Blinken reveals how US believes Russia would invade Ukraine

Date:

In a terse U.N. Security Council meeting Thursday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned that Russia’s continued hostility toward Ukraine is a “moment of peril” and threatens global stability.

Blinken proceeded to explain that though U.S. intelligence does not yet know exactly how Russia will choose to launch its attack there are a series of steps the U.S. is anticipating. 

“Here’s what the world can expect to see unfold, in fact it’s unfolding right now today as Russia takes steps down the path to war,” he began. “First Russia plans to manufacture a pretext for its attack — this could be a violent event that Russia will bring on Ukraine or an outrageous accusation that Russia will level against the Ukrainian government.

“The secretary described how Russian state-controlled media has already begun spreading falsified claims, including stories of mass graves, to “lay the groundwork” for justification of a provoked attack by Russia.”

Second, in response to this manufactured provocation the highest levels of the Russian government may theatrically convene emergency meetings to address the so-called crisis,” he continued.

“Next the attack is planned to begin. Russian missiles and bombs will drop across Ukraine, communications will be jammed, cyber-attacks will shut down key institutions. After that, Russian tanks and soldiers will advance.” — Caitlyn McFall
