The invaders reportedly focused their efforts on spreading misinformation and propaganda through all available channels. With the help of cyber units and Russia’s federal media, the enemy is actively spreading disinfo about Ukraine’s military and political leadership, creating and spreading fakes about the alleged acceptance of Russia’s ultimatums , as well as calls for the Ukrainian forces to cease fire and lay down their weapons.
"We urge you to trust verified sources only and keep your calm," the General Staff said.
The press service also noted that, despite the fact that the Russian soldiers deployed in Ukraine are isolated from objective information, some reports about Russia’s disgraceful situation still reaches out to them. There are rumors among the military about the inability of the Russian defense ministry to pay off their allowances due to sanctions, which in turn demoralizes the occupying forces. In the area of the village of Shestovytsia, Chernihiv region, the occupiers are seeking for ways to surrender.
