Putin’s mysterious Facebook ‘superfans’ on a missionary work
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has gone widely condemned in many regions of the world. Still, a network of Facebook groups run by people with obscure motivations would like to change perceptions of the country’s leader.
Ten public pro-Putin Facebook groups, trumpeting the names like Vladimir Putin — Head of the Free World. The groups account for over 650,000 members. The content includes photos and eulogy messages from the Russian leader in several languages, including English, Russian, Farsi, Arabic and Khmer.
They’re not just popular; they’re very active.
Researchers have counted 16,500 publications this past month, receiving over 3.6 million interactions.
The overall purpose of these groups seems to be to promote Mr Putin as a hero who stands up to the west with overwhelming international support.
