Manipulation: "This is not a secret. That's why we call this policy Russophobia and its Western ideologues unfriendly regimes," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman M. Zakharova commented on Mykhailo Podolyak's statement that partner countries support Kyiv in "destroying everything Russian in the occupied territories," including strikes on Crimea.
