The Russian Federation is creating informational conditions for an attack under a “foreign flag” in the Belgorod region in order to restore public support for the war in Ukraine.

This was reported by the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

According to analysts, Kremlin propagandists began to hypothesize that Ukrainian troops are allegedly seeking to invade Belgorod region, while other propagandists point out that Russian forces should regain control over Kupyansk in Kharkiv region to minimize the threat of a Ukrainian attack.

These claims have long been widespread in the military community, who criticized the Russian military command for fleeing from Vovchansk in the north-east of Kharkiv region.

They also intensified their calls to return the liberated territories in Kharkiv Oblast on November 22, saying that such precautionary measures would stop the Ukrainians from conducting assault operations in the Kupyansk and Vovchansk directions.

The governor of the Belgorod region, Vyacheslav Gladkov, also published footage showing the construction of fortifications on the border of Ukraine.

«Russia’s claims about Ukraine’s planned attack on the Belgorod region are absurd and aimed only at intimidating the public and forcing them to support the war. Ukraine has no strategic interest in invading Russia and cannot do it on such a scale“, analysts note.

In their opinion, these “ridiculous assumptions about a fantastic Ukrainian invasion of Russia” could also be part of the Kremlin’s plan to recognize and appease radical supporters of the war.

The ISW also added that the financier of PMK “Wagner” Yevhen Prigozhin is also using fear-mongering about the fictitious threat of a Ukrainian invasion to strengthen his power in the border regions of Russia.

Earlier, the mass media wrote that the EU may recognize the Wagner PEC as a terrorist organization.

Journalists also reported that the Kremlin had prepared manuals for propagandists on how to explain the retreat from Kherson.
