 Russian Armed Forces General Staff found out in a lie about Turkey buying oil from Islamic State. PHOTOS

The Russian Defense Ministry has once again been caught in a lie. The version of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation regarding the purchase of oil by Turkey from ISIS appeared to be ludicrous.

This is stated in the article of international volunteer community InformNapalm, Censor.NET reports.

"Dec. 2, 2015, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation has submitted a "proof that Turkey was purchasing oil from the Islamic State", which was backed by "visual" evidence," the open-source investigators remind.

The representatives of the Russian General Staff handled mainly satellite images of a parking area with the tank trucks full of smuggled petroleum products dated Nov. 14, 2015. The Russian military assured that they recorded over 3,000 fuel tankers and trucks allegedly intended to be transported to Turkey.

"InformNapalm analysts have found this place using GoogleEarth and made a print screen of the area from the GoogleEarth archive dated Dec. 15, 2004. The location data is 37.1753294, 42.556057. Its name in Turkish is TİCARİ ARAÇ PARK YERİ (Sıra Bekleme). Taking into consideration Google satellite images and following the "logic" of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, one can conclude that Turkish President Erdogan has been trading oil obtained from Islamic State since 2004, although the ISIS (formerly called "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant") exists only since 2013. There was also a parking area 11 years ago and the number of vehicles there was the same as on the photo of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces. It is also possible to notice changes in the infrastructure of that place over 11 years.

"We also cite the quotation from Facebook of one of our colleagues from Information Resistance group - information security expert of the Center for military and political studies Viacheslav Husarov with his fair comments: "Since when the Russian Defense Ministry has the authority to search for evidence of "illegal oil deliveries to Turkey"? Do they have such functions? Or are they authorized to determine what information should be spread? The situation is only vaguely resembles the times of the military dictatorship."

"The General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces has once again been caught in a lie. In this regard, we want to recall the statement of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation of Dec. 2014, when the Chief of Staff Gerasimov said that evidence of the presence of the Russian troops in Ukraine was a "primitive fake", meaning the revelatory articles by InformNapalm and other OSINT-teams. So which of us is a liar, Mr. Gerasimov?" the authors of the article wonder.
