It was interesting to see how fast it spread even early on.
I saw it spreading as well. With the only real source a crappy translation, and knowing how Russian is like Finnish, in that direct translations are not really possible (unlike Germanic language) I decided to start poking around for more solid conformation.
The tiniest amount of due diligence would have saved people from focusing their energy on hoax and distraction, it took me all of 15 min to ascertain the info was horse hockey.
Well good work.

They often say in research there is no money in checking others work, so this sort of thing happens even in the medical and psychiatric fields, was one of the reasons I did not pursue an advanced degree in psychology, skyscrapers built on weak foundations.
We need more of this from the community rather than being passive absorbers of others work.
I understand haste though, often things of merit are lost so fast with information coverups we really do have to occasionally get a look a things quickly.
