The video "reports" that three Ukrainians drew a "Hitler mustache" on Laib, the 2022 World Cup mascot, and scrawled a Nazi salute next to him.

It is also claimed that the Ukrainians allegedly destroyed 10 more posters in the vicinity of Al Bayt Stadium, before they were arrested.

The video first appeared on Tuesday, and was widely shared on social media and went viral.

The style is similar to that of Al Jazeera's social media pieces.

Manar Adli, editor of MintPressNews, was among those who tweeted the video, her post shared by more than 2,000 Twitter users.

"Ukrainians were arrested in Qatar after drawing swastikas on football posters," she wrote, next to the video.

Al-Jazeera, for its part, hastened to issue a statement clarifying that it was a fake video and that it had nothing to do with the publications.
