The community “Typical Kyiv” was offered 3000 Russian Rubles to publish fake information for increasing the minimal income tax for physical entities from 15% to 20% due to increased defense expenses. The administrators of the page have declined the offer, explaining: “We do not publish fake news from the mentally ill.” A screenshot of the conversation is attached.

This news appears only on the pages of several internet communities in Vkontakte social network, and neither the Financial Ministry, neither the press mentions anything of the sort.
