“The news ‘The command of the Dnieper group has made the decision to regroup troops to more advantageous positions east of the Dnieper’ is canceled as erroneous,” was the message broadcast today by the Russian agencies that caused a real stir in the information space.
Shortly before, the main Russian media had quoted the Ministry of Defense about a withdrawal of Russian forces from Kherson, coinciding with the anniversary of their previous withdrawal from the areato transfer them to other sectors of the front.
Defense did not take long to release its own statement in which it called “provocation” the news published by official media about the withdrawal of troops south of the Dnieper River due to the Ukrainian advance in the Kherson region.
“The diffusion of false information about the regrouping of troops in the Dnieper River area supposedly on behalf of the press center of the Russian Ministry of Defense is a provocation,” Defense reported to the RBC newspaper.
