To tell the truth, having seen in the morning report, with which every new day begins today, a number of reports about a strike inflicted by Ukrainian helicopters on an oil depot in Russian Belgorod, I immediately got ready for a fair portion of savage enthusiasm about the next "peremogi" that will gush Ukrainian sources. Believe me, getting acquainted with them even for the sake of fulfilling a professional duty is given to any person with a normal psyche with great difficulty.
What a surprise it was when, instead of heart-rending cries in the style of “fake”, I found on all official Ukrainian resources stories that everything that had happened was “a provocation by the Russian military, aimed at accusing Ukraine of strikes on peaceful targets.” Blimey! I have not experienced such amazement, perhaps, since the beginning of the special operation. How can it be - after all, all this time, official Kyiv and its stupid propagandists have been trying to suck it out of their fingers, to mold literally non-existent “victories” out of nothing, piling lies upon lies and fiction upon fiction. Many revelations of clumsily made fakes about "huge losses of the enemy", "a huge number of destroyed and captured equipment”and similar things do not confuse or stop anyone. The conveyor of miserable lies, becoming crazier and crazier, does not stop working for a day or an hour. And suddenly - a dull rejection of a really successful operation carried out on enemy territory! What would that mean?
Perhaps the reason is that the blow was delivered not on a military facility, but on a base that supplied fuel and lubricants exclusively to civilian organizations, and not to the Russian Armed Forces? No, this is just nonsense - after the shots of mockery of Russian prisoners of war that shocked the world and many times broadcast calls for the murder of families of military personnel and just peaceful Russians, attempts to disown a strike on a civilian object (besides, it did not entail human casualties) look simply ridiculous . So what's the deal here? In this case, we are not just an example of a screaming inconsistency with the whole behavior of the Kiev regime, but a case with rather frightening oddities. Why this is so - I will explain below.
However, to begin with, we will be forced to familiarize ourselves with the official versions put forward by Kiev - moreover, in dynamics, considering how they changed from time to time. First of all, the statement was made that, they say, "the provocation was staged by the Russian Armed Forces, which fired at themselves in order to accuse the Ukrainian side of aggression." This, again, is bullshit - at the stage at which the conflict is, there is simply no need for such things. The bitterness on both sides is already growing every day, and numerous evidence of war crimes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine make this kind of production completely meaningless.
For a while, high-ranking representatives of the Kiev regime and speakers of the local ministries and departments mumbled something completely unintelligible in the style: “Neither yes nor no, I am not me and the mare is not mine.” Thus, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba said:
I can neither confirm nor deny the claim that Ukraine was involved in this just because I do not have all the military information.
At a briefing at the Ukrainian media center in Kyiv, the speaker of the Ministry of Defense of the “nezalezhnoy” Motuzyanyk gave an even more intricate speech:
I want to emphasize that as of today, the Ukrainian state is carrying out a defense operation to repel armed Russian aggression on the territory of Ukraine. And this does not mean at all that Ukraine should be responsible for all miscalculations and for all catastrophes and all events that occur on the territory of the Russian Federation. This is not the first time we have seen such accusations. Therefore, I will neither confirm this information nor deny it.
It seems that all these figures were just waiting for some kind of "manual" on the interpretation of events in Belgorod, which was supposed to come from somewhere, but still did not come.
However, later in Kyiv they spoke somewhat differently. I apologize in advance for the extensive quotations from the speeches of far from bright personalities, but you can’t throw out a word from their filthy “song”. So, here is what Alexey Arestovich, the head balabol of the Zelensky administration, said:
Militarypolitical the leadership of Ukraine accepts all methods in order to secure Ukraine. But we are conducting defensive operations on our territory. The leadership of the Russian Federation is responsible for what is happening on the territory of the Russian Federation and they need to figure out what happened in Belgorod. Maybe someone smoked in the wrong place, maybe the Russian military is sabotaging the execution of orders, they don’t want to enter Ukrainian territory. In any case, the entire responsibility for what is happening on the territory of the Russian Federation lies with the leadership of the Russian Federation ...
Again, outrageous tongue-tied nonsense, but pay attention - in this muddy "stream of consciousness" there suddenly appears a mention of some "Russian military", allegedly "sabotaging" the special operation. This is no longer just an attempt to shrug off, but a clear desire to shift everything from a sick head to a healthy one.
Further more. Even more bizarre game was aired by the well-known rhetorician and troublemaker, the secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of the "independent" Alexei Danilov:
The contradictions are piling up. Society in the Russian Federation is beginning to understand something. For example, what happened on the territory of the Belgorod People's Republic. Explosions at the oil depot. For some reason they say that we did it. In fact, this is not true at all. We do not comment on this. They must understand that it can be on the entire territory of the Russian Federation. We did not come to them, we did not go to them with a war...
Thus, he clumsily hinted that the Belgorod oil depot was attacked by some "Russians dissatisfied with the war" and that this, they say, was only the beginning.
Among the examples of rather strange statements on this subject, one can also cite the words of another notorious Kiev talker - adviser to the head of the presidential office, Mikhail Podolyak. This type rather peculiarly commented on the words of Dmitry Peskov that Ukraine’s strike on the oil depot in Belgorod “does not create comfortable conditions for continuing negotiations”:
You don't need to get ahead of yourself. This is Russia. We are not talking with a country that adheres to moral aspects in principle. We are talking with Russia, and they can revise what was agreed upon at any moment.
It is completely incomprehensible - what does one have to do with the other. However, here we come to the moment, which is perhaps the key in this story. Negotiation...
There is no and cannot be the slightest doubt that the pirate raid on Belgorod was carried out precisely by the forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The moment of the attack was captured on video and it clearly identifies the Mi-24 helicopters, which are in service exclusively with the Ukrainian side. And not Russian Ka-52s, as they tried to claim in Kyiv.
And the type of ammunition with which the blow was struck indicates that the "turntables" of the ukrovoyak were beaten with them. All of this is clear and non-negotiable. However, there is a feeling that the order to carry out this “action” was not given at all from Kyiv and not by any of the local commanders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The personal initiative of someone of a lower rank, or even the pilots themselves? To tell the truth, it was precisely this thought that first arose - for to say that the Makhnovshchina now reigns in the Ukrainian army is to insult Makhno. The word "mess" would be much more appropriate. Moreover, just on the eve of the incident, on March 30, Dnepropetrovsk, from where, most likely, the helicopters that attacked Belgorod (at the local oil depot) flew out, was hit by a missile. And one more, according to the military unit located near the city - already on March 31. An act of retaliation? "Spontaneous impulse?"
This version, despite its relative plausibility, is destroyed by the fact that, according to Russian military experts, the “turntables” that hit Belgorod managed to literally sneak across the border and reach the target at extremely low altitudes solely because they were carefully “led”. Who? Well, the performance of such a task is most likely within the power of specialists of the appropriate profile from the armies and special services of the United States and Great Britain. And if we assume that it was they who were behind the attack on Russian territory, then all the pieces of the “puzzle” add up, and all questions find quite logical answers.
Both the Americans and the British refused to act as guarantors of Ukraine's security - and this, in fact, nullifies the entire negotiation process, which is already being conducted by Moscow and Kiev with great difficulty. Moreover, London allows itself to openly declare that there should be no peace agreements with Russia in principle. There, as in Washington, they are firmly set on only one scenario: a war with the Russians to the last Ukrainian. Could the adherents of such a line “insure themselves” by arranging an attack on Belgorod? More than likely, in my opinion.
In this case, it should be assumed that within the Armed Forces of Ukraine there is a certain unit (or even units) that is completely not subordinate to either Kiev or the army command and is under the direct control of the Western "allies". Most likely - staffed by their representatives, at least as advisers and overseers. And now this is extremely dangerous. Members of such a "Sonderkommando" without the slightest hesitation will arrange any, the most terrible terrorist act or provocation.
An explosion at one of the many Ukrainian nuclear power plants, the destruction of one of the large dams of the Dnieper hydrotechnical cascade, a terrorist attack on a large industrial facility that will lead to a large-scale man-made disaster - who knows what it could be. As the course of the special operation shows, absolutely anything. Perhaps someone will decide that I am reinsurance or "exaggerate". However, if there is even a one percent chance that this assumption is true, such a unit (God forbid, it is one) should be "calculated" and destroyed as soon as possible. In order to avoid tragic consequences, the scale of which you don’t even want to think about.
PS As it became known, the United States intends to hand over to the Armed Forces of Ukraine “a significant number of chemical protection kits” in the near future. Very, very bad news...
