This was announced by the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov on the Belarusian TV channel ONT .
“You know, for example, what kind of” friendship “we have with Ukraine now. But this does not mean that we have lost our family relations with the Ukrainian people,” the Kremlin speaker said.
lPeskov also said an increase in “the number of Ukrainians deceived by propaganda” who “are beginning to hate Russia.”
“Anyway, we are all Slavs, and we are really relatives,” he added.
As you know, it is not the first time that the Russian leadership has voiced propaganda about fraternal peoples. In July this year, a large article by Russian President Vladimir Putin was published on the Kremlin’s website , in which he tried to justify the fraternal relations between the two nations.
