Newsline: Russian Embassy Officials Refutes Allegations of ‘False-Flag’ Operation in Ukraine

Russian embassy has dismissed U.S. claims that it placed saboteurs in Ukraine to conduct a pretext for an invasion, following a week of failed diplomacy which saw no respite in tensions between Moscow and the West. The Russian embassy in Washington, D.C., refuted the claims made by the White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who has accused Russia of conducting a “false flag operation in eastern Ukraine.” In response, the Russian embassy said in a Facebook post that Russia was “against war,” and that “as usual, there is no evidence” behind the White House’s claims which it called part of “the ongoing information pressure on our country.” “The unceasing accusations against us in the United States (both at the official level and in the media) are unfounded and cannot have any evidence,” said the statement, also reported by Russian media. “We call on the United States to do substantive work to ensure security guarantees on the basis of the draft treaties proposed by the Russian side.” (https://www.newsweek.com/russian-refute-false-flag-operation-ukraine-jen-psaki-white-house-1669771) Psaki said on Friday that the Russian operatives were “trained in urban warfare and were using explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against Russia’s own proxy forces,” referring to Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine where a bloody war has been raging since 2014.
