Kiev is preparing an information attack on Crimea to disrupt the tourist season

Summary of Disinformation

The Ukrainian government is allegedly preparing an information attack on the occupied Crimea in order to disrupt the tourist season there. This is proven by a letter from the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of temporarily occupied territories Vadim Chernysh to the head of the Ministry of Information Policy Yuri Stetsyu. In it, Chernysh suggests to Stetsyu that the holiday season on the peninsula can be disrupted with the help of media and bloggers.

Disproof

The press service of the Ministry of Information Policy reported that this information is a fake. The ministry explained that the signature of the head of the Ministry of Temporarily Occupied Territories Vadim Chernysh is counterfeit, and the document itself has a number of inconsistencies with the norms adopted in the official correspondence.
