However, the main argument that is currently used against LifeNews is not correct either.

How Russian TV propaganda is made

Federal television in Russia has long been suspected of propaganda. Four Russian TV producers share their stories of life behind the lens.

“Separatism” in Lviv – For Money and Russian Propaganda

Western leaders putting pressure on Ukraine to accede to Russian demands and offer the so-called ‘Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics’ autonomy would be well-advised to notice all the other parts of Ukraine which, according to Russian media, are also demanding self-rule.

The tabloid king who shapes how Russians see the world

Aram Gabrelyanov isn’t a man to mince words. And what this tabloid king really dislikes are “assholes” and “traitors” who challenge Russian President Vladimir Putin.
