"Ukrainian Pravda" publicly asks the SBU to address the fakes posted under the UP's name

10.04.2023, 20:33

"Ukrainian Pravda" publicly appeals to the Security Service of Ukraine with a request to address the spread of a fake column by the journalist, military officer Pavlo Kazarin, done by unknown persons through a fake website.

This was announced by the UP editor-in-chief Sevgil Musaieva.

"We believe that the purpose of this Russian psyop is to discredit the army and undermine the trust in Ukraine's leadership, both military and political," Musaieva said in her statement.

As the IMI reported, a fake website imitating the online publication "Ukrainian Pravda" has appeared on the Internet. According to the domain verification service whois, the fake website with the domain was created as recently as February 12, 2023, through an American company. The website contains several pages and simulates the interface and the logo of the UP. Journalist Pavlo Kazarin stressed that that he reporsts all his writings on social media.

In March, 2023, the editors of RBC Ukraine filed a statement with the cyberpolice over website forgery and a fake article criticizing the UAF Commander-in-Chief, Valery Zaluzhny.

In September 2022, unknown persons created a copy of the Ternopil online resource "Poglyad" and of its Facebook page. And in Snigurivka town (Mykolaiv oblast), which had been under Russian occupation since March to November, the invaders were distributing a clone of the locally known newspaper "Ridne Prybuzhzhia". The Russians used the layout, typeface, and name of the regional newspaper, having translated it into Russian – "Rodnoe Pribuzhye".

In June 2022, the RBC-Ukraine reported that some criminals were posing as their editorial office to advertise a survey with which RBC-Ukraine had nothing to do on social media. Back then, the RBC-Ukraine contacted the National Police, the Security Service of Ukraine, and the Ministry of Digital Transformation regarding this issue.
