The Kremlin media and z-Telegram channels of military reporters are distributing a photo showing former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson together with representatives of the Ukrainian professorship who allegedly gave a Nazi salute as the politician was awarded the title of honorary doctor of the Ivan Franko National University.
This is a fake. Russian propagandists fabricated the photo using Photoshop. In the original photo, Ukrainian scientists placed their hands over their hearts, while Boris Johnson's hands are down.
It is also worth noting that the Nazi salute is prohibited by the Criminal Code of Ukraine (Article 436, Chapter XX) as public use of the symbols of the totalitarian Nazi regime.
Earlier, Russian propaganda shared a fake video of a "Ukrainian" setting fire to a California DNA center over Nazism.
