    Cherry picking as usual . This site is guilty of pro ukraine bias ; you select only those statements that are obviously false and anti ukraine propaganda and but not those that are clearly false but pro ukraine propaganda eg snake island heroes- no mention of this piece pro ukraine propaganda as false – clearly understated in assessment
