Russians are not happy. Complete withdrawal from Kherson is considered a defeat. The Defense Ministry explained that it wants to avoid unnecessary losses among its forces and spare the lives of civilians.
Escobar says: “Let’s cut to the chase.
In the eyes of Russian public opinion, this is a major DEFEAT.
Russia is losing RUSSIAN territories.
The ones responsible are among the ones who planned the SMO.
And now the MFA wants…negotiations!
When Russia is in a weakened position.
Everything may start to change in December – of course. Armageddon is no slouch.
But as it stands, Russia seems to be hobbled by political and military IMPOTENCE.
Because since the beginning, back in February, the Russian Armed Forces have NOT been presented with the necessary means to fulfill their mission.
This is as serious as it gets.”
Putin will join next week’s G20 world leaders’ summit in Indonesia IF situation is possible, or he may ask to join summit VIRTUALLY – Indonesian President Widodo.
Zelensky’s spokesperson says Ukrainian President will attend G20 summit, most likely in online format. (He is not a member even!)
I’m looking forward to this transcript as this was a seminal meeting! Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Foreign Minister of India Dr Subrahmanyam Jaishankar had these as main agenda topics:
trade, investment, transport, logistics;
using national currencies in mutual settlements;
prospective energy projects, particularly on the Arctic shelf and in the Russian Far East.
An exchange of views on topical international issues, focusing on interaction within the #UN, the #SCO, #G20, #BRICS and #RIC.
In the joint news conference after the meeting ended, these were Lavrov’s key points:
The Taliban will be made aware of the topics discussed at the Moscow format consultative meeting on Afghanistan, which is scheduled for later this month
Russia and India discussed joint weapons manufacturing efforts
A minimum of 12 nations are interested in joining the BRICS economic bloc
Moscow has hope that determining the criteria for admitting new members into BRICS will not take a long time
Anyone that wants to comment on the US mid-terms may of course do so. I just ask you to keep an open-minded and multi-polar approach because this is getting less and less important.
This is my comment:
Easy, stop printing money, close your costly 800+ military bases, pay off your debts for the next 300 years and live a more humble but peaceful life in coexistence and respect with other nations. Problem solved. (Similar wording is making the rounds in the crypto circles – specifically because LBRY lost the court case that the US brought against it, and one of the most popular free platforms, Odysee, runs on the LBRY platform – RT and many others use Odysee because so far, they have not deleted content and taking part in cancel culture – early days here to see what happens).
And dear God! Save us from another round with Trump.
Trump just called Nancy Pelosi an animal 😂… Great democracy!👍pic.twitter.com/ccbX9hWJHp

This is being very widely reported.
Ukraine is center of far-right EXTREMISM, and West is helping Kiev prepare a “dirty bomb (https://t.me/IntelRepublic/7545)”, if situation is not stopped it will be a DISASTER, and US and UK recruiting international TERRORISTS to participate in hostilities on side of Ukraine – Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev.
UPDATE: US is studying potential areas of conflict in Central Asia, adjusting digital maps for the use of precision weapons – thus the “partnership” on information security, imposed by the US threatens the sovereignty of the Commonwealth of Indepent States (CIS) countries.
I have not found the formal discussion. No doubt it is there, is is just that I have not found it – he must have given a speech or produced a paper or an interview somewhere.
I have a problem to get into the Kremlin site at the moment – cannot access it with or without VPN, Same with MoD which usually I can get into with a VPN.
News from the Ukraine .. Kiev is dark – more and more talking about evacuating all.
Zelenski’s Telegram channel has just lost 30% of subscribers
Russian forces wipe out seven command posts in Ukraine operation . https://tass.com/politics/1533255
There are more and more reports such as this from RT:
Top White House official held undisclosed talks with Russia
“According to US and allied officials interviewed by the newspaper, Sullivan has been in touch with Yuri Ushakov, a foreign policy aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and with Nikolay Patrushev, who heads Russia’s Security Council. The aim of the talks has been “to guard against the risk of escalation and keep communications channels open” rather than to discuss a peace settlement for the Ukraine conflict, officials told the Wall Street Journal.”
No, they don’t want a peace settlement, they only want Zelenski to have better optics … To make-believe that he (or the US) is willing to enter into negotiations.
Pepe Escobar has an interesting update:
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE
By my friend Peter Koenig in Geneva, former WB and WHO, who knows the Western institutional system inside out:
“When both Scholz and von der Leyen, two Germans, were chosen to destroy Europe, beginning with Germany, they were indeed vetted for months by the neoliberal hegemons in Washington and Pentagon /NATO.
When eventually they qualified, they started lying and cheating the European people, with energy shortages, food shortages – imposing energy saving program despite the fact that German gas tanks are full to 94 % the most they have ever been in the last 5 years…
But all went well so far, since the dumbfounded European public went along. But the German industrialists didn’t go along.
They didn’t go along since a while and made semi-secret pacts with Moscow. But destroying their country economically is now going too far.
As you said, they now control Scholz; they now call the shots, no longer the WEF, or Brussels, at least not on Germany.
And Scholz with his little disguised record of high corruption especially as mayor of Hamburg… was kind of easy to turn around.
The “goodies” he may expect form the German industrialists sound for sure more realistic than the for the faltering empire.
The 25% concession of the Hamburg port to China, was a first step – a sign that Germany was ready to sign up to the New Silk Road, the BRI, the same as did Italy and Greece with Piraeus.”
I am not sure that Germany will form a multipolar entity in the short term. The whole place will need to be combed through like with an old fashioned lice comb, to get all the lice out of their society.
