All the answers cannot be considered complete without mentioning, as I think, a really very popular Russian meme - "how do you like that, Elon Musk?" !!! It has existed in Russia for a long time, but it became most widespread in 2018.
In the well-known game “PUBG” I very often began to hear “tri poliski tripa tri paloski, tri paloski adidas krassoski”
Well, and “CHIKE BRIKEYII V DAAAMKYYEEEEEEE”
Once I noticed a video called "Weird Russian singer", which now has 39 million views, where Vitas in some strange costume performs some ridiculous song.

A few years ago, the meme "Very bad music" was popular abroad, better known there as Dimitri finds out, which can be translated as "Dmitry suddenly finds out".

Typical example:
Some time ago this wonderful meme was popular abroad: kot blini. There is no deep meaning in it, but everyone really liked the expression on the cat's face, which led to the creation of many photojacks.
For example, in one word, but with political connotation:
Nyet (very strong denial or ban)
Tovarisch (we seem to be at the same time, but if something, then ...)
Perestroika (big changes)
Tzar (most important with unlimited powers)
But there are more authentic ones:
We will bury you ("We will bury you" by Khrushchev)
Doveryai no proveryai (with a light hand from Reagan)
Not from us, but in connection with us:
The Russians Are Coming ("Russians are coming" in the sense of an unjustified fear of attack)
From Russia With Love ("From Russia with love" in the sense of reconciliation with the enemy)
En by i Sibirien (Danish "town in Siberia" in the sense of the devil in the middle of nowhere)
