You Should Forget about News Broadcasted in Russia - Russian POW Paratrooper

Yegor Pochtoev, one of the Russian paratroopers detained earlier in Ukraine, directly accused Russian media of lying.

"They explained what we have seen in the news. As for the news they broadcast in Russia, you have to forget about them," paratrooper Yegor Pochtoev said, responding to a question about whether their commanders informed about the situation in Ukraine, Censor.NET reports, referring to Tvrain.ru.
