This Dangerous Russian Development Is Worsened by American Fake News

Written by Joe Scudder

A DIA report notes a Russian development that could lead to a horrible conflict and yet the news media makes it worse!

A recently-declassified document from the Defense Intelligence Agency reveals a Russian development and shows that the media’s anti-Russia fake news addiction is endangering the world. Russia is not nearly as strong as the U.S. but it is a nuclear power. War with Russia would be a disaster for everyone. However, Russia has come to believe that the U.S. wants “regime change” in Russia, like we did in Iraq and Libya. If they really believe that, the media’s current fixation on anti-Russia propaganda may have dire consequences.

The Associated Press reports, “Intel Report: Kremlin Sees US Urging Regime Change in Russia.

Kremlin leaders are convinced America is intent on regime change in Russia, a fear that is feeding rising tension and military competition between the former Cold War foes, the Pentagon’s intelligence arm has assessed.

The unclassified report by the Defense Intelligence Agency, which will be publicly released later Wednesday, portrays Russia as increasingly wary of the United States. It cites Moscow’s “deep and abiding distrust of U.S. efforts to promote democracy around the world and what it perceives as a U.S. campaign to impose a single set of global values.”

“The Kremlin is convinced the United States is laying the groundwork for regime change in Russia, a conviction further reinforced by the events in Ukraine,” the report says, referencing the claims by President Vladimir Putin’s government that the U.S. engineered the popular uprising that ousted Ukraine’s Russia-friendly president, Viktor Yanukovich, in 2014. Russia responded by annexing Ukraine’s Crimea region and supporting pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.

“Moscow worries that U.S. attempts to dictate a set of acceptable international norms threatens the foundations of Kremlin power by giving license for foreign meddling in Russia’s internal affairs,” the report says. Titled “Russia Military Power,” it is the agency’s first such unclassified assessment in more than two decades.
