"We were the first to learn that Russian troops were approaching Kakhovka," says "Most" editor-in-chief
On February 24, journalists of the online publication "Most" were the first to learn that Russian troops were already approaching Kakhovka. However, they were in no hurry to publish this information amdist panic and rumours.
Serhiy Nikitenko spoke about this in an interview with IMI.
"We were the first to find out, sometime before lunch, that Russian troops were approaching Kakhovka, but we didn't report on it until we were sent a video where we recognized the highway intersection to Kakhovka. Then it became evident that the video was real and that it was not our military," said Serhiy Nikitenko.
He noted that on the first day of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, email inboxes of many media outlets in Kherson oblast received letters from Russians and "L/DPR" groups, urging them to switch to their side. According to Serhiy Nikitenko, their editors had no time to respond to them.
After lunch, a strong DDos attack on the media began. And for a while, "Most" was posting news on their Telegram channel and on Facebook.
