Fake In the Kyiv region, the director of the cemetery refused to provide a place for the burial of a Ukrainian military man

Russian media and anonymous telegram channels broadcasting pro-Kremlin rhetoric spread information that in the village of Piskivka, Buchanskyi district, Kyiv region, the director of the cemetery allegedly refused to provide a place for the burial of a Ukrainian military man, which is why the funeral procession was not allowed into the cemetery. They also add videos. It's fake.

The fact-checkers of the Myth Detector project drew attention to the case. In the video, the woman is outraged that the procession was not allowed through the main alley of the cemetery, because of which she went along the field road. Fact-checkers turned to the Piskivka community, where they completely denied this information. Moreover, this cemetery is not located in the village of Piskivka.

Probably, the procession was not allowed because of the main entrance, because repairs were being carried out there, so they had to take a detour. The checkers also confirmed that this cemetery is located in the Sviatovasylevska community of the Dnipropetrovsk region.

Thus, the Russian propaganda is trying to show that in Ukraine the Ukrainian military is treated with disdain and the society is split. Earlier, we refuted the fake that the Ukrainian military fired at the Togliatti-Odesa ammonia pipeline.
