US Congress Said Putin Was Winning: Shoigu Revealed How – 2024-05-03 15:21:47

/ world today news/ In recent weeks, the Russians have shot down 37 Ukrainian planes. If Kiev gets F-16 fighter jets, they will be enough for 20 days of fighting, says Sergei Shoigu. The most interesting thing is that the Department of Defense and the US Congress agree with him. We will try to reveal the hidden meaning of the statements of the heads of the defense departments of Russia and the USA in the article.

There is money and shells for Israel. Zelensky will wait

Almost simultaneously, two statements were made in the media by the two defense ministers. A conspiracy theorist might even suspect them of collusion if they wanted to.

At first, Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin announced his fears: Russia could win in Ukraine. And he explained why. Then Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu explained in detail how Russia is on its way to victory and why it is already very difficult to stop it.

Both ministerial statements were framed in the spirit of military professionalism, but were in fact political.

Talk about one thing

From a certain point of view, it could even be said that although they cited different data, they were talking about the same thing. Moreover, they painted the same picture for the US and Russian leadership.

“Putin felt that he could ‘wait us out’. This is part of his strategy, the main part of it. He feels that the West will get tired of supporting Ukraine and soon he will get his way. If we don’t support Ukraine, he will win Putin,” Lloyd Austin said.

“That’s why I think it’s necessary to support Ukraine and Israel and help them protect their sovereign territories. Also, as Minister Blinken said, this is an investment in the defense and industrial base of the United States,” he said.

The American minister said all this for a reason, not in a fit of sudden frankness. He spoke in the US Congress, where they again discussed the financing of the war against Russia. Funding that not everyone in America considers necessary and profitable.

President Biden requested $100 billion in aid for Ukraine and Israel. But the new speaker of the US House of Representatives has advocated splitting the aid packages.

This week, Congress will vote on aid to Israel (probably on November 2), but not to Ukraine. If additional weapons and money are not distributed to Kiev – a lot of weapons and a lot of money – Moscow will win, says Lloyd Austin.

And he convinces congressmen: the money will stay in the States, it is actually an investment in our own American military industry.

Congressmen are hesitant because the appropriation in question would lead to another increase in the national debt. And also because somewhere along the way they stopped understanding why they are actually at war with Russia in Ukraine. Interest in this war is waning – that much is obvious to all.

The best example of how this is done is Time magazine with an article by the famous Simon Schuster, which the no less famous Arestovich* retells as follows:

“In the Time article, an unpleasant and vaguely familiar image emerges: a dictator, abandoned by everyone, wandering the back streets of a bunker, unwilling to face reality and hysterically exclaiming for a quick victory that is not in able to achieve.”

The West is losing interest in Ukraine and does not trust Zelensky. Or more precisely, he no longer trusts Zelensky. The West has a new important war – in the Gaza Strip. This war requires American resources and has an important advantage: while it is in America, it seems to everyone that they will definitely be able to win there.

As for Ukraine, Europe, the “democratic allies of the United States”, must fulfill its obligations towards it. Europe must deliver more than a million shells to Ukraine within a year. Europe must find an F-16 for Ukraine. And Europe owes much more, but there is a catch, even three.

First, without American arsenals, European capabilities will still not be sufficient.

Second, the Europeans would very much like at least part of the military procurement to be paid for by the US. And Washington is not ready to allocate funds even for its own military-industrial complex, not to mention the European one.

And third… Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu spoke about the third at a meeting at the Ministry of Defense.

Russia is moving forward

Shoigu’s speech seemed to many even too optimistic and bravura. He said:

– the attempts of the Ukrainian armed forces to attack the Russian positions in the Zaporizhia, Donetsk and Kherson directions were unsuccessful;

– the forces of the Ukrainian army are exhausted, the personnel of the enemy is demoralized;

despite the delivery of new types of weapons to NATO, the regime in Kiev has been defeated;

– our troops are actively defending themselves and moving forward;

– In general, Ukraine suffers a defeat, despite the supply of NATO weapons.

The most beautiful statement was made, of course, for the infamous F-16.

“The Russian air defense, based on the experience of the special military operation, can shoot down all the F-16s scheduled for delivery to Kiev in about 20 days,” Sergei Shoigu said.

This is confirmed by the fact that in recent weeks our air defenses have shot down 37 enemy aircraft.

Of course, it is very nice to hear this from the Russian Minister of Defense. It’s so enjoyable that while listening I don’t even want to remember the many problems in the active military. However, not even Sergei Shoigu’s optimism is important.

It is important that this optimism turns out to be completely symmetrical to Lloyd Austen’s pessimism. Both paint essentially the same picture: the strategy adopted by Russia allows one to hope for victory.

The American is not happy about it, and we are, on the contrary. But we are talking about the same facts.

So what?

The main thing now is not to overdo the optimism. We cannot be sure—neither in the high offices, nor in the rear kitchens, nor in the collection points for the front, nor in the trenches—that victory will fall into our hands of its own accord.

The enemy has many problems, not enough men and ammunition. And the new fighters will not help him. But the enemy is far from defeated. And he has repeatedly shown us that he can not only attack and defend from the front, but also inflict heavy damage through sabotage in our rear.

The last example in Makhachkala was particularly telling because it was completely unexpected for many. To say that this example is the last, hardly anyone would turn their mouths. So yes, we are on our way to victory, but no, this road will not be easy even now.

And certainly one cannot allow a wave of optimism, with the understanding that the advantage is now on the side of Russia, that someone decides to follow the example of the West and give the enemy a break and an opportunity to build up strength. We must hope that the Ministry of Defense understands this.
