Ukraines Ministry of Defence accuses the media of disinformation
The Ministrys press service has stated that the reports in some media outlets of supposed participation of Ukrainian military instructors and servicing of air defence on Georgian territory are total lies. The statement is posted on the Ministrys official site.
It explains that some media outlets have alleged that Russian fighter planes taking part in carpet bombings of Georgian territory were brought down by systems of air defence serviced by Ukraines Aimed Forces.
This, it should be said, is just one of the allegations running rife in the Russian media and on occasion being reported (generally in cut and paste style) by Ukrainian media outlets.
