New Russian Internet Scheme Seeks to Spread Bad Coronavirus Advice

Putin wants Americans ill-informed…and just plain ill.

Russia will do whatever it takes to harm Americans and America, no matter how large or small the damage may be.

Vladimir Putin is a bloodthirsty tyrant in the making, whose grip on power and greed are coming together in ever-more dangerous ways as of late.

One of the last real threats to his world domination, however, is the United States.  That means that Putin is out to get America, and he’ll do whatever it takes to weaken the world’s most powerful nation.  That now includes spreading all sorts of bad information regarding COVID-19 in hopes of getting US citizens sick.

Two Russians who have held senior roles in Moscow’s military intelligence service known as the GRU have been identified as responsible for a disinformation effort meant to reach American and Western audiences, according to U.S. government officials. They were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday.

Russian officials on Wednesday rejected the accusations as “conspiracy theories” and a “persistent phobia.” One of the sites singled out by the U.S. posted a response denouncing as “categorically false” the American assertions that it was linked to the Russian military intelligence service or was involved in propaganda.

Putin had previously attempted to meddle in the 2016 US election as well, and fears are that this network of disinformation sites could be weaponized in a similar way as we continue to approach 2020’s crucial vote.
