Earlier this week, the official Facebook and Twitter accounts of the Russian Ministry of Defense said it had "irrefutable evidence" the US was aiding ISIS in Syria – and revealed four grainy photos apparently backing up its claims.
The images, apparently taken last week, were captioned as showing the American forces letting defeated foot soldiers of medieval terror-bastards Daesh freely leave a battlefield.
The US is simply using ISIS to further its own ends in the Middle East, and that The War Against Terror (TWAT) was clearly an attempt to justify Uncle Sam's actions around the world, the Kremlin roared.
"This is the irrefutable evidence that there is no struggle against terrorism as the whole global community believes," the Russians claimed.
"The US are actually covering the ISIS combat units to recover their combat capabilities, redeploy, and use them to promote the American interests in the Middle East."
However, as you'd expect with Russian tweets these days, there was something fishy about the images.
