it would be understandable, if you, by being marginals, or opposition in your countries, who knows how government controls media, and does it’s propaganda, feel somehow close, have some solidarity with the same people in Russia. To know what marginals and non government controlled media writes. To know what people think.

So the “russia today” which is sometimes shared here expresses the point of view of the Russian government. Which shouldn’t be taken as truth only because you dislike your own government. Or if you dislike USA.

That is why I would like to present to you the site, which describes itself as “the real russia today”: https://meduza.io/en

formerly, lenta dot ru, which wasn’t opposition or pro west news site, was taken under control of the state (as most other media) and some of it’s former employees formed meduza.io site. i think you have to know this side. it’s real in terms that it’s not a state propaganda. it’s one of the remaining free media. very weak, alas.

You may dislike it, because you won’t understand many texts. It’s targeted the internal reader, while government RT targets you, uses the language you can understand, and knows which strings to pull to manipulate it’s market. (:

Putin’s nationalist propaganda resembles the US propaganda used to convince Americans to have faith that the US is the “good guy” in every war, in disregard of all truth. However, Putin’s version is even stronger. https://stallman.org/archives/2014-jul-oct.html#18_September_2014_%28Russian_writer_Mikhail_Shishkin%29

nice one

but let’s remember, that in the West you still have relatively strong freedom of speech, while in some countries, like Russia and others, with corrupted dictator regimes, all mass media is controlled by government, and they can manipulate their people better. Also, they don’t do posters like this.
