Ukraine’s intelligence of the Ministry of Defense disrupted Russians’ deepfake attempt to contact the founder of Bayraktar company Haluk Bayraktar. Russian agent was disguised as Ukraine’s Prime Minister but met a fake secretary of Baykar company and was told he would go to prison.

“It should be noted that Russian agents had a low level of training and exposed themselves several times during the conversation. Including because of not knowing the correct pronunciation of the stable expression “babyne lito”, which they pronounced as the Russian “babye leto”. The purpose of this action was an attempt to discredit the cooperation between Ukraine and Turkey,” Ukraine’s Intelligence wrote.

Babyne lito is a Ukrainian phrase literally translated as grandmother’s summer, meaning warm days during autumn.
