The information about Ukrainian troops taking positions in Donetsk, which has been spread by certain media, is a fake. The Joint Forces Operation HQ reported this June 17.

The Command explained that hostile media spread this information to discredit the Ukrainian forces. The initial messages said that units of the Voluntary Ukrainian Corps of the Right Sector movement and servicemen of the King Danylo Detached Mechanized Brigade allegedly took positions in Donetsk. These messages contained personal data of the people who previously served with the volunteer units and then joined the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
