Fact Check: Did a Ukrainian Girl Confront a Russian Soldier?

A viral video, shared widely on both Facebook and Twitter, claims to show a Ukrainian girl confronting “Putin’s army.”

The caption of the Facebook video, which has been viewed close to 60,000 times, reads: “A bravery little Ukrainian girl confronted an Russians army. Soo touching.”

The tweet, which has been viewed a million times, similarly reads: ‘“Go back to your country’: brave little girl confronts invading Putin’s Army.”


The video, however, does not show a young girl confronting a Russian soldier.
