Debunking the fake article on 2000 Russian soldiers killed in Donbas everyone fell for

Several days ago WarInUkraine team saw the following text on a website The article talks of a Russian Government decree to compensate the families of over 2000 Russian soldiers killed and 3200 wounded in Ukraine The text was as groundbreaking (wow, finally here’s Russia’s confession of their troops fighting in Ukraine!) as it was absurd.

Media Misrepresent Fitch’s New Ukraine Rating

On August 27, Russian and Ukrainian media reported on a new rating by Fitch for Ukraine. But they presented only some of the ratings agency’s outlook, thereby importantly distorting the information. reported, for example, that Fitch acknowledged the inevitability of a default: “International ratings agency Fitch downgraded Ukrainian foreign-currency country ceiling from under-default ‘CC’ to ‘C’ which means that default is inevitable.” However, while this is partly true, these

Dmitry Glukhovsky: Everything Is Possible

Rustem Adagamov tweeted this post by Dmitry Glukhovsky earlier today and it’s worth taking note of. Глуховский о том, как путинская пропаганда смогла оболванить русских быстрее, чем Геббельс оболванил немцев — Рустем Адагамов (@adagamov) 27 августа 2015 I remember two years ago, I loved to speculate: how, I wondered, the German people, who are not only proud of, but boast a complex culture, refined and Western literature, advanced philosophy,

BBC: What media get wrong about Ukraine anti-red laws

Ukraine’s anti-communism laws have received much flak in foreign media, but not all of it is well-deserved. The legislation orders the removal of communist symbols such as monuments and street names, and one frequently made criticism is that it may also affect the remembrance of Soviet Army soldiers who fought against Nazi Germany. In fact, the law makes an exception for World War II, and some of the critical reporting is based

Putin’s Magnificent Messaging Machine

By pretending to be real news, RT is much better than your grandfather’s Soviet propaganda. In trying to create a likeness of Soviet power, Vladimir Putin is doing one thing demonstrably better than the Kremlin masters of old: propaganda. During the Cold War Soviet outlets like Pravda would disseminate outlandish claims so crass and obviously false that even true comrades  turned the page or flipped the channel (and there were

Did Russia’s Biggest Search Engine Censor Itself to Protect Putin’s Spokesman?

Dmitry Peskov, the long-time spokesman for Vladimir Putin, can’t seem to get his name out of the news.
