One statement reported on by FT basically says it all, making it clear that Russia is gearing up for World War III and there is nothing that can stop it at this point.
The initial story is about the recent news of a $50 billion judgement against Russia, and the details of that can be seen at the FT article (free subscription) and in the video below, but it is the last paragraph of the FT article about a statement made by a person close to Russian President Vladimir Putin, that really brings the reality of what is coming, home.
One person close to Mr Putin said the Yukos ruling was insignificant in light of the bigger geopolitical stand-off over Ukraine. “There is a war coming in Europe,” he said. “Do you really think this matters?”
That is what everyone has been gearing up for. That is why the Ukraine situation was set up, orchestrated and preparations are being made to pull out old war plans from the cold war era.
WW III is what all of it has been about and we were warned consistently that this would happen because when global economies are ready to crash, war is the option TPTB always fall back to.
