US Could Be Planning False Flag Operation In Ukraine To Blame Russia

Washington’s threats to sanction Putin is not a demonstration of power but one of desperation.

Written by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analyst

Threats that Washington could impose sanctions directly on Russian President Vladimir Putin is not a demonstration of American strength and capability, but rather a demonstration of desperation. If such sanctions were passed and implemented, it will lead to a serious deterioration of relations between the US and Russia and, possibly, even a severing of ties.

Senior Democratic senators, led by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, unveiled a fresh package of sanctions last week to target Putin and other high-ranking Russian officials – if Washington determines that Russia started a war with Ukraine. It could be speculated that this is really about trying to stop the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline project that will deliver Russian gas to Germany and other parts of Europe.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov warned that sanctions on Putin are “an unprecedented measure tantamount to severing ties.” Although such an action by the US would be drastic, news of possible sanctions, especially at a time when security negotiations were underway last week between Russia and the US/OSCE, should be seen as a desperate attempt to pressure Moscow into submission.

Perhaps the threats were made to strengthen the American negotiating position during last week’s discussions. There is nothing particularly new about sanction threats against Russia, except now the emphasis has been placed on personal sanctions on Putin. This is being spearheaded by the anti-Russian lobby linked to the part of the Democratic Party that is unhappy with what they perceive to be President Joe Biden’s soft policy towards Russia.

Another problematic aspect is what kind of sanctions the Americans might be able to impose on the Russian president given that he has no assets or bank accounts in the West. Since no one publicly knows what sanctions US senators have devised, it is likely the sanction threats against Putin were empty given in the hope of strengthening US negotiating power with Moscow. This does not negate though that the US could sanction other individuals or perhaps even the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

In addition, new sanctions are being prepared in case the situation escalates in Ukraine. This is despite the fact that Moscow insists it has no intention of invading Ukraine. This has not stopped the US from disseminating disinformation, with the latest being that Russia has been “laying the groundwork to have the option of fabricating a pretext for invasion” by blaming Ukraine.

“We have information that indicates Russia has already prepositioned a group of operatives to conduct a false-flag operation in eastern Ukraine,” said Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary on Friday.

Despite Russia desperately trying to avoid war, the US is painting a picture that the country is nefariously seeking ways to justify an invasion of Ukraine. Given the US’ long history of false flag operations, perhaps Ukrainian provocations are being prepared to be presented as a Russian false flag operation to justify sanctions and perhaps coerce Russia into a destructive and costly war.

The sanctions proposed by the Democrats could also include the prime minister, the foreign minister, the defence minister, the chief of staff of the Armed Forces and other military figures. Sanctions could also target key banks and the SWIFT system. Washington believes that such threats send a clear signal about its readiness to devastate the Russian economy.

None-the-less, if there really is a desire to reduce tensions, then Washington should speak the language of diplomacy and not of threats that can be considered a brazen and cynical method to trade on what is needed and important to the US side in the negotiations. However, it was for this very reason that controlled leaks during last week’s negotiations sent the message that sanctions have been prepared if Russia does not capitulate to American demands.

Sanctions undoubtedly affect the Russian economy, but it certainly has not destroyed it. Take for example the fact that Russia used to be an importer of agricultural products, but today it is a major exporter despite sanctions. The same could happen in other sectors of the economy where sanctions could be imposed.

In this way, threats of strengthened sanctions, especially against Putin, is nothing more than a desperate attempt to force Russia into capitulation and abandon the humanitarian situation in Ukraine and the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. As Moscow will not capitulate or be dragged into war with Ukraine, the biggest threat is not whether Washington will impose strengthened sanctions against Russia, but if it is preparing a false flag operation in Ukraine to blame the Kremlin.

The NWO Zio terrorist USA is DESPERATE!!! They know that Russia cannot be tumbled and they are supported by China and the other associated countries. Russia, if blackmailed should simply cut all wheat export, fuel, gas, oil, NASA cooperation with the Evil Empire


While I wouldn’t consider Russia innocent of any false flag ops, I wouldn’t see any strategic relevance that Russia would attack their friendly forces in the Novorossiya. The west by supplying weapons, funds and training a government hostile to Russia has already given legitimate reason to invade Ukraine.


Devastate the economy, rotffl

What a bunch of woosies, lol.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Russia is too soft on CIAisis. Here are a few ideas. If the U.S. puts sanctions on Russia or Putin. Stop exporting oil and gas to the EU and the USA. Stop exporting ammo. Stop exporting titanium. Stop exporting rocket engines. Close the airspace for all U.S. and EU jets. For the start…

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Start arming all enemies of the U.S. With advanced weapons.

The million dollar question. Is this just a fear tactic, a bluff, for the Russian delegation?

[Excerpts]- “Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported on reported on December 21st that 120 U.S. mercenaries received deliveries of chemical weapons in the Ukrainian occupied frontline cities of Avdeevka and Krasny Liman for use in a possible false-flag attack that could be blamed on Russia…..

……Press Secretary of the DPR Defense Ministry Eduard Basurin confirmed that Ukraine had received several batches of toxic substances, botulinum toxin and an antidote to it from the U.S. He stated: Various types of chemical weapons were brought to Ukraine. In October, one of the shipments contained an antidote against botulinum toxin. In November, the chemical itself was delivered. It can be used with grenade launchers. The weight is small. It can be dropped from drones, and Ukraine has been using shock drones all the time lately.

In addition, “Another container weighing 300 kilograms was delivered to Mariupol by sea, where there was a chemical warfare agent—dibenzoxazepine, which is used in the form of an aerosol.” In the southern sector of the Front, near Mariupol, citizens of the frontline village Granitnoye have reported Ukrainian soldiers in full chemical/biological protective suits unloading containers. These reports do not bode well for a peaceful settlement of the conflict in Ukraine which threatens to expand into a full-fledged war involving the U.S. and Russia.” [end] (“Expect Escalation of Conflict in Donbass and Ukraine Soon,” Says Foreign Correspondent, By Russell Bentley, January 11, 2022)

Currently various Western bloc officials and MSM continue to present a false narrative (propaganda) of a potential ‘Russian invasion of Ukraine’. In reality it is the US-NATO supported (regime changed) Ukraine that is currently intensifying offensive military operations against Russian speaking regions of the LDNR (with various Western bloc nations supplying weapons, advisors/trainers, PMCs, special forces, surveillance data/targeting coordinates, etc.).

Statements by Vladimir Putin regarding the situation in the LDNR indicate Russia is preparing a potential humanitarian military intervention to protect the defence formations and populations of the LDNR. The US-NATO bloc seek to prevent this response to its intensifying military operations against the Russian speaking LDNR (or its potential response to Ukrainian provocations) by falsely accusing Russia of preparations for an ‘invasion’.

Western bloc narratives (propaganda) seeks to manipulate public perceptions as to which party is the aggressor and which the defender. The globally expanding wars of the US-NATO-allied bloc applied in a sequential format (associated with successive anti-democratic ‘regime change’ operations to facilitate control of foreign economic assets and military bloc integration/the expansion of permanent military bases) however clarify the reality of which is the actual aggressor (the wars of this bloc having progressed to preparations for war scenarios against Russia, China, the DPRK, Iran, etc…). Western bloc MSM may be effective in manipulating public perceptions (through false narratives) but it will be ineffective in preventing the consequences of these latest approaching wars.

Russia, China, North Korea and Iran have different interests though.

God has got a False flag color revolution coming for the US!! what your sow you reap no??? 😂


Sow the wind reap the whirlwind.


The preference for sanctions shows a distinct aversion to being blown up, which is a very good cue as to what Russia should do to show what it thinks about these pencilnecks and their desire for security.


CIA and MI6 dogs were on Ukr for a long time, it is about time…
