Arms shipments and media war

Addendum - 03/06/2022: The Russian information page www.sputnik.com is online again - designed as an anti-Russian page! Hijacked!

03/05/2022

The hot and the cold war, two sides of the current situation, both are currently being fomented by the West, with short-term goals and long-term consequences. The West seems to want to escalate the conflict.
In breaking with the rules that had been in force for decades, Germany once again bowed to US policy and decided to supply arms to Ukraine. Germany decided to hand over 2,700 Strelas from the stocks of the former eastern army - NVA, along with other military equipment, to the Ukraine. The deliveries are coordinated by the USA, which openly announced on February 23, 2022, the day before the Russians invaded Ukraine, that eight F-35 nuclear-capable stealth bombers would be deployed to Ukraine. This despite the assurances from all sides of the governments of the NATO countries that they do not want to intervene militarily in Ukraine. Putin created facts - 6 hours after this announcement he had the military bases of the Ukrainian Air Force destroyed. No way to go down!

But back to the Strelas - these are so-called man pads - a shoulder-launched missile that can shoot down planes because they use infrared sensors to track the engines of an aircraft and then destroy it. Well, the West never stops learning – as early as 1986, during the Afghan war, the CIA supplied the Afghan Mujahideen with 1000 Stinger Man pads, of which around 350 were used against the Russians – the missing ones are now desperately being sought around the world. The thought of such weapons falling into the hands of terrorists who would then "visit" civilian airports with them is frightening. Modern military planes have corresponding countermeasures, so the man pads aren't as effective anymore, but civil planes don't have them. Recall the 2019 footage of a US transport plane being fired upon approaching KIA – Kabul, which was only able to land safely after countermeasures detonated, but there were other, less fortunate incidents as well. Now Germany - certainly coordinated with the USA - is again playing the same card that proved to be problematic as early as 1989 at the latest, and this with 2700 missiles, in an unknown situation of "arming the people" as it currently exists in Ukraine. I hope this shipment doesn't fall into the wrong hands - not a rocket of these.

The pro-Ukrainian representatives' demand for a no-fly zone over Ukraine also requires direct NATO intervention in order to be enforced - so there would be a direct confrontation between NATO and Russian troops. This is currently the general consensus against such a measure, but there was also support for the delivery of arms to crisis areas - and that was also overturned.

But the escalation continues, there is talk of delivering planes to Ukraine! How do you want to do that? If they enter Ukrainian airspace, the Russians will intercept them if they are armed and able to defend themselves, then the air bases they launch from become the direct target of Russian attention as they function as enemy air bases. Where should these be - in Poland and Romania? Or even in the Baltic States? Either way, the direct conflict between Russia and NATO would be programmed.

I do not consider such arms deliveries to be an expedient measure. One can only hope that Israeli mediation will be more successful.
But things are also happening on the media front. “Ukraine specials” are running on almost all channels. Today I spent the afternoon watching Arte, a channel that I otherwise value. Putin is referred to in the media as “the lunatic in the Kremlin” – O-Ton Arte. Mutual blocking of the Internet is also counterproductive – in Russia and in the West. I didn't expect to have to consult the West's advice for Chinese dissidents to see Russian official websites!

In addition, one has to realize that this escalation was also driven by the West. First, Russian state media were banned from attending public press conferences in the US – they were labelled propaganda media. Sure they are, but what is Radio Martí and TeleMartí, or the stations Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which also broadcast from Germany, and you have to include Deutsche Welle – these are not also propaganda stations, but they are financed by the West. These were not hindered by the Russians. The next step was the withdrawal of the broadcasting license for RT-TV in Germany - which also led to counter-reactions on the Russian side. Now it is the case that the RT website has also been killed in Chinese style using a domain name server. Is Russian propaganda so much better than Ukrainian that it is feared? Because Mr. Selenskyj also makes war propaganda ... See here! One wants to secure the interpretation of the war, and one does one thing to prove to the responsible citizen that one is not sure of its propaganda effects.

Now, last but not least, they no longer want to report from Russia – the “public broadcasters” financed with tax money. As if this would change anything, the main reports were about Russian dissidents and protests against Putin, we will miss these reports, because that too is Russia. When reporting on the government of Russia, the reports were usually written in the commentary style - that is, not news, but interpretations of events.

 

What is Putin's strategy in Ukraine?

02/25/2022 - 22:10

Based on Putin's goal of "denazifying Ukraine" and "stopping acts of war against Ukrainians of Russian origin", he had announced that he did not want to occupy Ukraine. Current military results suggest he realy means this. The Russian troops have repeatedly stopped in front of the big cities and, contrary to expectations, have not marched into them. Now one might argue that he thereby also avoids high losses of his own – certainly correct. On the other hand, he also avoids high losses among the Ukrainian population in these cities. This is especially true now as the Ukrainian government has begun general arming of the population. On the other hand, Ukrainian reports suggest that Russian elite units are operating in these cities, specifically Kiev, in captured Ukrainian National Guard vehicles, as they are tasked with commando-style attacking and searching points of interest. The Russian aim seems to be to attack and neutralize military bases near the big cities. This also appears in the advance of the Russian units from the south, past Kiev, towards the Gostomel air base and leaving the city of Kiev on the right.

The course of the front is still quite unclear, both sides hardly publish any relevant news, but it seems clear that the Russians only advanced directly on the cities around Sumy and Kharkiv, which may be due to the fact that both cities are located on major roads in the immediate vicinity near the border. Likewise, the Russians in the south are exhausting the advance on Kherson and have bypassed the city.

Well, one has to see how the military development continues, after the initial successes of the Russian army, the Ukrainian resistance has only now strengthened, as the Ukrainian army has apparently been concentrated on the eastern areas, opposite the two self-declared People's Republics. This is also supported by the fact that the territorial gains in the east of the Ukraine can hardly be estimated, since the reports from there from both sides are very patchy and sparse.

Finally, a few words on Putin's "justifications" for "denazifying Ukraine" and "stopping acts of war against Russian-national Ukrainians," which were only sneered at in the mainstream media.

The fact is that the "Right Sector" in Ukraine had a significant influence on the country's politics after 2014, its leaders took over the highest offices of the state - including that of the Prosecutor General. This detached position resulted from the large part that this movement - ​​later party - had in the 2014 Maidan movement. It was the spearhead of the protesting Ukrainians against the elected government, mostly organized in a paramilitary manner. This development went hand in hand with the "exchange" of the earlier Lenin monuments in western Ukraine with those of the Stepan Bandera. He was declared National Hero under Yushchenko's government. President Yanukovych – Yushchenko's successor had this reversed by a court decision in 2011, by the way the same Yanukovych who was ousted from office in 2014.

Since the Ukrainian insurgent army (UAA), which was subordinate to Bandera at times, cooperated intensively with the German occupation troops, the Lemberg massacre is attributed to this troops, and their members also belonged in large numbers to the SS guards of the German Concentration Camps (KZ), this was also confirmed by others States such as Poland, Slovakia and Israel condemned as a fascist development. It should also be mentioned that the Day of the Defender of the Nation, celebrated in the former Soviet countries and dedicated to the victorious troops in World War II, was postponed to October 14 by the Poroshenkov government - predecessor of the current president - to the day of the founding of the Insurgent Army (UAA) already described. It should also be mentioned that from 1945 to 1956, after the start of the Cold War, the UAA actively carried out sabotage and attacks on regional officials and institutions in the Ukraine, Poland and Czechoslovakia on its own, supported by the Western secret services.

The attacks were also directed against the civilian population and Jews. The CIA estimated that around 35,000 people were killed between 1945 - 1951 by the UAA. These activities were co-coordinated by Stepan Bandera, who lived undisturbed in Munich until his assassination.

In addition to this new Ukrainian Bandera cult, reference should once againto the "Right Sector" and the "Svoboda" party. The storm troop of these ultra-right groups is the Azov regiment, which was set up as a battalion on the Maidan in 2014 and trained paramilitarily, also with US support. The regiment, whose strength is estimated in 2017 at 2,500 mercenaries, Ukrainians and foreign neo-Nazis, was then incorporated into the regular Ukrainian army as a Special Operations Regiment. The management structure remained untouched except for one leader. The missing leader was shot under dubious circumstances, he was opposed the incorporation and wanted to continue operating the regiment as an independent unit.

The Azov regiment has been stationed in eastern Ukraine since 2014 and is fighting against the self-declared People's Republics. Many of the violations of the agreed ceasefire after the Minsk Agreement were attributed to this Asow Regiment by the OSCE, which monitored the ceasefire. From snipers to artillery attacks, which also aimed to destroy the civilian structures in the self-declared People's Republics.

The Azov regiment has the Wolfsangel rune in its official troop insignia, a rune used by the SS in their divisional insignias - including the 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich". Photos of the troops with swastikas have also been published, also by neutral sources.

Well, this is the brief explanation why Putin spoke of a necessary "denazification of Ukraine" and of "stopping acts of war against Russian-born Ukrainians". Russia is particularly sensitive to the history of the Second World War, with 20 - 27 million, depending on the source, it had the highest casualties. This should also result in a "special responsibility for Germany's foreign policy".

The suppression of these explanations in the mainstream media does not make a good impression!

 

 

NATO HAVE THE WAR - Putin didn't wait for the arrival of the F35 fighter jets! He creates facts!

02/24/2022 - 08:20

The post below was written today, February 24th, 2022 at 3:00 a.m., the MSN message linked to it is from February 23rd, 2022 - 9:26pm - Putin announced the attack at 3:15 a.m. on February 24th, 2022 - note the Order - Putin reacted before the bombers are in Ukranine!

THE USA KEEP ESCALATING!

02/24/2022 - 3:15

The US sends 8 F-35 stealth multi-role fighter jets to UKRAINE after a brief stopover at Spangdahlem Air Base in the German Eifel, with full media attention! So much for the reluctance and non-military response of the EU and NATO countries expressed yesterday by politicians from all NATO and EU countries, since Ukraine is not a NATO country. Probably now? Now the question is clearly answered who is lying and lighting the fire in Europe.

Greetings from Kosovo!!

 

TO THE RISK OF WAR UKRAINE - RUSSIA!

The next level of escalation

Putin's recognition of the two separatist republics actually only ensures the status quo - Russia has not gone that far with South Ossetia and Abkhazia, or Transnistria. This does not represent a change in the current positions. After Ukraine, in contrast to the Minsk agreements, did not want to agree on a peaceful way out with the separatist leaders. Hardly mentioned in the West – Ukraine passed the Presidential Decree 117 on the 24th of March 2021 that stipulated the military reconquest of the breakaway territories. All the site has English translation - this page no! Google Translator helps! Zelensky: "Our soldiers will soon be making sefies in Donetsk" - a clear threat of war.

The Western perversion of justice in the Kosovo case is taking revenge, albeit late. – According to the Western logic of the time, air raids on Ukraine would then have to follow – like Serbia did back then. I hope Putin doesn't go that far after all. So: Anyone who recognizes Kosovo as independent must also do the same with Donetsk, Lugansk, Crimea, but also with the other split-off separatist states.

In portraying Russia in our mainstream media, I wouldn't be surprised if the next two low air pressure areas were named Putin and Medvedev and the high pressure areas Biden, Scholz and...
