Disproof

The source for this fake story cited by all media who disseminated it is an officer from Ukraine’s Military General Staff Colonel Yuriy Bobrov who held a briefing in Kyiv on March 6 to discuss Ukraine’s new law on reintegration of the Donbas and de-occupation of Crimea, Ukraine’s peninsula that Russia annexed in 2014. Not at any time during the briefing did Bobrov speak about a campaign or an offensive.
