The “Chechen” Clone of Instagram: Not as Good – Part I

StopFake.org - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 01:01

Ramzan Kadyrov

Head of Chechnya

“There is a new social network being tested in Chechnya @ Mylistory, which is as good as the foreign ones”

Source: Telegram, January 3, 2018

FALSE

Mylistory is an underdeveloped clone of the “old” Instagram, with mysterious origins.

On December 23, 2017, the head of Chechen Republic, Ramzan Kadyrov announced via his Telegram channel that his Facebook and Instagram accounts had disappeared.

Telegram Channel, Ramzan Kadyrov: “My Instagram and Facebook accounts disappeared”

Kadyrov, regularly rated among Russia’s most popular bloggers, said that he had been thinking of deleting his accounts, but did not do so for the sake of his “more than four million followers,” although his Kadyrov_95 Instagram account actually had 3.2 million followers.

Responding to the decision of the Western social media platforms to close his accounts, Kadyrov said he was happy with the actions of “Instagram and their bosses in the White House.” He also announced that he is switching to the “Chechen” network called Mylistory, which is “as good as foreign ones,” and to which “State Department employees can access only with the permission of the Russian Foreign Ministry and the government of Chechen Republic.”

Telegram Channel, Ramzan Kadyrov: “State Department Employees allowed only with Russian Foreign Ministry permission

Facebook explained that Kadyrov’s accounts were deleted in accordance with the company’s legal obligations after the U.S. sanctioned him for human rights violations.

The Chechen government’s Grozny TV channel dedicated dozens of reports to Mylistory, praising the app as #18 in the App store top charts.

Russia’s Ministry of North Caucasus Affairs called on all federal agencies to create accounts with Mylistory, indicating that Russia might see the app as having a larger role than simply a Chechen social network and will seek to boost it to the same popularity as vKontakte – Russia’s Facebook analog.

“Russia might be testing social media strategy similar to China’s: Rather than dealing with Western platforms, they’ve simply created an alternate universe where there’s a Chinese clone for every platform,” a social media expert told Polygraph.info

Interestingly, President Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev created official accounts with Mylistory immediately after Kadyrov did.

Kadyrov’s own accounts – both in Russian and English – look less attractive in terms of content, and have far fewer followers than the Instagram account he lost. As of January 9, the Kadyrov_95 account on Mylistory had 48,000 followers, while the Kadyrov_95eng had 5,349 followers.

Several Russian and U.S. tech media specialist have tested Mylistory and given the app less-than-stellar ratings.

Russian T-Journal said the app is “a total copy of the old Instagram.”

The Russian newspaper Vzglyad wrote a flattering review for Mylistory, saying it is “booming in App store well ahead of Periscope, Tumbler and other popular applications. Its popularity is “not propaganda,” Vzglyad wrote, adding that many users have expressed gratitude to the app’s developers to Kadyrov for supporting it.

“It’s pretty much Instagram with fewer features, right down to a rip-off of Instagram’s old golden logo and font. It has basic functionality like the ability to post photos, comment and send direct messages, though there’s no way to share content on the site externally, and the app lacks features like ‘Stories,’” American Gizmodo.com wrote.

Polygraph.info tested the Mylistory application, from the process of downloading it from the App store to creating an account and digging into the developer’s IP address.

Mylistory is definitely not #18 in App store’s top charts of free social networking apps. It is not even close to being in the top 50.

The Web site mylistory.com listed in the apps’ page in App store as “App Support” opens only from unsecured connections and leads to the page, which states that it is “under development.” When attempting to open mylistory.com from secured connections, the page was blocked as a security risk.

Mylistory.com does not pass security filters

The developer of Mylistory, according to its page in App store, is a Chechen man named Magomed Eskhanov. In the Russia’s online database of registered businesses, he is listed asCEO of the Advertising firm “Myli,” at this address: 3/25 A. Kadyrov Ave, Grozny, Chechen Republic.

According to the database, Eskhanov’s agency is 100% funded by the LLC “Grozny-Citi” a company owned by one of Chechnya’s most notorious businessmen — Movsadi Alviev, a co-founder of the “Akhmad Kadyrov Foundation,” named after Ramzan’s late father (who was the republic’s ruler from October 2003 until his assassination in May 2004) and ranked as #5 on Transparency International’s list of “9 grand corruption cases.”

Reportedly, the “Akhmad Kadyrov Foundation” is Ramzan’s personal tool for appropriating and laundering of billions of rubles.

But the most interesting part of Mylistory’s “developer Magomed Eskhanov” story is the IP address of mylistory.com: a search of the database of RIPE, the Amsterdam-based Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Central Asia, leads not to Chechnya, but to a whole network of “dead ends” – hidden IPs “located” at different addresses in Moscow, including a 24-hour auto parts store and several P.O. Boxes.

Here are just a few examples.

Mylistory.com IP adress leads to whole network of “dead ends” located in different parts of Moscow, Russia

Polygraph.info traced the “under construction” website listed in App store for Mylistory to one Alexey Galaev, who might be a real person and a freelance developer.

Putin Invaded Ukraine to Prevent ‘Ukrainian’ Ideas from Spreading into Russia, Shmelyev Says

StopFake.org - Fri, 01/12/2018 - 00:49

news.pn

The main reason Vladimir Putin invaded Crimea and the Donbass, Aleksandr Shmelyev says, is that he feared that the ideas that had animated Ukrainians at the time of the Maidan would spread into Russia and become the basis of a similar challenge to himself. To prevent that, he acted as he did so as to alienate the two nations from each other.

As a result, the former Vzglyad editor and longtime Putin critic says, Russians and Ukrainians viewed each other as the enemy and any contacts between them that might have been the way “Ukrainian” ideas would spread into Russia were effectively blocked.

That rather than simply presenting himself as the latest “ingatherer of the Russian lands” or thumbing his nose at the West, Shmelyev continues, explains why Putin has done what he has done in the way that he has because his goal at all times is to defend his position lest being forced out of it he might be charged with an enormous number of crimes.

“Putin couldn’t allow” either the spread of ideas from Ukraine into Russia that might challenge him or the risk that he would be ousted from power and face justice, the commentator says.  “Therefore, he had to immediately break off ‘low-level’ contacts be tween the residents of our two countries.”

“I am certain,” he continues, “that this was the first and main motive behind everything that followed: The task was to get the two peoples into a fight with each other.” To that end, Putin was prepared to use all kinds of propaganda and to engage in massive acts of violence against Ukrainians.

And he did everything he could to ensure that “as a result of the war, Ukraine would not  be able to become an attractive example for Russians.”  Many seek to understand Putin as a geopolitician or as a national leader, but in fact, he is a criminal who is only seeking to ensure he and his group stay in power.

That should have been clear to everyone when he orchestrated the blowing up of apartment blocks in Moscow in 1999, Shmelyev says. And they should also have recognized that Putin doesn’t seem himself opposed to the West as he understands it. In his view, all democratic institutions in the West “are merely decorations as they are in Russia,” but “better hidden.”

Given this, the analyst continues, it is naïve to think the regime can be changed by a new round of sanctions or anything else. It can only be contained and then removed. The people do not really support it: they seek “escape” from politics and only want to survive. But those around Putin who have been infected by his values back him as a matter of survival.

They too can’t afford for him to leave because they know that once he goes so will they as Russian then will have to come up with a new system with new rules of the game.

“Rough…Brutal… Immoral… Interference” in Russia’s Internal Affairs

StopFake.org - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 07:58

Deputy chairman of the Russian State Duma’s foreign affairs committee

“The appearance of a Boris Nemtsov plaza in Washington is interference in Russia’s internal affairs.”

FALSE

The claim is baseless

On January 9, Russian opposition activist Vladimir Kara-Murza announced on his Facebook page: “At its first meeting of 2018, the Council of the District of Columbia unanimously passed the first reading of Bill 22-539 to designate the block in front of the Russian Embassy as Boris Nemtsov Plaza.”

According to Kara-Murza, the Council, in addition to passing the bill, also “unanimously passed an emergency declaration to enact the designation by February 27” – the third anniversary of Boris Nemtsov’s assassination, on a bridge within sight of the Kremlin.

Bill 22-539, the “Boris Nemtsov Plaza Designation Act of 2017,” is described on the Council of the District of Columbia’s website as being “under council review.”

After the review is completed, the bill will be send to the mayor of Washington, DC for approval or veto. If Mayor Muriel Bowser approves the bill, it will go into effect.

This means that there are still several legal procedural steps before/if the street signs near Russian embassy will change from Wisconsin Ave to Boris Nemtsov Plaza.

Embassy of Russian Federation, 2650 Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest, Washington DC

However, leading Russian politicians are already responding to the news from Washington, DC with a flow of accusatory comments.

Nemtsov’s former colleagues in the State Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament, have proposed renaming the street on which the U.S. embassy is located in Moscow. They are calling for changing the current address, “8 Bolshoi Devyatinskiy Pereulok,” to “1 Severoamericansky Tupik,” which translates to 1 North American Blind Alley.

One top lawmaker said it was “immoral” for the Americans to attempt “pit the current Russian authorities against Boris Nemtsov.”

And Dmitry Novikov, deputy chairman of the Russian State Duma’s foreign affairs committee, called the DC city council’s move “interference in Russia’s internal affairs.”

Появление площади имени Бориса Немцова в Вашингтоне – это вмешательство во внутренние дела России- первый зампред комитета Госдумы по международным делам Дмитрий Новиков.

— Коммерсантъ FM 93,6 (@KFM936) 10 января 2018 г.

That Novikov’s claim is false was proven by his own boss, Duma foreign affairs committee chairman Leonid Slutsky, who called the DC city council’s decision“rough” and “brutal,” but added that “it is the American government’s business.”

Likewise, Russia’s Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said late last month concerning the Council of the District of Colombia’s plans to rename the street in front of the Russian embassy in the U.S. capital: “The American authorities decide where, when and in whose honor they name a particular plaza, a particular street.”

Riot police encircle Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, Moscow, February 2014

Explaining why she co-sponsored renaming on Russian Embassy’s doorstep, DC city council member Mary Cheh, said, “there is little doubt that his (Nemtsov’s) murder was motivated by his political beliefs, his popularity, and his frequent and open criticism of the Russian government.”

Edward Lucas: The repressive state

StopFake.org - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 02:56

By Edward Lucas, for CEPA

How many political prisoners languish in Russia’s jails and penal colonies? The short answer is that nobody knows. Harassment makes it hard for human rights organizations to track these cases. Many of those convicted are jailed for “non-political” crimes. Estimates range from dozens to hundreds.

But the cases we do know about are bad enough. Take, for example, Yuri Dmitriev—one of the country’s greatest historians of Stalinism. He was arrested more than a year ago on charges of making child-abuse images. A group of independent legal experts said unanimously last month that the photographs were not pornographic; they simply documented the health of his adopted daughter, who was malnourished when she arrived in the family from her children’s home.

Now the authorities are sending Dmitriev for examination at the notorious Serbski Institute in Moscow. That place has a dreadful reputation from the Soviet era, when it spearheaded the use of coercive psychiatry against dissidents. These brave and brilliant people were not mad. But after being given powerful drugs at the Serbski Institute for made-up diseases such as “sluggish schizophrenia,” they did indeed become mentally ill, in some cases suffering permanent psychological damage.

Punitive psychiatry epitomized the persecution of the Brezhnev era, just as the Gulag exemplified Stalin’s terror. Its abolition was one of the first signs that Mikhail Gorbachev’s Kremlin was serious about human rights. Its return now is one of the most sinister indicators about where Russia is heading.

It should not be a surprise. Russian authorities habitually use legal tools, at home and abroad, to crush resistance. At least 60 Ukrainians have been locked up on bogus charges—further casualties of Russia’s war against its biggest European neighbor, and greatest potential friend.

The country’s longest serving political prisoner is Alexei Pichugin, a mid-ranking official in the former Yukos oil empire. Arrested in 2003, he has been jailed, on flimsy evidence, for multiple murders. His real crime is that he has steadfastly refused to give false evidence against his boss, former oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky.

The Russian authorities also wanted Sergei Magnitsky, an auditor at a Moscow law firm, to give evidence against his boss, Bill Browder, a London-based financier. He refused, and was beaten to death in jail. Undeterred, the authorities put the dead man on trial, and issued an arrest warrant for Browder, whom Russian President Vladimir Putin recently called a “serial killer.” Browder’s real crime has been his stunningly successful campaign for sanctions against the murderous crooks who run Russia.

The question for the authorities is whether this works. Persecution creates martyrs. Khodorkovsky’s decade in prison helped him shed the taint of his questionable business career in the 1990s. Had he simply been deported, he would be long forgotten. Browder’s reincarnation as a human rights campaigner trumps his earlier support for the Putin regime. Dimitriev’s treatment makes his fate an international cause celebre. Pussy Riot would still be languishing in the cultural undergrowth if the regime had not treated them so harshly. Now the punk performance band’s members are international celebrities.

Putin last year unveiled a memorial to “victims of state repression.” But the truth is, he would prefer to distance himself from the past. Russia’s state historiography is a painfully abstract affair. The victims and perpetrators are faceless. Nobody is to blame. Nobody deserves compensation. Although some Russians applaud the idea of the authorities wielding power with a firm hand, modern repression also highlights the similarities between the Putin regime and the Soviet one. The stagnant and brutal Soviet regime ended in collapse. So may its successor.

Moldovan Parliament Speaker Passes Law Against Russian Propaganda

StopFake.org - Thu, 01/11/2018 - 02:45

Moldovan parliament speaker Andrian Candu (file photo)

By RFE/RL

The speaker of Moldova’s parliament, Andrian Candu, has signed legislation appointing seven new government ministers along with a law that bans Russian “media propaganda.”

The signings on January 10 took place after Moldova’s Constitutional Court suspended pro-Russia President Igor Dodon’s powers on the issues and ruled that Candu could ratify the legislation, which was proposed by Moldova’s pro-Western government and passed by pro-Western lawmakers in the parliament.

The so-called “media propaganda” law effectively bans the rebroadcasting in Moldova of Russian television programs on news, analysis, politics, and military issues.

The Constitutional Court ruled on January 5 that either Candu or Prime Minister Pavel Filip could sign the bill into law because Dodon had “refused twice to fulfill his constitutional duty to sign the bill into law.”

Both Candu and Filip are members of the pro-Western Democratic Party of Moldova (PDM).

On January 2, the court ruled that the same procedure could be used to confirm Filip’s nominees in a cabinet reshuffle that Dodon refused to ratify.

Dodon said Filip’s nominees were incompetent and that some were corrupt.

Dodon is frequently at odds with Filip and his government, which favors closer ties with the EU and the United States.

Dodon on January 10 said Moldova’s seven newly appointed ministers “lack legitimacy.” He also said the Constitutional Court helped Filip’s government to violate “the principles of democracy and a rule-of-law state.”

Pro-Russia political parties in Moldova on January 10 called for street protests.

Russian authorities also have been at odds with the PDM over its attempts to bolster Chisinau’s ties with the EU and the United States.

The Moscow city court on January 10 upheld the legality of charges filed in absentia against the president of the PDM, Vlad Plahotniuc.

Plahotniuc, one of Moldova’s most influential pro-Western politicians, was charged in absentia in November 2017 in Moscow’s Basmanny district court of attempted murder in Russia.

Russian authorities allege that Plahotniuc was behind a March 2012 assassination attempt against German Gorbuntsov, the former owner of banks in Russia and Moldova.

Gorbuntsov was shot several times in east London by a man armed with a submachine gun, but survived the attack.

Aleksandr Nekrassov, a former Kremlin adviser, told the BBC in 2012 that the attack appeared to be linked to information Gorbuntsov claimed to have about the attempted assassination of another Russian banker, Aleksandr Antonov.
