Fake A billboard appeared in Japan with the inscription: “Stop Zelenskyi, stop the war”

Users of the American segment of the social network X, formerly known as Twitter, Facebook and in the Russian segment of TikTok, are distributing a video with a digital billboard image with the alleged inscription: “Stop Zelenskyi, stop the war”. It's fake.

The fact-checkers of The Reuters paid attention to the case. A video circulated online allegedly featuring Zelenskyi on a billboard in Japan has been edited. Russian propaganda took a long video filmed 2 years ago as a base; before Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, it was posted by the verified YouTube account “Virtual Japan”, a streaming channel that shares videos of everyday life in Japan. At 21:22, pedestrians and passing cars can be seen in the background in the edited video. The video was filmed in Shibuya, Tokyo.

Thus, Russian propaganda is trying to discredit the support of Western partners and convince Ukrainians that tabroad they believe that it was Ukraine and Volodymyr Zelenskyi who started the war with Russia. In fact, Japan supports Ukraine in the fight against the aggressor, that is, Russia. Earlier, Detector Media talked about the message that the West is supplying weapons to Ukraine and thereby allegedly violates international law.
