A newly formed, government-supported Ukrainian online army has picked apart a Russian propaganda video entitled “I'm a Russian occupier” in a video response of its own.

Ukrainian bloggers exposed the selective nature of the information given in the propaganda video, Ukraine Today reports. 

Contrary to the message of the original video that Russian occupation, in fact, positively influenced Siberia, the Baltic States, central Asia, and Ukraine, the Ukrainian bloggers stressed the negative impact on the ethnic population of affected areas.

Regarding the recent Russian occupation of some of Ukraine’s territory, the bloggers pointed to the massive humanitarian crisis that this has caused.

The Ukrainian online army is a recently launched project by Ukraine's Ministry of Information Policy that involves ordinary citizens united with the common aim of battling Russian propaganda online.
