Tatarstan’s historical chances – what to do now, given the lessons of the past?

Tatarstan’s historical chances – what to do now, given the lessons of the past?

Now I am going to engage in a useless and pointless activity – repeating what has been said many times and repeated more than once, namely, telling adults not to try to hit themselves in the back of the head with the heel. It is very difficult, ridiculous, absurd and painful for the “acrobats” themselves. What do I have to say? And here’s the thing.

The partial mobilization in Russia follows the plan, but its direction is unclear

The partial mobilization in Russia follows the plan, but its direction is unclear

A murder of a military commissar, arson of a draft board, and a couple of policemen’s faces smashed during the meeting in Makhachkala were reported in Russia in the past 24 hours. It seems that the partial mobilization in Russia follows the plan. At least the military expert Oleksandr Kovalenko thinks so. Here is what he says about it. Last seven months, I was often asked if Putin would announce a mobilization. I’ve always replied that Putin is afraid of domestic detonations in society and that is why he would retard general mobilization as long as possible. In addition, you have to declare war in order to announce the mobilization.

Putin has rejected his generals’ claim for retreat from Kherson — The New Youk Times

Putin has rejected his generals’ claim for retreat from Kherson — The New Youk Times

The war correspondent and journalist Arkadiy Babchenko has numerously said that Kherson will become a new “Stalingrad” where the role of Paulus’ tank army will be played by russhist soldiers.

For good reason the bloody marshal Zhukov is one of Putin’s idols.

Zhukov: Why should we give arms to those khokhols (Ukrainians)? Women will be get more of them.

Putin: Why should we give arms to those aborigens? Women will be get more of them.

Alexander II Navalny or Ramzan Dzhugashvili?

Alexander II Navalny or Ramzan Dzhugashvili?

Many international reviewers have suggested that in the event of Russia’s military defeat in Ukraine and a subsequent period of instability with the further possible  breakup of Russia, it will not be the liberal imperialists who may come to power in the country, but even more rampant chauvinists with avowedly fascist views. The option of Putin stepping into the shadows and nominating Ramzan Kadyrov as the Savior of the Fatherland is being considered. Little chance? So be it, but tell me, who could object if siloviki (influential figures in law enforcement and security agencies) headed by terrified Putin wanted to preserve their feeder country this way? The candidate is quite suitable for the role of the executioner of All Russia, and willing to give personal guarantees. Chechens can keep their word.
