Russian mass media continues to misinterpret facts about Ukraine
June 12, 2014 – According to ‘Information Resistance’ group Russian mass media misinterpreted events in Ukraine and used 10 years old video material that has no relation to the ongoing anti-terrorist operation.
Dmytro Tymchuck informed of his Facebook page: Today Russian mass media spread information that Ukrainian forces had used phosphorus bombs against civilians. In order to prove this Russian TV used video materials that had been taken in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004.
Besides Tymchuck pointed out that recently Russian mass media informed that they had evidences of using of volley fire systems called ‘GRAD’ against civilians. This information doesn’t correspond to reality. According to Tymchuck there are no documented evidences of such actions of Ukrainian army.
The head of ‘IR’ group summed up that such speculations are more than strange taking into account that Russian army used ‘GRAD systems in bombarding of towns in Chechen Republic. As a result tens of thousands of civilians died. This fact is well known among international community and there’s plenty of photo and video evidence.
