I thought the entire Russian military was on the verge of collapse, being beaten back by the brave hearts of the Ukrainian people?
The US and its allies are quietly working on “contingency plans” in case Russian forces succeed in their operation in Ukraine and force the current government into exile, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.
The prospects of Russian troops seizing the Ukrainian capital, Kiev have sparked “a flurry of planning” at the US State Department, the media outlet reported. Washington allegedly expects the weapons America and its allies are currently pumping into Ukraine to be used during the protracted insurgency they expect to follow. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will take the role of “the pivotal force” rallying Ukrainians to continue fighting Russia, according to reports.
I don’t really think an ISIS style Ukrainian “insurgency” will work very well.
I don’t think there is any desire for that among normal people in the Ukraine, especially when Russia controls the media. The CIA and Mossad can continue to try to ship weapons in, but I mean, it’s just going to be a hated nuisance by the general population.
“We’re doing contingency planning now for every possibility,” a US administration official told the Washington Post, adding that one such possibility involves Zelensky establishing a government-in-exile in Poland.
On Friday, NBC News reported that a group of House conservatives met with Robert O’Brien, former US President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, who urged them to support Zelensky’s government regardless of where it relocates.
“We should recognize them as a government in exile, in Warsaw or in London, and we ought to refer to Ukraine as occupied Ukraine,” O’Brien told NBC after the meeting. Lawmakers in Washington believe there is “substantial value” in Zelensky remaining in Ukraine, including a “political advantage,” an “optics advantage,” and a “morale advantage,” but not if his life is in jeopardy, NBC reported.
This is proof that the West doesn’t actually believe that the Ukraine is going to somehow win the war against Russia.
I mean, it is insane that they are claiming that at all. It’s like, basically unbelievable. Worse than Covid propaganda.
But this is the admission, for anyone who doesn’t understand the situation.
If the Ukraine is going to win the war, they don’t need a government in exile.
