9 September 2014. The “Russian Invasion”… Why That’s Crank BS and the Real Deal Behind the VSN Offensive

00 the Ukraine. 1991-2014. 02.09.14

Recently, there’s been all sort of brouhaha in the Western media about a notional Russian invasion of Novorossiya. Nothing could be further from the truth. If there was an intervention on the scale of that in the 2008 South Ossetia war (2 mechanised divisions and 2 airborne divisions), it would’ve been bloody obvious. Firstly, beyond hundreds of AFVs, there’d be thousands (literally) of soft admin vehicles carrying supplies, munitions, and spares for the forces. Such was not seen. Huh? Modern armies require a logistics tail, and the Russian army is no exception. There were no cargo trucks, no breakdown vehicles, no mobile field kitchens, no mobile evacuation hospitals… nothing. That is, no military force crossed the border, as no one saw any of the requisite support units anywhere. ZILCH. NADA. NICHEVO. Besides which, all armies have operational doctrines… their signatures, if you will. The small force that crossed the border didn’t follow Russian offensive doctrine… they did follow Russian protocols for a quick clandestine recce and return to base… both sides have done that for some time. That is, there was no invasion, there was a patrol action, one of many in recent days.

Then, what was behind the VSN offensive if it wasn’t Russian forces? It was units made up of ex-Ukrainian Army personnel who rallied to Russia in the Crimea. Note well that the Western media doesn’t talk of these men at all. They don’t exist as far as the New York Times, Washington Post, or The Economist report. Thousands of Ukie soldiers rallied to Russia because the fascist shits in Kiev made it clear that they were going to ram Galician hillbilly pidgin down everyone’s throat and that the whole country would have to swallow Galician Uniate lies wholesale (don’t forget, the Galician Uniates fought willingly for Hitler and gladly killed Jews, Poles, Roma, and Russians for the Nazis… history records this).Of course, if one wasn’t a Galician Uniate, this wasn’t an inviting prospect… indeed, for many Galicians it wasn’t an inviting prospect (after all, Svoboda only got 38 percent of the vote in the Lvovshchina) either.

Russia made it clear… “Rally to Russia… we’ll accept you as soldiers, see that you get proper pay, and that you get enough to eat” (the junta wasn’t paying or feeding the troops, believe it or not). Trust me, the troops in the Crimea were normal sorts… they rallied to Russia. Now, what happened to those guys? Well, Admiral Berezovsky, the former commander of the Ukrainian Navy is now a deputy commander of the ChF-MF… many of the Berkutovtsy are now in the OMON… it’s apparent that Russians formed up the army soldiers into units under their own ex-Ukrainian officers, intensively trained them to bring them up to Russian standards, and the Russians sent them back home to finish off the junta. No Russian troops will enter any part of the former Ukraine. All of the equipment sent was from former Ukrainian Army stocks… that is, no Russian personnel or equipment has crossed the border in any numbers.

Right now, the Western pastiche is falling apart. What the USA fears is that VVP can entice three of the eastern members of NATO with pieces of the former Ukraine. Poland would get the Lvovshchina as that was Polish under the Second Republic… Hungary wants Podkarpatskaya (sources tell me that locals would rather have that than be under Poland or Slovakia)… Romania eyes Bukovina. The former Ukrainian Army personnel now serving in the VSN are superior to the ragtag junta forces… they’re long-service troops… most of the junta forces are now pressed men, Euromaidantsy terrorists, or prisoners released to wreck mayhem on the civilian population (there are some foreign PMC mercenaries, but probably less than a thousand all told). Furthermore, their “officers” mostly lack professional military educations. They’re as untrained as their men are! There’s no notional “Russian invasion”… there are professional troops waxing the asses of half-assed volunteers. After all, there’s been two purges of the officer corps by the junta (another fact not reported in the Western media)… no army does well after such an exercise.

Note well that the VSN withdrew from some exposed positions without combat… that’s what pros do after they capture a large swath of territory. What they didn’t secure, they fell back from, so as not to expose themselves unnecessarily to counterattacks. The purpose of the VSN is to destroy the enemy… the junta wants to seize territory and terrorise civilians. You can see which one is the army and which one is the mob. Keep all the above in mind as you read the increasingly fictive accounts in the Western press. The prewar Ukrainian Army still exists… in the patriot ranks of the VSN. It’s the only way that decent normal people can rid themselves of the Galician Uniate fascist thugocracy in Kiev. Keep it focused, for the times are evil.
