That’s Russia’s goal by surgical strikes to rid Ukraine of its internal, regional and broader menace.

Once Moscow’s goals are achieved, conflict will end.

It was long overdue and vital for regional and broader security.

Nazi militants aside, if Ukrainian conscripts wanting no part of war lay down their arms and refuse to fight, things can be resolved in short order.

On Friday, the Biden regime and EU vassal states ruptured relations with Moscow more than already by sanctioning Vladimir Putin, Sergey Lavrov, Sergey Shoigu, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, members of Russia’s Security Council, and other  officials — a harebrained action that furthers nothing strategic.

Targeted officials were falsely called “responsible for Russia’s unprovoked (sic) and unlawful (sic) further invasion of Ukraine (sic), a” Nazi-infested fascist state the Biden regime despicably called “democratic (sic).”

Separately on Friday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow “stopped doing business as usual with” hegemon USA-dominated NATO/EU vassal states “long…ago,” adding:

“The West failed to impose on Moscow the idea that they are exclusive and that Russia is a colony.”

“We proceed from our own interests and security interests.”

“We do what is beneficial to us as a country, as a people.”

“We defend ourselves.”

“We offered to do it together.”

“We had a dialogue and offered a lot within the framework of collective security.”

“When this did not happen (because of US imperial arrogance), we moved on to the next stage” in defending and protecting Russia’s security and related interests.

On the same day, Sergey Lavrov minced no words as following, saying:

In cahoots with the US-dominated West, the “openly Russopophobic and genocidal…Kiev regime…target(ed) (Donbass with terrorizing) firepower” for the past 8 yeas.

Former Nazi Ukrainian PM Yatsenyuk called four million Donetsk and Lugansk residents “non-humans.”

US installed puppet Zelensky — a caricature of a leader, an imitation one, polar opposite the real thing — called the people of Donbass “species.”

Since the Obama/Biden regime’s Feb. 2014 Maidan coup in Kiev — transforming Ukraine into a Nazi-infested fascist dictatorship — the US-dominated West “turn(ed) a blind eye” to its genocidal crimes of war and against humanity since that time.

“They encouraged (and supported) rampant neo-Nazism…Russophobia,” and a permanent state of war along Russia’s borders.

Hegemon USA-dominated NATO went all-out to “sabotage and dismantle Minsk (conflict resolution) agreements” to maintain a state of perpetual war over peace and stability in central Europe.

Vladimir Putin authorized a special military operation to turn things around by “demilitari(zing) and de(Nazify(ing) Ukraine (to restore peace and afford its people a chance to a) future in freedom once they had freed themselves from (the scourge of) this (oppressive) yoke.”

Because of Kiev’s illegal blockade of Donbass — encouraged and supported by the US-dominated West — over 100 Russian convoys delivered more than 100,000 tons of humanitarian supplies to its long-suffering people — notably food, medical supplies and other essentials to life and well-being.

In response to Zelensky’s call for talks with Russia to include security guarantees, Lavrov slammed him, saying:

He “lied and cheated.”

Along with Ukraine’s predecessor regime, “he bluntly refused to fulfill the Minsk agreements while appealing to his Western patrons to convene Normandy format meetings, with or without a reason, and did not guarantee that these meetings would produce any real results.”

He also wants “to negotiate (Ukraine’s) accession to NATO” — a nonstarter for Moscow.

And his regime wants Kiev freed of its commitment not to be nuclearized.

He lied saying he’s “willing to discuss a neutral status” for Ukraine.

A US-installed puppet, he’s beholden to his higher power in Washington.

Kiev’s foreign controlled fascist regime abandoned the rule of law by terrorizing its Russian-speaking people and other Ukrainians wanting to live free — along with waging years of genocidal war on Donbass.

Russia’s special military operation is all about assuring the demilitarization and de-Nazification of Ukraine — Vladimir Putin, Lavrov and other Russian said and mean.

Ongoing operations are not about war to conquer, occupy and control the country, far from it.

No nation understands the scourge of Nazism more keenly than Russia.

On the 80th anniversary of its Great Patriotic War last June, Vladimir Putin said the following:

“(H)aving conquered almost all of Europe…the Nazis…attacked the USSR” in June 1941.

Its Great Patriotic War was “the bloodiest in the history of our country.”

“Tens of millions of people died, and (Russia’s) economic potential and cultural heritage were severely damaged.”

Putin expressed gratitude to Red Army heroes and “home front workers.”

They courageously “defended the independence and dignity of the Motherland, but also saved Europe and the world from (Nazi) enslavement.”

Without Soviet Russia’s indispensable contribution against the scourge of Nazi tyranny, the war’s outcome might been vastly different.

The Red Army’s lead role in defeating Nazi Germany proved decisive.

Its forces defeated the scourge of Nazism.

US/UK and other forces played a relatively minor role in liberating Europe compared to what Russia accomplished.

They were junior partners to the Red Army’s war effort — at the cost of about 27 million lost lives, immense suffering of its people, and devastation to its cities and towns.

At war’s end in Europe, the scourge of Nazism relocated from Berlin to Washington and other key Western capitals.

When the Cold War ended after Soviet Russia’s dissolution in December 1991, Moscow hoped for what Putin called “a common victory for Europe.”

It wasn’t to be because of US hegemonic aims, Putin explaining:

“(A) different approach prevailed…based on the expansion of” NATO eastward — in spite of vowing “not one inch” in that direction.

Instead of mutual cooperation throughout Europe, there was “rapid growth of mutual distrust” for invented reasons, clearly no legitimate ones.

Yet “a precedent (was) created” not easily overcome.

Multiple “waves of NATO expansion…buried hopes for a continent without dividing lines.”

“(M)any countries were faced with an artificial choice – to be either with the collective West or with Russia. In fact, it was an ultimatum.”

“The consequences of such an aggressive policy can be seen in” the Obama/Biden’s 2014 coup d’etat against democratic Ukraine — transforming the country into a fascist dictatorship bordering Russia.

From Soviet Russia’s dissolution over 30 years ago to the present day, “the entire system of European security has seriously degraded,” Putin stressed, adding:

“Tensions are growing, and the risks of a new arms race are becoming real.”

“We are missing out on the enormous opportunities that cooperation gives us, all the more so it is so important now, when we are all faced with common challenges.”

What conclusions can be drawn? What lessons can be learned, Putin asked?

“(T)he entire post-war history of Greater Europe confirms that the prosperity and security of our common continent is possible only through the joint efforts of all countries, including Russia.”

“Because Russia is one of the largest European states” population-wise, the world’s largest territorially.

“And we feel our inseparable cultural” ties to the continent.

Russia is a leading world advocate of peace, stability, cooperative relations with other nations, confrontation with none, and compliance with international law.

Hegemon USA and its imperial partners follow polar opposite standards in pursuing their diabolical interests at the expense of invented enemies like Russia.

US-installed tyrannical rule in Ukraine has threatened Moscow’s security for the past 8 years.

Putin and other senior Russian officials drew a line in the sand.

No longer will they tolerate US hegemonic aims directly or through vassal states like Ukraine without responding to their menacing scourge.

Russia’s demilitarizing and NeNazification campaign against Ukraine is a shot across the bow of the scourge it’s committed to challenge in defense of its motherland’s security.
