Russian secret services spreading disinformation to raise panic in Ukraine



Russian special services are spreading disinformation to raise panic in Ukraine and escalate the situation.

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) reported that Russian security services are regularly disseminating all sorts of disinformation aimed at raising panic in Ukraine, causing unrest, and escalating the situation. “You can call it a ‘game of nerves’,” said one SBU official. “They often use manipulation to scare people with ‘urgency’: ‘Something bad will happen here tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow . . . .”

The SBU successfully exposed a group of provocateurs consisting of 40 people in Kyiv during the night of March 27, 2014, UNIAN reported. The provocateurs tried to destabilize the situation in the Kyiv by provoking clashes and unlawful actions against civilians and law enforcement officers.
