“There are no tanks in the streets. But media give the impression, if one is not here, that we have a war, that we have army in the streets. That’s not the case. We don’t need this panic,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in a press conference.
Moreover, he added, “We don’t need this panic. It will cost Ukrainians dearly.”
The Ukrainian President is addressing what many parts of the population around the world are not aware of, and that is the real situation on the ground. While he cannot rule out a military conflict, the mainstream media is making the issue far worse than it seems to be at the moment.
The issue has recently boiled over to the point where U.S. President Biden is seriously considering sending troops to Ukraine. In addition, the U.S. and U.K. announced economic sanctions in the event of an invasion of Russia. These sound like serious threats directed at Moscow, which, for its part, keeps stressing that the West should stop provoking a conflict.
Who looks behind the scenes will understand that especially Biden and other Western countries since the failure to enforce various mandates, looking for issues to distract from the various domestic problems. Especially since the midterm elections in the U.S. are coming up soon and the Biden administration has a very bad standing in the U.S. population. The whole issue of Ukraine becomes a farce when we consider that for the U.S. the Ukrainian border seems to be more important than their own southern border where a record number of illegal immigrants cross the border every day without any problems.
The principle of distraction works in the context that you have to make people look away so you can do whatever you want.
Thus, various wars in the past have helped to distract from domestic problems such as monetary policy. Wars are often used as scapegoats to cover up the faults of one’s own policy. This is the only way to explain that the West is so eager for this Ukraine conflict that faraway borders are now more important than their own.
Considering the fact that Ukraine is one of the poorest countries in Europe, the corruption is very high and the unemployment rate with over 9% is far above the average of the EU (7%) and Russia (just over 5%). Hard to imagine that Russia, the EU, or the U.S. has much interest in feeding Ukraine.
And so we will probably experience a conflict this time, which will again be pushed by the warlords and the population will have to pay for it.
