Admiral Igor Kabanenko: Real intentions of Russia
adminral
Dear Friends!
Let’s take a look at what Russian intentions really could be and what signs are we seeing.

They are as follows:

Putin’s statement about possible revising of Bialowieza Accords is a serious signal. Last time Putin made his speech in Moscow, he stated that “legitimization of Ukraine as an independent state” is illegal and gives Kremlin the right for restoring the old USSR by force;
A statement of NATO Secretary General about mismatch between claims of Russia pulling back their troops from the eastern borders of Ukraine and the real picture (an information about alleged departure of the Russian battalion to Samara was nothing more than a publicity stunt);
By evaluation of NATO commander, Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, the situation on the Russian – Ukrainian border is “extremely alarming” and that “Russians have everything they need to invade Ukraine”; that there is a possible scenario of invasion of Southern Ukraine to establish a land link to Crimea; as well as thrust to Odessa, and invasion of Eastern Ukraine;
The stationing of audio equipment by Russian troops on the borders with Ukraine for an active propaganda aimed at both Ukrainian military and local population;
The active intelligence by Russian special services and military intelligence on the territory of Ukraine, in particular by spy-ship near port of Odessa;
Cancelling by Russia previously scheduled talks between deputy foreign ministers of Ukraine and Russia in Minsk on April 4 is very alarming signal;
The decision of Donetsk Regional Council to hold a local referendum regarding region’s status, as well as continuous destabilizing of situation in Donetsk, Kherson, Odessa and other regions by utilizing insurgents, extremists and members of the fifth column. All these actions are directly supported by Russian leaders and State Duma;
Fierce propaganda by Moscow with a twisted rhetoric aimed at the “unity of Russian and Ukrainian people”, of course, under Moscow protectorate, as well as calming claims that Russia has no intent to invade Ukraine – we have heard this before and know how it has ended. In the war language it is called “continuous strategic misleading of the enemy”;
The rhetoric towards Ukraine changed to calming (see – after all, invasion did not happen last week!), also Russian media switched their attention to elections which clearly is a trick orchestrated by Moscow to divert attention from military escalation.
Therefore, if Kremlin truly did not want the war, it would immediately start relocation of troops to their usual bases of deployment and pack up weapons and equipment, in other words – do everything to demonstrate its good intentions. Unfortunately, their actions so far indicate exactly the opposite.
My advice, is not to relax. Hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
