I have long thought whether to write this text. I really didn’t want to get into all these near-Kremlin fights and endless arguments in the “putinsley” or “putinvinovat” style. But the persistent attempts of the Kiev authorities to depict that they are fighting against the Russian army and the Kremlin, and not against the people's militia of Donbass, deprive me of such a choice - they will have to express their point of view ...
So, I spent two months in Donetsk and Lugansk, built up a fairly effective information network there, communicated with many leaders of the Resistance and even more with ordinary locals and rank and file militias. I traveled a significant part of the territory under the control of the militia (although it did not get to Slavyansk because of its surroundings).
After that, I have been in Moscow for almost two months. Also I talked a lot with officials, and with public figures, and simply with active citizens. Saw the picture from almost all sides, in different places and through the eyes of hundreds of different people.
And what I can say with all responsibility: in all this time I have not seen a single evidence or evidence that the Moscow Kremlin provides military assistance to the New Russia. No one.
1. There were no deliveries of military equipment across the Russian-Ukrainian border. And the proof of this is very simple - the border is almost continuously under the control of American reconnaissance satellites. If at least one tank had crossed the border, the Americans would immediately transfer the pictures of this to their puppets, and the stench would have gone to heaven.
Although purely legally, I do not understand why the United States can supply weapon "Rebels" in Syria, and Russia rebels in the Donbass-can not. Apparently, this is from the same series of double standards, when Google-translator translates any “rebels” as “rebels”, but if “pro-russian rebels” is “pro-Russian militants”. American imperial hypocrisy and control of thinking.
But, nevertheless, even though the leadership of the Russian Federation had both grounds and opportunities - no one supplied military equipment from Russia to the Donbass. Private convoys with humanitarian aid were to admit that among food and medicine they could bring a couple of SVDs or Fagotov I could, but all this was a private initiative of individual citizens or public organizations, but by no means part of the Kremlin’s policy.
2. Where did the military equipment and most of the weapons from the militia come from? There is only one source - the Ukrainian army. There are several options for obtaining weapons from the army, trophies, transfers of individual soldiers or entire units to the side of the militia or a banal purchase (knowingly the greed of Ukrainian ensigns is a legendary phenomenon for a long time).
Remember where the first few BMDs came from the militia in Slavyansk - a group of paratroopers went over to the side of the militia (this, by the way, was the last real paratroopers in Ukraine, after that only Nazi crap left, ready to shoot at civilians).
But the legendary "Nona", which the press service of the ATO destroyed on Facebook five times, went to the militia as a trophy. In general, a large number of captured equipment is not surprising - equipment has not been repaired for many years, supply has also been disgusting, here Kolomoisky also sells armies with diluted diesel fuel, from which the engines fade away.
The engine stalled or ran out of gas, and the crew abandoned their vehicles, fleeing. And the militia carefully picks it all up and carefully repairs it. All this time since the beginning of the conflict, I have been keeping personal summaries from the fronts that I don’t publish (I don’t see any reason, because I’m not a military expert, and I receive some of the information from the militia, so I don’t want to give out something important). And in these reports almost every day there were reports of several such trophies.
Well, about the fact that some of the equipment was bought directly from the punishers themselves - this is practically uncovered even in some of the previous reports of Strelov himself (my information also confirms this).
Completes the answer to the question of where military equipment came from the militia, information that the southern boiler received trophies around 70 units of military equipment, including 18 installations "Grad". So with the world on a thread a couple of hundred pieces of equipment and lumped.
3. Regarding the "fighting in the Donbas Russian army." She is not. I have not seen a single “polite green man” in all the time, nor have I heard a single reliable mention of them, there is not a single video with Russian soldiers, not a single photo, not a single proof (except for the tattoo “Airborne Troops” exposed by Sharii exposed in Sharii ").
Yes, there are volunteers from Russia - Afghans, Cossacks, just not indifferent citizens - so what? Is there still a detachment of Serbian Chetniks - is Serbia attacked Ukraine? There is even a team of anti-fascists from Germany - did Merkel send them?
Another very simple argument: if the Russian army had fought against the Ukrainian army, then, given the current horrific condition of the Ukrainian military equipment and the degree of incompetence of the Ukrainian military, the Russians would already be engaged in stripping Ternopil.
No, of course, in the visions of Tymchuk, a schizophrenic, he personally neutralized forty thousand special forces soldiers of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and destroyed the famous Taman Division, but in reality the division is located at a permanent location and does not know that Tymchuk defeated her.
In the same unpleasant reality for the Kiev junta, several hundred Ukrainian soldiers from the southern boiler crossed the border and surrendered to the Russian border guards, after which they were fed, washed and sent home. This does not fit in with the picture of the Hunt propaganda picture of ruthless Russian aggression, but the victims of the TV have long lost the habit of thinking independently and making any logical conclusions.
Summing up the above: Definitely there is a “Putin’s cunning plan” (HSP) for gaining financial and economic independence from the United States in particular and the West in general. Definitely there is a plan for several years to re-equip the Russian army. But the Crimea was purely impromptu, but there was nothing at all about the Donbass - everything that happened was a purely local initiative. It’s just that the residents of the South-East of the former Ukraine decided on a massive scale that they don’t want to live in a country in which neo-Nazi executioners can kill with impunity the citizens of this country with particular cruelty (as it happened first in Odessa and then in Mariupol).
There is no cunning plan for Putin in the Donbas. There is no interference of the Kremlin in the affairs of New Russia. But this does not mean that the New Russia will not be able to cope on its own, and this does not mean that you do not need to fight against the Nazi junta.
In addition to the cruelty and meanness of the illegal Kiev regime, there is one more, purely mercantile, reason to distance oneself as far as possible from Kiev - in a few months all of Ukraine will be worse off than in the Donbas today.
The only way to somehow mitigate the fall of Ukraine is as quickly as possible to overthrow the suicidal regime of the American puppets, burning the country in a fire of civil war. But while the zombies are chained to their televisions and firmly believe in a "bright European future" - Ukraine continues to fly rapidly to hell ...
Putin’s cunning plan: it’s hard to look for a black cat in a dark room ...
