A forewarning new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin hit out at the looming deliveries of Western-made tanks to Ukraine during a ceremony to mark the 80th Anniversary of victory at the Battle of Stalingrad, warning that Moscow’s response to the threat will span far beyond armored vehicles, says he assessed and warned: “Unbelievable, but true – we are once again threatened with German Leopard tanks, with crosses on their hull...And once again seeking to battle Russia in Ukraine with the help of Hitler’s followers, the Banderites...Those seeking to defeat Russia on the battlefield apparently do not realize that a modern war with Russia would be entirely different for them...We’re not sending our tanks to their borders...Yet we have something to respond with, and it would not be limited to armor use only, everyone must realize that”.
In quick response to the dire warning issued to the socialist Western colonial powers by President Putin, this report notes, German Secretary of State Steffen Hebestreit, who is both the Federal Government Spokesperson and Head of the Press and Information Office of the German Federal Government, and reports directly to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, stated: “The federal government of Germany, of course, took note of the words of the Russian president...But these deliveries are support, not participation in the war...And this, of course, is completely known to the Russian president”—a statement that follows the German newspaper of record Deutsche Welle, in their article “Is Germany Becoming A 'Warring Party' In Ukraine?”, warning: “The legal concept of a "warring party" originates from the international law of the 19th and early 20th centuries…Becoming a party to a conflict hinges either on a formal declaration of war, or direct participation in specific combat operations....Putting boots on the ground would make Germany a warring party, and providing intelligence for military operations or battle training for soldiers is considered a gray area...But weapons deliveries are seen as unproblematic”—all of which has now been joined by the British newspaper of record The Times reporting: “German officials are open to theories that the sabotage of the Nord Stream undersea pipelines was carried out by a Western nation with the aim of blaming it on Russia”.
In a further severing of all Russian ties with the socialist Western colonial powers, this report continues, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko told reporters this morning: “I would like to remind you that the Council of Europe, according to Article 1 of its Statute, was created ‘to achieve a greater unity’ of European nations...Western efforts turned it into something opposite...It makes no sense to return to an organization of this kind”—after which, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov most factually observed: “The West, which achieved its prosperity largely through centuries of robbery and exploitation of developing countries, is trying to maintain its global dominance, hoping, as before, to solve problems of its own development and maintain their economies at the expense of others...The crimes of the colonizers have no time limit and forever deprive Western elites of the right to claim any moral leadership...Especially since the colonial instincts have not disappeared...To this end, the West continues to hinder the process of democratization of international relations and aggressively imposes on the world majority a neocolonial American-centric order, which, as they say, must be based on rules that they themselves invent and apply according to the 'I do what I want' principle”.
In response to Western defense analysts assessing that Russia is preparing to launch a major new offensive, this report details, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky stated yesterday: “I believe that it has already started or not fully…We will see that in the nearest weeks”—while President Zelensky awaits a major Russian offensive, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) for the first time announced this morning the destruction of the Norwegian anti-aircraft missile system NASAMS just given to Ukraine—without citing any names or facts, the leftist New York Times, in their just published propaganda screed “Soaring Death Toll Gives Grim Insight Into Russian Tactic”, comically claims: “The number of Russian troops killed and wounded in Ukraine is approaching 200,000, a stark symbol of just how badly President Vladimir V. Putin’s invasion has gone”—is a wishful thinking comical claim that stands opposed to factual open source intelligence obtained using extracts from mortuaries, documents from funeral homes and information from the exchange of data between various units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine showing Ukraine losses are over 400,000—and as to why President Zelensky keeps sending hundreds-of-thousands of ill-trained soldiers to their certain death against vastly superior Russian military forces, American journalist Tony Cox, in his just released article “George Soros Is Either Prophetic Or Pulls A Lot Of Strings”, notes: “George Soros is either stunningly prescient or frighteningly influential when it comes to determining who will need to do all the bleeding and dying that he deems necessary to bring about a desirable “new world order”...Consider the Hungarian-born billionaire’s essay on the future of NATO: “The United States would not be called upon to act as the policeman of the world...When it acts, it would act in conjunction with others...Incidentally, the combination of manpower from Eastern Europe with the technical capabilities of NATO would greatly enhance the military potential of the partnership because it would reduce the risk of body bags for NATO countries, which is the main constraint on their willingness to act...This is a viable alternative to the looming world disorder””.
During an interview yesterday, this report notes, America’s top spy chief CIA Director William Burns stated: “Putin, I think, is betting right now that he can make time work for him...The key is going to be on the battlefield in the next six months, it seems to us”—but CIA Director Burns failed to mention that “seems to us” referred to the socialist-globalist Council on Foreign Relations think tank, whose Foreign Affairs magazine, that gives marching orders to socialist American elites, had just published its propaganda screed “What Ukraine Needs To Liberate Crimea A Credible Military Threat Might Be Enough”, wherein it absurdly claimed: “The next six months will witness a great deal of human tragedy...Ukraine’s armed forces will face harsh battlefield conditions, and Ukrainian civilians will continue to endure daily Russian attacks...Meanwhile, Russia’s underequipped and poorly led troops will suffer thousands of casualties, destroying the country’s remaining fighting capability...With the help of newly promised Western tanks and other weapons, Ukraine’s armed forces will also liberate more territory in the east and south of the country, making it possible to imagine an eventual Ukrainian campaign to retake Crimea”.
While the Council on Foreign Relations gives marching orders to those like CIA Director Burns, this report continues, the Pentagon relies on its own United States government funded RAND Corporation think tank for its marching orders, that last week published its study “Avoiding a Long War: U.S. Policy and the Trajectory of the Russia-Ukraine Conflict”, wherein it warned: “The costs and risks of a long war in Ukraine are significant and outweigh the possible benefits of such a trajectory for the United States...The consequences of a long war—ranging from persistent elevated escalation risks to economic damage—far outweigh the possible benefits...Since avoiding a long war is the highest priority after minimizing escalation risks, the United States should take steps that make an end to the conflict over the medium term more likely”—and is a study now joined by the news: “Ukraine’s plans to seize Crimea from Russia are unlikely to succeed in the near future, lawmakers in the US House Armed Services Committee were told at a classified meeting with the Defense Department, according to Politico...The outlet reports that it spoke to four people who disclosed details from the meeting but wished to remain anonymous...Although the sources did not explain what had led defense officials to their assessment, they stated that the main assertion was that Ukraine does not have the capability to drive Russian forces out of the peninsula...Nor do they expect that situation to change anytime soon”.
As to how separated from reality the Council on Foreign Relations socialist-globalist idiots truly are, this report notes, last month it saw their Foreign Affairs magazine publishing its fantasy article “The Sanctions On Russia Are Working”—in knowing the difference between fantasy and reality, however, this morning it saw Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki factually proclaiming: “What catches your eye: Russia this year and next will develop faster than Germany…And this despite the sanctions”—a factual proclamation that joins the just published Western economic articles “Russia’s Economy Forecast To Outperform U.S. Within Two Years” and “Russia’s Economy Is Now Forecast To Grow Faster Than Germany’s And Britain’s In 2023. How Is That Possible?”—and in the just published Western economic article “Russia's Economic Future - Semiconductors, Arms, And More”, sees it revealing: “Russia’s importation of circuits has nearly doubled in 2022. That means the sanctions are not only a complete bust and have not resulted in even hindering Russian capabilities whatsoever, but in fact they have done Russia a massive favor by giving Russia the impetus and incentive to completely reorient its supply chain of critical infrastructure technologies to the much more reliable partners of the East”.
Among those knowing the significance of the just published Western geopolitical article “Ukraine Is One Of The Most Corrupt Countries in Europe. The War With Russia Hasn't Changed That”, this report concludes, is world-renowned American war correspondent Chris Hedges, who, in his just released open letter “Ukraine, The War That Went Wrong”, assessed and warns:
NATO support for the war in Ukraine, designed to degrade the Russian military and drive Vladimir Putin from power, is not going according to plan. The new sophisticated military hardware won't help.
In desperation, the empire pumps ever greater sums into its war machine.
The plan to reshape Europe and the global balance of power by degrading Russia is turning out to resemble the failed plan to reshape the Middle East. It is fueling a global food crisis and devastating Europe with near double-digit inflation. It is exposing the impotency, once again, of the United States, and the bankruptcy of its ruling oligarchs.
As a counterweight to the United States, nations such as China, Russia, India, Brazil and Iran are severing themselves from the tyranny of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, a move that will trigger economic and social catastrophe in the United States. Washington is giving Ukraine ever more sophisticated weapons systems and billions upon billions in aid in a futile bid to save Ukraine but, more importantly, to save itself.
Empires in terminal decline leap from one military fiasco to the next.
The war in Ukraine, another bungled attempt to reassert U.S. global hegemony, fits this pattern. The danger is that the more dire things look, the more the U.S. will escalate the conflict, potentially provoking open confrontation with Russia.
If Russia carries out retaliatory attacks on supply and training bases in neighboring NATO countries, or uses tactical nuclear weapons, NATO will almost certainly respond by attacking Russian forces.
We will have ignited World War III, which could result in a nuclear holocaust.
