Chart of the Day: Armies Gather for an Apocalyptic Ukrainian War – Doomsday Clock Advances Closer to Midnight

Armies gather for an Apocalyptic Ukrainian war. Just recently, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev gave an interview and warned NATO of nuclear war if Russia is defeated in Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov echoed these sentiments and said, “Do not underestimate the threat of nuclear war.” NATO and the west are not backing down and instead amping up the war in earnest.

The events we are witnessing in Ukraine are horrific. See here and here for more recent details of what is happening on the ground in the Ukrainian war. Below are several reports of what has been recently happening in the Ukrainian war.

Below is a montage of recent reports on events on the ground in Ukraine. It describes a hellish landscape that is only set to worsen.

See in the video below a recent report from Kherson, Ukraine, which is emblematic of what is happening in many other areas of Ukraine.

Ukraine will get an advanced US-built Patriot defense missile system to try to counter Russian missile and drone attacks, the White House has confirmed. The bottom line is military equipment is being poured into the region.

Apparently, in the video below, are hordes of eastern Russians being mobilized and soon heading to Ukraine for a big offense.

Reminiscent of scenes from WWI, trench warfare has become commonplace, as shown in the close combat between a Russian and Ukrainian Soldier in the video below.

Poland said it would send its German-made tanks to Ukraine, regardless of any objections from Berlin. As VOA’s Henry Ridgwell reports, Germany is under intense pressure from allies to send its Leopard 2 tanks to aid Kyiv’s forces – but is refusing to make a quick decision.

Perhaps in a way to scare the US, a Russian ship armed with unstoppable Mach-8 nuclear-capable hypersonic cruise missiles has deviated from its course heading toward the US.

Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said the United States must provide Ukraine with the military equipment it needs to defeat Russia and insisted ongoing support is “in America’s best interest.” Pompeo, who is also the former Director of the CIA, said providing Ukraine with support is the fastest way to end the war. This seems to echo many of our leaders in Washington DC – see here a Congressional contingent who went to Kyiv in support of the US and NATO military build-up.

Pompeo spoke amid reports the US is preparing to send a shipment of M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine while European countries are also weighing sending further arms to Kyiv. See Pompeo’s remarks in the video below and learn more here.

Meanwhile, the Biden administration has said it will send 30 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, in a significant breakthrough and escalation after weeks of debate, as well as division over the issue within the NATO alliance.

What have been the results of this kind of talk?

This year, the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moves the hands of the Doomsday Clock forward, largely (though not exclusively) because of the mounting dangers of the war in Ukraine. The Clock now stands at 90 seconds to midnight – the closest to global catastrophe it has ever been. See the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists display their announcement in the video below.

Since its inception in 1947, the Doomsday Clock was initially used to represent the danger posed by nuclear weapons. The move forward closer to midnight was due “largely, though not exclusively, because of the mounting dangers in the war in Ukraine,” Rachel Bronson, current president and CEO of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, said at the press conference. See this in the chart below, the ups and downs of this historical trend, and learn more here.

Below is a short video showing another version of this Doomsday clock timeline.

Below is a longer form video showing the rationale of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists regarding why the Doomsday clock timeline has been moved closer to midnight.

If NATO successfully fights off the “monster” Putin and the Russian offensive, we may have to remove Putin and go all the way to Moscow. There will be no doubt that we will be met with flowers and praise from the Russian people when we enter Moscow – like so many times in the past 50 years of American international adventurism [satire].


Or, on the defeat of Putin, Russia could descend into factional fighting amongst vying regional oligarchs, each holding their part of the 6,000 stashes of loose nukes floating around the region. Yikes!

Yes, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists had good reason to advance the Doomsday clock.

  1. The decision to notch up the West’s involvement in the Ukrainian civil war with Russia on one side and the WEF and Soros/Schwab on the other was just approved in Davos and the globalists minions in the vassal states of the West are dutifully executing the plan. A simple meeting to solve the impasse and to remove the threat is obviously not even considered. I do have the feeling that the demons (they certainly look the part) that push this agenda don’t care about humanity’s future. Maybe they see it as a shortcut to remove the desired 80% of the world population.

  2. The latest commitment to send tanks and other heavy weapons to Ukraine will certainly change the war there. As a result, the war will take Ukraine longer to lose and more Ukrainians will die unnecessarily as the conflict is protracted for no reason. The Russians will destroy the new equipment along with the personnel as soon as it is deployed. It is all just drone fodder for the Russians since no meaningful quantity of equipment is being sent as requested by the Ukraine military.
    Russia will win and do with the Ukraine as it pleases. The only unknown is what the Ukraine death toll will be when it is over. I choose to be in denial that there will be a world ending nuclear war even so it is odds on probable.

  3. If Pompeo is involved then nothing good can come of this. That tool along with the rest of the permanent state would rather kill us all than lose their power….

  4. The elephant in the room from day one has been why no attempt has been made to negotiate a cease fire and peace agreement.
    The WEF elites and there talking heads at NATO and positioned in governments are waging a proxy war and could not care less about Ukrainian lives.
    This will not end well .

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
