Despite the long-term occupation of Crimea and the war in Donbass, which is fully supported by Russia, the Kremlin continues to claim that Russia and Ukraine have not stopped “family relations . 

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.

However, according to a study by the Ukrainian Institute of the Future, Ukrainians themselves clearly distinguish themselves from Russians and do not consider themselves the only people with them.

  • Presumably by now Ukrainians are fully aware of the festering hatred and contempt that the putinazi regime and all its supporters have for them? One can only hope so. They only have to view kremkrapper TV output for confirmation of this. Anti-Ukraine hate, lies, conspiracy theories, trickery and deception are their stock in trade. Hate targets are always the same : Ukraine, America, Britain and, just to prove it’s a true nazi regime: da jooz.

  • “Peskov also said an increase in “the number of Ukrainians deceived by propaganda” who “are beginning to hate Russia.”

    Murdering Ukrainians who want to remove themselves from the Russian yoke is not propaganda. Ukraine are not being deceived by propaganda, more and more are seeing through the Kremlin lies and hatred for their country. Russia thoroughly despise it’s former slave states becoming more affluent than them. They despise the fact that these former slave states have a far higher standard of living than the sheep, and are doing the best to make sure Ukraine don’t follow in the footseps of the Baltic states.

  • Whatever. Even without the ruSSian invaders Ukraine remains a corrupt shithole. This would not change, even if the Crimea was returned. The oligarchs, Zelensky and Putin are one family…

  • As the old saying goes, with friends like the mafiosi, you don’t need any enemies. Calling the Ruskies and Ukrainians a family is even more bizarre. The Kremlin certainly has some strange drugs circulating there.

    • Peskov is parroting the same sort of propaganda the USSR used to spew. The current bunch are simply old Soviets and it is no surprise they would speak as they do. Lying is the best they can do.
