Fake news of the week: Eismant accuses the Antibodies music band of Nazism

The head of Belarus-1 TV channel Ivan Eismant accused the Ukrainian music band Antibodies of Nazism

The head of Belarus-1 TV channel Ivan Eismant accused the Ukrainian music band Antibodies of Nazism. Here's what he said in the "Editors' Club" programme:

“Well, there is one more screenshot. The Ukrainian army’s helmet has been spotted with a lettering that means "To each their own" in German. Well, you know what it means”.

And for those who still don’t know, Katsyaryna Tshihamirava, an active employee of "Belarus-1" TV channel, explained in her Telegram channel. She posted the same photo after her boss:

“The lettering on the AFU soldier’s helmet "Jedem das Seine" ("To each their own") is a Nazi slogan that was placed, for example, on the gates of the Buchenwald concentration camp.”

Eismant and Tshihamirava show only a part of this photo and in a mirror image. It shows members of the Ukrainian music band Antibodies. They joined territorial defence, and posted a picture in uniform on their Instagram back on March 24. And, as you can see, there's no lettering on their helmets in the picture. And here's another video taken in the same days and in the same uniform. There's also no lettering either – it was just drawn.
