UPDATES: Fake News Won't Shield Mercenaries & Their Sponsors From Accountability for Crimes - Russia

Being updated
Russia launched its special military op in Ukraine back in February, in order to stop the eight-year-long war which had been waged by Kiev in Donbass. Moscow stressed that the goal of the operation is "demilitarization and denazification".
The Kiev regime does not stop trying provocations to accuse the Russian Army of war crimes. Another such production with the death of alleged civilians as a result of a fabricated shelling by Russian units, was prepared by specialists of the information and psychological operations of Ukraine for its presentation to the global community in the coming days, the head of the Russian National Center for Defense Control said.
He added that such actions of the Ukrainian authorities once again showed their inhuman attitude towards the fate of the people of Ukraine and testify to the complete disregard for all norms of morality and international humanitarian law.
Meanwhile, Russian military and Donbass militia troops continue to drive Ukrainian forces out of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Lugansk People's Republic, which were recognized as independent states by Moscow in late February.
