Russian state media outlet Sputnik News has mocked transgender troops in the US.
The US is set to start accepting transgender recruits into its armed forces this week, after the Trump administration lost a court battle over the issue.
The Trump administration had sought to block Obama-era guidance welcoming transgender troops from coming into force, but courts prevented officials from pushing back a January 1 implementation deadline.
State-controlled Russian media outlet Sputnik News jumped on the news with a headline mocking “Tranny Troops”.
