Russian Telegram channels and Twitter pages are spreading a fake news about Zhytomyr authorities that have allegedly decided to install a monument to Putin in the city in order to demolish it afterwards.
“Demolishing a monument to Putin is the most desirable show for every Ukrainian. This unites people, energizes them,” – such arguments regarding the monument’s installation were attributed to Zhytomyr Mayor Serhii Sukhomlyn by Russian propaganda.
Sukhomlyn refuted this message in a commentary to Ukrinform, having called it “utter nonsense”.
Earlier, on November 11, 2022, a monument to Alexander Pushkin was demolished in Zhytomyr.
Meanwhile, “the most desirable show for every Ukrainian” is to see Putin on trial for the crimes committed in Ukraine.
