Dedicated Russian thread

Heard today that Russian propaganda is being "seeded" in the West which suggests that users of the Oxford vaccine will turn in to monkeys. As ridiculous as it sounds, the idea is to sow the seeds of doubt. Russia has huge hopes that their own vaccine will be a significant money earner. How much of it is their own research is a matter of debate. There were attempts to hack Western CV19 research projects.

Thanks for that. Trenin’s assessment and views fit neatly alongside the “Muscovite Mindset” which I expand on and the “Moscow Rules” as outlined in Kier Giles’ excellent book on Russia.

Dmitri Trenin is nowadays a reliable barometer of leadership views. He used to be quite independent of thought (the more intellectual kind of well-travelled former GRU officer) but starting in about 2010-12, like many others, he either was had a word with or saw for himself which way the wind was blowing and wound his neck in, radically changing his publicly stated views on life, the universe and everything.

Which is only really a problem when he is presented, as often happens, as an "independent" analyst in Moscow because he's wearing a Carnegie badge.
