I agree,
Russia is mirroring what ukraine military is moving into the donbass area.
It is a common sense move by Russia to keep kiev from pursuiting additional crimes against humanity.

An attack by Ukraine could easily lead to WWIII and I sincerely believe some there wish it.

And with idiot generals like that Hodges and others, it could happen in the blinken of an eye.

Thank you for your analysis, Alexander. I just finished reading a very good article on The Saker, written for the Unz Review: “Understanding anti-Putin PSYOPs: Preparing for war” You might be interested in it, if you haven’t already read it. Here’s the link: https://thesaker.is/understanding-anti-putin-psyops-preparing-for-war/

Interesting article. The one point the DC leaders are missing is that the US military is basically led by civilians. They may have General ranks but except for the -get your card stamped- time in a combat area (far from any real combat), they are basically civilians playing at being a soldier. The same situation that caused the quick collapse of the French army in WW2. Another point the DC crowd is missing is the fact that after 20 years of non stop war, Middle America who has traditionally produced the human war fodder has had enough. They nave been… Read more »

So what exactly does Ukraine want? For the Luhansk and Donetsk Peoples’ republics to be brought back under Kiev “authorities” control? For what reason? So that the US can build more military bases along Russia’s western border? The US SAYS it doesn’t want a war in Ukraine, but I seriously doubt the truth of this. When did the US not want a war? Luhansk and Donetsk each held a referendum in 2015 (?) on separating from Ukraine and the vote in favour was very high with only 5% said to have voted against. Why isn’t this being respected by Ukraine? Perhaps the only… Read more »

The present ‘true’ leadership of Ukraine is composed of fascist barbarians, whose ideologies serve to harden their behavior much as is the situation with ISIS. al Qaeda et.al.

What do they want? To fulfill their barbarian instincts, no matter the odds and no matter the consequences, to them or anyone else. Avoid them like the plague and if not possible, do the next best thing.

Bandera’s legacy of course. He didn’t spring from a vacuum. To understand the present, look to the past. To understand the future, look to both and extrapolate.

And above all, judge a man by the friends he keeps and the devils he reaps.

Ukraine’s been an independent state for 30 years now. What could possibly justify their fascist behavior now? It’s a mystery to me.

Simple…in all of its 30 years of independence, Ukraine’s effectively been a failed state and it’s always easier to blame someone else for your failings than yourself.

Even the U.S. does it. In fact, they may have already become the role model.

Ukraine’s so-called electronic census showed last year that its population has decreased by 11.2 million or 23 percent since 2001, which was the last year an official census was conducted. In 1991, when Ukraine gained independence from the Soviet Union, Ukraine had close to 52 million inhabitants. In the past decade, 3.8 million Ukrainians left the country and have not returned. The census showed that ethnic Russians make up just over 17% of Ukraine’s population. Compare with 61% in Luhansk and 50% in Donetsk. US and EU main stream media are forever accusing Russia of its intentions to take over… Read more »

The question is not what Ukraine wants. Unfortunately, for the time being, the question is what does Zelenski’s puppet master and his gang want. One thing is more money from the IMF to put in their pockets. Another is more zionist influence in Ukraine. Not very much longer.

And then there was Poroshenko the billionaire chocolate king who secured US support, US weaponry and military “assistance”, and plenty of IMF money.
The IMF paid Ukraine’s gas bill when it defaulted on a $3 billion payment to Russia. Ukraine also diverted (stole) Russian gas that was intended for Europe. One gang after another, including the zionist gang.

But but but…..z has already presented and layed the ground for his new defence policy to G20 Ambassadors or envoys to retake Crimea….most of if not all whom of course follow sanctions against Russia. Although Yermak said Ukraine will follow rhe Minsk peace plans….the fact that Ukraine now has after many attempts eg failed attempts via The Hague has now said by its Parliament that Russia is an aggressor country which maybe they feel gives the right to protect in their own way what they see as the territorial integrity of Ukraine ie Donbass.. I cannot imagine that Macron and… Read more »

When the patchwork quilt of republics of the USSR so quickly unraveled, various dangling threads were left. Chechnya, S. Ossetia, Abkhazia, Nag-Khar, Crimea. Recognizing that such a political implosion would naturally leave much unresolved, a ‘normal’ world order would have dealt with those issues in a judicious, fair and just manner but in every one of those unresolved points of contention other than Nag-Khar (so it seems), the US stepped in to manipulate the outcomes, and not short of fomenting civil war, in every case to the disadvantage of Russia. Declaring all of Stalin’s and Krushchev’s extra-constitutional edicts ‘sacrosanct’? Really?… Read more »

They did exactly the same with Yugoslavia and it certainly didn’t escape the Kremlin’s notice.

Then they play to a rhetoric of fair play, innocence and good will to all. My God, what cheek!

Russia is moving the troops to be able to quickly move into Ukraine when Zelenski and his gang is removed from power and chaos threatens to break out. The last thing Russia wants is chaos in Ukraine. Most people, especially in eastern Ukraine will welcome them with open arms. And the first thing they will do is to end the silly C-19 bullshit and get the ukrainian economy moving again.

Thanks for your quality videos!
One problem when analysing the situation in Donbas, it´s always done from a western perspective. It´s difficult to take in to account the Russian perspective.
I believe Russia has a totally different long time planning for Ukraine, and have had that since 2014. SWIFT, Import substitute, military development etc , gives a hint.
Sooner or later a big chunk of Ukrainian soil will be returned to mother Russia. I hope.

Truth is there are more cargo plane flights leaving the home of the 101st (the US’s favorite lead group). Where are they going??? Is it just supplies???? Are there troops aboard???
We hear them going over our house and we are both Vets so….

Anyone considering attacking an autonomous region of Russian speakers bordering Russia, should remember what happened to Georgia’s army when Saakashvili launched it against South Ossetia.

The ball’s in Washington’s court. ‘To be annihilated or not to be annihilated’, because if Ukraine attacks and Washington is foolish enough to follow, it’ll be nuclear winter time.

As long as Ukraine just continues murdering Donbass’ children with drone and mortar attacks, America will continue giving it its unswerving loyalty and support.

Beyond that, who knows what dungballs Strangelove Hodges and his ilk have rattling around in their heads and where it might lead.
