State-Run Russia News Outlet Tweets Model of ‘Nuclear Explosion Outside @WhiteHouse’

Sputnik is run by RIA Global, which is registered under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) as a “foreign agent [of Russia] with the U.S. Justice Department,” according to Reuters.

Just a week ago, Trump tweeted a ‘goop cop’ argument at Russia, asking them to join him in stopping “the arms race.”

Sputnik’s tweet would indicate Russia is not prepared to do so.
