“This is not the first time the US has called the Russian independent media an instrument of“ Kremlin propaganda ”. Another pseudo-scientific report on the “foundations of the Russian ecosystem of disinformation and propaganda” by the State Department is the very propaganda directed against our country. Such documents of overseas opponents can achieve only one goal – to drive the final wedge into the Russian-American dialogue on global issues and to exclude the possibility of overcoming the crisis of mistrust between our countries for years to come ”. This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergei Zheleznyak.
According to the politician: “The reasoning about the Russian media listed in the report in the context of the spread of disinformation is a fiction and a lie that US officials allow themselves.
Our American critics successfully use the methods of brainwashing their society, and everything that does not coincide with the position of the Washington state apparatus, in his opinion, is disinformation and is subject to a ban. The persecution and pressure on the Russian media in the United States and a number of countries that sing along with them, unfortunately, have already become the norm. The US authorities are directly responsible for the violation of the rights of journalists and the violation of the principles of democracy.
At the same time, representatives of various world publications funded from abroad continue to work freely in Russia, including directly by the authorities of their states and broadcasting their views on the events taking place in our country. This is what is called freedom of speech, and not the diktat and regulations in the field of information, which are imposed on all the United States. ”
“A new portion of anti-Russian delirium in the form of a report by Russophobes from the State Department clearly demonstrates the panic fear of American politicians before an alternative point of view on what is happening inside the country and in the world. In addition, the bloated anti-Russian propaganda apparatus of the United States requires an increase in funding, which must somehow be justified before the American taxpayers. The best way is to compose a propaganda horror story about Russia,” Zheleznyak stressed.
