    Ukrainian President Says Surrender to Russia in Viral Video, Turns Deepfake

    Thursday, March 17, 2022, March 17, 2022 EDT Last Updated 2022-03-17T07:53:04Z

    In a video that went viral on social media, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky surrendered to Russia. It turned out that the video was a deepfake and has now been removed by several social media platforms.

    The deepfake video was first broadcast by Ukrainian news site TV24 after the alleged hack. The video shows Zelensky standing behind the podium and declaring that Ukraine has decided to return the Donbas to Russia and admits their fight has failed.

    The quality of the deepfake video is very poor and looks fake. In the video, Zelensky's head looks too big and a little blurry compared to the rest of his body.

    His face also kept looking straight ahead and his hands didn't seem to move. His fake voice also sounded deeper than his real voice. The video can be seen below and is clearly marked as a deepfake.

    Facebook and YouTube immediately moved quickly to crack down on the deepfake video. Meta's Head of Security Policy Nathaniel Gleicher said the video had been removed from his platform.

    "Today, our team identified and removed a deepfake video that claims to show President Zelensky issuing a statement he never did," Gleicher wrote on his Twitter account, as quoted from The Verge, Thursday (17/3/2022).

    "The video appeared on a website that was allegedly hacked and then started showing it on the internet."

    YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi said the video and its reuploaded version had been removed from the platform for violating its misinformation policy. A Twitter spokesperson said it was closely monitoring the spread of the video and would take strict action if caught violating company policies.

    Earlier this month, the Ukrainian government warned soldiers and civilians to be careful if they came across videos of Zelensky on the internet, especially if he announced his surrender to Russia.

    After the deepfake video went viral, Zelensky immediately uploaded a clarification video via his official Instagram account.

    "As for the latest childish provocations with calls to lay down arms, I only call on the troops of the Russian Federation to lay down their weapons and go home. We are here and will defend Ukraine," Zelensky said.
