Mumbai, 21 Feb: A car bomb exploded in eastern Ukraine on Friday, and a gas pipeline caught fire in eastern Ukraine. These incidents are claimed to be indicative of war.
Despite growing claims that tensions between Russia and Ukraine will not escalate, a different picture emerges in Ukraine. A car bomb had exploded at an Iraqi police recruiting center at Kisak, west of Ukraine. The incident took place in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk. The city is under the control of pro-Russian separatists. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a crowd of mourners. There were no reports of injuries. In addition, a gas pipeline suddenly caught fire in the eastern part of Ukraine. These incidents are claimed to be indicative of war.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's "False Flag Operation" is believed to have begun after the incident. This could be the first phase of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, a possibility that has been repeatedly raised by the United States.
According to the Daily Mail, Russia's state-run media carried the earliest reports of the blast, as well as photographs of the incident. The possibility of a "False Flag Operation" has raised concerns among people living in eastern Ukraine. Russian troops and tanks could cross the border and attack Ukraine, citing "threats" to Russian citizens.
Separatists announce campaign:
Notably, two hours before the blast, two separatists announced their campaign. The separatists had announced that they were planning to evacuate women, children and the elderly from the area. The separatist leaders also advised citizens to migrate to Russia with their families to avoid bloodshed. He also accused the Ukrainian government of plotting the attack. However, the Ukrainian government has denied the allegations.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian government has called on the international community to condemn Russia's provocative actions in eastern Ukraine. Ukraine has said that if Russia does not do so, the situation will worsen.
