The same trope has been used by Russian "communication" before: these are no longer "Ukrainian Nazis" but NATO soldiers, black and English speaking. Because "NATO soldiers" can only be Americans and black - casual racism is very much alive in Russia.

Official Russian cheer-leading cannot admit being possibly defeated by their "colonials"; nothing new: back in the 1950s, France couldn't admit being defeated by the Vietnamese and the Algerians; yet this is precisely what happened. Russia's colonial empire is following the same path.

"There are no Ukrainians left in some cities near Kharkiv. There are the British, some negroes, speaking English, commanding and reporting in the English language to some English commanders."

Police have arrested the man responsible for assaulting two Ukrainian women in France. While the man was initially believed to be Russian, a press release by the prosecutor in Nice on Wednesday has revealed the assailant is in fact a former Ukrainian soldier.
[...]
On Tuesday, French police arrested a man who had confessed to attacking the two women. He turned out to be a 33-year-old man who had arrived in France seven months ago after having previously served in the Ukrainian military. Police say the man admitted assaulting the women, but downplayed the severity of his attack and insisted he merely "slapped" them, as reported by the 20 Minutes news outlet. The Ukrainian also stated that he thought the women he attacked were Russian nationals because of their "Russian accent."
Slava Ukraini!
The Ukrainian embassy in France had assured, through a tweet, that it "cooperated with the French authorities for a rapid investigation", denouncing a "heinous incident".

«Je n'imaginais pas vivre ça en France» : Alina, réfugiée ukrainienne, victime d'une violente agression - Le Parisien.fr
Note du 16 septembre : Le procureur de Nice Xavier Bonhomme a indiqué dans un communiqué publié le 14 septembre que l'agresseur avait été interpellé et interrogé en garde à vue. Présenté au départ comme une Russe, il serait en réalité d'origine ukrainienne. L'homme a reconnu les violences en les minimisant et sera jugé le 17 novembre 2022 par le tribunal correctionnel pour des faits de « violence en raison de la race, de l'ethnie ou de la religion ». Il encourt jusqu'à trois ans de prison et 45 000 euros d'amende.
