Russian state television is now ridiculous and like a farce

Anyone who can watch Russia’s state TV monopoly will never know President Putin has massed his troops on the Ukrainian border, that Kremlin-controlled separatists bombard a kindergarten full of children and Russian forces are in position an attack against its besieged neighbor. On Kremlin-funded networks, the vision of events is not only reversed, but reversed. Panic experts blame the US and Ukraine for the increasedeclares that Russia does not want war and the stage ponders: “Why wouldn’t someone stop Biden?”

Chairman of the International Committee of the Russian State Duma, Leonid Slutsky accused that the President of the United States is painting “a completely reversed picture of the situation around Ukraine” and accused Joe Biden of misrepresenting “the readiness of the Russian Federation to invade Ukraine.” Slutsky added that “the President of the United States, speaking of “villain-Russia”, it is Russia that today accepts and saves civilians of the LPR and DPR, seems like a real figure from the [Lewis Carroll’s topsy-turvy children’s book] ‘Through the Looking Glass.’ “

And yet, it was Russia who turned white into black, and black into white. If it weren’t for so many lives hanging in the balance, you would describe current Russian state television as a dark comic book travesty.

Events are in fact unfolding exactly as the US President warned, based on information provided by US intelligence agencies. US Ambassador to the OSCE Michael Carpenter said that according to US assessments, Russia has deployed between 169,000 and 190,000 troops near the Ukrainian border – up from 100,000 at the end of January.

After massing troops and weapons on the Ukrainian border, Russia is ready to invade Ukraine. On Friday, the heads of the Kremlin-controlled self-proclaimed “republics” in Eastern Ukraine (LPR and DPR) began unprovoked evacuations of civilians to Russia, followed by Suspicious explosions in the area. Russian state media immediately – and unfoundedly – blamed the Ukrainian military. State TV channel Rossiya-24 report: “Let’s deal with the emergency that happened a few minutes ago.” Reporters at the scene said: “Everyone is trying to find out what happened here.” The headline reads: “Ukrainian troops attack gas pipeline in Luhansk.”

What makes this even more bizarre is that the US has openly predicted these very tactics.

True to the warnings of the US authorities, the Russian authorities now seem ready for the re-invasion of Ukraine under false rumors. One of the main premises heavily advertised by the Kremlin and Russia’s state media is the Ukrainian military’s baseless accusations of “genocide” of Russian-speaking people. Back in December 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin declare: “What’s happening in Donbas as we know it and see it very clearly, it’s very reminiscent of genocide.” By February, state media and Russian officials had published their full accusations of “genocide” in Ukraine.

According to a report via The Wall Street JournalRussian officials circulated a document at a United Nations Security Council meeting on Thursday accusing the Ukrainian government of “the genocide of Russian speakers in the Donbas.”

Addressing the meeting of the United Nations Security Council, Foreign Minister Antony Blinken speak that according to information obtained by US intelligence agencies, Russia is planning to use a fake flag attack in eastern Ukraine, followed by baseless accusations of “genocide” in the area. area. Blinken points out: “Russia could describe this event as an ethnic cleansing or a genocide, mocking a concept that we in this room do not despise, nor do I take lightly, based on my family history.”

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s rejection of Moscow’s claim of “genocide” in the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine has angered Russian officials. On Saturday, the Russian Foreign Ministry get scolded Scholz and Germany: “Not for German leaders to laugh at genocide issues. This is unacceptable, given Germany’s historical experience in matters of mass murder and the spread of misguided ideology. ” Russian state television goes even further, with the programming of 60 minutes Olga Skabeeva scoffed positive: “The Germans have different ideas about genocide. They’ll have to start burning people in the furnace, and maybe then they’ll admit: ‘Yes, that’s genocide.’

Russian state media are spreading claims about Ukraine allegedly shelling parts of the Donbas and on Saturday accused that the Ukrainians shelled Russia’s Rostov Region, located near the border with Ukraine. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny, denies any accusations by Russia, clarify part: “It should be noted that the artillery units of the Combined Forces are located in the retreat area at a distance of more than 21 km from the line of communication, which exceeds the maximum range of many rocket launchers” Hail “and 122 mm cannon in the service of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. “

Anticipating false accusations from the Kremlin, the Ukrainian authorities allowed access to a number of domestic and international journalists. NBC’s Richard Engel note: “The separatists claim the Ukrainians are attacking and besieging them. I’ve been going up and down those trenches over the past few months. There is no sign of an ongoing or imminent attack on Ukraine. None.” Meanwhile, state media news streams report claims that Ukraine is making a strong attack on the Donbas, allegations “The most intense air raids by the Ukrainian army in recent months.”

In a strange world of Russian state media, the United States – which has gone to great lengths to prevent escalation – is the real aggressor. Appears on 60 minutes on Friday, lawmaker Oleg Morozov lament: “I hope there are people next to Biden, next to Scholz, next to the British Prime Minister, who will look at the scenarios and say, ‘If the big war with Russia’s involvement starts, Europe will pay a heavy price. Think about it!’ That is my last hope, that the fear of this unpredictable situation will stop these hotheads.”

Igor Korotchenko, member of the Council of Public Affairs of the Ministry of Defense of Russia and editor-in-chief of Defense magazine, shout: “America wants this war. Their main goal is to take over Europe’s energy market. Biden may care less about the victims, and their suffering, about Europe’s losses. He is realizing his plans to establish America.” Summarizing the grotesque new theme in the Kremlin’s war for truth, Korotchenko writes play insist to European leaders: “Stop Zelensky! Stop Biden! ” Russian state television is now ridiculous and like a farce
