State Department: Moscow sows discord and weakens Europe through propaganda

36
Advisor to the US Secretary of State for Political Planning Brian Hook accused Moscow of interfering in the affairs of European countries through targeted propaganda, reports RIA News.




As in the past, Russia plays on the field of propaganda and disinformation, bringing confusion in societies, electorates and institutions throughout Europe ... Russia undermines, sows discord, misinforms, corrupts and, eventually, weakens our confidence in our democratic institutions throughout Western the world. These actions are contrary to the 6 article of the Final Helsinki Act, which calls for non-interference in internal affairs,
said Hook, speaking in Washington.

Russia has repeatedly denied allegations of trying to influence the political situation in other countries by interfering with elections. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov called them "absolutely unfounded." In turn, Sergei Lavrov, speaking of assumptions about Russian interference in elections in the United States, France and Germany, said that there were no facts to confirm this.

      But blaming the blame on Russia is easier than admitting your own mistakes.

        and the State Department sows only "peace and happiness", although in fact the State Department sows death and blood all over the world, and even a little heroin in Afghanistan and cocaine in South America, scum double-faced, you'd better look in the mirror more often angry

      Advocacy in translation - "distribution" (of any idea). The first propagandists were clergy. No state exists without propaganda. And even more so one that has an effect on others. Therefore, Russia needs not just propaganda, but powerful propaganda. But we are far behind in this, even in the fact that we do not have our own ideology.

        The Great October Socialist Revolution (essentially a military coup) was carried out in Russia under the influence of the propaganda of German beer lovers - Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels ...

        Further - the Dulles plan began to work ... Which, in essence and as a whole, played a huge role in the subsequent collapse of the USSR ...
        The collapse of the USSR essentially occurred under the influence of propaganda for a better life in Western society over socialist life ...
        And, since the 90s, Western propaganda in Russia only gained strength ...
        And now, finally, at least, they create the appearance of counteraction to West-state propaganda ... And then - more in words than in reality ...

          I agree with your general message, but not with the first phrase. The revolution was essentially a revolution, but a military coup is just a method, an instrument stop by whom this revolution happened

          Well, if only in words, the State Department would not have adopted a resolution on the registration of RT and Sputnik as a foreign agent. So our media got to the liver, and this can’t be called just pretending. And, after all, they didn’t try to reach these stinky cookies - they only presented objective information about events, but what effect !!!

      Russia plays on the field of propaganda and misinformation, bringing confusion to societies, electorates and institutions throughout Europe ... Russia undermines, spreads discord, misinforms, corrupts and, in the end, weakens our confidence in our democratic institutions throughout the Western world.

      That's strange, it sounds like a balm for the soul, even pride takes for our homeland. Keep it up!

    I hope that the chatter of the EU and the US will finally allow Russia to pass tough laws that completely block the financing and propaganda channels of the West, constant intervention and support of liberals and the opposition, and ensure control over NGOs and the activities of walkers from Europe. They would have eliminated all these Echoes, Rain, and similar media as frankly hostile! In the United States, bastards, such as Navalny, would be condemned for constant lies, or simply, according to the Clinton family’s custom, they would bang. The law on slander, on the attempt of state does not work in the Russian Federation coup and change of state. system. It's a pity. It's time to put things in order.

      To liquidate all these "Echoes" and the like cannot be by any means! The enemy must know what is called in person! And there you read the comments and it becomes very clear what kind of fruit this commentator is. Such pearls come across that you do not know - which tablets to prescribe to a person or immediately hang a stool in your head angry

    Moscow is simply broadcasting the TRUTH, which it can back up with arguments. The mattresses in this regard are full of “seams” - no truth, no arguments, only concerns.

    And again I will focus on one aspect. In an information war (which is often a preparation for an ordinary war) sometimes it doesn’t matter what it says. The principle of the transition of quantity into quality is used, before the appearance of a clear, at the level of reaction reflex - Russia is to blame for ALL the troubles of mankind. And when this effect is mainly achieved, the transition to the next stage is possible, not discrediting our state, but destroying it in one way or another, not necessarily military.

    Well, Russia at least territorially occupies a third of Europe; here our interests cannot fail. And the United States, then why does it sit on a strange anthill with an ass?
