No credible info about civilian casualties in Ukraine - Russian permanent rep to UN

NEW YORK. Feb 28 (Interfax) - Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya has said he has no information about civilian casualties in the fighting in Ukraine.

"Reports about hundreds [of] civilians - there are a lot of reports today, and I said that there are a lot of fake news and a lot of fake factories that produce those news. We do not have credible reports on civilian casualties," Nebenzya said at a press conference on Monday.

"Of course, war is a bad thing, and anything can happen, but to consider those reports credible is very difficult, since we are witnessing and we are encountering massive propaganda campaign using, as I said, troll factories that produce those news," he said.
