Ukraine Admits: ‘There Are No Russian Troops Fighting Against Us’

21st Century Wire says…

The War of Lies rages on, as Washington looks for a hook with which to hang even more of its sanctions against Russia…

As 21WIRE reported previously, the West has been repeatedly accusing Russia of positioning its military assets in the Ukraine, even though those accusations have no basis in reality.

As part of the West’s PR and propaganda strategy, Washington, EU and Kiev have carefully stopped short of labeling the non-event as an invasion, instead calling it “Russian aggression”, or a “cross-border incursion” to aid ‘separatists’, with the all-important caveat of “unconfirmed report” (when you see US media use the term ‘unconfirmed’ this generally refers to an event that hasn’t actually happened yet).

Some desperate members of the US media seized upon the recent admission (see report below) that there are “No Russian Troops Fighting in the Ukraine” made by the Ukrainian General Muzhenko, re-spinning it for US audiences as, “There are troops, he said no ‘Russian Units’ but what he really meant is that individual Russians soldiers are spread out throughout eastern Ukraine”.

Who’s managing this giant disinformation campaign coming out of Kiev? The CIA are currently in residence inside the top floor of the Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense building.

UKRAINE TROOPS DEMORALIZED: The West has pushed Kiev in a terrible quagmire they cannot win.

Eric Zuesse

Ukraine’s top general is contradicting allegations by the Obama Administration and by his own Ukrainian Government, by saying that no Russian troops are fighting against the Ukrainian Government’s forces in the formerly Ukrainian, but now separatist, area, where the Ukrainian civil war is being waged.

Here is a screen-print of a google-chrome auto-translation of that statement:

The Chief of Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces, General Viktor Muzhenko, is saying, in that news-report, which is dated on Thursday January 29th, that the only Russian citizens who are fighting in the contested region, are residents in that region, or of Ukraine, and also some Russian citizens (and this does not deny that perhaps some of other countries’ citizens are fighting there, inasmuch as American mercenaries have already been noted to have been participating on the Ukrainian Government’s side), who “are members of illegal armed groups,” meaning fighters who are not paid by any government, but instead are just “individual citizens” (as opposed to foreign-government-paid ones). General Muzhenko also says, emphatically, that the “Ukrainian army is not fighting with the regular units of the Russian army.”

In other words: He is explicitly and clearly denying the very basis for the EU’s sanctions against Russia, and for the U.S.’s sanctions against Russia: all of the sanctions against Russia are based on the falsehood that Ukraine is fighting against “the regular units of the Russian army” — i.e., against the Russian-Government-controlled-and-trained fighting forces.

The allegation to the effect that Ukraine is instead fighting against “regular units of the Russian army” is the allegation that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has invaded Ukraine, and it is the entire basis for the economic sanctions that are in force against Russia.

Those sanctions should therefore be immediately removed, with apology, and with compensation being paid to all individuals who have been suffering them; and it is therefore incumbent upon the Russian Government to pursue, through all legally available channels, restitution, plus damages, against the perpetrators of that dangerous fraud — and the news reports have already made clear precisely whom those persons are, who have asserted, as public officials, what can only be considered to be major libel…
