Donbass chief responds to Pentagon leaks on Ukraine — RT Russia and the former Soviet Union

Denis Pushilin suggested the revelations could have been intentional as part of an attempt to mislead

Acting head of the Donetsk Russian People’s Republic (DPR), Denis Pushilin, has questioned the authenticity of recently leaked Pentagon documents that allegedly detail Washington’s war plans in Ukraine.

Writing on Telegram on Tuesday, Pushilin noted that the “the whole world is in turmoil” discuss the leaks, which contain alleged information about plans to bomb Russian territory, force Israel to supply weapons to Ukraine and shed light on US surveillance of Ukrainian President Zelensky and other allies.

Several Western media outlets reported that the leaks sent shockwaves through Washington, with Joe Biden’s administration apparently sent in “crisis mode”. The Pentagon, meanwhile, said the documents pose “a very serious risk” in Washington.

However, a number of countries have since begun to doubt the authenticity of the leaked documents, including Ukraine, which presented them as a Russian ploy to derail Kiev’s planned counteroffensive. Others noted inconsistencies and inaccuracies presented in the records.

Nevertheless, the Western media seem to be actively trying to create a “information tsunami” on the subject, according to Pushilin, who suggested that this could mean the leaks were possibly deliberate.

“Who knows, this could be the preparation of the world community for a possible reduction in support for Ukraine on the eve of the highly publicized counter-offensive of the Ukrainian armed forces”, Pushlin wrote.

He also said, however, that regardless of the contents of the leaked documents or the true intentions of the West, Russia’s task is to keep working and not respond to provocations. The DPR leader added that if the West did try to mislead Russia, it would not succeed, because “the bitter experience of our interaction has taught us to treat everything with great skepticism.

Pushilin said that one should still pay attention to the possible plans of Washington and Kiev, noting that the leaked information could very well turn out to be a double-dealing and that Russian forces should reinforce the targets mentioned in the documents.

He also said that whatever the true nature of the leaks, they proved once again that the United States was directly involved in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict.
