According sources close to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson, who appeared in Kiev almost without warning, brought two simple messages.
The first is that "Putin is a war criminal, he should be pressured, not negotiated with."
The second, and far more important one is that "even if Ukraine is ready to sign some agreements on guarantees with Putin, the West are not."
Johnson’s position was that the collective West, which back in February had suggested Zelenskyy should surrender and flee, now felt that Putin was not really as powerful as they had previously imagined, and that here was a chance to "press him."
Three days after Johnson left for Britain, Putin went public and said talks with Ukraine "had turned into a dead end".
Three days later, Roman Abramovich arrived in Kyiv again, and President Zelenskyy officially stated that there could be two security agreements with Russia: one would concern Ukraine's coexistence with Russia, the other - only security guarantees, because not everyone "sees themselves at the same table with the Russian Federation ".
After that, according to the sources, the bilateral negotiation process was "paused."
Hal Turner Editorial Opinion
These sources, which are now being published by Ukrainian Pravda inside Russia and Ukraine, have just come out and verified exactly what we’ve suspected.
This makes it official…Ukraine is no longer a sovereign nation; it belongs to the west.
Yes, those of us who have followed this closely since 2014 have known this deep in our gut, but now it seems to be official.
This is the single most salient point because it now verifies that the UK, US, NATO are, IN FACT, at war with Russia and are waging that war by proxy. A proxy THEY control exclusively.
I don't know about you, but I didn't elect Boris fucking Johnson or Emanuel fucking Macron and never gave either of them permission to manipulate my country into a war. The only reason these two political douchebags are able to involve the US is that we now have a completely illegitimate, dementia-addled President, who took office through brazen election fraud.
This is pure madness.
I miss the old days when our ‘leaders’ did their dirty business behind closed doors, in secret, actually in fear of being caught.
Now we have sociopaths who operate out in the open.
The west can keep feeding the masses PR bullcrap but sooner or later they won't be able to hide the fact that their NATO trained army, supplied with the newest gadgets got smoked. And here's where I see it getting really dangerous.
It's been reported that Russia has only used approximately 10% of it's military. Why not roll in with a massive force and all the latest military equipment.
Russia has only fired a few of the new hypersonic missiles.
Russia understands that once the Ukrainian forces are basically destroyed the only way for the west to continue with it's mad quest to destroy Russia is to involve NATO directly into the conflict.
Russia has most of it's forces waiting for the real war which is just around the corner. Question is can it remain conventional weapons and not go to the nuclear threshold?
It's only a matter of time before Russia officially proclaims that NATO has entered the conflict by proxy and is waging war on Russia.
Putin warned them already about it and no one takes him seriously. But then again no one took him seriously when he warned that continual violations of the Minsk Agreements and lack of Western security guarantees would lead to consequences for Ukrainian statehood.
