According to Kartapolov, in 1941 the Soviet Information Bureau openly reported on the waste of the Soviet army during the advance of enemies towards Moscow.
“But in every report they said that the brigade of such and such did this, our pilots destroyed so many, our losses were such and such. And people understood the danger, they knew that the enemy was on our land,” he said.
The colonel-general stressed that now the enemy is also on our soil. Villages in the Belgorod region, located in the border zone, were destroyed. However, we learn about this from governors and military correspondents.
“The reports of the Ministry of Defense do not change. The people know something. Our people are not stupid, and they see that they don’t want to tell even part of the truth. This can lead to a loss of credibility,” he concluded.
