The level of NATO’s aggressiveness against our country has increased to such an extent that the Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying: “NATO and the EU openly interfere in Russia’s affairs, supporting protest sentiments”. I.e., perhaps for the first time in years, the military organisation of NATO – not the intelligence agencies or propaganda, but the military organisation of the west – has made a transition to a new level of hostility to us.
They are well aware that it will not be possible to take Russia by military force. Here, just a large NATO country – Poland, which has a lot of historical claims to Moscow, held virtual exercises with its army that had the goal of trying to capture Kaliningrad and the region by the forces of the Polish army. The result saddened them – even playing on their own, the Polish command admitted that their army would be defeated in a few days by the troops of the Russian Armed Forces: Four days later, Warsaw was “in danger of falling”. This is if you do not take into account the nuclear forces, after the impact of which there will not even be a “fall” – there will be nothing to “fall”. And they in NATO understand all of this very well.
Therefore, in addition to provocations near our borders in the air and at sea, the focus is already shifting to the field of information and to support subversive operations. The recent meeting between NATO representatives and persons from the Russian opposition emigration cannot be called anything else.
“The Polish Permanent Mission to the EU hosted a meeting between Volkov (head of the network of regional headquarters of opposition leader Aleksey Navalny) and Ashurkov (executive director of the Anti-corruption Foundation) with EU member states, as well as the United States and Britain… The format of ‘EU countries plus the United States plus Britain’ is no longer the EU, it is NATO,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mariya Zakharova said.
The fact that during this conversation, organised by video link, the opposition representatives received instructions from the hands of NATO officers, can be observed unequivocally.
On the part of NATO, this is a transition to a direct program of undermining Russia from within via non-military means, in addition to which military means will take effect at the “right” moment. On the part of the “activists” – full compliance of their activities with Article 275 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation: “State treason,.. i.e., the provision of financial, logistical, consulting or other assistance to a foreign state, international or foreign organisation or their representatives in activities directed against the security of the Russian Federation”. After all, the decision to resume illegal protest actions was made, as M. Zakharova stressed, after a meeting with permanent representatives of NATO countries.
Well, the west took the bit between its teeth, and it is not for nothing that our diplomats started to talk to him in a different tone. The new formula used by Sergey Lavrov at a meeting with a messenger from Brussels who arrived in Russia to “teach democracy” is: “We build our lives based on the fact that the EU is an unreliable partner, at least at this stage”. From this, the chief of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, was taken aback and could not give anything but an excuse: his visit to Moscow, like, showed Russia’s lack of interest in normalising relations with the European Community. And now the EU “stands at a crossroads in relations with Russia” and must decide whether to “move towards cooperation or towards the polarisation of relations”.
Russia has also taken a tough tone in its relations with NATO. On February 9th, the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation for the first time in 30 years refused to participate in a seminar of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) on military doctrines. It is clear to us that the west, in general, and NATO, in particular, are shifting the emphasis of their work against Russia to a different platform, and their military doctrines, if not already modified, will happen in the near future.
At the same time, such a “state of mind” is developing there that one can speak of a quiet panic because they urgently need to change their strategy – Russia, faced with a military threat, not only does not retreat, but, on the contrary, has become stronger, and its tone in conversation has acquired harshness. How else, than confusion, can one explain the words of the newly-made US Secretary of State, Mr. Blinken, who has just surpassed any previous assessments regarding Russia. He said that Russia is “violating the sanctions imposed on it by the US Congress”! The text reads “such a move would also violate US sanctions that Congress has imposed on Russia”. This refers to “Russia’s use of chemical weapons”.
Are they delusional?
No, they have always treated Russia and the Slavs this way, and they will continue to do so. After all, the word “Slav” in their language is consonant with the word “slave”. One get mix them up? They are confused at the level of the subconscious. I saw in the 90s a children’s book published in Russian using the money of the Soros foundation – in it children are presented in pictures and in national clothes of all peoples of the world except … Slavs. As the head of the Soviet intelligence service, Leonid Shebarshin, an extremely well-informed man, once said: “The west wants only one thing from Russia — that it does not exist”.
The transition of NATO to outright subversive actions is the next stage of the confrontation. They raise the stakes. But, perhaps, the most gifted activists, who have already officially become “NATO agents“, will continue their exercises in stages. In any case, some of the most active Russian authorities have already been put on the international wanted list.
And all this, the above, leads to the conclusion that the situation is heating up, first of all. And, secondly, it is clear that Russia started to talk to the west in a different language for the simple reason that, as it turns out, it simply does not understand another language. The European people, who have plundered the whole world for centuries, respect only force. “Bear the burden of the whites!” – wrote the herald of the colonial conquests of England, Rudyard Kipling, justifying such an Anglo-Saxon policy.
And even in diplomacy, the power behind it has a magical effect on “partners”: “The EU is an unreliable partner”, and we are not going to talk to NATO right now. And then suddenly it turns out that they are confused: Russia “violates the sanctions imposed on it by the US Congress”. There -shock…
This is how real politics – both foreign and, for a moment, domestic – is done in the 21st century.
