On February 14th, 2023, the anonymous pro-governmental Facebook page and account “Terenti Gldaneli” published a video with the following description: “Zelenskyy is already being laughed at even in the US.” In the video, an English-speaking TV host says, “Speaking of pets, we may all be impatient, but there is one annoyed Ohio pup that’s getting national attention.” After the introduction, the shot of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, taken during his visit to Great Britain, appears in the video, where he begins his speech. In the next shot, two TV anchors start laughing, and one of them says: “This is why we can’t show pet stories.” The video was also published by the Russian propaganda outlets and

The video is altered. In fact, it was filmed in 2017, and instead of the footage of Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the anchors of the TV company KCCI show a dog from Ohio.

The original version of the circulated video can be found on the Internet since 2017.

In the mentioned segment of the program, the anchors of the Ohio state television station KCCI talk about a dog that honked at its owner from the car. The video of a dog from Ohio went viral on social media in February 2017.

TV anchor Laura Terrell makes an introduction about this very video, and after showing it, she laughs about it with her colleague Todd Magel.

It should be noted that the video, which was published by Terenti Gldaneli with Georgian subtitles, was disseminated on Twitter earlier.

However, in the comments section of the tweet, the author himself uploaded the actual video.

The Facebook accounts of “Terenti Gldaneli” are systematically involved in campaigns against the US ambassador, the West, Ukraine and the opposition. These accounts have disseminated a number of fake news and video fabrications in the past as well. For more details, see:
