Nowadays, there is a certain possibility of Russia invading Ukraine. So, the Russian aggression against Ukraine, conducted by Russian proxies since 2014, would be carried out by official armed forces of Russia at last. However, there have been strong indications that the conflict between the two countries was in many respects a collusion between the two corrupted governments. For example, an Ukrainian woman Natalya Yevtushok, who once served the Defense Ministry of Ukraine, told me that the annexation of Crimea was a result of the clandestine bargain between Russia and Ukraine. Therefore, the Ukrainian armed forces put up almost no resistance to the Russian troops, invading the peninsula.
My selfie with the late Mayor of Kharkiv Gennady Kernes was taken on April 28, 2018. In the background, the mayor’s crony Aleksandr Lebziak is about to light a cigarette, I guess. A colonel of the Russian Armed Forces Aleksandr Lebziak freely entered Ukraine in April 2018 and exited thereafter. He is a very special colonel, isn’t he? Because, President Putin’s financier Alisher Usmanov and formidable gangster Sergei Lalakin are among his cronies. By contrast, at the beginning of 2020 Ukrainian border guards denied a Soviet Russian movie star Larissa Udovichenko the entry to Ukraine. So, the peaceful actress was regarded by the corrupt Ukrainian officers as a possible threat to their country. On the other hand, they turned a blind eye on the top-ranking Russian officer, who comfortably visited Ukraine in the broad daylight, enjoying VIP treatment by the hospitable mayor. By the way, Colonel Lebziak is also on friendly terms with the Mayor of Kyiv Vitaly Klitschko. Thus, the flagrant hypocrisy of the alleged conflict is more than evident.
Of course, Colonel Lebziak is beyond the reach of pro-Russian Ukrainian border guards and security service, who put up no resistance to their Russian allies during the annexation of Crimea in 2014. But, in order to simulate anti-Russian activities they deny a Soviet Sharon Stone the entry to Ukraine.
