Russia launches fake about Ukrainian artillerymen involved in arms sales to Hamas
Russian propagandists are spreading disinformation about the alleged involvement of artillerymen with the 128th Brigade, killed in a strike in the Zaporizhzhia region, in the sale of weapons to Hamas.
This is reported by the Center for Strategic Communications, according to Espreso.
As noted, Russian propagandists, citing a "publication" in Ukrainska Pravda, write that the Hamas group received Western weapons through the soldiers with the 128th Brigade who had already been killed in the Zaporizhzhia region. However, as noted by the Center for Strategic Communications, this is a fake.
The agency emphasized that in fact there is no such publication on the publication’s website.
"When using the search engine on the publication's website, the search engine does not provide any results on this topic. The propagandists have only spread a screenshot of the alleged publication of the material, and not a link to the material itself, which would allow us to verify the information. This publication is also not in the portfolio of the publication's editor Kateryna Tyshchenko, who is listed as the author of the fake - the information is dated November 5, but neither on November 5 nor on other days does such material by Tyshchenko exist," the government organization clarified.
"In addition, the fake news makers did not indicate what kind of weapons the dead artillerymen were selling, where is the statement and photographic evidence of the Israelis who allegedly found some weapons samples - there is no word about this in the "investigation," the Center for Strategic Communications added.
- Earlier, the media reported that Russians are spreading fake news about the "division" of Ukraine's regions between Italy, Germany, Canada and the United States.
