According to data from Information Resistance, the so-called “journalists” of the Russian mass disinformation media “Life News” have prepared another informational provocation about events in eastern Ukraine.
Airing today [May 20], this propagandist channel waging informational war against the Ukrainian people was planning a live broadcast from Horlivka, during which Russian subjects with a camera and mike would talk about the supposed seizure of the ammonium transport station Transamiak by Ukrainian nationalists and about the “threat of a man-made disaster” for the town in connection with such acts.
In fact, on May 19, a group of armed men attacked the production management of the state-owned Transamiak in Horlivka. A number of vehicles and computer equipment have been stolen. The building has been damaged. This information has been confirmed by the Horlivka city administration. However, this event didn’t affect the manufacturing process of the enterprise since the pumping of ammonia is currently on hold in connection with the stop of production by the “Stirol Concern.”
As reported by the IR group, yesterday Ukrainian special forces detained the terrorists in nearby Kramatorsk, among them, the journalists from “Life News” TV channel.
