FACT CHECK: China Trumpets Sham Russian Claims About War Coverage.

On May 17, Global Information, a media account managed by China’s state-run China National Radio, posted a video on the Twitter-like social media platform Weibo.

“Independent Journalists from Many Countries Fired for Truthfully Covering the Conflict Between Russia and Ukraine,” the post proclaimed. As of this writing, Weibo posts circulating the video have accumulated more than 110 million views.

The video purportedly features independent journalists who claim they were unable to “speak the truth” about Russia’s war against Ukraine. But the so-called truths are actually debunked Kremlin falsehoods that attempt to blame Ukraine for carnage caused by Russian forces.

The post follows a pattern. Chinese state media reliably spread Russian war propaganda.

The Weibo post says:

“In a recent United Nations meeting, independent journalists from France, Italy, the Netherlands and other countries criticized Western media for false propaganda in their coverage of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

“However, they were fired from their jobs and even banned from entering their own countries for insisting on telling the truth they had observed about the Ukraine issue.”

That is misleading.
