Russia is preparing a pretext for invading Ukraine: US official
Al Jazeera, 15 Jan 2022
The United States has accused Russia of planning a so-called “false flag” operation in eastern Ukraine, in an attempt to create an excuse for an invasion.
The Pentagon says there is evidence Russian agents might already be in the country to carry out acts of sabotage and blame Ukraine for them.
A Kremlin spokesman has dismissed the reports as “unfounded”.
