A compelling new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting top Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov observing how the United States keeps trying to impose its hegemonic will on a Eurasian Continent thousands of miles away from its own borders it can’t even protect, says he further stated: “There are always solutions…From any confrontation, from any difficult situation, there are always ways out…When the Europeans sober up from the American bourbon a little bit, and when they finally realize that we should on our own take care of the fate of our continent, Europe, maybe even Eurasia, then it will happen…That’s not a matter for the nearest future, but then the time will come for a reassessment of our relations”—a statement quickly joined by the most populous Eurasian nation China mocking Washington’s pressure for it to take a side in the Ukrainian conflict when Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian posted a dark human figure pictured with a gun held to its head by a hand painted in the US flag’s colors with the caption overhead reading “Take my Side!”.
Among the many things historians will debate and discuss for the rest of this century, this report notes, at the top of the list will be why European nations blindly followed the United States in placing sanctions on Russia after the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine was launched—is actual lunacy because Russia’s world’s largest $75-trillion in natural resource wealth protected by the world’s largest nuclear weapons arsenal makes it impossible to sanction—and whose main consequence of caused top Kremlin spokesman Peskov to reveal this morning: “The prestige of the US Dollar and the Euro has been greatly shaken by anti-Russia sanctions, which now drive more and more countries to switch to national currencies in settlements with foreign partners…Indeed, against the backdrop of these thug-like sanctions games, the prestige of the Dollar and the Euro has been shaken, most importantly, the role of the Dollar as the main reserve currency…This process is now at its initial stages, but it is no longer possible to stop it…The entire Bretton Woods system that allowed America to be at the top of the economic pyramid of the world for many decades is now beginning to erode…There are a lot of options here, and this is all a prototype of the future economic system, the formation of which we are now witnessing”.
Fast awakening to the American-led sanction lunacy against Russia, this report continues, are those like Polish Prime Minister Mateusz, who yesterday declared: “I must say this very clearly: the sanctions we have imposed so far don’t work…The best evidence is the ruble exchange rate…The ruble exchange rate, this litmus test, has returned to the level it was before the Russian aggression against Ukraine…What does it mean?…It means that all economic, financial, budgetary, and monetary measures have not worked as some leaders wished…It needs to be said very loudly”—a declaration quickly joined by former top British diplomat Alastair Crooke most accurately warning: “In many ways, Europe has not sanctioned Russia, it has sanctioned itself…I don’t see any sign that Europeans gave any thought to the strategic consequences of what they were doing…They go into these things without any thinking and they suddenly say ‘we’re going to divest ourselves from any reliance on Russian oil or gas within the year…How?…People are going to feel a huge amount of pain … Gas and electricity have gone up 50%, they’ll probably go up another 100% before the end of this year…How are people going to survive with this?”.
As a consequence of this American-led sanction lunacy, this report details, it is now being grimly reported: “Consumer prices in the 19 countries that use the Euro currency rose by an annual rate of 7.5% in March, according to data released on Friday by the European Union statistics agency…Spiking energy costs are the main factor driving inflation higher…It’s the fifth straight month that inflation in the Eurozone has set a record, bringing it to the highest level since recordkeeping for the Euro began in 1997…The latest reading smashed the 5.9% high set in February”—a grim report now joined by Germany – Europe’s largest economy – slashing its 2022 growth forecast from the predicted 4.6% to 1.8%, and revealing:. “We were already having a bad time thanks to the omicron wave and now things are even more bleak…The inflation rate jumped to a more than 30-year high, and is expected to rise by 7.3% in March compared to the same period last year…The prices for natural gas and mineral oil products have again risen noticeably and are having a significant impact on the high inflation rate”—this week it saw the Bank of England revealing that 51% of Britons are spending less on non-essentials, 34% conserve gas and electricity usage, while 31% spend less on food and other essential products, and saw them warning: “This really is a historic shock to real incomes…The shock from energy prices this year will be larger than every single year in the 1970s”—a warning now joined by Russia cutting off all natural gas supplies to Britain yesterday.
While viewing the catastrophe Europe has wrought upon itself by blindly following the United States, this report notes, it caused Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to state: “Since the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis, China has shared its wisdom to overcome it and has made efforts in five areas…Firstly, we assist in promoting peace negotiations…Furthermore, we resolutely support the fundamental principles of the development of international relations…The third point is China characterizing its position is its opposition to Cold War methods…The fourth factor will always be China’s protection of each state’s legitimate interests…Finally, we intend to firmly uphold peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region…We fear that the United States under the pretext of its so-called Indo-Pacific strategy will seek to create warring blocs in Asia and stir up trouble for the region”—under the protection of both Russia and China, today it saw Saudi Arabia welcoming it ceasefire agreement with Yemen to end this Western colonial paid for 7-year bloody conflict—and under the protection of both Russia and China, yesterday Israel and the United Arab Emirates concluded five months of negotiations by signing an historic free trade agreement, following up on the 2020 Abraham Accords that formally established relations between the two nations initiated by President Donald Trump.
With nations like Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United Arab Emirates choosing peace over lunatic Russian sanctions, this report notes, it caused the leftist Washington Post to lament today: “Much of the world does not share the combination of moral outrage and geopolitical self-interest that has forged democracies in Europe, North America and the Pacific Rim into a solid coalition arrayed against Moscow’s war”—saw these leftist war propagandists further screaming: “Under Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, some members of his left-wing political party — unconscionably — chose this moment to inaugurate a friendship committee with Russia”—but in whose leftist scream failed to mention that the Mexican government was just forced to scrap a gasoline subsidy in its border regions because of the millions of Americans flooding into their country to buy fuel they can’t afford in their nation.
Quickly after the World Trade Organization slashed its 2022 global trade forecast from 4.7% to 2.5% because of the conflict in Ukraine and lunatic Russian sanctions, this report continues, troubling economic articles began appearing in America like ““A Paradigm Shift Western Media Hasn’t Grasped Yet” – Russian Ruble Relaunched, Linked To Gold & Commodities”, “US Central Bank Warns Of Housing Bubble, Says Surging Home Prices Are “Unhinged” From Market Fundamentals” and “All Hell Is Breaking Loose In The Global Economy”—in response to this looming catastrophe, it saw the socialist Biden Regime’s top economic advisor Cecilia Rouse warning that the situation surrounding Ukraine could lead to famine in Africa and the Middle East—a warning coming at the same time the lunatic Biden Regime is paying American farmers not to plant over 4-million acres under in up to 15-year Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contracts, which has now caused top Republican Party lawmakers in the US Senate to exclaim: “Allowing crop production on CRP lands is a critical step for stabilizing food prices that have skyrocketed in recent months, and to help American growers fulfill the unmet global demand for grains that threatens the lives of tens of millions of people, which may only worsen if not sufficiently addressed in the short term”.
In the latest example of how the truth is being kept from the American people about the “Special De-Nazification Operation” to liberate Ukraine, this report details, this past Friday it saw Fox News host Brett Baier interviewing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and asking him about the Nazi forces in the Azov Battalion shooting Russian POWs, to which Zelenskyy replied: “They are what they are”—a question and answer, however, Fox News edited out so no American could see it—if the American people were allowed see such truths, they would understand the multitudes of horrifying eyewitness testimonial videos of ordinary Ukraine peoples describing how these Nazi forces are wantonly killing everyone they encounter—and if not censored, would also see these Americans understanding the truths documented in articles like “Here’s The Real Story, Not The Propaganda Version, Of the Pregnant Woman From The Mariupol Maternity Ward”, “Ukrainian Ultra-Nationalism – A Glimpse Into Pure Hatred”, “US Veteran Who Volunteered To Fight For Ukraine Describes ‘Suicide Mission’” and “Ukraine Attempting To Walk Away From The Geneva Convention”.
Though President Zelenskyy brushed off as “They are what they are” his rapidly diminishing remaining Nazi forces now holed up in their last major stronghold in Mariupol, this report notes, this morning his top presidential advisor Oleksiy Arestovych was more truthful when he described the importance of the ongoing struggle over the port city of Mariupol, saying its salvation or fall could determine the eventual outcome of the war in “the next week or two”, and who told the Ukrainian people: “I want to say that the next week or two will be uneven…There will be reports that we are winning, counterattacking and repelling in some areas…However, there will also be information that in some parts of the front, particularly in the east, the situation is complicated…You need to be emotionally, organizationally and consciously ready for this”.
As to what Ukraine is actually “winning” in this conflict, this report concludes, is a propaganda war that today sees lying leftist American articles appearing like “Russia Pulls Back From Battered Kyiv Region In Major Shift Of War To East”—in factually reality there is no “major shift” occurring as the Russian military has accomplished its goals in the Kiev region, and as confirmed by top President Zelenskyy advisor Alexey Arestovich, who angrily shot back at the reporters questing him about Ukraine’s so-called victories: “If you think that we do not suffer losses, then you are deeply mistaken…They have practically destroyed our military industry and in many ways are finishing it off…And in many ways they are finishing off the civilian one, deliberately destroying it”—as to what remains, this morning top Kremlin spokesman Peskov reiterated: “We state that the sovereignty of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics has been recognized by Russia…We recognized their independence, we recognized them as independent states…The operation was initiated at the request of these two republics…One of the main objectives of the operation is to rescue these republics and restore their statehood within the borders of 2014, within the borders that are enshrined in the constitution of both the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics”—and among the latest most notable urgent war bulletins issued by the Ministry of Defense (MoD), sees them including;
“Polish Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the National Security and Defence Committee Jaroslaw Kaczynski said in an interview with Germany’s Welt am Sonntag that his country is open to the deployment of American nuclear weapons on its territory”.
“Inspector General of the German Army, the Bundeswehr, Eberhard Zorn, has stated that there is no scenario in which NATO forces will be sent to Ukraine”.
“Trade unions in the Greek city of Thessaloniki have refused to take part in the transfer of US and NATO military equipment from Alexandropoulos to Eastern Europe”.
“During the night, the strategic aviation of Russia’s Aerospace Forces has struck 51 Ukrainian military facilities…They include: four command posts, two launching systems of the Osa-AKM surface-to-air missile systems in the vicinity of the Barvenkovo and Slavyansk communities, two artillery batteries, two multiple-launch rocket systems, four field artillery and missile warehouses in the vicinity of the communities of Konstantinovka and Krestische, as well as 32 defended posts and areas of concentration of the military equipment of the Ukrainian armed forces”.
“Russia’s Armed Forces have eliminated an oil refinery and three fuel and lubricants depots near Odessa using high-precision sea-and air-launched missiles”.
“Today the air defense systems of Russia’s Aerospace Forces shot down two Ukrainian drones in the vicinity of the Kudryashovka and Shurovka communities”.
“In all, since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, 125 warplanes and 88 helicopters, and 383 unmanned aerial vehicles, 221 surface-to-air missile systems, 1,903 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 207 multiple-launch rocket systems, 805 field artillery armaments and mortars, as well as 1,781 units of special military automotive equipment have been eliminated by Russian military forces”.
