Russia’s Ministry of Defense Raining on drumpf’s al-Baghdadi Victory Lap.

1 min read

Take this with as many grains of salt as you want but…


“MOSCOW (Reuters) – The Russian Ministry of Defense said on Sunday it had no reliable information on the U.S. operation that killed Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, state-run RIA news agency reported after U.S. President Donald Trump confirmed his death.

“The Russian Ministry of Defense does not have reliable information on the U.S. servicemen conducting in the Turkish-controlled part of the de-escalation zone of Idlib an operation on yet another ‘elimination’ of the former IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi,” Major-General Igor Konashenkov was quoted by RIA as saying.”

“Yet another”…serious shade there…


“We are unaware of any alleged assistance to the flying of U.S. aviation into the airspace of the Idlib de-escalation zone during this operation,” Major-General Igor Konashenkov was quoted by RIA as saying.”

Either someone is lying here or the good General is spreading disinformation.

If someone IS lying, forced to choose between the Russian Ministry of Defense or drumpf, I’d have to give the Russians a slight edge on veracity.
