The NGA is believed to be conspiring to use the false flag event as a cover to justify an invasion of Ukraine.
American intelligence warned that Vladimir Putin could brazenly orchestrate the events necessary for him to flee when he sent troops to Kiev.
The world is waiting to see what Vlad will do next when the Russian military fears may already be in Ukraine.
And today Kiev confirmed that they broke a Russian-backed plot to launch attacks on two cities to “destabilize” the region.
Fake flags have been used many times throughout history to create the cover needed to justify a war.
Joe Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki said: “Russia has pre-arranged a task force to conduct a false flag operation in eastern Ukraine.
Russia denies any intention of aggression against Ukraine.
But here are some provocations Russia could use if it becomes the “wrong flag” that the US has warned about.
Russia is no stranger to the use of chemical weapons – including brazen attacks on foreign soil, such as the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury.
Moscow is also accused of using nerve agents and mustard gas along with the Syrian regime during its intervention in the Middle East.
And meanwhile, in what could be seen as a double scam – Russia has raised the specter of a potential chemical attack in Ukraine.
Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu suggested that US military contractors may be present in border areas armed with a “identified chemical”.
The US State Department has criticized this as “fictitious” and pointed out that Russia has used such weapons twice in recent years.
Russia has conducted “combat readiness tests” including chemical warfare exercises to operate in a “contaminated” war zone.
Ukrainian intelligence has warned that Russia could create a “provocation” by attacking an embassy or consulate.
Putin would then blame the “attack” on Ukrainian far-right nationalists and use the potential false flag as a propaganda tool.
Alex Kovzhun, a political strategist and former adviser, told The Guardian that Russia needed to create a “compelling” story to draw the Russian people to its side.
“They’re obsessed with their TV ratings. All of us Ukrainians are extras in their internal TV show,” he said.
“They are the main characters. Over time, they change the bad guys. Ukraine is not their favorite place.”
And along with the embassy, another target could be a similar attack on Russian forces in the disputed Donbass.
Putin could also take a page out of Adolf Hitler’s book and suggest that there is a threat to ethnic Russians in Ukraine.
Hitler used the wrong chess tactic with the so-called Gleiwitz incident, in which his brutal SS staged an attack on a radio station in Germany.
The attackers posed as Polish citizens, and it aided in the invasion that followed a month later and sparked World War 2.
It was used to disguise the invasion as an act of self-defense against the Poles’ “atrocities” against the Germans.
“Its credibility is not important. The victor will not be asked whether he is telling the truth,” Hitler said shortly before the invasion of Poland.
Vlad could use a similar play to portray a threat against native Russians in Ukraine, the largest ethnic minority in the country at 17% with 8 million people.
Putin has warned that Ukraine may be considering a “genocide” of its pro-Russian supporters.
Another possible misstep for Putin is to suggest that the US could deploy hypersonic missiles to Ukraine.
Russia has raised this possibility, although it is widely understood that such a move would make little sense for the United States.
Last year, Putin warned that the US “will provide Ukraine with hypersonic weapons” and suggested that would mean a nuclear bomb could hit Moscow in “five minutes”.
He insisted it was the “most serious threat” to its national security, and that it meant they would “simply have nowhere else to turn”.
With the Russian leader already sowing these seeds, Putin is likely to turn this around once again to justify and attack Ukraine.
Putin could also use his shady special forces to launch an attack on pro-Russian separatists in the Donbas.
Since Crimea was illegally annexed by Russia in 2014, rebel groups have been vying for control of Ukraine’s easternmost region.
Many separatist groups support Russia and want to create a new state with close ties to Putin’s regime.
However, Vlad can use them to justify the fight by attacking them with Spetsnaz commandos.
The massacre could provide an excuse for Russia to move into the Donbas – and potentially deeper into Ukraine – to protect its allies.
