Virtue signalling at its finest. From Stephen Karganovic at strategic-culture.org:
The cynicism of this bogus humanitarian campaign, in which all the major institutions of the collective West are taking part, is appalling.
I originally wanted the title of this text to read “for Ukraine,” but I quickly realised that I must correct myself. Ukraine as such is irrelevant here and nobody in the West would bother to collect and ship winter assistance if the beneficiary were merely Ukraine or its wretched inhabitants. The winter assistance machinery that is being activated presumably for reasons of compassion has nothing to do with helping people in need. It is motivated by the same rationale and guided by exactly the same strategic imperatives as eighty years ago, when Operation Barbarossa got stuck in the East in the terrible winter of 1941/1942.
This time around, the “humanitarian” relief activities organised to improve things on the Eastern Front are not confined to Nazi Germany and its propagandised population. It is a Pan-European project undertaken by its successor entity which, ironically, happens to be virtually coterminous with the Nazi occupied Europe of that era.
Indeed, the Winterhilfe machinery is getting into high gear, the highly emblematic difference being that its symbolic headquarters this time is not in Berlin, but in the would-be spiritual centre of pagan Europe, the Vatican. The mantle may appear slightly different, but the Kampf against Russia and the civilisation it epitomises remains the same. The assistance being gathered by the united West under a humanitarian guise is not intended for the sham state of Ukraine or to ease the suffering of its unfortunate citizens, who this winter must endure the freezing consequences of their foreign satraps’ criminal folly. It is intended for the strengthening of the collective West’s Ost-Front, cynically calculated to keep the Ukrainian cannot fodder moderately warm and willing to suicidally fight a bit longer while a military or political solution, or both, is being sought for a pre-empted Blitzkrieg obviously gone awry.
