The Trends Journal, which is opposed to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine—but understands why they have and have long detailed it in our magazine over the decades—had forecast before the war began that little Ukraine would lose a military confrontation against the Russian bear. 

Ignoring our forecast and spreading their propaganda, since the war began on 24 February, the mainstream media continues to sell Washington’s propaganda that Russia is somehow losing to the Ukrainians and its forces are in disarray.

Get This in Your Head

Russian President Vladimir Putin addressed his parliament on Thursday and gave a war update. He said, “Largely speaking, we haven’t even yet started anything in earnest."

Putin's comments about the conflict in Ukraine have been consistent and he has made sure that he does not consider Russia's engagement a "war." 

Putin went on to say that Russia is not opposed to peace talks, "but those who reject them should know that the further it goes, the harder it will be for them to negotiate with us.”

The Russian president, again, blasted Western support for Ukraine and said these countries are content with fighting Russia until “the last Ukrainian.” He said the U.S. cannot envision a unipolar world and wants to “enforce its version of the global order.”

“We are hearing that they want to defeat us on the battlefield. Let them try,” he said.

Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, also took a shot at the resignation of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. He wrote in a statement: “We would like to hope that someday in Great Britain more professional people who can make decisions through dialogue will come to power.”

Zelensky, holding true to form, told CNN in an interview that Kyiv will continue its fight against Russia until it reclaims every inch of land that has been lost in the war. Recent estimates say Russia and separatists control about 20 percent of the country. Zelensky pointed out that most of the country controlled by Russia has been reduced to rubble. 

Ukrainian leaders insist that once their forces get a hold of advanced missile systems, the tide of the war will turn.

“Ukrainians are not ready to give away their land, to accept that these territories belong to Russia,” Zelensky said. “This is our land. We always talk about that, and we are intending to prove it.”

One of the most formidable voices who spoke out in favor of concessions was Henry Kissinger, the 98-year-old former secretary of state. He told the World Economic Forum in May that Zelensky should negotiate for a peaceful resolution.

“Negotiations need to begin in the next two months before it creates upheavals and tensions that will not be easily overcome,” Kissinger said. “Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante.”

He said pursuing the war “beyond that point would not be about the freedom of Ukraine, but a new war against Russia itself.”

He said Ukraine should be willing to cede territory in the peace process, which drew immediate backlash in the media and from Zelensky.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday marked the 75th anniversary of the Central Intelligence Agency and credited the agents working there for “exposing Putin's playbook,” which “punched a gigantic hole in the pretense, and discredited his lies.”

TRENDPOST: Anything less that pure hatred for Putin borders on treason in the U.S. media. The country has been brainwashed since the start of the conflict that Putin is a modern-day Hitler. The only person standing in his way is Zelensky, the Churchill of our time. 

Putin correctly said last week that Western leaders, who are fueled by their hatred for Russia, would be quite content to fight Moscow until “the last Ukrainian.” Putin said the U.S. cannot imagine a unipolar world and wants to “enforce its version of the global order.”

Putin is not afraid of the West and, at the beginning of the war, said countries “that get into their heads to meddle in ongoing events from the side and create unacceptable strategic threats for Russia, they must know that our response to counterpunches will be lightning-quick.”

Gerald Celente has said the world is already at war, but it will not be officially declared until the first flash of a nuclear detonation appears. 

Zelensky, in the meantime, insists that the war is far from over, but imagined a world where Ukraine was accepted as a member, and was protected by Article 5 under the charter. 

“The world is doing a lot, but it could have been easier—Ukraine could have been accepted as a NATO member. It would be much more straightforward than many people imagine,” he said.

      The U.S. (largely the CIA) agitated this war and the American people blindly comply, but they will think differently when they are forced to treat their children for radiation burns. Fuck Zelensky and his Nazis collaborators. Also, and again, Congress stands idly by why stupid Biden goes to war with the most powerful nuclear country in the world—Russian. I pray hard this ends peacefully.

    The sad thing is that people don’t mean anything….my brother in Russia is having a heart problems and I can’t even send money to help him. I can’t fly over there easily also. Expedia even erased word Moscow or Russia from their search. What a shame.
    Putin is right, United states can’t rule the world. And people here just need to understand and accept it. Russia is huge country with huge history and traditions, that people wants to keep and Western ideology is swiping the world. He is protecting his county from it. I moved to United States 12 years ago, but this is not the country that I thought it would be. I still love it and hope it will turn around, but I highly doubt that it will. I really feel bad for all the people who died in wars for freedom of United states and veterans. Sad….

    I would agree; i truly feel sad for all the veterans & patriots that have died, thinking they are preserving America’s freedom & our way of life.

    They were all lied too.

    The Devil does rule the world, until the “Prince Of Peace “ returns. I believe the devil has hardened our leaders hearts; because he does delight in bloodshed, death ,& destruction.

    I am concerned about what may happen to Americans taking advantage of residence permits in a variety of East Block countries. These countries are very affordable and offer foreigners liberal visa and resident permits to work and live there. Often, its the young and tech savvy “digital nomads” who are attracted to living in Georgia or Bulgaria, for example. All they need is a laptop and a high speed broadband internet connection to run their business.

    However, I suspect a new European War is coming eventually, given the Western animus towards Russia in-general. This is driven by each nation’s “deep state”, so removing one head of state such as P.M. Boris Johnson won’t likely change foreign affairs in the home office. For example, if a new war broke-out in Poland tomorrow, it would catch many by surprise.

    Once war happens, borders historically close-down fast and its foreseeable that foreigners living in or near the next war zone might become trapped there, unable to travel or leave. So, globalism is not sustainable when a war is lurking around the corner. Putin can negatively impact East Block economic development indirectly with the threat of a disruptive war hanging over them.
