You're reading: Ukrainska Pravda demands investigation of clone site, paper
Popular
on social media

Both
the fake site and the newspaper have designs very similar to that of
the original site, which was founded in 2000 by Georgiy Gongadze, who
was brutally murdered months later.

“We
consider these actions, both the production of the false printed
version of Ukrainska Prada, and the online “twin” as aimed at
discrediting our publication,” the editors said in their statement.
“The calculation is that an inattentive or poorly informed reader
will take at face value any nonsense that come out on these
resources, under our brand, or in our design.”

The
false newspaper claims to have a circulation of 1 million, which
Ukrainska Pravda also challenges. The masthead of the newspaper lists
Prytula O.E. as chief editor of the publication, and Leshchenko S.T. as production editor. The surnames used are the same as Pravda’s
chief editor Olena Prytula and its deputy chief editor Serhiy
Leshchenko, but their patronymic initials are different.
