Russian propaganda claims Ukraine uses Russian prisoners to clear landmines
Propaganda outlets are sharing a video that they claim shows Ukrainian military personnel forcing Russian prisoners to clear minefields
The Center for Countering Disinformation reported the information.
The Central has analyzed the video and identified several characteristics indicative of disinformation: an undisclosed location, faces obscured, and a deliberate effort to avoid showing crucial parts of the footage.
In the video, the individuals appearing as "military personnel" are wearing black shoes, while the official Ukrainian Armed Forces provide shoes of a different color. Additionally, there is a conspicuous green stripe on the legs of these individuals, whereas Ukrainian military personnel do not wear stripes on their legs.
"All of these indicators strongly suggest that this is yet another fabricated piece of propaganda aimed at vilifying the Ukrainian Armed Forces and accusing them of violating the Geneva Convention. Unlike Russia, Ukraine upholds the Geneva Convention on Prisoners of War and operates within the boundaries of international law, a fact consistently affirmed by international missions and organizations," underscores the Center for Сountering Disinformation.
Russian sources are disseminating false information claiming that Ukraine is plotting a terrorist attack in Dnipro during Rosh Hashanah.
