Crimea's leader blames Ukraine of "fairy tales" on "Iranian instructors"


(MENAFN) Sergey Aksyonov, Crimea's president, has dismissed Kiev's accusations that Iranian military instructors were killed in a Ukrainian hit on the Russian peninsula while assisting Moscow's forces with drone operations.

Statements to that effect by Ukraine's National Security and Defense Council secretary, Aleksey Danilov, were "extraordinary nonsense," Aksyonov posted on Telegram on Friday.

Such “fairy tales” coming from Kiev are most likely aimed at a Western audience, which “gladly listens to them,” he recommended.

“The more the chair wobbles under the [Kiev] regime, the more fantastic those tales will become,” Aksyonov asserted.

He was responding to Danilov's interview with The Guardian on Thursday, in which the Ukrainian official was asked to comment on accusations in Israeli media last month that Iranian military instructors were killed in a Ukrainian attack in Crimea. According to Kan, Tehran deployed specialists to the peninsula to educate Russian forces on how to use Iranian-made drones.
