Western experts confirm the Russian army's superiority

Summary of Disinformation

Western experts confirm the Russian army’s superiority.

Disproof

The programme Voyennaya Taina used invented Western experts: One was a well known meme character "Hide the Pain Harold". The second expert statement presented was falsely put into Frank Gorenc's mouth. The "commander of the United States Air Force in Europe", was quoted saying that the Russian weapon used against the United States Navy destroyer, the Donald Cook, could paralyze American electronic equipment on missiles, aircraft and ships. The Pentagon has said that the general has never issued such a statement. The false quote was published on TV Channel Rossiya 1 first time in April 2017.  Photos of the other "experts" that are shown during the programme are taken from image stock websites. Further debunking by the Insider.
