Russian Military Planes Were Ordered to Provoke Ukraine

Russian Military Planes Were Ordered to Provoke Ukraine

fd140c1-samo300Russian military pilots were ordered by their authorities to penetrate the airspace of Ukraine on purpose. The information comes from German and US intelligence data as reported by German media including Deutsche Welle. This is proven by radiograms waylaid by NSA USA, Deutsche Welle reports, linking to Bild am Sonntag and the information by the intelligence service of Germany from April 29.

The intelligence report bases its conclusions on Russian military radio communiques that were intercepted, deciphered and given to German colleagues by the National Security Agency (NSA) of the USA. According to the decoded material, Russian military pilots received orders from their authorities to penetrate the airspace of Ukraine on purpose.

The Pentagon had previously accused Russia of similar provocations, but Moscow did not respond to the accusations. Moreover, Russian Federation President Volodymyr Putin, replying to demands by the USA and other countries to withdraw RF troops from the borders with Ukraine, claimed that Russia’s military had returned to permanent training bases. However, the latest photographs released by the Pentagon prove the opposite – the troops did not only not leave the border, but on the contrary, increased in number.
