0544GMT: Weve all grown accustomed to the lurid claims of the Kremlins many state media properties, which we cover frequently and which were most notably rounded up in an Examiner article about 60 Lies, some of which weve debunked.
But last week, Channel 1 reached new lows with a claim that the Ukrainian army committed atrocities when liberating Slavyansk. How could this happen in the center of Europe? intones the narrator. In the processing of debunking the claim, we can trace the close connection among ultranationalist ideologues in Russia, the pro-Russian separatists in Donetsk, and Russian state TV programs.
One week after pro-Russian separatists retreated from Slavyansk, on 12 July Channel 1 interviewed a woman refugee in a camp in Rostov Region, giving her name as Galina Pyshnyak. She said she was originally from TransCarpathia, and her relatives in Western Ukraine were unhappy that her husband had gone to fight with the separatists.
Galina then describes how in the center of town, allegedly at Lenin Square where the executive committee building is located the only square where a large number of people could be gathered women had been brought together because the men had all gone off to fight, to witness a scene right out of Game of Thrones (translation by The Interpreter)
It was called a show execution. They took a child, a 3-year-old boy, a little one, in shorts and a t-shirt. And like Jesus, they nailed him, one nailed him, two held him down. All of this in front of the mother. The mother was held, and watched. Blood flowed from the child, there were cries and screams, they took him like this, and cut him. The shock of the child was impossible. People fainted. Then after they tortured the child for an hour and a half and he died, where this was all happening, and then they took the mother, tied her to a tank, unconscious, and dragged her around the square. They made three circles. A circle around the square is a kilometer.
Another blogger, Evgeny Feldman went to the main square in Slavyansk and interviewed people there, mainly elderly women, none of who could confirm the story. They didnt believe it, although all but one said they had not been on the square that day. The one woman who was there to greet the Ukrainian army said nothing of the sort had occurred. Feldman also panned around the square, and we dont see anything that matches the description of a bulletin board.
Russian lies are primarily for domestic use, people there are faithful consumers of any manure they got fed through media. Sane humans won’t touch these informational feces.
