A Ukrainian friend of my housemate sent her an email about Russian press manipulation...pretty interesting.
I'll try and copy/paste it here-Love to all:
Hope you're doing well )))
Let me show something interesting to you. Please, have a look at two pictures I attached.
The first photo is the original one, taken in Hamburg, G20. Another pic is an example "fake news, Russian style".
Please, see that:
- instead of the empty chair in the middle Putin appeared,
- instead of the "United Kingdom" sign there is a "Russian Federation",
- have look at the red Merkel's jacket and pay attention to the orange-black band. It's a sign of anti-fascist movement, widely used by pro-Russian forces.
The second (photo-shopped) picture is now broadcasted in all Russian media.
Imagine what "picture of life" do people who live in Russia have...
Wishing you a great day,
