and deep thoughts from our podcast
Stremousov's demise is too timely to be a coincidence. There is some very fishy shit going on. I can't believe all of this is happening. It is a nightmare. Russia was on the offensive 8 months ago, doing great making serious gains. But now this? I can't believe it. The only answer is that Putin and posse are working for the globalists. I'm so disappointed. I really wanted to believe that there was hope left on the planet.
It's as if Putin is perfectly playing his part in this WEF production of PSYOP-UKRAINE-INVASION kabuki theatre.
I think people still do not grasp the scale of the war we’re in. Russia is at war with “NATO” a.k.a. the anglo empire, and the empire wants to destroy Russia. Russia has already destroyed an army of 500,000 men in half a year. That is horrible but this is the scale of the war. Russia needs to plan for the long haul. Then it will win on the economic and diplomatic level. (And by diplomatic I mean primarily the contacts to the non-“western” world.)
What is interesting in this whole situation with Kherson is that Russian society was overwhelmingly for defending the city even at the cost of high military losses. This appeared to be a very principled question for most - if we declared Kherson to be the territory of Russian Federation, how and why should we give it up without a fight, especially if retaking it will require much higher sacrifices than defending it? Yet, Russian authorities decided to go against the grain and to disregard public opinion hoping that propaganda will take care of the minds of the people as it did before, in 2014, when constant flow of concessions and retreats by Russia was presented as "Putin's cunning plan" (ХПП - хитрый план Путина). How well this plan worked that led to creating out of Ukraine a formidable anti-Russian force that was given 8 years to turn Russia supporters there into Russia haters and to build a strong, motivated and well armed military. But, the more I look at the situation the more I'm convinced that this was actually THE plan that Putin executed meticulously and delivered us a fratricidal war perfectly on cue when it was desperately needed by certain global forces. I don't want to go into much detail here. If you are interested in my take on the big picture analysis of the situation, have a look my post on this subject, Substack says it is a 6 minutes read:
There I also posted link to a video interview by Studio Rubezh of a Russian businessmen industrialist, Vladimir Boglaev, that was recorded on the day of invasion, 02/24/2022. This video was only translated to English couple of days ago. Looking back, this interview had a lot of foresight into the situation the way it has developed since.
This endless war will keep going...
But somehow the "genius" Scott Ritter said a few weeks ago that the war will end in April 2023...
How the heck could he predict this so far ahead?
Either he is full of himself or he's a part of the bullshit promotion of the war...
"We were always at war with Eurasia" - 1984
Isn't this whole war a backroom deal.
Thanks, Riley. I'm awaiting a new video from Scott Ritter informing his viewers that this move indicates victory is at hand, and never mind the negative Russian media.
I agree with much of the sentiment in the Russian editorials.
I listened to about 40 minutes of the podcast, but had to turn it off in frustration because of not one mention of what is obviously the biggest issue with this surrender of Kherson.
There was just a referendum two months ago for the people of Kherson to join Russia, and now Russia pulls out without a fight, knowing that all of the people who remain there (even a "mandatory" evacuation never removes everyone) will be slaughtered, and all of the property of those who fled will be destroyed. This is a massive betrayal of the people of Kherson, and makes Russia directly complicit in the slaughter of those who for whatever reason couldn't or didn't leave. This is not a small detail; it should've been the #1 issue, but obviously isn't.
Granted, maybe it was getting difficult to hold the territory, because of the months-long paralysis of the Russian military effort as NATO takes over and arms the Ukraine side, but it will be many times more difficult to ever cross the river again. So, the unspoken revelation with this surrender is the abandonment of any plans that may have existed to take Niklolaev and Odessa. And if Ukraine keeps Odessa, then Ukraine becoming fully NATOized is assured, and Russia will lose even control of the Black Sea.
It seems that Dugin sees what's happening. This is a betrayal of the Russian people of the highest order. No wonder Dugin wasn't safe in Moscow.
And I'm curious why I haven't seen any comments from Kadyrov about this. Will he be the next patriot to fall at the hands of the FSB?
We the people around the planet have far more in common than those who tyrannize us would have us believe.
As a side note... Official decision on withdrawal from Kherson was announced to the citizens of Russia on 9-11. Date notation used in Russia and most European countries is dd-mm-yyyy so we have 09-11-2022. Just a coincidence? 😉
The little issue of if the Russian military had to take the injection to which you got a lot of flack from independent media still lingers in my head.
I call it little because the bigger picture I see is even more dire...
I have an uneasy feeling about the direction of this war. Much that I understand that the Russian speaking peoples of Donbass, the Lugansk People's Republic, the Donetsk People's Republic and Crimea want to be incorporated with the Russian Federation, the extension of the war only is serving the creation of the NWO.
The purposely controlled destruction of the west is on going without any real resistance...the 'war' in Ukraine is a perfect cover for this.
Sanctions, fuel supply, industry, food supply etc all are collapsing.
Build back better...
Also Russia is still going ahead with the Agenda 2030 sustainable development goals...
Looks like a controlled opposition to me...
What if a small group of world leaders were to conclude that the principal risk to the Earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? And if the world is to survive, those rich countries would have to sign an agreement reducing their impact on the environment. Will they do it? The group’s conclusion is ‘no’. The rich countries won’t do it. They won’t change. So, in order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” 
From this article:
Tactical withdrawals are a strategy not capitulation. People read to much into this.
This supposed deal between Washington and Moscow I've been hearing about is probably nothing but a face-saving lie. If Russia gives Kherson back in exchange for a truce, then it's less bad than losing Kherson under Ukrainian pressure and still being embroiled in a war which it is losing.
Russian PsyOp and gaslighting c/o WEf.
None of this should come as a surprise. Serious Russian analysts were demanding a retreat to defensible lines on the left bank to avoid another Stalingrad ever since Ukraine regained the operational momentum during the Kharkiv counteroffensive . And Surovikin's appointment was the appointment of an actual general (albeit a psychopath) who understands operational rationale, not a braindead yes-man ala Shoigu. If anything the AFU may have deliberately slowed the pace of advance to let the Russians withdraw in good order, which _might_ indicate Zelenskiy/Biden et al do still have some regard for Putin saving face.
