The West's refusal to guarantee Russia's security forces Putin to resort to unorthodox measures

All sane people on both sides of the Ukrainian-Russian border did not have time to breathe a sigh of relief after the “fatal” date of February 16 had passed, and the events within the framework of the most acute stage of the Ukrainian crisis created by the West, as they say, broke the brakes. What's the matter? Indeed, contrary to the assurances of the British tabloid, the “cold sky over Kiev” was never torn apart by Russian missiles and combat aircraft. The troops are returning to their places of permanent deployment, the process of recognizing the republics of Donbass is clearly beginning to “slip”, risking turning into a hopeless enterprise. As they say, what more? What else needs to happen for the "collective West" to recognize its stories about the "imminent invasion" for what they really are - a stupid fiction, a lie, a fake?

Apparently, the main evidence - the complete absence of any aggressive actions on the part of Russia against the "nezalezhnaya" - is not enough for him. In addition, Kiev, strongly urged on from across the ocean, immediately began to do everything possible to completely nullify any possibility of reducing the degree of tension. Donbass exploded with shelling, and Vladimir Zelensky made a number of statements that leave no room for doubt about the intentions of the Ukrainian side regarding the implementation of the Minsk agreements. At first glance, all this looks as if the West and Ukraine, playing the role of its obedient puppet, are confidently playing the game, leaving Russia absolutely no room for maneuver and choice, imposing its own agenda and its own algorithm for the further development of the situation. But what if it isn't? Let's try to figure it out.

Everything goes according to plan?

To make such an assumption is based on quite certain actions of the Kremlin. And, above all, that they do not show the slightest signs of nervousness, haste and attempts to "keep up" with events. There is an obvious adherence to some very clearly calibrated and carefully worked out plan of action. At the same time, each next step is extremely difficult to calculate based on the previous one. On February 15, the State Duma calls on the president to recognize the independence of the DPR and LPR, which immediately causes an explosion of “righteous anger” both in Ukraine and in Washington and Brussels. However, on February 16, the withdrawal of Russian troops begins, which participated in the exercises in the territories of those regions where their presence terribly disturbed NATO headquarters and the editorial offices of British tabloids.

An unexpected "response" to these actions is a sharp escalation of armed confrontation on the "line of contact" separating Donbass. A more than expected reaction was immediately followed by statements from the West that there was no “de-escalation” at all, on the contrary, there was a “build-up of Russian military forces directed against Ukraine” and “intensification of their activity.” The US Embassy in Kiev unhesitatingly places the blame for the shelling of Stanytsia Luhanska (about which there are a huge number of questions) not even on “separatist forces”, but directly on our country, without hesitating to use expressions like “Russian shelling”, “monstrous violation of the Minsk agreements” and the like. At the same time, Volodymyr Zelensky, who has seized upon the next microphone, openly declares that these same agreements are “drawn up mediocrely” and they put “nezalezhnaya” in a “definitely losing position”.

Also, the clown president clearly and unequivocally says that he does not intend to conduct any direct negotiations with the DPR and LPR, with the exception of specific issues of the exchange of prisoners. That is, more than frank confessions are heard from Kiev in a categorical refusal to follow the path of "Minsk". The agreements there are trying to once again either “rewrite” or simply break them, in order to then seek the conclusion of new ones - obviously, “talented” and “profitable”. Against the backdrop of all this bacchanalia, Dmitry Peskov’s words that Russia’s recognition of the independence of the LDNR “certainly does not correlate with Minsk” sound not very inspiring. Some people have already hastened to declare these words “surrender of positions” and “refusal of recognition”. But I would not rush to conclusions. For some reason, everyone forgets that on the same day, February 16, the Investigative Committee of Russia opened a criminal case and began an investigation, the basis for which was the discovery in the Donbass of five mass graves of civilians, allegedly killed by Kiev punishers in 2014 . But this already smacks of the extremely unpleasant wording “genocide”, the very one that, it seems, it was no coincidence that Vladimir Vladimirovich sounded from the lips of Vladimir Vladimirovich the day before - and precisely in relation to the events in the Donbass.

Grounds for open intervention? Why not. If so, then it is prepared competently and thoughtfully. Well, to top it all off, Russia, instead of trying to convince the “collective West” of its own “innocence” and “non-involvement” in the next round of escalation in the East of Ukraine, on February 17 puts forward, in fact, a new ultimatum to it. This, of course, is about Moscow's official reaction to the "counter proposals" of the United States and NATO on security guarantees, published the day before. We will analyze this interesting document in more detail below. For now, I will only add to the list of unexpected steps taken by the Kremlin the expulsion from our country of Deputy US Ambassador Bart Gorman. What a twist!

Putin "swings the pendulum"

Indeed, it is precisely such an association, willy-nilly, that arises. Especially - taking into account the KGB past of our president and his passion for martial arts. Let me remind you that the unique art of “swinging the pendulum”, which made them almost invulnerable and invincible opponents in fights with and without weapons, is attributed to the operatives of the legendary SMERSH. If we discard all sorts of fictional prettiness and obvious inventions, the essence of this technique is to perform not just multidirectional movements, but, more broadly speaking, unpredictable and non-standard actions that make for the enemy an assessment of a rapidly changing situation, if not impossible, then at least extremely difficult. And you know what? Against such an enemy as the Americans, who suffer from an incredible pattern of thinking and actions, as well as an increased tendency to act according to once and for all fixed schemes, it is precisely such tactics that should be most effective. Break the pattern, unsettle, make you nervous and, ultimately, force you to act in the way the enemy "programs" it. Perhaps the key to defeating the overseas "hegemons" lies precisely in this?

Let us return, however, from the fascinating topic of martial arts to the dull geopolitics. Although, it is quite difficult to call what is happening in this area today boring. The documents handed over by Moscow to Washington and Brussels, which are a continuation of the discussion on the topic of providing our country with effective security guarantees, can be described in any way, but not as compromise or, even more so, capitulatory. Russia does not abandon any of the points of its extremely tough position that are rather painful for the West, does not deviate from any of the "red lines".

Despite all the statements of our “sworn friends” about the “unacceptability” and “excessiveness” of the claims put forward by him, our country continues to stand firm on its own. The United States is still ordered to clear both Eastern and Central Europe of its troops, not to mention the Baltics. The North Atlantic Alliance, whether it likes it or not, must return to the balance of power of 1997. There can be no question of any acceptance of Ukraine into its ranks, not only in the short term, but in general in any future. Georgia also concerns, as well as all other "post-Soviet republics". All accusations regarding the "annexation of Crimea" and "unleashing a conflict in the East of Ukraine" are swept aside, in the harshest form. "Maidan" is called a coup d'état supported by the "collective West". The question of the status and ownership of the peninsula is "closed" and is not subject to discussion in any form.

Moscow accuses its opponents of not bothering to give a single constructive answer specifically to the fundamental, key points of its security proposals. Hypocritically talking about "readiness for dialogue", Washington and Brussels tried to "pull" from the fundamental and well-thought-out document only those points that they "liked" from the point of view that the West decided that negotiations on them would be comfortable and not burdensome. Moreover, according to Moscow, the unfortunate “negotiators” have made every effort to “twist” and distort even these points in such a way as to get more benefits and advantages for themselves if they are put into practice. In a word, they declared their readiness to consider the obverse without the reverse and the right without the left.

It is not surprising that after such a devastating characterization of the response she received, our country reminds the US and NATO of the "package nature" of their proposals. By this, it is more than transparently understood that it will still be necessary to fulfill them, whether willfully or not. And in the very, that neither is in full, and not "in pieces", and even exactly the opposite. Like it, don't like it, but you have to endure it. And handsome men, and beauties, and everyone else... Moreover, the emphasis is on the fact that such an approach simply forces Russia to take appropriate response measures. As specified for the very slow-witted - "military-technical nature."

What conclusion can be drawn from all this? First of all, the fact that all the desperate attempts of the “collective West” to reduce the process of global “reformatting” of our world initiated by Russia to a single “Ukrainian crisis”, and even to make our country the guilty party in such, cannot be called successful. Moscow is stubbornly returning its opponents to completely different levels of problems, threats and challenges. By the way, regarding the continuously sounding demands for “de-escalation” and “withdrawal of troops from the Ukrainian border”, the answer was also given quite clearly: “This is our personal matter, our sovereign territories, and we do not intend to discuss our actions on them with anyone. You can not set ultimatums regarding the “toughening of sanctions” - it will not work.”

Moscow categorically insists on the fulfillment of its key requirements, reserving the right to the most stringent retaliatory actions in case of further attempts to apply any "educational measures" against it. Apparently, before us - the beginning of a new round of combat. The "pendulum" will swing more than once, giving the West surprises that are not at all pleasant for it.

    There is logic. We have to take the time. But in the Donbass it is necessary to decide in our favor. Sanctions / not sanctions anyway. Donbass is energy, these are our Russian people who are in trouble and we are obliged to help them. If it is not possible to return all of Ukraine to our world at once, then at least in pieces. If God and the Light are on our side, then everything will work out bit by bit.

      Why is this Occam's razor shoved everywhere where it is necessary, where it is not necessary?

      I will duplicate my comment from February 14th.

      Albert Einstein formulated the principle of "Occam's razor" as follows: - "Everything should be simplified as long as possible, but no more"! .

      A constant, simplistic - primitive approach to business often leads to degradation, and the impossibility of solving complex problems.

      And one more thing: - "Occam's razor" was invented and was originally used as proof of the existence of God - as the simplest explanation of everything that exists.

      Which, in fact, makes this methodological principle completely useless and has nothing to do with real scientific knowledge, because. there are thousands of examples where the "simplest" explanation will not be the most correct.

    Paper results summed up. We remained in our positions. There is nowhere to retreat.
    The Americans will continue to tighten the "noose" around our necks from the countries that are aggressive to us and their strike infrastructure. Plus - the war in Ukraine and the new Chernobyl.
    Next are two options:
    1. Play by their rules. Catch up and overtake the Americans by forming our "noose" at their borders from countries aggressive to them and shock infrastructure. I think it's too presumptuous. In addition, it does not solve the problems of the war in Ukraine and the new Chernobyl for a long time.
    2. If the first option is impossible for us, then we must admit that, alas, the critical situation for us has only worsened. Time is working against us.
    The only option left to us is to BREAK the Americans, force them to retreat.
    In my opinion, this can only be done by a real threat of nuclear war, and as a last resort - by the war itself.
    In this situation, any of our words about peacefulness and commitment to diplomatic methods is a blow to the effectiveness of this only solution left to us

    Why are European state entities afraid of Russia?
    Because opposite each of them, it is huge and has a combat-ready army.
    Repeated attempts to conquer it ended in failure. Therefore, today all forces are aimed at undermining the economy, destabilization and separatism.

    The main evidence of the aggressiveness of the Russian Federation is the reunification of the Crimea and the war in the Donbass, which would have been impossible without the full support of the DPR-LPR from the Russian Federation.
    Everyone understands this, because Ukraine demands not so much a revision of the Minsk agreements themselves, but to indicate in them the first point of control on the border with the Russian Federation. Where this leads is clear.

    The desire of Ukraine to become part of the “West” for the Russian Federation means a threat, because Russia has always been and remains a potential threat and enemy for the “West”.
    The current level of development of capitalism needs natural resources, which the Russian Federation possesses in full range and in fact in unlimited quantities. This spurs the aggressive aspirations of transnational associations, overwhelmingly Anglo-Saxon, whose interests are promoted by the governments of Western state entities and various international political, economic, legal, environmental and other organizations.

    The task of SMERSH was to filter the population of the temporarily occupied territories, who had left the encirclement and former prisoners of war, to identify among the population those who collaborated with the invaders.
    Even many years after the end of the war, all questionnaires included the question of the presence of relatives who were in captivity and in the temporarily occupied territories. All this information was processed and compared, discrepancies were checked and suspicious ones were taken into account. No cinematic romance, ordinary office paperwork - requests, answers, checks, etc., and given the territory and the population living on it, hundreds of thousands and millions of prisoners, post-war relations with former allies in the anti-Hitler coalition, the task becomes clear and the role of SMERSH. After its abolition, the functions were scattered among personnel departments at enterprises and institutions, housing maintenance offices, passport offices of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, etc.

    Let us return, however, to the designated topic - the provision of effective security guarantees to our country.
    There will be no guarantees, it was obvious to everyone from the very beginning.
    In this regard, the question arises why, then, this demand was put forward and why not yesterday or in the future, but today.
    How could such demands have been put forward earlier if, as Vladimir Putin said, representatives of Western intelligence services were in all strategic defense enterprises?
    Why not later? Because the United States is working on the creation of similar weapons and is testing them. Vladimir Putin said that we know when they will have it.
    Therefore, today is the time to present a demand for the provision of security guarantees for the Russian Federation for the future.
    The demands are so radical that there is no question of their acceptance by the USA. To this, Vladimir Putin said that in case of refusal, military-technical measures would be taken.
    It is obvious to everyone that there can be no deployment of Russian military bases in threatening proximity to the United States - in Cuba, Venezuela or anywhere in Central and South America.
    Aviation and navy do not change the strategic alignment, and space is under close control.
    The most realistic assumption about a possible military-technical response of the Russian Federation was made by Y. Kedmi in an interview with Solovyov's program - a preemptive massive strike with precision weapons on NATO military bases in Europe.
    This can be done by sea, air and land-based means, and from different directions, which, if it does not completely destroy the NATO infrastructure, will greatly reduce aggression.
    Then the question of a possible invasion of the Russian Federation into the territory of Ukraine will lose all meaning.
    Apparently realizing this possibility, the USA members are trying to provoke a full-scale war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine with its full support from NATO, the potential of which, as V.V. Putin said, greatly exceeds the Russian Federation, but one should not forget that the Russian Federation is one of the largest nuclear powers. This is precisely what guarantees that Russia's preventive strike with precision-guided conventional warheads against NATO military bases in Europe will not develop into a full-scale nuclear war.
    Vladimir Putin's meeting with the Minister of Defense and the head of the Foreign Ministry showed who and when will give the go-ahead to the military-technical response of the Russian Federation in the event of NATO's refusal to provide legally justified security guarantees to the Russian Federation - when Sergey Lavrov completely exhausts all the possibilities of his department

    The world is gradually changing.

    In a joint statement from the Élysée Palace on Thursday, France and allied nations announced they were withdrawing troops from Mali due to a breakdown in relations with the ruling junta after nine years of fighting jihadist rebels.

    The sale of the Motherland must be carried out at an accelerated pace! That's all non-standard methods!

    Envy is a terrible feeling Steelworker. Even Schroeder found a job in Russia, but you tell you there is no work in the Russian Federation. Apparently you like to do demogogy here and blame everyone for your problems.

    If Ukraine launches a massive offensive, then the likelihood of a retaliatory strike from Russia will be very high
    Which will lead to colossal losses on the part of the Ukrainian army and probably the collapse of the country in the future

    because With each new "necessity" to postpone the date of the Russian invasion, the United States is losing reputation and trust, and as for those media that support this circus performance, time plays against them in this mode. For Russia, on the contrary, the longer it does not attack, the more obvious the question becomes - why? If you wanted to, would you attack or what? What is Russia waiting for, people all over the world ask themselves. And they find answers - they keep saying something about some kind of Minsk agreements. And what is it? It means that they are not going to attack, and they say that they are not going to. And the United States is hanging noodles on our ears. Here are the bastards.

    This means that the United States will increase pressure on Ukraine. It is useless to increase pressure on Russia. Well, really, how to imagine it? Donbass is being shelled, and Russia suddenly withdraws its troops on a large scale, when, after just one mention of the end of the exercises, they tell it that they have chickened out.

    The Western narrative is so clumsy that one can already assume that the explosions in Lugansk and Donetsk will be declared a Russian provocation in order to have a reason for the invasion. But there will be no more invasion. Their lies will come out again. They will score more and more own goals. In addition, it is very difficult for them to maintain something sane, tk. almost everyone who has to speak in front of the press is degenerate or simply very far from the topic. They get confused, they come up with outright nonsense on the go. The "flight control center" in the United States is simply not able to quickly give everyone the right narrative, answers and explanations for this or that, some media themselves begin to invent their own fables out of purely commercial interest. Taken together, it all looks like a big ugly fake, the further the worse.
    Now is a very good time to draw the attention of Western societies to the fact how ugly they are being manipulated by thinking they are zombies. So they probably act on other, purely domestic topics?
    And after that they think to pass off the Ukrainian invasion of Donbass as a Russian invasion of Ukraine? This will be the number.

    the essence of this technique lies in the performance of not just multidirectional movements, but, more broadly speaking, unpredictable and non-standard actions that make for the enemy an assessment of a rapidly changing situation, if not impossible, then at least extremely difficult.

    Movements, actions, a rapidly changing situation...
    How far these words are from reality. All movements take place in the media and are produced by the authors of the texts. Yes, politicians say different words. Oh, how much they talk! And then there are the eyewitnesses. And also commentators. They defeated Russia and the United States many times and in a variety of poses.

    But in reality, we are all waiting and training our imagination.
    Everyone but me. I do something - I examine forecasts and predict the ultimate truth.

    Movements, actions, a rapidly changing situation ... All this is chaos, controlled chaos, created and supported by various kinds of media in the interests of some states, groups of people, etc. And it follows that there can be no plan A, nor Yu. It can only be a goal that is being achieved at a given time, at a given time, under specific conditions, with constant adjustment. Or they pretend to get it. We seem to be at the stage of testing how far the enemy is ready to go in realizing their goals.

    One more thing. Have you ever wondered why mattresses do not excite North Korea, Iran. And from the fact that they can get on the top of their heads. What if. And they drag us like the last. They do not believe from the experience of recent years that we are on to something able to answer. Great nuclear power. We can't force the Balts to shut up. Otherwise, we'll be lost.

    I wrote in the 15th year that the LDNR should be recognized, but analyzing these 8 years, I understand why now. The author is right: Ukraine will be cleaned and sifted for Bandera grains. There will be a trial and a severe punishment of the Russian Law with the general hatred and contempt of the working people. 8 years ago we could not do this, Putin did Petrels, Daggers with Vanguards and Poseidons. Now Kharkovites, Cossacks and Odessans - your word and our recognition ... think where to go.
