UPD: 07/31/2014 The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation persistently tried to correct an article in the German Wikipedia, barring terrorists. PHOTO fact
On the morning of July 29, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation tried for five times five times to correct an article in the German Wikipedia about the Boeing 777 crash.
As follows from the history of the article’s revisions , the FSO tried to change the words “Separatisten” (“separatists”) to “Rebellen”, “Aufstandischen” (“rebels”), “militarische Fuhrung” (“military leadership”), and “ Separatistenfuhrer ”(“ Separatist leader ”) - at“ Aufstandische Ministerprasident ”(“ Prime Minister of the rebels ”).
But each time after the FSO edits, German Wikipedia users returned the original wording. The "fight of edits" lasted about half an hour.
This is not the first time that Russian authorities have made edits to Wikipedia pages in foreign languages. On July 23, the “State Information” account published statistics of edits from IP of Russian state organizations from 2005 to 2014. In total, 189 changes were made during this time. In 2013, the VGTRK company was the most active encyclopedia rule, and in 2012 - the FSO.

Shortly after the crash, an article on the Su-25 aircraft was amended from unknown Moscow IP addresses. The information about its technical characteristics was corrected.
UPD: 07/31/2014 Residents of Donetsk in the conditions of occupation are fighting terrorists, and advise Girkin to shoot himself. PHOTO
Some residents of Donetsk in the conditions of occupation chose a rather extraordinary way of psychological struggle against the invaders.
"There have already been reports that locals are slowly shooting fighters, but, for obvious reasons, there is no reliable information on this matter. I think they are really shooting, they just don’t report on their pages on social networks. Perhaps we will find out the details after the war. But you can report on the resistance to the power of art. Below is the work of the art group Murzilka, "writes blogger paulskp.
All photos are taken in Donetsk.
UPD: 07/31/2014 In Rostov-on-Don, residents detained two armored personnel carriers without numbers that were traveling to the front in Ukraine. A PHOTO
On Tuesday evening, an incident involving two pieces of armored vehicles occurred in the village of Chkalovsky.
Photos about the accident were posted on his Facebook page by user Sergei Rostovtsev, according to the Novaya Gazeta blog. According to eyewitnesses, at about 9 p.m. on Vyatskaya Street, drivers and pedestrians noticed two armored vehicles moving in the lane. In fact, now in Rostov, few can surprise anyone; she regularly walks the streets of the Don capital. But these combat units differed from the usual vehicles: both with their license plates, in some places the metal was very rusty, without the accompaniment of a military traffic police.
As a result, the townspeople decided to act quickly and dramatically: they blocked the course for combat vehicles, surrounded them with cars, and called the traffic police. At the same time, they tried to reach out (literally) to those inside the armored vehicles. But the contact did not work - only a few butts flew out through the hatch into the outside world.
The trial with traffic police officers who arrived at the emergency site lasted about an hour and a half. After which (as the participants in the event write in the comments) the police received a command from the radio: do not detain the armored vehicles, moreover, escort it beyond the city limits of the Don capital. That, supposedly, was done: under the protection of police officers, the cars drove towards the exit from Rostov to Novoshakhtinsk. The press service of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation for the Rostov Region could not comment on civilians yesterday’s blocking of military equipment: this incident does not appear in the incident reports. It was previously reported that a 15-km military convoy consisting of armored personnel carriers and heavy tracked vehicles was seen near Kaluga.
