Kremlin: confident that defence ministry report on Kramatorsk strike is correct

Jan 9 (Reuters) – The Kremlin said on Monday that it was confident its defence ministry was correct when it said that 600 Ukrainian servicemen had been “destroyed” in an attack on the city of Kramatorsk, despite reporting which showed the attack missed its target.

“The Kremlin has absolute confidence, I would like to remind you of the President’s words that the main source of information is the Ministry of Defence”, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters in a daily briefing.

A Russian missile attack on the Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk missed its targets and there were no obvious signs of casualties, a Reuters reporter said on Sunday, after Moscow claimed the strike had killed 600 Ukrainian soldiers.

  1. “The Kremlin has absolute confidence, I would like to remind you of the President’s words that the main source of information is the Ministry of Defence”,

    Is this the same Ministry of Defence that claim to have destroyed 3 times more Himars than Ukraine received, or destroyed more Ukrainian planes than the Ukrainian Air Force had in their fleet? THAT Ministry of Defence!

    • The obscenity of the kremlin nazi regime is such that they even have the gall to refer in their original bogus announcement that they were getting “vengeance.” How can a gang of psychopaths who have already inflicted medieval savagery on staggering numbers of innocent civilians make such an absurd claim.
      John Sweeney has good contacts with Ukrainian journalists and the point he made in his video is vitally important. A gigantic horde of orc vermin will be unleashed sooner or later and in order to win Ukraine must have lots of heavy metal. These nippy light tanks will be useful (they need far more than 50), but the Abrams and/or Leopards are essential.
      As for Britain, apparently we have 100 Challenger 1 tanks doing nothing. It is to be hoped that they are being worked on night and day to get them up to battle readiness.
      If not why not? We are a Budapest signatory after all.

  2. “Kremlin: confident that defence ministry report on Kramatorsk strike is correct”

    Frank: confident that the ruskies have shit for brains.
