Eventually, Russia Will Be A Member Of The EU

Now you could be forgiven for thinking that the title for this blog is somewhat strange, so let me explain.

Firstly, and as I have mentioned in my last blog on this subject, I am firmly of the opinion that Russia is not the aggressor in this war in Ukraine but in fact, NATO, led by the US. As I see it, Russia has been backed into a corner with the only way to protect its integrity and borders was to preempt any further moves by NATO/US to place nuclear weapons on its border.

Now briefly, what led up to this was concerted efforts by the US/NATO to foment unrest within Ukraine and this goes back to the NATO summit in Bucharest held in 2008 when the Bush administration pushed NATO to announce that both Ukraine and Georgia would become members.

This of course did not go down at all well with Russia, as it was basically the same as when Cuba decided to house Soviet nuclear weapons on America’s doorstep, and we all know what happened then. Yes, the US threatened nuclear war.

To make matters worse, the US involved themselves in their usual regime change tactic by fomenting unrest in Ukraine, resulting in the massacres in Odesa and Maidan Square in Kyiv in 2014, leading to the ousting of the pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych.

This led to the eastern Donbas region of Ukraine declaring independence, and after a referendum, Russia annexing Crimea.

From 2014 until now, a war has raged in Donbas with heavy civilian losses with the Nazi Azov battalion very prominent in the commission of various war crimes and atrocities.  During this time two agreements were made in Minsk which concerned the end of hostilities and autonomy for the two regions within the Donbas area. Ukraine constantly broke these agreements before scrapping the Minsk agreements altogether.

After restraint lasting 8 years, Russia eventually officially recognized both republics within the Donbas and crossed the border into Ukraine to carry out a de-nazifying operation within the country and stabilize the border between Ukraine and the Donbas republics.

This incursion by Russia, although widely predicted by the US and various other countries came as a surprise, or at least the speed of it did and was followed by blind panic and a raft of badly thought-out sanctions imposed without much thought. Now we have Europe in the throes of massive inflation, food shortages and fuel poverty. Yes, the sanctions have actually hurt the west more than Russia, in fact, the Rubble is at present standing at its highest against the dollar than it has for many years.

The ironic thing is that this blind panic to sanction Russia has shown the world just how valuable Russia is, in food production and power in the form of gas and oil. In other words, it has shown what an asset Russia would be to friendly countries or indeed to the EU.

Now I am sure there will be people throwing up their hands in horror and saying things like “ but the Russians are committing horrendous war crimes and just look at the way they are indiscriminately shelling and bombing civilian areas “ The problem is that they are not actually doing that, and we are constantly being fed inaccurate and untruthful propaganda by western media.

It is difficult to find proper unbiased journalistic content in the plethora of misinformation being churned out daily by western media outlets such as the BBC. If you really are interested in the truth, I would direct you to the writings of Eva Karen Bartlett and Graham William Philips. Both are exemplary in the reportage they produce and a credit to the journalistic profession. Eva for her efforts to bring out the truth found herself on a death list of people who the Ukrainian government wished would disappear.

Yes, no doubt there have been civilians killed but not deliberately, at least not by the Russians. What possible good would that do them and the same for destroying infrastructure that they will no doubt have to re-build after the war? Eva Bartlet gives the example of talking to a Russian commander and asking him why it seems to be taking a long time to secure the towns in the Donbas. He tells her that the Ukrainian army is using civilian buildings as firing points and also keeping the civilians in them as human shields, making it very difficult to progress without causing large amounts of civilian deaths. This is the reality on the ground.    

Ukraine is on the list as one of the most corrupt countries on the planet just ask Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden the mentally challenged US president. Hunter was paid $50,000 per month from Ukrainian oil company Burisma whilst his father was serving as Obama’s number two.

Zelensky, the present Ukrainian president was noted in the pandora papers as owning over a billion dollars in London property and has dealings through close associates in numbered accounts in Swiss banks.

So, to get back to my original point. Once this is over and I have a feeling it will end with the Donbas area firmly in the hands of its own, mainly Russian-speaking people and a corridor along the black sea coast to Crimea. Once people realise that they have been fed unadulterated nonsense and propaganda and that Putin was perhaps after all doing what a leader should do and protecting his borders. Perhaps when they realise that Russia can make a good friend but a bad enemy. Perhaps when the countries of NATO see how they have been used once again and have paid the price of unfettered loyalty to the US, then common sense will prevail, and Russia will be taken into the family of nations and become part of the EU making by far the largest trading block on the planet.

I would ask you to look at the leaders we have, Johnston, Biden, Zelensky, Sturgeon and the rest. What a choice we have, it’s more like the lineup of circus acts.

If I was to make a choice of a leader who would stand up for my country, I know who I would choose, and it wouldn’t be any of that lot of incompetent poodles.

I have been in business for well over half a century but I learn something new every day. My politics are the middle of the road. I believe that the far-right and far-left are equally harmful. Jim Murphy ( at that time, leader of the Scottish Labour party) asked me if I called myself a socialist. I said, "no Jim, I am not a socialist, I am a capitalist, but a capitalist with a social conscience.

One thought on “The World This Week From Mennies”

  1. Excellent commentary particularly in regard to the pathetic standard of what passes (or not) for journalism as fed to a largely politically lethargic audience anaesthetised by western mainstream media propaganda.
