Russian President Vladimir Putin and his closest ally, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukaschenko, killed and raped hundreds of civilians in Ukrainian Bucha on Tuesday while the town was occupied by Russian troops. He revealed a new theory of who is responsible for the torture.
They argued that all witnessed Russian soldiers, satellite imagery, and forensic evidence did not suggest that they had continued a month-long rampage of looting and killing.
The real culprit that Lukaschenko claimed without evidence was a British operative who conducted a “psychological special operations” in the lush suburbs of Kieu.
Lukaschenko and Putin spoke at a carefully coordinated press conference at Vostokny’s space launch facility in the Far East of Russia. Putin has made its first public appearance outside Moscow since Russia launched its brutal invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Lukaschenko said he and Putin had discussed in detail “a psychological special operations in Bucha conducted by the British.”
Later, a Belarusian dictator told reporters that the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation would provide materials to support his seemingly ridiculous claim.
“If you need your address, passport, license number, brand, date of arrival in Bucha, and how, the FSB can provide these materials,” Lukaschenko said in a translation of NBC’s remarks.
Putin said he gave him the “documents” about the murder in Bucha that Lukaschenko gave him to the FSB.
“The FSB has a related interception of how it came to the reconciliation and created the conditions for organizing this provocation and fake,” he told reporters.
The British Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Lukaschenko’s allegations on Tuesday.
Putin previously claimed that the death in Bucha was a “fake” and that the Kremlin performed hundreds of bodies found there.
But Tuesday seemed to be the first time that both Belarusian and Russian security agencies helped promote the claim that Britain was the secret force behind the plot.
Russian troops ruled many towns like Bucha in northern Ukraine during the first few weeks when they failed to drive to seize the capital Kyiv. When it became clear that the Kremlin could not occupy the city, Russian troops withdrew, leaving traces of genocide and destruction.
In Bucha alone, more than 400 civilians have been found dead since the withdrawal of the Russians, many leaving traces of the death penalty, rape and torture. Almost overnight, an international consortium that documents allegations of war crimes has gathered to support the process in more than 12 countries.
Speaking in Cosmodrom, Putin used both whataboutism and false information in an attempt to divert attention from the atrocities of Russian soldiers.
At one point, he complained that NATO also caused the death of civilians in combat, suggesting that Western anger in Russia against the death of civilians in Bucha was hypocritical.
Then he compared Bucha with the Syrian city.There, Russian-backed President Bashar al-Assad was using chemical weapons. 2013 Civil War Later, rebels accused them of gassing their supporters to form Assad.
As Putin and Lukaschenko spun elaborate plots to explain the atrocities from Syria, more and more evidence of possible war crimes by Russian troops became apparent, and the international community solidified its determination this week.
Hours after Putin and Lukaschenko’s talks and their bizarre allegations about British agents, President Joe Biden said this same evidence seemed worse than an isolated war crime-it was a genocide. It looked like.
“I called it genocide because it became increasingly clear that Putin was trying to wipe out the idea of becoming a Ukrainian,” Biden said late Tuesday night.
“Evidence continues to grow. It looks different than last week. There is literally more evidence of the horrifying things the Russians have done in Ukraine,” he said.
