Another picture from Ukraine is getting viral on social media. As the conflict between Russia and Ukraine is neither coming to an end nor has a settlement been made under the conflict.

In the picture, two civilians are holding AK 47 made up of Cardboard. People are claiming that some civilians will fight in the war with these cardboard guns against Russia. Ethan M. tweeted, ‘What is the max effective range of a cardboard AK-47?’ on 1st March 2022. Many users are spreading the picture on social media and making fun of Ukraine in the caption.

The picture is of a session conducted by Ukraine defence officials to teach how to hold and use weapons for survival in war. I-stock posted the same picture on 19th February 2022 and mentioned the territorial defence drill given to the people of Kharvik, Ukraine.

Business Insider India has also posted how people are spreading misleading news by using pictures.

Therefore, the claim is misleading as officers were taking drill sessions to civilians and not using them to fight in the war.
