The team of Zelensky gave examples of fake news which they associate with Poroshenko’s inner circle.
The team of Volodymyr Zelensky is suspecting people from Poroshenko’s inner circle in collaboration with Russian media in order to discredit the winner of the presidential election.
This was stated by the “Ze! Team” on Facebook.
“Over the past few days, people from Petro Poroshenko’s inner circle have been fabricated several frankly false news at once, which, however, have spread in the media. Including Russian media. This suggests a conclusion about close cooperation between Poroshenko’s inner circle and Russian media in order to discredit the newly elected President of Ukraine,” the statement said.
Among these fakes is the false report of the People’s Deputy from Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) Volodymyr Aryev that German politician Gregor Gisi, who is lobbying Russian interests in PACE in matters of sanctions against the Russian Federation, was noticed on a holiday in Turkey next to Zelensky during the barbecue. It is noted that Aryev apologized for this post, but the message was already circulating in the media.
Another fake distributed the Russian Telegram channel “Nezigar” concerned allegedly Zelensky’s holiday on the yacht of the oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi and his meetings and talks with representatives of Vladislav Surkov and Viktor Medvedchuk.
The team of Zelensky stated that “this lie has been publicized among loyal fans of the current guarantor of the Constitution, as well as in the media.”
It is also reported that during the Zelensky’s holiday in Turkey, the journalists of the Russia channel made their way to the closed territory of the hotel. They introduced themselves as guests of the hotel and even took pictures with Zelensky and then tried to organize a provocation.
“The question is – who benefits from it? The answer is obvious,” stated Zelensky’s team.
“Some people are not ready to accept their defeat with dignity, his entourage is muddying clear water, trying to hide his own dishonest actions, including using media representatives in his manipulative informative attacks,” the statement said.
The team of Zelensky added that “responsibility is inevitable, and it will soon come.”
“After all, Zelensky’s short-term and rather a restless vacation has already ended. He returns to business [ed. – cases]. For some, these cases may become criminal,” the text says.
