Pentagon Demands Russia Remove Convoy "Immediately" As NYT Reports Russians Firing Artillery In Ukraine

Tyler Durden's picture


The Russian military has moved artillery units manned by Russian personnel inside Ukrainian territory in recent days and is using them to fire at Ukrainian forces, New York Times reported, citing NATO officials. The Russian move, NYTimes reports, represents a significant escalation of the Kremlin’s involvement in the fighting there and comes as a convoy of Russian trucks with humanitarian provisions has crossed into Ukrainian territory without Kiev’s permission. The US is now getting involved, as WSJ reports,

  • Pentagon calls on Russia to 'Remove Vehicles Immediately' From Ukraine
  • Kirby says "very concerned" by Russian convoy in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Security Service chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said the move amounted to a "direct invasion," and The Pentagon has warned "failure to [remove its vehicles] will result in further costs and isolation."


Time for some YouTube clips?

As NYTimes reports,

The Russian military has moved artillery units manned by Russian personnel inside Ukrainian territory in recent days and is using them to fire at Ukrainian forces, NATO officials said on Friday.




Since mid-August NATO has received multiple reports of the direct involvement of Russian forces, “including Russian airborne, air defense and special operations forces in Eastern Ukraine,” said Oana Lungescu, a spokeswoman for NATO.


“Russian artillery support — both cross-border and from within Ukraine — is being employed against the Ukrainian armed forces,” she added.

And as WSJ reports, The US is not happy...



The United States is very concerned about the movement of a Russian convoy into Ukraine in violation of its territorial integrity and is calling on Moscow to withdraw its equipment and personnel immediately, the Pentagon said on Friday.


"This is a violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by Russia," Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, told a briefing. "Russia must remove its vehicles and its personnel from the territory of Ukraine immediately. Failure to do so will result in additional costs and isolation."

No, not more "costs" - Germany, which is about to enter full blown recession, is crying uncle already. Just ask the NSA...

And the Russian denial...

Who is this NATO? Did anyone ever vote for it? Is is respobsible to anyone other than the MIC?

What about reports of Polish soldiers engaged in combat in the recent cauldron battles new the Russian border? What about USSA and the 5 billion spent provoking the conflict in Ukraine? Why are these NATO fucks so eager to see a war? And why is NATO even involved? Urraine is not a NATO member. It is a bankrupt failed state run by oligarchs with western sympathies who are happy to send untrained conscripts into battle with no weapons, and no food.

The world would be a better place if NATO were disbanded. Let Europe pursue its own interests.

I know how you feel! I try hard to look at both sides in this Ukraine affair. But the US and Ukrainian side is so evil and disgusting that it makes Russia and Putin look almost like good guys.

I watched a number of translated videos of West Ukrainian people confronting military and govenment officials over the draft laws and the fate of their family members already drafted to the war. The average people know what the new Kiev government is, the people demand they stop lying with every breath. Kiev's coup government was put there with American money, media and CIA actions on the ground, aka the sniper affair.

The US demands made of Russia are desighed to make it look like the mass defeats of the Ukrainian army attacking Donetsk look like a case of Russia invading and beating the Ukrainian army. THUS, the Kiev coup leaders can dodge responsibility for the many thousands of deaths of soldiers and the series of terrible battlefield defeats. The Kiev Junta is now screaming "We are fighting Russian artillery, Russian Special Forces, Russian Tanks." This makes them free from the TRUE FACT, that rebels with Russian military equipement aid, are defeating the stupid and feeble Kiev Junta commanders on the battle field.

The US threats to Russia are coming at a moment when the great assualt on Donetsk of the last few weeks has been defeated in a terrible series of battles in which so many Ukrainian troops have died and been captured that Kiev is scared that the people will perform a second revolution and throw them out of Kiev! So, it is MOST IMPORTANT that the military defeats be blamed on a fake Russian Invasion, the USA help Kiev's liar propaganda, because the Kiev Junta is a US creation.

Blaming the Russians for the failure of the idots in Kiev is one angle.


The second angle is blaming the Russian invasion for the collapse in western equity markets when the Fed decides to turn off the money spigot. The markets crash and Obummer and the rest turn and blame Russian actions for thie own incompetence.

I used Duckduckgo and keywords, "Donetsk Attack" and you will find more than enough information to keep you busy about previous attacks. Yes, the big push on Donetsk was a few weeks ago and was repelled. You will see that in early August, around the 5th, there was a major attempt by the Kiev forces to surround Donetsk and then another attack back in May, you can also look up the battle at Donetsk airport. In all cases the people of Donetsk, the ethnic Russian Ukrainians repelled the forces from Kiev. Search engines work great, use them.

Nah, this was the plan all along. Wait until Russia "does something" (in this case cross the border with part of the aid convoy) then make one claim of aggression after another until a plausible false-flag is created by the press.

The improvisational part is merely having to try so hard at plausibility in face of all of the failed previous attempts.

Sociopaths generally have very little concern as to the plausibility or narrative consistency of the lies they tell.  Fortunately for them (and unfortunately for everybody else) most people tend to assume that others are acting in good faith, and so don't tie everything together.  This is why sociopaths are able to get away with what they do.

Indeed McMolotov, What have we heard lately of the Rebel and Russian shoot down of the MH-17?  Do you think that false flag has run into evidence toruble? If America had the real evidence they claim to, right now they would be blasting it all over CNN, 24/7. Wolf Blitzer, the Israeli, would be screaming for war and arrest of Putin. YET, instead all is SILENT. The great corporate media lie machine is SILENT.

These flase claims of Russian invasion make the 100th time Kiev has claimed these same claims. Never one video, never on 3rd party not working for the CIA have produced evidence.

What Kiev's troops experience may indeed look like Russian Artillery fire, so they may be excused for their claims. The Russian-Ukrainian border has a 2 mile wide neutral zone, a no go zone to prevent any interactions between the two border guards. I will admit, and rebels admit that THEY are using the 2 mile buffer zone to outflank Ukrain's army and to base heavy guns. This is a vilolation in a sense. But the rebels are Ukrainian and thus are only bending the rules not breaking them.

As for NATO, they are fucking liars. They helped Kiev create the false flag MH-17 lie! NATO helped kill all thos einnocent people, including lots of kids, Gunned out of the air by 2 Ukrainian SU-25 fighter bombers with 30mm cannon fire aimed at the pilot side cockpit. Wreckage shows clearly a mass of 30mm cannon shell holes right below the pilots head, and obve and behind the pilot. Ukie crime! NATO lies!

There is a reason the corporate media lie machine has gone silent regarding MH-17. The Russians know, and have incontravertible proof of, exactly what brought that plane down. The US/NATO/Yatzi gang knows this. And the Russians know that they know this.

The US/NATO/Yatzi gang is shitting bricks, because they know that they fucked up bigtime. The MH-17 incident is a predicament for which they have no solution. It cannot be bribed, bombed, or wished away. All they can do is ignore and delay.

Sooner or later, the US/NATO/Yatzi gang will have to crawl on their knees to Putin, begging for some kind of deal. It might involve pulling NATO back to where it was in 1992 (or even the dissolution of NATO), it might involve removing sanctions on Iran, it might involve a peaceful settlement with Syria, it might involve fixing Palestine. Hell, it might involve all of these things.

Of course, someone will have to take the fall for MH-17. My guess is that they'll throw Kolomoisky under the bus, since he was probably the one behind the wetwork.

Originally classified as orphans waiting to be adopted, closer examination of tattoos revealed these orphans to possibly be wanted members of the notorious M-13 gang involved in drug running to the US.

Just ask a sheeple and they will tell you they read that artillery equipment was with the convoy.........and that's why it got attacked.

Some recent lies by the Propagandist for the Pentagon on Ukraine:


New York Times attempts to whitewash its role in publishing faked Ukraine photos

Yesterday, amid rising anger among New York Times readers over the newspaper’s publication of faked US State Department photos, the Times issued a whitewash of its role by its public editor, Margaret Sullivan, titled “Aftermath of Ukraine Photo Story Shows Need for More Caution.”

The Times’ original piece, “Photos Link Masked Men in East Ukraine to Russia,” used doctored photos to falsely identify armed pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine as Russian soldiers. In one instance, the Timesposted photos of two different bearded men, one a protester in Ukraine and the other a Russian fighter in Chechnya, down-sampled to such a low resolution that they appeared to be the same person. In another case, theTimes published a photo taken in Ukraine but claimed it was taken in Russia to supposedly prove that the fighters in it were Russian.

the Times rapidly moved on to its next assignment from the State Department—a front-page article published yesterday alleging that Russian President Vladimir Putin has a secret fortune of between $40 billion and $70 billion. The Times acknowledged in its own article that the allegations consist of “rumours and speculation” with “little if any hard evidence.” That did not prevent it from seeking to legitimize the gossip by elevating it to the status of a prominent “news” item.

And remember Judith Miller and her lies about Iraq?

You know what we should do? Rather than attacking Russia militarily, let’s freeze Putin’s “fortune of between $40 billion and $70 billion” (NY Times revelation). Then see if we can find it.

Forbes Columnist Paul Roderick Gregory made the same claim without proof in March.

Wrote Gregory in Follow His Money: “Among these [Russian] kleptocrats, Vladimir Putin could well be the richest, but his wealth is carefully hidden. It is taboo and dangerous even to talk about. Forbes has not been able to estimate his fortune.”

At the same time, Gregory directed President Obama to “act and act now!... There is no need to establish Russian violations of international treaties.”

Been dutifully listening to Steven Cohen on the John Bachelor show.  They are obviously pro Russian, but they make a good case in the latest interview that the very existence of this convoy has gone a long way to making western Europe see the scope of the humanitarian crisis in the East and America and Kiev's utter indifference to same.


Combined with recent repeated Kiev chicken little screams of "invasion" that even the US says it cannot confirm and I think Putin probably feels like he can do this with Germany's implied consent. People are begininng to see Kiev's utter corruption/incompetance so unless something big happens, Putin appears to be winning again, simply by "not losing".


Looks like the rebels defending the cities will be well fed.

Agreed. Success is a matter of opinion. If you think teaching 2+2=5 is complete insanity and setting up children to be vapid, low IQ consumers you are correct. However, if you think it's being done due to 'incompetance' or 'stupidity' and it's not intentional you probably listen to Glenn Beck.

The same people who say the govt schools are failing are the same people who think Obama actually makes decisions and is incompetant, detached and unqualified to be President. His tenure as the figurehead for the wider agenda of the TPTB has been an astonishing success by almost every metric.

Success is in the eye of the beholder.

Maybe its an "out" for the US, NATO and the Ukraine government.  They can retreat fast, secure Kiev and the centre of the country and tell their respective populations through the press that Russia invaded for a day or two and then never mention it again (it goes down the memory hole).

edit: My theory doesn't account for the fact that they have been acting irrationally up until now and they'll all be left holding a stinking pile of shit while Novorossiya begins a rennaisance as a quasi independent state.

The significance of the Russian decision to move the humanitarian convoy into Novorussia

The Vineyard of the Saker

22 August

It appears that the Russians got tired of waiting.  I suggest that you all carefully parse the Statement of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs I posted earlier today [linked from original above].  This is an interesting document because besides an explanation of the Russian decision to move it, it is also, potentially, a legal defense or an unprecedented Russian decision: to overtly violate the Ukrainian sovereignty.  Let me explain…

…there is no doubt at all that the Russians did deliberately and officially chose to ignore Kiev and move in.  Now, in fact, in reality, this is clearly the logically, politically and morally right thing to do.  But in legal terms, this clearly a violation of Ukrainian sovereignty…

...from a legal point of view this is a threat to use force ("complete responsibility for the possible consequences") inside the putatively sovereign territory of the Ukraine.

The US and their main agent in Kiev, Nalivaichenko, immediately and correctly understood the threat: not only did this convoy bring much needed humanitarian aid to Lugansk, it also provided a fantastic political and legal "cover" for future Russian actions inside Novorussia.  And by "actions" I don't necessarily mean military actions, although that is not [< should be?: now] clearly and officially possible.  I also mean legal actions such as recognizing Novorussia...
