Russia uses lobbyists to wage war against Ukraine abroad, - SBU head adviser Tandit

Russia is waging war against Ukraine abroad, using its lobbyists in many countries, who, in fact, discredit our country.

This was announced by SBU head adviser Yurii Tandit on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.

"This war against us is being waged abroad, because a large number of Russia's lobbyists in many countries actually discredit our country. While we are speaking here, compromising documents are being prepared to be further taken in sizable volumes to European institutions with the intention to defamet us. Different materials are disseminated, saying we allegedly humiliate people in the east and fail to enforce the law here. But if you have a closer look at the information channels of Russia and its politicians, you'll see that uneasy conscience betrays itself," Tandit said.

He also notes there is an ongoing "hybrid warfare" in Ukraine.

"We've got a lot of smart people who use their rich experience and skills, assess the situation. Let me remind everyone that there is a full-scale "hybrid warfare" going on in Ukraine. We are playing a role of a testing ground not only for the neighboring country, which is at war against us, but also for others watching and analyzing the situation here. And I should say this war is going on not only near the contact line, in Avdiivka or else, but also in Crimea and within our state, involving politicians and oligarchs or influential financial groups," he noted.
