Claim: this is a photo of a Russian sniper. Other captions used:
- Russian female soldier in WW2
- A Yugoslav partisan fighter in World War II
- Beautiful Liberator
The claim is false. The original picture has been modified to look old:
This is a promotional photo for a 2005 TV-series called “A zori zdes tikhie” aka “The Dawns Here Are Quiet”. In the picture: Zhenya Komelkova, a fictional character played by Russian actress Darya Charusha. Picture source: domkino.tv
This Chinese TV series is based on a book by Boris Vasilyev. The character Zhenya Komelkova was not a sniper.
