Real Russians of Miami-Dade County evade law on two continents

Россия в войне. Елизавета Александрова-Зорина – о битвах “своих”

Источник: Елизавета Александрова-Зорина, для Радио Свобода Отряды “добровольцев” и казаков приходят на митинги, чтобы избивать протестующих, пока полицейские стоят в стороне. Активисты патриотических движений борются с “пятой колонной”, составляют списки “национал-предателей”, нападают на оппозиционеров. Представители власти только разводят руками: а мы-то здесь при чем? Религиозные фанатики срывают концерты, лекции и выставки, по их мнению, не соответствующие традиционным ценностям. Церковники вздымают глаза к небу: на все воля Божья. Каждый день в новостях

How France beat back information manipulation (and how other democracies might do the same)

By Christine Schmidt, for NiemanLab “French success resulted from a combination of structural factors, luck, as well as the effective anticipation and reaction of the Macron campaign staff, the government, and civil society, especially the mainstream media.” If France could stop misinformation, could the U.S.?

By EU vs Disinfo What do you do when one of your heaviest disinformation attacks backfires? You send out way more disinformation attacks and hope that they will silence the outrage about such obvious attempts to deceive and mislead the international community. We have seen exactly this pattern during the last week in Russia’s disinformation ecosystem. The pro-Kremlin outlets were still hectically spreading all kinds of contradictory stories about the Skripal case

Fake: Russian Language Banned in Lviv

Lviv bans the Russian language hailed scores of Russian propagandist media last week. Lviv bans singing Russian songs wailed , while other publications warned that Ukrainian nationalists were oppressing Russian speakers, putting the local population in danger and fostering Ukrainian separatism that is depriving swathes of society from speaking Russian.

Would Visiting the U.S. Help Vladimir Putin ‘Humanize’ His Adversary? Fact: Putin Visited Nine Times

By Polygraph John Wight RT Contributor “Indeed it is arguable that without his prolonged visit to the U.S. in 1959, Khrushchev may not have been so willing to accommodate JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis three years later in 1962 – the reason being that only in visiting the country or countries of his adversaries is a leader able to humanize it beyond the realm of geopolitical differences.
