The Very Special Operation

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog The special operation in Ukraine has brought the confrontation between Russia and Western countries, led by the United States, to a climax. Battles are going on not only in the vast spaces of the Ukraine, but also in the economic, political and cultural spheres. The style of the Anglo-Saxons has not changed for centuries. And so today they continue to dictate their terms to

Operation Z+: On Raising the Iron Curtain Which Hangs Over Europe

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog From Kaliningrad on the Baltic to Odessa on the Black Sea an iron curtain has descended across the continent. Behind that line lie all the capitals of Western, Central and Eastern Europe, all these famous cities and the populations around them lie in what I must call the American sphere, and all are subject, in one form or another, not only to American influence

The Future to the Back

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog ‘For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places’. Words recorded by Matthew in his Gospel, chapter 24, verse 7, April 33   ‘It is Russia that is now at the forefront of the clash of civilisations’. Boris Mezhuyev, Professor of Russian Philosophy at the VIII Russian Philosophical Congress in Moscow,

Quo Vadis, Mr Johnson?

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog ‘I…believe that…our children (will) some day (be) citizens of the same worldwide country under a flag which shall be a quartering of the Union Jack with the Stars and Stripes’. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, The Noble Bachelor, 1887 Alexander Johnson, or to give him his full name, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson, was born to wealthy British parents in New York in June 1964,

Civilisation and Anti-Civilisation

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Religion is the key of history – Lord Acton Civilisation The word ‘Civilisation’ comes from the Latin word ‘civitas’, or city, and so ‘civilised’ simply means to live in cities. This word ‘civitas’ gives us words like civilian, civic and civil. Civilisation means that people no longer live as nomadic hunter-gatherers, but are settled. Although therefore they have organised agriculture, they are not dependent

Will NATO Aggression Force Russia to Extend the Special Operation Beyond the Ukraine?

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog Introduction: The Three Aims The three aims of the Russian Federation’s Special Military Operation in the Ukraine were clearly announced by President Putin at the outset on 24 February. They were very specific, very limited and deliberately excluded the occupation of the whole of the Ukraine, let alone attacks on any territories outside it. Moreover, any suggestion of the use of nuclear weapons was

History is Being Written Before our Eyes

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog The Moving Finger writes and, having writ, Moves on: And neither Devotion, nor Wit Shall make it cancel a Half-Line of it, Nor Tears shall wash away a Word or Whit. Omar Khayyam Introduction: The Distant Past In 1945 the US and the UK betrayed and turned on their ally, the Soviet Union, which was far too victorious against Nazi Germany for their taste

After the NATO War is Over

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Make no mistake about it: The tragic war that is currently taking place on Ukrainian battlefields is not between the Russian Federation and the Ukraine, but between the Russian Federation and the US-controlled NATO. The latter, also called ‘the collective West’, promotes an aggressive ideology of organised violence, a politically- economically- and militarily-enforced doctrine euphemistically known as ‘Globalism’. This means hegemony by the Western

We Will Win

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog There are only two powers in the world…the sword and the spirit. In the long term the sword is always defeated by the spirit – Napoleon Bonaparte Introduction: You Are What You Believe Like the Saker, I have White Russian connections. I know what the generation of my grandparents, adults before the so-called 1917 ‘Revolution’, told me. Then I read a lot about it.

The Third Patriotic War

A St George’s Day Contribution by Batiushka for The Saker Blog Introduction: War I am not a technical-military man, but I have very strong military connections and a keen interest in military history, both Russian and Western, and also in geopolitics, having lectured on it. I lived in Soviet Russia in the 1970s, experienced its weaknesses, its strengths and also its hollowness, understanding that it would eventually fall, for even

Forward to the USSR and Operation Z+

By Batiushka for The Saker Blog On 28 April 2022 President Lukashenko of Belarus spoke of a possible coming together of various independent countries, former Soviet republics, to join the Russian Federation and Belarus in a ‘Union State’. ( Then, on 3 May President Putin and President Lukashenko discussed the construction of this Union State further. ( In 1991 the Soviet Union, the successor of the Russian Empire, suddenly collapsed

What Sort of Western People Fly a Ukrainian Flag?

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog I can make a ten-mile trip in any direction from here and see three or four Ukrainian flags flying, or drooping, according to the wind, in people’s gardens. In that time I may pass by a thousand houses. The percentage of Ukrainian flag-flyers is then very small, certainly much less than 1%. But why do they do it at all? It surely cannot be

What is the Collective West?

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Introduction Western State propaganda mouthpieces like the BBC or CNN, their journalists abundantly supplied and rewarded by their spy services, love to talk about ‘the international community’. They substituted this new phrase for the old one of ‘the free world’ in the 1990s. Of course, both phrases are nonsense. What did/do they actually mean? The Free World The 1740 Imperialist anthem ‘Rule, Britannia’ has

The Ukraine and the End of the History

by Batiushka for the Saker Blog Introduction: 1492-2022 The present conflict in the Ukraine is clearly not really about the Ukraine – that artificial collection of territories is only a tragic battlefield between the West and the Rest. The conflict is about the organised violence and extraordinary arrogance of the West, the US/UK/EU/NATO, against the rest of the world, specifically Russia, supported by China, India and indeed all other peoples.

What is ‘The Russian World’?

By Batiushka for the Saker Blog Whenever empires crash, the question arises as to what can be saved from them. Thus, after the Second World War, all Western European colonial empires crashed. For example, the French Empire crashed, notably in Indo-China, which led among other things to the US invasion of Vietnam and to the no less tragic Franco-Algerian War, but also left a mass of African ‘independent’ dependencies and

What Does Nazism Mean?

by Batiushka for the Saker Blog You must understand, the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians. They hated Russians. They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred, they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot be overstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time. The fact that most of the world is ignorant of and uncaring about this enormous
