From Sputnik News:
The former Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights, Lyudmila Denisova, has admitted she “exaggerated” reports of sex crimes allegedly committed by Russian soldiers in an effort to “convince the world to provide weapons and pressure” on behalf of the regime in Kiev. In an interview published in a Ukrainian outlet Friday, Denisova claimed her exaggerations succeeded on at least one occasion:
“When, for example, I spoke in the Italian parliament at the Committee on International Affairs, I heard and saw such fatigue from Ukraine, you know? I talked about terrible things in order to somehow push them to make the decisions that Ukraine and the Ukrainian people need.” Italy’s Five Star Movement, Denisova claimed, was originally “against the provision of weapons to us, but after [her] speech, one of the party leaders… said that they will support [us], including by the provision of weapons.”
Denisova was removed from her post as human rights ombudswoman for spreading misinformation following a no-confidence vote of 234-to-9 by Ukraine’s parliament on May 31. As Newsweek reported in the days that followed, one member of the Ukrainian parliament, Pavlo Frolov, provided a number of reasons why Denisova was removed, including “the numerous details of ‘unnatural sexual offenses’ and child sexual abuses in the occupied territories, which were unsupported by evidence.” Frolov reportedly claimed that such misinformation has “only harmed Ukraine.”
But there’s little doubt that Denisova’s penchant for “exaggeration” has harmed Russia as well. Since the beginning of the Russian Federation’s special military operations in Ukraine in February, the disgraced ombudswoman’s dramatized claims have been presented as fact in dozens of mainstream publications, including CNN and the Washington Post.
The media was quick to put this woman’s BS claims out but couldn’t care less about correcting the record.
Zelensky and his underlings have been lying nonstop about every aspect of the war from the very beginning in an attempt to con the West into World War III. What really makes this story truly noteworthy is that Denisova was actually punished.
