Of course craziness abounds in all the 5 eyes nations. False flag potential? If one occurs look to the 5 eyes nations. That’s my opinion.
Crimea is definitely a prized possession the west would like to repossess. Crimean’s voted in a referendum deciding to stay with Russia and separate themselves from Ukraine. An outcome that was never accepted by some.
Canada sends special ops and mulls sending more weapons.
Most of the dumbed down in Canada are completely unaware how busy our military has been with the neo nazis in Ukraine.
Canada has deployed a small contingent of special forces operators to Ukraine, Canada’s Global News reported on Monday, after security talks last week ended without a breakthrough in resolving tensions between Moscow and Kyiv.
I’m not buying the reports Russia has 100,000 troops stationed at the Ukraine border. That seems excessive. Additionally Canada has been sending arms and has troops present in Ukraine since 2015
A spokesperson for the Canadian Special Operations Forces Command said it could not confirm the report, but said it has supported the Ukrainian security forces on a periodic basis since autumn of 2020.
Canada, which has the world’s third-largest Ukrainian population after Ukraine and Russia, has maintained a 200-strong training mission in western Ukraine since 2015.
Canadian officials who met with Ukrainian unit linked to neo-Nazis feared exposure by news media: documents
A year before the meeting, Canada’s Joint Task Force Ukraine produced a briefing on the Azov Battalion, acknowledging its links to Nazi ideology. “Multiple members of Azov have described themselves as Nazis,” the Canadian officers warned ( admitted, acknowledged to stay ahead of any potential fall out? ) in their 2017 briefing.
The Canadian military was warned in 2015 before starting its Ukraine training mission about the dangers of the far-right within the Ukrainian military ranks, but the senior leadership largely ignored those concerns.
On Monday, this newspaper revealed that in 2018 Canadian officials met with members of the Azov Battalion, a Ukrainian unit linked to neo-Nazis. The officers and diplomats didn’t denounce the unit but were instead concerned the media would expose details of the get-together. The Canadians allowed themselves to be photographed with battalion members, which the Azov Battalion then used for its propaganda purposes.
UK is sending arms as well
“The UK has begun supplying Ukraine with anti-tank weapons to help it defend itself against “a potential invasion during its confrontation with Russia, Reuters reported.”
Or to use for an attack of some sort?
I’m going to repeat again, I do not believe that Russia is going to invade Ukraine. I’m thinking the US is looking to antagonize/destabilize Russia. With an eye to balkanization. This has long, long, long been a goal of the 5 eyes nations.
Russia vs. Ukraine: The Intel Game
In the event of a conflict, the United States could supply the Ukrainian armed forces with substantial intelligence with respect to the movement, strength, and logistical support networks of Russian forces in the field. This matters a great deal on the ground; Ukrainian artillery bombardments directed by US-supplied satellite intelligence could kill hundreds or even thousands of Russian troops.
The US could also lend its massive satellite communications capabilities to Ukrainian forces in the field, and although there would certainly be interoperability concerns these networks could provide communications more secure and more immediate than Ukraine’s armed forces currently possess
Russia vs. Ukraine: The Cyber Game
The United States tends to keep its cyber capabilities close to the vest, and so it’s unclear what Washington can do to disrupt or divert the flow of information in deployed Russian military forces. But freezing or even damaging Russian communications could have significant tactical and operational effects. The US could also launch a wide-ranging set of cyber-attacks against Russian government institutions and Russia’s own cyber-agencies; such efforts have seen some success in the recent past. It remains unclear, however, how willing either Moscow or Washington will be to let the cyber dogs off their leashes.
