Propaganda from Eastern Europe has forced Sasha Grey to come out and deny she was killed by the Ukrainian military. The rumor began on with a fake post on Dvach, the Eastern European equivalent of 4Chan. The post said a nurse named Sasha Serova, which loosely translates to Sasha Grey, was kidnapped, humiliated, and murdered by Ukrainian troops. False news of the former adult film star's demise spread to VKontakte, the Russian Facebook.
Yesterday Grey hopped on Twitter for the strange task of saying she isn't dead. Her string of tweets also mentioned previous propaganda that pegged her as a Ukraine supporter because she told Kiev protesters to "stay strong."

Just an FYI some other conservative propaganda outlet labeled me & other Russian artists as friends of the Hunta just last summer/fall.— Sasha Grey (@SashaGrey) February 18, 2015
So to make it clear FIRST I was the ENEMY & now I'm a FRIEND because this was supposedly the fault of Ukrainians.— Sasha Grey (@SashaGrey) February 18, 2015

This has been thoroughly weird, even for propaganda. And Russia.
