Rencontre de Vladimir Poutine et du roi Salmane, à Riyad en 2019. © Aleksey Nikolskyi Meeting of Vladimir Putin and King Salman, in Riyadh in 2019. For several years, an excerpt from a conversation between the Saudi ruler and the Russian president circulating online. It is supposed to illustrate Putin's steadfastness in the face of Islam. But nothing guarantees the authenticity of this exchange (link posted on Facebook).

This is the story of a meeting between King Salman of Saudi Arabia and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The first asks the second if he can build a large mosque in Moscow. The Russian head of state accepts, but lays down a condition: a large Orthodox church must be built in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. The king refuses and the discussion ends there.

The French president spoke on Tuesday to his Russian counterpart and "wished for a strengthening of Franco-Russian cooperation in the fight against terrorism and illegal immigration", after the assassination of Samuel Paty, on October 16, by a young Russian man of Chechen origin.

Putin ’s supposedly transformative national spending projects worth an eye-watering 0bn have largely failed to materialise. His promises of economic modernisation and raised living standards must be set against a consecutive five-year fall in real wages and cuts to state pensions.

The gleeful greetings that Vladimir Putin extended to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has caught, not just the mainstream media, but also Donald Trump and the rest of the global geopolitical observers. It does not contain chocolate chips, you cannot eat it and there is no special hidden jar.

"This is what I call a head of state", enthusiastic many Internet users ( here , here or there for example) in posts, shared tens of thousands of times and illustrated by a portrait of Vladimir Putin.

This exchange comes up regularly on social networks, always for the benefit of Putin, because he has shown here firmness in the face of Islam, and in particular the funding of this cult by foreign powers.

Almost a year ago to the day, a tweet shared hundreds of times also reported. "This is the application of the principle of reciprocity", greeted a Parisian lawyer , himself retweeted by Christine Boutin.

A few months earlier, in March 2019 , it is no longer the King of Saudi Arabia who allegedly offered this barter to the tenant of the Kremlin, but the crown prince of the kingdom, Mohammed ben Salman .

There are two things to remember about this. First, the body of evidence strongly suggests that the virus has long since reached endemic status pretty much Second, since there is not a scrap of evidence that any restrictions slow or stop the virus, haven’t we been “letting the virus rip” anyway?

The first traces of this story date back to August 2017 , on Facebook pages of French-speaking supporters of Putin or on the site of the very right-wing Party of France.

History of 2008

Problem: there is no proof that this exchange took place, nor that the two heads of state thus cashed in places of worship to be built in each other.

In 2018, 20 Minutes already met the poison. In 2019 we dedicated a Detox. And more recently, it was the AFP Factuel that was also being verified, as rumors resurfaced in Belgium.

There is no trace of such an exchange in official records of previous meetings between Vladimir Putin and King Salman ( 2015 , 2017 ).

In return, several Russian Orthodox organizations ask to be able to build a church in the Saudi kingdom.
