The situation repeats itself every time, and every time the Russian media swallow the bait of Ukrainian propaganda. This was the case with the alleged death of Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny, and this is also happening this time with the allegedly severe wound of the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Kirill Budanov.
The bait recipe is quite simple. First, disinformation is thrown into the Russian media. For example, a recent case when Russian propaganda screamed from every iron about the injury or even death of Valery Zaluzny.
When the apotheosis of Russian propaganda hysteria reaches its maximum, a dubious refutation of false fabrications is thrown up for even more warming up. So a video was released with Valery Zaluzhny, which was in doubt.
The Russian media went out of their way to prove that Zalugny had been wounded. And when the degree of inadequacy reached its maximum, the Ukrainian media showed a live and healthy Zaluzhny.
This situation is repeated many times and it is very likely that it is repeating again, now with the alleged wounding of Kirill Budanov.
RIA Novosti published inside information that as a result of a rocket attack on May 29, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, was seriously wounded. Earlier, RIA Novosti published exactly the same statement regarding Zaluzhny.
At the same time, on Friday, June 16, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that Budanov was present at the meeting of the military cabinet:
And there was Budanov. By the way.
Of course, the Russian media will not believe Zelensky and will continue to publish false fabrications. We must expect that in a couple of days a video with the participation of Budanov will be released, and the Russian media, as always, will find themselves in an unsightly situation.
