MOSCOW, August 28. /TASS/. Member of the Russian Civic Chamber, Director of the Foundation for Democracy Studies Maxim Grigoriev has spoken about the new blasphemous propaganda techniques used by Kiev: the Ukrainian side argues that the militias in the Donbas region are "shelling themselves."
"Recently Ukraine began to use, I would say, a blasphemous propaganda trick: they take photos, video footage of the shelling of Ukrainian territories of Donbas and present them to the international community, they show them on TV, accompanying all this with inscriptions about the Donbas militias shelling themselves," Grigoriev told a meeting of the working group on the legal analysis of legislative procedures and legal acts passed in Ukraine on Friday. The group operates under the aegis of State Duma speaker Sergey Naryshkin.
"We all understand that, if someone, some formation is striving for self-determination, it would be utterly absurd to begin this self-determination with the shelling of 16,000 of its facilities," the expert said, adding, that, according to his estimates, about 16,000 facilities have been shelled in the Donbas region.
