WHAT WILL BE THE RESULT OF THE WEST MAKING RUSSIANS MISERABLE?
Western political elites have decided there must be collective guilt in regard to Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine. Russians are to be relentlessly punished, robbed and denied everything possible.
One of the first exclusions of Russians was to deny entry to the Paralympic Games to the physically disabled Russians who had been training for years to attend and compete.
After this the exclusions came thick and fast, and the daylight robberies with them. Suddenly Russian assets of all kinds became fair game for taking from them… and the reason? Simply that they belonged to Russians. And it was not just the yachts of rich Russians that went, around three hundred thousand million, three hundred billion in cash was simply stolen. By the so “correct” western elites who swear by international law and pose as virtual saints and noble guardians of their beloved ‘international rules-based order’.
What wonderful rules these must be, don’t you think?
If you happen to be a Russian, perhaps a businessman trading in foodstuffs, maybe caviar, and had built your business up over decades, perhaps even a lifetime, well, sorry pal, what you had by way of assets and cash, that’s ours now. Tough luck.
All kinds of cultural activities were denied to you if you were Russian. One notable event, something concerning a ‘Best Tree Competition’ or some such fell foul of this global persecution project. Some glorious Russian tree was entered. No, sorry Sir, it’s Russian, we can’t have that here. We’re just obeying the rules, sorry. Your tree conspired against poor little Ukraine as you clearly did as you are Russian. You ARE Russian aren’t you Sir? Very well, the exit door is right there.
This process was repeated all across Europe and in the USA. That little shop that had been selling Russian products for decades, supplying those with a Russian heritage stretching ‘way back… well, it was pronounced guilty of being very obviously Russian. It had to go.
A similar situation, though not as extreme, occurred when France stood alongside Russia and China at the UN in opposition to plans to attack and invade Iraq due to its “obvious” possession of weapons of mass destruction. ‘French Fries’ overnight became ‘Freedom Fries’ and the American leadership began to talk of ‘Old Europe’ not being up with the times in supremely condescending terms.
But the pogrom against all things Russian is of course far worse than anything seen since the medieval persecution of the Jews that took place time and time again across medieval Europe and of course more recently during world war two.
Waging war against an entire people has one very definite result as can be seen in the example above of the Jews. It draws those being attacked together in order to better defend themselves. They tend to then arm themselves as effectively as possible against the attacks against them. In addition they rally round their leaders and specifically their national leader. Vladimir Putin’s support within Russia has recently soared from something around 59% to 83% currently. Naturally a certain small number of Russians, generally those who have had most contact financially or some other prestige-gaining connection with the West, are unhappy with him and berate him for his actions in Ukraine. I suspect they are viewed largely with scorn by the average Russian as people who care so much more for their own interests than for the security of their nation and the Russian people.
Overall, the effect of the U.S. and European attacks on Russian culture, Russian assets, history and most prominently on the Russian people themselves, has been to unite Russians and to encourage them to gird their loins ready for the fight of their lifetimes.
The West may have become 300 billion in cash better off after its Russian heist and may feel proudly self-satisfied at having hit as many Russians as hard as they could in their pockets, denying their Paralympic contenders the right to compete and cutting all cultural ties they could find to Russia… but as they say, pride goes before a fall. And western Europeans in particular look certain to be about to fall heavily.
The Russian economy is far stronger than western politicians gave it credit for. And Vladimir Putin’s advisers are clearly a helluva lot smarter than they gave them credit for also. Of course it was well known that Vladimir Putin was no slouch when it came to tactical matters. And so, Russia’s response to the West’s financial and economic attacks, designed to bring Russia’s currency crashing down along with its economy, further hurting Russians, was soon seen to be rather effective.
Due to the various changes made by Putin in coordination with his advisers the ruble is now at a three-year high against the dollar. Not quite the result Mr Biden and his own advisers sought… far from it. In addition, despite prices having risen significantly along with inflation in Russia, no huge emergency ensued, new policies were applied in regard to a replacement to the SWIFT financial system, rubles were to be used to pay for the European consumption of gas and many more changes that strengthened Russia resistance to attack.
Prices in Russia have now largely stabilised and I hear in many cases have begun to fall. Products that used to be sources in Europe or the USA have begun to be replaced using other sources in friendlier nations such as India or China, others yet again are beginning to be replaced by Russian entrepreneurs seeing a niche opportunity for themselves. And Russia now has a law allowing the appropriation of some 600 billion dollar’s worth of western assets abandoned by the major companies and mega-corporation who left the country.
The western pogrom against Russia and the Russian people is a double-edged sword as you can see. While Russia is virtually united and has a plan for recovery and ever-increased invulnerability to further western attack that appears to be working, western populations are in an increasing economic crisis their elites seem unable to devise any cogent way out of.
As the West descends down an economic plughole the indications are that Russia, along with her allies China, India and many others will do just fine thank you.
These are just some of the consequences regarding…
