Newsline: Russian Embassy in Washington mocks Pentagon warning of false flag

The Russian Embassy in the U.S. took to social media late Thursday to mock Washington for engaging “in conspiracy theories” after the Pentagon warned of a possible false flag attack along eastern Ukraine’s border to justify a conflict. “We call on Washington to abandon propaganda and go in for serious work to strengthen European security,” the embassy said. The embassy went on to say that it is “not surprised by the new ‘creative’ scenario outlined by @StateDeptSpox & PentagonPresSec” and called it a typical move by the U.S. (https://www.foxnews.com/live-news/russia-ukraine) The statement pointed to 2003, when Colin Powell, who was secretary of state at the time, made an appearance at the United Nations and held up a white vial that represented Saddam Hussein’s chemical weapons. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said earlier in the day that U.S. officials believe Russia is planning to “stage a fake attack by Ukrainian military or intelligence forces against Russian sovereign territory or against Russian-speaking people to therefore justify their action as part of this fake attack.”
