Plane downed by Ukraine act of terrorism

A military transport plane has crashed in the Belgorod region of Russia, with Moscow saying 65 prisoners of war and nine others were on board and accusing Ukraine of shooting it down

    New statement from Ukraine does not rule out shooting down plane
Ukraine's military intelligence service has just issued a statement, which says it has no reliable information about who was on board the crashed plane.

Ukraine says it carried out all agreements for a prisoner exchange due to happen today, the statement confirms. But it says it was up to Russia to ensure the safety of our defenders under the agreements that had been reached

The statement also says that Kyiv had not been asked to ensure the "safety of airspace near the city of Belgorod" at the agreed time - stating this was "something that had happened on numerous occasions before" in previous swaps.

So - although it doesn't accept responsibility for the crash - this could be seen as Ukraine accepting it was possible that the plane was downed by a Ukrainian missile.

For their part, Russia suggested on Wednesday that Ukraine had been provided with all the details of the prisoner exchange as UKRAINE ADMITS to expecting a prisoner exchange to happen today,

Aircraft with Ukrainian Prisoners Shot Down

On Wednesday, a Russian Il-76 transport aircraft with 65 Ukrainian prisoners on board crashed in the Belgorod region

"At about 11:00 Moscow time, an IL-76 plane crashed in Belgorod during a scheduled flight. There were 65 captured servicemen of the Ukraine armed forces on board.".

Others onboard included six aircraft crew members and three accompanying persons. A Russian air forces commission flew to the crash site to establish the cause of the disaster.

The Russian State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said he believes the Ukrainian military shot down the plane.

He instructed lawmakers to prepare an appeal to the U.S. Congress and Germany's Bundestag in connection with the plane crash to show foreign governments how Kiev is using their military assistance.

"There is a proposal to investigate what missiles and launchers were used. Let's prepare an appeal to the U.S. Congress and the German Bundestag so that lawmakers can finally see who they are funding and helping," Volodin said.

"They shot their own soldiers in the air. Their mothers, wives and children were waiting. The pilots of our military transport aircraft, who were carrying out a humanitarian mission, were shot at...with U.S. and German missiles," he added.

Reduced US aid to Ukraine

Concerned about the potential decrease in US aid, President Zelensky urges Germany to use its economic influence to rally EU partners for increased support to Kiev in its fight against Russia

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky cautioned on Sunday that a reduction in aid from the United States to Kiev would convey a "negative message", highlighting the challenges faced by US President Joe Biden amid a Republican blockade on additional support.

Keeping in mind the possibility of reduced US aid, Zelensky called on Germany to leverage its economic influence to encourage EU partners to provide more support to Kiev in its struggle against Russia.

In response to a question about whether he expected Berlin to assume a greater role in the event of reduced assistance from the United States, he remarked, "Germany can manage to consolidate the EU."

"Many countries have important economic relationships with Germany and their economy is dependent on Germany's decisions because Germany has a strong economy," he said.

In a different interview on Wednesday, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on European nations to increase their commitments to provide weapons to Ukraine, indicating the possibility that assistance from the US, the largest contributor, might cease.

"Europe must do more to support Ukraine in the defence of its own country," Scholz said, as quoted by Die Zeit weekly, stressing that the contributions that European nations have earmarked for 2024 so far are "not big enough."

The big picture

US aid has played a vital role in supporting the pro-Western nation in its war against Russia. However, opposition Republicans have spearheaded an effort to cease this support, insisting on withholding approval for new budget allocations unless Democrats consent to comprehensive and stringent measures addressing illegal migration.

Amid an election year where Joe Biden may face Donald Trump again, Zelensky has cautioned that a potential return of Trump to the White House could lead to a "different policy" regarding the ongoing war.

On this note, former US President Donald Trump on Sunday emphasized his doubts that NATO would come to the United States' rescue were it to come under attack in further criticism of the alliance that he has always shown disdain for.

Trump is essentially casting doubt on Article 5 of the NATO Charter, which stipulates collective defense in the event of an armed attack on a member state, saying he did not think the alliance would commit and help his country out.

"We're paying for NATO, and we don't get so much out of it. If we ever needed their help, let's say we were attacked, I don't believe they'd be there. I know the people," he said, addressing a large crowd of supporters.

The former US President has long been at odds with NATO, going as far as calling it "obsolete" during his first year in office and criticizing key US-allied NATO members, particularly Germany, for not spending more on defense. According to former National Security Advisor John Bolton, the US was ready to exit the alliance in 2018.

As part of his rant about NATO, Trump went on to criticize US President Joe Biden's decision to provide military aid to Ukraine in the ongoing war. "We don't have ammunition for ourselves, [yet] we're giving away so much," he argued.

He went on to pledge that he would put an end to the ongoing Ukraine war within "24 hours" were he to be re-elected, which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelesnky dismissed earlier as unrealistic.

Trump is echoing a similar statement he made last year when he claimed that he could have influenced a cessation of the war in Ukraine within 24 hours by negotiation if he were still president, adding that the war would not have happened if he were still in his position.

This comes at a time when Trump is leading the Republican polls, making recent victories in the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, which gave him momentum against his only remaining foe, former US envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, who is still in the race after Florida Governor Ron DeSantis withdrew from it last week.

ICJ does not recognize Russia as aggressor state

The International Court of Justice dismissed Ukraine's demand to designate Russia as an aggressor state

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) rejected Kiev's claim to recognize Russia as an "aggressor state" and the Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) and Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) as "terrorist organizations."

Earlier in the day, the ICJ rejected most of the claims raised by Ukraine against Russia under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in Crimea, Court President Joan Donoghue said.

"The International Court of Justice did not follow Kiev's whim and refused to recognize Russia as an 'aggressor state.' The court also rejected Ukrainian insinuations that the DPR and LPR are allegedly 'terrorist organizations,'" the statement said.

The ministry's statement added that Kiev aimed to use the court claim to support its demands for the transfer of Russian assets frozen in the West and the introduction of international restrictions against Russia.

Ukraine filed the lawsuit with the ICJ in 2017, accusing Russia of violating international conventions on anti-terrorism and racial discrimination over actions in the Donbass and Crimea.

What did the court conclude?

The ICJ determined that "Russia violated the anti-discrimination treaty" through its implementation of the educational system in Crimea post-2014, specifically regarding school education in the Ukrainian language. The court dismissed all other allegations.

Concerning the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, the court concluded that Russia neglected to implement measures for investigating facts related to individuals who were purportedly involved in an offense. The court rejected all other contentions put forth by Ukraine under this treaty.

The Hague-based court also determined that Russia had diligently met its responsibilities to collaborate in the efforts against terrorism financing. This included fulfilling obligations to identify and obstruct funds utilized for financing terrorism.

Moreover, the ICJ opted not to pass judgment on Kiev's allegations regarding Russia being responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in 2014.

Patriot Missile Fragments at Il-76 Crash Site

On Thursday, Russian investigators said that fragments of the MIM-104A anti-aircraft guided missile of the U.S. Patriot air defense system were detected at the crash site of the Il-76 transport aircraft

"According to the conclusions made during the investigation, fragments seized from the crash site... are design elements of the MIM-104A anti-aircraft guided missile of the U.S. Patriot complex," the investigative committee said.

A total of 116 fragments of two anti-aircraft missiles with inscriptions in English were found near the crash site of the plane. The probe also discovered at the crash site body fragments and some partially preserved personal documents.

"Markings found on the seized fragments include: “Raytheon”, “Confidential classified by Patriot Security Classification Guide Dated: 9/22/83," Sputnik reported.

"It was established that traces of the explosive hexogen with impurities of up to 10 percent octogen were found in washouts from the objects, which is typical for foreign-made explosives," it added.

Genetic tests have confirmed that the body fragments belonged to the 65 Ukrainian military personnel, six crew members, and three military police officers who died as a result of the crash.

On Thursday, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow has openly called for an international investigation into the incident. However, the West seems to be disinterested.

The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed on Jan. 24 that Ukraine had launched two missiles at a Russian Il-76 military transport aircraft, killing all 74 people on board.

Ukrainian shelling of a popular bakery

Russian authorities on Saturday announced that a Ukrainian terror attack on the city of Lysychansk resulted in the killing of at least 11 individuals

As search and rescue operations are ongoing, there is the possibility of finding more people that are trapped under the rubble, they added.

According to the Russian Investigative Committee, a HIMARS rocket system provided by the US appears to have been used to launch the attack.

When the structure fell, roughly forty persons were buried beneath the rubble.

Twenty more persons are thought to remain under the debris, in addition to the at least twelve hospitalized. The local emergency authorities stated that the rescue effort would go on all night.

The Ukrainian shelling targeted a building housing a popular bakery.

"Unfortunately, 11 people died," Russia's emergency situations ministry said on Telegram.

Rescuers managed to save 10 people and hand them over to doctors, the ministry added, noting that rescue operations will continue overnight.

Governor of Lugansk Leonid Pasechnik earlier confirmed that Kiev shelled a bakery that was known to bake fresh bread on weekends.

    — DD Geopolitics (@DD_Geopolitics) February 3, 2024
Authorities reported that a man in "serious condition" with injuries was transported to a hospital in the city of Lugansk, and three other injured individuals were set to be taken there as well.

Pasechnik mentioned that police and emergency services are using special equipment in an effort to rescue the victims.

Russian MFA Accuses Ukraine of ‘Terrorism’ for striking bakery

The Ukrainian government, led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, was accused by the Russian Foreign Ministry of terrorism on Saturday following an attack by the Ukrainian military on a crowded bakery in Lysychansk that resulted in the deaths of at least eleven civilians.

"Russia will inform international organizations about the latest act of terrorism by Zelenskyy’s gang. We expect the relevant international organizations to issue a swift and firm rebuke for Kiev’s crime," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.

Terror attacks amplified

As Ukraine struggled to achieve its counter-offensive objectives and encountered diminishing Western support in recent months, the operations conducted by Kiev seem to shift more closely to acts of terrorism.

On January 25, Ukraine shot down a Russian military transport plane that was carrying 65 captured Ukrainian soldiers to a prisoner exchange. Russia labeled the incident as a barbaric act of terrorism, resulting in the death of a total of 74 people.

Just four days earlier, a Ukrainian shelling in a busy market in Donetsk resulted in the deaths of 25 civilians, including two children.

On December 30, 2023, Ukraine executed an indiscriminate strike on the Russian city of Belgorod, utilizing cluster-mounted Vilkha missiles and shells from a Czech-made RM-70 Vampire multiple-launch rocket system.

The attack resulted in the deaths of 12 adults and two children, with 108 others wounded.

Peaceful Solution to Ukraine

On Thursday night, former FOX host Tucker Carlson published a two-hour interview with President Vladimir Putin in which the Russian leader addressed issues related to the Ukrainian conflict, the expansion of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization ( NATO), and the explosion of the Nord Stream pipeline.

NATO expansion

Putin recounted the main moments of NATO's expansion through the countries of Eastern Europe. In 2008, the U.S.-controlled military alliance began a more aggressive approach to Ukraine, promising that the country could be admitted to the group.

This circumstance began to gradually change Russia's relations with Ukraine, which had developed with a positive attitude until that moment.

"In 2008 they opened the doors of NATO to Ukraine. In 2014 they carried out a coup d'état and began to persecute those who did not recognize the coup d'état," Putin said.

He also explained that the 2014 coup in Ukraine created an imminent threat, which forced Russia to take Crimea under its protection

The Ukrainian conflict

"We repeatedly, repeatedly offered to seek a solution to the problems that arose in Ukraine after the coup in 2014 by peaceful means. But no one listened to us," Putin stressed.

"And what's more, the Ukrainian leadership, which was under full control of the U.S., suddenly declared that it would not fulfill the Minsk agreements, they did not like anything there, and continued military activity in this territory," he added.

Meanwhile, the development of this territory by NATO military structures took place under the guise of various training and retraining centers for personnel, the Russian President said, adding that they had actually built bases there.

He recalled that the Ukrainian authorities adopted laws that restricted the rights of Russians. "In Ukraine, they declared that Russians are -- they passed a law -- a non-titular nation, and at the same time they adopted laws that restrict the rights of non-titular nations."

"This all together caused the decision to end the war that was started by neo-Nazis in Ukraine in 2014 by armed means," Putin said.

Nord Stream explosion

When asked about who were the authors of the explosion of the Nord Stream gas pipelines, the Russian leader attributed what happened to the United States, a country that was interested in sabotaging that energy project and that had the means to do so.

"In this case, we must look not only for someone who is interested, but also for someone who can do it. Many might be interested but not everyone can reach the bottom of the Baltic Sea and carry out this explosion," Putin said.

Carlson then asked why Russia does not present the evidence obtained about sabotage in the gas pipelines to win this propaganda war.

Putin indicated that it is difficult to win in the dispute over the meaning of events given that the United States "controls all the media in the world and many in Europe."

Regarding Germany's silence about NATO's involvement in the Nord Stream explosion, Putin noted that the German authorities "are not guided by national interests, but by the interests of the collective West. Otherwise, it is difficult to explain the logic of their actions or inaction."

Ukraine violates international law, CWC

It is not surprising that now when the Ukrainian military is being trained under the guidance of US military instructors, cases of the use of chemical substances have emerged

Over the past decade, the number of local conflicts and the range of weapons have significantly increased. The diversity of UAVs has become a distinctive feature of the current military conflicts. This type of warfare is most heavily used in Ukraine. The use of UAV tactics in combination with conventional arms, including prohibited, reached its peak.

A striking example of this war crime is the numerous reports of the use of chemical agents by the Kiev regime from the very beginning of the conflict. Numerous evidences are documented in the material. At the same time, representatives of various international organizations are so unwilling to pay attention to the issue and are actually trying to justify the war crimes committed by the Ukrainian side.

Usage of chloropicrin

There is a lot of evidence of chemical weapons usage by the Ukrainian forces, and it has been documented by officials, investigative authorities, and war correspondents.

For example, in May 2022, during a regular briefing of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, Chief of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Protection Troops of the Russian Armed Forces, announced the discovery of three UAVs equipped with containers and hardware for spraying agents in the Kherson region near Kakhovka.

It is also known that the Ukrainian government sent a request to the Turkish company Baykar, specifying the possibility of setting up special equipment for spraying chemicals. Such devices can be applied not only in the agricultural sector but for military purposes.

In November 2022, the media reported on the usage of chloropicrin by the Ukrainian Army. Journalists also discovered that the bodies of Ukrainian UAVs were additionally treated with potassium cyanide to cause more damage.

Then, in May 2023, Telegram channels published evidence of TEREN-6 gas grenade usage dropped from drones on Russian positions. At the time, a video published by the Ukrainian source Supernova+ was actively circulated in the media. The authors of the video shamelessly boasted about "the use of chemical weapons by the Ukrainian armed forces against the Moscow boys" in Pervomayskoye in the Donetsk region.

The presence of this kind of ammunition was proved by the Izvestia news agency. A journalist, while inspecting former Ukrainian positions in the Donetsk region, detected the same TEREN-6 gas grenades, whose plastic casing was easily refitted with other chemicals.

In June 2023, Russian war correspondent Matyushin reported on the use of chloropicrin by the Ukrainian military in the Zaporizhzhia area. In addition, in September 2023, a video from a forest zone near Horlivka was published. The footage shows a certain aerosol cloud of yellowish color, literally enveloping the trees. The operator reports that the enemy has covered the positions with an unknown substance that greatly impairs visibility and makes breathing difficult.

The active use of chloropicrin by the Ukrainian side was repeatedly reported by the advisor to the head of the DPR, Yan Gagin. According to him, the AFU fighters receive orders on the use of this type of ammunition from NATO instructors. As a result, the Russian servicemen were experiencing attacks of suffocation, nausea, lacrimation, and other symptoms.

Is using tear gas a crime?

Although tear gas is not lethal in its effect, it is still a chemical weapon and its use in combat is illegal. However, the US army possesses the greatest experience in its use during the conflict in South Vietnam.

This rule has been in effect since 1993. It was then that the lengthy debate within the framework of the Chemical Weapons Convention allowed the international community to agree on the inclusion of chloropicrin in the list of banned substances, along with phosgene and cyanogen chloride.

It is not surprising that now when the Ukrainian military is being trained under the guidance of US military instructors, cases of the use of chemical substances have emerged.

Chemical weapons in the hands of foreign mercenaries

Information on Ukraine's use of chemical weapons elements is also confirmed by foreign mercenaries. In January 2023, a video of the AFU serviceman and blogger Robert Brovdi, better known as Madyar, who is the founder of the AFU aerial reconnaissance unit Madyar Birds ,appeared on Ukrainian Telegram channels.

Video footage shows Ukrainian servicemen preparing small drones that are designed to drop some kind of red plastic containers. The containers are homemade cylinders of 700 grams.

The fuse mounted on the ammunition also attracts attention. It is completely different from the standard incandescent mechanism designed for detonation, and more resembles devices for mixing or spraying chemicals.

Another indirect sign confirming the aerosol nature of the contents is that the grenades are stored in the refrigerator. Chemical munitions that are vulnerable to thermal expansion and breach of the tightness of the shell require such treatment.

Moreover, Russian troops who participated in clashes around Soledar reported on the use of certain aerosol products by the AFU that caused burns to the upper respiratory tracts.

Transportation of chemical weapons from Germany

So, how do such substances and munitions get to Ukraine? In theory, Ukraine should not have its stockpiles of chemical weapons. Meanwhile, there is a fact of delivering chemical weapons components to Ukraine from abroad. In October 2023, the Main Directorate of Intelligence of Ukraine alongside the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) purchased several barrels of a substance called triethanolamine through the company "Realab", which is one of the largest Ukrainian distributors of chemical reagents.

The above-mentioned substance, despite its widespread use in industry, is listed in Schedule No. 3 of the Annex to the Chemical Weapons Convention. Triethanolamine is a precursor for the synthesis of the skin-explosive agent nitrogen mustard gas.

Later, in December 2023, some details of the SSU operation were outlined by General Kirillov. He noted that those chemicals can be used by the SSU to produce a chemical warfare agent to carry out a provocation to slow down the Russian offensive.

Russian military personnel have repeatedly witnessed the use of chemical weapons by the Ukrainian army. But why should Ukraine admit to violating the International Armaments Treaty? After all, by announcing the forthcoming action, Kiev has declared to the world that it does not adhere to the prohibitions of the CWC. Moreover, on the issue of the use of chemical weapons by Moscow, Kiev has strong support from its Western patrons. Was this just a test to assess the effectiveness of using toxic or nerve agents on the battlefield?

It is highly likely that this approach is related to probing the ground as to whether the international community will condemn Ukraine for violating the CWC.

On the other hand, if the international community "turns a blind eye" to AFU actions in violation of the CWC, this indicates tacit approval of the use of chemical munitions, and Ukraine will further continue to violate the laws of warfare and international conventions. At the same time, European countries will continue to supply Kiev with various chemical precursors for the production of dangerous substances, ignoring the evidence base collected by the Russian side, as was the case in Syria.

However, Ukraine is unlikely to stop. The hyped counter-offensive has finally collapsed, some states intend to stop arms supplies, a new political crisis is growing in the US, and a new Maidan is brewing because of Zaluzhny's possible resignation. In these circumstances, the use of chemical weapon elements is a logical move, especially against the background of dubious "successes on the battlefield."

How the CIA secretly helps Ukraine

The CIA and other US intelligence organizations gather intelligence for targeted missile attacks, monitor Russian army movements, and assist espionage networks

    For more than a decade, the United States has maintained a secret intelligence collaboration with Ukraine, which is now essential to both nations' efforts to confront Russia, The New York Times reported.

    Adam Entous and Michael Schwirtz held interviews with numerous sources from Ukraine, Europe, and the US, which led them to discover that the CIA funds and equips hidden bases where Ukrainian troops keep tabs on Russian spy satellites and listen in on discussions between Russian commanders.
The intelligence collaboration between Washington and Kiev is critical to Ukraine's capacity to fight, the authors note. The CIA and other US American intelligence organizations gather intelligence for targeted missile attacks, monitor Russian army movements, and assist espionage networks.

However, this cooperation was not formed during the war, and not only Ukraine benefited from it.

The listening station in a dense Ukrainian forest is part of a CIA-supported network of spy sites built over the last eight years, which includes 12 covert outposts near the Russian border.

Around 2016, the CIA started training an elite Ukrainian commando squad known as Unit 2245, which captured Russian drones and communications equipment so that CIA experts could reverse-engineer them and break Moscow's encryption protocols. (One officer in the regiment was Kyrylo Budanov, who is now the general.)

The CIA also assisted in the training of a new generation of Ukrainian spies who worked in Russia, Europe, Cuba, and other Russian-controlled areas.

The relationship is so strong that CIA officials stayed in a distant location in western Ukraine when the Biden administration evacuated US soldiers in the weeks leading up to the war in February 2022. During the war, the officers conveyed important intelligence, such as where Russia planned to strike and which weapons systems they would deploy.

Ivan Bakanov, who was then head of Ukraine’s domestic intelligence agency, the SBU, expressed that “without them, there would have been no way for us to resist the Russians, or to beat them."

Secret CIA training program helped Ukraine prepare for Russia special op.

In March 2022, Yahoo News reported that a secret CIA-run training program in Ukraine helped Kiev prepare for Russia's special military operation in the country

    The US Central Intelligence Agency's program kicked off in 2014 when the illegal coup took place leading to conflict in Donbass, but the Biden administration pulled out all its CIA personnel from Ukraine before Russia started its military operation in the country, the report added, citing former officials
Washington ran its covert CIA training program from Ukraine's eastern frontlines, and it was made possible through previously existing assets for the agency, which made them illegible to stay without new legal determination, according to Yahoo News.

The report also revealed that the CIA sent a very small number of its paramilitary officers, which did not exceed a dozen, to eastern Ukraine as part of its training program.

The CIA's personnel taught the Ukrainians certain sniper techniques, how to use Javelin anti-tank missiles, means of evading digital tracking used by Moscow to locate troops, and how to use covert communication tools, to name a few, the report revealed.
