On June 15, Russian television channel Zvezda falsely reported that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had gone binge drinking for a week.
The report gives BBC as the source. According to Zvezda, BBC gives a certain Israeli agency, Arutz 10, as its source, which in turn claimed that the information came from an anonymous source in the Cabinet of Ministers. However, its headline says that “the rumors were spread from [Verkhovna] Rada.” The material is accompanied by a video of a speech by Poroshenko to citizens in Mariupol in September 2014.
It should be pointed out that Petro Poroshenko has diabetes, and doctors recommend abstaining from alcohol with this condition.
