Liz Truss: We may support a tribunal to try Putin over war in Ukraine

Event

The UK is considering supporting a special international tribunal to try President Putin for the war in Ukraine, Liz Truss has said. In a conversation with Oleksiy Goncharenko, a Ukrainian MP, on Times Radio, the foreign secretary said that ministers were looking at the “most effective way” of holding Russia’s leaders to account for “appalling war crimes”. The Ukrainian government wants a special international tribunal to be established to try Putin and other members of the Russian government for the crime of aggression against Ukrainians. Asked by Goncharenko whether she would support the move, Truss replied:

“Well, we are very clear that Putin and all of those who’ve been behind the appalling war crimes that are being committed in Ukraine need to be held to account, and we’re working very closely with the ICC [International Criminal Court]. We’ve sent support into Ukraine to help collect evidence, from witness statements to video evidence.”

Comment

Britain wants Putin to be held personally accountable for the terrible conflict in Ukraine. Back in March, Dominic Raab, the UK justice secretary, pledged the “full support” of the British state to build a war crimes case against Putin and his military commanders in Ukraine. This week the UK foreign secretary has said that Britain will hold Putin to account.

The Bible says that the king of the south (US/UK) will push at Gog – the Russian ruler of Daniel 11 verse 36-39. This push is a personal provocation of the king and we see how personal it is for the UK. Britain is leading the way in pushing and provoking Putin. Britain has supplied thousands of Brimstone missiles that are destroying Russian tanks with pinpoint accuracy. Russia accuses the UK of fighting a proxy war against it. After the push the “king of the north” (Russia itself) invades Israel.

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)

Pushing Russia

Push Russia out of whole of Ukraine, says Truss

BBC, April 28, 2022

Event

Russian forces must be pushed out of “the whole of Ukraine“, the Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said. In a keynote speech in London, Ms Truss said victory for Ukraine was now a “strategic imperative” for the West. This amounts to the clearest statement yet of Britain’s war aims which have, until now, been limited to stating that President Putin‘s invasion of Ukraine

“must fail and be seen to fail”.

She said Western allies must “double down” in their support for Ukraine.

“We will keep going further and faster,”

Ms Truss said,

“to push Russia out of the whole of Ukraine.”

This implies that Russian forces must leave not just the territory occupied in recent weeks since their invasion on 24 February but also those areas they invaded and annexed eight years ago, such as Crimea in the south and parts of the eastern Donbas region. Not all western powers may share Ms Truss’ ambitious target, fearing it is unlikely to be achieved either by arms or negotiation.

Comment

We are reading in this BBC headline the exact same headline written in the Bible 2500 years ago in the book of Daniel.

In the WWW for over a decade we have been saying that Daniel 11 verse 40 – which reads

“at the time end of the end the king of the south shall push at him”

should be interpreted like this…..

“at the time of the end the US / UK will militarily provoke Gog / Putin.”

And now we have the exact headlines before us. The UK is leading the way in “pushing” at Putin the ruler of Russia. We don’t know how far this push will go. But as each week passes the push gets stronger and Putin’s rhetoric increases too. The “push”(Hebrew word for “gore”) causes the king of the north (Russia itself) to descend into the Middle East – specifically into Israel and also Egypt.

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)

U.S. push for Ukraine “win” raises the stakes for Russia

The Economist April 29

Event

President Biden‘s request for an additional $20 billion in military assistance is intended to equip Ukraine for the next five months of war. It’s part of a broader mission to ensure “they have what they need to win this war,” an administration official told reporters.

“We gotta move at the speed of war,”

declared Lloyd Austin, America’s defence secretary, as he signalled a new, more intense phase in the West’s effort to help Ukraine repel Russia’s invasion. It involves providing more and heavier weapons, sustaining the effort for months and, above all, embracing the belief that Ukraine can now “win”. The Ukrainians, Mr Austin said,

“have the mindset that they want to win; we have the mindset that we want to help them win.”

What is more, he said,

“We want to see Russia weakened to the degree that it can’t do the kinds of things that it has done in invading Ukraine.”

Comment

The US is also “pushing” Putin. Biden is asking for an astonishing $20 billion in military assistance to Ukraine. This sort of money can help tip the balance. Last month, the United States Congress approved $13.6bn in assistance to Kyiv, but the Biden administration has said it already used much of the funds. So does this “push” from the king of the south immediately lead to Russia invading Israel?

There is a clue in the text that there is a slight gap between the push (in Ukraine) and Russia invading Israel. Notice the colon at the end of the phrase “push at him:” A colon denotes a time gap. Usually a fairly short time gap. After the colon the king of the north (Russia) comes down into Israel. It is in this colon time gap that the initial inner ring war happens around Israel. Russia won’t invade south until it is victorious (somehow or other) in Ukraine…

And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Daniel 11:40)

Is Putin the Antichrist?

Random Thought Farm

Russia has invaded Ukraine and the Russian President, Vladimir Putin, is at the center of it all. Many have likened his invasion to Hitler invading Poland in 1939, which started WWII. This is a fair comparison, I believe, since Ukraine was no real threat to the Russian Federation that would require invasion.

I have already seen two articles on the Internet that accuse President Putin of being the Antichrist and that this is the start of the End Times. This is a standard reaction whenever someone unliked does something bold. I found out just last Sunday that US President George Washington is the only US president who was not accused of being the Antichrist at some point during his presidency. These accusations fly far too often, and usually out of ignorance.

But, on the heels of worldwide pestilence (Covid), is Russia actually fulfilling their place in God’s final chapter of…

Ukraine war is veering fast towards a big power conflict

Debkafile, March 17, 2022

“Unacceptable and unforgivable,” was the Kremlin’s response to the US president’s branding of Vladimir Putin as “a war criminal,” on Wednesday, March 16.

Incensed rather than cowed by sanctions and international condemnation, the Russian president is likely to double down on his war offensive against Ukraine – regardless of the spreading death, human misery and ravaged cities. An expanding confrontation therefore cannot be ruled out for the foreseeable future. President Joe Biden spoke after the horror of Russia’s bombing of a theater in Mariupol where more than a thousand people including many children were sheltering against the constant shelling. The death toll is unknown as are the numbers still buried under the rubble while rescuers are prevented from reaching the scene.

Moscow was seen in Washington as expanding its targets beyond the Ukraine border with the assault by 30 Russian cruise missiles on the large Ukrainian military facility outside Lviv near the Polish border.

So far this war has been a war between Ukraine and Russia. But many military analysts and commentators are saying World War 3 has never been closer. Western powers have maneuvered extremely carefully to avoid direct conflict with President Vladimir Putin, the man who controls the world’s largest nuclear arsenal and has shown no qualms in boasting about it. But many believe there is now a grave danger that the United States and other NATO allies could be drawn into the war.

It is possible that we do look back and date the start of WW3 or the “time of trouble” from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Russia has overnight become a pariah state. Instead of backing down the Bible says Putin will continue to destroy until he himself is destroyed by God.

He will cause a shocking amount of destruction and succeed in everything he does. He will destroy powerful leaders and devastate the holy people. He will be a master of deception and will become arrogant This is describing a latter day Antiochus Epiphanes (the ancient king of the north) who lives at the time of the end. Putin clearly fits every description of this man. (Daniel 8:24-25 NLT)

Sanctions are crippling the economy of ‘Fortress Russia’

March 4, 2022

A shuttered stock market, close to default, business boycotts and a rush to the cash machines: the Russia economy is on its knees just eight days into the invasion. The scale of the looming economic collapse has clearly alarmed Russia’s business elite following a tidal wave of Western sanctions with oligarchs close to Vladimir Putin breaking cover to criticise the invasion. JPMorgan warned on Friday that the country is facing a hit as great as Russia’s 1998 financial crisis, predicting an 11pc peak-to-trough GDP plunge. The Centre for Economics and Business Research expects a 14pc hit in lost output in Russia over two years.
Oil and gas is still flowing from Russia to Europe, keeping a vital revenue source for its economy and the Kremlin intact.  But shoppers and industries, including banking, shipping, aviation and retail, are already feeling the heat as the West severs economic ties and turn Russia into a pariah state.

In just over a week Russia has suffered an economic meltdown. And worse is too come. The Economist said this week that the sanctions introduced by the US / UK / EU on the 26th February are causing “financial mayhem” in Russia causing Putin to increase Russia’s nuclear alert level. With incredible foresight, Brother John Thomas wrote these words in 1848,

“Let the Russian treasury be as empty as it is said to be, and its expenditure exceed its revenue by double the alleged deficit, it will only operate as a pressure from within, causing her autocrat [Gog], to enter into countries, and to overflow and pass over, and to enrich himself with the spoil of those he is destined to subdue.”

Ezekiel wrote

And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords (Ezekiel 38:4)

The hook in the jaws is the lure of spoil in Israel (gas/oil) required by Gog to replace lost revenues in Europe…

The invasion of Ukraine is personal for me…as it is for many of us

Just Bear With Me...

We are all gripped – feeling both horror at Russian president Vladimir Putin and immense pride in the strength of the Ukrainians – by the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.

Readers of this website are likely aware of my personal connections to the sovereign democratic nation of Ukraine. My mother’s father – the man who became Samuel Joseph Kohn – was born in the central town of Shpola in 1904. This is during the period when the eastern edge of the Russian Empire was a vast Jewish region called The Pale of Settlement.

And while my mother’s mother – born Ida Gurmankin, though she later became Irene Goldman – was born in Philadelphia in 1914, Ida’s mother Rachel Debra Shore was born in Uman in 1895. Her first husband, my maternal great-grandfather Jacob “Jack” Gurmankin, was born in Kherson in 1893. This photograph was taken at the wedding of Jack…

How do I write that my older brother could go to war? How do I write that I cannot comfort my godchildren, wipe their tears away and protect them from the injustice now taking place? How can I write that the peace in which my goddaughter believes does not exist?

Imagine the place you have always called home, the place where you planned to start a family, being bombed into terror and destruction. This is what I’m experiencing. And I am still struggling to believe it.

The country I proudly call my home is Ukraine. Let us not call this a ‘crisis’. Let us open our eyes to see that this is nothing short of a re-invasion by one aggressor. People are dying, families are being destroyed. Children, women and men are being killed every day. For what? For a rich man…

The judgement of posterity will determine whether invading Ukraine was wise or a mistake


Quote of the day”

Putin may be convinced that he has chosen wisely,
even if it costs him his job and his reputation as a successful Russian leader.
Seen like this,
it is not the judgement of the next few days or weeks that will determine whether invading Ukraine was a mistake,
but the judgement of posterity.

– This is Putin’s biggest mistake – and how he will be remembered,
Mary Dejevsky writes for Independent Voices.
