The dangers of the famous spinning tops had already been a feat to Russians, the famous toy was created by Americans in order to push the opponents of the Russian regime to commit acts against the president of the Russian Federation.
Originally designed to soothe the anxiety of children with autism, the hand spinner became the must-have of recreational classes at the end of the school year. But it seems to provoke the opposite effect in the journalists of the Russian State television and is convinced that the global spread of this gadget contains dark designs. For example, It will encourage youth to commit acts of opposition against Vladimir Putin.
The small device “makes a person vulnerable to manipulation,” said presenter Alexey Kazakov in one of the many programs dedicated to the dangers of hand spinners on the government-controlled Rossiya 24 continuous news channel. Since last month, this seemingly harmless toy intrigues the Russian experts who suspect it of being a tool of instrumentalization of opponents of the regime manufactured by the United States.
“It is probably not a coincidence that they started selling them at events organized by opposition to the system,” Alexey Kazakov said on July 13, before explaining that the object could be used to “Zombify” people, annihilate critical thinking and experience a sort of “hypnosis”.
To support this thesis, the show set out the report of a psychologist named Svetlana Filatova. According to her, hand spinners can develop the address of young children but they “sleep” the mind, and the concentration they arouse “takes you into another world”.
used in another newscast on June 19, during which Alexey Kazakov reported that “they had often been seen in the hands of opposition members of the regime.” He also noticed that Russian schoolchildren and pupils continued to use them massively, while the trend was declining in the West.
“As you can see, the entries are only in English, while there is not a word in Russian,” co-host Nikolay Sokolov said, waving a hand spinner. “Why is it so popular in Russian. Who could promote it at this point? ”
Independent journalist Alexey Kovalev, the first man, was at that time, to point out the absurdity of this complicated theory and to turn it into derision on social networks.
