“More Terrible Than Missiles” Weapon Joins “Most Dangerous Period In History” Trump Warning
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A forewarning new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin will receive United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on 26 April, who will arrive in Moscow that day for talks with Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, says this follows President Putin holding a lengthy phone call European Council President Charles Michel, wherein Putin brought Michel’s attention to the “irresponsible statements of the EU representatives about the need to resolve the situation in Ukraine by military means”, with Putin adding that Brussels could encourage Kiev to refrain from the “massive shelling” of Donbass and from committing “other gross violations” of international law—all of which has now been joined by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson admitting that Western colonial support may not lead to success for Kiev, and saw him revealing: “There is a realistic possibility that Russian forces could win in Ukraine”.
In a further strike back against the Western colonial powers opposed to the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, this report notes, the Bank of Russia announced that by next year it plans to have a Digital Ruble ready and capable of making international payments—an announcement swiftly followed by the Russian Ruble strengthening further against both the Euro and US Dollar—quickly after which the article appeared “In Japan, Surprise That The Yen Was Weaker Than The Ruble”, wherein it states: “The Japanese yen is weaker than the Russian ruble, the currency of the country against which “unprecedented” sanctions have been imposed”.
Quickly responding to the strengthening of the Russian Ruble, this report continues, it saw the European Union changing its tune on allowing its member states to pay for Russian energy using Rubles—a move immediately followed by the UK Treasury issuing a document that temporarily allows British companies to wire funds to the Russian Gazprombank to pay for Russian gas—then it saw the European Union announcing that it currently has no plans of introducing a collective ban on Russian oil supplies, because several EU members threatened to veto this initiative—after which Japan announced that it isn’t quitting the Sakhalin energy projects in Russia’s Far East, with their government stating: “We are concerned that if Japan withdraws from the project and the concessions are acquired by Russia or a third country, it could further boost resource prices and benefit Russia, which will not result in effective sanctions”—all of which was joined by the leftist New York Times, in their article “Can Sanctions Really Stop Putin?”, factually noting: “It is worth remembering that, although Russia’s invasion proves that economic integration is no cure for war, economic isolation is also not a recipe for peace…Sanctions are often sold as an alternative to war…But they can also be a precursor to war, as seen with the institution of the American oil embargo against Japan and the freezing of Japanese assets about five months before the attack on Pearl Harbor”.
Interesting to notice, this report details, was the leftist Washington Post observing this week: “International relations are often about choosing strategy over ideology…During the Cold War, Washington made common cause with Mao’s China — among many unsavory regimes — to put pressure on the Soviet Union”—an observation quickly followed by United States Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen stating: “We want to harm Russia, that would clearly raise global oil prices, it would have a damaging impact on Europe and on other parts of the world…And, counterintuitively, it could actually have very little negative impact on Russia, because although Russia might export less, the price it gets for its exports would go up”—a statement now followed by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz saying his country won’t ban Russian energy, with him stating: “Firstly, I do not see at all that the gas embargo would stop the war…Secondly, you are saying like we are earning from that…The point is that we want to avoid a major economic crisis, losses of millions of jobs and [shutdown] of plants that will not open against at all…This will have serious consequences for our country, for entire Europe”—all of which comes at the same time Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden comically announced that Washington will follow the lead of the European Union and ban all Russian-affiliated ships from docking at American ports—is comical because Western colonial oil traders are loading their tankers bound for the United States and European Union from Russian oil tankers at sea instead of having to use ports, and sees the Wall Street Journal factually revealing: “Oil exports from Russian ports bound for European Union member states have risen to an average of 1.6 million barrels a day so far in April, that is up from 1.3 million a day in March”.
Among the bare handful of Western colonial leaders still having a sound mind left between their ears, this report notes, is President Donald Trump, who, in viewing the devastation wrought on the world by the deranged socialist Biden Regime, warned this week that these lunatics have brought the United States “to the most dangerous period in the history of our country right now”—a warning coming at the same time articles are now appearing in America like “Food Shortages and Food Processing Plant Fires – What’s Going On?”—now it sees the American Bakers Association, whose members produce 85% of U.S. baked goods, warning about empty grocery store shelves, with them grimly stating: “We desperately need the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to take the right action to allow soybean oil stocks to shift back into food instead of being diverted to biodiesel production”—today it sees American financial experts grimly noting: “Soybean oil futures in the U.S. have nearly doubled since the start of 2021, driven in part by higher demand for ingredients to make biofuel…Prices then shot up to the highest on record after Russia’s attack on Ukraine disrupted sunflower oil shipments and set off demand for alternative commodities…Canadian canola had already climbed to an all-time high last year as devastating drought shrank crops across North American prairies…Palm oil in Asia has risen about 50% and rapeseed in Europe 55% in the past 12 months”—and in the just published Yahoo Finance article “Cooking-Oil Chaos Exacerbates a Looming World Hunger Crisis”, it’s further grimly revealed:
The world’s supply of cooking oil — already squeezed by war — is getting smaller.
Two months after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine upended global agricultural trade, Indonesia is set to ban exports of cooking oil in the wake of a local shortage and soaring prices, adding to a raft of crop protectionism around the world.
The country accounts for more than a third of global vegetable-oil exports, with China and India, the two most populous countries, among its top buyers.
Indonesia is the biggest producer of palm oil, the world’s most consumed edible oil, and Indonesia’s supply of edible oil to the world is impossible to replace.
Weather woes across the world’s major producers of edible oils are adding to fears of shortages.
Dryness has crimped the size of soybean harvests in South America, the world’s biggest producer, and drought in Canada shrank production of canola, leaving little available supply.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has thrown the trade of sunflower oil into chaos and is squeezing already tight supplies of other vegetable oils used in food, biofuels and personal care products.
In the latest example of Western colonial socialist lunacy, this report continues, this report continues, it saw United States Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland hysterically screaming that “Russia would pay an astronomical price” should President Putin order the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine—is an hysterical nonsensical scream, however, that comes against factual realities documented in the article “Against The West, Russia Has Weapons Much More Terrible Than Missiles”, wherein it notes:
Desperate attempts by the West to abandon Russian energy resources in the news firmament completely eclipsed another front, whose importance is many times greater than any hydrocarbons.
The foreign press dryly states that the world’s four leading agro-industrial holdings, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Bunge, Cargill and Louis Dreyfus, better known in the profile market under the collective abbreviation ABCD, refuse to close their enterprises in Russia and it is absolutely not worth expecting them to leave.
There is nothing surprising that no one raises a howl and does not demand to crucify American agricultural holdings that have decided to keep their business inside Russia.
Over the past years, Russia has become a leading player in the global agricultural market.
In some indicators, the Russian share is so large that attempts (as in the case of gas and oil) to destroy established supply chains can cause not even a crisis, but real famine in the whole region.
You can somehow live without phones and the Internet, but you want to eat a piece of bread every day.
Instead of bolstering and defending American food supplies, this report notes, Socialist Leader Biden announced this week that he his pouring another $800-billion in weapons into Ukraine—a demented announcement causing former top CIA analyst and station chief Philip Giraldi to angrily state: “American taxpayers should be outraged by the Biden administration’s throwing billions of dollars to Ukraine in a quarrel in which we have no actual interests at stake and in a situation which can easily develop into a nuclear war if there are any miscalculations of Russian intentions”—and in quick response to this outrageous lunacy, it saw Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova declaring: “The United States of America does not need peace in Ukraine, and the more such statements we hear, the more evidence we have to prove this…Everything the Western world is doing is poised to ensure that the situation escalates further and does not get a chance to calm down…Escalation, escalation, escalation”.
In a bitter blow against the socialist propaganda lies spread by the Western colonial powers against Russia, this report concludes, yesterday it saw the United Nations declining to support accusations by Kiev and Washington that Russia’s actions during its military offensive in Ukraine have amounted to genocide, and saw UN High Commissioner for Human Rights spokesperson Ravina Shamdasani bluntly stating: “No, we have not documented patterns that could amount to genocide”—is a bitter blow to the Western colonial powers now followed by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) gravely revealing today: “The United States intends to initiate the use of weapons of mass destruction and blame Russia for this in order to achieve the exclusion of the country from the United Nations Security Council…The staging of the use of WMD is aimed at accusing Russia of using prohibited types of weapons is being prepared, that will be followed by the implementation of the so-called “Syrian scenario”, in which the state is subjected to economic and political isolation, as well as exclusion from international organizations, including the UN Security Council”—and among whose other just issued urgent war bulletins, sees the most notable of them being:
“Operational-tactical and army aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces hit 66 military facilities of Ukraine during the night, including three command posts, 58 areas of concentration of Ukrainian forces and military equipment, as well as three warehouses with rocket and artillery weapons”.
“Russian air defense systems shot down a Ukrainian Su-25 aircraft in the Kharkov region…At the same time, a Pantsir-S crew shot down two Tochka-U tactical missiles in the air around the settlement of Chernobaevka”.
“Russian troops discovered and destroyed the fortified positions of Ukrainian nationalist units in a recently liberated settlement in the Kherson region…The positions were established in the brick building of a local high school located in the vicinity of residential properties…Nationalists also left behind ammunition and weapons, including a mortar, a grenade launcher, man-portable air defense systems and NLAW anti-tank systems”.
“During their special military operation, the Russian engineering troops seized control of a Ukrainian army arsenal on an area of several hundred hectares with depots containing thousands of tonnes of ammunition in the Kharkov Region…The depots are storing, in particular, munitions for multiple launch rocket systems with cluster warheads…In addition to Soviet-made ammunition, the depots stored Western-made mines and shells”.
“The inspection of the former base of the Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalion Azov near Mariupol led to a discovery of classified manuals — courtesy of the US Army…The documents, contain instructions on to conduct counter-insurgency and reconnaissance operations, were supposed to be destroyed to prevent them from falling into enemy hands, but Azov fighters failed to do so”.
“Soldiers and officers of the Russian National Guard provide security in the liberated territories…During the week in the south of Ukraine, units of the National Guard detained 91 participants of the nationalist movement, found 41 units of military and special automotive equipment, 2 caches…They seized 283 firearms, 30 grenade launchers, 166 hand grenades, 514 shells and mines, over 43,000 rounds of ammunition and two improvised explosive devices”.
“Mariupol resident are finally able to move freely along the streets and stop hiding from shelling by Ukrainian neo-Nazis, as the situation in the city has returned to normal…Humanitarian aid is being delivered: food, water and basic necessities…The authorities of the Donetsk People’s Republic are organising the clearing of the streets from rubble and the removal of the destroyed Ukrainian military equipment”.
“In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, the following Ukraine military equipment have been destroyed by Russian military forces: 141 aircraft, 110 helicopters, 538 unmanned aerial vehicles, 261 anti-aircraft missile systems, 2,471 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 274 multiple rocket launchers, 1,075 field artillery pieces and mortars, as well as 2,311 special military vehicles”.
