Putin’s Russia Has One Goal: To Ensure Ukraine Doesn’t Exist

Ukraine
Russian President Vladimir Putin watches a military parade on Victory Day, which marks the 77th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two, in Red Square in central Moscow, Russia May 9, 2022.

AN UNPROCESSED VERSION HAS BEEN PROVIDED SEPARATELY.

How Can Ukraine ‘talk’ with Russia when Putin’s goal seems to be to ensure Ukraine doesn’t exist? Imagine it’s 1944 in Europe, and some Allied leader says the following: “We will have a peace to build tomorrow, let us never forget that…. We will have to do this with Jews and Germans around the table. The end of the discussion and the negotiation will be set by Jews and Germans. But it will not be done in denial, nor in exclusion of each other, nor even in humiliation.”

I suspect most people would agree that the proposal is preposterous, obscene, and doomed to failure. How could Adolf Hitler and a representative of the Jewish community possibly talk about anything? Hitler is determined to annihilate Jews, and Jews want to survive. A meeting of the minds is impossible under such zero-sum conditions.

Replace Jews with Ukraine and Germans with Russia, and you’ll get the statement made by French President Emmanuel Macron in Strasbourg on May 9. Although Russia’s ongoing genocide in Ukraine is nowhere nearly as destructive as the Holocaust—after all, the war has been going on for only three months—the logic of the negotiation is identical in both cases. Just as Jews could negotiate with Germans only after the latter’s defeat, apology, and renunciation of anti-Semitism and Nazism, so too Ukraine can negotiate with Russia only after its defeat, apology, and renunciation of anti-Ukrainianism and Nazism.

Until that happens, Putin’s Russia will remain a rogue fascist state committed to destroying Ukraine and Ukrainians and expanding its empire to all the nations controlled by Soviet Russia. As a deputy of the Moscow city council recently said, Russia must “de-Nazify” Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Moldova, and Kazakhstan.

Russian policymakers have repeatedly said that Ukraine is an artificial construct and that Ukrainians don’t exist. A Duma deputy has declared that “the very notion of Ukraine should not exist in the future.” Neither should “the notion of Ukrainian.” He says his views are “radical,” when in fact, they’re mainstream in today’s Russia. Thus, the Enlightenment “educational publishing house … has ordered its employees to drop as many references to Ukraine and Kyiv from the texts because in the words of one editor, ‘we must make it look as if Ukraine does not exist’.” And, a few weeks ago, one Russian publicist proposed a detailed blueprint of the Ukrainian nation’s extermination.

Russian soldiers have killed, raped, and looted with abandon, committing multiple war crimes in the process. At the same time, Russians have destroyed and looted almost 200 Ukrainian cultural heritage sites. Just two examples: A museum dedicated to the 18th-century Ukrainian philosopher, Hryhory Skovoroda, was shelled in early May; a few days later, a cache of ancient Scythian gold jewelry and artifacts was stolen from a museum in Melitopil.

Tens of thousands of Ukrainian civilians have been killed in Mariupil; thousands more have died in other Ukrainian villages, towns, and cities. Hundreds of thousands have been “ethnically cleansed” and forcibly deported to Russia. Thousands of children have been kidnapped.

Russia’s actions today are little different from its actions in the early 1930s, when Moscow launched an anti-Ukrainian campaign recognized as genocide by Rafael Lemkin, the Polish-Jewish scholar who coined the term. Then as now, Moscow aimed to destroy Ukrainians physically as well as their “tradition, folk lore and music, the national language and literature, the national spirit.” Then as now, if Moscow’s plans succeed, “Ukraine will be as dead”—to quote Lemkin—”as if every Ukrainian were killed, for it will have lost that part of it which has kept and developed its culture, its beliefs, its common ideas, which have guided it and given it a soul, which, in short, made it a nation rather than a mass of people.”

Given Putin Russia’s clearly genocidal aims in Ukraine, just what are Ukrainians and Russians supposed to talk about? Indeed, what could President Macron or any of his Western counterparts talk about with Putin? About the numbers of Ukrainians he should kill? About the number of missiles he should rain down on Ukrainian cities? About the pace of the genocide? About the construction of ghettos?

Like Hitler, Putin must first be defeated and his country de-Nazified before any kind of reasonable dialogue can take place between Russia and Ukraine—as well as between Russia and the West. That doesn’t mean that diplomacy should cease: miracles do happen. Nor does defeat mean Russia’s collapse or destruction. But it does mean, at a minimum, Russia’s withdrawal from Ukraine and, arguably more important, Putin’s departure. The West should have no illusions. Even if Putin avails himself of some “off ramps,” his Russia will remain a threat to world peace, and renewed war—with Ukraine or with other post-Soviet states—will be well-nigh inevitable. European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen was absolutely right to say that Russia “is today the most direct threat to the world order.”

She could have added that it will remain so as long as Putin remains in power. Only after he leaves will it be possible, as one Russian commentator recommends, for Russia to “admit defeat, conclude a peace, and move on to reforms as soon as possible.”

    NEW: A Ukrainian-owned Bayraktar drone strike sunk a Russian Serna-class landing craft at Snake Island in the Black Sea, per satellite photos taken today.

    Ukraine took out Russian air defenses and resupply vessels with the Bayraktar drones.

      did you look at those photos? on them, the Russian ship is completely intact, but what is at the bottom, with a cabin in the middle, is very similar to the Ukrainian “Centaur”. did Bayraktar drown him? 🙂

      I already advised you to first check the information, especially if it is from Ukrainians who lie like they breathe. 😉 look what happened, you wanted to hurt the Russians, but instead you crap yourself 🙂

        Wrong. There appear to be two Serna-class Russian landing crafts; one is sunk, the other not. There is also a much larger barge, which appears to be pumping water off the stern. (You might think it’s trying to raise the sunken landing craft, but I don’t believe there’s enough enclosed compartments on the landing craft to do that.)

    This is part of the false narrative being peddled by the west when it’s clear as day western countries, especially US, need wars and conflicts to sustain their economies.

    It is ‘putin wants this, putin wants that’ when massive arms are being transferred so that the bloodshed can continue.

    Nobody’s interested in a ceasefire and/or negotiations, not caring at all that it could soon end in a nuclear exchange.

    US and NATO are using ukrainian blood as currency to wage their long-awaited proxy war against russia.This is the real narrative being swept under the carpet.

    But their gamble could end badly for them once putin decides to use tactical nukes against the neo-nazists. Without the neo-nazists, west’s PROXY WAR will vanish like morning dew in strong sunlight.

    The US under joe biden is like the Third Reich, eager to wage war on russia after having defeated the english and then the red indian tribes.

    Biden thinks third time’s still a charm, but russia can’t be defeated.

    The US has been at war for over 92% of its existence, won many wars but lose some, too.

    One famous loss, or defeat, was the 1791 battle of wabash, where red indian braves slaughtered a sizeable portion of the US Army. The defeat sent a wave of panic in new york city which briefly witnessed bank runs.

    Another defeat was in 1941 at pearl harbor, after US deviously lured japs into launching ‘sneak attack’ that killed 2,000 sailors.

    Yet another one was in 2001, the 9/11 incident that US allowed to happen by refusing to nullify multi-entry visas used by the hijackers.

    Thus US has a history of wars filled with many victories and several defeats betraying the country as a war-loving entity.

    Biden today is continuing that proud tradition. As a result, his hands are stained with blood. Blood of e-u-r-o-p-e.

    Naturally, the US likes to hurl falsehoods against rivals, like russia. First, the US anoints some nation or someone as ‘bogeyman’ and then proceeds to hurl falsehoods at the bogeyman and once the falsehoods are repeated enough times, they become the gospel truth.

    Today, the proof of the US false pudding is in the endless false narratives being churned out 24/7 against putin. The land of false pudding is also the land of false narratives.

    Biden is an old old old old hand at whipping up false puddings. He once assertively alleged the driver who ‘broadsided his wife’s car’ was drunk. It was completely and wholkly false, and biden regretted it only much much later. Same too on iraq and wmd. Now, russia.

    The US, has energetically refused to accept that dogbarking has been the direct casus belli of the ukraine war. Not anyone wanting this or that.

    Dogbarking is totally unacceptable in this day and age. Once dogbarking was permissible, but only because communications were primitive.

    But today? Today, CIA & NSA’s supercomputers are capable of automatically recording every wireless call and every mobile call around the world, analysing every word, every tone, every vocal signature, discarding and keeping particularly ‘interesting’ ones. THAT’S HOW ADVANCED it is now.

    So why use dogbarking against russia. It’s illegal, immoral and totally unacceptable. Result? War in ukraine !!! WTF!!! What devil still worships dogbarking? US & NATO. THE DEVILS on Earth.

      The only link that I could find between “dog barking” (or your spelling, “dogbarking”) and intelligence agencies is a speech a few years ago by North Korea’s Dear Leader. So I’m guessing from that that either you are North Korean, or you’re working for them. Otherwise I have no idea what your gibbering about.

    The Russian trolls have not refuted the author’s original article about the genocidal goals of Putin’s Russia, because the author is correct. All the trolls know how to do is point to some moral failing of the USA or somebody else, but never look in the mirror at Russian actions and moral failings. It is clear the author is correct: “Like Hitler, Putin must first be defeated and his country de-Nazified” including all you morally repugnant fascist Russian trolls.

    So the author is Ukrainian. Does this mean he is slanted? Well of course. He has written books based on this slant. But is his slant WRONG? With a casual glance, I do not think it is.

    Have Ukrainians fibbed here and there? Well, yes. Here and there. But they are not like the Russians who ALWAYS lie.

    As to Maga maga, I suspect a troll has stolen the name based on writing style. But frankly political extremists (on either end) generally land on the side of China or Russia anyway.

    Russia needs to be defeated and driven out of Ukraine. That is an achievable goal. Regime change in a nuclear-armed Russia is not, even if we (along with the rest of NATO) engaged in an all-out war with them. That’s because, unlike WWII, where we could fight the German state to the death because past a point they had no means to oppose a conventional defeat and occupation, the Russians do. If we had extensive ballistic missile defenses, it might be a different argument, but we don’t and that’s just the reality of the situation.

    The claim that Russia will simply try again unless there is regime change strikes me as unlikely. The Russian economy is a fraction of Europe’s and their military has not been able to defeat Ukraine. The likelihood that they will try next against the Baltics (which are NATO members) is absurd. All the war has done is consolidate NATO, encourage Finland and Sweden to join, and leave Ukraine in a position where, whether they join NATO after the war or not, their own position is very strong. My guess is that post war, they’ll develop their own nukes to prevent this all from happening again. Putin is old, sick and unlikely to recover from what has been a disastrous error on his part. And he has nothing like the hold over Russia that Hitler had on Germany right up until the end.

    In case you haven’t noticed, Putin no longer talks about nukes. The change in rhetoric came after British PM stated that if Russia uses nukes, GB will respond. The Duma members may say something idiotic about using nukes, but they are known to be brain dead as the only requirement for their Duma membership is that they vote for Putin’s laws.
    And there is one more thing. Nuclear warheads deteriorate: the fissile explosives, the standard explosives, the electronics, the sensors… Considering how Russians had taken care of their stored equipment, I doubt many of the nukes are functional.

    You need to understand the main thing: the United States is hysterical because the United States is losing the war in Ukraine. The only thing is to intervene directly in the conflict. And this will mean the end of the US country.

    And here are the real numbers:
    In total since the beginning of the special military operation, Russia has destroyed: 165 aircraft, 125 helicopters, 858 unmanned aerial vehicles, 304 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3,051 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 372 multiple rocket launchers, 1,507 field artillery pieces and mortars, as well as 2898 units of special military vehicles.

    Will the old American idiot decide on a nuclear war because of a slap in the impoverished Ukraine? We will see. But one thing is clear: the United States will cease to exist not as a country, but as a continent.

Ukraine is full to the brim with people sporting swastika tatoos and venerating the Nazis and their Ukrainian allies and Russia/Soviet Union is the country that suffered the most from Nazi depredations and the author says that Russia must be de-Nazified?

    A demobilized French soldier, author of the book “Get up and go thanks to science” Adrien Boke went to Ukraine on a humanitarian mission and spent three weeks there.

    Upon his return, he decided to convey to the French information about the events he had witnessed in Ukraine.

    “I take full responsibility for what I say. While in Ukraine, I witnessed war crimes. All of them were committed by the Ukrainian army. But in France we don’t talk about it!

    When I returned to France from Ukraine, I was shocked: TV channels invite as experts people who have not been to Ukraine and do not know anything about what is happening there now. However, they dare to speculate about these events. Between what I hear from the TV screen and what I saw with my own eyes is an abyss.

    Azov fighters are everywhere. With neo-Nazi stripes. It shocks me that Europe is supplying weapons to neo-Nazis. Not only do they not hide their views. They advertise them. I worked with these people and treated them.

    Being there, there was nothing I could do. Just watch and make videos. I have this footage and will use it as evidence of Ukraine’s crimes.

    I witnessed how the Ukrainian military shot through the knees of captured Russian soldiers and shot in the head higher-ranking officers.

    I have personally seen American videographers making fake footage from the scene of the events staging.

    All destroyed civilian buildings, given out by Ukraine for bombardment of civilians, are nothing more than the result of inaccurate shooting by Ukrainians at military facilities.

    The Armed Forces of Ukraine hide ammunition in residential buildings at night, without even informing the residents. This is called using people as a shield, ”Boke quotes one of the French media.

    The Washington Post recently drew attention to the fact that Ukrainian troops are placing military equipment in residential areas of cities in an attempt to counter the Russian Armed Forces, which threatens the lives of civilians.

    Boke also spoke about the untruthfulness of Western media reports about the events in Bucha.

    “Bucha is a staging. The bodies of the dead were moved from other places and deliberately placed in such a way as to produce shocking footage, ”the French author noted.

    The documents confirming this were submitted to the Federal Security Service – how, who – there are relevant intercepts – on what transport he came to this settlement and created the conditions for organizing this provocation.

    Soon all the collected evidence about the crimes of the Nazis in Ukraine will be seen by the whole world. And the most important thing is the help of Western countries to the Nazis of Ukraine and assistance in their crimes.

    In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, Russia and the Donbass militia have destroyed the Ukrainians:

    165 aircraft, 125 helicopters, 879 unmanned aerial vehicles, 306 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3,098 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 381 multiple rocket launchers, 1,525 field artillery pieces and mortars, and 2,934 special military vehicles. Destroyed more than 48,600 Bandera Nazis and mercenaries.

    A simple example: in any war, the approximate losses and wounded are 1:3. After 3,000 casualties, field hospitals are deployed. There is not a single Russian military hospital in Ukraine. Consequently, Russia’s losses are less than 3,000 people.

    However, in Ukraine they talk about 75,000 dead Russians. It’s the Russians. Not the Ukrainians of Donbass, not one of the 200 peoples of Russia, but Russians. Russophobia and Nazism are openly visible.

    Judging by the satellite images, Ukraine will soon collapse as a country despite the huge help from the West.

    Everyone understands that not a single NATO soldier will go to fight for a third world country inhabited (in their opinion) by third-class people. War with NATO is a nuclear war. I know for sure that our Polish soldiers will definitely not participate in a direct clash with Russia. Our lands will return to us in any case. And we will quickly clear them of Bandera Nazis. We are not Russians, we will do it faster.

      This is a very Ukrainian agitation, I applaud! Why isn’t Biden spending money on oppressed African Americans? Why is money being spent to protect white Ukrainians? Why is money going into the white business of war? I don’t know, do you?

    A journalist from the United States, Lara Logan, during the broadcast of the Real America’s Voice program, accused the Western media of lying about the Russian special operation in Ukraine:

    “I really think there is so much misinformation right now. We have never seen anything like it. I’ve been covering military conflicts for 35 years now and I’ve never seen anyone with their fingernails decorated with the Ukrainian flag. I mean, we are being driven into such a framework where we have to hate Vladimir Putin and believe everything bad that is said about him and love Ukraine. There is simply no other position.”

    A lot of things are happening in Ukraine that we don’t talk about. This concerns the history of Ukraine, the Azov battalion, which is funded by the US and NATO. In the photographs, they are holding NATO flags and a swastika at the same time.

    They use the Nazi emblem from the SS. Everywhere in the Ukrainian army you can see this emblem of their cult. Even female soldiers wear this black badge of their cult.

    The White House pretends that it doesn’t matter that it’s only a small number of troops, but that’s not true. Azov has carved its way into eastern Ukraine through assassinations. We don’t want to admit it.

    That is why Crimea voted for independence, why Crimea wanted to be with Russia. The Western media and the West do not want to admit the reality that Western Ukraine supports the Nazis. There was the headquarters of the Nazis SS, – said the journalist.

    I like the way Bandera’s pigs are on fire. The whole world cannot be deceived. You can squeal, hysteria, complain to anyone, but you will be destroyed, Bendera Nazis.

    A correspondent from Venezuela spoke about the lies of the Western media about the situation around Ukraine:

    The Western media present a lot of false information about the special operation of the Russian Federation to protect the Donbass and about what is happening in Ukraine. This was announced on Saturday, March 26, in an interview by a Venezuelan correspondent for the TeleSUR news network.

    According to him, he became stronger in this opinion when he arrived in Ukraine. Moreover, in order to tell the truth about what is happening, I had to overcome the financial and administrative difficulties associated with the US blockade of Venezuela.

    “There is a lot of toxic, manipulative, false information in the world media. Many in Latin America and the Caribbean get their information from the world’s mainstream media. At the same time, they have not talked about the tragedy of Donbass in recent years,” the journalist noted.

    As the reporter emphasized, much that is happening at the moment is hushed up.

    “Not a word about constant bombardments, civilian casualties. Many media show this conflict as a struggle between dictatorship and democracy represented by Ukraine. We know that this is not true, we know what the Nazis really did here. But people are poisoned by the lies of the major Western media. The task of a journalist is to tell the truth, to convey to people what is really happening, ”he said.

    TeleSUR is a Latin American and Caribbean news network headquartered in Caracas.

    Earlier, on March 20, French volunteer sniper Ervan Castel, who arrived in Donbass in 2014 and joined the ranks of the militia, accused Western countries of a flood of fake news after the start of the Russian special operation. He named the material of the Italian edition La Stampa as one of the examples, where the photos after the strike by the Ukrainian Tochka-U missile in the center of Donetsk were cited as “confirmation of the bombardment of Kyiv by the Russian army.”

    @Andrew P Most Russians, although the number of supporters is slowly dwindling. There is this thing called “Freedom of Russia Legion” with a white-blue-white banner. They burn the recruitment offices, etc. The main thing though is that Putin was selected by the FSB from a small pool of other FSB people. The same thing will happen if Putin dies. Nobody is going to ask Russian people…

    People from all over the world tell the truth and no lies and propaganda will shut their mouths:

    “Amazing”: German journalist Thomas Röper spoke about the attitude of Ukrainians towards Russians in the liberated territories.

    German journalist Thomas Röper spoke about the attitude of Ukrainians towards Russians in the liberated territories. He noted that the Ukrainians complained to him only about the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and not about the Russian military, which seemed to him “amazing.”

    Roper visited the liberated territories of Donbass and said that residents of Melitopol and Volnovakha complained that they were robbed, tortured and killed by Ukrainian soldiers.

    “I asked people about the behavior of Russian and Ukrainian soldiers and was surprised that only Ukrainians were engaged in robbery, especially before the retreat,” the journalist said.

    According to Reper, civilians noted that the Russian military behaved correctly and tried to help them, which cannot be said about the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    “I expected that there would be at least some complaints about the Russians, but I was wrong. Amazing! Even in Volnovakha, a city smaller than Mariupol and also completely destroyed. When retreating from there, the Armed Forces of Ukraine deliberately fired at the hospital from tanks,” the journalist said.

    Earlier, residents of Mariupol spoke about the horrendous conditions in which they had to exist. According to them, they ate pigeons and drank water from the pool, and the fighters of the national battalions took away food from them.

    In the course of a special operation in Ukraine, documentary evidence was obtained that in the immediate vicinity of the Russian borders, in fact, components of biological weapons were created. In violation of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. Possible methods and mechanisms for destabilizing the epidemiological situation in the post-Soviet space were worked out.
    The Parliamentary Commission on Biolaboratories received confirmation of non-compliance by the United States and Ukraine with a ban on the development of bioweapons.
    Evidence has already been obtained in terms of non-compliance by the United States and Ukraine with their obligations to comply with the UN Convention on the Prohibition of the Development of Bioweapons.
    The Commission on Biolaboratories has begun analyzing the reports of the United States and Ukraine for 5 years on the implementation of the Convention on Bioweapons, in addition, the facts of providing false information by Washington and Kyiv to the Secretariat of the Conference on Bioweapons have been established.
    Consideration of these issues (about biolaboratories) will be held at the UN Security Council. The US authorities are obliged to answer many questions.
    Facts have been established that both the United States and Ukraine provided incomplete or inaccurate information. So there is a complete concealment in the reports of information on biological programs with the support of the US Department of Defense in Ukraine. All reports from Ukraine report a lack of national biosecurity research and development programs.
    1. In a number of cases, information on outbreaks of infectious diseases was not provided, which is a mandatory requirement.
    2. There were no reports of the participation of military personnel in the work of laboratories, as well as the facts of the transfer of biomaterials, funding of facilities and programs by the military departments.
    For example, in 2019, as part of a Pentagon program, two laboratories were built in Kyiv and Odessa for the State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection. The answer to the question why the United States needs secret military laboratories in Ukraine, which are not reported in the BTWC reports, is certainly related to the nature of research in the United States.
    There is also evidence of biological weapons research on patients in Ukrainian psychiatric hospitals.
    It is obvious that the Ukrainians were used in the same way as the Third Reich used at one time.
