Instagram has never had and most likely will not have a repost function, as in VK or Facebook. There are third-party applications, but it doesn’t look very nice. But there is a function to share in a story. This is an analogue of the repost button, only with the amendment that you share your favorite post not in your feed, but in History.
You can share your posts to Stories, your best friends list, or with someone individually by sending them to Direct. The post you decide to share can be expanded and styled using all the features of Instagram Stories.

Why can’t I share my post on Stories
If you are unable to share the publication in the story, then most likely the account where the post was posted has a ban on reposts. It could also be that this is a closed account.
You can share posts only from public accounts and those for whom this is not prohibited by the privacy settings.
If you do not want someone to share your posts in their stories and do not want to make a private account, then you can set the appropriate account settings.
Go to “Settings – Privacy” and select “History”.
In the window that opens, scroll down, and opposite the “Allow repost in History” field, turn the switch to OFF.
