US Accuses Russia of Producing Phony ‘Attack’ Video to Justify Ukraine Invasion

This would be downright despicable.

Fears of a new world war are rising this week, as tensions between Russia and the global community continue to grow ever more prescient.

Russia’s amassing of enormous amounts of troops and military equipment on their border with Ukraine are at the center of the controversy, and Vladimir Putin’s belligerent and uncaring attitude toward it all seems to indicate precisely his wanton recklessness.

Just yesterday, in an attempt to dissuade any further escalation, the US announced that they would be sending thousands of additional troops to Europe to bolster the eastern flank of NATO.

Now, as Putin continues his flippant dismissals of the world’s accusations against him, intelligence sources within the United States are convicted that the Kremlin is preparing to release hoaxed video footage of phony attack by the Ukrainians, meant to serve as a prelude to war.

U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday they have evidence that Russia is planning to develop a propaganda video that will depict a fabricated attack on its troops that will then be used as a pretext to invade Ukraine.

Senior administration officials speaking on the condition of anonymity said the video will likely depict graphic scenes of a staged false explosion with corpses, actors depicting mourners, and images of destroyed locations and military equipment.

The military equipment used in the fabricated attack will be made to look like it is Ukrainian or from allied nations, the officials said.

U.S. officials believe that Russia will release the fake video publicly to make it appear that Ukraine is a threat to Moscow’s security and to justify a military assault on its neighbor.

It was just a matter of weeks ago that the US suggested that Russia was preparing a “false flag” attack that would be used to incorrigibly justify an invasion, and this latest claim certainly appears to fit the sort of patterns of deceit that we’ve grown accustomed to from the Kremlin.

US Air Force Reveals Successful Hypersonic Missile Test

This could put the US back in the driver’s seat as far as missile tech goes.

Much like the global arms races that came before, the superpowers of the world are now looking to add a terrifying new doomsday machine to their arsenals in 2022:  Hypersonic missiles.

The missiles, which could be loaded with nuclear or traditional munitions, fly several times faster than the speed of sound and are said to be unstoppable by current defense technologies.  (The US has played coy with this claim, however, suggesting that our nation is well-defended against them).

Russia and China already possess such weapons.  North Korea keeps insisting that they do too, but the claim is dubious.

The United States, who previously admitted that they were a bit behind in developing these projectiles, made a major announcement on the subject this week.

UPI reports a B-52H Stratofortress aircraft successfully released a AGM-1831 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (ARRW) over the weekend that achieved speeds five times greater than the speed of sound.

The test was conducted somewhere off the coast of Southern California, it said.

“This was a major accomplishment by the ARRW team for the weapons enterprise and our Air Force,” Brig. Gen. Heath Collins, Air Force program executive officer for weapons, said in a statement.

“The team’s tenacity, expertise and commitment were key in overcoming the past year’s challenges to get us to the recent success.”

The news comes just months after China secretly test launched a hypersonic missile that circumnavigated the globe before hitting its target.
