(Liberty Bell) – It has been really difficult to figure out exactly what is going on in the Russia-Ukraine conflict. We know that things are definitely not what they appear to be and that Ukraine is not some innocent victim of Russian aggression.
We know that there are US-funded biolabs in Ukraine and we know that Ukrainian scientists have been working on bioweapons that have the potential ability to target ethnic groups. Clearly, Russia sees this as a threat and why wouldn’t they?
Many Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin, have said that they are trying to remove the Nazis from Ukraine and if Ukraine possesses genetic bioweapons, it would certainly appear as though there are Nazis in Ukraine.
Not to mention that there are many parts of Ukraine loyal to Russia and many Ukrainians have spoken out against their own corrupt government. The ties between the corrupt Ukraine government and Joe Biden and his family can’t be ignored, of course.
So, there’s more going on than the establishment media here or in Ukraine will admit.
The reality is there is still a war going on and both Russians and Ukrainians are putting their lives on the line for the causes they believe in but one retired Russian military colonel isn’t very optimistic.
Mikhail Khodarenok, a retired career officer in the air defense component of the Russian military, spoke frankly Monday during an appearance on Russia-1, a major television channel owned by the Russian government.

“You shouldn’t take informational sedatives,” said Khodarenok to anchor Olga Skabeyeva, referencing claims of dramatic victories over the Ukrainian military from Kremlin propagandists, according to the BBC’s Russia editor Steve Rosenberg.
“You hear reports about a moral and psychological breakdown among the Ukrainian armed forces… To put it mildly, this is not true.”
Khodarenok discussed Russia’s unfortunate geopolitical position in the world right now as a result of what the world perceives to be an aggressive power move to take over Ukraine.
“The biggest problem with our military and political situation is that we are in total geopolitical isolation.”
“The whole world is against us, even if we don’t want to admit it. We need to resolve this situation,” said the retired colonel, in a rare call for the end of the war on Russian state television.
Khodarenok referenced a new Lend-Lease program authorized by the United States Congress which will arm and equip the Ukrainian military. He admitted this posed a serious threat to the Russian military.
Typically, criticism of the Russian military is strictly prohibited thanks to the government’s control of the media but Khodarenok appears to feel it’s necessary to tell the Russian people the truth. The circumstances are dire.
Putin claimed in February that he expected Ukraine to submit to Russian occupation within days of the initial invasion but instead a war was started that has been going on for months with no end in sight and Russia having the disadvantage.
It was Putin’s intention for the Ukrainian military to turn on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy so that Russia could install a regime and prevent Ukraine from joining NATO and the European Union.
However, that strategy failed, despite overwhelming support for Putin in several parts of Ukraine. The death toll has reached into the tens of thousands and is still climbing.
Meanwhile, western countries continue to assist Ukraine by sending weapons and massive amounts of money.
Hopes of resolving the conflict diplomatically ended in April and now it seems the only option is to fight it out.
Things aren’t looking good for Russia. Now that they’ve kicked what’s turned out to be an unpredictable bee-hive, they have no choice but to fight regardless of their disadvantages.
