Vladimir Putin Addresses Russian Security Council – October 26, 2022 – ENG Subtitles
The Essential Saker IV: Messianic Narcissism's Agony by a Thousand Cuts
The Essential Saker III: Chronicling The Tragedy, Farce And Collapse of the Empire in the Era of Mr MAGA
Just noticed this article from Top War:
“Media: The Kyiv regime has prepared a dummy of the Russian Iskander OTRK rocket stuffed with nuclear waste to detonate it in the Chernobyl zone
Information continues to come in that the Kyiv regime is preparing to arrange a provocation with radioactive contamination. We are talking about a “dirty bomb” that Kyiv is going to use in order to still try to draw NATO countries into a direct armed conflict.
If earlier it was reported that the Kyiv regime could stuff 152 mm caliber ammunition with nuclear waste and fire such ammunition using self-propelled howitzers, now it has been announced that Kyiv is ready to use a dummy missile of the Russian Iskander OTRK for nuclear provocation.
It is reported RIA News with reference to the source.
It is said that the dummy rocket can be blown up in the area of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where the radioactive background is already high. The goal is to show the wreckage of an allegedly Russian missile and state that Russia allegedly attacked the territory of Ukraine using a nuclear weapon. weapons.”
That would trigger Article 5
– Collective defence means that an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies.
– The principle of collective defence is enshrined in Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.
People speak of “triggering Art 5″…but in reality according to text Art 5 is not a simple matter. Members are obliged to do nothing but think about doing something… Germany, for example, might decide to send coffins and diapers to 404, and nothing else – and that would satisfy the treaty. Or simply deliberate and decide to do nothing. Talk of Art 5 as a sort of (suicide) gun that either fires of remains peaceful is a rhetorical device to make people believe Art 5 says something it does not. Dean Acheson says quite a bit about this matter, as he was a foundational actor in getting the treaty…withal, he says he took Art 5 as far as he could, but he wanted the suicide gun, and did not get it. That said, the buncha finks known as European Leaders, under the control of darkforce, will do as they are told…if they can. I don’t imagine Turkey will do anything under Art 5…well, maybe send a polite note on nice stationary. It’s perhaps interesting to remember the situation in Europe circa 1949…and who had atom bombs then, and who did not…as well as all the money… Times have changed…
My thanks to karlof1…with whom I used to chat @ MoA . he’s a really smart fella! Always glad when Mr K steps up!
If NATO could use a nuclear provocation against Russia, then it would’ve done so by now. NATO knows it can’t as NATO countries have no means to defend themselves from retaliation. This dirty bomb threat by ukrops is just butthurt talking, a bluff designed to scare Russia and prevent it from going forward since ukrops and NATO know they will lose.
Yea, if NATO have not done anything against Russia is because they can not without getting obliterated.
They only can talk and try to make scam to break international support to Russia. The dirty bomb and all that bullshit goes in that direction.
Don’t get overtrick by random talks of article 5.
What is going to do Germany against RussiA? To be erased from the Earth?
Article 5 is just meant to defence a conventional invasion, if will never be trigger to attack Russia itself.
Not for lack of wish fo destroy Russia but for fearing the consequences
Who gives a damn if Article 5 is what institutes a nuclear war with Russia or not; if this doesn’t do it the US will keep trying and find a way to legitimize a nuclear response. Nobody knows exactly how it will happen but anyone with common sense knows that is what they are itching for and eventually they will get it.
Carol, I think that the USA is orchestrating this whole dirty bomb thing, and if Ukraine sets off a dirty bomb it will be because the USA told Ukraine to do it not because Ukraine is trying to draw NATO into the war. Ukraine has no agency. (As one commentator said: Zelensky won’t even do a line of coke without consulting with the US first.)
On his Twitter he follows only one account, his spouse.
ukraine is not a NATO member, so article 5 doesn’t apply here. Also, before article 5 is even applied, a decision has to be made whether a collective response would even work, or make the situation worse. I think that is NATO article 21. Personally, I think either one of the following two things will happen:
1. Nothing (most likely)
2. Ukrops use a dirty bomb, but are going to be on their own. Yes, the west will huff and puff and scream
about how Russia launched a nuclear attack, and threaten some worldwide UN embargo on Russia, but no one will believe it, and ukraine will be finished off by Russia very quickly after that. Falsely accusing Russia here and having it stick will fail badly here.
As I said before: No one in the west will risk their existence for ukraine. It is all about fearmongering, optics, manipulation, and bluffing.
So now 30 US congressmen draft a letter to Biden to negotiate peace with Ukraine. These same ones voted for the $40 billion aid to Ukraine. Serves two purposes. Shows “we tried,” if something blows up and a bid for some sanity just before US midterms. All political posturing and optics.
Brain lapse correction. Peace with Russia.
The 30 did sign the petition , still online, with usual mumbo-jumbo, still online. The last paragraph is amazing.
Anyway the Biden tank rolled over them, and now they lie their Azov.
The Kyiv regime has prepared a dummy of the Russian Iskander OTRK rocket stuffed with nuclear waste to detonate it in the Chernobyl zone, where the radioactive background is already high.
The goal is to claim that Russia attacked the territory of Ukraine using a nuclear weapon.
That would trigger Article 5
First: Ukraine is not a NATO member, and cannot be a NATO member as long as it is in a state of war.
Thus NATO article 5 cannot be triggered by war affecting only Russia and Ukraine.
If a NATO nation becomes directly involved in the war, then the NATO nation becomes an aggressor.
NATO article 5 is only applicable for own defense, not for NATO war of aggression.
However, detonating a dirty nuclear bomb, affecting NATO nations with a deadly radiation plume is an aggression which could trigger article 5, if NATO is able to prove that Russia did it, and if NATO are willing to start WWIII.
Second: The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is already a dirty bomb, but it is incased in concrete, in order to keep to radiation from inside the plant to a minimum. But since the nuclear melt down of the plant in 1986, the area around the plant is still emitting low background radiation.
However, after the Russian SMO began, Ukraine has bombarded the Chernobyl NPP with artillery, in order to puncture the concrete casing of the plant, trying to raise the radiations level from the plant.
But Russia quickly moved in to secure the area, and stopped the Ukrainian bombardment of the plant.
So for now the radiation shield of the Chernobyl NPP is still intact.
Moreover, Ukraine has also bombarded the Zaporozhe NPP, and Russia once again moved in to emergency shut down the plant, and removed the nuclear fuel to safety.
So now Ukraine is bombarding the dam of the Dnipro Hydroelectric Power Plant (HPP), thus threatening to flood the downstream area of Zaporozhe city, the city of Nikopol, and the Zaporozhe NPP.
We saw back in 2011 what effect the flooding of the Fukushima NPP had in Japan.
At the moment the Dnipro Dame is used as the only escape route for civilians fleeing from Ukraine into the Russian annexed regions of former Eastern Ukraine.
All of the above is already documented to the UN, by Russia, so if a nuclear catastrophe happens in Ukraine, all Nations will know who did it.
Currently, Russia is doing all it can to protect the world from nuclear disaster, and thus it will be impossible for NATO to get directly involved in the war in Ukraine, without becoming the aggressor.
That is why NATO is left with conducting war by Proxy forces, clandestine Terror and insane war propaganda.
NATO is actually stuck and facing defeat in Ukraine just as it did in Afghanistan.
So what does NAZIs do when their military campaigns fail?
They call the Pope.
And ask him to mediate for peace, in order to ensure that NAZI war criminals are moved out of the war zone to safety against prosecution for war crimes, in the US, via a Vatican RAT line, but claimed in the media to be a humanitarian effort. Just like they did in the we hours of WWII.
The title for this video is incorrect. This is how the Kremlin website describes it:
“Meeting with heads of security agencies and special services of the CIS countries:
“Vladimir Putin met via videoconference with the participants of the meeting of the Council of Heads of Security Agencies and Special Services of the Commonwealth of Independent States.”
This was not Russia’s Security Council but a much wider audience, making Putin’s address of greater weight.
Confusion, 2 meetings, the CIS and today :
Putin to convene Russian Security Council meeting later today — Kremlin
Additionally, it must be noted this is the second all-encompassing meeting of this group in less than two weeks, the last meeting being 14 Oct and the previous 30 Sept. Furthermore, the content of Putin’s message must be read as being in addition to the message he gave yesterday during his meeting with the newly formed Coordinating Council under the Government to meet the needs of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, something that Saker readers ought to be made aware of.
What these meetings signify to me is the anticipated increase in hybrid war aggression against Russia, CIS, CSTO, and SCO nations by the Outlaw US Empire including the use of the Empire’s Terrorist Foreign Legion as Putin stated. In other words, The Empire’s Fall/Winter offensive is underway, and preparations must be made to parry the coming attacks.
Forgot to supply link to video transcript.
It is interesting to contrast the CIS, which includes many “Stans”, but not Turkey, with recent efforts by Turkey to convene many of these same countries to unify under a common Turkic alphabet.
From what I read, Russia and China are not too happy about the Turkish effort, which looks to them a bit like bloc building.
I see Turkish/Russian relations a little like the slippage point between tectonic plates. Good to keep an eye there as an indicator of larger movements.
Besides security there is also right now :
BRICS Scientific, Technological and Innovative Cooperation (Plenary Session)
Discussed (8 hours) also were a new financial credit system, and fusion power and energy (at 2:03:0)
All the terrorism, NATO sabotage, provocations, sanctions, are to prevent this, which is reality, Scientific and Technological Innovative Cooperation.
Sometimes reality gets lost in the fog of hybrid war.
Meeting with heads of CIS security and intelligence agencies
Source: President of Russia official website
Vladimir Putin held a meeting, via videoconference, with participants in the session of the Council of Heads of the CIS Security and Intelligence Agencies.
The President’s opening remarks at a meeting with the heads of CIS security and intelligence agencies
President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Bortnikov, colleagues,
I am happy to welcome you to Moscow for a regular meeting of the Council of Heads of the CIS Security and Intelligence Agencies.
First of all, I would like to say that over the past years the Council has become a highly popular venue for discussing a broad range of professional issues, coordinating strategic decisions on protecting our states and the Commonwealth of Independent States as a whole from internal and external threats.
Our joint efforts are especially important now. The potential for conflict remains very high both in the world as a whole and at the regional level. We see the rise of new risks and challenges to our collective security.
This is caused above all by a dramatic aggravation in global geopolitical confrontation. The world is changing and becoming multipolar before our very eyes. However, some members of the international community are doing everything in their power to preserve their faltering hegemony and to this end, they are using various political, military, economic, information and other methods and means, from destroying the legal framework of strategic stability to adopting unilateral sanctions against those who reject their policy.
They do not even stop short of openly subversive actions. I am referring to the explosions on the Nord Stream gas pipelines. This actually amounts to the destruction of the common European energy infrastructure. This is being done, although, to put it mildly, these methods are doing colossal damage to the European economy and are seriously impairing the quality of life for millions of people. And besides, they are keeping silent about who has done this and who stands to gain from it.
Some countries have long been using the tactics of blackmail, pressure and intimidation throughout the CIS space. In particular, attempts continue to be made to implement ‘colour revolution’ scenarios, methods involving nationalism and extremism are employed, and armed conflicts, which directly threaten the security of all CIS members, are being stoked.
We can see the goals of those who are doing this in Ukraine, which has been made an instrument of US foreign policy. The country has actually lost its sovereignty and is being directly governed by the United States, which is using it as a battering ram against Russia, Belarus, which is a member of our Union State, and the CSTO and the CIS in general.
At the same time, we can see the United States’ real attitude to its client states. Ukraine was almost immediately turned into a testing site for military biological experiments and is being flooded with weapons, including heavy weaponry, without any heed to the Kiev regime’s statements about its desire to obtain nuclear weapons. The Kiev authorities have declared this desire publicly, but everyone keeps silent. We also know about their plans to use a so-called “dirty bomb” as a provocation.
As for threats in the CIS space, I would like to say that the level of threat coming from ISIL, Al Qaeda and other terrorist organisations has not decreased. They are trying to infiltrate CIS countries and are creating undercover cells, while the concentration of terrorist groups in Afghanistan, especially on the borders of Central Asian states, certainly carries the potential risk of invasion in the region.
It is obvious that the CIS as a whole and its individual states have never faced such comprehensive threats before. It is therefore our common task to protect our nations from them as much as possible, to strengthen stability and peace in the CIS space and to continue to promote mutually beneficial integration processes, which have provided an example of truly partner relations over the past decades.
We must make use of all the forces and means available to us to fulfil these tasks. Of course, we must also make the fullest possible use of our experience and contacts, which, as we have seen more than once, are noticeably increasing the potential and efficiency of each of our agencies.
One of the priority tasks is to jointly counter any attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of the CIS countries. We know what this is. To resist it, we must more actively reveal and curb the work of foreign secret services, aimed at destabilising the situation in each individual CIS member-state.
It is also important to continue our coordinated systemic struggle against terrorism. Recently, there has been positive dynamics in this respect. Thus, terrorist crimes, including acts of terror have gone down in practically all CIS states.
It is necessary to continue developing counterterrorism cooperation. In particular, we must continue to exchange information on persons taking part in or suspected of terrorist and extremist activities. We must focus on revealing and blocking terrorist infiltration channels under the cover of migration flows, including the spread of foreign mercenaries with combat experience, which poses a serious threat to us.
The black market in arms operating in Ukraine is creating serious challenges. Cross-border criminal groups are actively involved in smuggling these arms to other regions. These are not just small arms. There is a persistent risk of criminals getting hold of more powerful weapons, including portable air defence systems and precision weapons.
Furthermore, the act of terror on the Crimean Bridge and sabotage attempts at the Kursk Nuclear Power Plant – after all, such attacks have already been carried out around it – and many other incidents show the need to take enhanced security measures at critical transport and energy facilities. These facilities and crowded places must be protected as reliably as possible in the first place.
Some tasks remain as urgent as before. This applies to countering cybercrime and drug trafficking, eliminating cross-border criminal groups and, of course, developing cooperation in protecting state frontiers.
I am confident that the current meeting will help us implement our common mission on enhancing the security of our countries and the CIS in general. It will certainly improve the joint activity of our secret services aimed at neutralising common threats.
Colleagues and friends,
I wish you success in your very important work that is complicated but very much in demand.
I am grateful for your attention.
Here is a message about the dirty bomb from Gonzalo Lira:
There is also this matter of using depleated uranium munitions which amount to being “dirty mini-bombs.” Depleated uranium munitions are often used in taking out armored vehilcles such as tanks while leaving radioactive material on the ground. Considering who has flagrantly used depleated uranium munitions in the recent past, and who is supporting the Ukraine with weapons, it would not surprise me if Ukraine Forces and mercenary units are already splattering these dirty mini-bombs all around the countryside. The matter deserves more investigation. If such proves to be true, “nukes” then are already being used.
– using depleated uranium munitions which amount to being “dirty mini-bombs.”
DU is extremely low on radiation, and used as armor on M1 Abrams.
However, when inhaling DU dust one is inhaling poison.
Yes, and it was dirty enough to cause birth defects in Iraq on a continuing basis, and probably far into the future. An unending heartbreak for the people of Iraq. It frightens me to think what the USA has coming back to it for all the evil and harm it has inflicted on the world.
The long term effect of DU was terrible. Here what happened after Agent Orange exposure:
– was an increase in the rate of birth defects of the children of military personnel as a result of Agent Orange.
Yesterday, 25th, over at the Military Summary Channel, Dima tried to have me believe that Russia’s whole frontline was collapsing, with endless possibilities of ‘what if’s’/bridgeheads for Ukraine, they were even pushing Wagner back in Artemivsk. I wondered if I was in some kind of dream, where everything I’d read/learned these past several weeks was wishful thinking, maybe the western press/troll’s vitriolic diarrhoea wasn’t all humbug.
What a difference 24 hrs makes, after 27 minutes of fantasy-horror yesterday, today’s short 15 minutes was a 180-degree turnaround of Dima’s hallucinations. Russia was shelling them like peas and capturing ground on the counter offence across every frontline.
Maybe his Ukrainian wife is proof checking his work.
Or may be his Ukrainian wife stands right there with a frying pan in hand in case he writes something differently.
Yes , Dina,s maps look cool, but too many ifs, they could, possibilities, etc. And his Ukrainian wife. Don’t ake him too seriously.
The maps he uses are open sourced, I’m sure he’s as perplexed as many with the back and forth, not so much the lack of, if such exists, progress, but what happens to the civilians, when the front line moves…… blood letting. Even crossing a make shift bridge to escape a potential flood has cost civilian lives. He’s no more emotional or invested than Gonzalo….human, not perfect.
Gonzalo is stuck in a war zone, Dima could very well end up in it also should Belarus find itself enmeshed in hostilities, Ukrainian wife or not.
The article 5 imitation would require a Nato nation being injured. As long as what ever happen in Ukraine stays in Ukraine Nato will not be injured.
I say stuff NATO & hit them hard IF they’re sending weapons to Ukraine. Realistically what can they do? If they escalate Russia can strike back – really hard. They cannot fight back openly & the uS cowards will not help. The only weapon they have is sanction & that’s all used up.
Some videos for today.

The goal is to show the wreckage of an allegedly Russian missile and state that Russia allegedly attacked the territory of Ukraine using a nuclear weapon.
This conclusion is similar to the official Russian line on the dirty bomb. The implication being it is a Psyop exercise — an extreme form of pysop, it has to be said — meant to isolate Russia by turning world opinion against it.
I don’t think it is meant to draw Nato into direct confrontation with Russia. The rants of the unhinged warmongering Stoltenberg and Euro Nato politicians notwithstanding, Nato will not be drawn into a direct, open confrontation with Russia for the simple reason that Nato is not in a position to fight Russia in Europe. It will lose a conventional war in Europe. Nato military and intelligence know it; the Russians know it. That is the main reason the member governments of Nato (a purely military organisation) resorted to sanctions rather than threats of military action should RF attack the Ukraine. Ever noticed that ever since Afghanistan, Nato has been quick to use military force on weaker countries but is hesitant when it comes to stronger ones? There won’t be a repeat of Yugoslavia or Kosovo.
Oops. This is meant to be a reply to Carol.
I’m not so sure:
US involvement in fighting in Ukraine fraught with disastrous consequences — Russian envoy
I think the US is just nutty enough to think it can nuke Russia and come out unscathed. Of course the euro lemmings will just go along with it because that’s what they do. None of them have any brains.

US accelerates fielding of upgraded B61-12 nuclear bomb in Europe — newspaper
Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder told Politico that the United States was not “going to discuss details of our nuclear arsenal”
You don’t really understand the concept of MAD, do you?
@Vlad, the real question is does the rulers of the collective west do, and if so do they care? Everything they do suggest otherwise.
All this kerfuffle would end tomorrow if only Russia would allow America to build several military bases in 3 or 4 regions within its 11-time zones. Of course, America would provide guarantees that the weapons/missiles they store at these bases would have a limited flight duration not exceeding 350km, similar to the agreement on weapon shipments they have with Ukraine.
I think Putin should be reasonable here, maybe throw in, say 10% of the annual net revenues from Russia’s oil and gas revenues as a sweetener, much like Cyrus the Great received in tribute from its satrapies under the Achaemenid Empire.
I’m not promising Putin that the above figures are final, may need a little rounding, tweaking here and there, but I’m willing to submit such a proposal in good faith to the Directors and Shareholders of the US Federal Reserve Bank at their next meeting.
Bottomline is? Never trust Americans and their stupid democracy
Wow what speech Putin made! I heard snippets of it on Telegram. https://t.me/intelslava/40161
RT about Thursday speech https://www.rt.com/russia/565472-russia-enemy-west-putin/
– “Russia, being an independent, original civilization, has never considered and does not consider itself an enemy of the West.”
– … he [Putin] sees the “aggressive” and “neo-colonial” liberal elite in charge of the West as a foe.
That is new
The CIS heads were in Moscow, right? So why was Putin addressing them by video instead of meeting with them in person?
