On August 30-31, media organizations falsely reported that Donetsk fighters had destroyed an American Hummer with American and Ukrainian soldiers inside of it. The articles were illustrated with a photo of the ruined vehicle as proof. The story was carried by 10 svodok, DNR24, Donbas – news today, dumaiu.ru, and the Bulgarian site radiozvezda.bg. The image also spread among social networks.

An image search, however, reveals that the photo is from the Anbar Province in Iraq and was taken on January 16, 2014. This can be verified by jbsnews.com and vice.com.
