NATO accused Russian media companies of disinformation, the scale of which has increased significantly after the Russian annexation of Crimea in 2014. As companies actively spreading fakes NATO named Sputnik, and RT.

This was reported by Reuters, referring to the NATO spokesman Oana Lungescu.

As an example of disinformation published by Russian media Lungesku named the  message of prank joke in regard to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Prankers  talked to him ostensibly on behalf of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.

"This conversation never took place, and this is a typical example of of disinformation", said Lungesku.

Another example of disinformation, she said is the publication in July 2016 made by Sputnik, RT and other Russian news sites about the fire on a NATO base in Izmir, calling it a deliberate attempt to sabotage after a coup in Turkey. "We have contacted with Sputnik, RT and the other to add correct news, because there was a fire in the woods away from the base and did not have any relation to it," said Lungesku.
