Ukraine Accuses Russia Of Launching Invasion, Then Promptly Retracts

Tyler Durden's picture


It has been a busy morning: following a substantial surge in Ukraine separatist activity in the past 24 hours, which saw them capture the strategic Sea of Azov port town of Novoazovsk, a move which the NYT classified as "Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front", Ukraine has turned on the disinformation spigot to max resulting in a constant verbal, and headline, diarrhea as follows:


So sure was Ukraine that this time (unlike all those previous disinformation launches) Russia has invaded that Anton Herashchenko, adviser to Ukrainian Interior Ministry, actually commented on his Facebook page saying "Invasion of regular Russian army of Putin to Ukraine is an accomplished fact,” Adding that Putin "de-facto places Ukraine on a war-footing at a time when a decree was signed to dissolve parliament."

Well, yes, Ukraine has no government, but Russia of course denied all of it:


All of this latest disinformation propaganda was summarized by Reuters best:

Ukraine accused Russia on Thursday of mounting an invasion in the southeast of the country in support of pro-Moscow separatist rebels. Ukraine's security and defense council said the border town of Novoazovsk and other parts of Ukraine's south-east had fallen under the control of Russian forces who together with rebels were staging a counter-offensive.


"A counter-offensive by Russian troops and separatist units is continuing in south-east Ukraine," the council said in a post on Twitter.


President Petro Poroshenko, in a statement explaining his decision to cancel a visit to Turkey, said: "An invasion of Russian forces has taken place."


Russia denies intervening in Ukraine by arming the rebels or sending soldiers across the border. The defense ministry declined to comment on reports of Russian tanks in Novoazovsk.


“The Russian authorities clearly said many times there are no regular Russian troops there. Russia is not taking part in this armed conflict,” said a Russian diplomatic source. The latest escalation in the five-month crisis came only two days after the presidents of the two countries held their first talks in more than two months and agreed to work towards launching a peace process.


Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk appealed to the United States, European Union and G7 countries "to freeze Russian assets and finances until Russia withdraws armed forces, equipment and agents". Rebel advances this week have opened a new front in the conflict just as Ukraine's army appeared to have gained the upper hand, virtually encircling the separatists in their main strongholds of Donetsk and Luhansk.


Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, said on Facebook: "The invasion of Putin’s regular Russian army of Ukraine is now an established fact!"


French President Francois Hollande said it would be "intolerable and unacceptable" if it was proved true that Russian troops had entered Ukrainian territory.

So a lot of words all of which were best summarized by Ukraine's Prime Minister in dissolutia, Yatseniuk, who as a reminder does not have an official role any more after the Ukraine government was dissolved (on Twitter) last week:


Ok so far so good: accusations, counteraccusations - we are used to that.

But where things once again got surreal, making everyone not only laugh but wonder how the CIA has lost the plotline so badly, was the following "clarification" headline from Reuters, which noticed some rather substantial change in the language on the website of the Ukraine president:


Indeed, instead of explicitly saying a "Russian military invasion has taken place", the website now reads: "I have made a decision to cancel my working visit to the Republic of Turkey due to sharp aggravation of the situation in Donetsk region, particularly in Amvrosiivka and Starobeshevo, as Russian troops were actually brought into Ukraine," the President noted."

For all those wondering if to BTFATH or STFR, please sit tight until Ukraine gets its marching orders from the US State Dept whether to brand the "Russian troops being brought into Ukraine" as an invasion, or merely an accidental crossing, depending on how all of this will impact US strategy in Syria, which all of this is really all about: because remember, if and when the US begins to bomb the Assad regime under the guise it is fighting ISIS, all it will do is greenlight Qatar sending its gas pipeline to Europe... which after all has been the plan all along since 2012.

So stay tuned as this "socially-networked war" comedy unfolds before our eyes.

The Ukie government today is the same Ukie government that claimed Russia shot down MH17, offering  a doctored You-Tube Video as evidence.  Notice however, how MH17 was memory holed by the Ukies and Western Media after the Russians presented radar records and other evidence showing that MH17 was shadowed by 2 Ukie jets immediately before it was shot down.

Who do you believe now, the Russians or the Ukies?

"The Russo-Georgian War (also known as the South Ossetia War, Five-Day War, August War or Russia's invasion of Georgia), a conflict between Georgia and Russia, along with the separatist regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia, took place in August 2008."

that would fall within Bush's term, would it not?

btw, even if Russia actually did invade Ukraine, which is at best unclear, it would seem to be a logical and beneficial decision.  The kiev regime is an illegitimate murderous banker slave state.

The CIA knows what they are doing.  The same thing is done in the US.  Boldly put out a story with firm conclusions, then before those interested in the truth can discredit it they put out a correction, which cuts off those about to call them on their first lie.  Then you have to correct the correction and possibly continue this a few times. 

What happens is that it gets confusing to the masses, those who write the truth get mixed in with all the corrections, soon the sheep simply believe the original story is mostly true.  It surprises me how many sheep believe Russia shot down MH17 with the US trolls/mouthpieces finishing the lie by saying that Russia shot it down but did so due to a mistake (George Washington at ZH for example).  As a compromise the sheep take that explanation and then the msm fades out the story.

In the US the sheep are so programed to believe what "accepted" sources tell them they never think enough to realize they are being systematicly lied to. 

The typical american believes Russia started everything in Ukrain, they are aborbing the lies and getting nervous, in time they will conclude the west must do something to contain the evil Russia and see Russia as the aggressor.

ZDF here is currently reporting this story, a relevant portion being this:


Die pro-russischen Separatisten bestätigten, dass Hunderte von Russen an ihrer Seite kämpften, "Wir haben nie ein Hehl daraus gemacht, dass es unter uns viele Russen gibt, ohne deren Hilfe wir es sehr schwer hätten", sagte Separatistenführer Andrej Sachartschenko dem russischen Fernsehsender Rossija-24. "In unseren Reihen hat es etwa 3.000 bis 4.000 gegeben. Viele sind heimgefahren. Viel mehr sind aber geblieben. Leider gab es auch Tote."  Bei den Russen handele es sich ausschließlich um Freiwillige.

Pro russian rebels have confirmed that hundreds of Russians are fighting on their side. "We have never made it a secret, that many Russians are with us, and without them, we would have had a very hard time", said rebel leader Andrej Sachartschenko to russian TV Rossija-24.  "In our unit are between 3000 and 4000.  Many have gone home.  Many more have stayed.  Unfortunately some have died."  The Russians are all volunteers.

"Urlaub an der Front"

"Vacation on the Front"

Unter den Freiwilligen sind laut Sachartschenko viele reguläre russische Soldaten, die ihre Freizeit an der ostukrainischen Front verbringen: "Sie ziehen es vor, ihren Urlaub nicht am Strand, sondern Schulter an Schulter mit ihren Brüdern zu verbringen, die um die Freiheit des Donbass kämpfen." Zudem kämen viele frühere Berufssoldaten aus Russland. "Sie kämpfen mit uns, weil sie dies als ihre Pflicht verstehen."

Among the volunteers, proclaims Sachartschenko, are many regular russian soldiers who are on leave and are spending their time on the eastern Ukrainian front: "They would rather stand shoulder to shoulder with their brothers, and fight for the freedom of Donbass, than spending their time on the beach."  Additionally, many ex-soldiers from Russia have also joined.  "They are also fighting with us because they believe it is their duty to do so."

Die Regierung in Kiew und der Westen werfen Russland seit Beginn des bewaffneten Konflikts vor, dass die Regierung in Moskau den Separatisten militärisch hilft. Der Kreml wies den Vorwurf stets zurück.

The government in Kiev, and the West, have accused Russia since the beginning of the armed confict, that the Russian government in Moscow has been helping the rebels with military support.  The Kremlin has rejected the accusation.

Doch selbst russische Medien hatten zuletzt über geheime Beerdigungen berichtet, bei denen angeblich gefallene russische Soldaten beigesetzt wurden. Zu den Berichten äußerte sich nun erstmals auch der Kreml. "Das benötigt eine ausführliche Prüfung, bevor irgendwelche Schlüsse gezogen werden", sagte Sprecher Dmitri Peskow.

However, even the russian media have recently reported that secret funerals have taken place, and they are believed to have been russian soldiers who have died in battle.  Regarding the news reports, the Kremlin has responded for the first time.  "We need to undertake a complete investigation and avoid any pre-conclusions," said Press secretary Dimitri Peskow.

Ella Poljakowa vom russischen Verband der Soldatenmütter sprach von etwa 100 russischen Soldaten, die in eine Klinik in St. Petersburg gebracht wurden. Wo und wie die Männer verwundet wurden, sei unbekannt, sagte Poljakowa, die dem Kreml-Menschenrechtsrat angehört.

Ella Poljakowa from the russian Mothers of Soldiers organisation, mentioned that close to 100 russian soldiers have been brought to a hospital in St. Petersburg.  Where and how the soldiers were wounded, is unknown, said Poljakowa, who is also a member of the Kremlin´s Human Rights Commission.

Here are some of the dead Russian "soldiers"/invaders. Their mothers can not understand how they ended up in Ukraine. Their vkontakte pages(Russian facebook) pages are suddenly deleted.  Echo Moscow along with Dozdj TV(????? TV) are the only 2 opposition(politicans that are against the fascist Medvedev/Putin duo for decades to come) news agencies to mainstream Kremlin control TV channels in Russia.


In Kharkiv(largest Russian speaking city in Donbass) a provocator from Moscow raised Russian flag on Kharkov Administration building, but thats all the managed to do in Kharkov. No one is attacking Russians there, no banderas running wild, no bombings. Donetsk, Slovyansk and Lugansk were not as lucky and Russian citizens such as Strelkov, Babaj and others took over the city. How many banderas are now attacking Russians in Slovyansk or bombing their cities now that Russian citizen Strelkov and his buddies are gone? None. But Kremlin TV doesnt report on that, neither does Zerohedge...


I hope they are burning in hell along with their buddies Stalin, Lenin if they went willingly to fight Ukrainian soldiers.

If it was not for Russian citizens such as Strelkov, there would be no need to bomb building in those cities, those Russian seperatists are cowards, hiding in buildings and then crying to their Russian TV agencies on how Ukraine is attacking them. Can you tell me why no one is attacking THE LARGEST Russian CITY in Ukraine, Kharkov? No bombings, no banderas and provocators were kicked out the first day from there after they raised Russian flag on Kharkov administration building. No bombings and banderas in Slovyansk,Marioupol now that Strelkov is gone also...

Seems like it, most of them just spew out whatever garbage RT is giving them today. I dont think any of them can say what I wrote above is wrong. Problem is many of them dont read Russian, thats why they fail the see the reality why so many people in Donbass(!) including Kharkov who are Russians are fighting against the seperatists. But whatever, seems like a waste of time to discuss with Kremlin TV zombies as they just write bullshit with no real substance in replies.

Would be nice to see Zerohedge to post the story about 400+ dead Russian soldiers who were killed in Ukraine and what their mothers are saying, but I wont get my hopes up for any objective reporting on this website.

Or what about a NYT article discussing hte various adjective choices for the EXAMT SAME PEOPLE at different stages in teh conflict?  What about the article in Der Spiegel of the over 2,000 civilians killed in the East, or the 350 PEOPLE LOCKED INSIDE THE WORKERS UNION BUILDING IN ODESSA which was light on fire, and anyone who jumped out was shot!?  


Where were those articles you horrid excuse for a human being.

What about when those who were hiding in that building AFTER attacking "Ultras/Football fans" who were marching in the support of United Ukraine in Odessa. They shot them WITH GUNS(yes there are videos of that) 2 of those Ultras, this is what set it off. Of course that was not excuse to set that building on fire. But at the heat of the moment, when your buddies are shot by the Russian provocators they probably were not thinking straight.

I already said, IT WAS WRONG TO DO THAT and it was a tragic event, no question about that. But you have to also look at what/who started it. Do you know what started WW1? Archduke Franz Ferdinand assasination pretty much started the WW1. Was that justified? No, but that was the reason for it.

I would venture to say it was the Serbs not going along with Austria/Hungary's demands after the Archduke's assasination.  Thereafter I place the blame solely on the idiot French and British for declaring war on the Germans after Austria/Hungary declared war on them.

RisingSun is probably a Ukrainian Nazi trolls, spreading obvious Nazi propaganda.

The attack in Odessa was carried out by Right Sector Nazi thugs, many of whom have been identified and one of them even killed afterwards. The thugs came to Odessa from Kiev and other Nazi infested cities in other parts of Ukraine. The victims of the Odessa attacks were mostly young socialists from the Borotba movement. The Nazis even had their own operatives false-flag attack them, to make it look like they were first attacked.

BTW, Kharkov is not part of Donbass, and actually, what's starting to happen there and in other cities as well, is a dramatic rise in partisan assaults on Ukraine Nazi army units. The whole Nazi "government" there is going down in flames.

This is easily and objectively verifiable through simple search engine exercises. Failure to admit to this (refering to the Odessa incident) will result in you going to Hell at time of death. It just cannot be debated.

Thank you in advance for your time and understanding.

You had me until the last sentence.(although you did say if they went willingly) Russian Soldiers are in Ukraine assisting the the "seperatist" for sure, however most foot soldiers are just pawns and the great evil lies with their leaders.

I don't see a good guy in this conflict.  All the Putin lovers on here thing the man shits ice cream and on the other hand this Kiev crowd is nothing but puppets for the West (Europe and USA) if you recall  Yanukovych had agreed to early elections and agreed to a peaceful process, then the CIA back crowd formed a coup and overthrew Yanukovych through violence and disorder, thus basically backing the pro-russian crowd in to a corner and giving Putin the cover to come to the rescue.


As in all wars this is a power struggle between evil rich egotistical leaders, who send out the poor the common man to fight and die for them, same as it ever was.

Good thing that the soviet generation is replaced by more loyal younger generation who can actually speak my language unlike their parents who still cant speak my language after 50+ years and choose to not become citizens, because that would require them to learn our language and history.

I wrote last week in other thread -  5130089

The Baltic countries are just the tiny spots on the borders of the giant Russia, in terms of the every aspect that matters include but not limited to the land masses and populations.

Lithuania has 3.001 millions, Latvia 2.036 millions and Estonia 1.283 millions...altogether less than 6.4 mils vs. 142.5 mils of the Russian Federation.

It's very UNWISE and thoughtless for the little men to antagonize their way much bigger neighbor. Those tiny states can try to alter every aspect of their countries but not their neighbor!

My very suggestion to the Baltic folks, try at best to be good and well behaved neighbors to your doorstep giant, and pay the duly respect to their size and strength!


++ Same case and suggestion to the Finns (about 5.448 mils); it's a fatal blunder to abandon its neutrality! It won't get anything but will pay everything one day...


Let me tell the folks there once again in simple words, in real life, size means strength and it does matter! :-)

You guys are better off stocking up on ammo and finding alternative energy sources other than Gazprom. Joining NATO would just irritate Russia at this point.

Exactly! One of the fundamental problems is the unsecured feelings among the consumers in Europe about the future.

"What is wrong with the European consumers?

If you look at any unofficial inflation data then you will discover that inflation in Eurozone is much higher than you get to read from the official statistics. Add to this the negative real salary growth and you kind of get the feeling that consumers are not feeling very optimistic about the future. They know that prices will tend to move higher whereas their salaries have not been raised that much. So, consumers look to cut back on their spending. The want to save.

The reason why real inflation is high is due to the aggressive liquidity boosts coupled with ZIRP (NIRP in Eurozone) that most G7 central banks have engaged with since 2008. This liquidity has found its way to stock market, commodities market and in turn to products in our refrigirators. It has paralyzed the consumer as this liquidity boost has not boosted their real incomes.

Will the purchasing of ABS work?

Unfortunately, we think that it will not work because the Eurozone companies do not require additional financing at circumstances which we have explained. The companies need the end demand to pick up. But for that we need a stable socio-economic and political situation in Eurozone and around.

Post 2008 crisis a lot of issues that needed to be resolved are still unsolved. Some of these issues are here:


  • Most Eurozone governments still run large budget deficits as limited efforts have been taken to improve government efficencies and budget structures
  • Eurozone debt/GDP figures haven't improved - they have become worse which has worsened also future borrowing capacity of most countries
  • Banks haven't been recapitalized and zombie banks still exist


Russian sanctions

Recent Russian sanctions to ban imports of certain agricultural products from European Union will have a severe impact on European agricultural industry. For the European consumers it will at first be quite pleasant - products unsold to Russia will oversupply the local market and will lower the food prices. It will generate a certain feeling of relief among working class members of the society which make up majority of the population.

The lower food prices and overcapacity will ultimately start bankrupting European agricultural and food processing industry and will drastically lower supply. Once the reduction in supply will take its course we will have a massive inflationary pressure which will at the same time lower the purchasing power of majority of Europeans. Lower purchasing power will ultimately start to affect other industries and Europe will fall into another severe economic crisis.

We hope that these scenarios will not take place although we admit that this would be a bit naive.

At this point Putin holds all the cards, this will become more obvious as winter nears and events unfold.  It seems both Russia and many of the separatist in Eastern Ukraine would support federalization. Surely, no reason exist for Kiev to be opposed other than a loss of power. A more federalized government is also the most plausible way of keeping Ukraine intact.

Support for sanctions is mixed in Europe as some countries fear Russia and have an ax to grind with Putin while others wish to move forward. Saber rattling has only lead to death and destruction.  As I see it little good will come from further bloodshed and it is time for the West to stop sending money to Kiev so they can ramp up the violence and continue the civil war.
