I always like to look past the headlines to see what’s really going on. Things are rarely as they seem. But it can be difficult to discern the truth because there is so much propaganda and disinformation coming from both sides. So, what’s really going on in the Ukraine\Russia conflict?
We should begin with the understanding that Ukraine has always been in a tug-of-war of sorts between the West and the East. With that in mind, let’s review what we know so far. Back in 2009, the Obama administration attempted to improve relations between the U.S. and Russia, dubbed the Russian reset. That lasted until 2013, all of four years. The president of Ukraine at the time, Viktor Yanukovych, was pro-Russian and refused to sign a free trade agreement with the EU.
As a result, in 2014 this led to a U.S. backed regime change using what is known as a color revolution, though it was presented in the media as a ‘Revolution of Dignity’. Regime change worked and Yanukovych was removed and replaced with the more pro-Western Petro Poroshenko. Having a pro-Western president sounds good in theory, but much of the Western powers have been infiltrated and taken over by globalists, keep this in mind. In response, Putin invaded and annexed Crimea in March of 2014.
So now that Ukraine was under Western influence, Ukraine was turned into one big money laundering operation to enrich the political elite. Recall that in April of 2014, Joe Biden got his son Hunter appointed to the board of directors for Burisma, the largest private natural gas producer in Ukraine. We learned from Hunter’s laptop that ten percent was given to ‘the big guy’, who we assume to be Joe Biden himself. Biden is not alone. Other politicians have gotten their children involved in Ukrainian oil and gas companies including Romney, Pelosi, and Kerry. No doubt they have the same arrangement as Hunter had with his father. And I’m sure that only scratches the surface on who has been profiting off Ukraine.
For me, this explains a few things. It explains why the Democrats have been so obsessed with Russia since at least 2016. It also explains why the Democrats are so vested in this conflict. It’s not that they really care about Ukraine or the Ukrainian people. It’s that Ukraine has been their cash cow and where all their dirty little secrets are buried. When Putin invaded Ukraine, he threatened to end their cash flow and expose their secrets.
So that explains the Democrat’s motive, but what is Putin’s motive? Putin sees NATO expanding eastward, ever closer to Russia’s borders, as a threat. This explains why he made his move on Crimea after the pro-Russian Ukrainian president was replaced and installed with a pro-Western president. It likely explains why he’s making his move now on Ukraine. Notice both invasions occurred under Obama\Biden. I don’t believe that is a coincidence.
There may be other factors at play. Putin is many things; ex-KGB, a nationalist, a strongman, but he’s also an anti-globalist and hasn't gone along with the Great Reset. At the World Economic Forum, Putin said “It’s clear that an era associated with attempts to build a centralized world order is over.” Russia has even gone so far as to ban George Soros foundation which they called a state security threat. So, there is a battle going on between the Western Globalists and Putin\Russia, with Ukraine caught in the middle. That’s not to say Putin is necessarily the good guy in all this, but that both sides are motivated by their own self-interests.
