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.)

    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.

    Demilitarization and denazification are a slow process, when thoroughly done.

    Russia is not fighting a war for territory, Russia is recovering territory lost to nazi invaders.

    Neither is Russia fighting a war of conquest, people in Kherson, Mariupol, Lisichansk, et al, are all voting with their feet.

    For Russia.

    As we write, Allied forces are 10 kms each from Kharkov and Nikolaev, closing on the latter’s Pervomaiske-Bilosirka line, along T1508. If the Allies either break of bypass these towns, Nikolaev will be in the bag.

    The main element on the attack west toward Nikolaev, was Comrade Maskirovka.

    The UkroWerhmacht was cackling all along about a counter offensive, target Kherson. They kept on kicking the can down the road from month to month, in the meantime, they were probing the Russian defenses along the Inhulets River through multiple points, Davydiv Brid, Bilohirka, Novohryhorivka, Bila Krynytsya, etc., and their reconnaissance-in-force was defeated every time. UkroWerhmacht had approx. 60 kms plus to race from Nikolaev to Kherson on naked steppe, under Russian aerial and arti attack, defeat the Allied defenses along the Inhulets River, and run for cover in the outskirts of Kherson.

    Like the fox looking at the grapes, they were not so ripe after all.

    Counting on the UkroWerhmacht hesitation and procrastination about their “offensive,” the Allied forces threatened Kyvyi Rih, UK intel told the Ukroreich the Allies next target was Kryvyi Rih before heading for Nikolaev. Instead, the Allied forces moved along the southern coastline, taking the entire peninsula, threatening the right flank of Nikolaev defenses from a southern direction.

    The advance has been so fast, some observers are afraid it could be a trap.

    So far, though, so good.

    Nikolaev administration was evacuated a while ago by presidential orders. There was also an evacuation order for civilians, not just for Nikolaev but regional, and people in many towns fought back. They refused to move. Not sure what the situation would be in Nikolaev for the civilian population.

    Final battle for Nikolaev is in the horizon, let’s get the popcorn and see what happens.

    On another note, UK “intel” announced yesterday Avdiivka will be encircled in twenty days.

    Where did they get that figure, I wonder.

    PS: Enjoy China, Amarynth.

    Thanks Lone Wolf. What will I do without your sharp eyes. Seemingly I’m still falling over my fingers with this new software. Not ‘in China’ lol.

    As I commented in the former post,

    “…Nikolaev administration was evacuated a while ago by presidential orders. There was also an evacuation order for civilians, not just for Nikolaev but regional, and people in many towns fought back. They refused to move. Not sure what the situation would be in Nikolaev for the civilian population…”

    There is an unconfirmed report in “Military Chronicle” the Ukroreich has ordered the evacuation of the population in Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia, ” almost 500 thousand people.”

    Ukraine begins evacuation of Kharkiv, Mykolaiv and Zaporizhia. Latest combat news for the morning of August 28 (17 videos)

    The Ukrainian authorities announced the evacuation of almost 500 thousand people from Kharkiv, Nikolaev and Zaporozhye – according to unconfirmed reports, it is possible to throw against the background of Sinegubov’s statements…

    However, Intel Slava Z reported the gauleiter of the Kharkiv region stating the evacuation of Kharkiv and the Kharkiv region is in preparation for a possible mass surrender in the event of an encirclement of the city or an offensive by the Russian army.

    The Kiev regime is preparing for a possible mass surrender or the evacuation of the Kharkiv region

    This was stated by the gauleiter of the region O. Sinegubov. He added that evacuation measures can be taken both for the region and for Kharkov itself, in the event of a cordon of the city or a further offensive by the Russian Army.

    If true, this means Kiev ran out of cannon fodder to throw at the Kharkiv meat grinder.

    It also means the “unconfirmed report” from “Military Chronicle” is at least confirmed for Kharkiv.

    Further digging confirmed the evacuation for the three cities was announced by the Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk.


    Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk announced preparations for the evacuation of citizens from three regions controlled by the Kiev regime.

    Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk said that the authorities intend to partially evacuate the population of the Kharkiv, Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv regions of Ukraine controlled by Kiev.

    “We know that parts – I won’t say about the whole region – but parts require mandatory evacuation. We are also preparing for it, ” Vereshchuk said on Ukrainian TV.

    Earlier, on August 2, the Kiev authorities announced the beginning of mandatory evacuation from Kiev-controlled areas of the Donetsk region. According to Vereshchuk, the evacuation of the population is due to the fact that the authorities will not be able to provide gas and electricity to local residents. The number of citizens subject to export is estimated by the Ukrainian authorities at 200-220 thousand.

    The decision on the mandatory evacuation of Kiev-controlled regions will be made by the heads of regional military administrations. According to Vereshchuk, a citizen can refuse to evacuate by signing a document on “personal responsibility for his life,” reports RBC.

    Zaporizhia and Kharkiv regions were partially liberated during the Russian special operation. A referendum on the status of the region is being prepared in Zaporizhia region.

    Since when Ukraine has been so concerned about the population of Donbass that now wants to “evacuate” them under the pretext “…authorities will not be able to provide gas and electricity to local residents.”?

    The reason is not the one stated.

    I pulled one of my old articles (July 31), debunking Zelensky’s lies and promises to the Donbass population about their evacuation, in which the clown offered them shelter, pensions, and whatever else to lure them to evacuate.

    Why did Kiev announce the “evacuation” of the population of Donbass

    President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced the forced evacuation, or deportations, of residents of the areas of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) still occupied by Ukrainian Nazis. This is nothing more than a continuation of the “scorched earth” tactics practiced by the Kiev regime.

    In his address, Zelensky acknowledged that many in the DPR territories occupied by Ukraine do not want to leave anywhere, and thus recognized the correctness of the militants who complain in numerous videos that they are “not liked and expected by Russians”in the Donbass. However, according to Zelensky, local residents will still have to leave. He promised “full support, logistical assistance and payments.”

    Deputy Prime Minister Irina Vereshchuk, in turn, began to intimidate residents of Artemivsk, Kramatorsk and Slavyansk with the lack of gas in winter, explaining this with the destroyed infrastructure, although it is known that the Cabinet simply did not include Donbass in the heating season plans.

    Kiev continues the “scorched earth” tactic, demanding that residents of the DPR leave their homes

    According to Vereshchuk, now about 220 thousand people live in the areas controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And here there are big doubts about the practical possibility of rapid evacuation of such a large number of people-Kiev constantly complains about the lack of transport to maintain passenger traffic. There are even more doubts about “escorts, assistance and payments” – those who have already arrived in the western regions complain about their absence and discrimination on the part of Galicians.

    The best explanation for why Kiev started talking about evacuation is the procedure announced by Vereshchuk: those who refused to leave must issue a written application. And then everything falls into place. On the one hand, the Nazi regime will form a base of “disloyal and pro-Russian”, and, remembering what the Nazis did to local residents in Mariupol, it is easy to imagine that it is in their homes that firing points will be located, they will cover themselves, and they will be killed by the Nazis, retreating.

    Another reason is a mobilization resource. It is known that many displaced people from the Donbass are a cherished target for Ukrainian military commissars, who drive people who have already fled the war into the trenches.

    Now we know, they are applying the same “evacuation policies” they want to use in Donbass, to other cities under threat of falling out of their control. The “evacuation policy” has another name: SCORCHED EARTH and ETHNIC CLEANSING.

    The diabolic Ukropithecus regime is using the SMO and the difficulties brought by the war on the general population to continue with their genocide of the Russian people in Ukraine.

    It is now confirmed, our favorite musicians, Wagner PMC, has taken Kodema, a key town in the way to Fortress Artemivsk (Bakhmut). Kodema is smacked in between two important access roads, T0513 and M03, providing control by fire to both, allowing Allied forces free passage to Artemivsk. Allied forces got a foothold in Artemivsk from the northeast, but the penetration has stalled, waiting for an attack to the southern flank that will threaten to encircle the town, forcing Fortress Artemivsk nazi commanders to make a decision, either “evacuate” à la UkroWerhmacht (euphemism for retreat in defeat), or die.

    Artemivsk is the southern hub for the last defense line of the UkroWerhmacht in the DPR, the Seversk/Soledar/Artemivsk line, which some observers extend toward Toretsk. M03, which goes through Artemivsk, continues northwest toward the westernmost Ukronazi fortress in the DPR, the Slavyansk/Kramatorsk compound. The UkroWerhmacht fortified Artemivsk for a long term siege, supplying it with both material and manpower resources, including a large group of mercenaries, with the intention to hold the Allied forces for as long as possible. The “holding Allied forces” idea was in combination with the so much cackled “counter offensive” that never came, which frees the Ukronazis in Artemivsk from having to die in-situ for “Glory to Ukraine.”

    There are some good news on other fronts, too.

    In the Donetsk front, the encirclement of the Avdiivka nazi war criminals continues uninterrupted.

    Allied forces fighting their way north from Staromikhailovka along the Donetsk’s Ring Road toward Pisky, are finishing the clean up of fortified areas. Same from the north with the village of Opytne and the Donetsk airport. Only eighteen days left for the final encirclement of Avdiivka, as forecasted by UK “intel.”

    According to “Military Chronicle,”

    “…The assault on the fortified area of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will follow only after the destruction of enemy reinforcements formed after the next wave of mobilization…”

    The enormous, relentless, firepower unleashed by the Allied forces on the UkroWerhmach is having a devastating effect on their morale. Following Napoleon’s dictum, “Morale is to the materiel as three is to one,” when the superior “materiel’ is in enemy’s hands, the “morale” on the receiving end of “arrivals” suffers.

    As per “Military Chronicle,”

    In the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the front, panic is growing. Separate units withdraw to the rear, refusing to follow orders from the command and being on the front line under continuous artillery fire from the Allied forces. But the Ukrainian side still has enough “manpower” to fill the gaps with the next “suicide bombers”.

    On other news, same link for the above,

    Codema is taken – cleaning is underway. Breaking news from Ukraine-August 28. Map of combat operations in the last hour (17 videos)

    “…Russia wants to create a whole type of unmanned troops in the Russian army. The Military-industrial Complex has set a task for the spring of 2023 to provide the Russian army with 1,000 unmanned vehicles. For this purpose, the United Aircraft Corporation has allocated additional capacity and received a budget. A joint design bureau with Iran has been created in Russia, which has transferred all the technologies, and in exchange the Kremlin will supply Tehran with fighter jets and air defense systems.

    The Russian army began to accumulate forces in the Belgorod and Rostov regions for the autumn campaign on the eastern front. Russia has not abandoned Operation Donbass Arc and is preparing to encircle Slavyansk / Kramatorsk in order to encircle the AFU grouping. Zaluzhny at a meeting with Zelensky opposed any counteroffensive in the coming months, the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine considers such a step hasty. For Ukraine, it is now important to save energy so as not to allow Russia to gain an advantage in a protracted war.

    Key findings from the American Institute for the Study of War: A Russian sabotage and reconnaissance group consisting of 10 people attacked a command post of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Kherson region. The Russian Armed Forces are storming the positions of Ukrainian militants north of Kharkiv. Russian units are conducting offensive operations southwest of Izyum, northeast of Seversk, northeast and south of Artemivsk, and west and southwest of Donetsk.

    The 3rd Army Corps of the Russian Armed Forces was formed, equipped and coordinated on the basis of the 333rd Combat Training Center in Mulino. The corps is formed mainly from volunteers from all over Russia and is equipped with the latest equipment at the moment: T-90M and T-80BVM tanks, BMP-3 model 2015 with additional protection, Tornado-U protected trucks, etc., and the fighters are armed with AK-12 machine guns model 2020 and are protected body armor 6B45 series 2020.

    Another version on the taking of Kodema, plus additional news.

    Units of the Allied forces established control over the Kodema near Artemivsk

    “…As reported, on August 27, 2022,” musicians ” from the Wagner PMC finally liberated the village of Kodema, currently a sweep is underway on the territory of the settlement. Kodema is a key village on the way to Artemovsk (Bakhmut), and it will be very difficult to take the city without its control…
