Fake US envoy`s tweets spark ire in Russia

Last Updated: Monday, March 5, 2012 - 00:04

Some mischievous fakery on Twitter has
briefly caused a flare-up in already strained US-Russian

That tweet sparked indignant responses from, among
others, Russian presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich.

The real McFaul hastily issued messages distancing
himself from his disguised online doppelganger.

Dvorkovich tweeted his relief, but likely not before the
damage was done.

Putin supporters have routinely accused the US and McFaul
personally of being behind the unprecedented protests against
his rule.
