Speaking about a "first move", the Admiral's remark was as follows: “This gets back to that question about conceptual agility in terms of what are not only our responses in pushing back but about how we push first in a couple of areas. I think it would be great if we could get folks, Russians, some of these competitors to respond to our first move. There's an advantage every now and then to playing the white side of the board". See the recording of the Atlantic Council event (minute 52:47).

US warmongering and desire for military confrontation are a common pro-Kremlin narrative. Other recent examples can be found here and here.
