They even invented a conspiracy theory. You probably remember that Russia had some super secret hypersonic weapon it was causing brain damage in American diplomats that no one had ever heard of before, and it turned out to be debunked even by the CIA. Why Russia blow up their own pipeline which gives them huge amounts of leverage?
