These sensitive observations about the true state of socio-political affairs in Russia nowadays are being shared not for the purpose of saber-rattling, but simply to point out that there’s literally no reason for the authorities to stage a false flag incident like Kiev and Blinken ridiculously implied. Many folks have wanted the scope of the special operation to expand for a while already and some have even gone as far as lobbying for their country to enter a formal state of war in order to fully mobilize all aspects of society.
The Zelensky / Blinken regime is deep into lying. The problem with Russian retribution on Ukraine is that Ukraine is not calling the shots.
Looking back at World War 2, the Americans and British were big on revenge from a bomber, but very cautious about boots on the ground.
Victory in April 1945 came from Soviet boots and blood. I am afraid that the Ukrainian terror will not end without Russian boots and blood going to the east bank of the Dnieper.
