All Russian TV outlets have been told to drop everything and broadcast a speech by President Vladimir Putin, live, on 21st February. The speech is to the Russian Federation Assembly. Sources tell me this could be "it."
TV stations have been told to expect the speech to last about an hour. I am also told all radio stations in Russia are to carry the speech live. This seems unprecedented.
Between this and Ukraine's Foreign Minister Kuleba boasting that "something is going to take place on February 23 and 24 that Russia will not like, it will affect the whole world" it is appearing more and more likely that the crap is going to get real for all of us; maybe the formal outbreak of WW3.
Today, Russia called for an extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council over US destruction of Nord Stream pipe line.
The Russians will get nothing out of the US-controlled UN other than obstruction.
This afternoon in Russia, Deputy Chairman of the State Duma, a guy named Tolstoy, announced new denunciations of international treaties by Russia: "There is no possibility and no desire to work with the Europeans on any issues."
Yesterday, this web site reported Covert Intel that Norwegian Intelligence Services reported, for the first time since the Cold War, Russia has started deploying tactical nuclear weapons to their Northern Fleet warships.
Today, it came out that The U.S military ordered depleted uranium (DU) munitions designed for the Abrams tanks that Biden is sending to Ukraine. DU caused cancer and birth defects in Iraq, Afghanistan, and former Yugoslavia. Russia considers these to be a “dirty bomb” and, as reported by this web site weeks ago, Russia will respond to being hit with a "dirty nuclear bomb" exactly the way anyone would expect them to -- with nukes.
Right now Nukes and their delivery systems -- Ships/Subs/Mobile Launcher Trucks are on the move everywhere.
Global tension is off the scale.
Putin's speech on 21st February might be simultaneous with the Nukes being launched. In my gut, I pesonally believe (and this is only my personal view) I'd expect Putin to give the West an Ultimatum and a date. After that a State of War will exist with the West...
I bet all those Russian ships that sailed out of port have attack orders. Once the go signal is sent, they will unleash their nuclear missiles...
We are so close.
He may announce that Russia will in the future interdict war supplies being sent to Ukraine. This could involve the seizure of ships.
He may announce that Russia now regards certain countries as being co belligerents with Ukraine, and that Russia may strike at weapons and training facilities in Europe. This is extreme though.
My money is that this is about Nordstream and the US. He may try to peel apart the US and some European countries. Then join forces with China saying there will be no peace treaty until Russia wins Ukraine and China wins Taiwan.
Russia doesn't want to face Nato. It's a losing situation. But if he can divide NATO over Nordstream and if he can ally with China he might go for it.
Nukes are reserved for when you've lost. But even then you don't use them. You insist that even in defeat you retain the reins of your country, your country retains it's sovereignty or you're going to launch your nukes. This is damned believable and anybody will settle for that.
Make preparations. Food, water, medicines, generator with fuel, communications gear, a plan for the family that everyone knows by heart where to meet, how to get there, what to do if some don't make it.
If you can, try to avoid being around high risk targets.
