Putin is ready for a big war in Crimea: a dangerous forecast appeared

Putin is ready for a big war in Crimea: a dangerous forecast appeared

Russian President Vladimir Putin is looking for an excuse to launch a major war on the Crimea, even if it would lead to self-destruction of his regime.

This is for "Krym.Realiyi" writes blogger under the pseudonym of Crimea Zarema Seitablayeva.

She notes that "the situation with the captured warships of Ukraine is an open signal that Russia is ready for a major war."

"It is clear that Russia is not ready for a big war through the so-called" DPR "and" LNR", but here for Crimea the Putin regime is ready for full-scale aggression", - the blogger is convinced.

In her opinion, this is confirmed by the tyrants of Russian officials. In particular, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry Sergey Lavrov, who claimed that in the event of a "provocation" on the administrative border with Crimea, Ukraine "will receive an answer - almost do not give up."

"If the war begins, then it will not seem to be enough for anyone." Russia still thinks that the Ukrainian army is all the same as in 2014, when the Yanukovych regime overthrew the combat capability of the country's armed forces, but now the situation is completely different. Ukraine has gained a modern army capable of effectively fulfilling its tasks, "writes the blogger.

However, Seitablaeva notes that the situation is warmed up by the "Russian hurray-patriots who, lying on the couch," write in the social networks that the Russian army was in a "time to" restore order in Ukraine, not even imagining the consequences of such a war.

"If it does not become the beginning of the Third World, it will still lead to sad consequences for Russia itself and, most likely, to its collapse ... And here the collapse of the Putin regime will be complete and final." The war with Ukraine awakens in itself Russia is such an excitement that Lavrov, or Putin himself, would seem to have left. But the problem is that the Putin regime, apparently, is ready to self-destruct, and therefore dangerous as never before, "said the blogger.

She notes that the war will begin precisely from the Crimea, because "it is not for nothing that the soldiers and armament have been plunged here, as they say, under an ovation".

"All the newspapers in Crimea are full of advertisements for recruiting a contract service to the Russian army, a feeling that the generals are ready to put all the young Crimeans under the gun." It looks like the Kremlin now looks for a formal reason to move its armada on the land of the Kherson region and beyond, adds a blogger.

At the same time, she believes that the Crimean Tatar people in the event of a war can wait for a new deportation.

"And this deportation will be, apparently, in the cold spots of Siberia, and it's terrible to even imagine waiting for our activists from already large lists unreliable for the regime," she summed up.

Cyril wrote a letter to Bartholomew calling for Ukraine not to give Tomos

Cyril wrote a letter to Bartholomew calling for Ukraine not to give Tomos



Moscow Patriarch Kirill (Gundiaev) wrote a letter to the patriarch of the universe, Bartholomew (Archondissos), in which he urged him not to grant autocephaly to the Local Church of Ukraine.

The text of the appeal was published on the site of the Russian Orthodox Church, reports Censor.NET.

"On the so-called" local council", which you convened and led the three, consisting of your representative, the self-styled" patriarch "(now referred to as" honorary") and the secular head of the Ukrainian state, were present only two of the 90 bishops of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church What you call a "local council" was the assembly of scholars under the umbrella of the Holy Church of Constantinople. What is this, if not the legalization of the Ukrainian split, which you publicly promised not to allow?" - said in a letter to Kirill.

According to Kirill, the Metropolitan of Vinnitsa and Barys Simeon and the Metropolitan of Pereyaslav-Khmelnitsky and Vyshnevsky Alexander do not represent the Moscow Patriarchate, therefore the council can not be called unifying.

He also assures that the Ukrainian authorities began to persecute the UOC-MP.

"Already, archpastors and the clergy in Ukraine, under fictitious acutenances, are being called into questioning, blackmailing, threatening close people, conducting searches in temples and settlements, putting pressure on families and children. The law came into force the other day, the purpose of which is to deprive the Ukrainian Orthodox Church on its behalf, so that under the guise of a "voluntary transition of communities" to forcibly seize its temples, do you see the unification of Orthodox Ukraine?" - wrote Kirill.

Cyril also threatened that in the case of the provision of autocephaly to Ukraine, the name of Bartholomew would be included in the list of the most evil universe patriarchs.

"Do not enter your honorable name in one list with such unchaste bishops of Constantinople as Nestorius, iconoclasts Anastasias, John VII and Theodotus, Uniates Joseph II, Mitrophan II Matervivets and Gregory III Mother," the head of the Russian Orthodox Church said.

"If you do in accordance with the intentions set forth in your letter, you will forever lose the opportunity to serve as the union of the saints of the Divine Churches, cease to be the first in the Orthodox world, which includes hundreds of millions of believers, and the suffering of the Orthodox Ukrainians that you have suffered by you will follow you at the Last Judgment impartial Lord, and will testify against Him before you.Ill pray with my whole heart that this should not happen. It's not too late to stop, "said Kirill.
