The Russian government has reportedly been trying to tamper with the Wikipedia page relating to the Malaysian Airlines MH17 flight tragedy.
A Twitter bot that keeps watch on Wikipedia pages edited by Moscow spotted major changes to an entry about the crash.
A Russian language page originally said that the plane was “shot down by terrorists of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.”
This was subsequently changed to was “shot down by Ukrainian soldiers.”
So far, the Russian government has denied any responsibility for the crash that left 298 people dead.
Despite many pointing the finger at the Russian-backed rebels, Moscow said Ukraine bears “responsibility” for the tragedy.
President Obama said the passenger plane, flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, was shot down by a surface-to-air missile.
