The Russian Embassy in the United States on its Facebook page commented on the statements of the White House and the Pentagon about the allegedly impending Russian invasion of Ukraine and the search for a pretext for this. The diplomatic mission noted that representatives of the US administration describe in detail the scenarios of possible provocations and their dates, but do not provide evidence.

The embassy emphasized that such a statement of the issue confirms the ongoing information pressure on Russia, and by the same methods: a sensation is “stuffed”, which is subsequently replicated by the Western media and turns into the main newsbreak.

For our part, we would like to warn our colleagues against such adventures. We declare once again: the unceasing accusations against us in the United States (both at the official level and in the media) are unfounded and cannot have any confirmation. We call on the United States to engage in substantive work to ensure security guarantees on the basis of the draft treaties proposed by the Russian side

White House statement

White House press secretary Jen Psaki, during a briefing without providing convincing evidence, called the timing of Russia's “invasion” of Ukraine. According to her, this will happen in mid-January-February, RIA Novosti reports.

The representative of the American administration expressed concern about what was happening and said that Moscow could fabricate a pretext for escalating the conflict.

We've seen this before, it takes us back to 2014, including sabotage and information operations to accuse Ukraine of preparing imminent attacks on Russian forces in eastern Ukraine and Russian military plans to launch such activity weeks before a military invasion could begin between mid-January and mid February

Psaki also said that the United States has data on provocations in Ukraine that Russia is preparing.

According to a White House spokesman, “Russian agents of influence” began to fabricate provocations in state media and the Internet in order to “justify Russian intervention and sow division in Ukraine.”

Pentagon Statement

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby, also without citing any evidence, said that Russia was looking for an excuse to invade Ukraine.

Without going into too much detail, we have information that shows that Russia is already actively working to create a pretext for a potential invasion, advance into Ukraine.

According to him, the US military department allegedly has information that Moscow has deployed a group to conduct an operation under a false flag. This was done in order to fabricate an attack on Russian speakers on Ukrainian territory in order to justify starting an open conflict.

The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense (GUR MO) of Ukraine also accused Russia of preparing provocations. In Kiev, they claim that the Russian special services are preparing provocations against their own servicemen in order to blame Ukraine for this.

Earlier, CNN reported that the United States had information that Russia had trained a special military group to carry out a special operation in Donbas under a false flag. The US presidential administration fears that this operation may precede a large-scale invasion of Ukraine, which could begin from mid-January to mid-February.

The Kremlin reacted to the publications. According to the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, allegations that Russia is preparing provocations in the Donbass are unfounded. He noted that earlier such publications had already appeared, but were not confirmed by anything.
