The Russian Defense Ministry released on Friday what it claimed to be staged combat scenes filmed on behalf of the Ukrainian government and paid for by the British government. The two short clips appear to be raw footage of what looks like a war movie.

The filming of the videos took place on May 28 in the town of Meshkovka in Ukraine’s Nikolaev Region, the ministry said. A train station of the same name is located on the outskirts of the provincial capital in the south of the country.

One of the videos shows two armored vehicles facing the camera. At the command of a woman, who appears to be the film director, the backdoor of the closest vehicle opens, and a group of armed men in uniform wearing red armbands starts pouring out. Several others rise from the grass around the second vehicle in the distance and start moving forward, their weapons raised.

The second clip is a shootout scene, with a group of armed uniformed men retreating through rubble while firing back at an unseen enemy. Pyrotechnics appear to simulate enemy fire. At one point, a professional-looking film crew comes into view.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the videos are meant to inspire confidence in Kiev’s fighting abilities both in Ukraine and Western nations, and to showcase the “supposed effectiveness” of Western weapons supplied to the country.

The shootout scene, according to the statement, is meant to be a recreation of a heroic Ukrainian stand against overwhelming Russian forces that never actually happened.

The first video, the Russian military claimed, is supposed to show advancing Russian troops, who were played by a group of Ukrainian militias. The statement claimed the film crew couldn’t get any actual Russian armored vehicles for the scene and used Ukrainian ones instead.

“The next filming session is scheduled for June 5 and 6,” Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov claimed. “The footage will be of staged testimony by ‘ordinary Ukrainians’ accusing Russia of supposedly firing at peaceful communities on purpose.”

The ministry claimed that the UK not only funded the filming, but also offered its creative input. The project was launched “amid Kiev’s political disaster in Mariupol and military defeats in the Donbass,” the statement said.

  1. while they live exiled on earth forgetting what was told at the time the stranded here on earth. like all forget and then start scrolling in circles creating deserts while trying to pray the elementals do the biologic seeding and growing for you.. right key..wrong keyhole. your “Eden” was and is on mars. just as where salomon had his temple. cant build a temple while youre going around killing his other races. its that simple. no temple no way home.

  2. Is there a possibility that Russia’s present attack on the Ukraine is actually a new type of Russian spiritual war weapon that is now attacking the USA, by encouraging the USA to do more of what the USA likes to do best, and that is to make up and broadcast many lies, and therefore to cause the result of this raining of many lies, which is to spiritually cause the worse possible weather in the USA ?

    Presently parts of the western USA is now having it’s worse historical drought, and it is getting worse. The timing of this drought is now over 20 years, which is also equal to the same timing of all of the possible USA lies about 9/11/2001 in NYC.

  3. It seems like the Hanukkah story over again.

    Regarding the Hanukkah story someone should mention the facts that the Syrian Greeks held and desecreted the Holy Temple in Jerusalem for 3 years, then it took six months to repair and purify the Temple.

    Evidence of above: Web search Josephus and Hanukkah.

    So why did the Jews not take just one week only to prepare the special olive oil for the Menorah to burn 8 days, during this six months of Holy Temple purification before the reopening Holy Temple dedication ?

    Also regarding the repeatedly proclaimed Hanukkah story miracle of defeating the Greek Syrian army, it was the exact same type of war as the earlier war against Babylon and then again against Rome in 70 AD.

  4. The pyrotechnic effects were downright cheesey, sparks flying from where the “bullets” hit-
    And why would the imbeciles allow the woman and crew to appear and give away the already obviously staged videos?
    Unless additional idiots uploaded the videos without editing out the crew😂
