FACT CHECK: Does This Video Show Proof The Ukraine War Is Staged?
A video shared on Instagram allegedly shows footage proving claims of staging during the Russian-Ukrainian war.
The clips in the videos are from various movie and music video sets. There is no evidence suggesting any footage from the conflict is staged.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba voiced concerns about losing U.S. aid if Republicans win control of the House, Axios reported. President Joe Biden recently became agitated with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy during a phone call regarding U.S. aid in June, with the Ukrainian leader reportedly listing off aid he needed “and wasn’t getting,” NBC reported.
The Instagram video shows a compilation of war imagery, including a tank and soldier in pain, being staged and filmed. The narrators of the video imply that the footage is proof the Ukrainian war is fake and compare it to an episode of “Star Trek.”
“Wake up call How they FOOLED about Zelensky & Ukraine,” the caption reads. (RELATED: Does This Photo Show A Gepard Tank Firing At The Sky In Ukraine?)
The second clip is from a London movie set in 2013 which was featured on YouTube in 2013 with the title, “Invasion Planet Earth BTS run for your life Birmingham.” “Invasion Planet Earth” was released in 2019, according to IMDb.
Check Your Fact debunked a claim in March that there was no “raw footage” of the war available. New footage from the Russian-Ukrainian war is often released by either Ukrainian government agencies, open-source intelligence accounts and supporters of the Russian government.
