Russia Prepares 2nd Humanitarian Convoy "Invasion"

Tyler Durden's picture


Following the 'success' of the first humanitarian convoy, Bloomberg reports that Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said the nation plans to send a second convoy loaded with humanitarian aid to Ukraine. he U.S. and the European Union condemned the decision to send the first convoy of about 280 trucks, which the government in Kiev called an "invasion," and the US accused Russia of painting military vehicles white. This time will be different, according to Lavrov, as the government in Moscow is maneuvering to avoid the border standoff and uproar that marred its first convoy last week, adding “We’ll work on ensuring security guarantees from the side of the militias." Ironically, Lavrov also reminded a "disinformation"-prone media that Russia remains the only nation that continues to seek an MH17 probe as Ukraine has still not released Dnipropetrovsk air traffic control recordings.


As Bloomberg reports,

Russia has informed Ukraine of plans to dispatch another column of trucks this week, with the convoy taking the same route through rebel-held territory as the tractor-trailers that returned to Russia two days ago, Lavrov told reporters in Moscow today.


The U.S. and the European Union condemned the decision to send the first convoy of about 280 trucks, which the government in Kiev called an “invasion.”

We want to coordinate our actions with Ukrainian authorities, which are also planning to send additional humanitarian aid to the southeast,” Lavrov said. “We’ll work on ensuring security guarantees from the side of the militias.”


The government in Moscow is maneuvering to avoid the border standoff and uproar that marred its first convoy last week.

But we are sure the US will spin this one way or another...

Lavrov said he had no information about the incident and accused Ukraine of providing “a lot of disinformation about our invasions.”

Furthermore, Lavrov notes, Russia Is Only Country Seeking MH17 Incident Probe

Those who accused Russia over Malaysian airplane crash in Ukraine are now silent, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says at briefing in Moscow.


In substance we are the only ones trying to keep attention on this very serious problem”: Lavrov


Ukraine is not providing Dnipropetrovsk air traffic control recordings: Lavrov

Ukraine, it would appear remains mired in problems... despite the market's pricing-in de-escalation...

Speaking at the parade in Kiev, President Petro Poroshenko announced a military spending increase, pledging to allocate more than 40 billion hryvnia ($3 billion) in 2015-2017.


“Unfortunately, there will always be a military threat to Ukraine,” Poroshenko said. “War has come from the side nobody expected.”


German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who met Poroshenko in Kiev two days ago, said a breakthrough is unlikely at talks between him and Russian President Vladimir Putin tomorrow.


The meeting won’t bring about “one big breakthrough” though “you have to talk with each other if you want to find solutions,” Merkel said in an interview with Germany’s ARD television yesterday.

Russia Is Only Country Seeking MH17 Incident Probe

Why have the media and Obama administration gone silent on MH17?

By Niles Williamson 
18 August 2014


The deafening silence of the US media and government about the investigation into the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 one month ago reeks of a cover-up.

In the hours and days immediately after the crash, without a single shred of evidence, US officials alleged that the passenger jet was shot down by an SA-11 ground-to-air missile fired from pro-Russian separatist-held territory in eastern Ukraine. They launched a political campaign to obtain harsh economic sanctions against Russia and strengthen NATO’s military posture in Eastern Europe.

Picking up on the scent, the CIA attack dogs in the US and European media blamed the crash squarely on Russian President Vladimir Putin. The cover of the July 28 print edition of German news magazine Der Spiegel showed the images of MH17 victims surrounding bold red text reading “Stoppt Putin Jetzt!” (Stop Putin Now!). A July 26 editorial in the Economist declared Putin to be the author of MH17’s destruction, while the magazine ghoulishly superimposed Putin’s face over a spider web on its front cover, denouncing Putin’s “web of lies.”

Anyone comparing the media’s demonization of Putin with their treatment of Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi had to conclude that Washington was launching a campaign for regime change in Russia like those it carried out in Libya and Iraq—this time, recklessly pushing the United States towards war with a nuclear-armed power, Russia.

Having built up the crash into a casus belli against Russia, however, the US media suddenly dropped the matter completely. The New York Times has not found it fit to print a word on the MH17 crash since August 7.

Ukraine, or what's left of it, is being looted on a massive scale under the cover of Washington and Brussels. That's why they're so silent about atrocities committed by the their henchmen. In a couple of months, sadly, there will be no country to speak of.

The Ukie fantasy is to provoke Russia hoping Putin will invade so that NATO will save their sorry asses.  Good luck with that, Porkyschenko.   Putin will wait for the Ukraine economy to completely implode and then help sort out the mess with whoever ends up roasting the Porkyschenko during the next coup.

What I want to know is, why hasn't someone published the actual audio.  If it's a radio signal other people know what it was and what was said - period.  Even if encrypted, other people have that data.  I think the Russians have it with helpful English translation overlay but for some reason they arn't publishing it??

The Dutch have given mid-September as a release of the black box stuff... won't tell much anyways.

Just another dodge by Putin, a master of disinfo.

It may not have been Putin directly, but you have (former - wonder why???) Ppro-Russian separatist leaders outright BRAGGING about it, until they realized they had blood on their hands, and then scrambled to *try* to hide their culpability and pride for the whole doing.

What are the black boxes going to show that we don't already know?

Someone with a brain already knows how to figure out "who did it".... All you need is a simple piece of shrapnel... which would have been easily obtainable if the separatists hadn't been ordered to cut up the fuselage and take part of it away for "sanitizing".

If the Flight recorder and Air Traffic Control recordings by Kiev proved Russian guilt, you can be sure that Anderson Cooper and the rest of the MSM pressitutes would be screaming it 24/7 .   Instead, they are trying to bury the story.

Agreed, and the article he links to proves nothing, and the articles linked within the article are from a Kyiv rag.

I've never seen it take over two weeks to release black box data once the boxes were recovered.

Not to mention the confiscation of the tower transcripts by Kiev Security Police.

This action to classify information is to prevent the MSM from saying things like "Lisa Smith was found strapped in her seat with her left leg missing and her right arm ripped off at the elbow or Adam Jones was only identified by bones found in the dog house of a local canine in the village adjacent to the crash site".  Grieving relatives don't want to read about the gore of their loved one's death which the press would surely print to sell a few more papers.

following the Saker's and the Colonel's websites as they report on the war in Ukie land I cannot help but think that Porkie is really working for Putin, (and that is a good thing), I mean really can ANY war commander be so clueless?.

Russia is way ahead of the "West", on planning AND executing this geopolitical event.

Porky is working for the USSA. From the state departments viewpoint, if they can't own or control the Ukraine, they are happy to destroy it to hurt Russia.

What makes laugh is that the Ukie nationalists are too stupid to get this.

They are living their moment of glory, parading drunk in the streets, fat asses squeezed into regulation Nazi black, pudgy faces set in the dumb smirk of the bully, killing and terrorizing with the blessing of Washington, and they can't see that far. They are zombies.

As for the others (the general population), they're brainwashed by a constant outflow of Russia-hating propaganda.
