The light from the yellow headlights moves across the floor. However, the floorboard in the second video (photo at right) didn’t hit the headlights, and the guy with the flag walks a bit further away from it. The sight on the left should have been turned back a few meters from the back.

Was it not proven that he did not pay the Hitler salute?

no In the second video, Oleg Psiuk can be seen only at the ninth second after he has already raised his hand:

So the scene of the alleged Hitler salute must have been filmed a few meters earlier, in a place where the headlights fall to the ground. So we looked at the rolling video frame by frame and discovered this:

A few meters before he was already raising his hand in salute, but he also did not show Hitler’s salute and extended his fingers, which is usually difficult to see due to the angle of the shot and the very short shot.

Closer look behind the scenes: Polish speaker

The original recording with Polish speaker Ida Novakoska is on youtube Watch the alleged salute to Hitler at 12:15. Here you can see that she posted her thumbs up:

No Hitler salute from the speaker

Here are three frames for recording:

Cheers, not Hitler's salute

Conclusion

The allegations are misleading. The videos from the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 don’t show Kalush Orchestra member Oleg Pciuk or Polish speaker Ida Novakovska performing the Nazi salute – which, if it did happen, would surely have caused a lot of media hype if it were real.
