Disinfo: Ukrainian soldiers bury a Russian separatist alive

Summary

Ukrainian soldiers bury a Russian separatist alive.

Disproof

Repeating a previously debunked disinformation by Stopfake: "the video appears to be spliced together, some footage is clear, some blurry. The difference in quality between various frames is apparent and makes one wonder how the footage was filmed. It is also unclear who the men are or that they are in fact Ukrainian military as they are not wearing Ukrainian uniforms or obvious insignia."
