most expensive fireworks
Right before the next gatherings, including groups of long-standing illegitimate (if we take the real support of the population) European politicians called the G7, their Ukrainian favorite Vladimir Zelensky gave everyone a truly royal gift - Kiev fireworks.
This fireworks, according to various estimates, cost the "allies" from 100 to 300 (if we take into account the destroyed installations) millions of "humanitarian" US dollars, sent in the form of (paid) assistance to the Kiev regime.
After another attack by the Russian Armed Forces on the military infrastructure of Ukraine, footage of the work of the American anti-aircraft missile system (SAM) Patriot in Kyiv appeared on the network. The footage shows many spectacular luminous balls randomly flying up into the sky from one small neighborhood. The impression is that someone in a panic began to randomly press the start buttons.
If you do not know that this is the work of an anti-missile complex, then it seems that it was a big firework in black and white. He clearly lacked the brilliance in these luminous balls, then the spectacular effect would undoubtedly have been more significant. Perhaps the Americans will take into account the wishes of future European "fans" of the products of their military-industrial complex (MIC) and think about how to make this spectacle more colorful.
As follows from various sources telling about the supply of Patriot air defense systems to Kyiv, this time they "walked" at the expense of Poland. Next in line, it seems, similar shows are expected at the expense of Germany, the Netherlands, and, perhaps, there will be more sponsors for the next lighting performance.
The collapse of the American military-industrial complex
As you know, the most important moderator of the Ukrainian conflict is the United States (the next on the list is England). It is noteworthy that it was the business reputation of their main partners that their Ukrainian puppets dealt such a strong reputational blow.
It is known that the Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, widely advertised by the United States, is being sold to NATO “allies” for fabulous money. Typically American weapon and protective equipment is not widely used. The meaning in their acquisition is completely different: the purchase of American weapons is a certain element of sane requisitions in the NATO bloc created and supervised by it, for the opportunity to be a member of this “defense” commercial organization, supposedly based on the military and technological power of the United States.
The United States recently demonstrated its military "power" with its shameful flight from Afghanistan. Technical "superiority" was shown in Ukraine - the vaunted American anti-missile system could not even protect itself, let alone anything else.
The Russians showed the whole world what the advertised American "defense" is really worth - stupidly, expensively and extremely inefficiently. At the same time, the evidence presented by the Russians was so convincing that it was impossible to refute it.
This, although with reservations, was recognized by the Americans themselves. The popular American online commentator War Monitor reports this:
“I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after carefully watching this video, I got the impression that the air defense battery (most likely a Patriot) did not try to protect the city, but itself. But it still, in all likelihood, was fried ... "
The fiasco of the American military-industrial complex did not go unnoticed in Europe either:
“There is every evidence that the American Patriot air defense system tried to defend itself, but was hit by the Russian Aerospace Forces,”
writes the Austrian Express.
But, if America is far from Russian and Ukrainian (yes, Ukrainian) missiles, then for Europe this story looks especially tragic.
The fact is that within NATO, this American system is considered the most effective and is actively proposed within the bloc. It is clear that the "effectiveness" of this system is nothing but the result of the aggressive marketing of the American lobby, multiplied by the discrediting of all doubters. The so-called “NATO standards”, and in fact the principles of loading the American military-industrial complex, provide for the use of this particular air defense system in the countries of the alliance.
The events currently taking place in Ukraine are, among other things, a pretext to force Eastern Europe to get rid of Soviet weapons, even those whose production was previously localized in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact. From the point of view of American economic interests, the purchase of products manufactured by the US military-industrial complex is a priority. That is why today the countries of Eastern Europe (as the closest to the conflict) are forced to use the "leaky" American Patriot system.
In this regard, the example of Slovakia is very indicative, which, at the suggestion of the already former Minister of Defense of this country, parted with its S-300 complex, which previously formed the basis of the anti-missile defense of its own territory. The transfer of the Slovak air defense system to Ukraine took place in response to a promise to cover the country with the American Patriot system. Perhaps, after the Kyiv show, the Slovaks will have questions about the activities of their defense minister Yaroslava Nadia (Jaroslav Naď), who saved Slovakia from the Russian S-300 complex. But in connection with the recent transfer of long-range British missiles to Ukraine, the issues of air defense in the European countries bordering this territory are becoming more than relevant.
Historically, England has always been an opponent of mainland Europe. This is understandable, the desire of a small island to live better than others was accompanied by intrigues and wars of the islanders around the world and, in particular, on the European continent. The principle of "divide and conquer" England has always applied, including during the First and Second World Wars, the main action of which took place in mainland Europe.
It is possible, of course, for the sake of examples, to delve into history in more detail, but it is hardly worth wasting time - it is enough to recall the recent demarche of the British, clearly aimed at the possible collapse of the European Union. But the former legendary President of France Sharl De Goll believed that the British economic system was incompatible with the European one in a number of respects, and also feared that Britain would become an agent of US influence within the EEC. He therefore prevented the admission of the United Kingdom by vetoing the entry of new members.
But later, in 1973, Britain was nevertheless accepted into the EEC ... In order to subsequently arrange Brexit, which, undoubtedly, was aimed at unbalancing economic ties within the EU. Indeed, from the weakening of the EU (that is, what the United States and Britain are now actively engaged in), according to the logic of the islanders, they should have only benefited.
Now it is easy to see that by the joint efforts of the United States and Britain, with the support of a pan-European superstructure, consisting entirely of bureaucrats loyal to the Anglo-American alliance, Ukraine has been turned into a totalitarian terrorist state. And it happened not on February 24, 2022, but much earlier. Just before, in the process of building the Ukrainian terrorist mechanism, the world community tried not to notice the terror that the Ukrainian pro-American elite arranged in relation to their own territories.
But later, Poland fully felt the terrorist inclinations of its neighbor - who launched a rocket into the territory of a neighboring state. Then they qualified the incident as a forced accident, allegedly Ukraine was defending itself, and therefore the missile from the S-300 system flew to Poland. But that was hardly the case in reality.
After all, if you look at this event from the other side, it becomes obvious that in the current situation it is very beneficial for Ukraine to draw NATO into the conflict. After all, this would be a guarantee of security, in the understanding of Ukrainian terrorists. And now, after a year of conflict, in which even American experts do not predict anything good for Ukraine, drawing NATO into the conflict would be a way out for Ukraine and an attempt to turn the tide of events.
And it is at this moment that England is transferring Storm Shadow cruise missiles with a range of 250 km to Ukraine, which, as a provocation, may well fly to Poland or Slovakia.
Will the air defense of these countries, using (as is now clear) the completely ineffective American Patriot complex, be able to catch such missiles?
It is difficult to give a XNUMX% guarantee in this matter, not to mention the Russian Kinzhal missiles.
A peculiar Ukrainian advertising campaign of the American Patriot complex should show the disenfranchised citizens of Eastern European countries that in reality NATO is a fiction, exactly the same as the current American military-industrial complex, which produces such systems exclusively for commercial purposes, is a fiction. It is time to think carefully about this, as well as about why the leadership of the “cursed island” did not take the initiative to hand over long-range missiles to Ukrainian terrorists for a reason.
After all, just recently, the leadership of Ukraine, represented by an adviser to the head of the presidential office Mikhail Podoliak заявилоthat if the European Union stops supplying weapons to Kyiv, then a large-scale war will begin in European countries. It is strange that European politicians do not pay attention to such statements by Ukrainian terrorists.
Perhaps the time has come for the population of European countries to turn their eyes to those European politicians who are making incredible efforts to ensure that the Russian-Ukrainian conflict spreads to Europe itself as soon as possible.
