Fake An Egyptian investigative journalist was allegedly killed in Ukraine because of his criticism of Zelenskyi

Russian propagandists are spreading information in the media that Egyptian investigative journalist Mohammed Al-Alawi, who published material about “Zelenskyi’s mother-in-law’s villa”, was allegedly killed. They say that the relatives of the “deceased” are sure that he was killed because of his professional activities. However, this is fake.

This was found out by specialists from the Center for Countering Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council. In fact, the information about the “murder” is as fictional as the very existence of the so-called Egyptian “investigative journalist”, since there is no information on the Internet regarding such a person, except for the above-mentioned fake article about the “villa of the mother-in-law of the President of Ukraine”.

By disseminating such fakes, according to the Center, Russian propaganda is trying to discredit Ukraine and, in particular, President Zelenskyi personally, and is also spreading the myth about the “absence” of freedom of speech in Ukraine and large-scale censorship.
