According to the Russian Ministry of Defence, US bombers conducted an attack on the Syrian Arab Army and attempted to kill elite Russian infantry units that discovered a “rat channel” used by CIA for transfering Islamic state leaders from the war zone to Tennessee, USA.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.
