Some Russian News Tidbits that you should focus upon… (August 16, 2022)

Putin: “The situation in Ukraine shows that the United States is trying to prolong this conflict. They also act by inflaming the potential for conflict in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Recently, the United States deliberately tried to add fuel to the fire and shake up the situation in the Asia-Pacific region. The American adventure against Taiwan is not just a trip of an individual irresponsible politician, but part of a conscious strategy of the United States to cause chaos and destabilize the situation in the region and the world, a brazen demonstration of disrespect for the sovereignty of other countries and their international obligations. We see this as a carefully planned provocation. It is obvious that with the help of such actions, Western globalist elites are also trying to divert the attention of their own citizens from acute socio-economic problems – falling living standards, unemployment, poverty, deindustrialization. To shift their own failures to other countries – to Russia, to China, which are building a sovereign policy, not obeying the dictates of supranational elites.”

Shoigu: “In Ukraine, Russian military personnel are confronted by the combined forces of the West, who control the leadership of this country in a hybrid war against Russia. The deliveries of arms and military equipment to Ukraine are being increased, the personnel of the Ukrainian army are being trained, huge financial resources are being transferred to maintain the viability of the nationalist regime.
The actions of the armed forces of Ukraine are planned and coordinated by foreign military advisers, intelligence is supplied from all sources of information available in NATO, the use of weapons is carried out under the control of Western experts. NATO’s efforts are aimed at prolonging the agony of the Kyiv regime. At the same time, we know for certain that no one in NATO has any doubts that the goals of the special military operation set by the Russian leadership will be achieved. And the West’s plans to strategically weaken Russia are failing. The dollar did not reach the ceiling of 200 rubles, as the US president predicted, the Russian economy survived.”

Shoigu, continued: “Operations of the Ukrainian armed forces are planned in Washington and London. Not only are the coordinates of targets for strikes provided by Western intelligence, but the input of these data into weapons systems is carried out under the complete control of Western specialists. Kyiv’s role in the Western approach to warfare is reduced to the supply of manpower, which is seen as expendable. This explains the huge losses of personnel of the armed forces and formations of the territorial defense of Ukraine. While the real numbers of dead military personnel and mobilized defense forces are hidden by the Kyiv leadership, however, over time, these data will become public.”
