A brief excursion into how the “opposition” in Russia makes fake “news,”  and political statements based on fake “news.”

Alexey Navalny is a leader of so called “Anti-Corruption Foundation,” allegedly, the Western governments funded neo-liberal NGO organization.

Recently, a documentary was released alleging that A. Navalny has been an MI-6 agent for over  a decade.

“Anapa district Cossack society representative has stated that “people who attacked the staff of FBK at the airport are not the Cossacks. Cossacks were just trying to separate the attackers.”

People who attacked the team of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) by Alexei Navalny near the Anapa airport are not the Cossacks, said to RBC the officer on duty for the Anapa district Cossack society Ivan Petrov. According to him, when “mister Nvalny with his companions came to the airport, he was greeted by men dressed up in camouflage uniforms”. At first, they applauded him, and shortly after a brawl erupted.

“Those who attacked Navalny and his associates, are not the Cossacks. Police are now looking for them”, — said Petrov. He said that he does not know who exactly those attacks were.

“The Cossacks — those who stood on video in black uniforms, they are guards who serve at the airport. They tried to separate a fight,” — said Petrov. According to him, after they got a report that some people in camouflage were gathering in the small park near the airport, the commander of the local Cossack militia called the chieftain, and the chieftain gave the command to strengthen the vigilantes.

  1. Anna Velikok’s tweet: “Civil reporters” lifenews live in a free country and you’re not.”

She attached an image of someone’s post quoting: “RBC newspaper reported Kira Yarmysh, Navalny’s press-secretary, “first the attackers poured milk on the members of opposition. After that they started shouting “You hit me” and “get off our Kuban land,”  they started beating everyone including women. Yarmysh stressed that they had children with them, but they managed to shield children from attackers. “They shouted a little, but they beat us up a lot.”

The entire process was filmed by several people with cameras. “The Police were present. They saw everything, but they didn’t interfere,” press-secretary Yarmysh reported.

Later, the “operators” were asked to show their press credentials, but they refused, stating that they live in a free country.”

What had actually took place in Anapa airport on May 17th, 2016




The following day, after the massive outcry by the Western media about “regime attacking opposition,” the whole incident was forgotten like it never took place.  Compare this “fake” news and false flag attacks on the “opposition” in Russia with the reaction to real attacks and death of independent journalists.
