Fake Ants carried an icon of Jesus Christ from a destroyed house in Makiivka

In the Russian segment of TikTok, a video is being distributed where supposedly ants are carrying an icon of the Savior “from a house destroyed by a shell in Makiivka, where all the inhabitants died”. It's fake.

The case was investigated by the fact-checkers of the VoxCheck project. The video that was discovered shows that the image of Jesus Christ was added in a photo editor. The ants were actually carrying cookies. Also, fact checkers from Reuters previously refuted this video. According to their research, it appeared back in 2019, that is, before Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Previously, we talked about the manipulation that supposedly because of the blasphemy of Kyiv, flocks of dark birds are circling over the city.
