Russia creating "information bubble" regarding Bucha war crimes - disinfo watchdog

Russia is setting up the so-called information bubble defying the fact of the genocide of Ukrainians in Bucha. If users search “Bucha” on Russia’s Yandex, the engine displays the town’s pre-war photos.

That’s according to the Center for Countering Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council, Ukrinform reports.

"One example is search results for ‘Bucha’ on Google and Yandex. Indeed, Google displays information about the destroyed town and people tortured to death, while Yandex shows only pre-war cityscapes. That's what Russian propaganda truth looks like," reads the report delivered via Telegram.
