Errare Humanum Est

There is a famous Latin quote: Errare humanum est, perseverare autem diabolicum. To err is human, but to persist in error is diabolical. Russian TV "by mistake" recently demonstrated imagery from a video game as documentary footage from fighting in Nagorno Karabakh. And "mistakes" is a persistent element in pro-Kremlin disinformation.

Repeating a Lie Does Not Make it True

Regurgitation is the editorial policy of pro-Kremlin media. Old claims are re-chewed, spewed up and repeated. The ever-handy idea of "false flag operations" can be used and reused infintely. But repeating lies does not make them true.
