US has been planning for clashes between Ukrainian and Russian naval forces in the Black Sea since 1990s

Summary of Disinformation

Audio of a telephone call by a former Russian soldier is played in the studio. He claims that in the 1993 – 1994, while posted in Yugoslavia, he came across a US computer game that simulated clashes between Ukrainian and Russian naval forces in the Black Sea.

This means that the Americans have probably “been planning” for such a scenario as far back as the 1990s, presenter concludes. They have been “several steps ahead”.


The US has always been “dreaming” of organising a “regional European war”.

No connection between a potential video game in the 1990s and the war in Ukraine, which was provoked and is maintained by Russia.
