On March 16, the internet resource ukr.media published a sham report about Ukraine’s former president, Viktor Yushchenko, with the headline “Yushchenko is sent to fight in Donbas in order to do penance for his guilt.” The Truth in Ukraine then ran with the story and headline, and it has since spread to other sites and social networks in different variations.
