Poland training militants to attack Belarus – newspaper

NATO country proves to be involved in provocations against Russia’s ally.


Lucas Leiroz, journalist, researcher at the Center for Geostrategic Studies, geopolitical consultant.

Once again, the evidence makes it clear that the West wants to involve Belarus in the current conflict. In a report published by The Times it was informed that exiled Belarusian militants are being trained in Polish territory in preparation for a future insurrection in their country. 

According to the newspaper, the “Bypol” group, an extremist dissident militia that actively participated in the attempted color revolution in 2020, is based in the Polish city of Poznan, where an intense military training program is being conducted. Journalists went to the field to interview some of the militiamen and reported that the number of recruits is already “in the hundreds”.

The program would have started many months ago, bringing together “common Belarusians” who want to give a response to President Aleksandr Lukashenko’s “Stalinesque campaign of torture and detention [that] has all but silenced dissent” in Minsk. To add credibility to this narrative, the paper interviewed an exiled woman involved in the training nicknamed “Predator”. The 42-year-old dissident explained that she is the mother of a child who is unaware that she is currently in a military program. The option for combat would apparently have been motivated by the need to “fight for Belarus”.

“My daughter doesn’t know I am here. I told her I was going paintballing (…) []However] I came here today (…) to prepare for the fight for Belarus”, “Predator” told journalists during an interview.

This is a well-known media strategy, widely used by western outlets. The objective is to use an emotionalrhetoric to show the supported side as a victim of oppression and an example of heroism and resilience. But for those who know what really happened in Belarus in 2020, this narrative is nothing more than a weak and meaningless fallacy.

The 2020 mass protests were the result of a Western plan to overthrow Lukashenko’s legitimate government and replace him with pro-Western opposition candidate Svetlana Tikhanovskaya. Belarusian security forces were incisive in neutralizing the Western-sponsored threat, and, as in cases of failed regime change operations, the US regarded Lukashenko’s electoral victory as illegitimate and fraudulent, pointing to Lithuania-based Tikhanovskaya as the real winner.

At the time, the Bypol group was created, formed by several dissident former employees of law enforcement agencies. Bypol engaged in active militia work, physically fighting the security forces. The group alleges the supposed “necessity” to face the government’s “state violence”, receiving financial and logistical support from the western powers for this.

As a result of Lukashenko’s victory, most Bypol’smembers emigrated to neighboring countries hostile to Minsk, such as Poland, Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania and the Czech Republic. This did not stop the group from operating sabotage and real combat missions on Belarusian soil, even carrying out a drone attack on a Russian A-50 radar at Machulishchy air base. However, Belarusian security forces closely monitor the militia’sactivities and have been effective in preventing further damage from being caused.

In practice, Bypol is an ordinary terrorist organization, which acts like any other extremist group in the world, using terror as a political tool and causing harm to ordinary civilians during its illegal raids. But the West has been openly pro-terror in recent years, being publicly involved in financing and supporting terrorist and neo-Nazi groups such as the Ukraine’s Azov, Right Sector and Aidar, which makes it unsurprising that it gives same support for Bypol. In fact, if the terrorists’ targets are NATO’s geopolitical enemies, then the criminals have “carte blanche” for their maneuvers.

The problem is that amidst the current scenario of tensions, any miscalculated act could lead to a serious escalation. Belarus has been the target of repeated terrorist attacks since the beginning of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine. Minsk is involved in a secondary way in the operation, only allowing Russian troops to use its territory to enter the enemy country, without sending soldiers and weapons directly. The Belarusian attitude is legitimate, considering that Belarus and Russia maintain a collective defense treaty within the Union State, and therefore military actions are absolutely integrated.

This means that western provocations against Russia’s ally are likely to be responded to by Moscow itself. And, in the same sense, considering that these are NATO countries that are training, supporting and infiltrating terrorists in Belarus, the eventual joint response of Minsk and Moscow could even be directed against NATO, which would involve the risk of nuclear escalation.

This only makes it even more legitimate for Minsk to receive Russian nuclear weapons on its territory. Minsk is taking pre-preventive action to dissuade hostile countries from realizing their war plans against the Belarusian people in order to avoid further escalation, as the consequences could be catastrophic.

Warsaw escalates tensions by transferring 10 MiG-29 fighter jets to Kiev

Poland deepens servitude to Washington in delusional bid to attain great power status.

Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher

In preparation for the expected Ukrainian spring offensive, Poland announced on May 8 that it had transferred 10 MiG-29 fighter jets to Kiev. Following Kiev’s plea for fighter jets, Poland became the first country to make the pledge and transferred four in April. In this way, it is evident that Poland is becoming a staging ground for providing military aid to Ukraine. Warsaw wants to show the US that it is a faithful partner in serving its hostile policies and actions against Russia.

Warsaw is also pumping Ukraine with weapons and is sending Polish mercenaries to battle on the frontlines. According to Polish media, Warsaw delivered military aid to Kiev worth around 2.2 billion euros as of February 2023. In addition, Poland is developing a military infrastructure for storing NATO equipment, and the US military presence is increasing in the country.

Poland dreams of restoring its status as a great country and a major power in Europe, something it was for a very short period over four hundred years ago. However, Poland’s delusions of grandeur have always been linked with wanting to destroy Russian civilisation. For this reason, throughout Poland’s history, they searched for another power that could help destroy Russia – in the 17th century, it was Lithuania; in other periods, it was Britain, France, and Sweden, and today it is the US.

Each foreign power has suffered defeat each time. Still, the Poles, likely out of frustration that they could never achieve great power status, now believe that the US is their best choice for opposing Russia and elevating its status. Due to this, Poland has become a stronghold of American influence in Europe and a military staging ground in which weapons are delivered to Ukraine.

Poland today serves as the most important logistical centre for the delivery of military aid to the Ukrainians by the West. However, Poland has only become a tool of American policy because Warsaw is a subjective player in these situations. The US does not believe in equitable relationships, except perhaps only with other Anglo powers, and for this reason, Poland has only become a puppet despite their intentions to show the Americans that they are their loyal friends and essential in the NATO bloc.

Poland is one of the most active supporters of Ukraine and one of the largest donors of military equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, even though the Far-Right Kiev regime has a long history of opposing and pressuring the Polish minority in the country. Specifically, Poland has delivered 250 tanks to Kiev and plans to deliver another 60 RT-91 tanks (Poland’s modernised version of the T-72), 14 German Leopard 2 tanks and about 100 Wolverine armoured personnel carriers.

Polish authorities have also handed over Soviet self-propelled artillery units “Gvozdika”, multi-barrel BM-21 “Grad” missile systems (MLRS), anti-aircraft missile systems 9K33 “Osa” and S-125 “Neva”, as well as self-propelled howitzers “Krab”, along with a large amount of ammunition for various types of weapons to Kiev. In addition, Polish authorities intend to deploy infrastructure in the country to maintain American Abrams tanks.

Provocations by Poland is not only reduced to militarily opposing Russia but also involves cheap stunts, such as disrupting Victory Day celebrations. Protesters blocked the path of Russia’s ambassador to Poland on May 9 when he tried to place a wreath at a Warsaw memorial to Soviet soldiers who defeated the Nazis in World War II.

The Polish government was informed in advance of the ambassador’s plan to visit the Red Army cemetery and memorial site but made no effort to ensure his safety so that he could pay his respects.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that the incident demonstrates “the duplicity of Warsaw’s policy in assessing the events of World War II and trying to forget about the role of our nation in saving European countries enslaved by Nazi Germany,” adding that the incident “will not remain without a proper reaction.”

At the same time, Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland said following her meeting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence of Poland, Mariusz Błaszczak, that they “discussed how to continue holding Russia accountable for its illegal and barbaric invasion, including through further sanctions and using frozen Russian assets to pay for the rebuilding of Ukraine.”

Effectively, the pair discussed how they could use frozen Russian assets to finance Ukraine, something which will have considerable repercussions for Canada and Poland, especially when noting that as of the end of 2022, about $330 million of Russian assets were frozen in Canada.

It is demonstrated that Poland is making everything effort to oppose, pressure and antagonise Russia, as it has done for centuries, and this will continue unrelentingly so long as the US emboldens the country.

Poland’s new border fence and “Himars Academy” escalates tensions with Russia

Warsaw continues a policy of servitude to Washington.

Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher

Poland is erecting a wall on Russia’s Kaliningrad exclave, announced its intentions to open a “Himars Academy” for military training, and is allowing the deployment of these American weapons on its territory. These highly provocative actions serve as a confirmation that Poland has aggressive plans to escalate tensions with Moscow.

Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak tweeted on April 18: “The first US-made HIMARS missile systems will reach Poland this year. We want to establish a Himars Academy where training on this type of rocket artillery system will take place.”

Washington considers Poland as nothing more than the first front line in any future confrontation between Russia and NATO in Europe. For this reason, Washington is transforming the country into its main European base, which is why in addition to the Himars system, Warsaw decided to build a fence on the border with Russia, something likely made under US instruction.

Warsaw claims the border fence is needed to stem the flow of illegal immigration after falsely claiming in November 2022 that the Kremlin was planning to facilitate illegal border crossings by Asian and African migrants as part of its “hybrid warfare”. However, this is quite obviously a fallacy since Poland does not face major migratory threats like Europe’s Mediterranean countries.

From a military point of view, the wall will not stop columns of tanks if a conflict broke out. Russians living in Kaliningrad are not defecting to Poland, and at the same time, the wall is not a protection against migrants from Afghanistan and Africa as it is easier to get to Belarus, as occurred during the last migration crisis.

Rather, migration is a ludicrous claim to justify the construction of the wall. Poland aspires to be the main American ally in Europe, which will dictate the geopolitics of the region. Building the wall is for this purpose, even if it is just a mere demonstration that Poland is making some kind of effort against Russia. However, the US does not have allies, and instead only has vassals.

Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Kamiński announced that Poland has begun construction of a “state-of-the-art” wall along its 199-kilometre land border with Russia, which will be completed by the end of the year and includes 3,000 surveillance cameras.

In typical cold Russian humour, the governor of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov, offered Poland construction materials for the wall, promising to give “even a small discount.”

Poland will place American Himars missile systems near the border with Kaliningrad, while at the same time the country plans to open the Himars Academy for the army to learn how to handle these systems. Himars are not a defensive type of weapon, and therefore the purchase of these systems is an aggressive gesture against Russia.

Warsaw has already bought 20 systems for $414 million, but the US Congress has already agreed to deliver about 500 more highly mobile systems, worth about $10 billion. This is in line with Poland’s aggressive plan to completely isolate the Kaliningrad region.

Alarmingly, the installation of the Himars system near Kaliningrad poses a danger to civilian aircraft flying into the exclave, while on the other hand, it is primarily more dangerous for Poland as Russia will only militarise Kaliningrad even further. Given that Russia has a lot more capabilities than Poland and the US does not have infinite resources to dedicate to the country, leaders in Warsaw have only made their country’s defences even more vulnerable as Moscow will certainly respond to this latest provocation.

Adding to its provocative crescendo, Poland, along with Germany and a few other EU countries, are pushing for sanctions on Russian nuclear energy as the bloc looks for new ways to try and hurt Moscow’s finances because the current embargoes have utterly failed to deter the special military operation in Ukraine.

According to CNBC, Poland and the Baltic States also called for sanctions on Russia’s civil nuclear energy activities, diamond imports, and on oil imports on the Druzhba pipeline.

Although the EU has imposed 10 sanction packages on Russia since the war began, another round of sanctions is being prepared, but again, this is unlikely to deter Russia and will once again backfire on the bloc. Although it is likely that the new set of sanctions would feature nuclear energy, a spokesperson for the European Commission refused to comment on ongoing confidential discussions.

“The preparations for the 11th package are ongoing,” the spokesperson said, “to have it all done and ready it takes time.”

In this way, it is evident that Poland is desperately positioning itself to be the US’ main European military base, even though Russia does not pose a threat to the country. Rather, by highly militarising the border, establishing a Himars Academy, and pushing for more sanctions, Poland is fully emersed in an anti-Russia hysteria that is being transformed into policy.

Tensions between Poland and Belarus on the rise

Despite it, Lukashenko’s offer to act as a mediator in Ukrainian conflict should be taken seriously by Washington.

Uriel Araujo, researcher with a focus on international and ethnic conflicts

The Polish authorities in Warsaw announced they have closed border checkpoints in Bobrowniki in response to the fact that a Minsk’s court sentenced a Polish activist to 8 years in jail over charges pertaining to inciting hate. The ruling took place after months of mass protests in Belarus, and Poland believes the sentence is politically motivated. Other checkpoints had already been closed over alleged security concerns. Minsk has described the Polish measures as “catastrophic”, claiming it could “lead to a collapse on both sides of the border”. It will increase the load on the remaining two checkpoints, where there already are very long lines.

I have written before on the very real migration crisis which Europe has been facing and on how the role Belarus plays on it is exaggerated to hypocritically demonize that state. There have been, in any case, a number of tragic deaths at the Poland-Belarus border in the context of such a crisis.

Two weeks ago, Polish authorities busted a criminal organization involved in a huge smuggling operation. This is a police matter, but, in the context of a political crisis, the fact can certainly be explored to add fuel to the fire.

The main border concern here however pertains to the conflict. Belarus forces are “ready to fulfill any tasks, including the most difficult ones if we have to”, according to Vadim Lukashevich, deputy commander of the Special Operations Forces of Belarus. Troops outside the city of Brest run drills lust week near the 38th Separate Guards Air Assault Brigade. These exercises took place 50 kilometers from Ukraine and just two miles (four kilometers) from the border with Poland, a EU and NATO member. Belarus has been hosting a number of Russian troops, but President Alexander Lukashenko has stated he will not send his own forces to Ukraine. It is estimated his country possesses about 70,000 troops.

Although some journalists often describe Belarus as a “Russian puppet state”, the truth is that both countries’ relationship is much more complex and nuanced. In any case, Minsk has historically cultivated close bilateral relations with Moscow. It stands in a complicated position, “sandwiched” between republics such as Latvia, Lithuania and Ukraine itself – all of them hostile to Russia and to itself.  In July 2022 Lukashenko claimed Kiev had tried to attack his country, with the missiles supposedly launched having being neutralized just in time by his armed forces. Ukraine could in fact benefit from draggin Belarus into the conflict, in the hope that this would force a direct Western intervention – however, it could also backfire, with disastrous results, in case the West does not act as expected.

The conflict in Ukraine has been part of a Western proxy war against Russia and, in spite of historical Polish-Ukrainian disagreements (worsened by post-Maidan Ukrainian ultranationalism), Warsaw has been a strong supporter of Kiev against Moscow. Even before the current conflict, both neighboring nations actively opposed the Russian-German Nord Stream 2 project (which in fact could have avoided today’s energy crisis in Europe). Moreover, Poland has antagonized Germany over the same issue, while also pressuring Berlin to send tanks to Ukraine. This is part of Poland’s American-backed quest for regional leadership, as Washington seems to have become “fed up” with its German partner over the Nord Stream issue.

To make things more complicated, Poland and Ukraine are near a confederation, which can only increase even more the risk of bringing NATO’s direct involvement into the latter.

Although Minsk’s defensive exercises have been described by Western media as aggressive provocations, President Lukashenko has urged his American counterpart to go to Minsk, Belarus, in a joint meeting with himself and Russian President Vladimir Putin to “end the war”. It remains to be seen how long Belarus can manage to refrain from directly taking part into the current conflict, amid an escalation of tensions.

During Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Washington in December 2022, he and Biden took part in a joint press conference. During it, Biden said more potent weapons will not be sent to Ukraine because it “would have a prospect of breaking up NATO”. In addition, the American leader remarked that his Atlantic allies are “not looking to go to war with Russia. They’re not looking for a third world war.”

Ukrainian and Western actions for the last couple of years have been characterized by dangerous moves (such as crossing red lines) and provocations. While the US profits in a number of ways from making the Ukrainian conflict perpetual and from the resulting European energy crisis, it has no intention to escalate things into a world war, as Biden aforementioned remarks make clear.

The problem with escalations of tensions, as I wrote before, is that they may have quite unintended and unpredictable consequences – and those in turn can always spiral out of control – as both world wars have taught us. Before reaching a point of no return, Washington should establish good diplomacy, exercise restraint and stop its dual containment policy, which dangerously aims at “containing” both Moscow and Beijing at the same time.

In light of that, Lukashenko’s invitation should be taken seriously. Unfortunately, there is no indication it will be.

Poland claims Germany will face international isolation if it does not send tanks to Ukraine

Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher

Germany contends with increasing pressure and scrutiny from its so-called European Union and NATO allies to deliver Leopard tanks to Ukraine. However, a fake narrative is also being constructed that Berlin is an international pariah, so-much-so, that it could even face international isolation for not sending the tanks.

“Germany will be in international isolation if it does not allow Leopard tanks to be sent to Ukraine,” Polish Vice Chancellor Arkadiusz Mularczyk said to Polskie Radio. “It must be understood that Germany, by not accepting the shipment of tanks to Ukraine, will find itself in international isolation. If it continues with this position, its position will be very weak.”

This is of course a ridiculous notion since it is actually Poland, and the wider European Union, who are in the global minority of sending weapons to Ukraine and imposing sanctions on Russia.

The expression of willingness by German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock on January 22 to approve the shipment of Leopard tanks to Ukraine from other countries is the result of major pressure, including from Poland and the Baltic republics, but especially from the UK and the US.

Polish Deputy Foreign Minister Marcin Przydacz stressed Warsaw’s call for German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to take a position on the supply of Leopard tanks to Ukraine.

“In the legal-formal sense the position of the foreign minister should be sufficient, but taking into account how the discussion inside Germany looks, we would probably have more confidence that the declaration of consent would be considered positive, if this position were also presented by Chancellor Scholz,” Przydacz told Polskie Radio.

Earlier, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, in an interview to Polsat, stated that Warsaw is ready to send German Leopard tanks to Ukraine without permission from Berlin. He stressed that Poland is ready to form a coalition for the supply of tanks to Ukraine without the participation of Germany if the latter does not approve the shipment of its tanks to Kiev.

On January 21, German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius declared that NATO countries and their allies failed to reach a consensus on the supply of German tanks to Kiev but that Berlin will study its possibility.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously warned that any arms shipment to Kiev will become a legitimate target for the Russian military. At the same time, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov commented that the attempts to saturate Ukraine with weapons will negatively impact the situation and negotiations.

Senior NATO officials met on January 20 at a German military base to discuss — unsuccessfully — a possible new shipment of heavy weapons to Kiev, an issue that has become increasingly acrimonious as time progresses.

For his part, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin called on his allies to deepen their support for Ukraine, stressing that “this is not a moment to slow down.”

“It’s time to dig deeper. The Ukrainian people are watching us. The Kremlin is watching us. And history is watching us. So we won’t let up. And we won’t waver in our determination to help Ukraine defend itself from Russia’s imperial aggression,” he added.

However, it is recalled that Washington’s request comes at a time when Germany is refusing to send Leopard tanks to Kiev. Berlin, for its part, has said it will not send tanks unless the US also sends its M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine.

Germany is facing an immense economic and energy crisis and does not want problems with Russia to deepen. If Germany sends tanks to Ukraine, the country would be even more involved, a prospect it does not want since Russia is a fellow European country that it must deal with, unlike the US which has an entire ocean of separation.

Although Germany has the power to veto any decision to export its Leopard tanks, it has sought a conditional agreement with the US, Reuters reported. According to CNN, the controversy between the two countries occurs in the midst of a much broader debate about whether or not it is a good idea to equip Ukraine with more sophisticated and powerful weapons.

The positions of both countries have generated all kinds of reactions. For example, we recall that Morawiecki asserted that Poland could deliver its Leopard tanks to Ukraine without waiting for German permission.

“We have agreed with our Ukrainian friends and also with our Western European partners that we will hand over these tanks together. The permit is already a secondary issue, we will get it quickly or else we will act as we see fit,” he said to Polsat.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, indicated that the intentions of several Western countries to send Ukraine more weapons are with the aim of “raising the stakes” and will only escalate the conflict.

In this sense, the reluctance to increase weapon deliveries to Ukraine could be interpreted as a sign that Germany wants to re-establish some of the dialogue it lost with Moscow after the departure of Angela Merkel. This is obviously something that Washington categorically does not want to occur.  Although the US can count on other European Union countries to arm Ukraine, particularly Poland, no country besides France has the political, industrial, and military power of Germany.

Western Ukraine to be Annexed by Poland, Putin Proposes to Dissolve Treaties Between Russia and E.U. PLUS Saudi Arabia to Dump Petrodollar?

war destruction in ukrainian city

Here is summary of some of what I consider to be today’s top geopolitical stories. We shall begin at Davos where the Saudi Arabian finance minister is saying they will accept other currencies besides the dollar for oil and gas! Is this the final nail in the coffin of the petrodollar?

Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed Al-Jadaan said on Tuesday that the kingdom is open to trading in currencies aside from the US dollar in order to “improve trade.” 

“There are no issues with discussing how we settle our trade arrangements, whether it is in the US dollar, whether it is the euro, whether it is the Saudi riyal,” Jadaan told Bloomberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. 

Why it matters: Jadaan’s comments are the latest indication some Middle Eastern states are moving away from the US dollar — albeit slightly. Last year, The Wall Street Journal reported that Saudi Arabia was considering pricing oil sales to China in the yuan. Source

Next we move onto Russia and President Putin’s proposal to the State Duma (congress) to dissolve all treaties Russia has with the EU! This is a huge move and signals the END of any diplomacy between Russia and the EU.

Russian President Vladimir Putin this morning transmitted to the State Duma (Congress) a Bill to Terminate all Treaties between the Russian Federation and the Council of Europe.

The document was published on the Duma’s electronic database on Tuesday.

“Due to the termination of the Russian Federation’s membership in the Council of Europe, starting on March 16, 2022, [it is proposed] to consider as invalid with regards to the Russian Federation the following international agreements: the May 5, 1949 Statute of the Council of Europe, <…> the November 4, 1950 Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, <…> the January 27, 1977 European Convention on the Suppression of Terrorism,” the document said.

In total, it is proposed to denounce 21 documents. Source

Up next is a story that’s been circulating as a RUMOR for almost a year, since the Russian SMO began last February. It appears that Poland is about to expand it’s territory at the expense of it’s neighbor. Like I said this has been a story that’s been circulating since the war in Ukraine began and the Western media has dismissed it (until now) as Russian propaganda.

Last May…

From November 2022

The director of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Mr. Sergey Naryshkin, told Russian journalists that individual countries are considering various options to help Ukraine in its war against Russia. Naryshkin said options for annexing parts of Ukraine were being considered. Poland is one of the stalwarts, according to Naryshkin, who can annex western parts of Ukraine.

According to Naryshkin, Poland can annex parts of the Lviv, Ternopil, and Ivano-Frankivsk regions. Poland’s goal, Naryshkin said, is to compensate for aid that Western partners have so far refused Ukraine. In this way, Ukraine [the western parts] will receive not only NATO protection, but also economic stability. Source

So as you can see it wasn’t a big shock to me when Hal Turner put out this story earlier today.

In an utterly stunning development, most of Western Ukraine is now being shown on Poland Television as having been ANNEXED to Poland!

The people of Poland are being shown their country is now expanded to include western Ukraine.

Here. Look:

Like I’ve been saying, I don’t know why this was such a shock for Hal but I’ve been watching this unfold for almost a year. Maybe it helps justify NATO expanding the war as Russia continues it’s attacks into Western Ukraine or it’s just part of the unfolding NWO plan. The Nazis wanted Ukraine for its farmland and it appears that they still do. Remember the Nazis didn’t lose WW2, the Germans did. The Nazis just went underground for a time while they infiltrated everything.

Last but not least is Russia making the announcement of up to a 1.5 million man mobilization of their military to help in their war against NATO and it’s proxy Ukraine.

In late December the Russian defense ministry in a televised briefing which had President Putin in attendance unveiled it plans to significantly boost its armed forces strength.

Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu presented a plan to take the roughly one million strong armed forces to a level of 1.5 million personnel in the near-term, or at least the coming years. He indicated he expects that this bolstering in forces would include some 695,000 volunteer contract soldiers.

On Tuesday, the Kremlin gave confirmation to the plan unveiled in that December 21 meeting, and explained the rationale for the ramping up in personnel numbers, describing that the “proxy war” nature of the Ukraine conflict has made the move necessary.

“The proxy war includes elements of indirect participation in military action, elements of economic war, financial war, lawfare,” Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said. Source

“It’s Either Now or Never” for Putin, Declare War by May 9th or Else

I came across this article today and I found it to be a very interesting take on why Putin may be forced to declare war on ALL Nazis, not just the ones he sees in Ukraine but also NATO itself. From Warnews247, I have translated it from Greek for your convenience.

The time of crisis is approaching for Putin, who will either announce a General Mobilization and a declaration of war in Ukraine on May 9, or he will be overtaken by developments and will be involved in a long war of attrition.

It is more than obvious that Russia is now fighting against NATO, so the “special military operation” has ceased to exist.

The WSJ has already confirmed yesterday’s WarNews247 report today: Poland has delivered 240 modernized T-72M1 tanks to Ukraine. How long will Russia be able to fight with only so few units on Ukrainian soil?

If the border is not closed and the flow of weapons does not stop, there will be a risk of attacks even on territories already occupied by Moscow. Not to mention that Crimea and Moscow themselves will be in danger as Ukraine receives strategic weapons, HIMARS, ATACMS, etc.

If the Transnistrian front opens, then Moscow has a serious problem as the Russian troops are not sure that they will arrive in Tiraspol on time.

There is another danger for Russia, NATO is preparing to enter Ukraine, probably in the summer. If the Ukrainian war of attrition continues to pay off and the Russian Army weakens, then it is very likely that NATO forces will enter Ukraine from late May to early June.

The deployment of 8,000 troops from Eastern Europe alone to Eastern Europe presupposes a “NATO operation”. At the same time, NATO is planning exercises in Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania and the North Sea. Therefore there will be great military development.

Putin knows NATO outguns him on CONVENTIONAL weapons…

On Friday, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace warned that the Russian president could use the Victory Day parade to increase the threat of Nazism.

“I will not be surprised; he is probably going to say that ‘we are now at war with the Nazis of the world and we must mobilize the Russian people en masse.’

Putin, having failed in almost all of his goals, may seek to consolidate what he has… and simply be a kind of cancer development within the country.

“We have to help the Ukrainians get off the cliff effectively and maintain the momentum of the counterattack.”

Although Wallace said there was no indication that Putin was planning the announcement, he said previous talks had shown it was possible.

We have seen many statements from Putin that “this is a proxy war” – and “Nazis are everywhere”, basically, “it’s not just in Ukraine, NATO is full. of the Nazis “.

“I think he will try to get away from his ‘special business,'” Wallace told LBC Radio.

“Lay the ground so he can say ‘look, this is now a war against the Nazis, and what I need is more people.’ “I need more Russians for cannon fodder”.

Poland has sent at least 240 tanks to Ukraine, enough for two tank brigades, Polish officials said, confirming yesterday’s WarNews247 report.

The question is how the Poles achieved this and what exactly the Russians did. We are not talking about 1-2 tanks but about 240!

The T-72 tanks were donated along with self-propelled grenades, BM-21 Grad rocket launchers and other Soviet weapons from Poland’s stockpile, which has become Ukraine’s main benefactor within the European Union.

Collectively, the large arms donation, described by four Polish officials who briefed on the issue, shows the accelerating pace at which NATO allies, including the United States, are helping to equip Ukraine.

The tanks were sent by roadblocks in recent weeks as Russia resumed operations far from Kyiv to the east. Poland has also provided Ukraine with unmanned surveillance aircraft and dozens of armored combat vehicles, as well as fuel to maintain the country’s military vehicles.

“Ukraine has received more from Poland than it has asked for,” said a senior official.

The United States is giving 250 Abrams tanks to Poland to help replace the tanks donated by Warsaw, while the United Kingdom has offered to send its own tanks to Poland.

8,000 British troops will be deployed in Eastern Europe
Some 8,000 British troops will take part in a “demonstration of solidarity and strength” with other NATO troops in Eastern Europe this summer as the invasion of Ukraine continues.

Dozens of tanks and 120 armored vehicles will be deployed this summer from Finland to Skopje as part of a long-running program that was strengthened after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February.

“Europe’s security has never been so important,” British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said in a statement. “As part of these exercises, our troops will join forces with NATO allies and partners and the Joint Expeditionary Force in a show of solidarity and strength that is one of the largest joint troop deployments since the Cold War.”

The Joint Expeditionary Force (JEF) is a coalition of the armed forces of the United Kingdom and eight partner countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.

British troops were deployed to Finland this week to take part in an exercise that “will improve the ability of British and Finnish forces to work side by side with the JEF, discouraging Russian attack on Scandinavia and the Baltic states”.

In May, more British troops will be deployed along the border between Estonia and Latvia alongside 18,000 NATO troops, including French and Danes who are part of the British-led NATO “Enhanced Advanced Presence”.

“The United Kingdom is making a significant contribution to Europe’s defense and to preventing a Russian attack. “The range of British military exercises is fundamental to both .

There are also reports of 2 British SAS troops that have been captured by the Russians in Ukraine. The Russians INSIST these are not mercenaries but regular British troops. I’m sure more will be released on that in the near future.

WAR UPDATE! Poland is Preparing for a Russian Attack on Rzeszow

Clouds of war are sweeping Warsaw as Poland begins military preparations to repel a possible military attack by Russia.

The revelation was made by Ukraine’s ambassador to the country, Andriy Deshchytsia, who spoke of “Polish defense preparations against a possible Russian invasion.”

Twenty-four hours ago, there was intense military mobility on the Belarus-Poland-Ukraine border as armored personnel carriers and tanks were spotted.

NATO sources say Russian and Belarusian forces are likely to deploy on the Polish-Ukrainian border to close all military cargo routes to Kyiv.

However, Poland is intensively preparing for a possible conflict with Russia.

Earlier, it was reported that the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, had signed the new law on “Defense of the Fatherland”. The law stipulates that Poland’s military spending will increase from 2.2% of GDP in 2022 to 3% in 2023.

The country’s army is also doubling and from 150,000 soldiers will reach 300,000 in the coming years.

This fact is also confirmed by the Polish media. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will urge opposition parties to support amendments to the Polish constitution that would allow for a massive increase in military spending following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

But the news comes as the White House confirms that President Biden will discuss with his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda the proposal to send a NATO peacekeeping force to Ukraine.

This fact means that the proposal has not left the table.

At the same time, a senior NATO official warned earlier that Belarus was “preparing the environment to justify a Belarusian attack on Ukraine and the imminent development of Russian nuclear weapons in Belarus.”

The White House then announced that the Russian government was “looking” for options for possible cyber attacks on critical US infrastructure.
