THIS IS OPERATION Z
Operation Z is the Russian operation to denazify Ukraine and the penultimate challenge to the elites of the western world. It comprises the first of two chapters of operation whereby Russia demonstrates it is no longer afraid of anything the western world can do to it. Within this chapter Russia will show beyond any doubt that the western powers do not have any inalienable right to control all nations of this planet within their patrician grasp and that proud sovereign nations were never going to submit to their unipolar dictatorship.
These moments of struggle were virtually inevitable from the first verbal assaults on Russia’s president after his Munich speech of 2007 and which became ever more frequent as the entire range of western political and media elites waged an every more aggressive war again him and the nation he represented.
Operation Z was initiated as the last straws were placed on the camel’s back so to speak. The president and those representing Russia delayed its inevitability to the very last moment hoping against hope that it would not be required of them. They went the last mile with the openly aggressive western powers to find an equitable solution which granted them their simple request, that Russia too should have some guarantee of national security, that it not have to live with the threat of western troops and weaponry on its border.
No such agreement as that described above was afforded Russia. The only agreement among the western allies was that Russia must be contained and that every nation, even all those on Russia’s borders including both Georgia and Ukraine had a right to join NATO. The very same NATO that had destroyed two earlier nations and viciously attacked a third, these being Libya, Yugoslavia and Serbia. Yet Russia was asked to believe NATO was a harmless organisation only intent on the defence of Europe. This was to be taken on faith by Russia in similar fashion to the assurances Mikhail Gorbachev was given in the late Nineties that NATO would not move an inch toward the then Soviet Union if he agreed to allow for the peaceful reunion of east Germany with west. How could the Russian president and his representatives possibly countenance a second such leap of faith?
The western powers ‘brought on’ Operation Z with everything they did seeking constantly to keep Russia vulnerable as they drew their plans against her. The solution to the problem for both Ukraine and Russia of the two new republics within eastern Ukraine was resolved at Minsk in 2015, the Ukrainian authorities agreed to hold direct talks with the leaders of the republics and also pass a law giving the republics special status whereby they would have a high degree of autonomy, all the people there had ever wanted. Neither of these promises were kept and remained unkept for the past seven years.
What was Russia to do? Ukraine steadily began arming itself, clearly by the increasing level of bellicose rhetoric to engage in a military attack on both Crimea and the two republics. The western powers were sending weapons in support of this project and ultimately the Ukrainian president began talking of Ukraine regaining its nuclear power status. All a red rag to a bull as the saying goes. How was Russia SUPPOSED to respond to this mounting danger on its doorstep? NATO refused to specifically state once and for all that Ukraine would not gain membership, a key Russian demand.
Meanwhile, during the eight years since the forming of the two republics the threat from the neo-Nazi and ultra-nationalist groups within western Ukraine grew and grew. Many who had been the most violent on Maidan Square in Kiev in the winter of 2013-14 had now joined the Ukrainian Army, thousands of others gained access to weapons and grew their numbers substantially. Together they represented the force of veto against any movement of the Ukrainian president and government toward peace in respect of the republics or Russia. The president, elected on a promise of bringing peace morphed before a year of his presidency had passed into the exact opposite, a man presiding over a war economy who actively spoke of war supported and never criticised in this by the western powers who had also failed totally to encourage him toward implementing the Minsk Agreements and a peaceful resolution for the situation involving the two republics and therefore Russia.
The Russian president had denied the two republics the right to join the Russian Federation insisting they remain part of Ukraine and agreeing that they would have their desires to save their language, culture and allegiances safeguarded by the Minsk Agreements. Now the Ukrainian president and his people were saying that these agreements were invalid and that they would not recognise them. What course of action was left as they took this step of announcing that for them the Minsk Agreements were dead? Clearly only the military option. The Minsk Agreements had been accepted by all parties and then ratified unanimously at the United Nations. Now the Ukrainian authorities had decided the only route to peace available? That could only mean war, a full scale military attack on the republics and Crimea with the help of their western allies. This could only be a matter of time.
It was the last straw that broke the veritable camel’s back. Russian intelligence discovered that this attack had become imminent and was due to take place on February 23rd.
From Russell Bentley, a Texan who has lived in the south-eastern city of Donetsk for the past eight years:
‘The Ukrainian Army, under US/NATO orders, were to attack the Republics on February 23rd (which is a BIG Russian national holiday, The Day of the Defenders of the Fatherland, commemorating the Heroes of the Red Army who smashed the nazi armies in WW2). The attack was planned to include a massive artillery and rocket bombardment of military and civilian targets in the major Donbass cities, followed by a no-holds-barred combined arms assault directly into the densely populated city centres, where the human shields tactic now being used in all other Ukrainian cities would have been used on a massive scale, not as just a tactic, but as one of the strategic elements of the overall attack, while simultaneously carrying out world war two style genocidal "cleansing" of the Russian population by the very nazi battalions that Western media now denies even exist.’
This was the final spur and call to action for the Russian president and for all Russia to react as had been anticipated but had been held back on still with the hope that the peace could still be won. This final indicator that all hope was lost initiated the present operation to transform the nation of Ukraine once more into a normal state having normal relations with its neighbours and a normally functioning political system where reason and not warfare was its focus.
This is Operation Z.
