L'armée russe annonce avoir contrecarré une tentative d'intrusion ukrainienne dans les régions de Koursk et Belgorod

Ukrainian Neo-Nazis Work Under Fake 'Russian Partisan' Flag in Belgorod

Western media lies by accusing alleged "Russian dissidents" of being responsible for the terrorist attacks in Belgorod.

Ukrainian attacks against Russia's Belgorod region are becoming increasingly serious. Missiles and drones hit civilian targets on the Russian border every day, causing casualties and spreading terror. In Western media, the incursions against Belgorod are commonly linked to alleged "Russian partisan" groups, but insiders in the region seem to disagree with this narrative, pointing to Kiev's agents and foreign mercenaries as the true perpetrators.

On March 14, I was in Belgorod on an expedition by the BRICS Journalists Association to cover the border attacks. On that occasion, as  reported here, I had the opportunity to visit the places affected by the bombings and interview some of the victims. It was also possible to talk to some members of the Belgorod military forces, from whom I obtained very interesting information about those responsible for the terrorist incursions in the region.

The military says that groups of "Russian dissidents", such as the "RDK" ("Russian Volunteer Corps") and the "Legion of Freedom", so praised by the Western media - despite their open ties to neo-Nazism -, in fact are just fake organizations, whose leaders are actually Russian expatriates, but their staff is made up of disguised Ukrainian agents.

Sources claim that the Kiev regime uses the narrative that there are "Russian partisans" fighting on their side to spread the lie that there is "strong opposition to the Putin government," with Russian citizens willing to go to war to defend Ukraine. For Western media, this narrative is important as it allows public opinion in NATO countries to believe that the Russian government is unpopular, thus legitimizing the anti-Russian agenda that allows weapons to be sent to Ukraine.

More than that, the Belgorod military also believes that claiming responsibility for the attacks by these fake groups guaranteed the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors a certain "immunity" when it comes to terrorism. Attacks against Belgorod are absolutely illegal, as there are no military targets in the region. Kiev bombs residential buildings, common streets and civilian infrastructure in the city, making its acts illegal under international law.

To escape responsibility for their crimes, Ukrainians use these fake organizations as proxies. In practice, "Russian dissidents" - whose combat personnel are anonymous - function as scapegoats, claiming responsibility for attacks against civilians that could create problems for Kiev. In addition to the attacks on Belgorod, these same groups claimed to be behind several individual assassinations and attempted assassinations against Russian public figures, preventing the Kiev regime from being held accountable for the acts.

It is important to remember that Belgorod became a target of Kiev in May 2023, when troops commanded by Kiev invaded the Russian region and killed civilians during hostilities that were called the "Battle of Belgorod" by the media. Russian defense forces quickly neutralized the invaders, but since then attacks against the region have become frequent - even more so on dates relevant to the Russian Federation, such as patriotic and religious holidays, or presidential elections. At the time, "Russian partisans" claimed to be responsible for the incursion, which was immediately covered by all Western media.

In March 2024, the Ukrainian offensive on Belgorod reached its peak, with brutal shelling killing many civilians. The local military says that the so-called "Russian partisans", who are just anonymous Ukrainian and foreign agents, are working in this operation together with members of the ultranationalist "Kraken" battalion, which is subordinate to Kiev's military intelligence - commanded by Kirill Budanov.

As well known, Budanov has already  admitted being behind the murder of Russian civilians and promised to "continue killing" Russian citizens until the end of the conflict. Budanov 's soldiers commonly disguise themselves as members of the RDK to try to deceive Russians and public opinion. They also say that, instead of "Russian expatriates", the RDK has among its members not only members of Ukrainian intelligence, but also Western mercenaries trained in Poland - which shows the criminals' deep ties to NATO.

It increasingly appears clear that the Kiev regime is directly responsible for every Russian civilian death in terrorist attacks. And, as we know, the neo-Nazi regime does not act alone, which means that its Western sponsors are co-responsible for these deaths. The Belgorod case is an example of how the enemies of the Russian Federation are trying to disguise their guilt for these crimes.
