Russian Media Turns to QAnon Conspiracies to Help Re-Elect Trump

To date, Trump has reportedly amplified accounts promoting QAnon conspiracy theories at least 216 times.

On Sunday, the White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told Chris Wallace that he had to Google QAnon to find out what it is, as opposed to requesting an FBI briefing. Unlike him, the Russians are doing their homework. Outlandish QAnon conspiracies are translated into Russian and thoroughly studied by pro-Kremlin propagandists.

Concerned by the negative impact a Biden-Harris presidency would have on the Kremlin’s geopolitical gains under Trump, the Russian state media is test-driving conspiracy theories targeting vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris. Russian media outlets reluctantly admit that Harris is an exemplary wife and mother, with an impressive career and impeccable credentials, but Russian propagandists have found a few wild QAnon theories to throw at her.
