We reversed searched the image and found out that the woman on the left is the first woman army brigadier of Ukraine Colonel Tetiana Ostashchenko.
An article about her was given in a Ukrainian multimedia platform JKRINFORM
Whereas the women she was being misunderstood was Inna Derusova, the first woman of his country for the title of ‘Hero of Ukraine’ posthumously, for displaying exemplary courage and bravery in the ongoing conflict with Russia.
Which was given to her by president zelensky.
A Facebook page too conformed her death and shared the picture of Inna Derusova, Along with a long paragraph explaining her and her achievements.
As you can see in the collage both the woman are different from each. Therefore the woman seem with zelensky is Colonel Tetiana Ostashchenko and not Inna Derosova. Hence making the claims of people false.
Claim Review: Truth behind Zelensky viral video with a woman who died on Feb 26th.
Claimed by: many social media
Fact Check: fake.
