Russian trolls behind anti-5G campaign
New York Times claims it is because Vladimir Putin’s project is behind
Russian troll-farms are engineering the current upswing in the amount of anti-5G information which is suddenly appearing on social media.
For those who didn’t notice, an incredible amount of rubbish has appeared on social networking sites claim that 5G will kill you. Over the weekend a picture showed what was claimed to be a person in a radiation suit installing 5G equipment. The picture was of a painter in a chemical suit painting a cell station green to fit into the local environment. That was a little more benign than the claims that 5G killed birds in Brussels (when a 5G project was not happening).
The New York Times said such stories are starting to catch on.
The Russian network RT America aired the segment, titled “A Dangerous ‘Experiment on Humanity’”, in covering what its guest experts call 5G’s dire health threats.
However, RT America was identified as a principal meddler in the 2016 presidential election. Now, it is linking 5G signals to brain cancer, infertility, autism, heart tumours and Alzheimer’s disease.
The Times thinks that Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin is doing his best to stoke the fears of American viewers to get their government to ban 5G development.
He has no problems with the technology, seeing it as important for the same reasons as the US government
“We need to look forward. The challenge for the upcoming years is to organise universal access to high-speed internet, to start operation of the fifth-generation communication systems.”
New Knowledge, chief operating officer Ryan Fox claims that the Russians are using fake news as a economic warfare. His outfit tracks disinformation and thinks that Russia doesn’t have a good 5G play, so it tries to undermine and discredit Western efforts.
