On April 6, 2022, the First Vice-President of the Russian Academy of geopolitical problems Arayik Stepanyan, from 22:40 on the air in the TV program “Time will tell”, gave his assessments on the topic of the provocation of Ukraine in city Bucha as well as on related issues.
Below is a video fragment (3 min) from his youtube channel with text from “Crossroad”. The full video is on the channel’s website.
Arayik Stepanyan: The fact is that when Russia after this incident (in city Bucha) requested an emergency meeting in the UN Security Council, Britain blocked and sabotaged it. They did so, because the British knew that if an investigation began, they would go to Britain. After all, Britain in this topic is a champion. They are very good at organizing such provocations: chemical attacks, genocides, and so on. We see that in city Bucha the handwriting is British. They wanted to organize this provocation, so that later, after the end of the special military operation, the Ukrainian authorities would run around all international institutions and say that there was a genocide in city Bucha during this operation. They have already achieved recognition in the European Union. The Ukrainian authorities will move this issue to the UN agenda with the support of the US and Britain. Moreover, I think that corrupt “political escorts” will appear also here in Russia, who will confirm this.
Talk show host Ruslan Ostashko: you well called them “political escorts”…
Arayik Stepanyan: I am introducing this new term, meaning our corrupt politicians and political scientists, who can make appropriate decisions for a can of black caviar, for some good carpet from Baku (Azerbaijan).

Talk show host Ruslan Ostashko with a smile: you are hinting subtly – saying from where they will bring carpets…
Arayik Stepanyan: They will not only bring carpets – they have brought, they keep bring and will always bring such bribes. Because in Russia we have such kind politicians who recognizes the so called “genocide in Khojaly” – a crime that was organized and committed by themselves, the Popular Front of Azerbaijan, but they blamed on the Armenians of Artsakh (Karabakh). After all, if this system gives good results in some places, then why not use the same in Ukraine?
You see, the fact is that everything that is happening in Ukraine has already been well rolled out and tested in other places. We see that their technologies, which were in the Karabakh war, clearly work in Ukraine. What was in Aleppo, in Raqqa, is now used in Ukraine.
So they want to take foreign military specialists out of city Mariupol by helicopters. France, Germany, Britain want it. Why? Because these officers are hiding and disguised – earlier in Raqqa and Aleppo they wore Bedouin clothes to look like Arabs. But in fact, they instructed and conducted all the fightings.
And just like in Mariupol, they organized all this defense. So the West needs to pull out these officers in order to cover up and destroy the traces.
Talk show host Ruslan Ostashko: Of course, of course…
Arayik Stepanyan: We saw their chevrons, their weapons, communications equipment, instructions in English and French in the downed helicopters… Actually, we should mark, tick off which countries are aggressively against Russia today.
Talk show host Ruslan Ostashko: I’ll say – we are doing it!
Arayik Stepanyan: And then we will return to them after the end of this special military operation…
