Intel: Russia Has Plans to Attack Itself to Blame Ukraine, Then Invade It

U.S. intelligence has indicated Russia is preparing an false-flag operation to justify an invasion of Ukraine.

Russia, frustrated with diplomacy in its demand for assurances Ukraine will not be admitted to NATO, is positioning operatives for an attack on itself it can point to as a reason for an invasion, an official told CNN on Friday.

The intelligence showed the Russian operatives are trained in urban warfare and the use of explosives, plotting an attack on Russia’s own proxy forces, according to the report.

Both Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense on Friday and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan at a White House press briefing Thursday referred to the intelligence.

Russian wants to be sure Ukraine does not join NATO and NATO does not build up troops or weapons in other former Soviet states aligned with the West. Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has suggested attempts at diplomacy are breaking down and forcing Russia to prepare for war, The New York Times reported.

“While our proposals are aimed at reducing the military confrontation, de-escalating the overall situation in Europe, exactly the opposite is happening in the West,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday, CNN reported. “NATO members are building up their strength and aviation. In the territories that are directly adjacent to Ukraine, on the Black Sea, the scale of exercises has increased many times recently.”

The U.S. has thus far rejected Russia’s pressure campaign on dictating the U.S. position on Ukraine joining NATO.

“The hard reality right now is that we were promised a written reaction,” Mr. Lavrov said in an Thursday interview, the Times reported. “We will wait for it. And then we will determine our next steps.”

    Go fuck yourself. There you are Lavrov, a written reply.

    • This same story appears in the DT, together with a truly horrific article by Roland Olephant about putler’s invasion options. I have refrained from posting it because it is so bleak.
      Even at this 1939-type stage, I still have hope that Biden will change course. But even Brian Whitmore is very pessimistic.
      God bless and protect Ukraine from putinazi savages.

      • Media in the West are predicting all sorts of doom and gloom, you would think Putler was planning to invade the EU. Ukrainians are just going about their business as usual, nobody is running around like headless chickens. If Putler thought he would cause Ukrainians to panic, he totally miscalculated. I still don’t think he’ll invade further into Ukraine either.

        • Good man F1. I hope and believe you are right.
          If there is no further incursion, sadly the threat will remain until the Budapest signatories honour their end of the deal.

          • The way I see it. If Putler invades, he will be gambling on the West not introducing crippling sanctions. We can only go off the hot air coming out of the US and EU that crippling sanctions will be applied. They would need a fucking good excuse not to introduce them after all the promises made.

  2. The mafiosi no doubt looked into the methodologies of their heroes – Nazi Germany – when they burned down the Reichstag to blame others.
