In that sense, these weapons could be represented in such a way that they appear to have been supplied by the West to Ukraine, according to the Pentagon spokesman.

Kirby has reiterated that the United States has information about Moscow’s attempts to fabricate a pretext to invade Ukraine. “One option is that the Russian government plans to fake a false attack by the Ukrainian armed forces or intelligence against sovereign Russian territory or against Russian-speakers to justify its actions,” he said.

These comments come just one day after Joe Biden decided to send 3,000 US soldiers to allied countries in Eastern Europe due to the mobilization of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine.
