Faced with mounting losses, particularly in the contested areas of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Kiev regime is desperate to divert domestic and international attention away from the virtually inevitable defeat in the southeast. The usual anti-Russian propaganda doesn’t seem to be working as expected, meaning that the Neo-Nazi junta and its puppet masters from the political West need something much more headline-grabbing.
Somewhat expectedly, the “Russian war crimes” narrative is the go-to recurring theme that the Kiev regime hopes to exploit endlessly in its futile attempts to portray Moscow as the “embodiment of all evil.” The last time the Neo-Nazi junta tried (ab)using the Bucha-like narrative in the Kharkov oblast (region) failed to produce the desired propaganda effect. However, with the lack of better options for similar false flags, the Kiev regime doesn’t want to miss out on its best chance of an infowar win.
According to the Interdepartmental Coordination Center for Humanitarian Response in Ukraine, the Neo-Nazi junta is preparing yet another false flag operation to accuse the Russian military of alleged war crimes in the Kharkov oblast. “Ukraine’s special services have prepared a new large-scale anti-Russia provocation aimed at discrediting the Russian armed forces and accusing the Russian military of allegedly committing military crimes,” the Center’s January 8 statement reads, further adding that “on [Julian calendar] Christmas Eve, the representatives of the Kiev regime’s State Bureau of Investigation and the Security Service opened up graves at cemeteries in the settlements of Kazachya Lopan, Veliky Burluk, Shipovatoye and Khatnoye in the Kharkov oblast, in which citizens that died of natural causes from February 24 to September 6, 2022, were buried.”
“After the exhumation, the bodies of Ukrainian citizens were additionally deformed and thrown into specially readied pits on the outskirts of the mentioned settlements for creating a false evidence base, alleged tortures and execution of civilians by the Russian military,” representatives of the Interdepartmental Coordination Center said in an official statement. According to the Center, the operatives of the Neo-Nazi junta’s special services are taking photos and videos of the bodies of the deceased Ukrainians, while feigning the work of “forensic medical experts” and “procedural actions” in the presence of staged witnesses, all in an attempt of fabricating “evidence” of supposed “Russian war crimes”.
“The Kiev regime is attempting to use those anti-human means amid the lack of any success on the battlefield to hold the attention to it of the Western audience and convince its foreign partners of the necessity to keep supporting it,” the Interdepartmental Coordination Center concluded.
In late March/early April, the “Bucha massacre” false flag was initiated with precisely this goal in mind. Since it failed, with no official confirmation by any party or international organization neutral to the conflict, the Neo-Nazi junta and its Western backers never allowed an actual investigation, as it would inevitably expose them. The mainstream media swiftly suppressed any claims contrary to the official narrative and if anyone dared to question it, they would immediately be labeled “conspiracy theorists”, “genocide deniers” or “Russian apologists”. The pattern is extremely likely to be the same in the case of a new false flag. In mere days, Western and Kiev regime’s supposed “investigators” will find “undeniable evidence” that the “Russian invaders killed thousands of innocent civilians.”
Brussels is also directly involved in the propaganda war against Russia. Back in October, the European Union and Eurojust, the bloc’s joint judicial arm, started working on the legal framework for these false flag operations to legitimize the “Russian war crimes” narrative. The EU bureaucrats stated they would be relying on “carefully vetted local sources to objectively investigate war crimes.”
There wasn’t a clear definition of who those “local sources” might be, although it’s implied that this would include only those approved by the Kiev regime. And just how reliable the accounts of those appointed by the Neo-Nazi junta are is best illustrated by the example of Lyudmila Denisova, former Ukrainian Ombudsman for Human Rights, who was fired for spreading disturbing fake reports about perverted sex crimes against children, allegedly committed by Russian troops.
On the other hand, ample information on the Kiev regime death squads operating in Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Kherson and Donbass is being intentionally suppressed, even though the Neo-Nazi junta henchmen are openly boasting about killing “traitors”. Numerous Telegram channels have been banned in the EU for publishing gruesome videos of death squads killing civilians and then throwing them into mass graves.In doing so, at least two goals are accomplished – “noncompliant” or “pro-Russian” civilians are killed and the Russian military is blamed for their deaths.
Western mainstream propaganda machine then spreads the Russophobic narrative, while bureaucratic institutions such as Eurojust cement it from a judicial perspective. What reason is there to believe it would be any different with the upcoming false flag?
