MOSCOW, June 16. /TASS/. The Russian Defense Ministry on Tuesday ridiculed a Ukrainian deputy's report on "working plans of the Russian General Staff to seize left-bank Ukraine."
Earlier, Ukrainian parliament deputy and adviser to the interior minister Anton Gerashchenko posted on one of his websites allegedly "working plans of the General Staff of the Russian Federation to capture left-bank Ukraine."
"Judging by the appearance of this ‘secret’ paperwork, its author... is a military pensioner hired for ‘thirty pieces of silver’ who in Soviet times graduated from the Frunze Military Academy," Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.
