Fake images in Ukraine

7 February 2014 — Voltaire Network

The images of a naked Ukrainian prisoner in the snow, surrounded by police forces taunting him, have been spread around the world. They show the brutality of the regime that the glorious activists of Maidan Square are trying to overthrow.

There is only one problem: at the end of the footage, Andrei Dubrovik can be spotted wearing a uniform. Yet, Mr. Dubrovik had left the Ministry of the Interior some time back to step in as security chief of the All-Ukrainian Union “Fatherland” (Batkivshchyna) led by oligarch Yulia Tymoshenko.

According to Vremia, this propaganda film was created by television producer Andriy Kozhemyakin, who is also on Mrs. Tymochenko’s payroll [1].
