Pay attention! The text of the news is written in a combination of Cyrillic and Latin letters (compare: instead of the Cyrillic “и” in the text the Latin “u” is used in the word «цuгaркaми»). In addition, they use zero “0” instead of the letter “o” («доп0могу»). The text itself is emotional. Such signs indicate that you are facing either a fake or a clickbait.
