Russia is preparing to launch a “large-scale information and psychological operation” against Ukraine, Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said Tuesday.
“Its goal is to break the resistance of Ukrainians and the Ukrainian army with lies,” Reznikov said in a statement.
According to the defense minister, Russia has planned to create “communication problems” and to fabricate reports that Ukraine’s military and political leadership have “agreed to surrender” to the Russian Forces.
“As a ‘confirmation’ of this, fake — supposedly signed — documents as well as edited fake videos will be spread,” Reznikov said.
“This is a lie. This won’t happen. There will be no surrender! Only victory,” he added.
