For The Siloviki, Getting Rid Of Vladimir Putin Became A High-Priority Project
NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — Ask any American what country poses the biggest threat to the United States today and most will say Russia. It will take some effort to explain it in a non-condescending way. In short, Vladimir V. Putin of Russia embodies all that is evil in the world. The Siloviki in the Kremlin understood the needs of their master as well as Putin understood the needs of them. But what do the Siloviki expect? The Kremlin has largely taken control of the south-eastern port city of Mariupol, which has been razed to rubble by Russian bombs. Mariupol will live in the memory of the world as a whole as a symbol of the horrors of the war in Ukraine. Russian troops have pummelled the port city for months, turning Mariupol into a wasteland with an unknown death toll. The total body count is uncertain, but one fact is sure: encouraged by this success, the Kremlin decided to launch an even more spectacular attack on Odessa, the third most populous city and municipality in Ukraine and a major seaport and transport hub located in the south-west of the country. Much worse is the general atmosphere prevailing in the Kremlin, and the frantic hatred with which the Siloviki rave against the West. The nature of the Vladimir Putin regime is further shaped by the ways in which the Siloviki clique interacts with Putin. A near zero tolerance for criticism about him and his decision-making in Ukraine is a fundamental characteristic of the Putin regime. Moreover, Vladimir Putin had during the COVID-19 pandemic developed an inner circle of just three advisors who understood these unspoken rules with absolute clarity and conducted themselves in ways designed to retain Putin’s favor and not to critique his strategic thought.
Nuclear Strike More Probable Than Kremlin Losing Ukraine War
There was a basic — and until now unreported — reason for caution: a series of highly classified U.S. Intelligence intercepts which demonstrated that — Vladimir Putin has been systematically poisoned over the years by his closest inner circle, always in small doses which are not easily detectable, as administration of poison essentially produces no noise. The Siloviki gave Putin an extremely small lethal dose daily, about 1 millionth of a gram. The advantage of such poisoning is that it can appear accidental, because even Putin can get food poisoning. Indeed, that would explain his physical change as he looks very ill. For the Siloviki, getting rid of Putin became a high-priority project. The Siloviki in the Kremlin often had to walk a tightrope between some minimal actions to prepare Vladimir Putin for bad news and an effort not to offend or upset him with unpleasant realities that had resulted from his earlier political and military decisions in Ukraine. They will of course dismiss this Rich TVX News Network bulletin as always as “American psychological warfare.” Some Siloviki tried to sidestep the dangers of too much honesty by noting reports by Rich TVX News Network that pointed out problems with Milorad Dodik and Aleksandar Vučić and their loyalty to Putin. War will break out again in Bosnia—not now, but in a few months, perhaps somewhat later. We can do nothing to avert it. Even if we accept the entire list of Kremlin – demands concerning the Balkans, Kosovo and Serbia, the Kremlin will present new demands. However, Vladimir Putin still believes that he is able to destroy Ukraine, and that this outcome will allow his regime to remain in place.
The Truth Is, In The Kremlin, Frankness Is Disrespect
Russian state TV says daily that a nuclear strike is more probable than Kremlin losing Ukraine war, but the bitter truth is that Vladimir Putin fears very much escalation to nuclear weapons use, his tendency to be deterred was bolstered by his perceived conventional options. Vladimir Putin’s regime does not maintain any constraints on Putin’s power, and his disfavor could result from some innocuous misstep on the part of his Siloviki and Oligarchs or their failure to perform to his expectations. Vladimir Putin generally frightens everyone around him, but values loyalty above any other virtue. Speaking unpleasant truth to power was seldom acceptable in the Kremlin because it could be interpreted as questioning Vladimir Putin’s authority by pointing out flawed decision-making in the Ukraine and thereby displaying the limits of one’s loyalty. Instead, Vladimir Putin’s Siloviki and Oligarchs often watched for indications of Putin’s opinions on the situation in Ukraine and then fell all over themselves to agree with him. One Oligarch characterized this approach to the Rich TVX News Network as consistent with longstanding Russian views on acceptable social behavior. “The truth is, in the Kremlin, frankness is disrespect.”
The Siloviki Believe The Most Vicious Lies About The USA
No one living under the Vladimir Putin regime wants to show any disrespect to Putin. Another characteristic feature of the Siloviki clique is the dissemination of hatred toward the United States of America. The Siloviki believe the most vicious lies about the USA. At the conference table, however, Putin stated: “I do not believe that Ukraine could be freed from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and American control for a long period to come.” Putin insisted that “at least ten years of occupation” of Ukraine would be necessary. Putin’s statement is, no doubt, the upshot of conferences held in the Kremlin before his departure for Sochi, conferences which laid down Kremlin policy for Ukraine for the near future. The Kremlin has shifted most of the focus of its war to eastern Ukraine, aiming to “liberate” the region. Vladimir Putin is aware of the difficulties of the occupation of eastern Ukraine. Yet, there is also some danger that Siloviki who failed to warn Vladimir Putin of potential problems in the Ukraine could find themselves accused of duplicity and incompetence once Vladimir Putin becomes cognizant of any problems that had previously been minimized. As noted, the persistent climate of fear dictated the information that Siloviki felt comfortable providing to Vladimir Putin in ways that minimized the danger of upsetting him.
