Press Secretary of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Oleg Nikolenko denied the statements of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation about the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass… The politician also explained why the Russian authorities are spreading fakes.
According to Nikolenko, Moscow is creating an “information cover” as it tries to hide the tension itself created in the uncontrolled region and near the Ukrainian border. In fact, the OSCE did not record the offensive actions of Kiev, such statements are discrediting the activities of the organization, the press secretary of the Foreign Ministry emphasized.
“The increase in the intensity of Russian disinformation, the threats of Russian officials against Ukraine indicate that Moscow continues to be guided by the logic of the conflict,” stated Nikolenko in an interview with the UNIAN news portal.
Formerly a representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova reported that the Ukrainian army was advancing in the settlements of Granitnoye and Staromaryevka. As the diplomat said, in Kiev they feel impunity and want to solve problems by force, which is why the situation is escalating in the territory of Donbass.
