Artificial ventilation of MH17 lies

By EU vs Disinfo What do you do when your disinformation campaign is running both out of time and oxygen? You start artificial respiration. As we head toward the trial of four suspects for downing MH17 and murdering all 298 people on board, set to start in March next year, there is increasingly less room for the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign to mislead audiences about Russia’s responsibility for the tragedy.

Disinforming with a pot on your head

By EU vs Disinfo Modern digital technology can make it almost impossible to discern disinformation from facts.

Russia’s latest attempt to smear Bellingcat over MH17 – unsuccessful

By Polygraph Dmitry Polyanskiy First Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Mission to the UN “We also have a lot of reasons not to trust particularly Bellingcat which was repeatedly caught red-handed by Internet users by voicing anti-Russian or anti-Syrian allegations based on fakes.
