The comment recalls that on April 5, at the request of the Russian Federation, a special meeting of the UN Security Council was convened, during which the majority of member countries spoke in favor of conducting an independent international investigation into the Bucha facts.
In addition, it is emphasized that “there simply cannot be an objective investigation in the West”, since the “culprits” were immediately named.
The loud announcement of the article in the US edition, as well as the video attached to the text of the New York Times, are called fakes, “clearly staged” in the comments of the Foreign Ministry. It was also emphasized that “there is nothing to prove that the accusations against the Russian army are replicated in the West at the suggestion of Ukrainian “clients”.
Here “we are dealing with a well-made propaganda product, built on quite plausible video materials”, which are “subjected to skillful manipulation… counting on an emotional reaction”.
All conclusions about the causes of death of individual persons, the Foreign Ministry further comments, “are based on the assumptions of the journalists themselves” and exclusively on them.
As an example, video frames are cited showing the Russian army firing in an unknown direction, immediately behind the scenes there is a voice saying that this shot killed such and such a person, who is later found on the street in Bucha.
As a result, the conclusion is drawn: since “the reliability of the sources and the reliability of the data on which the authors rely is doubtful,” then “the initiators of such information attacks should be aware that sooner or later They will have to answer for the slander.”
