Russian internet resources began to publish interviews with a Ukrainian pilot, the Ukrainian center for counteracting disinformation reports this. In the video, the Ukrainian talks about his desire to be friends with his neighbors — Russia and the dirty business of NATO, the European Union, and Ukrainian authorities. Similar videos had already been launched in 2014 when Russia captured Donetsk, the Luhansk region, and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. Then the Russians used torture to get the right words from the Ukrainians.
Another scenario already known is humanitarian assistance to Ukrainians. On the evening of March 3, the official information about the preparation of another manipulation appeared. In Kherson, a group of Russian people is gathered to record a video in which they will talk about Russian liberators, thank them for food, and call for the creation of the Kherson People’s Republic.
Also in the Russian Federation, the 1rus.ru channel shows a cartoon for children, which speaks of the anger of the Ukrainians and the good intentions of Russia.
