A satirical group calling themselves Proud Bear (@Pr0ud_Bear), complete with web site, bought and is displaying billboards claiming ‘Russian’ victory for playing a part in the Brexit vote.
From their website,
We are Proud Bear. We are collective of Russia GRU agents retrained in fields of digital telephony and Myspace.
They go on:
For years we help people of England make freedom from the European Union and democracy voting. Here is how:
- We spread the Brexit truth online through our Freedom Farms which make more than 150,000 fake accounts tweeting about #Brexit
- We made Brexit truth with 24-hour Really True (RT) news channel
- Our tweets reach more people than the official and unofficial Leave campaigns combined (Leave.EU & Vote Leave)
- So many more beyond 😉…
But why nobody talk of this winning?? Why are friends Boris and Nigel not shouting this from the tabletops?? Why are people of United England not clapping us with loudness??
We don’t know the reasons. So we are asking YOU – friends in Britain – to pay for THE BIGGEST SCREEN BILLBOARD IN SOON-TO-BE-NOT-EUROPE to celebrate our together success. Let’s make big conversation on this important winning.
When contacted by Reuters, the Russian Embassy did not respond.
