How did Putin end up showing Oliver Stone a fake war video? The Kremlin is blaming Russia's defense minister
Dmitry Peskov has addressed the scandal surrounding a video Vladimir Putin showed Oliver Stone, purportedly depicting Russian troops at work in Syria, though the footage was later revealed to be from U.S. forces fighting in Afghanistan. Peskov says the president received the video from Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.
“I can confirm that these materials did come from our Defense Ministry. It was part of a report submitted to the president. The defense minister gave this to the president,” Peskov said on Wednesday,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
