The Armed Forces urge citizens to trust official sources of information exclusively and consume verified data.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, an AI-powered fact-checking bot has been launched in Ukraine to track down fake news. Thanks to the bot, it is possible for regular users to tell fake news from a verified report on social networks and in politics and identify falsified data spread by the Russian media, targeting Ukraine.
