Russian Foreign Ministry posts outlandish fake news about Zelenskyy's ‘tattoo’

Russian Foreign Ministry’s official Twitter account has posted an absurd claim about the "tattoo" of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Jan. 16.

The post contained a photo collage taken during the visit of UK PM Rishi Sunak to Ukraine. In one photo, Zelenskyy stands between a Ukrainian soldier and Sunak in a hospital, and in another, Zelenskyy is taking a photo of Sunak with the same soldier. The Russian ministry attempted to merge the two images to present the soldier's hand, which bears a "There is no God” tattoo, as Zelenskyy’s—despite the Ukrainian president clearly standing opposite the soldier with Sunak.

“A picture worth a thousand words: ‘There is no God’ says the tattoo,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said.

Bellingcat founder Eliot Higgins commented on the bizarre post and noted that "that’s not how hands work.”

On Jan. 12, Zelenskyy met with Sunak in Kyiv. The two leaders signed a ten-year security agreement, designed to remain in force until Ukraine joins NATO.
