Fiona Hill – the shrill, Trump impeachment witness, alongside World Economic Forum grandee Angela Stent – gave something rather inconvenient away in their latest article for Foreign Affairs magazine. I have archived it here, for the non-subscribers like me.
Entitled “The World Putin Wants,” the pair of neoliberal regime bootlickers somehow manage to spend around 5,000 words introducing little new to the conversation about Russia and Ukraine, and predictably leaving critical context out of what is predominantly a “Russian man bad” argument.
Examples of this include:
- Referring to 14,000 deaths in Donbas without indicating that these were predominantly pro-Russian deaths at the hands of Ukrainians;
- Euphemizing the history of Neo-Nazi Stepan Bandera, claiming he simply “fought with the Germans against Soviet forces,” when in reality he was a key Hitler collaborator;
Incorrectly claiming Putin threatened to “fight to the last Ukrainian”. He actually said the West was prepared to fight to the last Ukrainian – a point that Hill and Stent have had to awkwardly correct since publication.
These so-called “Russia experts” manage, however, to slip a bombshell revelation halfway into their article. A revelation that should make aghast everyone suffering the gas price rises and food shortages the globalists blame on Vladimir Putin. They claim:
“According to multiple former senior U.S. officials we spoke with, in April 2022, Russian and Ukrainian negotiators appeared to have tentatively agreed on the outlines of a negotiated interim settlement: Russia would withdraw to its position on February 23, when it controlled part of the Donbas region and all of Crimea, and in exchange, Ukraine would promise not to seek NATO membership and instead receive security guarantees from a number of countries.”
Sounds like there was nearly a peace. And unless you’re a lobbyist for a major defense contractor, peace is good, right? As I wrote in my Newsweek article in January: “To reach what everyone wants, the answer is more elegant than war. The answer is to pursue peace and diplomacy with the end goal of bringing Russia to the table and using her as a bulwark against China.”
