Incredibly, it turns out that the missile strike on Poland was even more sinister than I originally reported.
In order to better understand just how fucking close we came to global nuclear war last week, I’ve put together a timeline, much of it thanks to (Polish media) Radio ZET’s live coverage of the event.
November 15, 2022
(all times are for the Polish time zone, GMT +1)
Morning-Afternoon – Russia launches 96 missiles and UAVs against targets in Ukraine.
15:40 – At least one explosion occurs in Przewodów, Poland, a small village of 412 people that is located just 6 kilometers across the border from Ukraine. Witnesses says they heard two different “whistling sounds” before the grain elevator blew up, killing two people who were standing next to or operating a tractor, which was also destroyed.
Unknown – Local firefighters respond to the scene, and one of them captures the image of what is later identified as an S-300 missile.
Unknown – The military arrives and seals off the area.
18:28 – Polish media outlet Radio ZET hears about the incident in Przewodów and begins investigating, led by journalist Mariusz Gierszewski. His first tweet says “Unofficial: two stray missiles fell in the town of Przewodów in the Lublin province near the border with Ukraine. They hit grain dryers. Two people were killed. The police, prosecutor’s office, and the army are on the spot.”
Note that he says two missiles, not one.
Much later, the strike is geolocated to 50.47453N, 23.92314E which is indeed near what looks to be grain elevators. For some reason, the auto-translation of Polish reports calls this a grain “drying” facility. I’m not sure if these elevators in question also are designed to dry grain before storing it, but some grain elevators do, indeed, have this capability.
18:58 – Radio ZET tweets: “Two people are dead after an explosion in Przewodów near the border with Ukraine. The explosion occurred in the grain drying room when a tractor drove onto the scales. We do not know what happened, the area is secured, the secretary of the Dołhobyczów commune [regional government] told [Radio ZET journalist] Michał Dzienyński.”
19:?? – On its website, the AP publishes a one-line statement from an anonymous “senior U.S. intelligence official” that says that the missiles [plural] were Russian in origin. The statement was not tweeted and so there is no official timestamp that I can find.
19:41 – Latvian defense minister Artis Pabriks tweets in English: “My condolences to our Polish brothers in arms. Criminal Russian regime fired missiles [plural] which target not only Ukrainian civilians but also landed on NATO territory in Poland. Latvia fully stands with Polish friends and condemns this crime.”
At just after midnight, he would go on CNN and continue to amplify these claims.
19:45 – Other outlets begin reporting what the AP said about how the missiles (plural) were launched by Russia.
20:10 – Ukrainian journalist Nika Melkozerova tweets in English: “So… Article 5?” referring to the NATO Article 5 of mutual self-defense.
20:32 – ZET Radio journalist Mateusz Lachowski tweets the now famous photos of the downed missile(s) and says “So far, everything indicates that a [single] Russian missile or missiles [plural] fell on Przewodów.”
On its website, ZET radio adds, “According to Lachowski, experts issued an opinion that it was a Russian missile after evaluating the photos of the remains found in Przewodów” after Lachowski posts his tweet.
21:02 – Russia’s ministry of defense officially denies launching any missiles into Poland.
21:20 – Gitanas Nauseda, the president of Lithuania, tweets in English: “Concerning news from Poland tonight on at least two explosions. Keeping a close contact with our Polish friends. Lithuania 🇱🇹 stands in strong solidarity with Poland 🇵🇱. Every inch of #NATO territory must be defended!”
21:30 – ZET Radio reports that US State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel tells the Polish government, “We are working with Poland to determine what happened and what the next appropriate steps will be.”
21:31 – Ukrainian president Zelensky, during his nightly video address, accuses Russia of launching missiles [plural] at Poland. Other outlets confirm the accusation from Zelensky that missiles [plural] were fired by Russia into Poland.
21:52 – ZET Radio journalist Piotr Olejarz is on the scene in Przewodów and tweets a video of the village being sealed off.
22:26 Polish president Andrzey Duda telephones Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary-general of NATO
22:35 – Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba tweets in English: “Russia now promotes a conspiracy theory that it was allegedly a missile of Ukrainian air defense that fell on the Polish [sic] theory. Which is not true. No one should buy Russian propaganda or amplify its messages.”
22:43 – Polish president Andrzey Duda telephones American president Joe Biden, who was at the G20 conference in Bali.
23:02 – Polish president Andrzey Duda telephones Ukrainian president Zelensky.
00:08 – Poland’s ministry of foreign affairs says it “confirmed that a Russian-made missile landed on Polish territory. The Russian ambassador was summoned with a demand for detailed explanations.”
???? – The G7 leaders in Bali hold an emergency meeting. After sunrise, [Indonesian time is GMT +7), Biden speaks to the press and says it was “unlikely” that Russia fired the [singular] missile into Poland.
At this point, all news stories switch to it being a case of a singular explosion from a single missile.
00:51 – Polish president Andrzey Duda says, “we have no clear evidence of who launched the missile (singular) that killed two people in Przewodów.”
07:29 – The AP reports that three anonymous US administration sources have confirmed that the missile [singular] was launched by Ukraine.
From this point onward, the story becomes that it was a “terrible accident” that Ukraine launched a single S-300 missile into Poland, and it’s all Russia’s fault because Ukraine was just trying to defend itself.
With all the attention that this story got, a number of people from around the world began doing their own investigating.
First, it was confirmed that Poland’s military has a stationary long-range RAT 31 DL radar station in Łabunie, which is just about 50 kilometers from Przewodów.
This radar station is networked with NATO’s BACKBONE early warning system. This system is specifically designed to track all airborne objects, especially those that might pose a threat (i.e. fired from Russia).
On a day when Russia was firing 90 missiles and UAVs into Ukraine, there is zero chance that this radar station in Łabunie was not operational.
Second, since March of this year, the United States military has had a Patriot missile battery stationed at the airport in Rzeszów, Poland, about 170 kilometers from Przewodów. This battery is specifically designed to provide protection for military flights to and from Ukraine.
Every time you hear that the United States has sent weapons to Ukraine, it is first flown to Rzeszów. Therefore, it is impossible that it was not tracking inbound threats from Ukraine’s direction.
Third, at the time of the missile strike(s), there was a NATO E3-A “Sentry” AWACS plane in the air over eastern Poland. CNN reported that an unnamed military official confirmed the presence of the plane in the area and that it had recorded the inbound tracks [of the missiles, plural], data which was later shared with all the members of NATO.
Fourth, a guy named Denys Davydov, who is a virulently anti-Russian Ukrainian pilot (not sure if military or civilian) with an English-language YouTube channel, posted a video right after the attack, and one of his followers noted something very odd about the longitude and latitude of the village in Poland:
50.4501N, 24.031E = Przewodów, Poland
50.4501N, 30.523E = Kiev, Ukraine
49.8429N, 24.031E = Lviv, Ukraine
In other words, if Russia had mixed up the coordinates (using one from Lviv and one from Kiev), it would make sense that a missile that was supposed to go to Lviv or Kiev could’ve accidentally been launched on Przewodów.
Other anti-Russian folks jumped on this idea and began combing through satellite maps to search for possible targets in Kiev or Lviv that matched those lat/long to “confirm” the theory that Russia input the wrong coordinates.
Fifth, Davydov, in his original video, before it was confirmed that Ukraine was at fault, noted that the S-300 is an air defense missile that simply could not have exploded on the ground in Poland because it is designed to self-destruct (in the air) if it misses its target.
I’m hardly an expert in Soviet missile technology, but the information I’ve found confirms that yes, the S-300 is supposed to automatically self-destruct if it misses its target.
Here’s the twist, though: that self-destruct function can apparently be switched off to convert the S-300 from a surface-to-air missile (the original design) to a surface-to-surface missile, something Ukraine accused Russia of doing earlier this summer.
According to that report, Russia installed a GPS device onto the missile in order to give it its targeting capability (as opposed to intercepting a missile flying through the sky).
The Big Lie
All of the initial reports say that there were two explosions caused by two different missiles hitting the same grain elevator or grain “drying” facility.
Clearly, the US military and the Polish military had a number of airborne and ground-based radar systems that tracked the incoming missile(s). Within just 90 minutes of the explosion(s), the entire security council of Poland had an emergency meeting where this information must have been shared.
Despite this, soon after the meeting, the AP publishes its “anonymous” confirmation from the United States that the missiles (plural) were Russian, and a whole bunch of western journalists ran wild with the story.
Three key figures immediately also “confirmed” that the missiles [plural] were launched by Russia:
- Gitanas Nauseda, the president of Lithuania, who is not just a virulently anti-Russian figure but also a strong ally of Voldermaras Adamkus, the American who served as the president of Lithuania from 1998-2004.
- Artis Pabriks, the deputy PM and defense minister of Latvia. Also virulently anti-Russian. Latvia is also one of the biggest contributors of weapons to Ukraine.
- Volodymir Zelensky – The president of Ukraine.
Furthermore, the Polish Foreign Ministry also “confirmed” the missiles were launched by Russia, and they even summoned the Russian Ambassador to “explain” why his country had attacked Poland.
Then, at some point around midnight (Polish time), after a phone call with Biden’s team in Indonesia, everything magically changed.
First, it became a single missile, and then it was admitted that it was launched by Ukraine. Russia was still at fault, though, because Ukraine had launched the [single] missile in “self-defense” and it just went off course, although it was never quite explained why an air defense missile that missed its target exploded on the ground.
Think about this though: had those photos of one of the missiles (assuming there were two) not been published, what would the story have been?
It would’ve been incredibly easy to say that two Russian missiles hit Poland, and that they were launched at the village (instead of a legitimate target in Ukraine) because of a clear mix-up in the GPS coordinates.
In fact, that’s what a lot of people were saying before the US government changed their story and confirmed it was a Ukrainian missile.
Before that “clarification,” Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland were pushing for a NATO-wide response to Russia’s “attack,” and the longitude/latitude “mix-up” would’ve made for a very logical explanation to anyone doubting the story.
Indeed, Ukraine’s foreign minister preemptively announced that anyone who doubted that Russia launched the missiles was a conspiracy theorist.
At that point, anyone who didn’t fall in line would’ve been smeared as a pro-Russian troll or a liar or a crazy person, and World War III would’ve been launched to the triumphant cheering of the entire Western media.
Furthermore, quite conveniently, this entire incident went down when all the anti-Russian NATO leaders (US, France, Britain, Canada, et al) were gathered together in Indonesia, which would’ve made it a whole lot easier to coordinate the “official message” and the start of the war.
As far as I am concerned, this whole thing had to have been planned ahead of time with the full knowledge of the Polish and Ukrainian governments, only to be foiled by the accidental release of the photographs of the downed missile.
Otherwise, how do you explain the fact that Poland’s government and the Ukrainian leadership officially “confirmed” that the missiles [plural] were launched by Russia, when we now know it’s total hogwash? And this despite the fact that their militaries had to have known immediately where it/they came from? And why did military experts in Poland tell Radio ZET that the photographs were of an S-300 missile that was definitely Russian when Ukraine is the primary user of these?
And why was it two missiles at first, later amended to just one? How could two self-defense missiles from Ukraine both veer off course and land at the exact same spot? And why did both missiles explode on the ground if they were in air defense mode?
And why did that tiny village in Poland conveniently happen to have a latitude and longitude that match Kiev and Lviv, providing a logical “excuse” as to how Russia inputted the wrong coordinates?
And how did those two missiles get through Poland’s beefed-up air defense network in the first place?
Folks, this was obviously a false flag operation set up from the start to finish to provide an excuse for NATO to enter the war against Russia. Literally, nothing else makes sense.
If you weren’t warned before, you are now. These lunatics are trying to kill us all.
