SMO Update and extended comments – hypothesis

We have Shoigu saying that Russia is going slow. It is clear yes, Russia is going slow. But that does not mean that Russia and the Allied Forces are making no progress. Progress is consistent.

Russian Army conducts offensive actions near Petrovka in the direction of Kharkov, East Ukraine.

In the Avdeevka direction, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are making their way through Ukrainian defenses in the Pervomaisky area, Pervomaisky, Kharkov region, East Ukraine.

Towards the Southern direction, Russian Army units continue assault operations in the Tavrichesky district, Kherson region, South Ukraine.

Refer the RuMod reports:

The Ukrainians are busy with terrorism attacks now. They have nothing else, no great breakthroughs, no winning battles, no progress, nothing to report. Only a slow process of becoming irrelevant and the gathering of scavengers and vultures to feast on the dead carrion.

What is more visible is that Russia is winning the political war. Cast minds back to the end of last year, when Russia presented 3 proposals to NATO, the EU and the US, in order to reset a balance of security as NATO took just one final step too far and Russia was threatened. The collective west shrugged their shoulders.

Now, take a step forward to today.

Sanctions: As far as Russia is concerned, sanctions did some damage but what it did more noticeably, is to split the wheat from the chaff and most countries in the world decided to ditch the dollar and ditch their relationships with the collective west. The “anti-Russian” front at the UN is busy collapsing. Only 55 countries out of a total of 193 voted against Russia’s intervention in Ukraine. Africa, Asia, Latin America choose Moscow and leave Europe alone in the winter ice. The 55 countries include for example Tuvalo, population 11,792.

European resistance: Europe is not only falling apart with no hope for winter energy, but they are again begging for talks, anything will do. The mystique of the brave Ukrainian soldier is tumbling. The idea that has been put forward by cretin leaders that their citizens must ‘suffer for the Ukraine’ is losing its romanticism. Spiegel launched its own investigation and found out that Ukrainian military superiors mostly enriching themselves. The reports from mercenaries are gaining visibility in the western sphere – selling weaponry on the black market, sexual offenses, robbery, and killing of civilians. What is left of the Ukrainian army is beginning to be referred to as the Army of criminals.

Russia is of course winning in the energy markets as well and what I consider currently as an interim step in a newly constructed global economics system, is moving apace. Watch this space for details.

The US is still making money but this will come to an end. We’ve reached the stage where the jackals want to move in, and the looting process on a governmental level is being planned.

I want to state a hypothesis and state that the timing of the many comments that Europe cannot any longer provide the Ukraine with weaponry, is by design.

They want to start the looting phase.

This is part of Russia’s ‘go-slo’ strategy, as Russia will not let the looting happen the way it is planned. And the sheer idea that Russia will prevent these jackals from taking their war loot, gives them nightmares. This is the shock therapy planned for a post-war Ukraine. (Yes, they still think in terms of a post-war Ukraine.) The therapy calls for cutting labor laws, “open markets,” drop tariffs, deregulate industries, and “sell state-owned enterprises to private investors.” So, if Russia destroys all of those state-owned enterprises, how will the jackals get their loot?

To support this hypothesis, two presentations follow. One by Ben Norton of Multipolarista, and one by Eamon McKinney. The west prepares to plunder post-war Ukraine with neoliberal shock therapy. In his article accompanying the following video, he names the countries that stand ready to loot under the guise of the July 2022 Ukraine Recovery Conference, which was held at Lugano, Switzerland and jointly hosted by the Swiss and Ukrainian governments:

  • Albania
  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Cyprus
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Estonia
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Ireland
  • Iceland
  • Israel
  • Italy
  • Japan
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Liechtenstein
  • Luxembourg
  • Malta
  • Netherlands
  • North Macedonia
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Republic of Korea (popularly known as South Korea)
  • Romania
  • Slovak Republic
  • Slovenia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • Türkiye (formerly known as Turkey)
  • Ukraine
  • United Kingdom
  • United States of America
  • Council of Europe
  • European Bank for Reconstruction and Development
  • European Commission
  • European Investment Bank
  • Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

So, there we have it. We can now put country names to Zone Collective West or the hegemon, or the ‘democratic bloc’ or the wannabe masters of the Universe. Turkey or as they want to be called now, Türkiye, is a black swan in this group.

Eamon McKinney in an article called the Planned Plunder of Ukraine presents a similar scenario.


Western Europe is soon to experience a long cold winter. Food and energy shortages together with uncontrollable inflation will bring home the reality of the true cost of war. It will hit hard a continent that has largely experienced uninterrupted peace and relative comfort since 1945. Even the most “virtuous” of Ukraine’s early lovers are reconsidering their stance. Including many of the Western leaders who have come to inescapable conclusion that Russia is winning the war and the Ukrainian military are in an impossible position. Cracks are appearing among EU member countries who generally didn’t like each other to begin with. Politicians will soon have to answer citizens who will want answers to why they are fighting Russia and why they have no heat. Whatever support for the war they had at the beginning, that it seems has largely drained away. Yet for them, or rather their masters, all is not lost.

Expect the China Bad cries, and flare ups of tensions (e.g., Serbia) to continue as this looting process must be hidden underneath a supposed “Ukraine Recovery Conference”.

(If you think the China Bad meme is not destructive, refer Rubio yesterday: “…. we need a military that is focused on taking out Chinese aircraft carriers” – and the audience hollers and claps and cheers. Taylor-Greene a few days ago: “… mass deportation of Chinese people who aren’t “loyal” enough to the United States”. How do you measure this loyalty and how is sociopathic warmongering different from having to wear a yellow star during the 2nd WW? The focus has changed to totalitarian fascism against China while this Ukrainian ‘reconstruction’ needs to be hidden.)
