Picture shared on social media on March 7 and 8, 2022, amidst Ukraine’s attack on Russia, claimed that Ukraine destroyed a Russian helicopter.
Sharing the picture, it was captioned that “AFU report may be reviewed on the destruction of a #Russian helicopter near #Vyshgorod.”
On reverse-image of the viral image, we found that this image is of February 24, 2022. The day the Russian invasion of Ukraine began.
Hence the viral picture has been found to be misleading.
