mo4ch:>BBC seeks to ‘prove’ Moscow link to Yellow Vest protests – leaked messages suggest | Mo4ch News

The BBC is desperate in its quest to ‘find’ the dreaded Kremlin hand behind the French protests, messages obtained by Russian media indicate. They reveal attempts by one of its journalists to find any trace of Russian involvement.

A series of screenshots, purporting to show a conversation between BBC Russia journalist Olga Ivshina and a stringer working in France, was published by RIA Novosti on Sunday.

The journalist first asked about Moscow’s involvement in the protests in general, but the stringer replied that no Russians were actually seen during the demonstrations. Ivshina, however, did not give up, since uncovering any slightest Russian involvement would apparently do the trick. The journalist was bursting with ideas, one of the screenshots suggests.

“And maybe some Russian business is making big bucks on it?”

“Maybe they are eating cutlets out there en masse, for example?”

“Or maybe the far-right are the main troublemakers?”

The reluctance of the stringer to embark on the Russians-finding quest made Ivshina reveal that such an obsession was not her own, but rather a part of the editorial policy.

“Yes, I’m searching for the angles))) The editorial board wants blood, yo)))” – another screengrab reads.

The report on the questionable practices of the BBC has caught the eye of Russia’s Foreign Ministry, which vowed to raise the issue with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). Apart from that, the ministry’s spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called upon the British public to go and judge the actions of the broadcaster.

"It’s Britain in particular, where Russian media, broadcasters are repeatedly accused of producing propaganda,” Zakharova said, adding that no real facts to back up the claims are produced, the accusers routinely appeal to the “voice of the society.”

“The British society is allegedly writing complaints to Ofcom – the media watchdog – and it has to react, blaming our media, our journalists for some sort of unprofessional behavior,” she added.

I have a question for those British media regulators and the society, how can they evaluate such facts compilation, conducted by employees of their broadcasters?
