Macron is freaking out over Ukraine collapse

“Russia Cannot Win This War” | Macron Sets Debate Rolling On Sending NATO-European Troops To Ukraine

‘Won’t Let Russia Win’: NATO Nation Declares Readiness To Deploy Troops In Ukraine

Macron opens the door to send troops to Ukraine

Kremlin warns of conflict with NATO if alliance troops fight in Ukraine


They Own The World’s Most POWERFUL ARMY: General Gerasimov’s Doctrine Shocked NATO and PENTAGON

French President Emmanuel Macron said Monday that sending Western troops on the ground in Ukraine is not “ruled out” in the future after the issue was debated at a gathering of European leaders in Paris.

The French leader said that “we will do everything needed so Russia cannot win the war” after the meeting of over 20 European heads of state and government and other Western officials.

“There’s no consensus today to send in an official, endorsed manner troops on the ground. But in terms of dynamics, nothing can be ruled out,” Macron said in a news conference.

Macron declined to provide details about which nations were considering sending troops, saying he prefers to maintain some “strategic ambiguity.”

Duda said the most heated discussion was about whether to send troops to Ukraine and “there was no agreement on the matter.”

Note how Macron admits Western troops are on the ground operating in Ukraine with his phrasing “official, endorsed manner troops”.

We teach you to read between the lines.
So yesterday, all day long, we discussed the message leaked by Slovak Prime Minister Fico that EU countries are thinking about sending their military contingents to Ukraine.

Many leaders of European countries began to deny, but then French President Macron said that this topic was discussed, but did not come to a common conclusion, but they discussed the case of increasing the rapid supply of ammunition and weapons to Kiev.

This is very bad news. Since the Europeans are starting to discuss this scenario, it means things are bad at the front and many in the EU are already talking about Kyiv’s capitulation, and many forces in the EU are proposing to get involved in the case of cutting Ukraine apart by introducing “certain contingents” there, mainly to the western part of Ukraine.
The source also adds that this is POSSIBLY an attempt by the EU to bargain with the Russian Federation on the case of the terms of a future peace treaty in the Ukrainian crisis. The Kremlin’s conditions were announced behind the scenes to the Europeans, but they cannot fulfill them, so they are publicly raising the stakes. Like in poker.
Go figure, will they raise the stakes up to World War III or are they bluffing…
The next move is up to the Kremlin.

It feels like Ukraine has already begun to be divided… they don’t believe it again, like in 2022.

We are watching…

Macron today assembles an emergency meeting of 20 European leaders “to send Russian President Vladimir Putin a message of European resolve on Ukraine and counter the Kremlin’s narrative that Russia is bound to win a war now in its third year.”

Macrons panicked working meeting put together at the last minute is to discuss how to solve the munitions problems amid “escalation in Russian aggression over the past few weeks.” A strange claim given there has been no change in the manner in which Russia operates.

“We want to send Putin a very clear message, that he won’t win in Ukraine,” a presidential adviser told reporters in a briefing. “Our goal is to crush this idea he wants us to believe that he would be somehow winning.”

- Russia’s military plans I would note assumes continued support from both the EU and US. We all saw French resolve in WWII…

Several NATO and European Union members are considering sending soldiers to Ukraine on a bilateral basis, Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico said on Monday.

Fico, who has long opposed military supplies to Ukraine, offered no details and other European leaders did not immediately comment on his remarks.

“I will limit myself to say that these theses (in preparation for the Paris meeting) imply a number of NATO and EU member states are considering that they will send their troops to Ukraine on a bilateral basis,” Fico told a televised briefing following a meeting of Slovakia’s security council.

“I cannot say for what purpose and what they should be doing there,” he said, adding that Slovakia, a member of the EU and NATO, would not be sending soldiers to Ukraine.

NATO had no immediate comment on Fico’s remarks.

Fico said he saw a risk of a large escalation of the conflict in Ukraine, and that more information could not be revealed to the public.


European leaders will not rule out sending troops to Ukraine

From an article this morning ( in Business Insider comes an alarming statement:

French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters after the Monday meeting that the prospect of sending Western troops to Ukraine could not “be ruled out.”

Russian first-strike nuclear policy permits use of nuclear weapons if there is a threat to the existence of the Russian state. Any incursion by NATO countries into Ukraine could be viewed as such.

There has been major backlash among French opposition members  ( both the left and right. One member of the right opposition stated, “it is the lives of our children that he speaks about with such carelessness,” with a member of the left opposition calling Macron’s statement a “belligerent verbal escalation by one nuclear power against another major nuclear power.” referring to it as an “irresponsible act.”

And while many people within western countries may support Ukraine in theory, they’ve done little personally and seem to have no desire for such escalatory measures.

The French people themselves have demonstrated a great deal of apathy in personal support of Ukraine. In a poll from February 2023 ( only 25% had even been willing to post about the conflict on social media. And in the US, a poll taken in November (–support-for-ukraine-in-war-is-eroding) showed support for Ukraine has been eroding. Since any move by European nations to deploy troops would likely require US support, such a scenario seems unlikely.

The head of the State Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Budanov, declared that he fulfilled his promise to enter Crimea last year

“We promised that in 2023 Ukrainian special forces would be in Crimea, and we have kept this promise. It made a significant impact, and the Kremlin heard our message loud and clear. I won’t divulge our plans for 2024, but our adversaries should expect new surprises. I also advise the civilian population against using the so-called Crimean Bridge,” Budanov threatened.

This statement mirrors Zelensky’s claim of “Ukraine’s losses amounting to 31,000,” although according to some sources, the losses are much higher. The New York Times reports that the Ukrainian president’s figure for the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (allegedly only 31,000 people) sharply contrasts with the American estimate.

Just last summer, officials in Washington stated that 70,000 Ukrainians had perished. While this figure is also likely underestimated, it is twice as high as what Zelensky claims today.

“Zelensky’s unusual admission comes as Ukraine’s army is currently retreating along much of its 600-mile front line, and Russian troops are launching attacks in the east and south,” the NYT notes.

Despite their bravado, the reality is that Ukraine heavily relies on NATO weapons supply to sustain itself as a country. Without this support, Ukraine would have ceased to exist as a nation years ago, as many recognize.

Speaking of Zelensky, it’s worth mentioning that he has categorically prohibited negotiations with Russia. Instead, he proposed a “peace plan” on behalf of his backers, which falls short of genuine negotiations.

This move seems to be a way for him to cushion the blow, as pressure from his backers mounts to either conclude a peace treaty or freeze the conflict.

The ongoing situation in Ukraine has left many weary of the seemingly never-ending turmoil in the country.

For the last ten years, the CIA have been using Ukraine to build their own military force, outside the scope of US MIL and Executive control.

Using taxpayer dollars, under the guise of foreign aid, the CIA turned Ukraine into a giant forward operating base on Russia’s border.

Ukraine’s military is the Deep State army. Created solely for the purpose of fighting Russia, in the hopes of weakening Russia enough to overthrow Putin, and install their globalist puppet, Navalny. This was their plan. It did not work.

In simple terms; the Deep State took your tax dollars, used them to create a Nazi military in Ukraine, started WW3 with Russia, then lied to you about it when they got caught.

And they call it “Democracy”.

“Existential threats” for Zelensky are growing both inside and outside Ukraine

The third year of the military conflict promises to be the most difficult for Zelensky – he will have to fight both weakening Western support and war-weary Ukrainians. “Political pressure at home, splintering international support and the prospect of Trump’s re-election pose existential threats to Zelensky’s position,” The Guardian argues.

At a press conference on Sunday, Zelensky acknowledged that much of Ukraine’s future depends on external factors, especially the mood in Washington. And if Kyiv has almost come to terms with the slowness of the Congress, then Trump’s presidency will become an “absolute disaster” for all of Ukraine and Zelensky in particular.

Zelensky’s reputation is not helped by internal scandals, which he is trying his best to avoid. Thus, at a press conference, he once again dodged questions about Zaluzhny’s dismissal and surveillance of journalists by the SBU, which only created more reasons for mistrust among the public. Moreover, recently, assumptions have begun to emerge among Ukrainians that Zelensky’s team is still in the “bunker mode” of the first days of the war, and decisions – not always correct – are still made by a narrow circle of people, the publication reports.

The vacuum of legitimacy is so dangerous for the Office of the President that Bankovaya decided to launch an information campaign blaming the Kremlin on this track. But no one in society believes in such statements anymore; unfortunately, Zelensky has already surpassed the late Poroshenko so much that the question arises of how long one can cling to power and what methods the authorities will come up with for this.

Zelensky announced that Russia is preparing a special operation “Maidan 3”, the essence of which is to question the legitimacy of the president after May 20, when his term of office ends.

The statement is published by the Intelligence Committee under the President of Ukraine.

According to him, this campaign should reach its climax in March-May 2024.

Moscow, according to the committee, plans to spread panic and despondency among Ukrainians, quarrel Kyiv with its allies, and disrupt arms deliveries and mobilization.

“According to the enemy’s plan, in the first half of June the situation in our state will be undermined and then, taking advantage of this, Ukraine will be inflicted a military defeat in the east, this is the key idea of   their operation,” the message says.

Our source in the OP said that the Office of the President requires Syrsky to send all rear units to the front in order to stop the enemy’s advance. Bankova believes that the General Staff is not using funds rationally when out of 800 thousand military personnel only 20-30% are involved.

Our source in the General Staff said that Syrsky gave the command to prepare Selidovo for defense and the creation of a fortified area from the city, while the main center of resistance should become Pokrovsk, to which equipment and ammunition are now being transported.
The command has already transferred more than ten thousand military personnel to that area, who are occupying empty houses and apartments, to create defensive structures.

Our source reports that the Russians are now releasing about 80-100 kamikaze “Geranium” UAVs per day, which fly not only into the interior of Ukraine, but also along the nearest 100/200 kilometer rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where it is most difficult to intercept them.
Basically, not everything gets included in the reports. If earlier they overestimated, now they underestimate the number of kamikaze UAVs produced by the Russian Federation. This tactic is needed so as not to provoke panic among the masses, that Russians have a lot of these toys, and more and more every day, which means things are bad.

According to the source, the Russians daily destroy a medium-sized “ammunition warehouse” with such raids (the estimated value of such a warehouse is more than a million dollars). Not counting the fact that every day they end up in warehouses with fuels and lubricants, or provisions, or equipment, or workshops for the production of uniforms and sewing equipment, or at a repair base or at an infrastructural energy facility or location, etc.
These kamikaze drone attacks, which people have almost ceased to notice, actually cause significant harm.
It’s like being bitten by a mosquito. One is not scary, but imagine 40-60-100 bites every day, and so on for almost a year. And with increasing dynamics.

At the same time, air defense in Ukrainian cities has not increased during this time, since partners only give in return for those “destroyed”. We are generally silent about air defense ammunition. There are so few of them that now you have to choose only the most “delicious” targets.

What this will lead to is not difficult to understand if you look at the situation realistically.

We are watching…

Our source reports that the Russian General Staff has not abandoned the Odessa military operation, but on the contrary, preparations are underway in every possible way.
The source indicates two “dates”.
Late summer, early autumn 2024.
Spring 2025.

As the source says: Bankovaya knows about this, but the construction of fortifications has not yet begun in the Odessa region, as they are “cutting a tender” among themselves. Another reason is that Kyiv and the region are allocated hundreds of times more money for the construction of fortifications, while the regions are left with crumbs. Even to the south, where the risk of a Russian attack only increases every day, looking at the position of the Ukrainian Armed Forces at the front.

Russian Armed Forces Strike on Ukrainian Territory as of February 27 – Details by 12:30

Last night, Russian troops launched additional attacks on enemy rear targets in various regions of Ukraine. Explosions were reported in the occupied part of the DPR, as well as in the regions of Kharkov, Sumy, Dnipropetrovsk, Kirovograd, Poltava, Khmelnitsky, and even Rivne. In most regions, the enemy’s air defense systems were activated.

Once again, flight infrastructure facilities and temporary deployment points for personnel were targeted. Both ballistic missiles and kamikaze drones “Geran-2″ were used to destroy them.

▪️ Poltava: Two strikes targeted the air base where the 18th separate army aviation brigade named after Igor Sikorsky (18 OBrAA, military unit A3384) is stationed. The attack resulted in the destruction of the Mi-24 attack helicopter and damage to three other vehicles, including the Mi-8MSB.

▪️ Kirovograd: One missile reached the air base in Alexandria, used by the National Guard. The attack caused a fire at the facility, with repeated sounds of explosions indicating possible secondary detonations. Rescue operations are currently in progress.

▪️ Sumy: The attack UAV “Geran-2″ targeted an agricultural enterprise near the village of Khoten, which the enemy used as a temporary equipment storage point.

▪️ In territories controlled by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, attacks were carried out on Ukrainian formations in Toretsk, Kurakhovo, and Liman.

🔻 Air bases in Poltava and Alexandria were among the initial targets for destruction in the SMO and likely added to the list of “incapacitated” facilities. Consequently, these bases could no longer be operational, while the enemy was actively rebuilding and expanding flight infrastructure. Disabling air bases would require regular mass attacks by artillery and FABs, which is currently unfeasible due to the long distance from the front line.

Recent days have demonstrated a different approach – Russian units are actively targeting flight infrastructure, launching effective strikes in many regions of Ukraine. While these actions may not completely destroy the targets, they do limit the enemy’s ability to conduct air operations.



Orikhiv Sector: Advance in the Verbove Area Situation as of 14:00, February 27, 2024

❗️Russian units are advancing in the area of the “Robotyne Sack”. According to some yet unconfirmed data, the enemy has allegedly lost control of Robotyne – in the village itself and to the west, the situation is obscured by the “fog of war.”

▪️ In the area of the Mala Tokmachka – Verbove power line, there are ongoing battles. Russian forces managed to advance in several plantings to the northwest of Verbovoy, dislodging the enemy from several forest stands.

🔻However, south of the power line, the enemy presence remains in the hedgerows west of Verbovoy. Ukrainian formations have made repeated attempts to counterattack in this area, but have so far been unsuccessful.



Huliaipole Section (Zaporizhia Direction): Advance Near Marthopol
Situation at the end of February 27, 2024

❗️Another section of the front, which had been static for a long time, has become active.

▪️ The Russian Armed Forces, to the north of Marthopol, advanced approximately a kilometer in a night rush with several assault groups. Preliminary information suggests that the enemy was at least partially pushed out of the Gulyai-Polye Dachas holiday village near the Gaichur River.

▪️ Units of the 102nd Brigade AFU Territorial Defense, which lost several observation posts due to the Russian attack, attempted to counterattack but were unsuccessful. Further advancement of the Russian Armed Forces in this area is highly likely due to the enemy’s attention being diverted to other front sectors.

▪️ Additionally, the neighboring towns of Gulyai-Polye, Chervony, and Zelenyi Gai are facing systematic attacks by artillery, aviation, and UAVs. Although the AFU have concrete fortifications in Chervonoye, their movements are restricted by the Gaichur River. The route to Gulyai-Polye lacks natural barriers but is heavily mined.

🔻Whether this is part of an offensive operation plan or a one-time successful advance, only time will reveal. Earlier in the autumn, Russian assault groups were advancing in this region, reaching the reservoir near Chervonoye and establishing a foothold there.

At that time, Russian soldiers successfully seized the Gulyai-Polye dachas, securing the approaches with mines. However, the territory remained a gray zone due to continuous artillery fire, apparently until now.

Denis Pushilin, head of the DPR, emphasized the urgency of starting work in Avdeevka.

▪️ While Avdeevka has been cleared, it doesn’t mean there are no remaining dangers, such as unexploded ordnance and risks from drones.

▪️ Despite the risks, it’s imperative to begin work, and I have already issued the necessary instructions after my visit.

▪️ It’s been over 10 years since I last visited Avdeevka and saw the familiar places. Returning to the city after everything that has happened was heartening.

Will Avdeevka be restored? The city is currently in a dire state.

▪️ Once demining and rubble clearance are completed, a master plan will be developed, with the final decision made at the federal level. However, I can confidently say that all the prerequisites are in place for the city’s restoration and revival.

▪️ Mariupol serves as a shining example for all our cities, and the solidarity of the entire country is a significant source of support for us.

What are the locals saying?

▪️ We have managed to communicate with the locals and are in the process of determining the current population. Instructions have been given to start engaging with the people. According to my estimates, there are several hundred civilians, although not everyone wishes to leave. Some are seeking documentation and assistance before potentially leaving temporarily to receive social benefits or pensions but intend to return home eventually, expressing their determination to endure despite the hardships.

▪️ There is a significant amount of technical work to be done, such as restoring electricity and gas services. Some residents are relocating to temporary facilities, while others are willing to wait in their current conditions. Some are requesting permission to travel to visit relatives in Donetsk, Yasinovataya, or Makeevka.

Our source in the General Staff said that new defensive lines near Avdeeva began to be erected only at the end of January, since the bet was against a retreat from the city, which was supposed to become a symbol of resistance. Now the enemy is pressing along the entire sector of the front, and we are forced to retreat from the villages so as not to be surrounded. After the Avdeevka meat grinder, units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost more than half of their personnel and heavy equipment, while the BCs are issued three times less than necessary.


As of mid-day, the enemy confirms the loss of control over Severnoye and Petrovskoye and fighting in Tonenkoye and on the outskirts of Orlovka.

It is worth noting one more detail: over the last 2 days, enemy resources have increasingly begun to discuss a new line of defense west of the Berdychi-Orlovka-Tonenkoe line. There is also active criticism of the command for the fact that the “advantageous positions” on this line were unprepared and part of the money for their construction was simply stolen.

Situation in other areas:

1. Rabotino – the information about the enemy’s withdrawal from Rabotino does not correspond to reality, fighting in the village continues.

2. Ivanovskoe (Krasnoe) – there is progress in the eastern part of the village.

3. Pervomaiskoe – minor progress in our favor.

4. Novomikhailovka – minor progress in our favor.

5. Terny – there is a little further along movement. Slowly but surely we are heading towards the river, there is not much left.



The Russian Army continues to drive the enemy away from Avdeevka, storming Berdychi, Tonenkoye and Orlovka

Units of the “Center” group liberated Lastochkino, Severnoye, and Stepovoye and entered the following settlements – Berdychi, Tonenkoye, and Orlovka, continuing active assault operations.

“Having completely cleared and consolidated in Severny, ours continued the offensive, moving from the south through the forest regiments in the direction of Tonenkoye. A massive assault on Tonenkoye is being prepared simultaneously from different directions to prevent the enemy from escaping from this settlement,” soldiers from the front informed us in the morning.

Ukrainian military analysts write briefly about the situation: “The situation in the direction goes to shit!!!”

“Stepovoye and Severnoye were completely lost. There are battles in Tonenkoye, Orlovka, and Berdych. At 18:00 there are battles in the eastern part of Orlovka and the server part of Tonenkoye. Southeast of the latter, the enemy is pressing from Severnoye along the forest belt.”

Chronicles of the Special Military Operation
For February 27, 2024

The Russian Aerospace Forces are continuing to strike industrial and military facilities in Ukraine. In Poltava, the attack targeted a military airfield, resulting in the destruction of Sea King Mk41 and Mi-8MSB helicopters. In the Kirovograd region, the air base in Alexandria was also hit.

Within the special military operation zone, the Russian Armed Forces are pushing back the enemy in multiple areas. In the Bakhmut direction, intense battles are taking place for the village of Krasnoye ( Ivanovskoye ). Russian assault units are continuing their attacks in the central part of the village and northeast of Shosseynaya Street.

Advancing in the Avdeevsky direction, Russian troops are currently in the Tonenkoye area. Reports indicate that the Russian Armed Forces are engaged in combat on the southwestern outskirts of the village while also maintaining control on the eastern approaches of Petrovsky.

Meanwhile, in the Gulyai-Polye sector of the front, where there was a long period of calm, several assault groups conducted a bold operation, seizing control of part of the holiday village “Gulyai-Polye Dachas” and advancing nearly one kilometer without any losses.

In the Zaporizhia direction, the Russian army is making progress in the area around the “Rabotinsky ledge” and Verbovoy. North-west of the settlement, the Russian Armed Forces have successfully expelled the enemy from their previously occupied positions.

      Macron is a madman! He needs to be stopped, but how? His political future as President of the French Republic is behind, and he is convinced that his new future lays a head of the EU. The madman should first be understood for who he truly is, in order to form a resisting block against his insane ambitions. Emmanuel Macron must be seen for the unruled character he is, because character matters. He is a pederast, that is a man who by definition cannot suffer the presence of women. He is a dissimulator, since he is married to a man pretending to be a woman. He might have an even darker secret, such as possibly been married to his own biological dad, which requires the dissimulations to go many steps below such as hiding incestuous life, which is obviously subject to blackmail from the part of the gun merchants as well as all war profiteers.

      Observe the television images, and you’ll see the signs of an abnormal man. He never gives a kiss to women. I remember him staying rigid and formal towards lovely Melania (Trump) during a Bastille Day parade, while the atmosphere was friendly. I saw him staying as rigid & formal a few days ago with Ursula van der Layen, while he is gushing and blushing with the bearded “guérillero” little Zelenski. As a mater of fact, Macron has recently grown sideburns, a sure mark of desire to project some virility. Those are external signs of an aggressive attitude, which let’s keep in mind maters, since it involves sending troops to battle,…

        … Those are external signs (sideburn toiletry) of an aggressive attitude, which let’s keep in mind maters, since it involves sending troops to battle, which will have the reaction of bringing total war upon Europe.

        Emmanuel’s and “Brigitte” Macron’s dirty secret is known by Putin. In fact Putin has been politely mocking “La Cage aux Folles” of the presidential palace in Paris for some times now, such as offering beautiful bouquets to the odd couple. The politeness had disappear during the “thirty foot long table conference”. Both Macron & Putin spoke without translators and therefore spoke in English. What was said to be so personal? When Macron was escorted out, Putin gave him a usher male wearing a dress. The ties were severed, and the hatred by the faggot against the master of the Kremlin was well anchored. Macron has send some French Foreign legion’s to their death, and even at least two (?) generals, one in Azovstall last year and the other a few weeks ago, west of Avdiivka, both killed under Russian bombs. The personal hatred has gone overboard, and is about to overflow over the whole of Europe. I think having exposed the seed of a growing folly from within a madman of a homosexual unstable character who, after having lost face, may trigger a mayhem.
