The Kremlin is loving the Ferguson riots

Explosions, violence and social injustice: it’s not the Middle East, North Africa or eastern Ukraine, but Ferguson, Missouri — which is just how the Kremlin likes it. As the world watches the Midwestern US suburb descend into chaos, Russia’s powerful state media machine is exploiting the disorder to highlight what it’s long argued to be America’s penchant for double standards, especially over the crisis in Ukraine. Never mind deep-seated complexities

The Ferguson Protests are Actually About Russia (According to the RuNet)

Late on Monday, a St. Louis County grand jury made the decision not to indict Darren Wilson, a Ferguson, Missouri police officer in the August killing of teenager Michael Brown. The controversial decision and the unfolding situation in Ferguson generated much discussion on social media in the US—and, as it turns out, Russians had some opinions as well. The grand jury’s decision meant no charges would be currently brought against

Faked Video of Homosexuality Propaganda among Children on TV Channel Russia 1

On November 28, TV channel Russia 1  showed in its program “Special correspondent” a news item telling that homosexuality was allegedly being propagated in Europe among children, destroying their sense of gender stereotypes. In order to confirm their rightness the channel journalist among others videos showed a fragment of an amateur video. This video allegedly shows a boy who received naked men pictured on the wall in his bedroom as

War of words over Russian policy

There is ostensibly a ceasefire in Ukraine, but since the Minsk Accord was signed in September, the OSCE says it’s been breached some two and a half thousand times. There have been more than 4,000 deaths since April, according to the U.N.. As the deadly battle unfolds on the ground, a heated propaganda war is also being waged. Russia recently launched its “Sputnik” offensive, a new state-run international media outlet

Germany and the disinformation politics of the Ukraine crisis

Looking at both the historical and current pro-Putin segment of German public discussion, one can identify the target groups and methods of Russian disinformation politics, Andriy Portnov writes in his article for Open Democracy. In early March, in central Berlin, I came across a demonstration protesting against ‘Neo-Nazis on the Maidan.’ I tried to talk to the activists standing there, but they responded to all of my comments with just

Ukraine: From Propaganda to Reality

Since February, the world’s eyes have been on Ukraine as Ukrainians rebelled against rising authoritarianism in their own country and were met in return with a Russian invasion of Ukraine’s southern and eastern provinces. Yale University’s Timothy Snyder is the world’s leading historian of Eastern Europe. His series of articles in the New York Review of Books has been hailed as the definitive analysis of this crisis. Join him as

Russian Ambassador To Britain Welcomes New Propaganda Channel With Bizarre Rant

Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s ambassador to Britain, marked the launch of RT UK, the Kremlin’s British-specific propaganda channel, on Thursday with a lengthy and eccentric Twitter rant that saw him make extraneous references to Financial Times columnist Martin Wolf and novelist Virginia Woolf while claiming the network would “be as innovative as [the] Russian avant-garde.” He started by referring to the station’s launch party, which was disrupted by a fire alarm

Fake: Dmytro Yarosh came with a Machine Gun to the Verkhovna Rada Meeting

A screenshot of the Russian Channel One evening newscast appeared in the Network. In this newscast Russian journalists informed that the member of the Ukrainian Parliament Dmytro Yarosh had allegedly come to the first meeting of the Verkhovna Rada with a machine gun (at present moment there is no such screenshot in the news of the Channel One). Particularly, the Ukrainian site Censor.net writes about this, without a reference to

Soviet Propaganda Back in Play With Ferguson Coverage

Those relying on Russia’s state-run media right now are probably under the impression that all of America is up in flames and on the brink of imploding because the U.S. government is tyrannical and has been oppressing the underdogs for too long — and Ferguson is proof. In the Russian press, what started out as protests following Monday’s decision not to indict the white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in a small town in Missouri back in August has morphed into an existential crisis worthy of front-page stories
