U.S. Pentagon claims Russia developed a False Flag operation

The UnitedStates Pentagon has accused Russia of “working actively to create a pretext for a potential invasion” by pre-positioning “a group of operatives to conduct what we call a false flag operation — an operation designed to look like an attack on them or their people or Russian speaking people in Ukraine, again, as an excuse to go in, ”per Pentagon spokesman John Kirby. He also stated that “influence actors are already started they’re already starting to fabricate Ukrainian provocations that in both state and social media, to try to justify, in advance, some sort of pretext for the incursion.”
