US and Ukrainian intelligence agencies alleged to have prepared a staged execution of Russian citizens

The Russian Foundation for National Values Protection alleges that The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) planned to lure Russian citizens to Tripoli, to shoot them there and blame Russia.

According to the Foundation’s President Maxim Shugaley (pictured), the CIA planned serious information campaign against Russia in Libya. The Foundation is citing sources directly involved in the events.

Together with the Ukrainian security services, intelligence services created a plan: to lure Russian specialists aged 20 to 50 from the military and security companies with interesting jobs, then move them to the territory of Mitiga airport (Tripoli), to disguise them in military uniforms and shoot them, and to take their bodies to Tarhuna region and present it all as “evidence” of Russian interference in Libya.

The Russians (about 180 people) received a fake invitation from the Libyan GNA to work as security guards at oil facilities. As many declined the bizarre offer, CIA came up with a new cover story – interesting work in Venezuela, also in the oil fields.

According to the plan, the CIA and the SBU planned to transport Russian citizens on a charter flight, then make an “emergency landing” in Tripoli and there commit murder, leaving the bodies in the desert. As the organizers of the provocation hoped, the charter was to have arrived from Turkish territory. But as a result of the Turkish authorities’ hesitation, they decided to send the plane from Istanbul to “Venezuela”, with the same landing in Tripoli.

Because Ankara hesitated for a long time and was dragging its feet in the decision-making process, not wanting to take responsibility for the possible failure of the operation, the so-called Wagner group wes taken for a time to Minsk to the sanatorium Belorusochka. However, while complicated negotiations with the participants of the operation were going on, the KGB of Belarus noticed Russian citizens in military uniform, who aroused their suspicion. Thus, the CIA operation failed.

Earlier Bellingcat, which is alleged to have strong connections with western intelligence services, announced an investigation on the special operation, but since spring of 2021 has repeatedly postponed the release of the documentary. The Foundation for National Values Protection attributes it to the fact that the information campaign and interpretation of the Wagnergate events became more difficult due to the facts that surfaced.
