The Republican Party of the United States shot a campaign video about the “exceptionalism of America”, which included footage from Russia, Ukraine and Slovakia. Huffpost writes about it.
So, when the text about the rich heritage of American history sounds in the clip, an oil rig near Volgograd appears. A running boy with a toy plane is also filmed there, the footage of which is accompanied by excerpts from the Declaration of Independence about “freedom and the pursuit of happiness.” The video also shows a Slovak store and a Ukrainian cornfield, RIA Novosti reports.
Huffpost believes that the creators of the video simply took advantage of public collections of “stock” video.
