Fake: Ukraine Has Not Complying with Minsk Agreements for Five Years

Russian RT is once again spinning one of its favorite narratives about the Russian made war in eastern Ukraine – that Ukraine has not implemented any of the Minsk agreements, the hasty peace deal signed by Ukraine, the Russian Federation and the self-proclaimed Russian separatist Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics in 2014 and 2015. According to this narrative Ukraine is the guilty party, not interested in peace or fulfilling the

Fake: Ukraine Agrees with Russia’s Position on the Donbas

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko’s recent BBC Ukrainian service interview gave rise to an avalanche of Russian fakes and manipulations. Ukraine is ready to abandon the Minsk agreements, it is ready to accept Russian President Vladimir Putin’s alternative proposals, including a peacekeeping mission on the contact line with the self-proclaimed people’s republics and Kremlin control of the border, Russian media claim. Russian reactions to Prystaiko’s interview are filled with phrases

Manipulation: OSCE Secretary General Calls Creation of New Church in Ukraine ‘Provocation’

Initiating the creation of an autocephalous church in Ukraine, Kyiv has once again provoked a deterioration in relations with Moscow, writes the Kremlin propagandist Ukraina.ru. The publication claims this was the message that OSCE Secretary General Thomas Greminger conveyed in his interview to the German Osnabrücker Zeitung newspaper. Ukraina.ru’s distorted version of Greminger’s interview was reprinted by PolitNavigator, Pravslavie I Mir, Rusvesna, DonPress, Donetsk24 and NewsFront. According to Russian media,

Fake: Kyiv Ignores Minsk Protocol Meeting

Kyiv is sabotaging the work of the Minsk Trilateral Group, announced the so-called human rights commissioner of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Daria Morozova.  (The Minsk Trilateral Contact Group is a group of representatives from Ukraine, the Russian Federation, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe formed to facilitate a diplomatic resolution to the Russian fueled war in the Donbas region of Ukraine.) Morozova claims that Ukrainian

Fake: Donbas Talks on Prisoner Exchange Collapse because of Ukraine

Scores of Russian media reported that the latest talks on prisoner exchanges between Ukraine  and the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics held in Minsk allegedly broke down because the Ukrainian MP negotiating prisoner exchanges and other humanitarian issues walked out of the talks. Moskovskyi Komsomolets,TASS, Gazeta.ru, Regnum, Zvezda and others all featured this fake story. Russian media cite Luhansk People’s Republic representative Olha Kobtseva who claims that the committee

Russian Media Distort Latvian President’s Statement on Minsk Agreement

Ukraina.ru recently published a misleading article claiming that the president of Latvia, Raimonds Vējonis, had complained that Ukraine was not meeting the terms of the Minsk Agreements, and yet it was Russia being punished for it. This is only partially correct. The story was then picked up by Rossiyskaya gazeta, Trud, Politikus.ru, and others. In fact, Vējonis expressed his doubts that both Russia and Ukraine and separatists were adequately following the

Fake: Putin Breaks Pencil During Minsk Talks

TSN, Censor.net, Unian, Obozrevatel, UNN, and other Ukrainian mass media disseminated news reporting that RF President Vladimir Putin allegedly broke a pencil during negotiations in Minsk. Journalists were inaccurately basing this on an edited screenshot by Russia’s RT and a translation of the meeting, despite of the fact that there is no such a moment in the video. Here is the video of the moment that was presumably used to

Fake: Kyiv Breaks Down Minsk Talks

On January 30, the Russian television channel LifeNews incorrectly reported that Kyiv was responsible for breaking down the next round of the Minsk talks regarding Donbas. LifeNews stated, “The parties agreed to meet on January 30, but the meeting did not take place. Kyiv officially announced that it would not take part in today’s round of the talks.” However, the OSCE site offers a completely different account. Experts from the

Russian Media Attack Belarus: A Warning For Minsk?

The past few weeks have seen an unusual increase of anti-Belarusian activity in pro-government Russian media and blogs. The Kremlin has not yet used its strongest media tools. However, the manner of the attack is in some respects similar to the information warfare which preceded Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In the face of the unfolding economic crisis in Russia and Belarus and the Belarusian presidential elections scheduled for 2015, this
