Strikes against Luhansk and shortage of donor blood – what fake news spread in Ukraine on May 13?

Must read

The international edition of the Federal News Agency brought together the most common fake news about Russia’s May 13 operation in Ukraine.

Attacks on Luhansk

It is alleged that the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out numerous attacks on the territory of Luhansk. This was announced by Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, known for his love of fake spreading.

However, this information is not correct. The fact is that the attacks were carried out by the Armed Forces of Ukraine (UAF) using long-range missile weapons supplied by the West.

Artillery types in the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not capable of reaching the territory of Lugansk. Most likely, the bombardment was carried out with the help of weapons made in the USA or Great Britain.

It is noteworthy that the other day London announced that in the near future it will supply air-launched Storm Shadow cruise missiles to Kiev. It is known that in the autumn of 2022, efforts are being made to adapt the MiG-29 warplanes, which serve in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, to NATO ammunition.

The fact that the attack was carried out by the Ukrainian side is confirmed by the fragments of the ADM-160 decoy rocket located in Lugansk. Such shells are used to overload air defense systems. They are launched together with real rockets. Also, Ukrainian social media activists are happy to report the attacks on the Russian city as another victory for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Donated blood deficiency

It is alleged that residents of the Kursk, Belgorod and Bryansk regions began to receive messages asking them to act as blood donors. This is done in order to replenish the “strategic reserve” on the eve of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

First of all, there is no shortage of blood in the above areas. This is indicated by the data of donor traffic lights published on the official websites of the relevant departments. In addition, Kursk officials and the head of the Ministry of Health of the Belgorod Region Andrei Ikonnikov have already denied information about the need to collect materials.

“While I was at the Yakovlevskaya Central District Hospital, I also received a call from the so-called Ministry of Health and was asked to donate blood. Friends, I repeat: do not listen and do not worry! said the official.

By sowing such rumors, Ukrainian propagandists are primarily trying to cause panic among the Russian people. Similar injections were previously observed in other parts of the Russian Federation.

Reserve soldiers will be sent to the NVO region

It is alleged that citizens called for military training will be sent directly to the special military operations (SVO) area. This news is spread by Ukrainian Telegram channels citing military reporter Oleksandr Sladkov.

This is not true. Reserve soldiers will not be sent to the front. Collections are made annually. According to current legislation, they last no more than two months.

In addition, the military commander Sladkov did not report anything like that. Ukrainian propagandists linked to a fake source.

According to the reporter himself, his name is often used to make up news and create false pages. Sladkov also urged readers to file a complaint with Telegram management if such propaganda posts are found.
