"In light of the publication by several online media of a video report purporting to document the so-called capture of Ukrainian soldiers and military equipment near Donetsk, we declare that this information does not correspond with reality. The video uploaded on January 10 to one of the propaganda Russian television stations chronicling the latest developments in Donbas is, in fact, two-year old footage of events in [the town of] Debaltseve," the statement reads. The press service says the aim of Russian propaganda specialists in publishing this report is to "raise the low morale of Russian and separatist forces in [eastern Ukraine]."
