Unknown resistance fighters carry out an attack near Saint Petersburg

Unknown resistance fighters are said to have carried out an attack in Leningrad oblast, which surrounds St. Petersburg. This is reported by the Liberty of Russia Legion via Twitter. According to the group, its goal is to fight for a “free Russia”.

The group writes: “Unknown patriots have destroyed another signal control in the Leningrad region.” It continues, adding some video material: “The cost of a “cabinet” is about 150,000 rubles, but in the video you can see how twice that amount burns down. Ten arson attacks on signaling equipment a week – and Putin’s regime loses about a million rubles it could have spent on shells, drones, and other means of killing civilians.”

This information has not yet been verified by independent parties and must therefore be evaluated with reservations. In war, it may be advantageous for participating groups to disseminate false information in order to strengthen their own position or weaken that of the enemy.
