Do people seriously imagine Russia simply blundered into the Ukraine not knowing what the west would do?
You may be surprised to hear that the world is actually still spinning. All we have to deal with is the mighty Wurlitzer which is an old-style pipe organ for theaters, and also a propaganda instrument.
Allow me a moment to explain:
In 1967 the magazine Ramparts ran an exposé revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency had been secretly funding and managing a wide range of citizen front groups intended to counter communist influence around the world. In addition to embarrassing prominent individuals caught up, wittingly or unwittingly, in the secret superpower struggle for hearts and minds, the revelations of 1967 were one of the worst operational disasters in the history of American intelligence and presaged a series of public scandals from which the CIA’s reputation has arguably never recovered.
CIA official Frank Wisner called the operation his “mighty Wurlitzer,” on which he could play any propaganda tune. Hugh Wilford provides the first comprehensive account of the clandestine relationship between the CIA and its front organizations. Using an unprecedented wealth of sources, he traces the rise and fall of America’s Cold War front network from its origins in the 1940s to its Third World expansion during the 1950s and ultimate collapse in the 1960s.
Covering the intelligence officers who masterminded the CIA’s fronts as well as the involved citizen groups—émigrés, labor, intellectuals, artists, students, women, Catholics, African Americans, and journalists—Wilford provides a surprising analysis of Cold War society that contains valuable lessons for our own age of global conflict.
Now, the Mighty Wurlitzer, exposed during the cold war, has never ended. We see it in full swing now. Here are a few snippets, a few items from memory (it has to be from memory as most of the Russian sites are still down, or up or down, in a relentless cyber propaganda war and this cannot be meticulously linked to source). And you know what, the Ukraine inherited its own theater and mighty Wurlitzer, where they are designing and producing for the common man, theater productions for this current time. Excepting now, it is all done in studio with breathless journalists playing war and running around in front of green screens.
So, while the tinny and discordant theater music sometimes drowns out even our own ability to think (it is torture, you know!) let’s look at a few realities.
Sanctions. Big Big Headlines – Russia is sanctioned for this or that and for basically everything, even Vodka. The latest is SWIFT (but only for a few banks). Take a good look at the sanctions. It is paper production for the purpose of paper production. The German sanctions on Russian banks for example have fine print. (They all have). They’re sanctioning Russia from hell, but of course, this does not apply to gas or oil payments. Those will continue, says the fine print.
Sanctions on Russia are now the latest fashion accessory. The one that can play that Wurlitzer the loudest is the one who wins. So what happens if they don’t win? What happens if they are busy shooting themselves in the heart, and not even in the foot?. What happens if the fervor to punish Russia simply accelerates their own demise?
Russia is decoupling as fast as what the West is sanctioning. A headline that comes to mind is: “European Commission: The disconnection of a number of banks from SWIFT “will actually block Russian exports and imports”.
No Einstein, it will hasten de-dollarization.
This morning from Medvedev:
‘Final review’ of Russia’s relations with West now possible – former president
Western sanctions could be an “excellent reason for a final review” of Russia’s relations with the nations that have imposed the restrictions, the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council and former president, Dmitry Medvedev, said on Saturday.
Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, which was launched on February 24, has prompted outrage in the West and a new wave of harsh sanctions against Russia. In a lengthy post on the Russian social network VK, Medvedev called the restrictions “a myth, a figment, a figure of speech.”
“Sanctions could be an excellent reason for the final review of all relations with those states that have introduced them. Including interruption of the dialogue on strategic stability,” Medvedev wrote.
[sidebar] Take another look at that sentence – why now? It is because most of the western world do not have answers to Russia on strategic stability, so they decided to play that Wurlitzer pretty loud to attempt to hide their inability).
He added that in principle, it is possible “to renounce everything,” including the New START Treaty.
“Yes, and diplomatic relations, in principle, are not particularly needed. It’s time to close the embassies with barn locks. And to continue contacts by examining each other only through binoculars and weapons’ optical systems,” Medvedev said.
Commenting on the decision by the Council of Europe and Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to suspend Russia’s membership, the former president said that while this is a “flagrant injustice,” it could still be considered as a good reason “to finally slam the door and forget about these meaningless almshouses forever.” This development could also be used to “restore a number of important institutions for prevention of especially serious crimes in the country,” he said, such as the “death penalty for the most dangerous criminals, which, by the way, is being actively used in the United States and China.”
He has no assets abroad and to the UK sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote:
“Neither Putin, nor Lavrov have accounts neither in Britain nor anywhere abroad. Maybe the kingdom’s government got something frozen off rather than it froze something?”
We are in a new world.
A few more:
Russia has just suspended cooperation with NASA on the international space station .. including the launch team which will not be available to the US. Russia will work with China. Zap! Are there any US astronauts there at the moment? I don’t know, but Elon Musk will have to get them home.
Let’s take a look at few more of Mr Putin’s actions these last days.
Russia’s President Meeting (http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/67851) with Security Council permanent members
💬 Vladimir Putin: According to available information, and this is confirmed by objective monitoring – we are seeing this; Banderites and neo-Nazis are putting up heavy weapons, including MLRS, right in the central districts of large cities, including Kiev and Kharkov. They plan to force return fire by Russian strike systems vs residential quarters. They are acting in the same way terrorists act all over the world – using people as shields.
It is known for a fact that all this is being done on the recommendations of foreign consultants, primarily American advisors.
❗️ Once again, I am appealing to the military of the armed forces of Ukraine. Do not allow neo-Nazis and Banderites to use your children, wives and elders as a live shield. Take power into your own hands. It seems it will be easier for us to come to terms with you than with this gang of drug addicts & neo-Nazis that have settled in Kiev and that have taken the Ukrainian people.
President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation (https://is.gd/m8pf2L) with President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
The Presidents discussed developments related to the special military operation designed to protect peaceful civilians in Donbass as well as Ukraine’s demilitarisation and denazification.
☝️ Shavkat Mirziyoyev expressed understanding of Russia’s actions.
The Presidents also touched upon certain current issues on the bilateral agenda. They reaffirmed their shared intention to continue the development of the Russian-Uzbek strategic partnership with a focus on implementing specific trade, economic, and humanitarian projects.
President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation (https://is.gd/322XIF) with President of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping.
The President of Russia gave the President of China a detailed account of the reasons behind the recognition of the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic and the start of a special military operation to protect civilians from genocide and ensure the demilitarisation and denazification of the Ukrainian state. Vladimir Putin also noted that considering the signals received from Kiev he was ready to send a delegation to Minsk to hold talks with representatives of Ukraine.
☝️ Xi Jinping stressed that he respected the actions of the Russian leadership in the current crisis.
The two Leaders assessed the current international situation from a common perspective. They reaffirmed a mutual readiness to closely cooperate and support each other further at the UN and in other multilateral platforms.
Held at Kyrgyzstan’s initiative, the telephone conversation (https://is.gd/Ppnjou) between President Vladimir Putin and President of the Kyrgyz Republic Sadyr Japarov focused on the situation with the special military operation carried out by Russia in Ukraine.
☝️ Sadyr Japarov said that Kiev was responsible for derailing the Minsk agreements and expressed his support for Russia’s decisive actions to protect civilians in Donbass. Vladimir Putin thanked the President of Kyrgyzstan for his principled solidarity.
The two Presidents reaffirmed their mutual commitment to strengthening the strategic partnership and allied relations between Russia and Kyrgyzstan in all areas.
President Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation (https://is.gd/oACYDq) with Prime Minister of the Republic of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan.
The Parties continued their exchange of views on the practical aspects of the implementation of the agreements documented by the November 9, 2020, January 11 and November 26, 2021, tripartite statements by the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia on Nagorno-Karabakh, including efforts to ensure stability and security on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. Some items on the current bilateral agenda were also touched upon.
The Ukraine is dancing to the music of the Mighty Wurlitzer. Don’t you do that too! Turn the music off. Zone B is way behind Zone A in playing the organ, but way ahead in creating a life friendly to human people, for this planet.
Margarita Simonyan focused on the 5th and 6th columns with a devasting phrase:
“If you are now ashamed that you are Russian, do not worry, you are not Russian,” she wrote in her Telegram channel.
And in the event that you are worried about China, they just posted this from their Russian embassy. They truly understand that this time it is Russia, but for the throw of a set of dice, or a different tune on the Wurlitzer, it could have been China.
Oscar Wilde used to say “Truth is entirely and absolutely a matter of style”. Don’t know if I agree but I understand the motivation for saying it. Certainly perceived truth is, but everyone approaches a situation as it interacts with
our own sense of who our clan is and how it fits into the picture. Like they say about the Jewish way to look at it;
“But is it good for the Jews”. within that framework, history and perceived truth are just pawns in service of your clan. I can’t step outside of myself and look at complex things in the human condition. Truth is only is math, and even there, within logical systems big enough to contain arithmetic, some true things are not able to be proved.
To culture, good and bad are some cosmic conflict between righteousness and evil, while in nature, they are the basic biological binary of beneficial and detrimental. The 1/0 of sentience. This is because a culture has to function as one, as a a herd.
EU and US Agree To Expel Russia From SWIFT and Sanction the Russian Central Bank
However, Eddie Fishman of US Office of Economic Sanctions Policy and Implementation said:
“If the US and Europe decided to cut Russians banks off from SWIFT, they could still transact with US and European financial institutions. Such a move will just increase the use of Russia’s own System for Transfer of Financial Messages (SPFS).”
Iran and North Korea are already cut off from SWIFT, but that has not stopped China from buying millions of barrels of Iranian oil despite the sanctions. Russian Banks can instead use the Russian or Chinese payment systems and communicate internationally via email.
In other words, the sanctions are toothless.
This means that the SWIFT measure is empty threats used as war propaganda.
Regarding the supposed sanctioning of the Russian central bank.
The White House has stated that “having lost the support of the Russian Central Bank due to sanctions, the ruble will go into free fall.”
However, the Russian central Bank has for decades been building up a war chest to withstand the harshest sanctions. Russia has been steadily selling its Dollar holding for the past 4 years, while adding Gold to its wealth fund. Russia keeps 22% of its wealth fund in gold, which is held domestically and out of reach of western sanctions. The Russian central bank still holds 16.4% of its wealth fund in Dollars. The euro’s share is at 32.2%, while 13% are in yuan.
Once again empty threats by the US used as war propaganda.
The Biden administration has also announced a Transatlantic task force to “hunt down and freeze the assets” of Russian companies and oligarchs — including “yachts, mansions, and any other ill-gotten gains that we can find and freeze.”
However, back in 2018 Cyprus froze bank accounts held by wealthy Russian Citizens.
As a consequence, today very few Russians have assets in western Banks.
Once again empty threats by US and EU used as war propaganda.
The German government said in a statement Saturday that it has agreed to the supply of 400 German-made rocket propelled grenades to Ukraine via the Netherlands, along with 14 armored personnel carriers, as well as 1000 anti-tank weapons and 500 Stinger missiles. It will also supply 10,000 tonnes of fuel via Poland.
Taking into account that Germany via its weapons supply to Ukraine is now supporting war against Russia, and couple with a possible SWIFT expulsion of Russia, this could spark an overnight cutoff of Russian gas via NS1 to Germany in retaliation.
If so it would exert a crippling blow to the German and European economy.
PT. Russia delivers 49% of all gas to Germany, and 50% of all petrol products to the EU.

The more of these “sanctions” are applied, the healthier Russia will be in the long term. And why? For the exact same reason the USA is desperate to conquer Russia – its immense reserves of natural resources.
And the most vital resource of all: the Russian people, with their creativity, intelligence, hard work and persistence.
The truth is all important. We know we have been degraded as sentient beings when we equivocate about whether there is such a thing as truth.
A few gems from Hannah Arendt:
“Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.”
Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
“ Clichés, stock phrases, adherence to conventional, standardized codes of expression and conduct have the socially recognized function of protecting us against reality, that is, against the claim on our thinking attention that all events and facts make by virtue of their existence.”
– Hannah Arendt
A playground bully repeatedly ridicules/harasses a perceived weaker kid. When the latter finally strikes back physically, he’s the one punished because ‘He started it.” USA/NATO has bullied Russia for 30 years all along its borders–especially Ukraine since 2014–but now when Russia finally draws a serious line, its HER fault?
NATO is an external military threat to Russia. RT reported today that, since NATO won’t admit Ukraine, Zelensky has begged to be admitted to the EU, which poses a double internal threat to the more traditional Slavic nations (both Catholic and Orthodox) who join it–1) neoliberal globalist corporate capitalism: 2) post-modern libertine moral/social values. Indeed, the EU constantly demanding/forcing these newer members to “move West” culturally seems similar to the American North trying to impose ITS values on the erstwhile Southern Confederacy. EU may have over-reached and “bitten of more than it can chew/digest.”
The USA hangs Rainbow Flags on its embassies during Gay Pride Month only in countries it considers adversaries/enemies like Russia–not in ones it considers friends/allies like Saudi Arabia–so they merely want to insult the former; they’re not really consistently promoting the rights/equality/dignity of women, gays, or other minorities.
30 years? 75 years!
Every opportunity for cooperation and peace rejected.
Reference the Stalin Papers, 1952.
“Every opportunity for cooperation……”
As a function of “competition” there was never sustainable opportunities for co-operation – one of the reasons why some refer to “The Second World War” and some to “The Great Patriotic War”.
Participants both played tunes on their Wurlitzers since they were both coercive social relations with different audiences, ocassionally even attaining a state of grace which others perceived as “harmony”.
Some participants are in the process of transcending coercive social relations by co-operative social relations and no longer hold Wurlitzing fit for purpose, whilst those wishing to frustrate such transcendence have aquired second hand the Wurlitzer deem not to be fit for purpose, and are presently attempting to increase their stock of Wurlitzers in order to learn “harmony” with others.
As Mr. Putin recently remarked – No one “won” the Cold War since it never ended, and it was never cold.
‘What is truth?’ asked jesting Pilate, and did not stay for an answer.”
If you read the Gospel of Nicodemus you will find he did indeed stay for the answer
Pilate saith unto him: What is truth? Christ saith unto him: Truth is of heaven. Pilate saith: Is there not truth upon earth? Christ saith unto Pilate: Thou seest how that they which speak the truth are judged of them that have authority upon earth
Beautiful! Thank you.
You know the propaganda is extreme when even Tucker Carlson from Fox News is complaining about the demonisation of Putin.
Well that pretty much sums it up. Theater for the gullible. And by golly are people on average gullible!
Maria Zakharova may just win the prize.
“Neither Putin, nor Lavrov have accounts neither in Britain nor anywhere abroad. Maybe the kingdom’s government got something frozen off rather than it froze something?”
OMFG. Always keep a sense of humour even when things are changing.
When she retires from her current role she should take up comedy, her timing is spot on and she must have a wealth of material based on the stupidity of Zone A political talking heads
Yes! I adore her…
Sergey has some good ones, too. When I hear Putin, Maria and Sergey and then listen to our lamebrain politicians.. it’s like night and day…
It helps that they are about twice as intelligent to start with.
The big narrative being peddled is that Ze is a heroic figure – a true patriot politician who will fight to the death. It’s fiction of course, but the audience loves the story.
Many people have no functioning centers of reason, they simply have not developed the ability to think critically. The outward manifestation of mental degeneration (i.e. stupidity) in today’s western society foreshadows a very bad outcome for the world. If social values and beliefs are entirely synthetically derived by the corporate media, I can only imagine the atrocities to come.
People are not *taught* to think critically. Deliberately.
It’s outright forbidden to think critical now
Soon with the help of Elon the governments will be able to control your thinking….
Transhumans won’t think at all 🤔
It’s understandable people are not taught to think critically.
Its inexcusable that people are taught not to think critically.
In my country, slowly but sure, the population is switching off the MSM because they are realising that it is a never ending litany of lies.
The complete collapse of the Covid19 narrative may be seminal in accelerating that process. A terrible price will be paid by both the Government, its healthcare advisors and big pharma/the Gates axis when the chickens come home to roost.
A few cynics even believe that this war was deliberately timed to ensure that the rising public outrage over Covid could be crushed at source. There is no evidence to date to prove it but it is entirely consistent with the absolute corruption of the UK Deep State.
its more than that….with 390 billion thrown away over last two years ….what will now be left of the economy it will be fantasy.. .it is a time of the grand existentialist division….east says to west go live on your rubbish heap.
“The complete collapse of the Covid19 narrative…”
Closely followed by the complete collapse of the “global warming” aka “global cooling” aka “climate change” racket.
Seems to me all this talk of dumb is setting us up to miss a real threat. I do not know what is possible with video but it seems to me there is more at play than simple stupid people.
I believe there is some very real brain washing at work and it is more powerful than previous. It would be fun to run some experiments. Take heavily indoctrinated people and put them in isolation from all media, especially their “smart” phone and wifi and see if their wits return.
Maybe it’s too late.
I agree. Brainwashing. It’s real and very powerful. More and more people are waking up.
Not just a heroic figure…but women are now writing in to the UK MSM stating that they find Zelensky to be incredibly handsome and thus somehow more worthy and exciting as a public figure…
I guess standing up to the Russian Bear and then creating a media imagery of defeating the invader, has worked well as propaganda…so far… Some primitive instincts at play there…
I rather like “The USA Bombing List – Democracy World Tour!” All those oh so brave USAF crews bombing mainly civilians (and civilian infrastructure – such acts used to be classed as War Crimes before the USA got involved), from 2 miles up. over countries with little to nil air defence capability.
The fact that Australia (and the majority of Aussies) feverishly support the US position says a lot for a country known as “Dumbfuckistan” by others, obviously for pretty good reason.
Despite the media hype, there’s a lot of pro-Russia sentiment in the UK too – especially amongst those who have been on the receiving end of US “friendly fire” incidents. Boris Johnstone does not represent the opinions of everyone “over there”, and this applies to many, MANY servicemen and women.
“The fact that Australia (and the majority of Aussies)”
Not sure where you are, but where I am in Oz a lot
(maybe a majority) don’t support your theory of feverish
support for the US.
Looking at our current govt, I’ll go along with the rest
of your comment.
I second that.
NSW Health, Mate. Any thoughts, let alone comments, questioning the “accepted truth” are quickly stamped out. Very much a hive mind where “Official Policy” is concerned, and that certainly includes “US good, Russia / China Bad”
I gain some relief from knowing that former colleagues “way out west” are not so easily misled – which is why they abandoned NSW Health in the first case!
The few locals I speak with on a regular basis are justifiably concerned. Thoughts are turning towards “is this the start of something unstoppable”. I don’t think the West senior command is quite that stupid / naïve, and that WW3 isn’t on the cards (just yet), but like everyone else I don’t really know, and the lack of certainty is very unsettling.
It is worth reading Peter Hitchens in his Mail on Sunday column. Not everyone in the UK is fully dumbed down just yet – being told what to think failed to keep them in the EU.
What’s more amazing that he’s still actually allowed to work in the MSM. Perhaps he is the token rebel to prove they aren’t like those evil Russians?!
There’s no-one else in the paper worth reading, and even he doesn’t make it worth reading a bit like the late Robert Fisk and the independent.
Yes, but parse his words carefully because he still repeats stupid talking points about ”dying” Russia with an economy the size Italy.
The man may make fair points but when he gets fixated, he’s completely rigid in his thinking & writing.
Peter Hitchens ends up some of his articles on Russia with a comment that he was in Russia in the 1980s, thereby aiming to underpin his narrative that he knows what he is talking about. But that is self-deluding. His experiences of the USSR in the 1980s is not a qualifier for understanding the nature of Russia today, in particular to the fact that a whole generation of Russians grew up under totalitarianism as kids and have vowed never to allow this system to apply in Russia again. But Peter Hitchens mentions in one article “that he knows full well just how evil the leaders are in the Kremlin of today.”
I have to give Peter Hitchens the benefit of the doubt. I take the view that “the more you know, the more you realise just how much you dont know” and Peter Hitchens is, at least in some areas, willing to understand both sides of a topic….which most of his ‘professional journalist’ colleagues are simply not capable of.
The US for sure has this as well and much of my war knowledge came from Vets. We lived near a base for a Number of years and Many of the people I new were disgusted. In the pivot east they moved a lot of the Planes out west. Now the people on the Islands get windows dishes and other things broken on a regular basis. These people clearly understand they do not matter.
@ Chris Faure
“…The Ukraine is dancing to the music of the Mighty Wurlitzer…”
I thank you for your article, very illustrative.
I don’t believe is just Ukraine dancing at the rythm of the Mighty Wurlitzer, US/Eurostan are frenetically dancing at the same music, while foaming at the mouth spewing hate for Russia. Hate for Russia is their drug, and they can’t have enough of it. They will soon die of an overdose.
Excellent article for today’s events which featured the diplomacy aspect of the current project. I’m not affected by the music of the Wurlitzer (I really dislike organ music anyway), but it is certainly loud and ubiquitous in the ‘west’.
I especially liked Medvedev’s remarks. His demeanor almost made him look like a larger Putin with more hair. The gauntlet is thrown back, but, apparently, it contains an IED. The ‘west’ does not know whether to shit or go blind, as we used to say in Texas.
Very interesting video with some hypotheses about the real reasons for war:
Hypo 1: Zelinsky working for VVP…very strange he went to Munich( the US did not want him to go), made this
‘crazy’ statement (out from nowhere) about nukes..
which immediately became VVP main pretext for invasion…denazification being official one(which does not
mean that if possisilities of course RUS will also destroy some nazis).
This would explain also the very strange war we are watching, no big bombing, airstrikes , electricity/
mobile/internet cut off, nothing inside city centers only in suburbs…talking also about bioweapons labs
to eliminate (also in georgia), well not new.
How is it possible if it was really to liberate Donbass, tonight one hour ago, missile touched LPR gas complex?
Great reset is real, major war to destroy Russia (bojo tonight), cut all energy delivery, krach the markets and
push for green deal.
Also payback for Syria, from Tel Aviv tribe (very silent for the moment)
Iran jcpoa deal near, which will permit to replace Russia oil/gas quiet fast after some repair.
It would explain a lot of strange things, and why suddenly now after having wait for 8 years?
Connecting the dots, no conspiray, hypotheses
People are not *taught* to think critically. Deliberately.
“People are not *taught* to think critically” was just the beginning of the end for the West. People are increasingly taught to “think” in slogans and icons, word-pictures, sound-bites and flashing images that bypass rational filters. People are being dragged into a group-mind psychosis where 2+2 does NOT equal 4 and to dare to use such an example is already labelled a RACIST activity, since arithmetical argument disadvantages some intersectionalised minority… and before you can say “this can’t get any worse” let’s get rid of OBJECTIVITY, that also has to go. The war is being fought over YOU – your mind is the battlefield. Good luck attempting to reason with those sinking into Mass Psychosis-Hypnosis. A line needed to be drawn. Russia has drawn that line. Not by choice but by necessity.
People have never been taught to think critically. Critical thinking has always been a heresy preached by the damned. And just look where it got Socrates! People have always been taught using parables, catechisms, (actual) icons, morality plays, prayer books, and platitudes. Dancing around a fire while on some mind altering substance, whirling like a Dervish, or speaking in tongues in a Southern Baptist church serves the role of ‘flashing images.’ The two minute hate is just a controlled angry mob. It’s how we process information. Viscerally, not critically.
Critical thinking is hard, requiring self-reflection and self-doubt. The Wurlitzer requires none of that.
It looks like it’s gone full 1984 to me.
Let the populace get angry at a war they know nothing about.
I’m speechless, especially when I get sent a BBC article to prove that Putin’s government is authoritarian!
The BBC is in an existential crisis: just like politicians, maybe they think that some war propaganda will save their racist (just because they aren’t racists against blacks doesn’t mean they aren’t racist), corrupt, globalist hides??
…may god help Russia and her brave soldiers win the battle against the West-Supported Neonazis who have taken the good old Ukraine as hostage. As in the news we hear Chechen fighters have already arrived at the scene. They’re Ukronazi elimination specialists. Don’t understand why Russia isn’t showing some of the atrocities being committed by the Ukronazi gangs against the Ukrainian people and post them on Youtube, etc…while the West has been kept doing it without a pause since the beginning of the special operation – kicking out the Neonazis? A big chunk of people mostly in the west have been brainwashed enough by the Uncle Shmuel, especially in recent months, following the mysterious Bill Gates and friends-financed Pfizer/AstraZeneca vaccines injections, so that they simply cannot think like normal people do and are very much manipulated by the Western PSYOPs.
U.S. Army announces annihilation of a Chechen special forces unit
Global Times 2022-02-27 05:36
On 27th local time, the Ukrainian General Staff confirmed that Ukrainian troops have annihilated a Chechen special forces unit in the Gostomeli region near Kiev. The Ukrainian president’s office also confirmed the news. The Russian side has not yet responded.
That’s true. Also flying elephant Dumbo, Yeti and The Ghost of Kiev are real thing. :)))
Come on, this is their everyday dose of the bullshit as with Snake Island defenders or 3 dreadful babushkas story in order to keep steady income of cannon fodder for the Ze regime.
That is not only untrue, but two days out of date.
Brilliant as always, thanks bro…
No recent word from Zelensky? Since his change of mind about talks with Putin, someone has persuaded him to disappear?
He is busy with calling all those important organizations to ban these pesky Ruskies, like International Spitball Comittee.
Ok, jokes aside. Ukie delegation is supposedly comming to the Belarus for negotiations with Russians.
All this fuss about Ukraine while no one is highlighting the Israeli shortcomings in failing to intercept a Resistance drone that stayed 40 minutes in the usurped air space and travelled 70 km over Palestine defeating the Iron dome, the israeli helicopters and jet fighters and radars, to return to Lebanon safely after achieving successfully its mission. The israelis as a result are at a loss of what to do, and if they failed to intercept a lonely drone that carried no missile, how would they deal in an eventual war between them and the Resistance with the hundreds of drones that will be sent to bomb targets in occupied Palestine? How will they face this challenge when all their defenses had failed them?
Ukraine is occupying all the headlines trying to consecrate a new polarity between US and Russia and to prepare for a “world war” that will take place between pars that are not real enemies. This is putting NATO face to face with Eurasia; and this alignment reminds us WW2 where the parties in conflict were not opposites but were rather similar. The outcome of such a war and such a polarity will not bring justice, liberty or the human purpose and will not bring favorable changes . How is Putin different from Biden ? He is not. They both agree on Syria, Israel and Yemen. This means they are both on the same side, and their so called fight is not representative of the real struggle between the people and the predator world order like the Palestinian or the Yemeni struggle.
As for Eurasia, it is an enigmatic entity that hosts together Israel and Iran, and is meant to have Iran normalize indirectly with the usurping state. It is another attempt at creating a favorable environment for Israel. If Putin is enemy to the world powers as assumed by many why isn’t the world powers exposing him and revealing his present and past: how he ascended the rule illegally appointed by Yeltsin, how he stole millions of dollars in the exchange program meant to secure food supplies to the Russians: a theft that is fully documented and proven; and how, when he headed the FSB, his agents were caught red handed trying to set up a building in Ryazan by trapping its underground with explosives and how he is believed to be behind the apartment bombings in Moscow in 1999 that led to the war on Chechnya thanks to which Putin won the presidency of Russia by posing as a national hero. All this is totally occulted while it should have been revealed by the media if Putin was really the enemy that the western powers claim. On the contrary, all this rally around Ukraine is meant to Promote Putin and advance his Eurasian agenda at the expense of the Axis of the Resistance. ~Daniel Mabsout
“On the contrary, all this rally around Ukraine is meant to Promote Putin”
??? – If MSM is trying to promote Putin they are doing a lousy job!
Faisal said: ” How is Putin different from Biden? He is not. They both agree on Syria, Israel and Yemen.”
These kind of trolling comments are not really worth the time & energy to engage in a response – but, it is worth calling them out from time to time. When you say what I have quoted, you should speak with honesty & say what you really think – you hope Russia loses in this war. And then why are you here? Spewing nonsense?
Maybe it’s us who are wrong, the Azov ultra battalions and other Nazis groups misunderstood and Putin’s hatred of them misguided.
I know, I know, it’s crazy, however, what if the last 150 years of American genocide is God’s own chosen path? No nation who gave us McDonalds Freedom Fries and Dolly Parton implants can be all bad, can it?
Seriously though, Zelensky has made the worst judgement call in the history of mankind, hoodwinked by some smooth operators/talkers with dreams and promises of a red carpet Hollywood glitterati personal look at me life choice and not in the interests of the now Lesser Ukraina.
…it seems you are referring to a grand conspiracy theory set by the big powers, so that they can continue keeping the Middle East in check. Sorry but I think you’re over generalizing things here. The main issue is West’s increasing hyper bellicose stances on important issues such as the role of the US dollar, financial and trade organizations, the UN, Nuclear Treaties,…, the Olympic Committee, FIFA … the roles of women and man…etc. – generally how everything must run according to the West. Therefore, they want to call the shots on all aspects of global issues and rip a huge piece of the global wealth all to themselves (..if English is being used as the main language of communication among many people from different cultures then why not make Biden/BOJO become their leaders too?) China, Russia and many other countries have come to the conclusion that this system isn’t working at its current state, so they’re going to replace that. No other option is available. This supposed warming of relations between Iran and Israel is not going to ever happen and is a non-issue because Israel itself (of course not the Jewish people) is an Anglo-Zion creation designed to maintain the current Western grip on the global hegemony of the US dollar, through its function in the strategic Middle East.
“On the contrary, all this rally around Ukraine is meant to Promote Putin and advance his Eurasian agenda at the expense of the Axis of the Resistance.”
Imagine the idiocy of this comment – yes, it is posted by a troll, & it is not worth spending time with, definitely, so I won’t. Just to say this on this BS line I quoted – this person has the gall to mention the axis of resistance. Is this troll pretending to be a supporter of Hezbollah? Or Iran? Because if so, the troll should consult Hassan Nassrallah’s claim that it was Qasim Soleimani, martyred in the most cowardly of American drone attacks, that apparently persuaded V. Putin to prepare the Russian intervention in Syria. Russia saved Syria – in so doing, Russia saved the Axis of Resistance.
the USA is building a huge wall of hysteria to hide its impotence and fear.
It was same with Iran. They couldn’t scare off much weaker country than Russia with their western military, sanctions, bullying in the media, piracy and now they belive that they will change mind of the mostly self sustained nuclear power. Sorry. That won’t happen.
Wall of hysteria against the wall of iron will and thousands of guns to protect it.
And to add insult to injury. Iran has taken their most precious, one of the most expensive military drone in the world, Beast of Khandahar without any repercussions whatsoever. I still remember Obama’s begging on the following day, when the big score was announced in the iranian media. They were humiliated in front of the whole world.
There are many dances that can be danced to the mighty Wurlitzer.
Back in 1977 when I was stationed at the Heidelberg Police Station in suburban Melbourne, there was an overnight fire at the ‘One-Man’ Police Station at Fairfield. The following morning when I started work, I noticed that all the three ‘Filesmen’ were working flat out in their office with the door closed. What they were doing was collecting every file/warrant/summons that was giving them trouble and forwarding that file to the Fairfield Police Station, but backdating it a week or so. Ergo, every such file/warrant/summons must have been destroyed at that fire, and so no longer existed.
What is happening with the various NATO offices in Europe will be much the same. All outdated/obsolete/useless munitions willed by forwarded to the Ukraine. Whether they get there is irrelevant, as they will be written off and allow for replacement munition to be purchased from the US MIC.
Much the same as what occurred in the Falklands war of 1982, which was used by the US/UK as a testing exercise and the ridding of unwanted munitions. The most obvious outcome was the destruction of the ‘Sir Galahad’ whose aluminum superstructure was set on fire by an Exocet missile
Thank you for the wrap-up.
I too think that in any case, Russian administration foresaw what would happen and is prepared for it. Hubris still runs high in the EU, these guys need a good reality check.
Go Russia !
The Police Farce is in fact a little bureaucracy. So to is NATO, and bureaucrats nearly always think in similar logic.
CNN caught lying. They claim that journalist Bernie Gores died twice. Most recently he was killed in Ukraine by evil Ruskies. Before he was killed by Taliban soldiers.
They didn’t even bothered to change the picture.
I wonder where he will die for the third time.
4 more deaths and he’ll equal Bin Laden’s record.
I hope they punched his frequent die-ers card.
Just an amusing thought about the Simonyan quote> “If you are now ashamed that you are Russian, do not worry, you are not Russian,” … Lets see…let’s turn that ’round… “If you are now ashamed that you are not Russian, do not worry, you are.” Give that a thought… throughout zone A many millions of people are ashamed of “their” fascist rulers. Ashamed that they are not Russian. Privately some even say they “wish we had a President like Putin”…and I have heard praise like that many times from strangers in stores and shops.
FWIW growing up in the US and living there most of a long life (I remember Truman and the Korean “police action” war the the US proxy quisling fascists started)…I had many “Russian” pals…and knew some old white Russians of, well, dubious character…never once did I ever hear or see the slightest “russ-o-phobia”. That stuff is new, and being created…rather similarly to the relevant period in Germany, aheeemm.
The over the top shrill propaganda storm is a reflection, I think, of the fear taking over “our” ruling junta. Bush 41 was afraid…”If the people ever find out what we’ve done…” (look it up). How fearful “they” must now be! Imagine!
Simonyan knows the US from a time back when she was a girl and lived in the US with an American family…

Interesting History…CIA in Ukraine for 70 years…https://youtu.be/jRicZc-cZ0I
” For 70 years the CIA has been working to undermine and occupy Ukraine to bring down Russia using such things as paramilitaries, right wing Nazi groups, corrupt politicians and businessmen, coups, and warfare in the eastern Ukraine region of the Donbass.” (G2mil)
Well, we may assume that 70 years of subversion has had at least two effects…it did breed-up a nazi force of criminals, but it also created a response to that…and since “Comrade KGB Officer” VVP must have been briefed about that from day one in USSR…we see the response today…as police action denazification operation Z. It was probably on the “to do” list long ago.
For myself, I would like to know where the denazification campaign goes after it finishes with the nazis in Ukraine… It’s logical that the present affair is only the beginning. I note that most such work is indirect and non-violent. Most of the time.
Incidentally, the air route to kaliningrad oblast, said to be blocked, maybe, I expect, an interesting matter… I don’t expect Russia will pay attention to the illegal sanctions – they’ll fly anyway. We’ll see.
I’m very happy for VVP to pick up Stoltenberg, van der Leyen, Tony Blair, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci, myself…..
Use searchterm “The Nazis weren’t defeated… they went underground and now run CANADA and the WORLD, pushing eugenics and depopulation agendas aligned with Adolf Hitler”
You’ll find warm and happy family pictures…and connections.
How about Kazakstan?
Kazakhstan was successfully defended from yet another USA made Colour Revolution. Goons paid by USA got there appropriate lesson, which they will never forget.
The china posts are actually a series of tweets . Fully spelling out who the world should fear. Puts to bed the many msm articles that chinas traditional abstaining.vote was somehow a sign of displeasure. The attempt to wedge was laughable. And a great smackdown that has since not been reported by the same “journalists” .
Belittling western sanctions for the sake of belittling the west might not prove in the best interest of Russian government.
The more hellish those sanctions appear the more hysterical media will be contented with them.
It would allow the few needed weeks for Russia army to reach its military objectives and possibly pocket intetesting political gains to go unincumbered.
Attention world, the culture of the dollar is in danger!
What could be understood by ‘culture of the dollar’? For example, the western world as it looks at the moment – what are its characteristics?
– One of its characteristics is that good and evil or true and false are defined according to greenback exchange value, for example, the dollar man (ambassador) comes to the daily newspaper and says, your report contradicts our narrative, stop it, it could have consequences.
– the dollar women and dollar men pretend to bring democracy and human rights to other states, this generates green lubricant that has the property of flowing in vast quantities into the pockets of private individuals
– it pretends to support projects for the health of the population and in the end a concentration of – financial and economic – power has taken place
– the orientation of western legislation is: all power to the dollar
– the green shine protects criminality within the framework of statehood: the purpose of law, for example international law, is no longer to protect the people, but this statehood (a very fundamental split!)
– the dollar women and the dollar men are fundamentally propped up, I don’t mean by this the lineage, but a financial institution that is private but masquerades as state: The central financial institution of the world – the headquarters of the dollar clan – has state power, is in private hands, is called the Fed (Federal Reserve) and was founded on the eve of the First World War; after two world wars had been won, it was clear who was the benefactor of mankind and superpower: the dollar men
– the dollar women and dollar men may not realise much, but they realise that their existence depends on the green note
What kind of relationship do the dollar women and dollar men have to nature, that is, to that which they did not create themselves? Perhaps an aesthetic one or a contemptuous one – their very highest is something human, but something subjugated human. Culture of the dollar means not only dollar-based political power, but dollar-based media power, that is, it determines the perception of reality. And let’s be clear about this: ‘culture of the dollar’ does not simply mean culture of money, but a certain money that directs other money. One result of this is that democracy and human rights prevail wherever the dollar culture rules. What continuity of one’s own culture could dollar culture represent for Russia, China and Iran? What do you think of the expression ‘ruble-based world order’?
“Attention world, the culture of the dollar is in danger!”
Some strategists tend not to frame by nation states but by lateral networked social relations.
Hence to some strategists “The United States of America” is a network of coercive social relations which are sometimes known as a culture.
Within the “The United States of America” are interacting networks with differing focus to facilitate “The United States of America”, one component of which is predicated on fiat currencies and instruments such as SWIFT.
One of the component parts of the idea to sanction the Russian Federation by expelling it from SWIFT is to facilitate “The United States of America” in changed circumstances, as was the case in the early 1970’s when Bretton Woods conditions had become prejudicial to “The United States of America”, and why detente on the basis of spheres of influence could be/needed to be offered to “The Soviet Union” and the then current version of the People’s Republic of China.
However on the current iteration the decreasing margins of safety which were facilitated by two previous iterations – deregulation courtesy of Mr. Clinton and his associates within “The United States of America”, and global financial crisis of 2008 and subsequent quantitative easing by “The United States of America” – have further deteriorated significantly from the last iteration, and hence “The United States of America” is testing hypotheses by gradually seeking to implement in tranches the present iteration through various vectors, including but not limited to, wars by proxies in the hope some will conflate that with “The War In Ukraine.”,
an attempt of a linear iteration in a lateral world as before.
“What do you think of the expression ‘ruble-based world order’?”
World order, full spectrum dominance, and hegemony are projections of the opponents illusions.
These illusions are useful to continue rendering opponents useful fools – not only gaining a “force multiplier whilst also gaining their continued complicity in their own demise -, but emulation of their illusions would not facilitate their transcendence, and hence emulation is strategically self-defeating to some degree, and why the Russian Federation is “invading” Ukraine using the softer option informed by aspects of what is for afters.
Present contexts are moments in lateral trajectories to transcend coercive social relations by social relations based upon co-operation – the metamorphosis of co-operation by coercion into co-operation by mutual agreement and effort – a component of why some of the interacting networks of coercive social relations named “The United States of America” including the Azov battalion, perceive themselves to be under existential threat, which facilitates present examples of Mass Psychogenic Illnesses.
Will Russia permit the West to send weapons into Ukraine?
Only for awhile, long enough to make lists…then “unfortunate military accident” (as Chinese say)…how do we know this?
Because VVP said: “I would now like to say something very important for those who may be tempted to interfere in these developments from the outside. No matter who tries to stand in our way or all the more so create threats for our country and our people, they must know that Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history. No matter how the events unfold, we are ready. All the necessary decisions in this regard have been taken. I hope that my words will be heard.”
It may be that the sponsors of the nazis imagine that they themselves are safe in their marble houses and banks. But “centers of command and control” were specifically mentioned by the Russians…and the center of control is…precisely where? QED
The conflict is existential and civilizational…essentially the sea people pirates v Eurasian Civilization . World War, if you like. Opening campaign is running now, but it does not end with the Ukraine.

Perhaps reading the last update of the nuclear doctrine of the Russian Federation in respect of “chemical weapons” and other occurences, may add illumination, if only temporarily?
Gonzalo Lira reports from Kiev about the state of the Russian Incursion….
“The following is a status report of what appears to be happening at this time (2022. 02. 27 at 12:00 noon Kiev time) in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
I am trying to be as realistic as possible. I mean no disrespect or animus to either the Ukrainian side or the Russian side. I am not in any sense questioning the bravery of the soldiers of any nation, nor do I mean to give any offense. I live permanently in Ukraine, I love the Ukrainian people, and my children are Ukrainian citizens. In what I am about to say, I am trying to give a realistic, sober assessment of the current state of play.
The Russians have entered the center of Kharkiv, I know this from eyewitness accounts of people that I know there. There is small arms fighting, but generally light resistance. In the south, Kherson has fallen and the Russian army seems to have captured Zaporozhia. It seems clear that Dnipro will be reached within 3 to 5 days. At this time, Kiev is being surrounded by Russian tanks. There is sporadic small arms fire outside the city, but no big battles.
The Russian strategy seems to be to encircle the cities, while destroying military installations. The vast majority of civilian infrastructure in the areas under attack have been untouched and are functioning normally. It also seems very clear that the Russians have used their older equipment and less experienced soldiers in this initial assault. Very few of the high-tech modern weaponry that the Russians possess are being used in this first push. This would lead one to believe that the Russians want to probe and exhaust Ukrainian defenses before bringing out top-tier men and materiel.
The Russians are being incredibly disciplined insofar as their information management is concerned. The only information coming out of the Russians comes directly from the Ministry of Defense or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Their information so far has been 100% accurate, which I think is a deliberate strategy. There has been a great deal of Ukrainian propaganda that turned out to be complete fantasy, but even after these stories have been proven to be false, people cling to them.
At the current pace of operations, the Russians will completely capture Ukraine within 7 to 14 days. They are winning, and winning decisively. Maps comparing the US invasion of Iraq in 2003 to this current mechanized invasion show that the Russians are outpacing the Americans by a substantial margin. And as I said, they are using their second-tier men and weapons, and they did not use air power to soften Ukraine for several weeks, as the Americans did in 2003. Any claims that the Ukrainians are winning or holding back the Russians is complete fantasy.
This is the current state of play as I perceive it at this time.
Is it wise to speak the truth Gonzalo, what about your personal security concerns, being where you are?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mbgjjEnbKc (gonzalo lira interview with Mercouris…sitrep
(RT does not load now, but RT DE does…so we’ll read RT in German)
Thanks for the report Gonzalo Lira,
…it is sad to see those brave Ukrainian soldiers (not the Neonatzis), fight the wrong party. hopefully they will switch in time and fight alongside Russia…don’t understand how could anybody except thieves or crooks could believe in a better future with an Uncle Shmuel in serious moral and physical decline…
I am not worried about heavy weapons or airplanes. This war will be decided with handheld antitank weapons and antiair missiles. With added NATO communications and intel. That is why NATO is rushing Stingers and Javelins to Ukraine. It is an escalation that is meant to increase civilian casualties, or at least doesn’t mind. The west intends to fight to the last Ukrainian. They want street battles. Is Russia aware? How do you counter such a strategy?
Same as in Syria. They will be careful will close air combat and they will relay on guided bombs and rockets, which can be delivered by aircrafts or drones out of the range of stingers. And NATO needs trained soldiers to operate them. Some civilians, just carrying it around, won’t help them that much.
There is nothing new for Russians.
And Russian tanks in Syria aren’t easy target for western anti-tank weapons.
I’m confident Russia will have supply routes covered in a tight cauldron of military-technical.
“They want street battles. Is Russia aware? How do you counter such a strategy?”
A1. You review your notes in the Syria & Kazakhstan files
A2. You review intel on which foreign mercs USUK & allies sent in the prior months
A3. You cross tabulate with foolish social media uploads of these merc targets, to confirm numbers, latest appearance and biometrics, drug preferences and effects, geolocation and movement patterns
B1. You surround the dug-in urban guerrillas & local collaborators, starving them of resupply of arms, fuel, comms, medical and other logistics
B2. At same time you degrade as much of hardened enemy military installations w/o killing many hostage civilians
C1. You announce and then open corridors for civilians and those wishing to surrender to evacuate
C2. You recruit some of the many locals who resent being held hostage to snitch on the mercs
D1. You drop bunker buster bombs on DUMBs and other Lafarge tunnels to flush out the rats
D2. You send in Chechens to knock on each door and each window to clear out each structure of remaining rats
D3. You end the war of attrition by busing the survivors to a mutually agreeable destination
At this point it is merely a function of time, and following the correct recipe book to cook a lobster. Even the Chechens don’t need to send their best men for these mop-up operations. The only limitation is the will of the politicians..
The expectation that some sensible Ukrainian perhaps military leader will rise up against neonazis is impossible; they are in prison. Fine, jail the Azov types… but must release the imprisoned opposition non-russophobe leaders.
The west will not give Russia anything without a fight. But it will give it to them eventually. The biggest error that they made was assuming that Russia is too weak to fight. They believe their own lies, like a drug dealer who gets hooked on their own supply.

Can anyone comment on wild stories about euro rodent arms shipments to banderistan, hopefully the military is keeping an eye on where this equipment is going to be stored
Anyone have info on what happened to those American mercenaries? Thanks.
Just a wildazz guess… They might find their way home, or maybe not…it depends. In 2014 they were exfiltrated…this time?
As illegal combatants and political problems there were no Americans…understand? Like Uncle Joe said, “no man, no problem”
Russian-language phrase Смерть шпио́нам (Smert’ shpiónam, “Death to spies”). Originally focused on combating German spies infiltrating the Soviet military, the organization quickly expanded its mandate: to find and eliminate any subversive elements—hence Stalin’s inclusive name for it.
Apparently the Ukie Nazis have agreed talks in Belarus.Of course dialogue is good but they left it to the last minute.Its a delaying tactic by the Nazi rodents.Last minute stuff in an attempt to delay the Russian advance and portray this as “heroic defending” and get more weapons plus support.Time heps them.Russia,of course, will not nor should not trust any word of the snivelling little rats that throw civilians in the line of fire
As I’ve been saying for many moons, if it was Eurostan holding all the energy, then a lot of Russians would be dying of the cold. Relations with the West can never be the same again, and so a pivot East makes sense. Also South America & Africa, all crying out for Development with open arms. With the exception of several euro countries maintain business relations/commitments but screw every other US puppet state.
I give US/UK/EU 5 years before they come with the begging bowl as their already broken economies tank.
Very succinct article on Western propaganda on this issue.
I wanted your readers to sample this from the revisionist historian Michael Hoffman, a dissident American:
“Near total amnesia about NATO’s horrific war crimes and the depraved American and European malefactors who perpetrate them has been induced by the corporate media. The Russians have not forgotten, however.
The historical illiteracy of Americans is cringe-inducing. On Fox News on the evening of February 23 the host of the program stated that Russia’s entry into Ukraine was tantamount to Canada invading the American Midwest. Madame, the midwestern United States was never part of Canada, but the Viking Rus did found the Russian nation more than 1,000 years ago, in Kiev. Ukrainians and Russians have mutual interests and kinship across centuries. An alien wedge has been driven between these kindred peoples by an Anglo-American/European Babylon fronted by Brussels and NATO, and fueled by CIA and MI6 misinformation, infiltration and subversion.
At present Ukraine is a CIA/Biden family-ruled satrapy where the pro-Russian, democratically elected government was overthrown in a CIA-instigated coup in 2014. Planning for the imminent placement of US missiles in Poland, 100 miles from Russia’s border, something the US almost went to war over, when the Soviets did it to us in Cuba, in 1962—has been underway for years.
Christians! — let us remember that in 2015 President Barack Obama was conspiring with Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate, Jabhat al-Nusra (“Nusra Front”), whose fighters were receiving medical treatment in the Israeli state before being returned to the battlefield — to conquer Syria and finish off the regime of Bashar al-Assad, which would have resulted in the certain massacre of the minority Christian and Alawaite population in Syria. At that point Putin intervened, dispatching the Russian air force and army to defend the Christians and Alawites and prevent their annihilation, thereby checkmating the diabolic scheme to further expel and diminish the Christian population of the Middle East, as George W. Bush managed to do in Iraq, and the Israelis have nearly accomplished in Palestine.”

Unable to google RT. I anyone else having same problem?
Zelensky invites foreigners to fight for Ukraine, looks like Ukraine will be filled with all the West’s mad dog terrorists from Libya to Syria and beyond.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced the creation of the International Legion of Territorial Defense of Ukraine, which will enlist foreigners who want to fight for the country against Russia.
On Sunday, Zelensky addressed the citizens of foreign countries, saying Russia’s offensive is not just an invasion of Ukraine, but the “beginning of a war against Europe.”
Therefore, he said that anyone who wants to join the fight and “stand side by side” with Ukrainians was welcome to do so.
“The leadership of Ukraine invites all foreigners who wish to join the resistance to the Russian occupiers and to protect world security to come to our state and to join the ranks of the Territorial Defense Forces. A separate unit of foreigners is being formed – the International Legion of Territorial Defense of Ukraine,” he said.
This headline appeared on Sputnik: German Chancellor Vows to Boost Defense Spending Amid Russia’s Military Operation in Ukraine.
Is it possible that this whole war is just a gigantic financial scam, much like the Covid-19 scam was, which is now being conducted by the governments of the world acting in unison for the express purpose of maximizing their profits through the selling of weapons of war?
Or the US is attempting 1/ To maintain hegemony and Russia is in their way.After Russia its China
2/ Complete piracy by taking Russian resources.
3/They are anti-Russian racists
4/And yes every bullet fired makes one of their bloated billionaires even richer.
Dear Saker and friends,
RT in greece is down. How can find the page?
Is anyone else having trouble accessing RT website? It is flagging my access as suspicious and the captcha is not working.
Today the propaganda is closing air space to Russia and Turkey saying that they’re closing the Bosphorus Straight. NATO idiots saying they’ll join in and rescue their poodles.
Still, no consideration for consequences. Unless their goal is to stumble into a global war.
Is there a source for the claim about the Bosporus strait?
It may be a serious error to limit the focus to the Ukrainian campaign…and to consider that for Russia there is no difference between “NATO” and “nazi” and “the west”…(they recently repeated this @ RT “going underground”) and that CIA has been curating Gehlen’s Ukrainian nazis since they hired Gehlen. Ze is just nobody.
It may also be an error to imagine that Xi and VVP are not coordinated. the matter is an existential conflict between fascist sea-people pirate “civilization” and the classical civilizational Empires of Eurasia. The matter is not political, it’s civizational geopolitics and to establish, as VVP said a new global security structure…that can’t happen unless NATO/nazi/fascist are totally defeated and liquidated.
The NATO nazis design, it seems, to bog Russia down and then attack from outside…the disposition of NATO strongly implies that, as do the sanctions. Obviously NATO nazis expect to seize the Russian gas and oil and the rest – just as German nazis planned in ’41 – However VVP seems to have planned the Campaign to denazify Ukraine as a trap for the NATOnazi armies. Remember the Tar Baby story…
Obviously it’s a world war, and the Civilizational Classical Empires of Eurasia absolutely intend to prevail. The affair just now with second tier green troops and non-modern weapons and carriers is bait to appear weak when you are strong…When NATO comes in they’ll be in a cauldron, because modern and combat experienced Russian main forces are not committed but on extraspecial alert waiting for the meat filling of a giant piroshki. The Strategy and Grand Strategy is Sun Tsu 101…and entirely obscure and occult to the esteemed fine nazi gentlemen and genderfluid sodomites…for whom evil appears as good.
Yes, there is source, but I have not checked through to source.
Turkey views developments in Ukraine as a ‘war’

Thank you, Amarynth.
RT just added too.
I think there are more clarifications and it was a CNN discussion.
The details are in the article.
Today’s New York Times states that President Putin has placed Russia’s nuclear missiles on alert. Is this true? To me, it seems like an illogical move that would tempt the gods of nuclear war, and it seems uncharacteristic of the always measured Putin.
es sieht allerdings so aus, ja, sie sind in Alarmbereitschaft, kam bei RT und auch bei TASS:
https://www.rt.com/russia/550767-putin-nuclear-deterrent-forces-order/ Yes. It’s quite true. Rt loaded, that alert is part of the headline. It is not tempting the gods, and not illogical.
See my post above.
VVP and Xi have made it, the matter and their resolve quite plain. Read their recent speeches and orders.
It is reasonable to expect nuclear and chemical…since bio has been ongoing since at least 1951 (see Jeffery Kaye @ medium for the evidence) we may also expect more of that. According to L. Groves, the US atom bomb was “for Russia” (Alperowitz) and not for Japan or Germany … the bombs on Japan were effects tests #1 and #2, and intended to intimidate Stalin…it’s been a nuclear war since 1945.
see also DONBASS SITREP DAYZ+5 https://youtu.be/r7MQg5lFovI
(sorry, I know Saker does not particularly like the man…but it’s a report, and he’s there)
The closing of Strait is very grave, but quite aligns with the ideas I posted…global.
@ about 36:30 in video the matter of Russian intent arises…(Trembly) “one of my favorite russian experts and
advisors from moscow
i asked him directly
do you think that russia will intend to
war criminals for example like obama and
and jeffrey pyatt and victoria nuland
and even bill clinton and his answer was
very brief and quick he said absolutely ”
Yup, global war…and trials.
Das war super! Great update, interaction and perspective by 3 beautiful folks in Crimea and Donbass who put their lives on the line.
He notes 7/12 biolabs in Ukraine confirmed destroyed in first waves of strikes by thermobarics; the remainder 5/12 considered 90% likelihood destroyed. So as with other WMD sites such as Chernobyl, these BLS labs are being neutralized. It may also explain part of the media hysteria and lack of significant FFs..
Also note Tremblay’s question at 37:55!! Salud!
Ukraine is Phase 1. Hypersonic hunting of Mineshafts is the last phase if they do not answer the Summons.
As Saker noted years ago, this is a fight to the finish, and we are now in the kinetic finishing phase ..

If Russia decides to continue supplying America’s EU satellites with energy (or America with half a million barrels of oil a day), it should require payment IN ADVANCE, and IN GOLD.
