In particular, during this week, an appeal of so-called “experienced lieutenant-colonel of intelligence of Special Forces” has actively spread by certain mass media including public TV channels. He has accused the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine of betraying of the units of Special Forces participating in counterterrorist operation in the east of Ukraine.
Even a preview of this plot indicates a complete mismatch of this man to his words. In particular, he introduces himself as an officer of intelligence of an air assault military unit but there aren’t such military units in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A conceptual apparatus used by “experienced lieutenant-colonel” is evidenced of lack of basic military understanding. In addition, there are plenty of other details, including uniform, that indicate of framed-up and sponsored nature of this plot.
Unfortunately, certain mass media in pursuit of doubtful ratings and cheap popularity does PR on the blood, publishing biased information. Thereby, they help the enemy, decreasing heroic achievements of warriors-patriots and disgrace a blessed memory of dead persons.
Defence Intelligence of Ukraine Public Affairs Service is authorized to state that the personnel of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine including intelligence have performed the tasks assigned by the leaders of our state honestly and courageously.
