US Analytical Center began recruiting journalists with anti-Russian views

The American Analytical Center of the Atlantic Council, which receives funding from the State Department and the Pentagon, as well as interacting with the Russian opposition, hired Elliot Higgins, the founder of Bellingcat, to publish critical materials about Moscow.

The Atlantic Council is one of the main ideological centers of the North Atlantic Alliance, receiving financial assistance from the US Department of State and the Department of Defense. The center specializes in analytics, based on which the US authorities make decisions on the introduction of sanctions packages and the expansion of NATO, writes Life.

US Analytical Center began recruiting journalists with anti-Russian views

Now the Atlantic Council has launched the Digital Forensic Research Lab project, which mainly consists of publishing critical materials about Russia's policy toward Ukraine and the Middle East, as part of countering the Russian “hybrid threat”. We are talking, in particular, about such reports as “Hiding in the Plain: Putin’s War in Ukraine”, “Destruction of Aleppo”, “Distract, deceive, destroy”.

This project also involved Elliot Higgins, creator of the portal of the same name of the journalistic community of Bellingcat. He became known in 2014 due to a series of materials on the use of weapons systems in Syria, as well as due to an investigation into the crash of Malaysian Boeing, in which the project accused the Russian military.

In addition to Higgins, the project team includes Naz Durakoglu, who previously worked as a senior advisor to the assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs at the State Department. In this position, she led strategic communications in Europe and Eurasia, and also helped implement US policy in these regions.

At the same time, the Atlantic Council is working closely with Russian opposition figures involved in advising the State Department on the eve of the preparation of a new sanctions package, Vzglyad reports.

    I recall an old joke.
    The candidate for Ku Klus Klan is being tested for moral qualities
    - To enter the Ku Klus Klan you must kill three blacks and one kitten.
    - Kitten for what?
    - You are accepted

    Atlantic Council works closely with Russian opposition leaders
    A scoundrel a scoundrel sees from afar. It has long been no secret to anyone that the so-called The "opposition" works closely with Russia's direct enemies.

    ... strange, but did they recruit journalists with pro-Russian views before? Actually, we must give them their due, that would not happen - they remain true to themselves ... we must finish with the swings.

    In fact, there is nothing to laugh here - the money from the US budget is starting to work against us in terms of information. I already notice a large number of sites concocted for a quick hand in Russian and watering the whole of Russia and the government. The goal in the USA is the same - to change power, to remove Putin V.V. and break up Russia into smaller states. Our task is to prevent this. But come on, you know what your child, 12 to 16 years old, will read in Russian. Always check the source, think more broadly and do not succumb to anger, temper, and always analyze. By the way, negative sites are easy to identify - they were organized from 2014 - 2015 - 2016 and all the information in them is negative about our homeland of Russia. And they will hit our youth - definitely.
