Hello Vic Biorseth,
I am sending you now a document which I consider particularly relevant for the United States: it’s the English translation of my original Italian statement on the Russian-Ukrainian crisis.
urgent and necessary that American people would understand that the Russian
Federation is not any more the Soviet Union and President Putin is not a
Russian-Ukrainian crisis, we must clearly recognize and denounce the coup d’état
of the deep state worldwide, functional to installing the New World Order,
involving the WEF, NATO, UN, the European Union, the IMF…
points of my document, I also touched on issues concerning the Biden family
scandals and the great responsibilities of the American deep
a real risk that the Biden Administration will take advantage of this crisis, of
which Joe Biden himself is an accomplice and responsible. There is also a real
risk that it will serve to cover up his crimes, those of his son Hunter, the
China virus pseudopandemic, the Durham investigation, the 2020 electoral fraud,
as well as jeopardizing the mid-term elections.
cannot be overlooked that the pre-eminent intent of the architects of the New
World Order is the destruction of the Christian civilization and that Russia is
currently the only country in Europe capable of facing this diabolic

Thus it was that on August 24, 1939, Pius XII addressed both rulers and peoples as war was imminent. These were not words of empty pacifism, nor of complicit silence about the multiple violations of justice that were being carried out in many quarters. In that radio message, which some people still remember hearing, the appeal of the Roman Pontiff invoked “respect for each other’s rights” as a prerequisite for fruitful peace negotiations.
If we look at what is happening in Ukraine, without being misled by the gross falsifications of the mainstream media, we realize that respect for each other’s rights has been completely ignored; indeed, we have the impression that the Biden Administration, NATO and the European Union deliberately want to maintain a situation of obvious imbalance, precisely to make impossible any attempt at a peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian crisis, provoking the Russian Federation to trigger a conflict. Herein lies the seriousness of the problem. This is the trap set for both Russia and Ukraine, using both of them to enable the globalist elite to carry out its criminal plan.
It should not surprise us that pluralism and freedom of speech, so praised in countries that claim to be democratic, are daily disavowed by censorship and intolerance towards opinions not aligned with the official narrative. Manipulations of this kind have become the norm during the so-called pandemic, to the detriment of doctors, scientists and dissenting journalists, who have been discredited and ostracized for the mere fact of daring to question the effectiveness of experimental serums. Two years later, the truth about the adverse effects and the unfortunate management of the health emergency has proven them right, but the truth is stubbornly ignored because it does not correspond to what the system wanted and still wants today.
If the world media have so far been able to lie shamelessly on a matter of strict scientific relevance, spreading lies and hiding reality, we should ask ourselves why, in the present situation, they should suddenly rediscover that intellectual honesty and respect for the code of ethics widely denied with Covid.
But if this colossal fraud has been supported and disseminated by the media, it must be recognized that national and international health institutions, governments, magistrates, law enforcement agencies and the Catholic Hierarchy itself all share responsibility for the disaster – each in its own sphere by actively supporting or failing to oppose the narrative – a disaster that has affected billions of people in their health, their property, the exercise of their individual rights and even their very lives. Even in this case, it is difficult to imagine that those who have been guilty of such crimes in support of a pandemic that was intended and maliciously amplified could suddenly have a jolt of dignity and show solicitude for their citizens and their homeland when a war threatens their security and their economy.
These, of course, can be the prudent reflections of those who want to remain neutral and look with detachment and almost disinterest at what is happening around them. But if we deepen our knowledge of the facts and document them, relying on authoritative and objective sources, we discover that doubts and perplexities soon become disturbing certainties.
Even if we only want to limit our investigation to the economic aspect, we understand that news agencies, politics and public institutions themselves depend on a small number of financial groups belonging to an oligarchy that, significantly, is united not only by money and power, but by the ideological affiliation that guides its action and interference in the politics of nations and the whole world. This oligarchy shows its tentacles in the UN, NATO, the World Economic Forum, the European Union, and in “philanthropic” institutions such as George Soros’ Open Society and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
All these entities are private and answer to no one but themselves, and at the same time they have the power to influence national governments, including through their own representatives who are made to be elected or appointed to key posts. They admit it themselves, when they are received with all the honors by Heads of State and world leaders, beginning with Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, respected and feared by these leaders as the true masters of the fate of the world. Thus, those who hold power in the name of the “people” find themselves trampling on the people’s will and restricting their rights, in order to be obedient like courtiers to masters whom nobody has elected but who nevertheless dictate their political and economic agenda to the nations.
We come then to the Ukraine crisis, which is presented to us as a consequence of Vladimir Putin’s expansionist arrogance towards an independent and democratic nation over which he is trying to claim absurd rights. The “warmonger Putin” is said to be massacring the defenseless population, who have courageously arisen to defend the soil of their homeland, the sacred borders of their nation and the violated freedoms of the citizens. The European Union and the United States, “defenders of democracy,” are therefore said to be unable not to intervene by means of NATO to restore Ukraine’s autonomy, drive out the “invader” and guarantee peace. In the face of the “tyrant’s arrogance,” it is said that the peoples of the world ought to form a common front, imposing sanctions on the Russian Federation and sending soldiers, weapons and economic aid to “poor” President Zelensky, “national hero” and “defender” of his people. As proof of Putin’s “violence,” the media spread images of bombings, military searches, and destruction, attributing responsibility to Russia. And there’s still more: precisely in order to guarantee a “lasting peace,” the European Union and NATO are opening wide their arms to welcome Ukraine as members. And in order to prevent “Soviet propaganda”, Europe is now blacking out Russia Today and Sputnik, in order to ensure that information is “free and independent.”
This is the official narrative, to which everyone conforms. Being at war, dissent immediately becomes desertion, and those who dissent are guilty of treason and deserving of more or less serious sanctions, starting with public execration and ostracism, well experienced with Covid against those who are “un-vaxxed”. But the truth, if you want to know it, allows us to see things differently and to judge the facts for what they are and not for how they are presented to us. This is a true and proper unveiling, as indicated by the etymology of the Greek word ἀλήθεια. Or perhaps, with an eschatological gaze, a revelation, an ἀποκάλυψις.
First of all, it is necessary to remember the facts, which do not lie and are not susceptible to alteration. And the facts, however irritating they are to recall to those who try to censor them, tell us that since the fall of the Berlin Wall the United States has extended its sphere of political and military influence to almost all the satellite states of the former Soviet Union, even recently, annexing into NATO Poland, the Czech Republic, and Hungary (1999); Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania (2004); Albania and Croatia (2009); Montenegro (2017); and North Macedonia (2020). The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is preparing to expand to Ukraine, Georgia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia. Practically speaking, the Russian Federation is under military threat – from weapons and missile bases – just a few kilometers from its borders, while it has no military base in similar proximity to the United States.
To be considering the possible expansion of NATO into Ukraine, without thinking that it will arouse Russia’s legitimate protests, is nothing short of puzzling, especially given the fact that in 1991 NATO pledged to the Kremlin not to expand further. Not only that: at the end of 2021, Der Spiegel published drafts of a treaty with the United States and an agreement with NATO on security guarantees (here, here and here). Moscow demanded legal guarantees from its Western partners that would prevent NATO from further eastward expansion by adding Ukraine to the alliance and also from establishing military bases in post-Soviet countries. The proposals also contained a clause on the non-deployment of offensive weapons by NATO near Russia’s borders and on the withdrawal of NATO forces in Eastern Europe back to their 1997 positions.
As we can see, NATO has failed to keep its commitments to Russia, or has at least forced the situation at a very delicate moment for geopolitical balances. We should ask ourselves why the United States – or rather the American deep state which regained power after the electoral fraud that brought Joe Biden to the White House – wants to create tensions with Russia and involve its European partners in the conflict, with all the consequences we can imagine.
As General Marco Bertolini, former commander of the Joint Summit Operational Command, has lucidly observed: “The United States did not just win the Cold War but also wanted to humiliate [Russia] by taking everything that in a certain sense fell within its area of influence. [Putin] bore with the Baltic countries, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria [joining NATO]. Faced with Ukraine [joining NATO], which would have taken away any possibility of access to the Black Sea, he reacted” (here). And he adds: “There is a problem of the regime’s stability, a situation has arisen with a fairly unlikely prime minister [Zelensky], one who comes from the world of entertainment.” The general does not fail to recall, in the case of a US attack on Russia, that “the Global Hawks flying over Ukraine depart from Sigonella [Italy]; Italy is an American military base in large part. The risk is there, it is present and real” (here).
We should also ask ourselves whether, behind the destabilization of the delicate balance between the European Union and Russia, there are also economic interests, deriving from the need of EU countries to obtain American liquid gas (for which we also need the regasification plants which many nations are deprived of, and for which in any case we will have to pay much more) instead of Russian gas (which is more ecological).
The decision of Italian oil and gas company ENI to suspend investments in Gazprom’s Blue Stream pipeline (from Russia to Turkey) also entails the deprivation of an additional source of supply, since it feeds the Trans-Atlantic Pipeline (from Turkey to Italy).
It therefore does not sound like a coincidence if, in August 2021, Zelensky declared that he considered the Nord Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany as “a dangerous weapon, not only for Ukraine but for all of Europe” (here): bypassing Ukraine, it deprives Kiev of about one billion euros per year in revenue from transit tariffs. “We view this project exclusively through the prism of security and consider it a dangerous geopolitical weapon of the Kremlin”“ the Ukrainian president said, agreeing with the Biden administration. American Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland said: “If Russia invades Ukraine, Nord Stream 2 will not go forward.” And so it has happened, not without serious economic damage to German investments.
Still on the subject of American interests in Ukraine, it is worth mentioning the virological laboratories located in Ukraine which are under the control of the Pentagon and where it seems that only US specialists with diplomatic immunity are employed directly under the American Ministry of Defense.
We should also remember the complaint made by Putin regarding the collection of genomic data about the population, which can be used for bacteriological weapons with genetic selection (here, here and here). Information about the activity of laboratories in Ukraine is obviously difficult to confirm, but it is understandable that the Russian Federation considered, not without reason, that these laboratories could constitute an additional bacteriological threat to the safety of the population. The U.S. Embassy has removed all files related to the Biological Threat Reduction Program from its website (here).
Maurizio Blondet writes: “Event 201, which simulated the pandemic explosion a year before it happened, was attended (along with the usuals, Bill and Melinda) by the apparently inoffensive John Hopkins University with its blessed Center for Health Security. The humanitarian institution had for a long time a less innocent name: it was called Center for Civilian Biodefence Strategies and did not deal with the health of Americans, but rather with its opposite: the response to military attacks of bio-terrorism. It was practically a civil-military organization. When it held its first conference in February 1999 in Crystal City in Arlington [Virginia], where the Pentagon is located, it brought together 950 doctors, military personnel, federal officials and health officials to participate in a simulation exercise. The aim of the simulation is to counter an imagined “militarized” smallpox attack. It is only the first of the exercises that will blossom in Event 201 and in the Pandemic Imposture” (here).
Experiments also emerge on the Ukrainian military (here) and interventions by the American Embassy regarding the Ukrainian Prosecutor Lutsenko in 2016 so that he would not investigate “a billionaire round of funds between G. Soros and B. Obama” (here).
The current Ukrainian crisis entails secondary, but no less serious, consequences on the geopolitical balance between China and Taiwan. Russia and Ukraine are the only producers of palladium and neon, which are indispensable for the production of microchips.
Another issue that we tend not to analyze in depth is that related to Burisma, an oil and gas company operating on the Ukrainian market since 2002. Recall that “during the American presidency of Barack Obama (from 2009 to 2017) his right hand man with a “delegation” to handle international politics was Joe Biden, and it is since then that the “protection’ offered by the Democrat US leader was given to Ukrainian nationalists, a line that created the irreconcilable disagreement between Kiev and Moscow. [...] It was Joe Biden in those years who carried out the policy of bringing Ukraine closer to NATO. He wanted to take away political and economic power from Russia. [...] In recent years, Joe Biden’s name has also been associated with a scandal over Ukraine that had also shaken his candidacy. [...] It was April 2014 when Burisma Holdings, the largest energy company in Ukraine (active in both gas and oil), hired Hunter Biden as a consultant [...] with a salary of $50,000 a month. All transparent, except that during those months Joe Biden continued the American policy aimed at regaining possession by Ukraine of those areas of the Donbass that have now become Republics recognized by Russia. The Donetsk area is believed to be rich in unexplored gas fields that have been targeted by Burisma Holdings. An international policy intertwined with the economic one that made the American media turn up their noses in those years” (here).
Democrats claimed that Trump had created a media scandal to harm Biden’s campaign, but his accusations turned out to be true. Joe Biden himself, during a meeting at the Rockefeller Council for Foreign Relations, admitted to having intervened on then-President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arsenij Yatseniuk to prevent investigations into his son Hunter by Procurator General Viktor Shokin. Biden had threatened “to withhold a billion dollars loan guarantee in the United States during a December 2015 trip to Kiev,” reports the New York Post. (here). “If [the Procurator General Shokin] is not fired, you will not have the money” (here). And the Prosecutor was effectively fired, saving Hunter from further scandal, after those involving him.
Biden’s interference in Kiev politics, in exchange for favors to Burisma and corrupt oligarchs, confirms the current US President’s interest in protecting his family and image, fueling disorder in Ukraine and even a war. How can a person who uses his role to take care of his own interests and cover up the crimes of his family members govern honestly and without being subject to blackmail?
Finally, there is the issue of Ukrainian nuclear weapons. On February 19, 2022, at a conference in Munich, Zelensky announced his intention to end the Budapest Memorandum (1994), which prohibits Ukraine from developing, proliferating and using atomic weapons. Among the other clauses of the Memorandum, there is also the one that obliges Russia, the United States and the United Kingdom to refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine to influence its policy: the pressure of the IMF and the United States to grant economic aid in exchange for reforms consistent with the Great Reset represent a further violation of the agreement.
The Ukrainian Ambassador in Berlin, Andriy Melnyk, argued on Deutschlandfunk radio in 2021 that Ukraine needed to regain nuclear status if the country failed to join NATO. Ukraine’s nuclear power plants are operated, rebuilt and maintained by the state-owned enterprise NAEK Energoatom, which completely ended its relationship with Russian companies between 2018 and 2021. Its main partners are companies that can be traced back to the US government. It is easy to understand how the Russian Federation considers the possibility of Ukraine acquiring nuclear weapons as a threat and demands Kiev’s adherence to the non-proliferation pact.
Another fact. In 2013, after the government of President Viktor Yanukovych decided to suspend the association agreement between Ukraine and the European Union and to forge closer economic relations with Russia, a series of protest demonstrations known as Euromaidan began, which lasted several months and culminated in the revolution that overthrew Yanukovych and led to the installation of a new government. It was an operation sponsored by George Soros, as he candidly told CNN: “I have had a foundation in Ukraine since before it became independent of Russia; this foundation has always been in business and has played a decisive role in today’s events” (here, here and here). This change of government provoked the reaction of Yanukovych’s supporters and of a part of the Ukrainian population opposed to the pro-Western shift of Ukraine, which had not been wanted by the population but was obtained by a color revolution, of which there had been general rehearsals in previous years in Georgia, Moldova and Belarus.
Following the clashes of May 2, 2014, in which nationalist paramilitary fringes (including those of Pravyi Sektor) also intervened, there was also the massacre in Odessa. The Western press also spoke of these terrible events in a scandalized way; Amnesty International (here) and the UN denounced these crimes and documented their brutality. But no international court initiated any proceedings against those responsible, as is intended to be done today against the alleged crimes of the Russian army.
Among the many agreements not respected is also the Minsk Protocol, signed on September 5, 2014 by the Trilateral Contact Group on Ukraine, composed of representatives of Ukraine, Russia, the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic. Among the points of the agreement was also the removal of armed illegal groups, military equipment, as well as fighters and mercenaries from the territory of Ukraine under the supervision of the OSCE and the disarmament of all illegal groups. Contrary to what was agreed, neo-Nazi paramilitary groups are not only officially recognized by the government, but their members are even given official assignments.
Also in 2014, Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk declared their independence from Ukraine – in the name of self-determination of peoples recognized by the international community – and declared themselves annexed to the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian government still refuses to recognize the independence of these regions, sanctioned by popular referendum, and leaves the neo-Nazi militias and the regular military forces themselves free to rage against the population, since it considers these entities as terrorist organizations. It is true that the two referendums of November 2, 2014 constitute a stretching of the Minsk Protocol, which provided only for a decentralization of power and a form of special status for the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
As Professor Franco Cardini recently pointed out, “on February 15, 2022, Russia delivered to the United States a draft of a treaty to end this situation and defend the Russian-speaking populations. Wastepaper. This war began in 2014” (here and here). And it was a war in the intentions of those who wanted to fight the Russian minority of Donbass: “We will have a job and pensions, and they will not. We will receive bonuses for having children, and they will not. Our children will have schools and kindergartens; their children will stay in the basements. In this way we will win this war,” said President Petro Poroshenko in 2015 (here). It will not escape notice that these measures are similar to the discrimination against the so-called “un-vaxxed,” who have been deprived of work, pay and education. Eight years of bombing in Donetsk and Lugansk, with hundreds of thousands of victims, 150 dead children, and very serious cases of torture, rape, kidnapping and discrimination (here).
On February 18, 2022 the Presidents of Donetsk and Lugansk, Denis Pushilin and Leonid Pasechnik, ordered the evacuation of the civilian population of their provinces into the Russian Federation due to the ongoing clashes between the Donbass People’s Militia and the Ukrainian Armed Forces. On February 21, the State Duma (Lower House of the Russian Parliament) unanimously ratified the treaties of friendship, cooperation and mutual assistance introduced by President Putin with the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. At the same time, the Russian President ordered the sending of troops from the Russian Federation to restore peace in the Donbass region.
Here one may wonder why, in a situation of blatant violation of human rights by neo-Nazi military forces and paramilitary apparatuses (who fly flags bearing swastikas and display the effigy of Aldolf Hitler) against the Russian-speaking population of the independent republics, the international community feels obliged to consider the intervention of the Russian Federation worthy of condemnation, and indeed to blame Putin for the violence. Where is the much-vaunted right of the people to self-determination, which was held valid on August 24, 1991 for the proclamation of Ukraine’s independence and recognized by the international community? And why are we scandalized today by a Russian intervention in Ukraine, when NATO carried out the same sort of thing in Yugoslavia (1991), Kosovo (1999), Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003), and in Libya and Syria (2011), without anyone raising any objections? Not to mention that in the last ten years Israel has repeatedly hit military targets in Syria, Iran and Lebanon to prevent the creation of a hostile armed front on its northern border, and yet no nation has proposed imposing sanctions on Tel Aviv.
It is dismaying to see with what hypocrisy the European Union and the United States – Brussels and Washington – are giving their unconditional support to President Zelensky, whose government for eight years now has continued to persecute Russian-speaking Ukrainians with impunity (here), for whom it is even forbidden to speak in their own language, in a nation that includes numerous ethnic groups, of which those who speak Russian represent 17.2%. And it is scandalous that they are silent about the use of civilians as human shields by the Ukrainian army, which places anti-aircraft positions inside population centers, hospitals, schools and kindergartens precisely so that their destruction can cause deaths among the population.
The mainstream media is careful not to show images of Russian soldiers helping civilians reach safe positions (here and here) or organizing humanitarian corridors, which Ukrainian militias fire upon (here and here). Just as it is also silent about the settling of scores, massacres, violence and theft by fringes of the civilian population, to whom Zelensky has given weapons: the videos that can be seen on the internet give an idea of the climate of civil war that has been artfully fueled by the Ukrainian Government. To this we may also add the convicts released to be drafted into the Army and also the volunteers of the foreign legion: a mass of fanatics without rules and without training that will contribute to worsening the situation, making it unmanageable.
As has been pointed out by many parties, the candidacy and election of Ukrainian President Zelensky corresponds to that recent cliché, inaugurated in recent years, of a comic actor or entertainment personality being lent to politics. Do not believe that being without a suitable cursus honorum is an obstacle to the rising to the top of institutions; on the contrary: the more a person is apparently a stranger to the world of political parties, the more it is to be assumed that his success is determined by those who hold power. Zelensky’s performances in drag are perfectly consistent with the LGBTQ ideology that is considered by its European sponsors as an indispensable requirement of the “reform” agenda that every country ought to embrace, along with gender equality, abortion and the green economy. No wonder Zelensky, a member of the WEF (here), was able to benefit from the support of Schwab and his allies to come to power and ensure that the Great Reset would also be carried out in Ukraine.
The 57-part television series that Zelensky produced and starred in, demonstrates that the media planned his candidacy for President of Ukraine and his election campaign. In the fiction show The Servant of the People he played the part of a high school teacher who unexpectedly became President of the Republic and fought against the corruption of politics. It is no coincidence that the series, which was absolutely mediocre, still won the WorldFest Remi Award (USA, 2016), came among the top four finalists in the category of comedy films at the Seoul International Drama Awards (South Korea) and was awarded the Intermedia Globe Silver award in the entertainment TV series category at the World Media Film Festival in Hamburg.
The media stir obtained by Zelensky with the television series brought him over 10 million followers on Instagram and created the premise for the establishment of the homonymous Servant of the People political party, of which Ivan Bakanov, General Manager and shareholder (along with Zelensky himself and the oligarch Kolomoisky) of Kvartal 95 Studio, and the owner of the TV 1+1 television network, is also a member. Zelensky’s image is an artificial product, a media fiction, an operation of manipulation of consensus that has managed to create the political character in the Ukrainian collective imagination that in reality, and not in fiction, has conquered power.
The current Ukrainian President promoted his election campaign with a commercial that was disturbing, to say the least (here), in which, holding two machine guns, he fired on members of Parliament, pointed out as corrupt or subservient to Russia. The fight against corruption trumpeted by the Ukrainian President in the role of “servant of the people” does not correspond, however, to the picture that emerges of him from the so-called Pandora papers, in which 40 million dollars appear to have been paid to him on the eve of the elections by the Jewish billionaire Kolomoisky through offshore accounts (here, here and here). In his homeland, many accuse him of having taken power away from the pro-Russian oligarchs not to give it to the Ukrainian people, but rather to strengthen his own interest group and at the same time remove his political adversaries: “He liquidated the ministers of the old guard, first of all the powerful Minister of the Interior, [Arsen] Avakov. He rudely retired the president of the Constitutional Court who was acting as a check on his laws. He closed seven opposition TV channels. He arrested and accused of treason Viktor Medvedcuk, a pro-Russian sympathizer but above all the leader of the Platform of Opposition - For Life party, the second party of the Ukrainian Parliament after his Servant of the People party. He is also placing on trial for treason former President Poroshenko, who was suspicious of everyone except for those who got along with the Russians or their friends. The mayor of Kiev, the popular former world boxing champion Vitaly Klitchko, has already been subjected to several searches and seizures. In short, Zelensky seems to want to make a clean sweep of anyone who is not aligned with his politics” (here).
On April 21, 2019, Zelensky was elected President of Ukraine with 73.22% of the votes, and on May 20 he was sworn in. On May 22, 2019 he appointed Ivan Bakanov, Director General of Kvartal 95, as First Deputy Head of the Security Services of Ukraine and Head of the Main Directorate for the Fight against Corruption and Organized Crime of the Central Directorate of the Security Service of Ukraine. Along with Bakanov, it is worth mentioning Mykhailo Fedorov, Vice President and Minister of Digital Transformation, a member of the World Economic Forum (here). Zelensky himself has admitted to having as his inspiration the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau (here and here).
As Greece’s tragic precedent has shown, national sovereignties and the popular will expressed by parliaments are de facto erased by the decisions of international high finance, which interferes with government policies by means of blackmail and outright extortion of an economic nature. The case of Ukraine, which is one of the poorest countries in Europe, is no exception.
Shortly after Zelensky’s election, the International Monetary Fund threatened not to grant Ukraine a $5 billion loan if he did not comply with their demands. During a telephone conversation with the CEO of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, the Ukrainian President was rebuked for replacing Yakiv Smolii with a man he trusted, Kyrylo Shevchenko, who was less inclined to comply with the diktats of the IMF. Anders Åslund writes at Atlantic Council: “The problems surrounding the Zelensky government are mounting alarmingly. First of all, since March 2020, the President has led a reversal not only of the reforms pursued under him, but also those initiated by his predecessor Petro Poroshenko. Second, his government has not presented plausible proposals to resolve IMF concerns about Ukraine’s unfulfilled commitments. Third, the President appears to no longer have a ruling parliamentary majority, and he seems disinterested in forming a reformist majority (here).
It is evident that the IMF’s interventions are aimed at obtaining the Ukrainian government’s commitment to align itself with the economic, fiscal and social policies dictated by the globalist agenda, beginning with the “independence” of the Central Bank of Ukraine from the government: a euphemism with which the IMF calls on the Kiev government to renounce legitimate control over its Central Bank, which is one of the ways in which national sovereignty is exercised, along with the issuance of money and the management of public debt. On the other hand, just four months earlier Kristalina Georgieva had launched the Great Reset together with Klaus Schwab, Prince Charles and UN Secretary-General António Guterres.
What had not been possible with previous governments was brought to completion under the presidency of Zelensky, who entered the good graces of the WEF (here) along with the new Governor of the BCU, Kyrylo Shevchenko. Less than a year later, in order to prove his subjection, Shevchenko wrote an article for the WEF entitled Central banks are the key to countries’ climate goals and Ukraine is showing the way (here). Thus the Agenda 2030 is implemented, under blackmail.
There are also other Ukrainian companies that have ties to the WEF: the State Savings Bank of Ukraine (one of the largest financial institutions in Ukraine), the DTEK Group (an important private investor in the Ukrainian energy sector) and Ukr Land Farming (an agricultural leader in cultivation). Banks, energy and food are sectors perfectly in line with the Great Reset and the Fourth Industrial Revolution theorized by Klaus Schwab.
On February 4, 2021, the Ukrainian president shut down seven television stations, including ZIK, Newsone and 112 Ukraine, all guilty of not supporting his government. As Anna Del Freo writes: “A harsh condemnation of this liberticidal act has arrived, among others, also from the European Federation of Journalists and the International Federation of Journalists, who have asked for the immediate lifting of the veto. The three broadcasters will no longer be able to broadcast for five years: they employ about 1500 people, whose jobs are now at risk. There is no real reason why the three networks should be shut down, except for the arbitrariness of the Ukrainian political apex, which accuses them of threatening information security and being under “malign Russian influence.” A strong reaction also comes from NUJU, the Ukrainian journalists’ union, which speaks of a very heavy attack on freedom of speech, given that hundreds of journalists are being deprived of the opportunity to express themselves and hundreds of thousands of citizens are being deprived of the right to be informed. As we can see, what Putin is accused of was actually carried out by Zelensky and, more recently, by the European Union, with the complicity of social media platforms. “Shutting down television broadcasters is one of the most extreme forms of restriction of the freedom of the press,” said EFJ Secretary General Ricardo Gutierrez. “Nations have an obligation to ensure effective pluralism of information. It is clear that the presidential veto is not at all in line with international standards on freedom of expression” (here).
It would be interesting to know what statements were made by the European Federation of Journalists and the International Federation of Journalists after the blackout of Russia Today and Sputnik in Europe.
A country that calls for humanitarian aid from the international community to defend its population from Russian aggression should, in the collective imagination, stand out for respect for democratic principles and for legislation that prohibits activities and the spread of propaganda by extremist ideologies.
Neo-Nazi movements engaged in military and paramilitary actions operate freely in Ukraine, often with the official support of public institutions. These include the following: Stepan Bandera’s Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), a movement with a Nazi, anti-Semitic and racist matrix already active in Chechnya and which is part of the Right Sector, an association of far-right movements formed at the time of the Euromaidan coup in 2013/2014; the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA); the UNA/UNSO, paramilitary wing of the far-right political party Ukraine National Assembly; the Korchinsky Brotherhood, which offered protection in Kiev to ISIS members (here); Misanthropic Vision (MD), a neo-Nazi network spread across 19 countries that publicly incites terrorism, extremism and hatred against Christians, Muslims, Jews, Communists, homosexuals, Americans and people of color (here).
It should be remembered that the government has given explicit support to these extremist organizations both by sending the presidential guard to the funerals of their representatives, as well as by supporting the Azov Battalion, a paramilitary organization that is officially part of the Ukrainian Army under the new name of Azov Special Operations Regiment and organized into the National Guard. The Azov Regiment is financed by the Ukrainian Jewish oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, the former governor of Dnepropetrovsk, who is also thought to be the financier of the nationalist militias of Pravyi Sektor, which are considered responsible for the Odessa massacre. We are talking about the same Kolomoisky mentioned in the Pandora Papers as a sponsor of President Zelensky. The battalion has relations with several far-right organizations in Europe and the United States.
Amnesty International, after a meeting on September 8, 2014 between Secretary General Salil Shetty and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, called on the Ukrainian Government to end the abuses and war crimes committed by the volunteer battalions that operate together with the Kiev Armed Forces. The Ukrainian government has opened an official investigation into the matter, declaring that no officers or soldiers of the Azov Battalion appear to be under investigation.
In March 2015, Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov announced that the Azov Battalion would be one of the first units to be trained by US Army troops, as part of their Operation Fearless Guard training mission. US training was discontinued on June 12, 2015, when the US House of Representatives passed an amendment banning all aid (including weapons and training) to the battalion because of its neo-Nazi past. The amendment was then revoked under pressure from the CIA (here and here) and the soldiers of the Azov Battalion were trained in the United States (here and here): "We have been training these guys for eight years now. They are really good fighters. That's where the Agency's program could have a serious impact."
In 2016, an OSCE report [Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe] found that the Azov Battalion was responsible for the mass killing of prisoners, the concealment of corpses in mass graves and the systematic use of physical and psychological torture techniques. Just a few days ago the Deputy Commander of the Battalion, Vadim Troyan, was appointed Chief of Police of the Oblast Region by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov.
These are the "heroes" fighting together with the Ukrainian Army against the Russian soldiers. And these heroes of the Azov Battalion, instead of protecting their children, dare to make their own flesh into meat for slaughter, enlisting boys and girls (here and here), in violation of the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (here), concerning the involvement of minors in armed conflicts: an ad hoc legal instrument that establishes that no child under 18 is to be forcibly recruited or used directly in hostilities, either by the armed forces of a state nor by armed groups.
Inevitably, the lethal weapons provided by the EU, including Draghi's Italy, with the support of "anti-fascist" political parties, are destined to be used against these children.
The censorship being imposed against Russian broadcasters is clearly aimed at preventing the official narrative from being disproven by the facts. But while the Western media shows images of the video game War Thunder (here), frames from the movie Star Wars (here), explosions in China (here), videos of military parades (here), footage from Afghanistan (here), the Rome metro (here) or images of mobile crematoria (here) by passing them off as real and recent scenes of the war in Ukraine, reality is ignored because it has already been decided to provoke a conflict as a weapon of mass distraction that legitimizes new restrictions of freedoms in Western nations, according to the plans of the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset and the United Nations’ Agenda 2030.
It is evident that the Ukrainian people, beyond the issues that diplomacy can resolve, are victims of the same global coup d'état being carried out by supranational powers that intend, not peace between nations, but rather the establishment of the tyranny of the New World Order. Just a few days ago, Ukrainian parliamentarian Kira Rudik told Fox News, while holding a kalashnikov: “We know that we are not only fighting for Ukraine, but also for the New World Order.”
The human rights violations in Ukraine and the crimes of the neo-Nazi militias repeatedly denounced by Putin could not find a political solution because they were planned and fomented by the globalist elite, with the collaboration of the European Union, NATO and the American deep state, with an anti-Russian tone intended to make inevitable a war whose goal is to impose, primarily in Europe, the forced adoption of energy rationing (here), travel restrictions, the replacement of paper money with electronic money (here and here) and the adoption of digital ID (here and here). We are not talking about theoretical projects. These are decisions that are about to be taken concretely at the European level as well as in individual countries.
The intervention in Ukraine by NATO, the United States, and the European Union does not appear to have any legitimacy. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, and as such it should not benefit from the assistance of an entity whose purpose is the defense of its member nations. The same can be said of the European Union, which just a few days ago invited Zelensky to join it. In the meantime, Ukraine has received $2.5 billion from the United States since 2014 and another $400 million in 2021 alone (here), plus other funds for a total of $4.6 billion dollars (here). For his part, Putin has given $15 billion in loans to Ukraine to save it from bankruptcy. The European Union, for its part, has sent $17 million in funding, in addition to funding sent from various individual nations. But this assistance has benefitted the Ukrainian population only minimally.
Furthermore, by intervening in the war in Ukraine in the name of the European Union, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is violating articles 9, 11, and 12 of the Treaty of Lisbon. The competence of the European Union in this area belongs to the European Council and the High Representative. In no case does it belong to the Commission President. In what capacity does President von der Leyen presume to act as if she were the head of the European Union, usurping a role that does not belong to her? Why does no one intervene, especially considering the danger to which European citizens are being exposed due to the possibility of Russian retaliation?
Furthermore, in many cases the constitutions of the nations that are today sending support and weapons to Ukraine do not provide for the possibility of entering into a conflict. For example, article 11 of the Italian Constitution states: “Italy repudiates war as an instrument of offense for the liberty of other peoples and as a means of resolving international controversies.” Sending weapons and soldiers to a nation that is not a part of either NATO or the European Union constitutes a de facto declaration of war on the nation belligerent with it (in this case, Russia), and should therefore require the prior deliberation of declaring war, as is foreseen by article 78 of the Italian Constitution: “The Chambers [of Parliament] deliberate on the state of war and confer the necessary powers on the government.” It does not appear that to date the Chambers have been called upon to express themselves in this sense, or that the President of the Republic has intervened to demand compliance with the constitutional provision. Prime Minister Draghi, appointed by the globalist cabal for the destruction of Italy and its definitive enslavement to supranational powers, is one of the many Heads of national governments who considers the will of the citizens as an annoying obstacle to the execution of the agenda of the World Economic Forum. After two years of systematic violations of fundamental rights and of the Constitution, it is difficult to believe that he will want to place the interests of the Italian nation ahead of the interests of those who have placed him in power. On the contrary: the more disastrous are the effects of the sanctions adopted by his government, the more he can consider himself appreciated by those who have given him power. The coup perpetrated by means of the psychopandemic emergency proceeds today with new unfortunate decisions, ratified by a Parliament without a spine.
It is also a violation of article 288 of the Italian Penal Code to permit Italian citizens – and even members of the majority in the Government and political leaders – to respond to the appeal of the Ukrainian Ambassador for enrollment in the foreign legion: “Anyone in the territory of [Italy] who without government approval enlists or arms citizens to serve [in the military] in favor of a foreign nation, is to be punished with imprisonment for a period of 4 to 15 years.” No magistrate, at least for the time being, has intervened to punish those responsible for this crime.
Another violation is found in the activity of transferring children from Ukraine to Italy (and presumably also to other nations) who have been obtained via surrogate motherhood, ordered by Italian couples in violation of Law 40/2004, without any penalty being imposed on those guilty of this crime, as well as their accomplices.
It should also be remembered that the utterances of members of the Government or of political leaders with regard to the Russian Federation and its President, along with the sanctions that have been adopted against Russia and the repeated instances of arbitrary discrimination against Russian citizens, companies, artists, and sports teams for the sole fact of being Russian, are not only provocations that ought to be avoided in order to allow for a serene and peaceful settlement of the Ukraine crisis, but also place the safety of Italian citizens in very serious danger (as well as the safety of citizens of other nations who are adopting a similar stance toward Russia). The reason for such rash temerity is incomprehensible, unless there is an intentional desire to trigger reactions from the opposing party.
The Russian-Ukrainian conflict is a very dangerous trap that has been set against Ukraine, Russia, and the nations of Europe.
The Russian-Ukrainian crisis did not suddenly erupt a month ago. It has been prepared and fomented for a long time, certainly beginning with the 2014 white coup that was desired by the American deep state in an anti-Russian key. This is demonstrated, among other incontestable facts, by the training of the Azov Battalion by the CIA “to kill Russians” (here), with the CIA forcing the revocation of the amendment banning aid to the battalion made by Congress in 2015. The interventions made by Joe and Hunter Biden have gone in the same direction. Thus there is evidence of long-term premeditation, consistent with NATO’s relentless expansion towards the East. The Color Revolution of Euromaidan, as well as the establishment of a pro-NATO government composed of homines novi trained by the World Economic Forum and George Soros, was intended to create the conditions for the subordination of Ukraine to the NATO bloc, removing it from the influence of the Russian Federation. To this end, the subversive action of the Hungarian philanthropist’s NGOs, supported by media propaganda, has kept silent about the crimes of neo-Nazi paramilitary organizations, financed by the same people who sponsor Zelensky.
But if the brainwashing carried out by the mainstream media in Western nations has succeeded in conveying a completely distorted narrative of reality, the same cannot be said for Ukraine, where the population is well aware of the corruption of the political class in power as well as of its remoteness from the real problems of the Ukrainian nation. We in the West believe that the “oligarchs” are only in Russia, while the reality is that they are present above all throughout the entire galaxy of nations that formerly composed the Soviet Union, where they can accumulate wealth and power simply by placing themselves at the disposition of foreign “philanthropists” and multinational corporations. It matters little if their offshore accounts are the primary cause of the poverty of the citizens of these nations, the backwardness of the health care system, the excessive power of the bureaucracy, the almost total absence of public services, foreign control of strategic companies, and the progressive loss of sovereignty and national identity: the important thing is to “make money” and be immortalized along with political personalities, bankers, arms dealers, and those who starve the people. And then to come to the fashionable resorts of Versilia or the Amalfi Coast to flaunt their yachts and platinum cards to the waiter from Odessa or the cleaning lady from Kiev who send their paltry wages to their relatives back home. These Ukrainian billionaires wearing kippahs are those who are selling out Ukraine to the corrupted and corrupting West, trading their own well-being for the enslavement of their compatriots to the usurers who are taking over the world, using the same ruthless and immoral systems everywhere. In the past they cut the salaries of workers in Athens and Thessaloniki; today they have simply enlarged their horizons to the whole of Europe, where the population still looks on incredulously while first a health dictatorship and then an environmental dictatorship is being imposed.
On the other hand, without the pretext of a war, how would they have been able to justify the soaring price of gas and fuels, forcing the process of an “ecological” transition imposed from on high in order to control the impoverished masses? How could they have made the peoples of the Western world swallow the establishment of the tyranny of the New World Order, when the pandemic farce was unraveling and bringing to light crimes against humanity committed by BigPharma?
And while the EU and heads of government blame Russia for the impending disaster, the Western elites demonstrate that they even want to destroy agriculture, in order to apply the horrors of the Holodomor on a global scale (here). On the other hand, in many nations (including Italy) the privatization of waterways is being theorized – and water is an inalienable public good – for the advantage of multinationals and with the aim of controlling and limiting agriculture activities. The pro-NATO government of Kiev did not behave much differently: for eight years the Crimea was deprived of water from the Dnieper River in order to prevent the irrigation of the fields and starve the people. Today, in light of the sanctions being imposed on Russia and the huge reduction of grain supplies, we can understand Bill Gates’ enormous investments in agriculture (here), following the same ruthless profit-making logic already experienced with the vaccine campaign.
The Ukrainian people, regardless of what ethnic group they may belong to, are merely the latest unwitting hostages of the supranational totalitarian regime that brought the national economies of the entire world to their knees through the Covid deception, after publicly theorizing about the need to decimate the world population and transform the survivors into chronically ill patients who have irreparably compromised their immune systems.
The Ukrainian people should think hard about calling upon the intervention of NATO or the EU, provided that it is really the Ukrainian people who do it and not rather their corrupt rulers aided by racist mercenaries and neo-nazi groups in the pay of hierarchs. Because while they are promised freedom from the invader – with whom they share the common religious and cultural heritage of having once been part of Great Russia – in reality what is cynically being prepared is their definitive cancellation, their enslavement to the Great Reset that foresees everything except the protection of their identity, their sovereignty, and their borders.
Let the Ukrainian people look at what has happened to the nations of the European Union: the mirage of prosperity and security is demolished by the contemplation of the rubble left by the euro and the lobbies of Brussels. Nations invaded by illegal immigrants who feed crime and prostitution; destroyed in their social fabric by politically correct ideologies; knowingly brought to bankruptcy by reckless economic and fiscal policies; led towards poverty by the cancellation of labor and social security protections; deprived of a future by the destruction of the family and the moral and intellectual corruption of the new generations.
What were once prosperous and independent nations, diverse in their respective ethnic, linguistic, cultural, and religious specificities, have now been transformed into a shapeless mass of people without ideals, without hopes, without faith, without even the strength to react against the abuses and crimes of those who govern them. A mass of corporate customers, slaves of the system of detailed control imposed by the pandemic farce, even in the face of evidence of the fraud. A mass of persons without individual identity, marked with QR codes like animals on an intensive farm, like products of a huge shopping center. If this has been the result of the renunciation of national sovereignty for all the nations – every single one, without exception! – that have entrusted themselves to the colossal scam of the European Union, why would Ukraine be any different?
Is this what your fathers wanted, what they hoped for, what they desired, when they received Baptism along with Vladimir the Great on the banks of the Dnieper?
If there is a positive aspect that each of us can recognize in this crisis, it is that it has revealed the horror of the globalist tyranny, its ruthless cynicism, its capacity to destroy and annihilate everything it touches. It is not the Ukrainians who ought to enter the European Union or NATO, it is rather the other nations who ought to finally be jolted by pride and courage to leave them, shaking off this detestable yoke and rediscovering their own independence, sovereignty, identity, and faith. Their own souls.
To be clear: the New Order is not an inescapable destiny, and it can be subverted and denounced, if only the peoples of the world realize that they have been deceived and swindled by an oligarchy of clearly identifiable criminals, who one day will have to answer for those sanctions and those blocks of funds that today they apply with impunity to anyone who does not bend the knee before them.
For Russia too, this conflict is a trap. This is because it would fulfill the dream of the American deep state to definitively oust Russia from the European context in its commercial and cultural relations, pushing it into the arms of China, perhaps with the hope that the dictatorship in Beijing can persuade the Russians to accept the system of social credit and other aspects of the Great Reset that thus far Russia has been able to avoid, at least in part.
It is a trap, not because Russia is wrong in wanting to “denazify” Ukraine of its extremist groups and guarantee protection to Russian-speaking Ukrainians, but because it is precisely these reasons – theoretically tenable – that were created specifically to provoke it and induce it to invade Ukraine, in such a way as to provoke the NATO reaction that has been prepared for some time by the deep state and the globalist elite. The casus belli was deliberately planned by the real perpetrators of the conflict, knowing that it would obtain exactly that response from Putin. And it is up to Putin, regardless of whether he is right, not to fall into the trap, and to instead turn the tables, offering Ukraine the conditions of an honorable peace without continuing the conflict. Indeed, the more Putin believes he is right, the more he needs to demonstrate the greatness of his nation and his love for his people by not giving into provocations.
Permit me to repeat the words of the Prophet Isaiah: Loose the bands of wickedness, undo the bundles that oppress, let those who are broken go free, and break asunder every burden. Share your bread with the hungry, welcome into your house the afflicted and homeless; when you see a naked man, clothe him, and do not turn your back on your own flesh. Then your light will arise like the dawn, and your wound will quickly be healed. Your justice shall go before you, the glory of the Lord will closely follow you. (Is 58:6-8).
The world crisis with which the dissolution of traditional society is being prepared has also involved the Catholic Church, whose Hierarchy is held hostage by apostates who are courtiers of power. There was a time in which Popes and Prelates confronted Kings without concern for human respect, because they knew they spoke with the voice of Jesus Christ, the King of kings. The Rome of the Caesars and Popes is now deserted and silent, just as for centuries the Second Rome of Constantinople has also been silent. Perhaps Providence has ordained that Moscow, the Third Rome, will today in the sight of the world take on the role of κατέχον (2 Thess 2:6-7), of eschatological obstacle to the Antichrist. If the errors of communism were spread by the Soviet Union, even to the point of imposing themselves within the Church, Russia and Ukraine can today have an epochal role in the restoration of Christian Civilization, contributing to bringing the world a period of peace from which the Church too will rise again purified and renewed in her Ministers.
The United States of America and the European nations should not marginalize Russia, but rather form an alliance with her, not only for the restoration of trade for the prosperity of all, but in view of the reconstruction of a Christian Civilization, which alone can save the world from the globalist techno-health transhuman monster.
There is great concern that the destinies of the peoples of the world is in the hands of an elite that is not accountable to anyone for its decisions, that does not recognize any authority above itself, and that in order to pursue its own interests does not hesitate to jeopardize security, the economy, and the very lives of billions of people, with the complicity of politicians in their service and the mainstream media. The falsification of facts, the grotesque adulterations of reality, and the partisanship with which the news is spread stand alongside the censorship of dissenting voices and leads to forms of ethnic persecution against Russian citizens, who are discriminated against precisely in the countries that say they are democratic and respectful of fundamental rights.
I earnestly hope that my appeal for the establishment of an Anti-Globalist Alliance that unites the peoples of the world in opposition against the tyranny of the New World Order will be accepted by those who have at heart the common good, peace between nations, concord among all peoples, freedom for all citizens and the future of the new generations. And even before that, may my words – along with those of many intellectually honest people – contribute to bringing to light the complicity and corruption of those who use lies and fraud to justify their crimes, even in these moments of great apprehension about the war in Ukraine.
May Holy Lent lead all Christians to ask pardon from the Divine Majesty for the sins of those who trample His Holy Law. May penance and fasting move the Lord God to mercy, while we repeat the words of the Prophet Joel: Parce, Domine: parce populo tuo; et ne des hæreditatem tuam in opprobrium, ut dominentur eis nationes. Forgive your people, Lord, and do not expose your inheritance to reproach, to the derision of the nations (Jl 2:17).

From where in the hell does Vigano get the "NATO provoked Russia"?! From Prigozhin's Olgino troll factory handbook?! NATO expands by way of countries VOLUNTARILY joining it - and joining it due to very, very real threat of Russian aggression. The whole situation has very little to do with "global elite" pulling the strings - they took advantage of it, like they always do, but if Vigano thinks that this is not due to Russian imperialism, he obviously missed his required education on the history of Russia. I could provide him if he so wants. Why the Balts nearly tripped over themselves as they ran over to NATO? Why did Turkey? Or Poland? Or even Ukraine? All too often, Westerners don't know a damn about the Soviet-Russian imperial ambitions and wars against Afghanistan or Chechnya. Djohar Dudaev told the lot of you during Chechnya that Russian imperialism is a product of Russian national character - it only stops when someone kicks Russia in the teeth, like Afghanistan or Chechnya did. In 90's, Dudaev already knew that Russia will go for Crimea. Or Georgia - the one in Caucasus, not in America. Did NATO "threaten" Russia in any way or form then? NO! NATO is not a threat to Russia - does NATO prevent Putin and his oligarchs from extracting trillions of petrodollars out of Russian soil and people? What do "rockets" have anything to do with it? Oh, wait, the entire Russian elite used to basically reside in London as the UK swims in Russian corrupt money to this very day. How could the West be a threat to Russia if all oligarchs and rulers of Russia keep their children and property there? But, alas, Russian imperialism strikes again and mere trillions of petrodollars can't replace the "glory of the Soviet Union" in the mind of the ex-Stasi/KGB product, wannabe-Khan Vladimir Putin - like with the global elite, it's not about money. It's about power - and to Russian chauvinists like Putin, world conquest by force is power. You can't buy the world with just money - if you want to be Khan, you need to conquer it. "Russian soldiers helping people" - those are very, very few. Perhaps on the level of Palestinians who want Israel to coexist peacefully or Communists who don't want to abolish all private property. Vigano should visit Ukraine - maybe Sumy. Or Kharkiv. Or Mariupol. Let's see him getting some "Russian help" in there - how about a goddamn tank shell in a home or a church? We recorded these orcs (no exaggeration - you can compare Tolkien's uruk hai to Russians and the orcs would probably come off as more civilized) shooting at churches (!) and ambulances! Last I've checked, that what Islamists or hardcore Communists do and not a civilized Western army. Take it from someone who actually lives here - Russians are no different from a marauding horde! I say this with no exaggeration - this is fact. We have tons of videos, tons of refugee testimonies and tons of conversation recordings from Instagram, Telegram/whatever where Russian soldiers casually - casually! - discuss the "disposal" of civilians who've accidentally seen the Russian army advance and how "cool" it would be to steal a TV or a generator from a bombed-out Ukrainian store (better yet - I work at Nova Poshta and I've seen the Russian hordes marauding our warehouse in Kharkiv) for their dacha/out-of-town retreat. "Should not marginalize Russia" - Russia is no different from Iran. Or China. Maybe we should "ally" with them too? Maybe give them MORE weapons and power for the oligarchs? I wonder if Vigano would sing the same tune if the Russian horde marched on the precious Italy and raped all the Italian women like they did to the German ones in WW2? Or bombed Rome and Vatican into nothingness like they did with Grozny, Chechnya? Or how about "teaching" the Italians and Vatican that Mussolini's blackshirts were goddamn choir boys compared to Stalin's "liberators" - maybe starving a quarter of Italy to death and abandoning what's left to alcoholism would do? Would he like to "not marginalize" Russia then? Vigano's miseducation on the topic is right up there with Lenin's quote on stupid capitalists selling the rope with which communists will hang them later - Russia wages war with rockets that are guided by Taiwanese microchips, their steel is provided by Western companies, their oligarchs keep their property in the West. So let the West look - that's Western capitalism at work in Russia. There is no such thing as peace against Russia - only periods where Russia either builds up it's forces and waits for an opportunity. Where do you think that good-for-nothing Russia got these weapons? They buy parts for them - and manufacture and ship them, too - from the West and from China! The West already tried "not marginalizing" Russia - and we Ukrainians, Georgians and the rest paid a lot of lives for such bleeding-heart liberal, useful idiot sentiments. "Marginalizing Russia" - it's about damn time the West started fixing the mess it has allowed to fester all these years ago when it naively thought that Reagan's "evil empire" was somehow no longer evil just because it lost 15 satrapies. Vigano thinks that this war is propaganda? Shame he doesn't know Russian - he should learn the language. See what kind of phrases Olgino trolls - and most ordinary Russians, who are irreparably brainwashed by Kremlin's propaganda - use against Ukraine. They call us "Nazis" and openly call for our destruction - there are even phrases like "why would we need the world if Russia's not in it?" floating around Kremlin's TV propaganda programs. Putin put his nuclear hypersonic missiles on an alert and Vigano wishes to "not marginalize Russia"?

The Soviet Union and Socialist Germany were meant to be global projects. Together they symbolize a Tower building project funded by an unseen hand: Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Carnegies, and others.
We now see another Tower building project underway. This time it is a project outwardly run by Transhumanists such as Klaus Schwab and others of that unsavory ilk. But as before, an unseen hand stands behind Schwab, et al.
The unseen hand is still the American-W. European power consortium whose combined estimated wealth is in the trillions. Today's power consortium consists of American-W. European dynastic families.
One of these families believes it is the genetic descendants of ancient Egypt. This family symbolizes the Cult of the Seeing Eye.
One other family believes it is genetically descended from the mystical beings who came across the Flood (you know, the Flood that never happened, sarcasm). This we might reasonably call the Cult of Babylon/ Nephilim.

Pidlubniak and Linda:
No one is purely anything. Most certainly no one is perfect; even the very best of the saints (the Blessed Virgin excepted) were not saintly for the whole of their lives.
It may be that Putin is partially or mostly Communist. It may be that he is also mostly or partially Imperialist. And it may be that he is mostly or partially a narcissistic tyrant. And it just may be - maybe - that some little part of him is a Russian Orthodox believer in God.
At the same time, the Viganò document points out the fact that President Zelensky is not purely anything either; certainly not purely patriotic, heroic and without political guile. In the light of Truth he only comes out better when compared to Putin, and Ukraine only comes out better when compared to Russia. But that's when the comparison is made with my Catholic-American background and my admittedly misinformed and perhaps purposely malformed knowledge of what's really going on over there.
The free world is now looking closely at the new axis of evil consisting of China, Russia and Iran. Perhaps that's where the monopolistic owners and operators of all worldly information want us to look. Then, we are less likely to see another axis of evil, which is manipulating us through the manipulation of information. And that other axis of evil is:
If I am right about this axis of evil, then the current sitting American government is more of a threat to American and world freedom than Xi Jining, Vladimir Putin or Ali Khameini.
And the whole reason is their total control of all information.
That's why nothing is ever what it appears to be.
Whatever else Putin is, he is the President of a great nation with a huge population. Whatever else he is, that comes first, and he - and his whole nation - are now being put in a box, and chocked, and cut off, and made desperate.
At least when Trump was in office, they were talking, not shooting. It is always better to talk. Trump's Art Of The Deal always tries to make deals that both parties can feel that they got something out of. It's a much better way to do business, even when dealing with someone with evil intentions. Personally, I would rather see the situation move more toward talking rather than shooting.
Viganò is right about this, for sure: Putin has an opportunity to turn this around for the better of all concerned,
Peace is always possible, and always preferable.
None of this would have happened if the 2020 election wasn't stolen.
All Russian people are not evil, Pidlubniak. That cannot be. Evil populations are made, not born. The fish rots from the head. Those Russian citizens who are demonstrably evil have been made that way by their leadership, who control their education and their information.
Because of our evil government, America, too, has a growing evil population. It can happen anywhere.
But so long as any man draws breath in this life, reconciliation with God and neighbor is possible.

I never said Zelensky is fluffy. He's an oligarch-sponsored candidate and he has a lot of corruption-related skeletons. But. Neither he nor the moron vote Ukrainians who chose him are Nazis. That's what I was saying. The main Russian "charge" against Ukraine is a horrific slander. "Peace is always possible" - I already told you that Russian chauvinism (ingrained into their national mentality) is to nations what Islam is to religions and Communism is to all other ideologies. "Peace" and "economic prosperity" are only there to build up strength for a renewed attempt at conquest. Ukraine is simply, in historical terms, a repeat of what happened in Afghanistan, in Chechnya, in Moldova and in Georgia. Almost all educated Russians are not living in Russia - they leave when the see the hateful national Russian mentality (helped with state propaganda) on full display. You think that Russian population and it's mentality are not complicit? How naive. Boris Nemtsov and Alexei Navalny - famous liberal, educated opposition leaders who, respectively, got shot (Nemtsov) and poisoned with Novichok (Navalny) - have been telling about the warlike, kleptocratic Russian regime for decades! And what do you think they got for their efforts? Before they were disposed of, Nemtsov and Navalny were called "traitors" and almost all Russians preferred to vote for "patriotic" Putin instead! You can find a very recent video of a "true believer" smashing an iPad in Moscow and loudly proclaiming his loyalty to the Great Leader Putin despite his child playing games on that iPad days before. "Evil populations are made" - and nowhere it is more apparent than in Russia. As recently as the 90's, it was unthinkable to praise Stalin as a hero. But state propaganda dealt with that real quick in about 15 years - now, you can see almost all Russians regarding Stalin as a hero (despite him being a Russian equivalent of Al Capone and then, killing more Russians then Hitler) and WW2 as the "Great Patriotic War" and celebrating it (when Communists hated nations and the NKVD barrier troops had to "motivate" the starving and underequipped serfs to, proverbially, rust the German blade by spilling enough blood on it). Ukrainians have tons of relatives in Russia - just imagine getting a letter from a "relative" that calls you a Nazi and proclaims that the "relative" would very much like to kill you themselves. While my family doesn't have relatives in Russia, families of my friends do - and some of them got emails of this sort. "Fish rots from the head" - Westerners who think that overthrowing Putin (like with overthrowing Stalin or Gorbachev) will change Russian national character into something more benign and fix centuries of corrupt, warmongering imperialism taught from the kindergarten are deluding themselves. Putin is a cut-and-paste PRODUCT of Russian imperialism on that front. Cut off one chauvinist - few more will immediately take his place. And I wouldn't call him a Christian of any sort either, given what kind of sexual perversions (for example, Shoigu - the Russian minister of defence - has a harem of prostitutes/mistresses whom he gives cushy jobs in the government - and he's far from alone in this kind of endeavor) and other things (like assassination of opposition leaders) are going on behind Kremlin's doors. Do you know what is the most trustworthy (for a Westerner and a normal human being) brand of media in Russia? The "foreign agent" label - it is given to everything that does not tiptoe to Russian propaganda points, like all Western media and, of course, Russian opposition channels like Dozhd/Rain. I'd strongely suggest for Vigano to read media with those labels in Russia rather than thinking that Prigozhin's Olgino troll factory talking points are real just because they contradict Western media. Or, if that can't be done, read some Ukrainian media on the subject.

At this point, it appears that only Putin can become the man of the hour and try to end this thing honorably. If you are right, and he is that irreversibly evil, then Ukraine is doomed, all of Europe is in for another world war, and the current criminal American government will do everything in its power to bring that war to American shores and then lose it. Since Biden took office every single thing they have done has harmed America; not one single thing they have done was good for America, any American allies or world peace.
I think this proves that state control of education and state control of information marks the eventual doom of free states. In Russia it is state controlled, in America it is controlled by state proxies, but it is all the same. It is politically controlled.
Education and information are private sector functions. There should be no such thing as government controlled education or government controlled information.
They are prohibited by our Constitution, but no one reads it any more.

Putin and "honorable" aren't compatible, Vic. As much as I'd like to hope for a peaceful resolution to this and Russia somehow becoming reasonable, we live in a real world and so, hopeful fairy tales like that are the stuff of politicians' campaign promises and not real politics. Putin has crossed all the lines - he HAS to somehow keep that war going or win at least something out of it. He can't go back. If he loses - and he will, given that the Russian army is a Potemkin's village that gets kicked in the nuts by Ukrainians with gusto - he knows that he's gonna get violently removed (transition of power is never peaceful in Russia). He's not a democratically-elected politician - he can't kick the problem down to another administration. The weakness of dictatorships is that a dictator can't pull any plausible deniability since everyone knows who's always really calling the shots. Ukraine isn't doomed, Vic. We aren't some Afghani quitters that pissed themselves before the Taliban as soon as the big bad Americans left. We aren't running to America every time our nose gets busted. We've been fighting for centuries and this time's no different. And it's cute that Vigano complains about Zelensky stating that Ukraine needs the nukes back if NATO and EU aren't going to be including it - and they won't. Because it would be too goddamn easy and, for Ukraine, it would be a fairy-tale ending - which is too good to be true. We gave up nukes for some undefined promises of us being defended - to absolutely no one's surprise, when Russia invaded Donbass and annexed Crimea, the EU farted around for a little bit with inconsequential sanctions while Obama "normalized" everything. "Обіцянка-цяцянка, а дурневі радість." - translated as "A promise is a joy of a fool", this Ukrainian proverb is an apt description of EU's carrot policy towards Ukraine, where they dangle the EU carrot but never accept us due to "corruption". Now this hypocrisy is what's bugging me. Sure, we have a lot of corruption - but, on that front, UK and Italy (which swim in post-Soviet corrupt money and properties) don't have any room to talk. And when we talk about wider NATO, let's not forget Biden outright bragging about shutting Ukrainian investigation into Burisma by threatening to withhold critical foreign aid - or Turkey freely being a member of NATO despite, you know, having human rights violations that are worse than anything post-Soviet except maybe Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus and Russia. We don't even need the EU - but membership in NATO is critical if we want to finally contain the Russian threat. The sentiment of the people of Ukraine is that no matter how many stupid hoops we jump through, no matter how many of our people die so that Europe won't have to dirty it's hands to fix it's messes (in 2013, our people died at the hands of Berkut police in order to overthrow the corrupt, pro-Russian and criminal government of Yanukovich - I know because my friends were there to see it all with their own eyes) - none of it ever amounts to anything because European liberals want Ukraine to build a Rome in a day out of nothing. What Vigano fails to understand on the topic of Maidan is that it wasn't an artificial "color revolution"/coup anymore than the "orange revolution" was. We Ukrainians, horrors of horrors, OVERTHROW corrupt governments - a predecessor to that was that it was Ukraine (represented by Leonid Kravchuk - our first president), Belarus (represented by Stanislav Shashkevych - who was later replaced by pro-Russian puppet Lukashenko) and Russia (represented by Boris Yeltsin and his liberal faction - who were removed from power and replaced by Kooperativ Ozero/Putin's faction) who tore apart the Soviet Union by way of Belovezh Accords. And George Soros could only take slight advantage of existing pro-Western sentiment, not start it or direct it - the moment his "foundation" tried to organize the pride parades in Kyiv, the people themselves kicked the asses of the pederasts and so the Sorosian useful idiots mostly kept their heads quiet ever since. Lastly, Vigano should keep his mouth shut on the topic of NATO, since it's clear he hadn't studied it at all. NATO isn't an occupier of any sort (well, except Billie Clinton's bombing of Serbia on propagandized reasons in order to create a fount of instability in the heart of Europe) - USA, for one, always leaves the moment the countries the US army is stationed at tell it to. In this context, "sovereignty, faith and jolted pride" is translated as "let them be unallied - it's easier to devour and conquer unalighned and "neutral" countries - especially when they don't have nukes". And that goes for Vigano's utter unfamiliarity with Ukrainian politics in particular. The whole brouhaha with the IMF reforms is not really anything sinister - it's a tired call of our European partners to our government. To, for once, actually return the loans our government takes from them - or at least spend the loans on fighting problems in Ukraine instead of skimming them for more Italian or French villas for high officials. No different then any bank in this regard. Reforms instigated by Poroshenko were used to fight corruption in Ukraine - instead, Zelensky's rolling it all back to Yanukovich's time. Or he was, at any rate, until Russia invaded and the world had to exclaim "never mind all that - here, have weapons and vastly more powerful sanctions because, why, the horde could march on Finland or Sweden next, as indicated by Russian threats to those countries". I could refute most of Vigano's letter here with ease, given that he inadvertedly echoes Prigozhin's script step-by-step - but I'm not sure how I'd reach Vigano himself. And if I can't reach him... Could you send it to him? Please understand - if, somehow, fate will want to crap on Ukraine even more and Vigano's letter reaches some wider audience and turns the world against Ukraine at the worst possible time, we could very well be stabbed in the back and returned to the "brotherly embrace" of Russia - and thousands of our defenders of freedom would die in vain, followed by thousands more in the Russian openly-declared "denazification".

For another perspective, here's a lecture (60 minutes) by John Mearsheimer in 2015-16 that confirms the US/NATO’s role in Ukraine that Archbishop Vigano brings up. Mr. Mearsheimer worked in government for several decades and was ambassador to Ukraine in the 1990s. He has published a couple books on this general topic of ‘Nation-building’ ideology prevalent in the West.

There's a lot to unpack regarding Mearsheimer's lecture. Does this typical bunch of Ostankino-inspired lies has no end?! Did Mearsheimer really think that Orange Revolution was "fostered by Americans"? I actually lived through that revolution. I remember Medvedchuk's topic lists, the murder of Gongadze... There was a lot of reasons for giving the boot to Kuchma's administration and not electing Yanukovich. We had a government that covered up it's messes by killing high-placed people, for God's sake... And none of these reasons ever had anything to do with America. I also lived through the Euromaidan - it was not a coup, for one thing, and "Neo-Nazis" exist only in the minds of fooled Russian and Western useful idiots. I am kind of tired of screaming myself hoarse regarding these kinds of untruths that are peddled go the West by Russia TV. Mearsheimer (who likely doesn't know either the Russian or Ukrainian language or history) is not an authority on Ukraine, no matter how many decades of work he got in American government. If he gets wrong two of the most important events in recent Ukrainian history - the Orange Revolution and the Euromaidan - then he cannot have a proper perspective on Ukraine by definition. This is not a struggle between some recent Western democracy - struggle between Ukraine and Russia has historic origins in times back when West had serfdom. Russian imperialism - so conspicuously never mentioned by Westerners like Mearsheimer - is the reason for the war in Ukraine. You'd think a guy who works in diplomacy and relations would know about this cornerstone of Russian national mentality - it existed longer than America, at any rate. But this is the fault of modern Western thinking - these "analysts" don't pay attention to history. That's why they stumble over Islam, for example - not understanding that no matter how much money and prosperity Westerners bring to Islamic lands, a proper jihadi will still want to destroy the West because it's full of infidels and the Koran teaches the jihadi so. And why they can't figure out Russia - why a third-world country with the greatest amount of natural resources literally does not make anything that isn't an instrument of death and needs to invade neighbors constantly. Why a people with access to unlimited petrodollars and the greatest library of all (Internet) still live like serfs, yet puff their chests in support of a warmongering oligarchic regime that abuses and steals from them. I challenge any Westerner to find any really good or unique Russian product that isn't a weapon or something else used for war. And, to cap it all off... I'm going to say a few last words for every Westerner that visits here. Study history, as it reveals patterns. You don't need high-falutin political analysis (which is wrong, anyway, as it comes from people who are obsessed with their little square Western political theories and who don't know the histories and national mentalities of the nations involved - people with historic approach will understand why a Moscovian true believer smashes his iPad while screaming that he loves Putin - yet the likes of Meirsheimer are doomed to not understanding this due to their limited approach) if you have a grounding in history. Second - culture and ideology ALWAYS trumps whatever economic or local political concerns are going on. Always. That was even the lesson learned by the Marxists when they switched from Orthodox to Cultural Marxism. Today, Ukraine is simply a repeat of what's been going on before in Afghanistan, Chechnya and Georgia. There's nothing new under the sun. Mearsheimer did not make any "predictions" with his approach - but Djohar Dudaiev, a Chechen freedom fighter, said that Russia will be fighting Ukraine for Crimea all the way in the 90's. Because Dudaiev knew what he was dealing with - and he predicted Russia to a fault.

The worst enemies of Ukraine, believe it or not, are Western string-pullers who are Godless, loveless nihilists who fool and use people as all psychopaths do. They (or their Gadarene Swine) are in charge of the current American government and the current Church government.
Abp. Vigano possesses great spiritual discernment through which he sees what others do not, and this discernment drives his need to unite a global force of orthodox faithful with less orthodox faithful and with not necessarily faithful but good-willed people against this global Leviathan, that is still recognized by so few.
Vigano is an honest, trustworthy, faithful spiritual leader blessed with a towering intellect and strong spiritual discernment. It is difficult for me to believe he is uninformed regarding Putin and Kirill and their unsavory pasts. But being a man of charity he hopes they might possibly become allies against the Leviathin forces currently pulling their strings.
Perhaps this is naive, perhaps not, but the hope is not impossible.
The "genius" of Vigano, if it is genius, is a more spiritual genius akin to the genius of Trump, which is a more practical and worldly genius. They both drive toward the same return to greatness or goodness from different starting points.
And they are both demonized and attacked for it by the Leviathan and the string-pullers. These enemies of God and man do not care about anything other than the New World Order they are busily installing.
They don't really give a damn about either Ukraine or Russia, except as they can use them for their evil purposes. They are the same liars who promote climate terrorism, covid terrorism, critical-race-theory, LGBTQ+ "Rights", the end of all borders, and who create social divisions and set them against each other, to cause "wars and rumors of wars" (Matt 24:6-7).

If Archbishop Vigano was indeed informed, he would not be putting his trust into Putin and Kirill. These are tried-and-true, intended products of the very system which spawned the main ideology and strategy of the godless New World Order which Archbishop Vigano opposes. A root cannot oppose the tree. I do not say this to disparage Archbishop Vigano in any way - I say this as a statement of fact. Opposing Russian warmongering imperialism - a lot of which is a lingering product of the Soviet Union - is a must for all free and civilized people everywhere. If Archbishop Vigano, like Trump, supposedly fights for a "land of the free"/founding principles of the US, then he should not support Russia - so very aptly termed "the prison of the peoples". There is no God in Russia. He was chased - nay, purged - out of there a long time ago by Lenin's and Stalin's repression. Currently, the pedophiliac and other kinds of sexual escapades of the higher-ups in Kremlin are well-known amongst even the people of Russia (don't look now, but Kirill's closest associates are renowned for their, erm... Liking of high-class call girls).

I wouldn't call it trust, but something more akin to a reasoned approach to reform or conversion of evil; a way out of hell, if they would take it. A turning. Maybe you're right and maybe there's too much evil there; but maybe not. Man proposes, but God disposes.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.
