‘Russian Invasion Survival Manual’ To Be Issued To Citizens In European Union

What can you say?


Report: “Russian Invasion Survival Manual” To Be Issued To Citizens In European Union (SHFTplan, Jan 16, 2015):

While most Americans discount the possibility of a major conflict with Russia, Europeans who have seen two great wars in the last century know better.

The country of Lithuania, much like its neighbors, is preparing for a full-out invasion by Russian forces and their government is issuing a survival manual to its citizens. Though the complete details have yet to be released, the manual, among other things, advises citizens to “keep a sound mind, don’t panic and don’t lose clear thinking.

Lithuanian Defense Minister Juozas Olekas unveiled the 100-page public information pamphlet last Tuesday at a press conference in Vilnius. The book, “How to act in extreme situations or instances of war” aims to educate the country’s citizens on what to do in the case of an invasion.

The manual instructs Lithuanians how to “act during the organization of civil resistance, but also how to act under battlefield conditions,” in addition to containing information on governmental changes following a declaration of war and procedures for evacuating a building, according to Olekas.

The book suggests demonstrations and strikes or “at least doing your job worse than usual” as means of resisting foreign occupation. It also advises citizens to use social media to organize resistance and promotes staging cyber-attacks against the enemy.

In typical government fashion, the manual seems to discount the possibility that a Russian invasion will include the horrors often associated with war, advising citizens not to worry because “gunshots just outside your window are not the end of the world.”

Of course, should gunshots erupt outside of your window as a result of a massive onslaught of tanks, armored personnel carriers and infantry, it would be, by definition, the end of the world one has come to know.

The ‘Survival Manual’ seems to focus more on peaceful demonstrations and cyber warfare, rather than the obvious, which would more than likely involve the exchange of automatic gunfire, artillery, and Russia’s famed World War II era Katyusha rocket launchers, each of which are capable of firing over one ton of ordnance in 7-10 seconds in what are dubbed saturation bombardment salvos.

But don’t panic because this is not the end of the world if it’s happening in your neighborhood:

Lithuania is not the only country concerned with an impending Russian invasion. In March of last year, shortly after the Ukrainian crisis began, Poland called up military reserve troops for the first time since World War II.

According to a report from The Week Polish military reservists are being called up by the thousands, presumably to prepare for the possibility of not just spillover, but all out military confrontation with Russia.

At least 7,000 reservists have been recalled to the colours for immediate exercises lasting between 10 and 30 days.

They’re told by the Polish authorities that the call-ups are “routine”: but the men say they haven’t been asked before and they’re well aware of the growing alarm in Warsaw at President Putin’s aggression. Three weeks ago, their Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, called a press conference to warn that “the world stands on the brink of conflict, the consequences of which are not foreseen… Not everyone in Europe is aware of this situation.”

A conflict is brewing and everyone knows it.On Wednesday Russia made two key strategic moves that show just how tense the situation has become. First, they began selling U.S. dollar reserves, effectively divorcing themselves from dollar hegemony in the region. Second, in a show of force directly aimed at E.U. leaders they cut off 60% of their gas supplies to Europe in the middle of winter.

Observing the actions of Russia, the Europeans, and the United States over the last year should make it obvious what is happening.

The world’s super powers are preparing for a global confrontation.

If this is really the case – and all indicators suggest it is – then it would behoove the governments of Lithuania, Poland and other European nations that border Russia to expand their survival manuals to include some additional suggestions.

  • Prepare to bug out and have a plan to do so when the time comes. Yes, we realize the government says that military confrontations and bullets flying outside of your front window are no cause for concern, but just in case that terrifies you, consider creating a plan to evacuate your immediate area. Have a secondary location – a retreat or pre-planned meeting spot owned by friends or family.
  • You’ll need food and be sure some of it is hidden. There is a reason for the Third Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and it’s because during times of war soldiers will pillage everything they can. Your food and drink will be first on their list. And while they might not outright execute you or cause direct harm, they will take the very items you’ll need to survive. This means that in addition to the reserve supplies in your home, consider hiding some food, even if that means burying it on public lands deep in the wilderness (where you might in fact be bugging out to if it hits the fan). Be sure to stock the 11 emergency foods that last a lifetime and consider building a longer-term food supply.
  • You’ll also need medicine. The fact is that life saving medicines are one of the first things to disappear when real crisis strikes. When Greece experienced their monetary event and credit dried up several years ago, access to critical medicines was non existent. Consider that this was during peacetime and Greece was a member of the European Union which had plenty of supplies on hand, yet they still couldn’t get what they needed. Now think about what happens to supply lines and patient prioritization in the middle of an invasion. There are numerous medical supplies that might be of interest during a war, including antibioticsbattlefield blood clotting bandages, tourniquets, emergency splints, and a basic suturing and surgical kit. If bullets and bombs are flying you should plan on injuries to friends and loved ones.
  • Guns, Ammunition, Body Armor. Surprisingly, this should have been one of the top strategies mentioned in the Russian Invasion Survival Manual, yet we understand that such a suggestion might make anti-gun advocates a bit nervous. We’re sure the government has it all under control, but because what they are suggesting might happen is nothing short of World War III, we urge you to consider some self defense armaments. They might be useful if you are trying to escape a particular war-torn region or to defend yourself against looters and bandits who failed to set aside food, water and other supplies.

If war is coming then there is not much we can do but prepare to deal with it. And though stockpiling supplies and developing strategies to deal with the fallout may not guarantee your safety, it will certainly increase your odds.

  1. What rubbish. Russia is busy making money, and rebuilding, any idea it intends to invade anyone is US propaganda. Russia is waging an economic war, and succeeding far more than any fool military attack.

    They promised Greece food if they drop out of the EU.

    Switzerland national bank drops an economic bomb on other greedy guts…..their currency is so strong, they knock the Euro and USD to the wall. Switzerland joined BRICS a few months ago.

    Russia has been waging a very successful war against the west without firing a single shot or invading anyone.

    Don’t believe this nonsense. It is probably from Warren Buffet or George Soros.
    Total nonsense. Military force is a final resort, and Russia is a long way away from that.

  2. To my friend at IU, thanks for the open letter, I wish there were a way to get it to him, but I think he is aware of its content. The elegance of his operation from November of 2010 until now has been to war on his own terms, not using arms or bombs, but something far more powerful………………economics. I will send your link to friends, and bookmark the site. The weakest link in the chain the US held over the world was economic, and due to Putin’s leadership, the rest of the world was able to break that chain, and build a new economy, isolating the US economically from the rest of the world. When the US boasts how isolated Russia has become, as is so often the case, it ought to have spoken into a mirror.

    The US dollar is now used in about 30% of world economies to complete international deals, down from 100% five years ago. When the EU breaks from it, and the first steps (cutting half of their transactions into the basket of currencies BRICS offers) now commencing, that percentage will drop even farther…….the EU is the last remaining economic union keeping the dollar afloat. As that breaks up, so goes the US dollar.

    Soon, the US will know what it is like to be one currency among many…….it will be a huge shock to most Americans……..and it might just shake a few away from US propaganda to seek the truth.

    They started small and quiet, they saw what happened to nations that spoke openly against US financial domination……….just look at Iraq.

    The nations supposedly against Russia are all buried in debt, the US and EU. The US has lost all credibility, respect and trust.

    Putin has quietly and methodically established a sister economy to the existing one, he didn’t waste one day re-inventing the wheel. The only difference was establishment of an economic system using an open basket of currencies for member nations. An electronic currency, similar to Hugo Chavez’s Sucre, allowed all member nations to trade directly with each other, leaving the dollar out. The electronic currency translates the value of each currency at the time of transaction, making need for any world reserve currency obsolete. This new economic system has knocked the underpinnings of the US foreign based economy out for good.

    Even if they destroyed Russia completely, the world will never go back to a world reserve currency system any more than to a horse and buggy. The day of US dominance of the world economy is past, and nothing the greedy guts do will change that fact. Nobody wants to be under the financial thumb of another country.

    Putin has been very careful to stay with his game plan, and his success has been astonishing. It bespeaks the disgust with which the world views the US better than a thousand books. The use of the US dollar in completing international transactions has dropped from 100% to about 30%……the remaining market being the EU. So, the EU is now Putin’s focus.

    Putin is offering a very hungry and poverty laden Greece an alternative to suffering…………just drop membership in the EU and join them. It is but a matter of time before all people demand BRICS as a better economic system for their own interests, and the EU will dump the dollar. When that happens, the dollar will collapse.

    Dismantling the EU piece by piece is one quiet way to operate.

    Switzerland joined BRICS a few months ago. What the SNB did last week will begin to be felt in the coming weeks. The Swiss currency is very strong compared to the EU or US, and it will keep rising. The latest idea is to allow 50% basket of currencies (BRICS) and 50% USD in the EU market place. That is the beginning of the final end for the US dollar.

    Without EU support, the dollar is finished. Nobody else uses it. Already, the greedy guts at the mint and in the FED are sitting on worthless piles of paper currency nobody wants.

    After OPEC kicked the Petrodollar to the curb a few weeks back by refusing to cut production, it became clear to anyone OPEC is ready to follow Turkey, Qatar and Iran and others………join openly with BRICS, and dump the dollar. Already, they are doing major deals with Russia and China, and the deals are not being completed in dollars.

    We are down to weeks or days before they openly ditch the dollar. The US troops that have kept the kings on their thrones will be replaced by Chinese or Russians. The US is so hated in the middle east, it has become too great a political cost to use their troops…….this final invasion of Iraq is madness. Creating ISIS to wage a meaningless war with itself…..what sane nation does such things?

    The US has lost the middle east. The only economic power left is the EU, and the EU is comprised of debt laden nations. The US itself already has debt to GDP of 100.6%
    UK: 470.4% debt to GDP
    France:270.6% debt to GDP
    Germany: 224.6% (the so-called strong man of the EU) debt to GDP
    Greece: 296.9% debt to GDP
    Ireland: 1066.9% debt to GDP (I had to double check this number)
    Portugal: 294% debt to GDP
    Spain: 244% debt to GDP
    Italy: 179.1% debt to GDP

    Now, look at a few BRICS members:
    Brazil: 25.9% debt to GDP
    Russia: 33.3% debt to GDP
    India: 25.3% debt to GDP
    China: 6.7% debt to GDP (but, they lie about everything)
    I could not find numbers on South Africa, the S in BRICS.
    Switzerland is also a very fiscally safe member, so is Qatar and many other BRICS members.

    Don’t worry about Putin, he has not made a wrong step yet.

  3. The only threat to the EU is not Putin but the EU-polticians. They even did not notice what kind of politicians are on their side in the Ukrain. I quote in my own words from an interview with Valentina Lisitsa: “From Febr. 2014 wanted democracy. The situation escalated then and ‘„alten“ neuen Oligarchen’ came in. Ukrains are aware of the manipulation from both sides. The Maidan-people aren’t only against Putin but also against Poroschenko c.s. Beforr Jazenjuk became president he sold 8 yrs old Range Rover for at least 122.000 usd to P. Petrenko, the present minister of ‘Justice’. The only problem was that his Range Rover was worth about 17500 usd. ” The most naive politician I ever heard of last time, namely Timmermans from Holland, is now vice -present of the EU.
