“One must begin this discussion by accepting the fact that there was already a war happening in Ukraine for the eight years preceding the Russian military incursion in February 2022.
And, this war by the government in Kiev… claimed the lives of around 14,000 people, many of them children, and displaced around 1.5 million more …
The government in Kiev, and especially its neo-Nazi battalions, carried out attacks against these peoples … precisely because of their ethnicity. ..
On September 26, 2022, three of the four strings of the Nord Stream and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines were damagedafter an underwater blast. The pipeline’s operator Nord Stream AG reported that the damage was unprecedented and it was impossible to estimate the timeframe for repairs.
Germany, Denmark, and Sweden launched separate investigations into the suspected sabotage, with German media reporting trust issues among the three EU nations. The Russian chief prosecutor’s office said it had opened an inquiry into possible international terrorism.
Here’s something else you will never see in the western media.
You’ll never see the actual text of Putin’s security demands that were made a full 2 months before the war broke out.
And, the reason you won’t see them, is because his demands were legitimate, reasonable and necessary.
All Putin wanted was basic assurances that NATO was not planning to put its bases, armies and missile sites on Russia’s border.
In other words, he was doing the same thing that all responsible leaders do to defend the safety and security of their own people.
