With attribution to a good friend for the above title, conflicts by any other name require unrestrained swinging to triumph.
It’s well intentioned to try minimizing harm to civilians and infrastructure they rely on.
At the same time, the worst of pure evil Russia faces in Ukraine operates by its own degenerate rules, ignoring the rule of law.
As orchestrated and directed by Pentagon and CIA elements — including on the front lines — anything goes is how Ukrainian forces operate, especially Nazified ones.
Calling them “nationalists” by RT and other Russian media conceals their Nazified evil.
The same goes for RT calling the Obama/Biden regime’s 2014 Maidan coup in Kiev a “revolution (sic).”
The only thing revolutionary about what happened was replacing democratic rule in Ukraine with Nazi-infested tyranny.
Winning the battle of Ukraine is vital to demilitarize and deNazify the country.
It’s to help long-suffering Donbass residents be free at last from the scourge of Nazified occupation and related brutality.
Re-democratizing Ukraine by helping its people become free from US-controlled tyrannical rule is likely another unstated aim.
Based on Russian and Donbass sources, analyst John Helmer believes that the Kremlin’s plan includes the following:
Transforming Ukraine into “a loose confederation in which the controlling regions will be the eastern Russian-speaking, Orthodox regions of Kharkov, Lugansk, Donetsk, Zaporozhye, Kherson, Nikolaev, Mariupol, and Odessa.”
“They will be run by newly installed administrations and locally recruited security forces, both controlled by Russia.”
“Dniepropetrovsk, Poltava and Kremenchuk are likely to be part of this federal alliance…”
If formed, the above confederation “will be strong enough to win the next Ukrainian presidential election, replacing (US-controlled puppet) Zelensky” and his regime once and for all.
Kiev’s future is “undecided.”
Russia’s plan does not include “the breakup of Ukraine” or accession of Novorussia.
It’s a plan “to keep Ukraine broken” by reforming the country — henceforth to be controlled by its eastern, largely Russian-speaking people.
It’s a plan to smash Ukraine as it now exists, replacing it with an independent nation state, freed from the scourge of US control as a platform for endless proxy war on Russia.
According to military analyst Andrei Martyanov, so-called US “advisors” on the front lines are directing Ukrainian forces, notably their Nazified ones.
Telling them to use civilians as human shields, these (Pentagon and CIA) advisors “cannot win a single war even against” invented enemies with greatly inferior military power to what the self-styled indispensable state claims to have.
Martyanov noted that on Saturday, Russian-intercepted radio communications between Nazified forces in Mariupol’s Azovstal steel plant revealed their hopeless situation.
Lacking food and water, their choice is surrender or die.
In response to permission demanded from Kiev authorities to choose the former over the latter option, they were threatened with execution if refuse to fight to the death.
By this standard, either way they’re dead.
Most likely what remains of their ranks will lay down their arms and hope for the best when taken captive by Russian forces.
It can happen at any time in the coming hours, days at most.
At that time, Mariupol, Donetsk will be free at last from the scourge they represent.
As for captured remnants of Nazified forces in the city, they’ll be treated as POWs according to Fourth Geneva principles.
Ones responsible for torture and/or other atrocities will be prosecuted by a Russian War Crimes Tribunal.
Ones convicted of war crimes will be imprisoned longterm.
Their days of viciously terrorizing victims are over once and for all.
The same goes for foreign mercenaries and US/Western elements directing them.
Geneva Conventions do not consider them legitimate combatants.
They’ll be tried as war criminals.
Payback is long overdue behind bars doing hard time.
Russian forces already captured US, UK and other military personnel.
They’ll be held accountable for crimes of war and against humanity too grievous to ignore.
At the same time, a final battle to liberate what remains of occupied Donbass territory is imminent — likely to begin in earnest when Mariupol is fully freed from the scourge of Nazified occupation.
In stark contrast to MSM fake news about Ukrainian forces holding their own and counterattacking Russian troops, analyst Larry Johnson noted the following:
“Russian military units, missiles and aircraft are moving freely around Ukraine.”
Videos show “thousands of Ukrainian military personnel surrendering and leaving behind large caches of NATO supplied weapons.”
Even US/Western MSM now admit that Russian forces virtually won the battle for Mariupol.
Stopping short of acknowledging that the near-liberated city is a major development, they’re silent about Ukraine’s certain defeat in the weeks ahead.
It’s just a matter of time.
