Summary of Disinformation

In response to requests from Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered gas to be shipped from Crimea to Henichesk, a city in southern Ukraine. Russian sites featured a video of Sergey Aksyonov, Moscow’s Prime Minister of Crimea, personally asking the Russian President to respond to a “humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in Henichesk.”

Disproof

Henichesk Regional Administration chairman Oleksander Vorobyov dismissed Russia's alleged help as a complete fake. The city is not receiving gas from Crimea, moreover, Crimea has no gas of its own to share with the mainland. bit.ly/2fd0VIR,
