Special op to end in days if NATO stops shipping weapons to Ukraine — Medvedev

The special military operation would end in several days if the US and its vassals stop sending weapons to Ukraine, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said Wednesday, answering a question from TASS.

“In NATO, primarily the US and its vassals, stop shipping weapons and munitions to Ukraine, the special military operation would end in several months; and if they stop shipping their weapons now, then the special op will end in mere days,” Medvedev said.

“Actually, any war, even a world war, can stop very fast,” he continued. “Either if a peace treaty is signed or if one does what the US did in 1945, when it used its nuclear weapons and bomber to Japanese cities – Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They have, indeed, ended the war campaign back then, at a cost of lives of almost 300,000 civilians.”

In other news Belarus’ President Lukashenko said Putin promised him that any attack on Belarus would be considered an attack on Russia itself. Lukashenko also pointed out that NATO was quickly building up forces on the border with Belarus in Poland and in the Baltic countries.

“We have a joint group. Part of it is on the western border of Russia. I asked him (the Russian president – TASS) to avoid using part of that group. To keep it in reserve just in case, if something happens. His reply was: ‘I promise you that any attack against or just one step across the border into the Belarusian territory would mean that they attack Russia’,” Lukashenko cited Putin as saying.

Also a French General forecasted the utter failure of the so called “counteroffensive” being attempted by Ukraine. Jean-Bernard Pinatel also said that the ratio of losses in equipment and personnel is 5 to 1 in favor of Russia (at least).

“Ukraine’s counteroffensive is doomed to fail as the Russian military has the edge over its adversary in all respects, Jean-Bernard Pinatel, a retired French general and the owner of the company called LexisNexis Business Information Solutions, said in a video interview provided to TASS.

“I absolutely do not believe in the success of the Ukrainian counteroffensive. The Russians have a significant air superiority. But they also have an advantage on the ground. Even the Ukrainians themselves admit that they fire 4,000 shells a day, while Russia fires 20,000,” said Pinatel, who specializes in Russia and the Middle East.

The general also said that the ratio of losses in equipment and personnel is 5 to 1 in favor of Russia. According to Pinatel, the Kiev regime is severely hampered by its lack of human resources.

“What we are witnessing today is a confrontation between a nuclear power and a country that, of course, is sponsored by the Anglo-Saxons, but which does not have significant technical and human potential,” he said. “And I don’t think that the biggest disadvantage Ukraine faces is so much the amount of military equipment, which, by the way, is not always of high quality, because the West supplies Kiev with outdated equipment. Ukraine’s greatest vulnerability is its people, or rather a lack of them. Its best fighters have long been dead.”

The general said he believes that, provided NATO doesn’t directly step into the conflict, Kiev’s defeat is only a matter of time. The West’s policy of prolonging the Ukrainian conflict “is only leading to more casualties,” Pinatel said.

“Conversations about helping Ukraine until it wins are completely stupid and nonsensical. It will achieve nothing and will only increase the number of deaths among young Ukrainians and Russians,” he said.

However, the US and Europe do not care, the retired French general said, because their main goal is not the victory of Ukraine, but the weakening of Russia.

Johnny’s Commentary

As I’ve said before the war in Ukraine is just the beginning and it’s designed to kill off the Slavic people, Russian, Ukrainian, Serbian etc. You can see that story here: https://dontspeaknews.com/2023/06/15/the-real-origins-of-the-russia-ukraine-war/

That being said it certainly appears we are headed for the next phase of the shooting war. As I reported HERE yesterday, both Russia and Ukraine are accusing the other of getting ready to blow up the Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant. If that happens then NATO is on record saying that it would invoke Article 5 which commits them all to war against Russia. There would be no more proxy war using Ukrainians as the cannon fodder, but rather they would finally be fighting each other directly, NATO troops vs Russian troops of which we’ve already seen small scale skirmishes.

Russia for their part says that if NATO invokes article 5 that they would begin launching nuclear weapons. Why? Because Russia knows and even admits that it can’t defeat NATO in a full blown conventional war without them so I would expect those to be deployed right away. Great Britain has already been looking for Russian subs off of their East Coast (they didn’t tell the public) as they feared Russian retaliation for giving long range missiles to Ukraine.

British news services did NOT carry any information about this search, nor did they even report the vast parts of the ocean closed-off for the intense searches.  The British public was left blissfully unaware.

As I’ve said many times there won’t be any warnings when the missiles start flying towards the US and Europe. The powers that be want maximum death and carnage and they don’t want survivors so I would expect the major population centers and key military bases to be hit in the US. As you can see from the UK the governments of the world don’t give 2 rips about you and me, just themselves and those they deem worthy of survival.

Stay ready guys, this could erupt without warning at any moment. No fear, just stay PRAYED UP and PREPPED UP!

US-backed military once again targets former Pakistani PM Imran Khan

Imran Khan poses the greatest threat to Pakistan’s military monopoly on political power.

Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher

The arrest of former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and leader of the Pakistan Movement for Justice (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, or PTI) caused thousands of Pakistanis to take to the streets and protest. However, Pakistan’s Supreme Court ordered on May 11 his release, offering a significant victory for the onetime leader responsible for bringing Islamabad closer to Moscow and away from US dominance until his removal from power.

On May 9, Khan was detained and arrested for the alleged embezzlement of 50 billion Pakistani rupees ($240 million). This unleashed a wave of violent demonstrations in several cities in the country and threatens to unravel the fragile state.

The current situation is taking place against the background of several military coups because the army continues to play an essential role in the critical decisions of state policy. These internal factors had an even more substantial effect on the situation than the fact that Khan was trying to pursue an independent course in foreign policy, particularly with Moscow, whilst deepening his country’s dependency on Beijing. In addition, his domestic policy is rejected by elite military circles that maintain close ties with Britain and the US.

The former prime minister at first did not depend on any political party, and, in fact, he challenged traditional political and military circles. In Pakistan, there are two older parties: the Pakistan Muslim League and the Pakistan People’s Party, which, apart from the military, have maintained political power.

Khan, a former cricket star, emerged as a “revolutionary” by deciding that Pakistan needed to choose another path and divorce itself from Western dominance.

Pakistani voters protested after Khan was removed from power in a soft coup on 10 April 2022 and continued to support him vehemently. Now, the protesters continue to demonstrate against his targeting. Through imprisonment, Khan would have been prevented from participating in the political struggle because the military had already made its position clear – preserving the status quo, i.e., their own personal interests.

As for the US relationship with Pakistan, the latter is vital for the Americans as it is a state that directly borders Afghanistan and influences what is happening there. In particular, they are interested in and very concerned about the multiple links between the Pakistani military and the Afghan Taliban. It is recalled that Pakistan was even part of the bloc that the Americans had created against the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

Imran Khan brought Islamabad closer to Moscow, and for this reason, the Americans needed him removed. However, due to his immense popularity, the Americans want assurances that he will never return to power so that Pakistan can stay in its orbit of influence. For this reason, the Pakistani military is using every method to keep him out of politics.

Given that Pakistan is at the crossroads between India, China and Iran, the Americans must keep the South Asian country under its control. In addition, Washington wants the Pakistanis to stop cooperating with Russia or limit their association. Effectively, Khan wanted to stop depending on the Americans and sought to develop a relationship with Russia, but he was prevented from doing so.

As for China, it is Pakistan’s traditional “all-time” ally, as the Pakistanis call it. Only on May 10, China delivered two Type 054A/P frigates to Pakistan, meaning that all four warships of this class, first announced in 2018, have been commissioned into the Pakistan Navy. Global Times reported that the program marks the China-Pakistan friendship and the high-level defence cooperation between the two countries.

In fact, the relationship between Pakistan and China is so deep that the latter objected to a recent proposal from India to add the leader of the Pakistan-based terror organisation Jaish-e Mohammed to the UN Security Council’s 1267 ISIL and Al Qaida Sanctions list. It is also recalled that China last year put on hold proposals to blacklist Pakistan-based terrorists Hafiz Talah Saeed, Lashkar-e-Taiba leader Shahid Mahmood, and Lashkar-e-Tayyiba terrorist Sajid Mir under the Al Qaeda Sanctions regime.

Although the Americans will find it difficult to break the Pakistan-China relationship, especially as the East Asian country is one of the few states around the world willing to invest in the financial blackhole that Pakistan has become, it will be an even more difficult task if Khan was in power. His arrest is related to the fact that even though the US-backed Pakistani military removed him from power, there is every chance he could return as Prime Minister if free and fair elections are held, which would be intolerable for Washington.

Khan’s arrest came hours after the military rebuked him for alleging that a senior officer was involved in a plot to assassinate him, something the army has denied. Crucially, criticism of Pakistan’s military is considered a redline as the state apparatus is effectively controlled by it. Khan poses the greatest threat to their political monopoly, which is why his continued persecution should not be considered surprising.

Russian tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus – escalation or legitimate response?

While the decision to send nuclear weapons to Belarus was officially made after the United Kingdom announced it would supply depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime, the actual reasoning might have to do with much more sinister plans by the United States.

Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

On March 25, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that Russia will start deploying its tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus. Construction of designated storage facilities for the weapons is planned to be completed by July 1. The decision to transfer nuclear weapons to Belarus was made after Minsk issued a formal request, essentially mirroring Washington DC’s nuclear sharing agreements with several NATO member states. And while the decision was officially made after the United Kingdom announced it would supply depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime, the actual reasoning might have to do with much more sinister plans by the United States.

Namely, Warsaw and Washington DC have been floating the idea of transferring some of the US nuclear weapons stockpiled in Europe to Poland. The move has been mentioned several times in recent years, including in early October last year, when Polish President Andrzej Duda mentioned it in an interview with Gazeta Polska. The US has nuclear sharing agreements with the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Italy and Turkey, with approximately 100 (mainly air-launched) tactical nuclear weapons deployed in all five countries. Greece also took part in the program, but discontinued its participation in 2001, although it’s widely believed Athens still keeps the necessary storage facilities functional.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko advised against UK plans to deliver depleted uranium munitions to the Kiev regime and warned that Russia would soon supply Belarus with “munitions with real uranium”. However, Putin himself stated that “even outside the context of these events”, Belarus still has legitimate security concerns and that “Alexander Grigoryevich [Lukashenko] has long raised the question of deploying Russian tactical nuclear weapons on the territory of Belarus”. This clearly implies that threats to Minsk transcend the immediate danger of depleted uranium munitions deliveries to the Neo-Nazi junta in Kiev.

“There is nothing unusual in such a decision, as the United States has been doing this for decades. They have long placed their tactical nuclear weapons on the territories of their allies, NATO countries, and in Europe. In six states – the Federal Republic of Germany, Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Greece – well, not in Greece now, but there is still a storage facility,” Putin stressed, further adding: “[Russia and Belarus] will do the same, without violating our international obligations on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons”.

He added that Russia is indeed mirroring the United States in this regard and that it’s not transferring the ownership of its tactical nuclear weapons to Belarus, but that it’s simply deploying them to the country and training the Belarussian military to operate and use them in the case of a wider escalation by the US and NATO. The Russian military has already provided Belarus with the necessary upgrades to be able to deliver tactical nuclear warheads. At least 10 (presumably Belarussian Air Force) jets have been assigned and equipped to carry such weapons, although neither side specified what type of aircraft received the said upgrades.

Belarus operates several types of nuclear-capable fighter jets, including the recently acquired Su-30SM and the Soviet-era MiG-29. In addition to air-launched nuclear weapons, Russia already deploys ground-based assets in Belarus, including the “Iskander” systems capable of launching nuclear-tipped hypersonic and regular cruise missiles. Minsk also operates its own “Iskander” units, meaning that those too could be equipped with tactical nuclear warheads, further bolstering the country’s deterrence capabilities. This is particularly important as Belarus has also been targeted by US/NATO covert/black operations in recent years, including an attempted Maidan-style color revolution in 2020.

“We have handed over to Belarus our well-known and very effective ‘Iskander’ system that can carry [nuclear weapons],” Putin stated, adding: “On April 3, we will start training the crews and on July 1 we will complete the construction of a special storage [facility] for tactical nuclear weapons on the Belarussian territory.”

In addition to the “Iskander”, Belarus still maintains a number of Soviet-era nuclear-capable assets, including a substantial arsenal of “Tochka-U” tactical ballistic missiles. These could serve as a secondary delivery option given their shorter range and inferior accuracy when compared to the “Iskander” which boasts a 500 km range, high precision, extreme maneuverability at every stage of flight, as well as a hypersonic speed estimated to be at least Mach 5.9, although military sources indicate that it can go up to Mach 8.7. This makes the “Iskander” virtually impossible to intercept, as evidenced by its performance during the SMO (special military operation). The system also provides a significant advantage over NATO forces in Eastern Europe.

President Lukashenko strongly indicated that Minsk could host Russian nuclear weapons as soon as NATO implied it could deploy US B61 nuclear bombs to Poland, highlighting that his country’s Soviet-era infrastructure for such weapons remains intact despite US pressure to destroy it during the 1990s. Belarus is home to a growing arsenal of state-of-the-art Russian military units and equipment, including strategic assets such as the S-400 SAM (surface-to-air missile) systems, as well as the advanced Su-35S air superiority fighter jets and MiG-31 interceptors, including the K/I variants capable of deploying the already legendary “Kinzhal” hypersonic missiles, which are also nuclear-capable.

NATO increasing cyberattacks against Russia

Just what we need, more poking of the bear to start a bigger war. NATO and the USA in particular are going to push Russia into launching their hypersonic nukes soon enough. Johnny

Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; geopolitical consultant.

The cyber environment has become a real battlefield in the conflict between Russia and the West. Recently, NATO cyber troops have been escalating their anti-Russian campaign as part of the broader fight against Moscow in the current conflict. As well as in battles of the physical world, the Atlantic alliance also often uses Ukrainians as proxies, with several attacks by Kiev’s hackers having occurred. However, Russia seems to have control over the situation.

The Russian hacker group RaHDit published on its website a report on the attacks that Moscow has been suffering from Western cyber forces. Information was revealed about more than 100 NATO officers who would be involved in attempts to launch cyber-weapons against Russian web domains. According to spokespersons for the group, there is an international network of cyber-agents operating in NATO countries and allied states, but there is an attempt by NATO high-ranking officers to disguise the attacks and make them appear as maneuvers of exclusively Ukrainian responsibility.

The network operates under the central direction of the alliance, which establishes cyberwar bases in countries close to Russia, mainly Poland and the Baltics. In these centers, Ukrainian hackers are trained to carry out the war plans established by NATO, obeying Washington’s orders in the same way as in the battles outside the cyber world. The main proxy organizations involved in such operations are the hacker groups IT Army of Ukraine and Save UA – both formed by Ukrainian cyber soldiers but commanded and financed by Western important officers.

The aim of recruiting Ukrainian hackers, according to RaHDit spokespersons, is to foster a structure of action in which the real architects of the crimes – NATO agents – appear innocent, with only Kiev’s citizens acting on the front lines of the attacks. When Russian investigations are done, Ukrainian hackers are often the easiest ones to discover, with deeper efforts needed in order to find the “real culprits” – the Western officials who mentor and train the Ukrainians. With this, Ukraine seems to be once again subjected by NATO to a role of “proxy” on the battlefield against Russia.

“It is the NATO centers that are really behind the cyberattacks while employees of Ukrainian security forces and community activists act only as a cover (…) [Ukrainian hacker groups] have to create the appearance that Ukrainians are doing it themselves (…) [but NATO has] people behind their backs who show them what they should be doing, who guide them, and they often themselves engage in active activities in cyberspace (…) As for now, it is not Ukraine that is fighting against us in cyberspace but all NATO countries. They have been training Ukrainian specialists for a very long time, and they have established cyber centers in the Baltic and Poland. Ukrainians came to these cyber centers to learn. Now there are being coordinated and managed from these cyber centers”, a RaHDit member told a Russian media outlet on December 29.

While RaHDit’s current focus is on investigating the NATO structure behind Kiev’s hacker army, the group also remains concerned with identifying as many Ukrainian cyber fighters as possible. The day before the publication of data on NATO officers, Russian hackers had also published a new list, with information on more than 70 Ukrainian citizens who are part of the alliance’s cyberwar centers. RaHDit members even wrote on the group’s Telegram channel that there are thousands of other data yet to be revealed, with a continuous movement of hackers joining the anti-Russian campaign in Ukraine and in other parts of the world.  

“In reality, there are far more people who are joining this movement. It is not a thousand, not two thousands, but far more. They are working not just in Ukraine, but from all over the world”, they wrote.

Indeed, these efforts in the cyber world by NATO and its neo-Nazi proxy are normal. Today, cyberspace is recognized by military experts as a regular battleground, with all the world’s armed forces maintaining cyberwar centers. Intelligence operations to obtain data on enemy forces largely depend on the use of cyber weapons, which is why it is normal for this type of situation to occur in a high-intensity conflict like the current one.

In addition, as the Ukrainian forces lose space on the “real” battlefield, with a military scenario absolutely favorable to Moscow, what “remains” for Kiev and its NATO mentors is simply to escalate cybernetic activities, trying to gain some kind of advantage in the conflict, either through the leak of sensitive data, or through sabotage against strategic Russian sites and domains.

Even so, Russia seems to have control over the cyber situation. With the data obtained by hackers, many actions are prepared in order to neutralize the opposing forces. In July, RaDHit members had already published data on more than 2500 hackers linked to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, which made a series of counterintelligence operations possible. The fact that there have been no reports of major damage to Russian cyber infrastructure in recent months, despite NATO efforts, shows that the situation is stable.
