Quote: "The aggressors are using the forms of hybrid warfare that are classic by now."

"The so-called ‘media trip’ of Ruscist and foreign mass media from Rostov-on-Don is being prepared and will include visits to Kherson, Nova Kakhovka, Skadovsk and Armiansk. A meeting with collaborators appointed by the occupying forces is planned during this trip, as well as demonstration of fake evidence that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are allegedly civilians."

"The Ruscists continue the insidious practice of falsifications, leaving their positions in villages, moving military equipment towards our positions and targeting civilians. And then, returning to the villages, they falsely claim that it’s the Armed Forces of Ukraine who conducted the furious attack."

Background: Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reminded the media that entry into the occupied territories of Ukraine from Russia is illegal and will be punished by a ban on entering Ukraine or the withdrawal of their press passes.
