Have you seen “I am a Ukrainian”? Some say this is the Strategic Communication video of the year.
Yulia Marushevska was the young woman speaking in the video. She is a PhD candidate at Taras Shevchenko University in Kyiv/Kiev and is speaking in Washington DC this next Monday. http://www.gwu.edu/~ieresgwu/assets/docs/03.31.14_Marushevska.pdf After reading about her, seeing her videos and researching this, I have real problems believing anything Putin says to disparage the new government. Sure, not all governments are 100% pure, but it certainly sounds like her new government is a heck of a lot better than under Viktor Yushchenko.
Amazingly, Russian propagandists has spread disinformation about this video. “I am a Ukrainian’ Video Exposed As Kony-Style Scam” is one of the more egregious examples of a simple smear campaign. With no proof, claiming her video is a scam is about as effective as stating a sidewalk is not made out of concrete.
If you have any doubts, please view this video about the making of the video. She made it herself with only a little editing.
