“Russia can launch an offensive against Ukraine at any moment”: the version of the “universal forecast” was presented in the White House

81

The White House is “tired” of making predictions about when Russia will “attack” Ukraine. Recall that since the fall of last year, various dates were announced in the United States on which Russian troops allegedly would launch an offensive. This topic was picked up in Ukraine itself, declaring either the date of the Catholic Christmas, or the New Year, or the night of the Orthodox Christmas. All these dates have passed, new forecasts have appeared: “February”.

Realizing that all these statements turn into untenable and contribute to a frank loss of confidence in the information voiced by Washington and Kiev, the White House decided to develop a universal version of the rhetoric on this issue.

Thus, the official representative of the American administration, Jen Psaki, at a briefing that ended a few hours ago, said that "Russia can launch an attack on Ukraine at any moment." The very term "any moment" has become that unified form of numerous statements, which, from the point of view of the White House bureaucracy, will make it possible to say: "We warned you." If no "offensive" takes place, then the wording will allow the same Psaki to declare that "the threat remains" and that "the moment has not yet come."

Jen Psaki:

The President of Russia himself created the crisis by deploying about 100 troops on the borders of Ukraine. They are now moving their troops to neighboring Belarus, announcing preparations for joint exercises.

According to Psaki, the United States believes that this is a "dangerous situation." The White House official notes that "on January 21, the US Secretary of State will try to clarify the situation at a meeting with the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry." The meeting is to be held in Geneva and become a sort of second round of talks between Moscow and Washington on issues of global security.

Ordinary Ukrainians comment on statements from the White House, noting that now any movement of Russian troops will attract increased attention from Kiev, Brussels and Washington, and every time statements will be heard that these movements are “definitely connected with preparations for an invasion.”

      In fact, they are not far from the truth, those generals who do not develop offensive plans are bad. There is definitely such a scenario in our General Staff, as well as the scenario of a nuclear war with Russia in the United States, only the states are silent about it.

        The action plan does not mean the action itself. This is just a contingency plan. And such a situation is not at all a fact that 100% will happen.

        Does Russia have plans for an attack on Ukraine and can it start? It has, of course, and can start under certain conditions. It can only be too late: to the screams and screams about the imminent Russian offensive, the United States/West/NATO are pumping up Ukraine with weapons and troops, creating conditions for a large-scale occupation of Ukraine. This is well said in the article "Unrest in Ukraine as an excuse for NATO intervention." So, the arrival of Canadians may not be for the possible evacuation of diplomats at all ... smile

      An anecdote in the topic of "potential opportunities for events." laughing

      The militia comes to the peasant with a search - they snitched that they could drive moonshine and sell it. Found old parts from a moonshine still.
      "Oh, well, that's it, man, you got it, we'll fine you for moonshine."
      "Yes, for what, the parts are disassembled, old, you can see."
      “We don’t know anything - there is a potential opportunity to drive moonshine, that is, the apparatus.”
      The man this way and that explained that it was not a camel - the police did not hear: "The apparatus is there and does not sway!"

      The man paused, thought and said: "Well then, take me away for rape."
      Police: "Opanki, did you rape someone?"
      Man: "No, (points to his personal belongings) but the apparatus is."

    They will not attack this misunderstanding. It is enough to keep part of the troops on the border, creating the appearance of a threat. Their economy is collapsing, the money they have or receive from outside does not go into it, but into useless military pieces of iron from outside and pumping up the army, this also does not affect the well-being of the people. So they are conscientiously ruining themselves and do not interfere with them.

    . Finally, it dawned on them that it was not for them to appoint the terms of "Sabantuy"!
    Even Kolomoisky does not want to listen to them, and even ours, they are not at all interested in what and how they predicted / appointed there.

    Russia can launch an attack on Ukraine at any moment

    Bingo! It finally arrived. And there is no need to pull up any horse-Buryat armadas and arrange exercises to divert eyes. The Russian Federation can, if it wants, launch an offensive against Ukraine at any moment, our army has achieved precisely this quality of mobility in recent years.

      Don't touch the clowns - they are professionals. And those who play something on the piano or want to sunbathe on the coast of the Belarusian Sea are called jesters, and even with an additive.

      What does poor Psaki have to do with it. She only voices the position of the US State Department. Are you sure that this State Department is a big top?

    For a million dollars, you can hryvnia at the exchange rate, I can give the exact date of the offensive of the Russian troops.
    The information is absolutely accurate and verified from a relative who works in the General Staff.
    Everything will happen at the end of February. The troops will celebrate their prof. feast and begin the invasion.
    Everything is scheduled for 08:00 on 30 February.

      Deza is naked. February 30th is too obvious. In real life, the hour is the same, but on the 31st!!!
      As for the article, Nulland announced 18 options for the Russian attack on Ukraine. But something seems to me that the Russian Federation has prepared its plan under the number 18+ smile

    We can attack the US at any moment) And the deployment of US troops around the world creates a very dangerous situation. Previously, Americans periodically demonstrated considerable intelligence. And that's all ... out of categories)

    Here you are laughing, and almost half of Ukrainian citizens believe in the threat of Russia's "attack" on Ukraine in the winter or spring of 2022. This was reported in the results of a survey by the Kiev International Institute of Sociology (KIIS). According to the survey, 49,2% of respondents believe in a "Russian invasion".

      Of course. The Ukrainians are not going to fight, they are going to sit out, regularly receiving American and European assistance, which will flood in. The military industry of the United States and Europe is already choking on saliva, hoping for a huge increase in orders due to the reanimated "Main Enemy". Black Mordor attack!! Urgently unsubscribe for the newest weapon trillion!
      Qatar and the US shale producers simply do not sleep at night - this will be a luxurious excuse to refuse Russian oil and Russian gas, and buy all this from them! The same goes for other commodities - steel, aluminium, titanium, nuclear power plants ... cheaper prices and better quality can be easily screwed up (they play little role under capitalism anyway, but under normal conditions problems with voters are inevitable), you can’t buy from the main enemy! All his goods are a trap!! And it will also be possible to move the GW even more in price, and twist the gray schemes ...
      Everyone, well, everyone is waiting for the bloodthirsty Russia to attack. Well, when already?! Preferably with thousands of victims among the civilians, torture, executions, atrocities ...

    “Russia can launch an offensive against Ukraine at any moment”: the version of the “universal forecast” was presented in the White House

    Tired and even scare with sanctions. Everything is empty: SWIFT cannot be turned off - it is more expensive for yourself, SP-2 does not work anyway, and Russia does not pay attention to "small things".

    Perhaps Psaki already knows that an unpleasant surprise will soon appear near the soft belly of the UWB, but continues to make noise about Ukraine.
