Russian fake shows CEC claiming Right Sector win

Ukraine’s presidential elections brought good news for the country, both in the outright win for one candidate and in the negligible support given to far-right candidates. Both were a blow to the Kremlin. So devastating that Russia’s First TV channel obligingly sought to soften it. Or just claim deceit.


During the “Sunday Time” news programme on First Channel, the presenter, Irada Zeinalova pointed to a screen showing what she calls “a strange picture”. She claims that this screen “appeared on the Central Election Commission central server several minutes ago”. According to this screen Dmytro Yarosh is clearly in the lead with 37.13% of the votes, with Poroshenko far behind, with 29.63%.


If this is not a clever fake to discredit a Kremlin-subservient TV channel (it does), its aim was, presumably, to suggest a discrepancy between the CEC records and the exit polls. The most likely explanation for this would be that the CEC was hoping to slip in a far right candidate regardless of who the voters chose. The story is unclear, however the viewer is undoubtedly left feeling that the authorities in Kyiv are not to be trusted, and their election results cannot be believed.

Ukrinform gives another suggestion, citing a source in the SBU [Security Service] who wants to remain anonymous. The claim is that the SBU had discovered a an illicit programme aimed at inserting a virus which would have produced the 37% win for Yarosh. The virus was supposedly neutralized 40 minutes before the First Channel news broadcast, but the channel had not yet learned of this.

So Putty Poot wants to setup a conspiracy theory that Yarosh actually won the elections, and that Poroshenko was put in instead? How interesting! Let’s see how far they run with this.

People in Russia and the ex-Soviet Union and China have never known freedom..

They are used to despots and demigogs ruling them..
Have known nothing else.. probably prefer it/them..

“Animal Farm” (the book) is not a fairy tale.. It’s TRUE.. it’s reality..

UKRAINE ELECTION: At the CEC planned to launch a virus that had winning show Jarosz- media
Espreso.TV ^ | May 26, 2014 1:56 Kyev

On the website of the CENTRAL ELECTION COMMISSION of the Russian Federation had planned to run a COMPUTER VIRUS to show an alleged victory of Dmitry Arosa.

This would not have been a result of mistakes or technical malfunction. But instead, this was a planned action by Russia against Ukraine.

According to espresso.TV:
“The SBU and the State with the Ukrainian IT specialists found localized viral software [a viral bookmark that was supposed to work in the post-election period. In particular, the winner of the election using a 37% vote indicator and/or the equivalent of 19 million voters for D. Jaros.”

According to his information, the virus was eradicated only 40 minutes before the ORT report aired. However, Moscow obviously had not yet known of the virus discovery. As a result, the Russian first channel showed the results of the elections in Ukraine, placing candidate Dmitry Yarosh in first-place with the result at 37,13%.

However, the final data of the Ukraine National exit poll showed Jaros did not enter even the top ten presidential candidates winning only 1% of votes.

BOTTOM LINE: Russia was not able to create havoc in the Ukraine election at least with a computer virus!

>> Ukraine’s presidential elections brought good news for the country, both in the outright win for one candidate <<

The Russian-friendly candidate beat former PM Yulia Tymoshenko and darling of the Maidan by a 4-1 ratio, and you crackpots are trying to spin that as a defeat.

Ukraine had “relative” freedom before 1653 when it joined Russia and it all went downhill

Actually NOWHERE had actual freedom in the 1600’s...
Freedom for the masses was a future invention/concept
ALL had forms of Kings (or democracy)... i.e Mob Rule..
The “King” was the MOB.. and had mobsters under him/her..
The UK still does today..

The founders of the free colony’s(America) invented it..
They invented FREEDOM.. for the masses.. NONE BEFORE..

King’s and Potentates always had a bit of freedom..
The masses were various form’s of SERF... cattle.. animals to be milked and farmed... even slaughtered thru “their” WARS..

It would be wise to heed the honesty of these guys:

Democracy is the road to socialism. -Karl Marx

Democracy is indispensable to socialism.
The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin

The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism .-Karl Marx

**passing comment: IF you can be TAXED on something you OWN..
THEN you’re paying RENT to the givernment that REALLY owns it..
You don’t own it at all..
WORSE: You’re delusional..
