1. DO NOT GIVE COMMENTS TO RUSSIAN JOURNALISTS
Every comment you make will be used by their propaganda to create an ideal picture of the “Russian world” in your home. Do not doubt, your words will be twisted to the advantage of the occupier. You will be made either a victim of the “Ukrainian Nazis” or a happy resident of the city, who joyfully welcomes the occupiers. If it is impossible to avoid an interview, make unambiguous statements about support for Ukraine or dissatisfaction with the actions of the occupiers, believe me, after that the propagandist will abandon the idea of asking you for a comment.
2. IF YOU SEE A RUSSIAN “JOURNALIST” IN HOT SPOTS – RUN AWAY FROM HIM!
In continuation of the previous point, we explain to you that a Russian “journalist” does not just appear in a war zone. One of the examples is the shelling of the “Donetskhirmash” transport stop in Donetsk on January 22, 2015 . Russian troops cynically killed 15 people at a public transport stop in order to blame it on Ukraine. Immediately after the shelling, Russian propagandists appeared on the scene and immediately accused our troops of the shelling. Although there was no weapon that could reach Donetsk and cause such damage, the Ukrainian troops did not have it.
And today, the appearance of a camera crew of Russian TV channels is also a sign of probable provocations with victims among the civilian population.

3. UNSUBSCRIBE FROM ALL RUSSIAN PUBLICATIONS, SOCIAL NETWORKS, TELEGRAM CHANNELS AND “JOURNALISTS”.
You may not notice it, but they create information noise for you that shapes your information picture and affects your worldview. Therefore, all Russian YouTube channels, Telegram groups and other sources of propaganda should disappear from your space.
4. FILTER THE INFORMATION YOU CONSUME.
The information field is oversaturated with news. And if you have even unsubscribed from official social media, this does not mean. that you have not remained a subscriber to some Telegram channel controlled by the enemy. Therefore, in order to effectively confront the enemy in the information field, it is necessary to understand how the enemy works. For this, we recorded a separate issue of SabotageVlog, in which we explain how the Russian special services conduct their information operations and create fakes.
Trust only the official state channels of Ukraine.
5. RUSSIAN PROPAGANDISTS ARE AN IMPORTANT TARGET
If possible, inform the Ukrainian forces about the observed propagandists, what they were interested in, what media they represent, where they are coming from and where they are going.
Remember, if you isolate the Russian propagandists, they will not be able to create a false reality and thus, you will help our Armed Forces.
Glory to Ukraine!
