- A US official has criticized Russia for setting up organizations to launch an all-out attack on Ukraine.
- A US official said Russia could begin work soon.
- This comes after the release of reports that Russia had recruited thousands of troops to the Ukrainian border.
Russia has hired trained bombers to carry out “false flags” to justify attacks on Ukraine, a U.S. official said on Friday.
The United States released the findings the following day, with National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan saying that Russia, which has mobilized thousands of troops on the Ukrainian border, “is laying the groundwork for a decision to make a revolt.”
A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Russia could begin work “several weeks” before the war, which could begin between January and mid-February.
“We have information that shows that Russia has already appointed a team of workers to perform a fake operation in eastern Ukraine,” the official said.
“The crew is trained to fight urban wars and to use explosives to destroy Russian weapons.”
The commissioner said Russia had immediately launched a media campaign, including articles denouncing Ukraine for violating human rights and for the West.
“Our data also shows that Russian protesters have already started producing Ukrainian demonstrations in government and on television to justify Russia’s intervention and sow discord in Ukraine,” the official said.
The United States has repeatedly criticized Russia for spreading propaganda and spreading false news on television.
The US official said the justification for the Russian language on Moscow-Ukrainian media outlets on TV increased by 200 percent in December to about 3,500 notes per day.
Sullivan, in a brief statement to reporters, said Russia had used the same tactics in 2014 when it invaded Crimea and supported the terrorist attacks taking place in eastern Ukraine.
“We saw this playbook in 2014. They are revising this book,” Sullivan said.
The United States released the findings on a false alarm after a week-long talks with Russia to resolve the dispute.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied wanting to invade Ukraine but has called on Western nations to ensure security, including promises not to expand NATO to the east.
Sullivan said Thursday that the United States favors negotiations but was prepared to “protect” its allies and invest more money in Russia in the event of an attack.
Russia escalated pressure on Ukraine in 2014 after riots toppled a government that refused to force the country to move closer to the West.
More than 13,000 people have been killed by Russian-linked terrorists in eastern Ukraine.
