MOSCOW, March 17. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova on Thursday castigated a recent publication by the Italian newspaper La Stampa, in which a photo of victims following a Tochka-U missile attack in Donetsk is framed as a picture from Kiev. She branded the move as an example of particular cynicism.
"There are examples of particular cynicism that cannot go unnoticed. La Stampa published a photo from Donetsk on its front page. Rescuers, bodies, people grieving, signs of destruction - all these are the consequences of the shelling committed by the Ukrainian military in the DPR with the use of the Tochka-U tactical missile system. The headline on the front page of the newspaper reads as follows: "This is how Kiev faces the last assault." As though the bodies of the victims were lying in Kiev, and not in Donetsk. This fake is indicative," she wrote on her Telegram channel.
According to Zakharova, it would take "the whole day" to count the newspapers spreading disinformation. "Anything will do for the sake of sensationalism with an anti-Russian slant. And no one cares about the truth. Everyone is serving one side of the fence," she concluded.
