How Russia ‘Weaponized’ 111 Times

Moon of Alabama

5 April, 2021


Last night Bryan MacDonald, an Irish journalist currently working for RT, picked up on a theme we previously noted here.

Bryan MacDonald @27khv – 19:21 UTC · Apr 4, 2021With the US/UK press in full Russia hysteria mode, right now, it’s time for a thread on things the Anglo-American media has accused Moscow of “weaponising.”
We shall start with Charlie Sheen.
Yes. Really. Not a joke.
Take a bow, @ak_mack & @ForeignPolicy

Bryan MacDonald’s thread is a good opportunity to update our list of all the issues, ideas and things Russia has weaponized.

Even while the list below now includes 111 entries – like robotic cockroaches, postmodernism and 14.legged squids – it is likely far from being complete.
