Pyatt and his Fakes

Geoffrey Pyatt — US ambassador to Kiev – continues to post fakes on his Twitter as “proof” and “evidence” of Russia’s military involvement in Donbass, this time claiming that Moscow is now expanding its (hitherto invisible) presence in eastern Ukraine.

His proof, as RT wryly reports, is

a two-year-old picture of an air defense system from an air show near Moscow.

“This is the highest concentration of Russia air defense systems in eastern Ukraine since August,” the ambassador tweeted, attaching a picture of BUK-M2 missile defense system apparently taken at the International Aviation and Space Show MAKS-2013, which actually took place just outside Moscow.

Twitter users lashed out at Pyatt’s post – which he wrote in Ukrainian – implying that the diplomat deliberately used a fake image.

For Pyatt’s previous use of Twitter to deceive the public and post anti-Russian propaganda (“evidence” that invariably proved false), see here.

This type of ambassador that the us sends around the world needs to be outlawed.
They involve themselves in the internal govt of countries and instigate tegime change.
The way this man pyatt operates in ukraine is deceitful and underhand.
