Can you make the West hear Russia?

87
The other day, Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke to Russian diplomats, stating that we need to be more active in creating a positive image of Russia. The President emphasized that the image of Russia abroad today is formed far from Russia itself, and therefore very often this image has a distorted look.

It’s hard to argue with that, because often “demonization” of Russia reaches such extremes that it’s hard to imagine where the authors of the “demonization” strategy draw their inspiration from, if I may say so. All this is more like a big political "black" PR, which aims to reset Russia from competitive positions in the world. Western, and not only, by the way, the Western press, uses its large-scale media resources to form an idea among foreign citizens about Russia just as a country that is struggling to withstand global development, and which puts a spoke in the wheels of the “great” democratization. while remaining on guard of authoritarian values. For obvious reasons, after a series of reports of “interested” media, a foreign citizen forms something similar to the original fear of our country, the effect of neglecting our values ​​with you works, because these values ​​are exposed as something negative and unworthy of the right to be called values ​​in general. The West is more willing to accept reports from the Georgian, Qatari, Saudi, Baltic, Western-Ukrainian mass media, because it meets its (Western) interests than it will get acquainted with information reflecting the real state of affairs in the Russian Federation and its relation to certain global processes.

One of the most vivid examples is the total information pressure on Russia of the August 2008 model of the year, when the voices of many Russian media who tried to convey to the readers, viewers, listeners and users of the Network the real facts about what happened then in South Ossetia simply drowned in sweeping everything in its path misinformation stuffing. Euronews, CNN, the Air Force simply crushed Russia with its mass, creating a general impression of Moscow as the capital of the aggressor state. And then this maxim had to be long and stubbornly refuted, and, it must be said, again, not without the help of foreign media, mostly French.

And this once again proves only that Russia today does not really have information tools that would be at least somewhat close in strength and effect to many of the foreign media. And this is all the more strange, because the media field in our country is quite active, and to call this field low-yielding language does not even turn. So why, then, will the world be more willing to believe in the plots and analysis of the situation in Russia from the Qatari Al-Jazeera channel, rather than trying to learn about the situation in Russia, as they say, from first hand.

There may be several answers to this question. First, not all information agencies, television channels and websites of Russia create their own versions in foreign languages. And secondly, the stereotype that freedom of speech has been completely and irrevocably killed in Russia remains extremely tenacious in a number of foreign countries.

It turns out that Russia can solve the problem of purposefully distorted image in the following way: to actively develop multilingual information services, which would broadcast on the position of Russia for foreign citizens wishing to keep abreast of events. There is no doubt that the foreign viewer-reader-listener-user would not be against the possibility of perceiving information about the Russian Federation not through the prism of the opinions of Al-Jazeera journalists, but first-hand.

However, our readers can say that now there are Russian news agencies that broadcast, for example, in English to a foreign audience. What prevents them from becoming that “soft power” that talks about Russia to foreign citizens. But upon closer examination, it turns out that a very impressive percentage of these agencies suspiciously offer the world a point of view that, to put it mildly, does not always fit into the real situation in Russia. If we are talking about opposition rallies in Moscow, it covers exclusively how the riot police behave, hindering the holding of marches, and in a strange way, shots are excluded when the same riot police themselves fall prey to overly raging oppositionists. Supplies weapons to Syria are exposed only as assistance to Bashar Assad in the administration of his “bloody policy”, but the fact that the supply of weapons to the camp of terrorists posing as Syrian oppositionists is “sinning” on the American side is almost impossible to hear in this news.

It turns out that Russia has a foreign voice, but only this voice is often consonant with the reports of CNN, the BBC or Al-Jazeera. The rectification of the situation lies in the plane of the popularization of Russian information media resources by all available and legitimate means. This task remains extremely difficult, but the effect of its solution will be more than significant. And if you don’t bother with this now, in a few years the Russian media will finally be on the margins of the world media space.

      Do you think that the war in 2008 with the dwarf country is a reason for pride? Or is it a pleasure when you step on a small ant? Or have you forgotten that this dwarf country is the country of the former union, which at one time fought against fascism with your grandfather? Or forgot that they are Christians and not only Slavs?

      I would plus your post if, instead of the August war, Russia would enter Syria and save the local people and ally.
      This would be a step, this would be the slogan, Fear the Russians are coming.

      And so, I think your post is low!

        The war in Georgia is a small episode of the global confrontation, and what we piled on Georgians and their sponsors in 2008 is a great success, which seriously positively affected the situation not only in the Caucasus, but also in Ukraine and so on. So you can safely put a plus sign. And about Russia, the comrade also correctly noted. If there is no Russia, all republics and not only the former USSR will find themselves in deep F, and Russia will rely solely on the titular nation - the Russians. So Russia in a collective, deeply national (read collegiality) meaning is something without which there will be no future. So, if someone doesn’t know how to be friends, let them be afraid - And the BBC, CNN to help them

          And here you are clearly scrambling to achieve something by cunning, what other brains are needed. Brains are not needed to fight, not sparing human resources, as was often the case in Russia.

          It’s not entirely correct to attribute cunning to Jews. Any people can be cunning and savvy. It’s just that we have to use this trick more often than others, because life makes us. Therefore, this is the impression.

                To call the event as a whole does not yet give a concrete example with irrefutable facts, when people were sent as they say for slaughter, like cattle, intentionally, without giving them the means to achieve their goal, so you did not answer my question!
                I think the statistics on the losses of these events will not be in your favor. For example, I can cite the findings of a study by Western military analysts regarding the Finnish war, namely the capture of the Manerheim line by the Soviet army, modeled by a computer program. So, to achieve the above goals, the program did not offer anything else but to deliver a nuclear strike on this fortified area !!!

    It is too difficult in a world where one does not particularly care about one's neighbor to try to convey the truth. Sometimes people themselves do not want to listen to it, and a lie is often much more pleasant and interesting. There’s nothing to say about the Western world, today’s main day, and what’s in Russia, they perceive what they say in the news and believe in them. Without even trying to peer into other sources, the ones who need the truth will not reach the rest. The world of money, animal pleasure will not listen to anyone!

      But you can and even need to sue. But the trouble is, where will the trials take place? In the courts of the country where the media is registered? or in international arbitration, which is also located in the west and the "Western" people sit there. The results of such hearings in most cases seem a foregone conclusion. But you still need to sue

          In most legal systems and in most cases, claims are heard by the court at the location of the defendant. Western channels and media operate on the territory of the Russian Federation either through their representative offices or through local companies that have bought a broadcast license, for example, the BBC in the Russian Federation. If the media works through a representative office, you can judge, but only for the reports of the correspondents of this representative office, otherwise the representative office will say that they have been sent reports from the "center", and questions to them. Even if we condemn the representation, again the pressure from the Russian government on the free truth-loving media in order to hide the truth.
          And if we are only talking about relaying without creating a representative office of the Russian Federation, there is only international arbitration. But still sue

      In the USA, there is a corresponding legislative basis for this. Referring to the democratically striking Wikipedia yesterday: “In 1940, the Smith Act was passed, defining as a criminal anyone who:
      “Knowingly or willfully defends, incites, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or correctness of overthrowing the government of the United States or the governments of any states, territories, counties, or possessions by force or by means of violence, or the organization of any association that it teaches, consults or incites to overthrow, or anyone who has become a member or associated with any such associations ”[2]. The law was used mainly for political persecution of Trotskyists and Communists. These persecutions ceased in 1957 following decisions of the Supreme Court, which declared them unconstitutional. Formally, the law remains in force, although in fact the last time it was applied in 1961.
      Currently, the judge can prohibit the release of certain information (the so-called gag order), if he considers that it may interfere with the administration of justice. The revolutions of 1905, 1917, "PERESTROIKA" always took place with slogans for the secession of territories, calls for the government to resign (overthrow). And now in the Russian media, and especially in the blogosphere, in the environment of right and left rights defenders, a similar trend is emerging. Where is the Russian equivalent of the Smith Act? Without it, the normal implementation of the notorious "freedom of speech" is impossible. The USA all over the world impose only ONE (their) correct opinion.

    How can the Russian media shape the positive image of Russia if they belong to outright crooks? As they say: who orders music, that girl also dances ... By the way, the hidden subtext is that financing media is not cheap pleasure, which means those who carry it out are not poor people. These non-poor people, feeding from Russia, are waging a frank struggle against it ... I.e. those who must be an elite, sometimes even being it, conduct activities against the country. Look: Kasyanov was the prime minister - now a tough appositionist. How could such a person lead a cabinet? What activities did he conduct there? Luzhkov was the mayor, and upon dismissal he immediately fell out of the country ... People, in my opinion, are using us as something one-time ...

They are afraid to go to Krasnodar themselves - 35 km. But you can’t drive them out to sea at all. Fear. They weave such things about us in America.

        and the point, dear, is that through discussions at least somehow get closer to the truth, so that ordinary citizens of both sides would know the other side not from the lips of the media, but through communication. Pluralism of opinions! Naturally, the discussions should take place according to generally accepted rules, reasonedly, without splashing saliva a la "americos, s, etc."
        To get to the truth, you need to listen to the opinions of opponents, evaluate the evidence provided by each (and not speculation), and only then make decisions - who is right and who is wrong

After all, these media do the will of those who pay them. To start putting them in order, our false human rights activists will conquer in the West in the form of Alekseeva, and the Germans and the Ponomarevs with them ... To deal with such media as they are now raising the issue of NGOs in the State Duma? It is the same. What to do? In no country do their own citizens act so meanly against their own country, except in Russia. What is it, what is it called? Our football team lost, the opposition rejoices, Russia's failure in space, the opposition has fun, anti-Russian laws are passed in the United States, the opposition not only does not protest, but even tries to make additions to make Russia more painful. What kind of liberal opposition am I? Such that if Russia was lucky in some respects on a global level, then liberals have sour faces. What kind of people are they then - Russians ???

    The topic is very interesting. Poor diplomats :) Which of you turned on the satellite receiver in the West? How many free Russian channels can I find? How informative and watchable are they? Maybe the Jews are to blame? :) Probably, they are also to blame for the rampant corruption and sloppiness. About Stalin, the image of the USSR, by our media, was drawn idealistically. Only, however, always climbs out. In order for the image to be attractive, you must first restore basic order in the country. It's a shame and pain to look at the Russian bureaucrats who came to conduct a revelry in Ireland with money stolen from old people and children. Even the locals, they disgust. If order is put in place and the list of free entertaining and informative satellite channels in all languages ​​is expanded, with a sharp improvement in their quality, then the image of Russia and its culture will become attractive.

    For now, you can only express everything with one saying: "Do not blame the mirror, since the face is crooked"

    I don’t know from what deaf villages the majority writes on this topic, but certainly few of them traveled around the world. So in order:

    The author brings everything together in one pile - the image of the country abroad is one thing, the events of 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX are another. I understand that Amer. media conducted inform. war, because they were one of the shadow parties to the conflict. There is nothing to be surprised at. By the way, many European media were neutral at that time and said that the Russian Federation could restore the status quo under the UN mandate.

    Regarding the image of Russia abroad. Many Europeans travel to Russia and many have the impression not only on TV:

    What image do you want if in Russia most problems can be solved with a bribe? Including the police and other authorities right up to the top? If the president flies to the Kuban to watch the flood in a half-unbuttoned shirt, when hundreds have died? If officials with flashing lights can block avenues in Moscow and hundreds of people will be waiting for them? If you can be put in jail without explanation? If the police and officials calmly violate traffic rules? If newly built buildings collapse and kill people, because the norms were not observed there and undocumented migrants work there? If the courts depend on the opinion of the authorities? When do our compatriots get drunk as an insole on airplanes? When are there millions of Russian-speaking migrants in Europe who work with a shovel? When European tourists crossing the border by bus are charged by customs at the customs so that "everything is fast." etc. etc. For any European, this is nonsense! For any normal person in my opinion, too. So you need to solve your problems and your attitude will change by itself.

    By the way, my impression is that Europe often criticizes Russia, because they have not lost hope that Russia has become a developed country. it is still close to Europe. And it was part of it until the age of 17. For example, China is criticized differently - hopelessly, i.e. and so everything is clear - asia.

    Information for the author of the article in app. Europe can easily receive Russian channels, including in English and other languages ​​- for example, Russia today. They are of little interest to anyone, because the facts described above spoil the whole picture, and with some kind of ostentatious transfers you can’t help much. Although contacts in our interests should certainly be developed.

      Grandfather Lenin was right. He just didn’t succeed with other grandfathers from the CPSU (b). Indeed, it is necessary to pay less attention to the Russophobian howl and to engage in urgent matters: to modernize industry, produce competitive goods, improve the quality and standard of living of its people. Here, uncle Lukashenko also talks all the time about how good it is in Belarus, but nearby in Poland meat costs 2 times cheaper and salaries 3 times higher.
