NYT Caught Creating Fake War Propaganda in Ukraine Just Like Iraq
Following two days of propaganda centered upon dubious photographs the junta in Kyiv and the war machine media in the United States insist proves the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine, The New York Times has issued a retraction. It is buried on page A9 of the newspaper.
The Times quotes Vyachislav Ponomaryov, the mayor of Slovyansk, who says the man shown in one of the photographs submitted to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe is a close friend. He declined to name the man. “He has a good background. He is one of my old friends. I have good friends in South Ossetia and in Grozny,” Ponomaryov said.
“We don’t have any direct contact with the special services of the Russian Federation,” he said. “Everyone you see here in the militia are my friends, my brothers, my allies in the battle with fascism. We have volunteers who came to us from Moldova, from Russia, from Belarus, from Kazakhstan, from the North Caucasus.”
