Long-range weaponry from Ukraine's allies causes enough pain for Russia's army. Russian propaganda deliberately resorts to spreading rumors about alleged arms smuggling in order to disrupt supplies. Mikhail Podolyak, an advisor to the head of the President's Office, said this on Twitter.
"Western long-range artillery and MLRS are causing a lot of terrible pain to Russian military depots and logistics centers. Therefore, the key goal of Russian information operations today is to disrupt arms supplies by discrediting our Armed Forces as a reliable partner and user," Podolyak writes.
According to Podolyak, the Kremlin is trying to play on the fear of Western society by spreading the primitive about the "black market.
At the same time, the reality is quite different:
Ukrainian fighters are motivated and quick to learn;
every single weapon, is valuable to our army;
Ukraine provides full control and information to allies at all stages.
Western long-range artillery and MLRS bring strong pain to military warehouses and logistics centers. Therefore, the key goal of Russian information operations today — to disrupt the weapons supply by discrediting our Armed Forces as a reliable partner and user. 1/2— Михайло Подоляк (@Podolyak_M) July 22, 2022
