In the face of Western reports that Russia is on its heels and retreating, the facts on the ground tell a different story. For starters, Russian allies with embassies still operating in Kiev are shutting down and ordering their personnel to leave Ukraine. This includes China, Tajikistan, Krygyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkenistan,Serbia, Belarus, India and Egypt. Note that these embassies have remained open during the last seven months of the war with Russia. The decisions to cutback or cease operations is one indicator that these countries expect a major escalation in the war on the part of Russia in the near future.
Another piece of evidence that implies Russia is beefing up for a new offensive comes via Belarus. Russia is moving a large number of trucks, armored personnel carriers and tanks to Belarus. Take a look at these two videos.
NOTE–The vehicles in the next video are marked with new tactical sign–i.e., a white triangle with the number “2” inside the triangle.
You do not do this for vehicles that are going to be placed in defensive positions along the border with Ukraine. It is an additional indicator that Russia and Belarus may be planning to launch a combined operation from the north that will pose a direct threat to Kiev.
Belarussian officials are downplaying the buildup:
Belarus has deployed enlarged border detachments and mobile groups of territorial border service agencies to protect the border with Ukraine against the backdrop of increased intelligence activity on the Ukrainian side, said Anton Bychkovsky, official representative of the State Border Committee of the Republic of Belarus.
While Russia is beefing up its forces in Belarus, the Supreme Russian Commander for military operations in Ukraine, General Surovikin, made the following comment in recent days:
I don’t want to sacrifice the lives of the Russian soldiers in a partisan war of hoards of fanatics armed by NATO.
We’ve got enough power and technical means to lead Ukraine to total capitulation.
In other words, the General, knowing the capability of the forces under his command and knowing the missions he and his staff are planning for them, is confident he has the means to force the surrender of Ukraine. No mention of negotiations. The word, “capitulation” is not ambiguous in its meaning.
There is another possibility to entertain–this is an elaborate feint by Russia designed to force Ukraine to deploy already weakened forces to the northern border to defend against a possible invasion from the north. This will make it difficult, if not impossible, for Ukraine to send reinforcements to the south in a timely manner if Russia decides to launch an offensive to clear out the Donetsk Republic or attack Nikolayev.
All of this movement on the ground is taking place against developing political chaos in the West. The United States, under the leadership of the demented Joe Biden, has embarked on a foreign policy apparently designed to anger and offend ostensible allies. The Saudis find themselves being treated like lepers. According to Reuters:
Today, the cowardly KGB midget has launched swarms of explosive Iranian Kamikazi drones at civilian targets in Kiev.
Meh. Putin is winning. This war was caused by the West: both their own meddling in Ukraine (installing a puppet, J6th-style in 2014), and their strange refusal to negotiate, which would have saved lives and prevented this war outright.
From the elections in Sweden and Italy, the Dutch Farmers rising up to resist the ESG, and France wanting to get out of NATO, Macron openly calling for peace and rightly addressing the real cause of this war, we see the free people of Europe and the United States throwing off the rule of the unelected WEF and their death-cult everywhere we look.
Putin is randomly killing Ukrainian women, children, and elders as part of a terror campaign against civilians, because his military FAILED and got the crap kicked out of them as they were driven back across the border.
Putin will be dead or deposed before this is over, and the world will be a better place once he’s gone. He couldn’t walk out on a Moscow street now without the risk of being attacked by a mob of angry Russian wives and mothers. He’s constantly surrounded by private security forces to protect him from assassination—and they may eventually be the ones paid to do it.
Putin is winning. He’s waging war now that the West didn’t negotiate, as both Putin AND Zelenskyy both wanted to do.
Biden and the other installed puppets said “no,” and now are responsible for all those Ukrainians who died.
Putin’s military is just fine, and pounding targets in Ukraine while preserving their troops.
Who the hell do you think you are fooling?
He likely won’t be the only one. The world is going be a better place when the globalists are defeated.
Putin has support of his people. They are now united, especially after the Nordstream and Crimea bridge attacks.
Maybe you shouldn’t be relying on right-wing social media for all of your “information”.
I don’t consume any right-wing social media.
Zero. None. Nada.
A responsible citizen is skeptical of all government, and all media…especially those owned by the very oligarchs that install the government.
Perhaps you shouldn’t be lying and pretending its “information” in the first place?
You’re not fooling anyone.
