Russian analyst wants to ‘flood’ US enemies with weapons: ‘Create danger’

Russian analyst Igor Shishkin recently suggested inundating the United States’ enemies with weapons to create “fear” and “danger,” which would force the United States to negotiate with Russia over providing aid to the United States Ukraine goes.

“The West is planning to inflict a strategic defeat on us,” Shishkin said during a segment on a Russian TV show hosted by Roman Babayan. “Right now we need to create a threat to the US, specifically the United States, not Europe.”

The segment, which included English subtitles, was posted to Twitter by Julia Davis, columnist at The Daily Beast and creator of the Russian Media Monitor, on Saturday.

Shishkin explained what that threat would look like, saying one method would be to “flood all enemies of the US with guns to blow up American military bases.” The Russian analyst added: “Until the US is in the position we are in, where we are forced to engage in combat operations, have to expend our resources and our people die, the United States should end up in the same position at the top .”

He continued: “The US has no incentive to sit down at a negotiating table. They are completely covered in chocolate, they do not suffer losses, but Europe does, we suffer losses, as far as Ukraine nobody takes them into account, and the United States only benefits. Until they are put in danger, they will not negotiate.”

Responding to Shishkin’s comments, retired US Navy admiral James Stavridis trolled the analyst, saying that Russia is already running out of guns to do such a thing.

“Not only do they not understand the United States — they don’t understand that if they are running out of guns themselves, they cannot flood other countries with guns,” Stavridis tweeted.

Russia is running out of equipment and missiles needed to continue its war against Ukraine. Last week Alexander Štupun, spokesman for the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, said Russian troops are having trouble obtaining military uniforms and must buy them at their own expense or try to get them from the authorities as humanitarian aid.

“Supplying the mobilized with helmets and body armor remains problematic,” said Štupun.

On Friday, Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov announced that as of Oct. 12 Moscow had 609 missiles left over from the 1,844 missiles it originally had when it first invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24, adding that the Victory over the Russian military was “inevitable”.

Meanwhile, some prominent figures on Russian state television who were once pro-war supporters recently changed their tone when they criticized the mobilization of Russian troops, particularly after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the “partial mobilization” of reservists to fight in Ukraine .

The editor-in-chief of state media company RT, Margarita Simonyan, said on her Telegram channel that her office had been inundated with complaints about “violations” in mobilization, with some people being asked to serve when they were not authorized to do so.

“We are dealing with distortions of mobilization. We have entire departments – myself included – that are dropping everything, postponing our regular work and trying to get justice for everyone who has been wrongly mobilized,” Simonyan said.

Last month, during an appearance on the Russia 1 program, Evening with Vladimir Solovyovshe said that “something has to be done about it. We shouldn’t upset people.”

Babayan also criticized Russia’s “partial mobilization,” telling his viewers last month, “You know what I’m afraid of? I want those who are really needed to be mobilized.”

He added that recruiting officers are “rounding up a bunch of people without having a clear understanding of whether that person is currently needed by the nation” and whether “he will be of any use.”
