Retired General Michel Yakovleff went on French television on December 11 and called for attacking Russia’s Victory Parade.
The parade, held in Red Square on May 9, celebrates Russia’s victory over Nazi Germany. Russia lost close to 30 million people during the war, beginning with Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of Russia and Eastern Europe by Hitler. For Russians, the parade signifies the defeat of an exceptionally vicious external enemy determined to exterminate them as subhumans, Untermenschen. The very same mentality and desire to slaughter Russians is alive and well 80 years hence in ultranationalist Ukraine.
Yakovleff appears to be rather dim-witted for a general. He apparently doesn’t realize that an attack on the Victory Parade would undoubtedly result in a patriotic desire on the part of the Russian population to once again defend the motherland from vicious external enemies—namely NATO, the USG, and its European satraps—all dedicated to taking down Russia and immiserating millions of its citizens.
Of course, this will not happen. Not again.
Mr. Yakovleff is lost in his violent fantasies, delusions going back years. In 2014, he declared the beginning of WWIII.
Meanwhile, the officiel du gouvernement, France’s Emmanuel Macron, is also living in a fantasy world of his own design. “Ultimately, there will be a need for negotiations with Russia, Macron says. He has also insisted that the terms of any talks must be decided by the Ukrainian themselves,” reports the AP.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy has made it perfectly clear negotiations will not occur until Russia leaves Ukraine and abandons its “annexed” territories. In other words, a return to the ultranationalist status quo—ethnic cleansing and killing of Russians in Donetsk and Luhansk.
Russia has repeatedly spelled out the objectives of its SMO. First, to disarm Ukraine, force its neutrality and prevent a NATO foothold, and second, to eliminate the indiscriminate murder of civilians in eastern Ukraine by ultranationalist Banderites.
Forget the silly and destructive portrayal of Russians as Hun-like rapists and killers. Facts on the ground (ignored in the West) reveal that characterization more accurately reflects the mentality and behavior of Ukraine’s Bandera worshipping neo-Nazis.
TIME magazine, with its history of cooperation with the CIA, lately put the green t-shirt guy on its cover. “Volodymyr Zelensky portrays himself as a ‘man of the people’, especially now that he can wear green combat fatigues on Ukrainian and international TV. But looking into this election in 2019 and the position of ordinary workers in the Ukrainian economy presents a different picture: he has always been more ‘a man of the oligarchs’ than a man of the people,” writes John Pickard.
The following recreation of the TIME cover is far more accurate.
