Debunk claim:

Zvezda does not cite any particular source for this claim and only generically refers to Ukrainian and European media. The story, however, appears to stem from a dubious Ukrainian site called uac-info.com while the European media source is an article in an pro-Kremlin disinformation site called Contra Magazin.
