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.

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