Dmitry Kuleba, Ukraine’s foreign minister who has been one of the most outspoken advocates of more weapons and war, was caught in a prank Zoom video admitting to being behind attacks on civilian infrastructure in Crimea and Belgorod.
Reports said Kuleba was evidently under the impression that he was talking to a former American ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul, who himself has been a major supporter of U.S. intervention.
“Well, if you were to ask me who blows up things in Crimea or Belgorod, then speaking privately, as much privacy we can have in a Zoom call, I’d tell you, yes, that was us,” Kuleba said.
Kuleba was caught by the same Russian pranksters who got George W. Bush, the former president, to believe he was on a Zoom chat with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. (See “VIDEO SHOWS KILLER GEORGE BUSH TELLING ‘ZELENSKY’ HIS JOB IS MASS MURDER.”)
The Trends Journal reported extensively last week on the bombing of the bridge and how the White House gave Ukraine a wink and a nod before the incident. (See “WHITE HOUSE GAVE PUBLIC GREEN LIGHT TO UKRAINE TO BOMB CRIMEA BRIDGE, DID BRITIAN PLOT ATTACK?”)
The Western media embraced the bridge bombing as though it was another major setback for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who days later approved airstrikes in about a dozen Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv.
Russia immediately blamed Ukraine for the explosion. The video seemed to have been recorded sometime in September, weeks before the bridge attack. Maria Zakharova, the Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman, said Kuleba essentially admitted to state-sponsored terrorism.
Ukraine sees Crimea and the bridge as legitimate targets because Russia uses these areas to store ammo and other military equipment.
TRENDPOST: Gerald Celente has long said that we are led by mentally deranged people who want war with Russia. And they get away with it because our media has been neutered. Presstitutes don’t seek truth, they get paid to put out by their government whore masters and corporate pimps… they screw for those in power. That’s why the damning G.W. Bush prank that exemplifies what a complete, arrogant, moronic little Georgie Bush is was never picked up in the mainstream media.
Agree or disagree with Vladimir Putin’s statements, in the Western media there is just one side to the Ukraine War: Russia aggression.
Totally ignored are the United States and NATO actions that were, to Russia, moves of aggression that we have greatly detailed in the Trends Journal, as well as the U.S. led coup of Ukraine’s ruling president in 2014. (See: “VICTORIA “FUCK THE EU” NULAND WHO SPEARHEADED OVERTHROW OF DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE IN 2014, STILL IN POWER.”)
TRENDPOST: Long forgotten was the U.S. and NATO’S pledge not to expand into Eastern Europe following the deal made during the 1990 negotiations between the West and the Soviet Union over German unification.
Therefore, in the view of Russia, it is taking self-defense actions to protect itself from NATO’s eastward march.
As detailed in The Los Angeles Times back in May of 2016, while the U.S. and NATO deny that no such agreement was struck, “…hundreds of memos, meeting minutes and transcripts from U.S. archives indicate otherwise.”
“According to transcripts of meetings in Moscow on Feb. 9, then-Secretary of State James Baker suggested that in exchange for cooperation with Germany, the U.S. could make ‘iron-clad guarantees’ that NATO would not expand ‘one inch eastward.’ Less than a week later, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to begin reunification talks.
“No formal deal was struck, but from all the evidence, the quid pro quo was clear: Gorbachev acceded to Germany’s western alignment and the U.S. would limit NATO’s expansion.”
TRENDPOST: In 1997, when President Bill Clinton was expanding NATO’s borders eastward, fifty American foreign policy leaders sent him a letter saying that it would be a policy error of historic proportions.
“We believe that NATO expansion will decrease allied security and unsettle European stability,” and “NATO expansion, which continues to be opposed across the entire political spectrum, will strengthen the nondemocratic opposition, undercut those who favor reform and cooperation with the West, bring the Russians to question the entire post-Cold War settlement.”
