Lifenews reports about it here saying 'Cyber Berkut' got the video by email.
Interpretermag discusses it here.
Why is the video fake?
We have seen similar videos and stories by Russian media ALL THE TIME.
There was this fake story about a crucified baby:
Also Lifenews accused THIS BLOG of having published a prefabricated story by the Ukrainian SBU on the Russian GRAD attack on Volnovakha. Documents proving this were captured by... yes: Cyber Berkut. Read about it here.
So... LifeNews aka LieNews has VERY little credibility on such stories.
Another such fake (and graphic) video was by Right Sector cutting the throat of an ex policeman in front of his wife:
Video is as FAKE as it can get - sick agitprop. Any Q's @GrahamWP_UK? http://t.co/0jzPQQ6cf5 @StopFakingNews @roarbro pic.twitter.com/LBaNDwbCdeAnother similar fake was an 'execution by point blank guns' in Slovyansk last year:

See this article for instance.
And some more (might be disturbing to watch even when fake):
More fake videos by same Russian "actors" as in tonight's video: Fake hanging https://t.co/AxYL7qEfiz Fake execution https://t.co/ZOwLl4rHDF

This crucifiction video is of the same kind and probably even produced by the same people.
When he gets hit with a stick in his stomach it doesn't even look like it's painful. For a man being killed they poke him really nice and kind.
Just before the fire gets too bad, they cut the video.
It's as fake as can be.
The problem is Russia needs such kind of fakery to brainwash its citizens to have them accept the war against Ukraine.
@GorseFires Unfortunately, they were very effective: many civilians were butchered by Serb militias avenging a non-existent "crucifiction".

And they produced another crude one:
CyberBerkut now even comes with an ISIS fake: a video found on the computer of McCain showing a hollywood production of an ISIS-beheading...
