The TV channel France 2 has illustrated the "progress of French aviation" in Syria using footage of air strikes inflicted by the aircraft of the Russian air force. The recording of a program was replicated on social networks.
The presentation of France 2, which blogger Timofey Vasiliev published on his Facebook, spoke about the large number of dead Syrian civilians because of the actions of the Russian airforce. No evidence for this was given, but the journalist said that the French aviation works more precisely.
Vasiliev wrote that in the news story, Russia was accused of using "unguided" bombs that lead to large civilian casualties, but France, working in a coalition, "successfully" destroyed terrorists of "Islamic State".
The story of French high-precision air strikes was illustrated with footage from the Russian Defense Ministry. The blogger stressed that it cannot be called an ordinary mistake during production — the Russian-language (Cyrillic) annotations on the video were removed.
