Fact Check: China Did NOT Create A Musical Fountain Show Tribute To Russian Soldiers Russian Show

Did a Chinese city bordering the Russian city of Blagoveshchensk create a water and light show projecting the portrait of the Russian soldiers in order to pay tribute them? No, that's not true: The video was recorded in the Russian city of Derbent.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here) where it was published by mnbelarus on August 24, 2023. The video was widely spread by the Russian TikTok accounts as well (here, here and here). The text on the video (translated from Russian into English by Lead Stories staff) reads:

The Amur River in Blagoveshchensk, this is the border with China. And this is what China did on its side ♥️🙏🙏🙏♥️ 🇷🇺

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

A patriotic event on Victory Day eve, May 8, 2023 took place in Derbent's Nizami Ganjavi Park, in the Russian Republic of Dagestan.

The largest multimedia fountain in Russia projected the photographs commemorating the participants in the special military operation in Ukraine to the song "Vstanem" by Russian singer Shaman.
