Little over a month since Russia’s special military operation began, its goals “remain unchanged,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova (MZ below) stressed, adding:
“The operation is carried out strictly in accordance with the plan. All of the stated goals will be achieved.”
They include demiltarizing and deNazifying Ukraine, liberating Donbass entirely, as well as “neutraliz(ing) threats” posed by US-controlled Kiev.
MZ stressed — that in stark contrast to how hegemon USA-dominated NATO operates — Russia’s military is taking great care to protect civilians and nonmilitary infrastructure.
It’s providing humanitarian aid and protected corridors for evacuation of Ukrainians from harm’s way to safety in Russia.
“Normal life is being restored in areas liberated from” US/NATO-supported Ukrainian Nazified battalions.
“Kiev authorities don’t care about their citizens,” MZ stressed.
“Ukrainian armed formations are using civilians as a human shields, forcibly keeping them in blockaded towns and preventing them, under threat of execution, from evacuating to Russia.”
US/NATO regimes “continue to flood Ukraine with weapons.”
They support perpetual war to the last Ukrainian and foreign mercenary recruited to join them.
US/NATO Nazification of Ukraine transformed the country into a “terrorist threat” in Europe’s heartland.
By positioning 100s of mines in the Black Sea, hegemon USA-controlled Ukraine “created grave risks” for commercial shipping in its waters.
“(U)ntethered naval mines are drifting towards the Bosporus Strait and can even reach the Mediterranean Sea.”
Turkey’s Department of Navigational Hydrography and Oceanography warned of the risk.
In flagrant breach of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, Kiev — in cahoots with US/NATO regimes — is recruiting terrorist militants to combat Russian forces.
MZ: “According to the available data, Western security services and the Security Service of Ukraine are working closely together on coordinating these efforts.”
US/Western “cynicism is manifested in the fact that (that its regimes actively recruit) terrorists” as proxy fighters against one invented enemy state after another.
Instead of opposing and combatting “international terrorism,” US-dominated NATO uses it as an instrument in pursuit of its diabolical aims.
MZ noted that regimes that “set a rabid dog on their neighbors risk being bitten by it.”
MZ quoted remarks by Igor Kirillov, head of Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Force of the Russian Armed Forces, saying the following:
“(S)tructures directly linked (to) the current US leadership, for instance the Rosemont Seneca investment fund, are involved in funding” Ukrainian biolabs that are developing deadly pathogens for use against invented enemies like Russia.
Headed by Hunter Biden, “(t)he fund has substantial financial resources and is closely linked with main subcontractors of the US (war) department.”
“This applies to Metabiota, a company that is, together with Black & Veatch, the main supplier of equipment for the Pentagon’s biolabs throughout the world.”
What’s been going on secretly in Ukraine and other countries is in flagrant breach of international law.
Documented evidence discovered by Russia in Ukraine “cannot be refuted by idle statements of representatives from the White House, the Department of State or Pentagon,” MZ stressed.
What’s going on poses a global threat.
Separately, MZ slammed so-called French foreign minister Le Drian’s hostile remarks about Russia.
Along with embarrassing himself, he abandoned “rules of decency and legality,” said MZ.
Ignoring decades of French involvement in US/NATO war crimes throughout the post-WW II period, Le Drian falsely accused Russia of rule of law breaches in Ukraine that its forces had nothing to do with.
Along with hegemon USA, Britain, Germany and other NATO regimes, France is actively involved in promoting forever war in Ukraine by supplying weapons and munitions — notably to its Nazified thugs.
In response to EU foreign policy chief Borrell and European Commissioner for Environment, Oceans and Fisheries Sinkevicius, falsely claiming that Russia weaponized Ukraine’s water resources, MZ responded as follows, saying:
Their phony claim “is a masterpiece and a ‘record’ when it comes to the depth of moral and professional degradation of Brussels.”
US/Western hate-mongering about all things Russian is more evidence of its decadent and wicked ways.
Since usurping power by the most brazen election fraud in US history, the Biden regime escalated war on Russia by proxy hot and other means.
Its Russophobic rage is additionally fueled by “failure of its plan to turn Ukraine into the anti-Russia (for) use as a bridgehead for striking our territory,” MZ explained.
Its recklessness and ruthlessness pushed things toward possibly rupturing bilateral relations altogether — what MZ called a “point of no return,” adding:
“It is their choice. We warned them many times. But they continue down this path” toward a formal break in relations.
Given its Russophobic rage over the past month, it’s practically there already.
At the same time, hindsight will likely show that US/Western regimes shot themselves in the foot by waging all-out proxy hot and unparalleled sanctions war on Russia.
As for relations ahead between Moscow and US/Western regimes over the short and intermediate term, draw your own conclusions from MZ’s following remarks, saying:
“(W)e just had enough of them, their arrogance, lack of respect, trampling on the interests of others, failing to understand what is going on, and outright ignorance of facts and history.”
“They don’t know how to negotiate, tend to rely exclusively on force, destroy the existing contractual mechanisms which have always served as a foundation of international relations no matter where you look, be it the economy, finances, business, culture, humanitarian ties, the defense sector, strategy and security, or countering new challenges and threats.”
Longer-term is too distant from now to speculate on whether East/West relations will stay unchanged, improve or deteriorate further.
At the same time, the risk of East/West war remains possible if lunatics in charge of the Washington asylum push things beyond a point of no return.
