Russian intelligence services GRU is coming out as the most effective in modern days after putting United States and the European flat footed on the Russia-Ukraine war.
GRU has been watching CIA covert operations in Middle East, Africa, and Europe carefully. Their assessment of the product of these operations is that Washington’s approach to conflicts is rather off the mark.
Instead of solving long standing political problems, they are fueling and funding more conflict in the name of democracy and human rights.
They have been funding terrorists in Syria, they supported Islamist in Egypt.
Libya was a stable country, it is now ruined.
If we check on Afghanistan and Iraqi, there is no future of security there.
If Washington pokes its nose in Europe’s geopolitik, there will be shifts particularly in defense and economics.
Moscow knows Washington will do nothing about Ukraine since they will mess it up. And when it comes to Russia, sanctions are mere belicose diplomacy and have limited consequences on Russia.
Military observers captured by pro-Russian militia gave assurances that they are not being mistreated by the militia, another score for the Russians; You have no reason to worry, we are in control’ is the message here.
The military observers were detained in Eastern Ukraine by the pro-Russian militia as they were traveling under the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe auspice.
Igor Strelkov the commander of the armed pro-Russian militia in Eastern Ukraine reported that the three Ukraine military officers were on a mission to capture militia leaders when they were captured.
Russian seems ready to pounce on Ukraine as the West bellows sanctions.
Indeed, these sanctions will have no consequence on Russia’s intention.
We might see a shift in geopolitics and Europe will face a serious gas crisis if Russia pulls the plug.
Russian intelligence services may also trigger another separatist movement in Ukraine and Kiev will be in Limbo.
There is only one way out of this, let Russia have its way silently, or Washington, European Union and NATO in general will have thick egg on their faces.
