VoxCheck of Andriy Parubiy: Truth and Manipulations by the Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament

VoxCheck and the CHESNO initiative have made a joint analysis of the press conference of Andriy Parubiy, one of the most influential politicians in Ukraine.

For the most part, he spoke honestly; however, he did embellish the truth significantly when it came to “knopkodavstvo”
