The American edition of the New York Times published a fantastic story about the operation to save the life of the head of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov. It was allegedly carried out by the United States.
According to American journalists, some time ago the United States received information about Valery Gerasimov's trip to the NVO zone. The United States decided to hide this information from the Ukrainian military, fearing a strike from their side on the area where Valery Gerasimov was supposed to be.
According to the United States, such a strike could seriously aggravate the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. But the Ukrainian military still learned about the whereabouts of the Russian general. And then, according to the New York Times, American negotiators stepped in and began to convince the Ukrainians not to shoot the head of the Russian General Staff.
We told them not to. We thought: Hey, this is too much.
– quotes the publication of a high-ranking source who wished to remain anonymous.
True, this request was received by the Armed Forces of Ukraine too late. The New York Times claims that the Ukrainians had already managed to shell the area in which Gerasimov was located. But since the Russian general survived, it means that the merit of the United States is obvious.
Note that neither the date of the incident, nor the exact location in which the described events allegedly took place, the publication does not provide. But the main thing is not this. The main thing is that the good Americans selflessly fought for the life of the Russian general.
