Russiophobes have dominated the American media narrative for a nauseatingly long time now, as we all know. The amazing thing still lies in the persistence of a false narrative generated by a country that is actually one of the greatest creators of false narratives in our times. And that is not the Soviet Union, it is our dear United States of America. However, at the same time, we have seen signs from both home and abroad that the Great Ride of Russian Hysteria is running out.
Former CIA agent John Sipher is the latest high-profile victim of Russophobia, but social media of all sources began to dispense the cure on March 6th. One can believe the man has gotten a bit of a rude awakening…
How can one not be a Russophobe? Russia soft power is political warfare. Hard power is invading neighbors, hiding the death of civilians with chemical weapons and threatening with doomsday nuclear weapons. And they kill the opposition at home. Name something positive.

To which there were quite an interesting range of positive replies. Russia Today (RT.com) picked up this piece on their site and we at RussiaFeed would like to add more positive responses about Russia. Enjoy!
Yeah, let's hate the people because of their government! It's totally reasonable!
This is xenophobia. Delete this tweet.

How do you sleep at night John? Your agency armed and trained (till this day) people that did 9/11 and that now behead and cage people in the eastern Ghouta. Don’t lecture Russia for trying to clean up your mess. I won’t start about all that coke that you brought into America…

Not a fan of Russia but my favorite composers were Russian: Prokofiev, Stravinsky and Shostakovich.
