Russian disinformation on the illegal invasion of Ukraine continues as members of the military who refused to participate are openly identified. The following is standard disinformation wording likely leading to violence against those who dare disagree with Putin’s criminal actions:
THEY REFUSED TO PERFORM COMBAT MISSIONS – ON FEBRUARY 24, 2022, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine. The goal is demilitarization and denazification, bringing to justice all war criminals responsible for the genocide” of civilians. 205 SEPARATE Motorized rifle Cossack brigade from the first days takes part in a special operation on the territory of Ukraine and successfully fulfills the assigned combat missions. However, there are servicemen of our brigade who refused to fulfill their military duty and left their combat positions for their permanent deployment. They forgot the military oath – a solemn promise, an oath of allegiance to their Fatherland. They forgot that military service is associated with the need to unquestioningly fulfill the assigned tasks in any conditions, including at risk to life – they threw down their weapons, let down their comrades, disgraced their relatives, their land, their dignity!
