russians in Volnovakha issue propaganda "newspaper" under a Ukrainian brand

28.07.2022, 20:40

Two issues of the propaganda "newspaper" "Nashe Slovo" were printed in Volnovakha (Donetsk region), which is temporarily occupied by the russian invaders. This was stated by the media outlet's editor-in-chief Lidia Tarash, Chytomo reports.

"Nashe Slovo" has been in print since 1932, but after the occupation, the russians stole the newspaper's brand and use it to spread propaganda.

"In this publication, the occupation authorities appropriated not only the name 'Nashe Slovo,' but also the font of the name, the layout style of the first page, and even the color blue that we used for the name on the newspaper's website and Facebook page. We note that not a single member of our enterprise's team has anything to do with the prinitng of this newspaper," Lidia Tarash emphasized.

According to the editor, the real "Nashe Slovo" stopped printing with the beginning of full-scale russian aggression against Ukraine. As of now, all editorial staff have left the occupied territory, except for one colleague who was killed.

Lidia Tarash reported that the representatives of the so-called "DPR" occupation administration have been trying to "resume" the printing of the newspaper for a long time. Namely, they offered her to cooperate.

The occupiers gave the premises of the editorial office to the so-called "Volnovakha District Pension Fund." The printing of the fake "Nashe Slovo" is being done by the so-called State Unitary Enterprise of the Donetsk People's Republic "Republican Media Holding" headed by Roman Karpenko. In addition to "Our Word," the "Holding" is printing two more local "newspapers" in the occupied territory of Donetsk region – "Selskaya Nov" (Mangush District) and "Zarya Pryazovya" (Nikolske District).

We remind you that earlier, the russians have stolen brands of Mariupol, Melitopol, and Kherson newspapers  to spread propaganda.
