What do events in the Donbass have to do with Russian victory?

Let’s examine the consequences of tactical success within the strategic context

Thomas Bergman

In the land of Western and Ukrainian media spaces, supported by corporate institutional power, there is often talk of how Russian successes don’t mean much.  They say that Ukrainians are bleeding Russia of munitions and manpower while luring Russian forces into traps and such. They say that once NATO weapons and training are delivered to Ukraine, the tide will surely turn upon the weight of Western power and expertise.  They also downplay the implications of the success of Russian forces in the Donbass, saying that it’s only a few small cities, while Russia can’t even take a single major city.  How do these opinions hold up to the scrutiny of strategic military analysis?  The results of such analysis bear great fruit against such notions propagated on behalf of the Ukrainian regime.

Author: Vladimir Platov


After Recep Tayyip Erdoğan officially announced his intention to run in the upcoming 2023 presidential elections in Turkey, the current White House administration gave a clear signal to its Western “allies” to intensify the campaign against the current Turkish leader and prepare measures to oust him.  Although there is no talk of a coup d’état in Turkey yet, the ouster of Erdoğan as a result of the elections has become quite clear.

Finding a Scapegoat Instead of Talking About German War Crimes

Friday, 24 June 2022 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Declan Hayes

Let’s not talk about German war crimes. Let’s do it the German way. Let’s find a scapegoat, one with Slavic, untermensch blood and let’s blame her.

From Donetsk’ poignant Alley of AngelsAlina Lipp, a young and personable German (with a Russian father), explains that the Berlin regime is prosecuting her for reporting that the families of the children the Alley of Angels commemorates believe their stories and those of their martyred children should be heard.

Get ready to resist the PCSC Act!

Saturday, 25 June 2022 — NetPolSave Our Rights

New Police powers are coming into force next week!

On 28th June, most of the powers in the Police, Crime and Sentencing Act will come into force. This includes the changes to the Public Order Act that will allow the police to impose conditions on protests that are too noisy. It also reduces the threshold for arrest and prosecution for breaching conditions from having to prove that a person knew the conditions were imposed to only having to prove they “ought to know”.

Ukraine SitRep – Zolote Cauldron Closes – Lysichansk Blocked (Corrected twice)

Saturday, 25 June 2022 — Moon of Alabama

[Corrected (twice) below]

In the last situation report about the war in Ukraine I discussed the situation near Lysichansk.

The Ukrainian leadership is still sending new units into the Lysichansk cauldron in the east. The Russians do not mind that. Their job is to “demilitarize” Ukraine. To enclose more troops in one swoop makes that easier.

Saturday, 25 June 2022 — Caitlin Johnstone

Listen to a reading of this article:

“China is a strange, backwards nation ruled by tyrants,” said the nation founded by Puritans who used to execute women for witchcraft and just killed reproductive rights protections because they think Jesus told them to.
