    Is Putin preparing a "false flag" attack on a nuclear power plant to drag Belarus into war?

    November 27, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Moscow may be planning in the "near future" to carry out terrorist attacks against the facilities of the Belarusian nuclear power plant Astravets in the Grodno region, for which it would blame Ukraine and NATO, the Intelligence Directorate of the Defense Ministry in Kyiv explained in a statement.The document notes that the alleged attacks would be carried out in territories bordering the EU-Ukraine border, such as the Grodno and Brest regions. "One of the main targets is the Belarusian nuclear power plant Astravets," it notes.This incident would be a "false flag" operation because Russia would be carrying out a maneuver designed to appear to have been carried out by another or others, in this case Ukraine and NATO.Intelligence claims that the Kremlin's idea is to hold citizens of NATO countries and Ukraine disguised in Belarusian military uniforms responsible for the attacks. Belarusian KGB units, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and border troops have already been put on "high alert," it says.This alleged "terrorist attack," as the message calls it, would accelerate Belarus's participation in the war on Moscow's side, as well as create a basis for favorable public opinion about the Kremlin in Belarusian society. "Any possible attack could have implications for radiation leakage to a NATO country," the statement adds. The Astravets plant, built in 2020, is near Belarus' border with Lithuania, some 40 kilometers from its capital, Vilnius.
