US/Western created and supported Nazified tyranny in Ukraine is a festering sore in Europe’s heartland.
Russia’s SMO intends to expunge the malignant tumor that masquerades as a nation state — in support of returning peace and stability to the continent for the first time since the Obama/Biden regime’s 2014 Maidan coup in Kiev.
Commenting on the threat posed by Ukraine on Friday, Sergey Lavrov said the following:
In stark contrast to restoring peace and stability to Europe’s heartland — what Russia has forthrightly supported since the US coup in Ukraine — Kiev follows diabolical orders from its higher power in Washington.
Its regime wants to “join the European Union” an alliance that operates in similar fashion to NATO, Lavrov explaining:
“(T)he EU transform(ed) (itself) from a constructive economic platform as it was conceived into an aggressive belligerent player that announces it has ambitions far beyond Europe,” adding:
According to European Commission president von der Leyen — a militant Russophobe, a menace to European peace — the EU should be actively involved in the Indo/Pacific, along with hegemon USA.
She and likeminded extremists in Europe aim to operate the EU like NATO — with waging forever wars on two fronts in mind, likely with nukes ahead.
Separately on Saturday, Vladimir Putin spoke to his Finnish counterpart, Sauli Niinisto, at the latter’s request.
According to a Kremlin readout:
Russia’s president “shared his assessment of the state of the negotiation process between Russian and Ukrainian representatives, which has been de facto suspended by Kiev, which has not shown interest in a serious and meaningful dialogue.”
Putin also warned Niinisto that abandoning Finland’s traditional neutrality would be a major mistake — notably at a time when his nation faces no external threats.
Joining NATO will also adversely affect bilateral relations with Russia.
Years of “neighborliness and partnership cooperation” will be erased by the move, Putin explained.
Niinsto, in turn, said that he’ll decide in days on the issue of Finland joining NATO.
As a previous article explained, Russia will respond appropriately to a move that threatens its security if Niinsto agrees to join the war-making alliance.
Sweden appears set to abandon its longtime neutrality in similar fashion.
These and similar moves heighten the risk of global war by accident or design.
Nations bowing to hegemon USA’s will jeopardize their security in the process instead of the other way around.
Separately, Russia’s Defense Ministry explained that its forces continue to degrade Ukraine’s battered and beaten military more than already.
Overnight, Russian forces struck five Ukrainian command posts, two weapons depots and scores of Nazified thugs, eliminating them.
Six more Ukrainians UAVs were destroyed.
In response to repeated cross-border attacks by Ukrainian forces on Russian territory, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the following:
“First and foremost, this is a situation that indicates the necessity to introduce additional measures to strengthen security in regions bordering Ukraine.”
According to Belgorod Region Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov, cross-border shelling by Ukraine damaged 17 houses, six cars and injured a 14-year-old boy.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, General Dmitry Konashenkov, earlier warned Kiev that if cross-border strikes continue, Russian forces will strike the regime’s decision-making centers, including in and around Kiev.
It begs the question. Why haven’t these centers been targeted and destroyed by now.
What is Russia’s Defense Ministry waiting for?
Actions by Kiev follow orders by dominant Biden regime hardliners.
They’re indifferent to the lives and well-being of Ukrainian military personnel and civilians.
I respect the aim of Russian forces to focus on military targets alone, wanting harm to Ukrainian civilians and nonmilitary infrastructure avoided.
At the same time, all-out efforts should be made to smash Kiev’s war-making capabilities as effectively and swiftly as possible.
That includes elimination of of Ukraine’s decision-making centers wherever they’re located.
There’s no doubt about the successful outcome of Russia’s SMO in Ukraine.
The sooner it’s concluded, the more lives that will be saved, along with less destruction to already battered Ukrainian territory.
A Final Comment
On Saturday, Russia halted electricity supplies to Finland, a statement saying:
“(W)e are forced to note that for the volumes which have been sold on the Nord Pool exchange since May 6, funds have not yet been credited to our bank account.”
“We hope that the situation will improve soon and the electricity trade with Russia can resume.”
According to Finland’s vice president of power systems operations, Reima Paivinen:
“(L)ack of electricity imports from Russia will be compensated for by importing more electricity from Sweden and by generating more electricity” internally.
Finland is shooting itself in the foot by abandoning decades of good relations with Moscow — as pressured by hegemon USA.
Helsinki also relies heavily on Russia’s natural gas.
Moscow hasn’t indicated if it’ll halt deliveries if Finland joins NATO.
Clearly they’ll be halted if Helsinki fails to pay for what’s supplied.
Reporting on a halt of Russian electricity to Finland, NYT fake news reinvented reality as follows, saying:
“Russia is using energy as a weapon (sic)” in response to the prospect of Finland and Sweden joining NATO (sic).
Not a word by the Times of nonpayment by Helsinki since May 6 — why Russia halted electricity supplies.
It’s another example of how the Times reinvents reality on all things related to US invented enemies.
And at the same time, it repeatedly lies to and mass deceives its readers.
Featuring fake news, what they need and deserve to know, the self-styled newspaper of record suppresses.
