Putin revealing at his economic meeting about the failure of Western colonial sanctions: “Russia has withstood this unprecedented pressure…The situation is stabilizing, the ruble’s exchange rate has returned to the levels of the first half of February and is being defined by the objectively strong payment balance”, says quick to follow this revelation was Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov announcing about the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine: “This endeavor will continue…Another stage of this operation is beginning…And I am sure this will be a very important moment of this entire special undertaking”—and swiftly following this announcement, it saw Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declaring: “We can now confirm that Russian troops have begun the battle for the Donbass, which they have been preparing for a long time …Russian forces are attacking along almost the entire front line, and a large part of the Russian army is now dedicated to this offensive”.
In viewing this present crisis, this report notes, it caused President Donald Trump to urge Russia and Ukraine to come to a peaceful agreement, with his statement warning: “This is a war that never should have happened, but it did…The solution can never be as good as it would have been before the shooting started, but there is a solution, and it should be figured out now – not later –when everyone will be DEAD!”—a warning followed by the entire world watching in shocked disbelief as a White House aide in an Easter Bunny costume jumped in front of President Joe Biden to shield him from questioning reporters—and were reporters one would think would have asked President Biden why he is now sending the oil he released last week from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to lower gasoline prices for Americans to Europe instead.
As to the cause of the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, this report continues, Foreign Minister Lavrov revealed that it stems from the West’s desire to dominate the world, and stated: “The current events are rooted in the United States and the collective West’s desire to rule and dominate the world and show everyone that there would be no multipolarity”—a statement of fact now joined by US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley revealing his extensive contacts with Ukrainian military officials to direct this conflict—is a conflict that now sees the US having dangerously depleted its stockpiles of anti-tank and portable air defense missiles it will take up to 4-years to replace—because of this rapid depletion of its existing military stocks, today sees it being reported that the Americans will train Ukrainian troops how to use advanced howitzers and other radar guided munitions—as to the actual fate of these American weapons the Ministry of Defense (MoD) continuously reports on, like in their just released urgent war bulletin: “On the morning of 18 April, air-launched missiles fired by the Russian Aerospace Forces delivered a precision strike against the 124th Joint Logistics Center of the Logistics Forces Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces near Lvov…The logistics centre and a large batch of foreign weapons delivered to Ukraine over the past six days from the United States and European countries was destroyed”—and in an analysis of this conflict, today it sees top Chinese geopolitical expert Executive Dean Wang Wen of the Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, in his just released open letter “The World Has Become More Dangerous And The Chances Of World War 3 Are Increasing”, warning:
The Russian-Ukrainian armed conflict has become protracted, making the world a more dangerous place. On the surface, it is a military struggle between Kiev and Moscow’s forces in the western and southern theaters. However, in essence, it’s a total outbreak of a Cold War-esque confrontation in Eastern Europe, and it is also a full-scale counterattack by Russia against the endless strategic expansion of the US and its NATO military bloc.
Despite not formally sending troops, the US and NATO have used almost all means of mixed warfare such as financial sanctions, an information blockade, intelligence support, satellite navigation, and air and space technology to comprehensively strangle Russia.
More and more scholars estimate that the possibility of the outbreak of World War III is increasing, and have even concluded that this could lead to a nuclear war. The situation is moving in the direction of global disaster. Putin cannot tolerate failure, and Biden is unwilling to give up, which will-could compel Russia to use nuclear weapons.
There’s a grim mathematical problem popular in cyberspace: In American rendering, the sum of every two digits of the starting dates of World War I (07/28/1914), World War II (09/01/1939) and the Russia-Ukraine conflict (02/24/2022) are the same.
[Note: World War I: 7+28+1914=1949 and 19+49=68]
[Note: World War II: 9+1+1939=1949 and 19+49=68]
[Note: Russia-Ukraine Conflict: 2+24+2022= 2048 and 20+48=68]
This is just a great coincidence, but it serves as a reminder to compare the dangerous evolution of the Russian-Ukraine conflict with the two worst wars in human history.
Looking back, tragedies often come from five sources: War, famine, economic crisis, pandemic, and climate disaster. In spring 2022, people didn’t expect that the five aspects would be experiencing unprecedented resonance.
The world may be on the eve of its most dangerous moment.
Further announcing today, this report details, Defense Minister General Sergey Shoigu stated: “In the course of the special military operation the Russian army is coping with its tasks the supreme commander-in-chief identified…The plan for the liberation of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics is being implemented systematically and measures are being taken to restore life to normal”—after which Defense Minister Shoigu revealed: “This year, 30 organizational events will be held in the Southern Military District, over 3,000 advanced weapons and items of military hardware will be supplied and the construction of about 170 military infrastructure facilities will be built and put into operation”—and it saw this revelation being joined by Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov noting that contrary to Western expectations, Russia hasn’t run out of precision munitions during the now almost two-month-long conflict in Ukraine, with him stating: “We don’t see any serious threats that could undermine our work on the planned tasks in state defense procurement. Perhaps this is a result of our Western partners keeping us on our toes since 2014…We have had plenty of time to adapt to the continuous sanctions they have been introducing against Russia…I would say that today’s situation in defense procurement is even better compared to the previous years…We already have contracts for 88% of our annual commitments…In previous years, we would not normally get to this figure before the end of May…And the cash execution of the state budget looks really good”.
Unlike the Russian military whose weapons and supplies are abundant, however, this report notes, today it sees Western war correspondents posting messages like: “A Ukrainian commander on the frontline near Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, who said their positions are being hit by Russian airstrikes and heavy artillery 14 hours a day…They are “desperate” for more help, he said, outgunned, and running low on ammunition”—today it saw the Ukrainian Defense Ministry posting the message: “One shouldn’t simplify the situation, underestimate the enemy, it is a mistake to believe that we have already won the war”—and today it saw a Ukrainian government official warning the citizens of their region: “There is no more time for thinking…Leave!”
After the MoD published an updated list this morning of the names of the tens-of-thousands of Ukrainian soldiers killed so far, this report concludes, it offered another opportunity to surrender for the remaining Ukrainian forces holed up at the Azovstal steel plant in the Black Sea port city of Mariupol with the message: “Considering the catastrophic situation at the Azovstal metallurgical plant, the Russian Armed Forces again offer militants of nationalist battalions and foreign mercenaries to stop hostilities and lay down their arms starting 12pm Moscow time on 19 April 2022…All who lay down their weapons are guaranteed the preservation of life”—a final surrender offer followed by Russian Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov vowing that the territory of the Azovstal plant in Mariupol would be liberated from Ukrainian nationalists today, with him declaring: “I want to please those people who are waiting for peace, stability in the Ukrainian Republic, that today, with the help of the Almighty, we will finish off Bandera Nazis in Mariupol and take Azovstal completely”—and among the other just issued urgent war bulletins, sees the most notable of them being:
“Russian missile and artillery troops delivered strikes against 1,260 Ukrainian military sites overnight”.
“Russian tactical aviation carried out strikes against 84 separate military targets, destroying a Tochka-U tactical missile repair facility in Dnepropetrovsk, a territorial battalion command post in the area of Zelenoye Pole, and two ammunition and fuel depots near the settlement of Chervonnaya Polyana”.
“Russian artillery and rocket troops targeted 331 objects, crippling nine command posts, an depot containing rocket artillery ammunition, and 315 areas where enemy troops were concentrated in areas near the settlements of Popasnaya, Lugansk and Novomayorskoe, Dnepropetrovsk”.
“Russian air defense systems shot down a Ukrainian MiG-29 fighter near the community of Malinovka in the Donetsk Region…Two Ukrainian Tochka-U tactical missiles were intercepted near the communities of Petropolye and Malaya Kamyshevakha”.
“Based on evidence reviewed by The New York Times, internationally banned cluster bombs have been launched by Ukrainian troops”.
“Internationally banned MON-50 and MON-90 mines used by the Ukrainian forces were discovered in Mariupol, RT’s Murad Gazdiev reported”.
“An abandoned ammunition depot of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalion Azov was found in the basement of the Yalta health complex located in the village of Urzuf in the Donetsk People’s Republic”.
“Lt. Colonel Nikolay Biryukov, the commander of the 501st Battalion of the Marine Corps of Ukraine, defended his decision to lay down arms, saying he ”doesn’t regret” surrendering to soldiers of the Russian Federation, in an interview with Russia’s Rossiya-1 news channel that went viral Monday”.
“A lot of captured and surrendered Ukrainian troops are being kept in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) where good conditions have been created for them, DPR head Denis Pushilin told the Soloviev Live TV channel on Tuesday…Pushilin did not rule out that those prisoners of war would later be involved in efforts to reconstruct Mariupol”.
“Overall, the following Ukraine military targets have been destroyed by Russian military forces since the beginning of the special military operation: 140 aircraft, 487 unmanned aerial vehicles, 252 surface-to-air missile systems, 2,353 tanks and other combat armored vehicles, 256 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,014 field artillery guns and mortars and 2,208 special military motor vehicles”.
President Putin declared: “The calculation was to quickly undermine the financial and economic situation in our country, to provoke panic in the markets, the collapse of the banking system, and a large-scale shortage of goods in stores…We can say with confidence that this policy against Russia has failed – that the strategy of the economic blitzkrieg has failed…Moreover, the sanctions were not without consequences for the initiators themselves…I am referring to the growth of inflation and unemployment, the deterioration of economic performance in the United States and the countries of Europe, the decline in the standard of living of the Western peoples and the devaluation of their savings”.
Along with the failure of this Western colonial “economic blitzkrieg” against Russia, this report notes, it comes at the same time the leftist New York Times just published their warning article “A Biden Blood Bath?”, wherein it assesses: “A recent poll truly shocked me…Quinnipiac University found that President Biden’s approval rating had sunk to just 33 percent…You might argue that this was just one poll, but Biden’s approval is down in multiple surveys…These are just devastating results…We could well be looking forward to a Biden blood bath”—a dire assessment now joined by articles appearing like “Longtime Allies And Clients Snub ‘Hypocritical’ US Pressure to Impose Russia Sanctions”—all of which has now been joined the withering just published Wall Street Journal article “Biden’s Hostility Backfires In Brazil”, wherein it reveals: “President Biden has been in office for 15 months and has yet to speak with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro…It isn’t for lack of trying on Mr. Bolsonaro’s part…But Mr. Biden has declined to take his call and hasn’t initiated one of his own…Guatemala’s center-right democratic government has also experienced this petty colonialism in spades, perhaps because the tyrants in Washington think they can muscle a small country—though it’s yet to yield results…In the world of Biden geopolitics, foreign policy is a tool to settle grudges and advance progressive ideology”.
Among those fighting back against the “progressive ideology” being pushed on other nations by “the tyrants in Washington”, this report continues, is the devout Muslim nation of Turkey, which is NATO’s second largest member after the United States—is a Turkey that viewed with anger and alarm the United States secretly arming Kurdish forces with sophisticated American weapons—is a Turkey that also knows the historical ties between the Kurds and Ukraine—is a Turkey that just last year, in May-2021, foiled a plot masterminded by former Ukrainian intelligence official Oleg Kalashnikov to use the Kurds to transfer drugs and weapons from Iraq to the town of Kharkiv in northeastern Ukraine—and due to the socialist Biden Regime failing to rein in these Kurdish forces before they could cause any more bloodshed in Ukraine, this morning it saw the Turkish military launching their “Operation Claw-Lock” invasion of Iraq to destroy these Kurdish forces, and saw the Turkish Defense Ministry proclaiming: “Our operation is continuing successfully, as planned…The targets that were set for the first phase have been achieved…Our struggle will continue until the last terrorist is neutralized”.
Also fighting back against the “progressive ideology” being pushed on other nations by “the tyrants in Washington”, this report details, is China, that last week accused the United States of having “a white supremacy ethos”, and whose Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijia plainly stated: “China and Russia are continuing cooperation and exchange activities in science and technology as scheduled…Guided by the vision of everlasting friendship and win-win cooperation, the two sides will advance relevant cooperation in a practical manner…The United States has no right to put its domestic law above international law, still less use it as a pretext to meddle in China’s internal affairs…The United States has been constantly disseminating disinformation about the Ukraine crisis, flagrantly smearing China and driving a wedge between China and Russia with the agenda to profit from the repercussions of its blameshifting and confrontation incited among others…For too long, the United States has been whipping up the “China threat theory” and throwing dirty water at China…But lies remain lies, no matter how many times they are repeated”.
Fully supporting “the tyrants in Washington” and their actually demonic “progressive ideology”, that now demands little baby-children be allowed to change their sex with drugs and surgery without their parents’ approval, this report continues, is Britain, who revealed this past week that British special forces are in Kiev teaching Ukrainian Nazi troops how to use UK-supplied anti-tank weapons—a revelation causing articles to appear in Russia like “London Admits It Is At War With Russia In Ukraine”—are articles appearing at the same time the Ministry of Defense (MoD) revealed former British soldier Shaun Pinner is now the second British citizen captured by Russian military forces—are British citizens whose looming fate was described yesterday by MoD spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov, who stated:: “They came to Ukraine to earn money by killing the Slavs…Therefore, the best thing that awaits them is criminal liability and long prison terms”—and yesterday it saw the MoD further revealing: “An estimated 6,824 foreign mercenaries from 63 countries have come to Ukraine to fight for Volodymyr Zelensky’s government… Of these, 1,035 have been “destroyed”. while several thousand remain…Four hundred foreign fighters are holed up in Mariupol, where nationalist forces, including the neo-Nazi fighters, have refused to surrender…The most numerous group of foreign fighters (1,717) arrived from Poland, while around 1,500 came from the United States, Canada and Romania…Up to 300 people each came from the UK and Georgia, while 193 arrived from the Turkish-controlled areas of Syria”.
Among the latest urgent war bulletins issued by the MoD, this report notes, the most notable of them are:
“Throughout the night, the Russian artillery systems delivered strikes against 315 Ukrainian military targets to destroy 18 command posts, 22 artillery batteries, an OSA-AKM surface-to-air missile system, and also 275 strongholds and areas of enemy manpower amassment”.
“Russian air defense capabilities shot down three Ukrainian combat aircraft: two MiG-29 fighters near the community of Izyum and a Su-25 plane near Avdeyevka”.
“Russian forces also shot down 11 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles near the communities of Klimovo, Nevelskoye, Novotroitskoye, Izyum, Panteleimonovka, Sladkovodnoye and Yasnoye. They also intercepted 10 large-caliber shells fired by Ukrainian multiple launch rocket systems against the community of Chernobayevka”.
Most horrifying of these just issued MoD urgent war bulletins, however, this report concludes, is the one revealing: “Nationalist battalions will form more than 70 mobile groups equipped with mortars with the goal to shell Orthodox churches on Easter Sunday…Orthodox Christians will celebrate the holiday on 24 April, a week after than the feast was held in most of the Western world…The attacks are planned in the Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa, Sumy, and Kharkov regions…The plan is to later accuse Russian troops of mass murder of civilians on this holy day…Several Western countries are aiding Kiev in the preparation of this sophisticated monstrous provocation”—and is a “monstrous provocation” desperately needed by the godless Western colonial powers because of the truthful articles now appearing in America like “Russia Continues To Grind Down The Ukrainian Military And Fuel Resources”, wherein it reveals:
Despite U.S. and NATO stubbornly insisting that the Russian military is a clown show incapable of fighting competently, you only need to note that Russian military units, missiles and aircraft are moving freely around Ukraine. Take a look at the following video that shows a Russian field kitchen and laundry, it shows a capability not widely available in the U.S. Army. We have become accustomed to setting up static bases, mess halls and laundromats overseas that hire 3rd world folk to cook our food and wash our dirty underwear. Take note of what the Russian soldiers do when they enter the mess trailer (they remove their cover and hang it on a wall). This is not a picture of untrained conscripts grudgingly being thrown into battle.
Russian media sites are now filled with videos of thousands of Ukrainian military personnel surrendering and leaving behind large caches of NATO supplied weapons. There also are photos of the passports of two U.S. citizens who were part of Ukrainian units fighting the Russians. It is not clear if these men are captured or dead. The Russians claim they have captured a large number of Western mercenaries in Mariupol and their fate is not sunny. Because the Russians do not consider them legitimate combatants they will not be treated according to the Geneva Convention. (Sounds like the Russians are going to treat them like the despicable U.S. Department of Justice has treated the so-called January 6th insurrectionists.)
Unlike Ukraine, Russia does not seem to have a problem sending more vehicles to the fight:
Russia Ships BM-21 Grad Reinforcements to the Front
Here is video of Russian truck and tank columns moving around Kharkov. Where are the videos of the Ukrainian forces attacking and destroying these columns? Do you doubt for a minute that Ukraine would be sharing such material widely if it existed? That is the dog that is not barking. Russia is surrounding and ready to destroy the fragmented Ukrainian Army. Unlike Mariupol, most of these battles will be in open country where the Ukrainians will have little protection from drones, bombers and artillery. Tanks and troops will do the clean up once strong points are eliminated.
Finally, take a look at the British assessment of the situation on the ground in Ukraine.
Pay attention to the gold and black shaded areas. These are the locations where the Ukrainian Army in the east is located and where Russia will attempt to encircle and destroy. Unless Ukraine is able to send columns of tanks and trucks to the east to resupply the beleaguered forces, the Ukrainian Army may be eliminated by the end of May.
