In this difficult time for our state, unfortunately, there are still citizens who seek to enrich themselves at the expense of others illegally and to compromise the leadership of the region.
It should also be noted that attempts by some mass media to spread unverified information at a time of Russia's military aggression also have signs of attempting to destabilize the situation in our region, and may be cooperating with collaborators. For distribution of knowingly false information, which can lead to loss of business reputation, there is liability under applicable law.
