Disinfo: The West is spreading anti-Russian propaganda through a negative portrayal…


The West is spreading anti-Russian propaganda through a negative portrayal of Russia.


No evidence to date that professional Western journalists are instructed by their governments to report certain stories in support of government positions; the main pro-Kremlin journalists are instructed every week in the Kremlin (bit.ly/2dpfBpK), // No proof that professional journalists would take an active part in military operations - as those pro-Kremlin journalists who were awarded for "objective coverage in Crimea" (bit.ly/2cWWhB2), , or those awarded for covering the "Syrian war" (bit.ly/2cSwoDB), // No proof of an orchestrated disinformation campaign targeted at hundreds of millions of people in dozens of languages using hundreds of channels and the use of organised trolling.

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.
