Vladimir Putin is a superior strategist and will not allow Russian military to be defeated in Ukraine. In fact, it’s impossible for Russia to lose, said Sussex University’s former Professor Of International Politics, Kees van Der Pijl, on my TNT show.
Pepe Escobar agrees and his conversation with me, about BRICS versus NATO, is an excellent listen. Actually, so is Kees’s previous conversation with me, about the significance of the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines MH17 (which, contrary to the established narrative, was not done by Russian military).
Pretty much everything claimed by Western media, relating to what’s happening in Ukraine, is nonsense. Which is why Russia Today and Sputnik News are banned across the West; the establishment doesn’t want people to know the truth and would rather feed the sheeple with anti-Russian propaganda.
Rachel Blevins is an American journalist who was reporting for Russia Today at the time it was banned across the United States. Her story about all the hatred and death threats flung her way is sad (but predictable).
Kees Van Der Pijl joined me for another conversation, this time taking me through the history of the conflict in Ukraine and explaining why Vladimir Putin made a few calculation errors when “invading” Ukraine but, ultimately, stands absolutely no chance of losing the war. Kees added that Ukraine will probably cease to exist in its current geographical and cultural form, which is not dissimilar to what Dmitry Orlov told me.
