    It looks like the Russian patriots are being withdrawn, and a sell-out team will replace them. Pregozhin was goaded into a mutiny and the consequences of that failing now follow. The takeover by the jackals must have been all in the plan. It feels bad for Russia’s national survival. Surovikin is probably not in control any longer at the battlefront. The pieces are dropping into place to dismantle Russia’s war effort from many angles. Alex covers this saying he has no doubt Surovikin was not involved in Pregozhin’s mutiny. He clearly wonders whether the Kramatorsk missile attack was a Ukrainian false flag.
