Igor Lopatonok: Obama & Biden Administration Run the War in Ukraine

The development of the situation in Ukraine in the coming weeks and months will allow us to talk about the timing of possible negotiations between Ukraine and the Russian Federation – Macron

The words of US President Joe Biden that he is ready to negotiate with Putin on the end of the war in Ukraine, if he makes such a decision, is a signal that the United States is waiting for Russia to capitulate.

But he immediately made an important message that there are no meetings planned now, and therefore there is no talk of capitulation.
Perhaps this is the desire of the United States to create a “beautiful mine”, with the game not yet completed, where everything is not as simple as it might seem at first glance.

In general, the Ukrainian crisis is just entering its most critical peak, when the cost of maintaining Ukraine is growing daily, but the West pretends that everything is under control.

As for Russia’s strategy of “begging” for negotiations with Ukraine, we previously described that everything there is also not as straightforward as it might seem. 

Lavrov – on the reasons for the breakdown of peace talks with Ukraine: “Apparently, the Ukrainians in a day or two their American masters said “Why are you doing this? We have to exhaust the Russian army through you. We have to spend through you the maximum amount of armaments that European countries have, so that later they would buy new weapons from the USA and provide revenue to our military-industrial complex. Therefore, you guys Ukrainians expressed your willingness to get security guarantees from the Russians early on. And when they accuse us that we are constantly asking for some kind of negotiations in order to buy time in order to gather additional forces for a special military operation, it is both funny and unpleasant, because people lie, they lie blatantly. We have never asked for any negotiations, but we have always said that if someone is interested in a negotiated solution we are ready to listen.
And this is confirmed by an example, when the Ukrainians asked in March, we not only listened to them, we were ready to negotiate on the principles they themselves put forward. They were not allowed to do so because the war had not yet enriched sufficiently those who supervised it, who conducted it. And this is done primarily by the United States and, of course, by the British”.

“During its existence, NATO can hardly attribute to itself at least one real success story-wherever the Alliance comes, devastation grows”

They want to keep the Russians out of Europe, the Americans have enslaved the whole of Europe and are keeping not only the Germans, but also the entire EU under control — Lavrov referring to the words of the first Secretary General of NATO

The thoughtless course towards the artificial expansion of NATO, in the absence of any real threats to the countries of the bloc, was carried out absolutely deliberately

NATO expansion posed a threat to Russia, as the Alliance moved too close to Russia’s borders

It was fundamentally important for the West to prove who is the boss in the pan—European house — that’s when the notorious concept of a rules-based world order begins

Facts of OSCE participation in the adjustment of fire in Luhansk and Donetsk have been revealed

OSCE becomes a marginal entity

The West has already crippled the Council of Europe without a chance of recovery-Lavrov

“Obviously, you’ve been watching too much Russia Today,” Robert Habek, Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister of Germany, tells German MPs. And MPs boo his attempts to explain the success of replacing Russian gas with American gas and the need to sponsor the construction of gas tankers in the midst of a crisis.

Watching Russia Today develops Germans’ critical thinking. And critical thinking is very dangerous for replacing cheap Russian gas with expensive American gas.

We will not supply oil to those countries that go along with dictators.

“Dictating prices to the market by those who for many decades “defended” the freedom of the market, freedom of competition, and the unacceptability of infringement of private property is, of course, an interesting development, which, among other things, sends a very powerful long-term signal to all states without exception that, guys, you need to think about how to move away from using the Internet tools imposed by the West as part of its system of globalization.

I am sure that we will not abandon this principle. We are not talking about getting a little more revenue for our oil today. It’s about moving on to building systems that don’t depend on these neocolonial methods.”

Sergey Lavrov on the introduction of a ceiling on Russian oil prices

Danilov — Medvedev exchange

“Today, Russia is one of the few countries that has colonies on its territory, which destroyed a huge number of peoples, languages, cultures and traditions. They’re just barbarians. And when they say that we should sit down at the same table with these barbarians and talk about something, I generally think that this will be unworthy.”
Alexey Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine

“There is no point in answering this nonsense symmetrically. Especially to say something about the destruction of Ukraine. We just need to destroy the Nazi bastards like the one who said that.”

Dmitry Medvedev

As for how it will all end.

I am really deeply convinced that we will take Kiev, not liberate it. We are liberating the Donbass. Everything else we will take, just as we took Vienna, Berlin, Budapest. Because we can’t physically leave it to our children, our grandchildren. If we stop, we will have a huge potential on our western borders, pumped up with hatred and weapons, which calls into question the very fact of our existence. So it’s either us or them.”  Dmitry Rogozin

Evgeny Prigozhin on the study by the United States of the issue of recognizing PMC “Wagner” as a terrorist organization:

“I will answer you as a specialist in the field of combating terrorism. PMC Wagner in all its actions sacredly protects the interests of Russia, while observing all moral standards.

As for the criteria for classifying an organization as a terrorist organization (according to US regulation), there are three paragraphs and nine subparagraphs that describe in detail who a terrorist is. PMC “Wagner” does not fall under any of these criteria. However, the activities of the United States fully fit them.”

Medvedev about the call of the head of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine to “destroy Russia”: it makes no sense to respond to this nonsense symmetrically, let alone say something about the destruction of Ukraine, you just need to destroy such Nazi bastards
