Fake: G20 Admits Kyiv’s Violation of Minsk Agreements

Russian site Ukraina.ru published a story claiming that the leaders of France and Germany consider that Ukraine has failed to comply with the Minsk agreements, the hasty peace deal between Ukraine, Russia and Russian backed separatists signed in 2015. The story is based on a quote from Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov. The story has no quotes or direct references from the leaders of France or Germany. After a working

Some Things Are Better Left Untold

By Jim Kovpak “Telling the untold” is one of Sputnik News’ slogans. The obvious implication is that the Russian news service covers stories that “they” don’t want you to know about. “They” are the Western “mainstream media,” any media outlet which reports information that contradicts the claims of the Russian Foreign Ministry or the Kremlin. Of course it’s not unheard of for legitimate media outlets to ignore or play down

Fake: Polish Ambassador Wants Yugoslav Scenario for Ukraine

Russian media are busy disseminating a fake story claiming that Poland’s ambassador to Kyiv Jan Piekło wants a Yugoslavian scenario for Ukraine and calls on the United States to help towards that end.
