A Russian state-run news agency prematurely published an article that said Russia has taken back Ukraine.

Quote:
"Ukraine has returned to Russia," said the article, which ran on RIA Novosti and has since been taken down. "The West sees the return of Russia to its historical borders in Europe."

Embarrassing and revealing: Russia's state media prematurely published an article announcing the Kremlin's victory over Ukraine and prematurely celebrating "the return of Russia to its historical borders in Europe."

Thomas de Waal link twitter 2. RIA Novosti news agency accidentally published an article, tagged with a publication date of 8AM on February 26, already celebrating a Russian victory and collapse of the Ukrainian state within an anticipated two days. It's still on their site.
The article praised the "return" of Ukraine to it's "natural state" as part of Russia.

"The period of the split of the Russian people is coming to an end," the article reads. "Did someone in the old European capitals, in Paris and Berlin, seriously believe that Moscow would give up Kiev? That the Russians will forever be a divided people?"

Last week, during a speech where he announced Russia would recognize two eastern provinces of Ukraine as independent states, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Ukraine has been a part of Russia since "time immemorial." But Ukraine and Russia have long been in what Poynter called "an extended tug-of-war over religion, language and political control."

Ukraine is still in conflict with Russia. The US State Department on Monday accused Russia of "widespread" human rights abuses in Ukraine as its troops reportedly fired missiles at civilian areas.

The RIA Novosti article a copy of which can be seen on the WayBack Machine, a tool that documents changes across websites over time also praised the "new era" of the "Russian World" with Russia, Belarus and Ukraine united a whole.

"The West as a whole, and even more so Europe in particular, did not have the strength to keep Ukraine in its sphere of influence," the article reads. "In order not to understand this, one had to be just geopolitical fools."

The article had an 8 a.m. timestamp and was scheduled to run on February 26, according to the archive.
didn't happen yet and ukraine just applied to EU.

What I want to see as verified news is that the terrorist Putin has been annihilated. Taking out the trash fits better than assassination.
