On Saturday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said restoration of Russian relations with EU nations is only possible if the bloc “sobers up from (US) bourbon.”
It’s unknown if what’s off-the-table now and for some time to come can be turned around later on.
More on the front lines of Russia’s special military operation on day 39 below.
In stark contrast to how US/NATO “shock and awe” blitzkrieg aggression rapes and destroys nations —massacring civilians and destroying vital infrastructure — Russia’s special military operation continues to proceed cautiously, according to the rule of law.
Along with pursuing key objectives explained in earlier articles, great care is take to protect all things noncombatant — notably civilians and infrastructure essential for societies to function.
From Operation Desert Storm to the Second Persian Gulf War a dozen years later and its aftermath, up to six million Iraqis died from war, related violence, disease, depravation and displacement.
Hegemon USA-dominated NATO destroyed the cradle of civilization with malicious intent in mind.
An occupied wasteland cum giant free-trade zone replaced it.
What happened to Iraq followed a pattern since WW II of inflicting devastation on target nations by US-led terror-bombing, including destruction of:
water purification facilities
sewage treatment and disposal systems
telephone and other communications
thousands of residential buildings
food processing, storage and distribution facilities
hotels and retail establishments
oil wells, pipelines, refineries and storage tanks
factories and other commercial operations
historical sites and
other non-military related targets.
Dystopian hell replaced the above, including extreme poverty, unemployment, malnutrition, starvation, repression and overall human misery affecting countless millions of victims — in one invented enemy nation after another for most of the past century.
At the same time, countless trillions of dollars were spent for aggression in pursuit of diabolical US aims — at the expense of vital homeland needs.
Throughout the post-WW II period, war on humanity genocide reflects official US policy.
War criminals remain unpunished.
MSM portray them as heroic.
Jihadists and other cutthroat killer US proxies are supported and praised by MSM press agents for mass slaughter, vast destruction and pillaging of ravaged nations.
What’s vital to know is unreported, just sanitized, state-approved fake news by MSM infested with a virtual Noah’s Ark of scam artists.
Their correspondents and columnists are awarded Pulitzer Prizes for managed misinformation and disinformation rubbish.
The shame of the nation includes numerous black site torture prisons in countries complicit with US war on humanity.
At home, Wall Street fleeces America to more greatly enrich privileged interests more than already — while class warfare targets ordinary Americans and kill shots are promoted to eliminate unwanted billions at home and worldwide.
On day 39 of Russia’s special military operation, Americans and others in the West continue to be mind-manipulated with rubbish about what’s gone on and its aims.
Here’s what Ukrainian Unian fake news reported, saying:
Fake “enemy losses” through April 2 include:
“17,000 personnel (sic)
631 tanks (sic)
1776 armored vehicles (sic)
143 aircraft (sic)
87 UAVs (sic)
54 air defense equipment (sic)
317 artillery systems (sic)
seven ships (sic)
24 special equipment (sic)
Reality is worlds apart from the above rubbish.
Russian losses have been minimal compared to Ukraine’s battered military.
On April 2, Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman General Igor Konashenkov explained the toll on Ukraine’s military to date, saying:
Overall, 125 planes and 88 helicopters, 381 unmanned aerial vehicles, 1,888 tanks and other combat armored vehicles, 205 multiple launch rocket systems, 793 field artillery guns and mortars and also 1,771 special military motor vehicles have been destroyed since the beginning of the special military operation.
Ukrainian military bases, airfields and related sites were destroyed or rendered inoperable.
MSM and other reports of Russian strikes on civilian targets are fake news rubbish.
Yet they persist with disturbing regularity.
According to the World Trade Organization (WTO), US/Western sanctions war on Russia is taking a significant economic toll.
Numerous nations are adversely affected, poorer ones likely to suffer most, said WTO director general Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
In the past month, African nations saw food prices increase by 20 – 50%, according to the African Development Bank.
Prices of other commodities also rose sharply, notably the cost of energy.
Inflation is soaring to decades-high levels worldwide.
Former UK diplomat Alastair Crooke said US/Western sanctions on Russia backfired.
These countries effectively sanctioned themselves, he stressed — while food and energy rich Russia is largely self-sufficient.
At the same time, there’s no substitute for Russian gas.
Germany and other European nations dependent on it “cannot get (it) from anywhere else.”
“I don’t see any sign that Europeans gave any thought to the strategic consequences of what (they-re) doing,” Crooke explained. adding:
European nations and their people “are going to feel a huge amount of pain.”
“Gas and electricity have gone up 50%.”
“They’ll probably go up another 100% before the end of this year.”
“How are people going to survive with this?”
Slamming the White House imposter, Trump was right saying:
“We have a (so-called) ‘president’ who has no idea what’s going on.”
“He has no idea what he’s doing.”
“He has no idea what he’s saying and where he is.”
The regime he nominally heads is wrecking the lives of ordinary people at home and abroad.
On or around April 1, Russia ceased supplying gas to “unfriendly nations” — notably to Germany and other European ones unwilling to pay for it in rubles.
Its westward flowing gas was diverted to flow in the opposite direction to friendly buyers, including China and India.
Separately on Saturday, Kremlin spokesman Peskov said the following:
“We state that the sovereignty of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics has been recognized by Russia.”
“We recognized them as independent states.”
“The operation (in Ukraine) was initiated at the request of these two republics.”
“One of (its) main objectives is to rescue these republics and restore their statehood within the borders of 2014, within borders enshrined in the constitution of both republics.”
Ongoing “tasks of the special military operation will be fulfilled” as planned.
And this from Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, saying:
“Chanel brand stores…refus(e) to sell their products to Russian nationals.”
“What’s the link between Russia’s anti-Nazi operation and the French fashion house?”
“We just opened a closet to find some well-preserved 80-year-old skeletons.”
“During World War II, Coco Chanel herself was a collaborator and a Third Reich agent.”
“(S)he was arrested at the end of the war” for collaborating with the enemy, later released at Churchill’s request.
Banned from France post-war, she moved to Switzerland.
In his book titled “Trading with the Enemy,” Charles Higham documented dealings of Chase Bank, Standard Oil, Ford, General Motors, IBM, Coca Cola, Kodak, Dow Chemical, Brown Brothers Harriman, Alcoa, and other US corporations with Nazi Germany.
The Bush crime family was involved through its connection to Standard Oil, Brown Brothers Harriman and the Union Banking Corporation.
The latter was a holding company for the Nazis and German industrialist Fritz Thyssen.
The US seized his assets for violating the Trading with the Enemy Act.
The London Guardian reported that Prescott Bush — GW’s grandfather — was involved with and profited from “companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler’s rise to power.”
He was “link(ed) to the Consolidated Silesian Steel Company (CSSC), based in mineral rich Silesia on the German-Polish border.”
“During the war, the company use(d) Nazi slave labor from concentration camps, including Auschwitz.”
Post-WW II, assets owned by Brown Brothers Harriman were seized by the US for violating the Trading with the Enemy Act.
It begs the question.
What dirty dealings are ongoing by US monied and political interests in connection Washington’s war on terror war on humanity to become known later after the fact?
Who’s gotten dirty money from the Biden regime’s sanctions war and proxy hot war on Russia?
Who’s profiting from supply chain breakdowns, soaring inflation, energy shortages, and other hardships imposed on ordinary people at home and abroad?
Who’ll benefit most from what trends analyst Gerald Celente called global war 3.0 already begun?
Who’ll make out like bandits from what he called an upcoming “economic calamity the likes of which we have never seen in our lifetime?”
Who’ll be held responsible for the highest of high crimes committed by dominant Biden regime hardliners and their collaborators?
Nobody empowered in Washington or other Western capitals.
Their ordinary people alone and others worldwide — as planned by their dark forces.
