A screenshot of CNN is going viral on the internet. The screenshot includes a picture of a man. His name is written in the screenshot is Ivan Kotchinski. Moreover, it is written that he is a former primary school teacher. He has been traveling throughout the city and taking care of unaccompanied minors. And, locals have started calling him “the Karkhiv Kid finder” for his seemingly supernatural ability to find young boys who don’t have anybody protecting them.

 

Similarly, many other social media users have posted this picture on their social media handle.

Fact Check

After doing keyword research, our team found that CNN never posted any such news. And, the screenshot is fake.

Moreover, the man in the screenshot is Vaush (real name is Ian Kochinski). He is an American Youtuber. He is a Libertarian socialist , Antifascist, and an average democracy enjoyer as described in his Twitter bio. Further, viewing his profile, we didn’t got any such video or claim of him being a Kid finder.

Conclusion

Hence, it is clear that the viral screenshot is  fake and the claim is false and baseless.

Claim Review: CNN Post A Story Of “The Karkhiv Kid Finder”
