Analyzing The NATO-Backed Neo-Nazi Terrorist Attack In Russia’s Bryansk Region
Putting together the three observations related to the timing of this terrorist attack, NATO’s role in arming the Neo-Nazis that carried it out, and the US’ tacit approval of what happened, it can be concluded that a new phase of this proxy war is presently unfolding. As Kiev predictably experiences more setbacks, it’ll likely attempt to carry out more cross-border terrorist raids as an asymmetrical response and a desperate bid to boost its side’s morale in the face of growing losses on the ground.
A group of Neo-Nazi saboteurs infiltrated the border in Russia’s Bryansk Region last week to carry out a terrorist attack against some rural settlements, which Moscow claims was done with NATO-supplied weapons and Washington’s tacit approval. Infamous Russian-born fascist Denis Nikitin, the leader of the so-called “Russian Volunteer Corps”, later claimed responsibility and even brazenly contradicted Zelensky’s senior advisor Mikhail Podolyak by confirming that Kiev did indeed facilitate his attack.
The timing with which it transpired extends credence to Chairman of the “We are Together with Russia” movement Vladimir Rogov’s assessment that it was partially intended to distract from Russia’s gradual advances around Artyomovsk/“Bakhmut”. Zelensky himself flipped the script of the past few months in the run-up to the NATO-backed Neo-Nazi terrorist attack in Bryansk that his fascist regime facilitated by informing everyone that Kiev might abandon that strategic city despite previously denying that it would.
This sensitive narrative context helps observers better understand one of the reasons why Nikitin’s terrorist group carried out its attack at this particular point in time, but there’s a bit more to his side’s military-strategic calculations as well. As NATO’s self-proclaimed “race of logistics”/“war of attrition” with Russia grinds on and Kiev predictably experiences more setbacks, it’s expected that the latter will increasingly resort to more such terrorist attacks as asymmetrical responses and morale boosters.
These sorts of attacks are difficult to preemptively thwart in and of themselves, especially when considering the traditional porousness of the Russian-Ukrainian border, which in some cases regrettably remains in effect despite Moscow’s ongoing special operation. There’s no doubt that the frontier will now urgently be fortified and similar follow-up provocations will thus be less likely to succeed, but they can’t be ruled out entirely, nor should anyone take for granted that they won’t inflict some damage.
In any case, the point is that some surprising shortcomings played a role in what recently happened, but Russia will obviously learn from this in order to more effectively defend itself. Having directly addressed that proverbial elephant in the room, it’s now time to move along to the symbolic importance of NATO arms being used in the latest attack, which debunks the claims from the US-led West’s Golden Billion that there aren’t any Neo-Nazis in Ukraine nor are they supported by that de facto New Cold War bloc.
The reality as all objective observers are already well aware of is that the West has always supported such forces, exactly as Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin recently explained to everyone in his latest interview with RT. What’s unique about the latest Neo-Nazi terrorist attack, however, is that it was a daring cross-border raid. This suggests that the Golden Billion’s weaponization of fascism against Russia is entering a new phase whereby it’s about to more aggressively go on the offensive out of desperation.
That military-strategic dynamic is directly connected to the prior narrative one surrounding Kiev’s impending loss of Artyomovsk, both of which in turn lead to the third and final observation regarding the US’ role in the latest events. As the mastermind behind the NATO-Russian proxy war in Ukraine, which is the most geostrategically significant conflict since World War II, there’s no way that the US wasn’t aware of everything that unfolded ahead of time.
Moscow’s assessment that Washington at the very least tacitly approved Kiev’s cross-border Neo-Nazi terrorist attack is certainly accurate since it’s unbelievable that this happened right under the US’ nose. The Pentagon dominates the Ukrainian-fronted but fully NATO-backed battlespace behind the Line of Control and as such has complete situational understanding of everything that’s occurring on the ground there. Denying the preceding statement of fact is delusional and only done by disinformation agents.
Putting together the three observations related to the timing of this terrorist attack, NATO’s role in arming the Neo-Nazis that carried it out, and the US’ tacit approval of what happened, it can therefore be concluded that a new phase of this proxy war is presently unfolding. As Kiev predictably experiences more setbacks, it’ll likely attempt to carry out more cross-border terrorist raids as an asymmetrical response and a desperate bid to boost its side’s morale in the face of growing losses on the ground.
