Russian propagandists are spreading fakes that the Ukrainian authorities are going to disconnect the temporarily occupied Kherson and Zaporizhia regions from Ukrainian mobile operators and Internet providers. This was reported by the Center for Countering Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council.
“The propagandists emphasize that this is information from a” reliable source from Bankova. ” The reason, according to the racists, is the “truth” that people in the occupation began to tell their relatives and friends about “good Russian soldiers” who do not kill and rob, but help people, “- said in a statement.
According to the Center for Countering Disinformation, the Russians are turning off Ukrainian communications and the Internet to make it easier to spread their propaganda in the occupied territories.
“We would like to inform you that Ukrainians can use VPN services in the temporarily occupied territories, which are connected to Russian networks. When you connect to a VPN, a secure channel is created between the user’s device and the VPN server, so your ISP will not know your location and the web resources you have visited, ”the Disinformation Center wrote.
