Voice of America Publishes Fake Interview with Navalny

Whistleblower lawyer, blogger and opposition leader Alexei Navalny has dismissed an interview with him posted on the Voice of America web site as a fake. “Voice of America has gone completely nuts. [They] have published a huge fake 'Interview with Navalny',” the blogger said on his Twitter account. The interview, entitled “If you want to do something well, do it yourself,” features details from Navalny’s childhood, his participation in a nationalist march and his opinion of opposition activists. In response, VOA apologized. “To obtain that material we used the channels that we, at that moment, believed to be reliable,” explained the VOA Russian service editorial board in a statement. Voice of America is the official external broadcast institution of the United States federal government.
