The disengagement of the forces and means in Stanytsia Luhanska and improvement of the situation in the territory controlled by Ukraine is the best method to win the information war in Donbas as 112 Ukraine reported citing Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“What does the disengagement in Stanytsia Luhanska mean? What did happen? Firstly, we have to do it. I mean to provide the normal checkpoint. Secondly, the most important, it the coolest information means until we are not shown there or showed in a bad light. It is the most advantageous form when you are setting an example: see we have opened the checkpoint, see what we have done, there are buses from our side, people travel, we help, we have constructed the bridge,” Zelensky said.
According to him, the money, which was not used earlier, was spent on the construction of the road in Stanytsia Luhanska.
“And it is the best example when people live in Stanytsia Luhanska, they live there…it is the best example. Why? A person lived there, now, his/her parents live there. Now, the person works in the territory controlled by Ukraine. And daily, he/she works here, then came to the parents to that side and what does this person say, what do you think?,” the president asked.
The answer was: “The person says about things he/she saw”. Zelensky said: “Right. Today it is on TV. These are the best steps. But, if only we will talk about the division and its purpose. I think these are the most important steps because you know what the information war is and it should be won. I see no other way”.
