The occupiers’ resources are spreading disinformation about Ukraine’s alleged preparation for a terrorist attack in Uman on September 15 during the celebration of the Jewish new year Rosh Hashanah. The invaders blame the “Kiev regime”, but with such fakes they prepare an informational alibi for their terrorist attacks, reports Center for Countering Disinformation under the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
Russian propaganda states that after the terrorist attack, the Ukrainian side allegedly plans to accuse the Russian Federation of “crimes against humanity.”
The agency urges not to succumb to the manipulations of the occupiers, to respond to air raid signals, to follow safety rules and to trust only sources of verified information.
Russia, by spreading such fakes, is trying to create an informational alibi for future terrorist attacks on the territory of Ukraine, the Center for Public Policy notes.
REFERENCE. Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish New Year. It is celebrated for two consecutive days on the new moon of the autumn month of Tishrei (September/October) according to the Jewish calendar. In 2023, it begins on the evening of September 15th and continues until the evening of the 17th. Along with Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah is one of the most important Jewish holidays.
Hasidim visit Uman on Rosh Hashanah because the grave of Tsaddik Nachman, the founder of this movement of Judaism, is located there.
