Russia Engages US in InfoWar Using CNN Facebook Others
As the news unravel about Russia invading Ukraine, CNN reports the story, but also opens itself to comments from reading public. So often the reading public are the Russians themselves. In my investigation it became apparent that either intentionally or incidentally, these rogue individuals pose as Americans in an attempt to sway American public opinion. In the image shown, I've responded to one of such commentators in Russian (as I know the language) and this individual immediately responded in Russian language; although he had an English screen name, and was commenting in English. Please be aware of covert intentions of some of the commentators that you see on the Internet, and on Facebook (where I've also met American named profiles spreading Pro-Russian propaganda).
