Busted: Kiev MPs try to fool US senator with ‘proof’ of Russian tanks in Ukraine (PHOTOS)

Russian tanks, soldiers / Photo provided by Sen. Inhofe

MPs in Kiev hoodwinked a US senator, presenting his office with photos of columns of Russian military hardware allegedly roaming Ukrainian territory. The photos turned out to have been taken during the conflict in South Ossetia back in 2008.

The photos were “presented to the Armed Services Committee from a delegation from Ukraine in December,” told The Washington Free BeaconSenator Jim Inhofe’s communications director Donelle Harder.

The Americans planned to publish the photos with credits to the Ukrainian MPs, and “they were fine with that,” the spokesperson said.

Yet, after thorough checking, images of the Russian convoys turned to be taken years ago, in 2008 during Georgia – South Ossetia war.

  1. I just heard about this! With the availability of internet and ways to check out all facts (well, pretty much anyway) how could they think they could get away with it? DOH…. 🙂

  2. As usual, another half baked article. This “reporter” conveniently forgot to mention that Sen Inhofe-R presented these photos as recent and authentic during his testimony before the Senate Armed Services Committee. It was only after his remarks were made public that they were proven to be false.
    Maybe Inhofe and Brian Williams have been hanging out together? Williams get suspended, Inhofe gets defended.
    Both lied.
    I smell hypocrisy
