Twitter account linked to Russia Today posing as Euromaidan PR

More

Since mid-March, Euromaidan Russian Propaganda  (Euromaidan RP) has been using the Euromaidan PR name to post separatist, anti-Kyiv, anti-Western propaganda and disinformation in an apparent effort to discredit Euromaidan PR. Because they use the Euromaidan PR hashtag, it is possible that people using that hashtag to search for us on Google or Twitter may find fake news.

As of May 4, Euromaidan RP has six followers. Several of their 240 tweets are retweets of material from RT, including articles and videos from RT’s YouTube channel. Euromaidan RP’s own material generally consists of anti-Kyiv and anti-Western propaganda.

All of Euromaidan RP’s tweets appear to bear the Euromaidan PR name, but it is easy to distinguish between a Euromaidan RP tweet and a Euromaidan PR tweet.

Here is a screenshot of Euromaidan PR’s Twitter page.

Please be aware of the differences. Euromaidan PR strives to provide accurate, verified information. Euromaidan RP strives to spread propaganda and discredit us by tweeting disingenuously under our name.
