It has been a busy morning: following a substantial surge in Ukraine separatist activity in the past 24 hours, which saw them capture the strategic Sea of Azov port town of Novoazovsk, a move which the NYT classified as “Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front“, Ukraine has turned on the disinformation spigot to max resulting in a constant verbal, and headline, diarrhea as follows:
POROSHENKO CONVENES SECURITY COUNCIL ON RUSSIAN `INVASION’ POROSHENKO: SITUATION IN UKRAINE’S EAST DETERIORATED SHARPLY UKRAINE EU AMBASSADOR CALLS FOR JOINT EFFORT TO `STOP THIS WAR’ POROSHENKO SAYS SECURITY COUNCIL WILL DRAW UP FURTHER PLANS RUSSIAN ARMY CONTROLS NOVOAZOVSK: UKRAINE SECURITY COUNCIL YATSENYUK URGES UN SECURITY COUNCIL TO DEBATE UKRAINE SITUATION So sure was Ukraine that this time (unlike all those previous disinformation launches) Russia has invaded that Anton Herashchenko, adviser to Ukrainian Interior Ministry, actually commented on his Facebook page saying “Invasion of regular Russian army of Putin to Ukraine is an accomplished fact,’ Adding that Putin “de-facto places Ukraine on a war-footing at a time when a decree was signed to dissolve parliament.”
Well, yes, Ukraine has no government, but Russia of course denied all of it:
PESKOV WON’T COMMENT ON REBEL CLAIM OF RUSSIAN TROOP SUPPORT
