Ukraine’s North Operational Command has warned of Russian false flag attacks amid reports on March 2 on incidents involving “Ukrainian saboteurs” in Bryansk Oblast.
“The enemy may resort to provocations and try to discredit the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” the Ukrainian military said on Telegram.
Both the North Operational Command and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine told Ukrainian broadcaster Suspilne that they were unaware of any incidents on the territory of Russia.
Russian media outlets have yet to provide photo or video evidence of any incidents in Bryansk Oblast.
Several Russian media outlets and Telegram influencers began allege there had been incidents involving “Ukrainian saboteurs” in Russia’s Bryansk Oblast earlier on March 2.
In response, Ukraine’s General Staff reiterated that the Armed Forces of Ukraine were conducting combat operations exclusively on the territory of Ukraine.
“Everything that is happening in Russia is the resistance of the local population to Putin’s terrorist regime, non-compliance with fire safety measures, or other reasons beyond the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” the Ukrainian military said.
“In particular, online reports about events in Bryansk Oblast are an audacious provocation by Moscow.”
Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, called the reports about Ukrainian saboteurs in Russia “a classic and deliberate provocation.”
“Russia wants to scare its people to justify the attack on another country and the growing poverty after a year of war,” Podolyak wrote on Twitter.
“The partisan movement in Russia is getting stronger and more aggressive. Fear your partisans, (Russia).”
