(As Reported By AP) while many well-known figures opened their wallets to make sizable contributions to relief efforts in Texas, the Russian president wasn’t one of them. A site make up to look like a news outlet claims Putin also called on “other individuals, organizations and also countries” to follow his lead in donating money. Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov tells the AP he’s not aware of the leader making any such donation.
But my crazy uncle who lives in one of those flyover states posted on Facebook, so it must be true...WRONG. For the record, if you ever see an article about an ex-KGB agent wanting to help America, it's FAKE NEWS.
