A 1995 photo of Russia’s notorious atrocities in Chechnya made media rounds as an alleged photo of the victims of the Ukrainian military.
Numerous Russian mainstream media outlets have falsely claimed that a General of the Ukrainian military got on his knees in front of a former Ambassador from the U.S. in May of 2014. Russian media claimed that such an action demonstrated the subservience of the Ukrainian military to the United States of America.
Russia’s Channel 24 invented an entire statement, allegedly made by the Ukrainian government. In this statement, journalists were allegedly threatened with imprisonment for unfavorable reporting about the situation in Ukraine.
Ukrainian government officials confirmed that no such announcement was ever made.
