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.

Russia and the Menace of Unreality

At the NATO summit in Wales last week, General Philip Breedlove, the military alliance’s top commander, made a bold declaration. Russia, he said, is waging “the most amazing information warfare blitzkrieg we have ever seen in the history of information warfare.” It was something of an underestimation. The new Russia doesn’t just deal in the petty disinformation, forgeries, lies, leaks, and cyber-sabotage usually associated with information warfare. It reinvents reality,

About a month ago major Russian mass media (Russia One, LifeNews, RT, ITAR-TASS and others) informed that the UN had tried to prove that Russia delivered arms to “volunteer corps” in Ukraine and, according to Russian journalists, had failed. “We did not succeed to gather firm evidences of arms delivery”, journalists cited the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay in support of their statements. The Office of the

Russia’s top 100 lies about Ukraine

The American website Examiner.com published Russia’s top lies about Ukraine. Russia’s propaganda machine shows no signs of slowing down.

Russia’s top lies about Ukraine. Part 4

The American website Examiner.com published Russia’s top lies about Ukraine. Russia’s aggressive disinformation campaign about recent events in Ukraine reached epic proportions.

Even after this fabrication was exposed, only Russia Today removed the article and published a retraction. It should

Russia’s war against Ukraine and the whole world

Russian video montage: 1.5 mln Donbas residents should be killed, Ukrainian journalist said

Speaking only about the Donetsk Region, there are approximately 4 million people

The Infowar Rages in Moscow

From flying corpses to Spanish air traffic controllers, Russian media are doing their best to muddy the waters around what happened to MH17. MOSKOW — One of the first of the various bizarre theories to emerge from the Russian media’s coverage of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 downing was also one of the most outlandish: the Tale of the Spanish Dispatcher. The night of the disaster, a certain “Carlos,” presenting

The lie: Ukrainian army shot down civil Malaysia Airlines flight

Lots of mass media accused Ukraine of the Malaysia Airlines Boeing-777 crash that happened on July 17 over Donetsk Oblast. But such statement is not consistent with reality.

Pro-Russian Separatist Supporters Seek Western Support On Social Media

Over news agency footage of a signing ceremony in Brussels a narrator speaking in English reports drily that Ukraine has agreed to a series of trade agreements with the European Union. The voice, heavily accented in Russian, then adds a point of context seemingly apropos of nothing:  “Recall you that the Palestinian Authority has signed the Association Agreement with the EU in 1997.” It is one clip in a daily

The lie of Russian mass media: Ukrainian soldiers kill their own men unwilling to fight

Russian mass media (presumably NTV channel) announced in the news item concerning seizure and interrogation of Ukrainian female pilot Nadiya Savchenko that Ukrainian soldiers killed their own men who tried to put down arms and to retire from the battlefield. “Yet they do not allow to put down arms and to withdraw.
