Friday morning there was a helicopter attack on a major fuel station in Belgorod (Russia). It was set on fire, and Russia is unhappy.

Dmitry Peskov (a Kremlin spokesperson) stated that President Vladimir Putin had been informed about the incident. He also said that it was not possible to perceive this as creating conditions for the continuation of negotiations. ”

Officials from Ukraine refused to confirm or deny that the attack took place. This suggests that it could have been an error by Russia or related to Russian helicopter pilots refusing flight into Ukraine.

Many intelligence and military analysts thought it was a Ukrainian attack. Two Mi-24 helicopters flew low and fired rockets into the fuel dump. The explosion caused a massive explosion, and they flew away at low altitudes.

It will be a risky, bold move by Ukraine if the attack is confirmed. It would see its forces shift from a defensive position to an airstrike on Russia at a time when the Russian military appears weaker.

This place is full of surprises that create a “house full of mirrors” effect.

What really happened? Russia asserts it did, and Ukraine disputes it. Alex Jones claims that a “false flag attack” was conducted by Ukraine.

Although it is absurd, there are some possibilities.

An identical incident took place just four days ago when a Russian ammunition dump burst. The explosion was caused by a Ukrainian missile strike and the impeccable safety record of Russia’s Army.

Both sides use identical helicopters and munitions which is not an advantage.

See Belgorod from the other side.

The target of the attack was a fuel depot that would be needed to support the newfound focus in Donbas, that no one had heard about up until last week. The Ukrainian Army may also be having success and might be open to taking a few shots at Russian cities.

According to my understanding, the attack wasn’t ordered by the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. Occam’s Razor reminds us that while Ukraine did the attack, it was ordered locally by a commander.
