The Center for Countering Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council has released a fresh review of Russian misinformation, as well as fake and manipulative reports circulated by the enemy on May 28.
The Center posted the list on Telegram, as seen by Ukrinform.
Russian Ambassador to the United States, Mr Antonov, said that “the supply of multiple rocket launchers to Ukraine could escalate the conflict, as there is a risk that such means could be deployed near Russia’s borders and Ukrainians would be able to launch strikes at Russian cities.” This is manipulation, said the Center.
In addition, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statement to Emmanuel Macron and Olaf Scholz that food shortages are the result of misguided policies and anti-Russian sanctions on the part of the West is manipulative. “Tensions in the food market may be resolved by supplies from Russia, but this, of course, requires the lifting of sanctions.”
The Center for Countering Disinformation also reported on the misinformation being circulated by enemy propaganda channels. Russian media reported that “in Ukraine, American biotechnologists and pharmacists are actively restoring a smallpox strain. At the same time, American instructors trained Ukrainian specialists in emergency response to smallpox outbreaks. “
As Ukrinform reported, Russian propaganda had been spreading across social media a fake report of the allegedly Ukrainian roots of Polish President Andrzej Duda. The fake claims that the Polish leader is the grandson of Mykhailo Duda, a Ukrainian nationalist and commander of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) who fought with the Poles and took part in the controversial Volhynia events back in 1943.
