The Kremlin is notorious for using cut-outs like hacker collectives Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear, which are far enough away from the FSB so as to maintain plausible deniability in the event that an operation goes south.

As far as I’m concerned, this child should be the next leader of the Labour Party, also known as the Democrats’ similarly incompetent British siblings. Downton Abbey Donald Trump got dunked on by a kid who speaks slightly less coherent English than he does, and the world is now a better place than it was a few hours ago.
