Victory Day for Russia and the rest of Europe commemorating the victory over Nazism 77 years later will come this year with a new victory over Nazism, the neo-Nazism regime amplified by NATO countries and directed at Russia in particular, and the rest of the world in general, this was the date set for the ‘Russian Special Military in Ukraine’ was planned to end at.
Ten weeks starting February the 24th and ending by 09 May is the time the Kremlin and its Ministry of Defense strategists planned for the Military Operation in Ukraine to take until achieving the stated goals: the de-arming of Ukraine, neutralizing the country to create a buffer zone with the NATO aggressive alliance that has expanded eastward all the way to already swallow countries bordering Russia, and the ‘de-Nazifying of Ukraine’, the date of 9 May marks the anniversary the Russians and the world, in general, celebrates the end of the first Nazism in Germany during World War 2.
Lebanese top political analyst and former MP Nasser Kandil said he has heard from sources within the top officials in Moscow that the Russian Special Military Operation in Ukraine is going as planned, the time for the operation to fulfill its goals was set for 10 weeks within which the first 2 weeks will be focused on destroying the backbone of the Ukrainian military offensive capabilities including air defense, air force, seizing the Pentagon-sponsored biological warfare labs, securing the nuclear plants, and circling the main cities. Starting the 3rd week, the Russian troops will take one major city every week and will try to avoid the Ukrainian capital Kiev (Kyiv) to the end, if possible, giving the Ukrainian regime chance to declare defeat within this period and accepting the terms it refused with the backing of NATO for the past 8 years.
Failing to accept those terms which were mainly stipulated in former agreements, the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances signed in 1994 assured the security of 3 former Soviet republics: Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus in exchange for them handing away their nuclear arsenal, the Minsk 1 and Minsk 2 agreements in September 2014 and February 2015 respectively, in which Ukraine will cease to bomb the Russian ethnics in the Donbas provinces, now republics of Donetsk and Lugansk (Luhansk), allow them to speak their native Russian language, the unrest that followed the US ‘regime change’ plot in Kiev that toppled the democratically elected, Russian-somehow friendly, at least not hostile government and was replaced with a regime whose officials were handpicked by the US Under Secretary of State Nuland and the US ambassador to Ukraine as the whole world knows, this regime’s main goals is to join the NATO alliance, it made sure that was written in its constitution, an alliance that stipulates in its charter that Russia is the major enemy, meaning that Ukraine will automatically become Russia’s main enemy as engraved in its constitution, in addition to bringing NATO directly to Russia’s western borders within a firing range of 5 minutes for its missiles to reach Moscow.
Seeing all the above danger approaching and despite the consecutive warnings every single year ever since Mr. Putin became the president of Russia to no avail, the Russian leadership had no choice but to carry out a ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine to secure its very existence, not only its national security.
In regards to the military progress on the ground, the below article (originally published in Arabic) by Mr. Kandil explains the speed the operation is taking in comparison to previous similar operations with distinctive differences, and how this Russian Special Military Operation in Ukraine is very much on track, it’s even ahead of its goals
Is Speed a Criterion for the Russian Military Success in Ukraine?
Since the beginning of the Russian military operation in the face of NATO’s progress towards the Russian borders, Ukraine has turned into a war zone, and the Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian army, and the Ukrainian economy have turned into fuel for a hopeless war, and avoiding it has been based on accepting the formula of neutrality instead of the illusion of joining NATO, whose creed is based on declaring Russia the number one enemy, Ukraine’s accession to it means declaring war on Russia, and NATO’s plan is to wage a media war on two fronts instead of the military war that it is afraid to fight.
The first front is persuading the Ukrainians to continue fighting on their own despite being abandoned by NATO, and the illusion that the sanctions imposed on Russia on the one hand, and the arms and money shipped across the borders to Ukraine on the other are enough to thwart the Russian military operation.
As for the second front, it is directed at the world and the Ukrainians together, and its content is to convince public opinion that the criterion for success or failure is not based on the progress in geography, nor overcoming the impact of sanctions, but rather the failure to achieve this quickly, and the criterion of speed set for the formula of success was by entering Kyiv (Kiev) in two or three days, which is something that needs to prove its reality before marketing it, but marketing it is the important aspect, to move forward to talk about failure, and then enter into a psychological war whose content is to explain the failure, which did not occur except in the media, but it became a reality in the awareness of many, and it became possible for them to question the reason and provide an appropriate narrative to manipulate their minds about the reason for the failure.
The hidden pole is all in a sentence falsely attributed to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said ‘we will start a special military operation in Ukraine’. From an unknown source, the word ‘rapid’ was added to it, and it traveled like wildfire, and the talk became about speed before anything else, then it became fast in two or three days.
Is the expectation of the rapid operation realistic in the first place in order to accept the conclusion that its marketing was not part of a programmed plan to fight the war of thwarting the military operation in the minds of public opinion based on this impossible hypothesis, even if it succeeded in the real field?
The criterion for measurement is simple, as America which is considered to be a superpower more powerful than Russia, faced a similar and less powerful opponent than Ukraine, and taking the time that America needed to impose its control in comparison to what is happening with Russia, which Western newspapers and reports, and foreign and Arab satellite channels are stuffed with expert analyzes, and military failed retired officers, to sell the theory of failure, and engage in the fabrication of supposed reasons for it, reproducing what the Pentagon experts wrote once about logistical problems, and another by talking about weak control and leadership, third by talking about the lack of fuel, and the fourth by intelligence weakness, and always due to the Ukrainian resistance, up to the latest innovations by talking about a shortage in the number of Russian soldiers needed to win success, all these elements whose discussion can be accepted if the original hidden pole is proven, which is that the Russian military operation failed, and that the criterion for failure is speed?
By analogy, we have before us an American experience in the Yugoslav war, in 1999, after ten years of a devastating civil war, for a country whose area is not equivalent to 15% of the area of Ukraine, and whose population is also 15% of the population of Ukraine, and it has no borders with any support it receives, and a politically isolated government within Europe and beyond, At a time of unilateral American dominance over the world, and under a relative cover of an international decision to impose a cease-fire and protect civilians, the battle of Belgrade, the Serbian and basically the Yugoslav capital, was not resolved except after 78 days of devastating bombardment, which means that the American experience if it is based on Russia’s consideration of having the same American ability itself and in its same position under unilateralism, and considering that Ukraine is in international and internal conditions similar to those of Serbia, and limited the comparison to area and population, the period on which Russia should be held accountable in resolving the Kyiv battle should be six times the 78 days, i.e. a year and a half.
There is another experience that America went through when it was at the height of its power, by invading Afghanistan and Iraq, during which it succeeded in entering Kabul after two months and Baghdad after twenty days. The US President announced the end of the military operation in Iraq after 40 days. The result was the American recognition of a catastrophic failure in less than a year, and with Iraq turning into a quagmire in which the Americans were drowning, leading to the acceptance of withdrawal without achieving the goal, i.e. building a regime that is an ally of Washington, or as President Joe Biden said about the justifications for withdrawing from Afghanistan after twenty years: despite the announcement of success after twenty days, that if we remain for another twenty years, nothing will change, we will fail, but we will pay more thousands of victims and more trillions of money.
By comparison, it seems clear that the Americans, by waging a media war under the title “speed is the criterion of success,” want the Russians to have a fate for their operation similar to the fate of the two American operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, drowning to the ears with failure, and taking the path that the Americans took, which is the search for a quick victory titled the occupation of the capital and the installation of an alternative puppet government, and entering into the confrontation of popular resistance based on the rejection of the occupation, while the Russians are keen to engage in a military operation that ends with a political agreement with the current Ukrainian government, Moscow knows that it will only happen if the West is convinced that their financial and media campaigns and their military support for the Ukrainian government are useless in making Russia fall into the trap of the hidden pole, and turn into an occupying power that does not know what to do with the country it occupies, nor how to protect a puppet regime it installs in that country.
Moscow knows how to manage the elements of Western despair, based on the success in containing the first shock of the sanctions, strengthening its alliances with China and Iran, continuing the steady and calm progress in the Ukrainian geography, with great caution against being involved in mass killings of civilians, and continuing the negotiating endeavor to make the option of Ukrainian neutrality a model for buffer zones that separate Russia from NATO to prevent friction that could lead to a world war.
End of the article.
We are waiting to see which major city will be the next to get de-Nazified as per the plan, 4 weeks are almost over while hoping the US-installed puppet regime in Kyiv would come to their senses sooner to save the blood, suffering of their people, and the destruction of their cities, 6 more weeks can carry a lot of developments, more risks of loss of wider conflicts, and the more time the Kyiv regime takes to make up their decision the more conditions the Russians will add.
Depending on the USA is deadly, depending on NATO is humiliating, it’s a proven fact already so many times, becoming a hero is by saving the lives of your people not by sacrificing them for an alliance that sees you as disposable pawns in their globalist hegemony agenda, the same advice goes to NATO member states in their relations with the United States, or whoever is ruling that large country in northern America, nobody seems to know exactly.
