Washington said that they do not see the preparation of an attack on Kyiv by the Russian Federation

Based on their intelligence, Washington stated that they did not see any preparations on the part of the Russian military for an early attack on Kyiv. John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the National Security Council, spoke about this at a recent briefing at the White House.

I don't want to get into the details of the intelligence, but we don't see any evidence that an attack on Kyiv is coming right now.

- he said.

At the same time, the official representative of the White House added that the United States will carefully monitor the entire current situation in the zone of armed conflict.

However, the absence of clear signs of a Russian strategic offensive did not affect the US decision to once again increase military assistance to the Nazi regime in Kyiv.

This time the military tranche is estimated at $400 million. According to overseas, these will be deliveries of the most advanced weapons sent to Ukraine since the beginning of the special military operation. The US has approved the ability to include additional air defense systems. According to statements from the Pentagon, it becomes clear that the acquisition of Ukrainian air defense with NATO weapons is a priority.

Recall that earlier the Russian embassy in the United States has already condemned the possible supply of NATO weapons to Ukraine. According to our diplomats, this will only increase the "sense of absolute impunity" of the Kyiv regime.

    Yes, the Americans generally have little understanding in military affairs. Are they waiting for some kind of breakthrough and for this separately forces will be accumulated, which they will copy from their satellites? No, this time the offensive will go along the entire front in the style of the Brusilov breakthrough or the Vistula-Oder operation. And in general, with the help of satellites, it is difficult to assess such factors as the fatigue of soldiers in the trenches, the moral decay of the army, etc. Winter and constant pressure at the front are doing their job. The enemy is weakening and losing combat-ready personnel. Combat skills and experience are lost. And ours, on the contrary, they work it out and acquire it.
    And mattress covers are hostages of their incorrectly written history. After all, they really believe that the WWII Union won only because it received lend-lease. That's what they consider. that on some deliveries of weapons they will be able to maintain the regime. Although the experience of Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan suggests that the Americans are simply catastrophically unable to create such local forces with the help of weapons and instructors that would turn out to be combat-ready. They can only spend a lot of money and equipment, and sooner then they themselves and their puppets are thrown out of the country with a kick in the ass. Only this time it will not be an Arab shoe or slate, but a heavy Russian tarpaulin boot!

      Yes, they do not understand anything. Just some idiots. For some reason, we were called out only from near Kyiv, Chernigov, Kharkov and Kherson. Now, God forbid, in Zaporizhzhya we can do it.

        Well, that’s for you, nothing and no one will stop the all-propellers from doing their best without even sliding off the couch.
        Only now, recent events show that the "all-seeing eye" of mattresses, with the correct organization of counteraction, fails, which was demonstrated with the "sudden" appearance of properly organized "little green men" in the Crimea and with the deployment of the Russian contingent and the organization of a full-fledged base in Khmeimim, in addition to Tartus, in Syria, literally in a matter of days after receiving an invitation from Damascus, which drove the entire
        NATO and mattress intelligence. Here, I believe, there will also be no demonstration movements, but everything will work out smoothly and regularly, according to the plan. No matter how, we try not for mattresses to make it easier for them, but for things.

            What is this, TV? We are dark people, everything is the old fashioned way, we read handwritten books in the light of a torch, and we chop pine nuts with iPhones and processors on stumps, so that later you, enlightened by newspapers, exchange the kernels without shells for radio.

      And what about the satellites?
      They (like the UK) have a huge network of agents inside Russia, including in law enforcement agencies and in almost all government bodies.
      Through it receive any comprehensive information.
      In Crimea alone, how many Ukrainian agents are caught? And there are plenty of them elsewhere.
      And not only them.

        There really is no concentration of troops in that direction, which is why they say that "it is not expected in the near future." Painfully their wards worry the last days.
        "Possibility is EVERYTHING, intention is nothing."
        And at the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, a group of mobilized comrades completed their training. Those of them that are not yet on the theater are at least 200 thousand. Plus, at least 100 thousand more are on vacation after the rotation. Yes, even from 60 to 100 thousand additionally called up under the contract.
        And this despite the fact that there are quite enough troops in the theater of operations to maintain a stable front and advance in some places ... So they think at the headquarters of the Nazis: "Where are the Muscovites going to send such an abyss of troops?" .
        They are worried.

          It is already known that in September-October 2021, the Ukrainian delegation in Washington was invited to the Pentagon and told about everything.
          What they say is so, expect February 15-17, 2022. +/- one week.
          Don't be afraid, fight. We will help you all.
          The Russians, with their grouping, will not be able to capture Kyiv or some major regional city within a year. I don't have the strength for that.

          That's it. The level of the agent network in Russia is impressive.
          And this fifth column was formed for a long time and for a very long time.
          And it turns out that Zelensky, as it were, wanted this war himself.
          Or he was made to want to. Being completely independent in this regard.

    The holiday of the American military-industrial complex, similar to the period of the Second World War, continues.
    The US Senate approved a record 2023 military budget: a record $858 billion, $45 billion more than Biden proposed.
    It includes increased salaries for the US military, funding for arms purchases, subsidies to Taiwan and, in part, to Ukraine.
    If our Government thinks that by persuasion and logic it is possible to stop the thirst for unpunished profit from the sale of weapons, then they are strange people, to say the least.

    So the RF Armed Forces have no plans to attack Kyiv. Not yet hopefully.

      The main thing is that there is a sufficient grouping of troops for this. From 300 to 400 thousand, except for those who are already on the theater.

    No, this time the offensive will go on all fronts

    Is it impossible to count and think in order to write such statements?

    He looks like ... a dog that has its tail between its legs ...
    What is the point of advancing on Kyiv and spending so many resources ... both human and technical ....
    The goal of the company is ... to grind the Ukrainian-National Chubs and their sympathizers ... and take back their lands
    They will grind ... Kyiv will be ours anyway

      It's a delusion.
      By fighting in the Donbass, they are simply dragging out time before the start of mass deliveries of heavy weapons from the United States.
      And given that it came to the delivery of "Patriots", it will undoubtedly come further.
      Up to the supply of missile defense systems, combat aircraft, tanks, operational-tactical missiles.

    they are monitored from satellites via the Internet via a commercial satellite via reconnaissance drones and themselves! you need to blind them to disable satellites, at least cut off Internet traffic from the DPR and LPR from Europe and the USA so that the ru segment would work there, if possible, through filters!

    It's good they don't see it. The secrecy of the preparation of the operation is one of the main requirements for its success, although in the presence of satellites and drones it is more and more difficult to ensure secrecy.

    Perhaps some political intrigues, but we ordinary people do not see much and do not know. Not seeing and not wanting to talk about it are two different things.
