The Russians launched an information wave about the alleged disappearance of Commander-in-Chief Valeriy Zaluzhnyi.
Deputy Minister of Defense Hanna Maliar denied this Russian fake and said that the Commander-in-Chief was on the spot and doing his job.
Maliar wrote about this on Telegram.
"Glavkom is on the spot. Does its job. We just talked," she said.
According to Maliar, this is a typical information technology aimed at demoralizing our army.
"In terms of action, it is very short - from several hours to one day. Because the information is easy to verify. And the effect of it is expected in case of a good moment of distribution and mass," the official explained.
Maliar noted that the moment of spread is clear - the peak of tension in Bakhmut, when even a few demoralized soldiers on our part will ease the situation.
"Actually, for the sake of this, there are a lot of premature reports about the 'capture' of Bakhmut," she concluded.
Over the past two weeks, the aggressor country Russia has been spreading fakes about the alleged death of a number of Ukrainian commanders. In particular, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valerii Zaluzhnyi.
In early May, Russian propaganda began to spread fake news on the Internet about the alleged death of Zaluzhnyi, Commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksandr Syrsky and other military commanders. The Ministry of Defense denied the fakes of the Russian Federation.
