Should Donetsk and Luhansk be left to Putin? Yusov exposed the "ex-colonel" of the Main Directorate of Intelligence

Main Directorate of Intelligence told about a new information-psychological operation of the Kremlin in Ukraine

The terrorist country Russia has significantly intensified its information and psychological operations in Ukraine, in particular, those that should convince Ukrainians that Donbass is not part of Ukraine. For these purposes, the Russian Federation used "ex-lieutenant colonel" of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry Denis Desyatnik, who has nothing to do with the Main Directorate of Intelligence.

This statement in an exclusive commentary to OBOZREVATEL was made by a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Yusov. "This person is not a lieutenant colonel of the State Intelligence Directorate and has never been an officer of the Main Directorate of Intelligence and has no authority to make any statements from the security and defense sector of Ukraine in general and from the State Intelligence Directorate in particular," he stressed.

As Yusov explained, "the enemy continues to conduct information and psychological operations against Ukraine and does so in a very active direct and indirect way".

In the context of the theses voiced by Desyatnik that Donbass, Donetsk and Luhansk in particular, are allegedly pro-Russian and should be left under occupation, the representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence said that Ukraine had long ago voiced its unambiguous position on this issue.

"The position of Ukraine, the Ukrainian military and political leadership, the entire security and defense sector is unambiguous: within the framework of international law, Ukraine must restore its sovereignty and return to the internationally recognized borders of the 1991 model. We do not have any other borders," he stressed.

Yusov added that there can be no talk about the domination of pro-Russian sentiments in the occupied Donbass because even in conditions of "a de facto concentration camp" into which Russian occupants have turned this Ukrainian region, there is clear evidence that "Donbass was and is Ukrainian".

A spokesman for the Main Directorate of Intelligence described a telling case that took place in public transport in Mariupol. "Just yesterday (June 19, - Ed.) a video circulated in social networks in which two young men in public transport in Mariupol put the Russian occupant in his place, in his face expressed what they thought - both about the invaders and about how they "liberated" the city by destroying it. A few hours later they were forced to apologize to the occupiers, by force, of course."

"That number of prisoners of war, in particular fighters from Donbass, illegally detained persons, civilians from Ukrainian Donbass, political prisoners, destroyed people who fought for Ukraine, as well as the number who continue to fight and provide active or passive assistance to Ukrainian security and defense forces clearly show that Donbass was Ukrainian, is Ukrainian and will definitely officially and actually return to Ukrainian control, and the "Russian world" will die," Yusov said.

He added that the Russian passports that were forcibly distributed to residents of Donbass would not prevent them from returning to Ukraine. "Forced passportization in itself is a crime. Accordingly, Ukraine will not recognize illegitimate documents," stressed the spokesman for the Main Directorate of Intelligence.

As OBOZREVATEL wrote, the Security Service of Ukraine detained another informer of the Russian occupiers, who passed information about the movements and coordinates of the Third Assault Brigade of the AFU to the enemy. The traitor used an assumed name and a fake messenger account.
