A video of armoured vehicles has been viewed thousands of times in multiple social media posts in April 2021 which claim it shows Chinese troops in Myanmar, where there has been escalating unrest since a military coup on February 1, 2021. The claim is false: the video was actually filmed in China’s Yunnan province; the same video has circulated online since at least August 2019.
