The Biden story is a cover for Trump’s favor (quid pro quo) to Putin to force Zelenski withdraw troops from Donbas & relinquish the region to Putin.
Putin has a multi step plan to achieve 'Novorossiya'

“Novorossiya” is an archaic term for an area that was controlled by Russia during the imperial czarist times of the 19th century.

🔑Like the Saudi Nuke Deal TeamTrump hasn’t stoped trying to implement a plan to help Putin regain control of Eastern Ukraine.

Why did Trump comment about “Crowdstrike” referencing the DNC Hack?

📌Trump’s mention of CrowdStrike in call with Ukraine’s president recalls Russian hack of DNC

“An *extremely* similar attack to the one on the DNC servers was also carried out against an Ukrainian artillery unit.”
🔑Was Trump mention of Crowdstrike a veiled (coded) threat of another devastating cyber/ military attack on Ukrainian artillery forces in the Donbass region that occurred on July 11, 2014?


🔑It started with the buzzing of Russian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) overhead and cyberattacks against Ukrainian command, control and communications systems.

🔑The Russians then launched an attack.
📌The attack left the Ukrainian forces decimated and demoralized..
Another theory:

“Putin hates Crowdstrike because they uncovered Russia’s mobile malware on the battlefield against Ukraine & the DNC hack w/ COZY & FANCY BEAR malware on the DNC server”
Recent Timeline:


U.S. ambassador to Ukraine is recalled after becoming a political target

Yovanovitch was given a choice whether to stay until July or leave early and she chose to leave early, due to the ongoing political attacks.

Which speaks to this:

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy on Wednesday pressed Russian leader Vladimir Putin for a resumption of peace talks after four Ukrainian soldiers were killed by shelling in the eastern Donbass border region.

Ukraine's president says ready to meet Russia's Putin in Minsk
Background re Minsk Accord


Specifically, the plan stipulates assigning a special status to the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics (the DPR and the LPR) and creating the so-called Donbass autonomous region in the country’s east.

Russia’s move to fast-track the granting of citizenship to all residents of the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk runs counter to efforts to achieve peace in an armed conflict that is in its sixth year.


The command of the Russian occupation forces is taking measures to build up fortifications at forward positions of the units of the 1st (Donetsk) and 2nd (Luhansk) army corps of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation,"
Same day as RU Military build up in the Donbas region. 🔼

Trump pressed Ukrainian leader to investigate Biden’s son, according to people familiar with the matter

Russia’s Gazprom supplies over 1.5 bcm of gas to occupied Donbas in H1
Yuriy Vitrenko, ED of Naftogaz of Ukraine, says he expects that the process of recovering debt from Russia's gas giant Gazprom in the amount of about US$3 billion from the sale of seized assets will be fully completed at the end of next year

New evidence emerges of Russian role in Ukraine 2014 conflict known as the battle of Ilovaysk in August 2014, including the presence of a model of tank used only by the Russian armed forces at that time.

Russia denies this of course.

Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, has renewed his push for the Ukrainian government to pursue investigations into political opponents of Mr. Trump.

Meet Trump & Giuliani’s operative’s tasked with influencing politicians & prosecutors in Ukraine:

📌Ukrainian Igor Fruman and Russian-born Lev Parnas


The Trump adm is released almost $400 million worth of military assistance for URN, unplugging the aid after weeks of speculation that the US might withhold the cash as part of a broad reassessment of US policy in confronting RU aggression in UKN.
🔑Russia has continually denied military involvement in Ukraine despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. In the battle of Ilovaysk (Aug 2014) resulted in hundreds of deaths on both sides.

Ukraine drawing up roadmap to implement peace deal for Donbass: Zelenskiy


Zelensky made overtures to abide more closely to the Minsk peace deal w/ Russia, which would require voting in the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.
9/16/19 .

🔑It would be impossible for a divided Ukraine to join NATO, which would please Putin immensely.

'Long way to go' before Russia-Ukraine repair relations despite prisoner swap, experts say

🔑Was Zelenski threatened/forced to withdraw Ukrainian forces along the Donbas region under a threat of another violent conflict?

Ukraine’s troops prepare for mutual withdrawal along Donbas frontline

Of course Russia did not comply:

🔑Putin, Mogilevich & Firtash goal:

The Commission wants to secure reliable and uninterruptible Russian gas transit through Ukraine into EU countries
📌Note: The contract between Ukraine’s Naftogaz and Gazprom is valid until the end of December 2019. In 2018, 40% of gas supplied by Russia to the EU was delivered within this contract.

Trump is making Putin very happy:

Putin emerges as a winner in Washington's Ukraine turmoil
🔑Trump’s narrative casting Ukraine as a corrupt, dysfunctional place -- allows Moscow to play up a favorite official theme:

Ukraine's shift away from the Russia orbit has led only to chaos, poverty, and conflict.
🔑For Putin, the Ukraine mess in the US is another chance to remind a Russian audience that there is no alternative to his form of authoritarian rule.
🔑The breakup of the Soviet Union, something Putin has called the "greatest geopolitical catastrophe" of the 20th century.

🔑On many occasions, Putin has made it clear he does not consider Ukraine to be a legitimate state.
🔑In a June interview with American film director Oliver Stone, Putin said he thought the reunion of Russia and Ukraine was "inevitable."

"For example, I believe that Russians and Ukrainians are actually one people," Putin said.
To conclude is the Biden story is a convenient cover & deflection for Trump’s actions pressuring Zelenski to drop the Minsk accord & cede the Donbas to Putin to avoid the threat of another aggressive military attack reminiscent of the summer 2014?

If ceded, drop sanctions?
🔑Bottom line Putin seeks the reunification of the former Soviet Union. and Sanction relief.

🔑What role is Trump playing to aid this objective?

🔑Is this the quid pro quo Trump promised Putin for boosting him into the WH?
🔑Is the crowd strike comment code warning of another cyber/military attack like the July 11, 2014 event?

🔑Or is it an effort to descedit the findings of Crowdstrike which forensically determined RU’s Fancy Bear’s hacked the DNC server?

🔑Or both?
🔑TeamTrump has been working on some version of a “Ukrainian Peace Plan” since Trump was inaugurated.

Quid pro quo?
