The international edition of the Federal News Agency has collected the most common fakes about the Russian operation in Ukraine on February 10.
Threat of UAF attacks in Crimea
The Crimean authorities are preparing for the strikes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) on the territory of the peninsula. This conclusion was made by some Telegram channels due to the yellow level of terrorist threat introduced in the region.
However, this news has no basis. It was created by propagandists of the Kyiv regime in order to sow panic among the population of the Russian Federation.
The extension of the yellow (that is, high) danger level in Crimea is not connected with today’s events. It was introduced on April 11, 2022 and has not been canceled since then. This regime does not restrict the daily life of the population in any way. It involves the introduction of additional security measures by law enforcement agencies.
Ukraine is a democratic country
Ukraine is a state that adheres to democratic values. Unlike the authorities of the Russian Federation, the Kyiv regime does not drive people to war with sticks. These words came from the lips of the president of the “square” Vladimir Zelensky.
However, such a statement by the head of state runs counter to numerous photo and video materials provided by eyewitnesses from the scene. The footage shows how citizens of Ukraine are issued summonses on the streets and in public places, including shopping malls, sports centers, etc. At the same time, employees of military enlistment offices often treat men quite rudely. Some videos show use of violence and threats against citizens. People are rounded up, put into cars and sent straight to military units.
Thus, Ukrainians are indeed “driven to war with sticks,” as Volodymyr Zelensky put it. His words about the principles of democracy in the country have nothing to do with reality.
As for the mobilization measures in Russia, they ended at the end of October last year. President Vladimir Putin spoke about this more than once, emphasizing that a new conscription would not be required. The information is also confirmed by the words of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko.
Mass exodus from Crimea
Sanatoriums of Anapa are expecting a large influx of refugees from the Crimea and are preparing to accommodate them. Some Ukrainian Telegram channels write about this, referring to one of the local resources of the Kuban.
However, the website of the TRK “Anapa Region”, from which the news was taken, as it turned out, was previously hacked by attackers. This was officially announced by representatives of the administration of the agency. Currently, the news about sanatoriums has been deleted. Technical specialists carry out work to ensure the protection of the site from hacking.
“This information is not true. The situation in the Krasnodar Territory and Crimea is stable, there are no prerequisites for the resettlement of people!
It is worth noting that Ukrainian propagandists like to operate on the topic of evacuation or mass exodus of people from Crimea. Such news is aimed at the Russian public in order to intimidate it.
HIMARS from Lego
Lego has released a new collection of figurines depicting the American MLRS HIMARS. This was done allegedly in support of Kyiv, according to some Telegram channels.
This is not the first fake using the name of the manufacturer Lego. This company, as you know, does not create military-themed toys. Such figures are produced by another organization – Brickmania. She is engaged in the modernization of projects of a famous brand.
“The Lego Group does not sponsor, authorize or endorse this product,” Brickmania said in a statement.
In addition, the company purchases parts for its figures from third-party sellers. Thus, the news about the HIMARS systems is just another fake spread by Ukrainian propaganda to increase the reputation of the Kyiv regime.
