    Bucha False Flag

    https://www.bitchute.com/video/6ZHPL...ofTArv7hs1G9Ko

    Here is some contrary evidence that slipped through the USA net. American censorship means their victims are always playing catch up in these PR wars.

    Here is an important question: how do you confront a perpetual liar? We have, for example, some dudes here who lies about their sexual conquests. One guy in the Thai board was bonking armies of upscale women a day. Another guy sent me a message showing how the first guy was a fraud. Although lots of others called out the first guy, my question is more general / generic: how are perpetual liars called out?

    Although the USA had plenty on the Nazis in Ukraine, they now deny there are any. President Trump was banned from social media partly, at least, for questioning Hunter Biden. Yet we now know Hunter Biden has very serious criminal questions to answer over Ukraine. The circus continues.

    Fascinating deep-dive articles about Putin's health status

    https://www.proekt.media/en/investig.../putin-health/

    https://futurism.com/neoscope/putin-cancer-specialist

    The first article is a longer and more detailed piece of investigative journalism. It includes an analysis of hotel records that show which doctors have been closely associated with Putin over the years. For example, by comparing the doctors' travel records with Putin's known stays in Sochi (or other locations), and with known periods in which Putin disappeared from public view, it's possible to show the connections. Then, by looking at the specialized expertise of each doctor, it's possible to develop a theory (or theories) about health problems Putin may be experiencing, or at least is concerned about.

    The second article is a shorter summary of the same information. For anyone interested, I recommend reading both, but especially the first.

    Of course, since definitive information about Putin's health is a closely guarded secret, it's impossible to know for sure, but these articles provide some fascinating insights. And they're relevant because, if Putin is dealing with serious (terminal?) health issues, it will almost certainly affect his decision making process. If he thinks his time is short, and sees victory in Ukraine as essential to his legacy, then he will act accordingly even if those actions don't seem rational to others. By the same token, if other Russian elites believe that Putin is seriously ill, that may affect their own attitudes (support vs non-support vs self-preservation) toward him.

    I'm pretty sure no one in Ukraine, or who cares about Ukraine, gives a rat's ass.

    I found this interesting commentary in regards to Biden saying Putin "cannot remain in power."

    Per Holman Jenkins in the Wall Street Journal: "My one disappointment was that China didn't pipe up to say, "No, Mr. Putin must remain in power," to emphasize just how thoroughly the Russian leader, through his own blunders, has reduced himself to a rag doll being fought over by nations that actually matter."

    More info about the massive Russian brain-drain

    https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/new...ment-shortage/

    https://www.securitylab.ru/news/530708.php (article is in Russian but will automatically translate if using Chrome browser).

    https://www.datacenterdynamics.com/e...ve-in-a-month/

    Notice that the reported numbers (170,000 estimated) come from Russian sources. And, even though those sources are trying to put a positive spin on things (it's only temporary), you can read between the lines and see the desperation.

    Also, anyone who understands tech people knows that they generally have a pretty extensive network of likeminded friends and colleagues. That means, for each person who leaves and is able to establish themselves outside Russia, that will provide an example to others in their network and may incentivize them to make a similar move. And tech people are smart enough to see through the empty (or temporary) government promises being rolled out to persuade them to stay.

    In most of the articles I've read about the effects of sanctions, not enough attention (IMO) is being paid to this phenomenon. And, the longer the war continues, the more brain-drain will likely occur and the more long-lasting the damage to the Russian economy is likely to be.

    No one who has a clue about history declares a winner before hostilities end, and winning any particular battle does not equate to winning the war. Anyone looking at the early years of WW-II would have thought an Axis victory to be inevitable. It didn't turn out that way, did it? BTW, here's an hours-old article citing Putin's demand for Mariupol to surrender, which makes it clear it hasn't yet happened. In the future you might want to double-check with your master before making premature pronouncements.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-60926470

    It's also quite revealing that you conveniently ignore Putin's utter failure to take Kyiv. In fact, the many military failures have been obvious to all (except Putin butt-kissers). Not only failures, but also desertions and refusals to fight, have shown the Russian military "machine" to be poorly engineered, poorly maintained, and vastly overrated.

    The Russian / Chinese alliance is strong

    Oh, and what do you think will happen if pressure is brought to bear such that China is forced to choose between Russia and Western markets? Buh-bye Russia, do svidaniya Putin!

    The American tank is running on empty and soon the bill falls due.
    It might be one of your wet-dreams that the American tank is running on empty but, as usual, you haven't provided a shred of evidence to support your fantasy. As a matter of fact, America has a multitude of tanks, all fully fueled, and is sending more and more of them to Europe.

    https://www.militaryspot.com/news/co...ives-in-europe

    More US tanks, more US troops, more US influence. And who was the cause of Europe's current uber-welcoming attitude toward America? Why, none other than Putin, Putin, Putin!

    Look up the futility of arguing with fools.
    In order to come to any conclusion with respect to argumentation, it's an indispensable requirement that one needs to have an understanding of what true argument entails. The elements of argumentation, namely logic, evidence, and sound reasoning, are as foreign to your nature as the truth is to Putin's. In their place you've substituted invective, ad hominem, and wishful thinking. Therefore it's fitting for me to close the circle of this post by making reference to the subject line.

    Oh yes, and let me remind you that I couldn't care less whether you read this post, or not. My sole purpose is to point out how vapid and lame your pseudo-arguments are. I'll let forum members read and decide for themselves, but you've thoroughly established yourself as a quintessentially pro-Putin, anti-America, broken record troll. And there is literally nothing you can say that will prevent me from dissecting every one of your posts and exposing their hatefulness, emptiness, and complete lack of foundation.

    The reason I didn't do a personal history deep-dive

    Having said that, I wouldn't read too much into Chubais' "defection". I've read that 300,000 Russians have fled the country in the last month alone, so you don't have to be sly Chubais to know that Russia is poison right now, and this is not going to change any time soon, no matter what they do (or don't do) next.
    Is because I was sure there would be different opinions as to how close Chubais was to Putin, and the center of power. But that discussion is not terribly relevant because, whether at the very center or a bit further out, it's inarguably true that he was a member of the elite echelon.

    And that very fact, membership in the elite ranks, makes his defection qualitatively different from (assuming your numbers are correct) any of the hundreds of thousands of rank-and-file Russians who have also left. Among the pro-Putin segment of the population, what elites say and do commands a high degree of attention. They may not care if tens of thousands of the youngest and brightest are leaving, viewing them as traitors and scum, but someone like Chubais is bound to raise questions.

    Why? Because elites are at the top of the food chain when it comes to status, power, money, etc. They have it all, so why would one of them choose to leave all that behind? Chubais was, as I understand it, an outstanding example of a loyal servant of the regime. His sudden departure has got to be difficult to process for many, and a bitter pill for the Kremlin to swallow. And how will other elites react? That's difficult to say because they're all individuals. But elites pay close attention to such events because they're always looking out for their own survival, shifts in the power structure, and how they can maintain or improve their own status. So it's my gut feeling that, although done in hushed whispers, there must be a heightened level of chatter among some in the privileged class. It won't surprise me if more defections happen. Of course, if they plan and execute well, we won't know until after it's happened.

    I've been following the news looking for further explanation, or comment, or condemnation, by the Russian govt. I haven't seen anything and, even if I missed seeing an article, you'd think that any communication from the Kremlin would be repeated and analyzed by others. As of now, it seems like the departure of Chubais is being given the silent treatment. That silence, in and of itself, deserves further discussion and analysis, but that's a topic worthy of a separate post.

    Pedro,

    If you are a Russian, I pray for your country.

    If you are an Islamist, I pray for your women.

    If you are a Marxist, that ship sailed a long time ago. Today's Russia isn't anywhere close to being Marxist.

    Well, I'm not a prince, so I'll give it to you straight. You ARE a moron.

    Who gives a fuck that Putin's father fought the Nazis? Of course he fought the Nazis, every man in the USSR fought the Nazis. How does it absolve his homicidal son?

    Before getting into a discussion of this event's significance, if anyone takes exception to the "sinking ship" characterization, I would simply point out that it doesn't matter what you or I think, it only matters what Chubais thinks. As someone who's been in or around senior levels of govt for quite a while, he's obviously in a better position to know than anyone in this forum.

    It's also noteworthy that previous Russian military "special operations," including prior incursions into Ukraine, never triggered such a response. Why now? My personal theory is that never has Russia faced such a severe and united backlash. And that Chubais is savvy enough to know that Russia faces a dim future for years to come. In other words, the ship may have suffered blows in the past, but it wasn't in danger of sinking the way it is now.

    I haven't done a deep dive into his personal history, but he's described as having been an advisor to Putin. To me that means, at a minimum, that he was acceptable to Putin's circle of insiders and also seen as loyal and non-threatening. To have someone like that not only resign, but also leave the country, has got to be sending a few shockwaves through govt circles and potentially through the public at large.

    It'll be interesting to see how the Kremlin handles this over the next few days. Will Chubais be portrayed as one of the "traitors and scum," or will the reaction be relatively low key? So far all I've seen is an acknowledgement that Chubais stepped down "on his own accord," without further comment.

    One intriguing question is whether Chubais had an exit plan already laid out, or whether something changed recently that convinced him he needed to get out of Dodge ASAP? I'm leaning toward the former theory, as anyone with money and resources would be foolish not to have a full set of contingency plans.

    It's a certainty that no official or media discussions that dwell on the negatives will be allowed. But I'll be keeping an eye out for signals of any possible ripple effects. If other prominent figures feel that the exit door might be slamming shut, who knows how they'll react? Interesting times!
    Chubais was more than an "advisor" to Putin. Chubais is one of the main creators of Putin. His cast a decisive vote (allegedly) when a small group of Russian oligarchs made Putin a heir apparent to Boris Yeltsin back in 1997.

    Having said that, I wouldn't read too much into Chubais' "defection". I've read that 300,000 Russians have fled the country in the last month alone, so you don't have to be sly Chubais to know that Russia is poison right now, and this is not going to change any time soon, no matter what they do (or don't do) next.
