|See this, photo is clear too:
The researchers following this believe the photo is fake/staged, as well as the name "Roman Obama". Both were fronts to protect the person who would eventually be "planted". The KEY was to feed the story to the AP, who would then publish it nationwide, and then eventually worldwide. It was meant to illicit a financial response from "supporters" for Obama and others trapped in deteriorating Russia.
BTW, notice the bottom headline on the Watertown version ABOVE (YES - it's very real):
New World Order Evolves as U.S. Falls BehindSorry, but ...
I saw that too!!! I did a big WTF too.

Abstract (Document Summary)
When Yadate Debrework came here six years ago to study international law, the world had barely heard of Mikhail Gorbachev, there was still a country called the Soviet Union, and the young Ethiopian had enough money to survive.
“I can’t even afford to go home,” said the 31-year-old graduate student. He will complete his studies at the Patrice Lumumba University this summer and literally does not have the fare back to Ethiopia.
Debrework and an estimated 84,000 other students from all over the world have found themselves abandoned as the economic collapse that accompanied the USSR’s demise left the government without money to support them.
