The United States government has warned this Friday that Russia is planning a false sabotage operation against its allied forces in eastern Ukraine in order to build a pretext to invade the former Soviet republic. Sources from the Joe Biden Administration have transferred this accusation to the media on the same day that the Kiev Government denounced a large-scale cyberattack against its systems in a sign that the conflict continues to worsen.

“Russia has placed a group of operatives in order to carry out a mock operation in eastern Ukraine. These operatives are trained in urban guerrilla warfare and the use of explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against their own Russian agents,” said a US government official. The objective was, according to this source, “to create a pretext for the invasion.”

The news puts the finishing touch to a week of negotiations between Russia, the United States and the European allies in NATO that have yielded neither results nor signs of progress. A defiant Kremlin already warned on Monday, at the bilateral meeting with Washington held in Geneva, that Western governments would commit “a big mistake to the detriment of European security” – in the words of the head of the Russian delegation, Sergey Riabkov – if they do not agree. to their wishes, which essentially consist of reducing NATO’s presence in Eastern Europe.
