The Truth About the Ukraine

Russian Troops in Crimea 2014

As the media and international leaders point their fingers at Vladimir Putin for the current situation in the Ukraine, I thought I would take us on a trip down Memory Lane. I’m no fan of Putin or Russia, but the truth needs to be told.

First, let’s remember that Barack Obama famously said he’d like a third term where he hid in the shadows and controlled the actual President. First, that should have sent a shudder down our collective spines as the very thought of a Shadow President is anathema to the “Democracy” that they keep saying is “under attack”. It sure is.

Look at the current Administration and see how many Obama staffers are in it, from Jen Psaki to Joe Biden. Most important, though, is VICTORIA NULAND. She is currently the Under-Secretary of State for Political Affair, and under Obama she was the Assistant Secretary of State for Eurasian Affairs.

And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

John 8:32

I studied the Ukrainian Revolution in detail for my books, because it was the basis of my “72 Hour Theory”, where life can go from normal to a full collapse in 72 hours, as it did in the Ukraine in February of 2014.

Leading much of this was a group called Right Sektor, which I maintain was ANTIFA, yet when evidence of atrocities committed during the revolution came out, magically the media re-branded them as, you guessed it, right-wing nationalists and fascists. It’s important to note that they were ALLIED with the left-wing socialist movements that won the revolution and were the street fighters battling with police. You are free to disagree with me on the ANTIFA claim, but here is their flag:

Flag of Right Sector.svg
Sure looks familiar…

Now, who fomented the crisis that led to the revolution? Many years ago, NATO, the EU, and Russia all signed a treaty that guaranteed that all parties would not influence the Ukraine, and that the Ukraine would remain politically independent. The MSM and UN would have you believe that the annexation of Crimea was Russia violating that agreement.

BUT: The Ukraine had already been given a Membership Action Plan to join NATO, along with Georgia, which violated that prior agreement. Russia no longer felt bound. Russia invaded Georgia over their NATO ascension plans in 2008.

Leaked audio has revealed that none other than Victoria Nuland was involved in the revolution that toppled democratically elected President Yanukovych. She is heard discussing replacing him with Yatsenyuk, whom she refers to as “YATS”, implying a close relationship. Who was President in 2014? Who is likely the ACTUAL President today?

We already knew that the Ukrainian Revolution was a Barack Obama-led “color revolution” that they bragged about, but the question is, “Why did Yanukovych have to go?”. Despite the media singing the nebulous term “corruption” and “ties to Russia”, the TRUTH is that he refused to sign an EU membership treaty, but he had a legal basis. The Ukrainian Parliament, in compliance with previous treaty about Ukraine remaining politically independent, needed to pass new legislation authorizing the President to sign such a treaty. When they didn’t, he refused to sign it and the revolution began.

Make no mistake, it was a violent coup, planned, funded, and directed by the United States. No big deal, we do it all the time. The side we wanted won, right? Yanukovych was out, right? WRONG.

When Russian forces extracted Yanukovych for his safety as Right Sektor was taking over the Capitol, The Parliament held a vote on removing Yanukovych from office, since he could no longer fulfill his duties. They needed a 75% vote but DID NOT get it. The US & UN still recognized Yatsenyuk as the new Interim President, despite the fact that Yanukovych had not been properly removed from office.

We call that a coup when other countries do it. When we do it, we call it the “will of the people”.

But surely, Russia did indeed steal the Crimea, right? Wrong again.

On Feb 4th, 2014, weeks before the revolution even happened, the Crimean Parliament voted to hold a referendum on Crimean independence. I know, you’re thinking, “But the media said Putin arranged it”. He did NOT. He actually said that he would provide security, as REQUESTED by the Crimean Parliament and the STILL SITTING President, Yanukovych, and that he would let the people decide.

Yes, Russia moved forces into Crimea. However, there was a standing agreement that Russia could have forces inside Crimea because the Russian Black Sea fleet and her two Naval Infantry (Marine) Brigades were based there. As the security situation deteriorated, they moved in more troops, but with the LEGAL President’s authority.

Now, I’m not advocating for either side, because I don’t have a dog in this fight, but these are all facts, and they are undisputed. Feel free to do your own research, and you will find these facts. The issue is media malfeasance.

But what does this mean for preparedness? Well, it means that you need to be ready within the next 30 days (75 days max) for a European land war. Russia has demanded that the EU and NATO rescind their membership offers to Ukraine, in compliance with their prior treaty, and Joe Biden has demanded that Russia withdraw from Crimea.

Neither of those things is going to happen. Russia has amassed a massive force on the border. Just days ago, field hospital units and air-medical transports arrived in the area. Those would not be needed for training. The OSCE is reporting GPS and radio jamming, and Russian tanks appear to have been modified for combat operations.

So far, Sweden (of all places) and the UK have already committed actual troops to defend the Ukraine. It is likely that Poland and the Baltic States would also. This would expand the front, because Belarus, as a Russian client-state, would likely interdict Baltic troop deployments, and you would soon have fighting from the Black Sea to the Baltic Sea.

For us, first, this would mean potential cyber-attacks on our grid and communication systems to prevent the US from supporting the Ukrainian side. While Russia would not likely directly attack our forces, hacking would be widespread.

You need to have alternate communications plans in place now. Understand that grid or communications disruptions also mean that you likely can’t get gas out of underground tanks and if you can, you likely can’t use your debit card to pay, so keep your cars full and carry a little extra cash.

Have a get home bag fully stocked and ready. Now is a good time to double check and re-stock it, along with your first aid kits. If you don’t know how to build a Get-Home Bag, my Baseline Training Manual has a step-by-step guide. Amazon can get it to you in a day or two, or you can order signed copies on this site.

As it is wintertime, keep a blanket or extra clothing layers in your car in case you get stranded if any disruptions occur. A sleeping bag or the good old “woobie” poncho liner is a great option. I also keep a single person, low profile backapcking tent in my trunk.

Make sure that you have some type of battery-operated radio that can receive broadcast AM/FM and shortwave/amateur radio (see below). Even if the internet is down, commercial radio may still be up, and amateur radio stations will be broadcasting what information they have.

Keep in mind also that if the rest of the Western world is suddenly occupied with a shooting war in northern Europe, Comrade Xi and his merry men will see that as the most perfect time to seize Taiwan, and they also would begin that operation with communications and grid attacks on us, to prevent us coming to Taiwan’s aid.

Cyber War is a reality we must contend with. A hack on the grid is just as deadly as an EMP, and far more likely. As I said before, don’t prepare for events, prepare for the effects of the event. It doesn’t matter why the lights went out, just that you were prepared to deal with it.

Later this week, we will discuss how to prepare to deal with loved ones who may be in an assisted living or long-term care facility. If the power goes out, you may need to rescue them.

    1. This isn’t Afghanistan. Russia has always fought best in winter and with combat vehicles using JP5 and JP8 fuel issues are gone. It’s a few hours crossing the Strait. China will only move if Russia does.

  2. Thank you for the good insight, brother. In light of cyber attack concerns, may I recommend to everyone to consider using Tor Network and being familiar with Tails OS ? Tails OS: Most importantly, I would highly recommend digital preparedness and making it part of our over all preparedness.

  3. Russia hit the NATO-trained Georgia soldiers in 2008 because ethnic Russian civilians and Russian soldiers were attacked in South Ossetia by RoG units at night as they slept. The RoG attackers later broke and ran as the main Russian came in force to re-establish the agreed upon UN buffer zone.

    The claim above that China is coordinating activities against Ukraine is not backed up with any proof and is rather absurd on its face.

    1. I don’t know that they are corridnating necessarily, but I doubt they would have a better opportunity.

      If China did; the disruption to the semiconductor and fastener markets alone would be destructive.


  4. Grist for your claim that ANTIFA were the shock troops fomenting dissent and instability in Ukraine is just one level up from Biden and 0bama. That is their puppeteer Soros. Antifa is Soros shock troops and he uses them across Europe and CONUS.

    Tactics aren’t the only thing they have in common. The source of funding is the same. And that’s probably why the song remains the same.

    Ukraine was the hub from which Soros’ corruption network for Eastern Europe was run out of. It’s why the oligarchs and Deep State went into panic mode when Trump said he’d root around there.

    And for the extra happy sauce at the end, let’s recall where our transformers were made – that’s right, in China. I’ve heard, can’t provide links for the hearsay, that chips have been found in our transformers that give the CCP a backdoor kill switch. It’s not just SCADA systems in danger but actual hard infrastructure as well.

    It’s the oligarchs done sold us down the river. fedguv is just a puppet.

    1. Yes, you nailed it. This will be a war on behalf of Soros. All one has to do is watch his talks at the Open Society, in particular the NY chapter. He’s rather blunt about it. And why has he been allowed to hijack our military and state department? And our southern border is open for his plan also.


  5. Excellent run-down of the whole Crimea/Ukraine issue. Too bad most people forget even the most recent history while stuffing Big Macs in their faces. As the situation develops there and Taiwan, look for our own government to go full totalitarian; martial law, weapons seizure, confiscation of any food you have stored. I’d say Slo Joe and his handler, Chocolate Jesus, are going to have their hands full this winter.

    1. Hey – 2 fun facts. 1st from 2017:

      The Kagans Are Back; Wars to Follow
      March 15, 2017

      2nd, from about 900 AD – the Khazars, aka Ashkanazi, descendants of Japheth, adopt judaism in Khazaria – the ruling class of Khazari of which King Bulan was a member, were called “Kagans”.

      Due to the Ashkanazi parasitism of surrounding peoples they were booted out of the area, and STILL continue to attempt to retake it. As above.


  6. Not exactly accurate wrote up as to what happened.
    Let’s rewind to before Maidan.
    Russia offered Ukraine a trade deal.
    EU offered one as well. Ukraine wanted to sign both deals. Russia was fine with that but EU was not. EU basically told Ukraine to pick the EU or Russia. Ukraine picked Russia (I am sure that discounts on natural gas and $3b loan had a lot to do with it).
    NATO intelligence agencies and Soro’s NGOs activate their color revolution plans.
    Yes, Yanukovich was corrupt so normal people protested too.

    Right Sector was always neo-Nazi, not Antifa. Their banner proves that not alignment to Antifa. Their hero is a guy named Bandera. He was a Nazi sympathizer whose gangs after the war were murdering anyone not Ukrainian in current Western Ukraine and Eastern Poland.


  7. JD,

    You and others here may find this essay by Mike King, author of “The BAD War – The Truth NEVER Taught About World War 2” very insightful about the relationship that has historically existed between Russia and Ukraine.

    The Globalist Rape of Ukraine – Mike King

    Hope that helps clear up any false knowledge, especially that which HAS
    been created by the Globalists to indoctrinate and deceive people about
    their actions and goals.

      1. How to understand Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine? To what does this unilateral action compare? Turkey’s invasion of Cyprus in 1974… A more ancient act of imperialism, the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland took place during the late 12th century.
        The latter example not now nearly as pertinent as the former. The issue at stake, centers not upon Russian interests to keep the Ukraine out of joining NATO, but rather the disgrace of UN hypocrisy and its silence to denounce and condemn this latest invasion by countries who dream, think France, that they should merit the status as a ‘Great Power’ in Europe.

        The UN repeats and perpetuates this continuous drip-cowardice; the UN condemns repeatedly ad infinitum the Jewish State of Israel. Yet when China pulls shtik with the Uyghurs of Xinjiang, likewise comparable to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, UN piety immediately loses its religion. Therefore, it seems to me that Nations should respond to UN hypocrisy by withdrawing membership from this House of Cards club.

        The Russia\China axis thrived during the Stalin\Mao era. China faces a similar fuel crisis as did Japan during WWII. Formosa and the Japanese Islands make control of the ocean quite formidable. Therefore China would very much like to conquer Taiwan. For China to fight and win a war that would most probably trigger multi-national involvement, it requires a secure ally which can supply it with oil and gas. Russia fits that need to a tee. Mao rejected Khrushchev’s denunciation of Stalin’s war crimes. That’s when Sino–Russian relations turns south.

        Russia, even after the fall of the USSR, remains the odd man out among Nato dominated Western European governments. The West, currently jabbering about sanctions blah blah. The Art of War centers upon crippling the supply lines of the enemy. A failure which defines the defeat of US imperialist invasions in both Vietnam and Afghanistan. Those supply lines represent the underbelly of the beast. Quite naturally all belligerent nations understand this critical weakness. A Sino-Russian alliance make tremendous good strategic sense for a new Cold War Russia.


  8. War seems very unlikely. What I think we are seeing is the desperate media push for war by people who don’t have the power to initiate war. If a war was planned by those with the ability to initiate war, we’d be seeing justifications rather than attempts to incite someone to do something. Remember that Biden Inc withdrew from the very profitable A’stan debacle in order to benefit himself and the chinee at the expense of the MIC and CIA.


  9. NOTHING Obama did was his idea. He was the quintessential puppet….until Pedo Joe was installed. His direct puppet master was Iranian born Valerie Jarrett who was acting under the direction of shadow criminals like George Soros. While Jarrett isn’t pulling Biden’s strings those directing him are still answering to the same criminals including Soros. All the shadow criminals would love for the gullible to believe that everything is Obama’s and Biden’s idea so they can stay safe behind the scenes. Don’t make that mistake. The elected puppets are evil puppets…. willing puppets, but they ARE just puppets.

    1. Dan,

      Follow the ‘financial breadcrumbs’.

      ALL the tracks lead back to “The City of London” and the Rothschild family, for which it stands.

      The late Harold Wallace Rosenthal in his interview in 1976, a month or two before he was assassinated by Mossad agents in Istanbul, Turkey disguised as Arab highjackers said,
      “You Americans haven’t chosen your President since 1945; FDR was our man as has been everyone since.”

      The Jews control the Kabuki Uniparty political Theater in America at the top level; of course O’homo and Slo Joe are their puppets…with few exceptions every senator, congressman and supreme court judge are nothing more than their corporate is the fbi, cia, etc.

      They’re the true ‘Deepstate/Citadel’ and have been ever since their successfull financial coup in 1913.

      And they hate Christians and Christian Russia with every fiber of their being…remember what Aleksander Solzhenitzen said, “The Russian Revolutionaries in 1917 WEREN’T Russians, they hated Russian Christians!..” (emphasis mine).

      Hope that helps put things into better clarity.

      1. I asked my Christian friend from Kazakhstan of their society attitude toward Christians. The wife of my friend responded, “there is no mercy in generals towards others. Hostile and hatred in general to each other and Christians” It left me with the image from the Bible, their hearts were hardened by communism.

  10. in 2014 USA, I don’t recall. sos….how much hacking from overseas combatants did we get? and other attacks our grid. Is all in an effort to, as u say, be prepared for the effects of the event(s).
    Ive been prepping since my return from middle east in the late 80s.


  11. Inevitably once the great reset trumdles into its final stages the other big players will decide there can only be one (themselves) and the reset(s) will be off to the races. They’re just waiting for the odds to be in their favor on elements we aren’t privy too. Until then the build ups, rhetoric, saber rattling and other shanegans will continue. Until they don’t. The first seal will probably be opened in the next few months; at least we know how it ends and can plan accordingly.


  12. Excellent Write-up, JD- Very few have pointed out the REAL culprits (and their Owners) in the whole Ukraine ‘issue’.
    Most articles, whether by shills for the ‘uniparty’ or independents, usually refer to ‘Russian Interference’ in the Ukraine, and ‘Russian Annexation’ of Crimea. Both are False, and I stop reading any article as soon as those terms are used. The (((nuland-kagan))) Coup against the Elected Government in the Ukraine is also generally Ignored by most writers as well.

    This entire situation has the weird look of Ignorance of History, by the Warmongers and their (((financiers))) as to how many Times the most powerful Armies in Europe go into Russia through the Ukraine, and have their Asses handed to them. These same Morons also seem to be Unaware that Russia is no longer their own Puppet, ‘soviet’ regime, but is now a Rebuilt, Heavily-Armed, mostly White Christian Nation that Knows its History of being Invaded and Trashed by European Powers. You can look up the official Defense Policy of the Russian Federation (the unclassified version) and in a nutshell it says “Nobody will Invade Russia, ever Again, the Bear has Nuclear Weapons”. And Tactical Nukes are just that- Tactical, and the President doesn’t have to Give Orders to “Release” them if a Division-Level Commander has Enemy Tanks rolling the Border in his AO..

    I agree with you that this Situation could very well “Get out of Control” Very Fast, if the stupid and desperate ‘western’ Regime actually thinks (or pretends) that Russia will back down for even a partial ‘Invasion’ of the Ukraine-
    Remember, Kiev was the original Capitol of Russia (after they drove out the khazarian mafia) and later, they moved the Capitol to Moscow, so Invading Europeans could experience a lot more Russian Hospitality before “General Winter” went into action.

    From a Tactical standpoint, I would expect (as per Doctrine) anything they see as an “Invasion” will be met with a Crushing Blitzkrieg from the 100,000+ Troops already deployed on the Russian/Ukraine Border. Kiev will be Taken within 24-36 Hours, and any NATO Troops that aren’t Dead will be Surrounded and Cut Off completely.

    Strategically, I rather doubt that Russia will “Go Nuclear” first, or even second- they have Excellent EW/Cyber Forces, and as you mentioned, they could Deploy “General Winter” to the CONUS by taking out some or all of the Electrical Grid. At that point, it would be completely Irrelevant if the .Mil and “Continuity of government” sites still had the Lights on.


    1. Since the invasions by both Napoleon and the Nazis the Russian military has developed a strategic defense doctrine known as defense in-depth. Attempts by NATO to have the Ukraine join the Western alliance against Russia, this hostile policy has directly threatened that Russian strategic military doctrine. This Russian military doctrine, it directly compares to the early US Foreign Policy known as “the Monroe Doctrine”.

      Russian Strategic Interests, the decision to invade the Ukraine.

      How does Russia view the Ukraine? The trauma of WWII, it not only impacts Jews and Israelis living today, especially after the 1960 Eichmann trial. Only 2 armies fought a head to head war in Europe between 1941 to 1944. The Nazi invasion of Russia, the Angel of Death devoured some 27 million casualties.

      Napoleon said: “An Army marches on its stomach”. This pithy comprehension of War, it understands that an Army cut off from its supply lines, like as happened to the Nazi 6th Army at Stalingrad, that Army – immediately confronted by disgrace, surrender, and defeat.

      Russia has survived two major invasions by Western powerhouse States: first Napoleon followed by Hitler. In both Russian victories, the long supply lines of the invading Armies proved itself as the “Achilles’ heel” for both invaders. Should the Ukraine join NATO, another Western powerhouse Army sits right on the borders of Mother Russia. Poland has already joined the NATO Alliance.

  13. On one side we have the reckless Nuland gang unleashed by a senile Biden desperate for a Putin narrative and to cover up his and Hunter’s crimes in Ukraine with a war.

    On the other side we have Russians who are done with this game and signaling that really clearly.

    I see the recipe for a war.


  14. It is astounding to me that at the very moment when Obama spoke those words he was not prosecuted. I am an American living in Belarus for nearly three years, now happy to have fully relocated. I have witnessed more freedom here in this short time than in 50 years living in the US. My family and I fully support Russia, as do all my Russian and Belarusian friends and family. Yes, we also pray for all, especially the US which has gone far too deep into the depths of hell but never too far for our Savior to redeem.
