Bogdan Vechirko, who rammed a mob of Americans in Minneapolis by truck, served in the Ukrainian army and was a supporter of Donald Trump.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disparaging disinformation about the Ukrainian army. In fact, Bogdan Vechirko, who drove into the protesters, has nothing to do with the Ukrainian army. This information was also refuted by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States confirmed that Bogdan Vechirko is a US citizen.
