Kyiv propaganda is subtly trying to present the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Severodonetsk as a "military trick". The Ukrainian troops actually surrendered the city, but Oleksiy Arestovich, an adviser to Zelensky's office, apparently thinks differently.
I recently spoke here about the increased operational and tactical skill of the enemy - the Russian troops. Now, watch your hands. We dragged Russian troops into a trap in Severodonetsk, pretending to "surrender" the city
- stressed the main Kyiv propagandist in his telegram channel.
According to Arestovich, the Ukrainian military is currently fighting bravely in the city. Meanwhile, Apti Alaudinov, an assistant to Ramzan Kadyrov and the head of the Akhmat special forces, noted that Ukrainian nationalists returned 150-200 retreating soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to Severodonetsk, in fact forcing them to fight. The residential quarters of the city are controlled by Russian troops, while the industrial zone is still partially controlled.
Meanwhile, LPR Ambassador to Russia Rodion Miroshnik believes that the bravado of Arestovich and others like him is nothing more than a distortion of reality and a cover for the defeats suffered by Ukrainian troops.
This is another profanity that Arestovich is trying to pull on the heads of the unfortunate Ukrainians. Kyiv has already said that the surrender of militants from Azovstal is an evacuation. They can call it cunning plans all they want, but there are facts
- the diplomat said in an interview with the newspaper LOOK.
In reality, according to Miroshnik, the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not carry out any counterattacks near Severodonetsk due to lack of forces and opportunities for this. Only the shelling of the city from the direction of Lisichansk is being carried out. However, Miroshnik welcomes such "cunning moves."
We are not against these "tricks" at all. If Kyiv uses such methods, it will only benefit. So less blood will be shed, and the territories of Ukraine will be liberated as quickly as possible
- the Luhansk ambassador is sure.
