Fake In Europe, they created graffiti “Glory to urine”

This information was disseminated by pro-Kremlin media. Reports say that in Europe, people began to massively create graffiti with the words “Glory to urine” - with allusions to the Ukrainian agenda. So propagandists publish three photographs from European cities where such graffiti is supposedly found. It's a lie.

The fact-checkers of the Brekhunets (Liar) project examined the case and found that all three photos were edited using photo editors. And with the help of a special tool - FotoForensics - they found out that the fake pictures showed signs of editing. The fact-checkers also decided to establish a correspondence between the photograph and the probable location of graffiti in European cities. The experts determined that none of the locations contained such graffiti.

Let us remind you that we previously documented a case where a billboard with the inscription “Glory to urine” was allegedly installed in New York.

At the same time, we have repeatedly analyzed fakes related to fake graffiti or covers on foreign magazines/newspapers. Thus, propagandists seek to show that their rhetoric (for example, that Zelenskyi is hated by the whole world) is also repeated in the West. The presence of a collective belief creates the impression of the truthfulness of all theses. Therefore, consumers of disinformation are more likely to believe such cases that demonstrate the “true cross-section of thoughts” of society. And subsequently they get the impression that the public is really dissatisfied with Ukraine.
