Is Russia About To Invade Ukraine?

Russian Military Parade - Photo by Vitaly V. KuzminWar is coming, but unfortunately most Americans are completely oblivious to what is about to happen. In recent weeks, tens of thousands of Russian soldiers have been massing at eight staging areas along Russia’s border with Ukraine, and some Pentagon officials believe that this could represent preparations for a full-scale invasion. But ultimately Russia has much bigger concerns than just Ukraine. At this point, the Russian people view the United States more negatively than they did even during the height of the Cold War, and their leading thinkers openly talk about the inevitability of a future conflict between the two superpowers. The Russians have been feverishly upgrading and modernizing their strategic nuclear forces in anticipation of that conflict, but unfortunately the U.S. military has not made similar strides under the Obama administration. As a result, the balance of power has shifted dramatically in favor of the Russians.

 

Things have been relatively calm in Ukraine for a while, but that may be about to change in a major way. According to Business Insider, Russian forces are “encircling Ukraine from the north, east, and south”…

Something big may be about to go down in Ukraine.

For the Ukrainian soldiers that are stationed on the eastern border with Russia, however, things have already escalated to a conventional conflict — for example in Shyrokyne, on the Azov Sea coast east of the port city of Mariupol, Ukrainian forces have reported being the target of over 200 rounds of mortars and artillery fire in the middle of the night from separatist forces.

And the conflict in Ukraine looks like it could be on the verge of boiling over as Russian and Russian-backed forces are encircling Ukraine from the north, east, and south.

Needless to say, these developments are deeply alarming U.S. officials. In fact, Bill Gertz of the Washington Free Beacon says that up to 40,000 Russian soldiers stand poised to launch a full-scale invasion at this moment…

The Pentagon has identified eight staging areas in Russia where large numbers of military forces appear to be preparing for incursions into Ukraine, according to U.S. defense officials.

As many as 40,000 Russian troops, including tanks, armored vehicles, and air force units, are now arrayed along Ukraine’s eastern border with Russia.

Additionally, large numbers of Russian military forces will conduct exercises in the coming days that Pentagon officials say could be used as cover for an attack on Ukraine.

August 24th is Independence Day in Ukraine, and some analysts are pointing to that date as a time when a potential attack could occur.

Hopefully that will not be the case, and we should remember that Russian President Vladimir Putin tends to do the unexpected. Just look at what happened in Crimea. He was able to annex the entire region without a shot hardly being fired.

When it comes to geopolitics, way too often the Russians are playing chess while the Obama administration is playing checkers.

And as I mentioned in the opening paragraph, the Russians are very much preparing for the day when there will be a military showdown between the United States and Russia.

For example, the newly developed Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile (also known as the “Satan 2”) has the capability of destroying an entire region the size of Texas. Each missile has 12 independently targetable warheads, and essentially what that means is that one missile goes up and 12 nuclear warheads come down. It is a weapon of exceedingly great power, and we have no way of stopping it

Russia is preparing to test-fire a nuclear weapon which is so powerful it could reportedly destroy a whole country in seconds.

The “Satan 2” missile is rumoured to be the most powerful ever designed and is equipped with stealth technology to help it dodge enemy radar systems .

This terrifying doomsday weapon is likely to strike fear into the hearts of Western military chiefs, as current missile defence technology is totally incapable of stopping it.

But to me, what is even more frightening is the fleet of strategic nuclear submarines that the Russians are putting together. The following comes from a major British news source

Vladimir Putin is assembling a secret fleet of super submarines which could topple NATO and plunge the world into war.

A report by naval experts warns that Russia already has a small but sophisticated army of subs which are capable of launching missile strikes across the globe.

These submarines can dive extremely deep and they are incredibly quiet. The advanced stealth capabilities that they possess make them an enormously powerful weapon

Andrew Metrick, who co-wrote the report for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), said: “Russia operates a small number of very small, nuclear powered submarines that are capable of diving in excess of several thousand meters.

“You can imagine what a clandestine deployable deep submergence vehicle could be used for.”

Yes, it doesn’t take much imagination to see what these ultra-quiet subs could be used for.

Someday, a fleet of Russian nuclear submarines could come right up to our coastlines without us ever knowing that they were there. In the middle of the night they could surface, launch their missiles, and strategic targets would start being destroyed within just a couple of minutes.

And if the U.S. was even able to muster much of a response, the Russian anti-ballistic missile systems are able to destroy just about anything that we can throw at them.

To say that the balance of power has shifted from the days of the Cold War would be a massive understatement.

Meanwhile, the Russians have also been creating a “cloak” which can reportedly make units “invisible” to enemy radar

A Russian defense company has created a “cloak,” which it says can make electronic objects invisible to enemy radar. The aim of the fiber technology, which is used in the cloak, is to make weapons invisible to prying eyes and detection systems.

The St. Petersburg-based company Roselectronics has come up with the invention and says it can make weapons that use thermal, infrared, and electromagnetic radar in targeting invisible.

“The main idea of the development is to create coverage that reduces radar visibility of the object both on the visible and microwave spectrums,” Georgy Medovnikov from Roselectronics told Ruptly, RT’s video agency.

Roselectronics believes the lightweight and flexible material can be used to protect armored vehicles, missile systems and warplanes. According to its creators, the material is unique in its ability to absorb radio-electronic signals and interfere with the distribution of electronic traces.

Here in the United States, the Obama administration has had much different priorities, and so our strategic nuclear forces are hopelessly outdated. 60 Minutes has shown that our strategic nuclear forces are still using rotary phones and the kind of eight inch floppy disks that you could literally flop around in your hand that they were using back in the 1970s.

If you follow my writing regularly, you already know that I have written extensively about a future conflict with Russia.

At one time the doctrine of “mutually assured destruction” applied, but at this point things have changed dramatically.

Russian military theorists have spent a lot of time studying how to fight and win a nuclear war, and now they have the technological edge to potentially be able to do it.

Sadly, these kinds of articles tend to get less attention than many of my other articles because people simply do not understand the threat we are facing, and by the time they do it will likely be way too late.

    As a cold war veteran…that hunted the soviet subs…It simply amazes me how America is treating Russia…obummer continues to poke the bear…the Word of God Is clear where Russia is headed…they say it would take about 20 billion to harden the grid for an emp…but yet obummer says “global warming” is the militaries top priority…

    America is under God’s judgement…these fires and floods and earthquakes keep getting called “biblical”…perhaps they really are…I’m LOOKING UP!

      “the Word of God Is clear where Russia is headed”

      So tell us, where is Russia headed?

  • DJohn1

    The important question at this point is why?
    You do know that if you become the number one world power that suddenly all the nukes are pointed not here but at you?
    Or is Russian leadership that ambitious and that blind?
    Potentially between us we can lead humanity to the stars.
    Only if we can negotiate with one another from our leadership will this happen.
    We are on the verge of discoveries. Some of which may lead to the end of the curse of aging.
    It is possible we will find cures for all diseases. But only if we are willing to work with one another to obtain that knowledge.
    It is possible for the first time in known history we as a species may be able to feed the entire human population on this Earth.
    WE are too young yet. We need guidance but most of all we need a way to live with one another without violence.
    War is a curse and it is a similar curse like the one that kills us all whether we are top or bottom, rich or poor, we all live less than 125 years and in that time all of us die.
    So the Russians want to make life more of a hell on Earth?
    The most powerful man the Russians ever had, the most ruthless man that killed a lot of people had to be Joseph Stalin.
    Despite everything, despite being all powerful, Joseph Stalin is dead within the required 125 years.
    The same goes for everyone. We all age and we all die. Unless someone gets greedy and kills us young.
    The craziness is we build weapons instead of solutions to what plagues all of mankind.

    Quote from above: When it comes to geopolitics, way too often the Russians are playing chess while the Obama administration is playing checkers.

    More like the Russian are playing the most advanced strategy video game and the Americans are playing “Shoots and Ladders.” Americans are wussies. Russians are winners. Americans are fat, lazy and stupid. Russians are fit, industrious and intelligent.

    How can America compete in anything if the average teenager can’t even identify Iraq on an unmarked map? We have been there since September 12, 2001 and 60% of high school kids can’t even find the country.

    I challenge anyone to prove me wrong!

    • Kev

      We didn’t invade Iraq till 2003.

        I know that, I am talking about operatives, spies, how to quickly tumble the regime. It was planned, the twin towers coming down, the war, etc.

      • horse777res

        The real reason that the U.S invaded Iraq was that Hussein threatened to leave the Petro Dollar. So at the end of the day, it’s all about the money dequised as freedom.

    In the first place, Russia is not about to invade Ukraine (contrary to the rubbish spewing out by the western propaganda machine). Even if it did, why would it have been all right for the United States to invade Iraq, but not all right for Russia to similarly invade Ukraine? In the second place, the tyrant Obama was the one who invaded Ukraine by ordering the CIA to recruit seditionists, anarchists and criminals in Kiev with the sole purpose of toppling that duly elected government. As far as the U.S. military is concerned, it is bloated beyond reason. If anything, the defense budget should be slashed by at least half.

    • George Evans

      the US spent $5 billion on fomenting the Maidan… maybe the CIA budget should be similarly cut….

      • greanfinisher .

        If past history was any guide, the CIA’s prime role was to destabilize sovereign governments that weren’t part of the American empire.

        • George Evans

          and that continues to the present,,,,

          only when the USA pulls back from it,s drive to conquest and pillaging will the CIA become more mature…

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    Yes.

    1. Russia has a low birthrate and not enough taxpayers to support an empire.

    2. Kiev is an important city in Russian Orthodox history.

    3. Who really wants to stop ’em other than Ukrainian’s?

  • Todd Perry

    The answer to that question is a big NO !

    –Russia is being forced to shore up their borders under constant attack by the West and NATO who have been sending in operatives to attack and blow up targets in Russia.

    –The US and NATO HAVE also been moving in missiles INCLUDING NUKES, troops and other weapons on the Russian border FORCING Russia to respond to protect their country and Crimea which succeeded from the Ukraine to protect themselves from the West.

    If Russia had come to our borders we would do the same.

    –There ARE gun fights going on at the Russian border.

    –Putin has also put out a video BEGGING Americans and their allies to wake up and realize the position that Russia is being forced into and the very REAL possibility of a Nuclear WW3 being forced upon them by the West and their allies.

    – Putin has also stated he WILL use nuclear weapons if he feels his country or his bases are being attacked and obama and their allies know it.

    –Russia is doing what they MUST do to protect their country for the attacks of the west and the world needs to wake up and realize Russia is NOT in the wrong here and it is the West attacking Russia and poking them constantly in the eye.

    –If we get into war with Russia it WILL because of the acts of war and provocation from obama, NATO, Soros, Ukraine who have been exterminating Russian , men, women and children i n the Ukraine who are causing this confrontation.

    –What the West and their allies are doing to Russia is WRONG and are acts of terrorism and war against Russia.

    –If we have a nuclear war with Russia and if we survive it WILL be America and their allies who WILL be remembered for starting this war and killing hundreds of millions of people globally and Russia WILL be remembered for trying to stop the war as they have been trying to do.

    —-Americans and the world needs to wake up and realize that we ARE the closest to a Nuclear War then anytime in US history and we MUST get our leaders to stop it before it is to late.

    Get a good map and note how we have ringed Russia with military bases. How would you feel if Russia had a few military bases with airfields and missile launchers just across the border in Canada and Mexico? And regarding the Crimea, it was part of Russia under the Czars and the majority of its citizens never wanted to be Ukranians. It was Khruschev who gave it away, having been born there.

    • A guy from Ukraine

      that’s right my friend. And another piece of truth that is not reported by the puppet western media is that Crimea rejoined Russia with a pro-95% vote. Those living in Crimea today view thier days in Ukraine as nothing short of a CURSE and thank God that they have been deprived of all that western backed national nazi/fascist nonsense that has overwhelmed Ukraine today.

      • BanBait

        Crimea has been Russian since about forever. And if Putin wants to destroy Trump’s campaign, all he has to do is invade Ukraine. I suspect that he’d rather have Hillary anyway, especially considering what kind of material he probably has availble to blackmail her with.

      • winrob

        Thank you! I appreciate your support and info.

  • Steve

    You will hear of wars and rumours of wars SEE THAT YOU ARE NOT TROUBLED.

    The Lord said not to worry. So I don’t. It’s really quite simple really. If the russians want to blow me up then amen.

  • Steve

    Also, when the Lord returns everything will be going on as normal -folks will be buying and selling and giving in marriage. No hint of a nuclear war there…….

  • A guy from Ukraine

    you are 100% correct. As a local onlooker, I’ve covered much of this in my broader comment which is waiting for the approval by the Admin of the site.

  • Great post, thank you.

  • www.tomatobubble.com

    And what does this have to do with America? If the invasion happens, it will only be to remove the evil tyrants who got installed by an illegal US sponsored coup. Ukraine and the world would be a much better place without these evil men.

  • www.tomatobubble.com

    You painted a totally false picture of the whole situation. It’s the US and her European vassals who are the aggressors, not Russians. You want to have peace with Russia then tell the US gov’t to stop provoking them.

  • www.tomatobubble.com

    Good post, except you are totally off about Hitler Hitler was not financed by the bankers, nor was he the aggressor in WW2.
    Invasion of the Bolshevik controlled USSR was purely defensive, in order to neutralize the then imminent Soviet invasion. Also, keep in mind trhat the USSR and the US were allies, both controlled by the same forced.

    read this:

    Fourteen Days that Saved the World

    The critical moment of World War Two – if not of the twentieth century – is generally regarded as Adolf Hitler’s decision in 1941 to launch an unprovoked assault upon a hitherto neutral and peaceful Soviet Union. Operation Barbarossa, as it was called, is perceived as the great tactical mistake which doomed Nazi Germany to defeat. Icebreaker, by Russian historian Victor Suvorov, exposes this scenario as nonsense. This extensively researched piece of historical revisionism provides compelling evidence that Operation Barbarossa was a reluctant pre-emptive strike against a massive Soviet military machine which was at that time poised to invade not just Germany, but the whole of Western Europe.

    Thanks for this information, and I agree, there are globalist elitist families with ties to the world banks, pulling the strings.

  • pulltheweeds

    all russia has to do is turn off the gas. one cold winter and europe is toast. china will buy the excess. checkmate.

  • greanfinisher .

    Yes, ethnic cleansing, meaning to expel or eliminate those that are still supportive of the legitimate Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. Obviously, the world can never entertain peace and prosperity with the American imperialists bent on expanding their empire in their quest for world domination.

    “…we should remember that Russian President Vladimir Putin tends to do the unexpected. Just look at what happened in Crimea. He was able to annex the entire region without a shot hardly being fired….”

    the people of Crimea overwhelmingly VOTED to join Russia

    “…Someday, a fleet of Russian nuclear submarines could come right up to our coastlines without us ever knowing that they were there. In the middle of the night they could surface, launch their missiles, and strategic targets would start being destroyed within just a couple of minutes….”

    and how would Russia survive the resulting nuclear winter???
