One of the posts claims that the graffiti of Zelensky swallowing money is located in the suburbs of Paris, opposite the Saint-Mandé metro station. The Cube did a reverse image search but found nothing conclusive. The analysis showed a noticeable difference in color and intensity between the graffiti and the background, strongly suggesting that the image was tampered with.

AFP journalists reported that they called hotels and shops near this metro station, but no one had ever seen such graffiti. All this suggests that the photo was faked.
