AUDIO: Six Months Later – Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine

Riley Waggaman

What’s going on in Ukraine?

In an attempt to (briefly) answer this question, I asked Marko Marjanović and Rolo Slavskiy to Zoom-chat with me for an hour.

Marko is the editor of Anti-Empire.com (now available on Substack) and has written about the Ukraine conflict for this blog.

Rolo is a writer, commentator and Russian patriot who writes in English and podcasts in Russian. You can follow his work at his Substack, The Slavland Chronicles.

They both provide perspectives on the situation in Ukraine that go largely ignored in much of English-language “independent media,” and I am very grateful they took the time to share their views with me. Maybe a Part II is coming?

NOTE: I absolutely butchered the intro (which I cut out to avoid extreme shame and embarrassment), so to avoid any confusion: Rolo is the first to speak after my very brief opening remarks.

In the coming weeks I intend to reach out to other writers and pundits in hopes of assembling a wide range of opinions on the conflict. (After I finish the Q&A series that I barely started.) So stay tuned.

Well, look at that. -Putin has ordered the partial mobilization of the Russian population, including ordering military reservists into active service and a boost to weapons production- -Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu added more detail on the partial mobilization Wednesday morning, saying it would see 300,000 additional personnel called up to serve in the military campaign in Ukraine- One might think that, in addition to justifying the inevitable, painstakingly engineered collapse, and in addition to justifying the deliberate deepening of the created crises and their further expansion (and other things), the “special operation” may have another meaning. So phase 2, for example, could be an even more special operation, of a higher degree.

Simple question. Can anyone point to any actual footage of the alleged “offensive” allegedly taking place in Kherson? Let’s set some definitions for said footage in advance – 1- MORE THAN a dozen active “fighters”. 2 – MORE THAN a couple of tanks or other hardware. 3 – Evidence of widescale engagement with return fire (ie not just a piece of artillery firing at an alleged but invisible “enemy” in an otherwise empty field). 4 – Massed troops on the move and under fire 5 – NO dodgy mini war films of what easily could be a sterile training exercise with creepy “action” music added and some obscure production company logo. – Actual, real, raw video from war photographers or journalists or locals that fits all above criteria.

The last bastion of the narrative: Russia does not tolerate the spread of the ideology of transgenderism. They don’t? Maybe not. This is Tsargrad, a conservative publication that Riley has often quoted. Conservatively, in the sense that he supports the “special operation”, he believes in Putin and that the problems with the creep of the bad part of Western “values” are created by the “fifth column”. Which is also that there is a real war in which Russia and the “inclusive capitalists” are two fighting sides. So they attribute the malign tendencies imposed in Russia to parts of the administration, the government, but not to all, not to the main ones, and definitely not to Putin. What to do, I won’t convince them otherwise.

A Ukrainian attack drone was apparently shot down yesterday [28th August] over building number 1 of the Zaporizhzhya nuclear power plant (Ukraine). Just before the IAEA is set to visit.

If true, then there are forces actively seeking to create another Chernobyl, Fukushima-style disaster. This time not accidentally.

The out-workings of a nihilistic worldview, perhaps. If this ship goes down, then the whole world should go down with it.

Especially since the power station provides a fair chunk of electricity to southern Ukraine. Not only (potentially) shooting oneself in the foot, but everyone else’s feet in the vicinity too.

The lack of German, US or UK participants in the IAEA team is odd (though may be by agreement).

The continuous stream of shells being bombarded at the place is also very disturbing. Some of the recent ones fired from 40km away, I believe.

I suppose my question is what would motivate someone to launch a missile or drone strike on a nuclear plant. What would be going through their mind? It’s a bit like being the one that presses the launch button for a missile in a nuclear war. Watching ‘War Games (1983)‘ should be part of their military training

This article may offer a possible explanation. A Ukrainian desire to bring NATO-poleon in to the equation, by provoking Putin into a strike on decision-making centres

Ukraine has launched a counter-offensive in the Kherson region.

https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2022/08/29/ukraine-war-as-its-happening-a76553

2 HOURS AGO
A Ukrainian counter-offensive to take back Russian captured territory in the country’s south has begun, the head of the Joint Coordination Press Centre of the Defence Forces of Southern Ukraine, Natalia Humeniuk, said Monday.
The announcement comes amid reports of intensive Ukraine shelling of Russian controlled areas around the city of Kherson.
Russia ordered evacuations Monday of people from offices in the occupied town of Nova Kakhovka, Russian state-run news agency RIA Novosti reported.

2 HOURS AGO
The Armed Forces of Ukraine have breached the occupiers’ first line of defence near Kherson. They believe that Ukraine has a real chance to get back its occupied territories, especially considering the very successful use of Western weapons by the Ukrainian army.

The “war” has been created by both “sides” (who are the same side) to further the shift eastward, build Eurasia and decimate US-Europe. Why do you keep promoting the idea there is some real conflict of interest here when there obviously isn’t.

Even if the “war” is being performed to the extent of actually killing real people in large numbers (no evidence of it, but I give the benefit of the doubt), it’s still just performative, a war without conflict, done by two sides for one reason.

Brendon plays an official 4th Industrial Revolution video talking about Ukraine in 2030 – as a leading digital country in the SMART CITY model. This is also what they have done in parts of Iraq and other places in the Middle East – rebuilding the carnage they have created in the SMART CITY model.

Pepe Escobar says today: “All the Way to Odessa”. “As it stands, what’s remarkable is how the Russian economy hardly broke a sweat to “end the abundance” of the wealthiest region on the planet [while strengthening its own economy and bringing down interest rates]. “Putin has abandoned his long-cherished notion of negotiating with “our partners” in Brussels because there’s nothing to negotiate.

Oh fuck off. Yeah, the sanctions “backfired” just like the twin towers were attacked due to “blowback”. Mealy mouthed gatekeeper bullshit.

The sanctions were intended to do what they are doing, bring down western economies, pave the way for rationing, UBI, mass culls.

Western societies need to be cowed to the point they willingly abandon their traditions of freedom. Eastern societies can be spared a little since they are already cowed, especially in China and already accept restrictions that won’t go over here without some softening up.

What Type of War? There are several aspects to this question, but here I’ll focus on the physical conflict. What surprises me is that Putin walked into the same trap as the Soviets in Afghanistan of 1979. But it’s even more surprising that people still can’t see this as a trap; and they’re still wedded to the notion of refighting WWII. There appears to be no single label for this type of war, but I’ll refer to the initial, trap phase of the conflict as the Brzezinski Playbook. The conflict has since progressed to other phases, and one of the key concepts which distinguish it from traditional thinking is that of “battlespace”. It should be noted that the Putinista fifth-column didn’t wake up to the reality that Russia had fought the wrong war until AFTER the initial phase was largely over. But they don’t appear to have woken up to… Read more »

The fact remains that there remains a strong contingent of degenerates in the West that have been , well shall we say rather pissed off and then some, at Russia and specifically Mr.Putins constant outplaying their interests. These radicals need to be irradiated and for that to happen, the EU needs to dissolve for a period of time and then re-invent itself.

“the EU needs to dissolve for a period of time and then re-invent itself.”

Like Europe re-invented itself after playing at Fascism for 20 years with the active support of Britain and the U$A: “Herr Hitler, Signor Mussolini and General Franco are our bulwarks against Communism”. After Soviet Russia had broken the back of the Nazi Wehrmacht, de-Natzified Eastern Europe all the way from the Ukraina to Poland, and caused Hitler to blow his brains out because the Red Flag was flying over the Reichstag — after Russia had accomplished all this at the cost of “blood, sweat and tears” that Churchill never dreamed of, Europe re-invented itself on a more Socialist model. Those were ‘Les Trentes Annees Glorieuses” between 1945 and the Second Coming of the New World Order under Margaret Snatcher and Ronnie Raygun.

The war in Ukraine is about taking and holding territory . . .

There are several different wars being fought. Russia is attempting to fight a traditional “take and hold territory” war. However, the initial response by Ukraine was largely a stay-behind operation (the Brzezinski Playbook); though augmented with drones and satellite communications. They’ve now mostly switched to precision guided artillery, which has much the same effect as stay-behind, but can be safely operated from well within Ukrainian held territory.

I apologize but that makes no sense. If Russia was taking territory and Ukraine wasn’t defending that territory then the Ruskies would have mopped them up inside the Donbass (sp?) region in a week. Regular armies don’t fight stay behind and you can’t hold territory that way. They would have yielded the territory and split into small fighting groups. This is not what has happened. And I have not seen anyone but you make such a claim, which just makes no military sense. On the contrary the Ukes have held territory with great success, which means they are there in force like the Ruskies.

There are a few bits which Brzezinski gets wrong, such as placing too much emphasis on urban warfare – when the reality in Ukraine is more rural and semi-urban. Other than that, the position with the Trump-Pompeo policy is exactly the same. — Brzezinski (2014): But what kind of weapons is important. And in my view, they should be weapons designed particularly to permit the Ukrainians to engage in effective urban warfare of resistance. There’s no point trying to arm the Ukrainians to take on the Russian army in the open field: thousands of tanks, an army organized for the application of overwhelming force. There is a history to be learned here from urban resistance in World War II and most recently in Chechnya, whose capital persisted for three months in house-to-house fighting.

“Safely operated”? NATZO spent 8 years (2014 to 2022) NATZOfying the Ukrainian Army, supplying it with heavy weapons and building up massive fortifications for its intended “ethnic cleansing” of the Donbass and its Russian-speaking “untermenschen”. It has taken only a very small part of the Russian Army plus its Donbass Allies to destroy most of these initial heavy defenses that NATZO built up in the Ukraine. And half of the new heavy weapons from Biden, Johnson, Macron and Stoltz have been destroyed within a month of their arrival. It took only a very small part of the Russian Army plus allied Ukrainian militia to break Zelenski’s new present of lethal toys from NATZO and defeat the crack neo-Nazi Azov Battalion which Kolomoisky finances (same Ukrainian Oligarch as finances president Zelensky). “I need more guns (and more money) before I ride off to my little old $50Million home in the West,… Read more »

No, we see little of what you saw in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia and “other places we were not supposed to be”; because this is not Yankee “shock and awe” where the grunts have to apologize afterwards:

“Sorry, we bombed until there was nothing left to bomb”.

“Sorry, we had to destroy the place in order to save it”.

“Mission accomplished”.

You can’t play chess with massed infantry, armored vehicles and artillery. No disrespect but that’s hooey. If territory is changing hands then it’s being fought over and that needs a lot of men and hardware clashing head on which is never quiet or pretty.

There is one point here that perhaps makes a difference and that is that the Ukrainian territory being taken is also full of “Ukrainians” that support the effect and hence you only need to thwart off some paramilitary degenerates that were infiltrating the region. Its only recently that the US and UK have insisted that this conflict continue and now it appears the idea is to lob missiles at the territories much like terrorists do. Zelenskyy has relegated his state to a terror state against the people he was supposed to protect… according to his electoral speeches back in the day. He has had to eliminate the political opposition, remove high ranking officials that supposedly gave him headaches meaning they did not believe in his actions against his own people.

I’m trying to wrap my head around Marko’s take …

Russia’s pace is glacial. Russia should have gotten this over quickly. And if Russia had gotten this over quickly Ukrainians would be more sympathetic towards Russia. But if Russia can’t mobilize more than 200k troops, how could it have gotten the war over quickly apart from flattening cities a la the US ? And how would Ukrainians have been more favorably disposed if their cities were flattened ?

I don’t think there is need to flatten cities in order to take significant territory from an army who, as said several months ago, is depleted by 50%! It is a miracle of delaying that Russia is still fighting in Donbas after it being said several times that all Donbas was taken. Even Donetsk is still being shelled! How have they not even taken enough territory to prevent this shelling? Was not the main objective to prevent civilian deaths? This is an increasingly strange war!

Putin does not call it a war. He calls it SMO (Special Military Operation) to de-NATZify Ukraine after the “cookie” coup by Biden and Nuland in 2014, which promoted a special neo-Natzi Azov battalion in the Ukrainian Army.

Russia has not even begun to fight a Real War such as WW2, when Russia de-Natzified East Europe from the Ukraina right up to East Berlin; and we hope that it will not be forced to do so. But Putin has clearly stated his objectives: No NATZO expansion east of Berlin. No NATZO nukes near Russia’s border.

The SMO is merely the first step toward reining in NATZO’s ruthless “drang nach Osten” (Eastern expansion).

Someone asked, “What was Russia supposed to do?”
 
Same as they did for prev 8 years! There’s no evidence Ukraine was really going to join NATO. In fact internal NATO correspondence ruled that out. So that’s a non-starter reason. 

IF Ukraine was planning to roll into Donbass (pretty unlikely) Russia should have bolstered forward defenses with little green men (while keeping deniability) and waited for the assault and responded with quick and overwhelming force to shut it down. – in which case their actions would have been defensive and legitimate in international law – a factor previously very important to Russia but strangely abandoned at the start of this “war”.

In strategic terms Russia’s actions make no sense. Nor do the West’s. The whole thing only makes sense as a mutually agreed fake fight – maybe with collateral civilian damage.

Canadian Bacon – you stated “There’s no evidence Ukraine was really going to join NATO”. However, they didnt need to formally join! In Sept 2021, the US and Ujraine signed an agreement to form a “strategic defense partnership” (https://www.rt.com/russia/533633-military-cooperation-agreement-ukraine-washington/), ratified in Nov 2021 when Ukraine and USA signed the “U.S.-Ukraine Charter on Strategic Partnership” which included enhancing military/defense relationships. See https://www.state.gov/u-s-ukraine-charter-on-strategic-partnership/ They began implementing this in Jan 2022, when Nato effectively brought Ukraine’s military forces into the NATO command/control structure with the “Memorandum of Agreement” which couched the move in terms of “working together on technology-related projects…(and)… share its knowledge of practices in developing capabilities in the Command, Control, Communications and Computers (C4) domain”. See https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/news_190906.htm, https://www.ncia.nato.int/about-us/newsroom/natoukraine-agreement-paves-the-way-for-further-technical-cooperation.html and https://en.defence-ua.com/events/nato_helps_to_improve_command_and_control_system_of_the_armed_forces_of_ukraine-2048.html).

Official military hardware has its own National and unit ID printed on it. The only reason to paint on a makeshift ID would be if the hardware had been decommissioned and had its tags removed.

In other words if it was no longer being officially operated by the Russian army, but had been passed on for scrap or handed on to a non-official outfit for – say – training films or exercises.

That would also explain why all the hardware is so substandard, old fashioned and in such poor condition. No way it was being operated by one of the best equipped armies in the world.

Please don’t make me blush. Undeserved praise for my humble work as a layman.

One to one transcribed from the statements of the WEF made before the “parting with the WEF”. As we can see, they continue in exactly the same direction after the “separation”./ Donald may not be a troll, but he may be using some authentic form of expression, or he may have simply, after watching a whole hour of no response to his comment, picked up emotion and discarded what he had collected in the second comment.

I only skimmed through the article, but found the following: I still find it stunning that, when informed of Kolomoyskyi’s comment that he was a “schizophrenic shorty,” Putin didn’t reply that he was a crook for stealing from Ukrainians, Crimeans, or Russians, but that he was a crook who had “scammed Russian [Jewish] oligarch Roman Abramovich for billions of dollars.” In other words, much of what we are seeing here is not just grand geopolitics and clashing nationalisms, but a subtext of oligarchic feuds. — The source for this statement by Putin is as follows: https://genius.com/Vladimir-putin-press-conference-on-the-situation-in-ukraine-annotated Press conference on the situation in Ukraine President Vladimir Putin of Russia takes questions from the Russian media on March 3, 2014, following Russian military action in Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

It is extremely difficult to know what was taking place in this early situation. There are simply too many players in the game, and journalistic reporting has become bedtime story telling, rather than a reporting of actual events in real time. I think this comment is germane and carries some weight:

“In other words, much of what we are seeing here is not just grand geopolitics and clashing nationalisms, but a subtext of oligarchic feuds.”

The comment could be applied to Serbia, Hungary, Croatia, Greece, Portugal, or any Nation/States where ownership of lands (and resources) becomes contested. All wars are banker’s wars. And Bankers are simply the service agents of the wealthy classes…

Eight years ago I wrote an essay on “Nationalists, Jews, and the Ukrainian Crisis,” during which I expressed some sympathy with historically-rooted Ukrainian nationalism but also accepted that the origins of the nation are contested and extremely complex.

No, the origins of modern Ukraine couldn’t be more straightforward. In 1991 they voted overwhelmingly for independence. That’s the will of the people of Ukraine. However, in Joyce’s TLDR article, he doesn’t even reference the independence vote.

I got the vibe that these guys were feeling pretty shy about speaking too harshly of Putin and Russia in the podcast format. They take a lot of heat for it in the western alt media circles so i guess that’s understandable.

I am familiar with Marko’s articles and they are actually quite scathingly critical of Putin’s decisions throughout the war. It is a very different take on the situation than we get from the western alt media. He is just as cynical about the Russian government as we are about our own.

Would’ve been cool to hear him lean more into those views in the interview, although he is not wrong to think that a wave of confused angry comments will follow if he does so.

Just being on the ground in the middle of a war zone doesn’t provide any special insight into the machinations of the actual political forces responsible for starting the war.

Thousands of soldiers fought in World War 1 and none of them deduced that Cecil Rhodes’ round table group was responsible for controlling all sides of the war from their first hand experiences in combat.

People like Zelensky, Putin, and Biden are simple humans, this isn’t that complicated. Some humans are trying to gain control of other humans for greed and power, same as it’s ever been.

Controlling oil means full-spectrum global dominance.

No oil, no working military. Good luck with your lithium fighter jet.

Hello Edwige: Oil fields were located in the Tonkin Gulf by French geologists’ decades before the Vietnam slaughter. Turns out the crude is heavy crude and extraction, and refining cost was prohibitive. Better to do an “easier deal” and continue buying Saudi lite crude, or perhaps steal more oil from Libya, Iraq, Syria, etc…

Wow Riley your friends are clueless. Putin is an oligarch loyal only to decentralized empire. Nation States are 20th century.

A “multi-polar world” does not an empire make.

Multipolar means the Rockefellers on one end and the Rothschilds at the other, with Wall Street and the CIA in between.

Whatever you call it it’s being set up by WEF, WHO and the bankster class. They WANT “multipolarity” and are pushing for it.

Klaus Schlob and all his young leaders are all over multipolarism. In fact, they invented it. Believe it and get with it!

It is true that I exaggerated the amount of comments, but I still want to add just one more congratulations on the Independence Day of Ukraine, to praise them, trying to highlight some of their uniqueness. The Menorah Center is here in Dnieper. “Menorah” is a unique structure and the largest Jewish complex in the world, which has no analogues in the world. This project reflects the past, present and future of Jewish life in Dnieper.” “donated to the Dnipropetrovsk Jewish community by Gennady Bogolyubov and the president of the United Jewish community of Ukraine Igor Kolomoisky”. A living example that when good people with great ideas come together, wonderful things come true. Look at this beautiful center. https://menorah-center.com/about/ Congratulations on Independence Day and the wonderful song from the roof of the Menorah Center. (Among other things in the song, they sing that Ukraine was their land.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWUzPXMUAFg Khazarkraine is… Read more »

Israel views Ukraine as the “re-birth” of Khazaria.
Or the default location when the shitty little country of anti-Semites self-destructs.

Yes, but also Comrade Vladimir with mother Shalomova starred in the film the destruction and cleansing before build back better the old khaganate, Ernest. I read that you don’t see the Russian bear dance to the tune of WEF, but that may be because he looks like a typical Russian kazachok. But it’s not. You may not want to, but take a closer look at the bear’s movements in its den. It’s not a kazachok.;)

I thought that Israel’s original interests were in Georgia. You’ll recall a small war that was set up some years ago to reclaim some enclaves left over from the USSR. I recall pictures of ‘our boys’ off to fight the Russians. As it happened it didn’t turn out that well. Ukraine would be a tougher nut to crack. We in the West don’t appreciate just how big the place is (placed on the US it would stretch from St. Louis to Boston — Its BIG) or how diverse it is. Its been peddling a nationalist identity since 1991 and especially since 2014 but however you dice or slice it you’ve got a rift down the middle between the Catholic (Polish/Hungarian) West and the Orthodox (Russian) east. Its been there through history. Minsk was a reflection of reality and is likely to be implemented one way or another — instead of… Read more »

Something fun, or stupid (depending on views) in relation to the “climate crisis” and the “transition to green energy”, the pressure for which “accelerated” “because of the war”, and other ideological narrative. Zelensky is a Slavic masculine surname.Its Russian version (Russian: Зеленский) is romanized Zelenski, Zelenskii, Zelenskiy, or Zelensky, and originates from the toponym Zelyonoe, meaning “green”; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zelensky_(surname) So much for the curious coincidence, the rest is known and widely discussed: Mr. Greensky is attacked by the gas King. “The whole civilized world” is on Mr. Greensky’s side and is demanding the transformation of its energy systems, cutting off from the gas supply of the gas king to “not support the occupation of the dictator”. A flood of sanctions.. Well, it’s not exactly that, because it turns out that some Russian and American companies have significantly increased their profits, but it’s getting difficult for populations. How will the authorities “handle”… Read more »

That’s similar to the way I see it. I don’t believe that it’s an accident that ‘Mr Greensky’ always turns up to meet smartly dressed foreign heads of State in his trademark green T-shirt. There’s branding involved. In the short term, an energy & inflation crisis. Followed a ‘Winter of Discontent’ that starts in Europe in a month or two. The longer term consequence of which will be a public prepared – nay crying out – for alternative energy sources. Cue green technology to save the day. Something similar happened after the spike in oil prices following the Arab-Israeli wars during the 1970s. A scramble for alternative energy sources. Nuclear power, eg plutonium-based, is another option, for which, I think there are still plenty of reserves(?) (though Uranium-235 is limited). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium Though it’s more controversial. Anti-nuclear campaigners were pretty active in the ’70s too. So, in the short term, nations scramble… Read more »
