Did Russian President Vladimir Putin just use his American dog to humiliate Japan?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Putin Humiliated Japan With His American Dog!
People are sharing a video clip of Russian President Vladimir Putin humiliating a Japanese delegation with his American dog, with this message :
Truth : Putin Did NOT Humiliated Japan With His American Dog!
This is yet another example of pro-Russian and anti-Japanese fake news by the Chinese wumao (50 Cent Army), and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : This Incident Took Place On 15 December 2016
This incident did not happen recently, but on 15 December 2016 – more than 5 years ago!
Fact #2 : They Were Japanese Journalists
The two men were not Japanese diplomats, as the fake story claimed. They were Japanese journalists from Nippon TV and the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper.
They were there to interview Putin, ahead of his official trip to Japan to meet with Japanese President Shinzo Abe.
Fact #3 : They Asked To See Putin’s Dog
Putin did not bring his dog to show the Japanese delegation that “present day Japan is like an American training dog”.
They actually asked to see his dog. Start watching at 2:33 in this RT video clip :
Fact #4 : Yume Is An Akita Gifted By Japan
Yume is an Akita that Japan gifted to Putin four years earlier, in gratitude for Russia’s help during the massive 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster.
That was why the Japanese journalists asked to see Yume. And that was why Putin showed Yume performing a series of tricks.
Putin certainly did not bring his dog to insinuate that “present day Japan is like an American training dog“.
Fact #5 : Akita Is A Japanese Dog Breed
Just to be clear – Yume is a Japanese Akita (or Akita-inu) from the Akita Prefecture, not an American training dog as the fake story claimed.
The Japanese journalist actually mentioned this at 3:02 in the video clip above :
Even though there is an American Akita strain, the Akita originates from the mountainous regions of northern Japan.
Fact #6 : They Were Caught Off-Guard
The Japanese journalists were not humiliated, just caught off-guard.
Even though they asked to see Yume, they did not expect Putin to bring her to the interview.
This was actually mentioned at 3:14 in the video clip above :
