Russian fake news: 'Celebration' at Kyiv's nightclub following explosion in Makhachkala

Russian propaganda created a fake Instagram story about a 'fire party' at a Kyiv nightclub

Kremlin-funded media and z-telegram channels are spreading information that an entertainment venue in Kyiv is allegedly organizing a show called "Fiery Makhachkala."

As evidence, the propagandists published an alleged story from the official Instagram page of the Ukrainian institution.

This is a fake story. There are no such stories or posts on the official Instagram account of the Kyiv club. At the same time, there is a post saying that information about the "fire party" is false and provocative.

Earlier reports said that on August 14, an explosion at a fuel station in the Dagestan capital, Makhachkala, killed at least 30 people and left dozens injured.

Russian propaganda earlier launched fake news about bonfire marshmallow scented candles "House of Trade Unions."
