A great example of how the media is not only a important and powerful tool of political warfare employed by governments, but also its antidote as used by thousands of self organized people who just aren’t buying it anymore.
Hilarity ensued once social media users jumped to comment on Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s presentation of Russian passports at the Munich Security Conference.
Social media users from Russia and elsewhere were quick to question and disparage Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s showing off of Russian passports, which he says are “the best evidence” of a Russian military presence in Ukraine.
Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, the Ukrainian President held up several passports which he said belonged to Russian military personnel serving in Ukraine. “I [have taken] with me the passports and military ID of Russian soldiers and officers,” Poroshenko told conference attendees. “This is the best evidence for the aggression and for the presence of Russian troops.”
And just like the mint passports found on 9/11 and the IDs left at the scene in Charlie Hebdo, among other irregularities, the culprits always seem to give themselves away!
