COMMENTARY by Susan Katz Keating
Pro-Moscow channels on Telegram are circulating a video purporting to show Russian forces kicking battlefield butt in Ukraine.
But is it truth, or disinformation?
I saved the vid and passed the YouTube gatekeepers allow me to post it myself on our fledgling channel. I put an age restriction on the video because it seems to show dead bodies, and my mom-instincts came into play. But give it a look on the Soldier of Fortune YouTube channel, and decide for yourselves.
Hint: The dramatic music could be the best clue, closely followed by the Russian soldiers’ very clean, very new uniforms. Almost like they were pulled from the prop room at Russian Channel 1 state-owned television.
The Kremlin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
