Putin’s ‘staged atrocity’ plan to justify Russian invasion of Ukraine

The US has accused Russia of planning to stage an atrocity that it can blame on Ukrainian forces as the pretext for an invasion. The “false flag” event could include the use of corpses, supposedly of Russians or Russian-speaking victims in Ukraine, as well as actors posing as mourners, the Pentagon said yesterday, with the incident then used as propaganda to justify sending the 100,000 Russian troops massed at the border over into Ukraine. John Kirby, the Pentagon spokesman, said yesterday:

“We do have information that the Russians are likely to want to fabricate a pretext for an invasion, which is right out of their playbook. One option is a fake attack by Ukrainian military or intelligence forces against Russian sovereign territory or against Russian-speaking people. As part of this fake attack, we believe that Russia would produce a very graphic propaganda video which would include corpses and actors that would be depicting mourners and images of destroyed locations as well as military equipment.

The world is quickly polarizing as we stand on the brink of conflict in eastern Europe. America has started to release classified information about Putin’s plans to create a pretext to invade Ukraine. Last week the UK published similar claims that Putin will stage atrocities in Ukraine as an excuse for war. This week the US has said the same.

The Bible says that Gog (Russian ruler / Putin) is a man of deception. He has used this kind of tactic before and so it is likely he will do so again. Think of the deception of sending his troops “in disguise” when he annexed Crimea. On the other hand Russia is forging an ever closer alliance with China. They have both agreed to stand against NATO’s expansion and do whatever they can to bypass any sanctions…

He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy those who are mighty, the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power. (Daniel 8:24-25 NIV)
