The images show a training exercise, not the actual aftermath of any fighting. The photos also predate the current conflict in Ukraine.
International oil prices are expected to rise after a cap imposed by Russia on crude exports was triggered, according to BBC News. U.S. intelligence has warned Russian President Vladimir Putin was “better informed” about the Ukrainian war than before, The Guardian reported.
Social media users are sharing images of a woman covered with bloodstains, while claiming that the Ukrainians were staging dead bodies. (RELATED: Does This Video Show Proof The Ukraine War Is Staged?)
“Fake War Ukraine Photos from the phone of an employee of the Ukrainian CIPSO shocked everyone The photo shows how the girl is being made up. Then they put it on the asphalt and take a picture,” reads the tweet.
The image, however, can be traced back to 2016 and is part of a training exercise. At least one of the images was shared on the Instagram account of a woman who identifies as a Ukrainian combat medic. She also appears to be the same woman in two of the images in the Twitter post.

The Instagram post is accompanied by the number 44, which is a reference to the Ukrainian medical training center 44Center. 44Center hosts medical trainings, and it appears that this woman participated in at least one exercise.
A Twitter account with a similar handle to the Instagram account, @deathkitty0401, claimed that “enemy propagandists” stole her photos from training exercises in 2016.
Ворожі пропагандисти вкрали з інстаграму моі фото з тренінгів за 2016 рік і видали це як успішне викриття спецоперації українського ІПСО по постановочних відео в Херсоні 🤟🏻😂 як тобі таке, Ілон? pic.twitter.com/YOp98J8Ala

“Enemy propagandists stole my photos from training sessions in 2016 from Instagram and passed it off as a successful exposure of the special operation of the Ukrainian IPSO on production videos in Kherson,” reads the tweet.
