Another bottom has been broken: Russians pass off as their own a video of a Ukrainian military drone delivering water to Oleshky residents. Photo.
The Russians have broken through yet another bottom. They stole a video of a Ukrainian military drone delivering water to the residents of Oleshky. This settlement is suffering from flooding due to the explosion of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station.
The information was posted on Telegram. Propagandists publish news using this video (to watch the video, scroll to the bottom of the page).
In the footage used in the Russian Federation, a Ukrainian soldier from the 406th Brigade is seen handing a woman a bottle of water by drone.
But the propagandists traditionally presented the good work of Ukrainians as their own. They described how they were the ones who were helping.
"Just rotten, nasty creatures," they wrote online.
It should be noted that the water was handed over to the woman by an aerial reconnaissance officer of the State Border Guard Service with the call sign "Santa". In addition to water, he also delivered food and encouraging notes by drone.
Later, he met with the family.
When the aerial reconnaissance men spotted civilians trapped in the flooded area, which was also under enemy control, their priorities changed. The Santa reconnaissance drone, like other colleagues from the Ukrainian Defence Forces, carried water, food, and messages to people.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, on the morning of June 6, it became known that the occupiers had blown up the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, putting up to 80 settlements under the threat of flooding.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy called the attack by Russia the largest man-made eco-disaster in Europe in decades.
Russia itself cynically accused Ukraine of the terrorist attack. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Ukraine had to destroy its hydroelectric power station and create a disaster proportional to the Chernobyl accident in order to deprive the occupied Crimea of water and because of an allegedly "failed counter-offensive".
