Russia's 'irrefutable evidence' of US help for Isis appears to be video game still


Russia said the Americans actively interfered with Russian airstrikes, to provide cover for the Isis fighters. Soon after people noted the dubious origin of the photographs, the defence ministry deleted its tweets, and removed the photographs from the corresponding Facebook posts. It is not the first time that the Russian defence ministry has tried to pass off footage of other events as its own. After internet users pointed out the discrepancy, Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the footage had been given to Putin by Sergei Shoigu, Russia’s minister of defence. The defence ministry told Russian news agencies on Tuesday evening it was “carrying out checks on a civilian employee who mistakenly added photographs to the ministry’s statement.”
