Terminally ill kids forced to line up in snow to form Z for Russian propaganda

A group of terminally ill children have tragically been made to stand outside in freezing conditions to make the letter 'Z', which has become the symbol of support for Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Ever since Russian President Vladimir Putin sent troops across the border into Ukraine, Russian military vehicles have been spotted with various symbols on them.

Within these symbols, the letter Z has been commonly seen, which is believed to have been dubbed as a sign of support for Russia's brutal actions.

Patients and employees of a cancer hospice in Russia have been enlisted for a "flash mob" to form the letter 'Z' for a photograph in support of of the Ukraine invasion, LADbible reports.

The Chairman of the Board of the Public Charitable Foundation for Helping Children with Leukaemia, Vladimir Vavilov, organised the propaganda piece, according to the hospice's website.

Vavilov told the publication Tatar-inform: "The action took place in the morning. Our patients and the entire team took part in it – about 60 people in total. People lined up in the shape of the letter Z.
