The term ‘Russophobia’ is overused nowadays. What we see in the media is induced – and contagious! – Russomania.
It’s not ‘Russophobia‘ because it’s not ‘phobia’ per se (although this element can also be present). It’s a mania, obsession with a conspiracy theory that #TheRussiansDidIt*, based on a belief with no solid proof. Finally, it’s a meme.
*it — this ‘it’ can mean literally anything: Brexit, Trump’s victory, DNC ‘hack’, etc.
