Ukraine is committing one more crime by depriving Crimean residents of the right to drinking water. There is a need for diplomatic negotiations to restore the water supply of Crimea in order to stop this crime being committed.
On Sunday, Margarita Simonyan shared a Telegram post by Dmitry Steshin, a war correspondent for the newspaper KP, which purported to give “advice” to rioters in the US on how to make their uprising more “successful” along the lines of the 2014 US-backed coup in Ukraine.
Given that the post was entirely in Russian, it was obvious that the real objective of Steshin – and Simonyan – was to comment on the Maidan uprising in Kiev and the ensuing war in Ukraine. Not so, declared the self-proclaimed experts on “open-source” intelligence. Bellingcat selectively translated a handful of sentences from Steshin’s post and accused Simonyan of – what else? – racism.
Disinformation about the independent investigative journalism site Bellingcat.
Bellingcat is an independent international collective of researchers, investigators and citizen journalists using open source and social media investigation to probe a variety of subjects, including chemical weapon attacks in Syria, Russia's influence operations in Ukraine and elsewhere, the downing of the flight MH17, Salisbury poisoning and others.
There is no basis to claims that Bellingcat reporting is in any way fueling protests in the US.
The founder of the Bellingcat has exposed RT chief editor's post on social media sharing racial slurs.
RT article also falsely identifies the Euromaidan protests in Ukraine in 2014 as a coup. See the full debunk here.
