-technical operation to supply terrorists with weapons, military and special equipment (AMSE).
Let me remind you
In May, the US approved the last supply of military equipment to the Taliban (ISIS, Al-Qaeda, …), sending hundreds of tons of weapons and equipment to its troops and the regular Afghan army.
In June-July, they continued to actively pump up the latest types of weapons. Hoping to set fire to oil and gas Central Asia, blocking the artery of the PRC-RF-EU.
And in August 2021, the US military contingent, along with the diplomatic corps, left Afghanistan in a panic.
As you can see, in relation to U_r_ina, Washington consistently applies the tactics of the Third Reich, leaving behind only scorched earth and terrorist saboteurs.
The slight difference between Afghan and Khryukaina is that today in the US they are well aware of how their operation will end – another professionally cowardly flight from Eastern Europe. And not only from Eastern…
Therefore, they evacuate their special services, the administrative support of the Nazi regime of Uzbekistan and dollars.
For your information, the United States supplies weapons and military equipment both officially and secretly. At the same time, the volumes of “gray” and “black”/secret supplies (smuggling) are orders of magnitude higher than the official ones.
Washington plans to arm the radicals, Nazi battalion militants and other terrorists, whom the United States is already ready to transfer from the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.
PS Hurry, otherwise we have nowhere to put tactical nuclear weapons. Which we have 15+ times more than the USA / NATO, Rosatom “stamps” them day and night. And the GSH (state storage) is passing, it is necessary to support the process – to extend … cheaper than them, – YaZ, – to be disposed of for …! ))) For your information, when you see an equipped helipad in the location of some artillery division, then you should know that this is for the delivery of nuclear warheads (nuclear ammunition))).
About air defense systems and other complexes of all environments / domains, I’m already silent – we’ll calibrate everyone with high precision, zirconize, otonicize, dagger, granite … and otfabim, and laquer everything Tosochka, or rather, write off the flamethrower!
And we will bury all the “Gadarin pigs” in one grave, you can’t make it out there anyway.
That’s the Spirit Andrew!
Should America not withdraw to 1990 NATO borders, every US Base built after in Europe is Gone.
PS Russia, if you have the time Hit The BBC Tower for Your Friends in Blighty soon after. Save us from the barrage of Propaganda, it’s excruciating.
OK, я лучше им привет воздушный передам… в полмегатонны сверхвысокоточный. )))
OK, I’d rather say hello to them by air … half a megaton ultra-high precision. )))
I read somewhere – according to Naryshkin there are jihadis from Idlib/Syria lined to attack Donbass, through flights from Turkey. The source is “unverified” so won’t even post it, but it could be plausible.
Так и есть.
К тому же, Нарышкин, как и Путин, никогда не лжет – нет смысла.
США объявили сламистам сбор и оплатили по своим каналам… Недавно в Казахстане их вынудили на фальстарт (должны были все выступить в начале лета).
And there is.
In addition, Naryshkin, like Putin, never lies – there is no point.
The United States announced a fee to the slamists and paid through their own channels … Recently in Kazakhstan they were forced to a false start (they were all supposed to perform at the beginning of the summer).
Some breaking news from 20 minutes ago: There is DPR intelligence which says that hundreds of American and Polish mercenaries are arriving at the contact line. If I had to guess, maybe they are the ones that will provoke any false flag and propaganda incidents; which would then force the Ukrainian military to follow their lead.
Pushilin said he will ask for Russian assistance if the situation deteriorates for the DPR/LPR. Though I have hope they will bravely be able to defend their lines well.
All false flags will come from PL PMCs, UA nazis (Azov, Ukrop, right sector, etc), Blackwater (Academi), CIA, SIS (MI5/MI6), WSI, CSIS and throw in some special forces like SEALs for the kicker.
And entirely possible that the NATO could identify the Ukrainian nazi problem, attack and kill them, then brand it as russian aggression and then this whole situation spirals out of control drastically.
Literally nobody from the general populace knows that’s a thing, despite there are many many photos and videos showing the nazi problem. I don’t use google to search anything so I am not sure if they already nuked all incriminating photos from the search or not.
Safe travels, Andrei. God be with you.
Somehow I don’t believe Russia would stop at ‘securing’ 404 Ukraine, even if they were to blockade the Black sea and penetrate the South of Ukraine right through Odessa to join the Transnistria enclave, one has to only look at the map to realize that also a land corridor from Belarus to Kaliningrad would cut out the Baltic States from the rest of Europe and an applied blockade there would be very hard to dislodge no matter what, and in fact this would be fitting to Russia security concerns, regardless of all sanctions the West would throw at them, they would have the upper hand… If you are going to risk a full war, you must take advantage at throwing the first punch and prepare for secondary responses… and I’m sure Holy Russia knows that.

“… one has to only look at the map to realize that also a land corridor from Belarus to Kaliningrad would cut out the Baltic States from the rest of Europe…”
The Suwalki Gap aka the Suwalki Corridor.
The trust in Western Governments and their Supra-national institutions like WHO, IMF, World Bank, WTO is gone for good. That is why the western elite want to blow-up the world in a WWIII, and hoping that suffering people worldwide will follow these satanic elite again into their new satanic world order.
Oh God Almighty appoint for us righteous leaders (Imam Mehdi, may God Almighty be pleased with him) and send Prophet Jesus (peace and blessings be upon him, and his Blessed Mother, Mary, Amen) for the second times to deal with the money lenders…as he (peace and blessings be upon him, and his Blessed Mother Mary, Amen) the first time. Amen!
May Allah Mighty and Majestic give victory in this last war to Orthodox Christian Russia, if they stand for Truth and Justice for all, and join the righteous Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists and Pagans in their struggle for Justice, Amen!

“Biden: We Don’t want World War — Ukraine Crisi Tensions High”
It is now officially “denied” (that it’s the USA/Nato pushing it) so “game on” it seems. It won’t be WW1 slogging in the trenches; nor WW2 dumb bombing civilian cities; … rather asymetrical “out of the box” events and precision key-hole surgery with hyper missile tech on offending (the Russian red lines, c. 4Q2021) military and decision making infrastructure.
Net outcome (apart for ‘Biden the War president’ for mid-term 2022 vs Trump ‘the sore loser’ 2.0) will be more reactionary “for us or agaist us” boy-Bush (and Blair) psychotic narrative — the Canadian truckers alienated as ‘Putin stooges’ etc and a whole lot of western economic turmoil as they covertly try and reset (cancel) the $trillions of capital “free lunch” debt on the books.
Get ready to “Brace!” … (popcorn times again… unfortunately for those on the front lines).
[Newspaper (of advertising $revenue from the fringe): West Australian, Sat Feb 12-Feb-22, p. 40]
Bottom-line: they may not want a world-scale war (to finish off the crumbling empire) — but a nice fat regional one that justifies “emergency powers” for a few more months/years & and mega-sanctions to maintain European colonies/markets etc is just fine & what the doctor ordered.
…very well said, so may be it is time for the Houthies of Yemen to start teaching a few energy lessons to the Sheiks in SA, UAE. It will immediately awaken the sleepy Joe Biden and his handlers. No need to fight off clueless young soldiers from Ukraine just right away.
What would Biden tell Putin that is so important it merited “a written appeal” from the US?
Russia’s Damocles sword on Ukraine has the West running scared like ladies before a mouse. Putin is a PSYOPS master, he knew very well his denials about invading Ukraine were not going to be seen as truthful. Therefore, he continued to play the “military exercises” game, while piling up troops, and pressure, on Ukraine. The West’s hysteria reached a crescendo this week, evacuations and potential dates for an invasion have the presstitutes busy. Bloomberg, for which the Russians already invaded 404, is again betting next Tuesday will be the day the Russians cross the Rubicon (is this a second invasion?)
Biden has been fanning the flames of hysteria day in and day out. He met lapdog Scholz early this week, and treated him like a doormat, threatening to kill NS2 with Schulz present, as if he were the German chancellor. Macron met Putin across a 20+ ft table that signifies the distance between Russia and Eurostan. Macron promised to find a way to incorporate Russia’s security needs into Eurostan’s infrastructure, he also said Putin promised him there will be no invasion of Ukraine, which the Russians immediately denied.
Biden’s request for a talk with Putin at five to twelve is the result of these two meetings, and he better show something substantial to Putin. The West is beginning to understand Russia’s resolve (saw the naval display encircling 404?), and there is a possibility they might offer a way out. Sanctions from hell will not cut it. NATO’s defense will make the Russians laugh so hard they will hear it across the Atlantic.
Is Biden going to raise Minsk II, which the Ukrainians already declared null and void? That is only part of the Russian demands. Curious minds want to know what is Biden going to offer Putin, Ze’s head on a platter?
Munich Security Meeting 2022 18-20 February

Nordstream 2 inaugurated (Russia End ) Putin & Biden cut ribbon.
I luv a happy ending, getting all emotional.
Lone Wolf, Instead of offering something to Putin tomorrow, Biden may threaten him and say “unless you do exactly what we want right now, we’re going to do a false flag in Ukraine”. Or he may say “We’re about to do a false flag in Ukraine and when we do, if you don’t respond how we want you to, we’re going ignite World War 3
(or some other crazy shit). The people who control Biden are criminally insane!
“,,,Russia Blasts White House’s Fresh Friday Ukraine Panic Porn As “Distraction & Disinformation”
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova slammed reports Friday about Russia’s “imminent invasion” of Ukraine as a “mass disinformation campaign” against Russia.
“The White House hysteria is more revealing than ever. The Anglo-Saxons need a war. At any cost. Provocations, disinformation, and threats are favorite methods of solving their own problems,” she wrote in a post on her Telegram channel. “Road roller of the American military-political machine is ready to go through people’s lives. The whole world is watching how militarism, imperial ambitions denounce themselves. And a propaganda brigade chaired by Bloomberg serving all this.”
Zakharova said the position of Western officials “in conditions of a mass disinformation campaign against Russia” is worth a separate mention — avoiding giving a proper assessment of what is happening, the authorities validate their involvement in “fakes.”
“We can talk about the collusion of the authorities of Western countries and the media in order to escalate artificial tension around Ukraine by the massive and coordinated publication of false information in geopolitical interests, in particular, to distract attention from their own aggressive actions,” she wrote…”
have a save trip and wish you safe return. Biden is calling Putin tomorrow but we don’t know what is going to be discussed ! One thing for sure, US don’t want to confront Russia at war but they may looking for a secret deal to negotiate Russia for little political objectives such as I am allowing to have NS2, as well promising you by not putting missiles or other lethal weapons in eastern Europe or allow me to build small bases in eastern Europe in order to intimate them that Russia is coming to conquer all eastern blocs . So US want to control those newly joined NATO member particularly eastern European countries to monitor them by not to be influenced by China belt and road initiative “BRI” because those countries are very volatile and desperately need for quick projects & developments which western can’t offer now but China can deliver immediately.
This is all you need to use as a sample of what these western vermin are trying to do now.
Thanks very much for your thoughts and the links. Now put this all out of your mind. The very best thing you can do for yourself in this situation is to go to your church, listen to the singing and prayers, take a good look at the icons, savor the incense and let God work and speak in the silence. Take your time. We can take care of ourselves until whenever you can return.

Ukraine War: On The Ground In Donetsk. Get The Real Story!
27 years on the railways and Kiev now send her bombs instead of her pension. How twisted!
«Сейчас у меня двадцать девять выпускников, и мы направляемся на запад. Ура!»
Андрей говорит, что у него действительно плохое предчувствие… У меня тоже очень плохое предчувствие… какой позор.
Где люди, которые выступают против НАТО в социальных сетях?
Действительно ли они сейчас заботятся только о spotify и новых айфонах?
Действительно ли общество свелось к авторитарной пропаганде для всего Запада?
“Now I have twenty-nine graduates and we are heading west. Hooray!” Andrei says he has a really bad feeling… I also have a very bad feeling… what a shame. Where are the people who oppose NATO on social media? Do they really only care about spotify and new iPhones right now? Has society really been reduced to authoritarian propaganda for the entire West?
The United States sent four missile destroyers to the Russian borders.
Tonight it became known about the emergency dispatch to the Russian borders of four American missile destroyers at once, each of which is armed with 90 Tomahawk cruise missiles. According to the Avia.pro news agency, the missile destroyers USS The Sullivans, USS Gonzalez, USS Donald Cook and USS Mitscher have now advanced towards the Russian borders.
According to preliminary data, all four American missile destroyers are heading for the Mediterranean Sea. Moreover, according to unofficial information, part of the missile ships will subsequently be deployed in the Adriatic Sea, and part – at the entrance to the Black Sea. This indicates that the United States is seriously considering the possibility of launching missile strikes in the direction of Russia.
At the first sign these ships were about to launch missiles they would be sunk.
Almost forgot, Ukraine upped their travel advisory to Level 4: Do Not Travel (High Risk) [in all caps]
Famous Russian Cossack song updated for today:
Black raven, black raven, you flew over the whole earth
Tell me what you saw there over the Kalmius river:
Few there or quite a few unfulfilled bazurman,
They have bayonets and bullets to descend on a visit to us.
The enemy’s troops are many there on the Kalmius River
And already in the trunk that bullet that you assigned.
Guests will arrive at dawn, there will be a hot long battle,
You will lie killed under a burnt pine.
If this should happen – I die in the war,
Fly you, black raven, to my young wife,
Tell me: I ask for a divorce to marry another
for me to marry me to Donetsk land forever,
to marry me to Donetsk land forever…
And let us not forget the recent past:
Война в Донбассе / The War in Donbass
The US seems to be spooked.
What has spooked them?
Could it be that it realises that Europe will take an independent line and that this has to be thwarted by having a war in the next few days?
More likely Trump’s “2.0” halo rising up over the horizon in the mid-term’s early morning glow.
It could be about Scholtz’s upcoming visit to Moscow on Tuesday. War stops that meeting and kills NS2.
I often wonder why the Donbass seems to be regarded in some Russian circles as being something of an inconvenience. Unlike the Crimea the two republics have never been recognised and duly supported in their stand against the Ukie invasion. During the war period from 2014 to 2015 official Russian interests were tepid at best. The victories of 2014-15, carried out by the Don Bass militias involved covert Russian assistance and volunteers cross from the border into the two republics. The stunning victories in Ilovaisk and later Debaltsevo had the Ukies on the run, but at that point a ceasefire was sought. This, however, was not met with approbation in certain quarters. The wholesale retreat of the Ukie army paved the way for a rebel victory in a push to take Mariupol but ”there was an order not to occupy it… Not just an order to stop, but an order not just to occupying it under any circumstances.” (Strelkov 2014)
The terms of the ceasefire clearly did not please the insurgents. Along with provisions for a border buffer zone, and for the exchange of prisoners were others, reminiscent of the May Road-map stipulating that irregular military formations (the Donbass militias) were to be disbanded. The Kiev regime promised to decentralise power to the region, but there were no specific or detailed for local self-rule.
”The Russian side did not push the Ukrainian hard in the talks. The fundamental concern of the Putin administration, we may conclude, was not with ensuring regional rights for the DonBass population, but with winning guarantees that Ukraine would not obtain membership of NATO.” (The Donbass in 2014: Ultra-Right threats, Working Class Revolt, and Russian Policy Responses by Renfrey Clarke).
The situation was thus put on ice. This gave time to the Kiev regime to regroup and in the fullness of time prepare for another onslaught against the two republics. Along with the period of truce from 2015, there took place the selective assassinations of Motorola, Givi and Zakharchenko.
So did the Russian policy – a ceasefire – vis-a-vis the Don Bass prove successful? Time will tell this time around.
The vast majority of the post-Soviet Russian elite was and is pro-NATO, given Russia’s financial subservience to the supranational banking cartel. It was the cartel that ordered the Russian leadership to place pressure on the LPR/DPR in 2014–15, so as to prevent the ethnic Russians from exploiting the collapse of the Ukrainian forces. Logically, at that time, if Russia really wished to prevent NATO from becoming ensconced in Ukraine, the best strategy would have been to proffer full-fledged support for Donbas’ autonomy, along with backing an advance on Mariupol’ and Odessa, if not Kiev itself. So the Russians’ “explanation” that they hindered Strelkov to prevent Kiev from joining NATO seems highly disingenuous. Following the Minsk Agreements Kiev only moved further into NATO’s orbit. I would not be shocked if Russian and Ukrainian/NATO intelligence jointly agreed to assassinate those three commanders.
The financial cabal adheres to a cabalistic, Masonic notion that good and evil must be balanced, thereby preventing a decisive victory on either part. By no means was Russia to be granted an opportunity to decisively defeat NATO in Ukraine and other “borderlands.” That is why Russia declined to topple Saakashvili’s regime in Tbilisi in 2008. That is why Russia waited for years to ship S-300 AD systems to Iran and Syria. That is also why Russia opted to force the Donbas into a lopsided ceasefire with the defeated Ukrainian military in 2014–15. The problem is that Russia has refused to nationalise its banking facilities and imprison the Masonic financial agents.
The Masons have long infiltrated every aspect of Russian society and are able to sabotage pro-sovereign moves via bought-and-paid for oligarchs, politicians, military-intelligence officials, and so on, besides NGO-linked officers.
As far as Ukraine is concerned, Russia could have prevented the current situation in 2014–15, simply by:
*Preventing Yanukovych from being overthrown;
*Seizing all the ethnic-Russian areas in Ukraine;
*Supporting full autonomy for ethnic Russians
Russia had the means and opportunity to accomplish all these, but simply lacked the political willpower.
The same goes for Russian passivity in Armenia and Moldova during the recent colour-revolutions there.
The same goes for Russian appeasement of Turkey, despite the latter’s continued anti-Russian policies.
I am sorry, but Russia is as much “owned” by the Zionist bankers as the “decadent” West is, sadly.
I agree with your understanding fully. Russia is paralyzed by the parasites embedded deep in its institutions at highest levels. Russia cant break free.
the Anglo Saxons have shown many times their embarrassing child-like terror of Russians.
Evidence: the recent visit by UK’s Foreign Minister whose imagination created such fear that reason completely left her and she could only spout gibberish during her visit.
More evidence of Anglo Saxon fear: the hysterical imaginary invasion of Ukraine and the massed trembling and running away – like a small fearful child imagining monsters in the dark closet and hiding under the blankets.
What is it about Anglo Saxons that they are so fearful of Russians that they need to run away and hide if they so much as even imagine one?
Unfortunately, I suspect that Russia and her allies may lose the upcoming “informational war” following the inevitable false-flag operation in Donbas. The problem is that the LPR/DPR are currently requesting military and logistical assistance that should have been granted well in advance. Aside from the usual exercises there are no indications that Russia is preparing to deal decisively with NATO and Co. in Kiev. Instead of exposing and preempting the false flag Russia is resigned to its irrevocable occurrence. This fatalistic approach is wrong and only increases the likelihood of defeat. Currently the U.S. and Co. are about to stage military exercises in which Ukrainian proxies donning “Russian” outfits, equipment, etc. fabricate a “Russian” military invasion, thereby proving an excuse for a coup vs. Zelensky that is blamed on Russia and triggers an invasion of Donbas, perhaps accompanied by false-flag WMD attacks on critical Ukrainian infrastructure.
This entire charade will eventually blow up, why? It must. Why else was it not resolved during the last 8 years? Neither side had any serious intentions to do so and here we are. Suddenly, out of the blue tensions are so high that they could throw the global economy, which is already teetering on the edge into the abyss. Why is Russia suddenly concerned Ukraine could join NATO? What’s different from say 1-2 years ago? Why is the west suddenly again pretending it cared about Ukraine’s alleged freedoms, after nearly forgetting about the country for several years?
The timing with the European energy crisis and global energy prices soaring is impeccable I have to say. Just ask yourself who would stand to benefit from an invasion in Ukraine? Ordinary Russians? Ordinary western Europeans? I must say certainly neither, the war machinery behind either side will benefit and the powers that be who control this machinery. Please don’t believe that this is about saving anyone other than the ones that are now putting up a show to justify the bloodletting.
There won’t be much of a false flag. Goeorgia attacked without any false flag and so will the Ukies. It won’t be necessary to put up any false flag given the fever pitch to which war hysteria has escalated in the west. They will commit some provocation that is small enough to be ignored by western media but large enough to warrant a response. This response and subsequent responses will be used to justify a cycle of rapid escalation. As The Saker writes, what they need is a quick and dirty outcome they can present as a success. They may also say that they needed to intervene if the Russian parliament approves of sending arms to the Donbass. Watch out for a Ukie attack right thereafter, perhaps already during the second half of next week. They might suddenly move a lot more heavily equipped forces to the frontline, wait for a Russian counter move, and use that as justification since Russia moving forces count as an invasion. According to Donbass sources, they have just moved a battery of S-300’s from the Odessa area to the Donbass. Donbass intelligence also says that the Ukies have brought up heavy rocket throwers to the front line. So that might be the tactics used to start the war.
They seem to be thinking that, with Russia trying to avoid any impression of having instigated the war, it will hold back long enough for them to be able to achieve local superiority for long enough to warrant the quick success they need.
The west is now playing a very dangerous game. It’s going to be a Hail Mary attack. If it all goes wrong, then the whole western edifice may collapse very rapidly, not to speak of everybody else if it all escalates into WWIII. They are putting themselves at the mercy of all sorts of conditions they cannot control. True desparation.
To elaborate a little bit more, they might attack, wait for some of their fighters being able to advance beyond the line of contact, and then use chemical weapons on them, blaming it on the Russians novichok style.
well …it seems that OSCE countries written to by Russia are not replying individually but relying on their masters for a unified collective response which Lavrov has said is not adequate….clearly these states are ready to submit leadership into trouble like lambs to slaughter and avoid their own responsibilities….UK will claim that they tried to avoid war but Russia ignored their pleas…..France Germany and Ukr still “blaming “Russia for failure to enact Minsk it is all Russian fault….. so the scenarios are being set up…..
one fantasy paper in UK said Biden says Wednesday is the date…Biden will call Putin to say stop the war ..alleges that ” 27S Pion atomic canons” -yup atomic canons they said-have moved nearer borders and are targeting Ukraine cities .. oh wow.
“At the very least, we know that the western media will NEVER admit that the Ukronazis or the Anglos attacked first. As for news from the LDNR, the western IT giants will suppress it.”
I am afraid that, if such a false flag attack is triggered and if its success is critical to the future of the Wester elites, they will proceed with blocking the websites you mention. That is, block information and communication among us. Is this too far-fetched/paranoid from me or do other commenters perceive the same?
“…the western media will NEVER admit …” Indeed. I happened to be listening to the BBC’s hourly news on the early afternoon Georgian time, on Thursday, 08-08-2008, and the BBC had a news reporter right there in South Ossetia with the Georgian army. He said the Georgian army started the war and didn’t quibble on details. His report was repeated for a few hours of the news cycle and then the BBC went silent on who started that war. I thought to myself that the lying bastards of the British BS Corporation would soon start saying the Ossetians or the Russians started it. Indeed, starting on the Saturday, the BBC began that lie, never mentioning that their own man had said otherwise. The entire Western Lügenpresse was repeating that lie. Russia demanded that the OSCE determine the truth, as mandated by the OSCE. Well, OSCE regulations gave them 3 whole years to find the simple fact, and the OSCE ran out the clock, finding that indeed the Georgians started the war. But the mere presence of the BBC reporter and many other Western reporters in Georgia, near or actually in the war zone, told the truth. Alll these “news” services knew a war was likely and that’s why they sent reporters in the first place. Of course, by the time the OSCE finally made its report, it was stale news, “not worth reporting”.
I should have added that if we see Lügenpresse “reporters” in Eastern Ukraine, we can take that as a sign of an imminent false flag. But their non-arrival could also be interpreted as prudence or cowardice, not ready to get caught by an artillery shell.
What the US/UK have in their sights is not really Russia at all but Europe, to keep its vassals subjugated. But this is kind of ‘monolithic’ suppression is simply outdated. The vision of multipolarity and equal players is part of the information revolution, part of the thinking process of our age. Not just a political idea by RF/China.
In addition Europe can hardly go on without energy from RF.
Even if US ‘wins’ this round by means of a false flag it will only be temporary.
Valentine’s day is on Monday, the 14th in the US. The US masses will be hungover and stupefied from their Super Bowl the night before.
If there is a false flag staged by US/NATO, then an atrocity may very well be staged on this day by Nazi extremists working in conjunction with Western mercenaries and then blamed on Russia. There would be no limits to the viciousness and cruelty of this staged attack.
This event will be dubbed the ‘St. Valentine’s Day Massacre’ (see Wikipedia) by the US/NATO propaganda machine and dutifully repeated by the presstitutes. This is a powerful meme to accompany the narrative.
Given the shrill, fever-pitch hysteria in the West, it appears that something may indeed “need” to happen soon. A direct US/NATO confrontation with Russia is off the table. A frontal assault by Ukraine against the breakaway regions will be suicide. A false flag in an effort to win the propaganda war may be all that is left to the sociopaths who rule the West.
So why not on Valentine’s Day? I’d bet they even think it’s clever.
My opinion: The Anglo-Saxon spy agencies have produced another colossal hoax. Remember that on Tuesday Chancellor Scholz will travel to Moscow with 20 journalists and meet with President Putin. They want to unnerve him. Even some German Atlanticists are wavering. Nord Stream II is existential for the Germans. Also the Beijing Olympics are in full swing. They can hit two birds with one stone. So sports fans should enjoy the Olympics and Andrei can travel home relaxed on Monday to wherever he lives in the belly of the beast.
Thank you Andrei, Be safe.
According to information obtained by DPR intelligence, two units of Ukrainian neo-Nazis from Right Sector, of 70-80 men each, have been sent to the front line on the stretch of front facing Donetsk (to the west and north), filling in units of the 54th and 56th brigades of the AFU (Armed Forces of Ukraine). All of these soldiers have combat experience and have been trained by British instructors.
Other assault groups of ideologically motivated neo-Nazis and nationalists are being formed and trained to fight in urban areas. Polish mercenaries have also arrived in the Ukrainian-controlled Donbass.
“The presence of two armed groups of up to 20 persons in mixed tactical uniforms was observed near the village of Popasnaya. During the reconnaissance, it was established that the specified persons speak Polish and have arrived to perform tasks in the area of responsibility of the 24th Mechanized Brigade. Their mission is to carry out, together with units of the Ukrainian special operations forces, one-off sabotage and terrorist actions aimed at disabling vital facilities and social infrastructure and intimidating the local population.
We believe that before the Ukrainian army’s offensive begins, the mercenaries will try to inflict the greatest damage on civilian infrastructure in order to force us to retaliate, which the Ukrainian side, justifying itself in the eyes of the international community, will try to use as a pretext for launching hostilities.
The Poles arrived in Ukraine under the guise of instructors sent to take part in a training mission for Ukrainian soldiers,” said DPR People’s Militia spokesman Eduard Basurin.
The DPR People’s Militia has also learned that the Ukrainian General Staff Commission that inspected the readiness of the AFU to conduct an offensive in the Donbass suddenly replaced the commander of the Vostok Battle Group, General Tarnavsky, with General Sodol, who was the commander of the AFU Marine Corps, and who is more ideologically loyal to the Kiev authorities.
The DPR People’s Militia also pointed out the cynical actions of the Polish government, which, when holding the OSCE chairmanship, declared that Poland would do everything necessary for peace and security in Europe.
A month later, Poland openly declares its intention to transfer ammunition, Grom portable anti-aircraft systems and drones to Ukraine, which, by the way, will equip not only the AFU, but also Ukrainian nationalist and neo-Nazi organisations.
These Polish statements do not contribute to peace and stability, but rather escalate the situation, pushing Ukraine to continue its warmongering towards the Donbass.
And while these preparations continue, the situation on the front line remains tense. On 6 February, a Ukrainian sniper from the 25th brigade of the AFU killed a DPR soldier near Verkhnetoretskoye.
The Polish nationalists and their Anglo-Saxon handlers, along with the Vatican and the Zionists, would rather set Europe ablaze than countenance a German-Russian rapprochement.
As the case of North Stream II illustrates, the Poles and their Ukrainian proxies, as in the days of Piłsudski/Petliura and Beck/Bandera, are willing to act as stooges on behalf of international finance in order to sever Germany from Russia, whether economically, politically, or spiritually.
Poland, like the Roman Church and “Israel,” fears a “Fourth Reich” that is united or on friendly terms with Orthodox Russia.
The current imbroglio illustrates why Churchill called the Poles Europe’s hyenas and Hitler deemed them “untermensch” (the supposedly “anti-Semitic” Polish leadership was/is actually pro-Zionist and as rabidly anti-German as it was/is anti-Russian).
Turkey backs the Polish-Ukrainian “Intermarium” project as well.
Galicia has always wished to join a Habsburg-fronted Polish conglomerate, whereas the historic lands of Prussia have often looked to Russia for defence vs. an Anglo-French-Austrian combine.
International finance once again seeks to harness the EU to its pro-Habsburg “Intermarium” and thereby encircle both Germany and Russia on multiple fronts.
Cheers. Is Galicia your name for Spain, as you call It? Kindest regards!!
I am referring to Carpathian Galicia, in Southeastern Europe.
Hmmm…strange…Zed is asking Biden to see proof of the immediate Russian invasion( mh17 USA satellite evidence anyone???)..share and share alike or just a bit incredulous exposing the game….repirtedly USA seems to be “relying ” on their interpretation of the invasion plans released by der Spiegel recently….wot -USA has nothing better?
Pray for us, Andrei.
remember to tell the Vietnamize, Iraqis, Cubans, North Koreans, Germans, Japanese and most of the rest of the planet that, ” Remember that they have no staying power so a quick and dirty outcome is all they need.”
Are Putin and XI with the tag along Iranians about to make the same strategic mistakes of Hitler, Stalin and Tojo. Underestimating the Anglo capacity for pain (we’ve sacrificed a million five without blinking) and the ability to inflict pain and destruction could be the end of us all.
Feb 12: US embassy in Kiev is torching documents/HDDs/SSDs before evacuation.
This is the week that shit starts.
I realized this morning while driving, that war cannot break out this weekend. It’s Superbowl Weekend!!! The coming “war” in Ukraine is a narrative war. Can’t have that narrative compete with the Superbowl narrative…
Busquei no Google as efemérides (acontecimentos) de 13 de fevereiro.
Com exceção da prisão de Mata Hari em 1917, o reconhecimento da Suíça como nação neutra pela Liga das Nações em 1920 e o bombardeamento de Dresden em 1945, nada mais relevante ocorreu nos registros.
13 de fevereiro é um número cabalístico, propício aos Professores de História vivos que encontrarem alunos também vivos para contar que dia a Terceira Guerra Mundial começou.
Mesmo assim, ainda confio nas noites sem Lua, a próxima em 2 de março para o começo dos eventos.
Sinto agonia, uma apreensão vinda do meu âmago, meu sexto-sentido dizendo que a merda vai agarrar e, não vai demorar muito para acontecer. :-/
I Googled the ephemeris (events) of February 13th.
With the exception of the arrest of Mata Hari in 1917, the recognition of Switzerland as a neutral nation by the league of Nations in 1920 and the bombing of Dresden in 1945, nothing more relevant occurred in the records.
February 13 is a Kabbalistic number, conducive to Living History teachers who find students also alive to tell what day the Third World War began.
Even so, I still rely on moonless nights, the next one on March 2 for the start of events.
I feel agony, a apprehension coming from my core, my sixth sense saying that shit will grab and, it won’t take long to happen. :-/
Um pouco de humor:
Submarino Nuclear dos EUA invadiu águas russas nas Curilas:
Isso, considero sério.
If there is a false flag, depends on what the false flag entails. If it is relatively minor, Russia should do nothing serious militarily. The US objective is to keep Germany and Europe on the US plantation by provoking the Russians into a military response that scares the crap out of them. Would also keep an eye on the Middle East and Syria. I’m sure the Russians are on top of things and will behave as grown-ups–that is, with restraint. It’s to their benefit to avoid conflict; time is on their side.
The most serious news arrived today regarding the risk of war (which obviously is not only between Russia and Ukraine) is a small piece of news that arrived almost unnoticed. This.
The Russian Defense Ministry announced that near the Kuril Islands (Russia) a Virginia class submarine tried to enter the Sea of Okhotsk and therefore into full Russian territorial waters. The statement from the Russian Defense Ministry continues that a Russian destroyer (Marshal Shaposhnikov) immediately went to the area and used “special tools” forcing the submarine to back out. It doesn’t take much to understand that for special instruments it means that they have thrown some torpedoes and some depth bombs at him.
You will say, but the Sea of Okhotsk and the Culiri Islands are located north of Japan, 8000 km away from Europe, so it is of little importance. Wrong.
The Sea of Okhotsk is one of two Russian sanctuaries (the other is in the White Sea) where Russian submarines armed with strategic nuclear missiles are stationed. You must know that these submarines do not go around everywhere. They are submarines so precious and important that they run in sea areas so safe and protected that no opponent can sneak in to sink them in the event of war because they must guarantee retaliation in the event of a nuclear war. In fact, there are submarines called Hunter-Killers that have the task of hunting down enemy strategic submarines armed with strategic nuclear warheads. As it happens, the American submarine attempting to sneak into the Sea of Okhotsk (or a Russian sanctuary) was a hunter-killer, such is the Virginia class of US submarines.
Do you know what that means? It means that the Americans – but also the Russians – are at least really afraid that something bad is going to happen. Otherwise they would never go looking for trouble in a shrine.

VCO and I were discussing the current mess and she told me a little conversation she and our good friend Starshi Matross had while I was in Hospital last year.
One of the heavy units of Black Sea Flot was to go through the ditch between Black Sea and the Med, heading for Syria for the first deployment. Turks denied the ship passage. Kapitan First Rank in Command called the ship to Action Quarters, the caps were popped off the main gun tubes, two missile tube doors opened, battle flags were raised (ships are not supposed to fly the national flag when transiting the ditch nor are weapons systems to be manned) and target acquisition systems activated.
Turks were given a two word radio transmission: “Stop us.”
Ship transited the entire length of the ditch with battle flags flying and crew at action quarters. Turks never tried that trick again.
Thanks for the video about the “zelonyye lyudishki,” a flashback in time at the light-speed sound of Kino. It feels like decades ago, even though this happened yesterday. We are about to witness yet another historical fit by Putin, and we have prime seats to watch from.
The story about the Russian ship going through the Bosphorus is similar to the USS Donald Cook event, in that there are no records of either, written or visual, other than anecdotical narratives. Not that I doubt them, however, stories like these inhabit a grey zone between truth and epics.
