The Commander-in-chief called the shelling of the Rostov region by the Ukrainian military a lie
Lieutenant-General of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny denied information about the shelling of the Rostov region in Russia by the Ukrainian military.
The Militarnyi was reported by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant-General Valery Zaluzhny.
On February 19, Russian media began spreading information about artillery shelling in the Rostov region.
Also, Russian media reported that the first shell exploded in the Tarasovsky District of the Rostov region, one kilometer from the state border of Russia with Ukraine. There are no casualties or damage.
Nearby a second 122-mm projectile with MLRS Grad was found.
Russian media reported that the shell destroyed a farm building on the territory of a private household in the village of Manotsky, Tarasovsky District.
The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation immediately opened a criminal case and accused “Ukrainian paramilitary groups” of shelling.
Also, Russian propaganda resources immediately began to accuse the Ukrainian military of shelling.
Tarasovsky district is an administrative-territorial unit of the Rostov region of the Russian Federation. Distance to Rostov-on-Don – 180 km.
In the west, it borders the Luhansk region of Ukraine.
Statement by the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
Lieutenant-General Valery Zaluzhny said that Russian propaganda continues to spread fakes, accusing the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“Units of the Allied Forces did not carry out any shelling from artillery systems, nor the occupied territories, nor the territory of the Russian Federation,” said the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny.
Valery Zaluzhny said that the information actively disseminated in the Russian media about the alleged shelling of the Rostov region by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is an outright lie and provocation.
“In particular, the report about the ruptures of the alleged Ukrainian jet projectile from MLRS Grad and 122 mm projectile in the Rostov region is fake,” says Valery Zaluzhny.
It should emphasize the artillery units of the Joint Forces located in the areas of withdrawal at a distance of more than 21 km from the line of contact.
The Lieutenant-General stressed the occupiers themselves were blowing up infrastructure facilities in the occupied territories, carrying out chaotic shelling of settlements, and deliberately producing false messages.
We will remind, intimidating the local population by Ukrainian offensive representatives of occupying forces of Russia in Donbas declared carrying out the evacuation of residents to the Rostov region.
