Western corporate media have been hyping a possible war between Russia and Ukraine for weeks with misleading information that did not reflect the true history of these two countries. The lack of historical knowledge about these countries so far from our own realities is clear, and the media's manipulation only serve to fulfill a globalist agenda.
Reading the European newspapers, one could see the conflict of interests amongst the countries involved in this battle. On the one hand, we have a European Union that is increasingly dependent on Russia and the only one harmed through the sanctions that may be imposed, on the other hand, we have the United States, the most interested in this war and which uses Ukraine to achieve its objectives. The US' only interest is that the Eurasian bloc does not expand, even if NATO member countries are directly penalised with these attacks.
President Vladimir Putin recognised the independence of the pro-Russian republics of Donbass last Monday. Through his long speech on national television in a nationalist tone, he brought up some ancient history. Modern 21st century people with low cultural awareness only consider recent history to be important, and worse – they choose only the parts that suit them and eliminate everything else. But Putin, pointed out some important passages for the people of the West to understand what his real motivations are.
Putin stated in his speech “Modern Ukraine was wholly created by Russia, or to be more precise, by Bolshevik communist Russia. Lenin and his supporters did this crudely, giving away Russia's historic territories. There are millions of people who live there and they haven't been consulted about anything.”
It is not the first time that the Russian president has shown his disaffection with the founder of the Soviet Union, naming him a terrorist. In this case, when Putin says that “Ukraine is part of Russia”, he evokes the right to secession of the republics inscribed in the Soviet Constitution of 1924. This measure, paradoxically desired by Lenin, led to the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Already in his end-of-year speech Putin had accused Lenin of having created an artificial state, while bringing up the issue of Crimea, Russian territory ceded to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev. When Putin speaks in his speech on “decommunisation” he clearly blames Soviet leaders for the disintegration of their own state.
The Ukrainian question is also ethnic. The inhabitants of Donetsk are Russians, and they are in danger of being eliminated by the government militias, defined as Nazis. Ukrainian Nazism is the legacy left by Stepan Bandera, war criminal and terrorist who collaborated with Nazi Germany.
In 2010 Stepan Bandera was recognised as “Hero of Ukraine” by then President Viktor Yushchenko, whilst the European Parliament itself criticised this act. It is amazing how the narratives of western newspapers ignore these facts, almost wholly support Ukraine and paint Russia as the villain of this story, whilst leaving these small details aside.
In the hours following Putin's speech after the liberation of the breakaway republics was declared - groups of people in Donetsk and Luhansk took to the streets to celebrate with Russian flags in their hands, fireworks were fired and the Russian anthem was sung by them.
The authorities of the Republic of Donetsk have prepared a plan for the evacuation of the population, which prioritises women, children and men over 50 years of age. The plan calls for the evacuation of 7,800 people, although at the moment there would be 60,000 people present in Rostov-on-Don, to whom the Russian government has granted aid of around 10,000 rubles (US$130) a month.
Putin is starting to put his house in order and to protect his state. He was categorical in saying that the freedom of his people and their security are non-negotiable.
The measures and sanctions that the United States and NATO want to impose against the Kremlin will weigh more heavily on Europe than on the United States. The problems concern energy and trade, Europe depends on Russian gas and the energy crisis could intensify even further, increasing the prices of electricity bills (which are already exorbitant).
In this war, so sought after by the Biden administration, Putin himself had already underlined from the beginning that “there would be no winners”, only losers within an ever more bankrupt European population that is already teetering on the edge of absolute poverty.
Putin finds himself in an even stronger position vis-a-vis the European Union, his fight against globalism is succeeding for the simple fact that the chess game played by the globalists has opened an unprecedented margin of error.
As I had already written about earlier, Putin is playing chess, this is not just a military game but a psychological game that requires a lot of sang-froid and careful strategising - and in this domain, the Russians are light years ahead of their enemies.
Karina is clearly wrong about Putin's "fight against globalism", for this concept turns an inexplicable blind eye towards Russia's wholesale adoption of the mandatory vaccination agenda and the WEF-driven cattle-tagging of the global population, amongst many other things. Putin's government is amply infested by graduates from Klaus Schwab's Young Global Leaders Forum, a.k.a the "school for Covid dictators", as has been amply and skillfully documented by sites such as Anti Empire and Edward Slavsquat. Without diminishing Russia's need for border security and non-NATO neighbours, it would make sense to ask about the extent to which its government is complicit in developments that are further eroding the global supply chains and endangering both food and fuel security worldwide.
