Former Russian Radio Host Advocates Ethnic Cleansing in Donbas

Summary of Disinformation

Russian journalist and radio personality Matvei Ganapolsky, who works in Ukraine, is advocating ethnic cleansing in the Donbas territories controlled by pro-Russian militants. In Ukraine, no one objects to such statements.


During his appearance on channel 112 Ganapolsky never used the term ethnic cleansing, he was actually  talking about the six thousand Ukrainian football fans who went to the World Cup in Russia.
