“I saw a report that Ukraine wants to receive LNG from its overseas masters under the Lend-Lease Treaty, with payment for delivery in two years. Otherwise it will simply freeze to death this coming winter. Just a question. Who said that Ukraine will exist at all on the world map in two years? Although the Americans no longer care – they are so invested in the anti-Russia project that everything else is nothing to them…” (Dmitry Medvedev, 15.06.2022).
The powerful men of Moscow, Kremlin and Duma is showing their heart or sentiments in concern towards Kyiv or Ukraine. Today it’s the former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, the current Deputy Chairman of Security Council is clear in his message. The ones who believes Russia invaded Ukraine to “save” or stop interference of NATO or the EU. No, it is all about power and imperial goals, which is taking over and annexing former USSR republics.
Here is questions the territorial integrity and the sovereignty of Ukraine. He says in 24 months that the Ukraine as we know will no longer exist. We know that the rulers of Moscow wants a puppet President and corrupt cronies in office in Kyiv. That’s what Medvedev wants as well.
The ones that reads the Telegram of Medvedev should be aware that his plays into the sentiments of Russian nationalism and imperialism. The Russian Empire is supposed to become great again. Take back territories and become glorious. Though on the alter of that empire is lives and nations that burned. It was massacres, extra judicial-killings and rapes to get there. The costs of doing it is brutal and sinister. Since, no one wants to be a colony of Moscow or be ordered by Putin. That’s only people delusional about his goals and objectives, which is to a Stalin or a Lenin of our time.
Medvedev is just mocking the arms supplies of Kyiv. That the West and allies of Kyiv wants to help the Defence of the Republic against the Russian invasion, which is a righteous cause. The likes of Medvedev isn’t helping his own cause of domination or imperial glory. They are only showing what sort of war-machine is ordered and what they do.
That people shouldn’t blankly dismiss his words, as his an influential person. That’s why his former texts “On Poland” and “On Sanctions” has mattered. It shows what sort of sentiments that are currently in Russia and by high ranking officials. They really thinks like this and he just say it out loud.
The latest invasion started for over 100 days ago and the Russians thought it would only be a 3 day invasion to a total takeover of Ukraine. So, with this sort of statement. The leaders of Moscow is maybe hoping they have the capability and ability to grind the “win” over. As the European and Western allies isn’t quickly enough giving military aid or trading arms with Kyiv.
The European and Western allies has to prove the likes of Medvedev wrong. The Ukrainian army and leadership has shown resilience and will against a superior army. The Ukrainian people and their will to defend themselves should make Europe proud. As they are on the frontline for the rest of the continent. Since, this is the beginning of the new era of a new Russian Empire.
So, if the Europeans wants to stop that and do that without doing to much. That would be to give the artillery, tanks and missiles the Ukrainians need. Heck, give them the fighter-jets and air-defence up to standard. In such a manner, that it cannot only defend itself against mechanical divisions, but they can make the Russians retreat. As they are not only scorned, but beaten to pulp in foreign land.
That’s what the Western and European allies should have done yesterday. Medvedev and his kind only wants Ukraine deleted from earth. When they are thinking like this. This will not be end, but a start of constant wars. Since, the Russians wants more and after taking the biggest neighbour in the east. They would easily assess the possibility to invade another one. We shouldn’t be shocked by and especially not hearing what the Russian high ranking officials is saying or writing of lately.
All we should do is to show more than just blind solidarity, but also give what Kyiv needs. No one should accept this mockery of Medvedev. Instead, the allies should show why we want Ukraine to stay and never leave. That would humiliate the likes of Medvedev… and it would be a righteous cause. Since, the Russians are the villains and the Ukrainians are the victims here. Ukraine need support, help and arms. The time to do that is now and not tomorrow. Peace.
‘When Moscow sneezes, Kyiv spikes a fever’ – A popular saying.
“Decree of Kyiv Mayor Volodymyr Klitschko to cancel the decision of Prince of Kyiv Yurii Dolgorukyi on the foundation of Moscow in 1147” (AE UA, 10.06.2022)
“In accordance with Articles 319 and 327 of the Ukrainian Civil Code […] repeals the decree of the Grand Duke of Kyiv, founding Moscow issued in 1147, as “a historical misunderstanding”
It has been just a day or so ago since the Russian Duma wanted to revoke their decree of independence of Lithuania. The Ukrainian capital has retorted to the Russian provocation with their own decree. As it states that it was a historical misunderstanding to found the Russian capital in 1147. Kyiv was founded in 482 and we can see the years that had gone since then.
The decree of Kyiv Mayor Klistchko will have no effect or make a standing. Nevertheless, it proves the historical ties and how things were in order. When President Putin wants to speak of colonies and areas of which are bound to not make sovereign decisions. Maybe, he should look into the factors of his “empire” and the creation of the Russian Federation, as it today. Not just cherry-pick the ones to fit his narrative or stories. Because, there could easily be grievances from neighbours back in time. If he wants to play the game of historical connections and who has the rights of a certain area. That could go to Sweden, Finland, Poland, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania or the Kyivian Rus (862-1242), which was the latter who decreed the foundation of Moscow.
That’s why in the early beginnings of the war against Ukraine. When Putin claimed Kyiv didn’t have a nationhood or such. The richness of history and such goes deep. Only a fool and a deluded person would deny that. This is why the ones his invading with his “historical rights” too was initially behind the existence of the city of which he resides and holds power in. Kyiv decreed it and the rest is history. The Duma and Kremlin should reconsider their stances. The rest of Eastern Europe and other historical factors could come into play. Which isn’t only fitting the ones Russian Empire, but fits their historial perspective too. Therefore, when you start this game… out will play too.
Right now it is was an answer of the Kyiv City Council. This decree will not change things or make a direct difference. Though it shows there are historical ties, but maybe not in the manner of which fits the narratives of Putin. This instead shows that the “colony” wasn’t always that or the ones under control of Moscow. Could at one point decide its faith. Meaning that the imperial mindset of Putin is screwed, because the same argument can be used against him and his territories. Most likely not something he wants or has sought after.
That’s why the revelation of this decree only shows what sort of political games that can be played. It isn’t only the Duma or Kremlin who can have a say or show historical documents of origin stories. This is what the Kyiv City Council did by revoking the founding decree of Moscow. By doing so they “cancelled” Moscow. Though we know there is more to this and will not make a difference.
Just effectively trolling and showing the Russians that they can only do the “dance” if they have a chance. Peace.
The ones that was thinking the war in Ukraine was to liberate or free anything. I hate to tell it too you, but a man who doesn’t believe in their nationhood. Clearly doesn’t value their existence or their rights to self-rule. Alas, we know that Russian-Belorussian invasion, which has lasted over 100 days is about conquering and ruling over lost territories. That is all it is and there is no appeasement of President Vladimir Putin. No, he wants to revive and take back all the lost territories. That’s what he believes in. He believes that certain nations are colonies from the on-set and bound to be that way. As they need to be controlled and cannot make sovereign decisions. This just shows his imperialism and what he believes.
The ones believing that the Russians or the Russian President will be happy with annexation of Donbass region is delusional. The Russian President wants their empire back. He wants to revive the deceased and have control of the nations who broke free after the cold-war. That’s what he wants… he wants the Soviet Republic back and with a vengeance. He believes this territories are destined to be ruled by Russia and from Kremlin. Therefore, the West and the European partners should be aware. Ukraine is just first the target of many. He will walk further and he will not hesitate. The goal of the empire has returned…
Just read here:
“The world is changing, and changing rapidly. And in order to claim some kind of leadership – I’m not talking about global leadership, but at least in some way – of course, any country, any people, any ethnic group must ensure its sovereignty. Because there are no intermediate components, an intermediate state: either the country is sovereign, or a colony, no matter how the colonies are called. Now I will not give some examples so as not to offend anyone, but if a country or a group of countries is not able to make sovereign decisions, it is already a colony to a certain extent. And the colony of historical prospects still has no chance of surviving in such a tough geopolitical struggle. And it has always been – I just want to make it clear – not like we are watching what is happening around us and with us, we opened our mouths: oh, wow! Yes, it has always been like this, you understand, and Russia has always remained, was at the forefront of ongoing events” (Putin, 09.06.2022).
“Here Peter the Great waged the Northern War for 21 years. It would seem that he was at war with Sweden, he rejected something. He did not reject anything, he returned! And there is. All Ladoga, where St. Petersburg was founded. When he founded the new capital, none of the European countries recognized this territory as Russia, everyone recognized it as Sweden. And there, from time immemorial, along with the Finno-Ugric peoples, the Slavs lived, and this territory was under the control of the Russian state. The same is true in the western direction, this applies to Narva, his first campaigns. Why did you go there? Returned and strengthened – that’s what he did. Apparently, it also fell to our lot to return and strengthen. And if we proceed from the fact that these basic values form the basis of our existence, we will certainly succeed in solving the tasks that we face” (Putin, 09.06.2022).
The ones that believes Putin is on a mission to “save” or “liberate” now is deluded. It is a imperial mission and one of taking over the former USSR republics. The first in line is Ukraine. The others are next if he succeeds. That’s why the ones giving him way or wanting to appease him. They are just giving way to a man who will take it further and will us the powers of the Russian Federation to get there. He will annex land and ensure that he get what he wants.
He is only “taking back what was theirs to begin with” and “pretexts of colonies and countries who cannot take sovereign decisions”. That just says it all. This here story will not end in Kyiv. That’s just the beginning. President Zelensky did warn the West and the European Union. If this isn’t chilling down the spines of the ones afraid of offending Kremlin. They should know that Russia could come closer and continue this far beyond Ukraine. That’s just the mission of returning where they “belong” and make the countries into colonies, which isn’t righteous to make “sovereign decisions” anyway. Peace.
