Ukrainian fact-checking site debunks propaganda

Debunking fakesThis photo supposedly shows a smiling Ukrainian eating the arm of a dead Russian. It was published on the Russian news site on June 6 and has been spreading on social media ever since. In reality, the photo is actually a behind-the-scene’s shot from the making of a 2008 Russian sci-fi movie, “We’re from the future”.
