A Ukrainian general in Donbas ignored the orders of President Zelenskyy to establish a ceasefire. Instead, he ordered to continue military actions.
This message is aimed to question the powers and legitimacy of Ukrainian authorities and is consistent with a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about Ukrainian statehood.
There have been no statements made by President Zelenskyy or his representatives concerning the alleged violation of ceasefire by the Ukrainian Army and insubordination of high-ranking military officers to Ukraine’s president.
The claim concerning insubordination is based on a statement of a security functionary from the unrecognized Luhansk People's Republic and has not been confirmed by other independent sources.
