Is Biden blackmailed to push direct clash between US-Russia troops?
According to a Eurasia Review report, the recent discovery of Biden's classified documents is no coincidence.
The Eurasia Review website considered it is not fully coincidental that the US President Joe Biden's "classified documents" scandal and the Russian takeover of Soledar in Ukraine occurred during the same period.
In a report published on Friday, the news site said that "no one should be surprised that Joe Biden’s ‘classified documents problem’ has emerged at the same time a key city in Ukraine (Soledar) has been" taken by Russia.
The classified documents, numbering around ten in total, were discovered at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, a downtown Washington institute founded by Biden after leaving the White House in 2017.

The documents were found at Penn’s Biden Center for Diplomacy in three or four boxes and were dated between 2013 and 2016, a time during which Biden served as Vice-President to former President Barack Obama, and reportedly included memos and briefing materials on Ukraine, Iran, and the UK, which could lead up to the opening of a criminal investigation.
According to the media outlet, Kiev forces are suffering severe defeats as Russian forces are continuously capturing more territory in eastern Ukraine.
"In short, the Ukrainian army is being beaten badly forcing US war planners to rethink their approach," the site added.

The report continued, "What the US needs to do to prevail in its proxy-war with Russia, is to enlist a coalition of nations (US, Poland, Romania, and UK) that are willing to commit combat troops to the conflict with the tacit understanding that NATO will not directly participate in any ground war with Russia."
Biden previously opposed sending US combat troops to Ukraine arguing that such a move might lead to a third World War.
However, the report pointed out that "as the ‘classified documents’ scandal gains momentum, the malleable president will likely fall-in-line and do whatever the hawkish foreign policy establishment demands of him."
The classified documents are being used by powerful entities "behind the scenes" to blackmail the US President in order to push their interests, the report said.
"Unfortunately, the elites who control the media, the politicians and most of the nation’s wealth—are determined to widen the conflict which is why the narrative in the media has dramatically changed in the last week," the media site added.

Western media, which had been previously promoting non-stop the narrative that Ukraine is winning the war, have gone silent for a while.
"No more stories about the ‘plucky’ Ukrainians beating back the ghoulish Russian Orcs. No. Instead, it’s the cold bitter truth: Ukraine is losing and losing hard," stated the report.
According to the media outlet, the sudden shift in narrative can be explained through the recent interview by The Washington Post with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.
It is a "last-ditch appeal for immediate assistance to prevent the collapse of the Ukrainian forces in the Donbas," the report said.
"Normally, elder members of the political establishment are more restrained in their pronouncements, but not here[in the interview]," said the media site, describing the interview as "a pure, unabashed desperation."
"Rice and Gates declare in no uncertain terms that Ukraine is in dire straits."
The site said it expected that Russian regional victories [in Ukraine] will "continue throughout the winter and into the spring."
"The only way Washington can prevent a humiliating defeat in Ukraine is by leading a coalition of countries that are willing to commit combat troops and air-power to fight the Russian army," it added.
The "moment of truth" is near, said the report.
"A direct clash between the United States and Russia."
It's noteworthy that Biden's personal lawyers discovered the records on November 2 and immediately turned them over to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
Despite the fact that the classified documents were discovered two months ago at Biden's centers, it wasn't until this Monday that the White House publicly admitted that lawyers had uncovered classified documents and turned them over to the Archives.
