They would also blog in English, pretending to be Americans criticizing Obama over his Russia policy.
...
After a few weeks at 55 Savushkina, the point of his job, and the company, was clear to Vitaly: to encourage ill will towards Ukraine and the U.S. and to fire people up with anger.
Blah. So he wrote propaganda. Whatever.
The fake news machine was creative: memes were deployed as click bait, particularly ones about leaders who were hostile to Russia's campaign on Ukraine – Obama, German chancellor Angela Merkel and Ukrainian politicians were all targeted.
...
He fell into a routine, seeking out photos of Merkel and superimposing a Hitler moustache on her; placing Ukrainian male politicians' heads on women's bodies; making Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko look like a pig.
Fine with me. There is also an endless stream of propaganda demonizing Trump. It is sad and silly, but... whatever.

At the end of the day, did anyone really change their minds after reading this crap? Really?

This very story could be the product of a troll factory.

Hey, sounds like something I could've gotten behind, though I'm not sure Hillary needed help, the woman reptile is repulsive.

The US government sends thousands and thousands of soldiers all over the world to further its interests. But when the Russians write stories and buy ads, those are somehow a dangerous force. Damn, those Russians are smart and subtle!
