New York Times: Americans saved the life of the head of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov


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.

    Believable.
    But the motive: “Hey, this is too much” is devoid of specifics.
    Therefore, one cannot rule out a provocative plan to lure V. Gerasimov into the "already safe" zone of the NWO.

    Lots of questions....
    Was it bad to get in touch with Gerasimov? And if they know everything about us, why did they save only Gerasimov?
    Whose side are they on?
    And how could the Armed Forces of Ukraine find out, except from the Americans?

    Or are they hinting that Gerasimov is convenient for them?
    Yes .. Now colleagues and subordinates will laugh .. That's for sure .. Framed cool, elegant!

    That's what it means, journalists and warriors in one harness!! A move in the spirit of the "hybrid war" theory that Gerasimov is developing.

      And underestimating the enemy is not even funny. Do you deny the existence of intelligence services in Ukraine?

        Heh.. Heh.. I don't even deny that you are from the SBU..... ..but that doesn't stop us from concluding that the Americans are skillfully working. And journalists and military .....

    Strelkov writes that the Americans, as a smart and prudent enemy, appreciate Gerasimov very much ... because if he is gone, the place of the chief of the General Staff may suddenly go to a professional who will create problems for the Ukrainians

      And then the fantasies "about saving the head of the General Staff of the Russian Federation" are understandable. How else can you explain to stupid Russians that he is so "dangerous" for Ukraine, that he is "assassined". For that absurdity of planning, you can reward "jam banks", and not encroach.

    Quite possible. In the end, there are no idiots in the US intelligence services and leadership (as well as in the relevant bodies of Russia). And it should be clear to everyone that the murder of an official of such a level as the NGSH is fraught with very serious consequences.

      Shall we express concern? Draw a red line in 3 layers? Shall we promise strikes against decision-making centers?

    But without Gerasimov, the army would have fought more successfully. As the time shows

      Well, still, judging by the facts, who else could ban attacks on "decision-making centers" that have become impudent before traveling to the front, or on the enemy's strategic communications, including bridges ...

    I remembered an old Soviet joke from the time of the Afghan war:

    senior warrant officer brake and thief of the Soviet army, shooting is strictly prohibited, a fine of 10000 dollars!

    I hesitate to ask, why such gratitude from the Americans to the Russian Chief of the General Staff?
