Bellingcat Film will not Shed Light on Truth, Says Maxim Shugaley


The “investigative movie” by Bellingcat (media, included into the register of foreign mass media, performing the functions of a foreign agent) about the detention of the Russian citizens in Belarus is unlikely to shed light on the truth, says sociologist Maxim Shugaley, head of the Foundation for National Values Protection.

The WagnerGate “investigation” tells about the failed attempt by Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) to kidnap a group of Russian citizens in Minsk in the summer of 2020. At that time, the media reported on the detention of the Russians in a health resort near Minsk. They were later sent home, and a scandal broke out in Ukraine as the Security Service of Ukraine tried to get its hands on the Russians.

It was not the first time when Bellingcat announced the film, says Shugaley.

“Now it was made in the text version, although the documentary should have been allegedly ready by March of this year,” he said. “There is still a question whether this pseudo-investigation will be published. Nevertheless, we should not expect that the film of this media group will reveal the truth about the detention of Russians in Belarus, as I have already said.”

According to Shugaley, a group of Russian citizens had to be lured into a trap by the offer of a contract, and then killed and used in political provocation.

Given the lack of any evidence of the presence of the so-called Wagner Group mercenaries in Libya, an operation was planned by the CIA agents, assigned to the African command of the U.S. armed forces in Tripoli, jointly with Ukraine’s SBU in March-April 2020.

According to their plan, Russian citizens aged 20 to 50 had to be transported to Mitiga Airport (Tripoli), dressed in military uniforms of the MultiCam camouflage pattern and then shot dead. The bodies had to be taken southeast of Tripoli and dumped in the Tarhuna area. Newscasters then announce that a group of Wagner commandos has been destroyed. To implement this scheme, the CIA officers entered into cooperation with the SBU.

To lure out the Russians, they spread the rumors about Venezuelan oil facilities’ recruiting guards. A charter flight to that destination was supposed to make an “emergency landing” in Tripoli where, according to Shugaley, they would have been shot dead and dumped in the desert.

However, no agreement could be reached with the Turkish authorities and intelligence services. To prevent “clients” from escaping, they were transported to Belarus. According to the plan, they would be sent to Turkey by a regular flight, and then from Istanbul to Venezuela by charter (again, with an emergency landing in Tripoli.) The Turkish authorities did not refuse directly but deliberately delayed the flight so that the plan would not fail through their fault. In their opinion, such a “proof” of the presence of Russian citizens in Libya, fabricated by Western intelligence services, would have been lawless and could have compromised the Turkish authorities.

The Russians were moved to a health center due to these delays and told to wait for instructions. However, the Belarusian Committee for State Security (KGB) detained the suspicious men, and the whole plan collapsed. Shugaley believes that they are trying to make at least some sense out of this story to cover up for the CIA. Unsurprisingly, the Bellingcat group has been trying to shoot an investigative movie for a year and sell the story to the whole world about 33 sheep to the slaughter, although the above-mentioned facts are known very well.
