MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. In connection with the controversial video footage posted in the Internet on Monday ostensibly proving that a TASS photographer identified as Roman Saponkov, was making fun while an artillery battery in the background was bombarding Debaltsevo the Russian news agency officially declares that there is no such man on its staff.
"It is true that some images authored by this photographer can be found in the agency’s data base. They had been provided by a TASS partner — the agency Interpress. TASS has no contractual or other relations with the photographer in question," an official statement runs. "TASS is asking the mass media and Internet users to avoid replicating this falsehood."
