Summary

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.

Disproof

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.

Russian Ministry of Defence: Putin ordered his minister of defence to prepare Syria to become an „impenetrable zone of conflict”, which would become „Obama´s cemetery” and signalled the end of the NATO alliance against Russian federation. This order was secured by an agreement of Putin and Israeli PM Netanyahu that Israel will not intervene with Russian air and ground operations in Syria even in the case of a war with NATO.

Europeans prohibit Christmas concerts and do not put up Christmas trees. And Ukrainians ban Ded Moroz (a fictitious character similar to Santa Claus).

Disproof

Europeans do not prohibit Christmas concerts and they do put up Christmas trees. Repeating older disinformation about Ded Moroz.
