Russian media forbid calling the attack on Ukraine a war

Roskomnadzor is tightening censorship and demanding the Russian media to remove materials where the military invasion of Ukraine was called a war.

This was reported by the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta.

"These resources, under the guise of reliable reports, contain unreliable socially significant information about the shelling of Ukrainian cities by the Russian Armed Forces and the deaths of civilians as a result of the Russian Army, as well as materials in which the operation is called an attack, invasion or declaration of war."

In case of non-compliance with the requirements, the local media is threatened with blocking on the territory of the Russian Federation. Earlier, the Russian media also reported that in Russia there was restricted access to Facebook.

Back in January, US Permanent Representative to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield said that the Kremlin was conducting an active campaign of disinformation - Russia was trying to show Ukraine as an aggressor and itself as a victim.

It will be recalled that on February 21, Russian-backed leaders of the terrorist DNR and LNR, who occupied part of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, turned to Putin for military assistance. They pointed to the aggravation of the security situation in Donbass and said that there were "threats from Kyiv". Prior to that, the Russian president announced the recognition of "independent republics" of these illegal armed groups and ordered the introduction of Russian troops there.

At around 5 a.m. on February 24, Putin announced an invasion of Ukraine, calling it a "military operation in the Donbas." The Russian army began intense shelling of units of the Armed Forces, as well as military control centers and airfields in other regions. The occupiers also shoot at civilian objects, including schools and kindergartens. Currently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as territorial defense, continue to defend our country from the Russian aggressor.

A number of countries have imposed sanctions against Russia and are calling for an end to hostilities in Ukraine.

It should be noted that the Russian media called the Russian occupation of Crimea and Donbas "liberation", and the pro-Russian militants who were assigned to control the occupied cities - "militias".

Propagandists justified any military action against our country by "protecting the Russian-speaking population." This time, Putin's statements about "genocide" became a conditional reason for the invasion.
