Taken from an interview with NIKOLAI PATRUSHEV, Russian Security Council Secretary

  1. The United States is in favor of a world system where Washington wants to play a central role, while the dissidents are branded as ‘undemocratic states’. The United States declares itself the defender of international law and claims that the world must live according to its rules. Its geopolitical adversaries are heaped with patently false accusations of military crimes and corruption, but the US turns a blind eye to the real acts of genocide and financial machinations perpetrated with the White House’s approval. The U.S. promise to feed the hungry and free unjustly imprisoned individuals, but they keep silent about the fact that the US prison population amounts to about one-fifth of the entire world’s prison population, including people sentenced to several life terms. They show special zeal in defending sexual minority rights and imposing their green agenda on the world, thereby aggravating the energy crisis in their satellite countries. While hypocritically speculating about the freedom of choice, the United States, the self-appointed global dictator is scoffing at countries whose sovereignty and democracy it has trampled underfoot. The U.S. claims to be a paragon of democracy for the entire human race and do not wish to hear criticism about themselves. The main task of the political regime in the present-day US is to mislead their own population amid the system-wide crisis they are facing. Their democracy is nothing more than a pretty façade of a state structure designed to cover up how they ignore the rights of the common American. Those who have taken a closer look at the US legal and socio-political system have no illusion  about whether there is freedom if speech or freedom of expression. How can there be freedom of opinion, if even the former president of the United States is prevented rom speaking on the social media or in the press about issues that interest the public, and while the media are propaganda outlets for major companies and elite groups. While defending competition by word only, the American authorities have made the country’s economy dependent on corrupt and lobbying ties traced to the White House and the Capitol. The political process has degenerated into a clash between corporations, which put their people in key positions in the bodies of power. They also shape the US foreign policy and seek to maintain US global domination by creating hotbeds of tension all over the world for the sake of their billion-dollar profits from various contracts, the imaginary transparency of which they themselves control. Though proclaiming democratic slogans in season and out of season, Washington has long become a champion in violating the sovereignty of states, in the number of war and conflicts unleashed and illegal hunting of citizens of other countries. If the US really decides to advance towards democracy and stops humiliating its allies/vassals, Russia will only welcome that.
  2. NATO countries are a party to the conflict in Ukraine. They made one large military camp out of Ukraine They are shipping weapons and ammunitions to Ukrainian troops, provide them with intelligence, including with the help of satellite imagery specialists and a fair number of UAVs. NATO instructors and advisers are training the Ukrainian military and, mercenaries are fighting as part of neo-Nazi battalions. In an attempt to draw out the military confrontation as much as possible, they are not hiding their goal which is to defeat Russia on the battlefield and then dismember it.
  3. The US authorities’ unchecked push to maintain their leading role around the world has been a source of escalation if tensions on a global scale since at least 1945.  They believe two great powers, Russia and China are standing in their way and prevent them from achieving their goal. The Russian Federation is a problem because in addition to pursuing an independent policy for strengthening the multipolar world, it defeats America spiritually, morally and militarily. China is the United States’ main economic rival. Their attempts to suppress Russia will be followed by Washington’s taking on the PRC. Concrete steps to destroy the Soviet Union were approved 75 years ago in a well-known NSC directive ‘US Objectives with Respect to Russia’. The West went euphoric with the collapse of the Soviet Union. The euphoria did not last long, though, because Russia corrected its mistakes. Today Russia can ensure not only domestic stability but national security against external threats as well.  
  4. Earlier this March, a US strategic bomber practiced a simulated nuclear strike on St Petersburg from a distance of 200 kilometres above the island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea in a deliberate attempt to exacerbate tensions. They don’t fear anything anymore. For some reason, the US politicians who are held captive by their own propaganda remain confident that in the event of a direct conflict with Russia, the United States is capable of delivering a preventive missile strike that will render Russia unable to retaliate. This is a case of shortsighted and very dangerous foolhardiness. Some people in the West have forgotten the lessons of history and are talking about turning the tables and prevailing militarily over Russia. We can say only one thing in response to this: Russia is a patient country and does not intimidate anyone with its military advantage. However, it has unique modern weapons that can destroy any enemy, including the United States, in case it is faced with an existential threat.
  5. The West is betting not only on a military defeat, but on the economic attrition of Russia as well. Many Western companies left the Russian market under pressure from Washington. However, they were seriously mistaken in their projections concerning the collapse of the Russian economy and the growth of protest sentiment. In the last decade, the West has been implementing the idea of creating a technological order where it was the only beneficiary of economic prosperity, while the rest of the world was destined to remain on the fringe of socioeconomic progress.  Therefore, its leaders are irate at Russia’s measured response to sanctions pressure. Russia is a pet peeve for the rulers in the United States and Europe as a country that is independent in terms of its economy, raw materials and scientific research. For their part, Western countries are completely dependent on transnational companies and global supply chains. If sanctions at the same level were to be imposed on the United Kingdom or France, they would have quickly plunged into chaos. However, Russia is not going to keep the rest of the world cut off from its economy. It will remain open and integrated with the economies of those sovereign countries that are concerned about their own prosperity, which is based among other things on cooperation with Russia.
  6. Undermining the Russian economy and bleeding the Russian army dry are two sides of one strategy that the West has been trying to implement for centuries now. One should not naively believe that economic aggression is softer and more humane. European countries and Japan have stopped supplying a number of medicines, including vital ones to Russia. In this regard, the Western pharmaceutical industry deserves an honorable mention as a successor to the “traditions” established by its predecessors. It's a known fact that most of these companies have at some point worked on developing toxic gases and gas chambers commissioned by Nazi Germany, thus fully supporting the ideology substantiating the genocide of the “superfluous” nations. Think back to how the Anglo-Saxons nurtured Nazis in the 1930s in hope of using them against the Soviet Union. Having reaped financial and geopolitical benefits from the outcomes of World War II, Washington and London are again conniving with Nazism and fascism. They have no qualms about using Ukraine to set Europe or the entire world ablaze in a belief that they can get away with anything.
  7. The collective West is not even thinking about learning from the past. The Western Internationale has challenged Russia more than once under the banners of the Poles or the Swedes, Napoleonic eagles, the British flag or Nazi swastika. The result has always been the same and the attempts to crush Russia were futile. The Westerners are unwilling to learn their lessons and keep looking for trouble. Washington is not happy with stability in Asia that came as a result of WWII and the liberation movement, either. The U.S. Indo-Pacific strategy is an attempt to create an Asian NATO. The new alliance will be another aggressive bloc directed against China and Russia and will b used to subject independent states. Rearming the Australian Navy under the new AUKUS alliance, including the supply of nuclear submarines, and military support for Taiwan and South Korea have a long term goal of establishing US and NATO dominance over Eurasia on its eastern flank. Washington nudged Tokyo to begin another militarization, The Japan Seld-Defence Forces are a bout to become a full-fledged army capable of conducting offensive operations. This has been confirmed by Japanese legislation, which is in fact a gross violation of one of the most important outcomes of World War II. Focusing on attack weapons, Prime Minister Kishida said his country was about to purchase 400 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the United States. In addition to arming Japan, Washington is trying to revive the spirit of Japanese militarism which seemed to have been uprooted in 1945. It appears that someone plans to turn residents if that island state into kamikazes dying for other people interests. The Westerners choose not to recall or deliberately keep silent about using Japan’s aggressiveness against the Soviet Union and China at the beginning of the 20th century but in the end the Japanese turned their weapons against the Americans, the British and their allies.
  8. The American and European politicians tend to not only forget about awkward facts from their post, but also deliberately rewrite history even when it runs counter to common sense. This can be seen from the hypocritical campaign to rehabilitate Nazism. They have even gone so far as claiming that Ukrainians were the only soldiers to liberate Europe from Nazism. They are touting the myth about the Holodomor as an act of genocide. People who know history and are not attempting to falsify it are well aware of the fact that access to food was a bigger problem in the RSFSR than in Ukraine in the 1920s and 1930s. This is a well-documented state of affairs, and facts abound to back it up. The biography of the Hero of the Soviet Union Grigory Boyarinov is a case in point. His 100th birth anniversary was marked at the end of last year. He was a renowned intelligence officer and a participant in the Great Patriotic War and many special operations. He died while leading the assault on Amin’s palace in Afghanistan. He was born in 1922 in the Smolensk Region. His father was chairman of a collective farm. However, in the 1930s his family relocated to Ukraine where food was more readily available and survival was more likely.  The Americans are using famine slogans on a global scale and accuse Russia of provoking a global food crisis. Meanwhile, the Westerners are blocking exports of Russian grain and fertilizer abroad robbing Ukrainians of their grain, which they resell at exorbitant prices to poor countries on predatory terms as their colonial ancestors did.
  9. The collapse of the EU is not far off. Of course, the Europeans will not continue to put up with this superstructure which not only failed to justify its existence but is also pushing the Old World into an open conflict with Russia. The United States is prepared to fight Russia not only to the last Ukrainian but to the last European as well.  Even during the Cold War, at the slightest sign of a threat from the Soviet Union, the Pentagon was ready to turn Europe into a radioactive wasteland. I don’t think the US strategists have changed their minds in this regard. The irony is that Washington has a stake in seeing the EU disintegrate in order to eliminate an economic competitor and to prevent Europe from prospering through cooperation with Russia. The Americans have done a lot to make sure the Old World loses its status of a strong economic player. In many respects, Washington has been fomenting the anti-Russian sanctions exactly for this purpose. We are witnessing a sea change in the EU’s economic model based on a mix of cheap energy from Russia and advanced European technology.  The implementation of joint plans with Washington to reduce raw material and technology dependence on Beijing will deal an equally devastating blow to Europe. In addition, the EU us facing a migration dead end. Many migrants are not unwilling to become integrated into the European family but create their own caliphates and force the local governments and residents into living according to their laws. Criminals and gunmen are coming to Europe with other migrants. Most recent high-profile terrorist attacks in London, Brussels and Paris were committed by EU citizens hailing from ethnic enclaves. Keeping in mind that Al-Qaeda, ISIS (these international terrorist organizations are outlawed in the Russian Federation) and other terrorist organizations were created by the United States, and terrorists in Syria and Iraq are trained by the CIA instructors, it cannot be ruled out that the terrorist attacks in Europe were made possible by the same individuals who seek to destabilize the situation in Europe whose future the United States doesn’t care about.  The United States is ruling the roost in Europe, ignoring the fact that the leading role on this continent has historically been assigned to Russia. In the 19th century it was the Russian Empire and in the 20th century the Soviet Union. So it will be in the 21st century as well.
  10. The United States acquired the status of a great power as a result of economic achievements based on cynical seizure of territories, resources, exploiting people and profiting from other countries’ war tragedies. Still, they remained a patchwork quilt that can easily burst at the seams and cleave into North and South the way things were early on. Moreover, we cannot rule out that the South will not start moving towards Mexico, whose lands the Americans seized in 1848. We are talking about over 2 million square kilometers. Latin American leaders are not hiding the fact that their awareness of the United States’ destructive role has become widespread. The fact of creating the Guantanamo base is considered an outright theft of Cuban sovereignty. This is one of the many examples of systematic encroachment on independence of the Latin American countries. There is no doubt that sooner or later US neighbors south of the border will take back the territories that were stolen from them.
  11. The United States is torn by multiple internal contradictions. There is no unity even within the American elite. The antagonism between Republicans and Democrats is exacerbating. Differences between various financial entities and transnational corporations that care about nothing, not even America’s prosperity, but their own capitalization are mounting. The US elites who think of themselves as untouchables never thought of themselves as part of the American people. Their projects like BLM, or Black Lives Matter, and the sweeping inculcation of transgender theories are aimed at spiritual degradation of the public which is already in a state of apathy. The Americans’ individualism and consumerism will play a cruel trick on the country. Ordinary citizens will not lift a finger to keep America whole as they are fully aware that the government does not need them. US authorities don’t know what they are doing and are slowly destroying themselves. America’s problem is that it has got carried away with playing geopolitical games and let its own pressing problems unattended. While the United States is busy developing new viruses in its military biological laboratories to destroy the peoples of objectionable countries, the once clean American cities are drowning in fifth and garbage. Built with the help of the printing press, the US financial pyramid keeps faltering. The model that is based on unchecked emissions where economic issues are literally flooded with money cannot remain viable forever. With over $31.5 trillion in foreign debt, the US is on track to default. The eroding confidence in the dollar that is not backed by actual goods and in inflated stock market speculations will plunge the United States into a devastating financial crisis. No matter how ostentatious it may sound Russians not only don’t want war, but they don’t want to see the demise of the United States or any other country. Russian centuries-old culture is based on spirituality, compassion and mercy. Russia is a historical champion of sovereignty and statehood of all nations who turned to it for help. Russia saved the United States at least twice, once during the Revolutionary War and the again during the Civil War. I believe helping the United States to maintain its integrity this time would be pointless.

May 9, 2023

Putin said civilization is again at a decisive turning point. A real war has been unleashed against our Motherland. The West forgot who defeated the Nazis. Ukraine is similar to Nazi Germany. Western globalist elites are sowing Russophobia and aggressive nationalism, while the Ukrainian people have become hostages to a state coup and to the ambitions of the West. Day he West's "untamed ambitions, arrogance and impunity" are to blame for the conflict
