Russian propagandist media state that Vladimir Putin, the President of Russian Federation, called an 8-year-old girl from the temporarily occupied territory of Zaporizhzhia Oblast and asked to send him cucumbers, which the girl’s family grows on the territory seized by Russia.

Quote: “Did you have tea? Bagels? Cookies. Delicious? Well, thank God. Say hello to mom and dad. Will you send me… I know you grow cucumbers and tomatoes there. Will you send cucumbers? Yes. I will wait for New Year’s gifts. Okay?”
Details: It is unclear whether Putin actually called the child from the occupied territory. Russian media claim that Oleksandra Tytarenko, who “dreams of visiting Ded Moroz (Father Frost) and visiting Crimea”, spoke with him. The president of Russia allegedly chose her card from the “Wishing Tree”.
