On October 6, US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker wrote a post about victims of “Russia’s aggression in eastern Ukraine”.
However, the problem is that Volker illustrated his allegations by a photo of old woman, who is well known for being a vicim of actions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
These are some of the many victims of Russia’s aggression in eastern Ukraine. We can stop the suffering if Russia was willing to choose #peace4Ukraine. https://t.co/u7S4RA9hbb pic.twitter.com/mWLC1Xxvew

Twitter users immidiately pointed outed this:
Ask this poor woman who is doing the bombing! The UAF and it’s azov counterparts have been spreading fear and death just as the OUN they so admire did during and after WW2. Your a despicable piece of trash.

Maria Shevchenko, 86, survived WWII shellings and now she is hiding from 🇺🇦 army punitive ops near “Trudovskaya” mining facility. We call on all Western officials to mute their #BlameRussia tune and immidiately make #Ukraine stop bombarding Donbass elderly pic.twitter.com/9IRpzuwca6
