A video showing Bolsonaristas gathered in a shopping center is circulating on social media with claims that it was taken in Australia this Sunday the 2nd, which is not true. The footage was taken at Diamond Mall in Belo Horizonte (MG) on October 5, 2018, two days before the first round of elections in the year when Bolsonaro was a candidate for the PSL.
Until the release of this check, there was no official information on the election results of Brazilians abroad.
Other publications reviewed by Aos Fatos are misleading when they claim that the President won the New Zealand election.
