RUSSIAN FEDERATION SITREP 3 FEBRUARY 2022 by Patrick Armstrong

MY LATEST WRITINGS. THE WEST LEAVES MUMMY’S BASEMENT THE ANSWERS. Here they are. Not good enough; not serious; no grasp of reality. NATO says it’s not to blame for anything and Washington’s willing to talk but only about a few … Continue reading

RUSSIAN FEDERATION SITREP 20 JANUARY 2022 by Patrick Armstrong

ULTIMATUM. The EU is not in the picture – too weak and the US won’t fight for it; NATO ditto. Do Berlin and Paris start to see reality? London has invited Shoygu but is shipping PAWs to Ukraine. Russia keeps … Continue reading
