The Brett Kavanaugh scandal is making headlines across the world after the massive movement that it has created in which women are standing up to say #BelieveWomen. For some reason, unknown to anyone who doesn’t have their head tightly wedged between the president’s cheeks, the Kremlin has decided to weigh in on the United States Supreme Court debate over whether or not Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed to a lifetime appointment despite multiple allegations of sexual assault against him.
According to The Daily Beast:
“The Kremlin’s support of Donald Trump’s objectives, devoid of traditional U.S. values, has spilled out into the issues typically outside of Russia’s purview, such as Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.”
“Trump’s disregard for human rights and values is balm to the Kremlin’s sanction-wounded heart, which is why the Russians were quick to jump on the Kavanaugh wagon. Russian state media is supporting Trump’s Kavanaugh nomination both in its domestic publications, as well as those aimed at the English-speaking audiences.”

The Daily Beast explains:
“The message that women’s rights are nothing more than the ploy of wicked feminists resonates with the Russian government. Vitaly Milonov, an ultra-conservative lawmaker from Putin’s United Russia party, openly argues on Russian state television that feminists aren’t even people, but mere “monkeys” and “witches.” He calls for feminists to be subjected to forced psychiatric treatment or imprisonment. “Lock her up” has a greatly expanded meaning in Russia.”
“Kavanaugh says: ‘The Swetnick thing is a joke, that’s a farce.’ Kiselyov echoes: ‘The case against Brett Kavanaugh sounds like a joke.'”
Reports show that, while Russia can say one thing regarding the relations between them and the United States, they also turn around and say the exact opposite of what they had reported. For instance, this Daily Beast report states:
“Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov recently exclaimed that the relations between the United States and Russia are “the worst in history.” At the same time, Lavrov emphasized that the relationship between the President of the United States Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin is “very constructive” and “positive.” Pro-Kremlin experts and political strategists on Russian state TV explain that their support of Trump is based on the convergence of interests.”
