Personal security of Ukraine’s military-political leadership of strategic importance - MoD

In the last two weeks, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense recorded three fake reports circulated by platforms affiliated with the Russian forces, claiming that the country’s top commanders had been killed.

Therefore, the issue of personal security of Ukraine’s military-political leadership is now of strategic importance, Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar told the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.

"Over the past two weeks, we recorded three enemy fake stories alleging the ‘deaths’ of our commanders. In chronological order, they were related to (Territorial Defense Force Commander Ihor – ed.) Tantsiura, (Chief of the General Staff Oleksandr – ed.) Syrskyi, and (Commander in Chief Valeriy – ed.) Zaluzhnyi. On the one hand, it's easy to check and refute such reports. Actually, that's what’s been done. On the other hand, you have to understand that Russians are prone to false starts, and often their information front forces release reports without verifying them directly with executors," said Maliar.
