Disclosure Users are lured into comments under fake messages about fallen soldiers and their photos and texts are replaced

In the West of Ukraine, in recent days, a message has been circulating on social networks calling for congratulations on the birthday of a fallen soldier. Users noticed that the message is distributing a portrait of Sashko Syvyi, who fell at the front in 2014, although his date of birth is different.

The authors of the "Brekhunets" project ("Liar" project) have tracked that messages calling for congratulations to fallen heroes in Facebook communities first collect a lot of comments, and then their content is transformed by replacing text, photos, or adding links to garbage sites.
