Notes by Amarynth
Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, is planning to discuss the potential withdrawal of the country from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), according to Pyotr Tolstoy, the vice speaker of the parliament.
Russia has just started the process to withdraw from Council of the Baltic Sea States.
Previously they canceled membership in the Council of Europe.
We are also waiting for a formal announcement that from now on, oil will also have to be paid for in Rubles.
These are major changes in our world configuration.
thought Russia was going to sue the hostiles for illegal sanctions under WTO rules? Not worth the bother??
Russia still going to sue for USA over seizures diplomatic properties?
Germany sending more stuff to the Ukraine..to what level until Pres Putin replies in his own manner?
Hey! All the hypersonic missiles and artillery shells landing on that obsolete, worthless military equipment Germany is trying to get rid of, are ALL marked ” FROM RUSSIA, with Love”!!!
let alone Poland …gave 232 T72 tanks
Poland is crying today that Russia destroys the Western weapons giving to Ukraine. https://cont.ws/@Topwar/2287433
Its against the Human Rights Convention, the International Rules Based Usury Order and a lot more.
if zelensky is on coke polish gov is on bath salts mixed with bat dung, for my own sanity i just skip on all their statements, “Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad”
Przydacz should STFU and be happy Russia didn’t destory them while they were still in Poland.
That Dingbat should be happy; the US/UK/NATO’s passing along old, obsolete military SH*T, which , upon destruction, will soon be replaced by modern, over-engineered, highly complex military SH*T that doesn’t work either.
But it sure looks pretty on those sale videos, when operated by folks with advanced engineering degrees;
who are just like the servicemen in the field of combat, right???!
Amazing, isn’t it, just how privileged they think they are? They send in stuff to kill people and the other side doesn’t cooperate.
All tanks without Reactive Armour has proven during the war in Syria, to be tin-cans waiting to be opened by Anti Tank Guided missiles (ATGM)
That includes the USSR Built T-72 constructed in 1969, now delivered from Poland to Ukraine
That also includes the German Leopard 2 constructed in 1979, and now delivered from Germany to Ukraine.
Here is a video of a Turkish Leopard 2A4 being opened by a Kurdish female ATGM fighter.
Russian Tanks has been equipped with Reactive amour systems, since the beginning of the war in Syria.
Germany is now working on Building a Leopard 2A7
thanks for info
Turkish Leopard 2A4 was taken down by Konkurs ATGM. Is that an older ATGM than the Russian 9M133 Kornet? I think the Kornet can open pretty much anything including M1A, Merkava and other.
Actually, the newer models of T-72, like T-72B3 do have a reactive armour. Of cource, they’re used by Russia and her allies exclusively, but still…
Russia gets revenge in higher oil prices and coming IMO rubles for grain.
Better to stay in thr WTO sue the Zio empire under their own rules etc but getting out of the WHO yes good idea.
Russia’s only mistake was to underestimate how good the Mos_ad and their Nazi allies have been in exterminating all democratic opposition in Ukraine, making it a Ju_deo Nazi dictatorship.
As a result, Soros is able to harvest large numbers of Ukrainian women and children for his global sex slave and organ harvesting businesses. As you never mention this and therefore don’t care you are any enemy of the Ukraine people. Sores has been doing this since 2014 and it has really increased since Ukrainian refuges started to flee to Poland and Romania.
The Z_io empire wants to send as many poorly trained Ukrainian men to the front as possible so they all die making it much easier for Soros to harvest the women and children of Ukraine for his global Z_io sex slave and organ harvesting businesses which are very profitable. A truly patriotic Ukrainian would never send poorly trained solders to the front. It takes months not days or weeks to properly train solders.
In what court could Russia sue? Russian, yes but so what, UK yes but so what. Russia will get its money back by charging Europe more for gas, not by suing in any European court.
If Russia leaves the ‘world health organization’, that should Shut Up the critics who claim that Russia and V.V.Putin are a part of the ‘globalist’ (((new world order))).
Is there a health disaster unfolding in the west?
check the insurance companies and their numbers.
up to 40% more deaths i certain age groups, Not from the coofid “pandemi”.
Please can everyone stay on topic and read the site policy in regard to covid/vax comments. Any comment breaking the rules will go to trash. Mod.
Some writers push hard on this “Russia is in on it” idea meaning that Putin is collaborating with the Davos et all global takeover.
Personally, I find this idea ridiculous. Russia has been in strengthening mode for decades, and participating with the various groups of goons was simply a good idea because they could better see the plans and players.
As a scientist and research director with many decades of experience, I can tell you that WHO and various other health-oriented organizations ate far more political than scientific.
Russia dropping such organizations simply means that the playing along role is no longer productive. Facades are dropping on both sides.
– Some writers push hard on this “Russia is in on it”
The typical onliner is on this level: – Jews, who make only 0.2% of Ukraine’s total population, have total monopoly over the country’s government, media and finance.
” 0.2%” ?? Ukraine is homeland for the Jews!!!
And the same attitudes we find in US where it is claimed Jews are only “2%”.
… just a repeat of Wikipedia
Correct. Russia will talk to anybody and everybody about anything. In terms of foreign policy the door is always open and room to talk always given but they will not work with just anybody. Remember the parade of fools heading to Moscow before the SMO? the door is open, even to fools … and now Moscow writes them all off and goes its own way.
I wonder whether Russia/Putin was just “playing along” in the Virus case.
Russia is member of IMF, UN and received $18 billion allocated to the Virus probably with “conditions”. This could explain the double speak of Putin m.m. dragging the case out.
Remember there is still a 5’th Column in Russia too.
“Aug 2021, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) gave out US$650 billion in Special Drawing Rights (SDRs) as a form of COVID-related economic stimulus. [ 1] This money went to just about every country in the world. [ 2] The USA got about 17.43% of the money ($113.3 billion) and Russia got 2.7% of it ($17.55 billion). [ 3].”
I live in Mexico where Sputnik has been available together with the standards–Pfizer, J & J, etc. Several months back the health authorities said that Sputnik was the only one they were using with which there had been no negative side effects. This is hardly a long-term study, but I found it interesting seeing that Sputnik was made in a different way than the others.
Mexico was amazing during the pandemic: no restrictions to enter the country. No pcr’s , vaccine mandate etc just a health form that is now canceled.
Amazing, hearing they used Sputnik only… so great!
But I guess they used some more, also a Cuban vaccine was purchased and I guess used.
I also think the Cuban vaccine is good, Cubans are very good in research and vaccines, they also have that lung cancer vaccine that is as Ive heard extraordinary.
I’ve read lots of info online about vaccines and side effects.
None so far about Sputnik and given the fact is in so many countries and nothing so far, is very promising.
San Marino also used it and they did great: when Gibraltar (similar in no population) first used the mrna one, first infections and deaths were skyrocketing, when San marino did it with Sputnik, the hospitals emptied in weeks. And no reported side effects.
That being said, I am not prone in taking any vaccine for any disease, but if there is to take one, I would take one made in Russia, or in Cuba for example.
I for one apologize for our atrocities against your beautiful country. I pray someday you can get your territory back from the US gov.
I am so glad to hear Sputnik’s not a disaster. At least one friend was worried about Putin, because he was so pale back in February, but he had to have been under terrible stress contemplating this military action.
Removed. Mod. President Putin does appear to want and acts for the best of the Russian people. This is certainly not a characteristic of a “globalist”. It also appears that the Sputnik vaccine is a bit of a different “beast”. than your average people chomping vaccine.
Speaking of which if you have any sites that are tracking the Sputnik in Russia I’d love to see them. I’ve found decent proxy groups for Pfizer (Israel), AZ (Gibraltar), Sino (Seychelles). Moderna is in quite a few but no market dominance like other products.
I’d love to read up on the Sputnik as a lot of Russia has taken it.
Yes it will IF they then follow up by stopping all WHO related/ recommended “health security” processes in Russia, removing the Globalist WHO lackeys from key decision making posts, and replacing them with real scientists who have the actual health of the Russian people at heart.
Many of my own well researched and well considered doubts would be reduced greatly.
But that will be difficult to do when their so-called best ally with whom they “stand back-to-back” is the WHO for all intents and purposes, won’t it? China and the WHO are inseparable in terms of research, policy, and financing. So good luck with that. Maybe China will then “sanction Russia” too!
China is not so dumb…and will advance her science just “cooperating” with WHO etc…
Are you aware of the upcoming vote in the WHA, May 22-28, on the Biden Administration amendments to the WHO? These amendments effectively remove national sovereignty from all 194 members in re the declaration of a health emergency. No legislative, judicial, scientific, or other body of any nation will be allowed to make health decisions: all will be decided by Tedros and an executive committee. He will become as infallible as the pope. No one will be able to refuse the WHO’s orders and they will create an enforcement arm. Once a nation, for instance, Russia, has been targeted as being a public health risk, for any old reason and merely on unconfirmed suspicion, the health goons will come in and set up their rules- lockdown, distancing, confiscation of firearms, or whatever they see fit to impose upon the population. There will be penalties for non compliance.
America has already lined up enough votes for passage.
It sounds like unconventional warfare to me.
Do you think this might have anything to do with Russia ‘s desire to leave that body at this time?
This is just one (important) part of the push toward world government. The World Economic Forum (WEF) and the WHO are two of the leading Globalist front organizations for the City of London-Wall Street-Israel Cabal, forming the vanguard for our impending enslavement by the New Global Aristocracy headed by bankers-financiers.
Everything of significance contained in the Pandemic Treaty documents actually occurred from 2020 with the Covid fraud; now they intend to formalize all that and more in writing. This was possible because of the literal army of “Young Global Leaders” and “Young Global Influencers” who have been trained, groomed, and dispersed by the WEF to literally every country on the planet (including and especially the formerly sovereign western democracies, where the same now corrupted and controlled government processes were used to put them into power positions). These traitors hate the very idea of sovereignty, and of the nation state, are mostly youth of the New Global Aristocracy, and it is their mission and intent to set up the central bank techno tyranny on behalf of the Cabal. These are the same traitors who will cast the “votes” in favor of the fraudulent “pandemic treaty” as they pretend to represent the former democracies whose little remaining sovereignty they will be very happy to give away.
I see no hope, at least in the short term, to stop the processes now underway. The people are too divided, too ignorant, too scared, too angry, and too (fill in the blank) to stand up now and take back respective national sovereignty. I suppose we are not capable of sovereignty, sadly.
If the people of just a few of the big former sovereigns could do it, could rise up, things could be stalled or even turned around. Unfortunately too many controls, many in violation of the laws and /or constitutions of the nations involved, have already been fraudulently put into place. The tyrants will use financial warfare, police, military, and especially the different factions they have created among us, the people, to put down any kind of movement to remove their front men and women and stop them. Look to Australia, Canada, or the US (Jan 6) for examples.
But no. Not simply a direct response to any possible-not confirmed-decision by Russia to exit the WHO. Recall that Trump stopped funding to the WHO (the US is of course the leading financial contributor followed by Bill Gates I believe). It doesn’t mean much in the short term.
Russia is heavily engaged with the WHO and has long been pandering to have their “vaccines” approved.
If there are indeed legitimate anti-Cabal forces in Russia, if indeed they can prevail, if Ukraine is more than just another engineered crisis, which, like Covid, is aimed at all nation states and ordinary peoples of the world (no more at Russia than at all of the west), then…..who knows.
Good luck to you.
Military chronicle – voenhronika.ru
Writer Zakhar Prilepin on social networks commented on the news that the Russian military leadership had decided to increase the grouping of troops in Ukraine by 50 thousand people.
According to him, such a decision was made a long time ago, and people with serious combat experience will go to Ukraine.
“Really, very experienced people will come, and there are really a lot of them. And in reality, more than one kilometer will not be exposed on other borders of the Russian Federation, and no peacekeepers will be taken out of nowhere for the sake of this. However, their appearance will be very noticeable, ”Prilepin wrote.
According to him, the appearance of these fighters in Ukraine will be good news.
“The good guys are coming. On good technique. The guys are ready, they are picking up the equipment,” he said.

“Writer Zakhar Prilepin on social networks commented on the news that the Russian military leadership decided to increase the grouping of troops in Ukraine by 50,000 people.”
Never heard of Prilepin but that means nothing. However, I sincerely doubt that VVP and GA Shoigu discussed anything with anyone in regards to the current TOE and Deployment of Russian Forces in Orcland. No battle plan survives the first grinding crunch with the enemy, this being one of many reasons ‘battle plans’ are amazingly flexible and subject to instant change as the situation warrants. These changes can go all the way down from top brass to an infantry fire team as situations change, and trust me, situations are in constant flux. Nothing is engraved in stone beyond ‘Victory Will Be Ours’ in the end. And it will be.
It has been fascinating to watch modern Russian military doctrine in action. The ‘built in’ flexibility really helps mitigate the uncertainties of the battlefield. BTG’s are locking down territory that in WWII would have required a full division or more.
“No battle plan survives the first grinding crunch with the enemy, this being one of many reasons ‘battle plans’ are amazingly flexible and subject to instant change as the situation warrants. These changes can go all the way down from top brass to an infantry fire team as situations change, and trust me, ”
I trust Andrei Martynanov on this, and he seems to say something different.
I recommend his “Operational Plans 101,” available elsewhere at this blog.
I really hope that is true they are needed. But not if those troops are included in the volunteer numbers. They need to be regular troops. They also need a large number of the volunteer troops. They need to be deployed in support of the LDNR forces. And for security along the borders and in the liberated areas. Just as the Soviets did in WW2 and Afghanistan.There are the frontline troops,and there are 2nd echelon forces needed.
Those extra troops in the article need to be added to the frontline forces. The US and their allies used around 127,000 troops to subdue Iraq in 2003. And Iraq at that time had only half the population of Ukraine. And much less territory. As well as a military force nowhere near as dangerous and well equipped as the Kiev regime’s Ukrainian forces. From what we hear from many sources Russia only used somewhere between 50-120 thousand troops in the SMO so far. While they have done stellar work with those numbers,there comes a time to understand they aren’t enough to complete the mission. Adding 50 thousand as talked about is good. But without securing effectively the rear areas there will be major problems for the future. The addition of large volunteer forces as 2nd echelon troops would solve that issue.
As well as recruiting cadres of local forces,police and territorial militia to aid them in liberated areas. The Zelensky regime is actually helping in that recruitment I would think. Since they have banned all political parties that were in the opposition. And said they would persecute and kill as traitors any of the thousands of people that have by now taken food from Russia. And aren’t actively opposing Russian forces in the liberated areas. That should be creating a vast pool of potential supporters of Russia to recruit from.
Along those lines if Russia follows though with some of the things that have been talked about for the liberated areas. Such as replacing the Ukrainian currency with the Russian currency. Switching all the cell phone,internet,TV and radio programing,and banks, over to Russian providers. And most especially canceling in liberated areas all citizen and business debts to the Ukrainian and foreign state and banks. As well as getting the local economies back up and running. That would bring Russia a huge groundswell of support from those areas citizens. Now is the time to make those moves and secure that support they will need during and after the SMO.
Russia already started absorbing some areas, like Kherson. Ruble (or dual currency) usage, telco(internet) is being switched over, trade with RUssia(Crimea) has resumed, farmers were provided with fertilizers and fuel
Congrats, Russians. Hope you are going to be free and save from WHO utterly corrupted by big pharma, anglosionist like Gates, Soros, Rotschilds, Faucii… and their love, eugenics, the science promoted by sionists and nacis. Now rebranded and called often biomedicine of which purpose is simple, depopulation and new race of denegerated serving class.
Withdrawal from WTO and WHO would be a very good move for all free people in this whole world. Those organizations are pure evil. My thanks to Russia to fight for humanity since my country does nothing.
Agree!!! Wish we had a Putin running America. We have a demented imbecile that has never had a real job his entire miserable life. A career politician who has spawned a bunch of drug addict, sex perverted, grifting, thieves. The installed in in 2020 after they stole the election. Putin loves his country and was not willing to sell them out. Much respect. He truly is fighting for all people in the world who want to be free and not live as cattle under the sociopath “elites”.
One good thing Trump did—and it was something I for one did not understand at the time—was to withdraw the USA from WHO.
Those all are excellent institutions to get out of. Especially the WHO, which the globalist cabal is using to impose a treaty on member countries which would entail the WHO usurping vast swaths of national sovereignty in the name of its “pandemic” authority. Of course this really will mean the direct dictatorship of the WEF, the Gates Foundation, the Davos cabal.
WWIII is much bigger than just Russia vs. NATO. Western globalist technocracy launched this war on all of humanity years ago.
I say squeeze, Russia, SQUEEEEEEZE!!!
This is war, total war, led by the West, more specifically by the ever expanding hegemonic Empire, against the “Rest”, more than 85% of humanity, beginning with you, Russia… and China. Said Empire intends first to weaken and to ultimately destroy you both.
Thus, humanity’s challenge is now to necessarily create a new world, liberated, free from imperial totalitarianism, with its own entirely new world order.
You can do it, Russia . Help the Rest of the world meet that challenge. Hit your hardest then SQUEEEEEEZE!!!… leaving the Empire choking, way behind!
That is great news!
I see precisely zero reason for Russia to be a member of any of these ‘organizations’, they are simply used to suck giant money from Mother with always the sword of Damocles hanging over Mother’s head with the threat of yet another ban and more sanctions. As insult to injury, when Mother is banned from anything she is pointedly reminded that she owes millions for membership and past transgressions. A pox on the lot of them.
Good to see you, Auslander, I hope you are in good health now.
All the best!
Russia is reconfiguring its relations to the “Old World Order,” at the same time restructuring a real New World Order based on different principles, sword of Damocles aside. Issue is, why would Russia be tied to organizations which are used by the Empire of Lies to harass and encircle Russia day in and day out, 24/7. A new configuration of the UN should be the long term task of Russia, China, Iran, India, et al, where equality and justice rule for all, and where the principles that led to the creation of the UN are practiced.
Recall that the UN’s response to the invasion of Iraq was very muted after Bush threatened to withdraw funding.
As for a new UN, there was a very popular 1971 song that ended: “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”.
Russia at the UN has veto status on the Security Council. It is the IMF and World Bank that are more problematic, as votes are cast based on GDP numbers that are manipulated.
It’s great to see you back here, Auslander. This reader (among many others I’m sure) would very much welcome your own broad assessment of recent and current developments if you can find the time and the inclination to provide one.
I am indeed back after a fashion and I will contribute to Saker as I can. It is very difficult to write, the bouts with the disease have affected my ability to see. Mentally there may be some questions but then there always was such questions methinks.
At any rate, at least for the time being I’m back.
Very sorry about your health problems and the adverse effects, Auslander. I’m sure it must have some impact on your mental outlook as it would for anyone, but I’m equally sure that your mental acuity remains as sharp as always. In any case, your health comes first by all means. Just a word or two when you feel up to it will be welcome.
Welcome back, hope the recovery is 100%
In my point of view, an East version of WHO will be created soon, agglutinating friendly countries with Russia and China (maybe BRICS countries) in the leadership. Let’s make the medicine patents free for use of the countries, if necessary. A new and more solidary world is urgent.
🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡The US authorities are ready to completely deprive Russia of the ability to make bond payments after May 25 – Bloomberg
According to the agency, the US Department of the Treasury will cancel the so-called general license, which excludes payments for servicing a part of the sovereign debt of the Russian Federation from anti-Russian sanctions.
Russia can just cut off fertilizer exports and say we will pay you and rubles when you idiots are ready to take it or we won’t pay. Also no neon gas which is vital for making integrated circuits.
Well, given the fact that most buyers of those bonds are western private financial institutions, I don’t think that blocking Russia from making payments on their bonds would be a problem for the russians – it would be the bagholders (sorry, I meant to say “bondholders”) who’ll have to write off those bonds from their balance sheets, i.e. on those bonds they’ll have to suffer 100% losses.
I wonder if anyone in the US government remembers 1998, when Russia enacted a moratorium on its foreign debt, and, thanks to the heavily interconnected financial world, it brought down a small hedge-fund with only 1 trillion of bets named Long-Term Capital Management. That downfall almost brought down the entire bond and stock markets in US. Indeed by today standards (with 30+ trillions of US debt), 1 trillion may not sound much, but back in those days…
“The European Union will not allow Ukraine to run out of weapons and military equipment” – head of European diplomacy Borrell.
Meanwhile, the EU should take care that Ukraine does not run out of Ukrainians. But this resource does not bother them.
We should not allow this no-hoper Borrell to utter such bullshit in our name.
Europe better watch it not run out of equipment.
I’ve come to believe that that is the agenda as Ukrainians are Slavic and thus hated by the overlords same as Russians. I was at the Gettysburg battlefield yesterday with my 18-year-old son and I said to him “Can you imagine if Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee came back from the dead and witnessed today’s world?” Without hesitation he replied “They would join forces!” The Ukrainian General Staff should try the debased pos zelensky for treason and hang him for all the world to see, then join forces with Russia and go after the filthy overlords who perpetrate this war fiasco between brothers and so many other historical crimes.
If true that Russia will withdraw from WTO and WHO, I applaud this.
Suppose tomorrow you, reader, are prime minister of a European country. You wish to make a decision on a topic – any topic – and you are told what you propose cannot be done, because the country is part of an international organisattion, and has signed a treaty. Of course, you can withdraw from the treaty, but the treaty contains hundreds of other measures, and withdrawal has to be notified a year in advance. The result is that, even if you were prime minister, there is little you can do that matters. As politicians can’t solve problems that matter, they end up making laws to solve problems that do not matter, but get them thirty seconds of prime time news.
Things also work without international organisation or treaty. Just look at what others are doing and copy what works.
I suspect that the withdrawal from the WHO is a result of what the Russians discovered in America’s biowarfare laboratories in Ukraine. WHO complicity requires Russia to withdraw in order to emphasize its accusations about how WHO has been captured by U.S. neocons. How could Russia condemn the WTO if it still remained part of this?
The withdrawal from the WTO does indeed suggest that Russia is joining with the SCO to create a new, parallel set of institutions to the WTO, IMF and World Bank so as to break free from US neoliberal control.
This is part of creating a new multipolar economic order, of which the current Flight for Control of Europe is merely the opening front.
@ Michael Hudson
Great point, thanks.
I thought the WHO was perceived as an institution under Chinese influence.
What you say makes since, Prof. Hudson, in regards to that you can’t complain about a group in which you’re also a member. But isn’t China Russia’s ally? Should we expect China will be the next to announce its departure?
The WHO has Russian members, 25. The WHO has Chinese members, 50.
The rest of the staff of 4,000 are mostly all from NATO countries.
How will Russia address biowarfare threat against it. Even if the military situation in ukraine is resolved how will it defend against biowarfare from west? Diplomacy will not work and west will likely continue with biowarfare. Bioweapons are the new nuclear weapons except they cannot be defended against and they do not destroy infrastructure. Biowarfare MAD I don’t think will work either, west would just use plausible deniability.
I struggle to see how this is resolved.
@Neo: “West would just use plausible deniability.”
Except when Western armies sneeze first, as happened when Covid-19 escaped from a U$ Biowarfare Lab near West Point Military Academy in 2018 – 2019 (the same Fort Detrick which allowed Anthrax to escape). It might eventually dawn on U$ Military Intelligence officers that there is a connection between the extraordinary number of U$ Biowarfare Labs and the extraordinary number of U$ military and U$ citizens reported ill with Covid-19.
I would think Russia’s timing of its WHO/WTO announcement is more than merely coincidental with this ‘announcement’, Monday;
Break that connection, and you go a long way to breaking Western neoliberal Capitalism.
Also interesting to note that Ukraine’s Neon production has 2 producers, the lesser in Odessa (!), the larger in………….?
Mariupol! And, if you think that’s not of any particular significance, think again;
“…Some 45% to 54% of the world’s semiconductor-grade neon, critical for the lasers used to make chips, comes from two Ukrainian companies….”
From what I can gather, Ukraine’s ‘market dominance’ comes about because of the combination of the steel making process operating in Ukraine (common with Russia), and particular materials used in producing steel in Ukraine, and those materials mainly come from Russia. The combination of process and specific materials makes it hard to replicate elsewhere.
The Neon is produced almost as a co- or by- product of the steel manufacture. Years back, the Neon was almost a waste product – then, semi conductor chip production exploded, and demand for Neon went through the roof. Neon can be produced using other processes and materials, but Ukraine’s market dominance came about from the usual supply chain/capital investment/operating cost evaluations.
The Russians have already shown a talent for exploiting scarcity – ‘Asymmetric Economics’?
Then, there’s this idiocy – https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/us-moves-toward-blocking-russian-debt-payments-raising-likelihood-default
“The latest attempt at inflicting maximum punishment and pressure on Russia amid its grinding war in Ukraine has many scratching their heads, as the US is now set to block Moscow’s ability to pay its sovereign debt – though ironically which Russia appears ready and willing to pay, if it weren’t for the far reaching US-led sanctions imposed on its central financial institutions in the first place…..”
Russia loses its ‘Institutional Credit Rating’ (while having no need to borrow from insto’s that ‘trust’ that credit rating), creditors lose real money, and the world goes on needing to trade with Russia, lest they decide it best to maximise scarcities in their ‘markets’, with all the downsides that brings, just to ‘pressure Putin and weaken Russia’.
These folks are not operating with a full deck!
“The West” is slowly but steadily being cut off from the rest of the world.
A new civilization is rising, in which “the West” will take the position that they deserve. Nations that want to cooperate on just terms will have much influence, and nations that can’t accept these premises will be less influential, or rather, they will be forced to become subordinate if they want to be a part of the civilized world at all.
“So the last will be first, and the first last.” (Matthew 20:16)
Western Colonialism. After the USSR fell – the west could not wait to get it’s filthy hands on Russia’s riches and resources. Putin and other Russians saved Russia. I hope all Russians remember that.
Why I did not see a single word in The saker about surrenders of Mariupol yesterday ? I am sure it is an imoortant fact. Are you hiding any unconfessable reason ?
Covered, May 16th sitrep.
well, it was only a matter of time – plus it is an ongoing thang.
there are some 2500 doodes under there. Some colorful characters are sure to surface sooner or later…
I find news a bit confusing. Sputnik reports that a little less than 300 troops were taken out including 51 wounded. At the same time I see report that everyone has been evacuated from Mariupol. . The operation at Mariupol has ended is the headline.
So what happened to 400 wounded, nearly 1500-2000 Azov inside catacombs? Were there only 300 Azov inside?
It is still in process. It is not complete.
it will take days.
They are not being evacuated – they surrendered unconditionally. They need to be checked, sorted, the wounded triaged, tarnsported to holding facility, under serure conditions, ALL incarcerated, interrogated. UUUGE project.
Same with anyone else, that surrenders. And the worst is just coming – from the envelopments in Donbass proper. Thousands…mabbe tens of…What to do with them all??? The manpower it will take….a nightmare.
Dunno if You remember at the start of the Afghan-US war the prison riot at Qala-i-Jangi(Mazar-i-sharif) Took like a week to flush some hundred doodes…Flush them – literally.
Looking at their procedures, the Russians are lenient.
Gulag didnt live in vain.
A new outraged Solzhenitsyn will be born and the grown up Solzhenitsyn will write new outraged books.
As our dear Lord, honoured be his name, says: “There is nothing new under the sun”.
on account of the amount of information available on almost any of us/them – a fairer court procedure can be established based upon evidence to separate the chaff from the wheat???
I have no problem handing over any of these people to a local court/population. None.
After a fair trial.
Too much to ask? Dunno. I do not live there. From what I have seen the last 8 years, they can handle it. With some restraints – which civilization requires of us – methinx…
I imagine there will be some that won’t come out under any circumstance. And here is why, many of those that will remain were essentially acting like the NAZI Einsatzgruppen during World War II and the Russians have the names:
TORTURE IN UKRAINE: INTERVIEW WITH LAURENT BRAYARD (ENG SUBS, FRENCH LANG, REUP)
Stratpol recently interviewed Laurent Brayard, a French journalist and pro-Donbass activist who has been collecting testimonies of Ukraine’s prison survivors: militiamen, spies or innocent passerby, the stories he collected shed a new light on the historical roots of the ongoing conflict, and the methods used by Ukrainians since 2014.
The last thing I wanted to do was sit through 45 mins of English subtitles, but what the journalist describes is worse than any of the 18+++ videos posted here.
After watching that, you will understand why Russia began the SMO, why it must win (morally) and what the United States has become / represents. And if you think the UN or Red Cross are the good guys in this, this video will disabuse you of that… they are just bought off tools of the “Empire of Lies”.
The Russians should just seal in anyone who remains in Azovstal with poured concrete and be done with it. IMHO
I will say that to You…I have watched it – some of it. It gets repetitive. This is not new to me. I have…neg,ected to go…there 😬 I hate myself for it.
I will say again.
Identify the criminals.
The procedure is the guarantee, that you do not end up in the history books right next to your nemesis.
I WILL shoot ya – after a fair trial.
I WILL have you shot – after a fair trial….or before…
and sleep like a baby…
For that – I will have to know one thing: I have never left my home – they came over here to kill me.
Well, I am still here.
I CAN accept/deserve to be shot – after a fair trial.
Which concept civilization rests upon…a fair exchange – an eye for an eye.
What do ya say?
Oh man … why you did not see? … because you did not look! First time posters should look around before they speak.
Russia is taking off the shackles that the west had it in for over 30 years. Russia doesn’t need these pathological leeches on its back. Be free. Russia and its neighbors, if they want, can form their own analogue organizations that actually do give a shit about health, economy, and not simply trying to turn the world into a slave plantation to control others and benefit themselves.
Over 300 years of shackles, that is. Petrine Westernization is now dead, and the West itself killed it.
American Clif High is a programmer (oder man) who since 1997 has a huge database of content from the web he uses to predict future events because of things the elites post. It is uncanny. He knows history like no one I ever heard before. He is very smart.
He said this is a 1,100 year war between Russia/Orthodox Church versus the “names stealers” aka Khazarian Mafia (KM). KM also included the Bolsheviks who murdered 25 million innocent Russians and Ukrainians. Clif High said Putin was picked by the Church many years ago to save Russia. Clif said Russia will win this thousand plus year war. These KM monsters control much of the world.
Hey Russia!!!! It is smart to keep the World Health organization as far away from your borders as possible.
Especially now as the WHO is signing up compliant countries to it’s “pandemic treaty”. Bye bye sovereignty to any country that signs.
Leaving WHO, smart move!
A bit of topic but I’ve been mulling over the reasons for Scott Ritter’s sudden change of heart about the prospects of success of Russia’s operation in Ukraine. His argument that in essence he’s sudenly realised that NATO is constituting a well armed and reinvigorated Ukrainian army in the west for a summer counter-attack, is totally unconvincing and he must know a pipe dream. I can’t help but believe that Ritter’s been “got at” one way or another by the powers that be. I’m not going to speculate as to why or the trolls who are appearing here and elswhere trying to backen his name. My main interest is why those who are running this war in the West, have bothered. I doubt they worry about Ritter’s influence on the likes of us who are not taken in by the mainstream presstitute lies. They know we are a small minority wth no influence on anyone who counts. The reason I suspect is they are getting more and more jumpy about a growing realisation among the Ukrainian military that they’ve been sold a pup by NATO, and they are being sacrificed for their own ends by people (including the drugged up actor nominally leading them), who could not care less about Ukraine. It is absolutely vital they maintain the fiction that Russia can be defeated, and “turning” Ritter is part of this. It seems a futile hope, but at this stage they must be clutching at straws. Anyone have any better idea?
I see this happen quite often. Many “Alternative sites/news” pop up with engagement and enthusiastic journalists making extraordinary factual article and after some years lower profile or tire out for some or another reason; RT, Russian Insider, South Front, m.m.
Its actually amazing Saker can continue to increase the quality here for so many years.
If the US State Department/Pentagon can focus on such a little site as South Front (budget $5000/mth) as a threat to US National Security we are out in comics.
Whatever it is, let us respect the professional analysis Ritter gave. What was good cannot return bad.
I agree. I am not going to judge anyone whose heart is basically in the right place and has had his head above the parapet for many years. I have just heard that Scott Ritter is billed to address the upcoming Ron Paul Institute conference in Houston 0n 4 June (as it happens, George III’s birthday, Americans might be interested to hear!). It will be fascinating to hear what he’s got to say.
The only change of heart that matters is the sob’s sitting under the ‘fire rain’, have you seen the vid footage. Literally ‘fire rain’. If you seen the vid of the latest attack on Avozstal, the fire rain’ was something to behold. Just can’t imagine being anywhere near that, and thats happening in other areas, plus deployment of completely new battle systems. No harm to Ritter, but he ain’t there.
A satirical take :
Russia ought to quickly exit –
WHO = world homicide organization,
WTO = world trampling organization;
both of which are fronts for –
WEF = world euthanasia forum
As the author states :
Keep calm and pay in Rubles
The Ruble firmed past 64 per dollar on Monday, briefly jumping to 62.71 to the greenback, and climbed towards its highest in nearly five years against the euro.
In Spain we know Borrell well; an opportunist at the service of the best master… Do you remember Borrell when in the 80’s all the left and you shouted about NATO NO and AMERICAN BASES OUT? Who saw you then and sees you now…ayy
Forward Great Bear! Victory is The Mother Russia Way!
Russia should also consider laying the groundwork with other like-minded countries to establish new and fairer multi-polar institutions including a new forum to replace the corrupted and poisoned so-called United Nations.
Not sure if Russian World needs such bodies. In the internet era, the countries can quickly coordinate their efforts without needing a middleman.
I can understand withdrawing from the WTO & some of the other memberships, but why WHO?
Why paying so much money to an organization that didn’t authorised Russian vaccine?
Russia can make vaccines and distribute to other countries, give the patents and allow others to produce without WHO.
Why paying a bunch of bureaucrats for nothing? Countries can deal and better without all these freeloaders that just preach others what to do and tend to run the world, dictate as EU is doing with EU countries, now they want to make EU right over the countries constitutions
And Who wants to act globally and dictate over the countries the politics in case of a new pandemic, the best is to be independent of all these organisations
No WHO Pandemic Treaty for Russia.
Complicity by WHO in bioweapons labs in Ukraine.
This is a title from US MSMS: “Voice of the people: Prevent genocide with American boots on the ground”
I am afraid US/Poland is going to attack soon.
No worries. The Americans are getting into wars only when the war is decided, and always on the side of the victor. That is the American way of ensuring they present themselves as the greatest fighting force in the hostiry of the world……until they got their azzes handed over to them by the Afghanistan’s goat herders!
What!!! Russia is preparing to leave Gates’ WHO???!!! You mean no more Fauci sauce for Russians??? What’s mayor of Moscow going to do now? He was so eager to oblige Gates of Hell and his puppeteers.
If this happens I think move to Russia would be a very good idea.
If Russia does want to get rid of the collective west it would be necessary to crash Europe in one big blow, not militarily, not politically, but economically.
Just raise up another iron curtain from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea, in one instance no more trade in oil, no more trade in gas, coal, nickel … nothing. Only this his will lead to the complete touch down of European Union of Socialistic Soviet Republics (EUSSR, including UK, Japan, South Korea). Of course it will hurt Russia, too, but Russia since long time ago already is used to it and will recover soon, while Europe (Japan …) no longer will be a (useful) weapon of the US, thus the US is no longer able to impose it’s rules/ideology to the world.
All you (Russia) need is … an iron curtain (again), no (military) war, no financial war, no political blah, blah.
After Europe has been crashed, please, Russia, make sure to build a land bridge from Belarus to Kaliningrad and thereafter please don’t forget to squeeze the Baltics a little bit, and may be, the rest of Poland a little bit more (after all Poland deserves it).
Logically speaking, since the US is the one causing the trouble behind the scenes, wouldn’t it make more sense to crash the USAian economy (dunno about the remaining Four Eyes) first? Because even if the European economy were crashed, wouldn’t the USA look for new puppets to manipulate?
UK and Europe are irrational. The US has tried to cut them off from Russian gas, oil, and everything. Russia has remained open for trade. And who is the enemy? Novichok!
China’s One Belt One Road will be great for Europe’s economy, if the EU can get Yanqui to piss off home.
Now do you see why US is described as “splittist”?
I don’t think West is giving up at all.
I think, likely, that this is all a feint, similar to Russia’s Kiev feint, the West asking for surrender etc seems like it’s on back foot in this war but may be in reality poised to escalate. I think the risk of. A serious false flag is at the highest it’s ever been right now.
Russia leadership I hope is not lulled into any false sense of security. America and UK are devious. Like a coiled snake they only coil to strike again.
82nd airborne, thousands of troops mobilized. I believe they are getting ready to occupy west Ukraine and from there keep up a conflict with Russia.
This is not over yet. The first strike missed a bit, the second strike is coming.
“thousands of troops” … would be an inviting target for Russia. Personally, I don’t think the Pentagon wants any part of that.
Look at how the political class handled any of the crises befallen the west in the last decades.
I expect firm and complete incompetence(from the pov of a citizen. I expect both the EU and the US up in flames(internal) soon.
Get ready doodes!
SOME reserves put you light-years ahead of someone, who is week from hunger.
Hahaha, do you really think that the administration that is fighting to survive, that has nothing working for itself, with the economy being devastated, seeing the largest inflation in the last 50 years, unprecedented influx of illegal immigrants, dealing with the crime as it has never been seen before, desperately trying to hide the facts that its own agencies, FDA and CDC, killed a million of its own citizens in the last 2 years, wants to see thousands of dead bodies of America’s youth being brought back from the Eastern Front? Think again….
Given the way the west open escalates, stepping over the lines in the sand, etc and watches Russia not retaliate I would not be surprised to see NATO openly state that it’s bringing peacekeepers in to Ukraine to stabilize the nation…. and then just look Russia dead in the eye to see what happens.
The people who would organize this would safely elsewhere. Make Russia attack NATO as justification… not to retaliate, but for a massive ‘defensive’ offence in to Ukraine. To deny forward movement to Russia.
I do not see if any problem to Russia in Rubles!! We need to have peace in the world, no more war!!!!!!!!!! I do not think why is USA not doesn’t want peace.
WTO withdrawal I understand. The adjudication methods of WTO are slow corrupt and often fail to address issues as per treaty.
WHO I would like to understand the reasoning better.
Truth Seeker, in the next couple weeks countries are voting to hand over “public health” sovereignty to the WHO, giving them the power to decide a country is a pandemic risk, order & enforce whatever Tedros decides is necessary, from masks, to lockdowns, business closures, forced vaccinations, whatever insanity they decide is public health.
Basically one world government disguised as public health.
If Russia exits the WHO now, that confirms that Putin is not WEF.
I just saw on the French “news” that the International Criminal Court is starting its biggest ever investigation –in Ukraine!!!!! Surprise! Never was the Iraq war, or Afghanistan War, Libya, Syria , Yugoslavia (NATO’s fun in destroying Serbia) ever considered as worthy of investigation. After all, they were perpetrated by the good guys, us, the Wonderful West!!!
The French newspapers did not even mention Mariupol, Nazis or even evacuation. Not a word about Ukraine, after all these weeks of insisting the Ukies were beating those evil Russkies and giving us stunning professional films and screenplays of king Volodomir holding forth in all the democracies n the world. Not a word today.
What about those Hunter Biden-DOD-Metabiota bioweapons labs in the Ukraine that Nuland and Senator Rubio admitted to? Many many people involved in this need to be charged, convicted and hung for genocide.
Russia doesn’t recognize the authority of the International Criminal Court – they withdrew their signature from the Rome Statute. BTW, the same is true for the US as well.
UN next up – a complete separation of the sane from the blowhard psychopaths. Cutting off at the umbilical cord the parasitic infestation and building healthy relationships free of gunboat diplomacy.
This is what Isolation looks like!
Latest from https://voenhronika.ru/
HUGE COLUMNS of prisoners are coming out of Azovstal. Latest reports and maps of battles in Ukraine: Yuriy Podolyaka – evening of May 17 (15 videos)
The breakthrough of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Volchansk was not confirmed, some groups apparently nevertheless crossed over the Seversky Donets, but the situation is under control. A general battle continues in the Donbass, the result of which, if the idea of the Russian General Staff is realized, is the complete defeat of the Donbass front with a series of boilers, the first of which could be the Severodonetsk-Lysichansk boiler.
There are continuous battles for Kamyshevakha, to the east of which Orekhovo was liberated today, creating a threat to Zolote and Gorskoye and at the same time to the rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Kamyshevakh. On the southern face of the Donbass front, there are no special changes.
Sources confirm the effective defeat of the training center of the Armed Forces of Ukraine “Desna” in the Chernihiv region. According to some reports, up to 300 enemy troops were destroyed. At 4.30 am, a missile and bomb strike by the forces of the Russian Aerospace Forces hit 4 barracks and adjacent territories.
In 1944, at the Bretton Woods conference, the Allied countries (including the USSR) signed a post-war financial modeling pact.
Institutions (IMF, IBRD, GATT/WTO) were created to minimally stabilize international economic relations, preventing recurrent crises from leading to new world wars.
When these institutions, and the dollar itself, become a weapon of war against Russia, it is the declared end of what was left of Bretton Woods after the unilateral end of the dollar-gold monetary standard in 1971.
It is also a testament to the current hegemonic power’s incompetence in avoiding a new world war.
Domination is no longer viable through consensus, and needs to be imposed by force.
Only this time the use of force leads to the use of nuclear weapons.
And in this regard, because of its hypersonic missiles (capable of reaching 6 to 25 times the speed of sound), Russia finds itself at a strategic advantage for the first time.
The so-called “unipolar world” has become an unburied corpse, haunting the planet with the threat of dragging us along with it to its grave.
However, building a multipolar world, founded on multi-nationality, multi-culturalism and multi-ethnicity is not a simple challenge.
In what kind of world would we all, nations and individuals, be humanly different, socially equal, and totally free?
And NATO and the EU are starting to split as predicted. The EU has been going for weeks to close the sixth sanctions package and if it doesn’t hurry Germany will still get out first. Erdogan, on the other hand, I believe that it is done with Putin even because of Putin’s calm. Contrary to what the West said that Erdogan just wanted a candy.
Hey guys and girls. I think I found another westerner NATO coming out of the Azovstal. Looks like an American officer or ex officer. Could be northern European or Canadian but I think American.
Go to Intel Slava Z on Telegram. 0:50 seconds. Baseball cap pulled down tight, middle aged, hip glasses, obviously not happy. Thin and fit like some retired Air Force colonel. Has a pack with a bedroll. No way he is Ukie.
It went up today the video is “Exclusive Footage from Izvestia:” Go to Intel Slava Z on Telegram.
Trying to do a screen grab. Sad there were three younger attractive ladies coming out but I guess they saved their lives so that is good. The Russians/DPR/LPR seem to be incredibly compassionate in dealing with the wounded and surrendered. Bless them. I doubt I could show such mercy and kindness.
Actually the American mercenary is the one shown in the last frame of that video – and I must admit: some of those ladies were rather attractive.
This guy at 0:50 seconds or even as early as 47 seconds. He is either an America or Canadian. Even his posture shifting his weight on one foot, hands in his pockets and looking ahead impatently for what is taking so long is American.
I would also support russian withdrawal from WTO.
WTO must be revised in a number of its provisions, perhaps dozens of them.
BUT as far as I know, China adheres to it and trade must have some pretty solid rules. I can only guess this move is temporary and as such, Putin must not hesitate to cut the ties and feel free hands on part of trade until they remove the santions.
Let me add: President Putin should NATIONALIZE the Central Bank of Russia. The CBR is a cog in the privately owned of the Globo International Organized Crime Syndicate.
I figured out why civilian buildings get targeted.
Western news channels are all talking about Mikhail Khodaryonok on Russian State TV:
To me the timing of this coming out just when Azovstal has totally fallen and AZOV-nazi’s surrender is very very suspicious. Mind you, in the West we see nothing from Russian TV and suddenly right now this is literally all over every news channel. Anyone any idea what’s going on here?
He aint exactly wrong, but as I, he would like to break out from the relative isolation. Methinx it is just a matter time.
As such, every outfit on the opposite side will interpret it as desperation on the Russian side.
I would describe it a desire, that I personally share. I have nothing against the population the the “west”. Hell, I live in a nato country. Yet, I have NO loyalty to ANY of our neighbors – not to mention nato. NONE.
I would like to converse with political/economic partners, that are dependable and fair.
…and be that in return.
As far as his claims – yeah – it`s all there – and worse.
Get ready for it all – but do not give up hope, that we get a break.
It is a huge poker party boyz.
This Mikhail is so relentlessly negative that I think he is just venting emotionally. Don’t know about the military stuff in Ukraine except for the obvious. With regard to the Russian isolation, I really doubt that is going to be all that damaging, and that is even if it sustains for the foreseeable future. In the short run it pushes up the price of what Russia has to sell, and in the long run new trade patterns will develop. Both the Russians and the Europeans will be somewhat less well off owing to the breakdown in trade, but if the populations will put up with it, the political damage will be minimal.
China is unlikely to buckle on Russia because they have the West as a common enemy. If Russia goes down as an independent country, China will go down also because they are resource poor and need a resource rich country that is reliable. Hard to get a better fit for China than Russia, and our numb-nuts politicians are pushing them together.
India can’t go anti Russian because they need the fertilizer and there is no secondary supplier. And you know, there is a whole world full of countries that would be happy to buy resources at a discount price. Plus if it continues the discount price won’t be all that much less, so Russia will be okay.
Not that I can see the future with my crystal ball, but neither can these other ‘experts’.
“relentlessly negative” first time I see him, not sure what you are getting at – mabbe he a crow in many such programs? Dunno. Tell me. In this appearance, he seems – realistic to me. Prepare for the worst. Check!
Isolation – not good. leads to shitload of misunderstandings. Translate this to the military field. Not good. friggin dangerous. Even after ukraine.
I can not get behind this – “the west is out to get us”.
It is not the WEST. It is the political terrorists, that have the hoi poloi under their vaxxine-russofobia.
It doesnt last.
As far as tha far – east – FAAAR beyond my paygrade. This side of the pond I get how some of the gears roll.
They’re toning down the anti-west sentiment of the Russian population and are advocating for reconciliation with the west. The same is happening in EU, Italy and France started talking about people being happy in Mariupol after its liberation and about Azov war crimes. In reality during all these phone calls Macron and Putin have been working together to bring down the hostilities behind the US and the UK backs. Macron is a great actor (for the anecdote he married his acting teacher), it was obvious he was against the war in the first days of the conflict but then he ramped up the aggressive rhetoric to not be targeted by the new McCarthy clan. It’s almost certain the french NATO officers in Ukraine were a remainder of the Hollande era. Macron has been repeatedly critical of NATO in the past and he certainly didn’t change his stance now. He’s just doing his best to not be antagonized by the americans since most of Brussels is under their control.
Not to say he’s a good president for France, far from it, but when it comes to this particular situation he has been maneuvering skillfully. If you need any confirmation, in a recent RT article he was mentioned as the only european leader trying to lead the EU away of American influence. It’s certainly not a coincidence.
Now the issue with that particular interview is that it may appease the EU but it certainly won’t the US and the UK. But maybe the Russian State assessed these twos were a lost cause.
The Duma is considering a Bill to say that the Avoz nazis can not be exchanged as prisoners. That they must instead face justice for their crimes. We will see if the Bill becomes law:
The State Duma intends to ban the exchange of war criminals from the nationalist regiment “Azov”*
In response to such a proposal by Anatoly Wasserman, Vyacheslav Volodin instructed the Duma Defense Committee to prepare an appropriate protocol instruction.
“Nazi criminals should not be exchanged. These are war criminals and we must do everything to bring them to justice,” the Chairman of the State Duma emphasized.
* The Azov Battalion is recognized as an extremist organization banned in the territory of the Russian Federation
Link them to a crime.
…or join them in their whims…as we all shall soon after…
The idea that a law is needed over this is perplexing. What is the logic? That the neoliberals in the Kremlin will insist on trading them for some nephew of an oligarch who is rounded up in the Ukraine? If so, that is pathetic.
This is like the idea that a law should prevent an exchange for Medvedchuk. Sorry, but the leader of your country can’t let personal relations get in the way during wartime, well, “special operations” time. And Putin won’t. Stalin watched his son die, and that was correct.
Use civil laws for most. The way those are – cos most of us agree on them. There is procedure, context, precedent.
There are a few exemptions.
They should stay a few. For a reason….?…
Trust me…ya not there yet…
I’m eagerly awaiting news that among the Azovstal prisoners is Leautenant Colonel Alexander Vindman. As some might recall, Vindman was the immigrant from the Ukraine that presumed to initiate impeachment precedings against President Trump for being insufficiently dedicated to shipping American weaponry to Ukraine.
I suspect that Ukraine’s forces elsewhere will be surrendering to. This war is over. Ukraine lost. Time for them to run away but not make babies because all of their men have been killed or castrated.
It is 03:57 in our quiet and quite bucolic little valley on Northside. The world is at peace or so one would think, it is so quiet I can hear our children’s foot pads on the walkways as they take their morning amble, even our newest baby girl Kristl’Yannah is quiet and calm. The latest missile launch at 04:01 didn’t disturb any of them in the least, they are used to the night and day long racket as packets of missiles launch themselves and head north…yet again.
After the innnbreeders who own the “democratic” west kill off a bunch of sub-human slavs in a provoked by them ( Nuclear Armed Terrorist Organization) war, they will blow up their own economies, and the REAL fascists will buy it all up for pennies on the dollar. Blackrock, Statestreet, and their ILK will show their true colors, and rule the west with an iron fist. These entities are truely mammon worshippers and only answer to their shareholders. The west becomes the new Godless U.S.S.A. and Russia becomes the Christian centered light for the world. You just can’t make this s**t up, as V.T.’s Jim Dean always says.
“Russia has just started the process to withdraw from Council of the Baltic Sea States.”
And no need to wonder. USA is seeing Baltic Sea as one of its Great Lakes. I just wonder when they start to call Kaliningrad as Königsberg. Finland and Sweden made their fatal NATO decisions actually in 2014, not now.
Russia should also abandon the Antarctic Treaty and tell the truth about what space programs actually are.
I suspect the Russian MOD has evidence in hand that the WHO was involved in the US bioweapons labs in Ukraine.
Since January, I have been planning on starting a diet. I have now taken a book from the library about dieting.
Also, I wanted to save more money, and only today I collected a leaflet from my bank about their savings accounts.
It is only fair to assume that I will soon be both thin and wealthy.
“As Przydach noted, Russia is destroying Western weapons by bombing roads and railways.”
I have always said that it’s going to be very hard to prevent Nato weapons from getting through to Ukraine. Now, Scott Ritter has done a U-turn by admitting that US howitzers are doing a lot of damage to Russian troops.
Russia has the choice of deploying a million more troops to conquer the whole of Ukraine right up to the Polish border or destroy everything that can move in Western Ukraine by missiles and aerial bombing.
Occupying anti-Russian regions in Galicia would be like swallowing a porcupine. That leaves the 2nd option of destroying every means of transportation in Western Ukraine from the air.
That will also mean that restUkraine will be starved of supplies. A modern society without daily supplies is a very uncomfortable place to be in.
With the enormous amount of Nato weapons being sent to Ukraine, we are already in a state of war between Nato and Russia. This is very different from what happened during the Cuba missile crisis, the Vietnam war or the Afghan war.
With every day that passes we are moving closer to WWIII and nuclear war.
Ritter did not “admit” that. He can’t admit anything as he doesn’t know anything. He stated that but that is not an admission, just an uninformed opinion. And as (Dirty) Harry Callahan famously stated “opinions are like arseholes, everyone has them”.
I think Russia can feed its people, I am not so sure that Europe will be able to. Moreover in this situation Russia, being a big food producer and exporter, holds all the cards, and has Europe over a barrel so to speak. The only thing that Europe is producing is a lot of hot air and brain-dead politicians, and this is becoming increasingly evident by the day. Moreover the Americans will look after its own interests and little incentive to look out for Europe’s increasing food and energy crisis. And into the euro-vortex of this Euro-crisis Sweden and Finland decide to join NATO! There’s no answer to that!
And how does the old saying go? Ah yes, something like this:
”Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.” Euripides
