Western observers find no evidence of military build-up on Russia’s border with Ukraine
April 1, 2014
NATO continues to insist Russia is massing troops on the border of Ukraine despite a lack of evidence. The alliance will now use the phantom military build-up to increase its presence in Eastern Europe.CNN, a documented propaganda asset of the Army’s Fourth Psychological Operations Group, insists Russia’s phantom troops will invade this weekend.
“Unfortunately, I cannot confirm that Russia is withdrawing its troops. This is not what we are seeing,” said NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen as 28 alliance members convened in Brussels.
Reuters reports today:
Diplomats said the ministers would consider options ranging from stepped-up military exercises and sending more forces to eastern member states to the permanent basing of alliance forces in those countries – a step Moscow would view as provocative.
The NATO boss said the alliance may soon station forces permanently in the former Soviet Baltic states. “We are now considering all options to enhance our collective defense, including… further development of our defense plans, enhanced exercises and also appropriate deployments,” Rasmussen said.
Rasmussen said last week the phantom Russian threat is a “game-changer” for the alliance. “We live in a different world than we did less than a month ago,” he said. “I am the first to stress that Europe must do more.”
The call for militarization along Russia’s western border and an escalation of the conflict was hailed by Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski. He said he would welcome “some more prominent NATO presence in Poland.”
A vote by the people of Crimea to secede from Ukraine after a State Department backed coup placed ultra-nationalists in power in Kyiv provided NATO with a pretext for increased military air patrols over the Baltic states and conduct training exercises with the Polish air force.
The United States and Britain have used the threat of a “resurgent Russia” to call for more military spending by European Union member states, many plagued by serious economic ills. “Russia is acting much more like an adversary than a partner,” declared Philip M. Breedlove, the American commander of NATO, during a meeting in Brussels of the globalist German Marshall Fund.
“It’s still very difficult for governments to sell the idea that social spending on health and education is less important than defense, especially in Western Europe,” explained Xenia Dormandy, a former American diplomat at Chatham House. NATO, the United States, and the EU have escalated their rhetoric to exaggerate the Russian threat.
The Chatham House is a British think tank operating like the Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institute in the United States. Corporate members include Goldman Sachs International, Morgan Stanley, Lockheed Martin, Bloomberg, GlaxoSmithKline, Coca-Cola, and other transnational giants and banker operations.
Multiple Sources Confirm No Troop Build-up On Border
On Sunday Infowars.com reported that the Pentagon, NBC News and Russian media have all confirmed Russia is not massing troops on the border of Ukraine. NATO made the claim after junta ambassador to the U.S. Olexander Motsyk said there were about 100,000 troops amassed at the Ukraine border.
“Western observers have found no evidence of a military build-up along Russia’s border with Ukraine, the Russian foreign ministry said on its website Friday,” The Wall Street Journal reported last week. “The statement from Russia’s foreign ministry referred to inspections by Ukrainian and Western observers as well as survey flights by German and U.S. planes over the border territory, all of which, it said, found no evidence of military escalation.”
