Ukrainian combat birds/mosquitos/etc.

Russian propaganda about the full-scale invasion of Ukraine includes the conspiracy theory that Ukraine and its allies are using birds, mosquitos, and other animals as weapons. As Newsweek reports (linked below), Russian media claims that the U.S. has trained birds to convey bioweapons against Russia. Memes about these conspiracy theories tend to display their illogical nature by producing images in which birds, mosquitos, or snails are engaged in military activity.In April 2024 memes have added rodents to the list of combatants in Ukrainian animal warfare, after a Russian official blames them for the damage to the dam in Orsk which caused a disastrous flood.
