The Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova once again told to the reporters during a briefing that the Russian special military operation in Ukraine isn’t aimed at capturing Ukraine, or over-throwing its president.

She added that today’s leader in fakes is the German newspaper «Bild». The Bild published an article that reported how the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, supposedly flew to China, but above the city of Novosibirsk his plane turned around and returned to Moscow. The Russian Foreign Ministry denies the very fact of such a visit.
