Ukraine, Putin, Strelkov, Shoigu

"US & Russia quiet about each other's false flags" -

Lots of media now on the Ukraine side of the war not going very well ... they are setting up the wind-down / exit

The BBC the other day was highlighting, 'Ukraine war: The men who don't want to fight' ... with the key message that many Ukrainians don't want to do this war either.

Tho the beeb held back from detailing the full horror, the fact that barely-trained Ukraine men are sent by the tens of thousands into violent death, for no genuine military purpose, other than padding the purses of the war profiteers.

It seems a war crime itself to force people into combat like that, into mine-fields and being hit by bomb-dropping drones, with nearly no preparation. Firing a gun a few times is not 'training' ... it needs to be so practiced one does it well under stress.

Tho the BBC did let on, that the most effective route Ukrainians can use to escape Ukraine and its border patrols, is via the 600-kilometre, much-unguarded border with Romania, over Carpathian mountains so rough that a number die attempting the crossing.

Igor Strelkov is in jail till his September hearing, unable to post on the internet, but via his few lawyers / visitors allowed, his thoughts on the Prigozhin killing are being reported.

Strelkov's reported feeling is that Putin was intending to honour the deal to let Prigozhin live and be active in Belarus and Africa ...
but that Prigozhin's plane was most likely downed by rogue actions of Defence Minister (also oligarch) Sergei Shoigu and his crew, who control the anti-aircraft missiles in Russia.

Air crews were angry about Prigozhin's killing of 12 Russian pilots in June, when aircraft attacked the Wagner columns, and Shoigu's alleged misconduct and corruption had been the main target of Prigozhin's denunciations in his June 'March for Justice'.


Shoigu is sufficiently well-linked to some other oligarchs so that Putin can't remove him easily, is the general thought, and Shoigu has been purging military commanders - such as the famous General Surovikin - who could move against him, leading a good share of the Russian army also wishing Shoigu was gone.

When Prigozhin was on his June march, much of the Russian army just stood aside ... and all power centres in Russia took note of both that, and Putin fleeing from Moscow. Everyone sees the fragility now.

The West didn't win militarily in Ukraine, nor with the economic sanctions ... but the war may indeed have inflamed internal conflicts which can unravel Russia in the near future. There may well be some other 'warlord' move one day, by either some of the oligarch private armies, or by someone like the Chechens.

And Putin may slowly see what can be done about Shoigu, who has now perhaps killed Putin's friend of 30 years.
