It is not known where or when the footage was captured. However, according to Newsweek, the footage has been put to the Russian Defense Ministry.

Several instances of unverified and inaccurate footage have been circulated on social media. In some cases, it has been accompanied by claims of propaganda by both sides.

The Russian president may be relieved to see he has been given "weapons" from despot Kim Jong-un, especially as Professor Anthony Glees alleges Ukrainian "birthday raids" are to be carried out.

It may be the last birthday for the Russian president too, should the war in Ukraine lead to a major loss for Russia.
