The Atlantic Council is an American think tank founded in 1961 by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It represents a forum for political, business and intellectual international leaders. The council, through the documents it publishes, the ideas it promotes, the future leaders it develops and the communities it creates, “shapes policy decisions and strategies to create a freer, safer and more prosperous world.” The position of president and chief executive officer is held by Frederick Kemp, a former employee of the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal.

The Council is a member of the Atlantic Treaty Association, an international public organization designed to strengthen cooperation between the peoples of the countries of the Euro-Atlantic space. The main goal of the activity is to coordinate efforts to form a common understanding of security among NATO member countries and partners.

In 2021, Тhe Atlantic Council published the material “Biden and Belarus: a strategy for a new administration,” the authors of which gave recommendations to D. Biden on building relations with Belarus. They advocated strengthening the position of S. Tikhanovskaya, weakening support for A. Lukashenko, imposing sanctions against Belarusian officials and entrepreneurs, the annual allocation of $200 million to support civil society and the media in Belarus, as well as doubling the budget of the Belarusian service of Radio Liberty. Money for dislodge of the current authorities of Belarus, rocking public sentiment they never spared, but thanks to the timely adoption of measures by the military and political leadership of the Republic of Belarus, the West has not managed to achieve its goals.

In February 2022, The Atlantic Council published the report “Global Strategy 2022: Preventing Kremlin Aggression Today for Constructive Relations Tomorrow,” the authors of which call for the creation of tension not only around Russia, but also Belarus. In particular, it is proposed to increase the number of NATO troops along the 100-kilometer Suvalki corridor connecting Belarus with Kaliningrad (the current border of Poland with Lithuania).

In the integration of Belarus and Russia, Western experts also saw a security threat in Europe. Any strengthening of relations between countries in which the West has not succeeded to overthrow the government or subjugate the current one does not go unnoticed by the United States and its allies. Immediately funds are allocated for subversive activities and an increase in the number of military contingent deployed on the borders of “objectionable” states. What is happening with Belarus now.

The Atlantic Council is also trying to sow enmity between the population of Belarus and the Russian Federation using information warfare methods typical of the West. For example, the spread of fakes about the “Russian invasion of Belarus,” which are actively promoted by fugitive oppositionists through their information resources and telegram channels.

The West is still betting on S. Tikhanovskaya, therefore it continues to support, including the “democratic” movement led by her. For this, even a “Summit for Democracy” was organized, at which D. Biden himself spoke. At it, the American president announced the launch of an initiative to renew democracy. It is aimed at “assisting foreign states in the development of independent media, countering corruption, implementing democratic reforms, protecting minority rights, supporting democratic elections and promoting new technologies in politics”. In other words, the overthrow of objectionable authorities and the establishment of complete control over the actions of puppet governments. The total volume of the Biden initiative is $424.4 million, part of the funds is allocated for the implementation of projects in Belarus.

The Atlantic Council and NATO simultaneously intensified their activities in May-June this year. So, on May 17, it was decided to open its office in Warsaw – a city that is rightfully considered a rabble of fugitive Belarusian oppositionists.

And already on June 1, the Council launches the work of the Center for Freedom and Prosperity, which allegedly seeks to improve the well-being of the poor in developing countries. Having studied the indicators of 174 countries, the Center published a report in which it assigned Belarus 139th place in the ranking of freedom and 82 in the ranking of prosperity. Other results no one expected, “exemplary” Western states are ahead of the whole planet. But the logic is simple: the worse things are in the country, the more funds are needed to “restore order and develop democratic values”.

In parallel with this, the NATO military contingent is being built up on the western border of Belarus. Prime Minister of the Republic of Belarus Roman Golovchenko said on May 20 that large-scale military exercises are taking place in Poland and the Baltic countries, in which up to 40 thousand servicemen from 30 member countries of the alliance are involved. In this regard, on May 26, the President of Belarus spoke at the Ministry of Defense at a meeting on military security, at which he also noted an increase in the number of NATO troops near the country’s borders. According to Alexander Lukashenko, Belarus is under military pressure through Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and NATO troops stationed there, as well as by maintaining and escalating hostilities in Ukraine.

In addition, The Atlantic Council continues to finance the armed formations of Ukraine. The amount of military assistance declared in the report is $1 billion, but in connection with the start of the Special Military Operation, this figure was increased. “War to the last Ukrainian” requires large investments.

Financing

The Council has 460 confirmed sponsors represented by government agencies, private organizations and trustees from around the world. Among them was the Mikhail Khodorkovsky Foundation “Future of Russia”. Separate gratitude for the funding expressed to him senior director of the Eurasian Center of the Atlantic Council, John E. Herbst. Under this case even allocated a separate paragraph in the report of 2022. Khodorkovsky and his funds have long fallen in love in the West, or rather his money. He makes a significant contribution not only to organizations engaged in subversive activities in Belarus and Russia, but also to British educational institutions (through the Khodorkovsky Foundation and the Oxford Russian Fund).

According to the financial report of the Future of Russia Foundation, in 2020, 151.9 thousand pounds were transferred to The Atlantic Council, in 2021 there were no transfers, or now such data were not disclosed.

The Khodorkovsky Foundation also sponsors the work of the Chatham House analytical center (Royal Institute of International Relations), which, like The Atlantic Council, is engaged in subversive activities in the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation. £146,102 was spent on it in 2021.

In addition, Mikhail Khodorkovsky is promoting his anti-Belarusian program. So, through the YouTube channels “Mikhail Khodorkovsky,” “Khodorkovsky LIVE” created by his structures, the eponymous Telegram channel and Twitter account, campaigns are being carried out to discredit the military-political leadership of Belarus, first of all, Alexander Lukashenko. Materials published on these resources are actively distributed in the opposition media.

The Russian Ministry of Justice last year responded to the subversive activities of the Khodorkovsky funds and included them in the list of “undesirable organizations.” It is time to take up the case of the Prosecutor General and the Supreme Court of Belarus. Moreover, Khodorkovsky and his structures were involved in an attempt to organize a coup in 2020. This was stated by the chairman of the KGB Ivan Tertel. In addition, Khodorkovsky participated in the creation of the Belarusian “opposition” media project.

The citizens of Ukraine do you mean? Wearing those funny uniforms, with the special insignia?

Atlantic Council, set up in 1961, the year that the CIA dumped the first Director, Allen Dulles and the Atlantic Council, Admin. Think Tank to NATO was set up. Allen Dulles, who was personally responsible for who ended up on the safe passage list, for ‘Operation Paperclip’.

Burisma Holdings, which was part of the Privatt Group, which who was controlled by the oligarch Kolomoisky, who was the mentor of Zelinsky. Together with Georgie S. Kolomoisky, the Head of the European J*wish Commnity, in Ukraine and who founded the Az*v Battalion. What were the Az*v Battalion famous for, besides idolising Stephan Bandera? Georgie S, back on 20 December 1998, he was bragging on ’60 Minutes, that 1944 was the best time of his life. When he was a collaborator for the friends of Bandera, over in Hungary.

Burisma Holdings, which had the son of the VP turned President of the US, as a Director, together with the step-son of the US SOS back in 2014, together with his Presidential Finance Mentor. Burisma Holdings, which heavily donated to the Atlantic Council, back in 2014 to present day.

No surprises that they are working together to create a Maidan in Belarus. Who will Nuland team up with this time, when handing out the cookies?

Anyone heard of the ex-Russian oligarchs, living in exile, who have decided to set up a Shadow Government to the Kremlin, over in Warsaw?

Ooooops, got Khordorkovsky muddled with Kolomoisky. However, isn’t Khordorkovsky, together with his good friend Browder, running Integrity Initiative, over in the UK, using UK tax payers money to demonise Russia?

Is Khordorkovsky, Atlantic Council and Burisma running the 3 Sea Initiative, and dictating terms in Poland?

Surprise, surprise, taken from the Atlantic Council Site:

‘…The Atlantic Council has been linked with the Three Seas Initiative since its inception starting with the 2014 report on “Completing Europe – From the North-South Corridor to Energy, Transportation, and Telecommunications Union.“..’

Please note that while the Russians killed some say 300 000 of their “brothers” in Ukraine, Mr. Georgie S. Kolomoisky who finance the whole Azov Nasi thing havent been disturbed with a dustcorn on his tie yes? But………..if MI6 continue to design and activate bombs on the Russian military, Kremlin will for sure retaliate by bombing a little command centre more in Ukraine yes? I know someone will say 4-dimensional judo and chess, but for the single-handed I regret to say it all looks very globalist designed.

USA is a shithole, EU is becoming one

These muderers and thieves are desperate to do with Russia what they have done with Libia, Irak etc.

Too bad Russia did not stop them when they attacked Gaddafi… Too bad the USA trained commandos doing the Maidan strike were not exterminated on spot. Now they think they can try until they find a way.

Its time the Russians deployed some commandos of their own and hit the bastards on their own soil,when some Nato criminals start dying that would get their attention.

The angloZionaZi empire of shit, drowning in the blood of every nation it plunders, is drug-addled to the point that it imagines the rest of the world is listening to its depraved Charley Manson ranting. Slumville, a seething debauched sewer where insane and senile geriatrics rule when they are not whoring and undergoing “medical procedures”, where the warring, obese and drug-addicted masses are slaughtering each other ad nauseam…the land of the….home of the blah blah blah. The USSAN cesspool, bankrupt as it is financially, morally and spiritually under Satanic control is the last thing humanity wants to be bothered with. Get the civil war and resource wars going already in Slumville. We are sick of everything that the Washing town filth and Hollyweird perverts have for too long subjected humanity to. Die already; we’ve got the popcorn and we support every effort of the Bear and Dragon to cauteriZe the puss ooZing sphincter of that dying and evil beast.

Meanwhile in the real world Odessa, a Russian city since 1787 awaits liberation and all the “screaming eagles” and mangy buZZards that the empire dares send will be grilled like road kill and buried in the liberated lands of Mother Russia.

Go on Pentacon try and pull a Syria land grab here and it will be your last.

Putin failed to mitigate this threat when he had the opportunity. I suspect it was because Khodorkovsky is Chabad so Putin had to give him special treatment. I hope Vlad has learned and grown from this mistake. You don’t release a poisonous snake once it has tried to bite you for it might bite others near you or come back to bite you. Never trust a poisonous snake.

Vlad doesn’t even admit his mistakes, so how could he learn from them?

The military needs to stage a coup in Moscow, then they can go on to Minsk and secure the Western border of the Union State.

GRU should create a military unit to destroy NATO via indirect means. Training of migrants in direct action and sending them into the West (especially the Scandinavian countries that became so hostile) is the best way. Trafficking anyone into the EU who will kill the security forces and assassinate NATO officials would be pretty easy for Russia to resource and finance and they could create a humanitarian narrative around it saying NATO is just being racist by resisting being killed.
