Can Ukraine stand against Russia?


The special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine has been going on for nearly two months now. The shock of the first days after its beginning has long passed. The Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard did not run away, but began to offer fierce resistance. President Zelensky and his entourage make one Russophobic statement after another, while the Ukrainians themselves increasingly believe in victory over Russia. How could this even be possible with such unequal initial forces?


I remember that shortly before the start of the JMD, many journalists, bloggers and military experts were enthusiastically counting how many tanks, guns and aircraft the RF Armed Forces and the Armed Forces of Ukraine had in service, without giving the latter the slightest chance. Far-sighted people back then warnedthat the Ukrainian army will not accept a direct battle against the Russian one, which has an advantage in aviation and offensive weapons, relying on defense in cities that will be turned into fortified areas. And so it happened. The fact that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are trying to act as precisely as possible, avoiding unnecessary casualties among the civilian population and the destruction of the infrastructure of Ukraine, seriously hinders the effectiveness of offensive operations, but the reason that the NMD is being frankly delayed lies elsewhere.

Says Moscow


It is with great regret that we have to admit that in the current situation there is a large share of the responsibility of the Russian leadership. From the very first days after the start of the SVO, all top government officials stubbornly insist that the purpose of the special operation is not to overthrow the regime of Vladimir Zelensky, who is still considered the legitimate president in the Kremlin. At first, the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, said something about holding the Ukrainian “elites” accountable, but then this topic was not developed in Moscow and was quickly forgotten. Moreover, as a result, they want to sign some kind of peace agreement with the regime of President Zelensky (and with whom else?).

The very goals of the NWO - demilitarization and denazification - remain as abstract as possible. It is completely incomprehensible how exactly Ukraine can be demilitarized, if the NATO bloc has already begun to supply Kiev with heavy weapons and even aircraft through Poland. Nothing is clear about denazification either. How can it be carried out at all without the occupation of Ukraine, which the Kremlin stubbornly denies?

The topic of the subsequent state reorganization of Ukraine disappeared somewhere from the agenda in the negotiations. Nothing is heard either about the federation, or about the confederation, or about the possible accession of the regions of the former Independent to the Russian Federation. Residents of the territories already liberated from the power of the Kiev regime are terribly afraid that the Russian troops will leave after the end of the NMD and the second Bucha will repeat.

Is it any wonder that President Zelensky, whom no one is going to either overthrow or persecute around the world later, calmly takes drugs and makes one Russophobic statement after another? What is he to be afraid of? Neither Zelensky himself, nor his pocket propagandist Alexei Chupa Chups Arestovich, nor those bastards who torture Russian prisoners of war and urge them to be castrated are not afraid.

"Peace" = weakness


Unfortunately, this extremely vague position of Moscow, reinforced by the constant statements of "talking heads" like Medinsky or Peskov, is perceived by the partners in the negotiation process as a weakness. And this entails very serious consequences.

At first, after the shock that the Western world clearly experienced due to the massive missile and bomb strikes of the Russian Armed Forces on Ukraine in the early days of the NVO, the NATO bloc moved from words of support for Kyiv to real actions. Deliveries of heavy weapons to the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already begun, it is reported that the Air Force of the Independent will receive combat aircraft to replace those that were destroyed by Russian troops. This means that as long as there is an open border with Poland, there can be no talk of any demilitarization of Ukraine at all.

Secondly, Brussels openly supported Kyiv, making a number of encouraging statements about the possibility of an accelerated entry of Ukraine into the European Union. Recall that before the NWO, the maximum that shone the Square was the “European association” and the endless standing in the waiting room of the EU.

Thirdly, the United States and its allies, convinced that Moscow was not really ready to demolish the criminal regime of Zelensky, introduced a package of the most severe sanctions against Russia in history, in which we even surpassed Iran.

If the Kremlin's position on Ukraine had been tougher from the outset, it is possible that our country would not have half of these problems now.

Information war


The most annoying thing is that Russia lost the information war to Ukraine and its curators to smithereens. While ordinary Ukrainians are being brainwashed with aggressive Russophobic propaganda, specially trained people from the other side are actively attacking, clogging the information space on social networks with their fakes. The selectivity and pinpointness of the actions of the Russian troops is presented as their weakness. Video footage of combat losses of the RF Armed Forces is being savored. To our great regret, real mistakes are being used against us, which greatly damage the image of the country. Ukrainians make fun of the death of Russian warships - the large landing ship "Saratov" and the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet - the missile cruiser "Moskva". The withdrawal of troops from the Kiev and Chernihiv regions is interpreted by Ukrainian propaganda as their defeat and flight. Now a lot will depend on how things go in the Donbass.

And against the backdrop of all this, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, begins to publicly excuse the so-called cultural figures who are so ashamed of their "aggressive" country that they hurried away to their historical homeland in Israel. Other domestic “liberda”, which no one needs either in the West or even in Israel, now freely mocks in Runet over the problems of the country of which it is a citizen.

All in all, this is sad. But with all the negativity from what is happening, there are also positive aspects: everyone finally dropped their masks and showed who they are. Who will win the war between Russia and the collective West on the territory of Ukraine? The one who will show a great will to win and will not deviate from his principles one iota.

    So what?
    The same denification and demilitarization, which 2 months ago delighted everyone in articles, is now disliked. Or did she suddenly change somehow?
    Or questions of common sense remembered?

    Relying on cities is an axiom, even Serdyukov cut everything and dragged it to the cities.

    That the West, whenever possible, gets rid of surpluses of old weapons is also an axiom of capitalism. (we have similar posts too)

    To excuse "the so-called cultural figures" is also an axiom, OWN.
    It’s not about the teachers of the LDNR to write, worry, strangers in the class. Maybe you met somewhere about this? How many students? How many entered universities? Where? what salary? Not?
    About the oligarchs, then generally keep quiet. And their TAM enterprises worked to the last, they wrote. And shut up, downstairs...

    Sanctions? for the first time that-whether that will be surprised? Korea, Iran, Venezuela - only the last and big ones. Kototo thought the cakes would be sent?

    Well, yes, you can write well if you are sitting in greenhouse conditions and none of your children are fighting in Ukraine ... our President is doing everything right and there is no need to panic, have patience ... everything will be brought to the end and all tasks will be completed! No one wants unnecessary sacrifices ... but Europe will get its own ...

    If we continue to fight in the same way as we fought for two months, it may calmly happen that in the end we will have to retreat, at best we will get into a positional war of the level of what has been since the age of 14, with all sorts of Minsks, Istanbuls and so on.
    The point here is not how tough or not tough the Armed Forces or the Kremlin started the operation. The thing is that the operation was completely unprepared. No one calculated what is happening now, and for two months now it has not been possible to rethink everything and understand what to do. The whole operation so far rests on the courage of the fighters on the front line. Soon they will really get tired and they will get tired of everything.
    in general, if you want to hear even tougher words, you should probably read Strelkov. I really haven’t read it for two weeks now and I even try not to glance at his posts, because I understand that he is most likely furious from what is happening.

    I read the memoirs of one diplomat about the conflict on Damansky Island. So, he talked until the Chinese diplomats began to knock on the door and beg, and only then our army ceased fire. That was the diplomacy. And now, now negotiations, now a truce, and our government cannot understand that this is seen as a weakness of Russia. On Ukrainian channels, they generally choke with joy with saliva. Doesn't anyone report anything to Putin? After all, crests really believe that "they will soon take Moscow." Nobody talks about truces, humanitarian corridors, about refugees. Stop doing this humanism!! As long as crests don’t break in the door, there’s nothing to talk with them, not even to listen to. Bomb, bomb, and bomb again!!!

    Well, what kind of defeatist mood?
    The commander-in-chief clearly explained the situation that Ukraine had plans to attack the Donbass, as well as the territory of Russia. Russian soldiers are fighting in Ukraine not for Ukraine, but for Russia.
    Now the worst situation is, the main trained backbone of the Nazis is being held hostage by eastern Ukrainians (ethnic Russians) in their fortified areas.
    After the liberation of Donbass it will be easier.
    There are different elites in the Russian authorities, listen less to representatives of the "non-negotiating" elite (Medinsky-Peysk).

      If these Medinskys and other representatives of the fifth column were just talking, then one could simply not listen to them, but with their negotiations they caused more grief than even the most successful counter-offensives of the Kyiv regime.

    Verbiage, indistinct mutually exclusive statements, strange moves, ignoring obvious threats, hushing up miscalculations, bungling - do not inspire optimism and do not strengthen faith in victory. And the clarity of purpose and the determination of the leadership to bring the operation to its logical conclusion are very necessary, both for our soldiers and people, and for the population in the territories liberated from the Nazis. Don't play with cars, gentlemen! Although what else to expect, we have seen enough, heard enough for more than 20 years.

    It seems that people from another planet have recently arrived. Neither the collapse of the USSR was caught, nor privatization, nor the execution of the Armed Forces in the 93rd, nor the re-election of Yeltsin after all this in the 96th. After all, we pump gas through Ukraine, but they do not block it! Capitalism... And militarily, everything is more or less normal so far. It could have been much worse. And there is no need to refer to Girkin. After all, he then surrendered half of the DPR at once, and now there is the coolest fortified area there. And it's not just the government that's to blame. We all live in this country, we allowed it, so we deserve it. Of course, I don't want Minsk-3, or even worse. I really don't want to! But if ... Then you have to wipe yourself off! We are not the USSR, and sometimes we have to answer for our sins with shame. And now endure and help, who than can!

    The main thing is that the Russian people do not spit in the back of our army, as in the 90s in Chechnya, and so the victory will be for us.

    Ukraine can resist, but the authorities cannot. Stalin said about Germany - Fuhrers come and go, but the people of Germany remain. So it will be with Ukraine. The Fuhrer of the Nazis will leave, but the people will remain.

    I agree with the author on one thing - the vagueness of the goals of the war ... but the author concludes that the goals of the war are the tearing away of part of the territories of Ukraine by military means, the establishment of either Russian or pro-Russian power there, and even better - the overthrow of the Ukrainian government in principle ... well , and then criticism of the actions of the authorities begins based on the goals voiced by the author ...

    But these are the author's conjectures .. I agree that there were obvious mistakes at the beginning of the operation and I'm ready to start bending my fingers. I also don’t think that even now everything is going “as it should” .. But let’s still return to what the authorities themselves said ...

    The announced goal - "demilitarization" does not mean depriving Ukraine of weapons, but means depriving Ukraine of its offensive potential against Russia. First of all, this concerns nuclear weapons, missiles, biological weapons, groups on the border with Russia. This minimum target has already been reached. Not completely, but to a large extent.

    The second announced goal - "denazification" has been achieved to a lesser extent, but in the liberated areas the Nazis will no longer be in power. It is possible that formations like the LPR and DPR will be created there, which can later become part of Ukraine, or maybe they will create another Ukraine like the Novorossiya project .. We can assume that this goal has been partially achieved.

    These are all topics for discussion, but I want to draw attention to the fact that if the goals of the operation were to eliminate the immediate threat to the Russian Federation, then this has already been achieved, and we still don’t know how the future will be formatted ...

    Moreover, in many ways, the future depends not on military success or failure, but on the processes in Europe, which has slipped into a severe crisis without a chance for a quick recovery. Pumping weapons to Ukraine is a matter of 1-2 years, but the lack of historical prospects for Europe in the coming decades is already an obvious fact. And this will affect the situation in Eastern Europe much more than the results of certain military operations .. As well as the policy of local authorities .. As well as the borders in Europe ...

    On the territory of Ukraine, the West will win. Therefore, there should not be such a territory as Ukraine.
    As long as there is Ukraine, there will be constantly snooping around Bandera, right-wingers, fed and incited by the Anglo-Saxons. This time.
    As long as there are Anglo-Saxons, somewhere in Europe there will still be Ukraine in one form or another.
    Without the denazification of the Anglo-Saxons, a real victory is impossible.
    Only by destroying the spoiling Englishwoman and her slanderers, Russia will be able to move on to a calm peaceful development.
    I could, if not for the fifth column in Russia itself.
    There is an extreme lack of a statesman of Stalin's level.

      "There is not enough Stalin" - - it's the same as "there is not enough smart Tsar".

      And where will he come from? Stalin was the leader of the VKPb. That is, in fact, there is not enough VKPb. And where will she come from? It was created by the same Lenin, who is still not thrown out of the Mausoleum....

      Or maybe just a society that 31 years ago in peacetime was pleased with its country due to the fact that goods from warehouses were not delivered to stores --- something is missing in their heads?
      Then it's bullshit. It's not curable...

    if you declare the goal "mode shift", then you have to shift the mode. Does this mean taking Kyiv with battles, then Lvov? So that at the end the regime fled to Poland. It is very dangerous to bind yourself by voicing goals that you may not achieve. Hopes for the Ukrainians themselves, who want their liberation from the regime, are unfounded. Not that Ukrainians believe the regime's propaganda. They hope for help from the West after the war. They hope that if you cut off your arm, then your leg, and all for the sake of "accept me into your ranks, look what I'm doing for this!", then the West will certainly be forced to repay their self-sacrifice with huge benefits. Accession to the EU, hundreds of billions of euros in aid. While such moods, climbing into this zombieland is simply contraindicated.

    Russia has already taken control of what needs to be protected. Regime change means the restoration of Ukrainian statehood. Namely, Ukrainian statehood is now being called into question. The state of Ukraine rests solely on infusions of Western money, just enough to support the state apparatus. The rest of the economy is in free fall. The salaries of the army, which is also part of the Ukrainian state, are already being stolen by the regime itself. This is not the mode that is able to live in such extreme conditions. All of its components are corrupt, inadequate officials. Everyone thinks only about how to have time to provide for themselves, while there is still an opportunity. After all, whatever one may say, the corrupt system will come to an end after the war. Or does someone there believe that the West will pump up the corrupt system with huge amounts of money? And in order to keep such a huge country afloat, huge amounts of money are needed. And this is in conditions when the West itself is in crisis.

    It is the end of hostilities that worries the West most of all - after all, then economic problems, including in Ukraine, will begin to fill the agenda. Ukraine will demand money. Give me money, everything is destroyed. The economy is destroyed. Of money. Of money. But the regime is one corruption, a black hole. Take government into your own hands? Utopia.

    The fact that Ukraine is NOT occupied by Russia creates a huge problem for the West. Sooner or later, the very West will benefit from the disappearance of Ukrainian statehood. Chaos, anarchy, where to send money. But for this they will have to help this statehood to disappear, to become a misunderstanding, something indefinite, illegitimate. This applies to Zelensky personally. Zelensky, as president of Ukraine, after the end of the fighting will be a problem for the West. Ukraine will be without a coast, without eastern regions. Everyone will be waiting for help, restoration, Western money. And the regime will remain the same inadequate, corrupt. Another issue of neo-Nazism will also manifest itself more clearly. All this will fall on the head of the EU, which will have to deal with all this in addition to its own economic problems.

    LPR and DPR as part of Bandera Ukraine, are you serious? As long as the Nazis are considered heroes, monuments are erected to them and streets are named after them, there is no talk of denazification.

    It is necessary to beat them (Natsiks, Bandera) until they are completely destroyed, this is the main thing! And then to overthrow the Zelensky drug addict regime, then to choose an adequate president of Ukraine, etc.
