Disproof

In fact, Gennadiy Mokhnenko, chaplain and founder of the Charity Fund "Pilgrim" organized an activity outdoor to support the Ukrainian military at the front lines along the Azov Sea. According to Mokhnenko, they cleaned up several trenches, dugouts, pulled out weeds on "a territory that was safe for children".
