On April 16, Aleksandr Gaponenko, a well-known pro-Kremlin activist in Latvia, published a Facebook post, suggesting that American special operations forces will carry out ethnic cleansing of Latvians that are native Russian language speakers during a military exercise that begins on May 12.
Why did the ruling Latvian elite suddenly become brave and started forced assimilation of Russians? [..]Unexpectedly, I received the answer to this question tonight, during a meeting with an American friend. He enlightened me that on May 12–15, large-scale exercises of NATO troops will be held in Latvia. Nearly a regiment of the American special operations forces will take part. The fighters are already arriving in Riga in small groups by civilian planes, dressed as civilians. They settle in the hotel “Latvia” and other expensive hotels, go around the city in groups of five.
In the course of the forthcoming exercises on the streets of the capital, the American special forces will obviously play the scenario of a “Russian rebellion.” One part of Americans will depict “Russian insurgents”.[..] The other part of the special operations forces will play “the forces of democracy and progress.”
For the environment, the Anglo-Saxons will come up with a half-dozen tires by the Latvian Parliament building, and spray chloropicrin from yellow cylinders with the inscription “Chlorine”. They will later take a video of snot-stuffed and tearful deputies and will show these scary shots on the BBC’s channels and EuroNews. It will be announced that this is the realization of hybrid threats from Russia.
Early in the morning, the American Special Forces and the local security police, apparently, will hold demonstrative arrests of fifty Russian activists and place them in a temporarily equipped concentration camp. The friend did not speak about the location, but I think that this is an indoor stadium “Skonto”. I played football in there other days, it is very fit for this purpose.
I spoke with several leaders of the Russian movement. They said that the scenario I described is very likely to be true.[..]
