Marianna, a young Ukrainian influencer, is accused by the Kremlin of being an actress and playing the role of a survivor of the bombing at Mariupol maternity hospital. Still, Marianna was pregnant, but Russia uses a new interview from the young woman to defend herself.

Marianna’s photo had gone around the world. Injured during the Russian bombing of the maternity hospital in Mariupol on March 9, 2022, the young woman was accused of being an actress by the Kremlin. The lie has since been exposed by Western media. Marianna is indeed a influencer but she was pregnant at the time. Russia now uses a different argument to defend herself and uses an interview filmed on April 2, 2022 in which the young woman speaks to explain herself.

In the video, Marianna elaborates on various language elements used by the Kremlin, most notably the origin of the explosions in the maternity ward of Mariupol “They told us there was no aerial bombardment, so we were right, we heard no aerial bombardment”she says. But this is fake car two journalists who were on the scene that day, have well recorded the sound of at least one aircraft, followed by two explosions in the maternity ward. As for the photo, Marianna speaks from Photo stolen But in reality, on images filmed by AFP, we hear exchanges between her and the journalists. She never says she doesn’t want to be filmed. Marianna therefore multiplies the inconsistencies in the interview, raising questions about the circumstances in That this is done. Questioned by a pro-Russian YouTuber, there is no indication that the young woman is speaking freely.
