On the night of March 19, Russian leader Vladimir Putin flew by helicopter to Mariupol to oversee the rebuilding of the city. The head of state was accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin.
The British Air Force doubted not only the visit of the Russian president to Mariupol, “which was completely wiped off the face of the earth”, but also the stay of the Supreme Commander at the Headquarters of the Northern Military District in Rostov-on-Don . .
One of the objectives of the visit was to check the operation of the command post in normal mode. Photo: freeze frame video
“There is no confirmation of these visits,” the corporation’s website said. Then when the video came up, they sang another song. “The shooting was done in the dark, you can’t see anything. Perhaps this is another city, and the footage of the Philharmonic was also filmed in an unknown building,” the BBC suggested. “We also cannot confirm that the video of communication with the army, the reports of which Putin allegedly heard, was actually filmed at the command post in Rostov-on-Don.”
“Storytellers work in the Kremlin, these are staged shootings,” wrote the British The Sun. -“Putin drives through Mariupol, the roads are not blocked, he has to let tractors and trucks pass. Do you believe in that?

The US media do not doubt the reality of the visits, but consider them a “challenge”. CNN Announcer: “Bold Russian President Vladimir Putin made a defiant visit to the Donbass. This trip will be perceived by Ukrainians as especially provocative. The New York Times comments on the event in a similar vein: “This is a demonstrative gesture on the part of the Kremlin. Vladimir Putin visited Mariupol, where the Russian leader was closest to the front line in the east.
Well, a special hysteria, of course, reigns in Ukraine. Only there, in addition to everything else, they curse the Western intelligence services, which fell asleep on the trip of the Russian leader and did not inform kyiv about it in advance.
