Hodges said Russia’s “dirty bomb” is a “false flag operation”
No one in the West believes statements from the Kremlin anymore.
The former commander of US forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, believes that Russia came up with a fake about Ukraine’s “dirty bomb” to carry out a false flag operation.
Hodges spoke about this in a conversation with Russian opposition leader, lawyer Mark Feigin.
American general assured that no one in the West believes in the Russian fake about the “Ukrainian dirty bomb”
“No one believes what comes from the Kremlin anymore. The authority of the leaders inside has disappeared. Therefore, everyone immediately understands that this is an operation under a false flag to create conditions so that, perhaps, Russia could later blame Ukraine for this. Of course, zero common sense “do it to Ukraine. Nobody thinks about it as a real serious threat,” Hodges said.
The propagandists of the Russian Federation came up with a fake that Ukraine allegedly made a “dirty bomb”, is preparing to use it on its own territory and blames Moscow for this. This fake undertook to distribute the head of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Sergei Shoigu. So, he arranged a carousel of telephone conversations, calling his colleagues from a number of NATO countries.
However, the world does not believe in the “Ukrainian dirty bomb” fake. According to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the purpose of this lie is to escalate the conflict.
With statements about a “dirty bomb”, Moscow wants to put pressure on the West to put pressure on Ukraine to participate in negotiations with the Russian Federation. Aleksey Arestovich, the adviser to the President’s Office, is convinced of this.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky commented on Russia’s accusations with the following words: “If Russia calls and says that Ukraine is allegedly preparing something, it means one thing – Russia has already prepared all this.”
