U.S. And Co. Leading Mental War Against Russia: Defense Minister's Advisor

Click to see full-size image

Western countries, led by the United States, launched a so-called mental war against Russia – a new type of war, the consequences of which do not appear immediately.

This was stated by Adviser to the Minister of Defense Andrei Ilnitsky in an interview with the magazine “Arsenal Otechestva”.

According to him, Western countries do not enter into direct conflict with Russia, because this threatens them with consequences that are too severe due to Moscow’s nuclear weapons.

Therefore, in the next ten years, the likelihood of a direct armed clash with these states is excluded, says Ilnitsky.

“If in classical wars the goal is to destroy the enemy’s manpower, in modern cyber wars – to destroy the enemy’s infrastructure, then the goal of a new war is to destroy self-consciousness, change the mental – civilizational – basis of the enemy’s society. I would call this type of war a mental one, ”the adviser said.

According to him, “the course of the evolution of consciousness cannot be reversed, especially since the consequences of this” mental “war do not appear immediately, but only after at least a generation, when it will be simply impossible to do anything.”

Among the measures of resistance to the “mental war”, the adviser to the minister referred to the sovereignty of the Internet, training of personnel for information countermeasures in the military and civil spheres, the reboot of youth policy, as well as the resumption of an active and broad dialogue with the “conservative majority”.

In November 2019, the law on the “sovereign Internet” came into force in Russia. It obliges telecom operators to install special equipment on their networks, which is provided by Roskomnadzor and through which the regulator can control traffic in the event of threats to Internet security. In addition, the law obliges the owners of communication networks and Internet companies to take part in the exercises, which are held once a year.

A new round of Russian-American confrontation began on March 17, when US President Joe Biden gave an affirmative answer to the question whether he considered Vladimir Putin a “killer.” In response, Putin wished his American colleague good health and offered to hold the discussions live. The Russian Foreign Ministry claims that the United States has refused to negotiate.

This, however, is a sign of the direction of the wind changing. The voices in Russia that claimed of a Western “psi-op” were pushed to the background, and largely disregarded.

Now it appears that they are entering the mainstream, and now play a central role, potentially in future policymaking.

Basically, what this means is… To subdue the russian society from the inside, in an intent to westernise them based on influence.

The problem of having the U.S too close the russian borders is… that they are too close to Russia, even if not a single confrontation happens, the bad influence of the U.S reaches some extent of Russia (the western section)… which is a pretty bad thing if you ask me. copying some things (things that don’t work and things that are a bad influence for the youngs) soon or later will reach the country. The things is how the state reacts to it and what measures can be taken to counter this type of soft warfare(to some extent can be pretty problematic in the next couple of decades if not countered properly)


“The things is how the state reacts to it and what measures can be taken to counter this type of soft warfare” I still think Russian better option is waiting. Simply because US economy is about to collapse and precipitate fall of NATO and other criminals that accompany US in anti-Russian campaign

Keep dreaming, it is your country Russia that is on the brink of total disaster. Turkey has shown the utter uselessness of Russia’s military hardware in Syria, Libya and Nagorno Karabak short war (Iskander missile, defense system — all failed spectacularly). Israel continue to make a mockery of you in Syria; Russia’s GDP is the lowest it has ever been. Yet, not that I want that for Russia, since I have no ill will toward your country, but you are delusional to think that the US will crumble economically anytime soon.

“Turkey and israel has shown the utter useless of Russia military hardware all failed”…Ask those US puppets about a Turkish Hawk AD system and a Koral EWS destroyed in Al Wattiya base by KH-31 Kripton missile…about 60 Turkish drones shot down in Syria and Libya ( you can see photos in internet)…hundreds of Israeli cruise missile and guide bombs intercepted by Pantsir and BUK system…Ask Saudis about Irani drones and cruise missile ( Iranian copy of Russian KH-55) destroying Aramco and Ras Tanura refinerys protected by Patriot and short range air defense…Russia has 600BM of Forex reserve and 12% of debt….and has a huge market close to ( China)….


Corporate Capitalist U$A lectures the world about human rights yet 60 million Americans live in poverty and are on food stamps which is (larger than the whole population of Venezuela, Nicragua, Bolivia and Cuba combined)! 25 million American children reside in xtreme poverty, 35 million Americans live without health insurance, with widespread urban decay and yards filled with sewage and the most explosive and the deadliest coronavirus epidemic in the world. Imperialist U$A is today a violent bloody hellhole with hundreds of mass-murders every year and is more deadly than Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan and Somalia combined! Moreover, the pro-ISIS, pro-Al-Qaeda, degenerate and turbulent U$A has rampant levels of crime, extreme violence, very high rate of suicides, has the largest prison population on earth and hundreds of thousands are dying each year from suicides, homicides, opioid epidemic, mass-murder, abuse and police brutality! In fact, Corporate Capilatist U$A is so dangerous and and so violent that Amnesty International has issued warning recently to anyone who wants to travel there.

If they want to talk about mental wars then they must be told that there will be no war, in the US asylum the sick are in charge and the few in their right mind are sought by the FBI, the world is stretching a sanitary cordon around the West, this story of a thousand sexes outside the West is not having much success I think.

Doctor: “Now… say it, johnnyrotten: There will be no war. There will be no war” johnnyrotten: “But… I’m pretty sure there’s gonna be a war…” Doctor: “God damn it! Maybe a little tickle of our soft power will convince you. Light ’em up until his eyebrows fall out, boys. Clear…”

MK Ultra. Another US social program.

By the way, I just found a book on “Analysis” and “Critical thinking skills” for intelligence agents.

I’m wondering if I should read it, or if it will turn me into an instant retard …


This is nothing new, they have been doing it for decades. Radio free europe and the others, now they use baltics and ukkies and other russian speaking in the former USSR states to project their propaganda on Russia.

Dick Von Dast'Ard

Certainly completely mental.

Mental warfare against Russia by a nation led by senile fools. What a laugh.

Trap Is Not Gay

All these spams from the USA/Israel projecting the USA/Israel onto Putin are associated with that.

If they can’t win they project themselves onto others, so they don’t lose “support” (IF of course, some kept desinformed and lied to are the same of “supporters”).


Nothing new. The objective of war has always been to destroy the enemy’s will to resist. The means used to accomplish that may vary. Non-violent means have collateral benefits. Less physical destruction, for one.
