Russian Agent Maria Butina Claims Ukrainians Are Bombing Themselves

Rolling Stone

March 9, 2022

Maria Butina, the Russia agent who infiltrated the National Rifle Association and charmed several Republican figures before landing an 18-month prison sentence, has emerged as one of Vladimir Putin’s most vocal advocates as Russian forces continue to wreak havoc on Ukraine and its people. In fact, Butina is so deep in Putin’s propaganda hole that she’s suggesting it’s Ukraine itself, not Russia, laying waste to Ukraine.

“We have tons of evidence that the Russia army does not touch, does not bomb civilian populations,” she told BBC Radio’s Nick Robinson on Wednesday.

The remark came at the end of a tense exchange in which Robinson pressed Butina on whether she believed Ukraine has been bombing itself. “I want to seriously see the evidence that these are Russians,” Butina said before touting Russia’s plan to create “humanitarian corridors” to evacuate people from Ukrainian cities under attack. The corridors, however, lead into Russia and Belarus. “They are citizens of Ukraine, they should have the right to evacuate to the territory of Ukraine,” a spokesperson for Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky told Reuters.

“Are you suggesting that the shells that are flattening Ukrainian cities are being fired by Ukrainians?” Robinson asked again.

3. no one should interview her without loudly proclaiming that she was a Russian spy

welcomed with open arms by the GOP, including several GOP politicos she "honey-trapped," and that she filtered millions of Putin rubles through the NRA to the Republicans.

GOP== Gullibles of Putin

17. She was introduced with:

"She is a Putin loyalist, who makes social propaganda videos backing the war, and she was jailed when she was in the United States, for conspiring to infiltrate political organizations, including the National Rifle Association."

20. Just need the word SPY...

Not to mention GOP, Republicans, and Trump.

She was a honey trap aimed specifically at Republican pols. It was a deliberate infiltration directed from Moscow...
Boy, I hope some day there is one great book that really explains everything and how it all connects to Trump and Putin--

J. Anthony Lukas Nightmare did that for Watergate, I think, though of course other books were also useful.
It takes a far more incisive mind than mine to keep track of all these different strands of corruption.

But Buttina always pings my strings, because she is SO old-style KGB -- a honey/money trap.

The boyfriend/dupe from South Dakota was arrested too, though for a related finacial grift, as I recall-- but he was pardoned by Trump in Trump's last desperate pardon party.

5. Suka

Had to look it up. I don't speak Russian.

From JustLearn

"many people often use the following sentence: (Zakroyi svoyi rot, suka!),’ which means ‘Shut your mouth, bitch!’"

Tell that to the Chechens and Georgians.

13. Of course they are bombing themselves.

They hate life. They are willing to die to make Putin look like a heel. Now that is dedication that deserves reward.

16. Better opening sentence?

“Maria Butina, the Russia agent and GOP fuck toy who infiltrated the National Rifle Association…”

I have a number of images of Butina. In every one of them she is shown with - Republicans,

And. NOT. ONE. Democrat.

18. Robinson was the wrong person to try the 'Nazi' stuff on

After she BSed about 'Nazi actions' , he asked "do you think President Zelenskyy is a Nazi?" she replied "according to his actions, absolutely". He replied:

"He's Jewish; his great-grandfather died fighting the Nazis, as part of Russia. I put it to you again that he's a bit of an unlikely Nazi."

She BSed "Nazism is about killing, murdering, torturing ... based upon their race, their nationality, their country of origin..."
"So is Vladimir Putin a Nazi? Because he is currently bombing civilians in cities all over Ukraine. By your definition, is he a Nazi?"

Robinson's maternal grandparents were Jewish Germans who fled the country in 1933. He was in Kyiv when the invasion started, and he'd already expressed his disgust at the 'Nazi' smear.

It ends up, after she's claimed there is evidence Ukraine is bombing its own people:

"You just said you had the evidence. What's the evidence?"
"Because Russians just don't do it."
"Ah, Russians just don't do it. Other than in countries like Syria, in Chechnya, other than in Ukraine today..."
