Vladimir Putin exposed over fake photo to discredit Aleksey Navalny
PUBLISHERS loyal to Vladmir Putin’s All-Russia People’s Front have produced a photo of Russian anti-corruption blogger Aleksey Navalny stood by a smiling Boris Berezovsky. Vladimir Putin hates the exiled Berezovsky. He is also no fan of Mr Navalny. The picture in the newspaper created in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg carries the caption “never hidden”. The claim is that Berezovsky is behind Navalny’s fight against Putin’s re-election as Russian President in March.
Only, the photo is a fake. The Kremlin has been exposed. The original photograph was of Navalny with metals billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, who is also running for president against Mr Putin. The photographer posted it on the web to prove the lie.
In other news, Putin is only 3ft tall and has feet made of clay.
