The Russian government continues create fakeswhich should testify to the alleged “engagement” or “plans to engage” Polish military units on the side of Ukraine in the war, reported Commissioner of the Polish government for the security of the information space, spokesman for the coordinating minister for the special services of Poland, Stanislav Zharyn.
“Russia continues disinformation operations against Poland and Ukraine. The Kremlin impersonates the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. The forged Ukrainian document should become “proof” of Poland’s participation in the war and preparation for the annexation of Western Ukraine,” wrote Zharyn, adding to the post a “document” allegedly signed by the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Serhiy Shaptala.
According to the Polish official, “special agents of the Russian Federation on behalf of the Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces fabricated a document in which a fake is being spread about the alleged simplification of crossing the Polish-Ukrainian border for Polish soldiers who want to support Ukraine.”
“The document should provide for a simplified procedure for the entry of units of the international contingent that will appear or be created in Poland,” the spokesman of the coordinating minister for special services of Poland emphasized.
According to him, the published Russian fake should be for the authorities of the Russian Federation “proof” of the alleged direct participation of Poland in the war on the side of Ukraine, as well as “another repetition of the lie about the alleged preparation of Poland for the annexation of Western Ukraine.”
According to his information, “the falsified document is distributed by information resources controlled by the special services of Russia.” However, he did not rule out that “this fake may also appear on foreign resources in the near future.”
In February, the Ministry of Defense of Romania also declaredthat dozens of social media posts claiming that Bucharest is building up troops and military equipment on the border with Moldova are part of a “fake news campaign” launched by the Kremlin after a full-scale invasion to Ukraine in February last year.
