I know the "Free Britney" movement is gaining steam, but I never expected Russian babushkas to be part of the whole thing
· Jun 29, 2021 · NottheBee.com

Who would have guessed that a bunch of pro-Putin Russian grandmas would demand Britney Spears be released from the conservatorship drama that has launched back into public discourse over the past week?

Seriously, did anyone have "Russian babushkas defending Britney" on their 2021 Bingo card??

Apparently, these grandmas often go viral in Russia for defending totalitarian Vladimir Putin against his political foes.

If you could have predicted an alliance between Russian senior citizens who grew up under the USSR and Britney fans in the U.S., you probably should go play the lottery.

What a wild time to be alive!
