This is a red line that will be conveyed to Biden in Geneva. The days of appeasement of the frothing at the mouth lunatics in NATzO
are gone. And you can already see NATzO scrambling.
Imho, after Biden was elected, and the previous U.S. Ukraine players was put into the Biden Administration: Rice ( in charge of his Domestic Policy Council), Nuland (serving as Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs) , Samantha Powers (serving as the Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development.), then the Ukraine versus Russia was heated up.
Yes, indeed. I expected the Biden "regime" to use Ukraine to divert attention from the farcical 2020 US election which saw ridiculous vote counts in favour of the D. Party
given the pervious 40 years. Tens of millions of extra votes came out of the woodwork. In spite of Covid, this is not credible. It was pure ballot stuffing of
the 4 am 100% in favour of Biden variety. It looks like the R. Party also tried to pad its way to power since it likely anticipated rampant, Chicago-style D. Party
ballot fraud. But the D. Party leveraged the MSM anti-Trump hysteria to win this ballot stuffing battle.
The plan was for the Kiev regime to stage its own variants of Operations Flash and Storm when basically all Serbs were ethnically cleansed from Croatia. The
Kiev regime and its supporters have been actively talking about getting rid of the "Moskal illegal squatters" in the Donbass since 2014. They believe in the blood
libel fiction that ethnic Russians settled in the Donbass after the Holodomor genocide wiped out the local ethnic Ukrainians. Anyone in the west with some
knowledge of international history will know that the Bolsheviks attached the Donbass to their creation, the Ukrainian SSR, to increase its industrial capacity
since its was mostly rural without these lands. The ethnic Russians in the Donbass (and other ethnic groups such as Serbs and Greeks) were not transplanted,
the borders were changed without their vote. But Banderites and various Ukrainian nationalists love to twist and steal history.
Lukashenko was supposed to be deposed as well in some sort of one, two punch in Putin's face. Both operations flopped and Biden is running around setting up
a summit. I expect the US side to try to pull the same stunt they tried to pull against China in Alaska a few weeks ago. They will try to corner Russia with
some BS about human rights abuse and military aggression. Because moving troops on Russian soil is not allowed in the imperial hypocrite eyes of the USA and
because Navalny is supposedly "the" leader of the Russian opposition and not a fringe foreign sponsored lunatic.
