Russia announced Putin's trip to the front line: journalists caught the Kremlin in a lie
"Putin's visit to the front" took place in Russia's Rostov-on-Don.
After Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited the Ukrainian military in Bakhmut, information appeared on the network that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin was also at the forefront. At the same time, investigative journalists are sure that the "visit to the front" took place in Rostov-on-Don.
According to "Agency. News", the President of the Russian Federation spent the whole day in the joint headquarters of the military branches.
"Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin visited the "special operation" zone. According to the Kremlin, this happened on Friday, when the president worked all day at the joint headquarters of the military branches. It is located at the headquarters of the Southern Military District in Rostov-on-Don," the statement said.
It is noted that Andrey Gurulev, a member of the Russian parliament, was the first to announce Putin's alleged visit to the front line. The official wrote that Putin was "in the zone of a 'special military operation'."
Later, Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov noted that Gurulev's words were true.
"If he means the headquarters where he was on Friday, then yes," he said.
However, Russian investigative journalists studied the video of Putin's visit to the headquarters. They found out that the dictator visited the headquarters of the troops of the Southern Military District in Rostov-on-Don.
“The large round table from the headquarters of the Southern Military District and the interiors of the room in which it is located coincide with what is seen during Putin’s visit to the headquarters of the armed forces. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also visited the same headquarters in November. Then it was also claimed that the minister was in "the zone of the "special operation", - the journalists emphasized.
