On September 17, the Russian television network NTV, during its program Segodnia, incorrectly presented British doctor Robert Lefever as a political scientist.
During the report, Lefever said that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) earned its living by serving the British government’s machine.
The report focused on a recent blacklist imposed by the Ukrainian government barring specified foreign journalists from working in Ukraine, which included three BBC journalists (since removed from the list following public outcry).

Here is a 2013 video in which Lefever discusses the treatment of depression.
