... or a result of continuous abuse of all kinds of substances in Holland, but I think Russians should apologize to Estonians for making jokes about Estonians being the slowest people on Earth. Now we know who are the slowest in the head, and they are Dutch (LOL) allegedly intelligence services. 9 years after the removal of the legitimate government in Kiev sponsored by the West, and months after the start of SMO, Dutch intel people finally noticed, LOL)))
The Ukraine conflict is really about a greater confrontation between the West and Russia, while China challenges the world order based on Western values, according to the 2022 annual report by the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) of the Netherlands. Published this week, the report claims that Russia sees itself “not only at war with Ukraine, but also at war with the West,” while the West considers the conflict to be “also about our norms, values, freedom and prosperity.” According to the AIVD, while Ukraine is the military battleground, to Moscow the broader conflict is “about geopolitical relations in the world.” Russia believes it to be an existential conflict and is trying to “undermine Western democracies,” the Dutch spies have claimed. More than just a military conflict between two countries, the fighting in Ukraine “suddenly accelerated developments that have been going on in the world for a long time, changed the relationships between groups of countries, and can influence how countries interact with each other for a long time to come. In short, it turned out to be a geopolitical system shock,” the AIVD said.
Then RT concludes:
AIVD accused China of wanting to replace the “international order based on Western values,” with a world order in which Beijing would be on top. The AIVD findings come as the government of Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced plans to restrict exports of semiconductor-producing equipment to China. The US has been pressuring the Netherlands to do so for months.
Per this chip issue. For China the horizon of closing most of its needs in chip manufacturing is year-two maximum, Russia also is investing heavily both in chip production and development of lithography. For Russia this horizon is around 2026-27. This is what I learned just recently from not just professional Sinologist but a person directly involved with microelectronics and who permanently resides in China for many years. As any "sanctions" activity by the West this too will end up in a complete failure due to the fact that those people are not very good in strategic planning and assessment of resources.
But the question stands--where were those Dutch spies, under what stone were they sleeping to not know that Russians have been stating openly about the conflict with the West for years, including from Putin himself, be that... drum roll... in his 2007 Munich speech to Russia's December 2021 Ultimatum. So, I guess we now know who runs Dutch national security circuit and the only thing we can say is that they are dutch (look up the street meaning of this term;)) Or as Russian anecdote about imprisoned Indians goes: and only three years after imprisonment did the Sharp Eye notice that their cell was missing the outside wall.
