BBC says it’s not possible to confirm the genuineness of these videos and yeah both the first two videos look pretty slick with good looking young people in them and well framed scenes, which could very well be staged. Maybe I’m just getting too cynical.
Either way there are allegations that both sides of the current conflict in eastern Ukraine make use of social media for their own propaganda purposes.
But anyway you be the judge for what you see.
See the full versions of some of the clips mentioned in the BBC report below. My favorite is the last clip: ‘Russian students to Ukrainian students: Forgive us, Forgive us, Forgive us’.
Ukrainian students ask their Russian counterparts to not believe propaganda
Russian students’ response message to Ukrainian students
Crimean students’ message to Ukrainian students
Russian students to Ukrainian students: Forgive us, Forgive us, Forgive us
