Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 17:00 on March 29

  • Azov troopers blew up Mariupol Drama Theater from the inside. Proof: windows of buildings nearby weren’t blown out by the explosion.
  • UAF planted mines over the Black Sea.
  • russian conscripts won’t be sent to warzones during the spring conscription campaign. The number of conscripts would be lower. Prosecutor’s office will follow the campaign closely.
  • West loses faith in UAF General Staff russian casualties statistics due to lack of photo and video proofs.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian aircraft dropped the bomb on Mariupol Drama Theater, despite a big sign saying that there were children inside.
  • It is not the first time russians claim that Ukrainians planted mines on the Black Sea shores while the mines started to drift towards Bosphorus. russians even named the number of mines – 420, which is weird because the Black Sea is very stormy, and it would be near-impossible to count the mines in that weather. If russians know how many mines are in the Black Sea, it is probably russian mines.
  • Intelligence General Office of the Ministry of Defense already reported that russia’s planning a mobilization starting April 1st. The program’s name is «BARS-2021» (Combat Army Reserve of the Country). It will be held simultaneously as the planned conscription to hide mass mobilization.
  • All estimates are approximate. On March 23rd, the US and NATO told CNN that russian invaders could have lost somewhere around 3000 to 10000 troops during the war. Even according to OSINT investigators, who indicate the minimum numbers, the russians suffer record losses. Statistics are likely to become available after the war. The General Staff of the Armed Forces has the most complete picture as of now, as it features both closed and open information.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 15:00 on March 29

  • UkrPoshta is now part of the “post office of russia.”
  • J. Michael Springmann: Years might pass until US biolaboratories scandal will get in full force.
  • If russia wanted to take over the entire territory of Ukraine, they would’ve struck rockets on all UAF positions, destroyed their fuel refineries, railroads, highways, took over all chemical plans and NPPs. And only then sent ground troops to sweep the territory. Since it didn’t happen, therefore russia never planned to take over Ukraine.
  • russia doesn’t kidnap Ukrainian refugees and displace them in russia. It just looks like that.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Ukrainians started to receive such emails from suspicious addresses. UkrPoshta themselves debunked the whole sham. Their response: “russia’s post office is unhappy since UkrPoshta cut their ties and stopped cooperating and asked countries of the Universal Postal Union to stop working with russia’s postal services. All things russian, including postal stamps, is toxic. Such messages are yet another example of russian aggression. And with this mailing, obviously, the Russian Post, when it writes that all postal items of Ukrposhta will be sent through the Russian Post, is trying to regain its volumes somehow”.
  • Springmann is a well-known russia sympathizer. Four years ago, he got into a scandal when he posted a caricature on “friends of the USA,” in which he compared Ukraine with excrements. Using such “experts” might mean that russia is running out of ideas on how to push this narrative.
  • russia rocket strikes UAF positions, airports, fuel refineries. They also occupied Chornobyl NPP and Zaporizhya NPP. russian blitzkrieg wet dream went south because UAF fought back and keep on pushing russian invaders back where they came from. In addition, a combination of corruption and obsolete equipment make the russian army a poor excuse for a fart.
  • According to Mariupol City Council, russia displaced approximately 20-30 thousand Mariupol residents. . 90 thousand people were displaced from Kherson Oblast. According to Ukraine’s Ombudsman Ludmila Denisova, russian invaders illegally deported 439420 civilians, including 91673 children.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 14:00 on March 28

  • if russian invaders leave Kherson and Zaporizhya Oblasts, the threat to russia will return. The Northern-Crimean channel will be again blocked, and Zaporizhya NPP will again be under a threat of an accident.
  • russia will have to work for 30-40 years to clean people’s heads from nazi propaganda in Ukraine.
  • creation of puppet states on the occupied territories was necessary to guarantee russia’s safety.

And not – THE TRUTH:

  • russia occupied Kherson oblast, Kherson, and parts of Zaporizhya Oblast. These actions create an environment for a humanitarian catastrophe. As for Northern Crimean Channel, the Ukrainian Government ceased its water supply back when russia occupied Crimea in 2014. russian government was unable to find a solution for this for 8 years. And now they took it over by force. russian invaders captured Zaporizhya NPP and Energodar city and kept it under russian control for 21 days. ZNPP personnel can’t work properly and get rest. Because of that, there is a constant threat of nuclear accidents.
  • There was never any nazi propaganda in Ukraine. None of the Ukrainian Government officials ever expressed such views. Of course, just like in any other country, there are far-right groups in Ukraine. However, they are marginal at best. Propaganda of intolerance and nazism is a criminal offense in Ukraine.
  • russia has organized illegal faux referendums on occupied Ukrainian territory since 2014. None of them were held to any international standards. Each such faux referendum was done to justify russia’s actions formally. None of such faux referendum results are recognized in Ukraine and the rest of the world.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 16:00 on March 27

  • Any country is in danger if Ukrainian artillery is nearby.
  • The reason why Roman Leschenko, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food, resigned is due to empty State Reserve storage facilities and lack of strategic reserve.
  • russia’s defense ministry on their losses: 1 351 dead, 3 825 injured.
  • Ukraine uses phosphorus bombs in Donbas.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian propaganda alleges that either Poland or belarus are in danger because Ukraine might attack them. It is not true. russia can create casus belli for belarus to join the invasion. However, russia already uses belarus as a military asset for their ground and air troops, and they have already shelled belarus territory and tried to blame Ukraine for that. As for Poland, they realize that russia is the real threat who is trying to pull focus on Ukraine.
  • Roman Leschenko, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food, resigned due to health issues. He explained his situation on his Facebook page“I’m at war not just with our common enemy but also with a tough hereditary disease. My health is deteriorating. Because of that, I’m forced to resign from the minister position”.
  • russian invaders already lost 40 thousand troops. This figure includes dead, injured, and captured. As of March 27th, russian invaders got 16,6 thousand dead and counting.
  • Ukraine doesn’t use any banned weapons and does not violate international agreements. Unlike russia, which probably used phosphorus weapons in the Avdiyivka district.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 14:00 on March 27

  • Ukrainian doctors dismantle bodies of dead civilians and the russian military for organ harvesting for UAF purposes.
  • “Don’t be afraid to speak russian” posters started to appear in occupied parts of Luhansk oblast.
  • rosatom demands Ukrainian authorities bring back their employees as fast and safe as possible.
  • russian ministry of defense: Ukrainian Air Force and Anti-Air Units are entirely demolished.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Ukrainian laws prohibit organ harvesting without a patient’s consent. In addition, not every doctor is qualified to do that. Also, it makes no sense to perform organ harvesting on heavily damaged bodies of shelling victims.
  • Ukraine never had any limitations on using the russian language at home. The language law limited the use of the russian language in the press, radio, TV, and print media.
  • 11 rosatom employees are in Zaporizhya NPP because they came there with russian military without Ukraine’s Energoatom or ZNPP consent. Energoatom demands rosatom to leave ZNPP territory.
  • russian ministry of defense reports every day that the Ukrainian Air Force and Anti-Anti Units are gone. Meanwhile, Ukrainian Air Force and Anti-Air Units are hard at work shooting down russian planes and missiles. On March 26th, Ukrainian Anti-Air Units shot down 3 out of 4 rockets over Volyn. In addition, they shot down 1 plane and 12 drones.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 12:00 on March 27

  • UAF shells civilian infrastructure in Chornobaivka.
  • Ukrainian Gas Transfer System replenishes russian budget more than companies that refused to leave russian market.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian invaders lost the battle for Chornobaivka for the 11th time. So it is natural that their propaganda would try to find yet another excuse for their utter failures. There is no proof in claims that UAF shoots civilian infrastructure, but there are numerous proofs of russians shooting at civilian infrastructure everywhere they go. UAF is fighting the invading force.
  • Ukraine is not buying russian gas since 2015. Therefore, the Ukrainian Gas Transfer system is not generating any revenue for russia. In addition, European countries also stop buying russian gas. For example, Poland plans to stop using russian gas by 2023, some Lithuanian companies stopped buying russian gas.
  • Hungary never had any territorial claims for Zakarpattya. The whole Zakarpattya separatism narrative is one of the russian propaganda inventions. Unfortunately, it is widely spread in Ukraine, russia, and Hungary. It is part of russia’s attempts to discredit the Ukrainian State.
  • russian invaders plundered the hi-end Central Analytical Laboratory in Chornobyl. The laboratory did contain hazardous samples and also radionuclides. But it is a big stretch to consider this a proof of nuclear weapon development program. Inadequate handling of radioactive materials will primarily harm the occupiers who seized the station.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 12:00 on March 24

  • russia is not at war with Ukraine. If russia was at war with Ukraine, russia would’ve carpet-bombed the cities.
  • Europeans are appalled at the rudeness of Ukrainian refugees. It is a direct result of 8 years of nationalist propaganda in Ukraine.
  • US and EU wanted to use Ukraine as a base for their nuclear weapons aimed at russia. UK’s Minister of Defense seemingly confirmed that.
  • USA accusations of russia committing war crimes are baseless.

А тепер ПРАВДА

  • russia carpet bombs Mariupol. Even NATO confims that. Head of Luhansk Oblast Military Administration Serhiy Hayday previously stated that the russian military conducted carpet bombings of Luhansk Oblast residential housings.
  • russia tries to push the “rude Ukrainian refugees greedy to exploit European help” narrative for a couple of weeks. russia wants to discredit Ukrainian refugees in Europe. The whole “master race” narrative actually fits russia more. Coincidentally, that’s the same narrative Nazi Germany adored.
  • Nuclear weapons bases are banned in Ukraine. Meanwhile, russia actively threatens the world with nuclear weapons.
  • russia kills civilians, uses banned weapons, shoots at humanitarian convoys, conducts illegal mobilization on the occupied territories, displaces local residents, and creates ecological threats. These are some of russia’s recent war crimes.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 12:00 on March 23

  • Poland and USA planned a “denazification operation” in Ukraine. Proof: there were paratrooper regiments on Ukraine-Poland border.
  • peskov in CNN interview: “russian invaders don’t shell civilian infrastructure.”
  • russia never planned to shell Ukrainian chemical plants. It happens accidentally on purpose, which is completely different.
  • Poland will initiate the break-up of Ukraine. They will discuss it on March 24th at the NATO summit.
  • Louis Vuitton supports the russian invasion because their new jewelry collections use Z and V symbols.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • There were American paratroopers on the Ukraine-Poland border before the start of the russian invasion. However, their goal was to support NATO allies in case of russian aggression.
  • russia provides more and more evidence of their bombing of civilian objects every day. Last night they shelled vegetable storage and sausage factory in the Brovary district of Kyiv Oblast. У Чернігові розбомбили міст через Десну, яким рухались евакуаційні рейси та гуманітарна допомога. У Харкові вчора активізувалися атаки на житлові райони та історичний центр міста.
  • russian invaders damaged the 50-ton ammonia tank on Sumyhimporm factory on March 21th.
  • Poland never announced such plans. In fact, Poland is preparing itself for a possible russian invasion.
  • Louis Vuitton really presented jewelry with a symbol that resembles Z. However, the collection stylizes the brand letter L, and V. LVMH (with such brands as Louis Vuitton, Moët, Hennessy) announced that it would cease its operation in russia. There were also Louis Vuitton products empty shells videos in russia.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 19:00 on March 22

  • Zelenskiy intentionally kills Mariupol civilians. It is revenge on the pro-russian population.
  • Coronavirus spread investigation found a Ukrainian connection to the case.
  • Crimea State Duma MP predicts that Europe will be thankful for russia exposing Ukrainian biolaboratories.
  • illya kyva: nationalists led by Vitaly Klitschko plan a coup in the next two weeks.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • We already debunked the claim that in 2014 Mariupol “voted” to join “dnr” when it was taken over by Ukrainian nazi. That’s not what happened. The “referendum” was illegitimate and found no real support from Mariupol residents. Meanwhile, russia continues to destroy Mariupol. Just today, russian planes dropped two powerful bombs on the city. The city siege is led by Mikhail Mizintsev, one of the Russian commanders in the Syrian war. It was his order to bomb the maternity house, drama theater, and residential housings. Mizintsev sees military objects just like that boy sees dead people. The current priority is to evacuate Mariupol residents, but it is borderline impossible due to russians opening fire on civilians.
  • A couple of days ago we already predicted that russia would probably try to blame Ukraine for the coronavirus spread. To do that, russian propaganda propels the narrative about Ukrainian secret biolabs that study coronavirus and bats. However, the current theory of coronavirus origin is organic, and there is no solid proof for russian claims.
  • There was no biolaboratory expose whatsoever. The information about Ukrainian biolaboratories is open source. In addition, everybody knows what these laboratories are for. During the COVID-19 pandemic, these labs helped monitor the virus spread in Ukraine.
  • illya kyva is russian propaganda mouthpiece. For years he recited russian propaganda narratives like calling the Revolution of Dignity a “bloody coup” and War in the East a “civil conflict”. You can check out an extensive collection of kyva lying on our YouTube channel.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 18:00 on March 22

  • russian special operation is conducted by a professional army that uses cruise missiles that are very effective in precision strikes on military infrastructure and not civilian infrastructure. It is nationalists and UAF who shells Ukrainian civilian infrastructure.
  • Ukrainian schools militarize children. One of the textbooks for 11th grade calls russia an occupant and aggressor.
  • Biological weapon that was developed in Ukraine was designed to affect slav female reproductive systems.
  • Kyiv ordered the Mariupol military to leave the city disguised as civilians.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • There are conscripts in the so-called professional army. Even the russian ministry of defense admits that despite simultaneous claims of otherwise. it is russian invaders who destroy Ukrainian infrastructure. They already demolished 15 thousand kilometers of roads, 1600 residential housings, approximately 400 schools, 36 hospitals, 77 administrative buildings, and even 8 churches. Total damages sum up to almost $63 billion.
  • Ukraine declared russian an aggressor in 2018. It is a stretch to call a simple statement of fact a militarization. Meanwhile, russia actually plans to involve child soldiers – as stated by Ukrainian Intelligence.
  • It is impossible to develop an ethnic-centric biological weapon. The whole anti-russian biological weapon contradicts their own “Ukrainians and russians are one people” narrative.
  • Ukrainian army defends Mariupol and helps evacuate civilians. Azov regiments (russian propaganda’s favorite targets) destroyed 4 tanks and a couple of armored vehicles.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 17:00 on March 22

  • russian invaders’ address to Kharkiv and Kharkiv Oblast residents: “There is no war between russians and Ukrainians. There is a special operation against nazi, oligarchs and all the traitors who poorly treated local residents for years”.
  • Avakov disrupted the Ukrainian propaganda narrative by saying that over 17 thousand had died while General Staff claims that it is only 15 thousand.
  • russia goes to another stage of the war with the primary goal being saving as many civilians as they can. They do it by killing them.
  • Zelenskiy promises a referendum on the “denazification” and “demilitarization” of Ukraine. S

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian is at war with Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. As for nazism – it was never really widespread in Ukraine, unlike russia. Far-right politicians are heavily marginalized in Ukrainian society. There were never any “radical” far-rights in the Ukrainian government or parliament. Since 2014 there weren’t any far-right political parties in the Ukrainian Parliament. Lack of names and proof regarding such things is yet another reason why these are simply baseless claims of russian propaganda.
  • It is hard to verify Avakov’s words as he doesn’t state his sources and has a history of manipulating facts. We trust UAF General Staff when it comes to providing official casualty stats. However, it is essential to note that it is hard to count russian casualties in the active warzone.
  • russian invaders didn’t even try to save civilians. But they are very skillful at killing civilians. 3000 dead due to Mariupol shelling. It is an approximation as there are probably more dead under the rubble. russian invaders shell residential housings, schools, hospitals – they call them “military bases” to justify their actions.
  • Zelenskiy said: “The referendum will be the final resolution in the negotiations between Ukraine and Russia.” He referred to safety guarantees, occupied Donbas and Crimea. He didn’t mention “denazification” or “demilitarization.” Both terms are used by russian propaganda exclusively as casus belli justification for war.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 16:00 on March 22

  • peskov: russia doesn’t create any special structure on the territories that were “freed” from “nationalists.”
  • On March 16th, Ukrainian nationalists shot 10 Chernihiv residents standing in the queue to get bread.
  • Due to martial law, defense work is being organized in Odessa. As a confirmation, an extract from Order №101 of March 16, 22 of the Chief of the Odessa OVA Maksym Marchenko is allegedly added to the report.
  • Ukraine doesn’t arrange any humanitarian corridors from Berdyanks.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian tries to establish occupational government on the occupied territories. They tried to set up the new mayor of Melitopol (conveniently, it is an MP from OPZZh) after kidnapping the real one. They did the same thing when they occupied Crimea and select Donetsk and Luhansk Oblast regions.
  • It is was russian invaders who opened fire on the queue to get bread. Chernihiv Oblast Prosecutor’s Office confirmed it. “North” operational command clarified that it was done with heavy artillery, probably “Grads.”
  • Odesa Regional Military Administration states that the Head of the Odesa State Administration didn’t issue such orders. “We publish all official orders on our official website and announce them on the official Facebook page,” the statement said.
  • Humanitarian corridors from Berdyansk to Zaporizhya are active every day. However, russian invaders try to disrupt them and open fire on civilians.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 18:00 on March 20

  • Forest walks are banned in Kyiv Oblast because Territorial Defense killed several civilians there.
  • Rating Group survey that says 93% of Ukrainians believe in victory is incorrect because it was conducted in Western Ukraine with no active warzones.
  • If russian invaders enter Sumy – UAF will poison civilians with chlorine and ammonia.
  • Ukrainian nazi captured Mariupol in 2014 despite the city having a large turnout on dnr faux referendum.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Forest walks are banned in Kyiv Oblast due to forest fire threats. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=332859035535303&id=100064336284967.
  • Rating Group survey was conducted on the entire Ukraine territory, excluding occupied Crimea and regions of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts. It covered citizens from 18 years old. West and South Ukraine got 95% beliving in victory, Central Ukraine – 94%, Eastern Ukraine – 85%.
  • UAF doesn’t use any banned weapons while russians use them all the time. Because of that, there is a reason to believe that when russia says something about Ukraine using chemical weapons, it means russia might use it. Because russia’s gonna russia.
  • First, that dnr faux referendum was illegal. Second, the organizers didn’t even had the voter lists because they had no access to the voter registry. There were 4 voting spots, and people could vote without any IDs with no secrecy of voting. The turnout was around 30% of possible voters.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 16:00 on March 20

  • American political technologists made the “Ukraine Antirussia” Project for years.
  • Azov regiment nazi intentionally destroyed a pool in the center of Mariupol because they knew civilians were hiding there. So they shot with russian bombs dropped from russian planes flying from russian territory.
  • Priests from Ukraine East Orthodox Church travel to Donbas to kill civilians.
  • Kidnapping people from Mariupol and sending them to russia is a solution to save them from the humanitarian catastrophe created by russian invaders.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian propaganda tries their damnedest to justify their war against Ukraine. The “Ukraine Antirussia” project is one of the narratives they try to push even though there is no proof and the whole narrative doesn’t make any sense. If you think about it, it is russia that turns Ukraine into the opposite of russia.
  • Yesterday, russian invaders dropped the bomb on the art school, which sheltered approximately 400 people, including women, children, and the elderly. According to Pentagon research, russian aircraft conduct over 200 flights over Ukraine a day. About a 100 of these are on Mariupol. In addition, they use artillery, multiple rocket launchers, and tanks. russian warships also shell Mariupol.
  • Ukraine finalized the creation of its own East Orthodox Church four years after the start of the war in Donbas and Crimea occupation. However, Ukrainian East Orthodox Church, under the moscow patriarchy, decided against joining Ukrainian Church. Even more so, they actively try to discredit it. moscow patriarchy calls Ukrainian Church “schismatic.”. However, it is the russian church started the schism – they cut their ties with Constantinople due to Ukrainian Church getting autocephaly.
  • russian invaders who displace Mariupol residents into russia confiscate their mobile phones and Ukrainian documents. Instead, some Mariupol residents get occupation documents, while the fate of the others remains unknown.

Latest THREATS, PROVOCATIONS and DISINFO of russia as of 18:00 on March 19

  • Ukraine shelled center of Mariupol with Tochka U rockets. “Fortunately,” russian anti-air units took over these rockers and answered with Iskander strikes.
  • Nazi in Kharkiv opened fire on the humanitarian help distribution spot. They also shot civilians in Severodonetsk.
  • 85% of Mariupol destruction is done by Azov. Azov troopers flee from Mariupol under the civilian guise. That’s why russian invaders open fire on civilians.
  • Mariupol is “the heart” of “dnr”.
  • Instead of cleaning up the rubble of the demolished buildings, people made a Ukrainian coat of arms out of flowers.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Ukrainian authorities didn’t report any Mariupol bombings with Tochka U. Only russian media reported it. russian invaders shelled the city and then tried to blame UAF for doing that.
  • Ukrainians, whom russia keeps calling nazis, don’t shoot at humanitarian help distribution spots. They just keep on blaming everyone else for their atrocities. In Kharkiv, civilians can get humanitarian help in Ukrposhta and Nova Poshta post offices. There are also Ukrzaliznytsya evacuation trains. It is russian invaders who shell Severodonetsk. Despite that, there are still active green corridors. Today, 160, excluding those on their vehicles, managed to evacuate the city.
  • russia’s at it again: in reality – it is russian invaders who destroyed 80-90% of the city. russians try to blame everyone else for what they do. That’s why they target Azov. However, Azov troopers stay to protect the city from russian invaders.
  • Mariupol is a Ukrainian city. There are armed clashes in the city, but it is not occupied.
  • the last time russian invaders shot at Kyiv was on March 18th. However, the rocket was shot down, and its remains fell on the Podil district. National Emergency Service handled the situation. They did the same on March 17th in the Darnitsa district, and March 15h after Svyatoshin district bombings.

  • Europe’s fight against all things russian is borderline racist. Except russian is not race.
  • Ukraine wants to limit access to Telegram because they are losing the information war.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russia started getting sanctions after declaring “lnr/dnr” independent. After russia invaded Ukraine – sanctions doubled and tightened. Neither Collective West nor Ukraine ever planned to attack russia. Meanwhile, russia tries to justify its actions by saying Ukraine was threatening russia.
  • russian invaders do everything they can to harm Mariupol residents. They go as far as to put white armlets on Mariupol residents so that UAF would think it is russian military under civilian disguise.
  • belarus is russia’s puppet state. Just recently, lukashenko stated that belarus would want to get nuclear weapons back from russia if there were nuclear weapons near belarus borders – “in Poland, Lithuania, or Ukraine.” Similar statements were made by the head of belarussian Ministry of External Affairs, vladimir makey, “we consider locating nuclear weapons in belarussia – it is one of the possible responses to NATO actions in Poland.” Now, lukashenko contradicts himself and says that belarus will never have any nuclear weapons.
  • EU sanctions, russian products boycott, foreign companies leaving russian market is not racism by any classification. It is a limitation put on a country threatening the entire world with its ruthless disregard of everything. The whole “antirussian” term is used by russian propaganda exclusively. No one was turning Ukraine into “anti-russia.” russia got the first batch of sanctions due to Crimea occupation in 2014 and starting the war in Donbas.
  • There are no Telegram access limitations in Ukraine. However, there are lots of russian propaganda and fake news channels in Telegram. We monitor them and create these reports. Because of an immense amount of russian fake news propaganda – we need to check information from russian or pro-russian as they represent the enemy.

  • russian invaders do everything they can to disrupt evacuation operations from Mariupol and prevent humanitarian help from getting into the city. As of today, Ukraine managed to evacuate over 35 thousand Mariupol residents.

  • Training air raid alarms are actually to test their technical state. There is no alarm for some objects captured by radars. People could not hide because the person in charge of turning on the alarms didn’t turn it on.
  • National Bank of Ukraine asks citizens to donate cryptocurrency to support UAF.
  • putin during his speech in luzhniki: “Crimea citizens made the right choice by establishing a hard barrier with neonazi. russia did a lot to drag Crimea out of its miserable state when it was under Ukrainian control.”
  • Ukrainian military promised to destroy Volnovakha. In the meantime, “dnr” “attempts” to “establish” “normal” “life” there.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Training air raid alarms are banned during wartime. The alarm is turned on when any flying objects are identified, no matter the size. The siren is under the command center control, working around the clock.
  • National Bank of Ukraine doesn’t send emails to citizens and doesn’t accept donations to crypto-wallets. There are two such fake addresses [email protected] та [email protected]
  • Crimea residents didn’t make any free choice during a faux referendum in Crimea. It was a show. russia established an oppressive regime with numerous rights violations, the destruction of freedom of speech, freedom of movement, right to work, and many other rights. russia also arranged an illegal mobilization and expanded its military presence on the peninsula.
  • Pavlo Kyrylenko, Head of Donetsk State Administration: Volnovakha is destroyed. It was the first big city that russian invaders managed to capture in Donetsk Oblast. Before the 2014 war, the city had somewhere around 100 thousand residents. The battle for the city started in late February. On February 28th, UAF managed to push back russians outside the city, despite Grad and airstrikes. There was an evacuation campaign during the next two weeks. russian invaders consider taking over Volnovakha as one of the steps in capturing Mariupol, which will allow russia to create a ground corridor between Crimea and ORDLO.

  • There is a long-running pathogen spread via bats research program in Kharkiv. The project was backed by the US in Ukraine and Georgia in October 2019, right before the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Mariupol refugees say that UAF opened fire on evacuation corridors. Because of that, people who flee Mariupol don’t want to go through Ukraine-controlled territory. Ukrainian Government left Mariupol behind.
  • Azov Regiment bombed the Drama Theater building. Or, The Drama Theater was bombed because Azov troopers were hiding there. Or both.
  • US and EU have defaulted on their debt to russia.
  • lukashenko: if Ukraine doesn’t stop provoking belarus, Minsk will retaliate. They’ll probably unleash Boo.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • the russia’s current idea is to “prove” that COVID-19 was developed in Ukraine in russian biolaboratories. Which is quite a flight of fantasy if you look at the facts. First, scientists from all over the world more or less agree that COVID-19 is most certainly of natural origin. Second, Ukrainian biolaboratories are under the control of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health. Their goal is to reduce the pathogen dangers and not to spread them. Some laboratories took part in identifying such viruses as SARS-CoV-2.
  • There are 350-400 thousand people under a blockade in Mariupol. As of 13.03.2022 – 2358 dead. City Administration states that the actual number might be 1,5-2 times higher because it is still unknown how many people are under ruins. 80-90% of the city is demolished. There are no buildings without damage. It is a textbook illustration of the “russian world,” “denazification,” “demilitarization” russia’s committing in Ukraine. The evacuation corridor from Mariupol to Zaporizhya is currently active. But constant fire from russian invaders make it hard to get through. russian invaders caused a humanitarian catastrophe in Mariupol because they couldn’t fight UAF. So instead, they started shelling civilians and blocking humanitarian aid. It is pathetic.
  • russian propaganda can’t decide which version of the Drama Theater bombing they like the most. Either Azov bombed it, or russians bombed it because Azov was there. That’s the same narrative they used when they bombed the Maternity House in Mariupol a couple of weeks ago. The fact of the matter is that russian invaders shell civilian infrastructure and kill innocent civilians. The russians dropped a bomb on the Drama Theater after they found out that there were lots of civilians in there. Fortunately, the shelter was strong enough to stand the strike, and by morning – people were coming out of the ruins.
  • US and EU had frozen assets of russian companies, oligarchs, and the likes. This doesn’t mean US and EU default on russia’s debts. In fact, it is russia that’s on the verge of default and economic collapse. russia had managed to pay $117 million of debt. But, according to Bloomberg, russia will have enough money to pay debts until May.
  • Ukraine is not provoking belarus. In fact, it is russia that creates one provocation after another to rile up belarussia.

  • Crimea was under heavy sanctions after the “referendum,” aka occupation. However, during 8 years of occupation – life was better than during 23 years as part of Independent Ukraine.
  • Ukrainian Armed Forces gave Kahovka Hydroelectric Power Plant without a fight.
  • Ukrainian Authorities fled from Volnovakha and didn’t even inform residents about evacuation.
  • There is no reason for the russian economy to default.
  • Zelenskiy is hiding in the basement near the Polish border. He was secretly transferred to meet with Czech, Slovenian and Polish representatives.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • The so-called “referendum” has nothing to do with “free choice” russia likes to call it. The decision to hold a “referendum” was made at a meeting of the Verkhovna Rada of Crimea on February 27, 2014, while the building was captured by russian military without ID signs. Later on, putin admitted that these were the russian military. There were no journalists during a meeting, and MPs were voting under the gun barrel. It is unknown where there was a quorum for voting. russia implemented an oppressive regime in Crimea with heavy repressions against Crimean Tatars who stand against Crimea occupation. Crimean Tatar people suffer from frequent illegal searches. Leaders of their communities are exiled from the peninsula, Crimean Tatar media is closed, and their government is qualified as an “extremist organization.” russia conscripted nearly 28 thousand Crimean residents into the russian armed forces. Instead of upholding international norms, russia turned Crimea into a military base with aircraft, missiles, and ammunition prepared for further invasion. Crimea’s occupation allowed russia to strengthen its presence in the Black Sea, Azov Sea, and Kerch Strait.
  • russia occupied Kahovka HPP on February 24th. It is pointless to talk about “giving up” the location given the fact that local authorities were not prepared for the invasion that started at 5:00.
  • it is russian invaders who shell Volnovakha and don’t let residents evacuate.
  • Fitch lowered russia’s credit rating down to “С.” This means that russia’s default is imminent. Moody’s also lowered russia’s credit rating down to “C,” which is yet another proof that default is imminent. S&P Global Ratings gave russia a “CCC-” credit rating.
  • Zelenskiy had debunked claims that he was not in Kyiv on numerous occasions.

  • UAF supposedly lost 34672 personnel, plus 23490 injured і 13,3k missing. National Guard lost 15000. Territorial Defense lost 20 thousand and 30 thousand wounded. russian fake news media claims this is Red Cross, burial centers, and Ministry of Defense information sent directly to Zelensky.
  • Ukrainian Air Force never shot down any russian aircraft. Except for those they already shot down. But it doesn’t count, so it is fair game.
  • If not for russia’s timely reaction, UAF would’ve done scorched earth on “lnr/dnr” cities.
  • russian invaders are not going to capture any cities. But not because they can’t. The goal of the invasion is to start a negotiation between russia and Ukraine.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Red Cross never gave any data on UAF, National Guard, Territorial Defense losses. russian fake news media posted a lot of stuff about that, albeit with dubious and questionable sources on this side of fiction. In addition, if one of the purported sources in Ministry of Defense data is sent straight to Zelenskiy, then how is it in russian fake news media access? It is reasonable to think that these russian fake news media reports are full-on fiction or heavily manipulated hearsay.
  • Ukrainian Air Force shoots down a lot of russian planes. For example, on the night of March 1st, there was an airfight between two UAF MiG-29 and two russian Su-35C in Kyiv Oblast. russian planes went down as they should. On March 7th, UAF Air Force shot down 2 enemy planes over Kyiv.
  • Ukraine never planned an offensive on Donbas. This is russia’s casus belli. It was russia who situated 140k military across the border and threatened to invade for months. The whole narrative is a tool for russia to depict Ukraine as warmongers looking for a reason to draw blood. We’ve already covered it many times:
  • If russia is not going to occupy any Ukrainian cities, then what are they doing when they are trying to occupy Mariupol, Volnovakha, Kherson, Energodar, and other cities? Why did russian invaders attack Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, Kyiv, and other cities? russia indeed tries to facilitate negotiations, but they do it by using banned weapons and killing civilians.

  • On the third week of the war, Ukrainian propaganda found out that there were russians and russian-speaking populations in the Ukrainian cities. And now they are using this fact to blame russian invaders for shelling the russian population in Ukraine.
  • Victoria Nuland admitted that there are US biolaboratories in Ukraine.
  • UAF kidnapped a UN representative in Kharkiv.
  • Hungarian population of Ukraine started talking about rejoining Hungary/
  • There’s an illegal organ trade in Ukraine. The Ukrainian Government entered an agreement with local doctors to transfer the organs of the injured to Europe without their consent.
  • UAF General Staff reports that there are only 16 shot-down planes, not even 49. Because of that, The Ghost of Kyiv couldn’t shoot down 50 planes.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • russian propaganda mixes “russian population” and “russian-speaking population” to prove their point. Ukraine never denied its existence.
  • Victoria Nuland never said that there are US laboratories in Ukraine. Her words were taken out of context. “Secret US biolaboratories in Ukraine” is yet another russian propaganda myth. There is no proof of such things in Ukraine. The USA has helped to modernize Ukrainian laboratories since 2005. The goal is to upgrade research methods to prevent infectious diseases. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, these labs monitored the COVID-19 disease cycle. The United States has invested over $200 million for 46 laboratories and medical institutions’ development during the cooperation period. None of them work on any chemical or biological weapons. The USA initiated a chemical weapon development prevention program while USSR was developing chemical weapons. After the USSR collapse – leftovers of this program were left in Ukraine. US chemical weapon prevention program aims at keeping these contagious materials safe and used only for scientific purposes. This program was also active in russian laboratories up until 2014.
  • UAF didn’t kidnap any UN representatives in Kharkiv. According to Counterdisinformation Center, the UN itself had denied these claims.
  • It is not the first year when russian propaganda used the narrative about the Hungarian population of Ukraine wanting to join Hungary. They do it to discredit the territorial unity of Ukraine and emphasize that there are numerous separatist movements in Ukraine. Such actions are treason according to Ukrainian legislation. The perpetrators can get jailed for life.
  • Illegal organ trade is a long-running russian propaganda narrative. This time they are using it in the context of many injured people whose organs are suitable for the illegal organ trade. However, the Ukrainian organ transplant system is highly regulated, and there is no way to get somebody’s organs without their written consent.
  • russian invaders lost 81 airplanes during the war. It is approximately a quarter of those prepared for the invasion.

  • It was a Ukrainian anti-air missile and not a russian bomb that exploded over Kurenivka (Kyiv). UAF anti-air missile, not russian missile, blew up the residential housings on the Lobanovskiy Prospect on February 26th.
  • Ukrainian Government had been collecting Slav biomaterials to create biological weapons. They did it with the US’ help.
  • Ukrainian provocateurs called “dnr” women to start protesting near the government building in Donetsk. And then, they opened fire on that district with Tochka U.
  • Ukrainian pro-russian activists were so scared during 8 years of “oppression” that even now, in the “liberated” cities, they are still afraid to express their political views.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Ukrainian Anti-Air Unit shot down a rocket over Kyiv today. Parts of the rocket had fallen on the Kurenivka district. 1 dead, 6 injured. The trolleybus with no passengers is totally demolished. On February 26th, it was russian invaders whose missile blew a hole through a residential housing complex on the Lobanovsky Prospect.
  • Ukrainian Ministry of Health, USA, and even the President already explained that Ukraine wasn’t developing any biological weapons in the biolaboratories. Even MSU researchers had stated that it is impossible to create an ethnic-centric biological weapon.
  • Ukrainian Ministry of Defense had debunked claims of UAF involvement in shelling Donetsk city center with Tochka U.
  • Ukraine had been fighting with russian propaganda and disinformation for over 8 years and counting. But it is hard to call an “oppression” when an entire pro-russian parliamentary faction is fully active. So the whole “oppression” just doesn’t make much sense.

  • Member of the Bundestag Sahra Wagenknecht stated that supplying Ukraine with weapons only prolongs “the crisis.”
  • 2018 measles epidemic started due to anti-russian policies. Ukraine disposed of the entire Priorix vaccine only because it was quality tested in russia. Україна утилізувала всю вакцину КПК “Пріорікс” лише тому, що її якість перевіряли у росії.
  • Ukrainians shot cluster bombs on Donetsk with Tochka U.
  • UAF sabotaged the Avdiyivka coke fuel plant and didn’t let anyone deal with the fire.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Sahra Wagenknecht is known for her pro-russian position regarding the russian invasion. She already called the russian invasion in Donbas a “civil war” led by “neo-nazis”. She also pushes the russian propaganda narrative of “fratricidal war”. In addition, she refuses to recognize the russian military presence in Donbas despite the opposite proof from OSCE, international investigators, testimonies of the russian military. She and several other members of the Die Linke party are included in the Peacekeeper database due to their attempts to legalize Crimea occupation and “lnr/dnr”.
  • First, Ukraine uses the Belgian Priorix vaccine against measles. Second, the measles epidemic is the result of anti-vax fake news hysteria and not some anti-russian policies.
  • It is russia who shoots Donetsk with Tochka U, not UAF. Also, Tochka U is not compatible with cluster bomb munition. Furthermore, cluster bombs are banned by international laws. But it doesn’t stop russia from using them.
  • Coke fuel plant in Avdiyivka was shelled with russian Grads. In addition, they damaged the gas pipeline, nearby school, and residential housings. Information on civilian casualties is currently being clarified.

  • UAF opened fire on all humanitarian corridors on March 12th. They did that from russian positions, dressed like russians and firing from russian weapons.
  • Ukrainian nazi are burgling and killing civilians in Mariupol. They also use civilians as human shields.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Mykhailo Podolyak: “Israel, just like any other country-mediator, definitely doesn’t recommend Ukraine to agree on any russia’s conditions. It is impossible from military and political standpoints. On the contrary, Israel asks russia to look at things more realistically”.
  • Unlike russian invaders, UAF actually tries to save civilians at all cost, while russians shoot civilians on sight. Today, russian invaders shelled Popasna with phosphorous bombs banned by Geneva Convention. Yesterday, we did a piece about paragraphs of the Geneva Convention broken by russia.
  • 13 thousand people were evacuated through humanitarian corridors on March 13th. At the same time, evacuations from Zaporizhya, Energodar, Vorzel, Irpin, and Kozarovychi were made impossible due to russian invaders opening fire on humanitarian corridors.
  • As of now, 1582 civilians died due to the Mariupol blockade.

  • Western partners “abandoned” Ukraine: Spain provided навчальні муляжі for Instalaza C-90 and Alcotаn-100 grenade launchers.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • No government official, including the National Emergency Service of Ukraine, had reported on the forest fires in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone. Ukraine’s Head of Intelligence already warned about russia attempting a provocation in the Chornobyl NPP Exclusion Zone. There are two possible scenarios: one of the features starts fires in the irradiated forests, the other involves shelling radioactive waste storage. They plan to blame Ukraine for doing that.
  • None of Ukrainian US partners ever stated that Ukraine is an “unviable state.” Quite the opposite, today, President Joe Biden signed a decree allocating $200 million to Ukraine for military needs.
  • russian invaders are preparing a mock referendum in Kherson. To do that, they call Kherson Oblast Council MPs and try to coerce them into collaboration. Meanwhile, Kherson residents come out to protest russian occupation every day.
  • russian propaganda tries playing mind games with Kherson residents by perpetuating such fake narratives as: “Kherson was abandoned,” “Ukraine doesn’t need Kherson,” “Ukraine left Kherson without means for existence” and so on and so forth.
  • Once again – there were no such reports. Spain plans to provide Ukraine with at least 1370 anti-tank grenade launchers and 700 thousand units of ammunition for assault rifles and machine guns.

  • russia’s new take on biolaboratories: the US conducted inhumane biological experiments on Ukrainians. It was essentially something similar to the MK Ultra Monarch program, which was based on the nazi human experimentation program. The proof – the growing number of alcohol- and drug-addicted people in russia-occupied Donbas.
  • Iron dome over russia is the West’s goal. Because of that, YouTube blocks russian fake news media, while Instagram marks them as russian fake news media.
  • Zuckerberg – XXI century hitler, because Meta approves violent messages regarding russians and belarussians.
  • russian invaders share their rations with civilians in Chernihiv oblast.
  • Zelenskiy is lying about sending humanitarian convoys to Mariupol because residents haven’t got any humanitarian help. And it is not because russian invaders keep on shelling the city so that no humanitarian aid can get through.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • As we have already repeated time and time – all those russian biolaboratory, biological-chemical-nuclear weapon-related news are nothing more than baseless claims and fantasies. The threat is that when russia accuses Ukraine of something, it probably means they are going to try it out themselves.
  • Western countries implement sanctions against russia due to their invasion of Ukraine. However, russia voluntarily imposes a lot of limitations on itself. It is roskomnadzor who limited access to Facebook and Twitter and not the other way, Instagram closes on March 14th. The decision will cut over 80 million users from the platform.
  • Meta allows violent messages regarding russians and belarussians on Facebook and Instagram in the russo-Ukrainian War context. In its comment, the company, explained that this is only allowed for Ukrainian users. In addition, this permit allows people to use words for self-defense in times of war.
  • Today, russian invaders destroyed Hotel “Ukraine” in Chernihiv. In addition, russian invaders keep on bombing civilian infrastructure with artillery and airstrikes. Chernihiv is left without electricity, gas, water, and heating this morning. City services are repairing the infrastructure to restore the supply.
  • The humanitarian corridors to and from Mariupol are currently active. However, russian invaders open fire on the convoys and don’t let civilians get out of the city or supplies to arrive in the city.

  • NATO turned the civil conflict into a full-blown war of the West against russia.
  • USA and EU started to rehabilitate fascism.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • The whole “rehabilitating fascism” thing is yet another russia’s attempt to justify its invasion. None of the Ukrainian Officials ever expressed allegiance to fascist ideology. Like any other country, there are far-right radicals in Ukraine, but they are marginal at best and don’t have much influence in Ukrainian politics or society. Propaganda of intolerance, and propaganda of nazism is banned in Ukraine.
  • There was never a civil conflict in Ukraine. russia attacked Ukraine in 2014 and occupied parts of Donbas and Crimea. Then, on February 24th, they started a full-on invasion in Ukraine.
  • Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Ministry of Health state that there are no such laboratories in Ukraine, and the whole narrative is disinformation. Ken Psaki already called russia’s claims “pointless”. In addition, russia’s claim about an “ethnic-centric biological weapon” is impossible to make. Most of pathogens and bacteria in Ukrainian laboratories are actually common microorganisms.
  • On March 10th, russian invaders shelled the Institute of Physics and Technology in Kharkiv.

  • Ukraine in the EU is just Ukrainian propaganda fake news.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • Do you need yet another explanation that what is going on now is russian invasion and not “maidan” or “special operation”?
  • Ukrainians never organized any concentration camps in “lnr/dnr”. russians did that. During 8 years of war in Donbas – there was an infamous “Isolation” concentration camp. In 2014 Secret Service of Ukraine had published a concentration camp map of Donbas.
  • russian invaders use cluster bombs. National Emergency Service found such left by russian invaders in Mykolaiv Oblast.

  • lavrov: Ukraine was stealing russian gas.
  • lavrov part Deux: there was an extremist Azov battalion in the maternity hospital, not pregnant women.
  • Ukrainian nationalists killed 14 thousand pro-russian Donbas residents during 8 years of war.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • if you follow russian fake news media, it seems like russia is going to blame Ukraine for creating and spreading COVID-19. The whole “expose” russia is trying to pull off about biolaboratories in Ukraine is actually open-source data. The goal of these biolabs is to reduce the threat of infectious diseases. According to the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, all Ukrainian laboratories have one general function – indicate and identify causes for infectious diseases with epidemic potential or international notoriety according to international medical regulations.
  • National Emergency Service of Ukraine actually managed to defuse a FAB-250 bomb. There is video proof of that on their official channel. Overall, just during March 9 Загалом впродовж 9 березня ДСНС виконали 22 заявки з Чернігова щодо розмінування. Тим часом росія обстрілює житлові райони міст України зокрема із забороненої зброї.
  • Ukraine stopped buying russian gas in November 2015 and never stole any russian gas. First of all, it is technically challenging to pull that off, given the fact that Gas Transfer System Operators monitor the gas transfer and its quantity. Second, since 2015 Ukraine has bought gas from European countries owned by European countries. It can be of any origins because, unlike russia, European countries use gas as a political pressure tool.
  • As for Mariupol, lavrov recites russian propaganda narrative. The maternity hospital wasn’t empty: we knew that the attack resulted in 17 injured by evening. In the morning, we found out that 3 people had died, including 1 child. the whole lavrov statement means that russian invaders intentionally opened fire on the maternity hospital. lavrov also cynically called photos of injured women in labor “manipulative” because they don’t show “the other side.” .
  • During 8 years of war, 14 thousand people have died. But, not all of them were civilians, and they wouldn’t die if russia hadn’t attacked Ukraine. According to a UN report: during the period 14.04.2014 to 31.12.2022, 14,2-14,4 thousand people have died during a war in Donbas. Only 3,4 thousand of them are civilians, including 152 children. 81,4% civilians died on “lnr/dnr” territory, 16,3% on Ukraine-controlled territory, 2,3% on the separation line.

  • According to russian propaganda, it is dangerous not only to express your own opinion in Ukraine but also to remain silent instead of approving the “nazi regime.”
  • UAF lacks personnel.

  • Ukraine disallows foreign students to evacuate.

And now – THE TRUTH:

  • UAF, unlike russian invaders, don’t use civilians as human shields. UAF protects civilians at all costs instead. It is russia who shells and bombs civilians, civilian infrastructure, and even humanitarian corridors. For example, today, russian invaders disrupted evacuation from Bucha and blocked 50 buses with civilians.
  • There is no freedom of speech limitations in Ukraine. On the contrary, the Ukrainian Constitution bans censorship, and enforcing it is a crime. Meanwhile, in russia, there is no freedom of speech, and just recently, russian authorities blocked access to Facebook and Twitter.
  • Mobilization in Ukraine takes place based on a Presidential Decree. People with military experience are first in line for mobilization. Mobilization has taken place all over Ukraine for 90 days since the decree. Meanwhile, in russia, hidden mobilization is used to compensate for immense casualties.
  • Due to russian invaders’ thoughtless actions, Chornobyl NPP’s power supply is down. Currently, Chornobyl NPP is on diesel-generators which will last for 48 hours. If the power supply is not restored in 48 hours, the cooling system for the spent nuclear fuel facility will turn off, and this will lead to a radiation leak.

  • russia kept ignoring most of the Minsk Accords for 8 years. That was why the situation on Donbas was left unresolved and kept getting worse as time went by.

Casual use of russian was never under any limitations. Interestingly, russian propaganda never gives any examples of what they call “physical extermination” of those “against Bandera.” The lack of facts means these are baseless claims.
  • Numerous investigations concluded that Malaysian Boeing MH-17 was shot down by a rocket from Buk missile system owned by the 53rd missile brigade stationed near Kursk, russia.

    – the quality of the face mask: deepfake video can’t do swift movements and textured faces (wrinkles, stubble, beard, deepfake can’t handle eye movement well);

All of that is blatant lies. Now it is time for the truth.

The Truth

Key russian provocations and disinformation as of 25.02.2022 02:00

  • russian media started using the term “former Ukraine” in their “news” reports.
  • Fake news piece that claimed, according to “CNN sources” – Moscow is going to shell Kyiv at 3:00.

  • There were fake news reports that the Secret Service of Ukraine will tap Ukrainian phones, listen to conversations and monitor messenger services.

All this are blatant lies. Now – let’s get to The Truth

The Truth

  • Ukraine is a sovereign, independent, democratic, social, legal state. These are facts. putin and his cronies can make up their euphemisms all they want – it doesn’t reflect the actual state of things.
  • We haven’t found a CNN news piece or video that claimed that russians are going to shell Kyiv at 3:00.
  • UkrEnergo denied the claim about electronic devices and electricity. Ukrainian electricity infrastructure operates as usual and will continue to do so. No one needs to turn off anything, and no one turns it on at night.
  • The Secret Service of Ukraine doesn’t tap conversations of Ukrainians, whether it’s mobile or messenger. In fact, this fake news piece has been making rounds since 2017 via russian or russian-affiliated media due to the so-called “Yarovaya law.” For example, in early 2022, the very same message circulated in the context of Kazakhstan protests. Interestingly, the text was pretty much the same. In Ukraine, these messages started to spread a couple of days before the russian invasion. Now, these messages reach their peak circulation.

  • A few hours ago, Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov explained that government officials are not leaving their jobs. However, according to the security protocol, as well as for urgent meetings, it is necessary to change the location.
  • The Armed Forces of Ukraine are currently fighting fierce battles for Melitopol, Hostomel, defending Kharkiv, Kherson, Sumy and all cities and borders of Ukraine. Russian soldiers destroyed 6 posts and fired on 32 civilian targets in Ukraine.
  • Russian troops have suffered large losses: about 3,200 killed, about 500 units destroyed, 2 battalions left the equipment and left the positions on foot – said a former adviser to former Interior Minister Arsen Avakov Mykhailo Apostol.
