DEBUNKED: Corporate Media’s Top Trending Ukraine Stories Turn Out To Be Complete Fakes
The Ukraine’s resistance has nothing to prove they progress in defensing their country from the Russian special military operation against their Nazi government that is why they use a lot of fake stories spreading them through the social media.
The most popular is of course The “Martyrs” of the Snake Island.
Thirteen Ukraine Border guards deployed on the Snake Island in the Black Sea. The Ukraine government quickly listed them in “heroically died” soldiers. President Volodymyr Zelensky promised to recognize each solder with the title of Hero of Ukraine.

Ghost of Kyiv kills 5 Russian jets by himself.
Woman passes out sunflower seeds to Russians so they’ll “grow flowers when they die.”
25 y/o woman says she’ll make Molotov cocktails this weekend.
Ukrainians are fighters. Putin can go to hell.
Days later it was revealed that all thirteen soldiers were alive and captivated by the Russian military. They were removed from the Island, given water and food before being transported back home to their families.
The next debunked video is a “heartbreaking” video of the Ukraine soldiers in Kyiv kissing their loved ones before allegedly departing to fight the so-called “Russian invaders,” the invaders who did not make any gunshot against the Ukraine civilians.
The video turns out to be a clip from a 2017 film “The War of Chimeras.”
“The story of war, love and death that was documented by the immediate participants of events. Off screen and later on it are the two – a boy and a girl. He volunteered for the front; she went to the place just after the battle,” explains its plot summary.

One more supposedly created by the notorious hacker group “Anonymous” threatened to launch massive cyberattacks and empty the bank accounts of Russian citizens who refused to protest Putin in a minute-long video circulating across social media platforms.
“On March 3rd, 2022, all money will be debited from your bank accounts and transferred in favor of the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” claimed a video voiceover, appearing to attempt to try to get Russian citizens to withdraw funds from their bank accounts.
CORRECTION: Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation said the video address by the Anonymous hacker group that threatened to withdraw money from Russians' bank accounts if they don't protest Putin turned out to be fake.— The Kyiv Independent (@KyivIndependent) February 28, 2022
Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation, however, admitted that the video wasn’t actually created by Anonymous.
Another photo that went viral is the image of two Ukrainian children sending off soldiers to fight Russians.
Pro-war Representative Adam Kinzinger even shared the picture. In reality, the dramatic image actually traces its roots over half of a decade back to Ukraine in 2016 and has appeared in several news stories since then.
And this is not the full list of the fakes that the Ukranian propaganda uses to spread the misinformation against the Russia.
