Russian news agency lies about Kosovo’s independence declaration

Well-known Russian news agency RIA-Novosti said that Lluís Maria de Puig, President of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly (PACE) “expressed his regret for the fact that Kosovo’s parliament adopted unilateral declaration of independence from Serbia on Sunday” (in Russian: http://www.rian.ru/world/20080217/99451692.html)

whereas in fact, here is what was said in reality: “I regret that the two sides have been unable to reach compromise on the status of Kosovo – as the Assembly has repeatedly called for” http://assembly.coe.int/ASP/Press/StopPressView.asp?ID=2011

It looks, Russian news agencies can hardly be called informational bodies, but rather should be called misleading propagandist tools
