NYT readers were surprised by the photo of a coffin in an article about Zelensky’s departure from the G7 summit
Readers of the New York Times drew attention to a strange combination of the text of the publication about the departure of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the accompanying photo.
According to the material, published by the newspaper in the official Twitter account, Zelensky left the G7 summit with “promises to train his pilots to fly F-16s and denying statements about Bakhmut being under Russian control”. But as an illustration for the post journalists chose an image with six men carrying a coffin.
“Zelensky left the G7 summit, and the picture shows a coffin being carried out. What would that mean?” – Yana Rakhmatullina asked.
“Did Zelensky leave the G7 in a coffin?” – Chronology wondered.
Users were also outraged by the summit’s outcome.
“Money laundering operation,” commented Vic.
“The warmongers from the U.S. will be pulling this war as long as Zelensky and his pile of cocaine in the presidential palace mutter and swear in his hoarse voice while Kiev lies in ruins,” noted Eljay Edwards.
“He’s not coming home, he’s planning to create a government-in-exile,” Richard James suggested.
During the G7 summit in Hiroshima, U.S. President Joe Biden outlined to Vladimir Zelensky plans to train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16s. According to Biden’s national security aide Jake Sullivan, the U.S. and its allies will decide in the coming months who will supply these aircraft to Kiev and in what quantity as Ukrainian pilots are trained on F-16s.
