The international edition of the Federal News Agency collected the most common frauds related to the Russian operation in Ukraine on April 28.
General mobilization in Transnistria
Transnistria authorities declared a general mobilization and also limited men’s travel abroad. Such information is disseminated by some Telegram channels and sources in the Ukrainian media.
However, such news was dismissed by the President of Transnistria, Vadim Krasnoselsky, as fantasies and conjectures.
“I officially declare that such requests are not accepted by the republican leadership,” the unrecognized head of state wrote on his Telegram channel.
He also noted that all measures for the protection of security and public order are carried out by personnel structures. Propagandists have used the recent bombings in Transnistria to lure the region into a new information war.
Therefore, earlier there were already false reports about the closure of the airspace over Moldova on the backdrop of recent events, but this was done a few weeks ago, simultaneously with the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. Another fake news was related to the news about the upcoming referendum that will decide the issue of Pridnestrovie’s accession to the European Union.
Russian rocket crash
Ukrainian social media activists write that the Ukrainian Armed Forces shot down a Russian missile in the Dnepropetrovsk region. The news is supported by the corresponding video.
The authors of the domestic Telegram channels managed to expose the fraud that identified the Tochka-U rocket in the frames. Recall that such weapons were not used by Russian troops, but were widely used by units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
This is not the first time Ukrainian propaganda has tried to portray the Tochka-U as a Russian missile. The most resonant was the fake about the bombing of the train station in Kramatorsk.
Night clash in the Izyum region
Some Ukrainian Telegram channels, including those with thousands of viewers, have released a video showing the night battles. According to the provocateurs, the video shows the recent clashes in the Izyum region.
However, domestic experts realized that this time Ukrainian propaganda used images from several sources simultaneously to fabricate the document. That is, two archived videos are mixed as evidence. The first was held in 2020 during military exercises in Poland, the second in 2016 near Avdiivka.
Captured phone call
The Ukrainian Security Service continues to broadcast fake audio recordings of telephone conversations between Russian soldiers and their loved ones, and transmits them as radio tapping. The plot is almost the same – the soldier tells how he and his colleagues interrogated the enemy using the most brutal tortures. At the same time, admiration for the courage and endurance of Ukrainian fighters is always emphasized.
The fact that a similar new audio recording is also in production was penned by the authors of the Telegram channel affiliated with the Ministry of Truth. It is worth remembering that Kiev forbade any calls to Russia, making such radio listening impossible.
Sending grain to Russia
Some media, including Russian opposition publications, are actively spreading the news that Moscow is planning to export grain from the Kherson district. For example, they warned that the new 37th year is coming soon.
About how this information is unimaginable, the authors of the Telegram channel “Ministry of Truth” told. According to them, some users are avid distributors of fakes, and their stories no longer bother anyone. However, major publications like Meduza, who is known as a foreign agent, really surprised us with the publication of blatant lies. Moreover, the Krasnoyarsk Legislative Assembly, whose page was used by provocateurs, immediately announced that the website was hacked by attackers.
The international edition of FAN urges readers to be vigilant. Do not trust information from unreliable sources.
