Fact Check: Ukrainian Defense Minister Did NOT Buy A Villa In Cannes For His Daughter Still For Sale

Did Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov purchase a villa for his daughter for 7 million euro? No, that's not true: At the time of writing this article the villa in Cannes mentioned in the claim was still for sale as seen on the Christie's International Real Estate website, for an asking price of 11.7 million Euros.

The story originated from a TikTok video posted on July 12 and reappeared in a video (archived here) where it was published by belvestnik on July 19, 2023. The text on the video (translated from Russian) reads:

Minister of Defense of Ukraine Reznikov thanks to the war bought his daughter Anastasiya Shteyngauz a villa in Cannes worth 7 million euro

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

No evidence has been provided that the house was bought by Reznikov or any of his family members. Anastasiya Shteyngauz in her Facebook post denied owning the luxury property in France.

The pictures of the Minister and his daughter in a wedding dress were taken in 2013 during Anastasiya's wedding in Portugal and have nothing to do with the alleged property purchase, the other photo shows the minister with his wife Yulia Zoriy
