Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul has accidentally revealed that riots in Iran are a repetition for the events “scheduled” by the US leadrship in Russia ahead of the 2018 presidential election.
McFaul posted on Facebook a post in Russian saying: “300 thousands of Iranians are going to hang local security services servicemen. What you did for Russia?” McFaul attached to the post an alleged video of protests in Iran.
Oh but you did post it and the caption called for the murder of Russian officials, so shame on YOU; unless you want to publicly apologize – it’s the only way. pic.twitter.com/EKbyv90xQ0

However, social media users found that the video posted by McFaul showed the 2011 protests in Bahrain. Furthermore, people on the video carry flags of Bahrain. The US official was forced to admit his “mistake”.
I apologize. I misread the caption, & then deleted after realizing my mistake (My Russian is rusty.) https://t.co/3xfjEFLy5X
