Russia's Top 60 Lies About Ukraine

Examiner has posted its newest installment in a series of fake news posted by Russian media outlets, and Putin's favorite trolls. Some of our favorites:

- RIA Novosti, a Russian state-run outlet, continuously publishes graphic photos of people whom they say were killed by the 'junta' in Kiev. Of course, not only are the photos often from different conflicts, many of the people shown in the photos were actually killed by the Russian military in previous conflicts, or by key Russian allies (like Assad), or in conflicts that Russia opposed ending (Bosnia). We spot-checked the articles, and RIA Novosti does not seem to have pulled down any of the fake information.

- The entire fake news conference between State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki and AP reporter Matt Lee (we've written about this too).

- Pictures of Russian atrocities in Chechnya passed off as mass graves in Ukraine.

- A joke headline on a joke website (a la "The Onion") passed off as real news.

- False claims posted by RT about a non-existent report, supposedly written by the RAND Corporation, suggesting that the government in Kiev impose imhumane and Draconian laws -- RT never wrote a retraction (they never do) but pulled some of the documents backing their allegations (which is somehow worse in this case. Typically when RT retracts something, they do it quietly, very late, and only when under heavy scrutiny).

OSCE Condemns Attack On Newspaper In Kiev

The office for the Vesti newspaper in Kiev has repeatedly come under attack, most recently on July 5th. The incidents have been condemned by the OSCE:

OSCE Representative on Freedom of the Media Dunja Mijatović today condemned a recent attack on the editorial office of the Vesti newspaper in Kyiv.

On July 5, a group of individuals wearing masks attacked the editorial office of Vesti newspaper in Kyiv with smoke grenades and stones. The office guard was assaulted and sustained injuries, windows were shattered and some of the newspaper’s equipment was damaged.

“I condemn this attack and call on the authorities to carry out a full investigation to identify and bring those responsible to justice,” Mijatović said, welcoming the law enforcement’s immediate launch of an investigation into the matter.

Earlier, in late June, a group of individuals attempted to make their way into the premises of Vesti’s editorial office, but were stopped by the police.
