Having bought into Zelensky’s leg of the European tour for WW3, the Greek government surpassed all others promoting the Azov wing of the Ukronazi army just before Mariupol fell to the combined Russian and Donetsk forces and its main military units were defeated.
In one of those ironies that history likes to play on politicians those of the self-styled ‘democratic arrow’ (Greek parties that campaigned for the imprisonment of retro fascists Golden Dawn) brought Zelensky with a pre-recorded speech into the Greek Parliament and he in turn brought in an Azov combatant of alleged Greek heritage, proving beyond any reasonable doubt as noted in a previous piece that Greece is a lost NATO cause.
When Pyatt stated that the best thing since sliced bread is the Greek Premier Mitsotakis and he should be exported to the US, what came to mind was precisely that, when another US foreign policy asset Saakashvilli of Georgia after threatening Russia during the 2008 Beijing Olympics ended up exiled in the USA and after the Pyatt-Nuland roadshow took over Ukraine moved into Odessa in to become Mayor of the historic town. Obviously Saakashvilli doesn’t have the almost eight decade long relationship like the Mitsotakis clan, but not for not trying hard enough, it’s just that the era of being a US quisling isn’t really beneficial anymore and ends up creating more problems than providing solutions as he is now pleading for US help to get him out of a Georgian gaol.
The traditional concept of the banana republic was the US backyard of Central America, i.e. Honduras and Guatemala, but post-war Greece is the European banana republic par excellence, having agreed to both be the first testing ground for chemical warfare by US napalm during the Greek civil war in the late 1940’s, the chemtrail saga of our era and Big Pharma’s covid experimentals in the form of Pfizer and Modena jabs.
Having bought into Zelenskys leg of the European tour for WW3, the Greek government surpassed all others promoting the Azov wing of the Ukronazi army just before Mariupol fell to the combined Russian and Donetsk forces and its main military units were defeated. When Zelensky quoted the chant ‘Freedom of Death’ of the 1821 Greek Revolution we were supposed to be impressed as if a NATO bantustan has anything ever to do with freedom not simply death.
Demos in support of Russia
The first signs of splits within the Greek body politic is when a demo led by cars with Russian and Greek flags went through the centre of Athens and various Ukronazi hoodlums tried to disrupt it. Railwayworkers also blockaded exports of munitions to Ukraine signalling disruption in the 24/7 media pro-Ukraine coverage.
A rally was held in a theatre where Greek origin Ukrainians from Donetsk described the appalling conditions they had to be put under and even the last two journalists still employed by the Greek media in Moscow have tried to be objective and have suffered a barrage of attacks. One cannot officially question any aspect of this conflict for the narrative is absolutely one sided more than any other conflict prior, ex-Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya or Syria. Russophobia or more precisely Bidenitis is now the only show on the road, to the detriment not only of the Greek economy, but the tourist sector which is essentially the last sphere of economic activity.
Russian citizens accounts, those that have bought properties in Greece and aren’t oligarchs have been frozen by Greek banks, one million tourists can’t arrive and at the same time Greece holds tourist junkets with Turkey whilst criticising them for not imposing sanctions on Russia. Where logic ends Greek politics begin.
A Greek businessman residing in Russia openly calls out Mitsotakis he destroyed us and is destroying the Greek communities in Russia by aligning them with a pro-Kiev stance. The businessman stated he watches three networks, Russian Ukrainian and Greek and he has friends behind all the divides. He refers to the fake news eg. the Bucha incident and states how can the Mayor of Bucha declare he was happy the Russians left at the same time as they allegedly had bodies piled up in the streets. He also said he saw a video of a Russian speaker been brutally murdered in a mafia style killing involving genitals. Finally he added the majority of Greeks in Mariupol consider the Russian forces to be peacemakers and friendly.
In the meantime newspapers like Stohos put on their front cover that Russia pays Greek 1500 Euros monthly for pro-Russian propaganda. It would be amazing to find them as the number of publicly known pro-Russian serving politicians in the Greek Parliament are zero, the number of publications that are pro-Russian are also near zero.
Russian Support of Greece in the Modern Era
The rise of Russia and the terminal decline of the Ottoman Empire brought Greece into the modern era and Russia did more than most to help bring it about as it was mutually beneficial. In eras gone by studies were made one came to myself by accident and it needs repeating only for those who assume we live in a dystopian year zero of mass media Russian disinformation campaign where the past is erased, the present is made up and the future is made up with piles of bodies.
Peter the Great opened up Russia to the Greeks and traders arrived set up the supply of shipping by creating outposts where Russian ships could dock and re-supply on the Greek islands of Hydra, Spetses, Psara when they were all under Ottoman rule. In a few years the Greeks were able to gain a foothold for the shipping trade between Russia and the West and the trade of the West and the far East and all this due to Russian protection after the ending of the Russo Turkish War of 1768-74 ending in the The Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca
The consequences of the above Treaty led not only to the economic development of Greek speaking areas and the rise of their militancy with an increased consciousness for liberation against the tyranny of the Ottoman Empire (p80)
Odessa became the headquarters of the Friendly Society which was set up for the purposes of the Greek Revolution and the shipping merchant class became the backbone of this new movement.
Who is Nuland?
Nuland is from the bankrupt US generation that set up shop in Moscow in the Yeltsin era and tried to transform Russia into a US vassal state. They brought Russia into NATO as an observer but obviously the aim was just a show. Event in Yugoslavia hit Russia hard as it was the pretext for the break up of Russia with Russias agreement. The bottom line is if they couldn’t devour Russia when they had the upper hand they aren’t gonna be able to do much now they are down, in particular after the retreat from Afghanistan. The fact that Nuland straddles all US administrations shows that US foreign policy doesn’t really have party political divisions. Its concerns are linked to the Military Industrial Complex and its desires at any point in time.
A protégé of Strobe Talbot who made this infamous statement in 1992,
“In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.” (Time) yet now they are concerned about the alleged national sovereignty of …Ukraine almost three decades later.
The Project for a New American Century was one of Nulands pet loves alongside NATO both for which she worked for and she is married to Robert Kagan another PNAC war hawk.
During the Trump era which signified a geostrategic retreat from Empire solidified under Biden, the following statement was made:
“When we withdraw and say it’s every nation for itself, you open the door for countries dissatisfied with their territorial position and influence in the international system — or with the system itself.” (Nuland)
which signifies that retreating isn’t what we are about as we want a one world order and us on top.
The Ukrainian conflict is music to the ears of the military industrial complex as it can start to flog its weapons to the whole of Eastern Europe once they shed all the old soviet weapons having handed them over to Ukraine for Putin to blow them up. So from the US standpoint its always a win win scenario even when everyone else loses. But losing the petro dollar as a backbone of a global reserve currency implies the value of the dollar will disproportionally fall alongside its status and if the US military is unable to back it up, US interests will be questioned everywhere as they are being done in Taiwan, Iraq, North Korea etc.
Crying over spilt milk
One reads reports that the dependency on Russian gas is anything between 30-70% for the Greek economy and now they are complaining about Putins insistence on charging for rubles. Once a contract ends you can decide what you want unlike in the Greek energy utility market whereby they have invented retroactive contracts out of the blue and households and small businesses are getting stung by different rates than the ones they signed up for and being told they were on another contract they never signed up for thus doubling and trebling the actual rate to pay.
If Putin was more serious he should have introduced retroactive contracts just like the Greek government has allowed the day after one minor sanction hit the government. Let them then find alternative sources of fossil fuels or shut down their economies, either which way in an integrated globalised economy one can’t hit the other without the other affecting your as well. The audacity is so ridiculous that it has no limits. How dare Russia charge for its products in its national currency! If you don’t like it don’t buy it, like Orban said wear a jumper. Don’t put on any heating, turn no factories electricity on and go back to the stone age with a big smile. Russia doesn’t have to sell energy to countries that are providing military arms to defeat or inflict damage to the country.

The Anglo-American axis powers that are running Zelensky aren’t dependent on Russia as much (mostly the US with fertilizer exports) so they can run their mouths tirelessly but the EU following them is an absolute economic and social hara-kiri and Nulands phrase of Fcuk the EU is being implemented now.
What will millions do if they are forced into unemployment and they also don’t have money for heating and eating? Blame Putin? You gotta be kidding. The EU in order to survive has to break up and make country by country alliances with Russia and come under its nuclear umbrella after having disbanded NATO. Anything short of that will mean a decade of conflict, starvation and mass immiserisation.
