The President’s Office denied yet another Russian fake that Ukraine was allegedly involved in the shelling of Zaporizhzhia.
Serhii Leshchenko, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, commented on the fake Russian Federation’s alleged involvement of Ukraine before the shelling of Zaporizhzhia and declared that such tactics are typical for Russian propaganda.
He stated this during the briefing.
“Russia uses a typical tactic, the so-called false flag operation, that is, when Russia itself commits a crime, and then accuses Ukraine of this crime. This was the case in Buch, and in Kramatorsk, during the attack on the railway station, and in Chaplin, and in Mariupol theater. Nothing changes, only the number of victims increases,” said the adviser to the head of the OP.
He emphasized that another political fake of the Russian Federation is the pseudo-referendums held in the occupied territories of Ukraine.
“The “referendum” itself was a profanation from the first to the last minute, even the video footage released by the Russian propaganda itself indicates this,” Leshchenko emphasized.
We will remind Russian troops struck on September 30 on a motorcade southeast of the city of Zaporizhia, as a result of which 25 civilians died. The ammunition was most likely a long-range Russian anti-aircraft missile used to strike a ground target.
