LONDON – It appears that a user of FlightRadar24 has provided fake ADS-B data of the Antonov AN-225 Mriya circling Kyiv with an expletive towards President Vladimir Putin.

The flight-tracking company has since deleted the data, with the user offering a callsign of “FCKPUTIN”.

FlightRadar24 hasn’t provided a comment as of yet regarding the fake data being placed on their website.

It obviously seems that whoever has done this is angry with President Putin because of the invasion of Ukraine as well as the destruction of the aircraft, which was confirmed over a week ago.

This is a developing story.
