Description of the fake LIE

Ukrainian nationalists are involved in the events of January 2021: the photo pictures Shaman with horns and a fur hat, and next to him is a Ukrainian Serhii Dubinin, associated with Azov, banned in Russia. The special services have already identified other Ukrainians who came to the Capitol that day.

This story was released by the Russian Channel One.

Refutation TRUTH

Dubinin was not a participant in the protest, he is a cameraman of the Ukrainian TV channel Inter. On January 6, 2021, the man was doing his job in Washington. There he took a photo with the participant of the protest.

The photo with Dubinin as evidence of the “Ukrainian trace” in the storming of the Capitol is often edited with another photo — where Dubinin poses in a helmet against the background of the destroyed Donetsk airport in 2014. That photo was also taken during a journalistic assignment at the Donetsk airport.

There is no other information about Dubinin’s connection with Azov on the Internet, as established by StopFake journalists.
