Major winter storm warning as US south braces for big blast of snow and iceMajor winter storm: South braces for big blast of snow, ice

US Official Warns Russia Prepping Pretext for Ukraine InvasionU.S. intelligence officials have determined Russia has already dispatched operatives trained in urban warfare who could use explosives to carry out acts of sabotage against its own proxy forces and then blame the acts on Ukraine to justify an invasion.

I mean it could never be that the CIA/MI6 who are in Ukraine already are planning a false flag would it? 🙃
