Given how obsessed Biden is with alleged disinformation, it’s awfully surprising that he seems fairly nonplussed by the degree of disinformation emanating from Ukraine.
In a rather disturbing development, Ukraine has just been busted for potentially engaging in the same behavior that has long clouded the reputation of Russia.
More accurately, the nation just might have been busted in spreading disinformation. Judging from the fact that Ukraine declared it had killed a Russian commander who happened to show up on Russian TV shortly after his “death” at hands of Ukrainian forces.
As reported by Newsmax, a rather obvious disconnect emerged between official Ukrainian statements and official Russian footage.
“Viktor Sokolov, the commander of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet and one of Russia’s most senior navy officers, was shown on Tuesday attending a video conference, a day after Ukrainian special forces said they had killed him.
In video and photographs released by the Russian defense ministry, Sokolov was shown apparently taking part in a video conference with Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and other top admirals and army chiefs … The video was shown on Russian state television,” the outlet reported.
Either Ukraine mistakenly identified a commander eliminated by its forces, or the nation is feeding false information into the global dialogue in order to influence Biden into funneling endless billions into the nation’s war effort.
Problematically, this situation is not the first one in which Ukraine has been accused of less than accurate reporting, with some false reporting being noted just weeks into Russia’s invasion of the nation.
Which even the New York Times admitted.
“Six weeks after Russia launched its full-scale invasion, Ukraine sank the flagship of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, dealing a serious blow to the enemy navy, and, a Ukrainian official said, killing the ship’s captain …
The only problem was that the captain — or somebody who resembled him — later appeared in a video of survivors released by the Russian Navy. He had escaped his sinking ship, the Moskva, the video seemed to indicate,” the liberal outlet reported.
Well then. Seems that misidentification of victories against the Russians are routinely misidentified.
And one can only hope that the tens of billions being shoveled into Ukraine are not being routinely misspent.
On his part, the aforementioned Russian Defence Minister Shoigu, who appeared with the supposedly annihilated Sokolov, is less than impressed by Ukraine’s progress to date, which is rather evident in cool commentary that he recently issued.
“The Ukrainian armed forces are suffering serious losses along the entire front line,” Shoigu said, adding that the Ukrainian counter-offensive had so far produced no results … The United States and its allies continue to arm the armed forces of Ukraine, and the Kyiv regime throws untrained soldiers to their slaughter in senseless assaults,” Shoigu sniffed.
Untrained soldiers supported by billions Biden clawed out of American taxpayers’ dwindling paychecks … for a purpose that has yet to be clear to anyone, aside from the ultra-elitist viewpoint.
