The Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoliy Matios fled the country: he is in conflict with Poroshenko

Summary of Disinformation

The Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoliy Matios fled Ukraine: he is in conflict with Poroshenko. Ostensibly, Anatoliy Matios passed the data on corruption in the sphere of defence, where Poroshenko’s protégés are involved, to journalists.

Chief Military Attorney Anatoliy Matios escaped Ukraine, because he is scared of criminal prosecution because of the case of crimes in the “Ukroboronprom” company.

The source of this piece of news about the Chief Military prosecutor of Ukraine escaping the country in the Ukrainian and Russian media  is a Facebook post.  

The Chief Military Attorney Anatoliy Matios debunked (video from 19:50) this himself during his joint press briefing with the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) Vasyl Hrytsak in Kyiv on April 17th.

I want to say with a smile: I am not a double, not a tee, and not even a clone of the fugitive Anatoliy Matios, the military prosecutor that “departed from the territory of Ukraine, escaping”, of which all Russian propaganda media were speaking for several days.  We “ran away” for work, and the work is demonstrated today, and this work is joint, for the state, together with the SBU”, Matios said.

Part of a broader pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign against Petro Poroshenko.
