I would take it with a grain of salt.
There was also a recent rumor of the government hiring russian security forces, but it was false.
I also have heard people say that there are 20,000 russian troops and vehicles on the MS coast, but that's false. I know, cause I live there X3
What it was, during the Cold War, a local scrap yard bought some old soviet vehicles for scrap. Many peeps thought the ruskies were invadin, and even Timothy mcveigh came to investigate, when he was on his paranoid streak. They were eventually sold for scrap.
We don't live in the Cold War, peeps. Russia isn't after us, we ain't after them.
