On the eve of the presidential elections in Russia, US media is attempting to split Russia and start a civil war

Summary of Disinformation

[During the presidential campaign in Russia, the US media like RFE/RL and Voice of America …] is agitating. On Russia’s sovereign territory and in the languages of the peoples of Russia. This is directed towards our people. They want to split us. They want to make us quarrel with each other. They want to involve us in a civil war.


Conspiracy theory, no evidence given.

RFE/RL journalists report the news in 20 countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established, providing uncensored news, responsible discussion, and open debate. pressroom.rferl.org/p/6091.html,

RFE/RL is registered with the IRS as a private, nonprofit Sec. 501(c)3 corporation, and is funded by a grant from the U.S. Congress through the Broadcasting Board of Governors as a private grantee. RFE/RL's editorial independence is protected by U.S. law.

Accuracy, balance, comprehensiveness, and objectivity are standards that are legally mandated in the VOA Charter. www.insidevoa.com/p/5831.html,
