They aren’t even hiding it anymore.
The mainstream media propagandists have resorted to broadcasting U.S. intelligence reports which imply that Putin is days away from invading Ukraine.
But that’s been the leading narrative for weeks now.
Russian military forces have reportedly received orders from Russian President Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine, according to a new report on alleged U.S. intelligence, broadcasted by mainstream “news” outlets.

“The President was very clear that he is convinced by U.S. intelligence that this invasion will happen, that President Putin decided to do it,” CBS News host Margaret Brennan said.
“Because the intelligence says that Russian troops have actually received orders now, to proceed with the invasion,” CBS News correspondent David Martin said.
“So not only are they moving up closer and closer to the border into these attack positions, but the commanders on the ground are making specific plans for how they would maneuver in their sector of the battlefield.”
“They’re doing everything that American commanders would do once they got the order to proceed,” he added.

The report from CBS News come as Putin has amassed approximately 190,000 troops near the Ukraine border, effectively surrounding the country. A U.S. official told reporters on Friday that 40-50% of the up to 190,000 Russian soldiers near Ukraine’s borders are now “in an attack position.”
Sen. Ted Cruz explained during an interview with The Daily Wire this week the reason that Russia held off invading Ukraine in the past and is now primed to do so.
“Putin has long wanted to invade Ukraine. Putin has been very candid, he has described the dissolution of the Soviet Union as in his view, the most disastrous geopolitical event of the 20th century,” Cruz said.
“And his ambitions have long been to reassemble the Soviet Union. He yearns for what he sees as the days of Soviet greatness. If you’re going to reassemble the Soviet Union, the first and most important part is Ukraine, the breadbasket of the former Soviet Union, Putin has invaded Ukraine before.”
The war machine is as greased up as ever.
All for the greater good of “democracy” and liberalism, folks!
