Disinfo: Czech President Miloš Zeman and his supporters know that Russia…


Czech President Miloš Zeman and his supporters know that Russia wasn’t involved in causing pro-Russian uprising in Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, that Russia isn’t responsible for downing MH17, that the illegitimate Kyiv regime started with repressions against its own citizens who have merely defended themselves. The war was provoked by Kyiv. That’s why Zeman is in general against EU sanctions. He then supports Bashar Assad and Russia, because he knows that Turkey buys ISIS oil, with support of NATO.


Repeating all pro-Kremlin disinformation campaigns for the past two years. For Russia's involvement in Ukraine war see e.g. bit.ly/1S3XeWe, , or bit.ly/1m3b2Bd,

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.

The article elaborates on the phenomenon of crisis actors, hired by media for creating false news. It shows the examples of BBC faking the photos from Syria or false death of a student during the Velvet revolution.


The news about BBC faking photos from Syria was published by Russia Today and British regulator OFCOM ruled that this RT's claim is false and that the broadcasting rules were violated by it (bit.ly/1UUYdHA), . The information about the dead student is false, but it wasn't made up by media but by the college dormitory doorkeeper.
