Geopolitical update

Russia is taking the gloves off as the US/NATO continues poking into the bear's lair.

Global South
Patrushev: Interview with Isvestia [Important. It explains why the Russian leadership views the conflict in Ukraine and the actions of NATO as actually between the US and Russia over Russia continued existence. Therefore, it is existential for both since this puts the US at risk of destruction also. It can easily lead to WWIII and a strategic nuclear exchange. For example, there have been two assassination attempts on Putin in the past several days,  the most recent one on the Kremlin itself. While many in the West would cheer success, it would not last long with the Russian hardliners assuming control instead.]

If the conflict in Ukraine were existential, Russia would have removed the regime in Kiev by now.

So bunker bust the zelensky regime, then what? A somali-style failed state with nazi warlords running wild?

Peter Pan said...

Hand the western part over to the Poles. Who are, btw, Washington's latest BFF.

Peter Pan said...

If there's one thing Russians have demonstrated, is they know how to dispose of Nazis.

Canada may have a Ukraine problem - but only out west.
