Russian official says statement on railway chief dismissal was hoax
A statement announcing that Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev had dismissed Russian Railways chief Vladimir Yakunin was a hoax, Medvedev’s spokeswoman Natalya Timakova said.
Timakova said the statement distributed to media outlets was made to look as if it had been sent by the government press service.
A Thomson Reuters security expert confirmed that the emailed announcement was an imitation that did originate from Russia, but not from the government press service.(Reuters)
