Today’s topic is a scary one: Possible provocations and false flags from the Ukrainian side. I’ll start with this piece, in which Maria Zakharova warns: Ukraine might try something really dirty (like using weapons of mass destruction) and then try to blame it on Russia. The reporter is Liudmila Plotnikova.
Zakharova, who is the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Office, Tweeted that the U.S., along with its Western allies and the Zelensky regime, are preparing some kind of monstrous provocation. They would (this is the theory) employ biological or chemical weapons in some part of the Ukraine; then they would blame Russia; and whip up Western public opinion (even more than currently whipped up) to support full-on NATO intervention in this war: Obviously Zakharova’s game move is: If Russia lets on that they already got wind of this, and warn in advance, maybe the bad guys will step down and not do it after all.
“Washington already started to prepare,” Zakharova tweeted. “They have already placed so-called investigators and observers into position (controlled by the West, of course), and these organizations will be designated to investigate [the incidents and cough up the needed conclusions].”
Zakharova only hinted and didn’t come out and name the “organizations” she is alluding to, but she notes that, in the past, “they have proved their reliability in carrying out the instructions of their American masters.”
Zakharova also pointed out how the White House already started to cultivate public opinion, days and even weeks ago, when they used Court Reporters to plant questions to President Biden, on the order of, “What is America prepared to do, should the Russians use bioweapons?”
Which, to me, is like asking Biden, “What is America provided to do if a giant Easter Bunny kidnapped the President just as he was about to answer a reporter’s question?” Oh wait! that actually happened, so it’s not a good example of a crazy question. But nonetheless, the Court Media want to put it out there, so that low-IQ American people will start thinking, “Hm… what if Russia was to use a bioweapon in the Ukraine?” The correct answer is, of course, They wouldn’t. It might not seem like it at times, but believe it or not, Russia is winning this war and is destined to win. As Gonzalo Lira pointed out in one of his podcasts: If he, Gonzo, were to step into the ring for a Cage Match with Conor McGregor, the outcome is not actually in any doubt. Unless Conor were to throw the fight. In other words, only the side that is badly losing, would have a motive to resort to some desperado trick like using bio-weapons to kill their own people.
They Saved Hitler’s Plan!
Speaking of which, Zakharova also revealed, in this other piece from a week ago, how the German government has been working merrily, alongside the U.S. in developing bioweapons in the Ukraine. Zakharova: “According to confirmed information, the German side very closely coordinated its work in bioweapons security, with their American allies. Together they created in the Ukraine a network of at least 30 biological laboratories which were involved in very dangerous research.”
Invoking Godwin’s Law: Hitler would be proud of his descendants! From his brain jar he mentally claps his hands and intones, “Kill ’em all!”
Bio Or Chemical, Which is Nastier?
Which is the better way to kill a lot of people in a horrible way? Biological or chemical? Personally, if I had to pick my own death, I’d choose the former over the latter. Chemicals are just nasty. From yesterday I have this piece by reporter Alexander Boiko. He quotes Russian Lieutenant-General Mikhail Mizintsev, who worries that the Zelensky regime will use ammonia to try to poison the citizens of Odessa, and then blame it on Russia. Like Zakharova’s warning, this can probably be filed in the genre of “Our spies heard about this crazy plan, so we’re letting you know that we know. So, don’t do it.” According to Mizintsev, the Russian Security forces picked up Intel about a possible terrorist attack in Odessa, which would be organized by the Ukrainian SBU:
In the region of the Odessa Port called Yuzhny (“Southern”), the special services of the Ukraine are planning a provocation employing poisonous chemical substances against some civilian infrastructure, and then would place the blame on Russian troops. The most likely scenario for the staging of this event would be an imitation of a Russian rocket attack against the Ukrainian naval base, as a result of which the freezing plant, located 500 meters from the military object, would be blown up. [Russian Intel noticed] on April 18 a cistern filled with 10 tons of ammonia was moved here from Odessa. [Intel also noted that] police and security forces in the Odessa Oblast were issued with Personal Protective devices and gear.
Mizintsev is also worried about a possible provocation planned in the Luhansk city of Lisichansk. Russian Intel noted some British operatives there, along with some of the same media actors who prepared the Bucha Atrocity fake. He believes they are going to stage something nasty, and then do a photo shoot. Minzintsev concluded his interview by reiterating that “Russian soldiers do not war against the peaceful civilian population, nor do we attack objects of civilian infrastructure.”
Well, except maybe for railroads (dual use, as the Americans say?). I’ll have a post maybe later this week, how Ukrainians are thinking about using passenger trains to move those big howitzers from Lvov to the Donbass front. It sounds like a crazy idea, but it might just work! Stay tuned…
The Ultimate Provocation?
And then moving on to what would be the Ultimate Provocation of the Zelensky regime. Anybody who is a believing Christian on this day, Orthodox Easter, please pray for the safety of American Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken who are slated to fly [presumably] into Kiev today. As Tony Soprano might say, “Would be a shame if somethin’ was to happen to dem…”
Please allow me to explain: Yesterday (Saturday) Zelensky held a press conference inside the Kiev subway station. During his standup comedy routine, Zelensky let his mouth get ahead of his brain and let slip a rather important state secret: Namely, that America’s beloved comedy duo of Austin & Blinken are coming to town! On Orthodox Easter Sunday!
Austin, who seamlessly transitioned from the Military Industrial Complex (=Raytheon) to the Pentagon, is known as the straight man in this duo; whereas Blinken, who also has the funnier name, is the funny one who gets to deliver the punchlines.
Both men were probably flummoxed beyond belief, to hear their names bandied about in Zel’s press conference. I mean, they have to fly into the Ukraine, where planes are being shot down on a daily basis. Are they not afraid something might happen to them, now that the whole world knows their schedule? Or, even scarier: Might they not worry that Zelensky and his inner circle might be preparing a false flag against their plane, along the same genre as MH-17? Their violent deaths at the hands of Russian anti-air would surely trigger World War III. That horrible thought suddenly occurred to me last night, just as I was getting ready to go to bed. Being sleepy, I was too lazy to run to the phone and call Putin to warn him, even though I have Putin on speed-dial, it goes without saying.
Zelensky: [answering a question from a loyal Ukrainian citizen]: I cannot imagine any variant, under which our partners will not hand over to us the weapons that they have promised. We won’t even consider that possibility. There is no alternative. [Without those weapons] we will not have a country left. But don’t worry: After we win this war, we will have the strongest and most experienced army [in the world]. And we will become one of the most powerful states in Europe. Besides, we are expecting [important] visitors: Secretary of State Blinken and Defense Secretary Austin are arriving in Kiev tomorrow!”
