Information that does not seem very useful to civilians is actually used by the enemy, so it is not useful to report during the war the consequences of the bombings and the types of weapons that the Ukrainian defenders used to hit the targets enemies.
That’s according to Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar, who spoke via Facebook following a visit to the Southern Operational Command’s area of responsibility, Ukrinform reports.
“For civilians in war, the main rule of information is that the first to talk about military operations, their progress, consequences and results is our army. Information that may not seem useful or obvious to civilians are actually used by the For example, it is not necessary to name the types of weapons that the armed forces used to strike enemy targets, we can discuss this if the general staff has already talked about it Maliar said.
The official also urged not to credit the armed forces for hitting enemy civilian targets.
“Our armed forces observe the rules and customs of war established by international law,” said the deputy minister.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, Ukraine’s defenders from February 24 to July 20 eliminated around 38,750 Russian invaders, 200 of them in the last day alone.
