MOSCOW (Realist English). The real cause for conducting the special military operation (SMO) on the territory of the former Ukraine was the trampled dignity of Russia by the collective West, military analyst Andrey Devyatov believes.
“The trampled dignity is the real cause for the response by the New Russia of democratic choice to the collective West in military (military operations) and military—technical (weapons that have no analogues in the world) form, made in the form of the SMO in the Ukraine.
The success of the SMO strengthen the Russia that exists. The failure of the SMO with regard to demilitarization and denazification of the Ukraine (the West is intensively supplying Ukraine with modern weapons, and Russophobia is growing among the people) will lead to a change in the regime of the pro-Western liberal government of the outgoing society of oligarchic capitalism in the Russian Federation. The future—oriented regime of the enlightened eastern despotism of the Greater Eurasia project is coming.” the expert believes.
In his opinion, the special military operation is not a “holy war”:
“Its beginning was preceded by the “Ryabkov ultimatum” of December 15, 2021, addressed not to the Ukraine, but to the United States and NATO. The motive of this ultimatum of the Russian Foreign Ministry was the humiliation of the sense of national pride of the Great Russians by the West’s trampling of Russia’s state symbols in sports, sanctions in the economy, obstruction in diplomacy, and of the country’s security in the military sphere. We emphasize that the initiative to return the dignity of a great power to the peoples of Russia by violence belongs to the Kremlin.”
Devyatov notes that although the special operation looks like protecting Russia’s interests through the control of buffer territories and the supply of the Dnieper water to the Crimea, “ultimately, it is about protecting the traditional values of people who speak and think in Russian from the invasion of evil transhumanism.”
“Where the supreme commander—in-chief [Vladimir Putin] is trying to look like the last defender who picked up the sword of the spirit that fell out of the hands of the authorities during the convergence with the West, perestroika and liberalism,” he added.
According to his forecasts, ultimately the transformation of the country will mark the restoration of the trampled dignity of Russia.
On February 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that all this time Moscow had been interested in the implementation of the Minsk agreements, since this document was the result of a compromise. The Head of the State added that the Minsk agreements no longer existed.
On February 24, the Supreme Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Putin announced the start of a special military operation of the Russian Armed Forces in the Ukraine. Its goals were called “demilitarization and denazification of the Ukraine.”
