Ukraine Issues Statement On "Illegal" Entry By Russian Convoy, Warns Of "Planned Provocation"

Tyler Durden's picture

Because the comedy never ends. Btw, how is that "evidence" of a destroyed Russian convoy coming along... or the MH-17 ATC tapes? Any minute now?

From the Ukraine Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

Statement of the MFA of Ukraine in connection with illegal crossing of the state border of Ukraine by the Russian convoy


On August, 22 Russia began smuggling humanitarian aid to Ukraine, ignoring established international rules, procedures and agreements, without the consent and escort of the International Committee of the Red Cross.


Although the border and customs services of Ukraine have already started clearance of the Russian convoy, in the morning Ukrainian officials were blocked by the Russian forces and detached from the inspection of the rest of the trucks in the column, despite previous agreements and the fact that they had been invited to the territory of Russia. We are concerned about the safety of our employees. Moreover, deep concern is raised because so far neither Ukrainian side nor the ICRC are aware of the content of the cargo.


The fact that Russian trucks entered the territory of Ukraine without proper border and customs procedures and that the cargo was not donated to the representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross indicates deliberate and aggressive nature of Russia’s actions.


As we have previously emphasized the Russian side is fully responsible for the safety of the cargo. It is important to note that the Ukraine has already taken all necessary measures to ensure the security of the cargo.


In order to prevent any provocations we have issued all necessary instructions for the safe passing of the convoy. Despite all attempts by the Ukrainian side the contact between the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the one of Russia, has not been established, which is critical to ensure security along the route. We point out that terrorists carry out mortar attacks along the possible route of the cargo.


We also are not aware of the content of the agreements of the Russian side with Luhansk insurgents and we do not exclude the possibility of any planned provocation.


We consider this act to be another flagrant violation of the fundamental principles of international law, including inviolability of borders, non-interference in the internal affairs of another state and bona fide fulfillment of international obligations by the Russian Federation.


We call on all international partners to join the strong condemnation of illegal and aggressive acts of the Russian Federation.

So it's "the Ukraine" after all? And some headlines from Yatseniuk:


And the punchline:


So, attack imminent which will then be blamed on Russia as a false flag attemp provocation. Got it.

is it not a "farce" to declare you have destroyed a convoy and then have zero evidence?

Awesome video, seen it before. It is so rare to find original thinkers in economics, even if we disagree with some of his assertions.

Yes, excellent geopolitical and economic-warfare analysis. No wonder he is under sanctions...

"Btw, how is that "evidence" of a destroyed Russian convoy coming along... or the MH-17 ATC tapes"

My guess is the ATC tapes indicate suspicious things, and the black box voice recorder confirms those same details, and hence no release.   A "doctored" release is too risky as there may be independent recording of the ATC comm.

He could not have nailed it better, as to what's really going on at the Big Picture, Big Game level.

As I've posted yesterday (5125390), Russia does not need to invade the Ukraine.  But Russia does need to prepare for war with the US, via its NATO proxies.  Fact is, "the US is Militarizing Ukraine For War With Russia" -Sergei Glazyev (Economic Adviser to Pres. Putin)

A 'problem' is that Kiev does not have direct control over many of their units in the civil war. I bet some of the far right troops are lining their sights up now.


Maybe hit the trucks on the way home. Less PR blowback.

Poroshenko changed the game drastically. Very capable man.


He is matching or beating Putin in the Propaganda War.


Quite impressive.

Latina Lover's picture

What utter rot!

Other than cheap rhetoric, there is nothing to support your statements.

ekm1's picture

Most of the world actually believed the "destruction" of the russian convoy, which never happened of course, as I suspected from the beginning.


Poroshenko is trying very hard to show Ukraine as the victim and he is managing very well.


This is very important.

The more the world is convinced that Ukraine is the victim, the easier it gets to actually mount a real counter attack on Putin.

Should give some credit to his American media and white house team for trying to keep him in the game.

If the war in the Ukraine was going well for the Kiev Junta, you can bet that washington vipers like ReichsFuehrer Nudelman would be front and center in Kiev, taking credit.  Instead, she is hiding under a rock, keeping her ugly mouth shut, as the Ukraine politically implodes. This  tells you what is really going on, that the Ukraine is losing badly and political operatives like Nudelman are disassociating themselves from the mess.

Zionist western media is trying very hard to show Ukraine as the victim.

Zionist western media is trying very hard to show Israel as the victim.


Same motives.

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." 

Where is your CIA war aka Zionism..... propaganda now?

EKM1, I see, you come from the Nudelman state department school that reality is whatever we say it is, straight out of Alice in Wonderland.

The world in general, and Europe and the US in particular, couldn't give a rats fuck about your shitty Ukraine.  The average consumer only cares about soap operas, sex,  latest POP music stars, and in the case of Americans, filling their stomachs with McDonalds garbage.

There will be no real counter attack, the Ukraine will freeze in the dark by November and the rest of the world will sleep on.

Other than flapping his lips, he's not the one doing anything. The heavy lifting is being done by AP/Reuters/etc... Question is, when is the next false-flag coming that will allow these baseless accusations to stick?

Latina Lover's picture

After MH17, it is obvious that the Ukies can fuck up anything, so a false flag is somewhat doubtful.  Nevertheless, it would not surprise me, since these bunglerers are incapable of original thought, always following the same script.

I posted this yesterday but, it's worth posting it again. Ukraine in spite of all it's stuff ups has the support of the EU US and other western Nato countries.

On Aug 8th Australia, Holland, EU and Ukraine signed a "Non Disclosure Agreement" on the results of the investigation of what happened to MH17.

Any country can VETO the findings for ANY reason without ANY explanation and make the results classified!

Read it here

ekm1's picture

I'd say it becomes a matter of who will show himself to be better at false flags, Putin or Poroshenko.


I see this war as dragging for sometime, Syria style without a major false flag on both sides

NotApplicable's picture

I just don't see Poroshenko as being in charge of anything, not even propaganda. He is nothing but the puppet du jour. He likely doesn't utter a word without clearance from his NATO handlers, and I bet he doesn't even control Kiev, let alone the whole of Ukraine.

Given this is a friday, I'm guessing the convoy will be attacked either after noon (NY time), or Saturday morning when not many will be around to read past the AP headlines. By Monday, who knows what will have transpired to ensure WWIII finally gets off of the ground.

Oh, and I'm not junking you for your opinion (other than that first silly post).

Latina Lover's picture

If the war drags on EKM1, then Putin wins, the Ukraine loses.

So, in your world view, being a pack of murderous lying assholes makes for a sympathetic propaganda coup.


ekm1's picture

There is a war going on, hence both sides are killing each other.

I am only analysing.

EKM!, You are only lying. Were you analysing, you  would be objective, not making blanket, unsubstantiated remarks

Informed people don't consider the western world to be "the world":




GREEN: countries where media call defenders of Novorossiya "self-defence militia"

RED: countries where media call defenders of Novorossiya "separatists/terrorists"

[ the one GREEN country in Europe is Serbia ]

Kill me and eat me if you like (not really) but to some degree ekm is right. I have tried to talk to friends and family and they just believe US always good, Russia always bad. I try to work with some of the facts we get on this site, but more people read drudge, USA Today, Fox, local paper, etc. then read ZH. It is sad what has happened, and will continue to happen, to American citizens as the top frank-einsteins  of the world battle for whose dick is bigger.

No other way I know to describe the situation we are all surrounded by; it is pure evil.

I don't drink alcohol almost at all.

Wine sometime, beer only during summer hot days.

All in all, maybe 20 beers and 10 glasses of wine annually.

I have no decision making power neither with Poroshenko nor with Putin.
