On January 19, US President-elect Donald Trump and his family took part in festivities dedicated to his upcoming inauguration in Washington. According to eyewitnesses, the fireworks over the Lincoln Memorial formed the letters "USR" instead of "USA" in the sky.

"Trump unveils his plans for America. Welcome to the #USR," a poster tweeter. "Here we go again. It looks like Russia has hacked the fireworks at a concert before Trump's inauguration," another poster wrote.
"Donald Trump has found himself in an unpleasant situation. Some people believe that it was Russian hackers and Putin personally, who brought Trump to power in the USA.
