Fake Amnesty International Secretary General urges Ukrainian Armed Forces not to fire at newly mobilized Russians

This news is spreading on social networks, in particular in the Russian and Ukrainian segments of Facebook. Amnesty International Secretary-General Agnes Callamard is reportedly urging the Ukrainian military not to fire at newly mobilized and not yet trained Russian soldiers. After all, shooting at them is very unfair. A photo collage is attached to the publication, where the secretary general is allegedly standing in the center of Moscow. However, the official did not make such appeals.

According to StopFake's fact-checkers, Amnesty International's general secretary, Agnès Callamard, made no such claims. This statement was first published by a parody Twitter account, after which it circulated online without indicating the source. This Twitter page regularly posts satirical fictitious news and sneers about Russian propaganda.
