MOSCOW, August 26 (RIA Novosti) – All accusations of Russia’s attempts to escalate the crisis in Ukraine, circulating in Western media, are blatant lies and a part of an information war, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“Unfortunately, mass media continue to spread rumors, distorted information and even outright lies. Recently there were claims by Ukraine that its artillery destroyed an armored column that had allegedly crossed from Russia into Ukraine, and two British newspapers even said they witnessed the incursion. No evidence, however, was presented, and even the US State Department could not confirm the incident. We view all such stories as part of an information war,” Lavrov said in an interview with Russia Beyond the Headlines, which will be published in The Daily Telegraph.
