How Putin saved lives in Kyiv and American media got it wrong
Vladimir Putin is a mastermind and his strategy on Kyiv, Ukraine proved it, the American and British media got it all wrong. One of the most glaring examples of the mainstream media being out of touch with military conflict reality was, the reporting that a Russian tank convoy (which stretched for over 40 miles) was stalled just 10 miles from the capital city Kyiv. For over a week the media hyped the massive tank convoy that was going into Kyiv at any minute, it was a scary thought. Satellite images of the massive tank convoy led news broadcasts to report the city of Kyiv would be flattened in a matter of a day or 2. An attack was imminent they proclaimed.
The sudden stoppage of the truck convoy led to media reports of Ukrainian resistance and rough terrains, the reporting suggested the Russians did not realize it would be so difficult to go another 10 miles with a 40-mile convoy.
Television news paraded out retired military generals with a Ukraine support agenda, all the former generals told Americans that Putin was frustrated that the convoy could not enter Kyiv. We were told, the men had no food, they had run out of fuel, the 40-mile convoy could not go another 10 miles.
There is not one iota of truth in the mainstream media, everything “Russia and Ukraine” is choreographed with Washington.
The BBC was puzzled
Putin: Do not enter Kyiv…circle it
For days the 40-mile tank convoy sat right outside Kyiv, toying with so called “military experts”. As the imposing convoy sat, the citizens of the city fled. The news of the massive tank formation caused hundreds of thousands to flee the city in days. The rumors swirled that at any minute the tanks would receive their orders from Putin and the carnage would begin, the American media waited in anticipation for the bloodbath. 40 miles away! 30 miles away! 20 miles away! 10 miles away!
British Guardian News
After a week the thrill was fading, the convoy simply sat there, apparently going nowhere, puzzling the news media. But more citizens fled safely at the site of the convoy than from Russian tanks actually entering the city. In a weird way Putin actually saved civilian lives by fearing them out of the city with the help of the America/British media. More residences fled Kyiv in the week of the tank convoy sitting outside the city of Kyiv than at any other time during the war.
Putin calculated perfectly
Putin calculated the America media hype machine would create a panic about the convoy, just the week before the world witnessed the Canadian trucker convoy shock Canada with its stance against vaccine mandates. The trucker convoy brought Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau to his knees. Putin is an old KGB soviet military mastermind; American media is mostly hype and ratings. After the Russian convoy was finally attacked by Ukrainians or foreign fighters, the tanks simply broke up and surrounded the city, they never fought back.
The Russian plan had been successful, almost 1 million have fled safely from Kyiv as of today. The tanks have simply surrounded the city as Russian soldiers slowly make their move inside.
