Fact Check: Russia Does NOT Give $30k to Arab Guys For Marrying Russian Girls No Such Claim

Does Russia give $30,000 to Arabs for marrying Russian girls? No, that's not true. There is no such decision by the Russian government, and the Russian Embassy in Jordan has debunked the claim.

The claim appeared in a video (archived here) where it was published on TikTok by @y_.2n on May 22, 2023, under the title "Putin signs on to the decision that every Arab who marries a Russian girl will receive $30,000, citizenship and insurance."

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

Lead Stories searched the websites of the Russian government and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, but did not find any mention of the claim.

Regarding the claim that Russia gives $30,000, Russian citizenship and insurance to any Arab who marries a Russian girl, Fatabyyano's team of journalists contacted the Russian Embassy in Jordan to get an official response. "This is fake news and it is not true at all," the Russian Embassy told reporters.
