Since imperial times, Russia has been run by a few hundred families: the ‘Siloviki’. They control most of the wealth via a system of cronyism. This system requires the cooperation of civilised democratic countries. These people send their children to school in London, Florida, Switzerland etc. They own multiple $billions worth of property, investment and companies, whose listed directors are cronies and family members of the Siloviki.
Abramovich alone; a right hand man of Putin, has $billions in London, including CFC.
All this money should be seized and paid to the 15,000 families of Ukrainians murdered by Russia. Any remaining cash should be given to the Ukrainian army.
The City of London and Wall St are flooded with Russian money. The ruling elite, oligarchs, organised crime, the spooks and the military bosses are all interchangeable and work as one entity.
The EU and Nato will do nothing to counter Russia because both organisations are crawling with Russia lackeys.
In Europe, only Britain, Poland, Pribaltika, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia are openly opposed to Russian imperialism.
The Budapest Memorandum required its signatories to honour the integrity of Ukraine and its borders. As of now, all signatories have reneged. Which to be expected from a criminal regime like Russia, but is not expected from the likes of Britain and America.
It is much less costly in blood and treasure to defend land that is under threat than to take back what has already been thieved. The signatories have had seven long years to make Ukraine impregnable from further attack, but they chose to do nothing.
Putin wants Alaska, which also has lots of Russians there. But Alaska is protected; it’s as simple as that.
Britain and America must build permanent air bases and logistical supplies centres throughout Ukraine. They must also install a modern SAM system.
All commercial flights must be banned between Russia, America and Britain. All diplomatic and trade relations must be cancelled.
If the above was implemented, the occupiers would be gone in days rather than weeks.
