Russian Federation releases video game screenshot as 'proof' U.S. is working with IS

The ministry said Russian air power had supported Syrian troops in freeing the town of Abu Kamal from Isis, and that "facts of direct cooperation and support provided by the US-led coalition to the ISIS terrorists" came to light during the operation.

Instead, it came from the smartphone game AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron. The ministry later deleted the images.

The ministry said an employee had mistakenly attached the photo.

Conflict Intelligence Team, a group of Russian online investigators who factcheck claims by the Russian military, said that the other four of the five photographs appear to be taken from 2016 footage released by Iraq's ministry of defence, depicting the Iraqi air force bombing Isis targets near Falluja. To make things worse for Russia's Ministry of Defense, they didn't completely crop out the "development footage" disclaimer. "All content subject to change". The statement wasn't even fully cropped out of the images that Russian Federation tweeted.

This week, Russian Federation took to social media to announce it had "irrefutable evidence" that the United States is helping ISIS.

Earlier today, the ministry tweeted three times in various languages, with a series of pictures accusing the USA of co-operation with the so-called Islamic state.

It also accused the US-led coalition of carrying out air operations in the area to interfere with possible Russian strikes, and alleged that IS forces were disguising themselves as US-backed SDF fighters.

"These facts give indisputable evidence that the USA, which (pretends) before the world community an irreconcilable fight against global terrorism, in fact provides cover for combat-capable IS units to restore their forces, regroup and be used for promoting US interests in the Middle East", the statement said.

U.S. military spokesman Colonel Ryan Dillon called the Russian statements a "barrage of lies", saying they were "as accurate as their air campaign".

"We find this behavior particularly disappointing and inconsistent with the spirit of the November 11 joint statement by the President of the United States and the President of the Russian Federation", said Maj.
