On keyword research, we found no such news. George Soros is a Hungarian-born American billionaire investor and philanthropist. And, Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a Ukrainian politician and former actor and comedian. He is currently serving as the sixth president of Ukraine. There is no evidence that Soros and Zelenskyy are cousins.
Therefore, on our fact check analysis we found that there are no such statements released by the Pentagon. And, there is no evidence of both of them being cousins. Hence, the viral news is false and baseless.
