Lithuania Sees Fake News Attempt To Discredit Nato Exercises


KULAUTUVA, Lithuania – Lithuania’s defense minister said on Wednesday a report about a U.S. armored vehicle supposedly killing a boy there was fake news and an attempt to discredit NATO exercises in the Baltics.

Posted to an obscure website but made to look like a story from Lithuania’s top news website Delfi, the June 7 blog saying a U.S. Army vehicle hit a boy on a bicycle bore the hallmarks of a fake rape claim published last year, Raimondas Karoblis told Reuters.

The story included a picture purporting to show a broken bicycle lying in front of the vehicle.
