Disinfo: Putin congratulated Russia’s National team which won the championship EuroSkills

Summary

Putin congratulated Russia’s National team which won the championship EuroSkills, Europe’s largest contest of professional skills, with a total of 15,882 points which awarded them first place in the competition held in Sweden.

Disproof

Actually, Russia did not win. Russia sent the largest number of participants and therefore they got the highest number of total "skill points"-due to the number of participants. The article does not mention the fact that Austria won in terms of medals, Finland came in second and France secured the third place.
