Russia’s useful idiots are also proxies. In a bid to repeat 2016, the swing states will have third-party efforts as well as support for non-Democratic efforts.
In this case the self-proclaimed “environmentalist” declares that he supports the Green Party, but not really. Like greenwashing, it’s bait-and-switch.
Crooked Hillary Clinton just called the respected environmentalist and Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, a “Russian Asset.” They need a Green Party more than ever after looking at the Democrats disastrous environmental program!

Syncretic support from the Russians will appear in the strangest places, no different than the RWNJ efforts to support Trump’s activities. See all that troll-bot activity whose greatest coup was to actually get liberal and conservative online groups to actually confront each other in street demonstrations using Facebook in 2016.
Remember that Arms for Dirt and the Turkish-Syrian conflict is in a last instance, still about Russia, because it’s as always about money.
