US scouts: There is very little time left before the Russian invasion of Donbass


The West has little time to prevent a Russian military campaign in Donbas. With such a warning issued by the US intelligence services, writes the New York Times. For this reason, Washington invites its allies to develop a response strategy in the event of a conflict in eastern Ukraine.


According to American intelligence officers, the Kremlin sets itself two goals for a possible military campaign: taking control of most of Ukraine (apparently, the entire southeast of the country, including Odessa, Nikolaev and Kharkov), or general destabilization of the country with the coming to power politicians pro-Russian sense.

At the same time, NYT sources in the White House report that Moscow has not yet made a final decision on the deployment of troops in Ukraine, but the composition of the group deployed near the border of the two countries speaks of its offensive nature.

A new war is not inevitable, but everything is ready for this. If we, the West, act in disunity, then the Kremlin, seeing this, can do a terrible

- said Frederick B. Hodges, the former commander of American forces in Europe.

Some former US officials believe that Mr. Putin may decide to create a land corridor that will link the unrecognized republics of Donbass with the Crimea peninsula. American analysts believe the Kremlin views the next few months as a unique opportunity for action. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is leaving her post, and Europe is becoming dependent on Russian gas as never before. Fear of losing access to energy could limit the EU's response to Moscow's aggression.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has voiced his own concerns about Russia's plans. Speaking in Berlin on Friday, he commented on the "very unusual" concentration of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine.

It is imperative that Russia immediately disclose its goals of building up its military power on the Ukrainian border, as well as take measures to de-escalate and reduce tensions in the region.

- said the Secretary General of the Alliance.

According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), an increase in the number of Russian tanks, self-propelled artillery mounts, and Iskander-M short-range high-precision missile systems is recorded near Ukraine.

    There is an obvious "escalation of the situation" and the indiscriminate "demonization of Russia" by the malicious Washington masters of the hyperaggressive Kiev banderonazis!
    Washington is clearly preparing a large-scale bloody massacre in Donbass, and it will be blamed on "Russia and Putin" (as it already happened when the Tbilisi "Maidan regime" incited by the Americans, exactly during the opening of the 2008 Summer Olympics, villainously attacked South Ossetia, killing sleeping civilians and Russian peacekeepers).
    Knowing these Jesuit "tricks" of bloodthirsty Washington Freemasons, a "wild guess" suggests itself, but are they preparing such an insidious "surprise" (with abundant human sacrifices) for the World Winter Olympics-4 starting on February 2022 in Beijing ??! winked

      You need to be ready to respond to aggression, but not prescribe preventive strikes. You can even arrange a useless zone for now. This, it seems to me, will be the most serious deterrent to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

      And this is quite possible, these cattle are ready for anything, for them human lives mean absolutely nothing, their main goal is to play off Ukraine and Russia at all costs, to arrange a massacre between them and, under this noise, once again increase the pressure against Russia with the help of new sanctions and various international restrictions !!!

        Uh-huh, of course
        Either Nuland was eager to come to Moscow with all her might, or the CIA director, for the first time in so many years, came to Russia. Biden ignores all the sanctions that Congress introduces. Preparing for a meeting with Putin
        And everything, it turns out, is to "put in sanctions and start a confrontation" ..?

          Have you already bought a ticket to Poland? Toilets are waiting for you ..... Or will you go into the trenches for Russian tanks?))))) It's a joke. Surely the badge with Putin is already hiding under the mattress)))))

            Or will you go to the trenches for Russian tanks?))))) Joke.

            Weird jokes ...
            Although in which case I, of course, will have to make a choice, whether I want my children to live like people. And what will I have to sacrifice for the happiness of my children.

            As for the toilets ... well, first of all, I'm an engineer. And before the invasion of fraternal peoples, he designed equipment for Rosneft and Gazprom. By the way, our developments won prizes at VDNKh. But this does not mean that I think cleaning toilets is a greedy ...

            And if we talk about Poland, then I already wrote, my nephew, who is a little over 20 works there as an electrician at a factory. For $ 1300. The boy at all!
            Prior to that, he worked (as a student) in Britain (agriculture) - 2500 euros eq. And in Denmark - he vaccinated piglets, killed patients - the same two and a half thousand euros ... even a little more

            And now, my arrogant and arrogant interlocutor, compare with how much the representatives of a great nation receive.
            And I already know this - relatives from Kursk and Kuban to Siberia, I have darkness

            Of course, we have nothing to do THERE. And of course, as for me, it's better to wash the toilets in Poland. But if you have brains, this is not necessary.

              It is not for you, with your empty head and the nature of a servant, to judge my behavior. To begin with, there are enough difficulties in Russia, but people live and most of them receive a stable income that allows them to pay bills. Everything is different for everyone. It is difficult to say that Russians are rich. We are spinning, we are climbing up the hill. LIVE! But you - you are rotting. Having sold and betrayed your Russian ancestors, having decided to call yourself Ukrainians, you became vyrus, traitors and mankurt. Therefore, your nephews and your other Ukrainian relatives will be scampering around foreign countries, being a servant for PEOPLE, including Russians. I already wrote - mykols to a construction site, halinas to bed - this is the fate of the so-called. Ukrainians - the descendants of traitors and policemen. Everything is natural. And still kneel.
              So, are you afraid of the trenches?
              About the choice - are you probably thinking of running now or betraying later? What other choice can a Ukrainian have - just run or betray. It happened so historically.

    Why only with the Crimea? They can connect with Pridnestrovie, otherwise the Romanians have already set their sights on Odessa again ...

    Having sold and betrayed Russian ancestors, having decided to be called Ukrainians, you became a vyrus.

    Reminds us of the lamentations of old grandmothers on the village bench ... about the youth who betrayed their ancestors and fled from the dung heaps to the city

    By the way, do you have this in your culture? .. burst into the house of the young, demand to observe traditions and hang an old photograph (or portrait) of the grandfather over the marriage bed of the young. With kulaks to demand that the youth be "the same", right?

    You do not stop in observance of traditions, since you value them there.

    As for the bravado about Russianness, to which you have more rights .. And you take a break from propaganda and take serious sources. Start digging into history in earnest. Just not court historians, but take serious works in your hands. At the same time, you will find out what a huge part of today's Russia did not know Russian until the 19th century. And she spoke Finnish dialects (for example, "okanie" - what is left of them)

    Curiosity about how the Slavic languages ​​developed ... where they came from.
    At the same time, decide for yourself the question: was there a "common spirit". ?

    And diving deeper. To the Golden Horde, you will find out HOW they received a label for reign ... and whether all the Slavic princes agreed to kneel before the khan ..

    In a word, the deeper you dig, the more questions arise: were we, "mankurt" how you say, what to betray? Was there a common history? And common traditions?

    And personally, I don't need a portrait of a STRANGE grandfather above the bed in the bedroom. And please do not bring us these portraits on bayonets ... we live by other aspirations.

    The Finns have departed from you. And they don't seem to miss much, do they. We want to join them
