Agency: Bickerstaff

Only one small detail - after their departure, the greeting turned into images of Ukrainian cities, destroyed buildings, or photos of soldiers. Yes, Russians saw the truth about the war in Ukraine through gifs.
As a result, 8 of the top 15 Viber gifs were from Bickerstaff.457. Another 20 were displayed on the first eight search pages. About 3 million Russians who searched for "Easter" in the messenger received and spread the truth about the war in Ukraine.

The local authorities said that this was a response "to the multiple frequencies of use of the service as part of the military infrastructure."
