Recently, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that Sergei Shoigu checked the «forward positions of Russian units», however, it turned out that Shoigu was tens of kilometers from the front line. The GeoConfirmed project drew attention to this.
On December 18, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that Shoigu «circled around the areas of deployment of troops and checked the forward positions of Russian units». Meanwhile, GeoConfirmed volunteers geolocated the locations in the released video. It turned out that the trenches that fell into the camera lens and over which Shoigu flew were at a distance of 85 kilometers from the front line.
They show trenches to proof he flew over the front line while they are giving him an explanation (About what?)
but in reality he is flying 85km behind the front line.
Propaganda it seems.
