There are videos of Russian aircraft, but they have nothing to do with the current conflict.

Planes flew over Moscow as part of a practise flyover for a national holiday in 2020.

A day after it was uploaded to YouTube, a video from May 2020 shows Russian military jets flying over Moscow.

Other clips from the video have been used in social media posts that falsely claim to show the Ukraine invasion.

The attack occurred early Thursday, after world leaders attempted to defuse what one described as “the most dangerous moment in European security in a generation.”
