Russian fake: ‘Mercenary’ from Poland wanted for murder in Ukraine

Propagandists faked a wanted ad with language mistakes

Kremlin pool media and z-Telegram channels share a photo of a man allegedly wanted by the Ukrainian police. According to propagandists, Ukrainian security forces search for a Polish citizen who allegedly served in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, escaped from a military unit in Poltava region and committed a murder.

This is fake. Such a person is not on a wanted list available on the official website of the National Police Department in Poltava Region where all data on crimes in the region are published.

The "wanted ad" text contains phrases typical of the Russian language and mistakes.

Earlier, Russian propagandists spread fakes that Poland was creating an entire infantry corps for the war in Ukraine and was handing over Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine along with Polish crews.
