The S-300 Fake News Provocation Didn’t Change Israel’s Stance Towards Ukraine
Judging by the three points that senior Ukrainian advisor and peace talks negotiator David Arakhamia expressed disappointment over to the Times Of Israel on Tuesday, it can be presumed that the orchestrators of this fake news provocation wanted Israel to arm Kiev, stop its mediation efforts, and completely cut off ties with Russia. For the very reason that he was still asking for these to happen five days after Russia allegedly allowed Syria to use its S-300s against attacking Israeli jets on Friday, observers can conclude that they haven’t yet occurred, which in turn means that this viral report was fake news.
The fake news provocation that began circulating at the start of this week alleging that Russia finally allowed Syria to fire its S-300s at Israeli jets during their most recent attack against the Arab Republic on Friday failed to change the Jewish State’s stance towards the Ukrainian Conflict like it was presumably intended to do. This is evidenced by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s senior advisor and top peace talks negotiator David Arakhamia telling the Times Of Israel on Tuesday that his country is still waiting for Israel to send it arms. Additionally, he asked it to “stop blocking weapon sales to Ukraine.”
Arakhamia also said that he thinks Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s mediation attempts “were not successful”, though he said that his side is still ready to meet in Jerusalem at any time. He also took the opportunity to bring up the scandal over Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s legitimate anti–fascist remark earlier this month to share his wish that “after Lavrov demonstrated Russia’s attitude to Jewish people, I really hope Israel will choose their side and act accordingly.” These three points about arms sales, failed mediation efforts, and Lavrov’s remarks suggest that Ukraine remains displeased with Israel.
Had the earlier cited fake news about Russia finally allowing Syria to fire its S-300s at Israel jets been true, however, then one would assume that Israel might have already changed its stance towards Ukraine in the five days between then and Arakhamia’s interview with the Times Of Israel. This adds credence to the conclusion that the report wasn’t true but was likely propagated in the hopes of obtaining that outcome for dividing Israel and Russia to Kiev and its US patron’s benefit. That in turn suggests that more similar such fake news provocations might be forthcoming.
The reason for this prediction is that they’re low-cost but could potentially entail major strategic gain if successful. Those who orchestrated the latest fake news provocation were keenly aware of how tense Russian-Israeli relations had become over Tel Aviv voting against Moscow at the UN and then misunderstanding Lavrov’s legitimate anti-fascist remark. They realized that now was the perfect time to experiment with dividing and ruling their societies through fake news in the hopes of generating grassroots pressure in Israel for pressuring Tel Aviv to cross the Rubicon in its ties with Russia.
Judging by the three points that Arakhamia expressed disappointment over, it can be presumed that the orchestrators wanted Israel to arm Kiev, stop its mediation efforts, and completely cut off ties with Russia. For the very reason that he was still asking for these to happen, observers can conclude that they haven’t yet occurred, which in turn means that the S-300 fake news provocation failed. That will undoubtedly upset not only the orchestrators, but also those well-intended but naïve members of the Alt-Media Community who so desperately wanted to believe that Russia finally let Syria use the S-300s.
