How to Rob Peter to Pay Paul

By EU vs Disinfo What do you do when one of your heaviest disinformation attacks backfires? You send out way more disinformation attacks and hope that they will silence the outrage about such obvious attempts to deceive and mislead the international community.

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.
