Russian Telegram channel shared a photo of a leaflet of Deep Sea World aquarium, reading "Meeting with our smartest seals!" and featuring British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and a seal. In their post, the propagandists wrote that the Irish people allegedly compared the IQ level of the politician and an animal in this way following the British Prime Minister's pro-Ukrainian speech at the Munich Security Conference.
Russian propagandists argue that the Irish are involved in the creation of the leaflet, while the Deep Sea World aquarium is located in Scotland. This is indicated by the phrase “Scotland’s national aquarium” and the address on the leaflet.
In addition, the Republic of Ireland, whose flag the Russians used in their post, is not part of the United Kingdom, unlike Northern Ireland.
In a comment to Ukrinform, Deep Sea World confirmed that the leaflet was a fake.
"The leaflet is a fake and was not made by us," the representatives of the aquarium said.
The Russians already created fakes featuring famous political names. They published a photo of a fake birth certificate allegedly belonging to a child from Khmelnytskyi region who was named Biden in honor of incumbent U.S. president. Ukrinform refuted this fake.
