DESPERATE: Ukraine accuses New York Times of “working for the Kremlin”
By Ethan Huff // Dec 28, 2023

The Center for Countering Disinformation (CCD), a state-funded information warfare agency based out of Ukraine, is accusing journalists at the New York Times who cover the Ukraine-Russia conflict of having been recruited by Russian secret services to spread anti-Ukraine propaganda.

Even though the Times has strongly supported Ukraine without question since the start of the invasion, the CCD insists that secret Russian agents are working at the Times to cast Kyiv in a negative light.

"In order to write this text, the Russian Federation has used American journalists who were recruited during their work in Russia," reads an official statement from the CCD following the publishing of an article published by the Times calling for peace negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv.

Listed as the authors of the Times article in question are Anton Troianovski, the paper's Moscow bureau chief, and staff writers Adam Entous and Julian E. Barnes, both of whom are mentioned in the article's byline.

According to the article, "two former senior Russian officials close to the Kremlin," along with numerous United States and international officials, are aware that Russian President Vladimir Putin "has been signaling through intermediaries since at least September that he is open to a ceasefire that freezes the fighting along the current lines."

The same article says the Kremlin has been utilizing "back-channel diplomacy" to suggest that Putin "is ready to make a deal."

Paranoid Ukraine sees Russian agents hiding under every rock

According to the CCD, the angle the Times writers took in suggesting that Moscow might be sending a "signal" that it is ready to give peace a chance is just a ploy aimed at "preventing further military aid for the Ukrainian Armed Forces from the West."

In other words, by claiming that Putin is ready to engage a ceasefire, the Times is effectively standing in the way of more money, weapons and other loot being sent from the West to fill the coffers of Ukraine – which some believe has become one of the money laundering and organized crime capitals of the world.

Another thing the CCD is accusing the Times of with the article in question is "boosting the rating" of former President Donald Trump, who as most know is running against President Joe Biden in 2024, once again as a Republican.

The reason for this particular CCD claim has to do with comments recently made by Trump himself on the campaign trail, which included promises that, if reelected to the White House, Trump will very quickly end the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

"One shouldn't forget that Russia is playing a game of 'peace,' while investing more in its defense industry and building up its army," the CCD statement on the matter further reads. "There is no mention of it in the article, obviously."

According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, the Times article in question is "incorrect," but for other reasons. Russia's military strategy towards Ukraine remains unchanged, he commented, adding that Moscow will only agree to engage in negotiations "exclusively for the achievement of its own goals."

There were peace negotiations that previously occurred back in the spring of 2022, but Russia accused Ukraine of abruptly walking away from the previously agreed-upon terms of the deal. Now, Ukraine is saying that peace talks with Russia can only resume if Russia agrees to recognize Ukraine's 1991 borders, a demand that Russia has repeatedly stated is "impossible."
