PUTIN’S TENDER FOR THE UKRAINE
When C.A.F. sends you an email that says "you can tender for a company, you can also tender for a country," you tend (no pun intended) to sit up and take notice, especially if the email is accompanied with another article containing a history lesson on how the late German Chancellor Helmut Kohl tendered for East Germany. If you don't know that story, I've discussed it often, but here's the article, and the headline says it all:
Kohl Offers 1 to 1 Exchange Rate for E. German Money
There you have it: Kohl offered to convert the nearly worthless East German mark at par value into the West German Deutschmark, and with that ingenious Anschluss, the Communist state was no more, for East Germans predictably lined up to get the more valuable West German marks, which, of course, they could then spend in West Germany to get those things they could not purchase in the socialist workers' paradise of East Germany. It's good to know that Kohl was a German chancellor in the best, sneakiest Walter-Rathenau-Treaty-of-Rapallo tradition. Mögen ihre Erinnerungen hoch leben, dreimal hoch!
Now it appears that Mr. Putin may be playing a similar game, according to this article that C.A.F. sent along, which I'm passing along to you:
Putin Signs Decree Offering Russian Citizenship to All Ukrainians
The article is so short that it's worth citing the whole thing:
All Ukrainians can now apply for fast-track Russian citizenship, according to a decree signed Monday by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Previously, this option had been open only to residents of Ukraine's eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions, as well as residents of the southern Zaporizhzhia and the Kherson regions, which are largely under Russian control.
It was unclear how many would apply for Russian citizenship, but between 2019 — when the offer was made available to residents of Donetsk and Luhansk — and 2022, about 18% of the population in rebel-held areas of Ukraine received Russian passports.
In May, the program was expanded to residents of the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions.
Ukrainian officials have yet to comment on Putin’s decree. (Italicized emphasis added)
Notice that the dateline of the article is June 29, and that the information comes from prior Reuters and AP articles. Interestingly, I do not recall any of the western legacy lamestream broadcast propatainment media covering this story, nor any team of "experts" or panels of "analysts" offering explanations of what it might mean. So herewith my own:
In my opinion, it means exactly what C.A.F.'s email states it means: it's Mr. Putin's tender for the country, but cleverly, not in the form of a currency swap for what must be increasingly valueless Ukrainian hryvnia. Mr. Putin is tendering for the population of the Ukraine, or at least, a significant part of it, by fast tracking applications for Russian citizenship and passports not only in occupied regions, but the whole country.
It's a clever way of accomplishing, in effect, what Mr. Kohl did three decades ago with his par value tender for the East German mark. In fact, in a way, it's much more clever, for as Ukrainians apply, and get, Russian passports and citizenship, inevitably they have to transact in roubles if they're intending to travel inside of Russia or do any business with it. Once they do travel or do any business, they'll discover that Russia is not suffering anything near the economic dislocations as the Ukraine. Russian money can actually buy something which the Russians just also happen to produce (little things like oil, gas, and food). They will return to the Ukraine, where, doubtless, they will continue to use those roubles to buy things... it's rather like many people in the Confederacy during the American Civil War using Union currency, because it could actually buy things that the increasingly worthless currency put out by the crumbling Confederate government could not. The Confederate economy was a kind of financialized "service economy" that could (and did) print lots of money and financial instruments, and that could (and did) produce lots of misery, but that could not produce much in the way of things like locomotives, steel, and so on. Think of Zelensky, in this context, as a kind of Jefferson Davis, version 2.0.
All this to say, it's Mr. Putin's clever way of integrating the everyday Ukrainian economy into the Russian federation's; no "regime change" necessary. Actual ability to buy food, gas, and make things(like food and gas and cars), wins out over bonds, promises to pay, sustainable policy agendas, derivatives, and stock options, every time.
Meanwhile, it will be up to the central banksters of the West to prop up the Ukrainian economy with more secret laboratories, and to prop up the Ukrainian currency, perhaps even by buying vast quantities of Ukrainian bonds and the currency itself with dollars and euros, et voila! One collapsing satrapy is propped up by a union of other collapsing satrapies in Brussels, propping up a crumbling empire that can only export wars and drones. Be sure and put those bonds in the same strong box as all those Khoumintang Chinese Bonds from 1934....
Welcome, Klaus, to the "Great Reset," Putin-style; you will own nothing, and you will be happy.
See you on the flip side...

One wonders if there is a growing black market for Western supplied arms and munitions to Ukraine?
This seems well fishy! Also the aircraft stop-offs on route seem mysterious.
At least 12 million people have fled their homes since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Now this is some 3D Chess. “Okay Comrade Refugee, you accept Russian Citizenship and we pay for you to come home, give you place to live, food to eat and a job when ready.”
Heck, I’d take that deal and I’m in Nuttyfornia.
To toast cranial cup, one has to decapitate the Oscars. Jack Sparrow is plotting to jump the puddle, to ensure tzarist pogrom of Disney, and Cossack horsewhipping of Khazarian movie moguls.
What dangerous explosive cargo was this Ukrainian plane transporting which crashed yesterday in Greece?
People living near the site of a crashed cargo plane in northern Greece have been told to stay indoors amid fears over toxic material.
The Antonov-12, operated by a Ukraine-based company, was flying from Serbia to Jordan when it went down on Saturday close to the city of Kavala.
It was not immediately known whether there were any survivors.
Greece’s ERT state broadcaster reported that the aircraft had been carrying a 12-tonne cargo.
Hopefully, it is not Fausti’s flying biolab, carrying twelve monkeys. On the other hand, Ukrainian black market could be cashing in, on some Biden aid. I could use a humwee for camping. Unfortunately, Ukraine shop is presently not on eBay.
I think this is a wait and see.
1. Get a free Russian passport.
2. Get a passport and get a free donut.
3. Get a passport and a hamburger and fries.
4. What, no passport? No entry.
5. No passport, no job.
6. No passport, no travel.
7. EU passport. ?
The greatest paradox is, that the “sword in the stone” – as a metaphor – is both ancient Britannic and Anglo-Saxon, suggesting a much older common source in antiquity.
Since the metaphor is the closing image of the Rune poem, and the natural images therein only fit Druidic Britain, then the Rune poem must be British.
Only the Scythian sphere qualifies as the common source in antiquity, and British tin trade makes the connection possible, via a 2nd Troy, as a secondary seaport to Jerusalem.
It can be demonstrated, that the Runes are an ideology, derived from the eight-legged compass, which is the Russian Kolovrat of Scythian origin, and that defines ancestral identity, more so than any passport.
BTW, when recognizing the Kolovrat, as the real passport of identification in the Scythian sphere, then one is refurbishing Christianity, to fit the Scythian narrative, from where original Christianity is derived in the first place.
In the Ukraine, one either confirms identity, as Scythian descent, or one remains a Roman slave, in worship of Pope Satan.
I read that recently and thought, “good move.” But I didn’t flesh it out at all, much less to the degree you have. Brilliant move by Russia and humanitarian as well. Thank you.
Putin’s frogfest in the Ukraine:
Ever read the novel The Pirate from Rome Putin has taken a page out of Pompey’s playbook that destroyed the Cillian Pirates.
Sorry, WestPoint( now known as WPoint++) lost that page in an update. We did however substitute it with the collected works of Louis L’Amour, so all’s good.
Agreed. A good example of what it means to be well-read and astute.
NO blatherskite soapboxing from this side of the monitor. Besides clever, most definitely – shrewd. Moskva knows Kyiv better than DC, EU, & Beijing know themselves.
As the cauldron simmers the people of the Ukraine have a few questions also to [tender]; Were they better off separate from Russia? Who and what were responsible for the chaotic Donbas? Is this the time, even opportunity, to think strategically about the Ukraine’s future productivity?
In the meantime, The Ukraine grain harvest continues on despite some burning fields in the distance of the farmers, combines and harvesters. And Turkiye may take a step in the next week or two to allow the grains to flow again as they once did.
Please, just back off –– mine ass is tender today; just look at my DonKey, éh?

I hope Putin invades Canada next. I’m getting sick of my fantasy baseball players who correctly refuse to get vaccinated being placed on the restricted list every time their team visits Toronto.
If I were commissioner, I’d force the Blue Jays to play in Buffalo or automatically forfeit games due to the unfairness of living in a totalitarian nation. I’d probably force the Blue Jays to relocate to the United States. No chance we’ll see the MLB that moved the All-Star game from Atlanta due to woke virtue signaling doing anything pro-freedom.
This will further undermine the tottering nazi regime in Kiev.
Either the whole West-vs.-Russia conflict is a grand kabuki theater (I’m not convinced), or this is an ingenious move on Russia’s part. I think it is indeed a tender for the Ukraine, or at least for the parts of it that aren’t absolutely, immutably anti-Russian.
IF Ms. C.A.F. if right, then this is simply( apart from bombing at least some of it to hell & gone) a business transaction. Thus making it competely legal and finished( though slightly varnished). Done, and done(tsk).
Putin’s frogfest against Khazarian movie moguls:
FiatLux, just answer the questions whatv was Sean Penn doing in the Ukraine and what is the history of Zelensky? So my conclusion is all Kabuki theatre. What is easier then stage war pictures in an empty city as everybody fled the scene. Make no mistakes, warfare 4.0 is not done with weapons like tanks, planes etc, It is the blurred view of the reality around us for 98% of the population what makes this feasible. Just read your lamestream newwspapers and it feels like we are in a soccer or NBA or NFL or what ever kind of “competition” Like the Tour de Frande, one wins a stage and then looses time again. The same reporting about this conflict for the mass of people. They cannot separate reality from painted relailities. This is so scary!!!! I’d rather fight an enemy of devoted communists then what is going on today.
I do think the media coverage of the Ukraine conflict, just like media coverage of almost everything, is a propaganda-filled clown show and, like coverage of other wars, is full of stage-managed images. The real question is, are Russia and the West secretly in agreement over the outcome or are they really hostile to each other? My best guess is that a lot of the Western oligarchy is truly hostile to Russia because its current government is nationalistic and won’t let Western corporations control Russia’s natural resources. I also think certain factions of the Western oligarchy have personal, historical grudges against Russia; and for that reason, not every move Mr. Globaloney makes against Russia is based 100% on rational self-interest.
In my opinion, another thing that makes this conflict seem somehow “fake” is that it’s only partly directed against Russia. It’s also a war by Mr. Globaloney against the West, in order to make oil, gasoline, and natural gas unaffordable to everybody but the rich. That’s a convenient excuse to push the so-called Green New Deal and force the masses to drastically reduce their standard of living, while the private-jet class gets to fly around the world unhindered, even as the rest of us get carbon-taxed into poverty for the privilege of breathing and existing on this planet.
This citizenship offer is consistent with Russia re-incorporating a lot more ground than just Crimea and Donetsk-Luhansk region. I was thinking they were going to take everything east of the Dnieper R., but maybe this is going to go further west than that.
Could be, but remember that Russia has a shortage of people, not land.
“Welcome, Klaus, to the “Great Reset,” Putin-style; you will own nothing, and you will be happy.”
Love it. It’s time for Klaus and friends to retire from public life – they have done their service to de-humanity.
I saw this article on The Saker yesterday and perhaps he is right when he said towards the end of the article:
“Meanwhile, lots of dead ideas, systems and institutions are piling up in the West. Dead is the Green New Deal (a scheme concocted by people who know neither physics nor even arithmetic) and the Great Reset, and Build Back Better (whatever that was), and the rules-based international order, and Mutual Assured Destruction (if you ask for it, Russia will destroy it, but how mutual is that?). And we are all standing by, waiting for a shout of “Timber!” when the dollar/euro/yen debt pyramid begins to topple.”
That paragraph stands out and this line particularly; “Dead is the Green New Deal (a scheme concocted by people who know neither physics nor even arithmetic)…”
Another great article from Orlov.
“All this to say, it’s Mr. Putin’s clever way of integrating the everyday Ukrainian economy into the Russian federation’s; no “regime change” necessary”
Ahh, yeah! first you bomb and destroy half of the country, then on that rubble you ofer peace and prosperity Russian style. Problem is that all countries and nations from former Soviet bloc are way to familiar with so called Ruskij Mir, translation Russian world/peace. No, thank you but thank you Mr. Putin.
Thank you JF – really great stats and analysis. I knew US manufacturing had been eroded by NAFTA, but had no idea it averaged to 25.4 manufacturing facilities per county. The West made its bed. Ugly stuff.
Either you are Scythian descent, or Roman slave. Pick a choice!
Breaking the Seventh Seal is Samadhi or illumination.
When reaching that state of mind, man stands inside a compass, in the intersection of the lines northsouth and eastwest, and that is the garden plot in Genesis, where man stands, like a tree, in the center of his world.
Then the Grail quest becomes the mapping of time by compass. Approaching closure of lifespan becomes re-ligare. Fall, from that state of mind, is not possible.
Adam is a tree. The rib is a branch. Eve is a leaf. That is the Green Man. Man’s original state of being is a tree, in a flesh suit.
The fruit hangs on a tree, where branch and leaf meet, from where the fruit takes a free fall, driven out of the Garden. The Garden is guarded by Samadhi as illumination.
Roman bureaucrats, who categorize roman versus human, as patrician versus plebeian, are not capable of breaking the Seventh Seal, because they are enslaved.
Breaking the sixth and seventh seals is explained in the cave parable, attributed to Plato, and that is the Scythian founding myth, described by Herodotus. Tolkien calls it shadow and flame.
Killing the ego is liberating the spirit, and the sixth and seventh seals kill the emotional and mental aspects of the ego. It creates a kill switch on empathy, that allows switching between ego and spirit at will.
Samadhi is Genesis by default, from where geometry is default creation, as principle of order.
BTW, implementing Iceland, into the star-strangled banner, is biting off more, than anyone can chew.
Before Norsemen arrived in Iceland, British Druidry was already present there, escaping persecution from Rome.
Civil war in Norway was Roman centralization, by criminal proxy, a local “Charlemagne”, doing the bidding of Rome.
Iceland was symbolically the last stand of Scythian resistance in the West, and still is:
