Fault Lines And Factionalism Escalate In Ukrainian Government

Zelenskii as the Servant of the People

Cooler heads seem to have had enough, especially in the military, since they’re the ones tasked with dying.

Written by Drago Bosnic, independent geopolitical and military analyst

Group mentality is an integral part of humanity. It is so ingrained in our minds that it has been the driving force behind nearly every change we have ever made, starting from cavemen to the current early stages of a space-faring civilization. This group mentality has been bringing together entire nations and civilizations for millennia. It has also been bringing them down. One example of the latter, extremely negative group mentality, is taking place right now, in Ukraine, or soon to be, former Ukraine, if cooler heads don’t prevail.

Ukraine has numerous groups with vested interests to push the country in a certain direction. One such group has been directly supported and pushed to power by the political West to turn Ukraine into yet another (neo)colony at the imperial periphery, which would also serve as a major thorn in the side of a geopolitical rival, in this particular case, Russia. Many smaller groups joined this one, but many increasingly more powerful subgroups are emerging within the current power structure, revealing serious fault lines in the current Ukrainian establishment.

Factionalism has become so prevalent, with president Zelensky (ab)using his power under martial law to ban any non-compliant political party, including major opposition parties which have long been seen as “pro-Russian”, although they are more neutral in reality. In such a toxic atmosphere, “traitors” are springing up everywhere. If you criticize the government, if you speak Russian, if you’re a soldier complaining about faulty Western weapons which are getting other soldiers killed, if you’ve posted “controversial” opinions (such as that Russian POWs should not be summarily executed), you’re a “traitor”.

There are many other ways in which you could become a “traitor”. Some could land you in prison, others might be much more consequential, even costing you your life, as was the case with many high-profile journalists or even members of the Ukrainian government who were accused of working for Russian intelligence and then extrajudicially executed. All of this contributes to the atmosphere of fear and distrust in Ukraine, a country which has effectively turned into a failed state. This is especially true now, when various interest groups, powerful oligarchs and criminals are all trying to take “their share of the cake” before the country crumbles.

These various factions are now taking as much loot as they possibly can. At the same time, many are willing to take the risk and wait for dozens of billions promised by the political West, so long they keep sending tens of thousands of Ukrainian men to certain death. Naturally, this isn’t a problem for such “Ukrainian elites”. After all, they’re neither Ukrainian nor elites, since they see Ukraine as a place to loot and then fly off to one of the offshore heavens in which they’ve placed everything stolen from the Ukrainian people. At this point, they’re fighting for scraps, as there is very little left to steal. Due to all this, cooler heads, or should we say “traitors”, seem to have had enough, especially in the military, since they’re the ones tasked with dying to make it all happen.

Vladimir Kornilov, director of the Center for Eurasian Studies, believes that the confrontation between various Kiev regime clans has escalated. “Now in Ukraine, the intraspecific struggle has escalated, which seems to have subsided with the start of the special operation. Political clans clashed among themselves, as a new round of bickering began. Zelensky felt that the visible unity that was forced to form after the start of the special operation is revealing its cracks,” the political scientist emphasizes, “Vzglyad” reports.

A military coup is brewing in Ukraine, as the opinions of the incumbent president and the commander-in-chief differ dramatically, and not for the first time. The “Moskovsky Komsomolets” reports that the popularity of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny, is growing by the day. After all, it is Zaluzhny who calls for retreating Ukrainian soldiers and saving their lives at a time when the president believes that “we must stand to the end no matter what”.

Experts talk about the possibility of a direct conflict between Zelensky and Zaluzhny. And the essence of the conflict is that Zaluzhny calls for the withdrawal of Ukrainian soldiers who are nearly encircled in Severodonetsk and Lysychansk, while Zelensky rejects this. Political scientist Sergei Markov notes that the former wants to preserve the viability of the army, while the latter is guided by political motives.

“Zelensky benefits from the Russian army now killing as many soldiers of the Ukrainian army as possible. For the population of Ukraine to hate Russians and Russia as much as possible. And this will give Zelensky that energy of hatred that will allow him to fulfill the main task of his American and British overlords – to make Anti-Russia out of Ukraine,” Free Press quotes Markov.

Political scientist and expert on interethnic conflicts Yevgeny Mikhailov agrees with this. On the air of the 360 TV channel, he said that Zelensky’s mistakes can lead to a military coup in Ukraine: the refusal to retreat in order to save lives, as well as the law on the extrajudicial execution of deserters.

“The task of a real commander is not to kill soldiers on the battlefield, but to complete the task while minimizing losses. Refusal of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine may result in a kind of rebellion, a confrontation between the military and the political administration. This can lead to a military coup, ” Mikhailov said.

At the same time, Zelensky’s position is supported only by those who follow military operations via the Internet, while sane people, including many regular Ukrainians, will take the side of Zaluzhny, because everyone understands that the army is not an endless resource. Now, the relationship between Zaluzhny and Zelensky is worsening. The military leader is not afraid to criticize the president. For instance, he was openly against the failed plan to capture Snake Island in early May. Also, it was precisely Zaluzhny who made it to this year’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world according to Time magazine.

Zaluzhny is 48 years old and has made quite a career for himself. He entered the Odessa Higher United Command School, after which he went through all the stages of military service. In 2005 he entered the National Defense Academy of Ukraine and graduated with a gold medal. Zaluzhny also graduated from the “Ivan Chernyakhovsky” National Defense University of Ukraine. In 2017, Zaluzhny received the rank of Major General. As of summer 2021, he has been appointed the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Group mentality is an essential part of humanity. Look how many deranged murderers and rapists a terrorist Russian president managed to convince to invade and destroy another country without a single provocation. Group mentality in Russia is pretty much braindead.

GreedyZionistRat wounded you big time Muh Ham Mad yer profit. heh heh

I hate to admit it but I’m enjoying watching you figuratively bleed – even just this little bit.

Your evident discomfort reminded me of a passage from Mein Kampf, “the only honest biography ever written by a politician”.

Here’s what AH had to say about creepy crawlers like you.

“The more I argued with them, the more I came to know their dialectic. First they counted on the stupidity of their adversary, and then, when there was no other way out, they themselves simply played stupid. If all this didn’t help they pretended not to understand, or, if challenged, they changed the subject in a hurry, quoted platitudes, which if you accepted them, they immediately related to entirely different matters, and then, if again attacked, gave ground and pretended not to know what you were talking about.

Whenever you tried to attack one of these apostles, your hand closed on a jelly-like slime which divided up and poured through your fingers, but in the next moment collected again. But if you really struck one of these fellows so telling a blow that, observed by the audience, he couldn’t help but agree, and if you believed this had taken you at least one step forward, your amazement was great the next day. The Jew had not the slightest recollection of the day before, he rattled off his same old nonsense as though nothing at all had happened, and, if indignantly challenged, affected amazement; he couldn’t remember a thing, except that he had proved the correctness of his assertions the previous day.

Sometimes I stood there thunderstruck.

I didn’t know what to be more amazed at: the agility of their tongues or their virtuosity at lying. Gradually I began to hate them.”

AH, Mein Kampf, Ch 3.

Of course by tomorrow none of this will have happened. You will already have re-written the script. That’s what horrid little liars like you do.

Adolf figured you “jelly-like slime” out over 90 years ago.

Jack

Do you think Adolf would spread his warm cum all over both of our faces at the same time?

Russians knowns how to play the game, they dont go to Ukraine without a reasson, and also US did change UKI goverment in 2014 without a reasson… You can pretend thats nothing happened, that they are just passing around to say hello but Russians arent fools, you cannot trick them, and if you trick them you should be careful because maybe they just let trick them in order to do accomplish another strategy.

You are as stupid as your false prophet was. An illiterate slave dealer who wanked over himself whilst wearing the garments of his child bride. Which is stated in your hate filled cult scriptures.

RealityOfWar

The Ukrainian Nazi regime has carte blanche from the west to imprison, murder and drive into exile all political opponents. So don’t hold out any hope of any political problems for Z-elensky. Nazi Ukraine is no different to Nazi Germany, they are murdering any one objecting to absolute subservience to Z-elensky and the West. That is why it is folly to think that de-Nazification can work just concentrating on the east. Without a plan to militarily to remove the western supported Ukrainian Nazis from power, there is little chance of short to mid term peace. Instead the Ukrainian Nazis will fight to the last Ukrainian in order to fulfil western needs and orders. Only over the longer term will Ukrainian people understand their son’s bodies are being used for western geopolitical games!

RealityOfWar Wrong, the fact is Russia will grind out the win and it will be costly to them. The truth is their air force has proven to be a joke. UAF have huge columns driving the roads in Adivka which is 5km over the border after 90 days still there. The arty is so inaccurate it will take months. One shell hits 700 meters from target Ukies dive in holes next ten hit 100s of meters away. Look at all the videos of UAF dug into corner hedge row and look at the markings around them. 700 missed rounds for every one on target. Russia still allows the west to send weapons over the river as Russia is either too stupid to bomb a bridge or they simply can not do it. Look at the stories around the MLRS the US sends Russian news and fan boys think its some grand victory that the US is sending them but says”they can be used to attack Russia” ya big win. The sixth round of sanctions was not passed! Ya big win you got punched in the face five times but hurt their hand on the sixth. The whole thing is a scam. Russian oil is being sold by third parties to the EU so they can claim embargo who do you think owns those third party trades???

Zelensky will be provided adequate warning and protection to flee to Miami or Tel Aviv by the US puppet master. They will also control this general clown who will be installed to save the day. This is all irrelevant in the end as Russia needs to stay strong and take Odessa. No Black Sea access for Ukraine and NATO. This is vital or they just end up in the same boat down the road.

Russia needs to defeat and demilitarize the whole Ukraine of the West will continue to dump its weapons systems in it. Notice that each time a new set of weapons systems are ” Donated” to the Ukraine but have little or no effect in stopping the Russians, the West escalates what they will send.

I agree and was actually thinking the same thing. Russia needs to take the whole country at this point because the West will just keep taking all these weapons in and will just continue to fight.

P.S.

“Russia needs to do this, and that”

– Russia is picking up her own dead and injured and wounded, as well as Ukrainian dead and injured and wounded because the Ukrainians do not even pick up their own dead and injured. Even that! Russia must do for them.

– Russia is feeding the people with emergency aid.

– Russia is rebuilding areas, farming, villages and cities to a functioning state (Unlike the US NATO and partners in Afghanistan for example).

– Russia is the only one that stood up against the odious Nazi ideology and its excesses against humankind, and again is clearing the world of that.

– Russia and China are calling out the hypocrisy underneath the ugly and foolish faces of all in the hegemonic declining powers selling lies, by every method that is possible. They mock the evil, they speak against it, they expose it, and they are and will fight against it. That is why the ugly and foolish-faced are running the “Cancel Russia” campaign because they are being driven into a corner and cannot stand it any longer.

Poland is already asking for the money sent to Ukraine to be funneled to Poland for management..Zelensky will have less and less power even w/o a coup. Banning all dissent, forced conscription, execution of retreaters, listening only his circle will just isolate himself by hate of own people making a coup inevitable and no one will cry or miss him

The sad thing is that if he does rise up as a hero for actual UKRAINIANS, he will be relentlessly punished for it. The West will swiftly turn against the failed police state in Kiev that they themselves created, shutting them out of Europe as quickly as they were ushered in. And Russia will not so quickly forgive the thorn in her side that has killed thousands and cost treasure with war spending and sanctions.

If Zaluzhny kills the Jewish clown, he will forever be a hero to the non-aligned world.

Because you’re on a website controlled by communist jews from russia. You still don t get that ? In USA you can speak freely, but also there the jews start to ban free speech. Horror is EU, nearly everything censored there too. Jews hate freedom of speech. Because Freedom of Speech is antisemitic/antijudaic, didn t you know that ???

Small hint, also most of the time I don t like what you state. If here you want post, it is easier to just post a phrase like jhjjjjsjjaj . Post it, and then afterwards edit/correct that writing and put in the real text, even including links if you want. This way no censorship here.

Guess CIA approach was so bad to Ukraine, they go full speed to accomplish the task without thinking what could go wrong… Ukraine would have been a though contendent to Russia if they had a real Marshall and patriot’s citizens in true unity all around the contry instead of a Clown and corruption everywhere… corruption has limits, and always leads to defeat (corruption can be helpful in some environments and be used only for a short time)
