Ukraine – Dissecting Some War Propaganda News Items – Addendum

Moon of Alabama – Sept 17, 2022

This is a follow-up to yesterday’s piece about Reuters unfounded propaganda claims and distribution:

Ukraine – Dissecting Some War Propaganda News Items

Reuters via Yahoo:

Multiple bodies found at mass burial site in Ukraine’s Izium with rope around necks

Hours later:

Advisory – Story has been withdrawn – Multiple bodies found at mass burial site in Ukraine’s Izium with rope around necks

While Yahoo and others have deleted the body of the story, its false headline is still up.

Repeating the closing sentences of yesterday’s pamphlet:

It is not the ‘fog of war’ that clouds such new reporting. It is the propaganda that was ordered up to incite the ‘western’ population against Russia and its citizens and soldiers.

Without further backup and proof one can not, and should not, believe any news item coming from the Ukrainian and other wars.

Added (6:10 UTC):

Interestingly the British Telegraph is more skeptical than the ‘British’ news agency Reuters:

Inside Izyum – and the Russian command centre destroyed by Himars missiles

Anton Herashenko, an advisor to the Ukrainian interior ministry, told the BBC on Thursday that about 1,000 bodies had been found in Izyum and that more civilians had died there than in Bucha.

The Telegraph did not see any evidence of that scale of death during a visit on Thursday.Hrigory[, a 63-year-old civil engineer ,] denied knowledge of any war crimes.

“We didn’t interact with them, and they didn’t interact with us,” he said of the Russians. “From what I know, there wasn’t detentions, executions, torture.”

“There were a lot of young men who would say ‘we won’t shoot any bullets,’” he added.

And another one from the Telegraph:

‘Tortured’ bodies unearthed in mass graves of liberated town Izyum

Oleksandr Filchakov, the head of the Kharkiv prosecutor’s office, said some showed signs of torture. Reporters at the scene did not see proof of that.
