Russia Proclaims: “The Great Game Has Ceased To Be A Game—It Has Become Total War”
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 assuring during the Sochi meeting this morning that the Russian economy in the new conditions will remain open in spite of the Western colonial sanctions imposed over the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, with him stating: “Under the new conditions, the Russian economy will certainly be open…Moreover, we will expand cooperation with those countries that are interested in mutually beneficial partnership…A whole range of issues is important here…This is organizing convenient payment infrastructure in national currencies, establishing scientific and technological ties and, of course, increasing the capacity of logistics chains, increasing their efficiency, and creating new routes for cargo transportation…In recent months, the strategic significance of this work has increased significantly”, says this assurance is joined with these sanctions boomeranging on the Western colonial powers to such an extent the Russian Ruble just hit a new seven-year against the Euro.
In viewing the wreckage wrought on the Western colonial powers at the hands of their own socialist leaders, this report notes, it caused International Monetary Fund director Kristalina Georgieva to warn: “The global economy is facing its biggest test since World War II”—a warning followed by Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev factually explaining that socialist Western leaders have only themselves to blame for the destruction of the global economy, with him stating: “While hiding their actions behind the human rights, freedom and democracy rhetoric, they push ahead with the ‘golden billion’ doctrine, which implies that only a select few are entitled to prosperity in this world”.
Being kept from the knowledge of the greater masses of Western peoples, this report continues, is that their socialist leaders have long been engaged in “The New Great Game” to seize the vast mineral wealth of Central Asia— a vast continental area Sir Halford John Mackinder, one of the founding fathers of both Western geopolitics and geostrategy, called the “Heartland of the World” in his seminal work “Democratic Ideals and Reality: A Study in the Politics of Reconstruction” published over 100-years-ago—over the past century has caused two world wars and countless other conflicts, including the present conflict in the East European nation of Ukraine—all of which were ignited because Western colonial policy makers in America and Britain have followed Sir Mackinder’s maxim: “Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island; who rules the World-Island commands the world”.
The Great Game has ceased to be a game. It has become total war, though a hybrid one so far, since the armed conflict in Ukraine is not of a full-scale nature at present.
However, the danger of it intensifying towards a direct collision not only exists, but is increasing.
Russia‘s very existence is under threat. The country has to take serious measures to ensure it survives.
The United States and its allies have set much more radical goals than the relatively conservative containment and deterrence strategies used toward the Soviet Union.
They are in fact striving to exclude Russia from world politics as an independent factor, and to completely destroy the Russian economy.
The success of this strategy would allow the US-led West to finally resolve the “Russia question” and create favorable prospects for victory in the confrontation with China.
War is always the most severe and cruel test of durability, endurance and inner strength.
Today, and for the foreseeable future, Russia is a country at war.
Upon the issuance of this official proclamation declaring that the Great Game has become “total war” and Russia is now “a country at war”, this report notes, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov outlined the new geopolitical strategy of Russia with the statement: “Now that the West is taking the position of a dictator, our economic ties with China will grow even faster…In addition to direct income to the treasury, this will give us the opportunity to implement plans for the development of the Far East and Eastern Siberia…The majority of projects with China are concentrated there. This is an opportunity for us to realize our potential in the field of high technology, including nuclear energy, but also in a number of other areas”—a statement swiftly replied to by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin, who stated: “We highly appreciate the corresponding statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov…As he pointed out, Sino-Russian relations have withstood the new tests of the fickle international environment and have always maintained the right direction of progress”—and were statements that followed an armada of Russian and Chinese strategic nuclear bombers joining together to over fly the Asian Pacific region in a show of force in the area Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden was meeting with other Western colonial leaders.
On 12 May, this report continues, Great Game mastermind Dr. Henry Kissinger granted a rare interview to warn “We are now living in a totally new era”—a warning this Noble Peace Prize winning globally renowned 98-year-old statesman joined with his explaining that the worst possible outcome for America was seeing Russia and China joining together—a warning followed yesterday by Dr. Kissinger telling the World Economic Forum that Russia had been an essential part of Europe for 400 years and had been the guarantor of the European balance of power structure at critical times, and European leaders should not lose sight of the longer term relationship, and nor should they risk pushing Russia into a permanent alliance with China—saw Dr. Kissinger directly telling the Western colonial powers “Ukraine must give Russia territory” and warning “The conflict with Russia must end in two months or it will spiral out of control”—a warning joined by top Republican Party lawmaker US Senator Mitt Romney calling on NATO to prepare for Russian nuclear strikes, with him grimly stating: “We should imagine the unimaginable, specifically how we would respond militarily and economically to such a seismic shift in the global geopolitical terrain”—all of which was followed by President Donald Trump posting the warning message yesterday: “I never thought, in my wildest imagination, that the United States would be involved in a Nuclear War…Now, however, because of our leaders rhetoric and very poor choice of words, it is perhaps more likely to happen that not. Russia/Ukraine would NEVER have happened under a TRUMP Administration…Now there are fewer cards to play, but still very playable. China up next?”.
In the latest example of the Western colonial powers ignoring the grave warnings issued by Dr. Kissinger, this report concludes, today the Ministry of Defense (MoD) reports that NATO member Denmark will provide an unspecified number of US-made Harpoon anti-ship missiles and launchers to Ukraine—a report quickly followed by American defense experts noting: “The Harpoons don’t do anything to solve Russia’s submarine anti-ship capabilities or its anti-ship missile capabilities that absolutely dwarf Ukraine’s, even with the Harpoons, and those of NATO, for that matter…The Black Sea is one of the densest anti-ship missile engagement zones on earth, and Russia is the player with the preeminent arsenal with many types of anti-ship missiles deployed on its ships, coastal areas, and aircraft”—as more people in Ukraine by the day demand to know why they haven’t heard from their sons and fathers, yesterday it caused Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy to admit that 87 soldiers died last week in a Russian strike on a barracks housing troops—but whose true and devastating toll of Ukraine military deaths is daily documented in the urgent war bulletins issued by the MoD, whose most notable latest ones include:
“Russian missile and artillery troops eliminated about 700 Ukrainian military sites in the past 24 hours striking 84 command posts, 463 areas of amassed Ukrainian manpower and materiel, and also 137 artillery and mortar units at firing positions…They eliminated 13 tanks and combat armored vehicles, four Grad multiple launch rocket systems and three ammunition depots”.
“In the past 24 hours, Russian operational-tactical and army aviation aircraft wiped out two Ukrainian command posts, three ammunition depots, 80 areas of amassed manpower and military hardware, and also a Buk-M1 surface-to-air missile system near Pilipchatino in the Donetsk People’s Republic…The air strikes eliminated over 210 nationalists and destroyed 31 pieces of military equipment”.
“In the past 24 hours, Russian air-launched precision missiles eliminated the following targets: three command posts, 36 areas of amassed Ukrainian manpower and military hardware and a self-propelled artillery battalion of the 14th mechanized brigade near the settlement of Soledar…Russian forces also wiped out six ammunition depots near the communities of Minkovka, Bakhmut, Nikolayevka, Spornoye and Krasny Liman in the Donetsk People’s Republic…In particular, they hit a large depot of 155mm shells for US-made M-777 howitzers in Razdolovka”.
“Russian air defense systems shot down five unmanned aerial vehicles in the areas of Chernobayevka in the Kherson Region, Dibrovnoye, Kamenka, Pitomnik and Maliye Prokhody in the Kharkov…Russian air defense capabilities also intercepted four Ukrainian shells of the Smerch multiple launch rocket system over the communities of Topolskoye, Semyonovka and Sukhaya Kamenka in the Kharkov Region”.
“Overall, the following Ukraine targets have been eliminated by Russian military forces since the beginning of the special military operation: 178 aircraft, 125 helicopters, 995 unmanned aerial vehicles, 320 surface-to-air missile systems, 3,243 tanks and other combat armored vehicles, 425 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,658 field artillery guns and mortars and 3,124 special military motor vehicles”.
