DISINFO: Most of Turkey is Russophobic except for the beach resorts


There’s Russophobia in Istanbul, Ankara and many other Turkish regions, except the beach resorts where the tourism industry is interested in the Russian money.


No evidence is given to support the claim, which is consistent with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about rampant Russophobia around the world. See a related disinformation case: Russophobia is thriving in today's world.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.
