ISIS is Putin's second 'black swan' after Prigozhin

So what is the most important result of the terrorist attack in Moscow?

The main thing is that a wild and unlimited force has officially emerged among the Russian Federation's opponents.

It used to be the other way around. In the past, the Kremlin's specific advantage was that virtually all violent and primitive organizations were friends and cooperated with it.

“Hamas, Hezbollah, the Houthis, the Taliban, the Syrian and Korean bloody dictators - all of these were Putin's effective allies, whom he used to indirectly attack us.”

And none of the terrorist regimes, none of the terrorist communities were against Russia.

Now such a power has loudly and convincingly declared its existence.

If those who are behind this bloody act are not stupid, they will follow the path of their 'colleagues' in the Middle East.

Just as the Houthis are destroying oil trade in the Red Sea, they will be able to destroy Russia's trade in liquefied natural gas, oil, and regular gas. They will be able to cut off transportation and telecommunications lines.

I see no reason why this force will abide by the laws and customs of war, or the law of the sea, as Ukraine is now forced to do, and which the alliance of Moscow and various cannibals does not actually abide by.

“As it turns out, not only supporters of Russia but also those who hate it can play the game of violating the principles of humanity.”

And it will not be us.

A symbolic coincidence. On the eve of the terrorist attack, Western countries simultaneously sent a signal to Kyiv and Moscow. To Russia, they signaled the possibility of something terrible happening in Putin's rear. They also urged Ukraine to stop launching devastating attacks on Russian infrastructure.

***

This is the second black swan since February 2012, after Prigozhin’s riot.

“This swan seems to be speaking to the Russians in Russian and asking: why have you now thrown all your resources into killing as many Ukrainians as possible, destroying as much of Ukraine as possible, while you are being killed by completely different people? Why are you trying to conquer a country whose people have not committed a single terrorist act against you on your territory, while you are being shot by hundreds right in your capital by representatives of a completely different community?”

What kind of meaningless and suicidal course is this against the West and Ukraine, who certainly never dreamed of a war with you, for whom this war was a fear, the greatest horror?

***

Once again, if the brutal people behind the attack on Crocus prove to be smart and consistent, they will be able to do much more damage to Russia than even the daily killing of several dozen Russians.

How to do this can be learned from Russia and its terrorist friends.
