Nuland complained to the US Senate about the lack of funds to counter the "Russian propaganda"

31
In the US Department of State complain that the United States has ceased to have enough money to counter the "Russian propaganda", which Washington sees as its mouthpiece Russia Today. According to this channel, a statement about the "lack of funds" was made by US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland, speaking at a hearing in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Senate.


Nuland complained to the US Senate about the lack of funds to counter the "Russian propaganda"


It seems that the officials of the US administration appear in the Senate solely in order to once again knock out financial resources for the activities of the represented department - and the more money the better. The ideal option for receiving money from the budget from senators in recent times have been statements about “Russian aggression” and “Russian propaganda.”

Victoria Nuland said that the budget allocations for “fighting Russian propaganda” are at the level of 100 million dollars. According to Nuland, "this is not enough." The US Assistant Secretary of State announced that Russia is spending about 400 million dollars to work with journalists and promote its interests through the use of media resources.

From the statement of Nuland:
Our level of media funding is even lower than during the cold war period.


Commenting on the statements of Nuland, RT reports that her words about 100 million dollars to support the American and pro-American media are a clear lie. The budget of the Governing Council alone for broadcasting, which controls Radio Liberty and Voice of America, exceeds 750 million dollars.

      If the low-budget "Russia Today" gets Nuland out with its propaganda, it means that it is shooting with the truth. Truth is the most terrible weapon for the State Department. Respect to Margarita Simonyan and her team!

        Well, I would not call RT a low-budget organization. There the budget is 1 lard and not at all rubles. but it's worth it. for it beats Western propaganda most of all.

          It is banal, but every time this topic pops up, I want to watch it again and again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML_IjppR_SU how “Kremlin propaganda” works, or Simonyan, a bear and beaver juice. "And yes, beaver juice has not been drunk for five years, 2 years have eaten canned hedgehogs, now pickled mice are in trend."

        There would be no "Russia Today", they would ask for money to fight the radio "Mayak" or "Keks FM" - there and in the Senate they do not really think about why the State Department needs money, the main thing is how much and what will we get from this! not a state in the full sense of the word, it is a huge corporation - a closed joint stock company (CJSC) "United States of America"! laughing

      Yes, not for cookies. The Ukrainians did not work out the cookies, but for the Moscow dumplings, where she goes every time, as she comes to Moscow.

        Here is such an obsessive and almost abusive word "mentality" (you understand). So, "this one" again and again singles out the Kiev (no matter how abusively to call it) hohlovodov with his arrogance, stupidity and greed. Not only do they refuse to pay the debts, but in violation of the decision taken by themselves to refuse from Russian gas, they are still asked to give gas, and even at a reduced price, and even without prepayment. Niguyaze !!!

    Poor, unfortunate, not enough for confectionery. And the damned Russian propaganda simply seizes. And with the help of the only TV channel "RT" against all kinds of "Radio Liberty", "Free Europe", "Voice of America", "CNN", "Euronews" and other riffraffs.

    The US has a difficult task: to declare the truth a lie, and American propaganda the truth, because the truth, as it was in the bag, is difficult to hide.
    And you need a lot of money to deceive, a lot.
    For those who are in their service, they themselves are also unlikely to believe their statements, in this matter, the main thing is high payment for services, and appetite, as you know, comes with meals. So the US has to pay a lot.
    And it would be nice if the State Department’s Wishlist were paid with American funds, but they use funds from other countries.

    Please note that most Western problems, in their opinion, should be addressed by additional funding. They don’t care about more fundamental things (honor, conscience, patriotism, morale, knowledge, skills, etc.). Everything just Give money !.
    Like - Obama has a small (members ..) rating, you need a few lard dollars and we will do it 6 times more than Putin wink

    Apparently, in the United States, the crisis also took off and the initial products for cookie dough (flour, chicken eggs, butter, milk, etc.) jumped substantially in price.

    Ah, they spent 5 billion dead presidents on Euromaidan, but only 100 million on RT’s opposition? Yeah, I just believed it right now.
    If we bring together all the infusions into NGOs, into all kinds of "Dozhdi" "EkhiMoskvy", all kinds of movements for the separation of Siberia, etc., then a very, very large amount will come out.
    The good news is that in spite of all these "replenishments" - we do not slide into the abyss of the Maidans, but slowly climb the mountain!

    From the statement of Nuland:
    Our level of media financing even lower than during the cold war.

    Is this literal translation interesting? If yes, then the word "even" suggests that this dying animal Nordland assesses the current situation as harsher than the period of the Cold War.

    And in the photo of the erysipelas, it’s quite happy as if a kilogram of cookies were gobbled up or our dumplings were apparently liked. Well, a person simply wants money in addition to a salary, which is incomprehensible.
