Fake Putin was killed in the Kremlin

In the American segment of Facebook, a message was circulated, which noted: “Official statement - Putin was killed in the Kremlin! The President of Russia has been hospitalized!”. The message also contains a video criticizing Putin and Russia, which started the war in Ukraine. It's fake.

The case was investigated by the Politfact fact-checker. The post was flagged as part of Meta's efforts to combat fake news and misinformation. There is no confirmation of the death of the Russian dictator or reliable official reports. There have also been no recent reports of Putin being hospitalized.

Earlier we talked about the fact that at a meeting with the leaders of African countries, Putin presented a fake “agreement on the neutrality of Ukraine”.
