Ukraine and Russia Eliminate the "Five Eyes" Middlemen?

Ukraine "Internal Security" Building, Kiev Ukraine
Anti-War Blogger Bruce Gagnon says: "This is the headquarters of the internal security agency in Kiev, Ukraine. Who do you think really runs the place?"


Lol.  The worst possible outcome for the non-stop Western efforts to stoke the fires of enmity and conflict in civil war torn Ukraine happened just yesterday.  Putin and the newly elected Ukraine President Zelensky talked by telephone.  Could this be the beginning of the end for the hegemonic goals of the "Five Eyes" in Ukraine????

Why, just the other day, anti-war blogger Bruce Gagnon was reporting that the US was "building/expanding new Navy and Air Force Installations in Ukraine".  See the snippet below for the details and I will have more comments to follow:

...Take a look at this story about the US (since unable to grab Crimea in 2014 following the US orchestrated coup d'etat in Ukraine) presently building/expanding new Navy and Air Force installations in Ukraine. The US is preparing for war with Russia - poking them - prodding them - escalating war exercises near their border. The US-NATO are just itching for Moscow to make a move they can use as justification to start dropping the hammer on Russia. It would be a colossal mistake.

The online site called Breaking Defense ran the story called US Upgrades Ukrainian Ports To Fit American Warship. The story reads in part:
As tensions rise between Russia and Ukraine on the Black Sea, the US is upgrading several Ukrainian naval bases to give American and NATO warships the ability to dock just miles from Russia-controlled Crimea...."

In spite of regular beefing up of the Ukrainian military by the West, including some few millions thrown in that direction by Canada during Zelensky's recent stop in Toronto, the taste for more civil war conflict seems to have waned in Ukraine, according to public opinion polls.  The mere fact that Zelensky was given an overwhelming majority in the last election based on his promise to bring peace to the region speaks for itself.

Pro-Russian blogger, John Helmer from Dances With Bears also hinted that this sort of détente was in the offing in his recent post, which included the delicious cartoon of  Zelensky sweeping Canada's very own neo-Nazi Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland, out the door:

Canadians dearly wish WE could also sweep this Sorosian, US State Dept. stooge from power in Ottawa.

So, the big question is:  What did Putin and Zelensky talk about on the phone?  No doubt they talked about the carbon fuel energy that Ukraine is dependent on Russia to provide...gas and oil pipelines, perchance? Perhaps Putin offered Zelensky a slice of the "New Silk Road/Belt and Road Initiative" pie. Perhaps Putin even dangled a few S-400's for bait [sarc]..

Any idiot who takes the time to look at a map can see that Ukraine and Russia are literally joined together at the hip.  Only a fool (TM) would try to separate these Siamese twins.  But then, the US State Department isn't known for bringing geopolitical brains (or anything else) to the international negotiating table.  Remember Victoria Nulan and her "F*ck the EU"?

No, won't be long now before Zelensky orders some S-400's and rings them around Kiev.  Just like Erdogan is currently protecting Turkey's capital, Ankara, with his.  If only Canada had a little sense and ordered some for Ottawa.  Then maybe Canada could survive for at least another decade or two.
