Ukrainian activist condemns Russian propaganda group

If you don't live in a country that has been invaded by the occupiers who are tearing it apart, you probably don't understand what it is like to condemn the defending army after seven years with the organization, she wrote in a Facebook post. There are no words in any language that are able to explain it to someone who has not felt this pain. She also worried that the statement, prepared in the group's main office, not by its Ukrainian arm, would be used and abused by the Kremlin. The organization produced material that sounded like support for Russian narratives, without wanting it, Ms. Pokalchuk said. The research was used as a tool of Russian propaganda, aimed at protecting civilians. One of the most destructive forms of warfare is the Ukrainian military fighting in urban settings, a problem raised by the statement. In the five months since Russia invaded Ukraine, the country s cities have become the focal point for both offensive and defensive operations.
