Washington plans to increase spending on anti-Russian propaganda

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’ve been trying in this direction for a long time ... the same bad films of them are necessarily armed with Kalash, and if the Russian actor in the story is sure to be a gangster from the Russian mafia and Russians are to blame everywhere - the film "gravity" for example ... and that according to their zombies, they say something about us-uh ... 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, great way to "reset relations "

          In addition to pieces of paper with the faces of the dead presidents. Scalp Natives of America. some sort of export of "democracy" (Democritus is probably turning over in his grave) what do they have?
          Their entire “economy” is built on dead presidents. there is no this "economy" Fiction. Pure Fraud!

        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.

          So you really leave the "liberoid riffraff".
          Solve problems on the spot, it is not worth spreading the infection throughout Russia.
          On the ground and without you it is full of this "good."

          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 propaganda, thoughts mainly about the media. But they have an integrated approach. For example, my favorite Wolfenstein toy. In the new part of "The New Order" there is so much anti-Russian propaganda. For example, that near Stalingrad the red army fled in panic at the sight of a new fascist weapon ... citizens with flowers met the German liberators ... well, etc. Mattresses, 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? With slogans about a healthy lifestyle, you will tear a small part from the computer. And since you can’t tear it away, why not use it and find an approach to this audience

    Nothing will work out for them. Russia, unlike the USSR, is not closed to free visits and business. Although the information is filtered on both sides, we praise the Internet for freedom of speech in each individual blog. As they say, what they wanted was received. Information is a thing double-edged and quickly verified in the modern world. As Julian Semenov said: In this world there are very few secrets that could not be calculated.

    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.

    In this case, we need to increase funding for Russia Today.

    "the representative of the State Department urged lawmakers not to save on campaigning and propaganda" ...

    It is time to review not only our approaches to the information struggle against the West, but also the criminal legislation of the Russian Federation ... And also to tighten the notorious law on NGOs ...

    I don’t remember what kind of management there is - it seems that the 5th in the KGB was responsible for organizations and citizens harmful to the state system ... Of course, I wouldn’t like to resume all this, because - the forest is cut - the chips fly, but the chips it’s getting more painful and more, but you need to screw the nuts all over the pro-Western dominance ...

    And you can’t spare money for our Rusha Tudei ... And the guys there are smart to pick up, as they are now expressed in modern - creative ...

    Washington intends to increase spending on advocacy against the Russian Federation

    Well, der..o they themselves will knead or go to it, money allocated for shovels and "workers" (all kinds of "voices", "echoes", "lies"). Now they will start throwing ... an oncoming fan.

    Since lying to faithful apologists-gozmanes and others is more than now impossible - the price of crap per kg will increase significantly. But the State Department’s cost-effectiveness, 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!
