DPR: Dmitry Novikov (Channel One) – “Convicted Mercenaries are Both Criminals and Victims of Western Propaganda!” (10.6.2022)

In response to the request of the presenter – Anatoly Kuzichev – to evaluate the words of the Head of the Foreign Office, Dmitry Novikov said: “A completely solidified and deterministic (false) information environment has formed in the West. Without this continuous disinformation, the bulk of foreign mercenaries would not be in Ukraine right now. There is a strong propaganda campaign going on. Loud words sound at the highest level. That is why, on the one hand, convicted mercenaries are criminals, their guilt has been proven. On the other hand, they are also victims of this propaganda. There are people in the West who carry a greater guilt about what is (and has been) happening in Ukraine. They are the actual organizers of the crimes committed by those who have now appeared before the Supreme Court of the DPR. It would be historically just to condemn these people who have been acting ‘behind the scenes’ as well as those who have actually committed the crimes.”
