You're reading: Fake diaspora reporter trolls unsuspecting parliament members

on social media

Dressed casually in an embroidered
Ukrainian shirt, denim jeans and an unassuming blazer, Vintoniv trolled for
interviews with parliamentary candidates while posing as a Canadian-Ukrainian
journalist for the non-existent UT-Toronto channel. His work ends up only on
YouTube, where he received a fair share of hits.

Coupled with a well-disguised “diaspora”
Ukrainian accent, and the use of a walking cane, Vintoniv got away with asking
some outrageous questions and made some reluctant victims speak Ukrainian, even
the representative of the pro-Russian, Russian Bloc Party.
