Ukrainian neo-Nazi regime bans Russian Orthodox Church

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

After years of illegal persecution, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Kiev lawmakers to draft a law banning the Russian Orthodox Church from Ukrainian territory. The justification would be the “necessity” to ban institutions linked to Russia due to the current conflict. With this, once again the Ukrainian government shows that it does not prioritize popular interests, considering that Orthodoxy is the majority religion of the Ukrainian people.

The new Ukrainian measure comes amid the recent initiative to extinguish all Russian organizations active on Ukrainian territory. Previously, companies and associations linked to Russian citizens had already been outlawed. Now, the focus is on attacking religious institutions. In addition to calling on lawmakers to approve a law to prohibit the Moscow Patriarchate’s activities in Ukraine, Zelensky also signed a Decree ordering the Security Council to impose personal sanctions against representatives of Russian religious groups, which will target all the clergy of the Orthodox Church.

In his statement on the matter, Zelensky said that Kiev cannot allow Russia to “build an empire” and “weaken Ukraine from within”, nor to “manipulate” Ukrainian citizens in favor of the so-called “Russian aggression”. In other words, Zelensky asserts that he wants to end Russian-Ukrainian ties and prevent the continuity of cultural and religious heritage between the two countries.

Zelensky’s argument is absolutely fallacious. In fact, the Ukrainian Orthodox Church is part of the Moscow Patriarchate, but this is a consequence of the historical formation of that region. Ukraine, Belarus and Russia were for centuries a single empire, not different states, with the fragmentation of the region being a post-Soviet political phenomenon. The distribution of the canonical territories of the Church does not necessarily follow the laws of the legal borders of the National States, since the borders are constantly changed as a result of political events, while in the Church the changes are not so frequent.

The Ukrainian Orthodox Church has always had broad administrative autonomy, and there has never been any kind of political imposition by the Moscow Patriarchate on the local faithful. There is no data to corroborate Zelensky’s claim that Russia is building an empire to “weaken Ukraine from within”, this rhetoric being just an attempt to disguise the indisputable fact that the Kiev regime is promoting religious persecution against the majority faith of its own people.

However, this is not really surprising. Since 2014, the Orthodox Church has been persecuted in Ukraine. The genocide in Donbass included since its beginning the massacre of Orthodox Christians linked to Russian traditions, as well as the bombing of churches, monasteries, and the assassination of clergymen in the Eastern oblasts. The situation worsened in 2019, when, after an anti-canonical maneuver financed by NATO, a Ukrainian ultranationalist schism that had been formed in the 1990s came to be “recognized” by the Patriarchate of Constantinople, and then the Kiev regime began a wave of support for this sect, considering it a kind of “Ukrainian national church” to the detriment of the real Orthodox Church – which is linked to Moscow.

Since then, the Ukrainian state has carried out various crimes against Orthodoxy, including using police force to illegally confiscate properties of the Moscow Patriarchate in Ukraine and give them to the schismatic nationalists. It is important to mention that the nationalist ideology of this schism is so strong that in religious rituals it is even common to venerate Ukrainian national leaders as Christian saints, including the Nazi agent Stepan Bandera – which is why this “church” receives wide support from the neo-Nazi regime and the West.

In this sense, what is happening now is not something actually “new”, but the formalization and officialization of a persecutory practice that was already becoming common in the recent years. At first, the Church was persecuted mainly in Donbass, illegally. Now, the State will be able to carry out operations against Orthodoxy throughout the entire national territory – and in full accordance with the legislation of the neo-Nazi government.

This is just one more step in the project of anti-Russian cultural genocide. After banning literature, music and language, now they ban religion. In fact, Ukraine’s de-russification campaign can only be stopped with the success of Moscow’s special military operation. Kiev is determined to serve the Western interest in removing any ties between Russia and Ukraine, even if this is not in the benefit of the local people, considering that even among ethnic Ukrainians the Orthodox Church is the majority religion. Kiev’s plan is to replace the legitimate, traditional Orthodox Church followed by the majority with the Western-backed ultranationalist schismatic sect.

Germany will not send Patriot missile systems to Ukraine despite Polish hopes

Ahmed Adel, Cairo-based geopolitics and political economy researcher

Germany will not agree to deploy Patriot air defence missile systems to Ukraine despite insistence from Poland. Policymakers in Warsaw are aware of this fact, but this does not stop large elements of the Polish establishment and political class from trying to enforce this.

German Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht recently announced an agreement with her Polish counterpart to allow German Eurofighter war jets to patrol Polish airspace and deploy Patriot air defence systems in the country. Later, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Chairman of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS) Jaroslaw Kaczynski, and Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Mariusz Blaszczak came up with the idea of ​​deploying the German Patriot air defence systems in Ukraine instead of Poland.

Although Warsaw initially accepted Berlin’s offer for Patriot systems, following the recent missile strike, claimed by the West to have killed two men after hitting Polish territory, suggestions have been made to deliver the systems to Ukraine instead.

“After further missile attacks [by Russia], I have asked the [German] side to transfer and deploy the proposed Patriot batteries along the western border [of Ukraine]. This will allow to protect [Ukraine] from further casualties and blackout and enhance security along our eastern border,” the Polish Defence Minister tweeted.

Blaszczak said in an earlier tweet that he would propose to his German counterpart “to deploy this system close to the border with Ukraine.”

Despite this audacious idea, it is unlikely that Germany will deploy Patriot missile systems in Ukraine instead of Poland. The fact that Germany will not supply Patriot systems to Ukraine is justified by a number of immediate factors, such as the Ukrainian military not being trained in how to use the Patriot systems as they only know Soviet-made weapons and air defence systems, such as the S-300. Ukraine has never operated a Patriot system and it would take half a year of training to learn its functions – and only at an elementary level.

It is very unlikely that Berlin will deploy Patriot systems in Ukraine as it will deepen its participation, and the whole of NATO, in the war, something which could cross the redline given by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Germany is unwilling to go into direct conflict with Russia and would rather focus on economic matters, and thus finding a resolution to the war in Ukraine is of higher priority.

In addition, Germany will not give up its Patriot systems to Ukraine because they do not want to lose this weapon. If German Patriot systems enter Ukraine, there is a very high probability that they will be destroyed by Russian artillery fire or airstrikes.

Russia previously sent a note to NATO countries because of their weapon shipments to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any shipment of weapons to Ukraine would become the target of Russian strikes. The Russian Foreign Ministry also warned NATO countries that they are “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. Presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, for his part, said that the supply of weapons from the West to Ukraine does not contribute to the success of negotiations between Moscow and Kiev, and will instead have a negative impact.

According to Jaroslaw Adamowski, Defense News’ Poland correspondent, the latest development with Berlin has exposed differences within the country’s ruling Law and Justice party. He highlighted that Polish President Andrzej Duda, who was re-elected in 2020 with the party’s support, tweeted on November 25, that if Berlin “does not agree to deliver the batteries to Ukraine, then we must accept this defence here [in Poland].”

Adamowski believes that Duda’s statement is a signal that some decision-makers in Warsaw are willing to reach an understanding with Germany.

This is necessary because Poland’s current proposal would force Germany to cross Russia’s redline. Any German Patriot system in Ukraine would involve German troops operating the launchers on the battlefield as Ukrainian personnel simply do not have the skills. Although the Germans have supported Kiev with weapons and military equipment, like all other NATO member states, Berlin has not officially deployed its armed forces for direct involvement in the conflict, and unlikely will despite Warsaw’s attempts of coercion.

Ukrainian First Lady wants to sacrifice well-being of her own people to prolong war

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

Once again, Ukrainian leaders have shown disdain for their own people. According to First Lady Elena Zelenskaya, wife of the Ukrainian president, 90% of Ukrainians are ready to live without electricity and heat for years in order to continue the war against Russia. Indeed, this type of narrative has become common among Ukrainian, American and European politicians, who want to foment conflict at a safe distance from the frontline, while the military and the people suffer the consequences of irresponsible belligerence.

In an interview with the BBC, Volodymyr Zelensky’s wife promised to “endure” despite all difficulties. According to her, her people is willing to continue fighting against the Russians and will not conform until victory is finally achieved. She claims that constant power shortages and heating problems will not be a problem, despite the coming of the harsh Ukrainian winter.

Elena says that 90% of Ukrainians are “ready” to live for “two to three years” without power and heat, adding that “We are ready to endure this (…) We’ve had so many terrible challenges, seen so many victims, so much destruction, that blackouts are not the worst thing to happen to us (…) You know, it is easy to run a marathon when you know how many kilometers there are (…) Sometimes it can be very difficult. But there are some new emotions that help us to hold on”.

Interestingly, Elena said these words the day after air raid alarms sounded across the entire Ukrainian territory. On November 23, Russian artillery attacked infrastructure targets in cities such as Kiev, Lvov, Kharkov, Odessa, Dnepr, Nikolayev, among others, leaving the vast majority of Ukrainian citizens without electricity. Three Ukrainian nuclear power plants were disconnected from the electricity grid, in addition to several interruptions in the power supply of some thermoelectric and hydroelectric plants.

The attacks come amid Russia’s new strategy of managing the conflict by inflicting damage on Ukrainian infrastructure. Measures in this direction have been taken since there was a change in the command of the special military operation, with General Sergey Surovikin taking control of the troops in October. Since this change in command, the Russian operation has acquired the characteristics of an anti-terrorist operation – Gen. Surovikin is experienced in counterterrorism, having previously defeated ISIS in Syria. The Ukrainian State acts through terror and uses its military apparatus to hit civilian targets, so Russian forces try to neutralize the Ukrainian operational capacity through the partial destruction of its infrastructure, thus avoiding the deterioration of trench warfare and infantry confrontation.

A negative side effect of these attacks on infrastructure, however, is that the civilian population suffers the consequences of the energy shortages. In theory, the Ukrainian government should consider this prudently and take the only possible measures to immediately stop the conflict and restore energy normality: negotiate with Moscow and accept the peace conditions imposed by the Russians. However, as we can see in Elena’s words, peace is not a possibility for the Ukrainian neo-Nazi regime, which will continue to fight even if it brings more suffering to civilians.

Indeed, Elena’s words are absolutely banal. There is no way to claim that 90% of Ukrainians are “ready” to endure this kind of suffering. There is no survey that confirms this data. It is just a frivolous statement made to a Western media outlet with the aim of moving readers and public opinion in favor of Kiev. Using emotional rhetoric has been a joint tactic of the Ukrainian government and Western media since the start of the Russian operation – hypocritically, however, the difficulties of the Ukrainian people, who want an end to the conflict regardless of which side wins, is never considered.

The western media points to the Zelensky family as a “family of heroes”, which makes no sense. Elena and her children are protected, safe, moving between different countries and away from the frontline. The Ukrainian president himself, according to various reports, is not even in Kiev. There are investigations that point out that he is staying somewhere in Poland or close to the border, in safe areas, although he often goes to Kiev for official events. Netizens have also recently emphasized the suspicious fact that Zelensky often records live videos in brightly lit rooms, even during periods of power outage in Ukraine.

So, to sum it up, the Zelensky family is safe, without any suffering, but they want the people to bear all the consequences of a prolonged war just to serve the interests of the West. The Ukrainian military should become aware of this and stop serving as a proxy in a conflict that does not benefit the Ukrainian people.

Kiev continues to commit war crimes against Russians

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

War crimes and human rights violations are commonplace in Kiev’s praxis. However, there are particular cases of cruelty and sadism that shock the whole world even more. In a video that recently began circulating on the internet, Ukrainian agents cowardly shot more than ten surrendered Russian soldiers. Disarmed and taken prisoner, the Russians had no chance of defense and offered no risk to the Ukrainian troops, having been murdered in an absolutely unnecessary and criminal way.

There is still no very precise information about the exact location of the murder, but it certainly took place somewhere in Makeyevka, a settlement in the Lugansk People’s Republic that was recently taken by Ukrainian troops. The video went viral and sparked international attention. Moscow has launched an investigation into the circumstances of the crime. Currently, the Russian Investigative Committee is maintaining an active team of experts to scrutinize the incident.

Commenting on the case, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu stated that the episode reveals the “savage essence” of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi regime. He also emphasized how the massacre of unarmed prisoners has become a common practice among Ukrainian military.

“Zelensky and his henchmen will have to answer before the court of history, the peoples of Russia and Ukraine for every tortured and executed prisoner of war (…) The published new video evidence of the mass massacre of unarmed Russian prisoners of war by Ukrainian soldiers confirms the savage essence of the current Kiev regime led by Zelensky and those who protect and support it (…) The brutal murder of Russian prisoners of war is not the first and only such war crime, but common practice among the Ukrainian Armed Forces, actively supported by the Kiev regime, and not noticed at point-blank range by its Western patrons”, he said during a press conference.

Russian diplomats also requested the participation of the UN in the investigation process. The call was immediately supported by some officials of the organization, who pointed out the need to investigate illegal actions committed by either side in the conflict. UN spokesman Farhan Haq, for example, said: “We have called for all human rights violations by all sides in this conflict to be fully investigated and for there to be accountable”. Also, a letter was sent by Russian officials to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres about the topic – which has not been responded yet.

As expected, some netizens and pro-Western activists tried to spread the narrative that the video was fake. However, such was the gravity of the situation that even major Western newspapers had to admit Ukrainian guilt in the case. On November 20, The New York Times published an article stating that studies comparing images on the internet with satellite data prove the authenticity of the information and point to the location of Makeyevka’s settlement.

In the text there is also the opinion of a medical expert denying the unsubstantiated allegations that the Russians soldiers in the video were not killed. Dr. Rohini Haar, medical adviser at Physicians for Human Rights, said: “It looks like most of them were shot in the head (…) There are pools of blood. That indicates that they were just left there dead. There appears to have been no effort to pick them up or help them”.

The report concludes with the statement that the images of the assassination “offer a rare look into one gruesome moment among many in the war, but do not show how or why the Russian soldiers were killed”.

It is curious to note the role played by The New York Times with regard to Ukrainian crimes. As one of the most respected American media outlets worldwide, the newspaper uses its power whenever possible to spread pro-Ukrainian speeches. However, it also works in the opposite direction. In situations where Ukrainian brutality is very serious and its guilt evident, the NYT accuses Kiev and admits that Ukrainian neo-Nazis commit crimes. This happened not only in the murder of the Russians in Makeyevka, but also in the case of the terrorist attack that killed Daria Dugina. The newspaper admitted that Kiev was responsible for the attack, even citing US intelligence’s sources.

The aim of these NYT articles is simple: blame Kiev when it is impossible to deny that the Ukrainians committed a crime, thus making a “damage control” in which only the proxies are blamed, while the US is “absolved”. The newspaper acts as an “excuser” for Americans, acquitting them in situations where Ukrainian offences are undisguised.

However, this kind of attitude cannot be accepted. As Shoigu asserted, the event in Makeyevka was not an exception, but just one of the episodes of violence that have become common practice among Ukrainian military. Kiev has been committing war crimes since 2014, not as a side effect of combat situations, but as an official guideline.

In several videos on the Internet, it is possible to see Ukrainian soldiers and mercenaries admitting that they kill all Russian prisoners and civilians who “collaborated” with Russian forces. There are also public images of torture against such “collaborators”. Kiev does not do this as an “accident”, but as official policy. And the US and NATO also bear responsibility for this, as they send the weapons with which Russian prisoners are executed.

The NYT’s “damage control” must be rejected. If the results of the UN and Moscow investigations point to Ukrainian responsibility, Kiev must be found guilty along with the states and organizations that finance its crimes, which includes Washington and the entire Atlantic alliance.

Kiev regime accuses Western companies of delivering 75% of components for Iranian drones

Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

Despite widespread support coming from the political West, the Kiev regime never seems to be happy, no matter how much money, resources or other forms of support it is set to receive. The latest claim that the Neo-Nazi junta is making is that at least 75% of the Iranian drones’ components are made in the United States, European Union, Japan, and other vassals/satellite states of the political West. According to the Kiev regime sources, the parts that were identified by the Neo-Nazi junta’s military intelligence were allegedly produced by Western companies. The regime claims that the findings were supposedly verified by the Kiev-based Independent Anti-Corruption Commission (NAKO), Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported.

Allegedly, Western-made components include guidance systems, engines and parts of the control surfaces used to steer the drones. NAKO claims the information was acquired by examining several downed Shahed-136 loitering munitions (known as “Geranium 2” in Russian service), as well as at least one Mohajer-6 drone that was supposedly “hacked mid-flight and landed intact.” The report states that the identified components include Japanese-made servomotors, manufactured by Tonegawa-Seiko Co. and German- and US-made electronics developed by Munich-based Infineon Technologies AG and Arizona-based Microchip Technology Inc. Both companies are considered some of the leading microchip manufacturers. Other components also include telescopic infrared lenses that are reportedly identical to Israeli ones made by the Jerusalem-based Ophir Optronics Solutions Ltd.

According to the report, the majority of the aforementioned components are not under sanctions or export controls and can be acquired online. The WSJ claims that officials in the US Military Industrial Complex are saying that, following the Kiev regime’s accusations, the US Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security launched an investigation and is trying to determine how Western-made components ended up in Iranian drones. Reportedly, the Defense Ministry of Israel is also investigating the issue. NAKO made the allegations on the same day when Washington DC and Israel accused Tehran of being responsible for the attack on an Israeli-owned oil tanker off the coast of Oman.

For its part, Iran claims that the drones in question were delivered to Russia months before Moscow launched its counteroffensive against NATO’s crawling aggression in Eastern Europe. In early November, Tehran even scheduled a meeting with the Kiev regime military officials to review their claims regarding the drones, but the Neo-Nazi junta canceled it at the last minute, allegedly under pressure from the US and Germany. Soon after, during yet another pompous public address, the Kiev regime frontman Volodymyr Zelensky stated that “Iran must be punished” for selling weapons to Russia.

Security officials from the political West have “expressed concern” that Tehran’s rapidly expanding unmanned aircraft industry is a “greater immediate threat than the country’s nuclear program.” This also includes the Iranian drones’ possible export success. In October, Iranian Head Adviser for Military Affairs, Major General Rahim Safavi, stated that at least two dozen countries expressed interest in acquiring Iranian attack drones, reportedly including Armenia, Algeria, Serbia, Tajikistan and Venezuela. Major General Safavi also said that the Middle Eastern country currently produces approximately 80% of its defense equipment locally. According to Iranian sources, this also includes Iran’s own domestically-built hypersonic weapons.

Since September, numerous sources reported that Iran emerged as an important auxiliary arms supplier for Russia. The evidence that Iranian drones are being used by Russia is quite strong, although it’s unclear if Moscow acquired the UAVs directly from Tehran or if they’re being made domestically, under license. The deal reportedly includes the Shahed-136 loitering munitions, as well as higher-end drones, such as the Mohajer-6. Some reports indicate that it’s not unlikely top-end Iranian drones such as the Shahed-191 stealth unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) also might be used by the Russian military.

The extent of Moscow’s reliance on Iranian drones is still limited, albeit it has had tactically significant results. Still, determining their long-term impact on Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine is nearly impossible at this point. This is also in part because Russia is using a plethora of its own domestically-built armed drones and loitering munitions/kamikaze drones, particularly the deadly ZALA “Lancet”. On the other hand, the detrimental effect that Iranian-made drones have had on the Kiev regime forces is wholly undeniable.

The low-cost drones have dramatically depleted the Neo-Nazi junta’s air defenses. The situation on the ground suggests that the Kiev regime forces are virtually defenseless against Russian and Iranian drones. This is further reinforced by battlefield footage showing the Neo-Nazi junta troops desperately trying to shoot down these drones, including with small arms fire. All the while, their key military units and infrastructure are being targeted with impunity, as they have no ways to prevent drone strikes. This also explains why the Kiev regime is so desperate to accuse Iran and others of its failures (one of many).

New US B61-12 Nuclear Bombs Deployed in Europe: What Will Russia Do? “Much Worse than the Cold War”

The full interview with Vladimir Kozin, a Russian expert at the Political-Military Studies Center, was made by Jean Toschi Marazzani Visconti at the Russia Today headquarters in Moscow.

Vladimir Kozin denounces the fact that the United States after tearing up the INF Treaty is deploying intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe close to Russia, in addition to the new B61-12 nuclear bombs. Regarding these bombs, he declares:

“The B61-12s are already being sent to Europe, contrary to what was announced by Politico that they will arrive in December. We have information that the bombs already arrived because a specific aircraft such as the US F-35A fighter has already been delivered to NATO member countries. Even to Finland, which has not yet become a full member of NATO but is awaiting ratification. Finland has requested 65 F-35s capable of using nuclear weapons. And recently rumors have come from Helsinki that they would like to have US nuclear weapons on Finnish soil, as Germany has them, Belgium has them like Holland has them, and also Italy and Turkey. So, Europe is becoming a nuclear powder keg”.

Vladimir Kozin calls the current situation “much worse than it was during the Cold War, much deadlier and more dangerous”.

He, therefore, warns that

if our territory is attacked with nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction, such as chemical or biological, bacteriological and toxic weapons, as well as nuclear, we will respond“.

When asked whether Russia will strike US nuclear bases in Europe, he replies:

Yes, that’s for sure. If we are attacked.” Kozin calls all this “madness”.

He warns that, if it comes to a nuclear war, there will be no winners or losers, everyone will lose“.

Kiev regime missiles hitting Poland – incompetence or false flag?

Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

On November 15 at approximately 3:40 PM CET (Central European Time) at least one missile hit the village of Przewodow in Poland, close to its border with Ukraine. The Western mainstream propaganda machine was quick to start blaming Moscow. A senior US intelligence official even told the Associated Press news agency that “a Russian missile has killed two people in NATO member Poland.” Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called an urgent meeting to discuss the incident, while the Polish Foreign Ministry issued a statement claiming that a “Russian-produced rocket fell on the village of Przewodow at 3:40 PM local time, near the border with Ukraine.”

Still, as soon as the footage of the missile wreckage was shown, it became clear that the weapon in question was fired by the Kiev regime forces. Multiple US officials admitted this was the case. According to the AP, “key questions around the circumstances of the missile launch remained amid the confusion caused by a blistering series of Russian airstrikes across the nearby border in Ukraine, none larger than who fired it. Russia denied any involvement in the Poland blast. Three U.S. officials said preliminary assessments suggested the missile was fired by Ukrainian forces at an incoming Russian one amid the crushing salvo against Ukraine’s electrical infrastructure Tuesday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.”

The statement clearly contradicts the initial claim that the missile was Russian. Even the Polish government, which can be described as anything but sympathetic to Russia, issued a rather ambiguous press release, mentioning that the missile was “Russian-made” instead of just Russian. Most of the Kiev regime’s arsenal, particularly its surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems are Soviet/Russian-made and were inherited from the USSR. In addition, US President Joe Biden himself commented that it was unlikely the missile was fired by the Russian military.

And indeed, the location of the incident is nowhere near the engagement range of the system which can fire the missile. Preliminary reports and the footage acquired by various sources indicate that it was most likely fired from an older iteration of the Soviet-era S-300 SAM system. The Kiev regime forces operate several versions, but the vast majority belong to the S-300P/PS/PT series. The missile in question was most likely 5V55K, with a maximum engagement range of approximately 45 km. Modernized versions of the post-Soviet era were never deployed in Ukraine, while the closest Russian air defense units are at least 150-200 km away, in Belarus, and operate much more advanced systems such as the S-400.

In addition, it makes no sense for the Russian forces to fire a surface-to-air missile at a time when their long-range missiles are targeting Kiev regime’s strategic assets. On the other hand, it does for the Neo-Nazi junta forces, as their air defenses would certainly have the motivation to try and shoot down incoming Russian cruise missiles. Still, this didn’t prevent the Kiev regime foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba from claiming that “Russia now promotes a conspiracy theory that it was allegedly a missile of Ukrainian air defense that fell on the Polish territory. Which is not true. No one should buy Russian propaganda or amplify its messages. This lesson should have been long learned since the downing of MH17.”

On the other hand, Polish President Andrzej Duda urged the public to “remain calm” and issued on Wednesday a statement claiming that a missile was likely a Russian-made weapon fired by a Ukrainian air defense system. “We currently have no evidence that the missile was fired by the Russian side,” he said.

He also said that the Polish military and other state services such as the police, firefighters and border guards raised readiness, adding that “the military is increasing the monitoring of national airspace as investigators are still working to establish the causes of the explosion.” Duda also stated that “there are no indications that the incident would be repeated.”

And yet, the Kiev regime is adamant that anyone claiming this wasn’t fired by Russian forces is a “conspiracy theorist”, which obviously also includes the presidents of the US and Poland. “Hitting NATO territory with missiles… This is a Russian missile attack on collective security! This is a really significant escalation. Action is needed,” Zelensky was fuming during his Tuesday night video address. He claimed that it’s “only a matter of time before Russian terror goes further.” At best, the claims are indicative of the futile attempts to justify the Kiev regime’s incompetence. At worst, they imply that the Neo-Nazi junta is desperate to get NATO directly involved in the crisis.

The same could be true for certain Polish military and government services, as the implications that the much-touted “Patriot” batteries stationed along the border failed to intercept the incoming missiles mean that this either calls into question the system’s capabilities or indicates complicity.

In any case, regardless if the incident was accidental or a possible false flag aimed at escalating the conflict, the perpetrators are quite obviously unaware of the potentially cataclysmic consequences of their actions. Whatever interest they may have in seeing World War Three happen will fade into oblivion the moment strategic thermonuclear weapons start flying.

FTX was a MASSIVE MONEY LAUNDERING OPERATION with Ties to the “Pandemic”

This is so lawless and blatant it’s hard to believe but you can bet even more will be coming out soon. First up here is my video on the subject.

Next up is an article from the 2nd Smartest Guy in the World blog on Substack.

The story of the scam that was FTX is going to be epic when discovery takes place for all of the upcoming trials.

In the meantime, here are some of the latest facts about this crypto Ponzi exchange:

There is a lot more to this story, and it intersects with all of the usual Cult players, from BlackRock to the CIA to the WEF and various “nonprofit” slush funds, et al.

I have been warning for a long time now to stay the hell away from all centralized exchanges, and never ever leave your wealth parked with them. If your blockchain assets are not decentralized and not held by you, then you are missing the entire point and purpose of crypto.

How allegedly sophisticated hedge funds and investors at this stage of the game keep falling for these centralized crypto scams is truly baffling.

However, what is not surprising in the least is that the Democrat party is one giant grifting operation along with their totally illegitimate Federal government waging a full spectrum soft war on We the People.

One day it’s the DEATHVAX™, another day it’s a gargantuan crypto scam.

These people want you broke and dead.

Do NOT comply.

Edit: PSYOP-UKRAINE-INVASION was was a project to induce hyperinflation, take the focus off of the waning “pandemic” and launder all kinds of black ops money back to Washington, D.C. also involved FTX; to wit:

Political West using Ukraine to probe, discredit Russian military

Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

After Moscow was forced to intervene in Ukraine and launch its counteroffensive against NATO aggression, the political West got an unprecedented opportunity to probe the Russian military, test and observe its capabilities. All of this provides invaluable insight into the doctrine of the Eurasian giant’s armed forces, which would help NATO optimize its military power to match Russian capabilities. Naturally, this is nothing out of the ordinary in comparison to any other conflict in known history. However, both sides are working on misleading the other by either concealing their actual military strategy and doctrine or providing false information which could give them both tactical and strategic advantages in the future.

For its part, NATO is providing the Kiev regime with unprecedented ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance) capabilities, which has been of prime importance for its forces. Without them, the Neo-Nazi junta troops would’ve had a much harder time against the Russian military. What’s more, NATO expected Russia to play all its cards (short of direct confrontation with the belligerent alliance) in tackling this issue, particularly by using its extensive experience and capabilities in electronic warfare. In doing so, Moscow would’ve gotten several months of key advantages over the Kiev regime forces, but it would also provide NATO with crucial data on how this spectrum of its battlefield capabilities worked. This would then be used by the belligerent alliance to gain an important insight and create counters, possibly tipping the strategic balance of power to its advantage.

It’s precisely this scenario that Russia is trying to avoid, which is why it decided to show only a fraction of its capabilities. This is certainly affecting the performance of the Russian military, but since the High Command sees the intervention against the Kiev regime forces as a local operation, this is considered a fair trade-off. Simply, letting NATO gain too much knowledge of the Russian military strategy and doctrine would be a much bigger problem in the long-term. What’s more, NATO’s overreliance on its ISR advantage might as well create a false sense of security and push its military planners into thinking that Russia doesn’t have counters to these capabilities. However, in a possible confrontation, Russia would certainly destroy much of NATO’s ISR assets, leaving the belligerent alliance with much less battlefield information to work with than it currently has access to.

Still, the present situation is providing NATO with a better opportunity to hurt Russia than engaging in a direct clash ever could. Apart from using the Kiev regime forces as cannon fodder, the political West is also conducting a full-spectrum war against Moscow, involving economic and financial sanctions, incessant information warfare, cyber operations, etc. The aim is to make Russia’s life as hard as it could possibly be, with hopes of eventually turning it into a giant North Korea. The end goal is clear – a coup which would bring a more “cooperative” government to power in Moscow. And this prospect isn’t even in the realm of conspiracy theories anymore as several high-ranking US officials said so themselves, including the US President Joe Biden.

At present, the Ukraine crisis is slowly entering a new phase. While the mainstream propaganda machine is portraying the Kiev regime forces as “making spectacular advances, liberating many towns and villages, and forcing Russian forces to retreat,” the political West is trying to bring the Kiev regime to the negotiating table and buy some more time before the winter season gets worse, giving Russia a significant strategic advantage as the European Union struggles with energy prices and supplies.

By maintaining the image of Neo-Nazi junta troops supposedly “winning” against the Russian military, the political West is trying to convince its populace that financing the Kiev regime is justified, despite the economic and financial fallout. For its part, Brussels is doing everything it can to reduce gas consumption as it can neither afford additional US LNG shipments, nor does it have the necessary storage capacity. The alternative – buying more Russian natural gas – is considered “geopolitically sensitive”.

In addition to conducting the economic siege of Russia, the political West also needs to find ways to continue supporting the ever-cash-hungry Kiev regime. The fallout of these policies has been affecting Western and other global economies for months, resulting in ever-growing unrest and frustration among hundreds of millions around the world, particularly in the EU, whose member states are now bearing the brunt of the suicidal anti-Russian policies.

The detached policymakers in the political West think that this strategy is working, while ignoring the consequences for their own citizens. Dissent is being suppressed by accusing anyone who questions these policies of being “pro-Russian”. Worse yet, refusing to openly support the Neo-Nazi junta in Kiev is now a mortal sin, regardless if the person in question is a public figure or a regular citizen.

Ukraine Would be “Just a Warmup” for Washington – US Strategic Command Head

According to a US official, the Ukrainian tragedy appears to be just a “warmup” in the face of challenges Washington will see in the near future. US Navy Admiral Charles Richard, head of US Strategic Command, recently stated that his country has been preparing for prolonged conflicts with Russia and China.

Since 2018, Moscow and Beijing have played a central role in American international strategy, being seen as threats to the US-controlled world order. In this sense, major confrontations are expected, with the current conflict in Eastern Europe being a mere initial stage of this period of tensions.

Richard explains that the US would be entering a “great power competition”, in which the disputes with its two biggest geopolitical rivals would become intense. For him, Russia and China are the leaders in a process of overthrowing the American project for the post-Cold War world – and Washington seems really willing to take drastic measures to prevent the Chinese and Russian plans from materializing.

As head of the US nuclear arsenal, Richard analyzes the current global situation with concern and seeks realistic solutions to problems. The commander claims that the US is about to be “tested” in a very serious way. He believes that in the face of new dangers the quality of US military forces will not even matter, as there will simply not be enough resources to carry out US involvement in these conflicts. Therefore, Richard defends a rapid and effective reformulation of the American defense and security strategy, which adapts the country to the new geopolitical circumstances.

“We have to do some rapid, fundamental change in the way we approach the defense of this nation (…) This Ukraine crisis that we’re in right now, this is just the warmup (…) The ‘big one’ is coming. And it isn’t going to be very long before we’re going to get tested in ways that we haven’t been tested in a long time (…) It isn’t going to matter how good our [operating plan] is or how good our commanders are, or how good our horses are – we’re not going to have enough of them. And that is a very near-term problem”, he said during a recent interview.

Indeed, Richard seems pessimistic about his country’s ability to reverse its position in the power competition scenario. Currently, Washington is already behind China in terms of missiles. Beijing already has a new generation of ultra-long-range cruise missiles, in addition to a variety of ballistic missiles and hypersonic weapons, in the face of which the US has no equivalent equipment.

In addition, the Chinese armed forces also have warships equipped with radars capable of detecting stealth aircraft, surpassing the potential of the American F-22 and F-35 fleets. Also, as far as space warfare is concerned, China seems to grow much more than Washington, with the Pentagon having several times expressed concerns about the modern Chinese system of fractional orbital bombing.

Although such data are not enough to say that China is “overcoming” the American military power, they point to a scenario of Chinese growth in war technology in front of which the US, with so many internal and external problems, does not seem able to respond with equivalent progress. Washington remains the main military power but has fewer and fewer intermediate weapons preventing the use of the nuclear arsenal, which makes the situation quite tense and worrying, since in the face of eventual intense and prolonged conflicts the US will quickly tend to resort to the use of the extreme force.

It must also be mentioned that during the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, the US encouraged an irresponsible escalation of the conflict by supplying Kiev with weapons, including modern long-range missiles, but they did not achieve any success in their objectives, as Russia continues to maintain absolute control of the military situation. For this reason, the West quickly escalated the rhetoric, appealing to clear nuclear blackmail, worrying the entire international society. The case accurately illustrates what may happen in any new conflict situations – such as a possible Chinese intervention in Taiwan, in which the US would certainly send weapons and mercenary troops to support Taipei.

In fact, Richard’s analysis is supported by the recent US government document establishing a National Defense Strategy focused on Russia and China as central adversaries in a major global competition. The US is willing to use all its resources to prevent emerging nations from questioning the unipolar world order. And, in this sense, regional conflicts, which could be resolved quickly without foreign interference, are prolonged so that Washington “warms up” and “tests its strength” for the new “challenges”.

Faced with the emergence of Multipolarity, the best thing for the US to do is simply accept it and adapt to it, consolidating it as a regional power and abdicating any role of “global police”.
