Disproof

Russia has consistently tried to compromise the NGO with accusations. The NGO is widely respected and received last year's Right Livelihood Award http://bit.ly/2h5udy1. The White Helmets once produced a so-called staged "mannequin challenge" video. They also apologized for the "error of judgement": http://cnn.it/2gtZ07j // This does not mean that all their other videos, filmed by cameras on their helmets, are false. The White Helmets are the only independent observers present in that part of Syria.
