The video claimed that Ukrainian football fans were detained in Qatar. Three drunken Ukrainians were spreading Nazi symbols in Doha. The men were detained for having a Nazi salute and sporting Hitler’s mustache, the mascot of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. However, Ukrainian fans had destroyed it even before it was detained. More than ten posters were also put up near the Al Bayt Stadium. Ukrainians offered no resistance at the time of the arrest. The criminals were kept in custody.

Fact Check:

To investigate the viral video, the DFRAC team first searched news in this regard on Google. So there we did not get any news about it.

Al Jazeera said in this tweet that a video quoting Al Jazeera is being circulated on social media referring to the arrest of Ukrainian fans during the FIFA World Cup. The video in question is completely fake and Al Jazeera has not published any news related to the story. 

Conclusion:

Therefore, it is clear from the fact check of DFRAC that the viral video is fake. Because Al Jazeera has not published any such report.
