We would like to remind everyone that, in recent years, especially after Ukraine’s Euromaidan events and Russia’s subsequent annexation of the Crimea and military aggression in eastern Ukraine, LifeNews has become an obvious instrument of the Russian government’s propaganda and information

LifeNews, Vesti and Others. Is the Propaganda a Crime?

In the today’s war the media confirmed to have the status of the fourth estate. But the estate, which is not burdened with obligations or responsibilities, Artem Afian says in his blog on LIGA.net. Propaganda, is undoubtedly one of the pillars of today’s war. All of these tanks, machine guns, ribbons would remain simple props without absurd and hysterical scenes of Russian and pro-Russian media. Beating the LifeNews correspondent, smashing

The lie of LifeNews: Images of Ukrainian Army Bombardment in Ilovaisk

Lie: Lifenews uploaded their story about shooting in Slovyansk on Youtube before it actually happened

StopFake team considers it is important to mention that we have suspicions towards Russian media statements, especially LifeNews, regarding events in Slovyansk, because we feel like they have used extremely dubious arguments. However, the main argument that is currently used against LifeNews is not correct either.

Fake: Journalist Nataliya Gumenyuk Suggests Depriving Ukrainians of Voting Rights

Voice of America Misrepresents Russian Don Cossacks as Ukrainian “Rebels” Battling Kyiv

‘Out of My Mouth Comes Unimpeachable Manly Truth’

What he learned from watching a week of Russian TV, Gary Shteyngart wrote for The New York Times: On a cold, sunny New Year’s Eve in 2014, I am sitting at the edge of my king-size bed at the Four Seasons hotel in New York, munching through a stack of Wagyu beef slices and demolishing a bottle of pinot noir while watching a woman play a man playing a bearded

Russia’s latest disinformation campaign attempts to justify ceasefire violations

While the West enjoyed the celebration of love on Valentine’s Day, events in Eastern Ukraine were far removed from the lovefest. In spite of the ceasefire, fierce fighting continued in the area of Debaltseve, where several thousand Ukrainian troops are cut off from the only road to Ukrainian-held territory. Continually arriving shipments of sophisticated weaponry by the regular Russian army allow the militants the ability to maintain a protracted standoff.
