The image in the advertisement turned out to be a stock photo, available on the Internet with the title “silhouettes of soldiers and air forces against the background of the sunset sky.
The photo of Russian fighter jets was used in a fundraising advertisement for U.S. President Donald Trump’s campaign to “support our troops. This was reported by the European Truth daily on Tuesday, September 15. Later, the advertisement was removed and made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, which is run by the Republican National Committee and Trump’s campaign. The poster shows the silhouettes of five soldiers in the background of sunset, with three planes flying over their heads.
Pierre Spray, who helped design the U.S. Air Force aircraft, said the aircraft used in the advertisement were definitely Mig-29. “I’m glad to see that Mig-29 is supporting our troops,” Spree said.
Ruslan Pukhov, director of the Center for Analysis of Strategies and Technologies in Moscow, also confirmed this. He specified that at least one of the soldiers on the image is armed with a Russian-made AK-74 rifle.

As previously reported, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services corrected reports from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention so that they did not contradict Trump’s words about the coronavirus.
