A banner installed by Russian soldiers in the Voronezh region (Russia), with the aim of generating motivation in the soldiers, became a joke on social media, for showing an American F/A-18 fighter jet as one of the symbols of the message. The poster was initially posted on a Telegram channel that shares information about the Russian military.
On the channel, self-attributed to a Russian military (although unconfirmed) , the author of the publication said: “The designer girls of Voronezh supported our soldiers as much as they could with a poster with the US F-18. Remove p*** from the banner! And the girls too!” .
The poster shows a Russian pilot and a fighter with the triumphal inscription: “The world was conquered by the Great and will be preserved by us”. Next to the image, in addition to the “Z” that identifies Russian troops in the Ukrainian war, an aircraft can also be seen. The curious thing is that the fighter does not belong to the Moscow fleet, but it is an American F-18 Hornet.

The propaganda piece is already running around the web, provoking jokes. A large part of social network users who commented on the publication criticize the propaganda battle, where everyone says what they want and almost everything without proof, aiming to manipulate public opinion. Anyway, this wouldn’t be the first time that a bizarre error like this has happened (and it shouldn’t be the last).
