The authorities of the "LNR" stated that information about the issuance of free food sets to socially unprotected groups of citizens is false and provocative. This is stated in the message of the so-called "Ministry of Industry and Trade".
It notes that the "ministry" sent to "law enforcement agencies" a statement on the distribution of unknown leaflets containing unreliable information about the allegedly free distribution of food kits by the state enterprise "Social Network of Supermarkets Narodny" (stolen from the Ukrainian business ATB supermarkets network - OstroV).
The leaflets said that in honor of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, food sets from Russia would be distributed for free for 3 days, and then "goods from humanitarian aid will be sold for money again".
The "LNR" officially stated that "information about the free distribution of food products... is deceptive, provocative and untrue".
