Voice of Russia: US Behind Attacks on Ethnic Russians in Ukraine


This is becoming such a classic case study of information war.  Here is a Voice of Russia report that needs to be read to be believed. Read the evidence at the bottom, real (yeah, right) emails.

Now many, if not most or even all, “incidents” in Ukraine, probably against ethnic Russians, will be blamed on US “false flag” operations.  One already occurred last night in Kharkiv, Ukraine.  This is the ‘proof’ or evidence that Russia will need to invade Ukraine.  

Funny how “Anonymous” has “uncovered” this evidence because they “hacked” in and got these emails.  I say this is manufactured, made up, fabricated, churned out…  in other words fake.  This is classic Soviet, now Russian, lies.  

Notice I don’t use the word propaganda to describe it, it does nothing to promote the Russians.   It does provide false evidence and supports a Russian invasion.

Operation Independence Continues – Anonymous exposes US invasion plans in Ukraine

By tomorrow, the 15th of March 2014, the United States, through its agents in Ukraine, will begin a series of false flag attacks on targets in Ukraine which have been designed to make it look as if they were carried out by the Special Forces of the Russian Federation.

This information has been made available and was released through several forums used by Anonymous Ukraine. Members of Anonymous Ukraine, who are involved in what Anonymous has called Operation Independence, have independently verified that Anonymous is the source for the e-mails. Among the three key e-mail is one containing the initial instructions from the US Army Assistant Army Attaché Jason P. Gresh to a senior official of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Army named Igor Protsuyuk. Again Anonymous has exposed treason by Ukrainian officials and the egregious illegal meddling of the United Sates into the affairs of a sovereign nation.

Anonymous Ukraine is operating in what can only be described as a hot war zone where almost all communications and internet access are either completely controlled and intercepted or have been shut down. Contacts in Anonymous Ukraine have also stated that there is a campaign by the US Government and the current illegitimate regime which illegally seized power to demonize and discredit Anonymous.

Anonymous Ukraine does not support what they call “the Bandera Nazis” because: they do not represent the Ukrainian people, they have deposed the democratically elected president, they have destabilized the country, they have killed hundreds of peaceful Ukrainian and they have completely taken over the media and the internet.

Anonymous Ukraine has therefore stated that those running the Facebook page under “Anonymous Ukraine” are CIA and US Government lackeys who are promoting nazis and destroying their country before selling it to NATO, the US and the EU.

Members of Anonymous Ukraine are in fear for their safety and have stated that the Bandera nazis have issued orders to execute those responsible for previous releases of their hacked e-mails and the recording of telephone conversations that have been made available on-line. They have also noticed heightened activity by the NSA and CIA against all of their web resources.

  1. Ironic that this comes on the heels of our self-inflicted gutting of Info Ops. Our insistence over the years that this is too important for turf wars and bureaucratic politics, along with abysmal understanding of the power of information, are really hurting us. Dan

  2. It would be hysterical if there weren’t so many gullible fools swallowing this propaganda garbage up like candy. the so-called, self-appointed “alternative media” that I have frequented over the years seems to be so rabidly anti-American government that they will jump and shouting pointing “see I told you I told you!” whenever a Putin cyber missile is launched without the slightest shred of legitimacy to back it. it i ironic that these same ditto-heads that purport to be so incredibly patriotic and revolutionary in attitude cannot recognize and support a true revolution when they see one. No one in their right mind doubts U.S. intelligence meddling, especially when it comes to Russian spheres of influence. but to seriously suggest that George Soros and the NED and OSF and CIA and State Dept managed to dupe millions of Ukrainians into throwing off their Russian shackles is absurd beyond any comprehension, especially without a shred of evidence. Nuland’s “F— the EU” call, as ridiculous and careless as that was, can easily be interpreted as what it was, post-uprising diplomatic maneuvering. The fantasy that Russia has not done so, and yet a legitimate right to send provocateurs and military forces into Ukraine is what leaves me dumbfounded. “Putin Tourists” have for months been bused into Ukraine to pretend they are separatists ethnic Russians. Russian thugs (titushky) were at Maidan and Crimea, and now Kharkiv, Donetsk, Lugansk etc. Russia is making incursions into southern Ukraine to take natural gas depots. The Ukrainian military is weak and slow to respond and only now are we seeing some action. The front will be fought mostly on the intelligence side as Russia is planning to insitigate more Crimea style “referenda” to stir the pot and start a civil war in Ukraine. So says the Russia-installed deputy PM in Crimea yesterday. This first one which was a total farce, with dead voters on the rolls and foreigners allowed to vote. I am shocked that only 97% “decided” to go with Russia. I guess that last 3% was to make it look legitimate. The first action Monday has been to “nationalize” the gas company in Crimea with the intent to sell it to Gazprom. So they are already splitting up the spoils. Next stop, Kherson, Nikolaev, Odessa, on onward. Nice, first get the Ukrainians to develop the area and then take it over, as Russia did throughout the 20th C, in Siberia. To paraphrase Nuland: “F— the RF.”

    1. Good comment, Keith!

      There seem to be three different problems or three different audiences.

      One, the people of Ukraine. What do they listen to? Who do they believe? How do we encourage them to read multiple sources, not to just blindly listen to and believe any one perspective?

      Two, the people of Russia and hopefully the leaders. How do we counter the propaganda being churned out like machine gun fire? How do we get some of them to check multiple sources of information and, hopefully, doubt everything the Russian government is spewing? Recent marches in Moscow give me heart. 50,000 attended a protest against the Russian government’s actions. 15,000 attended a pro-Russian march.

      Three, the West, how do we spread the word that there are alternative sources for information – that ALL news and information should be considered suspect and to have a wide variety of sources for information – make up their own mind.

      Greater minds than ours, combined, are discussing this very issue…

      1. My understanding is Ukraine recently shut down all the Russian channels on TV because they were spewing propaganda 24/7. I hate to see it but on the other hand if someone is yelling lies in your friend’s ear all day don’t you have some right or the least an obligation to call them on it and shut them up. If they want to get Russian garbage it’s easy enough to find. Average folks in Ukraine (and everywhere) watch TV news and listen to radio. But keep in mind, Ukraine’s response was in response to the RF shutting down all dissent in Crimea. The Russian “government” is a mafia run amok I hate to say. They have virtually zero indpendent media in the RF. Ukraine’s govt was also a mafia but they finally got the cajones to do the right thing, and Putin is terrified that will happen at home, hence his propensity to torture and kill journalists. All autocrats should be scared. The tide is turning across the globe. Our own corporate lackeys in Congress better be on the lookout. People are slowly waking up and losing patience.

    1. Good call. I was predicting that a few weeks ago, I believe, it only makes sense. Seeing the pro-Russian sentiment in Eastern Ukrain, I actually believe they can do that bloodlessly.

      The issue is whether the West finally steps up, puts their power where their mouth is, and tells Russia to stop. Putin is betting they don’t. The obstacle is time. The West should see that Russia is not going to stop and put a token force in place. They won’t change the outcome, if a conventional war happens, but symbolically Russia would be attacking every nation that contributes forces. One battalion from every country in NATO would work for starters. The symbolic cost to Russia would be too great for them to even attempt a soft takeover.

      Again, this is conventional military as part of a greater information strategy. It doesn’t get any simpler than this but it takes a set of cajones to make this happen.

  3. Maybe we need to think a bit broader here. That garbage is believable because we have been involved in offensive IO elsewhere and because we are more willing to say so than say, the Russians. So there is a latent propensity among different target audiences to say: ‘on the face of it, that’s possible’ irrespective of whether that’s true or not.

    Of course, we should deny for the record, but denials are only going to carry us so far. An offensive IO campaign should push Putin into his own contradictions, not play tit-for-tat.

    The second larger issue is why is Putin suddenly embracing the nationalist song. That I think is much more worrisome. Yes, he regrets the break-up of the Soviet Union. Yes, he wants a larger role for Russia on the world scene. Yes, he resents the US and the West for their versions of unilateralism. But in years past, he had found other venues to express his ideas of grandeur: getting to the G8, the contact group on Iran, the WTO… So why the shift? If it’s because his economic miracle is slowing and he is looking for another motivator to stay in power, then we have to seriously worry. Particularly as the sanctions we are angling for will only make the economic situation worse.
