Photo Fake: Maternity Hospital Personnel in Dnipropetrovsk Cut Swastika on a Newborn Child

A screenshot from the page of the Vkontakte group “Antimaidan” is being spread around networks. It shows a newborn child who allegedly has a swastika cut on his/her arm. The photo has a following caption: “Shock! Personnel of one of the maternity hospitals in Dnipropetrovsk learned that a birthing mother was a refugee from Donbas and a wife of a perished militia man, decided to play a cruel trick on her baby and made a cut in the form of swastika. Three months passed but a scar still can be seen”.

But this photo is a forgery. Its original can be easily found in Internet. And on it a baby has no wounds.
