Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is calling for Joe Biden to visit Ukraine.
The comment came during the same interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, during which Zelenskyy said that “all of the countries of the world” should begin preparing for nuclear war with Russia.
“Do you want President Biden to come here?” Tapper asked.
“Yes,” Zelenskyy replied in English.
Zelenskyy said that he doesn’t just want it to happen, but believes that it will.
“Are there any plans for him to come?” Tapper asked.
“I think he will,” Zelensky said.
“You think he will?” Tapper asked.
“I think he will,” Zelensky asserted. “But it’s his decision, of course, and about the safety situation, it depends. But I think he’s the leader of the United States, and that’s why he should come here to see.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said on Monday that “we are currently not planning a trip by the President of the United States to Ukraine.”
Zelenskyy urged other nations not to be “afraid” of nuclear war with Russia.
“The director of the CIA warned that he’s worried Putin might use a tactical nuclear weapon in this fight. Are you worried?” Tapper asked.
“Not only me, I think all over the world, all the countries have to be worried,” Zelensky responded. “Because, you know that it kind of be not real information, but it can be the truth because when they began to speak about one or another battles or involves enemies, or nuclear weapon, or some chemical, you know, issues, chemical weapons, they should do.”
“They could– I mean, they can. For them, life of the people is nothing,” he added. “That’s why we should think, not be afraid. I mean, that not be afraid, be ready. But that is not the question for to Ukraine, and not only for the Ukraine, for all over the world, I think so.”
In March, Zelenskyy taunted the West for being “afraid” of Moscow, in a bid to get fighter jets.
“I’ve talked to the defenders of Mariupol today. I’m in constant contact with them. Their determination, heroism and firmness are astonishing,” Zelenskyy said in a video early Sunday. “If only those who have been thinking for 31 days on how to hand over dozens of jets and tanks had 1% of their courage.”
“So, who is in charge of the Euro-Atlantic community? Is it still Moscow, thanks to its scare tactics?” Zelenskyy continued. “Our partners must step up their aid to Ukraine.”
Apparently, it is extreme cowardice not to run into WWIII for a foreign nation.
“This should be known as soon as possible by as many people on earth as possible so that everyone understands who and why was simply afraid to prevent this tragedy. Afraid to simply make a decision,” Zelenskyy said.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has called for a worldwide boost in support for Kyiv as NATO leaders take part in an emergency summit in Brussels on Thursday to discuss the war in Ukraine.
In his nightly video address to his nation and the world on Wednesday, Zelenskyy said, “Come to your squares, your streets. Make yourselves visible and heard. Say that people matter. Freedom matters. Peace matters. Ukraine matters.”
Russia unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has been meet by unexpectedly strong pushback from Ukrainian forces – though it is unclear for how long the Ukrainian military, far outmatched in size and resources by Russia, will be able to hold the attackers off.
In Russia, the country’s government and economy continue to suffer under the weight of sanctions pouring in from nearly every corner of the globe.
Zelenskyy, in his most recent video address, said he would ask NATO countries to issue “effective and unrestricted” support to Ukraine, including any weapons that may be needed by Kyiv.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg spoke prior to the start of the emergency summit on Thursday and said that the Russian invasion has effectively established a “new security reality in Europe” and that it will be “necessary to respond” in ways that match and counter the precedent seet by Russia last month.
Ukraine is transferring citizens’ power to the state and handing it over to the WEF and other Supranational organizations.
A global system of totalitarian technocracy has arrived, and Ukraine has happily been globalists’ Great Reset Laboratory.
In the middle of a war, Ukraine has been stealthily working hard on being the first nation to implement virtually all the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Great Reset key hallmarks: Digital identity, Vaccination passports, Universal basic income (UBI), Chinese style Social credit scores which are all combined in their already operational Diia app. The country is transferring citizens’ power to the state and handing it over to the WEF and other Supranational organizations.
While a very real conflict is raging in Ukraine, spotlights aren’t shining on the struggles of digital distribution. Yet the advocates of radical world restructuring and total surveillance recognized long ago the potential of this Eastern European country. With the vigorous participation from President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine would be a Mecca for US bio-weapons laboratories and pave the way for digital networking, the Metaverse, and a transparent citizenry. The linchpin is the digital ID app known as “Diia,” an acronym for “The Government and me.”
Zelensky’s Social Credit System
The journey started in 2019 after Zelensky had only been in office for just a few months. The “Ministry for Digital Transformation” was founded, with the main task of creating a government platform for smartphones. The Diia app was launched in February 2020. Since then, progress has been accelerating. With more than 50 applications, online identification, and official governmental channels available via the app which include: Driver’s license, Covid vaccination passport, student ID card, the ability to set up a business, apply for insurance, and receive social benefits. A French tech portal wrote the following about it: “A model we previously only knew from China with its social credit system.” By the way, “ID Austria” is also supposed to go in this direction in its final expansion.
As a social credit system, it must also be implemented quite literally. Last year, Zelensky promised rewards of 1,000 Hryvnia (about 30 euros) – about one-tenth of a typical monthly salary – to any citizen who provided proof of a full vaccination record in Diia. Authorities are no longer permitted to insist on paper documents – and observers believe that the dual option is only a temporary solution. The timing is hardly a coincidence. Two weeks before it went live, Zelensky was named “Guest of Honour” for the first time at the World Economic Forum (WEF) summit hosted by the “Great Reset” architect Klaus Schwab.
“Investment Mecca” for Tech Companies
Zelenski’s speech at the World Economic Forum included the buzzword of a “new normal.” He claimed that current global institutions do not function efficiently and that international security must be rethought. He presented a vision in which Ukraine would take a leading position in Central and Eastern Europe. In doing so, he openly gave his country’s opportunity for investment, recalling that many “big tech” companies started in garages. He presented his dream of a kind of Eastern European Silicon Valley that would turn his country into an “investment mecca.” Or, as Zelenski put it: “Ukraine is the place where miracles come true […] there is a substantial opportunity to expand new economic sectors”.
Schwab was enthused by the idea and pleased about the “reforms” in the country, many of which had been initiated by the WEF itself through WEF subordinate think tanks in Ukraine. However, the WEF isn’t alone in the interest of Ukraine. The globalist Atlantic Council, for example, recognized the potential for “innovation” shortly after Zelensky’s inauguration and mentioned an app that can operate door intercom systems by cell phone, as well as the blockchain company Bitfury. The Atlantic Council praised the developments as positive and mentioned a number of other IT companies in Ukraine. At a networking meeting, Schwab’s “young world leaders,” Justin Trudeau and Zelenski, discussed how to deepen such “innovations further.” Davos also has its own “Ukraine House,” which is regularly available for “networking” during WEF meetings.
Deals with Apple & Microsoft: Digital Census
After the WEF appeal, things moved quickly. A deal was quickly struck with Apple to jointly conduct a digital census in 2023. Once again, using the Diia app and the U.S. company assisting to improve it. In particular, Apple will identify “priority projects that will promote Ukraine’s transition to paperless mode.” Once again, the collaboration is running under the “Ministry of Digital Transformation” – and is not an isolated case.
As recently as 2020, the Ministry finalized a similar deal with Microsoft, which was expected to add $500 million in value. The collaboration is said to be far-reaching, creating a “highly secure cloud platform ecosystem.” This is expected to impact “various industries and promote energy transition, digital transformation of agriculture and sustainability.” In addition, the employees of the Ukrainian government and public authorities are to receive a fully networked environment.
Incidentally, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is creating the Metaverse, a kind of virtual reality that will connect more and more areas of life, was photographed with Zelenski. Activist Naomi Klein already had concerns that Corona would allow “Silicon Valley” to create a digital substructure for a global dictatorship. It is quite conceivable that the war in Ukraine will be another springboard for such goals.
Ukrainians are being bought off for a virtual life – 5 times more salary
To attract further investment to the so-called “Diia City,” it was announced in 2020. This is a digital model for an economic zone with tax benefits for tech corporations. Among the few taxes required by the “Diia City” is a military tax to support the Ukrainian military. High wages are promised about five times higher than the average salary. The goal is to create 450,000 relevant jobs. The aim was to be an “economic model for simplified economic rules” that would form “the basis for the economic transformation of the entire country.” Zelensky fully backed the project. He repeated what he said in Davos: “We want to make Ukraine a global IT hub, a leader in innovation and technology.”
The goal was to attract Ukrainian and international IT companies, high-tech firms, investment funds, startups, and educational groups. The fields to be plowed ranged from agricultural technology to artificial intelligence, drone construction, aircraft and space technology, financial technology, medical neural networks and biotechnology, the advertising industry, trading platforms, the Internet of Things, publishing, blockchain companies, digital outsourcing, the graphics industry, and e-sports companies. In other words, a huge tax-privileged technology park for the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” in which man and machine merge. The ultimate goal, of course, is the “Internet of the Bodies,” in which, according to WEF’s plan, the collection of “bodily data via a range of devices that can be implanted, swallowed or worn.”
Beginning of the end of cash based on the China model?
The plans are obvious: Ukraine was meant as a Beta Test for the fully networked Great Reset world. The renowned Forbes magazine, for instance, also attested the country to be leading the “digital currency revolution.” This is a double-edged sword: A system that starts as a decentralized attempt to regain financial freedom can quickly become a cashless nightmare. Recall China, for example, where free cryptocurrencies are banned – but the country began working on the digital yuan simultaneously. Currently, Chinese state employees already receive part of their salary as state digital money. In China, people are now even begging for alms with QR codes. Similar plans have long been underway in Europe, as Wochenblick previously reported.
Ukraine being proposed as a hub for the digital market is nothing new either. One lever for this is so-called “non-fungible tokens.” These are digital goods that have a certain equivalent value as unique items. Examples include digital art, music, or unique items in PC games. In theory, however, NFTs can take any popular form as long as it is represented in the blockchain. So in a particularly dystopian future, people could theoretically have to speculate with cryptocurrency for a loaf of bread. Recently, an NFT of a Ukraine flag was sold for $6.75 million to pump that amount of money into the country.
From the digital nightclub to real virtual hell
Digital applications in the Metaverse can take any form – and again, Ukraine is a playground for these ideas. Kyiv-based startup MultiNFT launched its own token-based cryptocurrency a few days ago. So far, the company operates digital nightclubs in the Metaverse, for example. Such venues and events could also be used to support the country in the current conflict and beyond.
What seems like an environment of solidarity now could become an illusory world horror of coexisting interconnected Metaverses in the future. The WEF is already hoping to correct the “system error” of the uncontrolled Internet. Imagine if we all have to enter virtual reality as cyborgs or holograms for important bureaucratic purposes. There would be no easier way to eliminate any dissidents – quite literally. Considering that future possibility, the WEF praise for the “climate goals of the Ukrainian central bank” no longer sounds like a harmless part of the radical transformation…
The former press secretary to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is not a fan of Vice President Kamala Harris.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Iuliia Mendel wrote on Twitter that it would be a “tragedy” if Harris ever became president.
“It would be a tragedy if this woman won the presidency,” Mendel wrote on Twitter following Harris’ Thursday press conference alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda addressing the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Below is a screenshot of Mendel’s now-deleted tweet:
Mendel’s tweet was directed at a video posted by another user showing Harris awkwardly laughing following a question from a reporter about Ukrainian refugees.
Harris oddly laughed when she asked if the United States planned on making space for Ukrainian refugees as she met with foreign leaders in Poland to discuss the ongoing Russian invasion.
Both Harris and Poland’s President Andrzej Duda were asked about whether the U.S. would be accepting a greater number of Ukrainian refugees, with the VP giggling awkwardly before Duda actually took the time to answer what was a serious question, given that many of the 2 million Ukrainians who have fled the fighting are currently in his country.
“A friend in need is a friend indeed,” Harris said with a smile before a more somber Duda said he had asked the U.S. vice president to help speed up the process for Ukrainian refugees with family in the U.S. to be able to head to America.
“We are looking for international support because indeed the vast majority of Ukrainian refugees are coming to our country,” Duda said, though Harris did not commit the U.S. to take in a certain number of Ukrainians trying to escape the war.
That said, Harris did note that Ukrainians who are currently in the United States and may have visas that are set to expire soon could remain in America for the time being.
“We will not send them back tow hat is a war zone,” she said.
She also committed the Biden administration to assist Poland.
“As we have said many times through our work collectively in the UN through NATO, we will support Poland in terms of the burden it is facing and our collective responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of these refugees,” Harris said.
Many on social media slammed Harris over her response:
The White House explained the purpose of Harris’ trip in a statement.
“During her trip to Warsaw, Poland, today, U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris announced nearly $53 million in new humanitarian assistance from the United States government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), to support innocent civilians affected by Russia’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine,” the statement said.
“This additional assistance includes support to the UN World Food Program (WFP) to provide lifesaving emergency food assistance to meet immediate needs of hundreds of thousands affected by the invasion, including people who are displaced from their homes and who are crossing the border out of Ukraine. In addition, it will support WFP’s logistics operations to move assistance into Ukraine, including to people in Kyiv,” the White House added.
“The United States is the largest provider of humanitarian assistance to Ukraine and has provided $159 million in overall humanitarian assistance to Ukraine since October 2020, including nearly $107 million in the past two weeks in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. This includes food, safe drinking water, shelter, emergency health care, and winterization services to communities affected by ongoing fighting,” the statement continued.
“To date, two million people have been forced to flee Ukraine due to the conflict, and an estimated one million are displaced inside Ukraine. At least 12 million people are in need of humanitarian aid across Ukraine. The United States continues to stand with the people of Ukraine and will continue to work to meet immediate needs and save lives,” the White House noted further.
Kamala Harris was totally out of place today on the world stage. Everyone knows it. The Conservative Treehouse reported:
The fiasco of U.S manipulation in Ukraine continues as the Biden administration dispatch Kamala Harris to play the role of a grown-up at the Munich conference. She failed…
…The baseline remains the same, and at the end of the meeting between Harris and Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president delivered remarks to call the bluff of Joe Biden (video also below). The words “someone is lying” lead off his speech.
President Zelenskyy emphasized the geopolitical farce when he said to the world if the United States, and as an extension NATO, is so certain that Russia is about to invade and destroy Ukraine sovereignty, then why are they waiting to trigger deterrent sanctions?
Underneath the true answer to that question is the crux of the issue. All of these events within Ukraine are being manipulated by the U.S. State Department and the U.S. intelligence apparatus, just as the events of 2014 in Ukraine were done before.
President Zelenskyy has to pretend the words from Harris are accurate, while simultaneously knowing she is a totally clueless pawn, a tool of the people behind Biden who sent her specifically in an effort to improve the way she is viewed by U.S. voters. The team behind Biden are trying to rebrand Kamala Harris as a serious person, but her stupidity is so evident we cannot hear a word she is saying.
Here is Zelensky’s speech, with his comment on “someone is lying” at the very beginning.
Zelensky: ” Europe is longing for peace. The world is saying it doesn’t want any war. While Russia is saying she doesn’t want to intervene. Someone here is lying.”
Another Sunday, and Biden’s national security adviser is at it again making the rounds on the big network news shows, warning the Russian invasion will invade Ukraine “any day now” – at this point a familiar refrain we’ve heard for multiple weeks running…
“We cannot perfectly predict the day, but we have now been saying for some time that we are in the window, and an invasion could begin, a major military action could begin by Russia in Ukraine any day now — that includes this coming week, before the end of the Olympics,” Jake Sullivan told CNN’s Jake Tapper.
This latest round of breathless White House proclamations and predictions of the Russians are coming! began in earnest Friday afternoon when the administration told reporters that Putin has made the decision to launch a large military offensive.
Multiple countries have now followed Washington’s lead in drawing down embassy and diplomatic staff from Ukraine to get people “out of harm’s way” – with the latest over the weekend being Australia. This is what the alarmism and panic emanating from the White House has wrought…
The prime minister, Scott Morrison, has ordered the evacuation of the Australian embassy in Kyiv, warning the situation in Ukraine has reached a dangerous stage.
Australia’s foreign affairs minister, Marise Payne, says the government has directed the departure of embassy staff to a temporary office in Lviv, with the buildup of Russian troops on the border.
“The situation is deteriorating and is reaching a very dangerous stage,” Morrison said on Sunday.
This is the latest in a growing list of countries withdrawing embassy personnel including Israel, the UK, the Netherlands, Latvia, Japan and South Korea.
But the all-important and central question that’s not being asked is once again: what’s the view from Kiev? What is the Ukrainian government’s reaction to the latest White House statements on the crisis? How about the President of Ukraine himself?
Kiev is not too happy, and is demanding prooffrom US intelligence backing the new dire allegations that Russia is poised to go in:
“There has been too much information about a full-scale war with Russia – even specific dates have been announced. We understand there are risks. If you have any additional information regarding the 100 percent guaranteed invasion of Ukraine by Russia on 16 February, please give it to us,” Volodymyr Zelensky told reporters on Saturday.
Naturally, Ukraine’s leaders are trying to calm the panic which Washington pronouncements and the Western media echo chamber have created…
Zelensky said he did not believe in the danger of a full-scale war at the moment. “I have to speak to the public with real information at hand. We receive information from many sources. We also have an intelligence service. I don’t think that it’s any worse than the intelligence services of other countries,” he noted.
And a fresh report from NBC News taken from the streets of Kiev suggests that many common Ukrainian citizens, too, can see through the hype:
Now, as the West warns a fresh attack is a “distinct possibility” as soon as next week, many in Kyiv aren’t convinced.
“I don’t believe that Russia is going to invade Kyiv. The situation is wound up from both sides,” Oleksandr Bovtach, 55, told NBC News. “The West and Putin are playing each other’s nerves.”
Although some are wary of an invasion, few are preparing for that possibility.
“As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity.” -Hunter Thompson
