Washington plans to increase spending on anti-Russian propaganda

67
Washington intends to increase spending on advocacy against the Russian Federation, reports Look with reference to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Benjamin Ziff.




“It’s rather not about propaganda, but about counter-propaganda, opposing the efforts of Russia itself,” said Ziff at the Senate hearings.

In the past fiscal year ending September 30, Washington allocated $ 66 million "to support civil society and independent media in Eurasia and Southeastern Europe."

In the 2016 fiscal year, these expenses, according to the diplomat, should increase by 26% and reach $ 83 million.

He stressed that this amount is provided for "the budget request of US President Barack Obama." At the same time, Ziff noted that “it is supposed to work for this money not only in the Russian-speaking information space, but, for example, in the Western Balkans”.

Concluding his speech, the representative of the State Department called on lawmakers not to save on agitation and propaganda. “To vote for such allocations means to ensure the preservation of the entire current world order,” he said.

      yes, they have been trying for a long time in this direction ... their same films, the bad guys are necessarily armed with Kalash, and if the actor in the story is Russian, then the bandit from the Russian mafia must be a bandit from the Russian mafia and everywhere the Russians are to blame - the film "gravity" for example ... and that on their zomboyaschikam they say about us-wow ... I'd better not say anything ... and then they openly admitted that they would charge the press with dollars so that they would write another wave of nasty things about our brother ... very nice, a great way to "restart relationships "

        And what? Everything is logical for them. In a military way (hybrid wars, etc.) we cannot shake. Attempts to economically destabilize the situation also failed miserably. There remains the old proven way - to undermine us ideologically. And we need to get ready for this, namely to send the entire liberoid riffraff for the 101st km.

          How do you imagine that ???

          The FBI is on the alert, and any propaganda in favor of Russia (if it penetrates pages or screens) will be immediately censored and pressed ...

          PS As far as I understand, you don’t like the dominance of all kinds of aggravation in newspapers, magazines, on the screen, shot-written according to Western standards ??? Well, from this YOURSELF at home you have to start, so that OUR magazines for candy wrappers will not be sold ...

      It’s not a matter of candy wrappers ... In such a one as Psaki, at least a ton of bucks should be crammed into the output - there will not even be zero, but a minus ...

      We need our media, various channels on / in which smart, energetic young people and wise experienced bison would work ... We need a well-planned, designed to counter-fight with their propaganda and their ideology ...

      Example: they spread to the whole world that our VKS bombed 6 (!!!) hospitals in Syria ... And this despite the fact that they do this in Afghanistan ... As a result, they figured out that there were no hospitals in five cities and in one - both stood and stood untouched ...

      However, who in the world knows about this ??? The world heard what was presented to him: Russians destroyed five hospitals !!! And that’s it !!! And the fact that this is not true is known only to us ...

      How many people are threatening us with different Hague courts ... That's why we need to attract nonsense for every trepidation - both ordinary journalists and employees of various structures who do not monitor their language ...

      THEY understand only one language: the language of money and power ... So you need to reason with money (fines) to reason ...

    And as far as I heard, the RT channel cut funding, due to sanctions and a drop in oil prices.
    In general, RT needs to create a new program called Anti-News (antinews), in which to show videos from American and European news and refute them with iron evidence, maybe then Western journalists will finally begin to draw information from verified sources, rather than feed the public with rumors and frank a lie.

    For some reason, hearing about the propaganda of thought mainly about the media. But they have an integrated approach. For example, my favorite toy is Wolfenstein. There is so much anti-Russian propaganda in the new part of "The New Order". For example, that near Stalingrad the red army scattered in panic at the sight of a new fascist weapon ... citizens with flowers greeted the Germans liberators ... well, etc. Mattress covers, on the contrary, the spirit of freedom and so on, never gave up, partisan movements ...
    How many people from the younger generation enjoy computer games? Where are our patriotic games? Why aren't they subsidized and developed?

    It is, rather, not about propaganda, but about counter-propaganda, counteraction to the efforts of Russia itself

    Why be shy? When the goal itself determined: "To vote for such an appropriation is to ensure the preservation of the entire existing world order." That’s all said. We are the main ones, all the remaining imperfections and we will teach them. We hear this song even without additional appropriations, even from irons.

    Since there is more to lie to the faithful apologists-gozmans and others than it is now impossible - the price of crap per kg will greatly increase. But the cost-effectiveness of the State Department, accordingly, will approach the cost-effectiveness of training the "moderate Syrian opposition."

    Washington plans to increase spending on anti-Russian propaganda
    All the same, they no longer succeed in lying.
    It would be worse if they instead ordered a new submarine, for example. Their warships are now a more serious problem for us.

    Very stupid! Just like almost everything the current US administration does. With us, almost every normal Russian knows that the main ENEMY is the USA and also England!

    The US is ready to jump out of its pants, if only to spoil Russia.
