To put it bluntly, Russia/Putin seems to have gone totally mask off now. Russia moving mass troops west from the Far East means Xi Jinping has Putin's back on this. This is the beginning of a new realignment in geopolitics, and it's extremely worrying.

Could you expand on that? Why does the troop movement signal Jinping's approval?

That's a stretch. If China has eyes on bits of Russia. It would absolutely benefit them for Russia to get into it Europe and get their economy beaten up. Shit if Putin were to fall in the face of a massive cluster fuck, that would be the perfect time to get their annexation on. Nobody could stop them and who is going to go to bat for Russia anyways?

And in the next few years we will find out if America will be joining them.

This is indeed worrying.

I wouldn't be surprised if the CCP takes the opportunity to settle with Taiwan if Russia invades Ukraine. It would be a huge power move leading to a major realignment without needing to officially declare war, let alone a mutual defense treaty between the two counties. And it would catch the world completely off guard, let's face it, china would control Tapei in 24 hours if they committed.

I'm hoping this is all a bluff.

Reddit is such an echo chamber, I called this ages ago, China has a lot to gain to align with Russia especially on front against America and Europe.

This is the best tl;dr I could make,

Ukraine was hit by a massive cyberattack on Friday warning its citizens to "Expect the worst," and Russia, which has massed more than 100,000 troops on its neighbor's frontier, released television pictures of more forces deploying in a drill.

Russia denies plans to attack Ukraine but says it could take unspecified action unless demands are met, including a promise by the NATO alliance never to admit Kyiv.Ukrainian authorities were investigating the huge cyberattack Friday, which hit government bodies including the ministry of foreign affairs, cabinet of ministers, and security and defense council.

Russia did not immediately comment but has previously denied being behind cyber attacks on Ukraine.

Former President Trump, who described himself as being tougher on Russia than anyone in human history (including Abraham Lincoln), was quoted as saying:

“My people came to me, [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me and some others saying they think it's Russia. I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

“I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today”

This is definitely not good news. Russia appears to be escalating its aggression against Ukraine, and now the Ukrainian government is apparently being hit with a massive cyberattack. This could have serious implications for the country and its people.

They are waiting official written response regarding their proposal on EU security.

It's obvious they don't want NATO base with rockets on 100 km distance from Moscow. It's also obvious for Stoltenberg, but we all see what's going on.

This isn’t good, hopefully it doesn’t get out of control like the NotPetya attack.

That accidentally took down Maersk, the giant ocean shipping company.

Isn’t this military tactics 101 knock out communications before moving in?

Those things usually happen in tandem, if it was going to happen it would have already.

Most of the comments are longer than the article posted here. I did enjoy reading your thoughts though.

Posturing and nothing more. The Russians have far to much to lose by initiating an expanded and full out ground war, it's simply not going to happen.

If he thinks it will boost enough of his base support he may go through with it.

Putin is actually doing this because he feels threatened.

When Ukraine overthrew their previous president (who was extremely pro Russia) and replaced him with a pro European leader he began worrying that NATO would bring the Ukraine in, and then Ukraine would agree to have military bases on Russia's doorstep.

What is most worrying about this, is that this isn't the usual proxy war tactics where they "help" another nation. This would be a straight up invasion by Russian troops. that would prompt a similar response by western powers and you get WW3

How exactly is Russia threatened by a defensive alliance?

I wonder if foreknowledge of this was why Russian commodities stocks dipped severely yesterday. This looks pretty serious.

17 :Anonymous2022/01/14(Fri) 15:06:40ID: hsmwo3x

I'd say invasion is imminent.

“Ukrainian! All your personal data was uploaded to the public network. All data on the computer is destroyed, it is impossible to restore it,” said a message visible on hacked government websites, written in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish.

What I fail to see here is whether the 'attack' is like the one that keeps getting on the frontpage where the 'hacker' used file upload system to upload files generate links that no one knows. And then personally write articles on certain tabloids and post it on reddit to farm karma.
