Russian Security Council (i.e. Senate) Secretary Nikolay Patrushev has publicly stated that it's not fundamentally Ukraine that Russia is at war with, but that the Russian military is facing all of NATO inside Ukraine.
"The events in Ukraine aren’t a clash between Moscow and Kiev. It’s a military confrontation of NATO, first of all the US and Britain, with Russia.
Fearing a direct engagement, NATO instructors push Ukrainian men to certain death," he said in a fresh interview with state-owned newspaper aif.ru.
People in the collective West do not seem to understand the implications of Russian political officials repeatedly stating "Russia is at war with all of NATO." The implications are that all of NATO may be attacked.
Those who dismiss such a possibility because they think we have "Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD)" are in error.
Russia has bomb shelters for at least forty million of their people. We in the West, do not.
In Russia's shelters there exists:
- Generators for electricity
- Fuel supplies for those generators
- Communications gear
- Machine tools (for rebuilding society)
In the West . . . we have no shelters and no supplies for them, either.
Russia conducts actual exercises with its people every couple years, so they can know where their nearest shelter is, and GET TO IT when the test drill takes place. We in the West have no such drills . . . because we have no shelters, no food, no water, no medicine and no machine tools in them.
So if the two sides go head to head, Russia comes out alive with sufficient people to rebuild. The West, dies. In case you have any confusion about that, I am talking about YOU. You die. Your family dies. If not from the blasts, then from the fallout or from no food and water, slowly starving to death.
THIS is what the US Government is playing with; YOUR life - as it fans warfare inside Ukraine.
