Top German General: Western Evidence of Russian Invasion is Baloney

This guy, Harald Kujat, is a big deal in the German military.  He was Chief of Staff of the German Armed Forces.  He doesn't believe Western and Ukrainian evidence of a Russian invasion.

This comes from a recent episode of one of the most popular political talk shows in Germany, Maybrit Illner.

The other guests on the show including Martin Shulz, President of the European Parliament, kept talking about "Russian aggression".

General Kujat doesn't buy it.  Here's what he said:

  • It's lot of speculation. Proof of Russia's involvement with regular force has not come to my attention so far.
  • For example, the announcement of the Ukrainian President that 23 Russian armed vehicles have been destroyed on Ukrainian soil.  There are no photos of surviving Russian soldiers nor of killed Russian soldiers.
  • We have been shown five satellite pictures as a proof that Russian Forces are in the Ukraine. Three of them were marked officially as "on Russian territory". Two of them are marked as "on Ukraine territory". The Russian pictures are marked with the exact location, while the Ukrainian ones have no mention of location and coordinates.
  • We have to be very careful about what the Ukraine and the West says.
