The Force Awakens

by Stephen Lendman

Last week, Moscow's Defense Ministry appointed Hero of Russia/General Sergey Surovikin as commander-in-chief of the nation's military operations in Ukraine and Donbass.

Since launching its SMO in February, Surovikin's appointment represents the first time that it's been headed by a single commander — notably one nicknamed General Armageddon because of his battlefield accomplishments.

The move most likely signals a shift by Russian policymakers from an SMO to war footing against the scourge of Nazi-infested Ukraine.

According to analyst Andrei Raevsky, more terrorist attacks on Russia will follow — planned and orchestrated by hegemon USA, carried out by proxy Ukrainian Nazis.

With General Armageddon in charge of Russia's military operations, hardline responses most likely will following.

Monday strikes by its forces on targets in multiple Ukrainian cities likely signal more of the same to follow as necessary against a monster vital to slay.

In response, notorious imperial tool/so-called EU foreign policy chief, Josep Borell, defied reality by saying he's "deeply shocked  by Russia's attacks on civilians (sic) in Kiev and other cities in Ukraine (sic)."

"Such acts have no place in 21st century (sic)."

"I condemn them in the strongest possible terms (sic)." 

"We stand with Ukrain(ian Nazis) (sic)." 

"Additional military support from EU (regimes are) on its way (sic)."

And this from so-called European parliament president, Roberta Metsola:

Russia "targets indiscriminately (sic)."

"Rain(ing) terror and death down on children" is longstanding US-dominated NATO policy and how Ukrainian Nazis operate — clearly not Russia.

Metsola sounded as delusional as puppet Zelensky, adding:

"Ukrain(ian) (Nazis) will win (sic). Europe will not look away (sic)."

And this from so-called Biden regime envoy to Nazified Ukraine, Bridget Brink:

"Russia escalate(d) its barrage of attacks on Ukrainian civilians (sic)."

According to a Scholz regime spokesperson, Germany and other G7 regimes will discuss Russia's Monday retaliatory strikes on Tuesday.

Separately, so-called foreign secretary, Cleverly, of Britain's overwhelmingly unpopular Truss regime defied reality by calling Russia's justifiable display of strength "a demonstration of weakness (sic)."

And this from a Macron spokesman, promising more French military aid to Ukrainian Nazis than already.

Canada's Trudeau regime foreign minister, Joly, defied reality by falsely calling Russia's retaliatory strikes on Ukrainian cities "war crimes (sic)," adding:

"Canada stands with…Ukrain(ian Nazis)" like other Western regimes.

During a televised Russian Security Council meeting on Monday, Vladimir Putin said the following:

"A number of terrorist attacks and attempts at similar crimes have been committed against the electrical power facilities and gas transportation infrastructure of our country, including attempts to detonate a section of the TurkStream gas transmission system."

"All of this has been proven by objective data, including the testimony of detained perpetrators of these terrorist attacks."

Hostile actions by Kiev "put itself on a par with the most odious terrorist groups." 

"It was not possible to leave (Ukrainian attacks) unanswered."

"If they continue, the response from Russia will be severe and correspond to the level of threat," adding:

"This morning as propos(ed) by the Ministry of Defense and Russian General Staff, strikes were carried out using high-precision, long-range air, sea and land-based weapons against energy, military command and communications facilities of Ukraine."

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, General Igor Konashenkov, said the following:

"The goal of the strikes was achieved."

"All designated targets were hit" in Kiev, Kharkov, Dnepr, Odessa, Krivoy Rog, Zhitomir, Ternopol, Khmelnitsky, Konotop, Lvov, and other cities.

As directed by their US master, there's no ambiguity about state-sponsored terrorism by Ukrainian Nazis.

Russia's retaliatory strikes on strategic targets in multiple cities were long overdue.

Their message is clear.

More of the same will be forthcoming as necessary.

A state of war likely exists.

The gloves are off.

Smashing the made-in-the-USA monster most likely will follow.

More on the latest developments as additional information becomes available.
