Ukraine: Video is said to show Chinese military convoy – a fake

See the video: Video is supposed to show Chinese military convoy in Ukraine – what is it all about?

A Chinese military convoy in Ukraine – this allegedly recent video is causing confusion and uncertainty on social media.

The video has been circulating on social media, along with claims that the clip is intended to show Chinese army vehicles in Ukraine.

It is implied that troops from the Middle Kingdom would take part in the war in Eastern Europe – a fake!

The video has been viewed more than 200,000 times on Twitter alone and has been shared by numerous users.

But what is the video really all about?

The video isn’t up to date – it also doesn’t show Chinese troops in Ukraine.

The clip will be published on YouTube on August 30, 2022 – the title of the video here is “Vostok-2022”.

“Vostok 2022” is a multinational military exercise involving Russian and Chinese troops, among others.

The exercise was held from August 30 to September 5, 2022 in eastern Russia, thousands of kilometers from Ukraine.

The Chinese troops in the video are participating in the maneuvers and not in the Ukraine war.

The case shows how easily misleading accompanying text can turn a genuine video into a hoax.

For example, Chinese troops taking part in a military exercise in Russia are said to become soldiers taking part in the Ukraine war.

How do we check videos for manipulation in the editorial office? It is important to look at the details. The individual frames of a video often reveal whether a video has been edited. We take a close look at each image and enlarge individual sections. Indications of a fake are, for example: lack of motion blur, unnatural shadows or editing errors. The general rule at stern is: Seriousness before speed. We always double-check facts and material thoroughly before publishing them. For this we work with the cross-editorial “Team Verification” together with RTL, NTV, RTL2, Radio NRW.
