It takes a Nigerian security expert, who worked in the UK, to raise the question that no one else dare raise: the influence of Rishi Sunak’s (Asian) Indian heritage and of his wife, a citizen of India, on UK relations with Ukraine and Russia, if Rishi becomes British Prime Minister. India, after all, is a longtime ally of Russia, and is seemingly taking Russia’s side. Furthermore, he points out that the departure of Boris Johnson is “a win for the Russians”. However, he doesn’t go so far as to ask if the cabinet coup against Boris, led by Rishi Sunak, was part of a Russian influence campaign.
Former British police officer, Vince Onyekwelu, discussing Ukraine and the campaign for Conservative leader-British Prime Minister on Channels TV Nigeria July 25 2022 https://youtu.be/324vGeuKlgY
Excerpt at 33 min 11 sec:
“You’re a former British officer and I want to leverage on your experience. Do you see a situation where because Prime Minister Johnson is on his way out he will be Prime Minister only until September the fifth and possibly the authorities there might want to conclude this training because the Ukrainians are anxious they don’t know who is going to take over after him and if the person is going to have the same level of robust support particularly military support given Britain’s own economic difficulties itself that so do you see a situation where this kind of military training could be speeded up so that these troops can return to Ukraine and join the battle so to speak.”
33.56 Vince Onyekwelu, former British Police officer:
“Oh yes oh definitely yes most of the the weapons that these Ukrainians are coming to the UK to be trained on, are not the kind of weapons that you export to Ukraine. So, who is going to use it. Who is going to implement it. So most of them will need about three months training minimum, if you want to get a professional trained for those weapons and I’m not sure the Europeans have three months on their side because they never expected that Mr Johnson is going to to be leaving and for Putin I think Putin sees that as a victory because they know that Mr. Johnson has not been friendly to them. The idea of Johnson departing from the British Prime Minister position is going to be a win for the Russians.
Now look at the two candidates of the Conservative party that is coming please:
Truss government Foreign minister to the UK so obviously Miss Truss will most likely continue these kind of trainings… because she is the current foreign Foreign Affairs Minister but what of Mr Rishi Mr Rish who is the chancellor of the exchequer obviously coming from an Indian background and with the wife being a billionaire in U.S dollars.
The question is will his Indian heritage, who is seemingly supporting the Russians will it have an influence on Mr Rishi uh becoming the new Prime Minister of the UK.
So Miss Truss winning seems to be like she’s gonna support the policies of Mr Johnson but Mr Rishi winning may be gonna be probably follow the wife is a belonging for the interest of his Indian background. So the Russians sitting enjoying this.
Come to look at what’s happening in Israel. The Israel government is about to have a reshuffle they’re going to depose again the sixth pole in the past five years that’s a win-win for the Russians also so these divisions you’re seeing in certain European countries is a win for the Russians who actually now fighting to control the port of Odessa….”https://youtu.be/324vGeuKlgY [Text excerpt from YouTube transcript-closed captions slightly corrected against the original audio.

“in terms of what can end this conflict yeah well i’m not going to say that Kissinger lost it well probably not he probably has a clear mind still at his age but uh he has a very ambivalent track record in terms of his activities and ideas and and concepts that he advocated over decades uh. For instance in the 1970s he was one of the advocates of the détente between Soviet Union and US which was seen by many as a big achievement but then other people said uh well he was alwavs offering uh some concessions to Moscow…”

Blog comment: Kissinger has been a friend-advisor to Putin for many years. Despite the title and discussion, Kissinger doesn’t appear to have changed his previous position, but rather to have clarified it. At WEF, he suggested that Russia return to the pre-February 24th status (status quo ante) with Russia occupying Crimea and part of Eastern Ukraine, but not keeping newly taken territory, as conditions for peace: “Henry Kissinger tells Davos elite to give in to Russia” by James Sweet, May 24, 2022 02:37 PM Excerpt: “Ideally, the dividing line should be a return to the status quo ante.” https://web.archive.org/web/20220626042701/https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/henry-kissinger-tells-davos-elite-to-give-in-to-russia
