Fact

Newschecker  noticed that the same video had gone viral in an earlier instance when the Russia-Ukraine war broke out in 2022.

We had fact checked the video back then, which can be read here.

The video showed WWII era airplanes, which clearly indicates that the video is not from recent times.
