NYT: The Pentagon considered the toughest scenarios in the Ukrainian conflict

The series titled "Leaked Secret Documents" continues to provide Western media with material for publications. The New York Times spoke about the analysis of the consequences of four different scenarios in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. According to the American edition, the most "wild" scenarios of actions of the parties to the conflict were considered in the secret documents.

Hypothetical scenarios include the deaths of Russian Presidents Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian Presidents Vladimir Zelensky, a leadership shift in the Russian Armed Forces, and a Ukraine strike against the Kremlin.

– writes NYT.

According to the publication, the document examines how each of these scenarios could potentially lead to an escalation in Ukraine, a negotiated end to the conflict, or not have a significant impact on its course at all. The likelihood of a negative scenario developing after a hypothetical Ukrainian strike on the Kremlin deters Washington from supplying long-range weapons to Kyiv.

The Biden administration was particularly concerned about a possible strike on Moscow by Ukraine because it could provoke a sharp escalation from Russia. The danger of such an attack from Ukraine is one reason the United States has been reluctant to provide Kyiv with longer-range missiles.

- says the publication.

The Washington Post has made its contribution to the story about the secret Pentagon documents leaked to the Web today. In its article, the newspaper reported that the leak of secret documents was one of the reasons for the delay of the Ukrainian counter-offensive.

    With the death of Putin, the Komsomol elite accompanying this figure will fall. And the new generation of politicians from his environment knows nothing. Even if they conceive something there, then the output will be something like the NWO and the Gorbachev putsch.

    Each scenario is well paid, and the more of them, the one will guess, and therefore there are no limits to the imagination of their writers. The US concern about a possible strike on Moscow or other industrial centers is justified, the question is whether it will be possible to contain Ukrainian strategists - there is a war going on, and a strike on large industrial centers is no more difficult than a strike on other territories of the Russian Federation - Donetsk, Makeevka, Kherson, Belgorod, Bryansk, Tula, Rostov on the Don, and if they hit the parade in Moscow on May 9, Ukraine and the whole world will applaud and call for reconciliation on their own NATO terms

    The danger of such an attack from Ukraine is one reason the United States has been reluctant to provide Kyiv with longer-range missiles.

    Therefore, the United States is assisting in the promotion of "Ukrainian long-range missiles", such as - "I'm not me and the rocket is not mine."
    On assassination attempts - the West, shooting at Lenin, hoped to bring Trotsky to power, but Stalin came.

      The West, shooting at Lenin, hoped to bring Trotsky to power, but Stalin came.

      Lenin was shot by the Eser-ka in 1918.
      What does the West have to do with it?
      What did the West then generally understand in revolutionary parties (there were more than one, surprise?), especially in their leaders?
      Do you understand the leaders of the party?

      On November 29, 1917, the Central Committee of the RSDLP (b) created a four leaders to resolve urgent issues, which Sverdlov entered along with Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin. Soon Sverdlov became the second person in the state after Lenin and concentrated colossal power in his hands ...

      Chairman of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee (the formal head of the RSFSR) in November 1917 - March 1919. In August-September 1918, after the assassination attempt on V.I. Lenin, he was the acting chairman of the Council of People's Commissars of the RSFSR. Chairman of the commission involved in the development of the Constitution of the RSFSR of 1918. The first and only chairman of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the RCP(b).

      While Lenin was being treated, Sverdlov categorically refused to elect an interim acting chairman of the Council of People's Commissars and personally performed his functions, working in Lenin's office and signing documents for him, and also held meetings of the Council of People's Commissars

      So it turns out that Kaplpan opened the way to Sverdlov's autocracy.

      But you probably only know about Sverdlov that Yekaterinburg was renamed in honor of him ...

      According to the official version, he fell ill with the Spanish flu while returning to Moscow from Kharkov (he left Kharkov on March 6, 1919). Returned to Moscow on March 8. The fact that he was "seriously ill" was reported on 9 March. He died on March 16, 1919.
