As my posting this morning reminds, Washington has been predicting a Russian invasion of Ukraine for 8 years.
What is 8 years of this obvious propaganda all about?
It is about demonizing Russia and her leader. It is about using fear of Russia to control Europe. It is about arms sales to Europe to “deter Russian aggression.”
None of the “experts” and top officials have explained why Russia wants Ukraine when it doesn’t even want the Donbass Russians. Ukraine, a financial basket case full of neo-Nazis, is the last thing Russia wants. If Putin is “rebuilding the Soviet Empire” as incompetent “Russian experts” allege, he is going about it in a strange way. When Russia responded to the Georgian invasion of South Ossetia by conquering Georgia, Putin did not keep the former Russian province. He withdrew the Russian troops and left Georgia with its sovereignty.
But as I have reported for years, facts are of zero importance to Western governments and media. I expect to hear at any moment from the presstitutes that Russia has invaded Ukraine and watch the fake news be made reality by constant presstitute assertion of the lie, just as they did with the Covid “vaccine” by reporting endlessly that double-vaxxed a person was 97% protected.
That is the way the Western world operates. The false reality created for Western peoples is everywhere. The Canadian government has turned a protest against mandatory vaccination with a dangerous and counterproductive substance into a “racist, white supremacist, domestic terrorist overthrow of the Canadian government.” These slanderous charges from Trudeau are the basis for Trudeau’s proclamation of “emergency powers” which Trudeau hopes to use to destroy the truckers who challenged his dictatorial edict. Trudeau has no fear of being seen as a new Hitler, because the presstitutes will present him as “saving Canadian democracy” from fascist truckers.
Western governments are totally uninterested in the opinion of the peoples they govern. The governments themselves do not even have sovereignty. The West is ruled by the covert division of the CIA and the global elite. This is why in such a diversity of ethnicities, languages, and cultures there is only one voice.
The Russians will fool themselves into thinking that the collapse of the Ukraine Invasion Narrative is a victory. It is not. The West will claim the victory, and the presstitutes will make it real by endlessly repeating it. Washington deterred Russia with troops and jet fighters sent to Eastern Europe and with a list of threatened sanctions that would bring Russia to her knees. Putin came to his senses just in time. And so on.
After eight years of what Putin calls Donbass Genocide with thousands of Russians killed and maimed by neo-Nazi/CIA attacks on civilians — https://sputniknews.com/20220215/putin-calls-ongoing-events-in-donbass-genocide-1093057321.html — the Russian parliament finally did what it should have done 8 years ago and voted 351 to 16 to recognize the two republics, Donetsk and Lugansk, that seceded from Ukraine after the US overthrew the elected government and installed a neo-Nazi regime. But despite the overwhelming vote of the Russian Duma–almost unanimous–Putin is still holding out for the Minsk Agreement. https://www.rt.com/russia/549454-putin-recognize-donbass-independence/
What sense does this make? For years all the signatories to the agreement, except Russia, have flatly refused to abide by it. Indeed, they accuse Russia of not abiding by it. What does Putin think has changed?
Why does Putin think any agreement signed with the West is worth anything when Putin has said repeatedly that every agreement Russia had with the West has been broken.? Why does he think the already broken Minsk Agreement is the answer? Is Humpty Dumpty going to be put back together again?
How can it be that after 8 years of Ukrainian attacks on the republics, which Putin likens to genocide, attacks that have bittered the Donbass Russians against Ukrainians, making them far less willing to be part of Ukraine than 8 years ago when they seceded, the answer is to return the republics to Ukraine on some semi-autonomous basis?
No other “solution” could better insure ongoing conflict. The neo-Nazis would use whatever central authority presides over the autonomy of the Donbass Russians to harass them continually or to vote away their autonomy.
It has been totally obvious from the beginning that the only solution is the exact same solution that was used in Crimea. Both Crimea and the Donbass region are historically part of Russia. Soviet governments put them into the Soviet province of Ukraine in the 20th century for administrative or other reasons. The Soviets did not foresee the collapse of their regime and as Ukraine and Russia were part of the same country, the Soviet Union, it seemed to make no difference.
But with the Soviet collapse and the breakup of the country by Washington, it has made a big difference. There will be no peace until Russia takes back its own people and chases Washington’s missile bases off her doorstep.
