Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry Slams DW for Ignoring Russian Propaganda

The Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned German broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW) against alleged Russian manipulation. 

“At the moment, it is unclear to us why the Russian office of the German broadcaster backs Russian propaganda up, manipulates quotes, and substitutes concepts regarding the causes and consequences of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine,” said spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oleg Nikolenko. 

The ministry accused DW’s Russian office of publishing purported Russian propaganda such as calling Ukraine a terrorist state and that they may be responsible for a disaster at the Zaporizhzhia NPP.

“Due to the threats caused by Russian disinformation, the German government has already blocked the Russian propaganda channel RT in Germany. And we call on our German partners to respond to the narratives of Russian propaganda spread by DW’s,” added Nikolenko.
