Military movements in Bryansk oblast not far from Ukraine's border. Have not seen this level of mobilization from so many routes in a long time. Along with the increased disinformation and outright threats from Kremlin cronies
It has been ramping up over the past week with military moving in several routes in Russia and Belarus. Yet so many are downplaying and strangely trying to get into Putin's head and his intentions instead of looking at the what is happening on the ground
Meanwhile US asked Russia to explain their actions yesterday and Ryabkov basically answered with an FU today
Also Ukraine's pres Zelenskyy discussed the prospects of joining NATO and the Kremlin immediately came out with their usual threats

I am imploring Western media to cover the dangerous situation unfolding in Ukraine. All signs are pointing to Russia preparing an attack against Ukraine without provocation based on pre-medidated manufactured garbage, which they are good at creating.
Military movements have been increasing over past week via several routes. Russian media/politicians have been on a war footing over past 5 days stating they will respond to "provocations" by Ukraine. Overnight fabricated "provocations" appeared w media/social media pushing this
Have been monitoring this and in mid March it was becoming clearer that something is in the works. Haven't seen this type of activity in years. Military, disinformation, and fabricated attacks at such a high level

Oh no! Russian rag propaganda outlets and random social media accounts are reporting that Ukraine has launched an attack in Donbas. This is extremely worrying especially that their media has been laying the groundwork to a "response" if Ukraine starts "provocations" Complete lies
Will keep monitoring and update
There was a video of an attack put out from what may be 2015 and they are pushing it as an attack that is happening right now. Social media trolls are pushing this too

Anyone who wants to understand the Kremlin's tactics against US and the West can just look at what they are accusing us of. Now we have started a mental war 🙄 That would be Russia and old Soviet hybrid warfare tactics including hijacking and brainwashing minds w disinformation ImageImageImageImage
These tactics were actually developed by Primakov who used to head both KGB and foreign intelligence (First Chief Directorate) which became SVR
These tactics were used decades before the Soviet collapse. They are masters of disinformation and divisive issues to inject their disinfo

There are reports in Russian media that Google has crashed in US, Britain, France, and Russia
Thank you everyone for the responses of whether it's operational or not. Mine is working fine. Very interesting that they keep having reports on different platforms crashing. Last week they reported 3 platforms crashed. Wonder what is going on

Russia's FM Lavrov in an interview w Chinese media urged for moving Russia away from Western payment systems and find alternatives to the dollar due to sanctions risks from US. Good and sanctions should be increased and strategic to hit Putin's pocket via his money movers
Meanwhile he spent his interview kissing China's ass about working on everything jointly. Lavrov travels to China tomorrow

Moscow is in an obsessive panic between Biden calling Putin a killer (he is), upcoming sanctions, other things playing out behind the scenes. War criminal Amb Antonov issued a statement of irreparable damage. Here is a thought. Maybe Russia should stop their ongoing attacks on US
Even their propagandists in Russia and around the world are in insane overdrive of propaganda
