Someone Is Lying: Russia Defense Ministry Says There Was No Military Column In East Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture

And just like that the disinformation war goes full retard:


And the full google-translated RIA article:

No Russian military convoy that allegedly crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border, does not exist, said Friday the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov.


"In the Russian Defense Ministry denied reports of alleged" extermination "Ukrainian military" Russian military convoy, "which allegedly crossed the eve of the Russian-Ukrainian border," - said the Russian defense ministry.


"No Russian military convoy, which allegedly crossed the Russian-Ukrainian border by night or by day - exists. And it would be best if the Ukrainian artillery destroyed some phantom, instead of refugees or their own troops," - said the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, General -Major Igor Konashenkov.


"Such statements are based on some kind of fantasy, or rather assumptions journalists should not be the subject of serious discussion by senior officials of any country", - the report says. 


What is happening in Ukraine and New Russia


Mass anti-government protests began in the south-eastern regions of Ukraine in late February 2014. They were a response to local residents on the violent change of power in the country and the subsequent attempt to cancel the Verkhovna Rada of the law granting the Russian language the status of regional. Center of opposition pro-Russian citizens with the authorities in Kiev became the Donbass. About how the conflict evolved in the south-east of Ukraine, read in the chronicleof RIA Novosti.

Surely the Ukraine president, who already confirmed to David Cameron that the Russian column was mostly "eliminated" will be releasing a YouTube clip with the proof momentarily.

Wait a minute here

Are you suggesting that a politician is not telling us the truth?

I can't get my mind around that concept.

The Ukraine leadership is in a bind. Things are not going their way. They are now cooking up stories to make themselves appear relevant.

Ukraine will fall apart now. Putin has already won.

I wonder how the Ferguson "rebels" are fairing out.

It's a play of words. No military column was bombed, just a humanitarian column. They shoot down passenger jets and bomb aid trucks. What side is the USA on again?

Fascinating watching the strategies unfold. Putin seems lately to be playing "cups and balls", the game where you hide an object under one of three cups or shells and the observer has to guess which one. Remarkable misdirection going on, such that the scripted news cycles do not even have time to complete. This is risking meltdown among the hypnotized masses who unconsciously are always waiting to be told what to think.

Officially denied convoy... does that mean the convoy was real?  Or is it only when the government that lies, denies, that makes it real...?

I am confused...

The body language (90% of all direct communication) says it ALL.

IMO, Barry is going through the motions, since he already gave it his best shot (at Hope & Change), and has come to terms that he's just a Puppet of TPTB.  Might as well "Just Play It":  Be it 18 Holes or "3 Holes" (Orifices).

Is it just me, or does this guy look alot like Yeltzin? The west loved Yeltzin! According to some, the putsch was also a CIA creation... and the more Yeltzin drank, the more our markets rallied.

BTW, that table Poroshenko's sharing with Obama looks an awful lot like a coffin, especially with those flowers... and Obama's gesture resembles an invitation.

- This, my friend, is where you're going.

Even with 'pics', you don't know if what's splashed in the headlines happened, . . or not.

I watched a movie in the theaters the other week. I couldn't tell CGI from film shots. There ain't no way I assume that what I see on CNN is real anymore.

rumor has it those satanic ukrainian puppet politicians are complicit in selling organs of the dead rebels on the black market.  if this is true, we have enetered a whole new paradigm of evil.  makes me sick.  these "folks" need to go like yesterday. 


and to think our gov supports these freaks is beyond reprehensible

tony wilson's picture

whereever the un or nato go organ trading happens.

death,rape,prostitution,drug dealing and organ trading.

erdugan of turkey has made millions out of the materials and the organ parts and live kids.

this is one big satanic machine hidden behind freedom and transgender and gay and lesbian rights.

ZerOhead's picture

Why would it surprise you?

The Israeli IDF was engaged in removing organs from possibly live Palestinians and then selling them to Rabbis to make a buck ostensibly in the service of their god and country. This is old news for the profit seeking sociopathic human species unfortunately.

Just what KLA did to hundreds of (still missing) people in Bondsteelistan (Kosovo)... 

BTW, a few weeks ago a premiere report was published which confirmed Serbia's allegations of organ-trafficking by KLA during and after the Empire's assault (1999 and forward):

If anyone sees Bernard Kouchner, please rip his heart out on the spot for me. Thank you.

The west suffers major cognitive dissonance. They just can't believe their institutions are that evil. The few times that they have been caught are dismissed as a few bad actors rather than total corruption. The red pill is a bitch.

well, they don't actually have real "video" per se...or actual "photographic" evidence or anything like that.

But word is, they've reached out to WilliamBanzai7 to produce a recreation of the actual events as they unfolded based on word of mouth eye witnesses from the Kiev administration as proof of what happened.   

Hey, us the goods!

Do you remember Baghdad Bob? He had the US army destroyed, routed, annihilated, surrendered, driven into the sea, devoured by the desert, and bleeding to death in a ditch -- must have been at least a dozen times over a two week period -- without any video or footage or anything.

His job was to keep the people thinking there was progress in the war. The very instant anyone thought otherwise they would defect and Saddam Hussein would be toast. Just buying time, because in that situation that is all you can do.

Didn't matter much in the end. Saddam couldn't get out of the country.

Same will now happen in Ukraine. Just buying time before the circus tents fold.

Except we don't even get Bob! Can't they hire him for a reunion tour? We need that old magic ...

And even if it is his dog, it's worth the lulz claiming it's not.

Stumpy4516's picture

cougar, This does appear to be a false story.  But it was not cooked up by Kiev alone. 

The Guardian was involved and initiated the story.  The typical suspects already knew their roles.  NATO and the US were already prepared to "confirm" the story.  Then select politician in the EU play there role and talk of the breaking of international law.

But is that all there is to it?  Why did they go ahead and burn the credibility of the Guardian over this story?  If it is just BS that is forgotten by the public in a few days then it was expensive as the Guardian will no longer be trusted by anyone paying attention.

Coke and Hookers's picture

This appears to be fake as you say, and there are too many holes in the story.

#1 Western "reporters" see a russian column drive into Ukraine - right in front of them.

#2 Ukie artillery hits the column in the middle of the night without any artillery observation assets in the air.

This is total bullshit.

HardAssets's picture

Putin wants the focus to be on the civilian casualties & the shelling by Ukraine forces (puppets of the US neocons).

Why would Putin overtly cross the border with his military at this point in time? Not a smart strategy.

Best strategy - make sure the convoy only has food & medicine & essentials. Film it's transit and passing it out to grateful civilians. Film any actions against it by the Ukes and broadcast that worldwide. The longer term strategy is to show the Europeans how insane are the US neo-cons.

but this is a really odd and stupid lie...   bought some attention for a couple hours, tops...  and then what? kiev is already at zero credibility, so why make it worse in such an obvious way...  odd.
