Russia delivers to all EU countries a humiliating ultimatum of unconditional surrender of Ukraine: Its rejection opens "Pandora's box" (Text in Greek)

President of Russia Vladimir Putin’s speech at the meeting with senior staff of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Moscow, June 14, 2024 (Text in English below)

Events are unfolding according to a catastrophic scenario before one's eyes. Ukraine has rejected Russian President Vladimir Putin's ultimatum. Russian officials "reacted with anger" to Kyiv's expected decision.

State Duma Deputy Chairman Pyotr Tolstoy said that "this is the last peace proposal from Moscow's side, the next one will be a demand for Ukraine's capitulation ( or whatever is left)" while Lavrov said:

💬 "President Vladimir Putin is a patient person. He who has ears will hear. He who has brains will know what this is all about. I’m not sure these people have these organs functioning properly, but hope dies last."

Russian analysts note that "with this peace proposal by Vladimir Putin, Ukraine would hold Kharkiv and Odesa. Ukraine lost the opportunity to preserve its statehood."

Ukraine has rejected the ultimatum announced today by Russian President Vladimir Putin as "absurd". Ukraine's Foreign Ministry described his words as "manipulative statements aimed at misleading the international community (and) undermining diplomatic efforts to achieve a just peace".

The Russian 2009 "Fourteen Points" for the European Security: Why Was the Proposal Rejected?

Dr. Vladislav B. Sotirović

In 2009, Russian President Medvedev (President from May 7th, 2008 to May 7th, 2012) called for a new European security policy known as "Fourteen Points" as a new security treaty to be accepted to maintain European security as the ability of states and societies to maintain their independent identity and functional integrity (this Russian draft European security treaty was originally posted on the President's website on November 29th, 2009). This treaty proposal was passed to the leaders of the Euro-Atlantic States and the executive heads of the relevant international organizations such as NATO, EU, the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and the Organization of Security Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). In this proposal, Russia stressed that it is open to any democratic proposal concerning continental security and is counting on a positive response from Russia's (Western) partners.

However, not so surprisingly, D. Medvedev's call for a new European security framework (based on mutual respect and equal rights) became interpreted particularly in the USA in the fashion of the Cold War 1.0, in fact, as a plot to pry Europe from its strategic partner (USA). Nevertheless, this program in the form of a proposal was the most significant initiative in IR by Russia since the dismissal of the USSR in 1991. From the present perspective, this proposal could save Ukrainian territorial integrity, but it was rejected primarily due to Washington's Russo-phobic attitude.

Moscow since 1991, and particularly since 2000, viewed NATO as a Cold War 1.0 remnant and the EU as no more but only as a common economic-financial market with many crisis management practices. Nevertheless, Medvedev's 2009 "Fourteen Points" was announced on November 29th, 2009, and Russia published a draft of a European Security Treaty. Medvedev's program resembles the program drawn up by US President Woodrow Wilson (issued on January 8th, 1918), who had emancipated peace aims in his well-known "Fourteen Points". These two programs have two things in common: 1) Both documents advocate multilateralism in the security area and devotion to international law, and 2) They are very idealistic in terms of the tools needed for their implementation.

An Experienced and Familiar Hollywood Hand...

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council

Discussions around the law on foreign agents in Tbilisi have moved into the realm of street clashes and merry Georgian brawls in Parliament.

Whoever would call such actions spontaneous protests, let him be the first to throw a stone at his mirror. Behind all these rallies we discern an experienced and familiar Hollywood hand.

The main thing that the "protesters" don't like about the law "On Transparency of Foreign Influence" that the Georgian parliament is trying to pass is this: It is a "Russian idea" and not a Western one.

A month earlier, a wave of fierce criticism from Western countries was caused by the adoption of a law in Kyrgyzstan that obliges NGOs with foreign funding to register in a special registry.

There were groans, shouts, and threats from European and American pro-government garbage dumps. And also ingratiating, but unpleasant, appeals to the leadership of this country. How dare they? Who allowed it? An internal affair of the state?

Security, sovereignty, independence? No, you haven't one. That is not for you...Behind all this is the arrogance and impotent anger of those who are increasingly given a direct rebuff, and do not want to obey. Advice is not heeded. Subservience out of the question. Demonstrations are suppressed.

Russia is undergoing a new, invisible revolution

Dmitry Trenin

The US-led bloc has pushed the country to develop a new awareness of itself and its place in the world

When President Vladimir Putin, back in February 2022, launched Russia’s military operation in Ukraine, he had specific, but limited objectives in mind. It was essentially about assuring Russia’s security vis-à-vis NATO.

However, the drastic, expansive and well-coordinated Western reaction to Moscow’s moves – the torpedoing of the Russo-Ukrainian peace deal and the mounting escalation of the US-led bloc's involvement in the conflict, including its role in deadly attacks inside Russia – have fundamentally changed our country's attitude towards our former partners.

We no longer hear talk about “grievances” and complaints about “failures in understanding.” The last two years have produced nothing less than a revolution in Moscow’s foreign policy, more radical and far-reaching than anything anticipated on the eve of the Ukraine intervention. Over the past 25 months, it has been quickly gaining in strength and profundity. Russia's international role, its position in the world, its goals and methods of reaching them, its basic worldview – all are changing.

The national foreign policy concept, signed by Putin just a year ago, represents a major departure from its predecessors. It establishes the country’s identity in terms of it being a distinct civilization. In fact, it is the first official Russian document to do so. It also radically transforms the priorities of Moscow's diplomacy, with the countries of the post-Soviet ‘near abroad’ on top, followed by China and India, Asia and the Middle East, and Africa and Latin America.

Western Europe and the United States rank next to last, just above the Antarctic.

Subtraction Problem

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council

(once again about the population of a dying country)

I want to return once again to the topic of the size of the population of "Ukraine". Judging by some simple arithmetic, this "country" has a mythical past, a sad present and no future.

1. Let us remember that in 2001, as the census showed, there were about 48.5 million people living in "Ukraine" (many of them, however, were permanently working abroad and had only registration at home).

2. In 2014, Crimea and Donbas seceded - the shagreen skin of the population began to shrink.

3. Analytical almshouse with a beautiful name "Ukrainian Institute of the Future" believes that at the beginning of February 2022, the number of permanent population of Ukraine was 37.6 million people. This is confirmed by the figures given by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine according to the electronic census of 2019 - then counted 37.289 million.

4. The main problem today is the incessant outflow of the population outside the "Nezalezhnaya"[1] as an aggressive, impoverished and life-threatening "nenka"[2]. This is recognized both by the Ukrainian services themselves and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. True, by habit, some data are overstated, others understated. But the trend is clear in all attempts at falsification.

Unlearned lessons. Dmitry Medvedev analyzes the events of 2008

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)
Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council

We do not need a repetition of the history of 2008. We are still ready to solve problems at the negotiating table in the spirit of the UN Charter. But if our concerns become reality, we will not hesitate.

Fifteen years ago, events took place that neither we nor the whole world will ever forget. On August 7, 2008, at 23:35, Georgia unleashed a barrage of cannons, Grads, and mortars on the sleeping capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinvali. There were reports of strikes in hospitals and schools, mass deaths of the city's inhabitants, many of whom were citizens of the Russian Federation, and casualties among Russian peacekeepers. Not just a provocation - a war.

The goal of aggression was to return unruly South Ossetia through blood, death, and horror to the limits of a hostile state that for many years carried out unconcealed and systematic genocide of the Ossetian people. To crush and bring to their knees, to force them to give up the very idea of independence and freedom. The moment of the attack was chosen with undisguised cynicism - in the days when the whole world was watching the Olympic Games in Beijing - then a symbol of competition without hostility, equality of the worthy, honor, and justice.

The Age of Confrontation

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)

Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, on how the tectonic civilizational rift can and must be resolved.

Once again, there is a white noise coming from the West, and accusations against Russia keep coming. Everyone, from the senators in the US Senate to the unstable old guy in the White House, is sick with heavy Russophobia.

It would seem that everything has been said before. Why are Western politicians again spouting nonsense about the need for a "strong signal" about the Kiev protectorate's participation in the North Atlantic Alliance? Why do they continue dictating a peace for Ukraine only on the terms of the Nazi Kiev regime? Why so much rage after almost a year and a half of SWO?

Of course, our enemies, both external and internal, were hardly pleased with the result of the recent armed insurgency. Power in Russia has convincingly proved its strength and resilience, and the country's people have demonstrated their willingness to rally around Commander-in-Chief, Vladimir Putin, to defend the homeland. On the other hand, it is unlikely that our opponents were so upset by our capture of Artemovsk, aka Bakhmut. The defeat of the AFU on this front was a foregone conclusion.

Another thing is that the beginning of the counterattack was unexpected for the Western political morons. They believed in the genius of their instructors, the omnipotence of unlimited money and the power of the lauded NATO equipment. What more is, disgusting figures have been saying, here and there, officially or not so officially: Russia has already lost, [and] we have won. Why did they suddenly start singing such bravura songs?

Now, facts are stubborn things, there is no place for illusions. The tectonic rift that has formed between different parts of the world as to the understanding of the future of this conflict will only deepen. The confrontation will be very long. But let us understand their arguments first.

Britain and NATO "At War" - Russian Military Strikes Against Them Would Be Lawful

Christopher Black

Attorney Says Britain and NATO "At War" - Russian Military Strikes Against Them Would Be Lawful

On the 19th of May, the Financial Times quoted the British Minister of Defense, Ben Wallace, stating that the West could face the threat of full-scale war with Russia and China by the end of the decade and proclaimed defence preparation a paramount task for Western countries.

One has to wonder what universe Mr. Wallace and his boss, Rishi Sunak, are living in since Britain is engaged in war with Russia right now, has, with every step, every hostile action, set itself up for a full-scale war, a full-scale catastrophe, which they cannot prevent. Why Britain would go to war with China as well as Russia when China has not threatened it and is oceans away, no one can explain in rational terms. Yet, this is the British rhetoric, the fetishistic parroting of the words of their lord and master, the USA.

Many argue that statements, a war is not happening, that it is something that exits only in the future, are desperate attempts to fool the British people, to lie to them about their government’s intentions and what is coming. Others argue that they are signs that the British government has no sense of reality. But, in the end, one has to conclude that they are both at the same time. Worse, these statements speak of a government, that seems to think it is untouchable, that the war with Russia will be limited in geographic space to Ukraine, that Britain’s participation in the war against Russia will have no direct consequences for Britain and its people, that Russia will not dare to follow military and political logic and conduct military strikes against Britain. Nothing could be further from the truth, yet the British establishment, dreaming of its past, is unable to accept reality, is leading the British people towards disaster, as the gathering storm of war edges ever closer to their shores.

And Then the Zombie Apocalypse Begins

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)

On the third day, yet another epic drama from Hollywood is unfolding before our eyes. The sequel to the film, which was dedicated to Saddam's chemical weapons, with a demonstration of test tubes at the UN.

The world, with its mouth open and experiencing a slight gag reflex, looks at the numerous outpourings of the Western media about "who blew up the Nord Stream after all." And: who really framed Roger Rabbit?

It turns out that it's all about some unknown "pro-Ukrainian group." Which, it is emphasized, is not connected in any way, well, not, absolutely not, with a single wire and switch, neither with Bandera Kiev nor with Europe zombified by gynecologists, nor with America plunged into senility, nor with the other Western world that sickened by Russophobic hysteria. Just some lone heroes who entered into a fight with the cursed Muscovites! A new salvation of the world by some Inglorious Basterds.

It turns out to be so-so and the actors are mediocre. Clearly not the level of a Brad Pitt or Christoph Waltz. And the director is clearly not at Quentin Tarantino's level. Weak (very weak) casting and camera. The script is just sad shit. Stupid American propaganda. Nobody likes it. Even the average Europeans, used to poisoned stuff like this, don't believe any of it.

They feel sick, as if they have eaten pork knuckle with beer.

As the American lights of freedom of speech (and the vassalized German mass media joined in), the mysterious divers (wearing black balaclavas over wetsuits, no less) were "citizens of Ukraine or Russia," or whatever. At the same time, they are not connected in any way with the Kiev regime. Especially not with "the free world." Not with any state at all, look, they are Citizens of the World, right? Just some fighters against Muscovy. Solitary heroes. (And schizophrenics, perhaps?)

The Point of No Return

Dmitry Medvedev (Дмитрий Медведев)

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev — about the causes of the current geopolitical crisis and the guarantee of preserving the future for the whole world.

Last year's anniversary — the 100th anniversary of the formation of the USSR - was held against the background of tectonic processes that originated three decades ago and provoked powerful, destructive shocks in 2022. With a metallic crash, the foundations of the post-Soviet world order collapsed, which until recently was considered not the best, but still more or less familiar. The international airbags did not work, and now the cracks go wide and deep into the entire system of maintaining peace on the planet.

The reasons for what is happening are sought in the legacy of a long and relatively new history. After all, what we are witnessing now has happened more than once — at the moment when another world empire was coming to the end of its existence.

The beginning of the tragedy that is unfolding in Ukraine today goes back in time; to the end of the last century. But let us rather turn to the events of the relatively recent past, which many of us have witnessed, specifically to the moment when the Soviet Union collapsed. Our powerful country has seen confrontations between the blocks and disagreement about nuclear missiles, but has after World War II nevertheless largely based itself on agreements and the mutual interests between participating countries, on food supplies to its satellites, on tractors and tanks, on "socialist realism," although the communist regime lasted much less than the centuries-old Russian Empire it defeated.
