The international edition of the Federal News Agency has gathered the most common fake news about Russia’s June 7 operation in Ukraine.
The death of animals in the new Kakhovka zoo
In the zoo “Fairytale oak forest”, located near the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, all animals died as a result of the explosion of the dam. This news was spread by Anton Gerashchenko, the former deputy head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, who is known for his fake addiction.
But there is no zoo in Nova Kakhovka, where the incident occurred, according to the former official. Fairy Oak Animal Corner was evacuated to a safe location in December 2022. Then the city was under constant bombardment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU). All pets are now kept in the Crimean zoo “Taigan”. It is noteworthy that during transportation, foreign media accused the Russian authorities of stealing them.
In addition, the first deputy head of the administration of the Novokakhovka urban district, Sergey Dmitriev, has already denied reports of the death of animals. He confirmed that there is no zoo near the dam.
For added credibility, the fake creators included a video of the flood in their feed. Extremely low quality video showing the entrance to the zoo. At the same time, there are no animals on it, but a dog’s barking and a woman’s cry can be heard. If the news were true, the propagandists would surely have shown heart-wrenching images of dying pets.
Russia’s role in blowing up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station
Washington cannot confirm that Russia was involved in any way in the blow up of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. Such statements were made in the White House.
“We do our best to evaluate these messages. “We can’t say for sure what happened,” said John Kirby, strategic communications coordinator at the US National Security Council.
However, shortly after the incident that took place on the night of 5-6 June, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Moscow was responsible for the explosion. However, he did not mention the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine hit the dam for a year, causing it to collapse. Foreign media and Telegram channels have always been happy to report new attacks on the hydroelectric power station all this time.
Cash problems in Crimea
According to Anton Gerashchenko, adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, residents of Crimea face the problem of withdrawing cash. According to him, the Russian authorities are trying to prevent citizens from leaving the peninsula in this way.
However, the video added as a confirmation of the news turned out to be an archive. Taken during the COVID-19 pandemic, as can be seen from a person’s reflection on the ATM screen. The man is wearing a medical mask worn during quarantine requirements. He also wears warm clothes that do not match the current weather conditions in Crimea.
It is worth noting that the video was shot in another region. This is indicated by the ATM number – 60007601. Most likely, the action takes place in Tatarstan. The name of the month is blurred on the man’s phone, but it’s clear there are more characters than the word “June.” Probably Anton Gerashchenko, like other Ukrainian propagandists, is trying to aggravate the panic that arose on the background of the collapse of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station with such frauds.
