The US-led Western Mainstream Media (MSM) and those of its followers who support Kiev in the face of Moscow’s ongoing special military operation in Ukraine scoffed at the Russian Defense Ministry’s latest briefing when Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi claimed that his country utterly destroyed its target’s military-industrial complex. After all, the “politically correct” narrative that’s been actively propagated across the world by America and its allies is that Russia is “losing” the campaign due to supposedly “fierce Ukrainian resistance”. According to adherents of this factually false interpretation of events, it’s only a matter of time before Kiev “wins the war”.
Lo and behold, this alternative reality was just discredited by none other than Alexey Arestovich, one of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s senior advisors. In his own words, “They have practically destroyed our military industry and in many ways are finishing it off.” This completely contradicts everything that his foreign patrons have been spewing for over a month already, which is why he deserves credit for finally speaking the truth no matter what his personal reasons may have been. In one fell swoop, one of the bases upon which the US-led West’s anti-Russian infowar campaign was waged collapsed with a whimper after Zelensky’s own senior advisor just debunked it.
His reasons for doing so can’t be known for sure, but might be connected with Kiev’s desire to secure more foreign funding, both for rebuilding its economy and especially its military-industrial complex. Furthermore, emphasizing the near-total loss of his country’s military production capabilities could be intended to add a sense of urgency to Kiev’s request for more Western military support. The fact of the matter is that the US’ proxies in Ukraine can no longer continue waging war against Russia on their own without America and its allies’ military aid. This observation alone proves just how much Moscow has devastated their military capabilities in the span of a single month.
Those who sincerely aspire to pierce through the fog of war and thus obtain the most accurate assessment of this conflict possible within the limits imposed upon foreign observers like themselves should deeply reflect upon what Arestovich just revealed. He single-handedly sacrificed one of the bases upon which his US-led Western allies built their unprecedented infowar against Russia and wouldn’t have committed such major self-inflicted damage to their shared cause unless he calculated that it was worth the risk. The only explanation that makes sense is that Kiev is losing so badly that it’ll finally share the same truth revealed by the Russian Ministry of Defense in order to desperately obtain more arms.
