Fake A video is circulating on the network where people in uniform take everything valuable in a German family and say “Heil Zelenskyi”

Anonymous telegram channels broadcasting pro-Kremlin rhetoric and the Ukrainian segment of Twitter spread the advertisement allegedly filmed by the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany party. In the video, people in uniform come to a German family and begin to take everything of value out of the apartment. Then they hang a portrait of Volodymyr Zelenskyi and say, “Heil Zelenskyi”. The main opinion of the video is that Ukraine is robbing the inhabitants of Germany. It's fake.

The case was studied by the fact-checkers of the Center for Strategic Communications. They determined that there was no such video on the website of the Alternative for Germany party. It is not mentioned in the German press, moreover, the video is actively distributed in pro-Kremlin blogs. Radio Liberty journalists found that Russian actors played the roles in this video, which suggests that the video itself was probably also filmed by Russians.

Thus, Russian propaganda is trying to discredit Germany and show that Ukraine is draining the resources of other countries. All this to reduce Western aid. Previously, we talked about the manipulation that Latvia transferred all the air defense systems to Ukraine and was left without protection.
