Russian Bomb Shelter Preparations Continue As NATO Calls Up Children For War
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
A foreboding new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting President Putin and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu are presently traveling to Minsk for high-level talks with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko and Belarus Defense Minister Viktor Khrenin, says in response to these high-level talks, German Cabinet of Ministers spokesman Steffen Hebeshtreit told reporters this morning: “The Chancellor knows that Russian President Putin is expected in Belarus today – I think for the first time in three years…As for the future, we need to wait…Of course, there are concerns in this regard”.
Raising the concerns of the socialist Western colonial powers about the high-level meeting between Russian and Belarus military commanders-in-chief and defense ministers, this report notes, is the just published Western defense article “Announcement-Reason 3rd WW From Russia: “USA And Poland Hit Targets Inside Our Territory” -Fears Of An Equivalent Accomplished”, wherein it observed: “For the first time since the start of the war in Ukraine, Russia has directly accused the United States and Poland of attacks against Russian targets deep inside the country…This is not just escalation but the cause of a Third World War…Moscow now has the right to self-defense and is legitimized to hit, at least, targets in Poland”—a grave observation joined by Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova warning today: “After the high-profile fiasco in Afghanistan, America is increasingly drawn into a new conflict, not only supporting the neo-Nazi regime in Kiev financially and with weapons, but also increasing its military presence on the ground…This is a dangerous and short-sighted policy that puts the United States and Russia on the verge of a direct clash…For its part, Moscow urges the Joe Biden administration to soberly assess the situation and not to unleash a spiral of dangerous escalation…We hope that they will hear us in Washington, though there is no reason for optimism so far”.
With Moscow hit by a record snowfall, this report continues, a top meteorologist revealed: “The depth of Moscow’s snowfall reached 34 centimeters (13 inches) on Monday morning, repeating the record set in 1941”—in 1941 during that record snowfall, Moscow was under siege by the Nazi Germans that launched their “Operation Barbarossa” against the former Soviet Union on 22 June 1941—is a history worth remembering because Ministry of Emergencies regional director Sergei Poletikin just informed State Duma lawmakers that Moscow is preparing bomb shelters in Moscow, with him revealing: “Shelters in apartment buildings, in relation to the events taking place now in Ukraine, provide protection to the population from missiles, bombs and artillery strikes…These works are carried out in all apartment buildings by the public services sector and should be completed by 25 December…This is the decision of the operational staff”—and in preparation for total war, today it saw NATO member Poland announcing its Defense Ministry is calling up thousands of children as young as 15-years-old to begin combat and survival training.
Earlier today, this report details, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) revealed Russian military forces on the front lines are advancing, repelled all Ukrainian counterattacks and continue to obliterate socialist Western colonial weapons—a revelation joined by Ukraine reporting Russian drone attacks on infrastructure in Kiev and two other regions occurred early this morning—the Ukrainian national company Energoatom just reported: “On 18 December 2022, as of 13:00, all nine nuclear power units located in the territory controlled by Ukraine are operating…However, the total capacity of the two units is limited by more than 600 MW due to the unavailability of the energy system to receive the entire possible amount of electricity from them, since energy infrastructure facilities have not yet been restored after the shelling on 16 December”—then it saw the Ukrainian national company Ukrenergo announcing: “As of the morning of 19 December, there was a difficult situation in the Ukrainian power system…The most difficult situation is in the Central, Eastern and Dnieper regions…The emergency shutdown schedules were introduced in the Sumy, Kharkov, Poltava, Dnepropetrovsk, Kirovograd, Zhitomir, Chernigov, Cherkasy, Kiev regions and in Kiev”.
At the same time it was revealed: “Readers of the New York Times were perplexed by a crossword puzzle in the Sunday edition of the paper that appeared to be shaped like a swastika…Adding insult to injury in the minds of some was the fact that the puzzle was printed on the first day of Hanukkah”, this report notes, the leftist New York Times published their article “Counting Russia’s War Dead, With Tips, Clips and a Giant Spreadsheet”, wherein they used open source data to estimate that, as of 16 December, an estimated 10,229 Russian soldiers have been killed during the “Special De-Nazification Operation” that was launched on 24 February to liberate Ukraine—but nowhere in their article did the leftist New York Times factually state that the same open source data revealed: “As of 20 October, the irretrievable losses of the Ukrainian armed forces approached 402 thousand people, of which 387 thousand were killed”, nor did they inform their readers that the Committee of Soldiers’ Mothers of Ukraine demanded to clarify the fate of 320 thousand military personnel, but the Ukrainian secret police force SBU refused for reasons of national security.
While failing to tell the truth about the hundreds-of-thousands of ill-trained and ill-equipped soldiers he’s sent to be slaughtered, this report continues, yesterday it saw Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky proclaiming from his blacked out nation: “The reconquest of Crimea has started!”, but who added: “The operation itself has not started yet…When it starts, you will definitely hear about it…The reconquest of Crimea has started in people’s heads, and that’s very important”—an imaginary “reconquest of Crimea” fully supported by British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who after this proclamation of mental lunacy announced a new $304 million package of military aid for Ukraine—and was an announcement joined by top American defense expert and decorated combat commander retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel L. Davis, in his open letter “America Can’t Give Ukraine So Many Weapons A Nuclear War Starts”, assessing that neither the United States nor NATO can give Ukraine all the weapons it wants without putting the West at “mortal risk”, and factually states: “The approximately 1,500 units of armored vehicles Ukraine is seeking would be an arsenal bigger than the total armored forces of most European armies”.
With the energy crisis deepening in France, this report concludes, it was no surprise when it was reported this weekend: “Crowds of protesters took to the streets of the French capital on Saturday to protest France’s policies towards Russia and the nation’s NATO membership”—and in the latest truthful assessment of the present conflict nearing nuclear war, it sees world-renowned Brazilian geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar, in his just released open letter “News From The NATOstan-Imposed Meat Grinder”, most factually revealing:
No one ever lost money capitalizing on the unlimited nonsense spewed out by the collective deer-caught-in-the-headlights also known as Western mainstream media – complete with showering Person of the Year awards on a megalomaniac, cocaine-fueled lousy actor impersonating a warlord.
The non-stop trashy parade of Western military analysts is now “assessing” that the first targets of an incoming, joint Russia-Belarus attack on the 404 black hole formerly known as Ukraine will be Lviv, Lutsk, Rivne, Zhytomyr, and why not throw Kiev in the mix straight out of a second axis.
The Russian General Staff is attentively monitoring all the action and may even follow the advice of such “analysts”.
And then there’s outright panic, as the Ministry of Defense announced that the Strategic Missile Forces have loaded two Yars ICBMs into their intended silos. Cue to widespread shrieks of horror of the “Russia Readies Nuclear Missile Capable Of Striking Deep Into US” variety.
Some facts though never change. Number One is NATO as a figment of the collective West’s – extremely impaired – imagination. If push ever came to shove – as Straussian/neo-con armchair warriors hope and pray – Russia can conveniently defeat the whole of NATO as there is hardly anything “there”.
That, of course, would require a massive Russian mobilization. As it stands, Russia may look feeble in a few quarters as they activated at best 100,000 troops against possibly 1 million Ukrainian troops. It’s as if Moscow was not exactly seduced by the idea of “winning” – which may be the case, in a quite twisted way.
Even now, Moscow has not mobilized enough troops to occupy Ukraine – which, in theory, would be imperative to completely “denazify” the Kiev racket. The operative concept though is “in theory”. Moscow in fact is busy demonstrating a completely new theory – irrespective of the fact that a few exalted souls have been peddling that Putin should be replaced by the FSB’s Alexander Bortnikov.
With its array of hypersonic missiles, Russia can knock out all NATO bridges, ports, airports as well as power stations, oil and natural gas storage, Rotterdam oil and natural gas installations, in a matter of a few hours. All energy production equipment across NATOstan would be destroyed. Europe would be shut off from natural resources. A dazed and confused Empire would be unable to move troops, any troops, to Europe.
And still provocations run unabated. The recent attack by Tu-141 Ukrainian drones against Engels-2 airbase was blamed by Moscow on Kiev – which predictably denied all responsibility. Yet what really mattered was Moscow’s strategic messaging to US/NATO, with Putin flirting with the notion that sooner or later the response may be up a serious notch in case US/NATO weaponry supplied to Kiev is used to strike deep into sensitive Russian Federation territory.
The current Russian doctrine even allows Moscow to respond with nuclear strikes; after all Engels-2 airbase is home to nuclear-capable bombers, prime strategic assets.
The drones were certainly launched by infiltrated agents inside Russian territory. If they had originated from outside Russia, and interpreted as nuclear missiles, that could have triggered the launch against NATOstan of hundreds of Russian nuclear missiles.
Putin himself made it – ominously – quite clear at the Eurasia Economic Council summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, a week ago:
“I assure you, after the early warning system receives a signal of a missile attack, hundreds of our missiles are in the air it is impossible to stop them. There will be nothing left of the enemy, because it is impossible to intercept a hundred missiles. This, of course, is a deterrent – a serious deterrent”.
Not, of course, to the stupidity-corroded Straussian-neocon gang who are actually running American foreign “policy”.
It’s no wonder reliable Russian intel sources established that the missiles that hit Engels-2 were locally launched, though the Kiev regime desired it to be believed otherwise.
And that turns the whole charade into a Dadaist farce – with a dazed and confused Empire still bound to a maniac in Kiev who still believes that the Ukrainian S-300 that hit Poland came from Russia. Cue to the whole world – and not only Washington – as hostage to a “Person of the Year” maniac with the – virtual – power of provoking a worldwide nuclear war.
Meanwhile, on the ground, Russia has gone Deep Operations Strategy, big time. In several spots along the extensive frontline, they attack the points that are most likely to draw out poor Ukrainian reserves hiding in the second line of defense. When reserves come out through barren, muddy lands and terrible roads to the rescue of frontline units, entire battalions are massacred.
Russians never go deep into the third line – where command and control may be located. What’s in play is attrition warfare under Deep Operations Strategy, straight out of the playbook of the legendary “Red Napoleon”, Field Marshall Mikhail Tukhachevsky.
Russia saves soldiers, personnel and equipment. The whole thing works wonders in difficult terrain where vehicles get bogged down in rainy roads. This rinse and repeat tactic, day in day out, for months on end has led to (at least) 400,000 Ukrainian casualties. Call it the epitome of Attritional Warfare.
Historians will relish that the whole scenario resembles the Battle of Agincourt – where wave after wave of French Knights (playing the role of present day Ukrainians, and Polish/NATO mercenaries) kept running uphill against English archers and knights who just stood still and let them come, hitting the second line again and again.
The difference, of course, is that Russians are employing attritional warfare tactics day after day for six months now, while Agincourt was just one battle in a single day. By the time this meat grinder is over an entire generation of Ukrainians and Poles will have gone to meet their maker.
The collective West’s myth of a Ukrainian “victory” against the Russian war of attrition does not even qualify as cosmic delusion. It’s a lousy, lethal joke. The only way out would be to sit down at the negotiating table, now, before the hammer (the next Russian offensive) comes down on the anvil (the existing frontline).
But NATO, of course, as Stultifying Stoltenberg keeps reminding the world, does not do negotiations.
Which, in a sense, may be a blessing, as NATO may end up breaking up in myriad pieces, totally humiliated on the ground despite all its elaborate warmongering plans.
Andrei Martyanov has been peerless tracking the collective West’s complete economic, moral, intellectual – and most of all military – degradation, everything drenched in lies, lousy P.R. twists and “stupefying incompetence across the board”.
All this while Russia prepares “for yet another ‘defeat’, like retaking all of Donbass and then… Who knows what then. A quick win for Russia would be a loss because NATO would still exist. No, Russia has to pace this so as it sucks in NATO into the grinder.
Somewhere in her private pantheon, Pallas Athena, Goddess of Geopolitics, is immensely enjoying the show. Oh, wait; she’s actually reincarnated, and her name is Maria Zakharova.
