Russian President Vladimir Putin told the Russians false information, saying that in 2016 the whole world congratulated Hillary Clinton on her victory in the US elections, but it turned out that Donald Trump won. The presidential fake was aired on the Russia 1 TV channel.
“Last time everyone congratulated Ms. Clinton, but it turned out that Trump won,” – Putin replied to a journalist’s question about why the Kremlin did not react to the victory of Joseph Biden.
Oppositionist Alexei Navalny pointed out the falsity of the information online, who, in turn, reposted the post of the user with the nickname “Professor Preobrazhensky”.
“That’s real. Does anyone understand why the bunker grandfather is lying in every word? With or without reason. If only to lie “, – he commented on the historical fabrications of the master of the Kremlin.

In fairness, we note that Trump’s victory in 2016 was indeed unexpected. For example, the administration of the French president (then François Hollande was) prepared only one version of a congratulatory letter to the winner of the US elections – for Hillary Clinton, while the administration did not prepare congratulations for Clinton’s rival, Donald Trump.
