Pro-Kremlin political scientist named the date of the probable start of the war in Ukraine

In view of the growing tension on the border between Russia and Ukraine, many experts predict the imminent start of hostilities between the two states. Sergei Markov, a Russian pro-Kremlin political scientist, also shared his thoughts on this matter.

The likely time for the start of the war is January 20th and early February 2022. The Olympic Games in China begin on February 4

- the expert noted in his telegram channel.

Markov's assumption is based on the fact that during the start of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, Georgia, with the support of the United States, committed a provocation and unleashed a war in South Ossetia. And in 2014, during the Sochi Olympics in Kiev, with the assistance of Washington, the "Maidan" and the seizure of power were organized. At the same time, Moscow was focused on the Games and did not intervene in the critical events of those days - the calculation of the United States was fully justified.

This time, not wanting to upset its strategic ally in the person of Beijing, the Kremlin can again withdraw from active operations and lose sight of its southern regions. It is noteworthy, according to Sergei Markov, that the US intelligence is just talking about the possible start of an armed confrontation between Russia and Ukraine precisely in the 20th of January of the coming year.

    The trend is likely. The West does not like to change the rules of the game if they helped them before. 22.01.2022/5/02.02.2022 - this is exactly XNUMX twos, which was in the predictions. It is quite possible and XNUMX.

    Provocations, they are. There are few fools in Ukraine either.
    And that Ukraine will attack Russia is unlikely.

    Everyone has forgotten that according to the May calendar, people on Earth are no longer there. The calendar is over. It won't be fair if nothing happens. Two Jews decided to carry out a scam, but they failed. Both are on the train platform, one runs back and forth and pulls the hair out of his head. The other hand is in his pockets. The one that pulls the hair on the head of the second, who keeps his hands in his pockets - why don't you pull your hair out. The one with your hands in your pockets - are you sure I'm not tearing my hair?

    Well, in fact, the United States and their Tapaks are preparing the world in advance for declaring Russia the aggressor. Everything is the same as in previous times. And the United States will boycott the aggressor Olympiad in advance. Everything is like in military textbooks.

    And the fact that it will FORCE Russia to act by attacking the LPNR? Do you play this chess? Or is it not enough for you 7 years to understand that this is possible7
