Moscow - (AssoCIAted Messki): Hundreds of high profile Russian public figures are now claiming they may have been targets of character assassination attempts following the shocking headlines of events in London during the last week.
The latest pandemic outbreak is centred on the heart of Moscow's elite political grandees and is spearheaded by former Russian Federation Prime Monster Yegor Gaidar.
Gaidar has complained bitterly that he was 'sick to the stomach' in Dublin last week shortly after eating breakfast at his hotel and hearing the news that Vlad 'The Impaler' Putin had been smeared with toxic accusations by a turncoat ex-KGB colonel who died in entirely predictable circumstances after a Halloween night trick-or-treat mishap in London.
Aides immediately rushed Gaidar home to the Boris Yeltsin Memorial Clinic in Bloodyvostock where he was given copious transfusions of intravenous vodka to revive his flagging spirits.
But his complaints have spawned a near pandemic of similar accusations and triggered widespread rumours of compulsory state-vaccination treatment under recently authorised emergency measures brought in by the Putain administration.
