DISINFO: Ukrainian general complains that they “failed to ensanguine Crimea”


Ukrainian general Serhiy Kryvonos said that Crimea should have been ensanguined in 2014.


According to the pro-Kremlin media, this statement was taken from the source "Crym.Realii" where the interview with the general and the former head of the Council of the national security Sergyi Kryvonos was published. However, there is no claim from his side about that.

Simultaneously, the pro-Russian political expert Vladimir Dzharalla, commenting on the allegation of the general Kryvonos said about the Ukrainian authority's attempts to drench Crimea in blood. Thus, the pro-Russian media issued Dzharalla's words as a quote on behalf of the Ukrainian general.

Read similar cases claiming that Crimea never belonged to Ukraine, that there is no proof of human rights abuses in Crimea, or that Ukraine is depriving Crimea of freshwater.
