Extreme Speed By Which Western World Closed Off Russia Proves That ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ Were Correct – OpEd


It is extremely difficult to shut down all aspects and facets of a person’s life, let alone a small business or company. 


But to shut down an entire nation in almost every regard is nothing short of miraculous, if unprecedented. 

Not only did the unified Western powers, including but not limited to the European Union and the United States shut down, within a matter of hours/days, Russia’s diplomatic relations after their invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, but they also successfully shut down their:

(1) global media propagation;

(2) global internet access;

(3) access to global banking system and SWIFT;


(4) confiscated their real and non-tangible global property and assets;

(5) defamed and ruined their global reputation;

(6) got global internet media conglomerates such as Google, FaceBook (Meta) and even China’s Tik Tok to disavow Russian Television and Sputnik;

(7) expelled their Diplomats;

(8) sanctioned their MVP billionaire oligarchs even if they did not agree with the Ukraine invasion;

(9) closed down their money transmission and merchant accounts;

(10) cut off their food/medicine supply and ability to export; and

much, much more.

For decades now, and picking up speed in the last few years, various “conspiracy theorists” have sworn that there were only a few individuals powerful and connected enough to shut down all or some of the above referenced aspects of human existence, but they were roundly and soundly scoffed at, as being paranoid.

No one is laughing anymore.

    Ridiculous statement……I don’t think this was done by a few individuals. It was done by all of the governments , each of which comprises MANY individuals . It was done with full support of miilions of people , as evidenced by the protests all over the world .

    If the powers at be had not , they would be ignoring the will of the masses

      What about the millions and billions of the world’s “masses” that don’t agree with your sick, twisted and perverted “value systems?”

      Oh, I guess they don’t matter, provided that your “elites” do the thinking and decision-making for them…

    Contrary to the article, the West didn’t just pull these actions out of its hat last week. Stories about the pending Russian invasion of Ukraine have been making the circuit, and I read articles about beginning in the middle of 2021. Obviously, if the media knew about it back then, then our CIA and Military, and Government already knew about it as well. Why would anyone think that our Government and the rest of NATO would not prepare for this eventuality? Of course they planned ahead on how to react. I’ve read recently, that Biden had already secretly been sending Ukraine arms, ammo, and Stinger missiles earlier this year. Just because we don’t hear about what’s going on behind the scenes doesn’t mean it’s some type of weird QAnon conspiracy. I’ll draw your attention to the Jan 11, 2022 Politico article : Inside Biden’s secretive weapons shipment to Ukraine… as proof that this isn’t an off the cuff effort.

    Dream on. Everything the incompetent Biden Administration does is ‘off the cuff’ and political motivated and reactionary. Total chaos.

    So, the EU and the US “(5) defamed and ruined their [Russia’s] global reputation;”?
    This bizarre statement clearly indicates the shortcomings of the article as a serious, objective analysis and the author as a serious, objective analyst.
    Obviously, it was Russia herself that defamed and ruined her own already diminished global reputation by the wanton attack on her peaceful neighbour.

      Sure, a “peaceful neighbor” that killed off 14,000 plus of her own country’s citizens (Russian ethnicity/speakers) in the eastern Donbasse region of Ukraine with missiles and other sick methods since 2014, while Russia looked on and did nothing out of respect for international law. Where in hell was the EU, USA and the UN while this was going on?
