New flip trick of Russian Trolls exposed

On 12-6 a photo appeared of a supposedly destroyed tank by the Ukrainian army.

This was a tweet about it:
By right-clicking and choosing Google Image Search, you can check if this image has been published before. Since no result came forward, the message seems authentic and indeed being generated today.
Therefore many people tweeted about this as a possibly genuine event.

Yet, @IgorBrigadir pointed out that a horizontal flip of the image DOES generate Google results. And the image appears to be from Georgia 2008.

It means the Russian False Propaganda Trolls are deliberately flipping old photos to make it appear as genuine.

YOU ARE WARNED NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
