"All this isn't true. This is all for show," – unknown people in Mariupol to Putin
As Russian President Vladimir Putin was talking with alleged locals in occupied Mariupol, someone shouted: "All this isn't true. This is all for show."
The video is available on the Kremlin's website. It was also shared by Meduza.
This happened when Putin stopped next to one of the houses built by the Russians in Mariupol.
The Kremlin's press office writes that "Putin talked with Mariupol residents in the Nevsky district."
During the conversation, someone shouted that everything happening was not true.
The excerpt made it into the video posted on the Kremlin's website, and was posted by many Telegram channels.
On the video recording of the meeting, someone is heard shouting at Putin and his entourage from the side: "It's all a lie! It's all for show!" After that, the Russian President's escort start looking around everywhere.
At that moment in the video filmed by Kremlin propagandists, Putin was asking the alleged "locals" if they liked everything and if they lived in that house.
Despite the shouts from the background, the "locals" were nodding affirmatively and agreed that they "live here."
As reported by IMI, on March 17, 2023, the Pre-Trial Chamber II of the International Criminal Court (“ICC” or “the Court”) issued warrants of arrest for President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, and the Commissioner for Children’s Rights in the Office of the President of the Russian Federation, Maria Lvova-Belova. They are accused of unlawful transfer of population (children) from occupied areas of Ukraine to the Russian Federation (under articles 8(2)(a)(vii) and 8(2)(b)(viii) of the Rome Statute).
