Education expert Kamran Asadov released a video showing that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who once acted as an actor, took to the stage in front of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The video shows Putin sitting in the audience, watching Zelensky and laughing heartily.
Fakt Yoxla examined whether this claim was true.
The scene with Zelensky in this video was published in 2012 on the official YouTube channel of KVN. The video spread in the false claim is from the 35:26 of the video spread on the YouTube account of KVN.
The video with the footage of Vladimir Putin was cut from the KVN video broadcast on Channel 1 (2:05).
While watching the video, it becomes clear that Putin was not laughing at Zelensky's joke, but the vulgar joke made by the KVN actress about Stalin. These shots were filmed on the 50th anniversary of the Russian KVN.
Axar.az website shared a different image under the headline "Actor Zelensky's appearance in front of Putin spread". The video of Zelensky (1:13:08) on the official YouTube channel of KVN dates back to 2001, and the video of Putin (3:54) dates back to 2004.
Fakt Yoxla concludes that the videos of Zelensky's appearance in front of Putin were cut from KVN videos shot in different years. The allegations about these videos are False.
