That contained all factual stuff, but there is a bigger picture that Russia can’t get past no matter how hard it tries.
The people of the world on the whole know the Russian state lie and cheat. The Russian population know the Russian state lie and cheat.
While an average Russian may feel other governments may be unfairly placing sanctions on average Russian citizens, they also see first hand that their own government is corrupt and untrustworthy.
The irony to the above being that the more money or time the Russian state put into disinformation the more their own population fail to believe them.
The point in the article about Putin denying Thursday is Thursday is not a surprise in any way to the average Russian, they wouldn’t believe him but are simply resigned to the fact he tells lies.
The multiple made up scenarios the Russian trolls post in this thread make no difference to us whatsoever.
While we can laugh at them, or correct their lies we do of course continue to chat in an adult manner away from the open thread.
