More than $3bn spent by both main candidates and the lies published by them and their supporters had absolutely no effect on the electorate, but $100,000 of Russian ads totally swayed it.

You're ignoring two rather influential factors: swing districts, and the electoral college.

With proportional representation, those 6 million roubles would have gone nowhere indeed.
