Fake. Russian Channel 1 in a report about Slovyansk uses a two years old video form Kabardino-Balkaria


Russian Channel 1 in an evening news report on the 16th of May told about events in Slovyansk using two years old videos. 

In particular on minute 4:45 of the report they are telling about killed civilians. Here is a reference to the news report on the website vesti.ru.


In reality this video was made after an antiterrorist operation on the territory of the Baksan region of Kabardino-Balkaria.

Below is the news report of the Channel Vesti from 18.11.2012. Here is a reference to the report on website vesti.ru.

Here is the full video, which was published by the Russian National Anti-terrorist Committee.

Here is the official statement of the NAC of Russia, which was published on the website of the Committee:

Special operation in village Baksanyokon. Kabardino-Balkaria. 18th of November 2012.
