WHAT FAKES TALK ABOUT. 
HOW president JEENBEKOV WAS PROTECTED IN INSTAGRAM

4. WE CHECKED THESE ACCOUNTS - BY our criteria they ARE FAKES

3. some INSTAGRAM users STARTed TO DEFEND president JEENBEKOV

WHAT HAPPENED:

2. CHANGE.ORG was BLOCKED

1. A PETITION FOR presidential  IMPEACHMENT has appeared ON CHANGE.ORG 

what kind of fakes and who is raushan aitkulova?

on JULY 14 she BEGAN TO COLLECT SIGNATURES FOR THE presidential Impeachment ON THE CHANGE.ORG website.

on JULY 13 a JOURNALIST RAUSHAN AITKULOVA FILED A claim TO THE PROSECUTOR'S OFFICE against JEENBEKOV. SHE ACCUSED HIM of INSUFFICIENT FIGHT AGAINST THE covid-19.

JULY 15, CHANGE.ORG failed TO work IN KYRGYZSTAN.


THE SAME DAY some users started to praise the President and insult Aitkulova in instagram.

they asked NOT TO BELIEVE HER.

SUCH COMMENTS APPEARED UNDER THE POSTS OF some MEDIA, INCLUDING «KLOOP»

WE FOUND THIS STRANGE AND DECIDED TO CHECK ALL COMMENTS ABOUT RAUSHAN AITKULOVA AND THE presidential impeachment.

HERE IS ONE OF THE EXAMPLES:

HOW WE COLLECTED AND ANALYZED DATA:

- CHOSE MEDIA accounts IN INSTAGRAM

- OUR PROGRAMMERS scrapped COMMENTS FROM POSTS

- WE FILTERED AND ANALYZED THEM

- AMONG all other COMMENTS we FOUND FAKES according to our own criteria

As soon as we noticed strange comments on Kloop's Instagram, we decided to check the accounts of other news outlets and publics. To do this, we have compiled a list of news accounts with more than 1000 subscribers.

Our programmers wrote code and dumped comments under media posts over a three-week period: one week before the impeachment petition of the president appeared and two weeks after.

Then we filtered the comments by keywords: “impeachment”, “president”, “Raushan” and found comments from users who opposed Jeenbekov's resignation and scolded Aitkulova. We have also updated the database with all fake comments (not only about impeachment) since February 2020.

In the future, we once again rechecked all accounts manually, removed the closed ones and those that wrote with different rhetoric (equally praised and scolded the authorities).

1. PROFILES DO NOT HAVE followers (OR have few of them)

criteria OF FAKES:

2. usually  THEY DO NOT HAVE PHOTOS, COMMENTS AND posts

SOME fake ACCOUNTS try TO pretend to be real: they PUT profile photos, DOWNLOAD STOCK PHOTOS OR follow SEVERAL BLOGGERS

3. THESE fakes follow only MEDIA ACCOUNTS SUCH AS KLOOP, AZATTYK (RFE/RL), 24.KG, KAKTUS MEDIA, NEWS.KG, SPUTNIK AND OTHERS

WHAT FAKEs TALK ABOUT

Может судить надо раушан юсуповну за предательство и сжечь 5 паспортов ее

(MAYBE  RAUSHAN YUSUPOVNA must go for a trial for betray and get her 5 PASSPORTS burned

some of them were also about aitkulova

 THIS IS @ AZAT123661

ON HIS profile photo is A DOG WITH PUTIN'S EYES

IN COMMENTS, HE PROTECTS JEENBEKOV, demonizeds WESTern countries AND WRITeS THE SAME MESSAGES

«AT LEAST SOME GOOD NEWS, there is a HUMANITARIAN AID», - HE says UNDER THE KLOOP's post ABOUT THE stolen BIKE

WHAT IS AITKULOVA ACCUSED of?

MANY FAKE COMMENTS ARE the same and reproduced word by word.

WE FOUND 16 COMMENTS WRITTEN BY DIFFERENT USERS - ALL STARTED THE SAME BUT HAVE DIFFERENT endings

«аыеристка»

FUN FACT:

DIFFERENT FAKES have made the same mistake EIGHT TIMES AND WRoTE THE WORD аферистка  like:

ahfjrb:

@tttijh999 да это та самая аыеристка у которой 5 поспортов

ahfjrb:

Раушан юсуповна аыеристка у неё 5 паспортов отсидела

ahfjrb:

#раушан юсуповна аыеристка работающая на запад

azat123661:

#Раушан юсуповна не верте ей аыеристка с 5 паспортами

azat123661:

#Раушан юсуповна аыеристка отсидевшая срок пишет заявление на президента К Р

ahfjrb:

Если вы не знаете кто такая #Раушан юсуповна это аыеристка посмотрите про неё в интернете

ahfjrb:

Зачем случать аыеристка по имени #Раушан юсуповну

andr.ew1243:

Аыеристка #Раушан юсуповна работает на Америку готова за деньги предать свою страну

* 1 CLOUD = 1 COMMENT

FAKES are EARLY BIRDS

6, 10 AND 11 AM is fakes THE MOST POPULAR TIME FOR COMMENTING 

THEY "work" EVEN at  3 a.m.

WHAT ELSE FAkes TALK ABOUT?

Почему вы ругает нашего президента самый лучший из всех молодец

HERE IS WHAT FAKES also wrote (SPELLING AND PUNCTUATION is SAVED):

Атамбаевы разбогатели на крови погибших 87 наших ребят.

Этот Маматалиев может без пиара и афиширования заниматься благотворительностью?

Причём тут призидент сами шастаете по городу как собаки нет бы дома сидеть или заниматься своими делами нет надо сувать свой нос везде и всех ругать с дивана всех кроме себя самого начинать надо с нас а не обсерать всех

Для чего нам запад сколько ещё они. Удут продвигать свои идеи нам этого не надо

Наш президент самый лучший

он лучший президент не устали обсирать президентов он работает он один из лучших

P.S. just a rhetorical question: WHY IS JEENBEKOV SO STRONGLY PROTECTED by fakes?
