LONDON (Reuters) – British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss on Saturday accused Russia of embarking on a disinformation campaign aimed at destabilizing Ukraine and justifying a military invasion.

“Russia must end its aggression, start a de-escalation and engage in real discussions”, wrote the head of British diplomacy on Twitter.

The United States issued a similar warning on Friday after a cyber attack targeting Ukrainian institutions, the White House believing that Russia is seeking a “false pretext ” to launch a military operation if it does not achieve its objectives through diplomatic channels.
