The screenshot of an article purportedly published by The New York Times shows a headline: “Let’s go to the aid of Ukraine,” with a strapline, “The White House decided to send a limited contingent of troops to Ukraine. They won’t survive without us.” It’s claimed that White House has made a decision to send limited number of troops to Ukraine, which some believe could provoke Moscow to initiate World War III.

The image is shared on Facebook with a caption: “BREAKING – The White House decided to SEND a limited contingent of TROOPS TO UKRAINE Can be seen as a reason to start World War III because it was officially declared. Meanwhile, keep updated Subscribe to @WW3INFO”
