Ten factors of the approaching big war in Ukraine

Patrick Lancaster, a former American military man and now a blogger and journalist who has visited Crimea and Donbass, predicts that a big and “hard” war awaits Ukraine, which will begin “soon.” As a justification for the hypothesis, he cited 10 factors in his Telegram channel that indicate the approach of these tragic events.

Ten events reported this week make me think Donbass could soon be drawn into a major war

- says the publication.

1. The day before it became known that the American embassy in Kiev "requests the evacuation of personnel" amid fears of the outbreak of war.

2. Washington accused Moscow of preparing a provocation - a "false flag attack" that would serve as a pretext for an "invasion."

3. The US Embassy in Kiev reported that the Americans delivered to Ukraine a consignment of weapons, including ammunition, with a total weight of about 90 tons.

4. Washington pledged to transfer Mi-17 helicopters (Russian production) to Ukraine under the Excess Defense Articles program. Previously, they planned to transfer them to the authorities of Afghanistan, but now this is impossible.

5. The self-proclaimed DPR accused Kiev of preparing a provocation - a "terrorist attack under a false flag", which will serve as a pretext for launching an offensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass.

6. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the people regarding the Crimea and Donbass, in which he expressed his conviction that "very soon" there would be a "restoration of the country's territorial integrity."

7. Almost all Western countries recommend their citizens not to visit Ukrainian territory and make statements that the Russian Federation may soon launch an invasion of Ukraine from different directions.

8. London sent 30 of its elite military and 2 anti-tank weapons to help Kiev.

9. US President Joe Biden threatened Moscow with a "catastrophe" if it "invaded" Ukraine, believing that "Russia will inevitably attack."

10. There have been reports that employees of the Russian embassy in Kiev and the Russian consulates in Ukraine, as well as their families, have been evacuated or should leave Ukraine one of these days.

This week, negotiations in the Normandy format will be held in Paris with the participation of advisers from the Russian Federation, Ukraine, France and Germany. Perhaps this is the only thing that can keep the region from another war. We can only hope this helps

He summed up.

    The ten events reported this week make me think that the Donbass may soon be drawn into a major war.

    It's funny. In fact, these are words that an attack on the Donbass will take place. Not to Ukraine, but to the Donbass.

      Wanted to write the same. All 10 points indicate that Kiev is preparing a provocation against the Donbass. And, in the very near future.
      There is another factor. 11th. According to some reports,

      - At the Boryspil airport, as people in the know say, the president's plane and the planes of the top of the country are "under steam".

        These ten points speak of the stupidity of the one who composed them. But the 11th point is out of competition). Whoever came up with it is just a genius. Planes are ALWAYS parked at Boryspil airport. The board of the president and the planes of the top of the country - what are they? Funny.
        If anything, then Zelensky (and his woman) will be evacuated by American marines. THIS was promised to him, and THIS is exactly what the Americans will do in any case.

    Ten factors of the approaching big war in Ukraine

    - It's strange - and everything is so "decorative and noble" ...
    - Some ten points ... - you can add ten more sub-points - and twenty more, and so on ... - and all about the war "about Ukraine" ...
    - Yes, why the hell and who needs this Ukraine today???
    - Who needs this Ukraine??? - Only "clown Zelensky", who very well plays the role of "distracting" from real problems ... and very successful in this field ... - And our guarantor joined this simple role - the role of proclaiming patriotism ... - One patriot - and another patriot ... - Just what the Americans and the Chinese need ...
    - Dog each other further - and do not pretend (and this is already for our guarantor) - and do not meddle in "other politics" ... - Or rather, just pretend that you are trying to change foreign policy ... - And there then we will decide with China what to do with you ... - maybe - "we won't stab painfully", or maybe we will continue to use it ...

    No wonder recent studies have shown that at least 85% of the population of Ukraine supports Russia and is waiting for liberation from the Nazi-fascist regime. Although those Bandera authorities in Ukraine and the Nazi shortcomings are invigorating showing reverse figures. But the hour of the tribunal over the Nazis is near, and this frightens them.

      In fact of the matter. Ukraine has a pro-American regime and a puppet in the role of president. It's like obvious things. But they are legal from the point of view of world law. Therefore, they grind what they want on behalf of the people of Ukraine. And these henchmen generally do not care about the numbers, as well as about Ukraine itself and these stupid so-called. Ukrainians. They are afraid of the Tribunal, and they are simply afraid, but the Americans promised Zelensky (they will take away his woman and possibly other lackeys) evacuation under the cover of the Marines (or koitki, what the hell is the difference) in which case.

    The media just want to eat...

    It’s not about raising prices to write .... in Omerik. And about the blood.

    To do this, a Telegram blogger does not even need to leave a cozy Internet coffee or sofa.

    Simpler readers and viewers always love horror and gore

    The puppeteers are paying the puppet to create a new hotspot away from America and strengthen the weakening dollar. An old but well developed script. They will attack the LNR and the DNR. But everything will be cloudy and provocative. And it is bound by double standards so that it is not clear who started it first. And after all this, there will be nothing left but to protect the Russians in these republics. And in fact the war will be unleashed by the Americans for the sake of strengthening the dollar.

    Bluff. Biden, answer Putin in writing to his ultimatum on each item, indicate in writing the reason for the refusal on each item. This will be published everywhere, taking into account the peculiarities of your press. Otherwise, Putin will state his reasons for your refusals, but later. Why pull?
