  1. Well that is fucking bizarre. I like how they gave the fake barmaids common Russian names like Tatiana and Darya.

  2. What to expect from a propaganda machine that didn’t even shy away from making up the crucification of a child by ukrainian soldiers?

  3. This is so bizarre. I get that RT lies for political reasons in other stories but here the goal is to fool Russians that Putin is actually loved and adorned abroad. It’s North Korean-level of craziness. The denial and cover-up lies after it’s been easily debunked is just hilarious.

  4. Whenever some russian calls you hamburger, call him putinburger back.

    thank you russia today for inventing an insult

  5. It looks so miserable and humiliating to invent such a story just to show that you are being loved by the West. And that’s from the country which claims to be “great”.

    Deep inside russians want to be loved and recognized by the West despite all their words about it being evil – otherwise they wouldn’t make such propaganda.

  6. This is hilarious 😂
    But there is more to it. They actually paid the waitress to say there was a PutinBurger. And the waitress was fired for that next day.
    I imagine her thinking WCGR if I say this burger was created specifically for Putin’s birthday ☺️

  7. Russians must be thinking that the whole world is desperately longing for Putin to liberate them from their evil democracies.

  8. Maybe the restaurant has so much burger diversity that they couldn’t remember that specific burger. RT is generally a very reliable source, second only to Facebook, so I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt.

  9. > When Kovalev called back, the same woman said the burger had been on sale in the morning and the man who had told him the Russian state media story was untrue was a “trainee”. She then hung up.

    So either it was true after all, or some reporter wanted to a prank story for a quick buck, which later got removed when found out. What is newsworthy about any of this? Who cares?

    Putin is by far the greatest statesman of our times and the rampant allergic sentiment in this sub against him is pathetically nauseating.

  10. Is fake news really that unexpected nowadays? It’s like people started to accept all this nonsense flying around the webs.

  11. This hole anti Russia hysteria is also in /r/Europe now? Let me tell you somthing people. Russia today is pro Russia and will gladly abandon Journalistic ethics to promote there agenda. Al Jazeera will do the same for there anti western propaganda. CNN will do the same for there anti trump / right agenda. They all do it they are all a bunch of Cunts. Stop pretending your site dousent do it and maybe we can de polarize a bit.

  12. > “They crave western attention and recognition so much that they’re prepared to resort to outright fakery to show that ordinary people in the west are in awe of the great Vladimir Vladimirovich. It’s just sad, really.”

    That’s so brutal lmao

  13. So wait a minute, actual employees of that restaurant are on record saying that there was such a burger, but it’s RT that invented it?

  14. Russians have little money but rarely run short of imagination.

    Putin’s speciality is judo… Never forget that, my mates.
