I need your help regarding Yuri’s videos. I can download them from another site, but I cannot find a free application to translate them to English. What application is available for that?
Settings put on cc
That works on Youtube, but he is banned from there. I mean having the video from another source and running an application on it in order to have the translation.
Apart from the “settings put on cc” there is another solution concerning youtube – if Podoliaka is banned from youtube maybe it won’t help here, but maybe it will help you find another solution.
Suppose you download (from Bitchute, Timbuktou or wherever, it makes no difference) some video XYZ. If you can find the same video content anywhere on youtube (doesn’t need to be the same source file) that has videos – if you download that video (for example with y2mate) you “lose” the subtitles – but you can download those subtitles separately using downsub.com – just specify the youtube link to the content that has subtitles. (Aside: if you download youtube=ABC which has no subtitles, you can even point downsub.com to youtube=DEF if the video content is the same and DEF has the subtitles you want). Downsub can also autotranslate any language (however the results are variable – sometimes OK but often jumbled, especially translating from Russian – you can also take the Russian subtitle file and translate using Deepl for better results).
Downsub does not work with bitchute. Maybe it works with some other video hoster?? I don’t know but if your source is not bitchute you can try it. [Addendum: downsub supported sites menu lists 31 sites supported, so you might be lucky).
One quirk you may encounter: some videos include the subtitles hardwired as pixels in the video itself – in that case there is no separate subtitle file that downsub can download.
Thanks, but his 3-daily videos have no embedded subtitles usually. Youtube has the ability to auto translate live, other platforms don’t.
Is Saker blocked by pay Pal????
The English subtitles are embedded in the video. I used a Firefox plugin (Video DownloadHelper) to download both of them, and they play offline with the subtitles showing.
SIDE-NOTE: sometimes (frequently) a YouTube video will have subtitles that are not embedded and then one must use another platform to download the subtitle file – or one can view the subtitles in YouTube (one of the choices below the video) and copy this into a text reader so one can read a transcript of the video. This works for machine-generated subtitles also, so it’s better than nothing.
However, all that said, these two videos, in my experience at least, have the subtitles embedded – burned in, as it were – and should be part of the video as you downloaded it.
Thanks, I thought that there would be a free app to create the translation given a video, but the two or three I found in Google search are paid (veed.io and such).
Where from we can download the videos?
I would like to download them, so that I could extract the subtitles.
This guy is very solid, and I hope the Russian people are prepared or preparing for what is to come. Here in the west, the clowns are totally oblivious to the consequences of the their support for the neo-Nazi regime. It is clear some countries went along politically but with close to zero real support. They will move once the US loses its ability to bully and threaten others.
Interesting to hear about the Israeli executed by the neo-Nazis. Does anyone have any more information?
A video from the 36th Brigade DNR special forces guarding the boundary of the Ilych plant in Mariupol. This specifically shows them disposing of a group attempting to breakout. The dead includes the commander of the 36th separate brigade of the Marine Corps, Colonel Baranyuk Vladimir Anatolyevich.
The DPR person uses a very stange weapon to initiate the combat in the video – possibly some kind of flare gun?
The politicians in the West are stupid, not only evil. You can be evil and be clever.
That was true for people like Truman, Churchill, Adenauer…
European and American leaders now are totally stupid in every aspect of life.
People like Von der Leyen, Boris Johnson, Biden, Scholz…
They are where they are just because they come from good families with connections (all of them from the elite). But they are simply incompetent.
Any real profesional of the industry would manage the situation better than them.
So when you compare them with Putin, with his experience, progression in live, training in the KGB. They dumb kids trying to win a clever adult.
So for sure Russia prepared well. They could do even better I think, but anyway Russian leadership is much much clever than any westener politician
I think the correct term is ‘ignorant’.
They are very intelligent but intentionally avoid information that runs counter to their preferred narrative. Orwell called it doublethink, the ability to hold two contradictory points of view. You can usually tell because they refuse to discuss the issues.
Most probable вог-25, under the barrel see https://war-time.ru/item/vystrel-vog-25
RG – 6 grenade launcher probably. It has a multi grenade carousel, so no need to reload or ‘pump’ action. Don’t know what rounds they were though. Look pretty lethal.
The incident with the Israeli citizen was in the very beginning of the conflict. Several foreigners were taken hostage by Ukraine.
An Israeli citizen was killed by Ukrainian soldiers while trying to leave the country, the Israeli Foreign Ministry said on February 27, i24 News reported.
Ukrainian soldiers mistook an Israeli man along with another citizen in a car for Chechen soldiers, Channel 12 reported. The soldiers stopped the car at a roadblock, where an argument ensued between the parties, Channel 11 reported. The Israeli Foreign Ministry also confirmed his death and added that the man’s parents, who live in Israel, were already aware of it.
“…an argument ensued between the parties…”
What is it with israHellies and arguing? (rhetorical)
Looks to be some kind of an incendiary grenade launcher.
It’s a GM 94 grenade launcher. Basically a pump shotgun that fires grenades off various kinds.
Its just a grenade launcher,bit like a shotgun takes 3 or 4 30mm grenades “vog i think they call them), if you look up russian grenade launchers on you tube you will find them.
He is using a AN-94 43mm grenade launcher.
under barrel grenade launcher
The guy speaks the truth, I hope he is safe from the clutches of Elensky and company.
Does he have many people subscribing to his channel, in Ukraine?
I hope so.
Great! Good to see people remember that Elenskyy asked for the letter ‘Z’ to be banned.
I don’t think he deserves another capital letter , either, so I write elensky.
He does deserve another capital letter….’F’
Corresponding letters can be applied accordingly based on individual interpretation…..😉
The letter Z has been cancelled.
AFAIK Podolyaka is in Crimea – He is originally from Sumy in eastern Ukraine and has a significant Ukrainian accent similar to my Grandfather’s
You tube keep stopping his channels , but every time he is shut down he pops up somewhere else
He publishes about two videos each day
The other Russian Video blogger to follow is Mikhail Onufrienko – again he does at least three videos a day and is based in Crimea
I believe that the Ukrops did send someone to harm these two gentleman but they were intercepted
Both Podoliaka and Onufrienko were in Crimea, but then they were placed under protection by the FSB who caught a guy who was given 10 grand to kill one of them.
So they are somewhere in Russia, possibly in Crimea, but under protection.
And Anatolii Sharii is under protection by the Spanish cops as Ukronazis came to try to intimidate him.
You know, the “western value” of “free speech” and all that…
There are English subtitles.
Excellent. I will send this link to my brainwashed friends in Kiev and elsewhere.
But whether they will watch the videos after 30 seconds is another matter.
Send them this:
Now that Ukraine has defeated and lost access to the Sea of Azov, Ukraine’s next great victory must be prepared: the loss of access to the Black Sea. If the Russians do not calm down, Ukraine will fight another battle: it will lose all its territory up to 50 km south of Kyiv. Slava Ukraine small … and smaller, even tiny!
some guy wrote this ina comment in the Romanian press is funny
Very brave man. I hope he is prepared and armed to the teeth because the Nazis will go after him and his family.
He is from the city Sumi, former Ukraine but, he is living in Russia.
He has been active for years.
Besides, he is just one of many.
They need to first survive LNR/DNR/Russian army.
So no, they won’t (be able).
Excuse me but I find it quite chocking that a person can be pointed out, searched for, and hunted to murder for telling the situation calmly and educated as it is. I mean there is nothing special provocative (take up your arms everybody, m.m.) in his speech. One more evidence that the situation in Ukraine was/is completely out of control.
Tommy, you don’t get out much. Speaking truth to Nazis is a death sentence. They’re rabid dogs.
Factual report (in Ukrainian?) .
Reporter mentions Moldova, Georgia, but watch this space :
Team Zelensky Overplays Hand By Humiliating Germany
“This week, Team Zelensky went too far by snubbing Germany, the linchpin power of the European Union.”
“Scholz, Macron nor Le Pen are going to oblige their total debasement.”
The Cipher does not realize it yet, apparently.
Is Gonzalo Lira still free? I have just heard a rumour that he has disappeared. Not Medvedchuk style I hope.
There is no solid information about his whereabouts, only gossips.
im also rooting for him. ive been cheking is youtube and hes off for a few days.
lets hope its just fog of war.
my best wishes to mr. Lira, a very corageous man indeed.
I’d read on tweeter that he will be live at 19.00 today (not sure which time zone) guesting some famous personality, but I’ve forgotten who that was.
So he should be ok if that was true.
I just read that he was supposed to guest George Galloway, but that was canceled without providing any explanation.
There is a post about Mr Lira – please make comments there and stay on topic here. Thanks. Mod.
No word from Gonzalo Lira so far. He should got out of the town earlier. :(
Iurii talks like a kalashnikov , which I’ve always found soothing.
You forgot the /sarc tag!
Unfortunately the videos have been edited very badly, far too aggressively. makes them very uncomfortable and inconvenient to listen to/follow the subtitles.
Gaps between words exist for a reason – cut them all out at your peril!
What the sanctions will accomplish is the lowering of productivity on both sides. The issue for the war is whether the Russian population will put up with a somewhat lower standard of living. Given the way things are developing, I anticipate they well. And then there is the other side. Not buying Russian exports will lower their standard of living also, mainly through cost driven inflation. It remains to be seen how well the NATO nations will hold up when the bills start coming. Because Russia dominating Ukraine is less of a threat for them, their incentive to do it is less.
It would be the ultimate irony if the sanctions placed on Russia produce a Russian political win. Could easily happen.
Russians have access to cheap commodities and fuel. Maybe at the end of the day, they will be bit poorer, but they will have plenty of cheap food, gas for their cars and something to heat their houses. I can’t say that about citizens of EU. Today von der Leyen bragged about destroying Russia’s economy very soon, but this was just lunatic’s wet dream, which doesn’t keep up with reality. She should check herself up with nearby psychiatrist.
“The issue for the war is whether the Russian population will put up with a somewhat lower standard of living”
These things are always conditional on what other countries are enduring. If the downturn impacts the West harder (which is very likely) then the Russian people will understand that a new reality came to stay and will adapt. If the West keeps its standard of consumption, it will be harder to convince them to endure the war hardship.
And the european people?
We are fuming, most of us, don’t want this war. Day by day more are nervous about the outcome, inflation, high prices. As he said, end of the year will be definitory! Then we will see in full scale the crisis.
People in Hungary decided: they dont want war and high prices voted Orban his biggest victory ever his party has a Constitutional majority so he can change the Constitution without a Referendum.
There are many in each country (but not the majority) that believe all this propaganda and spread it, but when reality will hit, they will have other problems.
Even with the Ukrainian refugees: many are not pleased with so many of them tensions will rise in each country that took many refugees, of they will not have a place to work and so on.
But.. the most important thing we are verry worried about prices, hypermarkets lost sales big, first during pandemic and since the start of the SMO in Ukraine extraordinary, people stopped buying, maybe they just buy basics and thats it. So lots of losts for Germany and Frace, as most of the retailers in my country are from these countries. The lost sales big during pandemic when Green Pass was on and now even the ones that were full in the pandemic (ones without gommercial galleris, Lidl, Kayfland, Penny – they are empty now and is Easter time, unbelievable) So people are worried.
As far as I know sales went down everywhere. And retailers lose money and stocks everything. People will vote nationalist governments oif they would be able to: aka elections not stolen, or if they have what to chise from because in some countries all are the same, all politicians you dont actually have a choice, so maybe some revolts? revolutions at one point?
You know what they say: you digged the hole for somebody and you fell into it. Is what they did: trying to isolate Russia and push to change government with a puppet one so that they can loot all Russia and split in a few countries, but this is what they will endure. Only that in the west there will be real revolutions, not a ”Maidan” as they wanted to do in Russia with foreign help and NGOs and so on.
Is coming… tic -tac
@Angeles They already forgot all about the lock downs and do party again around a cup of chocolate with cream. However, the public administration shows cracks of absurdities but still not enough to a majority.
Dont forget the 5G, Digitalization and Smart city surveillance were secretly rolled out in Europe behind people’s back, while all the vax sh.t was going on, and the planned war comes in continuation. This to maintain the sense of emergency in the European population.
Russians by nature and history are capable of enduring great hardships, in fact it is their national heritage.
Americans lose their shit when the cable tv goes out.
We’ve all seen how very little “discomfort” is needed for things to become VERY ugly “over there”. ANY significant disruption to the comfortable American way of life will have significant repercussions, and those in command are very aware of this.
Only 7 odd months ago certain inhabitants of Little England lost their shit and starting panic buying petrol….when there wasn’t even a petrol shortage.
All it took was a couple of hysterical articles spewed out by the mockingbird media and English people literally started physically fighting one another on petrol forecourts.
If these people had to deal with what the people of the Donbass have had to put up with over the last 8 years….
And then there are the toilet roll fights.
regrading standards of living, I can’t help but think of the great G.K.Chesterton
““Comforts that were rare among our forefathers are now multiplied in factories and handed out wholesale; and indeed, nobody nowadays, so long as he is content to go without air, space, quiet, decency and good manners, need be without anything whatever that he wants; or at least a reasonably cheap imitation of it.”
Don’t you worry about the Russians, they survived Jeffrey Sachs.
Europe, on the other hand…..
Things are moving – slowly at first, then quicker
“South of Ukraine, Kharkiv region and Donbass: integration into the Russian education system begins?
Aksyonov: They plan to prepare teachers (of Ukraine and the liberated regions of Donbass) to work according to Russian standards. The program is already being formed, classes for teachers are planned to be held in the Crimea in the summer.
Note that in the DPR and LPR, teachers have been teaching according to Russian standards for many years”
A bizarre video of Elenskyy spouting off about something in his office. He looks to be drugged to the eyeballs. Anyone know what he is saying? And what is the significance of the cockerel object?
“Humanitarian aid from Colombia, as I see it, has arrived in Ukraine.”
“South of Ukraine, Kharkiv region and Donbass: integration into the Russian education system begins?
Just read that the Ukraine will ban all Russian language/history/culture lessons next fall, so I guess that a lot of teachers will have to migrate to the South-East.
Ukrainian language ombudsman proposes to abolish the Russian language in schools
The Ukrainian ombudsman for the protection of the official language, Taras Kremin, has suggested replacing the Russian language in Ukrainian schools with other subjects as of 1 September.
According to him, he said that the Russian language should be replaced with other subjects in schools where it was still taught.
Wow, this is dumb.
Quite apart from the unfairness of it, Russian is far closer to being a world language than Ukrainian!
I should think young people who care about their professional futures and prospects would demand to be taught Russian. Maybe they want the Slavic Ebonics.
the Ukrainian Language is the Slavic Ebonics, a primitive dialect – they have very little in the way of literature that is of world renown,
No problem, Ukrainian can join the other fake languages of the world; Bosnian, Kosovan and Macedonian lol
Any news from Gonzalo Lira?
His last message in Telegram was on Friday…
Yuri Podoliaka is a Ukrainian from the city of Sumi. He was threatened by Ukraine. Currently he lives in Sevastopol.
Below is his A at the Q “What is the difference between a Russian and a Ukrainian?”. — “A Ukrainian will take from the state and will put into his pocket. It is his/her goal, dream and way of thinking. A Russian will think what to do for the state, what is the state’s priority, and will act for the sake of the state rather than for his/her own sake.”
It is very simple and very true. I heard it on this interview with Anton Krasovsky.
OMG we are Ukrainians!!!
(Romanian here, not in this crowd, but still can see the pattern in so many)
Nice, he confirms what I also believed and wrote even here in some comments, that the ”International Comunity” – aka the west as he described in video 2 had only plan A: to change Kremlin regime. Plan A didnt worked. They dont have the plan B but they do the same thing over and over hoping for a different result – a fool will do this.
The coup was demolished some time ago, we shall see what the west is doing, now I saw even UK people started to realise Elensky is not a good leader of he sacrifice his people for nothing, being sure they will be killed. Of course only an extremist will take this route that somehow US benefits: it is because US prefers that VIP’s in Azov to die rather than being taken hostages from Russia? May be. It seems the Ukraine government is realy to fight in US name with Russia till the last Ukrainian. And the world see this now, very very clear. Even people that disagree with Russia’s SMO.
It was nice to see though that in the last three weeks the calls to ”somebody change that men” ” people of Russia revolt take back democracy” are over, they knew they lost the game as the traidors are almost all eliminated or neutralised. And they couldn’t isolate Russia.
Hystory always repeats itself and we (Romanians) always were on the wrong part of history. in WW2 we were with the germans, the HUGE power that seemed to win the war and then they colapsed. We turned weapons in the last 6 months or so, now I am counting to see when exactly we will change the weapons :)))) as our leaders are traidors of their own people so of course will betray the allies as well.
Seeing Romania standing now with US and the so called (by them) ”the civilised world” you can be sure all this ”civilised world” is loosing the game. We are preparing to turn back weapons, but I dont know if we will be able to do it :)) maybe sometime end of 2022, or early 2023? after Eu is shaking from all sides anyway. Will be fun to waths.
Also it is obvious: they dont say it anymore ”The Whole WorldȚȚ they use the term ”civilised world” everywhere trolls in Romania, UK, everywhere you see in the comments in the ”International community” – aka US, UK, EU, Australia… All of them now use ”civilised world” like they follow an order, it is not the ”whole world anymore” but of course the vlogger needed to adress to what Ukrainians hear, but we the rest know that now it is about ”the civilised world’ț so i wonder what the rest of the world has to say about this? That they are uncivilised :).
I dont feel I am in a ”civilised world” with so many bad things happening in Romania and human traffiking and so on and it is not very civilised for germany, italy that are our allies to throw their garbage in our country, they transformed Romania in their garbage for toxic waste after China , Malaysia, Philipines said stop. Very civilised you are to throw your waste in your neighbor yard. And use and loot the resorces from around the world in this neo-colonialism we are living.
They say. we don’t occupy countries, ok because you put puppet regimes and loot it all, empovering the people, keeping them underdeveloped, using their resources and paying peanuts. Very civilised indeed!!! Also to go inforce your ”democratic and trans ideas” in places that dont need it and with guns, sometimes by ”mistale” like in Irak, so doesnt count.
Yet is funny to see ”The Whole World” become ”The civilised World”
Interesting comments. You made me think that it is a good thing Romania sides with the “civilized” world. Given Romania’s track record that’s a bad omen for the ‘civilized’ ones… ha, ha, ha.
l bet not many Romanians are allowed to set foot inside Deveselu and Kogalnicenu, so if something bad suddenly befell them there would not be much “collateral” damage.
Thank you! We don’t have the soveranity in Desevelu, Kogalniceanu and Campia Turzii (airline nato base), US has it! So we civilians don’t step there period. Some NATO Romanian soldiers, but they are under US/NATO comanders.
Some Romanians put foot in Kogalniceanu but that was to steal some gas:
Even if we have 1700 Generals (yes we do) and Russia just 70, our Generals are almost useless as they don’t have combat experience and 0 desire to fix this, as their combat capabilities lies in how much they can influence in order to steal as much, have benefits and generally opress Romanians.
I don’t understand why ”somebody” is not making some ops with that waves, Havana something in these basis, as soldiers are almost all spiked with Pfizer/Moderna so more vulnerable of these things. Some through satelites whatever I am not that technical, but if they keep on false flag ops… they are not fighting in a honorable way, NATO and they never did. I can tell you: many of us hate it: that we donțt have suveranity and that we are a collony.
Yes, Romania siding with ”the civilised world” always hoping to be accepted at one point into the ”civilised rich etc ones” and then always șeft behind, like the one that is always a fiancee never the bride, or always mistress, something like this. Nobody respects us today and our leaders unaware they are just buffons are making such important ‘țstatements” about so many countries, like what they say matters. And we see everywhere that our leaders are shaded by the important ones not because Romania is not important, but because they are as they are. Victor Orban has respect, our leaders just a pat on their head and of course they are allowed to steal from the money Romania borrows.
Does Prince Charles still operate that vast organic dairy farm in Romania?
Yes, but he didn’t visited recently, long time no see, not that we are keen to see him anyway! He is in a nice area, there are, without pollution as in others they burn toxic waste from our friendly nations
Ukraine has sacrificed itself for the New World Order.
What a silly thing to do.
Ukraine is not Ukraine and hasn’t been since the coup. It is a disposable puppet.
Will the real Ukraine please stand up!
Very insightful comments from this man. My biggest worry in all of this is that the west, when it realises it is falling into the trap that it created, (having underestimated Russian preparation) will eventually panic seeing its plans crumble and go full stupid. I hope the Russia China alliance has a plan to dismantle the current system,(which god knows needs to be done) but in not too kinetic a fashion!
As he says ….and we can all see it, the old world is gone whichever way this pans out.
Let us pray that it becomes a better more equal and more caring world. I think that people in the west will have to make do with less though.
It seems that YouTube has suspended Yuri Podolyaka’s account a week ago. I can only find this channel that has reposted some of his video.
This morning the Japanese TV had some story about Shoigu having a massive heart attack and Putin saying it was not a natural heart attack and that he must have been poisoned. I may be taking this out of context, because I don’t stick around to watch lying liars any longer than I have to. I wonder if this is part of Ukraine’s “We’re winning!” story.
Yes and Shoigu’s been replaced by Steven Segal.
Ain’t heard anything for sometime from Russia’s Goodwill Ambassador.
Its just too easy these days to slip a mickey into someones magic dust and wala, suddenly its game over.
“Shoigu has not been seen publicly between March 11 to March 24 2022, when he appeared tired and sick briefly in a video released by Putin. Shoigu’s heart attack happened after a tough accusation by Putin for a complete failure of the invasion of Ukraine, he is undergoing rehabilitation”, Gerashchenko wrote in Newsmax.com
“14 April Daily Star, Russia’s MoD Shoigu is in life threatening condition after a massive heart attack that couldnt have happened naturally. Shoigu is now in intensive care relying of devices but will probably be completely disabled after this.
The massive heart attack happened again after Putin accused him of being a complete idiot for his handling of the Ukraine war.
Twitter Angela, 14 April, Shoigu out of the game. Twenty of his Generals caught with their hook noses too deep down in the Russian public coffers, embezzling $7,6 billion for themselves.
The story came from India times I think. When you listen to the whole thing, at the end they explain that this information came from a Russian businessman living in Israel!
the Russian businessman was apparently – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonid_Nevzlin – not exactly an unbiassed source
“they have no understanding of Russian mentality.”
Ha, ha. That’s what I thought.
I am so sad to think the things I must think and hear the things of this they speak! Shoigu? Can it be true?
We who have lived long enough and those who have looked deeply at history may know that many negotiations and deals made by the top are not known to the public. What has been going on in secret which we have not to know now?
Why did Russia encircle Kiev and then pack up and drive away? Goodwill for diplomacy? Manouver warfare? Now I no longer can believe it. Very sad.
Now the arms dealers are pouring weapons into Kiev. Why? Why? Why? What monsters have betrayed the people? We must demand to know the truth though it melt our very souls….
All the billions in weapons raining down now to Kiev to kill our people and our young men! Shame! And you send a letter! A letter! Who has betrayed our people? Again!?
Russia’s military spokesman gave the explanation about why Kyiv was surrounded for so long. It sounded plausible that they would try to box in the best troops in Kyiv and other cities, so as not to let them go to the Donbass. However, I then thought that soldiers like those sent to the mission around Kyiv were absolute heroes because they were exposing themselves more than others and lacked adequate protection to carry out this military feint. Soldiers who were serving as the “feint” were captured and tortured on video; Putin approved the feint, but certainly not this result. He didn’t know that there were conscripts in the SMO, while we who saw films here of captured soldiers already knew it, since the prisoners looked like obvious conscripts, at least one of whom was a teenager for sure. Was Putin even informed properly about the feint around cities? Since he didn’t know about the conscripts, it’s a good question. About Shoigu, if he was indeed removed, it’s about Putin fixing an error he himself made. He also put the head of the FSB there (or kept him there). Both men did not look like “geniuses” before the war; the recently appointed General will be good, but he doesn’t look ideal either. To be specific, I ‘don’t like’ the way this General smiled when Putin was nominating him. Shoigu would have kept a straight face. What did he smile about! (He’s no butcher as they say…right?)
“What has been going on in secret which we have not to know now?”
You will just lose sleep if you think like that. Many things.
“Now the arms dealers are pouring weapons into Kiev. Why? Why? Why? What monsters have betrayed the people? We must demand to know the truth though it melt our very souls….”
Here and throughout your comment you suggest that the Russian leadership is treasonous. Mistakes can be made without being treasonous, or always “lying” as others say. Need to leave room for mistakes too? I think it is clear that you are against the Russian decision to attack Ukraine.
“…And you send a letter! A letter! Who has betrayed our people? Again!?”
That unsigned letter is without precedent and could be the bluntest of letters. In WWII times, the letters were signed. It’s an unsigned letter warning of “unpredictable consequences” (what besides “war” could that mean?). They didn’t sign it because they think something is wrong with the reader.
I cite one quote from blogger Iurii Podoliaka and one similar quote from FM Lavrov for some analysis:
“This is a battle of the USA and Russia and China for the demolition of the world where anglo saxon countries are the leaders.”
Lavrov (via commenter arkx Brasil) on 04/11/2022:
“Our special military operation is designed to put an end to the reckless expansion and the reckless course toward the total dominance of the US — and the rest of the Western countries under them — in the international arena.”
On the one hand, the “special military operation” is not a “war” because a war is something too big and drastic, so the term “war” was banned for Russian media two or three days after the SMO began (today the New York Times reported that this term is being used now in Russian media). Yet, we have these two quotes above that expand the goal of the SMO incredibly.
I think the agenda pointed to is an overreach. It’s far beyond the scope of the two Russian proposals. It is reasonable to consider the SMO as the military means to achieve the fulfillment of the two Russian proposals. Both Podoliaka and Lavrov, however, are going beyond the goals of the two proposals; arkx Brasil also linked what may be the toughest statement that Putin has made thus far, but which does not go as far as these other two, and is more general and open ended:
Putin (04/12/2022): “What is happening today? The demolition of the system of the unipolar world that took shape after the collapse of the Soviet Union. That’s what’s important!”
The two Russian proposals can be interpreted as achieving this also. This quote shows that the SMO is designed to achieve the fulfillment of the two proposals, and this would also be the reason for why Putin described the “Empire of Lies” when he announced the attack on Ukraine. The main goals of the two proposals can be achieved without achieving what Podoliaka and Lavrov say. At some event, a reporter should ask Lavrov to harmonize his statements with those of others in his govt., or to explain why they are different. The same question could be fairly asked to Putin. If actually the fulfillment of either all or most items in the two proposals is the real goal of the “SMO”, then Podoliaka and Lavrov are right. It could mean then that at some point Russia would demand that there be no American nuclear weapons in Europe (Belgium, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands) or else. I don’t believe Russia would go that far. So, I think Podoliaka’s and Lavrov’s statements are excessive. It’s already “ambitious” to say that Poland and Romania have to remove their advanced NATO weapons, which by itself could entail the disappearance of NATO due to its overexpansion if Russia imposes itself, since it’s hard to imagine that there could be an all-out war for Article 5 (written in 1949). The rest of the proposals’ items could wait for future agreements or negotiations. Another wrong thing about Podoliaka and Lavrov is that they have not been specific enough (Podoliaka indicated he would be more specific in the future).
Putin was specific on what the three key goals of the two proposals were. NBC News reported them: “…that NATO not expand to Ukraine and other ex-Soviet countries, refrain from deploying offensive weapons near Russian borders and roll back deployments to Eastern Europe.”
“Putin says West has ignored Russia’s key demands in Ukraine standoff (nbcnews.com)”
Why being specific? This is not wise. The advantage Russia has over the Empire of Hate and Lies is that they don’t know Russias plans.
Nobody knows this drives them crazy. They donțt know what to expect, nothing is at it seems. They deliver different messages (nobody lies of course but they are not specific) and this is the contrainformation at its best. We now see a masterpiece: how an information war is won by Russia.
If they are specific and act in a very predictable way, ok people will feel more secure, BUT: it will neutralise Russia’s leverage.
In Russia there are still many enemies that wanted to change the regime in order to loot and break the country to give it to the west. Kremlin is fighting on multiple fronts and not with honorable oponents, they can’t be specific :) they need to delude the oponents and push them to make mistakes
I thought about it too. It’s not done. It’s like pussyfooting too much. I see no sign that it works. It looks like a style, indeed, though. They are also purposefully slow in translating things, which is related.
It’s disgusting for the FM to say one specific thing about something so public (a political feint?), the president to say something else but agree with the FM, and the military spokesman to say only what the president normally says. Also, using the name “Special Military Operation” was supposed to accomplish something good. What was it? In Russia, they are disagreeing too. They are beginning to use the word “war” on TV programs now (according to the NYT). These special communications are in no man’s land.
The Covid crisis tested them too. Only the resistance and strength of the Russian people stopped Putin’s government from going overboard like the West did. They were beginning to apply absurdly drastic measures, but the Russian public had had enough. They were wiser than the government. While in the U.S. sports arenas were closed, in Moscow the spectators were watching boxing fights without their mask on. I said to someone, “Look, they are not living in fear!” I can imagine them getting tired of the special communications of the special military operation.

Article 5 does nothing but ask for a talkfest. It has no obligatory sending of troops or anything. Crappiest treaty ever , and all countries accepted it as vassals of the strongest winner or ally of the Capitalist West ie the USA.
If the USA has not gone to war over Georgia, Kurds in Syria/Iraq or Ukraine, believe me they won’t go to war over Romania, Baltics or Poland. Push comes to shove they will not go to war to help the UK ,France ,Germany or Australasia either.
Excellent, thank you for sharing.
Sorry there is no English subtitles in this video published on March 23rd
Are Putin and Russia really isolated ?
Poutine et la Russie sont-ils vraiment « isolés » ? – François Asselineau
i zoomed the video in on panoramic/horizontal level to get clear reading size, he talks very fast so you have to read fast but good info!! 🙏🇱🇺 Regards from South Africa!!
“Reporter Andrei Rudenko named the final number of surrendered Marines of the 36th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – according to his data, out of 1.5 thousand fighters, a little more than 1,300 people laid down their arms. He said that the leadership deliberately sent the fighters to certain death in order to save the senior officers.
“I was one of the first to talk to the servicemen who were breaking through in a column from the Ilyich plant. And the answers were shocking. The direction of the exit, which was called by the barely alive marines, is the village of Zachatovka, this settlement was already in the deep rear of the DPR. And in order to get there, the column had to pass tens of kilometers under the fire of our artillery, ” Rudenko said.
He added that the special forces knew in advance that Kyiv intended to send its soldiers to certain death, so the military was faced with the task not to eliminate those who broke through, but to clamp them down and take them prisoner. Recall that as a result of the assault on the plant named after Ilyich, according to the DPR special forces, the commander of the 36th brigade, Vladimir Baranyuk , was liquidated, as well as up to 50 military personnel, including five senior officers of the brigade management.”
Yep, this sums up my views too. The war in the Ukraine is just a brief sideshow. The real battle is over the dollar as reserve currency. In that battle Russia holds four aces, because they control the critical natural resources.
My friends, this may be the beginning of the end of the Zionist banking system that has controlled the world for the last few hundred years.
Whether in time the China / Russia / Iran ( India ?) axis succeeds or not in creating a multi-polar world, one thing is certain. The world will never be the same. The US will find it more difficult to intimidate unaligned countries into putting the interests of the US above their own. What remains of Ukraine will stand as a testament to the perils of abject subjection to US interests.
Поехали! – They started!
Поехал! – He started!
Поехалa! – She started!
Good knowledge, congrats! Also: Поехало.
The attack on broad front started last night. So, поехали.
First time I hear this man talking. He is a member of the reality based community and he proves me that it is possible to tell the truth. That’s highly important to me.
Dear Andrei and your team. Thank you for all the invaluable work you are doing. Can I remind you that Bitchute has been blocked in Russia (By the Russians) for quite some time. Well before the SMO got underway. I never heard why. Some people speculated that there was a lot of pro Hitler stuff there. I don’t know but none of us in Russia have access to Bitchute. Odysee, Brighteon, Rumble all seem to work fine here.
This is the best news we have had in a long time. Uncle $hmuel just doen’t get it. The Russians, for a few generations, have endured hardships that U$ wussies, including their gay, feminized, lgbtq military, could not even imagine, yet they endured. Another thing that should be pondered is that there has never been a war fought on U$ soil since 1812. Their stupid civil war doesn’t count since they were fighting each other. Since they have never witnessed such destruction as has Russia, they think that all wars will be fought “over there,” but not “over here.” There are so many sites on the net that continually repeat the three most useless words in English, when used together: “Wake Up America.” Its not going to happen.
We won over ourselves. This is the most difficult battle of all battles and proof Americans are the toughest of all countries in the world.
You say we should denazify and demilitarize then we will double-nazify and double-militarize, as no one should tell America what we should be doing, no one!
Ok. Fair enough, if Uncle $hmuel will stop telling every other country what to do.
Can we have 2 txt files with the subtitles for these 2 videos
Someone needs to slow down this video so that English speakers can actually read the Closed Captions.
