Ukraine neo-Nazis stage videos to frame Russia forces
Ukraine's neo-Nazis are receiving orders from Kiev to stage videos killing civilians and looting to try to demonize the Russian servicemen and further propagate Russophobia.
The authorities in Kiev have ordered nationalist battalions to film and direct staged videos about looting and mass murder to accuse the Russian armed forces of being behind these crimes, Russian National Defense Control Center head Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev said Tuesday.
"According to the testimonies of surrendered Ukrainian servicemen, nationalist battalions systematically receive orders from Kiev authorities to prepare staged videos about atrocities, mass murder of civilians, looting, and destruction of social infrastructure," Mizintsev said, explaining that the goal of these videos was to spread propaganda against Russian servicemen.
Mizintsev highlighted the particular cynicism of this situation, underlining that for the nationalists to carry out such orders and make such videos, they spare the life of no woman, senior, or child.
"The goal of such materials is to create a negative informational background around the special military operation carried out by the Russian Armed Forces," he added.
Another rebuttal of the nationalist attempts at demonizing the Russian servicemen was Mizintsev underscoring that the majority of civilians are seeking to evacuate to Russia, with Russian military structures receiving 1,734 requests for evacuation to the federation.
"Overall, there are a total of 2,732,405 requests from 2,118 settlements of Ukraine," he revealed.
Russia's special military operation in Ukraine was launched due to NATO's eastward expansion, Kiev's shelling of Donbass, and the killing of the people of the Donetsk People's Republic and Lugansk People's Republic, in addition to Moscow wanting to "denazify" and demilitarize Ukraine.
Russia's operation was faced with a fierce campaign of sanctions, including restrictions on the Russian central bank, export control measures, SWIFT cutoff for select banks, and closure of airspace to all Russian flights. Many of their companies have suspended their Russian operations.
The sanctions were accompanied by a campaign that aimed to demonize Russia, sparking Russophobia in the West, with Meta Inc. allowing calls for violence against Russians, and the neo-Nazis' bid to further demonize Moscow would have only served that campaign.
