The Economist magazine published its annual collection of predictions for 2016, which identify and explore the issues that will shape the year ahead. On the cover of the magazine are images of people that will have an impact on world in 2016. The cover pictures a range of prominent people from politics, business, science and economy.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko posted the cover on his “Twitter” account, where among the other world leaders was the image of him. However, the original cover had a picture of the Russian president Putin, so Poroshenko replaced the face of the Russian leader with his own, and posted a fake image.
Poroshenko’s tweet was deleted within 15 minutes after publishing. Naturally, users of social networks immediately ridiculed Petro Poroshenko for the fake cover.
