Fake Russia launches a missile strike on the Beskydy Tunnel

The adviser, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Anton Gerashchenko, spread this information. On the evening of June 1, Russia launched a missile strike on the railway infrastructure of the Lviv region, killing people and temporarily disrupting the train schedule to and from Transcarpathia. That same evening, Anton Gerashchenko wrote that the Beskydy Tunnel had been hit in his telegram channel. Still, Ukrzaliznytsia's chairman Oleksandr Kamyshin and Lviv's OVA chairman Maksym Kozytskyi denied the allegations. Anton Gerashchenko did not refute his statements but instead edited the post: the updated text no longer mentions the Beskydy Tunnel. We recall that it is essential to use verified sources of information in times of war and not to disseminate information about enemy strikes unless official structures have confirmed it. Such fakes are harmful because they sow panic and shake up the situation in society.
