On May 23, a Facebook page „პატრიოტული გვერდი“ (“Patriotic Page”) shared a post with a photo by Natalia Kapanadze, the owner of Iverioni, a non-governmental organization. The photo depicts an airplane salon decorated with frescoes. According to the author of the post, the airplane belongs to Air Serbia, a Serbian airline. The original post by Natalia Kapanadze had more than 100 comments and 170 shares as of May 25, while the post by the Patriotic Page had been shared by 56 users.

The disseminated photo is fake. In the original photo, the walls of the airplane salon are not decorated with frescoes.

Google Image Search found the original photo, dated 2014, on Flickr. The airplane belongs to Brussels Airlines, not Air Serbia.

The same photo has been disseminated on several occasions earlier as well. In 2017, Air Serbia stated that the salons of its airplanes are not decorated with frescoes.
