There was some news I neglected to post, and news I was surprised was never reported on Fox News or anywhere else. Russia started its invasion yesterday using unmarked tanks and other weaponry used by the Ukrainian military, probably to claim that the Separatists captured them. There are also Russian soldiers, apparently on the border, dressed up in Ukrainian uniforms now.

Well, I say “invasion.” It was maybe a show of force not really seen before.

“We have some more information on the tanks sighted in Alchevsk which we reported earlier, and for which @djp3tros has provided what we consider a convincing geolocation.

YouTube user Novo Ukraina has uploaded the same video today reporting a Russian military convoy in Alchevsk in Lugansk Region, Ukraine, heading toward Perevalsk and Slavyansk.

The convoy had numerous vehicles, and at least 20 tanks, 5 BTRs and 11 trucks. The viewer also spotted anti-aircraft weapons chained to one vehicle. On one of the BTRs, the insignia of the “Almighty Troops of the Don” were seen, a registered Cossack organization.”

From another post on the thread for that day:

“Russian Media Hint at ‘Humanitarian’ Pretext for Wider Invasion
15:12 (GMT)

The Russian, pro-Kremlin, news site has published an article, citing a supposed “source in the Ministry of Defence”, that hints strongly at a possible Russian pretext for invading Ukraine. The source says that not only have forces returned (as we have clearly seen) but that plans exist to cross the border and establish a “humanitarian corridor” in the Donbass.

Russian tanks indeed appear to have already crossed the border, albeit unmarked. The article also describes a visit by Sergei Ivanov, the head of the Presidential Administration, to Rostov where he described the situation in Ukraine as “genocide”. While today’s deployment of unmarked forces may serve to provide some sort of provocation or advanced spearhead to establish control, there are clear signs that the Russian government is considering an open invasion under the guise of humanitarian intervention. Such apparent government leaks in the Russian media are often employed by the Kremlin to give heed to their plans.”

And another:

These developments are extremely worrying. We should note that we have never before seen such an enormous show of force from separatist fighters, and that these unmarked T-64s do not match the appearance of Ukrainian ones we have seen, such as one shown in a recent video.

Following the appearance of three similarly unmarked T-64BVs last week, NATO issued a report in which they said that the vehicles had most likely come out Russian reserve storage and crossed the border.

With video emerging that appears to show a large quantity of Russian heavy armour being ferried by rail close to the border at Millerovo (notably close to Lugansk) yesterday, it appears that an outright invasion by Russia may already be beginning.”

Much much more at link:

I was waiting all day for Fox or anyone to mention it, but was surprised at the silence.

Yes, there have been scattered reports the past few days of Russian military forces donning Ukrainian uniforms and equipment to conduct false flag operations in the Ukraine and in Russia the way Hitler did at Gleiwitz with Poland.

UMCRevMom has one such report: Ukraine military infiltrated by Russian

Unfortunately, the MSM have not, as you noted, provided us with any reports we could quote.

I also have read reports of the same.

Also read of another incursion into US airspace off the coast of California by Russian bombers conducting “practice runs.”

There’s a lot going on in the world and there is a lot we’re not being told.

Just a cautionary note to consider ISIS is from Syria. Russian supports Assad/Syria and Iran.

There’s a lot of dance-cards out there gentlemen and I am not sure which lady is holding them all?
