Blinken: ‘No meaningful pullback’ from Russian troops at Ukrainian border

…from Politico

[ Editor’s Note: Now the US word game war enters the Ukraine showdown. The public is being played, as usual, with the diplomatic word games. Blinken begins with the slick qualifier of ‘meaningful’, but you notice he does not provide any context for that.

The US military, not being idiots risking to piss the Whitehouse off followed right in line, with their own qualifier of “we did not see any withdrawal of Russian troops”. That could be an accurate statement because they have not looked.

And Biden, wanting of course to get some commander in chief publicity used the term “threatening position”. Amazingly left out was any mention of the “threatening position of NATO and US forces on the Russian border, and the Donbas ethnic Russian civilians being shelled for years now, with weapons and ammo courtesy of the United States.

Biden seems fine with the US having done that, but does not like it when Trump tries to coup him out of power. Imagine that. The Biden team may think we are too stupid to notice this, but they could be wrong.

The diplomatic ball is in the hands of Germany and France to live up to their Minsk agreement commitments to pass legislation to give political autonomy to the Donbas ethnic Russian region.

Zelensky does not want to risk any blowback on this happening. If he wanted, he could negotiate a deal in a week with the Russians. But the US might cut off the US red ink borrowed money and military supplies we are sending.

Does the US want to keep another ‘forever war’ going in Ukraine, based on its past record of loving forever wars? God knows the military loves them.

Why would Russia want to make a ‘meaningful pull back’ without some meaningful progress on the Donbas issue? Duhhh! The Donbas people are not seeking new territory, while Kiev is. This is not rocket science.

The Minsk agreement is back on the table. Why would Putin want to fold his tent and leave now? If the Normandy Four entities ‘pretend’ to negotiate, like the last time, then Putin can ‘pretend’ to withdraw.

The West shafted the Donbas people with the fake Minsk agreement. This military exercise by Putin is free, as the Russian maneuvers have to be done every year, because NATO insists on its right to expand and threaten Russia by reaching his border.

Think of what the US or German response would be if Russia wanted to be on their borders, maybe organizing a coup in part of Alaska with the natives there… Jim W. Dean ]

America’s politicians, diplomats and military have conveniently forgotten the slaughter they unleased on Odessa when the Worker’s Union building was attacked and burned. We know now that one of the big oligarchs emptied some of the prisons to form ‘murder-teams’ to unleash onto the Donbas public to terrorize them into running for their lives. This strangled pregnant secretary is a bookend to the “Kristina and her baby’ photo we recently showed, one that VT has not forgotten. She was beaten and strangled with the lamp chord, the masked killer, a big brute, photographed in the windows and on the roof. With proper armed security this would not have happened. We take no joy in republishing these, but honoring those savagely murdered must be done from time to time…JD

While the Russian Defense Ministry says some troops were pulling back after completing military training, Biden said on Tuesday that Russian troops remain in a “threatening position.” NATO leaders have similarly said that their organization has seen no sign of deescalation.

“At the moment, we have not seen any withdrawal of Russian forces,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, according to the Associated Press. “If they really start to withdraw forces, that’s something we will welcome but that remains to be seen.”

In a statement on Wednesday, Blinken said that if the Russian parliament decides to ask President Vladimir Putin to recognize the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine — where Russian-backed separatists have waged a yearslong battle against the Ukrainian government — as independent, it would “undermine Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity” and cause uncertainty in Russia’s diplomatic efforts.

Blinken said the recognition would “constitute a gross violation of international law, call into further question Russia’s stated commitment to continue to engage in diplomacy to achieve a peaceful resolution of this crisis and necessitate a swift and firm response from the United States in full coordination with our Allies and partners.”

  1. I find it incredible that the Ukrainians does not realize that they are being used and essentially now a US territory. Europe does not have anyone with a spine and have no problem joining the US in its wars, regime change operations, and sanctioning other countries. The useless UN is incapable of holding Saudia Arabia, UAE, Israel, and the US for its genocide of the people of Yemen. The UN is even in the sanctions business. For over sixty years the US has a blockade on Cuba and occupies a part of that country. In forty years that blockade will be a hundred years old. We are occupying other countries and no power on earth can get us to leave. There is an old saying : a man is known by the company he keeps.

  2. Oh what a wonderful job Biden and his band of criminals (Blinkie, Sullivan, Nulan,etc.,) are doing.
    There are those that are waiting for our economy to implode in order for our empire to cease to exist.
    It does not matter if America goes broke, they will find the funds for their military bases, secret labs, alphabet security agencies, military complex, and other agencies to keep on trucking. Retired people will no longer receive Social Security and government workers that are deemed essential workers will probably be paid in promissory notes. I hope I live long enough to see the end of this gang of crooks.

    • The boys (and girls) at VT are holding back judgment on Uncle Joe Biden and his tokens administration. Depending on how things go, they will call Biden God’s other son or a useless old pile of shit. Well, I’m calling this one early. He has been for 40 years and still is a useless pile of shit.
