Russian Federation posts videogame image as 'irrefutable proof' United States helps IS

"The US are actually covering the [fleeing] ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East", the Ministry added.

The Russian Defense Ministry on Tuesday accused the USA -led coalition of interfering with the Russian air force to protect retreating Islamic State (IS) militants.

Russia's military admitted Tuesday that footage it initially claimed showed cooperation between the US and the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Syria actually originated from a computer game, but defended its findings with alternative evidence.

"This is the best evidence [Russia's defense ministry] are shameless liars, they take a video game screenshot then claim its from a specific location and date", Mr. Higgins tweeted Tuesday.

Users were quick to notice that one of the images was taken from a video game named "AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron". The images were from the game AC-130 Gunship Simulator, available for iOS and Android.

In the corner of the image, however, a few letters of the developer's disclaimer can still be seen: "Development footage".

AFP was able to compare the images in the emailed defence ministry statement with the images of the videogame on YouTube and confirm the resemblance. This is a work in progress.

The Russian Defense Ministry did what every other troll does when caught red-handed - it deleted both posts. It later reposted the same statement with different images.

The ministry also said that the USA coalition categorically refused to strike the retreating terrorists in spite of repeated proposals by the Russian military to conduct joint actions.

The ministry is investigating its civil employee who attached a wrong photo to illustrate the ministry's statement on Abu Kamal.

"We find this behavior particularly disappointing and inconsistent with the spirit of the November 11 joint statement by the President of the United States and the President of the Russian Federation", said Maj.

Coalition spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon called those claims, "about as accurate as their air campaign".
