This was reported by the Center for Combating Disinformation in telegram.
The first fake is that people donated funds to “bairaktars”, and they bought “some incomprehensible satellite”. In fact, the company Baykar Makina will provide Ukraine with three drones for free, and the decision to purchase the satellite was made not only by the Serhiy Prytula Foundation, but also by specialists of the Ministry of Defense, in particular its head Oleksiy Reznikov, SBU, intelligence – in a few steps.
It is also not true that the satellite is “rented” and not purchased. The Ukrainians bought it and will be able to use it until the end of the “life” of the satellite. In addition, the ICEYE company allowed to use a “constellation” of more than 30 of its satellites during the year.
The disinformation message is that the Armed Forces have received photos from Ukrainian partners before, and the acquisition of the satellite is allegedly an excuse for “writing off” the funds.
“Yes, information from the satellites of the partners of the Armed Forces was received, but less quickly and only that which was provided to us. The question arose of the relevance and speed of the data. Learn about the targeted use of funds on the page Fund“, – emphasized in the Center under the NSDC.
