The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has warned about the potential spread of fake information in order to discredit the servicemen of the Armed Forces and representatives of the armies of NATO member states participating in United Efforts 2020. This was reported on the General Staff’s official website.
The official message asks people not to disseminate fake information and to check the data carefully.
"We urge you not to shift your focus, to use only verified information obtained from official sources, in accordance with Ukrainian and international standards and principles of journalistic ethics: reference to sources, separation of facts from comments, accuracy, completeness of facts, and objectivity in presenting information," reads the message.
As we reported earlier, Hackers from Rivne region (northern Ukraine) have spread fake information about the alleged emergency at Rivne nuclear power plant.
The culprits also stated that residents of Varash town were being evacuated due to the "radiation leak" at the plant.
