Video of Putin praising Imran Khan for Russia visit is fake
Islamabad: A video of Russian President Vladimir Putin is being circulated online with incorrect English translation and subtitles, days after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan visited his country amid Ukraine crisis.
The Russian strongman didn’t say in his speech what captions used in the video say.
The fake captions read, “Whoever is saying that Russia is isolated in Ukraine is lying.This week I hosted the Prime Minister of Pakistan, a brave man. He resisted western pressure to accept my invitation to visit Russia.We discussed many areas of mutual interest including Afghanistan and trade cooperation. and soon, I will visit Pakistan to sign a major oil pipeline deal.
Meanwhile, Russian forces have killed hundreds of people since they invaded Ukraine. The United States and several European countries have imposed sanctions on Russia for imposing the war on Ukraine.
