As of January 3, the “Folder in a Package” Telegram bot — it is this bot that allows you to “draw” inscriptions with the bodies of Russian invaders — has already been used by more than 50,000 people, Khmarochos reports, citing one of the developers.
The flash mob with the publication of pictures on social networks with funny phrases written by the bodies of Russian soldiers began on January 1 – after a screenshot of the news from the Russian website Komsomolskaya Pravda appeared that “Ukrainian Nazis laid out on the battlefield a portrait of Stepan Bandera from the corpses of his Russian soldiers.” And yes, this screenshot and the content of the news are fake.
Who exactly painted the portrait of Stepan Bandera with the bodies of Russian soldiers is still unknown. Whoever it was, he or she simply used the Ukrainian snowy field background from the Folder in a Bag template, after brushing over their watermark. This picture went viral and started an ongoing flash mob. Here are a few examples of such works created by Ukrainians since the beginning of the new year.
As for the Telegram bot “Folder in the package”, it is not new. Back in early summer, artist Ivan Volyansky made a picture in Photoshop with the bodies of Russians against a snowy background. Then the idea arose to create a Telegram bot to generate a picture in two clicks. In October, on Putin’s birthday, the developers added a sandy background and the ability to overlay a frame in the style of postcards with Viber.
