  • The War Has Just Begun - The Winter of Yuri

    10/04/2022 8:14:51 PM PDT · by Reeses · 7 replies ^ | September 29, 2022 | Big Serge
    I have been attempting for several days to collect my thoughts on the Russo-Ukrainian War and condense them into another analysis piece, but my efforts were consistently frustrated by the war’s stubborn refusal to sit still. After a slow, attritional grind for much of the summer, events have begun to accelerate, calling to mind a famous quip from Vladimir Lenin: “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”This has been one of those weeks. It began with the commencement of referenda in four former Ukrainian oblasts to determine whether or not to join the Russian...

    NY POST ^ | October 4, 2022 | By Snejana Farberov
    Soldiers in Russia’s newly formed 3rd Army Corps fighting in Ukraine are often drunk, plagued by low morale and forced to use obsolete weapons on the battlefield, according to the Ukrainian military. The Kremlin cobbled together the formation in June to replace the tens of thousands of troops killed or injured since the start of the invasion in February. It is composed of several brigades totaling some 15,000 mostly volunteer soldiers equipped with hundreds of tanks, Newsweek reported. But according to an update from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Monday, Russia’s five-month-old unit is facing...

  • Russia expelled from International Civil Aviation Organization

    Russia loses even more prominence in the sky. The International Civil Aviation Organization, a UN agency dedicated to studying the problems of the sector as well as promoting unique regulations and standards for world aeronautics, resolved yesterday to expel Russia from its governing body. The decision was made yesterday, during one of the days of its General Assembly that is being held in Montreal, Canada. The invasion of Ukraine and the collateral effects of this action have been the compelling arguments for a decision unprecedented since the founding of ICAO in 1944. Russia needed a minimum of 86 votes to...
  • Russian nuclear submarine armed with 'doomsday' weapon disappears from Arctic harbor: report

    A top-of-the-line Russian nuclear-powered submarine has gone missing from its harbor in the Arctic along with its rumored "doomsday weapon," according to multiple reports. NATO has reportedly warned members that Russia's Belgorod submarine no longer appeared to be operating out of its White Sea base, where it has been active since July. Officials warned that Russia may plan to test Belgorod's "Poseidon" weapons system, a drone equipped with a nuclear bomb that Russia has claimed is capable of creating a "radioactive tsunami," according to Italian media. The drone can be deployed from the submarine at any time and detonated at...

    President Biden spoke by phone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Tuesday as Ukrainian forces continued to drive back Russian invaders on two fronts. The call took place days after Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin claimed to annex four regions of Ukraine — some 18% of the country — and vowed to back up his claim with nuclear weapons if necessary. Biden signed a bill Friday authorizing another $12 billion in US aid for the Kyiv government while insisting the US will “never” accept Russia’s annexation attempt. Biden, joined on Tuesday’s call by Vice President Kamala Harris, “underscore[d] that the United States...

What kind of a reply is that? All the Ukrainian diplomat had to do was say 'bad idea' or 'won't work,' or 'too late for that now,' or he didn't like it.

    Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko accused neighbouring Ukraine on Tuesday of sending 15,000 troops to the border area to build defences and conduct reconnaissance, actions that he called "provocations". Lukashenko allowed his close ally Russia in February to use Belarus as a staging post for its invasion of Ukraine. However, he has said Belarus is not a party to the conflict and that its own forces are not involved. In comments carried by the state news agency BelTA, Lukashenko said the Ukrainian unit brought up to the border had blocked roads and was setting up checkpoints and firing positions. "In a...
  • Who Gains From The Pipeline Explosion? The Globalists Do — They Want Escalated War And Destruction, Have Unlimited Resources

    I’ve written for years, you can’t listen to what globalists say, you have to watch the consequences of their actions. Most of the time, they are projecting — meaning, doing exactly what they accuse others of doing.So, with the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipeline, which removes a vital source of energy from the German economy, fostering economic destruction and inflicting pain on Europeans this winter, not to mention damage to Russian cash flow and follow-on military capability, it is very obvious to this writer the beneficiary of this violent act is the globalist agenda. This agenda includes human death...

    Reservists mobilized in Russia have already appeared in the southern direction, they did not undergo the necessary training and have already begun to surrender. As reported by Censor.NET with reference to, this was stated by the spokeswoman of the operational command "South" Natalia Humeniuk. "We know the number, but it's only for us. They showed up, they're not prepared, but it's quite possible that they can prepare directly at the positions," she said. Humeniuk added that the Ukrainian military can monitor this process thanks to the resistance movement, which provides relevant information. "We follow them carefully and conduct the...

    SVIATOHIRSK/KYIV (Reuters) - Ukrainian forces have broken through Russia’s defences in the south of the country while expanding their rapid offensive in the east, seizing back more territory in areas annexed by Moscow and threatening supply lines for Russian troops. Making their biggest breakthrough in the south since the war began, Ukrainian forces recaptured several villages in an advance along the strategic Dnipro River on Monday, Ukrainian officials and a Russian-installed leader in the area said. The southern breakthrough mirrors recent Ukrainian advances in the east, even as Moscow has tried to raise the stakes by annexing land, ordering mobilisation,...

    A sense of unreality continues to permeate Russia and their claims to annexation of southern Ukraine, and that may be almost literally. Newsweek reports today that the Kremlin added “fake cheers” to Vladimir Putin’s speech on Friday announcing the annexation to sell this glorious nonsense to a Russian audience that has clearly grown tired of the war. And speaking of the audience … Unedited footage from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annexation speech in Moscow on Friday appears to show fake cheers were edited onto clips broadcast on state TV, while reports say that people were bussed in to attend the...

    Referendum participants reported being forced to “vote” at gunpoint by armed “election officials” who could see exactly which boxes were being ticked off on ballots. Human Rights Watch reported that local Ukrainians were fearful that voting against annexation would lead to reprisals, such as having one’s house demolished. This isn’t the first time Russia has used voter intimidation to fabricate a “correct” referendum result... Polish journalist Pieniazek corroborated international allegations of widespread voter intimidation and fraud, recounting them in detail in his book, Greetings from Novorossiya.

    South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham is at it again, this time kicking the warmongering up to 11 and demanding that President Joe Biden designate the Russian Federation as a “state sponsor of terror,” a move that would only heighten tensions further and worsen relations between the US and Russian Federation. That comment came when Sen. Graham appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Story” and was asked by the host, Trace Gallagher, about his thoughts on what’s going on in Russia.

    As Russians escaping a partial military mobilization in their homeland drank their morning coffee in a cinema that opened its doors for them in northwestern Kazakhstan, Central Asia was waking up to yet more fallout from Moscow’s bloody war in Ukraine. Almost a week into the drive for soldiers that Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on September 21 in response to a tide-shifting Ukrainian counteroffensive, sightings of Russians wandering the streets of cities throughout the region with backpacks and lost expressions have become commonplace. So, too, have lengthening lines at the state borders that Russian citizens can still cross without...
