Propaganda: The Russian ministry of defense today claimed it had ‘irrefutable evidence’ the US is helping ISIS in the Middle East – and backed up its claim by posting pictures from a computer game, but they are actually scenes from AC-130 Gunship Simulator, a mobile video game produced by Byte Conveyor Studios and uploaded to YouTube in March 2015.

Russia is called out for falsely accusing the U.S. of aiding ISIS fighters.

On Tuesday, the Russian Ministry of Defense tweeted a photo they claimed was proof the U.S. was aiding ISIS military forces.

The photo showed an aerial angle of vehicles traveling on a dirt road.

Twitter users immediately noticed the photo was a screen shot taken from a Youtube video of the so-called video game “AC-130 Gunship Simulator.”

Another image the agency tweeted was taken from an old Iraqi Ministry of Defense video.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has since deleted their accusatory tweets.
