Ukrainian PSYOPS: Confuse Russia from Belgorod to Bakhmut

Ukraine’s intelligence chief denied any involvement, but military analysts see the attack as a PSYOP, or a psychological operation, that could stretch Russia’s forces before Ukraine launches a counteroffensive.

Also, Ukrainian officials share footage of Russian civilians fleeing after the operation, and counter-narrative videos surface on social media, challenging Russia's claim of victory in Bakhmut.
