It’s now a whole week since the failed Prigozhin coup ended and a full week of digging deeper to delve into what really happened based on subsequent developments unfolding in its aftermath. Speculation is off the charts, largely determined by media bias and analytical frame of reference. Western propagandists in corporate media consistently insist that Putin’s hold over Russia has been weakened significantly and, as a result, he is far more vulnerable to yet more unrest than ever before during his entire 20 years in power. A July 1st Guardian headline reads “Putin looks weaker than ever but his opponents should expect vengeance.” The latter reference to Putin vengeance is cautioning the world to brace itself for the coming hell to pay through wider war. Immediately, the Western media onslaught quoting “expertise” of countless so-called authorities and think tank pundits all unanimously claiming Putin has lost considerable authoritarian control over his sprawling land mass nation spanning 11 time zones.
Immediately following the coup, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken pounced on opportunity during NBC Sunday’s Meet the Press to spew his two-cent rhetoric:
What we’ve seen is Russia having to defend Moscow, its capital, against mercenaries of his own making. So in and of itself, that’s extraordinary. And in so doing, we’ve also seen rise to the surface profound questions about the very premises for this Russian aggression against Ukraine, that Prigozhin surfaced very publicly, as well as a direct challenge to Putin’s authority. So, I think we’ve seen more cracks emerge in the Russian façade. It is too soon to tell exactly where they go and when they get there. But certainly, we have all sorts of new questions that Putin is going to have to address in the weeks and months ahead.
Reading from the same Western puppet script, German vassal Olaf Scholz repeats the “cracks” theme:
I do believe he [Putin] is weakened as this shows that the autocratic power structures have cracks in them and he is not as firmly in the saddle as he always asserts.
In so many words, Joe Biden’s immediate response to Moscow was, “Hey, don’t look at me, the US had nothing to do with your internal coup.” Again, it’s the job of all the Western puppets following the same masters’ dictation to lie virtually 100% of the time to the public. So, it’s a very safe bet that over the many months of Prigozhin’s bickered complaints airing Russia’s “dirty laundry” before the world in his personal squabble against Moscow’s top military leadership that Western intelligence would definitely seize opportunity to further divide these widening “cracks” inside Russia.
Even while the insurrection was still in process last Saturday June 24th, astute military analyst Scott Ritter raised his contention that both UK and US intelligence were working covertly with Prigozhin, likely promising him support that in the end failed to arrive. The disgruntled Wagner Group leader had been deemed a ripe target for internal divide and conquer exploitation, actively enlisting, promoting and supporting the planned revolt. Virtually nothing in this world simply unfolds organically on today’s geopolitical grand chessboard stage, typically schemed and plotted months or years in advance of its date of execution. Since West’s priority #1 for many years has been to oust Putin from power and implicated by US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s April 2022 admission, the goal in Ukraine is to “weaken Russia.” Thus, with near certainty Western intelligence has sought to exploit this ongoing Prigozhin feud ultimately with aim to foment Putin’s downfall.
The same way that the US Navy knew less than two hours after that Titan submarine launch that it had already imploded, yet deliberately withheld it from the public for nearly a week, the same pattern holds for this failed Russian coup. It’s been confirmed that US intelligence was fully aware of Prigozhin’s planned armed rebellion weeks in advance, and that even US Congress leaders were briefed.
On Tuesday June 27th, the New York Times claimed that Russian General Sergei Surovikin had prior knowledge of Prigozhin’s plan. General Surovikin commanded Russian forces in Ukraine for three months from October 2022 until January 2023 until he was replaced by General Valery Gerasimov. But on Wednesday June 28th an article written by Moscow based American political analyst Andrew Korybko entitled “Be Very Skeptical Of US Intel Claiming That Surovikin May Have Helped Plan Prigozhin’s Coup” referred to the New York Times article published the day before conceding that “American officials have an interest in pushing out information that undermines the standing of General Surovikin.” Korybko wrote:
It [the NYT’s latest report] appears aimed at making Russians think that General Surovikin is guilty so that President Putin feels pressured to remove him, which that outlet predicts ‘would undoubtedly benefit Ukraine, whose Western-backed troops are pushing a new counteroffensive that is meant to try to win back territory seized by Moscow.’
Korybko notes how a simultaneous flurry of Western media headlines falsely plant the impression that:
President Putin remains at risk of being overthrown by his armed forces, which is nothing but an artificially manufactured information warfare narrative designed to sow doubts about his leadership.
How Putin chooses to handle Russia’s two top military leaders Shoigu and Gerasimov targeted in the coup remains to be seen, although the internet website WarNews247 reported on the day of the coup that it’s likely that Putin will replace Shoigu and Gerasimov with more hardline hawks within 3-6 months. The site posted a February 2023 article alluding to the high probability of a major shakeup at the top. Prigozhin had been very critical of the slow progress of this war and urged Russia to harness its full military prowess to get the job done in Ukraine sooner than later, and after Wagner’s heroic success overcoming strongly entrenched Ukrainian forces in Bakhmut after 8 months of fierce fighting, Prigozhin sentiment appealed to a growing segment of the Russian population sharing his sense of urgency to win the war. Placing more aggressive leaders in charge willing to utilize Moscow’s higher-powered weaponry and skilled manpower to initiate multipronged offensives to finish off the Ukraine army appears to be what may likely be coming, if not interrupted by the West’s all-out world war, which looms ever larger each passing week.
This same WarNews247 site also predicts that the elite units of the Wagner Group that followed Prigozhin to Belarus is now preparing to launch one of Russia’s offensives south from Belarus into northern Ukraine to drive a wedge severing Kiev’s supply line cutting off Western weapons flowing south into Ukraine from Poland. Stationed in Belarus only 100 km (61 miles) from Ukraine’s capital, this Wagner contingent is said to likely attack Ukraine’s northern Galician region that includes the cities Lutsk, Lviv and capital Kiev. The rest of the Wagner private military company is scheduled to be infused into the regular Russian military.
It’s been suggested that this entire coup may have been staged by Putin and Prigozhin, playing Western intelligence for the easily misled fools they are. Knowing that Prigozhin’s publicly aired growing discontentment, culminated with his subsequent coup had to play as sweet music to spook ears of the West as this entire scenario could have all along been a deceptively convincing con. According to a Monday June 26th Gateway Pundit article:
Hacker Kim Dotcom has offered his take on the ‘Wagner Coup’ in Russia, intimating that Wagner boss Yevgeny Prigozhin may have collected billions from the CIA to stage a coup, and then aborted the coup.
A number of sources have accused Western intelligence services of playing a part in the Russian coup. In addition to Scott Ritter, Georgia GOP Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, all have either suggested or accused “foreign services” to be directly involved and that Prigozhin had the full backing of the Western intelligence community, from Ukraine, NATO, UK and US. During last Saturday’s coup, Kim Dotcom tweeted:
This started as a power struggle between Prigozhin and (Russian Minister of Defense Sergei) Shoigu. In the beginning of the Special military operation Shoigu and his team made mistakes and Prigozhin became of strong critic of Shoigu. Prigozhin then had success in Bakhmut with Wagner Group presenting himself as a better military leader than Shoigu… Western media claims this is an attempted coup against Putin. That’s nonsense. The popularity of Putin within Russia and in the non-western world has never been higher. However this war between Prigozhin and Shoigu is an unwelcome distraction for the Kremlin and the most likely outcome will be the arrest or termination of Prigozhin.
The Prigozhin grievances against Shoigu and Gerasimov mounted over time with allegations that his Wagner Group was never adequately supplied proper ammunition and weapons. Prigozhin was opposed to Russia’s two top leaders’ overly cautious, too slow progress during the 16 months of war, to Prigozhin demonstrating their apparent incompetence. Plus, Shoigu’s refusal this year to renew Wagner’s rather profitable contract (Putin admitting Moscow paid Wagner over $1 billion this last year), and that his Wagner private mercenary forces would be disbanded and integrated into Russia’s regular army. The bottom-line is Prigozhin all at once would be denied his command, his mercenary army and continued prominent status, not to mention gobs more money. Convinced Shoigu and Gerasimov had routinely undermined him, never giving him his proper due for his and his Wagner’s heroic accomplishments and sacrifice on the battlefield (up to 30,000 killed during the bloody Bakhmut campaign), the narcissist’s growing resentment rendered him vulnerable to Western intelligence, in recent months likely courting and supporting his planned insurrection, enticed by the promise of both a large cash reward and continued protection. The Gateway Pundit concludes:
Kim Dotcom then posted this meme suggesting the $6.2 billion for Ukraine that Pentagon accountants ‘discovered’ in June was actually pocketed by Prigozhin in return for his aborted coup attempt.
Putin expressed a sense of both personal and national betrayal upon learning of Prigozhin’s armed rebellion. At one time oligarch Prigozhin was considered Putin’s chef, and his lucrative contract providing food services for Russia’s armed forces was also recently not cancelled. Despite being considered a close Putin ally, Prigozhin’s growing feud against Putin’s two top military leaders, apparently prompted him to plot what he saw as justifiable revenge, not directed against Putin per se, but forcing him to take necessary action selecting more aggressive military leadership to expedite leading Russia to decisive victory.
Rather than see the failed coup as a sign of Putin and Russia’s unifying strength to rapidly deal with a potentially serious internal threat and crisis in an effective, decisive and bloodless manner as a sign of Putin strength and national solidarity, Western media predictably chose to view the glass half empty, focusing on negatively portraying the incident as “proof” of Putin’s growing weakness and tenuous hold on power. Yahoo News released an article on Monday June 26th entitled, “Is this the beginning of the end for Vladimir Putin?” It’s more wishful thinking fantasy than remotely close to reality.
The Western matrix media script can never tell the truth because it would unveil its pervasive trail of lies and deception that legitimizes the Deep State cabal’s inherently illegitimate criminal system. That said, there are Russian critics among its populace that expected last year’s February incursion in Ukraine to produce instant results. Putin again has gone out of his way to minimize collateral damage, attempting to prevent accidental killing of fellow Slavic people comprising Ukraine’s civilian population. Putin’s caution to spare Ukrainian lives has inadvertently caused higher risk for his own forces. That rarely if ever gets mentioned in mainstream media.
When one considers the West so far has deploringly squandered 170 billion euros ($185 billion USD) poured into the losing cause of the Ukraine bloodbath, while both Kiev and the West are quickly being destroyed as a premeditated Satanic mass human blood sacrifice, people are growing angry enough to demand that no more money and weapons be wasted on Ukraine. Weeklong riots and insurrection in France against the Macron regime have now spread to Brussels, home of the EU and NATO. In a short time, all of Europe and North America will be embroiled in mass revolt against their treasonous puppet leaders.
The masses have realized that everything put out by the Western media and puppet governments is completely fake and a lie, controlled by Satanic worshipping bloodlines growing evermore nervous over losing control and power as more of their criminal truth gets exposed. If you keep the masses in the dark, confused, fearful and not knowing what to believe, it breeds more clueless, passive impotence. But the controllers’ tactics are not working so effectively as angry abused crowds are becoming more unruly and desperate. The predatory hunters are becoming the hunted by growing numbers of the population that are fighting back for their very lives. Tragically, this will unleash increasing deadly force. And as conditions grow more dire and dangerous, the masses will grow more violent in retribution. Truth is the demons’ enemy as they know that they cannot survive if an empowered awakened population rises up in massive revolt seeking justice in solidarity. That’s why every WMD is now being unleashed against the people these days, increasingly promoting the Satanists’ genocidal agenda to drastically depopulate the planet.
