Putin’s lies scrubbed from Yuval Noah Harari’s new book

A bestselling author came under fire Wednesday after the Russian edition of his book on disinformation and ‘fake news’ scrapped all references to lies President Vladimir Putin has told.

The Russian-language version of Yuval Noah Harari’s ’21 Lessons for the 21st Century’ replaced a paragraph criticizing Putin’s portrayal of the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea with one about President Trump, according to The Times UK.

The English-language version described Putin’s statements about the arrival of Russian forces bearing no insignia in Crimea as an example of ‘a new and frightening era of ‘post-truth”.
