A photograph seemingly showing a city celebration in Lviv featuring a swastika is actively being circulated in social media. The photograph features a girl standing beneath a banner which reads “Long live the German Army! Glory to a free Ukraine!” The banner features the German eagle, swastikas and a portrait of Adolf Hitler. In the background we see a Ukrainian and a Nazi flag flying at the entrance of a building.
Attempts to discredit Lviv with this very same photograph have happened before. On September 25, 2014 a VKontakte group calling itself Kh**vyi Kharkov (F*&^ing Kharkiv) posted this very same photo, along with several others featuring Nazi slogans and flags.
This photograph has nothing at all to do with Lviv. It is a still from the film Match by Russian director Andrey Maliukov. Shot in 2011 in Kharkiv and Kyiv, the film tells the story of a 1942 football match between Soviet and German players in Nazi occupied Kyiv. A still from the film shows the banner from a different angle.
